Experience Island Living: 8 Incredible Isla Mujeres Airbnbs - Updated 2019

Updated Jul 04, 2019

If you find yourself dreaming of crystal blue water, white sand, and scorching hot sun, look no further than Isla Mujeres. This small island is located in the Caribbean Sea, just a 25-minute ferry ride from the popular tourist city of Cancun. While most tourists stay in the hotel zone of Cancun for the resort and spa experience, the vacation rentals on Isla Mujeres will have you choosing otherwise. From luxury condos to beachfront villas, it’s hard to find a home that doesn’t have a breathtaking view of the warm Caribbean waters. Take a look at some of Isla Mujeres’ most attractive Airbnb listings:

1. Casa Perlita (from USD 285)

Think of Casa Perlita as your home away from home. This oceanfront house is as cozy and inviting as it gets, and the hosts want nothing more than for you to enjoy all it has to offer. Let’s talk location. Although Isla Mujeres is a very small island, location still makes a big difference in your overall experience, and Casa Perlita’s is unbeatable. Aside from being an oceanfront oasis, the home is just steps away from Loncheria La Lomita, a wildly popular restaurant that is perfect for grabbing a drink while watching the crashing waves. Inside the house, you’ll find modern furnishings, open airy bedrooms, and breathtaking views. Still not convinced? Here’s what Ana Maria had to say about her visit to Casa Perlita:

“Absolutely wonderful home! It is perfectly decorated and in a great location away from the busy strip in terms of noise but still walking distance to all the restaurants. The two pools are lovely and the entire place was clean and came with drinking water. We loved it so much we wanted to buy the home! Would definitely come back!” - Ana Maria, Airbnb

“I have stayed on the island many times on the island. This was by far the nicest unit I have stayed in. The views are gorgeous, the unit is even better than what the pictures show and the location is amazing. The owner Johann is outstanding. Extremely easy to get a hold of, extremely helpful and a really nice person. We were VERY lucky to have been able to stay at Isla 33 and with Johann. Isla Mujeres is one of my favorite places in the world to travel to and if available this will be the place I stay moving forward. Thank you to Johann and to the friendly staff for making our vacation perfect.” - Brian, Airbnb

The bed was super comfortable and the shower area is pretty romantic. A good little perk was the beach bag and towels provided for our day trips to any of the beaches.” - Kristin, Airbnb
