8. Nice condo with the best view

With its stylish interior design, rooftop pool, and secluded location, this condo is one of the best on Isla Mujeres. Although it is conveniently located only 5 minutes from the wildly popular Playa Norte, this home still offers a quiet setting to retreat to after a full day touring the island and soaking up the blazing sun. Inside the condo, you’ll find a beautifully decorated living and dining area, kitchen, and cozy bedroom. You’ll also enjoy the rest of the amenities condos offer such as a rooftop terrace with a pool and lounging chairs to watch the sun rise and set.

“Away from the main downtown area, we had a great time. Secluded, quiet, amazing ocean view. Watching the sunrise from the upstairs pool area was a dream. 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

9. Casa Perlita

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
