About Ashley Wilkens
Todd & I are blessed with 4 kids (I can't call them children anymore) and our first Grandson. Our love for Isla Mujeres back in 2003 when we decided to take a spur-of-the-moment day trip to Isla from Cancun… like the majority of people have do. It took us over an hour to get to Isla via a small fishing boat back then.. now it is only a quick 20 minute ferry ride on a fancy boat now.. but you feel like you are in a totally different world from the hustle & bustle of Cancun.. YIKES! Little did we know the impact that Isla Mujeres would have on us! I remember the feeling I had when I first stepped off the boat the very 1st trip to the island...it's so hard to "explain" to people what Isla is like.. but there is something very special and magical about Isla that has stolen my heart for over 15 years & still have that feeling every time that I arrive on the island. Our family fell in love with the calm, crystal clear warm Caribbean beaches, LOVE the simplicity of the island in general & daily island living (slip into "mañana mode", the local Isleños are so welcoming every time I see them, wonderful community & family values, enjoying traditional Mexican dishes & the freshest seafood you will ever put in your mouth, and it's so safe (it's like it's very own country... away from Mexico's bad reputation) The island has a huge Navy base on the island & I am down there all the time without my husband (he still has his job in the states) & I have NEVER EVER felt unsafe.. I actually feel safer in Isla than here in the states. We were married in Isla Mujeres on August 1, 2004, which is exactly 1 year from our casual day trip that would affect & change our lives forever. We had a beautiful sunset beach wedding ceremony at Zoetry Villa Rolandi Hotel with a traditional mariachi band & lots of tequila. We come home to Isla many times each year & have many truly wonderful friends as well.. We hope you enjoy the island & our home as much as we do! Keep it simple..Life is short ~
Ashley Wilkens purchased this House in 2013
Why Ashley Wilkens chose Isla Mujeres
We would drive our golf cart around the island and always would comment on how we really loved this house and on one of our many trips to Isla Mujeres we saw that the house was listed "for sale"..THAT was our moment to have our very own "slice of paradise". There is always a constant breeze coming off the Caribbean while soaking up the sun in the pool and then heading up to the rooftop entertaining area & chilling out after a long day in the sun ~ with your favorite wine or cerveza in your hand as you watch the sun fall behind the horizon, painting the sky shades of red and pink, and I thank God for all the beauty he created for us ~ we are so grateful and blessed.
What makes this House unique
You truly feel 'away from it all' and it's the ultimate place to completely RELAX & RENEW...ISLAnd style! Keep it simple and SLOW DOWN to embrace God's beautiful creation. Life is Good.

Amazing Island-Amazing People
From Ashley the home owner to Stacy the house manager we could not have asked for a better team for our first time on the Island. Thank you for opening up your BEAUTIFUL home and thank you for the personal care we felt the whole time there. We loved the home and its location. I would highly recommend this property and the team that comes with it!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you again Joe & Misty
As beautiful as it looks!!! A true gem!
Casa Paraiso was a the most relaxing place we have ever been as a family. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the house manager. Stacy Fernandez was amazing!!! I sent her a list of groceries to help us get started and she had everything ready for us. I cannot say enough about Stacy! Any little thing or problem you may have, she responds in a heartbeat.
The house speaks for itself. It is a true little paradise. The morning sunrises are some of the best we have ever seen. This house gives you the best of both worlds! You can go to the roof top for happy hour and enjoy the most amazing sunsets as well. We did this every evening after our days at the beach and the beach clubs. The house is centrally located and is easy to get to everything. One perk about the house is it is located right next to Topaz (bar/restaurant)! It is walking distance only a few feet away and it has the best mac n cheese we have ever had. My adult teenage kids went here all the time for the mac and happy hour!
Finally, the owner Ashley and Todd Wilkens are just amazing and are very passionate about the home they allowed to be shared with us. We are very thankful that they share this beautiful place. We cannot wait to go back. My kids had one of the best trips of their lives here on this beautiful island!
Final Note: If you are looking for a great place to hang out and relax, we loved Captain Dulche! Best pool and swim up bar on the island!
Perfect location. Comfy bed and linens. Plenty of towels. Awesome pool. Amazing view.
Smell the sea and feel the sky, let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic!!!
Casa Paraíso is amazing. Ashley answered every question and request I had before and during our visit. The house is beautifully appointed and a perfect place to unwind. Stacy was also very helpful and accessible during our stay. The location is fantastic and if I am ever fortunate enough to spend more time on this wonderful island, I would love to stay at Casa Paraíso again!
Awesome property perfect for what we were looking for on our 34 year anniversary thanks
Rainy days in Isla!
Have stayed at Casa Paraiso several times now but this is the first time it has rained almost everyday! Because of the location, we were able to get out of the house during dry spells and go to the grocery store as well as watch the waves. The house manager, Stacy, and owner, Ashley, were very welcoming and answered all of questions and needs promptly! The palapas also provided protection for our husbands most of the time except during the most heavy rains. We will definitely be staying here again as it is well located, equipped and comfortable.
Thank you so much for the awesome review of Casa Paraiso...absolutely loved having you back to stay. I was so happy to be on the island staying at our other home, Casa Mar Azul during the time you were there so I was able to stop by and visit with ya'll and learned how to play "chickenfoot"... I LOVE IT!!! Look forward to having you and your awesome friends back to stay... and play some more Chickenfoot.. You guys are the best! See you soon! ~ Ashley

The island is the ideal place to Refresh~Rejuvenate~Renew while have the time of your life!Casa Paraiso sits directly in front of the Caribbean Ocean and there are so many local & quaint, small shops & family-run delicious restaurants that are within walking distance. La Gloria is midway on the island (north to south). Beautiful beaches and crystal clear water ---great for swimming and snorkeling. Despite being a small island, Isla Mujeres has fantastic restaurants, nightclubs and spas. Super friendly locals.
