Overview

About the property

Authentic Mexican neighborhood. Best value for a two bedroom on the Island.

Beautiful ocean view 2 bedroom first floor duplex in a quiet neighborhood. Centrally located Mid Island and 1 block from the Caribbean Ocean. Steps away from the coastal nature walk leading back to Playa Norte, voted top 7 beache in the world. The Island of Isla Mujeres is just a 15 minute ferry ride from Cancun. The Island is ranked the safest Island in the Caribbean with the Mexican Navy stationed on the island. Golf carts are an awesome means of transportation .

We have been coming to this area for 15 years often several times a year and have fallen in love with the people, the sights, the beautiful beaches with shops and restaurants galore. We bought and named Casa Mia Josefa in April of 2015 and have spent months renovating the bottom floor. We have put in 3 large A/C units and new beautiful mahogany doors throughout. New large capacity Refrigerator. Custom and Locally crafted furniture throughout. 40” full HD TV. With Netflix Vudo and Net TV capable. We also have Vonage as the house phone that will provide communication to almost any where. The 2 queen beds, we wish we had here, they are top of the line and better than what we have here, so comfortable. ! The new stairs lead up to the unfinished 2nd floor but the view from the 2nd floor and roof are spectacular with views of both sides of the island. While the roof is unfinished you will have access and table and chairs are provided for your comfort We have made every attempt for you to have a vacation of your dreams, we have provided maps of the Island as well as Cancan with special golf cart tour of the Island and maps of Cancun to Playa Del Carmen. We have provided Adult drinks and mixers to help take the edge off a hard day travel. The maps offer directions and reviews of every shop, bar and restaurant on the island. We have 2 Mexican Mobile for you to use on the island. Ask Angeles about using. Angeles is our property manager and is minutes away. Our knowledge and years in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula can help you realize you’re dreams from simply enjoying this special island or seeing colonial cities and Chechen Itza one of the 7 wonders of the world only 2 hours away. With guidance to finding the best prices. We also have rentals in Nearby Playa del Carman if you are looking for a multi destination vacation in this area. FINAL NOTE. THERE IS NO CONSTRUCTION THE TIMES WE HAVE GUEST.

Isla Mujeres at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great 2 weeks at Casa Mia Josefa in February 2017. The property was exactly as advertised. Communication with the owners was easy and their representatives on the island took good care of us. Although we visited Isla at a very busy time, returning to our clean quiet house at the end of the day was always a pleasure. Thanks Kevin and Josie for sharing your island home with us!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental. Everything was as stated/shown on the rental listing. Very clean place with everything we needed for the week. Only thing missing that I prefer was a safe. We also loved the roof top...it was a great way to start and end our day relaxing on the loungers. We look forward to staying here again December 2018.

The house was cozy and functional

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described. It was cozy and comfortable with two bedrooms and one bath, sufficient for four. There is another floor that was being worked on while we were there so it was a bit noisy at times, but it was understandable. The second floor was completed while we were there and during the remodeling of the second floor the water pressure was improved on the first floor where we stayed.

Stay was okay

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was just okay. The house was just okay to us, although, probably fine given the price. However, there were definitely things we think were lacking, even for the cheaper price. We had said upfront we would have 6 occupants of the house. We were only provided towels for 4 people, therefore, we had to go buy towels and wash clothes for our additional people. In addition, it stated there would be shampoo, soap etc. for us to use....one small travel size isn't enough for even one person for 7 days, let alone 6, however, that is what was provided. There were only 4 rolls of toilet paper for 6 people, definitely not enough for a full 7 days. Again, we had to go purchase these items at the store. There is a semi-automatic washer and dryer, but no instructions, not easy to figure out if you have never used one. In addition, we almost ran out of the bottled water in the house. We tried calling the house manager from the home phone and could not get in touch. We text the owners of the house and didn't receive a return text for 2 days. They did send the house manager over, but they only brought water and never showed us how to use the washer/dryer. We took our laundry to a full service laundromat and that was better anyways. Our daughter had some Birkenstocks with her. She had them at the house and one of the days the house manager brought water, they showed up missing. We looked everywhere. The following day, after water was delivered, miraculously the shoes showed back up by the kitchen table. If these small items were improved/changed, the experience would have been much better. You are definitely in the middle of the locals, so if you don't want that experience (it was a great learning experience for our kids), stay on the far north or south side of the island.

Owner's Response: Hello Tiffany, We are truly sorry that you did not find comfort with us. Our manager visit our guest daily. As you read in our many reviews, our manager is a highlight to our guest. Angeles repeatedly asked how everything was going and the reply from the family was always, "Everything is fine." We have learned to limit the stock to prevent abuse and to provide what is needed day to day. The stock provided at arrival is rarely for the entire visit. Also, we are not a hotel. We simply open our home to you. We provide well above what most owners provide. As far as us, our feedback is always that we "bend over backwards to please our guest. We provide all towels and soaps, water to our guest. In our ad we state the washer is manual. You fill manual with water then push the on button. We also encourage to use the local laundry's that wash 10 lbs for 3-4 dollars. We also provide Vonage phone service as well as local mobile phone upon request as well as instructions in our 40 page Welcome Package. The front cover sheet directs you to instructions and for calling. Our managers are of impeccable reputation. I would suggest especially with kids involved that you would be very careful before you slander the people who are trying to take care of you. I am still a little confused with, "the shoes are missing, oh no, there are here." And please if you do ever return to our Island, please, please stay FAR north or FAR south from us. Personally, I am very proud of Angeles and Hugo for the amazing care they give to our guest. Regards, Kevin and Josefa Owner s

About Kevin and Josie Throgmorton

I have worked 30 years in the construction field. Mostly refineries and chemical plants. I am now semi retired, having worked blue collar all my life I worked hard and play hard. Together we are realizing our dreams. My lovely wife is retired from the medical field as a cardio tech. This is our home away from home.

Kevin and Josie Throgmorton purchased this house in 2015

Why Kevin and Josie Throgmorton chose Isla Mujeres

We have traveled through out the Caribbean over the last 15 years seeing most islands. In that same time we have been to this area every year at least once and sometime several times. We have been to 8 ruin sites. And spent some time in every town from Cancun to Tulum. From Merida to Valladolid. Out first love was Playa Del Carmen. We have a place there, but it has grown so big. Isla Mujeres became the perfect spot. We fell into this property. The location on the Island is perfect. Nature trail across the street. One block off the ocean with small beaches. Quite and beautiful, yet only 10 minutes from anywhere on the island. Top 7 ratted beache in the world. Safest island in the Caribbean. Isolated yet close to everything.

What makes this house unique

Authentic Mexican Neighborhood ! We offer this as the best value on the island for a Newly remodeled 2 bedroom house with AC and the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. We know the area and will help guide you in the most tailored custom vacation of your dreams. Tell us what you are looking for and we will guide you and help you avoid some of the tourist traps and pit falls. For the basics we know where the deal are.
