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 beach 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. Our mid island location makes for a perfect spot for your vacation needs. Many restaurants all within 3 blocks as well as several convenience stores. We are 1 block from the chic Isla 33 featuring the Topaz restaurant. 1 Block from a public park and 1 block from scenic coastal exercise and trail walk. We are located just 10 minutes from the famous Playa Northe, or find your own spot from the 100's of beaches on the island.

We are located in an safe quiet traditional neighborhood with steel locking gate to help you feel secure. We have a safe for your valuables located in the unit.

We have been coming to this area for 15 years 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. We are one of the few that provide the very best TV and Wi-Fi available on the island. We also have Vonage as the house phone that will provide communication to almost anywhere in North America to stay in touch with loved ones back home. Sleep well on our top of the line Serta queen beds, the new stairs lead up to the 2nd floor and roof. The rooftop offer spectacular 360 views of the island. Enjoy the Caribbean sun and breeze under our new gondola. This is truly an awesome spot to unwind. The house was built on one on the high spots on the island with always a nice ocean breeze.

The view from the roof are spectacular with views of both sides of the island. 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 cold adult drinks 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 Phones for you to use on the island. Ask Drew or Judi our Property managers for details. Our property managers are just 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 feel free to ask questions. We also have a Timeshare in Nearby Playa del Carmen if you are looking for a multi destination vacation in this area.

About Kevin and Josie Throgmorton

I have worked 35 years in the construction field. I am now semi-retired. I work by contract mostly large jobs as a construction manager. Born and raised in St. Louis. Served in the military and now have lived in the Philadelphia area for the past 30+ years. I enjoy woodworking, metalworking, fishing, photography, and flying my drone. I love most is spending time on the Island. My lovely wife is retired from the medical field as a cardio tech. She is a Philly girl thru and thru. She enjoys spending time with the 5 grand children, ages 5 thru 21 years old. This is our home away from home. Together we are realizing our dreams.

Kevin and Josie Throgmorton purchased this house in 2015

Why Kevin and Josie Throgmorton chose Isla Mujeres

We have traveled throughout the Caribbean over the last 20 years seeing a lot of great places. 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, this is a great location to explore the Yucatan. Our first love was Playa Del Carmen. We have a Timeshare there that we love, but Playa has grown so big. Isla Mujeres became the perfect spot. We fell into this property. The location on the Island is perfect. You have the island feel, the shopping, entertainment, safety. With the island being only 4.2 miles long, here at Casa Mia Josefa we are at both close and far away at the same time. We have the nature trail across the street. One block off the ocean with small beaches yet 100's of beaches around the Island. Quite and beautiful, yet only 10 minutes from anywhere on the island. Top rated beach Playa Northe is minutes away. Rated safest island in the Caribbean. Isolated yet close to everything. Great Ethnic Neighborhood. Yet next door to Isla 33, parks, and nature trails as well as a short walk to convenience stores. When we married a long time ago we said we would not go to the same place twice yet we are compelled to come back. This area is simply amazing, even magical. Time stands still and the beauty never fades. The warm and caring happy people will captivate you at once. Every day unfolds with childlike wonder, and every day is new. I cannot describe the magic, but everyone uses the same description. It is the feeling you have when you know you have found the right spot for you.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, Location. 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. The rooftop views and breeze are amazing. 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 pitfalls. For the basics we know where the deal are.

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!

Worth the price

  • 4 of 5

Cool experience being in La Gloria neighborhood. It was as expected based on owners description. No frills, but that is what we wanted. There are great restaurants within walking distance and the large grocery store is a nice walk from the home. I wish there had been some beach towels and a beach blanket but we made do. The upper deck is a nice place for a drink and enjoying the sunset

Very Nice1

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful 10 day vacation at Casa Mia Josefa in Isla Mujeres! The first floor, 2 bedroom, apartment was perfect for what my wife and I needed.

The queen beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows, and the air conditioning felt good with the warm Isla weather outside. There were 2 built in couches in the living room which were rather hard, but we didn’t spend much time in the house. The kitchen wasn’t real big, but had everything you needed with a stove, nice size fridge, and a microwave. We never ran out of bottled water with a big water cooler with an extra bottle of water, if needed. There is also a nice size dining room with a big dining table and chairs. There is an enclosed patio with a table and 2 chairs and also you can park a golf cart in there at night.

The wifi worked perfectly and the phone was a nice extra also. The TV had a couple of English speaking channels and there was also Netflix, which was nice too.

There is a beautiful view from the rooftop of the Caribbean sea on one side and the bay of Isla Mujeres and the Cancun skyline on the other side. They have 2 loungers up there to enjoy the sun, if you want to. There is usually a nice breeze coming off the Caribbean to cool you off.

The caretakers of the house, Hugo and Angeles, were so helpful to us with any problems that came up or suggestions on where to eat or things to see. They are so friendly and are so glad we got to meet them and can call them our friends now!

The house is a ways from downtown, but we rented a golf cart so we could come and go as we wanted. The taxi’s are very easy to get as they are always driving by on the main road a block away if you don’t want to rent a cart.

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.
