About Ashley Wilkens

Todd & I are blessed with 4 kids (I can't call them children anymore) 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 "manana 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 made some truly wonderful friends as well.. We hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we do! KEEP IT SIMPLE ~ Life is way to short not to ~

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 stop and embrace God's creations.. Life is Good.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had stayed Jan 14 for two weeks with another couple and would return to Isla in a heartbeat. Ashley, one of the owners, was very accommodating both with all of my pre visit questions and even with a follow up call while we were there. Great to have such a personal touch though miles away. Casa Paraiso is a very comfortable place with many of the creature comforts one would want. We did though feel that more could be done with the outside amenities such as lounge chairs and cushions and was happy to hear that that is on their list. Having been new owners of a rental property ourselves we get how all things take time and we are sure that this place will not only improve over time but will def be on our return list in the future. Isla itself is a special island. We -four women in our fifties- felt absolutely safe at all times no matter what time of day or place. We did not rent a cart but opted to secure four bicycles on our own which in itself we all would highly recommend as a way to get around the island. With so many great places to eat, knowing we can pedal it off made our indulgence much more accepting! The people,both local and those who travel to Isla regularly, are some of the nicest people we have come across. Most tourists we talked to gave been coming to Isla for years and their kids are now coming back with their kids. Safe you bet - hospitable and accommodating -absolutely. We can honestly say that Isla is our Mexico. Thank you Ashley and Todd for making our holiday a memorable one!

Amazing!! Best overall place we've stayed so far!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Isla for many years now...and stay in a different place each time...so we feel we have a pretty good idea on how one compares to another. So far...Casa Paraiso is hands down our favorite! Starting from the gorgeous view Caribbean view from the beds, roof tops and pool (although pretty chilly water in February)...you get used to it quickly, (if you take the initial plunge)... and it's a great place to relax, unwind and watch other vacationers enjoy the island! It's only the second place we've ever stayed with American Satellite TV...and 3 of them, at that. (Very important to my husband who likes his news in the morning...and something to watch before bed). So close to Centro, Maldecon & Playa Norte, you could go without a golf cart...(however, my husband has a phobia of not having wheels at his disposal at all times...so that is never a concern for us)...so it's nice that Paraiso has its own private off the street parking area. It's far enough away that the Centro traffic and night life doesn't keep you awake at night. Ashley and Todd manage their own properties...very high on my list...since I'm our "travel agent"...and I know Ashley ALWAYS answers her emails quickly, and addresses any concerns immediately...also...they're just all around cool people. (Also...just not so impressed with places that aren't managed by the owners...with awesome local help, of course, like Stacy is for Paraiso!) The kitchen is equipped with anything you might need, and the bathroom has a blow dryer...yay, Ashley!...(although...some of us are getting older...a magnified light up mirror in the bathroom would be bueno!) But...as my husband tells me..it's Mexico...make up and bras should be banned anyway. All in all...if your on Isla...life is Sweet...if your at Casa Paraiso you're luckier than most!!! (Reserve early...up to a year...no joke...the good ones DO go that quickly!!!)

Beautiful island great house awesome acation

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable at Casa Pariaso! Located close to everything we could walk to breakfast at Mango Cafe (delicious) dinner at Rincon Cubano (yum!) dinner and dessert at Rosa Sirena (the coconut cheesecake is to die for). Casa Pariaso makes it easy to take your golf cart and go explore. We did not have any issues while at the house. Stacy did a great job when we arrived showing us everything we would need to know! We spent alot of time relaxing and enjoying the amazing views from Casa Pariaso!

Perfectly located casa on Isla Mujeres

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three and regulars to Isla Mujeres. We have stayed on San Bajo, Playa Norte, the cliffs as well as on Calle Hidalgo. We chose Casa Paraiso because of the location, the Caribe side. We were very pleased with our choice.

Location: Casa Paraiso is perfectly located with only a five minute golf cart ride into town and the North Beach. There are plenty local hidden great restaurants close by, as well as a grocery store. The house is right off the road which gives it a central feeling, but your view of the water and watching the waves puts you in that instant vacation trance. There is also a constant breeze which is nice. The master bedroom has a perfect view of the sunrise. and you can watch the sun set from the roof. What a bonus.

Interior of Home: The interior is of the classic hacienda Mexican flare. The main floor living room and kitchen is very comfortable. There is a large smart TV so our son was occupied. All kitchen appliances work perfectly. We cooked breakfast in the morning. The bedrooms, bathrooms were clean and comfortable, The beds and pillows were comfortable too. The AC's worked fine.

Communication and Client Service. The owner of Casa Paraiso is very responsive. She answered all my questions. Upon arriving at the home, the house manager greeted us and when the butane needed to be replaced it was done within 15 minutes. There is no housekeeping service with your stay, but you can pay to have someone come and clean for you. We were perfectly capable to wash the beach towels and our towels while there.

Overall: We were very pleased with our stay. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived. I would stay at Casa Paraiso again. Unless finally my husband buys me my own Casa. :) Enjoy your stay!

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Casa Paraiso. The house is located in a perfect spot on the island. Close enough to Centro for shopping and restaurants and close to Punta Sur, my favorite place to be. I have to say the bed was extremely comfortable and had a perfect view of the sunrise. Thank you Ashley for having us and for being so accommodating. Looking forward to our next visit. Rena & Paul

We did not want to leave!!! Paraiso is a cozy romantic home with the most exquisite views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous experience of waking every morning, overlooking the ocean on the front porch or rooftop, drinking coffee. Paraiso has everything you’ll ever need... all the comforts of home in this island getaway!

The island is safe and beautiful with numerous restaurants and activities tucked away in the most unexpected places. This has become our favorite island getaway, and this beautiful home made our stay very special!
