Why Nelinda Vanzella-Gustafson chose Isla Mujeres
Well, this house was made with love, sweat and tears at times! We have built this home ourselves with the help of an amazing crew of workers. It’s taken two years but we have finally finished and excited to invite guests to enjoy this house as much as we do. We bought this land in the mid-1990s and hoped to the always build a house that was big enough for the family to come and stay all together as well as rent it while we aren’t here so that others can have a chance to enjoy it as much as we do. We started coming to this island as a family and fell in love with it right away. The ferry ride over with the warm breeze and the light splashes gives us that warm and cozy feeling as if we are arriving at our second home. The island was appealing to us not only for its beauty but the fact that it is safe and we could just let the kids play and enjoy our holiday without a worry. Everyone here is friendly and welcoming and it’s easy to just settle in once you arrive and start enjoying your holiday right away. The other reason we love this island is the food! There are all different types of cuisine here and so many amazing restaurants to choose from.
What makes this Condo unique
As we often say, “this view never gets old”. Whether you sit on the patio to watch the sun rise, enjoy it in the afternoon when you might see a pod of dolphins swim by or in the evening when the sun is setting, you will never be disappointed. This is why we decided when planning the design of this house, that there MUST BE a rooftop patio and pool area for all the guests to enjoy. On the days you don’t feel like making your own coffee and breakfast there is a very popular place just a block away, The Mango Café. We have a large grocery store that is walking distance from our house which will have everything you need including a liquor section, bakery, deli, beach accessories and lots of import food for the days that you are craving something from home. A quick cab ride from the famous Playa Norte. Featured in numerous reviews as being one of the top 10 beaches in the world!

Sweet spot away from crowd
We truly loved our short stay at Casa Perla. We really loved the roof deck and spent our mornings out there watching the sun rise with coffee and breakfast. fun to walk around the neighborhood and explore the non-touristy side of the island. Only 4 stars and not 5 since the bed was way to soft for me and I didn't sleep well.
Very nice and clean room in a good location.
Nice to be near good restaurants and away from the hubbub of Playa Norte, but it was minutes away when I wanted it.
Amazing spot on isla mujeres
We had a great time here everything you need is all at this condo. The location was perfect the view was unforgettable. We could not say enough good things about this place. We however will not be returning only becouse the house across the street has 8 dogs who bark all night long and peed on our cart every night. The condo was amazing otherwise thank you for a beautiful vacation.
Oh no, I am sorry to hear that the neighbour's dogs bothered you. He is a dog lover, very friendly dogs that he usually keeps in his yard and takes them in the house at night. Thank you for letting us know, we will definitely speak to him about this.
Such a clean, beautiful place. Amazing rooftop. Monica, the house manager, was very helpful and took great care of us. Highly recommend renting a golf cart. Also small restaurant around the corner has the best fish tacos on the island! Will recommend to all!
Very nice property in a neighborhood but close to restaurants and grocery store.
Outdoor areas are spectacular but this rental is very small and the bed is a full not a queen as described. We also were never able to get wifi our whole trip. This was frustrating but several restaurants had it so we made due.
We're sorry to hear that the wifi wasn't working. We will have our manager look at it, however, we have had guests stay since your check out and they haven't had a problem.
The bed is, in fact, a queen size bed. It is a Sealy posturepedic mattress that we bought at Costco. We buy and take our sheets from Canada so we are sure it is queen size.
We are sorry you found the suite small, it is a studio so they are smaller than our two bedrooms but we didn't use a wide angle lens so we feel our pictures show an accurate layout.
Very accomadating and beautiful view of the Carribean.
Casa Perla was very beautiful and accommodating. A beautiful view of the Carribean. The bed was soft which was a plus. We were able to walk everywhere we went. The maid was wonderful and did a great job. The kitchen was very handy as we like to take advantage of the fresh fruits, vegetables, and seafood. The Catholic Church was right down the block. Restaurants in area with great food. And the island people are the best.
Casa Perla is located on a dead-end street off of the busy main road. We are walking distance from a large grocery store, pharmacy, great restaurants and a quick ride to the famous Playa Norte.
