15 gorgeous VRBO vacation rentals and Airbnb in Isla Mujeres Mexico

In this post, I share the most stunning Isla Mujeres Airbnb and other vacation rentals that I have selected based on the most stylish decor, the number of bedrooms, price, and location.


If you are planning an escape to Isla Mujeres, the best way to enjoy the authentic island vibes is to have a cozy space for yourself, even better if it’s overlooking the ocean and be surrounded by silence and tranquility.

There are so many things to do in Isla Mujeres that you will need a few days to explore it all but also enjoy the peace and quiet of the island and its beaches. But first of all, you need to get to the island. In this post on how to get to Isla Mujeres from Cancun, I explain all the options you have.

So without further ado, let’s bring them on!


My pick of the best Airbnb in Isla Mujeres


Isla Mujeres Airbnb Luxe for family or friends retreats

Zyanya: intoxicating Ocean Views!! 4-6 bedrooms

📍 Isla Mujeres –  · 6-8 bedrooms · 4 baths ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⭐ – 💲💲💲💲💲

Zyanya is a unique property situated on Punta Sur right on the ocean.

Perfect for a family or friends retreat. The home contains four large master bedrooms each with its own private master baths all with views of the ocean.

The downstairs bedroom which is also wheelchair accessible is both facing the ocean and open to poolside for easy access.

A huge double living room and kitchen with spectacular ocean views as well and a large oceanside infinity pool and deck equipped with lounge beds, dining area, and chairs are perfect for entertaining.

There is a Chef’s kitchen and an extra-large laundry area.

The House is also finely decorated with world-class hand-made furniture and vast art collection making it one of the most beautiful and stylish property of the island.

What the previous guests say:

“Zyanya is idyllic in its location allowing our party to enjoy relaxing massages by the pool, with singular scenic views, as well as the convenience of a ten-minute drive in our golf cart to Playa Norte where we enjoyed the night life. The house is stunning in its design, accommodating our party of ten comfortably with each room possessing a heavenly bed and ample space. From arranging our smooth arrival to greeting us (even though we were early) with mimosas and appetizers, Luis and his staff went above and beyond during our stay. Every morning we were greeted with a delicious spread of fruit, fresh made papaya smoothies, and authentic Mexican breakfast, and then welcomed, after a day of sightseeing, to a surprising entree with delectable desserts such as creme brulee. Luis’ attention to detail is unmatched as a chef and host–recalling one of our party’s special diet requests after just one meal and cooking the fresh-caught lobster we purchased during our yachting adventure! We are counting the days until our return to Zyanya.”

What the previous guests say:

The house was great, amazing views. We really enjoyed the private beach. Almost every morning the beach was raked and cleared. Dave is very kind, he recommended a couple of restaurants that ended up being our favorites. I can’t wait to go back.

Nice private small beach area. The owner arranged golf cart rental for us, making it easy for us to explore the island. Loved it!

This was our first time to stay on the Island. Let me say, “it won’t be our last”. The property was exactly like it was shown in the pictures and descriptions. Katy was very thorough with directions and the Check-in process. Once we were there Dave met us and showed us around and got us in touch with a golf cart company that brought the cart to the house for us. We enjoyed the pool and the bayside of the island for snorkeling and swimming. We also used the kayaks for a nice paddle out to the turquoise waters. There was so much to do or so little to do. Whatever you were in the mood for. Fantastic property I highly recommended. We will definitely be back

What the previous guests say:

The view of the gulf and the rooftop. The rooftop pool and warm ocean breeze. Bathrooms also available on the rooftop, never have to leave all day. Enclosed parking was helpful.

We had plenty of space, everything was comfortable, the balconies all face the ocean, and the rooftop deck was lovely!

The condo was comfortable, quiet, and had a spectacular view. We rented a golf cart for our stay and Deep Blue provides a secure basement parking spot to keep it. The AC works great although we kept the double sliding doors open most of the time. Gorgeous weather in mid-January. We highly recommend Deep Blue Condos to anyone tired of the all-inclusive bustle.

What the previous guests say:

Everything was beautiful! The outdoor living was incredible. They supplied everything you might need, did not expect that. Sofia was so kind and helpful! My Husband thought they might need the police to get me out!

I adore this Bungalow-The pictures absolutely do not do it justice. Sofia was wonderful as always with arranging the Transfers to the Ferry, Home and Golf carts as well as the Doctor’s in-home visits for the Covid Tests now required for the return home. My only thought (and only a thought)* A 2nd sofa instead of chairs in the Living room would be perfect for those days when the weather is not so good and you just want to relax/chill. This was our 2nd stay and just rebooked for the summer -It’s just that perfect”

We were OBSESSED with this house!!! We did partial trip in playa Norte and part down in punta sur and it was perfect. We loved the pool and hanging in the palapa reading. House comes with Sonos. Sofia was incredible and her service was A++. We were sad to leave. Only complaint was WiFi was spotty and hot water in the shower didn’t last long.

What the previous guests say:

We were quite comfortable here. The furniture consists of 4 barstools for the kitchen counter, one patio chair and a two-seat, wood slat, futon in the living room and a very comfortable queen-size bed in the bedroom. The futon would be acceptable for a young child to sleep on. Kitchen has very basic dishes & utensils, but has a toaster, coffee pot, microwave and 2 burner stove top. However, there is no hot water in the kitchen. The apt. Is centrally located and quiet and within walking distance to the grocery store. There is no on-site staff, but the owner replies quickly to email. Staff that do work there speak Spanish only. We enjoyed our stay there and hope to be able to return.

This is an amazing property in Isla Mujeres. Well worth the money. Suite Lorens is a new property, well maintained and beautiful. Perfectly located mid-island so no matter what your plans are getting there is easy. There is a fantastic housekeeper and manager who makes your stay enjoyable. If you are going to Isla Mujeres this is the place to stay. If available ask for unit 8., you will have a beautiful view of the lake. We sat and watched wildlife for hours!!

What previous guests say

Great stay, great location just outside of downtown but not too far, we walked. Great view and would stay here again.

This rental is in a great location right on the Malecon and within walking distance to Playa Norte and Hidalgo. The oversized balcony off the room overlooking the ocean was the best feature. We were welcomed with a golf cart ride from the ferry to the unit which was a nice touch. There was daily maid service to switch out the bedding. The property manager was easy to get ahold of. Overall great unit for the price. The only negative thing I would say is that the door to the unit is paper thin so you can hear everyone/everything in the halls. Would recommend if you want to save a few $$.

My husband and I celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary here and had a wonderful time. Clara was very helpful and picked us up from the ferry terminal and took us to pick up the golf cart we rented from Everything Isla! Beautiful simple room and great views from the balcony! This was close to the action and didn’t need to travel far to get to anything. Highly recommend!
