We (the owners) are from Colorado, U.S.A., and we rent our island home 'Casa Lirio' when we are not on the island.

We have done our best to make sure our home is as inviting and comfortable as possible, as we want all of our guests to have a wonderful, relaxed time during their stay. There is colorful artwork and handmade furniture throughout this home, many touches you will not find staying in a hotel or other rental property! We are located on the south end of the island on a semi private road in a quiet, safe neighborhood, with views of the ocean on the Caribbean side and views of Cancun on the bay side from the roof-top terrace. There are only 5 other row houses on our little dead end road, and since the south end of the island is very narrow, although not beachfront, you are close to the water on both sides!!! Our home is 10 years old, and newly remodeled and decorated in August 2018. It is a 2 br 2 ba home, sleeps 6 (2 queen beds and 1 regular twin and 1 loft twin), with a full kitchen, fenced back yard with mature banana trees and native flowers, living room with flat screen tv, local cable, DVD/Blue Ray, and reliable wireless internet. From the Caribbean side bedroom or the roof-top terrace at night, you can enjoy the relaxing sounds of the ocean waves breaking on the cliffs, instead of the sounds of golf carts/mopeds/loud music that you will find renting a property in one of the colonias or downtown area... There is a horse coral with horses a one minute walk out the front door. There are a couple of restaurants/bars, a secluded, little cove/beach (for those afternoon dips in the cool ocean waters) and a walking path along the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean within 5 minutes walking from the property.. You will also find a Mayan Ruin, Garrafon Parque (snorkeling), gift shops, and ice cream shop and a coffee shop, as well as the island's new water park and slides (Parque De Los Suenos) within an easy 10 minute (or less) walk from our home. If you purchase food or drinks at Casa De Los Suenos, you can use their pools and slide, or use their kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel equipment for FREE! Downtown and North Beach are a short 15 minute taxi ride (at the cost of approximately $6usd one way), and there are many local restaurants within a 5 minute taxi ride or less. We can give you our local taxi driver (Thomas') number and he will pick you up at the front door and return you home at a time good for you. There are several grocery stores and markets on the island, but the largest one (Chedraui) is only a 5 minute taxi ride from our home (smaller local markets even closer). If you are coming here to snorkel, scuba, swim with the whale sharks or are interested in fishing... we can refer you to the best business as well.** If you are coming to swim with the whale sharks or are interested in viewing the sea turtles nest on the beaches... you need to come to the island during the months of June, July and/or August. But fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving is great year-round. There are no car rentals on the island (you need to do that in Cancun if you want to have a car during your trip), or you can easily rent golf carts, mopeds, four wheelers or bicycles here on the island. If you decide you do not want to rent any transportation of your own, calling or waving down a taxi is easy and inexpensive anywhere on the island (and SAFE). ** If your family or group is looking for a place that sleeps more than we can accommodate, our friends own the 2 bedroom home right next to us which is also available for short-term and long-term rentals... so if interested, you may be able to rent both! **PLEASE keep in mind that this home is located in a nice, quiet family neighborhood... so if you are looking for a place to get your party on... it is not going to be here - sorry. BUT, if you are looking for that nice, safe, tucked-away caribbean getaway in a private home to call your own, come stay at Casa Lirio! RE PETS: Not all private properties on the island allow pets... but we do! To bring your pet, you must have prior written approval from us, and pay a $100usd non-refundable extra pet cleaning fee in advance, and you must pick up after your pet and keep them off our livingroom furniture PLEASE!! If you plan to stay awhile, there are several laundry facilities within a 5 minute drive from our home, and they are all reliable and inexpensive. Drop your clothes off in the morning and they will be ready for pick-up the next day. Want housekeeping during your stay? We can arrange that for you for an additional fee. Well, that is about it! Thank you for considering Casa Lirio... 'Donde nuestra casa es su casa!' !Buen Dia! Barbara, Rebecca & Lili More

About the neighbourhood
Our home is tucked back in the jungle on the south end of the island, on a middle sand road (Calle Lirio) between the Cancun and Caribbean Perimeter roads. It is just past the famous shell house, and up behind Casa Colibri and Casa De La Musica. On the Cancun side, it is just before the horse stables and Garafon Parque. Calle Lirio is a semi private road, with very little traffic and only 5 other townhouses/row houses. It is very safe, quite and peaceful... and you can even hear the waves breaking at night from the back side bedroom. There are beautiful views of the Caribbean from the roof - top terrace, where you can enjoy relaxing and entertaining. There is also a view of the Cancun skyline from the roof on the bay side. There is also a small cove and semi private little beach (off t...
Getting around
The island is only a little over 4 miles long, so it makes getting just about anywhere a breeze! Golf carts are a popular way to get about, as are mopeds bicycles and taxi's. If you rent a golf cart we suggest you try renting from Coco's or Pepe's first. And remember you get a better deal if you pay in USD, and you get a better deal if you rent it for several days or a week at a time. Golf cart rentals (depending upon the time of year) run between $30usd and $80-usd per day. You can also rent a car at the Cancun airport, and bring it over on the car ferry. Believe it or not, it is fairly easy driving in Mexico, and it it very easy to get to Punta Sam where the car ferry is from the airport.
