Property Details

Escape to paradise on your next vacation and stay at El Gran Escape (The Grand Escape)! This stunning, well decorated and spacious home is accommodating with everything that you will need to make your stay extra special.

This luxurious 4-bedroom house, located in the desirable south end of Isla Mujeres, comes with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, complete with wonderful early morning sunrises to be enjoyed from the comfort of your outdoor terrace.

Your Caribbean island escape is hidden away, set back from the main road at the end of a long driveway. Escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Isla Mujeres at this peaceful and private get away, ideal for families or large groups. Enter the house through the large wooden doors into your spacious, air conditioned, elegantly designed living area.

Enjoy lazy days looking out towards the Caribbean Sea, across your large infinity pool with a built swim up bar. Relax on a lounge chair as the sounds of the waves lull you into a slumber. Rest in the shade with one of the books available or play a board game with family. Spend you evening cooking at the outdoor kitchen and dine under the stars of the Mexican night sky.

The indoor kitchen with its long granite worktops has everything that you will need to make something delicious, including a large refrigerator, oven and stove, microwave, dish washer, toaster, blender and coffee maker as well as dishes and utensils. Dine at the grand breakfast bar that can seat 6 people. Or dine under the villa style brick, dome roof, with its beautiful chandelier, at the striking marble dining table that can seat 8. The waterfall wall in the living area is a magnificent added touch.

After a day in the Mexican sun relax and cool off on one of the two great sofas in front of your large Smart TV, complete with a DVD player and DVDs. From here look out to the Caribbean through the large glass doors.

Wake up in one of the 4-bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom with walk in stone showers. Each also complete with a spacious closet, with a safe for your valuables, AC and ceiling fans as well as a TV. The upstairs master bedroom, with a king bed, has access to a wonderful private patio. Access the pool through your own private patio door in the downstairs master bedroom, with a king bed. There are 2 second bedrooms, 1 with a queen bed, the other with 2 double beds.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Gran Escape. We have been to the island many times but this was our first time renting a house. We loved it and will do it again. We loved the pool area and the amenities at the property. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and loved to hear the waves crashing. The home had all the kitchen items we needed to cook and feel at home.

The view was unbelievable. It was the perfect fit for our family. The property was clean and spacious. The concierge was so helpful. We loved the area.

El Gran Escape is everything we could have imagined and more. The house was beautiful with a breathtaking view and amazing rooms and bathrooms to accommodate all 6 of us. The pool and outside area with a grill overlooking the blue water was something you need to experience for yourself. I would love to come back to El Gran Escape next time I'm on the island!

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, we hope to host you again in the future.

El Gran Escape exceeded our expectations! The house, pool and the view were absolutely amazing. We needed help with a couple of things while we were on the island and the team quickly helped us. It was nice to be able to have someone to ask that was familiar with the island.

We were shocked at some of the amenities that came with the house! The house was clean and they even had a copy of surprises for us when we checked in.

We rented a golf cart through their concierge service and it was so nice to have it delivered and picked up at the property. We were very pleased with the service we received from the golf cart company and the quality of the golf cart (if you've been to the island before you know this can be an issue).

I would recommend the property to anyone!

Fantastic place truly. Great views. Wonderful beds and gorgeous location. Very clean !

by Review from Airbnb Guest #243388


We enjoyed our stay. It was a clean house with a great view. We were able to take a walk by the ocean and also take bus/taxi that pass by the house. I felt safe considering that I am very alert of my surroundings. We had the maintenance people come in a few times to fix the jacuzzi and a safe. When there was any questions or observations I needed to share, they were available to respond.

not the one to leave negative review , but stay was not as expected .
Advertised as beachfront or beach access this is not true no beach access within walking distance.
House is not private there is a road in front before ocean that taxis go by and constant foot traffic as well as pack of stray dogs came to visit us multiple times while we swimming kids ran inside .

the propane oven does not light itself instead of fixing hosts gives you a lighter that dosent work and very unsafe as its a fire hazard if propane left on while your trying to light as it does not light easy.
definitly leak from propane as when you use oven there is propane smell in the whole house we had to stay outside whenever using the oven.
Exhaust on oven is broken

sofas arent sofas they are cement base with a cushion for the bottom and only pillows for the back kids heads got smashed, using it.
pillows are terrible and blankets are almost non existent and no good shades , did not get good sleep

This was a great place to stay, we went with a large group and rented 2 other houses and a condo along that strip. I liked our place best for the value the only complaint was the dryer only worked twice the whole time we were there and we packed light since we knew there was a washer/dryer but not a big deal overall. We had a great trip and will be back for sure.

Julia Martin was our concierge and she was fantastic, she made arrangements start to finish she must work 24/7 since no matter what time I texted her she responded very quickly. I get a little nervous when I am not 100% in control of my travel but I didn’t need to worry about anything with Julia everything went exactly like she had planned.

Julia was very responsive and helpful! We had an unusual request to obtain a walker for my grandmother and Julia helped us find one and anything we needed. Julia also assisted with getting a private chef, Brando who was exceptional! The food was delicious and he was very fun to be around! Your company and those we worked with on the island made our trip very memorable. Thank you Julia for all your efforts!!!

Overwhelmingly amazing place!! The home, the pool, the ocean, the walking path along the ocean right by the house! There’s a bathroom in every bedroom!! Beds were comfortable! High end linens! Our family of 12 had an absolutely wonderful stay because of this beautiful home!! Every need was attended to immediately!! I can’t say enough about this 1st rate property! This is where you want to stay!!

Everything Isla was such a blessing to have for our 8 day stay! They handle everything we needed for the entirety of our trip and even delivered groceries to the house for us! Can’t wait to book our next trip to the island with Everything Isla!!

Incredible home and was perfect for our group of 5. We celebrated 3 birthdays. Property managers were very helpful and accommodating with our requests. Would highly recommend this property. It is an absolute gem!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #230321


BEAUTIFUL home to stay at. Highly recommend. 6 of us stayed there comfortably and had a great time. Just know, you will have to drive to some swimmable beaches, but everything on Isla is 15-30 min away. It’s not a big island. We drove back and forth across the island every day, going to restaurants and beaches and it was easy. Your stay will be much easier if you have cell reception while on the island. I did and it made communication with Everything Isla much easier and I was able to call them to get into the house. Used the whats. App. a lot to communicate with them as well. The wifi is spotty at the house, didn’t always work- but the team was quick to respond about it and I think they’re working on getting it fixed. It didn’t impact our stay. Highly recommend! The views are STUNNING!

Our stay was perfect from the moment we drove down the driveway! There were seven of us ladies and all of us were extremely comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for making and serving drinks, cooking meals, and there were even some seasonings in one cabinet that came in VERY handy! The property management company popped in one day and delivered more water and TP without us even asking and we were so thankful for that little surprise! We had a lot of issues with the wi-fi connection, but other than that I would recommend this place to everyone and would stay there again.

This has been our favorite villa so far! The house, grounds, location, and communication with everyone exceeded our expectations. We loved the golf cart and scooters Julia arranged for us ~ Best golf cart we've ever had! Gabriel from the scooter rental was always available to answer questions and was very accommodating when we needed to exchange one due to a flat tire. Luis, the property manager, was also available to answer questions and took good care of anything we needed. We are hoping that this property will still be available for our next trip to Isla, we don't want to stay anywhere else!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #198299


The photos did not do it justice, this place was beautiful and spacious for a large group! The host helped organize golf cart rentals and had it delivered upon our arrival. The host also sent help to the house when our group had a hard time getting the grill working. They were at the house within minutes and helped us! The location is great and very peaceful. Stunning!

Absolutely loved staying 4 nights in April for a bachelorette. The house was clean and had a well stocked kitchen for cooking. The pool and water view was simply WOW. Contrary to other reviews, the pool water was clean for our stay. Would definitely stay here again.

The house was great! love the Island.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #183199


I would recommend this place to anyone! Incredible place and location. The only negative I can think of was there were some ants in the kitchen. I messaged the host and they had someone there in a half hour to take care of the issue. After that didn't need to contact them until checkout. Beautiful place!

Prefect, safe, clean and very relaxing

by Review from Airbnb Guest #164771


El gran escape is a great stay in isla mujeres. It’s located south of the island. The house was comfortable and clean for my family of 8. Only small problem was the pool, It was a bit dirty and stopped working for a day.
Other than that I highly recommend this place!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #158218


This was exactly what we were looking for on our trip. A quiet retreat, awesome views, and large enough for us to spread out. Everything, we needed was in the home. From coffee maker to gas grill this home has it all. Truly, if you want to get away from downtown Isla and have a quiet pace this is for you. Taxis are readily available if you do want to head into town. It’s just a short walk to many places as well. The house is beautiful and set up terrific. Pictures are true and accurate… actually it’s better in person!!

Loved the pool and the morning views are beautiful. Had a comfortable time staying at the house and an amazing time in isla mujeres.

Great place to stay. The view and grounds were amazing. Management company was great to work with and readily available. The outdoor space felt private and was very relaxing.

El Gran Escape is an absolutely beautiful home. It was perfect for our group and so relaxing. Julia with Everything Isla was absolutely incredible. She helped organize everything from start to finish. We will be back!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #127621


Absolutely loved our experience on Isla Mujeres at El Gran Escape. 

1 | You can't beat the view of the infinity pool looking over the ocean. We ended up spending two whole days just staying at the property because it was too beautiful to leave.

2 | Everything Isla (the concierge service) and Capi's (the property manager) were both incredibly responsive and helpful. Julia at Everything Isla helped get us set up with door-to-door transportation when we arrived in Cancun, a golf cart to get around the island, groceries stocked in the property when we arrived, and recommendations for food and taxis. She was easy to work with and always available to answer questions. Capi's also responded quickly when we had wifi and plumbing issues. It was great to have that easy, quick support throughout the week.

3 | The house itself is spacious, comfortable, charming and has all the necessary amenities. 

4 | Location is quiet, safe, and secluded, and you can easily reach the downtown area/beaches/restaurants via golf cart in 15-20 min. Also, everyone on the island recognizes it, so it was easy to just say "El Gran Escape" rather than an address.

Beautiful house, the pool is perfect, and it’s in a quiet location. Perfect for a little R&R!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #111471


Our experience at El Gran Escape was just the Escape we needed. Three friends and coworkers enjoyed this 4 BR / 4 and 2 half Bath house for three incredible days. It was incredibly clean when we arrived (cleaners still finishing up as we were early to check in). They were very careful to follow all appropriate precautionary Covid measures by sanitizing the entire place. We worked with Island Concierge, Julia, to secure a pink golf cart (more fun than most), groceries, wine, beer and margarita mix and find a private chef to cook dinner for us the 1st night. Chef Brando brought delicious Chile Rellenos which we enjoyed at the outside dining table.

This house isn't on the beach but it does come with incredible water views which we enjoyed from the house and the pool, enjoying the daily spectacle of turtles frolicking in the water.

As destinations go, Isla Mujeres was great. We enjoyed a few local restaurants and rented a catamaran one night for a sunset cruise paired with sushi and ceviche. We also snorkeled and ziplined at Garrafon Park. All easy to get to from our house.

As houses go, this one exceeded our expectations. The space, the cleanliness, the amenities were all excellent quality and value. This was just the break we were looking for.

from $505 / night
