The world famous Seashell house is a gated property .... owners/architects live next door. You will have a private pool, two king beds , kitchenette and BBQ and entire property, both shells . In shell wifi, air conditioning.
I am proud to enable your stay . Enjoy a day or more feeling like a celebrity as passers by will seek to look in with intrigued expressions.


My dear friends Raquel and Eduardo Ocampo designed and built the Seashell House and for many years no one knew that it was possible to stay here and fewer knew how to arrange a stay.
I decided it was too special to keep to myself and I invited the world via AIRBNB !!!
Raquel and daughter Vane are your hosts at this unique island paradise .

If crowded pools, lobby's and the "tourist bubble" are not your idea of an escape then the SEASHELL HOUSE may be the perfect place for your stay in ISLA MUJERES.

Nearest airport : Cancun International

Nearest port :. Puerto Juarez (downtown Cancun adjacent) or Playa Tortugas (Cancun hotel zone)

Nearest beach : we face the rocky north side of the island and the best beach is north beach which is 15 minutes away by golf cart. El Garrafon snorkel park is a short distance in the opposite direction.

Maximum guests is exactly as specified ...there is space for four .

Isla Mujeres is 7 km long and 650 meters wide.

Arrive by convenient taxi (6USD)or by golf cart(35 USD PER DAY) to THE SEASHELL HOUSE(S)


The residential area is on a cliff side of the tiny island to allow privacy. You are not right in the middle of all the tourists but getting to the most beautiful beaches is easy with a golf cart or taxi.
Of course, privacy is sometimes lost as tourists on golf carts notice the spectacular architecture and stop to gawk over the fence making you suddenly understand how celebrities feel.

The smaller rounder shell has an immaculate KING BED and private bath with shower and a tv with a wide array of channels in English and in Spanish. The private bath with shower is made of tile and shells .

The taller shell has a sitting area downstairs and KITCHENETTE with a large fridge, microwave, gas stovetop and sink with all the tools you need to enjoy meals . The round sitting area also has a tv with satellite channels.
There is also a half bath off the sitting area.
Up a rounded staircase is the master bedroom with a KING BED and private bath with shower. There is a balcony over looking the pool and across the street , the Caribbean Sea.

Wifi is provided for free in the QUEEN CONCH
Every room in the house has a remote controlled air conditioner.

Towels - linens and soap are provided of course :)

Ample parking for your golf cart or scooter.

Tiny geckos make there home in and around the property, and all over Mexico, so if cute little geckos freak you out and will disturb your stay then do not come to the Seashell house.

Come to Isla Mujeres for a vacation that you will never forget, one that you will have fond memories of all year long...until you come .

The houses sleep FOUR PEOPLE TOTAL.
There is one king bed in each house.



In 1994 architect Eduardo Ocampo arrived in Isla Mujeres and built a house for himself (and later met his wife Maria Raquel) His brother Octavio Ocampo visited frequently, Eduardo had two pieces of land in a quaint residential area with caribbean sea views....and wished to build on his lot for his brother.

Of course, this could not be any house. Octavio, a famous painter and needed something unique. Eduardo at first wanted a palala...but this was not allowed...having been very influenced by the "mountains" of seashells all around, he was inspired to actually construct a seashell. This would be the vacation home of his brother (in Cuernavaca) , it would be rounded on the inside, the spiral staircase... just inside the shell, a door where there was the mouth of the shell and windows with the form of shells


Years later Eduardo would be tickled to learn that the islanders had created a sort of legend which goes like this ...
The fisherman of Isla Holbox met with the fisherman of Isla Mujeres to boast of their individual islands...Isla Holbox sounded "Our island is where you find the biggest fish in the world !"
The fisherman of Isla Mujeres responded "We are proud to have the biggest shell in the world !"
The biggest shell ?
Yes the biggest shell !!!
When we found it we made ceviche for all of the islanders...and then we sold it to a gringo that lives in it now !"

Though the owners are not gringos...they still laugh when they hear the legend.

Guests can use the BBQ and parking lot .

Raquel and her daughter Vanessa are at the adjacent property . If you cannot find her for your needs you may interact with cleaning or pool staff or leave a message .

The neighborhood is beautifully peaceful and quiet . At night it is very dark and very serene .

A golf cart is necessary as the Seashell House is located in a residential area.

I serve to make your stay possible as I wanted to share it with the world but Raquel is the owner ... Please treat the homes with respect so that she continues to enjoy renting

Staying at this place was a dream come true. Such a cool experience in one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Highly recommend staying here and renting a golf cart to explore the rest of the beautiful island! Vanessa was kind and helpful and even though we had some issues with the bathroom working they took care of it! We are definitely planning on coming back!!

The place is straight out of a Dr. Suess book! Imaginative and special and so incredibly cool! Beautiful views of the ocean. Michelle and Vanessa were excellent hosts and communicated in a timely manner and made check in/out easy. Perfect home and locale for a couples/friends trip, lots of fun bars and restaurants just a short golf cart ride away.

This was an amazing stay for us. The house is as beautiful as the pictures and more. Vanessa was very attentive to anything we needed. Golf cart, places that delivered food during the storm etc. Cant wait to come back next year

It's like a work of art come to life! At our recent stay at the shell house the owners (who conveniently lived next door) went above and beyond to accommodate us. They picked us up at the ferry, rented the golf we needed to get around the island and escorted us to the house with drinks in the fridge. Highly recommend staying here on the beautiful Isla Mujeres.

I love what I do here in Cancun and I have won 5 years of awards for excellence on Tripadvisor for the quality of my rooms and attention to my guests.

I traded Canada for Cancun when I was 25 because I had a desire to never have to return to " reality" after vacationing again. Mexico proved to be a wonderful place to live.

For 15 years I worked in all the top luxury hotels as concierge / guest services and I learned many things that can help you have a fabulous experience. I'm here full time, not an absentee owner.

The desire to vacation never went away and I enjoy it more than ever and I frequently travel overseas to major world cities (opposite of here!) to open my mind and have new experiences .... always looking for ways to serve you better ~ I love what we do .

Sincerely , Michelle
