About Katy Hochmayr
Isla Retreats is owned and operated by father and daughter team, Dave and Katy Hochmayr. We bought the property in 2006, but did not begin construction until February of 2016. We began coming to Isla Mujeres in 1989 and it soon became our second home. We love the unique family and cultural ambiance on the island that creates a very comfortable and relaxing place to live and vacation. We purchased the property where Isla Retreats is located as an empty lot in 2006 and began building in February of 2016. We are very excited to have finally finished the project in May of 2017. The design and vision of Isla Retreats came from Dave - he creatively thought of the most unique details that make this property so exceptional.
Katy Hochmayr purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Katy Hochmayr chose Salinas
Our main goal for Isla Retreats is to provide an adults only, tranquil and unique Caribbean-Mexican experience. Guests can get away from the hustle-bustle of downtown and everyday life to relax and savor the lovely island. We designed the common area to create a peaceful ambience featuring a salt-water pool with waterfalls, beach chairs and umbrellas, tropical gardens and an exquisite palapa. We wanted to keep as much green-space as possible, so we designed the property with many tropical plants and coconut trees. There are many extraordinary hand-carved marble and onyx sculptures throughout the property as well.
What makes this Villa unique
We enjoy working with our guests directly so that they can have the best vacation possible, as we know how special and memorable vacations are. We look forward to sharing Isla Retreats with many guests in the years to come. With over 15 years experience of living and working on the island, and being fluent in both Spanish and English, Katy will be able to answer all of your questions relating to your vacation at Isla Retreats throughout the reservation process.

Very clean and private. Beautiful property!
Beautiful property and villas. Perfect for individuals or groups. We were part of a group of 10. We stayed in #5. Maids were impeccable. Restaurants are within walking distance or take a cheap taxi ride downtown to other wonderful restaurants. Katy is a wealth of knowledge on the island. We rented a golf cart for 2 days to explore the island, which Katy lined up for us as well. We can't wait to go back!
Beautiful, peaceful and perfectly situated
This was the second time we stayed here- in the exact same villa. The villa itself is well-appointed and has a beautiful view of the lagoon on the patio. Nature is abundant and we enjoyed taking in the sunsets from our room. Overall, the setting is a peaceful and perfectly maintained retreat. The host (Katy)is amazing and very attentive to everything. This year, avoiding the crowds downtown during the holiday season, we spent many warm days relaxing by the pool reading and talking with the other guests. Our family joined us this year and spent a relaxing time in two other adjoining villas on the property. It was a perfect family vacation.Note that the retreat is located in a quiet part of the island. In the mornings we would buy fresh tacos, eggs and fresh squeezed juice down the street and cook our own breakfasts. The villa is a short walk to excellent neighborhood restaurants. Its close enough to walk to down town - but its a short golf cart ride as well. This year, Katy arranged our cart ahead of time for us! In summary: Absolutely perfect for a long and relaxing getaway! We hope to return to the exact same villa next year!
Lovely, quiet and perfectly located.
Isla Retreats is exactly as advertised - quiet, modern, and very comfortable. It was nice to be away from the bustle of downtown while still only a 50 peso taxi ride away. This is a great location from which to enjoy all that the island has to offer. There are restaurants, grocery stores and bars within walking distance but the secure premises of Isla Retreats offers serenity. The lovely pool was great to come back to after a day touring the island or at the beach. We stayed in Villa 5 and it was perfect for a couple - the bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was fully outfitted and the rooftop patio was a wonderful place to watch the sun set. Katy was very accommodating and the staff were lovely. Highly recommend!
Gorgeous! Great attention to detail!
Absolutely loved this place! Great, new place. Clean, great attention to detail with the landscaping. The room was super clean. The bed was very comfy. The staff were welcoming. We will definitely be recommending this place to others (and hopefully will be back ourselves).
Isla Retreats was amazing! Super relaxing, clean, quiet, nice pool....
We have stayed on the island many times and really enjoyed staying here! Would definitely stay again! Thank you Katy & Dave.
They were very helpful and responsive to all of our needs.
Beautiful, peaceful, safe, home away from home!
We had a great time at Isla Retreats, it’s safe, clean and beautiful. From the moment we arrived Katy made us feel at home! I wold definitely reccomend this place to anyone coming to the island. Each Villa has a beautiful outdoor space for relaxing, very private and comfortable.
