Arte + Diseno

The last six nights of our recent trip to Isla Mujeres, we tried someplace new!  Arte + Diseno on Juarez.  Today I thought I'd post a link to the Facebook page and website and include some of my photos from our April stay in the studio.  Like the Facebook page and take a look! 

Old colonial style door to Arte + Diseno.

 Looking out the window onto the front patio.

Comfortable patio benches.  I spent a few afternoons lying here reading a book.

The seaglass collection looks like it belongs on the rustic white table. 

The patio that fronts Juarez.  It actually sits about a half-story above the street.  This area of Juarez gets a cool breeze from the ocean, so it's a great place to relax, read a book, listen to music, watch the neighborhood, etc...  Early in the morning and late at night, you can hear the sound of the waves!

The shabby chic Yucatan colonial studio comes equipped with A/C, sound system, and a small kitchen area which includes microwave, fridge, and hot plate.  I'll admit to never using the microwave or hot plate! 

For those who don't feel like walking the few short blocks into the heart of El Centro, La Lomita and Victor's Cafe Havana are just up the street.  In fact, we could see La Lomita from the front gate and Victor's just a few steps on up the hill for carryout!

La Lomita is just up the street.

Looking down Juarez from the front of the patio.

Dining on Victor's Cuban sandwich and salad on the front patio.

Bathroom window.  The entire studio has a very Zen feel.

We really enjoyed our stay at Arte + Diseno. Meg and Peter have done a great job creating a comfortable chic colonial studio in the heart of the Juarez neighborhood on Isla! 

And here's a little tip.  You're very close to a special treat! The Flan Lady's right next door.  She sets her glass case out on the plastic table in the street most evenings.
