“Beautiful home in terrific location with exceptional staff”
Reviewed April 2, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Casa Mariposa is a spectacular home, right on the water. We went with our children and another family and the house was so comfortable and accommodating for everyone. The beds are comfortable, linens of high quality, bathrooms are updated and beautiful, kitchen fully stocked, etc. There is a pool right out the back door and then a natural pool right down the steps. Chelly greeted us each morning with a big smile, made us the most delicious breakfasts I've ever had each morning, and kept our house immaculately clean. She also cooked dinner for us one night and I cannot even put into words how delicious this meal was!!
The manager, Melody, is so friendly and helpful. She even helped us through a medical issue with my son, finding the right doctors and came with us to the hospital. I am forever grateful for this. She knows people all over the area who can help with anything!
I would HIGHLY recommend this home for anyone looking for a terrific vacation in the Yucatan Peninsula. This is a gorgeous part of the world with wonderful people.

My husband, our two college aged daughters and myself have just returned from ten glorious days at Casa Mariposa in Puerto Aventuras. Melodie was wonderful prior to us leaving making sure all the necessary arrangements and details were complete. "Thanks Melodie!" Once there, we were delighted! The Villa is gorgeous, better than the pictures. The views are breathtaking. Snorkeling right off the villa is the best. Family saw a string ray! The pool and patio were bigger than expected. But, better than all those things were the people! Chely prepared delicious breakfasts and two dinners for us. She made us, undoubtedly, the best guacamole in town. Her meals where straightforward and made with her heart. Eduardo is equally delightful! If we needed anything he was available to us. He even made us fresh caught mahi-mahi ceviche one afternoon that was outstanding. Freddy is very quiet and shy, but he made sure the pool and yard was clean each day. Lastly, Cesar, who was our most wonderful, charming tour guide. He led us on a private tour of the Muyil Ruins and a float trip and another tour of the cenotes. Highly recommend seeing and doing those things and then returning to the quiet and beautiful Casa Mariposa.

“Magical Vacation to Celebrate 50th Birthday”
Reviewed November 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The only word that comes to mind when I think of my experience at this rental is Magical. The home is beautiful in many ways. The layout of the four bedrooms allows for privacy but not seclusion. The open floor plan lets in natural light and you can see the breathtaking view of the ocean from all places.

This villa is decorated beautifully, minimal and with taste. You can open windows and listen to the ocean or you can use the air conditioners to stay cool and temperate. It was stocked fully with anything/everything you could need for cooking. There were games for our use and a full array of movies to plug into the tv. The internet was good and pretty quick.

The staff was AMAZING! So happy, helpful & quite talented. Chelly was our cook and housemaid for the week. She made delicious breakfasts, hand squeezed orange juice each morning and it was perfect. She kept the villa spotless and was a joy to be around. The Villa Manager was named Eduardo. He spoke great English and he was there for any questions immediately. He also served as a bartender for us the night we had a birthday celebration dinner for all 8 of us. His fresh squeezed juices for the drinks and catering to everyone's taste was outstanding. We had a chef named Jacob who made a dinner that everyone was raving about. Each item prepped from scratch and cooked perfectly. We never wanted the party to end of for Jacob and Eduardo to leave, they were fun and enjoyed themselves as well.

I am excited to take my entire family back there in the Spring. I feel my children will love it as much as my husband and I did. Each guest has raved about their stay, the beauty of this villa right on the Caribbean ocean, the natural pool outside our back door, the comfort of the beds, they just go on and on.

I have traveled the world, I have experienced many villas, homes, hotels, etc. and this rates in my top. I can see it as a place to visit over and over again.

Do not miss the chance to experience this wonderful part of the world. Melody helped us plan our great adventure and Chef Eduardo and Freddie could not have been any better! Deep sea fishing, ATVing, diving, zipllining and the villa itself were inspiring. Can't wait to return.

“It is all about the Memories”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

The definition of a vacation is the period of time that a person spends away from home, school, or business in order to relax. Melodie and her staff make sure that is the priority while you are staying at Casa Mariposa. The property overlooking the ocean, with your own pool enhances the experience. The house arrangement was perfect as there are two master suites on the second floor. It is located in a wonderful gated community. The chef services for breakfast and dinner were exceptional and eliminates the decision making en masse when meal time comes around.

Eduardo and Freddy cooked wonderful meals and Betty was everywhere assisting. All were very helpful. Melodie is like having your own travel agent at your beckon call. She arranged transportation, golf carts, and the food. She sent a welcome packet that was very informative. She can arrange everything you could possibly need or want. We all talked about returning and that is the biggest compliment we give Casa Mariposa and its staff.

“Fantastic Family Reunion”
Reviewed March 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We recently completed a one week stay at Casa Mariposa. We ranged in age from 7 upto 65. A great time was had by one in all. The soothing sound of the waves against the rocks are there to greet you from sunrise to sunset and all times in between. The kids as well as the adults loved the pool, the hammock on the back deck, and the layout of whole house. The front walkway into the house gets you into a relaxed mood immediately. You are surrounded by coconut palms and many other tropical plants and flowers. What a setting! But what really makes this whole thing work is the staff (including Melodie). Melodie gives you more information than you would ever need to navigate Puerto Aventuras and surrounding places. Please make sure to read her arrival pamphlet that she sends out. It has many time saving and money saving hints in it. Eduardo (who does speak English and Spanish) is a great person to communicate with on a daily basis when little questions and problems arise. Betty and Freddie do a wonderful job of meeting your needs for breakfast, housekeeping, etc. We did not use the chef services available for dinner so I cant comment on that luxury. This is the second time we have rented a unit from Melodie and it wont be the last. Puerto Aventuras is our favorite place to go in Mexico. I actually feel safer here walking the streets at night than I would back In Denver, CO. To Melodie and family and staff---thank you for a wonderful week and for sharing your house with my family

“Great alternative to all-inclusive hotels”
Reviewed March 4, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

With three small children, one of our recurring “issues” when planning a vacation for our family of 5, is that we need to book two separate hotel rooms. Will they be adjacent? Who goes where? This year we decided to rent a house and rely on chef services instead. Having everyone be together but with their own space was wonderful. Another welcomed feature of this arrangement, was that rather than having the kids sit around a restaurant table waiting for the menu-ordered food to be prepared and delivered, they got to stay in bed, swim in the house pool or play around until Chef Eduardo had breakfast/dinner served. There was no rush to beat other guests to lay down towels at the pool before breakfast or being restricted to available seating times at the restaurant. No “adult only” pools. Overall a great compromise. A few points:

1) The house is just as in the pictures. Of the three rooms with kind-sized beds facing the ocean side of the house, I’d have a hard time arguing that either one is less appealing than the other. The kids’ room with two separate beds facing the garden, was perfectly fine too.
2) We felt very safe at Puerto Aventuras, a gated community with mostly foreign tourists as residents. From Casa Mariposa you can easily walk to several local restaurants, shops, ATMs, a bakery, etc. The local Santander ATM gave us the best exchange rate we saw anywhere in Mexico. And you will need the cash as many places won’t take either USD or credit cards.
3) A fairly simple supermarket is just outside the gated community (less than 5 min drive). It was nice to stock up on snacks, drinks.
4) Day trips to ruins, parks, beaches are plentiful and an easy drive on the North/South coastal road w/o the need for GPS or maps. You can easily mix it up and have a wide variety of experiences, always coming back to your lovely base camp at the end of the day.
5) Casa Mariposa made so many optional items available, you can almost come here with only your bathing suit and tooth brush. From beach towels to toiletries. They even had shopping bags and sun hats available. A fully stocked kitchen with all types of cocktail glasses. Tons of DVDs. Bikes and kayaks.
6) Even though there is no sandy beach behind the house, the rocky shore allows a proximity to the breaking waves that permeated a relaxing seaside feeling to our stay that was very nice. Falling asleep with the (natural) sound of breaking waves was one of my favorite parts of our stay.
7) Download a free stargazing app and you will enjoy the night sky from the porch even more.

If you are in a group and have a minimum of ambition to explore beyond the wet bar at the pool of an all-inclusive hotel, Casa Mariposa is a very nice alternative.
