This home is amazing, from the moment you step in the views really take your breath away. Step outside your porch right into the water where you can swim, snorkel and kayak. Views of the water from every room and even while laying in bed. We had the best time and the location is close by wether you drive or have a cab pick you up usually within 5 minutes after you call. The caretakers are wonderful and if you get a chance have Nery make you a home cooked meal which you will not forget (she even cooked a vegan meal although she had never done so and it was just as good if not better that restaurants we ate at. Veronique the owner was wonderful thru the whole process answering every possible question I had and gave the best recommendations to everything to do. Make sure you take the 2 minute walk to the Cenote as it was a very cool experience specially when you consider is so close to house. We were blessed with good weather all week long but always made sure we had enough time to come back to the house and spend time in such beautiful surroundings. Cannot recommend this house enough as well as the area! John and Cecilia Difini
Villa Mariposa was perfect for our group of six friends. The house is very charming and had plenty of space for us to spread out or gather for meals and games. The location is great -- quiet and private, but close to Tulum and a great jumping off point for other activities in the area. We especially loved kayaking in the bay and the cenote right down the street. Veronique was great to interact with and had many helpful tips for exploring the area. Wish we could have stayed longer!
My family and I were lucky enough to spend 8 nights in this beautiful house near Tulum. The house has lots of space, nice finishes and lots of light. The water is close by, as are 3 restaurants and a really exceptional cent that runs through the mangroves. The house is about 10 minutes from Tulum which made it very convenient. We loved the kayaks and the hammocks near the water. The caretakers are very friendly and did an amazing job keeping the house cleaned up each day of our trip.
Two major things to be aware of:
1. This house has no AC. Nights can be HOT
2. The beach has retreated since most pictures were taken, including the street views on Google Maps. The beach and water is very rocky and did not offer much in the way of snorkeling.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it as a very nice home base to use for exploration of the Tulum area.
Your place is great! Very nice bedrooms and interesting architecture. Outside spaces also very relaxing and great to have a private beach place to sit. We really enjoyed Villa Mariposa and the area, particularly how it is much quieter away from the Tulum beach area and certainly Cancun. Really enjoyed being close to the cenote and enjoyed the patio and drinks at Casa Cenote a number of times. Really enjoyed Chamicos at Soliman Bay as well – great place to sit. Luis and Nery were very nice and very thorough. Taking taxis everywhere worked out well too.
The house was delightful, the ocean breezes kept us from overheating, and the location was quiet and relaxing. It was everything we had hoped for and more.
