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.
Our family of four really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Mariposa - it was even too much space than we needed, but it sure felt nice not to be in each other's way on vacation. The house is right on the beach, so whoever wanted a dip could have it any time, while someone else could have some peace and quiet with a book in a hammock. The house is very well maintained, the local caretakers were there when we needed them, and stayed discreetly away when we wanted privacy. The breeze and the sounds of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. Tulum is minutes away, and we had fun visiting the Mayan ruins, cenotes (there is one down the road), and Sian Ka'an Nature reserve. The whole experience was very relaxing and we felt safe and comfortable. Thank you to the owners for letting us use their little piece of paradise!
We stayed here for a week over the Xmas period and we loved every minute of it. The villa is spacious, with well-spacd out large bedrooms, each with en-suite. The central area is gorgeous and looks onto a little beach with hammocks and beds, and once you find a path through the stones into the deeper part of the sea (not hard), the swimming is wonderful. One of the best places we have stayed in, and the housekeepers were friendly and helpful. Near to the Cenote for fresh water swimming, diving and snorkelling, and plenty of eateries nearby, although with a fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor BBQ, you might choose to eat at home.
