What Past Guests Are Saying
What a place!
For a week we had our own little slice of paradise. Villa Mariposa is spacious, very well situated and equipped; the kayaks were a bonus and the wifi was faster than at home! Great views from the various terraces. It would be difficult not to be able to totally unwind here. Swimming and snorkelling a few steps away with fishing, diving, cenote and beach bars all within a few minutes walk. Tulum had all we needed for shopping. The meal at Ginger (in Tulum) was great (Arrachera con Salsa de mi MamĂˇ - memorable). Akumal and Xel-Ha an easy drive away.
A little paradise
We spend one week during spring break at Villa Mariposa. The house is stunning, with plenty personal touch. The bay in front if the house is very impressive: great location for snorkeling and kayaking. One of the best memory I have is the view from the shower while overlooking the bay at sunset! Amazing!
We felt very safe and extremely well taken care off by the caretakers, who lived next door.
I would strongly recommend Villa Mariposa to a family or a group of friends that are looking for a quiet, intimate and very comfortable accommodation.
Rest and relaxation by the sea
We loved Villa Mariposa! It was such a joy to awaken every morning to sunshine and a view of the bay. The best part was walking out the door and onto the beach. We did a lot of relaxing, reading books, snorkeling, trips to the ruins, and relaxing. Did I say that we relaxed? That was the best part of our trip. The driving from Cancun to Tulum, and negotiating the Chedraui grocery store in Tulum was not difficult at all. Lots of fresh veggies and plenty of the same food you find in the us. All the store aisles were in Spanish and English. Having a full kitchen, was a great bonus and really helped us with saving money. Lots of great beach restaurants on Tulum beach too. Our nine year old loved it too! If you are thinking about going and renting this villa by the sea, do it!! You won't regret it. The owners were extremely easy to deal with and very helpful. The caretakers of the property were great too.
Beautiful, relaxing, luxurious, tourist-friendly location
My girlfriends and I spent a week at Villa Mariposa(from Feb 25 - March 3). The house was absolutely beautiful and the perfect size for 5 people who wanted to spread out. The house is situated right on the water and we spent many hours reading, lounging, talking and enjoying the beach.
Inside the house, the 3 bedrooms (each with a bathroom!) were very comfortable, each having comfortable beds, fluffy comforters and pillows and well-working ceiling fans(which were usually not needed while we were there). The kitchen contained everything you needed if you wanted to stay home and cook(which we sometimes did). If you wanted to stay home and not cook, Narie and Luis, the wonderful caretakers of the house who live in a separate home on the premises, will cook you a delicious Mexican meal for a very reasonable fee. Narie also cleans the house every day but Sunday and she kept the house looking beautiful. We did eat a number of meals out and there are a lot of good restaurants in nearby Tulum (we particularly liked sharing the grilled whole fish at La Nave.) There is a large supermarket right in Tulum and smaller groceries
For those wanting a good swim in beautiful surroundings, there is a cenote (watering hole) less than a 5 minute walk from the house. There's a good chance that you'll see/hear various wildlife while you're there (and after your swim, you can indulge in delicious nachos and a margherita at Cafe Cenote, close to the watering hole/cenote).
Given the concerns over safety in Mexico, it was good to see that, at the start of the private road to the house, there is a always a security guard who checks each vehicle before it is allowed in. I never felt anything but safe while I was there.
We took a few excurions during our week at Villa Mariposa (Tulum, Akumal, Sian Ka'an) but we were so happy and relaxed that we sometimes opted to stay home.
I heartily recommend Villa Mariposa!!

Thank you so much for the glowing review! We are glad you and your friends had a relaxing time. Isn't it the perfect place to hang out with friends? :-)

Our family of five (Mom, Dad & 3 teenaged boys) had a wonderful week at Villa Mariposa. As the boys said, the house is "awesome"! The location was great, and the house itself was beautiful and relaxing. We kept ourselves very busy with so much to do in the area, and then would come back to the house to unwind. The onsite caretakers kept the house nice & clean, and even cooked us a pollo fajita dinner one night. We would highly recommend this lovely home, and hoep to make it back there ourselves!
Sands Point, New York
In my twenty-five years of travel I truly cannot describe a place rivaling the pristine natural beauty, exquisite dĂ©cor, and privacy of Villa Mariposa. The house is located upon Tankah Bay, steps from the chrystal clear water, and ample visits from pelicans, frigates, herons and opsreys. Covered in stunning shells and coral, with abundant hermit crabs and marine life, the Bay is a perfect location to decompress, snorkel, kayak or swim. The inside design includes impeccable selections of local folk art and wonderful breezy open rooms with ample cooling by the east-west cross-currents. And while the house feels very private and secluded, it is a quick walk to a delicious local pizza place and the haunting manatee cenote which is connected to the largest underground river system in the world. Tankah is located between akumal and Tulum, so it is a perfect spot to rejuvenate and then enjoy the funky festive restaurants and beaches in those areas. Veronique, the owner, was professional and responsive and receptive to any questions or concerns I had over my more than three week stay. I will certainly visit again and would encourage anyone to take the opportunity to partake in its tranquility and majesty.
London, United Kingdom
We had a wonderful and relaxing 10 days in this beautiful house and would highly recommend it. Our baby daughter was right at home, toddling over to the beach every morning, delighted with the birds, butterflies, lizards and warm sea.
The villa itself is large and very tastefully done. The views are stunning, the rooms are large and all the showers a real feature! The house is large enough for 3 groups to do their own thing, although you will need a car to get shopping in or go to Tulum.
The owner was extremely helpful with all sorts of advice to make our stay more comfortable and the family that look after the place were a delight. The place is very well maintained while you are there without being intrusive and Luis' cevice and other cooking is great!
The bay itself is lovely for snorkelling and kayaking and there is a fantastic cenote a few minutes walk away for early morning dips.
Our family had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to coming back!

Words can barely describe how much we enjoyed staying at Villa Mariposa. The property was exactly as advertised. Once you are there you will realize that it is much more beautiful than what the photos convey. The caretakers were very charming and did a great job of making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions, providing guidance for what to consider before traveling, and being flexible regarding travel dates. I would highly recommend to anyone that they should stay at Villa Mariposa. In fact, we hope to stay again sometime.
The house is just a few minutes from Tulum, which was an enjoyable place to shop and eat. The ruins at Tulum are nice, be sure to bring your bathing suit because there is a great beach inside the ruins itself. Another great beach is just south of the ruins, along the beach hotel zone. A little further south from the town of Tulum are the ruins of Muyil, which features the tallest structure of the coastal ruins. The ruins at Coba are not far either, and you can climb to the top, although it is very steep. Just north of the house on Hwy 307 is Xel-Ha, which was a lot of fun. It is a lagoon with nice snorkeling, as well as activities such a riding a zip line and floating through a tunnel of mangroves. The food, which is included in the price of admission, is great, and all you can eat. We enjoyed Xel-Ha much more than Xcaret, although the evening show at Xcaret was enjoyable. Another good snorkeling spot was Yal Ku lagoon, near akumal. The beach at akumal was nice, but the "town" was not all that interesting. For a fun little town, try Puerto Morelos instead. It is between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, a little over an hour north of the house. In Puerto Morelos, for $25 you can take a nice snorkeling trip from the cooperative by the dock. They take you to two different spots out on the reef. There are many vendors and a really good selection of restaurants.
Lovely home right on the beach, private and very comfortable. Everyone able to find a quiet space and then all come together. Water good for snorkeling; 2 little boys (4 and 8) loved combing the beach for anything they thought was of interest!
