Our 3 night stay at Casa Mariposo was just wonderful!! Couldn't have asked for anything more from this hilltop bungalow! It is so well stocked with everything you may need - ample towels, linens, chairs, pillows, cooking stuff, books, DVDs, toiletries, kayak, ample snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach umbrellas - you name it and it's there! The house is decorated very tastefully too. The property has lovely gardens around and a patio to enjoy views and relax. Outdoor shower helps coming from the lovely beaches. Both bedrooms have large king beds, and we could easily sleep 3 on each. A/C is available in the bedrooms and fans in the living rooms. There are 3 comfortable futons in the living room to sleep 3 more should you need. 2.5 baths. Perfect for a large group! Ours was 7. The caretakers live right across, just in case you need them. And Marion was so very helpful and easy to correspond with! She gave great recommendations for beaches, snorkeling, dining and everything else in general about the island. Her hospitality and her amazing property made our stay just perfect.
Couple of things to keep in mind - the property is on top of a steep hill, so a stronger vehicle will be helpful. And the property is in Isabel, 15 minutes drive from Esperanza, which has most good eating places.
Take nothing away from this property though, you'll love it. The price is very reasonable and it would be hard to find greater value anywhere else on the island for the money you pay here. We wish we could have stayed longer. Totally recommended!!
