Once again a delightful place to stay. August 27 - September 3. My first time at Casa Mariposa was August 2010. Been a few more times to other casa's but this time was a Mother/Daughter trip. The AC option was what I thought she might need but Mom acclimate very well, without AC. (Mom did very, very well at 83. Many were surprised at that, she kept sharing that tid bit off and on so I know she was comfortable visiting Isla.) Casa is near Punta Sur so I suggest a golf cart. Walking distance to rugged but safe scenic shore hikes...or a walk on a sidewalk lined roads on either side of casa. Breezes, sunrises and a view of iconic shell house off one patio that I often found my Mom enjoying. We got groceries and had dinner inside but also out on the patio deck with a six person table. Only one odd issue and Dan helped us take care of that. Cleaning and pool guy good. It is a compound with walls all the way around. We had evenings looking towards Caribbean that we saw fireflies in the surrounding vegetation. Love the pool bridge...unique to property in general but a great place to hang, out of the sun, and enjoy still enjoy the pool on a hot day. We met Richart who created the floating bottle island, also the turtle farm on same road. Took cell but did not use. Wifi great so ipad was a way to keep in touch as needed and share pics of our adventure. Dined on North beach area at several places. Last evening, wanted it special. Casa Mariposa does not have a full sunset view. I was going to take Mom to Zama Beach Club for dinner but something pulled me toward a nearby spot on the way there. Turned around and after checking menu at Casa Suenos a small hotel but open to public dining. Note: can even reserve private dining at the end of the pier...we saw a couple doing that who arrived when we did. A good place that we has our South Point sunset and dinner. Good food and service. To sum it up: Still Smiling.
