Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4

Hi, Thank you for looking us over. Our Casa Mariposita is a beautiful condo with 2 bedrooms, each with King-size beds. We also have 2 Full baths with walk-in marble showers.

We are located in the condo complex Chan Bahlum. Just a 2 min. walk to Mamitas Beach and 30sec. to 5th Avenue (Quinta Avenita) The small intimate complex has two buildings with 3 apts. in each, so at times you feel you have the place to yourself. Our condo is on the second floor with two balconies, one overlooking the street and the main balcony overlooking the pool and beautiful tropical gardens, the perfect place for coffee and breakfast.

If rest and relaxation are what you need, you've found it! We love our place in paradise and we know you will too. Many of our guests have said 'I have never felt so at home on vacation before'.

For larger groups we also have the condo above us available as well.

Please come and make yourself at home at Casa Mariposita.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was perfect! We really enjoyed the condo and its perfect location. The condo is really comfortable and nicely decorated :). We left this morning at 4 a.m. and locked the patio doors and main door and left the keys on the table. Playa del Carmen is really the best place for vacations! We fell in love with the beach and eveything around. We will definitely go back to the same place in the near future.



Thanks for all, and congratulations, your place is great .



We will try to contact you for our next vacations

a little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo exactly how it was portrayed in the photos. It was very clean and had the basics we needed to make our vacation comfortable. The location was Perfect since it was close to the beach and many restaurants. It was a very convenient

" home base" which we commented on many times throughout our stay. Customer service was excellent. The owner answered any questions that had come up and in a timely fashion which made it very easy. They had a folder with restaurant reviews in it which helped make our decisions when we were deciding where to go. We tested many margaritas throughout the week. I would definitely recommend (and have told many to let me know if they are heading that way) this property to others. The pool, though appearing small initially, was very refreshing after a hot and busy day. They recommended a text driver to us who was excellent !!, We were sad to have to leave and go back to the real world and hope we can plan another trip soon. We'd definitely stay again.

Shhhh...don't tell anyone!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many Condo's in the past year between Cozumel and Playa and this is by far my FAVORITE. It is perfectly located off of 5th and 28th. Very central to anything along the 5th avenue. The unit is on the second floor and has a lovely view over the pool and the common ground which is immaculately groomed. You feel you are in the tropics. There is even a small cenote. There is so much to like about this unit. I love a large shower and it was great. Hot water was never an issue. Noise at night was minor if at all. You are very close to the beach and all the best restaurants. The bed was quite comfortable. I just wish i had used the hammock on the porch!

The owner and his staff are first rate and very responsive. Very much worth the $'s spent on this unit, no regrets at all except when I packed. Minor notes- if a bicycle was at the unit then I'd pay more! :-)

Great little package!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a one week stay at Casa Mariposita with my brother and our mother - the condo and its location turned out to be a perfect package for us. The condo itself had everything we could have needed, and at a very fair price. We especially liked the pool and the garden, the two balconies and the free long distance calls! The layout of the kitchen needs some getting used to (limited room & lighting) but everything you need is provided. The beach is just a short walk away and offers surprisingly good snorkeling (go in the water just north of the 28 Norte point of entry, there a patch of reef right there); also there are days when there's quite a bit of wave action! Not to mention that the Mexican women on the beach are drop-dead gorgeous! On the downside the beach in that immediate area is definitely crowded. There are other, more remote beaches around - I recommend a beautiful beach on the north end of town, point of entry is around 112 Norte. The condo is surrounded by numerous excellent restaurants / bars and it is also a shopper's paradise. Be aware that some of the neighboring bars do get loud at night. If you wish for a quick change of scenery, Akumal and Puerto Morelos are just a short drive away and will offer some great snorkeling and some open spaces. Word of advice while driving in Playa Del Carmen: watch out for unannounced "topes" (speed bumps)!

Thank you to the owners who were very courteous and helpful with questions I had.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mariposita was a lovely condo, and in a great location. We were literally steps from 5th Avenue and a couple of blocks from the beach. 5th avenue has a wide variety of restaurants and shops, and we enjoyed sitting in the open air cafes and watching the night life.

The owners are kind enough to provide plenty of bottled water for drinking, and there are several options for grocery shopping in the area.

I would certainly recommend the property and the area!

Great place in Playa!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for renting us your amazing condo! We were very impressed with everything your condo had to offer... it was a lovely suite, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, a very secure & amazing location. It really was a small slice of paradise and we had an incredible vacation in Playa! We hope to return again the same time next year. Thanks again. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

the intangibles set this property apart

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this condo do represent the way it is. However, the pictures do not give a feeling of how comfy and well laid out it is. This charming property has been maintained to the 10th degree! I still think of what my wife said when we first arrived...." This place is cleaner than new!" It is positively spotless. Casa Mariposita show pride of ownership everywhere.From the marble floors to the upscale bathrooms. The ceilings are tall, allowing one to feel honey, but not closed in. The windows let lots of light in, and space is well utilized. The two balconies are unique in that they have completely different views and vibes. The inner one looks over the pool and garden area, while the bedroom balcony allows you to watch the people parade that is 5th Avenue. It is still removed enough from 5th to be quiet and the second floor gives you even more privacy. To completely escape the outside world you simply go to the inner balcony where there is a Barb B Que and lots of space. This condo is well located in Playa. You can walk anywhere, and anywhere you walk you can find fun and intriguing things. The restaurants are a fasinating blend of cultures that never fail to please. Think Mexican blended with Italian......AND..these culinary delights are an easy walk away. (Its leaving thats hard!).For me to recommend a restaurant just wouldnt be fair to you...its so much fun to just try them all. Activities in the Playa region are plentiful. We are happy sitting on a beach. Ferries to Cozumel are within easy walking distance. There you can sit oceanside at one of Jimmy's Margaritavilles or better yet head to the "wild" side of the island to a place like Coconuts, where you can imbibe and count the many colours of blue that paint the sea on that side.Some people like ruins, some like culture, some like attractions like theme parks. (very near Playa there a few of these.....personal favorite is Xel-Ha near Tulum..swim in a contained area with LOTS of marine life) Casa Mariosita would be a great place to come back to after a day of discovery. The owners are without a doubt the nicest, easiest to deal with that we have ever had the pleasue of dealing with. The lines of communication are always open and responses come VERY fast. If they say something they MEAN it and their word is ALL you need. My wife and I both agreed that we got very lucky in our choice because of the ownership. Would I return??......We have booked 3 more times for this winter.
