I'm 56 and an Undersea Artist. You will see alot of my art on the walls of the beach house. If you love the beach and comfortable furnishings, you'll love staying at Villa Mariposa. Please be gentle with my house.
Hope you enjoy your stay.
Villa Mariposa is a private single home on a large beachfront lot. It was remodelled with high standards, easy maintenance, and in a quiet, beautiful location, yet still close enough to town to make it the ideal vacation get-away. It has easy maintenance tile floors and lots of natural light and ocean breezes, perfect for my love of painting undersea scenes.
Celestun is so wonderfully unspoiled and offers so many fun activities.
