Guestbook comments from the manager

Do not miss the chance to experience this wonderful part of the world. Melody helped us plan our great adventure and Chef Eduardo and Freddie could not have been any better! Deep sea fishing, ATVing, diving, zipllining and the villa itself were inspiring. Can't wait to return.

Excellent location and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Mariposa was beyond amazing. The location in puerto aventuras is spot on. Walking distance to the village and very safe feeling area. The house itself is beautifully decorated in Mexican theme furnishings and very comfortable beds I might add! We just loved Cheli and miss her. She ended up babysitting for us and our baby adored her. Just sitting out on the deck was so relaxing and the perfect getaway. Can't wait to get back soon.

The Perfect Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two college aged daughters and myself have just returned from ten glorious days at Casa Mariposa in Puerto Aventuras. Melody was wonderful prior to us leaving making sure all the necessary arrangements and details were completed. The golf cart is a must for getting around town. Thanks Melodie! Once there, we were delighted! The villa was gorgeous, better than the pictures. The bedrooms and bathrooms were quite spacious, beautiful and immaculate. The views were breathtaking. Snorkeling right off the villa was the best. My family saw a sting ray. The lagoon right by the villa was perfect to cool off in on rough sea days. The pool and patio were bigger then expected. But, better than all those things were the people at Casa Mariposa. Chely prepared delicious breakfasts everyday and two dinners for us. She made us, undoubtedly, the best guacamole and salsa in town! Her meals were straightforward and made with her heart. We even arranged to have Chely and her lovely sister Lacie treat us to a couple's massage one afternoon on the patio. The sound of the ocean, a massage and a margarita. I don't think life could get any better! If I could, I would have brought Chely home with me. She is a sweetheart. Eduardo is equally delightful. If we needed anything he was available to us. He even made us fresh caught mahi-mahi ceviche one afternoon, that was outstanding. Freddy is very quiet and shy, but he made sure the pool and yard was clean each day. The iguana and it's family by the pool were very entertaining. Lastly, Cesar, who was our wonderful and charming tour guide. He led us on a phenomenal private tour of the Muyil Ruins, floated down the cannel and a boat ride through an ancient lagoon. Then another private tour, days later, of three amazing cenotes. We would have NEVER found or be able to see the things that Cesar showed us and talked about to us, on our own. Simply an awesome experience!! We were so taken by his spirit for the Mexican culture and the environment and felt so lucky to have him share that with us. Thanks Cesar! Hola Chica! We highly recommend seeing and doing all those things and then returning to the quiet and beautiful Casa Mariposa for a margarita and watching the sun set.

Magical Celebration for 50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

The only word that comes to mind when I think of my experience at this rental is Magical. The home is beautiful in many ways. The layout of the four bedrooms allows for privacy but not seclusion. The open floor plan lets in natural light and you can see the breathtaking view of the ocean from all places.

This villa is decorated beautifully, minimal and with taste. You can open windows and listen to the ocean or you can use the air conditioners to stay cool and temperate. It was stocked fully with anything/everything you could need for cooking. There were games for our use and a full array of movies to plug into the tv. The internet was good and pretty quick.

The staff was AMAZING! So happy, helpful & quite talented. Chelly was our cook and housemaid for the week. She made delicious breakfasts, hand squeezed orange juice each morning and it was perfect. She kept the villa spotless and was a joy to be around. The Villa Manager was named Eduardo. He spoke great English and he was there for any questions immediately. He also served as a bartender for us the night we had a birthday celebration dinner for all 8 of us. His fresh squeezed juices for the drinks and catering to everyone's taste was outstanding. We had a chef named Jacob who made a dinner that everyone was raving about. Each item prepped from scratch and cooked perfectly. We never wanted the party to end of for Jacob and Eduardo to leave, they were fun and enjoyed themselves as well.

I am excited to take my entire family back there in the Spring. I feel my children will love it as much as my husband and I did. Each guest has raved about their stay, the beauty of this villa right on the Caribbean ocean, the natural pool outside our back door, the comfort of the beds, they just go on and on.

I have traveled the world, I have experienced many villas, homes, hotels, etc. and this rates in my top. I can see it as a place to visit over and over again.

Wonderful service and community

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a great week at Casa Mariposa. The house was well maintained and clean, with an amazing view of the sea. Our kids swam in the pool every day. Melodie and her staff went above and beyond in terms of answering our questions, providing recommendations, and accommodating our needs. She helped arrange golf cart rentals, which was quite useful to access the Omni hotel pool and sandy beachfront where we were able to do more swimming and snorkeling (difficult to do from the rocky beach in front of the property). The food that Eduardo and Freddie prepared was one of the highlights of our trip - they made regional specialties while being sensitive to our dietary needs and interests.

It is all about the Memories

  • 5 of 5

The definition of a vacation is the period of time that a person spends away from home, school, or business in order to relax. Melodie and her staff make sure that is the priority while you are staying at Casa Mariposa. The property overlooking the ocean, with your own pool enhances the experience. The house arrangement was perfect as there are two master suites on the second floor. It is located in a wonderful gated community. The chef services for breakfast and dinner were exceptional and eliminates the decision making en masse when meal time comes around.

Eduardo and Freddy cooked wonderful meals and Betty was everywhere assisting. All were very helpful. Melodie is like having your own travel agent at your beckon call. She arranged transportation, golf carts, and the food. She sent a welcome packet that was very informative. She can arrange everything you could possibly need or want. We all talked about returning and that is the biggest compliment we give Casa Mariposa and its staff.

Perfect family vacation in a gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving week at Casa Mariposa and had such a wonderful time. The house is stunning and the photos online depict the house very well. We were so happy with the accomodations and how nicely everything is kept. It is quite apparent that the owners take a lot of price in Casa Mariposa as the home is well maintained and the furnishings make you really feel pampered. The area is full of fun things to do. We all loved our morning dip in the pool that was larger than I was thinking and the fresh squeezed orange juice we had for the special breakfasts that were cooked for us each morning. We chose to have the Chef services for all but 2 nights of our stay and was one of our best decisions. The food is fine dining quality and the price is much better than going to a restaurant especially if you want to have a drink or wine. The spectacular view of the water is breath taking. We all spent time by the pool and enjoying our surroundings. It was so nice that the bedrooms were so large, everyone had enough space and more. Melodie is exceptional. She helped us make arrangements and answered our questions timely. We can't wait to go back to Casa Mariposa, next time for a longer stay than a week.
