About the property

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

Home Away from Home with a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The location, literally steps away from 5th Ave is just one of the reasons Casa Mariposita is so great. You can walk less than a minute and you have can actually see it from the door. The condo was perfect for myself, my husband, my sister and 2 nieces. My nieces loved the Apple TV...please no more Doc Mcstuffins! Rooms are good size with king size beds and large bathrooms for each. The condo is very secure & we loved the key code to get in if one of us didn't have the key handy.

The condo was also very clean and I felt very comfortable staying there. It has all the towels, beach towels, kitchenware, and appliances you could ever need. Lyle and Jan keep the condo very nice. The pool was refreshing to use for a swim whenever we wanted. My nieces throughly enjoyed the pool. We walked to the store 10 minutes away and got a ton of groceries for $120 then we caught a cab back. The laundry service is steps around the corner and was extremely inexpensive.

I unfortunately slipped & fell on the stairs at Xel-ha halfway through my vacation and ended up with a bad ankle sprain requiring crutches and renting a wheelchair. Erika, the manager was a total sweetheart when I mentioned needing an ace bandage. She actually dropped off two for me then returned the following day with cream for inflammation. Lyle called me the day after my fall to see how I was doing and if I needed anything. I have to continue using crutches for another 3 weeks.

Lyle emailed me back promptly throughout the booking and up through our arrival back home. You won't have any trouble finding a restaurant because there are hundreds outside your door. A few of Lyle and Jan's favorites are in a book they have. We loved El Muelle on 5th Ave. Lyle and Jan I cannot thank you enough for the lovely stay we had at your wonderful condo. We would love to return.

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place in a great location. It's close to the action of 5th Ave but not "in" it. Also very close to the beach. I've stayed in many condos in Playa and this is a good one! The wifi also surprised me in that it is very good and reliable. The owners are very tuned in and take great care of you. The place even has its own phone! I stayed a week. Thanks for the great stay!!!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my husband, myself and our 20 year old daughter. Two KING SIZE beds - ours was the most comfy bed I ever slept in (memory foam - you are my new amigo). The location was ideal - really. My husband says that the condo needs a new couch - but who wants to spend their time on the couch, anyways. It is more like a futon, so could work as a bed. While a little noisy late at night for a few select hours as it was close to 5th Ave, we enjoyed being this close to the action and didn't mind as the music or chatter which always quieted eventually. We slept thru it, no problemo. The bar near the condo played such good music but the real lively ones were very far away. It is nicer than being on the hotel strip. We were minutes from Starbucks or other coffee shops and 5-10 minutes from the beach, depending on where you want to be. The condo is very secure, and there is an outdoor shower, and a pool. The setting is absolutely beautiful with tropical plants and romantically shaped architecture. The deck was so inviting. Everyday, it took us mere minutes to walk to where we wanted to go. We had extra service from Marinho and Denisse who also offered us a ride to and from the airport including a grocery trip. What we would have done without them, I don't know. We will go back.

Five Stars - Location/Amenities and Safety

  • 5 of 5

Location: Steps away from Playa’s famed 5th Avenue. You have everything you need within 20 yards of the front door. The one thing I noticed right away is even-though your right off the 5th Ave. The condo’s location is incredibly quiet at all times of the day and night.

Amenities: Once your inside, you’re basically in your home away from home. Everything has been thought-out and is well stocked. You will want for nothing, even during an extended stay.

Safety: This is HUGE with us when traveling. This condo location is more of a private compound. The initial entrance is locked to anyone without an access key-code. So you will not have cross traffic. This location would be perfect to bring children/grandchildren.

Restaurants/Coffee/Beach Access: All of these are important items are right outside the door.

Overall: Without a doubt this is one of the coolest place you can visit in Mexico. When your there, you feel like you’re on vacation. And you can book with confidence. We are returning later this year for the simple fact that it’s easy. East to get to from the Cancun airport. Easy to pick up some groceries to stock the fridge. Easy to enjoy your surroundings. Everything you need is within walking distance or using taxi service.

Enjoy! --- R & J Travel Team…
