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

Safe, Secure and 20 Yards to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors, and love the upgrades that have been completed. From the new AC to the Intercom, you could not ask for more. We love the fact that you can make Alcohol free frozen beverages with the blender, and take them down to the pool and relax. When you do want to go-out, you have everything you need as far as shopping, dining and the beach just a stroll away. If you need a taxi, the cab-stand is literally 10 yards from your front door. This is a great added security measure, because there is always a Cab Manager on-duty. You can not do better for the money bar-none. When i tried and compare prices with hotels, it is the best value going based on location and the amenities. One very cool discovery i made. If you go out the front door onto the street. Turn Right and walk to the end of the block, turn right and their is a Laundry. They ARE awesome. Super cheap and they press and fold everything, ready the next day. BAM! You will love your stay...

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mariposita is the perfect spot from which to explore Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area. The apartment is comfortable, well kept and well appointed. The beach is only a couple of blocks away. There are many great restaurants within walking distance and lots of cools shops to explore. The apartment's courtyard, with its lush plantings and swimming pool, is the perfect spot to relax after a day of sight seeing. But, in our experience, the best part of staying at Casa Mariposita is the people. Lyle, the owner, was wonderful about communicating and answering all our questions. And Marinho, the driver, and his delightful family were wonderful to us! They helped us stock our refrigerator, drove us all the way to Chechin Itza, found a wedding venue deep in the jungle, and took our daughter to the airport at 3:00 AM. By the end of our stay, they felt like family! If only we could find places like Casa Mariposita in all our travels abroad!

Excellent location to Fifth Avenue and Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for two weeks. Lyle was excellent to deal with and we had absolutely no hassles of any kind. Lyle provided us with the information for the property and we had no issues in finding it and using the fob or keys. Lyle arranged for Marinho to pick us up at the airport and take us back after our two weeks were up. The property was in a great location just off 5th Avenue and close to the beach. We spent time on the deck in the evenings and walking 5th avenue. The air conditioning worked well and the beds were comfy. We used the pool a few times for a refreshing swim. We were usually the only ones using it. We did not eat at one single restaurant but tried several different ones as we wanted to try different places. All were excellent. We did cook a few times and everything we needed was supplies in the condo. There were enough towels for both the condo and the beach and it was nice to have the large shower with lots of hot water. Internet worked great as the other person with us enjoyed using it and the phone as well. We went to different beach clubs but settled on the Lido as aid was only 200 pesos for each of us to use the loungers and we were able to get food and drinks for the amount as well so really they cost us nothing. The owner or manager at the Lido cleaned the beach area each day and was very friendly. The food was excellent and the service was great. Thank you Lyle and JAN for the use of your home and we would certainly recommend it to others . We were able to also get a silver bangle at Mommas silver shop to replace one my wife had lost. The silver smith there understood what we were looking for and made one that was perfect.

Another great stay at Casa Mariposita

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently enjoyed our third stay Feb 16th to Mar 2nd. Close to everything, clean, comfortable and private. Unit is spacious has new a/c and a nice balcony for enjoying your morning coffee. Sonos music system is a nice touch as we use at home and accessed all our favorite tunes. Great value for the money.

What a great experience! Location, location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as described - relaxing with the wonderful garden views and so very close to the 5th Avenue shopping/dining and beach. I've learned a thing or two from the owners in regards to hospitality - from the assistance with the transfers from airport (thank you Marinho and family) to the property manager that delivered flowers for Valentine's Day! I can't recommend this one enough. We'll be back! Thank you Lyle and Jan for allowing us to borrow this special place for our special time.
