The most relaxing family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, spacious house came fully stocked with everything needed for a fun and relaxing family vacation. All that was needed was bathing suits and food - virtually everything else was available. The owner, Marion, had it all covered. She was a pleasure to deal with, responding to any of my requests very promptly. Her house manager, Nano, was always at the ready whenever needed.

We were put in touch with people to provide rides, tours, and a car rental. An informative binder of info was at the house to give Beach and dining recommendations. The local gentry was very friendly. Practically everyone on the island speaks English. The house itself was just beautiful. Our favorite room was the screened-in dining room with gorgeous views and fresh breezes. We made mixed drinks with mangos from the tree off the deck almost every night. The beaches on Vieques are some the most beautiful we've ever been to. From big waves, to snorkeling, sea glass & shelling, swimming, beach caves, hiking, and tide pools. There is a Beach for any experience wanted. The bioluminescent bay was out of this world!! All in all my family enjoyed every minute of our vacation. Casa Mariposa was our comfy home base. Marion was wonderful to work with. We hope to visit again in the future!

My stay in Vieques

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my week long vacation at Casa Mariposa over the Father's day holiday with my was awesome. I had originally thought it was a three bedroom but there ended up being plenty of room for 6 of us and the master bedroom was amazing with the air conditioning and all the space plus the sounds at night of the critters outside in the backyard little paradise was like putting in one of those relaxation nature cd's. There was no cable but we really didn't miss it because we had wifi for the phones and my tablet and we were really only there in the evenings anyway. My favorite room was the screened in sunroom, it was amazing, I spent a lot of time in there. I would love to have one of those back home. The lady that rented us the house (Marion) is really pleasant to work with and Nano that takes care of you there as well...I would highly recommend this place to people and I would like to go back sometime in the future, hopefully. My deposit was returned very promptly, w in four days. I did not want to come home, wish I could have stayed....

Most Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Casa Mariposa! Another traveler described it as a "tree house" and that is exactly what it felt like. There was nothing better then sitting in the dinning room surrounded by windows overlooking gorgeous views of the main island of Puerto Rico and the ocean. We thought this room, as well as the entire house and gardens, were even more lovely in real life then in the pictures. We also loved eating our meals on the outdoor patio which was nice and cool in the afternoon. I was traveling with my husband and four children - we all loved the house. It was perfect - a great, open layout and equipped with everything from every imaginable kitchen gadget to many games for adults and kids. We also loved the main bedroom - once the kids went to bed it was like we were at our own private resort. The owner and her caretakers were extremely helpful with the whole process, including helping us arrange for a rental car, porto crib and a car seat. We can't wait to return!

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

Got to Vieques for the 2nd time and Nano, the housing manager, was there to pick us up. Marion, the owner, was a great communicator and got us all set up. The house is great with modern amenities and 2 comfortable bedrooms. The full kitchen was great and we adored the sunroom, which looks directly at the beautiful nightly sunsets. The property is high on a hill with few neighbors, many lizards, chickens and cats and well kept plants! Ceiling fans and cross breezes keep it cool inside! We love Vieques and this house was perfect for our stay!

Fantastic Treehouse In The Sky

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mariposa is a fantastic get away! The house is very quaint and very well equipped with everything you need. The views are fantastic, great local restaurants, beautiful beaches and snorkeling! It reminds me very much of my house in St Croix ,which we also called our tree house in the sky. Nano, the property manager, was very helpful as well as Marion, the owner, who provided a lot of information via email and in her beautiful book on the table with tips on restaurants, beaches etc..I definitely plan to return to this oasis in the sky. I suggest renting a car to explore all parts of the island. THANKS for a fabulous vacation!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful! My husband and children loved it! It was very clean, and affordable! Very good, calm location, spacious, we nicknamed it "The Tree House" because you are surrounded by trees and mountains-breathtaking! Nano the home attendant was very nice and helpful! We will definitely be back!
