Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.0 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 12)

Vacation takes on a whole new meaning at Casa Mariposa, where a contemporary sensibility meets palatial living spaces. Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic sanctuary, a family on a Florida trip, or you’re in search of an extra-special wedding or birthday getaway, here up to 10 guests can unwind in stunning Scandinavian style.

Open up the living room pocket doors to bring the outside in, slip into the heated pool and spa year-round, and wander the tropical English-style garden to pick fresh avocado, lemons, coffee, and oranges in peaceful seclusion. A lush, open green space offers a picture-perfect setting for enjoying games of croquet or badminton, passing leisurely afternoons on swings hanging from moss-clad oaks, and roasting s'mores around the fire pit.

Sleep Like Kings and Queens

Two bedroom wings flank the airy main space of Casa Mariposa. Sleep like royalty in the king-size master suite, made extra-family friendly with a twin daybed and a full-size crib. The en-suite bath is a spa in and of itself with a massive dual-sink vanity, walk-in shower, and a jetted tub for bathing bliss.

Three other uniquely styled bedrooms sleep two guests each, and two more can be accommodated on the living room sofa bed. Two additional full baths promise plenty of space for everyone to scrub down after a day in the sun at Vanderbilt Beach.

Cook, Splash & Play

The culinary-minded folks in your party will adore the gourmet kitchen, where granite counters glimmer, cathedral ceilings soar, and every appliance, tool, and supply is close at hand. Serve meals in two beautiful dining areas — one inside, the other out — and start your mornings with OJ and croissants at a kitchen nook overlooking the pool.

A contemporary-cool living room features pocket doors opening out to the patio, making it easy to relax with a movie or book while keeping track of the kids. Be forewarned — it may be difficult to draw people of all ages away from this heated swim-and-soak paradise. The double garage is an epic converted game space, complete with Ping-Pong, foosball, Wii, and a bean bag toss for endless entertainment.

Casa Mariposa is pet-friendly too, so feel free to bring your fur family along. There’s much to explore for all species here!

Your Worldly Hosts, Your Naples Oasis

Michael, Rikke, Jessica, Hannah, and Lucy (plus Marley and Koda the dogs and Marie the cat) hail from the UK and Denmark and have travelled extensively to all corners of the globe. Now this world-exploring clan is happy to call Naples home, and they’re happy to help in every way when it comes to making your Florida vacation fantastic.

Though you may be content watching the peacocks meander through the thriving orchards on this one-acre property, you don’t want to miss the hustle and bustle of downtown Naples just 5 minutes away. Eat internationally at the highly recommended Sea Salt or Hob Nob restaurants as well as Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro after a day stretched out on immaculate Naples Pier & Lowdermilk beaches. Von Liebig Art Center and The REV’s Institute (Researching the Evolution of Vehicles in Society) offer hours of cultural immersion on rainy days.

From one crew of travelers to another, welcome to magnificent Casa Mariposa, a truly remarkable Naples retreat.

About Michael Page

We are an Anglo/Danish couple with three daughters who have lived in the US for 10 years now. We know the Naples area well as we've had a second home here since 2001. We lived in New Jersey for 9 years and finally moved to Naples in the summer of 2012 and are now enjoy living here full time.

Why Michael Page chose Naples

We like the specific design of the home that focuses on the the great outdoors and in particular the pool and lanai area. The home itself is open plan and modern, two features that really drew us to this home. With over an acre of landscaped gardens, its ideal for either a leisurely stroll, playing various sports or just simply picking some fruit off the trees scattered around the property.

What makes this house unique

We love the open plan, family orientated style and layout of the home that lets in light and has great views from every vantage point! The optimal design of the home means that the lanai and pool area are the focal point enticing you to go outside. The rooms are divided up in each part of the house which would be ideal for 2 families vacationing here. We love the landscaped grounds - especially the southern style charm of the swings draped from weeping oaks, the novelty of a multitude of fruit trees from mangoes to macadamia nuts and just the space to stretch your legs or play a range of sports.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great place and very accurate pics. Everything was just as we expected. Comunication with Michael was always prompt. We will definitely recomend this place to family and friends, and hope to be back!

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Mariposa. The location was great – only a short drive to Downtown Naples and beautiful beaches. The home was nicely furnished and clean. We especially appreciated the extras that came with the rental - including beach chairs, cooler and towels. We also loved the little touches like bottled water in the refrigerator and the welcome note with a bottle of wine. Overall our stay was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you!

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This home offers the perks of hotel and home wrapped in one! It's as if they knew what was needed and more. I planned many outside adventures with the family, but was out voted to stay home. With so much to do family was so happy with the pool and toys inside of the home. Hubbie and I were especially impressed with the functionality of the kitchen and all of its tools. We were sad to leave. Thank you Michael for being an amazing host!

The house had everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation at Casa Mariposa. We have been going back to Naples to celebrate the holidays with our family for 12 years now. And this is the best house we rented that suited both adults and kids. Its very well-equipped. Even with toys and everything you can think of for a nice day at the beach. The owner Michael gave us excellent service. The house is beautiful and clean. And if the weather in Naples isnt the best (we had a few colder days) its great to hang out by the beautiful pool.

Michael is a great host

  • 3 of 5

If you like Ikea - this house is for you. It was a great size for our family of 8. The beds are very comfortable. The pool and hot tub are great. The pool is heated to a nice temperature. The house was very clean. Unfortunately for Michael - some of the past guests have not taken care of some things in places such as bent blind slats and broken or missing vertical blind vanes and some linen stained which takes away from the overall impression. It would also be nice if the seating at the dinning tables could more comfortably seat 8 instead of only 6. The bikes in the garage are nice but most needed air in the tires. Also - the yard does not look as well kept as the pictures. The people before us were quite rough with the property and left no supplies which is not Michael's fault - just our bad luck. He was very attentive in fixing what they had broken as quickly as was possible. All in all - it was a nice house but not the 5 star I was expecting.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two dogs. It was a great vacation. We took our dogs to the dog park and to the dog beach and they had a blast. My husband and I want to Naples beach and enjoying an afternoon. Plenty of places to go out to eat and the house was fenced in which was great for dogs. We hope to come back in the future.
