Enjoy the best of both worlds - if you either want to kick back and relax in tranquil surroundings or prefer the pursuits of the great outdoors - this is the home for you!
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.
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.
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.
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!
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! My husband and I came to stay at Michael & Rikke's home for a week as we were getting married in Naples. We were not going to take a honeymoon right away so we wanted to stay in a house that made us feel like we were on a "minimoon". The moment we found this home we fell in love, and the minute we stepped on the property we knew we were in love. The home fit our style. It was perfect to the last detail. The home was furnished in Restoration Hardware decor, was sleek and sophisticated, yet had a rustic vibe. We loved the open floor plan and the multiple windows and doors made you feel like you were living outdoors and one with the natural vibe if life outside.
The grounds were kept up to perfection and the pool, spa and lawn games were phenomenal. It truly was the perfect minimoon sanctuary. We didn't want to leave!
Our family has been to Naples a few times before but we have never stayed in a home as beautiful and well maintained as Casa Mariposa. We really loved the bright sunny pool area and the elegant kitchen with relaxing areas everywhere . So much space for everyone to spread out was a plus. The gardens are tree covered and exotic and the journey to the beach was short and easy. We will be back! Thank you for keeping the home in wonderful shape.
We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was clean, spacious and relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the pool and hot tub area. The kitchen was nicely equipped. The location was perfect for a quick drive to beaches and downtown. Although we were 8 adults, the home was well suited for children as well. Would highly recommend
The house is situated in a quiet residential street less than 5 minutes drive to 5th Avenue, the beaches or the supermarket making the location perfect.
The house itself is extremely well maintained and furnished to a very high standard. It was extremely clean and had everything to make our stay hassle free and enjoyable. The pool, spa, ping pong table, fuss ball and Wii games were a BIG hit with our teenagers, as was the fast wifi!
The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Always replying promptly and professionally to any questions.
I would have no hesitation staying at this house again or recommending it for a relaxing and fun filled vacation.
The home was outstanding! Very clean. It was exceptionally equipped for both children and adults! Toys galore for the kids, although they spent most of the time in the pool. We had a great time. Everyone was very impressed, including all our guests for a surprise party. They couldn't get over how great it was.
