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!

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!

Incredible family spot!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for multiple families who want to spend time together! We were 4 couples and two one year olds and it was everything we could have wanted and more. We went on a bike ride, played yard games, cooked dinners and ate on the patio outside, went in the hot tub and pool (which was nicely heated), and had a fabulous time. The house is equipped with a pool gate you can put up for safety of little ones and even had some floats. The yard was spacious and our dog loved being free to roam and it was all gated so we didn't have to worry about her not coming back. There was plenty of cookware and kitchen utensils for all of our home cooked meals (you never have to leave!). The open floor plan left for plenty of time to connect with everyone. The beds were comfy and the house felt like it could have been ours. We definitely will be back!!!

Owner's Response: What a lovely guest! Samantha was an absolutely perfect guest: friendly, professional, respectful, and neat. The pre-booking communication was excellent and the whole process was a breeze. I would highly recommend Samantha to any other Homeway host.

Great place, beautiful house, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded our high expectations the moment we walked through the door! This beautiful home makes you feel warm and welcoming. All the rooms are very clean, well furnished and decorated to a high standard. Beds are comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for the chef in the family (my husband).

There is plenty of space to sit and relax inside or out for large groups, we were two families. We enjoyed sitting outside with a cup of coffee in the morning, swimming during the day and hot tub in the evening.

Michael, the host and owner, was a pleasure to deal with. We would most certainly return and recommend to family & friends.

Spacious home, great pool & fabulous kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time at Casa Mariposa. We all loved the layout and decor at the home as well as the convenient location to Downtown Naples and the beaches. Great pool with ample loungers, outdoor furniture and even hammocks. Loads of fun things to do in & out of the home.

The home is very spacious, we were 8 people and had ample space to move around in. Fabulous kitchen which we used a lot. Michael the host was very accommodating and prompt & informative with answering questions before our stay.

We would thoroughly recommend this home and we look forward to returning in the future.

The house and landscaping was beautiful. What a relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

You thought of everything when you furnished the house. From the games to the music to all the pool toys. We wanted for nothing. The only disappointing element was only one bedroom had an actual tv. We thought there was one n each bedroom. We were too tired to watch it anyway,but it would have been nice. The design and decor of the house was amazing ... and the pool....fantastic! Thanks for making it easy to rent and for showing it online exactly as it really is.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jeanne for your glowing review. We are glad you were able to make good use of all the games, pool & beach accessories as well as the music collection available at the home. There is actually a TV in the second bedroom, to compliment the TV in the master & we plan to add a TV to the other two bedrooms. Pleased to hear you liked the design & decor both inside & out. We appreciate you leaving the home in excellent condition and hope to welcome you all back in the future. Warm regards Michael.
