The second bedroom has one queen bed and the 3rd bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into one king bed. Both bedrooms look onto the landscaped front garden. There are two full bathrooms with marble showers adjacent to the second and third bedrooms. The three bedrooms are air conditioned and there are ceiling fans and sparkling white marble floors throughout the house.

As well, there is a laundry room off the kitchen with full size washer and dryer. Step outside to your own private oasis surrounded by shimmering waters and a spectacular oceanfront view. The exterior grounds and landscaping reflect the meticulous care and pride of ownership evident at this spectacular vacation home.

A security guard is at the gated entrance 24 hours a day, and a security patrolman is on the beach in the evenings and throughout the night.

About Amy or Bill Welch

Bill and I manage this house for a friend. We also live at La Puntilla, a private home community outside La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Our neighbors are primarily from the US and Canada, and have also lived at La Puntilla a number of years. Multiple houses at La Puntilla are available for rent.

Amy or Bill Welch purchased this house in 2010

Why Amy or Bill Welch chose La Puntilla

La Puntilla is the perfect mix. We are half mile from the main road, so the development is quiet. Only 19 homes, few rentals. Each house has a private pool. This house, Casa Mariposa, is one of 10 houses on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and Peaceful Surroundings.

On the Beach.

No vendors or Timeshare.

OPTIONAL Cook or Chef.

Housekeeper and Property Manager included in rental price.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time at Casa Mariposa. The house was wonderful. It was immaculately clean and we were so surprised at how well equipped it was.

Every day as we lounged in the pool, we played a game where we tried to think of something that we didn't like, but could never come up with anything!

Relaxing and beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Mariposa and will definitely be back soon! Beautiful decor, lots of space. The private pool in the back was perfect. We loved being so close to the ocean and the beautiful views from the house. I'm already counting down the days until we can come again...

Casa Mariposa in La Puntilla

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year staying at Casa Mariposa in La Puntilla and on each stay it is felt like we have returned to our southern home! Casa Mariposa is right on the ocean and is very private and peaceful. No bustling traffic, no beach vendors. Just peace and relaxation with your own private pool! What could be nicer.

Casa Mariposa is a one of a kind, ocean-front property with all the amenities to make it feel just like home.

We highly recommend Casa Mariposa to anyone looking for a 1st class property with a beautiful view of Banderas Bay.

"Casa Mariposa" my slice of heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I had the best vacation ever at Casa Mariposa!! This amazing house with a pool on the beach was amazing! Bright and Modern yet with Mexican touches throughout the house.

Beds are so comfortable and never have I slept so well!

Bathrooms with huge shower heads. Pool is cleaned every couple of days. I loved to sit on the pool patio in the lounge chairs and watch the pelicans and surfers and I took so many sunset pictures on my own beach!!

On arrival we recieved champagne and cookies. We would walk down the beach to the Marina in La Cruz for fresh fish and shopping daily.

Also live music is both La Cruz and Bucharias are a must! Fun times!

We loved this home, do not hesitate to visit here, you will love it! Great house for your vacation and also to relax. We will be back!

Thank you
