About Brett Rapkin

We are a Southern California family living near the beach in Marina Del Rey. Although our home is blocks from the Pacifiic Ocean, nothing compares to Cabo San Lucas where the beach meets the desert. Our children are all adults now but our visits to Cabo still highlight our travels.

We also have a sister property, a two bedroom ocean view condo:

Brett Rapkin purchased this villa in 2007

Why Brett Rapkin chose Cabo San Lucas

Every year our family would visit Cabo San Lucas for an annual Thanksgiving trip. Eventually we fell in love with Villa Mariposa and have had many wonderful memories there. Recently we decided to share the villa with select friends and renters so they can make their own memories there. We love to relax by the pool with a cold drink, watch sports on the big screen TV, work out in the gym, and visit both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.

The location is phenomenal. The view is phenomenal. The Villa is phenomenal. A happy place!

We got to stay at this beautiful villa over the holidays and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a spacious home and provided everything our group of 6 adults needed. The amenities enhanced our time, too - from the well appointed kitchen, to having a washer/dryer, WiFi throughout, and the beach toys. Initially, we had a little bit of a problem communicating with the Owner Services group, but after hearing from the owner, they became more responsive to our inquiries. The owner is so conscientious and went out of his way to make sure our stay was perfect. Despite it being the holidays, Brett read his email and came to our assistance immediately. The villa is in a great location, too. We hope to be able to stay there again in the future, and we'll definitely encourage other friends and family to do the same.

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

I had a large group stay at Villa Mariposa this past Spring. The villa was spectacular - the view and location/proximity to the beach cannot be beat. As the organizer of the trip, everyone congratulated me on selecting such an impressive place for our stay. It is truly better than we expected. In fact, we ended up spending an entire day lounging by the pool instead of our original plans to explore Cabo. We also hired Dennis Catering for dinner the first night we arrived and I would strongly recommend hiring them again. They prepared a four course dinner for our group and left the fridge stocked for breakfast the next morning. Kudos to the owner for making sure our transportation was arranged to/from the airport and making our stay an enjoyable one. Beautiful Villa and well-maintained (and gated) location will ensure a return visit for our families!

Great Vacation - Will come back

  • 5 of 5

Just came home from a week at Villa Mariposa with our close friends - 3 adults, 4 teens/tweens. The place was terrific and great location. Some highlights/notable call-outs:

* Lots of open space in the house, including a nice 'family room' on the lower floor where the kids hung out

* Convenient location right near gate to beach

* Short walk to Sheraton which has several restaurants and even a coffee place that serves Starbucks

* Very responsive onsite staff and owners have been GREAT

* Overall beautiful gated area

* Saw LOTS of whales - as close as 20 feet off the beach!

* Beach Volleyball net on the beach was a hit.

A few things to consider

* I would recommend renting a car as taxi's are very expensive (we learned the hard way) and it is a car drive to grocery, town, etc. For example, it cost us $25.00 each way to go to Walmart. we ended up getting a car mid-trip.

* As with many places in Cabo, the beach is not swimmable.

* A great casual restaurant to consider is La Lupita in San Jose Del Cabo. We also had good meals at the Mexican restaurant in the La Girasolas at the Sheraton.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We were on a family vacation which included 3 generations, ranging in age from from 1 to 75. Villa Mariposa had something to offer all ages! The two story layout provided more than enough space for all 9 of us. The owners were so kind and responsive leading up to and throughout our stay. They provided us with information about the area including restaurant suggestions, activities and sight seeing. Owner services also went above and beyond when we needed anything. The views from the pool and second floor terrace are amazing. Plenty of whale watching and star gazing from the comforts of Villa Mariposa! A quick 10-15 minute drive to downtown Cabo, plenty of restaurants within 5-10 minutes of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning walks on the beach and breathtaking sunrises. This was our third trip to Cabo and by far our favorite property and location!

We have stayed in the finest resorts over the past 25 years and Villa Mariposa (in my opinion) was one of the most spectacular vacations. The pictures simply do not do this home justice and the days at the beach were some of the best beach days we have ever had! Owner Services was gracious and kind when we needed anything. We are grateful to the homeowners for sharing their "heaven on earth" with us! Simply Amazing!

Tip: Make dinner reservations in Cabo well in advance! And do not miss Edith's!

Perfect Getaway Adventure

  • 5 of 5

The stay at Villa Mariposa was excellent in every way. The beautiful warm interior is comfortable, inviting and very well maintained. The outdoor pool and Jacuzzi provide a view of the golf course which creates the ideal setting to relax and soak-in the "Cabo experience". The close proximity to town was an added bonus allowing easy access to all the wonderful things that Cabo San Lucas has to offer. The owners went above and beyond to ensure a very positive and memorable experience. I would highly recommend the Villa Mariposa to anyone seeking a deeply enjoyable getaway.
