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: https://www.vrbo.com/990321

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!

                                                                      Debbie K.

                                                                      Villa Mariposa is a very special place. It’s located in a beautiful spot that gives easy access to Cabo or San Jose areas. And you are tucked in the most exclusive coastal area. This is our second stay and both times we’ve brought friends and family and it manages to give everyone a lot of space and yet also facilitate large group meals, parties etc. The owners are incredibly thoughtful and responsive. We will be back!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Dan M.

                                                                      Villa Mariposa is a beautiful home located in a secure community in a perfect location between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas. The view from the balcony is spectacular, and during the winter, whales breaching provide endless entertainment. Wonderful chef’s kitchen and dining areas that easily mingle with balcony dining for larger groups. The swimming pool is nice but unlikely to entertain for a week, so going out to local beaches or beach clubs with swimming pool is a good optio . The beach in front of the house is very rough, so not a great option for swimming. (This is something you will encounter everywhere in Los Cabos). The owner was very responsive to questions and the onsite owners association resolved any minor issues/questions we had immediately. This is a treasure of a vacation spot - not to be missed! Thanks, Brett

                                                                      Stunning property

                                                                      Sue C.

                                                                      This property is absolutely stunning. The view and beach is gorgeous. The home is so comfortable and tastefully decorated. We have enjoyed cooking on the great grill and top of the line appliances. Member services has been very helpful with all of our needs. We can’t wait to come back next year.

                                                                      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.

                                                                      Gracias Julia! We can't wait to host you again soon.

                                                                      Jason M.

                                                                      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!

                                                                      cculley2Seattle, WA

                                                                      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.
