About Marisa Bodell

We are an expat family that relocated to Puerto Morelos from Washington D.C. two years ago. We've lived all over the world learning different cultures and languages and discovered Puerto Morelos after seeking refuge from D.C.'s too hot summers and freezing winters. It has always felt like our home and we wanted our children to learn Spanish while they experience the Puerto Morelos quality of life. We love it for its diverse community, European style cafes and dining, and amazing beaches.

Why Marisa Bodell chose Quintana Roo

Casa Mariposa is a newly built 3 bedroom luxury house with a private pool and a short walk to the beach. The house is large and airy with easy access to town, and everything you need for your vacation. It is very private and peaceful, the perfect refuge to thaw out from the winter cold while discovering the Mayan Riviera.

What makes this house unique

This is a large house in the nicest neighborhood in Puerto Morelos. In addition to all of the amenities that come with the house, we have a concierge who will help arrange everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Whether you need a pre-stocked kitchen with the freshest produce and seafood in the region, or a private tour of the jungle for the whole family, our concierge knows the best kept secrets with access to experiences reserved for locals only.

Gorgeous house, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation at Casa Mariposa and I love it just as much as the first. The house is so perfect! It's right near the beach and town. We love to walk into town in the morning to have breakfast and walk to the beach. The house is large and airy, even with our group of 5 we had enough space. The master bathroom is a complete dream, and air conditioning in every room was a major bonus. I read a few reviews about the internet being spotty, but we had great service the entire time. We will be back next year!

Peaceful Casa Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 10 people (three generations) and loved it. We wanted something away from Cancun chaos and found this peaceful, quiet house that is easy to get to. The kids loved the pool. The walk to the beach is short. The neighborhood is quiet. There are some good restaurants (Maricio recommended El Markito that was amazing) and able to eat in the house. We could get to tours and Xcaret easily. We loved it.

truly a villa by the sea

  • 4 of 5

The property was well located and well appointed. The pool was lovely (although I would recommend a mat by the door so as not to slip). We enjoyed the location of the beach around the corner and the town , a few blocks away.

Mauricio, the caretaker, was a phone call away, and showed up to show us the working of the entire home. I think the upstairs terrace has seen better days. Needs a good overhaul and definitely a hammock. The view of the stars is amazing but unfortunately I had no place to sit on the upper terrace. There was also no hot water at night for bathing or showering.

The kitchen , bed, furniture, and washrooms were all well used and provided much enjoyment. I loved sharing this place with 3 generations and would definitely come back again.

Property not as described.

  • 1 of 5

We were a group of six for a 70th birthday getaway. We arrived to a house that was not clean. A house cleaner had to be called in. This aging property (as described by manager) has potential but is in dire need of long overdue interior and exterior maintenance. The kitchen stove needs replacing. Essentials in the kitchen were missing. Dirty refrigerator. Not even a working toaster. We could not use the kitchen. Torn curtains and screens. Peeling paint. One bed broken and unusable. I do not understand reviews from January 2016 because these problems are long standing. The pool area was algae covered and unkempt. No landscaping attempt or cleanup. Tried communicating with owner and was offered a birthday cake or tamales. Communication ceased. Our week was not what we expected from description. The manager said she could do nothing without OK from owner. I would not stay here again until upgrades are made.

Owner's Response: Dear Marcia, We were shocked to hear of your unfortunate experience. Rest assured that the property had been inspected and all necessary upgrades and maintenance has been performed. Our staff has also been retrained to ensure the luxurious experience we are known for. Please do note that our tropical environment brings an extraordinary amount of rain, and our location just steps from the beach means we get a lovely sea breeze. Both are wonderful, but tend to wreak havoc on our landscaping and maintenance. Although it is not unheard of to see spots of rust now and again, rest assured that all of our appliances are top of the line and well maintained. Please accept our apologies to your entire party, and we’d love to extend an invitation for you to return to Casa Mariposa any time in the next year for a free night. Muchas Gracias, the Staff and Management at Casa Mariposa.

Basic house in great location

  • 3 of 5

I traveled to Puerto Morelos with my husband and 2 kids ages 2 and 4. The house was in a great location, just 2 blocks from a fantastic beach. The house manager was very helpful and friendly and was available whenever we needed him. The house was very basic. It had the essentials, but definitely lacked in charm. The place could use a deep cleaning, fresh paint, and nicer bedding. Some of the bedding had stains on it. I think I had higher expectations based on the previous reviews and the house description. The wifi did not work for the first 5 days of our stay so that was frustrating. We will definitely return to Puerto Morelos, but will probably find a different place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Maggie, Thank you for your review. We have heard your comments and updated the things you found unsatisfactory. The bedding has been upgraded, the house has been repainted and deep cleaned. I apologize for the internet mix up. This is the first outage we have had in 3 years. We would love a chance to host you again.

Beautiful house with private pool just two blocks from the white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. A ten minute walk from the heart of Puerto Morelos, the best kept expat vacation secret. Escape in a chic beach-town filled with vibrant cafes and world class restaurants using the freshest local produce and fish caught just off shore.

Puerto Morelos is 15 minutes south of the Cancun airport and a 30 minute drive Cancun and Playa Del Carmen.
