The space

Casa Mariposa, is an exquisite 3 bedroom home, situated in Villas del Maya, Playacar, Playa del Carmen. A 5 minute walk from the beach and famous 5th avenue, it is the ultimate in Mexican charm. This perfectly located home features a large secluded backyard, with private plunge pool, ideal for intimate sunbathing and private personal entertaining. Two second floor terraces provide beautiful vistas of the turtle pond and 2nd green of the famous Robert von Hagge designed Playacar golf course, now Hard Rock Golf Course. Von Hagge, the original owner of Casa Mariposa, ensured he had a one of a kind home and best location in the area. Morning coffee on the terrace, glimpses of exotic birds and animals, and the evening sunsets are breathtaking and inspiring.
The indoor living flowing seamlessly to the exterior, is truly Mexican. Beautiful mahogany woodwork, mexican tiles, and original decor will provide a uniquely Mexican sanctuary.

Vanda's home is beautiful and was the perfect place for my friends and I stay for our week in Playa. The house is really well equipped, well located and clean. We loved the pool and bbq area and Tara who manages the property was very welcoming and helpful, booking us a mini van and driver for the excursions we wanted to do. Would love to go back!

We felt very welcome on our arrival at Casa Mariposa. The property manager, Tara, was waiting for us and so were the pre-ordered groceries and cold beer. The house was as described on airbnb, with a beautiful view of the golf course and it would easily sleep 8 people. There were lots of other Canadians and Americans in Villa del Mayab. Our oldest daughter (5) mastered snorkeling in the condominium pool. We never felt unsafe. It is an easy walk to 5th Avenue and the beach. The walk to the beach was "an adventure through the jungle" every time. This is a very good location, the house is clean and very comfortable. I would go back any day. Thanks Vanda and Glen!
