Casa Mariposita on 28th - Steps from 5th. and Mamitas Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 26, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Hi, Thank you for looking us over. Our Casa Mariposita is a beautiful condo

with 2 - bedrooms , each with King-size beds. We also have 2 - Full baths with

walk-in marble showers.

We are located in the condo complex Chan Bahlum. The small intimate complex

has two buildings with 3 apts. in each, so at times you feel you have the place to

yourself. Our condo is on the second floor with two balconies, one overlooking the

street and the main balcony overlooking the pool and beautiful tropical gardens, the

perfect place for coffee and breakfast.

The condo is located just off 5th Ave. (La Quinta Avenita) on Calle 28 in the newer

upscale area of "Playa". Just a 2-min. walk to Mamitas Beach which has 2 really great

beach clubs. There are fantastic restaurants, coffee shops, gelato and ice cream parlors,

shopping, and little open air bars all around. You can walk everywhere! Unless you are

planning day trips out of Playa, you don't need a car. For groceries you can walk to Mega Pelicano then take a $2 cab back.

If rest and relaxation are what you need, you've found it! We love our place in paradise and we know you will too. Many of our guests have said "I have never felt so at home on vacation before".

Also, if you need accomodations for a larger group of people. We have a condo available above ours as well.

Please come and make yourself at home at Casa Mariposita.

Lyle and Jan Davis

Everything was perfect! We really enjoyed the condo and its perfect location. The condo is really comfortable and nicely decorated :). We left this morning at 4 a.m. and locked the patio doors and main door and left the keys on the table. Playa del Carmen is really the best place for vacations! We fell in love with the beach and eveything around. We will definitely go back to the same place in the near future.



Thanks for all, and congratulations, your place is great .



We will try to contact you for our next vacations

Great little package!

  • 5 of 5
Just came back from a one week stay at Casa Mariposita with my brother and our mother - the condo and its location turned out to be a perfect package for us. The condo itself had everything we could have needed, and at a very fair price. We especially liked the pool and the garden, the two balconies and the free long distance calls! The layout of the kitchen needs some getting used to (limited room & lighting) but everything you need is provided. The beach is just a short walk away and offers surprisingly good snorkeling (go in the water just north of the 28 Norte point of entry, there a patch of reef right there); also there are days when there's quite a bit of wave action! Not to mention that the Mexican women on the beach are drop-dead gorgeous! On the downside the beach in that immediate area is definitely crowded. There are other, more remote beaches around - I recommend a beautiful beach on the north end of town, point of entry is around 112 Norte. The condo is surrounded by numerous excellent restaurants / bars and it is also a shopper's paradise. Be aware that some of the neighboring bars do get loud at night. If you wish for a quick change of scenery, Akumal and Puerto Morelos are just a short drive away and will offer some great snorkeling and some open spaces. Word of advice while driving in Playa Del Carmen: watch out for unannounced "topes" (speed bumps)!

Thank you to the owners who were very courteous and helpful with questions I had.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Casa Mariposita was a lovely condo, and in a great location. We were literally steps from 5th Avenue and a couple of blocks from the beach. 5th avenue has a wide variety of restaurants and shops, and we enjoyed sitting in the open air cafes and watching the night life.
The owners are kind enough to provide plenty of bottled water for drinking, and there are several options for grocery shopping in the area.
I would certainly recommend the property and the area!

Great place in Playa!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for renting us your amazing condo! We were very impressed with everything your condo had to offer... it was a lovely suite, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, a very secure & amazing location. It really was a small slice of paradise and we had an incredible vacation in Playa! We hope to return again the same time next year. Thanks again. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

the intangibles set this property apart

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of this condo do represent the way it is. However, the pictures do not give a feeling of how comfy and well laid out it is. This charming property has been maintained to the 10th degree! I still think of what my wife said when we first arrived...." This place is cleaner than new!" It is positively spotless. Casa Mariposita show pride of ownership everywhere.From the marble floors to the upscale bathrooms. The ceilings are tall, allowing one to feel honey, but not closed in. The windows let lots of light in, and space is well utilized. The two balconies are unique in that they have completely different views and vibes. The inner one looks over the pool and garden area, while the bedroom balcony allows you to watch the people parade that is 5th Avenue. It is still removed enough from 5th to be quiet and the second floor gives you even more privacy. To completely escape the outside world you simply go to the inner balcony where there is a Barb B Que and lots of space. This condo is well located in Playa. You can walk anywhere, and anywhere you walk you can find fun and intriguing things. The restaurants are a fasinating blend of cultures that never fail to please. Think Mexican blended with Italian......AND..these culinary delights are an easy walk away. (Its leaving thats hard!).For me to recommend a restaurant just wouldnt be fair to you...its so much fun to just try them all. Activities in the Playa region are plentiful. We are happy sitting on a beach. Ferries to Cozumel are within easy walking distance. There you can sit oceanside at one of Jimmy's Margaritavilles or better yet head to the "wild" side of the island to a place like Coconuts, where you can imbibe and count the many colours of blue that paint the sea on that side.Some people like ruins, some like culture, some like attractions like theme parks. (very near Playa there a few of these.....personal favorite is Xel-Ha near Tulum..swim in a contained area with LOTS of marine life) Casa Mariosita would be a great place to come back to after a day of discovery. The owners are without a doubt the nicest, easiest to deal with that we have ever had the pleasue of dealing with. The lines of communication are always open and responses come VERY fast. If they say something they MEAN it and their word is ALL you need. My wife and I both agreed that we got very lucky in our choice because of the ownership. Would I return??......We have booked 3 more times for this winter.

Cute condo close to everything

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place! It was so cute--exactly as shown in the photographs. It is small, but very cozy and comfortable. Everything was sparkling clean, and the beds were actually comfortable! The pool is small, but perfect for cooling off. The showers were awesome with plenty of hot water. And did I mention how clean?

There were plenty of cups and plates and everything we needed for cooking (which I know isn't a very exciting comment, but I've stayed in places that aren't well equipped enough to really appreciate that).

Location--this is close to absolutely everything you'll want to do. Just steps from 5th Avenue and all the fun there, and an easy cab ride to things off the main strip (like the restaurants the locals sent us to). We are divers, and the condo was just a few blocks from the dive shop and beach.

What I appreciated most though was how helpful the owner was. He recommended the dive shop to us, which we loved. And he arranged a driver to and from the airport, who was also wonderful. He was super responsive to every question I had, which was especially appreciated when we had a state-side glitch with passports and thought we might have to postpone the trip. His calm and courteous replies to my frantic messages kept me sane during those few days.

This is a great condo and you will enjoy your stay. We plan on staying here every time we visit Playa in the future.

Little Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Mariposta was a terrific place to stay. Very clean and the pictures posted on the VRBO site were very much the excellent appearance of what we found when we arrived. The location was perfect for what we were looking for, close to the beach and 5th Ave. but quiet for sleeping at night. We made use of the two decks whenever we were around the condo, the one off the bedroom was great for people watching and the one off the living room for more relaxing quiet time. The kitchen worked well for making a quick bite to eat when we weren't frequenting all the restaurants provided in the guests reviews. Lyle, the owner was very friendly and quick to respond to every question & need we had before, and during our stay. It is so refreshing to be promised so much and delivered even more than we expected! We will definitely be back! Thanks Lyle & Jan for sharing your little piece of Paradise with us. We will DEFINITELY be back!
