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

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

a little piece of Heaven

We found the condo exactly how it was portrayed in the photos. It was very clean and had the basics we needed to make our vacation comfortable. The location was Perfect since it was close to the beach and many restaurants. It was a very convenient
" home base" which we commented on many times throughout our stay. Customer service was excellent. The owner answered any questions that had come up and in a timely fashion which made it very easy. They had a folder with restaurant reviews in it which helped make our decisions when we were deciding where to go. We tested many margaritas throughout the week. I would definitely recommend (and have told many to let me know if they are heading that way) this property to others. The pool, though appearing small initially, was very refreshing after a hot and busy day. They recommended a text driver to us who was excellent !!, We were sad to have to leave and go back to the real world and hope we can plan another trip soon. We'd definitely stay again.

I have rented many Condo's in the past year between Cozumel and Playa and this is by far my FAVORITE. It is perfectly located off of 5th and 28th. Very central to anything along the 5th avenue. The unit is on the second floor and has a lovely view over the pool and the common ground which is immaculately groomed. You feel you are in the tropics. There is even a small cenote. There is so much to like about this unit. I love a large shower and it was great. Hot water was never an issue. Noise at night was minor if at all. You are very close to the beach and all the best restaurants. The bed was quite comfortable. I just wish i had used the hammock on the porch!
The owner and his staff are first rate and very responsive. Very much worth the $'s spent on this unit, no regrets at all except when I packed. Minor notes- if a bicycle was at the unit then I'd pay more! :-)

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Casa Mariposita last winter and we had a great time!
Walking distance to Playa's major attractions: half a block to 5ta avenida with amazing shops and restaurants and a couple of blocks to mamita's beach with the hottest beach club in town.

The apartment was very clean, nicely decorated and it includes fresh towels. The kitchen is mid size and you can use the dishes and pans. There is a nice balcony with an electric grill and table for 6 so you can enjoy your meals outside. The building has a pool that can be used as well.

We loved it and will be coming back this winter.

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!

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.
