Regardless of whether it’s your first trip to Costa Rica or if you’re “Tico” (a genuine Costa Rican local), Mariposa Vacation Homes specializes in providing you with everything you need to truly enjoy your vacation experience.
The Santa Teresa/Mal Pais/Playa Hermosa area is located at the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula just north of Costa Rica’s first National Park ~ Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve. We also have the Curu Nature Preserve and Spider Monkey rescue center, Islas Tortuga, Montezuma Waterfalls, Canopy Tours and many other spectacular attractions close by.
This breath-taking stretch of pristine Pacific coastline, specifically Playa Santa Teresa proper, has been recently discovered by the jet-set crowd and voted the #1 beach in the world by Trip Advisor People’s Chioce Award 2011. No wonder it’s the preferred playground of Mel Gibson, Guiselle Bunchen, Tom Brady and many others.
Mariposa Vacation Homes is one of the largest beachfront parcels in Playa Santa Teresa. We are located in the heart of Santa Teresa’s exclusive northend, a quiet residential neighborhood less than a mile from the town center. Here you’ll find easy accessibility to all you need with the peace and quiet that distinguishes the exclusive northend.
Mariposa Vacation Homes was conceived and constructed from the ground up with careful thought and attention to every detail. We have gone to great lengths to produce indoor and outdoor living spaces that convey casual beach elegance in a functional and fashionable, zen-like, tropical atmosphere.
All of our homes offer state of the art creature comforts while surrounded by the exuberant nature that makes Costa Rica such a special place. It is not uncommon to hear and even spot howler monkeys crossing our biological corridor and Morphos fluttering through our butterfly gardens. Our homes combine the best beachfront location with the privacy, convenience, comfort and services the most discerning travelers have come to expect.
We are the only beachfront property in Santa Teresa Proper (of 95 listing on www.vrbo.com) to have earned a full 5 stars from Trip Advisor and their prestigious Certificate of Excellence Award consistently since 2013 (2014, 2015 & 2016).
Mariposa Vacation Homes consists of three private homes (Casa Monarca 6br 5 ba, Casa Yin yang 4br 3.5 ba and Casa Morpho 2br 2ba) where we sleep a total of aproximately 30 guests.
All three of our homes are uniquely designed for varying group sizes and budgets and can be combined to accommodate larger groups and events. All three homes have easy beach access without having to drive or cross any streets to reach the white sands of Playa Santa Teresa proper.
Thank you ! We look forward to hosting you.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My Dad was an executive w/Sheraton & Omni hotels, so I grew up in & @ the hospitality business. I first came to CR, in '96 to guide the Pacuare river with Rios Tropicals, while on summer break from grad school. I quickly fell in love with CR & came back every summer since. In 2000 I moved to CR for a year & began 'The Search'. In 2002 I was able to transition back to CR full time & purchased this magnificent beachfront parcel in '03 w/the sale of my Aspen property. I am an ex-Aspen, Colorado foreign language teacher, who is actively involved as a volunteer at the local public school. I have dedicated my full time efforts to developing and running a first class beach home rental operation, where people can come and relax, renew and enjoy one of the prettiest beaches in anywhere in the world...Santa Teresa, CR. Mariposa Vacation Homes, is the result of many years of dedicated work to achieve that goal.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Teresa Beach, Costa Rica:
I lived in Hawaii for 3 years & have traveled extensively both abroad & around Costa Rica, looking for the most beautiful beach in the world, where the surf is friendly & consistent. I decided to settle in Santa Teresa because it was one of the few places that actually surpassed my criteria. It's pristine white sand beaches, glowing sunsets, wonderful surf, nice people and magical tropical atmosphere must be experienced first-hand in to be truely appreciated !
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mariposa Vacation homes reflects a passion for excellence and respect for nature. Our goal here is simple: to provide every guest everything they need to enjoy the best beach vacation ever ! Our homes are comfortable quality constructions, with modern conveniences, beautiful gardens, very private and steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, wit a small intimate staff to cater to your needs... What more could you ask for ? We welcome you to come and experience the beauty and magic of Santa Teresa, and Costarican 'PuraVida' hospitality.
