Beautiful place close to the beach

We were on a girls weekend out, the beach is a few blocks away, state street is a uber ride away, everything was convenient. The interactions with Jamie was pleasant and responses were quick. Overall loved the place

Close to beach and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Jami is very easy to get in contact with and responsive, the unit was clean and had everything we needed (towels, soap, hair dryers, etc) and was easy to find and get into. The area was quiet and we could always find parking nearby. Thank you!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Mariposa! The location could not have been better, just a quick block from the beach. Close enough to State St and the Funk Zone to walk. Was there for a girls trip, 3 adults, and the size worked perfect for us. The pull out couch is the most comfortable I've slept on. Although we didn't use the kitchen at all it was fully stocked with everything you might need. Jami was wonderful host and always got back to me quickly. Would love go back with my family!

Great property, but a few little fixes would make it even better ...

  • 4 of 5

Firstly, Jami is a great host and good communicator. She overlooked a couple of non-urgent questions I sent, but overall was very responsive and accommodating. The flat's location is excellent, as the beach, park, and local market are just 2 blocks away. There are plenty of beach and shower towels, plus 2 beach chairs, boogie boards, and some toys / balls. The children were tickled by the handmade welcome sign and there are lots of nice little decor touches and fresh flowers left in vases.

A few not-so-perfect details future guests should know:

-We chose this flat because of the location, and for the back patio, which we planned to hang out in and let our kids ride their scooters around. Unfortunately what was described and shown in the photo as a "back patio area", is actually just the parking lot for the building, so we didn't feel comfortable letting the kids scoot around out there.

- there are neighbors upstairs which you can hear walking around in the morning.

- the futon couch shown in the photo is actually a pull out sofa bed.

- the extra rollaway bed is very springy so we needed to put extra layers of blankets to provide cushion. There is only 1 fitted sheet provided for it, no flat sheet and no extra linens for it.

- there are no hooks to hang towels in the bathroom area, which becomes a challenge when you've got 4 people with wet swim clothes plus both shower and beach towels!

- the laundry is coin-only.

- the quantity of pots and pans is quite minimal and not all have lids , and we found many items not as clean as they should be -- coffee cups with fresh stains (some dripping down the sides!), rust on the knives and tea kettle, utensils with stuff still stuck to them, and the bathroom faucet very dirty. It seemed like it was overlooked by the cleaning crew and unfortunately my feedback about it was not acknowledged.

- the indoor dining tables are very small.

- the water temperature control in the shower takes a long time to regulate.

- the morning garbage pick up (which we didn't know about) is very early, and the loudest and longest pick up I've ever experienced!
