Property description


See what our guests have said about their stay with us:

"Comfort, Convenience, and Community"

My brother and I stayed at Villa Mariposa during our most recent surfing trip - this time in Costa Rica - and the villa has earned future repeat customers. The community itself is a handful of villas just a short walk from the end of the strip in Tamarindo. It is gated, and felt very secure. There is a shared swimming pool for lounging in the center of the community, which often became a happening spot as guests returned from the beach to cool off. The other guests were a fun mix of full-time residents, long-term guests, and people like us who were only there for the week. Getting to know our neighbors was a huge advantage - not only were they interesting and fun, but everyone had useful tips and recommendations to make the most of our short stay. Our villa, #3, was referred to by other residents as "the one with the grill" - each of the homes had some personal touches to differentiate them. Inside, the furnishings were comfortable and clean - not luxurious, but cozy enough to swallow you up at the end of an exhausting day. The bathrooms and kitchen were in working order, and stocked with basic necessities. I loved staying at this property. It's location provided privacy, while also giving us easy access to Tamarindo (not to mention, the road to the villas has many of the best restaurants in town). It was secure and well-maintained, the neighbors are friendly... it honestly felt like home. In paradise, of course. On our ride to the airport at the end of the stay, my brother and I began planning our return trip - I can't give a recommendation much higher than that.

Villa Mariposa 3 is one of the community’s most coveted units – desired for its well-kept grounds and amazing, private thatched-roof gazebo shaded by lush palms and rich landscaping just steps from the sunny pool and lounge area. The villa also includes its own BBQ, perfect for cooking outdoor meals or sipping a cold cocktail in your private gazebo while enjoying the tropical breezes.

Newly remodeled and refurbished with beach-house style, comfortable furnishings, and bright pops of color accenting the interior, Villa Mariposa 3 is the perfect place to call home on your Costa Rican vacation. The cozy 2-Bedroom/2-Bathroom home is ideal for two couples or small families looking for a peaceful stay in close proximity to all the activities, restaurants and conveniences of Tamarindo.

This fully air-conditioned unit features a classic Costa Rican vibe with colorful accents, tropical hardwoods, and open-air design. Each of the two bedrooms has a comfortable queen bed. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you could need to cook or entertain during your stay. In the living area, you’ll love kicking back and relaxing on one of the two oversized, plush couches while you catch up on email (WiFi throughout) or watch one of your favorite shows on the flat-screen Cable TV.

Villa Mariposa offers guests a wonderful combination of feeling like you’re in your own home, but benefiting from all security and handy amenities of an apartment building or condo complex. Each unit in the community is considered a proper house and feels totally separate from neighboring units with private yards and ample palm trees between each villa. You’ll enjoy pure peace of mind in this safe, convenient location as there is a gate, night guard and security guards and maintenance staff around during the day to keep an eye on things. If you have a car, you can also park inside with private, gated parking around the paved loop driveway in the Villa area.

Mariposa’s location is family-friendly and ideal for anyone who wants to be slightly removed from the main drag of Tamarindo where the nightclubs and bars are clustered. Still, great surf, the beach and plenty of shopping/restaurants are just a short walk or cab ride away. Taking a stroll to the beach or to town to stock up on groceries is no problem as you’re just up the road from all the action of Tamarindo center. It’s about a 5-7 minute walk to town and 7-10 minutes to reach the ocean on Tamarindo Beach. With plenty of taxis in Tamarindo, it’s easy to grab a quick, inexpensive ride back to the villa you’re too tired to walk after a day spent shopping the numerous local boutiques and markets or after a night on the town (Tamarindo has plenty of world famous nightlife!)

All in all, Villa Mariposa is the perfect retreat in Tamarindo – don’t forget we’re here to help with any transportation, concierge or activity/tour coordination you might need during your stay. We want this to be YOUR dream vacation and we know you can find it at Villa Mariposa 3.
