For our 10th consecutive year vacationing in Aruba, we thoroughly enjoyed our 12-day stay in this more than spacious and beautiful Opal 57 vacation home. The Noord area of Aruba has fabulous homes, and the Mariposa is definitely gorgeous!
The villa is in a terrific location and was also easy to find. We were welcomed upon arrival, and were introduced to all areas of the house and property so that we could get situated with ease. The villa Is very close to the beach, close to local grocery stores, and other shopping outlets. The accommodations were just perfect for our family, and we had no complaints about anything during our stay. We had plenty of privacy! With the hot Aruba weather, the large villa has ceiling fans throughout as well as air conditioning; and there was always a nice breeze from the trade winds throughout the day!
The furnishings are modern and well maintained. Mattresses on the beds are also very comfortable! There are 2 Patios (rooftop terrace and main level) which offered enjoyable views and plenty of sunshine and ample comfortable seating. The villa has Internet/Wifi and two flat-screen TV’s with a wide range of channels. The main floor contains a large and spacious open floor plan — living area with kitchen and dining, leading out to an even larger backyard patio and space with a large In ground pool, beautiful landscaping with palm trees, volleyball net, Tiki hut, BBQ grill.
We look forward to planning our 2020 Aruba vacation as we absolutely loved our stay at this vacation property; and we most definitely recommend Villa Mariposa - Opal 57! Thank you to the Marin family!
The property at 423 Oceania Resort had everything we needed. It was my husband and I and our 3 children (ages 16,14 and 11). The unit itself is modern but cozy. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Eagle Beach is amazing and right across the road which was simple to cross to get to the beach. The resort itself is more subdued, but we kept ourselves busy only to enjoy the quiet. There are activities to do on the beach during the day by the resort, but if you are looking for a bar/restaurant, this property does not have that. There are a few restaurants close by to choose from within walking distance. If you are looking for quiet and relaxing, this is the place for you!
