  • A comfortable home “in the jungle”

    "My wife and I, and our son, his wife and 1 year old son spent 9 days in Casa de Mariposa. The two floor building worked well for our group. Our son and his family slept in the upstairs unit, which has two rooms (and a kitchen – but no living area) and we slept in the downstairs unit (which is like a bachelor apartment with a small living area / kitchen). We all used the kitchen upstairs and greatly enjoyed the upstairs outside deck. The upstairs is quite well equipped. We were comfortable staying there, although a few things could be improved: the damaged wicker deck furniture fixed or replaced, one of the deck ceiling fans fixed (it wobbles a lot), a plug provided for the upstairs kitchen sink, the lower unit door fixed so that it closes without having to turn the deadbolt. The building is in a small gated complex that is full of flora and fauna. We saw more animals just sitting on the deck that we saw on our hikes in area parks. Our most fun sighting when when a troop of squirrel monkeys ran across our roof and then one by one jumped down to a branch on a tree right in front of the deck. We also spotted big lizards, a sloth, macaws, toucans, etc. We enjoyed the shared pool in the complex, although some days it had quite a bit of algae. The on-site property management staff were friendly, although they didn’t speak English, so communication was a challenge. Even the neighbours were very nice – one boosted our battery when it died because I left the lights on. He appreciated the beers I gave him the next day. The complex is located just south of Quepos and north of Manuel Antonio. We rented a car the whole time we stayed there, so we could do day trips. There’s not much within a reasonable walking distance. We did an outing to the Manuel Antonio Park, which we enjoyed, but we enjoyed our outing to Rainmaker Conservation Park even more. The park was more isolated, had many fewer people, the scenery was awesome, and the hanging bridges were fun to walk over. We even went for a swim in a stream’s pool and climbed up to one of its waterfalls. For one beach day, we spent some time on Playa Espadillia, a huge beach in Manuel Antonio, before the park. It has tons of fine sand (which can get very hot) and fun waves to play in. We really enjoyed our stay at Casa de Mariposa and exploring the awesome nature in the complex and sites nearby."

  • What a wonderful, fun filled and delightfully elegant home to stay for 10 of us, including 2 kids.

    "We were treated with a very high level of care and concern. Our manager (Alex) was most responsive to calls, emails, requests for cabs and trip/tours etc and always available to us. He provided us an excellent group of drivers and helpful places to shop and sight see. He was very knowledgeable of the area and resources. I would recommend him highly, in fact, only book a home that he is responsible for. Our maid (Dessi) also needs to be commended for keeping the place so neat, tidy, clean and she was very friendly. The animal towels were also a big hit. Thanks to you all, for a great vacation and wonderful holiday, we can not thank you enough."
