  • Even better than the pictures

    "I searched long and hard for a nice place to take my family in Tulum. We're a family of six with four kids (23, 21, 18, and 15 - girl, boy, girl, boy). We flew into Cancun from Maryland and rented a van and drove to Tulum. We stopped off along the way in Playa de Carmen for a late lunch and some high energy fun. We arrived as it was getting dark so we were a bit worried about finding it. Luis, the building supervisor, met us at the gate to let us in. (Let me also mention that Luis is AWESOME. He is friendly, attentive and responsive to any needs, and has a great attitude. He kept our beach clean and clear of any seaweed, moved our cushions back and forth to the waterfront palapas, and always has a smile. And why wouldn't he? He works in Paradise. The owner, Luu, is awesome as well. She is truly vested in our family's best interest and aims to please - but again, this place does most of the work by itself) Our girls had their own KING size bed EACH in their own room w their own bathroom, the boys had their own bed (one was a double bed, the other a single) and their own bathroom, and my wife and I took the back bedroom, queen bed, with its own bathroom. The setup was perfect. The living area was huge and enjoyed every day and night. We made breakfast every morning. There is a store about 8 minutes away by car and it is a Mexican Super WalMart w/ EVERYTHING you could possibly need. (you can't buy beer until after 9 AM. Lol. My bad on that one. And btw, a 12 pack of Corona was $5! Also: bring Mexican pesos instead of US dollars - they go farther). Renting a van was A LOT easier than I anticipated. It made us very portable. Every day was a different adventure: many cenotes to explore (you HAVE to see and experience them!), Tulum ruins, natural parks, fishing trips, snorkeling, the WORKS. I have two Vegans in the family and there were TWO outstanding vegan restaurants within walking distance from the place: "Restaurau" and "Charlie's Vegan Tacos". And Charlie is a super cool dude. Each meal we had was a good as the next and there are SO many to choose from. There is a brick oven pizza place about 150 steps away (where my kids hit three different times late!). The concrete deck is about 45 steps to the water. Palapas and beach recliners are for US and us only to use. There is a beachfront bar next door! And boy do the stars fill the night sky. Amazing. Man, this was fun to write as I revisited Tulum and our awesome vacation."

  • Home Away from Home

    "A wonderful accommodation choice for our recent family holiday of 5 adults. We were all very happy with the size and location of the condo. We liked the large, comfortable and clean rooms and the daily maid service was excellent. The AC in the 2 bedrooms and the large ceiling fans were very efficient and made our June stay comfortable. The under cover outdoor pool was a refreshing cool-off spot in the heat as well. We loved the location: the quiet north end of Half Moon Bay with its private beach, easy access to the beautiful bay for good snorkeling and short walk to the wonderful lagoon. We rented a few bicycles from the office for our stay and it was well worth it, as it's an easy 10 minute ride to town then over the highway bypass to Akumal Pueblo. We enjoyed the roof top views, the garden setting, the range of reading materials, the board games and flippers for snorkeling. ( We had packed our own masks and snorkels). The ample supply of drinking water provided in the kitchen was appreciated. We found USA Transfers an excellent service for transportation from and back to Cancun airport, and appreciated the one hour stop in a large supermarket on the drive down as we did much of our own cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. The only concern was very limited Wifi service, a problem for 2 in the group who were planning onward travel. Fortunately, they accessed Wifi service at nearby bar and restaurant La Buena Vida. This wonderfully casual place appealed to the kid in all of us! I would certainly recommend the condo to friends and thank owner Deb and condo staff for a safe, relaxed and comfortable holiday.

  • A glorious home base

    "All the good things people have said about Villa Mariposa are 100% true. All 3 bedrooms are beautiful, spacious & removed enough from the main area to make everybody feel they had their space. Being 'slightly padded' Canadians, we were concerned how we'd fare without air conditioning but it was fine. The ocean breeze graces every bedroom and the fans help too. You might want to bring earplugs as the jungle is not always quiet - lol. There are a few birds who are rehearsing to be alarm clocks and it made us snicker most mornings as they did their vocal warm ups. Luis & Nery are wonderful caretakers & their kids are polite and sweet. I wish we'd had Luis cook for us but we never quite got our act together. We love the friendly, quiet road where Villa Mariposa is situated and having security at the entrance just enhances how safe the area is. Strolling down to Blue Sky Pizza for a meal or exploring Casa Cenote were convenient treats. Our group ranged in age from 17 to 61. All of us love to get out and explore but I must say that the best days were spent at Villa Mariposa... the days when we'd wake up and leisurely have coffee on the patio, letting the sun and sea greet us. Eventually we'd grab our snorkel gear and swim out in search of another stunning adventure. We saw stingrays, eagle rays, hundreds of fish... we'd stay out watching for hours. Eventually we'd drag ourselves out of the water and flop into the hammocks under the palapa with a cold drink. Lunch, siesta, then more lazy beach time watching the sun go down. True peace. Thank you, Veronique & family, for sharing this magnificent gem with us."

  • Wonderful stay away from the madding crowds of Cancun !

    "We are a family of 5, with 3 children aged 9, 13 and 16. The 'casita' really met our expectations : we were looking for an authentic experience in Mexico, far from the huge all inclusive resorts of the Mayan riviera. The village is peopled with Mexicans, Canadians and Americans. A short walk on a nice dirt path in the jungle will lead you to the nearby village of Chemuyil where you can buy your grocery or eat in nice restaurants. Two different cenotes are located within 100 meters of the casita, one is great for swimming as it is in open air and it looks like a natural pool in the middle of a natural garden, the other is more for snorkeling addicts as the major part of it is underground ! I particularly enjoyed walking alone on the beach (10 minutes walk through a nice path) and watch the sun rise in the morning, and even in the middle of the day during peak season ( we were there during the Christmas vacations) the beach was very quiet. We all enjoyed the waves during the windy days, and snorkeling on the coral reef which lies about 100 mts from the beach and is easy and safe to reach. In Akumal, about 10 minutes drive, we had the chance to snorkel with big sea turtles and stingrays, without having to pay for a guide. In Tulum, about 15 minutes drive, you can find a big "american style" supermarket, and of course the mayan ruins. The casita itself is simple, but functional. We did not use the air conditioning, because temperature was really nice. We enjoyed our meals outside, listening to colourful birds and watching friendly iguanas basking on the top of the walls. Big plastic water bottles are provided since it is not recommended to drink water from the faucet in Mexico... All windows and doors are protected by iron bars, but once again the place itself is very safe ( but you never know...). We liked the decoration in the house, very ´local' and personal. The only issue we had was with the internet, you have to plug a usb stick to your computer and recharge it from time to time as there is no wifi, but this only bothered our 16 year old teen... Cellular phones work very well if you really want to stay in touch with your relatives and friends ! The owners answered very quickly to our queries. We already look forward to our next vacation in the 'casita' ! Thanks Bill and Brenda !"
