We loved it! We were two small families staying in Casa Pelicano for a week. Four adults and three small children. The house is very comfortable and has great social areas, integrating the living room with terrace dining with the beautiful backyard/pool/jungle. The terrace and pool was where we spent most of our time when we weren't actually at the...

This property is in a great location, just on the edge of town, but still walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants! Marta the concierge was an amazing help! Havering a car was optional, but worth it so you can explore the neighboring towns. Private pool, private chef, all worth it! Only thing I'd suggest are more lounge chairs by...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mariposa Private Beach homes began as little more than a dream and a vacant parcel of land in 2003. Our mission is to offer private, well built, clean and comfortable houses with everything necessary to enjoy quality vacation time with your family and friends. This is an ongoing project, and every year we continue to make improvements to our infrastructure, houses and gardens. We are committed to becoming as sustainable and community friendly as possible. Our employees are 100% local (born and raised) help and we use local products and suppliers whenever possible. We are also founding members of our neighborhood association, know as AVSTN for it’s Spanish acronym, volunteer at the local public school and have served on the board of directors of the local water board and AVSTN. Mariposa Private Beach Home’s commitment to improve the quality of life of our employees and growing town extends beyond our gates, as we are involved in various community projects as the recycle program, monthly beach clean-ups, education programs in the public school, public water, roads and security issues. ... more   less
