Know Before You Go...

Mariposa is just a few paces from Taylor Bay beach, one of the most stunning, quiet beaches on the island. Mariposa is so close to the beach, its enormous pool seems to flow into the ocean. If you want can’t decide between quick ocean access for swimming and snorkeling or chilling by the pool with a good book and a cool drink, then Mariposa is the perfect solution.

Short walk to beach!

Mariposa is an oceanfront villa with unobstructed sunset views and easy access to the sea. This vacation rental is steps from Taylor Bay, which is known for its sugar white sand and deserted shoreline.

The best part about Mariposa is its oceanside dock, which gives guests direct access to the sea and a scenic spot to relax as the waves crash underfoot. A staircase leads back up the bluff to the villa’s terrace, which holds the large infinity-edge pool and dining veranda. The pool seems to flow into the sea, and is bordered by lush foliage for privacy and ambience. A large patio surrounds the home, with several sitting areas and an open frame to bring in the sea breeze. There’s no better place to read a book or play cards, with tropical flora peeking through the ceiling beams and plush furnishings. With all the outdoor amenities, there’s hardly any need to go inside.

Terra cotta floors, wood paneled walls, and 25 foot cathedral ceilings adorn Mariposa’s interior. The villa has a flatscreen TV, library, and a cozy sitting area in the living room, which leads into the kitchen. Fully equipped with a coffeemaker, standard appliances, and a breakfast bar, the kitchen is ready for any meal. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room next to the kitchen or outside on any of the various dining tables. A washer and dryer are also available for guest's use. The villa offers three bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom and air-conditioning unit. The king suite has exterior access and ocean views, the queen suite has garden views, and the third bedroom can be made up as a king or twin suite.

Taylor Bay Beach is a short stroll from the villa's private driveway, and its waters are shallow enough for young children. Also, there are several tennis courts, an 18 hole golf course, numerous restaurants, shops, and a casino near Mariposa.

We Love Mariposa

Mariposa Villa, villa review

This was our second return trip to Mariposa. The villa, privacy, and views were amazing! The onsite team did a great job maintaining the villa and getting it into perfect shape for our visit. We loved the large covered deck area and pool, which kept us cool. The kitchen was well stocked with basic essentials. The bed and linens were very comfortable, but we spent most our time outside on the deck enjoying the privacy and unlimited views of the ocean. The only issue was dealing with the aggressive mosquitos and insect population. Bring plenty of insect repellant and keep the bedroom doors closed.

Andrew and Wheretostay.com were very easy to work with, and while he is remote, he maintains excellent contact and follow-up skills to answer any questions you may have. You gotta love anyone with a professional title of "Chief Beach Officer"!

Beautiful view from the porch

Mariposa Villa, villa review

Andrew at WhereToStay was fantastic. He worked with me on a tight schedule to find us a private property. We showed up just 3 days after booking and house was clean and totally ready upon arrival. Hope was there to meet us, and she gave a quick rundown of the place. She was very kind.

Thanks for a job well done!

Stunning View

Mariposa Villa, villa review

Comfortable, well maintained villa only a short walk to Taylor Bay and 2 minutes from Las Brisas! Some of the ladies struggled with mosquitoes. I'm not sure why, there was a steady breeze and we kept the screens closed, but they got bitten nonetheless. So, pack insect repellant. Otherwise, we had a relaxing, enjoyable week. Be sure to catch the Thursday night Fish Fry.

As always, Andrew was at the top of his form. From narrowing down places to stay to recommending restaurants and activities, he was invaluable.

Beautiful View!

Mariposa Villa, villa review

My family had a great stay at Mariposa. The view is spectacular, the pool is lovely and the house itself feels cozy and is tastefully decorated. The house is conveniently located near Taylor's Bay, the nicest beach on the island. The sea kayaks were a great way to explore the surrounding waters. We got to see a 5' lemon shark off our dock one night to the delight of everyone. The only issue we had was that the dishwasher was broken for most of our stay - an inconvenience to be sure. Other than that, we would recommend this villa to anyone visiting TCI.

Andrew was great, as usual. Sixth villa we've rented from him.

Rent this house

Mariposa Villa, villa review

Mariposa is a fabulous home! The furnishings, appliances, mattresses and bedding are all top of the line. The wifi worked all the time. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, glassware and cutlery, everything you would have in your own kitchen. You always wonder what the home is really going to be like- will it be run down, beside a discotheque, will the pool be green- but this one really was fabulous. The pool was beautiful, it wraps along the length of the deck. I swam 5 minutes to Taylor Bay, many times from the dock, we kayaked with the kayaks provided with the house. Privacy was 100%, although for a few nights we had noisy neighbors next door. A call to Andrew solved the problem. Otherwise the house is located on an quiet dead end street.

From the deck you look to Sapodilla Beach on the left, or straight ahead to sailboats moored way off shore, very private. In my opinion it is the best location on the island. We rented a car and headed out each day to a different beach, or grocery shopping, potcake rescue, restaurants... nothing is very far away. It is well worth it to rent this house and have a much more private vacation than staying on Grace Bay, and you'll have better swimming than on Chalk Sound also. There were only 3 of us staying in the home, but with full capacity of 6 people there would be plenty of room. 5 different seating areas would give everyone plenty of space to relax in.

I will stay at this home again, it made our trip to TCI an exceptional experience.

Andrew was the best, very easy to deal with, answered all our questions promptly, with patience. Nice to deal with someone with a sense of humour.

Five stars, but with a few bumps.

Mariposa Villa, villa review

The villa location could not be beat. It had beautiful views, comfortable furniture, and a nice kitchen.

However, the master bedroom king was broken, so we had to sleep in another room. The maid, who was scheduled to come once each week, never showed. In addition, not all of the ceiling fans worked.

On the plus side, the location suited us well. We enjoyed our vacation.

Also, Andrew was informative and helpful.

Mariposa has spectacular views.

Mariposa Villa, villa review

The view was even more spectacular than the pictures on the website. We were mesmerized all week.

The pool was beautiful, and the water temperature was just right, i.e. not too warm. The couches and chaises under the covered deck and on the patio were very comfortable and plentiful.

We also loved sitting on the dock down on the water. We saw sea turtles, a dolphin, a whale, a pelican and a barracuda with a baby along with lots of different fish. We used the kayaks a lot, but also swam out to the reefs which you can see from the deck. They are perhaps a couple of hundred yards off shore. (It is a good idea to tow a tube so that the motorboats will see you.)

There are two beaches nearby, both of which are beautiful. The water is crystal clear. The house is very comfortable, in general, and nicely appointed. We did not need the air conditioning.

Andrew was very responsive and polite. We asked A LOT of questions, and he answered them all.
