Casa Yin Yang was the perfect beach home to spend my 50th birthday with friends & family. With all the luxury you could ask for and a laid back vibe. The location at the north end of town is was quiet (you almost have the beach to yourself )but still walking distance to great restaurants & shopping. The staff was... More

I spent a week at Mariposa Vacation Homes in the largest house, Casa Ying Yang. The house was amazing, luxurious yet beach casual. I had an opportunity to see the other houses on the grounds and they looked equally great. The property is oceanfront and insanely picturesque. I was also very impressed by the members of the staff, all of... More

Mariposa exceeded our expectations in every way. We spent 7 nights there for the Christmas and New Years holiday with 5 adults and a 3 year old. The location is ideal- close enough to walk to the heart of town bur away from the congestion, a two minute walk to the beach, across the street from a market, and a... More

I can't say enough positive things about Mariposa! The location is incredible, the units are fantastic (I stayed at two) - they are nicer than advertised, the cleaning service is very dependable. Breakfast in the morning is also an added bonus. Marta was fantastic to work with and Stefan was very flexible. I plan to travel back again!

This review is WAY overdue (sorry Stefan)! Let me start of by saying that all communications with Stephan before our travels were great! The Owner, Stefan, was easy to reach and quick to answers our questions. The reservation process was also simple and easy. We rented Casa Iguana for 12 nights. The home and property was very well kept. The... More

Casa Ying Yang was spectacular! It's Located in front of the best surf break in Santa Teresa Beach so we could simply walk out to surf any time of day! We set up our slacklines in the beautifully landscaped front yard and were inspired by the ocean views and sounds as we played on the line! The house is very... More

We rented Casa Ying Yang for one week at the beginging of June. Only four of us stayed at the property (ages 30, 33, 28, & 27) and I felt like the house was a little empty! This place could easily accomodate 8 people. The bedrooms were all very nice and the main living area was awesome with the slide... More

We had a great time in both this properties. The houses are well maintained and very beautiful. The beach is a short walk away and very private. The waves right out front. Marta, the concierge was always a phone call away and very helpful. The cleaning and gardening staff incredibly friendly and professional. It's was just great. Special thanks to... More

We spent five nights at Mariposa Vacation Homes. Our family (kids ages 10, 8, and 6) rented Casa Iguana and friends rented the other two homes. This was a great set up and something I'd recommend if families are vacationing together. Two families rented Casa Ying Yang and that is where we all hung out. Casa Ying Yang is amazing!... More
