We stayed here 2 weeks last year and 10 days this April 2014. This gated house has everything.We have a big family so some of us stay in places close by and use this house to gather. Nice big kitchen with windows and doors that open out to the ocean surf. Huge stone patios with lots of tables and sitting...

From our one-week experience, the MVH's (website) description of CASA IGUANA proved to be accurate in its entirety. If anything, Concierge Marta's potential contributions to a wonderful vacation might be understated: she can have surfboards and bicycles there on your arrival. The small house's efficient use of space is best for a family of four; or for four very familiar...

Casa Ying Yang is an amazing dream of a vacation home. I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 days, and I must say that it was perfect. It starts with the wifi, which was spot on from the minute we walked in. Of course that is the fist thing anyone does after traveling to a place like this...

I stayed at the Yin Yang house overlooking the ocean. Spent hours in the beautiful kitchen making huge meals for my group of 12. The jacuzzi was a godsend and the shower made me feel absolutely deific. About a hundred yards away is a beautiful beach with nice waves for boogie boarding, and there's a market just across the street....

Our family of 18 thoroughly enjoyed an extended stay over the New Year's Holiday! The majority of our itinerary was planned before we even arrived with the help of Marta the Concierge! She was extremely helpful before and during our stay seeing that our wishes were fulfilled! One of the highlights of our stay was the delicious food prepared in...

We spent the first week of March at Casa Yin Yang to celebrate our daughters birthday. Her only birthday request was to return here, where she spent her birthday years before. The owner has put considerable thought and effort in keeping the house current. The recent renovations made the house better than ever. Marta the concierge helped arrange everything we...

This was our second stay at Casa Pelicano. Our first stay was in 2008 before the renovation. We enjoyed our stay very much last time so much so that we booked the same house on our return visit. And it was perfect timing since the house had recently had an addition to accommodate our group as we invited friends to...

We were fortunate enough to spend the last week of January at Casa Iguana. By day two our 13 and 10 year old children had inquired if the home was for sale and were scheming of ways to move in forever. Casa Iguana was perfect for us. It had all the modern conveniences and so so much more! The kids...

This review is WAY overdue (sorry Stephan)! Let me start of by saying that all communications with Stephan before our travels were great! The Owner, Stephan, 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...

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
