Secluded Home in the Rainforest A Few Steps to the Beach & A Few Minutes to town


3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9 This private home on the coast of the Pacific Ocean (2 Minutes Directly Across from the Beach) is 2 stories, offering privacy between levels, spectacular ocean views, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen downstairs with granite countertops and bar, kitchenette upstairs with granite countertop, refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave and breakfast table, living room, custom swimming pool and full laundry room. Located on almost an acre, with a private driveway and surrounded by a lush rainforest with no neighboring homes close enough to disturb your privacy, you'll enjoy the spacious patio and 'botanical gardens' in peace and privacy. You'll thrill in the native trees and plants (pick your own bananas when in season) and wildlife that visit regularly, including toucans, macaws, parrots, colorful iguanas (harmless) and, occasionally, monkeys. A custom pool (December 2006) affords a luxury retreat from the day's activities. Casa De Mariposas sits on almost an acre, has no contact with the street or public and is completely private and secure. We have a 24 hour Security/Manager who lives in a 'guest house' separate and down the hill from the main house and at the driveway entrance. This makes concern for the security of children a non issue as they 'roam' the patio and grounds. Because Casa De Mariposas is isolated slightly off the coastal road with no other homes to see you, you feel you're in the middle of a rain forest completely isolated and very private yet the beach is just across the coastal road. You are ten minutes from the town of Jaco by walking along the beach or three minutes by vehicle. The main house is completely protected by walls, terraces, artistic wrought iron fencing and gates. When you enter the front gate you are on a spacious patio that surrounds the front and sides of the house with separate patio tables, pool, glass blocked outdoor shower and plants and trees. An added bonus as guests of Casa De Mariposas is the full use of The Club Del Mar across the street including their large pool and Spa. It is a private resort and can arrange all the activities you may want such as fishing, ATV's, zip lines, surfing (lessons, rentals etc.) etc. Their dining and lounge are 5 star and the staff will treat you like Kings and Queens as guests of Casa De Mariposas.

    Great location and a terrific home!

    What a wonderful stay we had at this home in Jaco! Les thinks of everything and his intro to Costa Rica email is a must read! The staff on the property (Angie and Richard) are very friendly (as is everyone in the country for that matter.) They can help you with whatever you may need during your stay. The property manager Fernan can take you on any tour you may want to have while you are in the country, he is very knowledgeable and a good resource. We had 6 adults and 1 child in our group and everyone was very comfortable during our stay. The amenities at The Club Del Mar are impeccable and certainly a nice bonus to have while you are here! I highly recommend a stay at La Casa De Mariposas!

    Fantastic! Gorgeous and user friendly.

    Wow, what can say about this incredible home? Clean and comfortable. Everything was great, Fernan the driver, the 2 young care takers who made us feel right at home and took care of any needs we had. The privacy, the spacious rooms and pool made our stay perfect as well. We enjoyed the parrots flying over us while refreshing ourselves in the beautiful pool. This house is only minutes from downtown Jaco where we enjoyed shopping and meeting the locals. We made friends with a very friendly taxi driver and called upon him anytime we needed a lift. The only way to travel while in Jaco. $4-$5 each way, including tip. Places I would recommend to eat or drink, Morales House, The Taco Bar, Cocal and Casino Dining Area, & Restaurante El Recreo,. The Beatle Bar is an interesting place to have a drink. You can find a drink every 500 ft. So stay thirsty my friends. FYI, avoid a place called Bar and OZ Hotel. Trust me on this. Being overcharged seems to be there passion. All the other bars and restaurants we visited enjoyed very much. You will run into more honest and friendly people than dishonest ones. Casa De Mariposas is the place to stay if you love your privacy. The owner is one heck of a guy. So, what are you waiting for - book it now before someone else does. Because someone will. Enjoy your stay in Jaco my friends. WE SURE DID! LARGA VIDA Y SER FELIZ (LIVE LONG AND BE HAPPY)

    A month of sunshine in a beautiful home....

    My husband and I recently returned home from a month long stay at Casa de Mariposa. Such a wonderful time! Although we have traveled to Costa Rica several times before, this was our first stay in Jaco. The house served our purposes almost perfectly as a starting point for lots of activities such as visiting a coffee plantation and volcano, excursions to the Mangrove and Tercoles River (Monkey and Croc viewing), ATV'ing and visiting friends in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. At the end of a busy day we loved floating in the pool, and Richard and Angie were on the property to help with any thing we needed. Best of all was Fernan, who served like a private concierge and was certainly someone we counted on to help us navigate by picking up and returning our friends to the airport, planning activities for us, and generally, being there to answer questions and help us familiarize ourselves with the Jaco area. When we had a friend suffering from what was diagnosed as heat stroke, Fernan was the person who came to our rescue. For Senior Citizens (yes, that would be us) he was a lifesaver of sorts and so helpful, hospitable and knowledgeable. We loved starting out our mornings on the balcony, rocking in our Costa Rican chairs and reading our Kindles, and having a washing machine and dryer on site was a welcome addition. And the wi-fi works fabulously. Finally, the folks at Club del Mar Resort across the street could not have been more accommodating and we spent quite a bit of time there at the bar, restaurant and spa. The owner, Phillip, graciously invited us to the SuperBowl Party and we enjoyed celebrating with the other U.S. Citizens. All in all, the only less than stellar thing is that the road below is noisy (we are "country folk") but we understand that this is being "worked on" with the police and other homeowners and Club del Mar. Slowing the truck traffic and posting no "Jake breaking" would help immensely, but this is a minor issue when compared to all of the wonderful plusses of Casa de Mariposa. No car needed here, folks. Between taxi service, buses and Fernan you will be set!

    Dream House

    I only stayed here for two days and nights. I wish it was available longer. Two friends and I stayed here from Fort Lauderdale. The house was perfect. Its just 2 minutes from downtown, has a private beach, balcony/patio, great A/C and wonderful management. The house is in supreme condition. When we arrived, we were greeted by the managers of the house. We were given a quick tour/run through of the house and town. Any question we had was answered and we were given great advice. Woke up with the sun and went out to the balcony to see a gang of monkeys getting food from the trees outside before heading back into the rainforest. There's also a trail/old road that winds up into the forest where you can find colorful frogs, birds, monkeys, and amazing views overlooking the ocean. I couldn't be happier with my stay.

    Great place to stay.

    Where should i start this is the place to stay in Jaco with great views and a great location. This is my second time in Jaco and this was by far my best stay and best vacation, there is nothing better than to wake up to a great view outside the balcony as well as all types of birds chirping throughout the day. The location is perfect close to everything but at the same time away from it all for days that you want to relax by the pool and BBQ. This house has all the amenities you can ask for it felt like a second home. It was easy to book this house working with Les and his wife Shelly it was a pleasure. i will definitely be coming back and staying in Casa de mariposa. Les helped us set up a pick up and drop off from the airport with his guy Fernan. By the way Fernan is an awesome guy to work with and he will help you out with booking any and all kinds of activities. Can't wait to go back PURA VIDA!!!!!!!!

    We had a wonderful time.

    This is a beautiful well maintained home nestled into the side of the mountain rain forest. Several species of birds including toucans, macaws, frigate birds etc would pay frequent visits. The walk to the beach was very short. About 3 minutes. Fernan and Derien were very responsive with everything we asked of them. Highly recommended. We will be returning next year. Todd and Roberta
