Tropical Sanctuary Near Downtown Naples with Pool & Spa
Vacation takes on a whole new meaning at Casa Mariposa, where a contemporary sensibility meets palatial living spaces. Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic sanctuary, a family on a Florida trip, or you’re in search of an extra-special wedding or birthday getaway, here up to 10 guests can unwind in stunning Scandinavian style.
Open up the living room pocket doors to bring the outside in, slip into the heated pool and spa year-round, and wander the tropical English-style garden to pick fresh avocado, lemons, coffee, and oranges in peaceful seclusion. A lush, open green space offers a picture-perfect setting for enjoying games of croquet or badminton, passing leisurely afternoons on swings hanging from moss-clad oaks, and roasting s’mores around the fire pit.
Sleep Like Kings and Queens
Two bedroom wings flank the airy main space of Casa Mariposa. Sleep like royalty in the king-size master suite, made extra-family friendly with a twin daybed and a full-size crib. The en-suite bath is a spa in and of itself with a massive dual-sink vanity, walk-in shower, and a jetted tub for bathing bliss.
Three other uniquely styled bedrooms sleep two guests each, and two more can be accommodated on the living room sofa bed. Two additional full baths promise plenty of space for everyone to scrub down after a day in the sun at Vanderbilt Beach.
Cook, Splash & Play
The culinary-minded folks in your party will adore the gourmet kitchen, where granite counters glimmer, cathedral ceilings soar, and every appliance, tool, and supply is close at hand. Serve meals in two beautiful dining areas — one inside, the other out — and start your mornings with OJ and croissants at a kitchen nook overlooking the pool.
A contemporary-cool living room features pocket doors opening out to the patio, making it easy to relax with a movie or book while keeping track of the kids. Be forewarned — it may be difficult to draw people of all ages away from this heated swim-and-soak paradise. The double garage is an epic converted game space, complete with Ping-Pong, foosball, Wii, and a bean bag toss for endless entertainment.
Casa Mariposa is pet-friendly too, so feel free to bring your fur family along. There’s much to explore for all species here!
Though you may be content watching the peacocks meander through the thriving orchards on this one-acre property, you don’t want to miss the hustle and bustle of downtown Naples just 5 minutes away. Eat internationally at the highly recommended Sea Salt or Hob Nob restaurants as well as Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro after a day stretched out on immaculate Naples Pier & Lowdermilk beaches. Von Liebig Art Center and The REV’s Institute (Researching the Evolution of Vehicles in Society) offer hours of cultural immersion on rainy days.
From one crew of travelers to another, welcome to magnificent Casa Mariposa, a truly remarkable Naples retreat.
