Please have a look at the video of the property, it's somewhat hidden but you will find it if you scroll through the pictures.

This unique butterfly shaped villa will surprise you with its spacious layout. Villa Mariposa has 4 bedrooms, 3 in the main house and 1 as part of an attached, fully equipped apartment. The Master Bedroom has a double shower. All bedrooms are spacious and have extra large beds. Each room has it’s own unique character and color theme. Airconditioning and ceilings fans will give you a cool nights sleep.

Spend the warm tropical days around the large salt water pool. Enjoy the shade and breeze in the gazebo and a late afternoon drink in the lounge area. Take advantage of the air conditioned gym to re-energize.

This villa accommodates scuba divers very well. Its easy acces to Andrea, one of the most beautiful dive spots of the Island allows you to walk from the back yard right into the ocean. Rinse off under the pool shower and use the dive locker to rinse and store your gear.

A generator will make sure that the occasional power interruption on Bonaire won't effect your stay.

Pure Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Mariposa with three couples. The accomodations are gorgeous, the three bedrooms all had king beds with on-suites. The home was nicely appointed and very spacious, we never felt crowded and were able to find plenty of space if you wanted to be alone. The dive locker room was also spacious and included a rinse area and plenty of hanging space for all our scuba gear. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the large pool was so inviting after a day of diving. The dive site Andrea II is just off the property, which makes for a great first dive to check your equipment. Wifi was included too. Karoline met us upon arrival for a quick tour and left some wonderful snacks to get us started. We will definitely be back to Villa Mariposa for our next trip to Bonaire (this was our 10th plus trip).

Beautiful Villa, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Mariposa is a very spacious well appointed villa. The level of finish in the house is top notch including appliances, plumbing fixtures, stone flooring and vaulted beamed ceilings. There is adequate wifi and the owner provided a local cell phone which was very convenient. There is a dive gear wash and hanging area which is secured and well laid out.

The villa has a great pool area with wood plank decking. At the end of the deck toward the ocean there is a canvass shade over a couple of chaise longs with a beautiful view of the horizon. There is a locking gate that leads a staircase down to the ocean where you can jump in for excellent snorkeling or diving.

The house is located right next to Andrea I and Andrea II dive sites that are easy entry shore dives. The house is in an exclusive neighborhood that feels very secure. It is north of town by about a 10 minute drive which is very convenient. Dive Friends has a location just about 10 minutes drive away.

The house was as described in the listing and was clean and comfortable. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in Villa Mariposa and we had a wonderful time. We had a warm welcome by Karoline, some groceries in the fridge and all the information we needed. The house was more than we expected, very comfortable, more space than we needed but not too big.

The pool is very big, the garden beautiful and the snorkeling right in front of the house is great at one of the most beautiful diving spots of the island. We watched some beautiful sunsets at the small terrace on the back of the garden. We hope to visit this paradise next year!

Fantastic villa, fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Villa Mariposa and it was even better than our first wonderful trip. We spent much more time hanging out at this wonderful Villa and it made this trip that much better.

Karoline's attention to detail and concern over nearly every aspect of her guests' stay contribute heavily to such a wonderful vacation.

She was very accommodating with all of our requests and went above and beyond on many occasions.

The snorkeling right in front of the house is remarkable, and nothing beats lounging next to the pool and then strolling down to watch the sunset.

There is just nothing not to love about this Villa: The kitchen, outdoor living space, huge pool and large ensuite bedrooms are all exceptional.

Can't wait to go back!!!

Exceptional Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mariposa is a wonderful example of an island vacation home. Many times pictures do not show the true condition of a home. Not the case with Villa Mariposa, the home goes beyond the pictures. The home is spacious, spotless, well appointed and a great example of modern décor with an island flair. The view from the front door to the water beyond the property is very pretty. The master bedroom and bath are spacious and very well done. The constant breeze from the front door to back cools the main living area down quickly after a day of sightseeing. The pool is spacious and the area around is very neatly done and a great way to relax. We enjoyed the daily goats visiting the pool for their daily drink of water. The flocks of parrots that flew by and rested in the trees off the back of the property were wonderful to see. You can get anywhere on the island from Villa Mariposa in reasonable time. Supermarkets have anything you may need. We cooked a few nights and the kitchen has everything we needed to make dinner easy and enjoyable. Karoline – Manager/Owner is a most gracious hostess. She surprised us with a few grocery items upon our arrival – which was most appreciated. There are great restaurants within a 10 minute drive from the home. Thank you Karoline for allowing us to spend time at Villa Mariposa and hope to return to Bonaire again.

Fantastic vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful pictures of this house simply don't do it justice.

We arrived for an 8 day Bonaire trip and our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time at the property. The kitchen and bedrooms were spacious and well appointed. The outdoor living space is amazing and comfortable. There are very few pools this size in Bonaire which is great for all after a day in the ocean. And the snorkeling (Andrea 1) right in front of the house is excellent. In addition to a ton of fish and coral, our last day they we saw a mom and baby turtle!

Karoline was a wonderful attentive host who made sure all was taken care of.
