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!

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.

Wonderful Vacation Home

Date of Stay:

This house is all that is advertised and then some! The owners provide many extras that made our vacation more comfortable. The house is spacious, as we had 7 adults there and felt like everyone had their own space. The pool and spa are wonderful. The weather was very warm when we were there in late December and we soaked in the sun and the warmth. We spent our days at the beach and our evenings in and around the spa. The kitchen is well equipped, with many appliances. The owners also provide many items to use to make your day at the beach easier; a beach wagon, beach chairs, a cooler, etc. The owners were very quick to respond to our emails and calls providing us with much detailed information about the Naples area. We had a wonderful Christmas vacation in Naples!

Excellent Accommodations, Great Location

Date of Stay:

This is one of the few places where the real accommodations meet or exceed the expectation set by the professional photos and description on the website. Incredibly clean, well appointed, comfortable beds and bedding, awesome private pool, etc. The place is far better equipped than any rental property we've stayed in. The location is close to downtown, but totally secluded, quiet and private. The entire property is clean and the expansive grounds are well groomed with abundant fruit trees.

Very nice home, great experience

Date of Stay:

The home was very clean and well appointed. We were a party of 5 adults and two children and we never once felt crowded. The kids loved the pool and large yard. The owner was extremely responsive to our questions while we were there. The garage/game room was a huge hit with everyone and was well stocked with beach chairs, toys, and games. We all enjoyed our stay here and we will absolutely be back in the future.

My whole family wanted to stay together while in Naples for my son's wedding and this house was so perfect!! It had large rooms, large kitchen, living and pool areas.

Thank-you so much for an incredible 4 days. I could live here.

It even has a trampoline!! My mother didn't get out of the Jacuzzi and my sister only to jump in the pool. This place has a huge yard and LOTS of room to spread out in the house and around the pool deck. We had a wedding rehearsal dinner for 30 with room to invite another 50. It was spotless when we arrived and the owner responded quickly to every question. I have already recommended this property and I'm keeping the listing close by.

Couldn't ask for more!

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed the pool, spa & beautiful home. Couldn't ask for more.

Fabulous villa gorgeous pool perfect in every way

Date of Stay:

We were fortunate enough to stay in Michael & Rikke's gorgeous home in Naples earlier this month. The house has absolutely everything that you could possibly need, and more. The furnishings were modern and extremely comfortable, after a long hard day sunbathing, shopping and eating, we chilled out most evenings in the lounge with a bottle of wine (so much better than staying in a hotel). The pool area is one of the largest we have come across, we got the sun all day from 9am however there is plenty of shade when you've had enough. Location is excellent, very quiet area with Walmart etc within a few minutes drive. Ten minute drive into Naples itself, with lots of nice shops and restaurants. Thirty minutes from Outlets (dreading credit card bill arriving!). You will not be disappointed, perfect for a family vacation, we will certainly be staying hear when we next visit Naples.

Perfect house for relaxing holidays

Date of Stay:

the property is very nice and the owners are very helpful and friendly. we spent 9 beautiful and happy days in this house and we are sure we will come back

Beautiful

Date of Stay:

Spacious, open, clean, family-friendly…these are just a few words to describe this property. Michael was wonderful to work with and came to our assistance immediately with the two minor issues we had. The property is somewhat secluded, but yet close enough to drive to anything we wanted plus, with the pool area at the house, we didn't want to leave too often anyway! It was a great two weeks!

A great family vacation!

Date of Stay:

Our family of four, plus our dog had a wonderful two-week vacation. The house has everything you could want... a home away from home. The house and natural surroundings of the grounds are beautiful. Close to all amenities, a fully fenced-in yard with flowers, fruit and palm trees, singing birds, screened lanai and lots of room to play and enjoy the property (inside and outside). Did we mentioned - you'll want to spend all your time in the pool! Thank you to the owners, Michael and Rikke, they were great hosts throughout the process. A fun, memorable vacation by all!

Absolutely Stunning!

Date of Stay:

We loved everything about this home! It was beautiful, very well equipped, and close to the beach! It was everything it was described to be! The property was very well landscaped with many citrus & fruit trees. My family was overall impressed with the pool & lanai area. It was very well laid out with a central hang out area as well as a very large comfortable living room. There were more games than a family could choose to play and plenty of other things to do on the property for entertainment! We would very much like to stay at this property again in the future and will definitely recommend it to others.

Lovely spacious house with great jacuzzi and pool

Date of Stay:

This is a lovely spacious family home in a quiet residential area. The jacuzzi was a lovely place to unwind after a busy day out exploring the area. The kitchen is large and well equipped - it's a nice touch that some food items are left for the guests in the cupboard and fridge. There was lots of space for 8 people. The owner has just finished a fire pit in the garden as an extra feature.

Pictures are worth a 1000 words...

Date of Stay:

But don't describe the value! This home has a nicely appointed kitchen, Bose system, and a Lanai to unwind while preparing a home cooked meal, after a day at the beach. Centrally located, I'm a cyclist so I was able to explore a 40 mile circuit of historic downtown Naples, the beaches, Royal Harbor, and able to take back roads from the home. This is an ideal location for someone who wants to enjoy all of Naples. Close enough to find commodity shopping like Trader Joes, Publix, and Walmart if you need to pick up a few staples for entertaining, but secluded and safely tucked away in a nice neighborhood.

Beautiful home, spacious, clean and very private

Date of Stay:

A beautiful home very close to the centre of Naples and its gorgeous beaches, yet very secluded and quiet. Has everything you could want from pool toys to condiments! Nicely laid out and spacious bedrooms with a lovely kitchen area being the focal point of inside. Outside the pool area is large in comparison to other rentals we have had. Lots of room to move around with the suns movements during the day! Gardens are well maintained with a volleyball net and trampoline plus a basketball post in the front yard which proved popular with adults and children alike. Loved having electronic gates at the entrance. Lots of wildlife in the garden which is really lovely to see. Master bedroom was very comfortable, and the children enjoyed having their own space on the other sided of the house. Naples pier only took just over 5 minutes to drive to, along with 5th and 3rd avenue with its stunning shops and restaurants. Other beaches nearby and not far from Marco Island either. Plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and take-away places within a short drive too. Communication with the owners was fantastic from our initial enquiry and all the way through. Would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for an 'away from it all' break with all the comforts of home plus an added bit of luxury. Thank you Michael and Rikke.

Large family home with super pool and deck

Date of Stay:

We all really enjoyed our week at this nicely styled family home. The home has lots of amenities from the well equipped kitchen to the fabulous pool deck. As we have young children, we also liked the configuration of the bedrooms and the plentiful supply of toys, games, DVDs, Wii games for our 5, 7 & 10 year olds. Will come back here next time we are in Naples and will recommend to family & friends.

Great home for our family vacation

Date of Stay:

Home was very accommodating for our family vacation and very spacious. Enjoyed all the amenities provided. Pool and hot tub were very nice. Somewhat secluded off of the road with secure gate and a lot of room outside in the yard. Would definitely recommend this property for others to rent for a getaway for a vacation.

March 2014, our months stay

Date of Stay:

This gated home is on a large lot and fairly secluded. Lots of trees and flowers helping to keep it's tropical feel. In our month's stay, while at the home, my husband and I spent a great deal of time outside around the lovely pool. Meals prepared in, were enjoyed at the table, poolside. With the weather snowy back in our hometown, we wanted to be outside! You'll find the home quite spacious and well equipped. Great if you have children as there are toys, books, movies and games of all ages available. Pool toys, too. Loved our stay!

Wonderful place to stay in Naples

Date of Stay:

The home was very nice and had everything you might need. Perfect home and yard with a dog and the owners were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again or recommend to others.

Amazing vacation getaway!

Date of Stay:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. The home was wonderfully clean and inviting. There was ample space to enjoy. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The pool and hot tub was a welcome retreat after a busy day of site seeing. We enjoyed being able to walk the large property and pick fruit from the citrus and papaya trees. When all else fails impromptu basketball games or ping pong tournaments can be enjoyed with the many on site activities. Rikke was a pleasure to deal with, so very accommodating and always very prompt with responses to any questions, thanks for making our vacation a memorable one, we'll definitely be back.

Fantastic, family friendly, spacious

Date of Stay:

We had a fantastic stay at this well-equipped house, clean, perfect and awesome house. We were so happy to find the house as lovely as depicted in the photos and even larger than assumed. It was so comfortable that we considered never leaving. Lots of light, space and beauty. It was also equipped with everything you need and even extras that make life a lot easier when you travel from overseas. Lots of water toys and toys inside made the holiday perfect for our children. Loved our stay. Location was perfect. Everything was great! Thanks for sharing this wonderful house with us - we would love to come back !

Lovely spacious home with great pool and Jacuzzi

Date of Stay:

This home had everything that you could possible need, spacious pool, jacuzzi, bikes etc. We even made fresh orange juice from the orange tree on the side of house. It tasted great. The location is excellant to downtown Naples. Wonderful shops and great places for dining. We are down here for the month with my Husband and our dog Champ. The yard is very big, so we played ball with Champ everyday. The owner, Michael was very nice and receptive to any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend and hopefully we will be back soon. I loved Naples.

Mijn familie heeft dit prachtige huis in Naples.

Date of Stay:

Mijn familie heeft dit prachtige huis in Naples in de kerstvakantie gehuurd en we hebben een toptijd gehad. Het huis is nog ruimer dan de foto's laten zien en de inrichting is modern. Er zijn veel activiteiten voor de kinderen waaronder Wii games, een trampoline, schommels, basketbal, volleyball, gazon spelletjes en natuurlijk het fantastische zwembad met terras. We zullen graag terugkomen en ik raad dit huis aan iedereen aan! Joost, NL.

Fantastic pool house

Date of Stay:

Very nice and well equipped house. The kitchen have all you need and more even a stick to make mojhito! The rooms are very nice, the masterbedroom huge. The pool and lanai were where we spend most of our time and in the evening in the hottub. The owner answer all quistions very quickly when you write during your stay. Overall a very good house, which we highly recommend and we will be back some day.

Winter Rental Home in Naples, FL

Date of Stay:

This large 4 bedroom home was as advertised. It includes two living areas, two inside eating areas and a well-equipped, very functional kitchen. The 1300 square foot lanai with pool was amazing! It was well furnished with chairs and tables, and we ate most of our means on the lanai. It worked out very well for our family of six. We each had our own room and only three of the occupants had to share a bathroom. The house was immaculately clean, with fresh flowers and a welcome basket - an unexpected treat! The house is very close to the Naples Pier, with the Gulf beaches, and to the famous Fifth Street, with all it's fine restaurants and eclectic shops. It is also only a 45 minute drive to Everglades City which offers Air Boat rides through the Everglades. We even held an Alligator! Grocery stores are a only minutes away by car and easy to locate. Our communication with the owners was very good. Their directions to the house from Ft. Myers airport were easy to follow. The large yard accommodated individuals who wanted to enjoy a good book under the palm trees. The landscaping contributed to our enjoyment of the house. It was the perfect way for "northerners" to enjoy a warm Christmas. I highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Perfect house for the perfect vacation

Date of Stay:

We, a party of seven adults and two children really enjoyed our stay at Rikkes and Michaels place. Michael came the first night and welcomed us. All the bedroom was large and the master bedroom was huge! The kitchen is fully equipped and there was everything we could possibly need. We used the kitchen daily and we never felt that we were missing something. Best of all was the pool and Jacuzzi. The pool is large and the jacuzzi was good temperature. We all appreciated our stay in 'Casa de Mariposa' and we will gladly return next year.

Fantastic place!

Date of Stay:

Un endroit extraordinaire. Nous avons passé 1 semaine de rêve. C'est très bien situé, nous allions à la plage chaque jour et avons profité des beaux couchers du soleil sur le 'pier'. Fameux! Nous avions des bébés avec nous et les propriétaires nous ont facilité le séjour avec chaise haute et couchette. Du grand service. La villa est spacieuse, propre et calme, rien ne manque. On a adoré la piscine et le spa. Thank you Rikke and Michael. We hope to come back and we recommend your property to everybody.

Fantastic Home!!

Date of Stay:

The house was beautiful! It has everything we want in a home. The pool and hot tub was the perfect size and we enjoyed it every day! It was sunny and warm every day which made it perfect. The home is very spacious, which we like. We have stayed at different homes in Florida since we are planning on moving to Florida in the future. This was by far the nicest home we had stayed in. We definately will want to stay here again if available on our next trip. Michael and Rikki definately make sure we had everything. The house very clean. Very safe neighborhood. Thanks again for sharing your home!!

Super home - up there on top of our familie list.

Date of Stay:

We are a familie from France who have stayed at many vacation homes but I can say without hesitation that this is at the top of my list. The home is very modern and comfortable, the children had many things to keep their attention; for example the pool area, swings, garden games, DVDs, bicycles and trampoline Very personable follow-up and interaction with the friendly owners.

Very Nice Stay!

Date of Stay:

We had a very nice stay. Enjoyed the pool, spa and lanai area and excellent October weather. We would very much like to return to this property.

Ein zu Hause weg von zu Hause - ein Traumurlaub

Date of Stay:

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit um uns in Naples hier total entspannen zu können. Vielen Dank dass ihr euer Haus uns zur Verfügung gestellt habt.Das Haus ist noch viel schöner als die Bilder zeigen. Meine Familie und Kinder haben besonders den Pool Bereich im sonnigen Florida geniessen können. Wir haben uns sehr entspannen können und eine wundervolle Zeit mit den Kindern am Pool verbracht und auch viele Spiele aus eurer Sammlung gespielt (die wir jetzt daheim auch kaufen werden). Vor allem die Kinder fanden es Einzigartig einen eigenen privaten Pool haben zu können. Wir sind auch ein paar Mal zu den umliegenden Golfplätzen gefahren und konnten sehr günstig einige schöne Runden Golf spielen. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und die Inhaber waren immer erreichbar, haben sich um alles gekümmert und uns Empfehlungen in Naples und der Umgebung gegeben und Fragen schnell beantwortet. Das Haus war sehr sauber und in einwandfreiem Zustand. Die große Küche hat alle Geräte und alles was man benötigt. (Sogar einen typischen Amerikanischen Kühlschrank mit Wasser und Eis Ausschank). Es gibt nichts was bei diesem Aufenthalt gefehlt hat und wir werden sicherlich noch mal kommen und der nächste Urlaub ist schon in Planung. Einen ganz lieben Dank an die Besitzer. Thomas, München/Deutschland

Perfect home in Naples

Date of Stay:

My family and I had a fabulous week celebrating our wedding anniversary at this beautiful home in Naples. My husband and children certainly enjoyed all the outdoor games and pursuits in the large landscaped gardens whilst my preference was to just relax in the tres comfortable pool area soaking in the Florida sun. The villa was exceptionally clean, well maintained and I must say tastefully decorated in a modern and functional way. The design of the home is excellent, especially for entertaining as the focal point is the kitchen area and pool area with the sliding doors opening for easy access to the outside lanai area. We really felt at home in this place that I would recommend to any potential visitor to the area. We found the owner Michael very accomodating and easy to work with from start to finish - he was genuinely concerned that all went well which it did! Merci beaucoup...we'll be back, we all hope soon. Lucy Astrid, Montreal, Canada.

Highly recommended vacation home

Date of Stay:

We spent 1 week in this wonderful vacation home. We loved the open floor plan, spacious interior and high ceilings with the focal point being the pool deck. The beds were very comfortable and the beach towels and pool games made our time in the pool great. The kitchen was well equipped with all the necessary pots, pans, dishes, and utensils and the layout was excellent for the cook. Having the washer and dryer available meant we could keep the beach towels clean and fresh and not have dirty clothes when we got home. The back yard is fully fenced making it very quiet and secluded with abundant fruit trees and palms. The screened lanai has very comfortable seating and is a great place to relax with coffee in the morning or ice tea or a cocktail in the evening. The pool & spa was fantastic and very enjoyable. The landscaping is lush and puts you in that “tropical state of mind”. The Wi-Fi was wonderful for those of us who can’t do without technology, even when enjoying a nice quite evening on the lanai. It was great having a garage for our car. The garage accommodated our car and the two bikes that were available. We enjoyed early morning and late afternoon rides in the neighborhood and rode over to Port Royal /Royal Harbor several times and used beach access at the various car parks just north of Naples Pier to swim in the Gulf. This is our first time to Southwest Florida and we just love Naples. Now we have a vacation home that we would definitely recommend to anyone. Rikke & Michael are very easy to work with and will respond promptly if you have questions. Their home is lovely and and it will certainly make you feel welcome.

Spacious home with good layout

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed our stay at this holiday home. Very spacious with a nice centralized kitchen and pool area as the family "get together area" - the home was clean and well kept. Shopping and restaurants within a short range of driving. Received good customer service and prompt answers to the few questions we had.

Really nice!

Date of Stay:

The house layout is perfect, the kids enjoyed the pool and the big home theater area. We were a group of 10 people and the house is big enough to never feel cramped. Thanks again for all your help and assistance during our vacation.

Fantastic outdoor area with pool and hot tub!

Date of Stay:

Thank you Michael for a wonderful week in your beautiful house. We had such a great time and the house was so well equipped that we hardly left the house/ pool!! We will definitely be back.

Amazing Holiday Home

Date of Stay:

We loved your place in sunny Naples and to be honest, it was such a drag to leave to go back to dreary England - nonetheless, can't wait to return! There's been a lot of thought put into the design and layout of the villa with all views facing the large lanai with inviting pool & spa. You have also tastefully furnished and decorated the entire home, which is a cut above other homes we've stayed in before. Close to 5th Av and Gulf beaches which is handy. We liked the ample space not only inside but outside too with the huge well maintained tropical gardens outside where we did everything from playing badminton to picking fresh limes and mint for our mojitos. Talking sports, also liked that Fox Soccer Channel was available so I could watch Premier League Football...cheers for that! Dead certain to come back, asap. Thanks for an enjoyable holiday. David Duckworth from Devon, England.

Spacious and comfortable home away from home.

Date of Stay:

This home is spacious, comfortable and really well laid out - a real joy to stay here! The pool deck got sun all day long and the hot tub was fun in the evenings. All the furnishings and décor were nice as well. Thank-you Rikke for the attention you gave us pre, during and after our visit - it REALLY does make a difference to have someone so knowledgeable and local to assist. Can't wait to return. Emily - Nottingham, England.
