We rented Casa Ying Yang for one week at the beginging of June. Only four of us stayed at the property (ages 30, 33, 28, & 27) and I felt like the house was a little empty! This place could easily accomodate 8 people. The bedrooms were all very nice and the main living area was awesome with the slide...

We spent five nights at Mariposa Vacation Homes. Our family (kids ages 10, 8, and 6) rented Casa Iguana and friends rented the other two homes. This was a great set up and something I'd recommend if families are vacationing together. Two families rented Casa Ying Yang and that is where we all hung out. Casa Ying Yang is amazing!...

We stayed in Casa Iguana @ Mariposa in Santa Teresa on the first week of our Costa Rica journey. The house is very charming and met all our needs with only one exception. We are a party of 5, 3 guys and 2 girls with only one bathroom, but we made it work. Since we were on a family budget...

I was recently on vacation with some friends and stayed in Casa Yin Yang.

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
