This house is immaculate. From the beautifully landscaped yard to the Modern Golden Girls interior design, you will feel every bit relaxed in this Delray Oasis. We never left. My family and I had such a wonderful time. We drove up from Miami for Labor day weekend/birthday fun. We could not get enough of the salt water pool. It's incredibly relaxing and way more healthy for your skin/hair/body. The yard is so beautiful and you get a chance to see chubyy lizards, squirrels and colorful birds scurry about. After a long day of BBQ'ing and relaxing by the pool, you will not be disappointed with how comfortable a nights sleep you'll get in the beds. Everyone in my fam commented on what a great sleep they got. Delray is an awesome city. They have great eateries, Pinball museum, Morikami Gardens and ,of course, the beach. But we didn't do any of it because Mariposa has it all! The flow of the living area was perfect for game night and Karaoke. We also sat through a couple of Harry Potter Movies on Sunday night after cooking a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. I look forward to returning to this house. We brought 4 cars and they fit with a little finessing. Any more than that would probably not be able to accommodate. Oh my gosh, come to Delray and stay in this place! It will not disappoint.- Yislin C. from Miami, Posted: 09/09/2021
This was our last family vacation before both of our daughters are in college, and our 3rd time visiting Delray as a family. Each time we have stayed in a a different house and each time the house was in a different location. We loved the location of being so close to the water! The house was very clean and very spacious. The only downside is the largest bedroom which is the most private, has no bathroom close...but we knew this going in...there is no true master. My husband and I chose this room for privacy and space and just made the trek to the bathrooms a the front of the house. The outdoor space was very relaxing and private. And as always we enjoyed being in the downtowner district! Great house for the price and location!- Mary B. from Charleston, Posted: 08/14/2018
We loved this house. It was accurately described. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, pans, and appliances. The back yard is beautiful. The only reason for the rating of 4 stars instead of 5 is that the pool was too cold to enjoy. The management team was very responsive and easy to work with. Delray was a great location for our family reunion. We had several divers in the group and they raved about their diving experiences with Starfish Scuba. We hope to come back!- Anonymous from Edmond, Posted: 01/02/2017
My family and I had a memorial time . Highly recommend this house for a family vacation .- Maritza I. from Franklin Lakes , Posted: 12/15/2020
House and yard are beautiful as pictured. Furnishings nice and kitchen well equipped. Location is good. Pet friendly.
Some minor exterior issues were dealt with quickly, However,exterior lighting issues identified and not fixed and because of this we could not use pool at night because of this.
Batbrooms not ideal for 4 bdrm house with one bath accessible only thru twin bedrm. Shold consider adding at least half bath in hallway leading to rear bdrm.
Overall, still a beautiful home and relaxing stay.- Anonymous from Joliet , Posted: 04/08/2017
My family and I had a wonderful time at Mariposa. We loved the tropical landscaping and pool. The house was well stocked with everything we needed to enjoy the kitchen, pool, and beach. There was lot's of room inside to spread out and enjoy ourselves. I will come back again.- Jeffrey C. from St. Petersburg, Posted: 05/12/2019
We stayed here while my daughter was in a tennis tournament in delray. It was perfectly located, quiet and comfortable.- Stephanie M. from Largo , Posted: 10/28/2020
This property, located only about a mile away from downtown Delray, was the perfect home away from home for us. We spent a week at the house and enjoyed every minute. The property is completely landscaped with beautiful tropical and the pool area was sunny and open but still quite private. The house was clean and cool and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to host a wonderful dinner party for 10. Kate, Kathleen, and Ivonne were fantastic and handled all our needs with immediate attention. There is no doubt we would stay here again.- Jason L. from North Palm Beach, Posted: 05/27/2017
What a lovely retreat. Perfect for our family get together- ages 8 months to mid-70s.
The pool area was the prettiest we have seen (and we've rented many vacation homes in Florida). The house was comfy, well stocked, spacious and very clean. And the property management company was top notch. The BBQ failed us on the first night and they had a brand new on at the ready! A+++- arline k. from Wellesley, Posted: 04/11/2019
My family was in town visiting my sister and her family, and I must say, we all enjoyed this absolutely incredible home! Impeccably clean and well-maintained. From the moment you walk into this house you are overwhelmed with the attention to detail. All of the furnishings are comfortable and well laid out - lots of space to watch TV, space to read, space to talk and space to have quiet. The pool area is amazing. Nice areas for lounging by the pool or to dine outdoors --- and the landscape -- Wow! This home is secluded in a very quiet neighborhood but also very close to Atlantic Ave. stores and restaurants. Yvonne was wonderful to deal with, we had a minor issue with the vacuum and she came right away and replaced it. My sister, who isn't easily impressed said she plans to have all our future family get togethers here at Mariposa house!- Tim R. , Posted: 07/11/2016
Mariposa was an A+! We came to Delray Beach for a girls' weekend and it was perfect! The house was very clean, comfortable and spacious and in a great location. Loved the pool. Very relaxing and beautifully landscaped. Your own backyard paradise! The outdoor shower was a hit with our group. Having beach towels and beach chairs provided for us was a nice convenience. The beds and bedding were extremely comfortable and it was wonderful having so many bathrooms for a houseful of ladies! Yvonne with Vacation Living was extremely friendly and helpful with suggesting dining, shopping and other activities. The welcome basket with snacks and wine was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave!- Anonymous from Davidsonville, Posted: 11/14/2018
The house exceeded our expectations and was absolutely perfect for our trip. The backyard was an oasis and the perfect place to hang by the pool! We grilled, relaxed, swam, and had the best time. The house was impeccably clean, spacious, and had lots of
sweet little extras. The managers got back to my emails right away and were SUPER helpful. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!- Nicole F. , Posted: 05/10/2017
Great place for a large family to stay. Completely private pool, lots of shade, large kitchen, plenty of places inside and out to hang out. House had everything. One small negative, the air-handler in small bedroom was noisy.- Anonymous from Lynchburg, Posted: 10/02/2019
This was absolutely the best vacation rental ever! We really love the town of Delray and this home is well situated both to the town and beach. Both are about a mile away, We walked to both most of the time. The house is lovely it is in a neighborhood with other homes but once you enter the front gate you feel like you have entered your own little oasis. The living room in the back is so lovely, filled with windows and light opening up to the backyard pool area that is so beautiful and lush with trees, plants and flowers. The house is really well equipped as well. We plan on going back!- lisa t. from New York, Posted: 05/12/2019
We loved the house!!!! It had everything we needed and more...was in immaculate condition! Close enough to walked to shops and restaurants on Atlantic Ave. which was a big plus for us! Property manager checked in with us to make sure everything was ok...very impressive. Will stay again when visiting the Delray Beach area!- Cheryl S. from Hudson, Posted: 11/20/2019
We had a great stay. The house was perfect for our extended family. Clean and well appointed.- Kay A. from San Rafael, Posted: 11/26/2019
Fabulous stay! If we weren't moving to Florida we would book every year again. Yvonne is fantastic!!- Anonymous from Basking Ridge, Posted: 04/11/2019
Grate Place- Lonnie B. from Ringgold, Posted: 06/20/2021
Lovely setting within a short drive to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed the private pool area and all the amenities the home offered. We were comfortable and relaxed here!- Tamara C. from Menomonee Falls, Posted: 04/03/2019
The accommodations were very comfortable and the property was beautiful! Our only suggestion would be labeling all of the light switches as it took us a while to figure out what went to what, also the central bathroom with the shower was great but it is very dark in there with the light on. Otherwise our stay was seamless and perfect. Thank you for providing the basket of treats which we tore into, the list of close grocery stores, the info binder, and thank you for having everything so clean and fresh for us. We had a wonderful weekend!
- Alixandra P. from Philadelphia , Posted: 11/02/2016
The place was the perfect spot for our company retreat and we all had a great time. it was spacious and large enough that there was enough room for everyone. The pool and BBQ made a great hangout at night.
I do wish it had better lighting. It's quite dark during the daytime and no ceiling lights to brighten it up.- Chris B. from Delray Beach, Posted: 10/29/2018
The pictures accurately represent the property. We were a family of 7 adults with one small child. The host graciously provided a Pac and Play and a booster chair. You will not be disappointed.- Mary F. from Topeka, Posted: 01/06/2018
We needed a much deserved break from work, and we are so glad we picked the perfect place! I loved lounging by the pool. My friends joined us for a few days, and brought their kids.... They were in heaven. The home was very well appointed. Everything we needed was there .... Even beach chairs and towels to take to the beach. Check in and out were a breeze (We arrived really late the first night). The management team was on it. They called to check up on us, and even told me where to check when I couldn't find the scissors. I wish we could have stayed longer. I can't wait to come back next year!- Mary S. from Brookfield, Posted: 08/02/2016
Everything about our stay was wonderful - convenient location, very clean, very comfortable, beautiful yard, quiet neighborhood, plenty of room for the 7 of us. The pictures are 100% accurate. We'd love to return! Thanks.- Anonymous from Buffalo, Posted: 12/07/2019
Mariposa was the location we chose to gather and celebrate our Dads 90th Birthday. The property did not disappoint. Lots of room inside and out to relax and enjoy this tropical Floridian retreat.
The house is comfortably furnished, the kitchen well stocked should you choose to cook, and plenty of room outdoors to have your morning coffee and wine in the evening. Adults and kids all enjoyed the pool!
We did take a walk to the beach just to see how far it was. It's a nice walk, but you wouldn't want to do it carrying chairs, umbrellas and toting kids.
The Management team at VacationLiving was wonderful. They insured all our requests were met and when we had small issues with the property, (pool heater, outdoor lighting) they had someone there immmediately to fix the problems.
It was a wonderful stay and would love to celebrate his 91st here again next year!
- Cindy S. from Lake Forest, Posted: 05/03/2017
The house and location were great. Backyard truly peaceful. Layout was fine although one bedroom was isolated from the others . There were 2 bathrooms although one was inside a bedroom . had to do lots of looking for kitchen utensils perhaps they should mark all the drawers. . We used the barbecue but only after scrubbing it . Overall we would stay there again . Except for barbecue the house was very clean. Management company was great to work with .- Susan K. from Charlevoix, Posted: 04/26/2017
Mariposa was perfect for our family group of 7 adults. Everything we needed was provided including lots of towels. Plenty of seating Inside. The kitchen is well stocked with every gadget you might need and lots of dishes, glasses etc. the welcome basket was a nice touch. Pool area is wonderful and lots of shaded seating is available. Local property manager was readily available (only needed her because of threat of hurricane approaching). Location is great, minutes away from beach and downtown Delray.- Michele M. , Posted: 09/18/2019
We enjoyed renting the house with a few friends/families and our young children for a friend's wedding in Delray over a long weekend. Great pool, sitting areas, appliances & accommodations with lots of utensils/supplies within the home for our use.- Anonymous from New York, Posted: 05/31/2017
Mariposa is a lovely, well appointed, comfortable, clean vacation rental. We hope to return someday. The only negative was the home could use better outside lighting.- Anonymous from Norwalk, Posted: 08/04/2019
We absolutely LOVED staying at Mariposa! The home was beautiful, spacious and neatly decorated. The grounds and outdoor pool and sitting areas were comfortable and relaxing. We loved walking, eating and having cocktails in downtown Delray Beach. We can't wait to visit again. WE would highly recommend staying at Mariposa!- amy b. from NORTHFIELD, Posted: 04/07/2018
We had a wonderful weekend at this Beautiful home! Just as advertised/
The house was so comfortable well equipped with all the needed amenities. The pool was just perfect!- Anonymous from Airmont, Posted: 06/30/2021
We had a wonderful vacation at Mariposa. This is the way to go if you want to hang out with your family on a vacation! We planned activities together and we did activities on our own. We were all at home together in the beautiful Mariposa home. We had a campfire on Christmas Eve and we enjoyed the pool. The support was excellent too. Our stroller had a flat tire and not having a stroller with two toddlers was cramping our style, but within hours after asking the property manager, she brought us a pump! I would stay here again, every year!- Kathi K. from Westland, Posted: 01/11/2021
The vacation house was a great idea and alot of fun. I was able to have my entire family stay in one place. the location was perfect and having a pool was an added bonus. The kitchen was well appointed and the beds comfortable and the bathrooms great. The only negative would be somewhat dark lighting in the front living room and dining area but luckily we had nice weather and this was not a problem in the daytime. The overall experience was great. Thanks- Jerry R. from Loveland, Posted: 04/12/2019
