Beautiful house !! Be aware though that it has become VERY close to the surf. We had ocean surf come all the way under our cars and had to move them

Love the location to the beach with this home. Other than a few items and minimal parking it was a very good stay!
Amanda M. Jul 2021
This is a really nice, clean, new home. We really appreciated the two king sized beds in first and second bedrooms along with the four bunks in the third bedroom. This home is laid out well as a vacation home; it has a large open floor plan with three bedrooms and two nice sized bathrooms. Perhaps even more delightful is that this one is right on the beach. If you're looking for a laid back vacation where you spend most of your time on the beach, this is a good option.

This home is listed to sleep 10 people, but it only has four beach chairs. If you have more than four people staying here, you'll want to bring your own.

The home has trash bags, laundry pods, and dishwasher pods, and but not enough were left for our seven day stay. We ended up having to go and buy more, which wasn't a big deal, just something to plan for.

The parking spaces are in the sand under the house, so be sure you have an all wheel drive vehicle otherwise you'll get stuck quickly.

New house, nice fixtures. The deck was a great place to hang out.

Our family enjoyed our 4-night stay at Nueva Mariposa! The kayak was a nice added bonus. There’s also a grill here which we were not aware of. The home is lovely.
Allie D. May 2021
My family and I had such a great time at Neuva Mariposa! We didn’t leave the house once, and that’s exactly the kind of trip we were looking for. So peaceful and right on the water. One thing to add. We didn’t know if there would be a grill at this place, but there is a propane grill for anyone else wondering!! We would love to stay here again!
Clint R. Mar 2021
The house was everything you could ask for. You are just steps away from the beach. The home owners made sure you have everything you need. We will definitely be back.
CAROLYN A. Feb 2021
The light in the house was wonderful!
Comfortable pillows and bedding - went home and ordered some for my bed. Kitchen was more than adequate with everything one needs. Spacious bedrooms and living room. Clean, great colors and decor. Modern
Loved how close to the water it was. Could hear surf, saw dolphins. Great beach for walking.
Melissa T. Feb 2021
It was perfect - everything about the house was perfect - can’t wait to go back next year - and this time for longer - thank you for everything
Haden F. Feb 2021
This house is very clean and beautifully decorated
We will defiantly be back

Loved our 5 nights on the island. House was spotless, well-equipped, and comfortable. Living room light switches/dimmers were a bit wonky, but it wasn't a big deal. Great view of the beach and surf. Quite a bit of construction going on in the area repairing damage from Sally & Zeta. Parking passes were provided and necessary to get through the construction checkpoint on Bienville.

DO NOT under any circumstances attempt to park up close to the house unless you 1) have a well-kitted 4x4 truck, or 2) just like paying for a wrecker to pull you out of the sand when you inadvertently bury your car in it trying to park closer. You may not have the luxury of a kind neighbor with a tow strap showing up at an extremely convenient moment. Stay on the hard-pack and you'll be fine.

the house was amazing..very well layed out and stocked with what I would expect a beach house to have, judging from the past homes I have stayed in. I was surprised to not find wine glasses since the deck was perfectly situated for sipping wine while watching the dolphins swim by, but other than that, the house itself was a great find.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home on the beach. It was well equipped and very comfortable. Even though dogs are allowed, the home showed no sign of any animals having been there. It was spotless.
Robert S. Dec 2020
I salute the architect, the construction team, the interior designer, and most of all the dog-loving owners and their perfect canine sensibilities. The best place we've ever stayed on the Gulf Coast.
LATA R. Dec 2020
We enjoyed our stay at Nueva Mariposa with its ideal beach location and awesome views of the Gulf. The home is beautiful and clean with plenty of room. The only minor issue we had was with the lockbox which we were unable to open with the code given to us. It got sorted out with a phone call and a new code. We had a very relaxing stay and hope to come back again soon.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing Nueva Mariposa for your Dauphin Island vacation getaway! Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found the location of the home to be ideal while visiting the area. Sorry to hear of the lockbox issue and thank you for your patience and understanding on that. We appreciate this review and feedback and look forward to hosting future stays!

We just got back from a week staying at Nueva Mariposa. It is a beautiful home on the island! Everything was very clean when we arrived. The kitchen was fully stocked with all dishes, pots, pans and appliances you need. We felt right at home. The beach was just a few steps away and our view was not blocked at all even though there is a house right in front of this house.
We did have one issue with the key pad/lock, but Vacasa was very responsive and helped via phone as well as had someone physically at the home within the hour.
We stayed through hurricane zeta and felt very safe in the house. We will be back!
Hamilton P. Oct 2020
Beautiful home, with lots of room! Perfect for large families. The house sits right on the beach with amazing views of the ocean!
Amy S. Oct 2020
We absolutely loved our stay!! It had everything we needed, the only that would of made it any better is if we could've stayed long!! Highly recommend, hopefully we can stay again in the future!
Calvin T. Oct 2020
Very nice house, very! Loved the paddle boards, but boy am I tired.
Kurt S. Oct 2020
Sadly, Hurricane Sally cut our trip short. Home is new and modern with small touches like USB outlets in bedrooms and kitchen. Plenty of seating if you fill the home with friends and family - this includes dining table and living room. The jack and jill bathroom for the other two bedrooms is a nice feature and has a separate door for the shower and toilet room. The photos were taken before the window blinds were added. We were really concerned that there would not be any. Internet and satellite worked great, though we only had a few mobile devices and our roku.

The view off the front porch is unobstructed by other homes, so you really are steps from the surf. As seen in the photos, there are some electrical lines that are seen. The other side of the home also gives access to the beach as well.

Do be aware that the recent storms have altered parking at the home. Currently, there is no parking beneath the home as sand has washed over it to such a degree that it would be impossible for anything less than 4wd with proper air down.

Owners are local and can help if needed. They gave us some details on the construction of the home that gave us complete confidence in the homes ability to battle water and wind. We have already rebooked for a future date.

We couldn't have asked for a better stay for our annual Labor Day vacation in Dauphin Island! This camp definitely felt like home to us and it's nestled perfectly by the beach. Will definitely book again!
David W. Aug 2020
The deck has a locking gate which is nice for toddlers. Nice appliances and has bright lights under the home.
leslie A. Aug 2020
the house is beautiful and charming comfortable and super clean and spacious it has everything you need to have a good time with your family. super nice beachfront access
Paul P. Aug 2020
Perfect location
Chris W. Aug 2020
It was absolutely perfect for our family! Comfortable beds and stocked kitchen with everything you need for cooking and staying in! Loved all the decor and location on the Island. The added bonus of the Kayak and Paddle-boards were so much fun! The only negative was the parking situation with the neighbors who were not understanding on where they needed to park and blocked the entrance to our house. Besides that it was a great trip and great home! Definitely will book again.

If you are reading these reviews and considering this house for a low-key family vacation, then look no further. This is the cleanest, nicest house our family has found at the beach. There is a house directly in front of this one, but the views from the huge wrap around deck are not obstructed and the ocean is steps away. The adults in our group could sit on the deck and watch the kids play in the sand. The house was spotless when we arrived (and I am picky), the furnishings and decor are nice and so cute, and there are many touches that make this house special. There is an amazing vanity mirror in one of the bathrooms and the other bathroom has huge double sinks and lots of shelving. The third bedroom is so fun for the kids with the bunk beds and bean bag. The big TVs in all the rooms were great too. The laundry room and kitchen are awesome and well supplied. The paddle boards and kayak were a super fun added bonus! I could go on and on about how pleased we were with this awesome house!

This is a really great house. We had had 5 kids under the age of 10 and 4 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone. It is set behind another house but the porches and layout take full advantage of the views yet gave you plenty of privacy. The other house is basically in the water so it is still a short walk to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked and the living room was plenty big enough for everyone as well.
