Mariposa


Description


Welcome to Mariposa, an idyllic Antiguan villa on the exclusive Jumby Bay island.

This luxurious nine-bedroomed property is beautifully designed over a 10-acre coastal site. Mariposa is a spacious Caribbean home with a large infinity pool overlooking the beautiful Buckley Bay. This Jumby Bay estate combines indoor and outdoor living, restful bedrooms, and fun amenities.

Each day, guests can gather for a beautiful alfresco breakfast prepared and served by Mariposa's professional staff. A sea swim or dip in the pool can set the tone for a day of splendid relaxation. Active guests longing for competitive action can hit the courts (tennis and basketball) for a fun workout. The wonderful croquet lawn is only a short stroll from the pool terrace, perfect for a more sedate game.

The tennis court has a pavilion providing a shaded space for the players' fans to relax with a cool beverage and watch the daily grand slams. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy sharpening their putting skills on the 9-hole putting course. So much to do!

The wide blue ocean is like a magnet for guests. A private beach is perfect for swimming. If you book a speed boat as an add-on for your Antiguan getaway, you can weigh anchor off your private dock and tour Jumby Bay island by water. There are wonderful off-shore reef systems, too, perfect for snorkeling.

Mariposa's nine bedrooms are distributed across the property, with some rooms nicely grouped to allow parents and younger guests to sleep near one another and, conversely, self-contained spaces to give couples an added sense of privacy. The main living room/dining room bungalow is connected to each of the sleeping quarters by paved paths that weave through the lush, manicured gardens.

The main living and dining spaces have unimpeded views over the pool to the sea. There is a lovely firepit and terrace adjacent to the dining room. A great place to gather for memorable and celebratory dinners each evening.

The Island of Antigua is a stunning Caribbean destination for discerning guests, and the private island paradise of Jumby Bay is a quick 10-minute transfer by the Resort's catamaran.

Set over 300 acres of tropical terrain, Jumby Bay has developed a beautifully curated vacation experience for guests longing to effortlessly relax, play, and live while supported by the friendly and helpful Resort staff.

The stately Estate House is one of the key points for guests, as are restaurants, bars, a beach club, and water sports centers. Casual barefoot lunches, pool-side cocktails, celebratory dinners, wine tasting, snorkeling, kayaking, spa services, and socializing are readily available, and guests can join whatever might appeal. There are wonderful kids’ programs for younger guests who might like a social aspect to their vacation.

In addition to the memorable dining that you will enjoy courtesy of Mariposa's chef, there are many wonderful dining destinations on Jumby Bay. The Estate House's private rooms are a great option for a special event. Beach dining on Caribbean snacks at Genny's Bar, a thatched beach bungalow, feels authentic. All-day dining on The Veranda, which is the go-to place for the legendary White Night Beach Barbecue Party, is divine. The beach club's Pool Grille Bar has wonderful service and photo-worthy views across the Island's sand spit.

The Island produces most of its organic fruit and vegetables. Visit The Farm to see how Jumby Bay promotes a sustainable and healthy plan. The Farm is also the place to sign up for cookery lessons, a great way to update your culinary skills and add a luscious Caribbean recipe to your repertoire.

For a more grown-up experience, 1830 is a stylish destination bar in the elegant plantation house. Dark woods and rattan interiors call to mind an old-world charm and create a cozy and romantic setting for guests.

For water-based fun, head to 22 Knots, Jumby Bay's water center, where water toys, snorkeling, diving, windsurfing, wakeboarding, and accredited sailing lessons are just some of the activities on the menu.

Day trips from Jumby Bay can be a lot of fun, too. A trip to the mainland is great for shopping and historic tours. After a fun day in Antigua, you will adore returning to the car-free bliss of Jumby Bay, where the pace of life immediately slows down.

Life at Mariposa is a heavenly combination of peaceful relaxation and friendly fun. It combines action and rejuvenation, peaceful contemplation, and joyful gatherings. This sublime Caribbean Villa is the epitome of stylish 21st-century travel, winning the hearts and minds of all who enter the magical world of Mariposa!
