Mario's Pad, also named PipeHouse, is the house where Mario lives in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, serving as the location's in-game debut, as well as within the overall Mario franchise. In most other appearances, it is named either Mario's House or the Mario Bros.'s House, with the latter name taking into account that most appearances also have Luigi living in the house.

Prior to appearing in the games, Mario's Pad was first mentioned in the Atari 2600 manual for Mario Bros., and made a physical appearance in some Club Nintendo comics. Since debuting in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario's Pad has made some reappearances in some other Mario titles, most notably other role-playing games such as the Paper Mario series and Mario & Luigi series.

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario's Pad is in a small forested area, and is connected to Vista Hill to the west and Mushroom Way to the east. The front of Mario's Pad has a sign reading "PipeHouse." The interior of the house is a single room with a bed, a Fungi Light, a cuckoo clock, and a change of clothes hanging on the wall. Outside, several large wrenches are hanging up on the side of the house. Additionally, the house has a huge pipe sticking out of the roof. In fact, Mario falls through this pipe after Exor crashes into Bowser's Keep. Toad, who was waiting for Mario and Princess Toadstool outside, rushes into Mario's Pad. However, instead of helping Mario, Toad quips, "Lots of people use something called a 'door' to go in and out of their houses." Dry Bones of the 3 Musty Fears hides his flag under Mario's bed.
