  • Wonderful Getaway

    "Casa Tranquila was a wonderful place to stay for 5 nights. I work a ton and just needed to relax.....this was the perfect place for it. Los Cardones Eco Surf Lodge is so close, had excellent food and we sat in their hammocks during the hot parts of the afternoon enjoying breezes from the ocean. The house is very roomy and we felt very safe. The most best part was the AMAZING property manager - Janelle. She greeted us when we got in late at night, gave us an orientation to the house, and was very responsive when we needed things (e.g., we ran out of propane on night). I can't say enough good things about how welcome Janelle made us feel. And Casa Tranquila was awesome - my only request would be that they put in A/C.....it was hot but we survived under the ceiling fans in each room + hung out at Los Cardones during the hot times of the day. I look forward to returning with my daughter."

  • Wonderful beachfront property

    "This was our first trip to Nicaragua and we were looking for something with a great beach in an authentic Nicaraguan town. Casa Kaya definitely fit the bill. Josh responded to all our email quickly and our arrival and check-in went smoothly. The pre-arrival information was very helpful in finding our way out of Managua and to the property. We were met by the housekeeper Flora and the night watchman. This house has wonderful outdoor spaces for relaxing and the beach is sandy, very quiet and great for playing in the waves. The property is well maintained and clean and it felt very secure. The kitchen has all the necessary amenities to make a good meal and we used the outdoor grill also. The bedrooms are very basic. The main downside to them is the lack of closet space (so we lived out of suitcases on the floor) and the beds/pillows were not particularly comfortable but we all slept OK. Also there are no beach towels provided and there is no washing machine, so plan accordingly. There is a small store across the street where you can get a few basics but major shopping needs to be done in Leon. Poneloya is off the gringo trail and therefore there is not much available in terms of restaurants and activities. Leon and some of the other beach towns are easily accessible by car on well paved roads. As a side note, we were travelling with two children and never felt unsafe. We enjoyed Nicaragua more than Costa Rica and Panama."

    "Wow....we just got back today, and are already planning our next trip! We had the most amazing, inspring, relaxing, time. Casa Olas is very clean, the pool is amazing, the beach is 100 yards thru a beautiful mangrove forest with iquanas everywhere! Los Cardones is the surf lodge at the beach, the staff of 18 are the most kind, loving, caring people we have ever met. food was amazing, the rentals are awesome..ex: boogie boards=$5 per day! Ride horses on beach for only $15! We will be back very soon, and I encourage you to give it a try. very safe, amazing place waiting for you! Brandon and Melissa"

  • Thanksgiving Holiday

    "My wife and 6 kids decided to do something completely off the grid for once. It was my daughters last Thanksgiving while still a college student so this was the year. We researched CR, Mexico and the Virgin Islands. Never really thought of Nica until our travel agent went there to investigate a resort. I thought that would be interesting...Nicaragua. Well I did my research and putting a surf beach, fairly close to Managua and a surf shop nearby we found Mar y Estrella. We all loved being off the internet, w/o cell service and socializing within ourselves, and of course surfing as a family. The beach was like Newport, Corona or Huntington Beach in So Cal must of looked like 100 years ago. Nobody there with perfect waves all day long. The caretakers and cook were wonderful and hard not to befriend immediately. Day trips fishing and volcano exploring at Mombacho and neighboring Granada were nice to break up the serenity of sitting on the beach or taking a siesta in the hammock. Louise was easy to work with and has given me countless tid bits of extra info and tips. Some caveats... 1. Driving anywhere will take you twice as long as you think. 2. "Some" spanish is not enough. Someone needs a minimal conversational spanish to get anything except for Granada 3. A four wheel drive is recommended, any rain and dirt roads become like wet rubber cement 4. You learn to share the road with ox drawn carts, loose chickens, goats and pigs Last thoughts... Sunsets were unbelievably beautiful, Dinner at Hotel El Casino in Caseres is worth the small drive (ask for Patrice, the owner) and Nica people are wonderfully friendly and we were treated very well"
