  • So Great!

    "Just loved this place and Nicaragua as a whole. We're huge fans of C. Rica (and always will be) but this little piece of Nica paradise was perfect for us. Owner Mark and manager Buzz were the best - everything EXACTLY as promised. My teens' reaction upon seeing the beautiful condo, killer view, big screen TV and WiFi service better than our home? "Mom - you gotta find us more places like this for vacations!" It only got better with Pili's excellent food at the cafe and Esteban's killer pina coladas/smoothies. Ricki and Jarvin rounded out the excellent service at our small but oh so perfect cafe/bar/pool a stone's throw from the condo's back porch. Hubby couldn't decide whether to golf first and then surf or vice versa. Did plenty of both - the 9 hole course is beautifully maintained and you MUST tee off the blues on hole 7 - the view is the best of most golf courses short of the big famous ones. Didn't take advantage of so much that we could have - fishing, fresh seafood delivered to our door (well, who was I to compete with Pili's cooking?), pangas to other surf spots.... but we had to save something for next trip! Carolina cleaned the condo for 3 - 4 hours every other day and washed, dried and folded our clothes. Maxi Pali grocery store in Rivas has all supplies necessary for self-sufficiency. Road is paved almost to Playa Gigante turnoff - 1/4 mile of progress every week! Massage by Miriam - in the condo - heaven. Buzz will arrange. The breeze was consistent and wonderful - way fewer bugs than at our family farm in Kansas. Sadly, the ongoing drought in Nica made for great weather for our stay, but everything is still very, very lush compared to our home in SoCal. Loved the howler monkeys we heard every night and every morning in the hills to the south of the river - and one little guy who visited one day in the tree next to the condo. Incredibly brilliant blue and orange crabs in hundreds of holes under the trees. Bird sounds that we miss very much. And the beach - our very own. My teens spent hours body surfing, collecting shells, exploring tide pools at south end of the beach. Never, ever saw more than 5 people there at one time. Even in front of the break, a huge crowd was maybe 12 people on the beach. Based on our observations of the level of activity EVERYwhere in Nica, this kind of private paradise will fast disappear. We will be back soon!"

  • Loved The Place and Owners

    "Casa Miramar is beautifully perched on top of a mountain overlooking the bay, it is truly spectacular. Vanessa and Will took every precaution to make sure our stay was as comfortable and wonderful as we imagined. They are both open, warm and full of tons information about Nicaragua. I really cannot say enough to how nice they are. The home well stocked with appliances, furniture, utensils, and towels. The men and woman come in everyday to clean and do laundry, they are extremely respectful and thorough. You will not be in need of anything. We were a large family so we took up both houses. The houses are situated right next to one another with a breeze way between. he town of San Juan Del Sur is clean and easy to get around. There is a wonderful bakery (sorry I can't remember the name) with fresh bread, we loved that place. Vanessa owns a Yoga studio so we took advantage of the meditation and yoga. I highly recommend seeing and using her Yoga studio. We loved the atmosphere the neighbors. San Juan is an easy jaunt to other bays in the area that are beautiful secluded beaches. I loved maderas alot although the road down is a bit tricky. The hike to the Jesus statue is really beautiful, with great views. The meals we had were so delicious, highly recommend. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did."

  • Unobstructed Beauty

    "We stayed a week at this lovely property. Chuck and Lefty are fantastic hosts who try to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Lefty will sunbathe with you on the deck, and Chuck has a lot of local information, so if you are looking for things to do, or want to know more about the area be sure to ask him. I didn't ever feel unsafe or leery in the area... the only thing that startled me was the sound the howler monkeys make (I had never heard anything like it before). The house is comfortable with no need for A/C even on hot days; the breeze is constant and keeps it cool. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make meals (just add food from Pali or the local SJDS mercado). The views are unparalleled and breathtaking. My husband and I traveled with our kids (12 & 17), and another family of 3. The house easily accommodated all of us without feeling crowded. We walked to Playa Madera a few times and enjoyed the trip (ask Chuck about the shortcut; it will make your life much easier) We will definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in this area."
