  • Beautiful home!

    "The house and views are incredible. We loved the chef Celina that the owner recommended. The driver she set up was great too, although neither spoke much English. The house had everything we needed, beds were comfortable. There are security guards every 100 yards or so in the community. The Aqua resort next door has a great beach and excellent massages ($69 hr including tax). The house is on a steep hillside (approximately 25 steps down from road) so I wouldn't recommend it for young children, no yard and no fence around the pool. The pool was clean but chilly, monkeys came down and drank from it at one point. The internet worked reasonably well, but not in the bedrooms - only the common area. We chartered a boat to surf since the breaks were too far to walk and we didn't have a car. It seemed expensive at $160 + board rental and they didn't take us very far away and the spots were all accessible by car. The place would have been difficult to find and I read in a blog that if you're involved in an auto accident in Nica that both parties go to jail until it's sorted out, so I don't recommend a rental car, use one of her drivers."

  • A Surfer's Paradise ... and a Beautiful, Simple Home

    "We LOVED Casa Maderas y Olas!! We stayed there for 1 month during July of 2014, and found it to be very clean, simple, and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the hard wood floors that kept sand to a minimum and cleaning a breeze. The washer was nice to have since we didn't bring much with us and needed to keep our clothes clean also. The king size beds were comfy and we liked that the two bedrooms were on opposite ends of the house for privacy. The large balcony overlooking the trees was a great place to relax after surfing, and the hammocks were awesome! Plenty of room for everyone to spread out! The kitchen was fully stocked with supplies for cooking, so we were able to save a lot of money cooking at home. Conveniently located only 20min from San Juan Del Sur, we enjoyed going into town for groceries and nightlife when the mood struck, as well as walking to our favorite pizza place- Munchies Bluues, which has the BEST pizza and atmosphere in Nica! For surfers, the location is perfect. Very close to Playa Maderas, offering waves for all levels of surfing, and very consistent surf. Small eateries are also there, so it was nice to grab some snacks and drinks after a great session. Overall, it was one of the best places we've stayed in our travels throughout Central America, and we can't wait to come back again soon ! Tony (property manager) was very helpful, answering any questions we had and making sure we were comfortable, and the caretaker that lived on property was VERY nice and helpful also. He even let us share his power outlet to charge our computers, as well as store our cold items in his refrigerator when the power went out occasionally (very common in Nicaragua). Excellent surf within walking distance... a comfy and beautiful home to relax in... in a welcoming and safe country. Who could ask for more?!! Casa Maderas y Olas?? We loved it!"

  • Paradise Found

    "My husband and I visited here in December for my birthday unfortunately it rained almost everyday of our trip. However, it was still one of the most amazing locations we have ever been to. The The house is amazing if you are looking for a true Swiss Family Robinson adventure this is it. The island has almost no tourism most people head to Little Corn which is not really our style. When you arrive at the airport ask for the cab driver Arturo he was extremely helpful he only speaks Spanish, but this was not a prolem for us. Don and his family are helpful and welcoming but yet still give you more than enough privacy. I can not wait to return!"

  • Great family escape

    "This was a fantastic week! Absolutely magical, for my kids who didn't surf they had a blast as the beaches are empty and safe and the pool and smoothies were so accessible. I loved the surf, it was too advanced for my boys and that's something to consider as it's a fast, world-class tube ride on sand. We loved our excursion to the volcano and Granada, but the zipline was wimpy there and I wouldn't recommend it. I've been to Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Hondorus and by far this is where I want to come back. We never felt unsafe and met some great people from around the world. The new ice cream shop by the entrance is fantastic."
