  • BEST PLACE TO STAY!

    "Everything about Villas Playa Maderas is AMAZING. We travel every year taking a month getaway, and our rule is we will never go to the same place twice... BUT this will be the exception to the rule. We most definitely will be returning! The view is stunning, it's a short 2 minute walk to the beach along a private path, the infinity pool at sunset is to die for but what makes Villas Playa Maderas stand above any other place is the staffo. Without the wonderful team it wouldn't have the same energy of a home away from home. Right from the time of booking Richardo personally called to confirm dates and to see if we needed anything else arranged. Roberto and Maryleth live just about villa #1&2 and will take the very best care of you-they are the sweetest people you will ever meet- they take huge pride in that they do. I highly recommend getting Maryleth to make your meals, she's an amazing cook! The 24 hour security team at the villas are great. This is the safest we have ever felt travelling, and when travelling with children you can't put a price on that. We highly recommend Villas Playa Maderas to anyone travelling to Nicarugua! It's a place that can not be missed!"

  • Excellent Week!!!!

    "I planned a trip here for my birthday with my partner and 6 other gay men. I was looking for a low key beach vacation where we could relax and do nothing much other than that. I discovered Nicaragua 365 and sent an email through the website for a house that would accommodate all of us. The first house I chose was not available for our dates but very quickly David and James responded with this house which was equally nice. From that point on David and James took care of everything. We also decided to take advantage of the package that included two meals a day. We arrived at Managua Airport late on Saturday morning. The airport is very small which is great because you can get through security quickly. I have to be honest that we were a bit nervous about how we would be received. We are 8 gay men and we weren't sure how we'd be treated, we were pleasantly surprised how we were welcomed. We walked outside and were greeted by the driver who took us to the house. The drive was about 2.5 hours but it was fine because none of us had been to Nicaragua and it was nice to see the country. We arrived at the house and Cecilia was there already cooking. We unpacked and had a cocktail and started relaxing right away. James stopped by and made sure we had everything we needed. The next day David came by to introduce himself and schedule activities for us. Fortunately he was there because one in our group was stung by a sting ray and David drove him to the clinic right away (all turned out fine). On Wednesday we took a day trip to Granada and went zip lining. David came along with us and made sure we saw the highlights of Granada. We went on a nice boat ride, stopped at an island for drinks and then went to an excellent dinner. I can tell you this was one of the best vacations I have been on. The house was perfect, the staff was incredible and the location was exactly what I was looking for. It was clean, safe, beautiful and relaxing. Thank you to David, James, Cecilia, Juanita, and everyone else who made my birthday vacation one to remember."

  • Gorgeous property!

    "Our family and friends (4 adults and 2 kids ages 9 and 6) stayed at this property in late November. It is truly stunning. The highlight, without any doubt, is the beach. Broad, beautiful sand; nice moderate waves; and virtual no people. The kids had an excellent time building sand castles and boogie boarding (boards can be rented at the restaurant down the beach). We've had several vacation stays at Pacific coast beaches (Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica) and this is our favorite. The property unit itself was also a very pleasant suprise. It was spacious, immaculate, and well-equipment. There was plenty of space to cook and socialize. The bedrooms upstairs were comfortable and gave our group of 6 plenty of room. The washing machine was also handy. The property is a bargin. As mentioned in other reviews, the potential downside--an upside for many--is the relative isolation. There is not a whole lot of development in this area, which boggles the mind considering its beauty. There is one adequate but unexceptional restaurant on the beach. We ate breakfast and dinner there several times, but I'd recommend bringing some groceries in from San Juan del Sur rather than relying too heavily on the restaurant. We didn't have a rental car which limited our mobility some, but had no trouble arranging transport to see the turtles at la Flor. The property and beach are perfect for anyone looking to relax with family and friends in peaceful, gorgeous setting."
