"Casa Culebra was far beyond what we expected for our holiday!!! We will definitely return to Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur and Balcones de Majagual:)
The Remax folks in town set us up with Francesco (he is a gem!!!!) to pick us up from the airport and drive our rental car out to San Juan. Upon arrival, we stopped in to the Remax office where were we greeted and promptly toured around town. It was perfect AND we had a chance to pop in to stock up on goodies for our first breakfast.
Upon arriving at Balcones we were again reminded that we were in good hands. The staff are incredible and make you feel welcome and safe at all times. We were given the tour of our house - and it was far beyond our expectations! Far bigger than we thought, spotless and with TONS of kitchen bits & bobs.
Our 11 days were perfect. Truly. (ok fine, we had to kill a scorpion but really whatddya expect? it is the jungle after all but we will just add that to the list of life experiences in our back pocket!)
But really, this place was a slice of heaven. The house, the beaches, the kind people, the food - it was awesome. At any time, we felt we could contact the Remax folks in town for any support or with any questions.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to have a great holiday with the opportunity to stay in the beauty of the jungle."

"This place is a gem. With the added beachfront pool this place is awesome. The pool has these ledges on the sides that are about 4 feet wide and are shallow enough for my 3 year old (who, in the past has been terrified of pools) to have a blast. He also had fun playing with the other kids at the beach club about 100 feet away. We also went for the meal program. I highly recommend it because there isn't really a grocery store nearby. And, it's a great deal. The food was delicious and we had leftovers- add eggs and you've got breakfast. But, let's not forget the surf break literally right in front of the pool. My only con is that there were only 6 bar stools for the outdoor bar (one for every bedroom). Not enough, as we spent most of our time there. I really had to dig deep to find that single shortcoming. WE WILL BE BACK. Oh, and by the way Seth and Lindsey are incredible hosts. The house staff is great as well. They were there to clean and such but not intrusive. Best place on this beach. Tip generously, they rock."

"I stayed at Casa Mono for Christmas 2014 and it was everything that all of the reviews say -- beautiful, peaceful, and wonderful (honestly, I'm not sure that the pictures even do it justice!). The house is really a series of structures "connected" by one continuous "roof"/covering. One of the things that is so wonderful about this layout is that it centers around the outdoor space. Additionally, it allows for people to be in the bedrooms and/or the kitchen area and/or the living room area while still feeling like you have your own space. The complex is very well run -- very present 24 hour security and very helpful maintenance crew who were attentive -- and the owners made the booking easy. The office manager at ReMax, Gabby, was really above and beyond, including helping us coordinate our lost luggage on Christmas Eve! Overall it was a wonderful vacation and I hope to be back soon!"

"Five women spent 4 wonderful days in San Juan del Sur and found this beautiful villa to be the perfect place for us. We had access to the quiet beach town with all the restaurants and activities within walking distance. The security provided restful nights. We were welcomed by Keith and his staff, meals were wonderful and if we had not been touring other cities in Nicaragua we would have loved to stay all 11 days here. Enjoy....you won't be disappointed!"
