  • Madeline's Place - My favoreite

    "We've been visiting lovely San Juan del Sur annually since 2003. We only discovered Madeline's Place in 2009 and have anxiously returned each year since. Enrico and Maddie make us feel welcome as we arrange reservations via email. The place is amazing... ...beautiful two-bedroom apartment with a nice kitchen, reliable appliances, room for the crew (Rhoda and I usually stay in the main bedroom while surf buds bunk it in the additional room), wireless internet with good signal, a TV that provided all the Royals playoff games, and the pool. Did I mention the pool? Who goes surfing all day in Nicaragua and then gets to enjoy a Flor de Caña and OJ by the beautiful pool. Even the neighbors have been charming (one can't have too many good friends). Angela is warm and takes great care of the place on schedule. The staff provides impecible security and treats us like family, and over our five years they have become like family. Each afternoon at 5:30, it's time to walk across the road to photograph another spectacular sunset. It's a short walk along the beach to any restaurant in town. We rely on Allan Carcamo, the best surf guide in Nicaragua to get to Playa Madera, Hermosa, Remanso, etc. daily. Even the Super Poli (the grocery store) is walkable. I offer my heartiest recommendation to Madeline's Place. Just don't make your reservations for the last weekend in September into the first days of October. I hope we'll be there..."

  • 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!"

  • Best beach location in Jiquilillo!

    "We spent a week at Casa Portugal and really enjoyed our time there. Arriving in Managua we took a taxi to the Leon micro bus terminal and spent a couple of nights in Leon before taking a micro bus to Chinandega. We arranged for a taxi (with the owners son) to meet us and after stopping at the grocery store we drove to the beach house. Very comfortable with a well supplied kitchen. Love the huge, high windows and doors and comfortable couch. Very open/airy which was fantastic. The caretakers are great and announced when the tortilla sellers were outside and even supplied a chair to wait for the bus! Besides fresh tortillas we bought coconut bread (which makes great french toast) and fish in town. The hammocks are great for relaxing and very private. Besides being a fabulous house, the location is the best, as it sits right at the beginning of town. Looking towards the ocean, going left is a long expanse of mostly uninhabited beach. To the right is the fishing village of Jiquilillo. I enjoyed watching the fishing boats leave in the afternoon and return in the morning. One of my favorite activities is walking beaches and looking for sea shells. I was not disappointed. The beach goes forever and is flat and easy for walking. The surf was small when we were there, but good for swimming right out front. We took the bus one day to the community of Padre Ramos and on the way back stopped at Monty's for the wifi. It is easy to get around without a car. Nice community and Casa Portugal is the place to stay!"

  • Wonderful house and helpful owners

    "My family spent a month at Casa Irie from mid December to mid January and we had a great time. The house is very comfortable and laid out very well for use by families. we enjoyed the foosball and the guitat which were nice touches and used the ipod dock for listening to music. The highlight of the place though is the infinity pool and the spectacular view of Nacascolo bay especially the sunsets every night. we would stand in the pool and watch the sun go down. It was beautiful. The caretakers, Ben and Grethyl was so nice and helpful and kept the place spotless every day. It really added to the pleasure of our trip. Of course Nicaragua has it's problems with infrastructure and power. Electricity was sometimes spotty and the road to the house required first gear on some of the hills. we had rented an old land cruiser and it was no problem. Still, that is no fault of the property itself and it only added to the adventure and did not decrease our enjoyment of our time there. The town was fun, nice places to eat and we made good use of the barbecue grill on the deck. The beaches were great. We often were the only ones on the beach or there might be three or four other people and we would joke how crowded the beach was. My grandkids got to see baby turtles hatching at la Flor beach and we spent a couple of lovely days at Coco beach, Hermosa beach and Marsella beach. My grandkids got to go ziplining, horseback riding and took surfing lessons. Rebecca, and Dan, the owners kept good contact with us by Email. The wifi at the house was excellent and they helped with any minor problems we had. I would have no hesitation going back to Casa Irie and would recommend it to anyone looking for a rental in San Juan del Sur."
