  • 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."

  • Santuario del Sol.. Fabulous

    "This house is remarkable and a perfect place to stay for relaxation, surfing and hiking. Four of us stayed in March 2015. The house sits on the beach, between two surf breaks. Views of the ocean and beach are fantastic, even from the several shady areas to sit in the yard. The housekeeper and pool/gardener are very friendly. We splurged and got a chef to cook us all breakfasts and dinners. I highly recommend this, and if you do ask for the chef named Amilcor; wonderful chef! We spent sunsets at the beach club with a cocktail in hand. The iguana staff was helpful when making pre trip arrangements, including transportation arrangements. The perfect place to stay for the 'relaxing' portion of our Nicaraguan vacation."

  • 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."

  • 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."
