  • Beautiful Home, Great Service!

    "My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Selva for a week. Wanting a blend of relaxation, adventure and comfort- This was perfect. The ReMax staff was very helpful and always quick to respond with answers and helpful information. Laura and Joel were also helpful in our entire trip planning madness to give advice and tips on coordination. The house is beautiful, clean, breezy, and lovely. We cooked twice a day and the kitchen was great! While we would not change anything about our stay, here is a bulleted list of pros and considerations: Considerations: - Most days, the breezy wonderful air was perfect. Nights were quite hot. We adapted well after the first night. One should know that breezy does not mean your nights will be 70 degrees with climate controlled air. - If you want to be able to easily access nightlife in town, be prepared for a good 15 - 20 minutes on a dark bumpy dirt road (This would have been easier if Dollar Rental would have given us the automatic 4x4 I had confirmed 3 times over the two month lead up to our stay... But hey!? - Learning to drive a stick shift in Nicaragua was an adventure). Don't miss the signs!! - The pool was ridden with bees, and we couldn't use it. This was somewhat disappointing, but most days we either spent on the beautiful beach, or the beautiful pool at Pelican Eyes in town. Pros - Beautiful home!! --Designed so well to compliment the beautiful nature that surrounds it. The breeze is wonderful and we enjoyed the openness of the home. Also, while you are close to other homes, it feels very private with the way the windows and layout are designed. - Service! From before we arrived, Larua and the Remax staff were so helpful and easy to coordinate with. They helped us hire a driver to drive the car from the airport to SJDS, which I would highly recommend because there ARE NO MARKED road signs anywhere. - Location!! While the nights we spent in town made for an interesting drive back to Balcones, we loved that we could experience SJDS and feel so relaxed and comfortable when we returned home. - Beach! The beach that is reserved for Balcones is one of the best we visited in Nicaragua. It was private, clean, and had food and refreshments. We would recommend this home to friends! The love and eco-conscious thought that went into designing this property really makes it feel like home. We are looking forward to going back."

  • Villa Oro, San Juan del Sur

    "My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Oro. Though there were only two of us, it would easily accommodate another couple, or children. Villa Oro is a wonderful place to stay while visiting San Juan del Sur. The house is in a lovely, quiet location about 10 minutes from town. The house is situated in the hills above San Juan, with stunning views of the ocean, the sunsets, and the night sky. The house is amazingly well equipped, and the kitchen has everything you might want for any cooking you want to do at home. We actually preferred to sip a drink, and eat dinner on the veranda, watching the sun set over the bay. The house is very light and airy, with high ceilings. The living area is large, with French doors that open onto the veranda. The master bedroom has a king size bed, with a lovely master bath. This bedroom also has French doors that open onto the veranda. The whole house has enough doors and windows, so that it was delightful to open them up and let the breeze blow through. The grounds are large, and beautifully landscaped. The howler monkeys came onto the property on several occasions, and the pool was a treat after a day at the beach. Finally, the wifi is great! We had a very small rental car, which was fine for navigating the road to Villa Oro in the dry season. We also had no trouble getting to most all of the beaches in our little Yaris. We enjoyed the fresh fish we bought near the port, the produce in the market, Sanchez Market, the bread at Pan de Vida, and the occasional trip to Pali. The owner is very responsive, and will help you with any questions you have regarding the property, and the onsite caretakers are extremely helpful as well."

  • Awesome!

    "Stayed here for a week with a friend visiting some volunteer friends. This house is awesome - would absolutely recommend this home. It is close to lots of restaurants, pulperia (small store), hotels with pools. The home has excellent ventilation, a pool inside the home, kitchen with lots of amenities and the bedrooms have AC. We only needed to use the AC at night. The upstairs bedroom has a nice balcony that has an awesome view. Wifi was fantastic. The property manager was very helpful, the housekeeper was wonderful and the neighbors were also extremely friendly and helped us giving us some tips about the city. Taxis went by in the street frequently so if we didn't want to walk we could always grab a ride and this street felt very safe. I would definitely return and stay longer!"

  • My Stay at Hacienda Villas through Hacienda Iguana Rentals

    "My brother and I decided to join in last minute on a group surf trip to Nica. We were too late to get into the house the group was renting, so we had to book our own apartment. We found the 1-bedroom in Hacienda Villas and contacted Roger (property manager) right away. He was quick with response, extremely thorough and articulate in all correspondence, and was super helpful throughout our stay as well. The apartment had a great view of the ocean, a pool, full kitchen, and balcony. I will be booking again with these guys."
