  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Exceptional

    "We brought a group on mission trip here after working hard in northern Nica. We wanted something away from the crazy and different from normal tourist visits. We found it here! Our group did surfing, horseback riding, spearfishing, and a trip into San Juan del Sur. We had Theresa cook for us. It was really an awesome experience and the owners were very welcoming and helpful to us! Take them seriously on the directions and difficulty driving in, especially if you possibly may arrive at night. I failed to review the directions and just went off GPS. We wasted an hour in paradise. We hope to return for mission trips in the future!"

  • Inolvidable!! Unforgettable !!!

    "This is our second time in Balcones and it won't be the last one!! It's our family favorite place ever!! We never travel twice to the same place and here we are again counting the days to our next trip to Balcones. We stayed at Casa Francesca last Christmas and we loved every minute of it, sometimes I didn't even want to go to the beach because the house is so amazing that you don't want to leave! The property is great and the pool is amazing!! I can't even try to describe the views, they are unbelievable !! So peaceful ( actually this trip way too peaceful, the monkeys didn't want to come to say hi:(:( Laura helped us since the very beginning making our last minute trip a reality ( Laura, I can't thank you enough!!) and Gabriela and her team were the best, as always!! The guards at the gate were very nice and always happy to help. Hasta pronto Casa Francesca, we'll be back soon!!"
