Best Trip Ever - Highly Recommended - Casa De Mono
"Where do I start? First of all, I've traveled through Central America, South America and some of Europe. I always said I wanted to retire in Costa Rica (Costa Rica was my first trip internationally) but I think Nicaragua has really moved up the charts. Not only was the experience in Nicaragua the best but Casa De Mono was amazing. The owners of the home are awesome. We were in full communication throughout the entire trip along with the amazing team at Remax - San Juan Del Sur - Gabby and Nicole. Can't forget to mention the awesome hook up Remax team connected us with - Tour Guide Francisco Cárcamo drove us for the day to explore Lake Nicaragua and Granada, was the best idea ever! We fed monkeys straight from the boat. They came out of the tree and took the food right out of our hands. The beaches were awesome and so close. Super easy to get around the town after a few days of driving. Safety was a huge concern prior to arriving but I have to say I have never felt safer. There is so much more to elaborate on but not enough space.
Now to the specifics on accommodations at Casa De Mono. The home has everything you need. Of course you would need to stop off at the local market to get a few items but honestly you get a few things during the tour with Remax once you get there and then go back for more. The beds are super cozy. The sheets/towels are clean. If you need to wash during the week; the home has a washer and dryer. It's awesome. DO NOT AND I REPEAT DO NOT BRING ALOT OF CLOTHES. You need a few bathing suits and a couple outfits. Otherwise you are in your bathing suit the entire time and flip flops. Tennies incase you want to hike down to the beach.
One thing to remember when you arrive don't get freaked out on the drive to the home; it's about a 20 minute from San Juan del Sur - Remax will escort you to the home. You drive through the small towns and bumping roads but once you get up to the home and walk through the doors you are in paradise. I promise you; you will not be disappointed for one minute.
I highly recommend this property for a couple or a small family (Kids under 5 probably wouldn't be a good idea only because there isn't a gate around the pool) or even a girls trip. I loved my trip with my sister and we plan on heading back again really soon. Thanks again to Carol, Dave and Ed for accommodating the IWG. Thanks for the great memories."

"We had a great time at Casa Suenos. I went down to visit San Juan del Sur with four other guys and the house was exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of beds, full kitchen, great infinity pool with a view, and just far enough outside of town to feel private enough. Walking distance to town was great - took five minutes to get to the Cerveceria (great spot in town, if you make it down here you need to check this spot out). Five stars and would recommend to anyone looking to find a nice affordable house to stay for a week or more!"

"we spend 5 month here at SuiCaNica and playa Marsella. Aroldo and Cynthia have been invaluable assisting us by working hard to do the maintenance on the house and infrastructure. Cynthia's cooking is awesome and the housekeeping impeccable. Aroldo has been open to learning all sorts of new skills around the house. The pool is crystal clear and the yard and vegetation are healthy and lend shade and privacy. We have never felt this safe before and had absolutely no negative experiences while here for all this time. We are already looking forward to our next stay in the coming winter. The Restaurants and local residents are also awesome , friendly and helpful, we are so grateful for having the opportunity and privilege to make life long friends in the area."

"Everything about Villas Playa Maderas is AMAZING.
We travel every year taking a month getaway, and our rule is we will never go to the same place twice... BUT this will be the exception to the rule. We most definitely will be returning!
The view is stunning, it's a short 2 minute walk to the beach along a private path, the infinity pool at sunset is to die for but what makes Villas Playa Maderas stand above any other place is the staffo. Without the wonderful team it wouldn't have the same energy of a home away from home.
Right from the time of booking Richardo personally called to confirm dates and to see if we needed anything else arranged.
Roberto and Maryleth live just about villa #1&2 and will take the very best care of you-they are the sweetest people you will ever meet- they take huge pride in that they do. I highly recommend getting Maryleth to make your meals, she's an amazing cook!
The 24 hour security team at the villas are great. This is the safest we have ever felt travelling, and when travelling with children you can't put a price on that.
We highly recommend Villas Playa Maderas to anyone travelling to Nicarugua! It's a place that can not be missed!"
