  • 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!"

  • Great getaway for relaxation!

    "We had a wonderful time. It was great to have a few beaches to choose from and that they were not busy. It felt like we were in our very own paradise. The house was spacious and cool during the day. Hearing the monkeys in the morning was really cool. Fantastic views! We would recommend it to friends."

  • 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..."

  • Perfect Taste of Nicaragua!

    "We originally wanted to stay at CASAMARI, however some of our family could not join us. Maritiza offered us a two bedroom condo as an alternative on the ground floor of this property. It was a perfect solution. Mari kept the communication and arrangements ahead of time so we felt secure in vacation stay. Upon arrival, Raul was there to greet us and show us around. The small condo was just fine for us (husband and his parents). The property is located just up a few streets from town, great for walking around, going to dinner...we felt very safe. The condo had everything we needed...mainly air conditioning! We sat outside by the pool, enjoying the view. There were two other condo's downstairs...one with a lovely couple and another unit with a lady that would not say hello or smile. I was originally reluctant to rent with three units downstairs and one upstairs sharing the pool, but really we did not see other tenants much during our stay. The upstairs three bedroom unit was really nice, I would want to stay there next time I visit SJDS. This location really is perfect for being close to town."
