  • Best house in SJDS

    "Casa Colina is beautiful and well maintained-- has all the comforts from home. 7 of us adults fit comfortably, the loft space was a bit hot so the guys ended up sleeping in the living room which gets a nice breeze at night. The view is breath taking at all times of the day, but is especially cool at night when the town is lit up. As expected in Nica- the electricity did go out twice during our week stay, but that is no reflection on the home itself. even though the pool is quite small, it was such a luxury to have one after walking up the hill to get home. We all got massages at the house, which was incredible! Highly recommend doing that! Catalina is the best ever. Can't say enough good things about her! She is so helpful and brought us a ton of laughs and fun times. I highly reccomend staying at casa Colina if your considering staying in SJDS."

  • Excellent vacation

    "My husband and I spent a month at Villa Pavela . Half of that time was with another couple. The Villa was very comfortable with two bedrooms, both of which had air conditioning and two bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and the front veranda/dining area had comfortable seating as well as two hammocks where you could watch lovely sunsets in the evening .Remanso Beach was less than a two minute walk from the house:nice for beginning surfers or just cooling off between the rolling surf(not big waves at that time of year). San Juan del Sur was less than 10 minutes by car so you could go out to eat, shop at the mercado or the Pali grocery store or the fish market. A car is a must, as it did get hot during the day, so biking would be quite the excursion.Also a car would be useful for exploring other beaches and towns in a very friendly Nicaragua. Wifi is available. There are brown outs (usually not for long)but the villa has a back up generator so that the wifi and fridge run. Eliza is the caretaker and is very efficient-cleaning every day.Laundry service is also available through Eliza and is very reasonably priced. If you want to do your own bits and pieces, there is a long clothesline in the side hallway and with the wind blowing ,it isn't long before everything dries. Even if you cannot speak Spanish ,Eliza has a tablet so through translation program most things could be sorted out. She will also cook for you, if you arrange it with her(extra cost but very reasonable). The fish dinners were great. The owners of the villa are most helpful and followup is very quick. We forgot my husband's e reader in Nicaragua and the owner graciously brought it back to Canada for us. Now that's hospitality! All in all, everything is very comfortable-including the beds and very clean. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Pavela for a long stay or short one-its like staying at a friend's place."

  • Rest seekers

    "After living and working here in Nicaragua for 17 yrs it is always nice to find new places that take your breathe away and remind you of the beauty and tranquility that Nicaragua has. This home got us excited from the first moment we placed our eyes on her. It was spacious, at one with nature with it's big screens for bedroom windows, and a great balance for indoor and outdoor options to rest and revive the soul. The beach was not to close, but once you got there, it was as good as any we have enjoyed in the past. Not many will be disappointed by choosing this piece of paradise."

  • Gorgeous property!

    "Our family and friends (4 adults and 2 kids ages 9 and 6) stayed at this property in late November. It is truly stunning. The highlight, without any doubt, is the beach. Broad, beautiful sand; nice moderate waves; and virtual no people. The kids had an excellent time building sand castles and boogie boarding (boards can be rented at the restaurant down the beach). We've had several vacation stays at Pacific coast beaches (Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica) and this is our favorite. The property unit itself was also a very pleasant suprise. It was spacious, immaculate, and well-equipment. There was plenty of space to cook and socialize. The bedrooms upstairs were comfortable and gave our group of 6 plenty of room. The washing machine was also handy. The property is a bargin. As mentioned in other reviews, the potential downside--an upside for many--is the relative isolation. There is not a whole lot of development in this area, which boggles the mind considering its beauty. There is one adequate but unexceptional restaurant on the beach. We ate breakfast and dinner there several times, but I'd recommend bringing some groceries in from San Juan del Sur rather than relying too heavily on the restaurant. We didn't have a rental car which limited our mobility some, but had no trouble arranging transport to see the turtles at la Flor. The property and beach are perfect for anyone looking to relax with family and friends in peaceful, gorgeous setting."
