  • Wonderful Place

    "This place was fantastic. The caretaker was friendly and helpful, the condo was well equipped with great views and nice rooftop area. I would highly recommend it for a stay in San Juan del Sur- we loved it!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Amazing property, wonderful location

    "My husband and I just came back from an 8 day stay at Tortuga Azul with another couple, and to say we had a wonderful time is an understatement! The house is absolutely stunning and the photos do it no justice at all. It is a straw bale construction, so the walls are all curved and organic looking, which is really different to what we are used to in the north but the result is amazing! The pool and the outdoor area are perfect, so private and peaceful. You really feel like you are out on your own in the middle of nowhere! William the caretaker keeps everything very clean, and we saw only a couple of bugs (no cockroaches-yay!!). The other reviews have talked about how writing things down in english was really the best way to communicate with him and they were not wrong! We had a few minor water problems during our stay and he fixed them within a couple of minutes, he really is a great asset. The location was great, far enough away from town for it to be nice and secluded, but also close enough that you can walk (during the day time only, and it takes about 30 minutes). Taxis can get a little expensive however, and I think we were overcharged quite a bit while we were there. We were getting charged $15 each way in/out of town, and once or twice we were even charged $20 each way! I have heard that this is unusually expensive, however if it is the norm I would recommend hiring the owners car with the driver Elie as that would probably be cheaper. Lots of the reviews mention Elie, and he really is such a gem. A genuine person, and he seems to really enjoy his job. The other reviews however make it sound like he is quite readily available, however this was not the case when we were there. We needed to book him at least one day in advance as he was so busy, and he doesn't like to work past 5 as he has 2 young children, so keep that in mind! He will recommend other taxis however if you need them! The only downside about the house is the noise of the dogs barking at night, but that is nothing some ear plugs can't fix! Also the internet is complicated and slow, but the owners are trying to rectify that! In short-GO AND STAY HERE!! It was a truly wonderful stay and we can't wait to return as soon as we can!"
