  • Unobstructed Beauty

    "We stayed a week at this lovely property. Chuck and Lefty are fantastic hosts who try to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Lefty will sunbathe with you on the deck, and Chuck has a lot of local information, so if you are looking for things to do, or want to know more about the area be sure to ask him. I didn't ever feel unsafe or leery in the area... the only thing that startled me was the sound the howler monkeys make (I had never heard anything like it before). The house is comfortable with no need for A/C even on hot days; the breeze is constant and keeps it cool. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make meals (just add food from Pali or the local SJDS mercado). The views are unparalleled and breathtaking. My husband and I traveled with our kids (12 & 17), and another family of 3. The house easily accommodated all of us without feeling crowded. We walked to Playa Madera a few times and enjoyed the trip (ask Chuck about the shortcut; it will make your life much easier) We will definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in this area."

  • Paradise at Casa Sueno

    "Four couples ranging in age from 55 to 67 just returned from a week in paradise. We stayed at Los Cardones Surf Lodge 6 years ago and toured Casa Sueno when it was being built so we knew the area, the secluded, empty beach and what to expect. We were not disappointed. The accommodations were wonderful – particularly the great patio area where we spent much of our time. We appreciated Janelle’s (the property manager) help and advice both before and during our stay. She had all our food in the house for us when we arrived and she even provided us with unexpected bake treats a couple of times during our visit – a nice touch! Eveling prepared delicious meals including killer ceviche, homemade tortillas and side dishes, and we chose to grill chicken or fish for ourselves for dinners. We can’t express ourselves any better than JPF and Karen E did when they wrote their reviews. It was the most relaxing vacation we have had. Waves were good for the surfers, shells were plentiful, we saw a turtle lay her eggs and watched 83 baby turtles hatch at Los Cardones. Some of our group went fishing with Dan (Janelle’s husband) and each caught a fish and enjoyed a good day at sea. Our personal home massages were to die for and the extra refrigerator for our Tonia’s kept the beer at just the right temperature. Burrito Bandito serves great food on the way into Casa Sueno, should you need a bite or cold beverage before the long drive in. Hoping to return in the future, as this is a “must go to” destination for those that like off the beaten path places, solitude and gorgeous sunsets."

  • Outstanding Casa.

    "We cannot recommend Casa Flor de Luna highly enough. Our stay helped to make our six days in Granada an exceptional experience. The Casa is well located, a couple of blocks off of the main road coming in from Managua and a 10-15 minute walk to Parque Central and all Granada restaurants and attractions. The house includes a garage which was ideal for our rental car. The main floor of the house has a spacious salla/living room, a well appointed kitchen with all necessary appliances and utensils. There are two very spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds (2 upstairs and 1.5 downstairs). It also includes three bathrooms with large shower stalls in each. All of the rooms have ceiling fans. The two bedrooms have AC but we never used it. We found we could sleep and relax comfortably with just the fans. We were frugal with lights and always ensured electrical items were off / unplugged unless we were using them. Our cost for electricity for 6 days was $8.37 but beware if you use AC and leave things on! The house is equipped with cable tv and Internet and very reliable wifi. The pool is a fantastic asset in the heat of Granada. It is very private (in the enclosed courtyard) and while small, it is ideal for a cooling dip. The decor is comfortable and the lifestyle wonderfully Nica. You are also only a few blocks walk to two grocery stores that, while expensive by local standards, offer a wide range of amenities including fresh fruit, veggies, meat, bread, cold cuts, cheese, wine and beer. What more do you need? The local agents, Heydi and Eric, are friendly, helpful and nearby. The cleaner and pool guy, Jenny and Javier respectively, are also friendly and efficient. This is a wonderful Casa and will help to make your stay in Granada special."

  • 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!!"

Nicaragua Travel Tips

Sporting and Leisure Activities near Nicaragua Vacation Rentals

In the area around San Juan Del Sur, surfing is a popular pastime. The swells in Nicaragua are so legendary that they attract surfers from all over the world. Kite surfers and windsurfers can also enjoy the wind and waves. There are several schools along the coastline that provide equipment and lessons if you want to give these sports a try.

Fishing charters are widely available for those that enjoy deep sea and sport fishing. If you want to hook game fish such as marlin, sailfish or tuna, you will want to head out with an experienced skipper who can take you to the best fishing spots. If you prefer something a little more leisurely, a great way to spend an afternoon is on a snorkeling cruise. Sail out of the bay and anchor off one of the many reefs. Then spend the afternoon snorkeling and enjoy the colorful underwater world. If you hold a scuba diving qualification, there are several dive schools and charter companies that will be able to take you out to explore the many reefs. You can even upgrade your certification or sign up for a specialty course during your stay.

If you enjoy lush foliage and birding and don’t mind heights then a treetop canopy tour in the rainforest is a great daytime excursion. Travel between platforms on a zip line and experience a unique bird’s-eye view of your surroundings. Local outfitters are well equipped and ensure that you complete the excursion safely. Another popular way to explore the interior is on a horseback excursion.

Getting to Nicaragua Villas

One of the main points of entry into Nicaragua is Managua International Airport. The airport hosts a wide number of leading North American airlines as well as various other regional airlines. There are frequently scheduled commercial flights from most major hubs in the U.S.

Seasons to Visit Nicaragua Oceanfront Rentals

The peak travel season for surfers is between the months of May and November, when the swell conditions are at their best. Unfortunately, this is also the heavy rainy season. Showers are typically short-lived but downpours can be heavy. If traveling overland in areas where there are only dirt roads, you will need an all-terrain vehicle. In general, a tropical climate dominates which results in consistently warm temperatures all year long. A popular time for beach lovers is between the months of December and April. Nicaragua provides the perfect escape for those from the Northern Hemisphere who want to get away from icy climates for a while. This is also traditionally the windy season so you may need to hold onto your beach hat.

San Juan Del Sur Vacation Rentals in Nicaragua

San Juan Del Sur is one of the most popular beach destinations in Nicaragua. There are many stylish homes and villas that are available for rent. Many homes have magnificent views out over the bay and large open decks where you can dine in the evening or suntan during the day. Many have beautiful lush tropical gardens, complete with a few local inhabitants such as colorful parrots and monkeys. Many of the homes include a hospitality service where housekeepers will cook, clean and even do the grocery shopping for you. On request, they can also get in touch with local tour operators and arrange sightseeing excursions and transportation for you. On days when you are feeling lazy, you can head down to the beach or relax poolside. Hammocks strapped in the trees provide perfect places to finish reading your favorite book. The living areas are generally spacious and comfortably furnished. Entertainment centers are great for when you don’t feel like heading outdoors.
