Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mariposa is magnificent!

Our first trip to Nicaragua was during the political turmoil everyone has been reading about, but we saw very little dissent, and had a great time. Most of that was due to the house we stayed in: private pool, plenty of room, great kitchen and outdoor BBQ area. Mostly sitting on the balcony looking at the surf in the awesome patio furniture Ksenia and Tim have was our favorite house "activity" - so relaxing and a beautiful view.

The road from SJDS is a rural, dirt road (rent a 4x4), and the hike up and down the beach road would be difficult for some, but we did it daily and often. The water was awesome, the beach bar fun (the tacos were very good) and the locals overall very friendly.

The house set this trip apart tho: great beds, bathrooms, living area, kitchen and pool - on-sight couple Jose and Tania kept things clean, the 6p to 6am security guard Baxion was on point --we really couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Amazing House, Beautiful Beach, Best location

  • 5 of 5

What more can I say! This was probably the perfect spot. Regardless of the long drive from Managua airport to get here, it was well worth the travel. The beach is a short 1-2 minute walk from the front door and is very relaxing/secluded. The house is still close enough to San Juan del Sur that if you want to go into the city for groceries or a night out on the town, it's a short taxi away. We took multiple surf lessons and had no problem enjoying activities/tours right there on the beach. There were great waves for beginners and it wasn't crowded.

The house itself is massive and exactly like the pictures. The house keepers were willing to provide cooking, driving, and more for a very reasonable price and made us feel very comfortable throughout our journey.

I would recommend this place more stars if I could.

Perfect family holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Eight of us...two daughters, two sons-in-law, two grandchildren and us, two grandparents, spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home with a gourmet kitchen! Short walk downhill to the beach with two small restaurants with amazing fish tacos. Surf lessons and good surfing. Beautiful private pool. Lots of outdoor seating to watch the sunset, etc. The caretakers live next door and we’re very helpful...only in Spanish, though. We hired their car one day to take some of our group to town and back, then some others to the Adventure Park. A bit far away from the town. The owners came by one day to meet us! Lovely couple!

Paradise! Hands down the most amazing villa we have ever stayed in. Vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families traveling together, with children (ages 14, 13, 13 & 10). We all agreed it was the best villa any of us have ever stayed in - a stunning home with a spectacular infinity pool which was only steps from the beach.

First, the owner, Ksenia is fabulous. Any time I ever reached out with a question she was able to answer within minutes. As we were traveling from Boston the fact that I could reach her any time set my mind at ease.

Then there were the caretakers - Tanya, Jose and Will - they all helped with anything and everything we needed. We hired a driver for the week (Will) and he was ready to take us into town any time we needed him. All 3 were always working hard to keep everything spotless, and it was honestly kind of wonderful to have the house so clean all the time. They live right on the property, in a small house near the pool. While they were there any time we needed anything, none of us felt like they intruded on our space. At all. And, if you did feel that way, they would absolutely make themselves scarce. They didn’t speak English and my Spanish is quite rusty, but with the help of google translate we all did just fine. We liked them all so much and they are part of the reason our trip was so amazing.

The views are simply breathtaking. You are literally steps from the gorgeous beach. There was boogie boarding every morning. We took surf lessons one day too from instructors that have a shop down on the beach. We ate lunch a few times at the beach restaurants and went into town a bit for dinner, but we also went to the Pali for groceries and cooked a lot since the kitchen was begging to be used.

The house is gorgeous. Everything is exactly like the photos. And so clean and fresh. The view during the day is spectacular, but at nighttime the lighting in the pool area was just heaven. The entire thing was an absolute dream.

The location is about 15 minutes from town, and while it seems a little far away, everyone was so accommodating and it was so easy to get anywhere. All the tours we took picked us up at the house.

There is internet that works everywhere. Even though the power went out a few times we honestly didn’t even notice because of the generator.

It was truly the most fabulous vacation home we have ever stayed in, and on top of that the host Ksenia and caretakers were so kind and quick to tend to anything we needed. I very highly recommend Villa Mariposa, we already can’t wait to go back!

This house was amazing! Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 and a baby and the house was perfect for us. The house was just as beautiful as the pictures. It was the perfect distance from town. The pool was awesome. The view from the deck was very relaxing and the perfect place to watch the sunset. We didn’t rent a car, but we’re able to catch a taxi or shuttle from the beach when we needed to (which wasn’t much because we felt just staying at the house and Remanso beach was vacation enough). We used the house car one day to go to Playa Hermosa and then to dinner at the Black Monkey near the house. The car was very affordable and it was great to have a driver. The caretakers were super nice (even though our Spanish was not good enough). They took good care of us. It was actually nice having them and the night guard around especially when we left the house or walked down to the beach. Ksenia was awesome too! She was very responsive to all our questions before and during our stay. She was very understanding when we needed to change our checkout time a bit due to a misunderstanding of our pickup time and even helped us by calling the shuttle company. None of us wanted to leave...we definitely hope to come back someday!

Two sets of double rainbows set the tone!

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the house and the caretakers when we arrived at dusk. But seeing two sets of double rainbows the next morning really set the mood for our stay!

The house is amazing. The attention to detail in design, construction, furnishings, and maintenance is very impressive. We spent most of our time on the porch or the pool deck. The pool deck lighting at night was glorious. The porch was the perfect place to sip Nica Libres while watching the sunset.

The beautiful beach and the beach restaurants are a short walk. And Tacos Restaurant and Grill even sold us fish fillets for Tania to cook for us.

Tania and Jose take excellent care of the house and grounds and were very welcoming. We also hired Tania to cook two evening meals for us -- delicious!

Owner Ksenia was great throughout. Very quick to respond to emails and answer questions when I was making the arrangements. He even emailed me on our first morning in the house to check in.

The location is a bit remote. That's part of what we loved about it! We stayed for three nights without a vehicle. But our transfer service dropped us off and picked us up without any problems. There were taxis hanging out by the restaurants in case we wanted to go into SJdS (we didn't) so we felt we had an easy option if needed (or we could have hired a driver through Ksenia).

This was unquestionably the best VRBO rental experience I've ever had. We started talking about coming back before we left.
