Even better the second year in a row!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our families ( 3 adults and 4 kids: ages 15, 10, 7 and 3 years old) second time at this fabulous house and the entire trip exceeded our expectations again!!!!!! For the relaxing days at the house- the pool was always crystal clear and was maintained by Luis. The miles and miles of walking on the beach and collectin sea shells- who could ask for anything more. If you want to stay at the house and just relax: everything is there for your comfort- beach toys , floaties for the pool,hammocks to swing in relax, boogie and surf boards. The beach is only a step out of backyard, where we saw many turtles come onto the sand to lay eggs. Secluded, is the best way to describe the beach- there was NO one ever on the beach.

***each bedroom/suite in this house has air conditioning and a full washroom. The linens and the towels are all provided. There are any different sitting area throughout the house: 2 sitting areas and two table ares on the main floor. Upstairs there is a outdoor couch set for a sitting area and a table and chairs.

However, if you want to adventure through the country, Luis is always willing to help out in whatever you want to do. We did many days trips into different towns and went to the active volcano during the night- its worth the 15 minutes that they only allow you to be at the top of the volcano. San Juan Del Sur is a definite must for the surfing and the restaurants on the beach.

I cannot praise Luis enough, whatever we asked him to do he wouldn't hesitate - from running into town to buy ice, driving you husband to the gym every morning and to getting his wonderful wife to bake my mom a delicious birthday cake. Luis, definitely looked after us and treated us like part of our family and now we think of him as part of our family. Luis, taught all of our kids how to surf. Our kids all looked forward to seeing Luis every morning, watering the plants or cleaning the pool.

I wouldn't stay anywhere but Pochomil in Nicaragua , it is off of the beaten path of the tourist and it's absolutely beautiful. I would come back year after year.

The owner, Jamie, is very helpful and answers all of your questions before and during your trip. Thank you, Jamie for letting us rent your fantasic home and thank you Luis for helping us have a relaxing but adventurous family vacation. Our family will definitely be coming back to this house for another vacation.

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

The beach, the house, the pool, the food, the cook and the helper were all top notch. The cook, Lesbia, who can be hired at a very reasonable cost, is so worth it. She cooks whatever food you’ve bought in a variety of ways with a variety of tasty sauces. We found it so wonderful to not have to figure out meals, prep and prepare, and were able to enjoy happy hour on the balcony to watch the fabulous sunsets. Luis, helped in so many ways (ordering taxis, driving our u-drive, shopping with us, bought our fresh fish, shrimp and lobster for us from local fishers). His flexibility and openness was so appreciated and his driving skills excellent. Fresh fruits and vegetables can also be purchased locally. The private pool is wonderful. It’s cleaned daily by Luis. It’s so refreshingly cool for all hours of the 30C daily high temps, plus it’s a great place to visit with each other. The house has 3 bedrooms, with separation to allow for privacy. It has a number of outdoor seating areas for dining, visiting or private reading. The WiFi is excellent. We had power outages that lasted for brief periods only; affecting a broad region (not just the beach house). It’s in a beach house area and has roving nighttime security. The beach: endless, very few people on it, local fishers at low tides, sea shells galore. Swimming in the ocean in front of the beach house is best at low tide in order to be aware of rocks to either side. Although it’s in a stretch of beach houses, it is a 30-40 minute walk (depending on your pace and the tide) to the village of Pochomil by walking along the beach. Supermarkets are considerably further distant and require a vehicle (u-drive or by local taxi) to access. The sunsets are spectacular! We had a fantastic lengthy stay at Nica Beach House.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

One cannot say enough great things about the beach house. Luis and Lesbia are great. We show up with some groceries from the Pali in San Rapheal (hit a bigger store if at all possible) and the next thing you know Lesbia has whipped up an incredible dinner with what we had brought in. Luis would pick up fish and lobster and we would have that for dinner and fish tacos the next day at lunch. The property was clean and well maintained. The pool was great. AC in every room. Wifi and TV(not that you need them) were available and working. Hammocks in the shade and sunsets every night. The beach was expansive. Go a few 100 meters south and there is nothing but surf and sand for 40km. Not a soul in sight.

Easy to get to from Managua but felt like a world away. Luis was incredibly responsive to any questions. Lesbia would just laugh at our Spanish. Great pools at low tide and regenerating waterfalls with every break of the waves. The owner was quick with responses to all our questions. We highly recommend this rental if you are in Nicaragua.

Unexpected paradise for 3 weeks

  • 5 of 5

Booking this house right from the start was a excellent experience. Jamie answered every single question I sent to him and had lots of suggestions on how to spend our time in Nicaragua. Luis met our family (my husband, our 4 kids- 14,9,6,2, my mom and I) at the airport and we felt like we were being met by a family member. Luis helped my husband through the process of retrieving our rental van and then we were off to the house in the pitch dark. We drove down a bump gravel road and Luis opened up the large gate to the property . Luis stopped the van and our kids ran towards the house in the darkness- all I heard was my boys yelling this house is the best house!!!!!! I walked through all the flowering trees and heard the ocean crashing and felt a sense of ease. The main floor is all open and u can see and hear the ocean from anywhere. There are two large sitting areas and a large table that we fit 6 ppl at- which Luis shared lots of family suppers w us. There is also another beautiful wooden table which sits 4 ppl. There is a full bedroom(queen bed and full washroom) w air conditioning. On the second level there is a separate full bedroom(queen bed and washroom) w air conditioning. Then there is a large separate apartment style room with a bedroom(queen), full washroom, w a huge living room- full sofa set and futon this entire space has air conditioning. The upstairs has a lanai that covers the back of the house, which has a full sitting area and hammocks that overlooks the ocean. There is so much to do at the house and steps out of the backyard. Luis kept the pool absolutely perfect for us. The walks every morning on the beach to masachpa and back became a beautiful routine collecting shells. It then became a mission to collect sand dollars whenever we saw them. Luis was absolutely awesome w everything and never hesitated to take us anywhere-he drove us to Mangua, Leon, Granada, SAn Juan del Sur. Luis taught all of us to surf, he even saved my 9 year old from drowning while he was surfing. Luis took us to the beautiful waterfalls twice, which was a breath taking experience. We bought fish from his brother on several occasions. It was my moms birthday while we were on our vacation and Luis's wife baked my mom a cake that she will always remember. Everyday we were there we saw turtles on the beach laying their eggs, AMAZING!!. Luis also made it Possible for us to have a bomb fire on the beach. U r off the beaten path. Experiences=unforgettable!!!!!

What a fantastic place. Perfectly off the beaten track but not too far from Managua, Pochomil is the perfect getaway spot.

Luis was waiting for us at the airport, organised our car hire and drove us to the coast, couldn't have been easier. Luis was a star throughout, nothing was too much trouble and he came surfing with us everyday, showing us new spots when the beach break in front of the house was a little heavy. He also took us for fresh fish and lobster (via his brother) and lovely fruit and vegetables. They were all transported back to Lesbia who would magic them into fresh cerviche or fillets for lunch and dinner. The kids adored Luis and Lesbia and the holiday just wouldn't have been the same without them! Nothing was too much trouble and waking up to fresh coffee, fruit and the sound of waves crashing is exactly how the day should start.

The villa itself is perfect, the pool maintained beautifully and a direct walk onto the expansive beach. The broad beach is sandy but with lots of shells to collect and rock pools to explore. Just perfect to wonder along.

We will definitely be back.

What a vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (four boys ages 3-8) just had an amazing week in Nicaragua!! The home is wonderful - right on the beach and has a great size pool. The property is clean and safe. We just loved Luis and Lesbia!!! The boys were never bored - digging in the sand, jumping in the waves, collecting shells and sand dollars, swimming in the pool, naps in the hammocks, eating Lesbia's wonderful cooking, riding ATVs with Luis down the beach, horse back riding, running into town to buy fresh fish, building a bond fires at night or trying to climb the palm trees for cocos!! The beach is almost empty and the sunsets are amazing! Jamie was very kind and easy to work with. Luis took us to two different days trips and really showed us around. We brought clothes and school supplies and were able to distribute them at the local school. Looking for a special vacation - this is your spot! Hope to return next year!
