JackPot (for us - so if you're like us, you'll LOVE this place!)
I have never been so inspired to write a review (and simultaneously wondering if I should - do I really want you to know how great this place is? Because i'd prefer to have it available for every time - which will be often - that my family wants to go :)). This is not an overly fancy place. Nica Beach House is more rustic, perfectly comfortable, and has the RIGHT luxuries prioritized: the amazing food (if you have Lesbia cook for you) and the pool (pristine, perfectly big, perfect temperature and shade, wonderful for kids and adults). Luis takes wonderful care of the property and it was clean and perfect for us. I'll upload my photos as soon as I figure out how so you can see for yourself. We went as two couples (parents, grandparents) and two small kids and it was all sorts of perfect for us. We will be back so often the caretakers will know us better than the owners :P. I want to eat Lesbia's food every day.
One small area for improvement: It's hot. Nica Beach house recognizes that and has air conditioners in the bedrooms - but two of them need maintenance. And the balcony and ground floor could use fans.
The Home was better than advertised, Jamie was more than helpful throughout. Luis is a lifesaver I would not drive in Managua or the unmarked back roads without Luis, and I have driven many places. Be sure to have Lesbia cook for you when there AWESOME. Luis's brother owns a pizza place and it was soooo good, Luis even picked it up for us. You are about a 15-20 min walk down the beach (go at low tide) from Pochomil hotel (1st restaurant )then Pochomil is say 5-10 past that.. Very quiet Beach if that's what your looking for, which we were. Place is great highly recommend
Definitely Paradise in Nicaragua!
This beach front home far exceeded our expectations. It is very remote and a bit rustic but that adds to the allure and makes it extra special.
I travelled with my wife and 2 kids ages 2 and 4.
Luis met us at the airport and drove our car back to the house which is highly recommended. He'll take you to Pricemart (costco) to get your staples for the week which is a must. It was our first time in Nicaragua and we felt very safe but Luis made it so much more comfortable as he's a really enjoyable guy to be around and a wealth of knowledge.
We hired Luis' sister Lesbia and her cooking was incredible! I wouldn't recommend renting without her. They have a brother that can get you the freshest red snapper I've ever had. We also bought lobster which she prepared and flounder for fresh ceviche.
The house itself was about a 10-15 minute drive down a dirt road from Pochomil/Masachapa. We typically spent most days surfing, lounging in the pool and playing on the beach which can get hot and windy depending on the time of day. Lot's of sun and shade around the pool. It's not a luxurious home but very comfortable, the privacy, exclusiveness and staff are probably the most appealing part. It was very casual as we pretty much lived in our bathing suits. It made for longer days and more time in the water as we didn't have to get ready for lunches and dinners. The beach campfire was so unique and nothing we had done before in the south, the kids loved it.
If your into surfing this is a great spot away from the crowds. Luis is an excellent surfer and always up to join you. He'll even give you lessons if your a beginner so a great spot to learn. There are better breaks within driving distance but it was so convenient being able to walk out from the house. It was a family vacation with the bonus of being able to catch a few waves and not spend the whole day away from them.
We stayed in San Juan Del Sur for the last 4 nights, I've you've never been it's worth checking out but not nearly as authentic as Pochomil. It made us truly appreciate how great our stay was at this beach house.
- Rent a decent car
- Hire Lesbia
- Get fresh seafood
- Order pizza from Luis's and Lesbia's other brother!
- Bring clothes, shoes, baseball gloves, etc. There is a lot of poverty and the country is still very much developing if you can bring items with you to give away the locals appreciate it very much.
Beauty and Relaxing
Everything you could want. Peace, beauty, wonderful people (Luis, Lesbian). Clean and comfy.
Thanks for everything

Multileveled house with lots of space to relax .
My husband and I, our daughter, her husband and our two grandchildren spent two wonderful weeks at the beach house. We arrived from Toronto Canada on a direct flight into Managua where Luis met us at the airport. We rented a vehicle and put him as the primary driver and he became our chauffeur for the next two weeks.
The house is on a very isolated stretch of beach . Don’t let the waves intimidate you. The ocean is amazing as is the pool .
We hired Lesbia to cook for us and she brought out all kinds of wonderful things. Our grandchildren can be picky and so she also made things for them that they liked.
We would recommend this place highly but remember it is a rustic Beachhouse . You will not find any tourists there maybe a few horses and the odd pig . It was an amazing learning experience for us especially our grandchildren .
Wonderful family vacation spot
Our family, including 3 boys ages 11,10, and 4, had a great time at this house. It truly was paradise. The view was amazing, the pool was perfect, the landscape beautiful, and the beach was amazing. It was secluded, quiet, just simply perfect! Luis helped us with anything we needed, he took me to get groceries, answered all our questions, he is so nice. Plus his sister Lesbia is an outstanding cook, she made us huge meals with the best sauces I have ever had. Definitely a place we would like to back to! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
