First Time to Nicaragua. What a beautiful property .
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the tree house. We went to Rancho Santana for dinner that Gerald the house manager arranged for our 35th anniversary.
I highly recommend going there it was absolutely beautiful and great food. We also went fishing one day and only caught 2 fish but was a nice boat ride to see the coast line.. The beach was great and the bar tenders were really great guys.
We got to see turtles hatch and be released and 3 different mornings there was new turtle nest that had been made over night..Gerald also brought motorcycle to the house for my husband to ride.and set up a massage for myself 2 different times at the house that was great
We will definitely be returning. We met lots of great people all very nice.
Thanks for sharing your home.

My husband and I stayed here with our 10 year old daughter for 5 nights in March 2018. First off, the pictures do not do this place justice. This home, and the others surrounding it are high-end homes with gated security. The owners are amazing to work with - offering us great travel tips, etc., prior to our stay. We quickly settled into a routine while at the treehouse: breakfast on the deck (where we saw monkeys every morning, and dolphins in the water), spent the mornings on the beach, lunch at the house where we would then play in the pool for about 2-3 hours before heading back to the beach to play some more and watch the beautiful sunset. This was our daily routine for 5 days. We considered taking a boat to San Juan but simply couldn't bring ourselves to leave. The beach is beautiful and clean; very safe. One day we wandered over to Gigante just to say we went to another beach, and it was beautiful and sandy and had nice, calm waves (although a bit of a trash problem as, it seems, all of Nicaragua struggles with). Before settling into the treehouse, I would recommend stocking up on groceries at Colonial, because, really...you won't want to leave this place! The treehouse has a fully stocked kitchen with purified water available to you. Gerald, the house manager, speaks English very well and is very helpful if you need anything! Prior to staying at the treehouse, we spent 3 nights in Grenada doing all our travel adventures there, so having the treehouse at the back end of our trip was perfect. I have never seen my husband so relaxed. When I first booked this place, I thought "really, am I actually going to see monkeys here?" But, yes, you will see lots of monkeys. One large male came down to our pool one morning and took a long drink of water. We saw babies even. It was just the three of us staying here, but a large family would be very comfortable. I imagine this being an ideal getaway for a large family at Christmastime. What a dream come true!
Relaxing in paradise.
Superb accommodations and friendly happy people. Great views accompanied with sounds of the ocean and an abundance of wildlife. We fell in love with Nicaragua, its people and the oceanfront tree house. Recommend a visit. We look forward to returning.
Beautiful House in a great location
We stayed here for a week in February. The house was beautiful! It had gorgeous views of the ocean and monkeys that came and sat in the trees every morning. The Beach was less than a 5 minute walk away. The beach is shared with the aqua wellness resort, so you just follow a stone path down to the beach. The Beach was usually quite deserted, so it was nice to have it almost to ourselves. There is a small pool at the house that we enjoyed using when not at the beach.
Gerald, the house manager, spoke English well. He was willing to help us with whatever we needed.
We did day trips to popoyo, sjds, Granada and masaya volcano. We had a great trip. Thank you for your hospitality.
Excellent and beautiful home
For the price and location, this house is absolutely worth it. One of the best houses I have stayed at in all of Nicaragua, and I've stayed in many. The house comes stocked with most things you might need and is absolutely gorgeous. If you're planning to go to San Juan del Sur a lot, it may not be ideal because it is rather far from the city, but for a quiet, peaceful getaway, this house is ideal. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Sightseeing and shopping in historic Granada, Masaya Market and San Juan del Sur. Visit Masaya and Mombacho volcanoes, and Ometepe Island. Zipline tours can be arranged. Boats for hire in Gigante for deep sea fishing or coastal excursions. Iguana Golf Course is nearby.

About Ron Vaught
We love the excitement of travel, but find our Nica home to be the perfect place to slow down and savor the moment. Nicaragua's beauty rivals anywhere we've visited, but the relaxed pace of living is what really appeals to us. Whether it's lingering over a fresh seafood dinner or strolling the beach, time and summer seem endless in Nicaragua.
Ron Vaught purchased this House in 2005
Why Ron Vaught chose El Gigante
We have traveled much of the world, but until visiting Nicaragua never considered owning property abroad. Nicaragua is a well kept secret - we're happy to share it and invite you to experience the beauty of this diverse and welcoming country.
