Why Don Weber chose Corn Island

Beautiful location with a simpler lifestyle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“The Crows Nest was such a comfortable, private, and lovely space. It was ON an amazing stretch of beach, where the surf crashed and bubbled at our feet, and where we body surfed and just gazed seaward! Just wow! Helen, the housekeeper, was so helpful, friendly, and welcoming. We slept well (on a comfy mattress, with lots of pillows, and had two breezy fans if we needed them. We also loved all the amenities -- shower, kitchenette, spacious back porch with amazing view, etc. We sure hope to be back to the Crows Nest one day!”

The first three and a half days was heavy rainfall and thunderstorms but had always great food!!!

  • 4 of 5

The start as they cancelled the flight to Big Corn Island and the terrible weather in the first days was hard. You were sitting on a beautiful beach but storms of storms followed. Only the friendly people and the delicious food for breakfast and dinner held us on the island. The last three days showed the island from their beautiful site.

We will miss the wonderful lobster and fish food prepared by Helen. Take something against the mosquito with you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reviews and we want to extend a special thanks that you followed through with your stay despite all the negative reports coming out of Nicaragua. The island is pretty much back to normal for our usual slow/ rainy season. Glad you all came to visit us and hope to see you again.

Tranquil location on a great beach

  • 5 of 5

Very nice quiet place right on a wide, empty sandy beach. Hot water is a big plus, food is great and you can see sunrise at sea from your room.

Great spot !

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Helen was great. Lots of taxis all over the island to get around. You don't need to bring anything, there are lots of excellent restaurants, within walking distance or via cheap taxis. There is a hot plate and toaster oven if you wanted to cook something simple. Helen will pick up anything you need. Cathy never introduced herself to us, and Don wasn't there but overall a really great spot! Great showers, great beaches! Awesome spot!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay,even with the rough start of arriving on the wrong Island. For the benefit future travelers we are "Big Corn Island." Hi Kathy here.I am the one that was at your door helping you work your combination lock and spoke to you on the phone when you called to say you were on Little Corn. That was me Kathy. Thanks for the great review. We love it when people enjoy our place in the sun.

Perfection beach location

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the Tree House and the Crows Nest and it was the perfect family vacation. In keeping with the style and feel of the island, the Crows Nest is the perfect option for staying on Corn Island. Helen, who takes care of things year round does an excellent job. She is an excellent cook, who for a small fee will cook you a meal when you don't want to go out or cook for yourself. Need some laundry done just ask Helen and she will get it done. Without a word of a lie my white t-shirt has never been so white as when Helen washed it. Don and Cathy, who own the property, went all out to make us feel comfortable. It was more like staying with friends than renting at place to stay. The location, right on the beach was the best. In our two weeks there we never saw a better beach.
