Great place to relax and enjoy beautiful beach and surf
The property was nice. The airflow was little stagnant and made it very warm sleeping. Ended up sleeping outside in hammock. The adjoining surf hotel was hit and miss on friendliness. Depending who was working it could be very pleasant or you were made to feel unwelcome to be hanging out. However, most people were incredibly nice. Janelle and Dan were awesome. Without them and their knowledge the trip would have been much less enjoyable. We were going to rent car but after learning about the local law enforcement supplementing their income by extorting gringos we decided to pass on car rental. This was a disappointment. We really like exploring local towns. Nicaragua needs to address this issue. Overall, great trip. Again a huge thanks to Janelle and Dan!!
Perfect Paradise Beach Vacation
Myself and a group of seven friends came to Finca del Mar in July. We rented Casa Tranquila and the neighboring house, Casa Pelicanos. Both houses were beautiful and very nice. The homes in Finca del Mar would be nice by U.S. standards and they are quite luxurious compared to most of what you find in Nicaragua. These houses are just a 2 minute walk from Los Cardones along a shaded stone path where you might see the occasional passing Iguana. Los Cadones is an Eco Surf Lodge serving amazing food morning, noon, and night. The beach here is very beautiful and there are hardly any people on it. The busiest day at the beach had only about dozen people. But one of the best parts of any stay in Finca del Mar is dealing with Janelle, the property manager. She is incredibly attentive and friendly and always a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend a visit to Finca del Mar and the Los Cardones Surf Lodge.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed our home and piece of paradise! Hope you can come again🌴
Perfect in every way!
The house was perfect. Very clean, lots of towels, nice sheets and nice pillows, nice big bathrooms and big showers, beautiful king beds with comfortable mattresses, well equipped kitchen, great outdoor eating area, just perfect! It's literally right next to Los Cardonnes, where they have great food, yoga, surfing, lounge areas and a view and access to the beautiful beach. The caretaker, Janelle is wonderful and so helpful. Her husband took us fishing and we cooked and ate the most delicious dinners all week. The closest supermarket is very far, but Janelle was nice enough to pick up a few things that we forgot to grab on our big shop upon arrival. She hand delivered homemade baked goods to us twice that were amazing. She and her family are wonderful, so helpful and they were always available to answer any questions and help us in any way. We highly recommend Casa Tranquila and like the other reviews say, it is truly a gem and will not disappoint! Can't wait to hopefully return someday! Maddie
Best trip ever!
We had such a fabulous stay at Casa Tranquila. The house was great for us, 2 adults and 2 kids. It had everything we needed. It was really nice to be so close to Los Cardones EcoLodge and the beach! I can say enough about Janelle. She is far and beyond the best property caretaker/manager I have come across. She really made the experience truly the best.
Worth A Visit, Worth A Lifetime
Casa Tranquila is a fantastic place to "get away from it all." This beautiful home sits within a stones throw to the majestic Pacific and is replete with a fine ocean view. There is incredible surfing to be had on the warm waves on this secluded stretch of beach. You will pretty much have miles of uninhabited beachfront and the dynamic surf breaks all to yourself. Los Cardones Surf Lodge is right next door and offers up a chance to mingle with a few other friendly, like-mined world travelers, plus you'll be able to grab some tasty eats.
The house itself is beautiful, simple and elegant. It is very well-designed, tastefully decorated and is extremely well taken care of. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The ceiling fans provide a gentle, quiet breeze as you drift off to sleep in this tropical paradise. The outdoor eating area and hammocks are where it's at. You'll spend ample time swaying in those as you admire the starry night sky in pure wonder.
Can't say enough about this place... After a day, you'll wish you could call it home for life. Do yourself a favor and book this place now without any further hesitation - you absolutely will not regret it!
Casa Tranquila was a wonderful place to stay for 5 nights. I work a ton and just needed to relax.....this was the perfect place for it. Los Cardones Eco Surf Lodge is so close, had excellent food and we sat in their hammocks during the hot parts of the afternoon enjoying breezes from the ocean. The house is very roomy and we felt very safe. The most best part was the AMAZING property manager - Janelle. She greeted us when we got in late at night, gave us an orientation to the house, and was very responsive when we needed things (e.g., we ran out of propane on night). I can't say enough good things about how welcome Janelle made us feel. And Casa Tranquila was awesome - my only request would be that they put in A/C.....it was hot but we survived under the ceiling fans in each room + hung out at Los Cardones during the hot times of the day. I look forward to returning with my daughter.
