Perfect Paradise Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

The most amazing vacation EVER! From surf, to sea turtles, to siesta!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Tranquila and actually extended our stay by a few days because we could not bring ourselves to leave. The resort next store boasted everything you could ask for. They provide three (delicious and local) a day, beverages, and snacks. We choose to do our own cooking mostly, as the kitchen is fully equipped. Janelle, the property manager, had her husband, who is a fisherman, bring us fresh fish on multiple occasions.

The most magical part of the trip was releasing the baby sea turtles. We waited only a few days until one morning, just after sunrise, a guard yelled to us "TORTUGAS! TORTUGAS!" ("turtles!"). Our whole family, as well as the families staying at Los Cardones, hand released nearly 70 tiny sea turtles. It was amazing.

The house is absolutely perfect. Evening without AC it stayed cool through the night. The bathrooms were beautiful and spacious and very CLEAN! The kitchen has everything you need, just bring food! The furnishings are adorable. We ate all of our meals on the porch that faced the ocean. We took siestas in the many hammocks of both Casa Tranquila and Los Cardones.

Casa Tranquila even has its own "manual," which was full of things to do in the area! Our two teenage girls soaked up every minute.

Overall, it was the most magical place we have ever been. Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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/ 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.
