Fantastic Stay at Fort Walker

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our week long stay at Fort Walker over the New Year's holiday was spectacular. James, David and Iian of Nicaragua365 were available to get us whatever we needed during our stay, and Andrea's cooking was delicious and plentiful (the meal plan is excellent value and the food is wonderful). Nicaragua365’s high level of service and quick response times to requests make everything easier while you are there. It is difficult to describe how beautiful the house is. We had 9 people ranging from ages 5 to 65, and we were all comfortable with plenty of room to spread out. The pool is huge, and literally right on the beach. The Wifi worked great, so we were able to stream music all day long while sitting at the pool and enjoying the view, and watching the surfers. In the afternoons we enjoyed napping on the multiple hammocks throughout the house. Iian arranged surf lessons, in-house massages, and horseback riding on the beach (the horses literally galloped up to the house and picked up my 5 year old daughter!). A few of us did Yoga at the Yoga retreat that is a few minutes by foot down the beach. Hacienda Iguana feels very remote (in a good way) and tranquil, but with all of the conveniences that you need while away for a week (small convenience store, a couple of small restaurants, a surf shop, etc.). I highly recommend you rent a golf cart to drive around the property to visit the few little shops and restaurants, or to visit the small beach club that has a pool, a laid back restaurant and little bar right on the beach. Nicaragua365 provided us with everything we could have asked for on this trip, and Fort Walker and Hacienda Iguana made for the perfect family vacation.

Exceeds All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was stunning and amazing, but the service and people at Nicaragua365 are what made this vacation truly remarkable. I stay at vacation rentals all over several times a year, and Fort Walker was the first time I left finding it very difficult to find anything negative to say or anything that needed improvement. The communication before, during, and after our stay was amazing from arranging transport to the property to making sure we made it home safely. Iain served as our concierge and made sure we were stocked up with everything we needed and was easily accessible with even the most random requests at all hours. The house is situated in a tranquil area of the resort conveniently located right on Panga Drops. Surfing was as easy as waking up and walking outside. They even have surfboards of all sizes you can rent at the house! The beach itself isn't crowded at all giving way to nice walks up to the cliff or down to Playa Colorado. The cleaning and cooking staff was extremely friendly making us feel comfortable with them being around all day. Absolutely recommend the meal plan. Cecilia's cooking was amazing and we never went hungry. The house itself was very specious and had plenty amenities to make sure you have a good time including Wifi, satellite, bluetooth speaker, hammocks and of course the infinity pool which we took advantage of every day and night. I would 100% percent recommend this property and the services that N365 provides to anyone looking for an amazing and relaxing vacation.

Great Location and Staff

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the "off Season" of October. There was a hurricane in the Caribbean for the first 2 days of our trip. The staff was EXCELLENT checking on us and assuring we were safe. The house is magnificent and solid. Once the weather cleared we we treated to 10-16ft surf with no one in the water. We ordered the catering plan Lobster, Steak, Fish were all fabulous. I will be back!

Fisher Family

  • 5 of 5

Five stars in every possible category. Our stay here exceeded every expectation we had by far. The house, and grounds are absolutely beautiful, thanks to an amazing friendly staff, who by the end of our short stay, were more like part of the family, and we will miss. To top things off we scored incredible surf. (our main reason for this location). The only downside of this stay was having to leave. This is our first trip to Nicaragua, so we transferred to another house in San Juan Del Sur for another experience. This is where I am writing this from. The house is nice, as well as the staff, but the whole family agrees next time we will stay the entire time at fort walker. Ian, Kerenia, Jolman, Edjuardo thank you for making this a wonderful experience for the entire family. We will truly miss you guys.
