Why Tim & Anya Schwarz chose Nicaragua

We visited Nicaragua in spring of 2014 and instantly fell in love with the area. We knew it was a place where we could bring our family to relax and get away from it all (and also escape some of the cold Montana winters)

What makes this house unique

Our decision to purchase Gran Cielo was reached after spending some time in the area. The owners of Surf Sanctuary could not be any more welcoming. We loved that our house would be secure and within such a great resort. Having so many amenities on site was a huge plus and being right along the beach didn't hurt! Gran Cielo is house where you feel comfortable in immediately and we had some special features added to the kitchen to make it our own.

Big house; lots of breeze

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the house. Unfortunately we didn't use the kitchen much, but I'm sure if we had, everything would have worked. We did appreciate that there were trash bags and coffee filters provided, lots of dishes and glasses, silverware, and a cover maker (which we used every day).

The AC was great in the rooms but didn't really spread to the rest of the place. Fortunately, the wind was so strong that we were able to just leave the windows open and have the breeze keep the place somewhat cool.

The house is located in Surf Sanctuary, which is pretty cool because you get use of the ammenities: pool, hammocks, restaurant, covered game area, yoga twice a week. Also, the people working there are friendly and nice to talk to. Below were our only complaints:

1) When we had friends come over just for an hour or so we were told they could stay at the house but not use any of the Surf Sanctuary ammenities. While I get this, in concept, we were also only 2 people staying in a house that could have housed 5, so we felt like it should have been okay for our friends to use the ammenities while there for just a few hours. (Eventually while the guys went surfing, me and the other girl--a friend of ours--was able to use the pool and hammocks.)

2) The house is located pretty far from the beach (and by that it's really just a 7-10 minute walk), but when you're going out to surf multiple times a day it gets a bit long. Otherwise, you're really close to 2 delicious pizza places and only probably 20 minutes away from a local market.

3) You can't get wireless internet in the house itself; you have to go to the pool area at the Surf Sanctuary to be able to use it.

4) There is no tv in the house. (This is INCREDIBLY MINOR, but something to mention.)

Generally speaking though, we would definitely consider staying here again :)
