We had a great time at Nel and Joop's place, overlooking Lago Masaya. She was very helpful with tips about the area and present just enough and not too much. We were happy to contribute to the social effort of employing local people on the property. We LOVED making juice every day with freshly picked oranges from the garden. The house is very appropriately equipped for all you might need. Do make sure you purchase the food you'll want before heading up from Masatepe because you are not going to want to leave!
The communication before and during our stay with the owners was fantastic, they were extremely helpful and detailed not only with regard to the house, but with recommendations on places, activities and transportation.
We had a truly unique experience, which is what I was looking for.. It took us a bit to adjust to the drive to the house, staying in an limited electricity, and no a/c home, but these were all things we knew about when booking the house, were part of the overall experience in the end, and we figured it out quickly.
The location, view, and design of the house are all amazing and unique. My only request would have been to have screens on the doors so that you could leave those open without worries of letting bugs and critters in, but I am sure there are reasons I am not aware of for whey that may not be possible.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience Nicaragua from you amazing home, and giving us great memories of a fantastic trip.
