  • Can't get any better

    "The location is great, the rooms are great, the pictures don't do the spaciousness justice. It is bright and very open. A horse back ride on Kieth's ranch should be mandatory-the horses are gentle and sure-footed. Our hosts are gracious and helpful, they treat you like old friends. The staff are great and friendly. The two k. Beach is across the road. The only thingwrongwiththis is my poor Spanish. We are halfway through our two week stay and definitely thinking seriously about returning next year-all eight of us"

  • Wonderful house, perfect distance from town

    "This is a beautiful property, kept spotless by the caretakers. The owners have invested in nice furniture, dishes and linens; a pleasant surprise in Nicaragua. . The views are stunning and the pool was the perfect way to play away an afternoon. The location is the perfect place if you want the quiet of the wilderness but still have easy access to town. It was 5-10 min drive to town depending on congestion. The beds are extremely firm like all mattresses in Nicaragua. The house is high on the hill, so it catches the breezes easily and on most nights the air conditioning is not necessary, Having the option was a nice perk on muggy nights. My only wish is that there were a screen to pull at night to keep out the stray cats and minimize the critters. After dark the living area was not enjoyable because of all the insects attracted to the lights. We will come back!"

  • Wonderful Place!

    "If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay while in the very small fishing village of Jiquillio then Casa De Portugales is the place! We loved it here and wished we would have stayed longer. It was great to rent the surfboards for the week so we could just use them when we wanted. The kitchen has everything you will need, its clean, and well appointed. The owners arranged a ride from the airport which also took us to a large grocery store in a nearby town so we could get provisions for the week. I suggest planning your meals ahead of time and make a shopping list. Fresh fruits and vegetables could be purchased off trucks that roll through town every other day or so. Some small things like sweet drinks and junk food can be purchased at nearby stores run out of family homes. We started in the 2 bedroom house (we have 2 teenagers) but switched to the one bedroom. The one bedroom has a great vibe: color scheme, floor to ceiling windows, privacy, a patio with seating....it was really great. The kids slept in the bedroom and my husband and I had the double bed in the living room which was fine. The beds were pretty comfortable. Jiquillio is very small with no public services (trash, water) so be prepared for that! Water is delivered by truck and the caretaker who is always on site takes care of everything and is happy to help. The property is clean but the area itself has a LOT of trash everywhere. There is good food at Rancho Esperanza and descent food at Cafe Pacifico. We arranged a beach horse riding trip and a fishing trip through Bodhi which was really great. The surf was good for beginners with a nice sandy bottom. Spend a day observing the tides to see whats up. My daughter and I had boogie boards which was perfect. Its extremely hot in Jiquillio so plan to have siesta time every afternoon to get through it. Hammocks on the property are lovely and the fans in the house are an absolute necessity. I cant say enough about the beach! We had it practically to ourselves and of course the Pacific sunsets are amazing. To the north is the town and the fishing boats which are very interesting to watch being launched. To the south it is completely undeveloped and goes on for miles. This area of the beach is surprisingly clean! And to the north beyond the town is also quite deserted and clean as well. This house and Jiquillio is definitely a place we would love to go back!"

  • Perfection

    "Casa Colina was the perfect choice for our San Juan Del Sur vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this little town, and house. Catalina was great to us, would definitely recommend taking full advantage."
