  • Amazing Family Vacation!

    "Our family of five (2 adults and three kids ages 13, 13, 15) stayed at Villas Playa Maderas (Palmeras) for a week in March 2016. Our experience with this rental well exceeded our expectations in every way (and we had high expectations). To start with, Richardo was excellent to work with on the booking and payment. He was very accommodating and offered advice about the best time to come, transportation, meals, etc...the villa itself is exactly as described in the posting - yet, in many ways it is indescribable. The sunsets, the warm breeze off the water, the view, the sounds of the breaking waves, etc... Are difficult to put into words. The house was perfect for us in every way. It's open design was nice and yet everyone had their own privacy. The pool was absolutely perfect, clean, and refreshing and the view...is epic. Sharing the pool with another villa is no problem at all - we had a couple of neighbors and had a nice time getting to know them. And, the pool is plenty big. The location of the villas is fairly remote yet perfectly positioned between two fantastic beaches. The walk to the sand is 144 steps down the hill to the water. Maybe 2-3 minutes. Playa Maderas is only a short beach walk away where there are a couple nice restaurants with good food and cold beer. The beach is clean and beautiful. The surf shop at playa Maderas rents surf boards and most people go there to surf. We rented boards for about $5 for a couple hours. Lastly, the villa staff are really what makes the villa an amazing place to stay. Marie was very helpful / friendly and responded quickly to every request. She arranged for a couple of different staff members to cook for us for four nights - this was such a treat. The food was fantastic and very Nica authentic. Freshly caught fish, beans, rice, fresh veggies...wow. The security staff are very professional and friendly although their English is not very good - I tried to practice my Spanish pretty much every day and we often had a good laugh at my poorly articulated words. We felt very safe at all times - never a concern for us at all. Also, SJDS is a short taxi ride away and there's lots to do and see there. In general - I would highly recommend the Villas Playa Maderas for a family getaway as it really does have it all - the house, pool, beach, staff, and the view were all unforgettable."

  • Fabulous home with incredible hospitality, views, and location!

    "We stayed one week at Casa Miramar in San Juan Del Sur and it was an amazing stay. From the beginning, communication with the owner was great and once we arrived the rental manager, Ingrid was SO helpful with everything from booking day trips to recommendations in town to helping us with any questions regarding the home. The outdoor area is unreal -- fun pool with beautiful views and lounge areas. The bedrooms are large and definitely enough space for families. MUST MUST get the meal plan which including breakfast every morning, a few lunches and dinners --- fresh produce, juices, meats, etc. It was definitely the highlight. Also, the staff is so sweet and helpful. The housekeepers cleaned every day and Ofel helped with any issues -- light bulb out, etc. The home is also only a 5 minute walk to town -- convenient yet you get privacy all at the same time. There's two villas on the property -- 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom. We stayed in the 2 bedroom and the other villa was occupied as well. But, we had no issues with them and the outdoor space which we shared was big enough for all of us to enjoy. LOVE LOVE."

  • Excellent location, close to everything, yet feels private.

    "We spent a full month in this cosy house and felt very secure thanks to the constant guards at the entrance. The personal working here was really nice, special mention to Roberto and Felix. The house is part of a 5 houses complex, all side by side. This house is the last on the right and has great space with hammock and 2 sets of table and chairs to enjoy the outside private terrace. Also enjoyed the outside space behind the house to hand-wash our clothes (other options are available to have someone wash your clothes in town). We used the swimming pool almost everyday and it was long enough to swim. Some issues every 3 o 4 days about the water quality but it was always taken care of promptly. Going to the beach is as simple as crossing the street. This beach is perfect for a family like ours. Easy and regular waves. Coming back home we could use the hoses to rince off before getting into the house. The house itself is fully furnished and has about everything we needed. Beds are comfortable, AC works fine and there are sufficient fans as well. Internet is working most of the time just fine. I will conclude saying the communication was easy with the owners and I would definitively recommend this place for anyone visiting San Juan del Sur."

  • great place to unwind and enjoy the idyllic surroundings

    "I have stayed at costa dulce for a couple days and Im impressed with the secluded and idyllic location. Im currently staying in the "Big Bungalow" which is located right ontop of the hill, overviewing beautiful Playa Escameca. The Bungalow is rather spaceous with a big fan in the middle of the room, a double bed and 3 extra beds. Waking up to a sunrise view, the oceans whooshing and the birds singing is a daily pleasure here and I absolutely love it! The beach feels like a private beach due to its "C" shape and the hills cupping it at each side. You can surf, lay by the water and relax with absolutely nobody disturbing you! If you are into yoga you will absolutely be in awe of the yoga shala overviewing the beach- there is no better feeling that practicing in a space that is open and surrounded to nature like this is. The kitchen staff will prepare three homecooked meals daily for you, using local and fresh ingridients. Heylin, the night staff guy, is such a sweatheart, he will help you with anything you need. Due to its secluded location make sure to get here before sunset. the trail that gets you here is not lightened and you might have a hard time getting here. Overall I will say this place is an amazing place to unwind and relax!"
