  • Amazing view and great location!

    "We've stayed at Casa Irie more times than I can count! The house is very comfortable and has everything you need for a great vacation. Its a short drive or pleasant walk to town or the beach, but far enough from town to be peaceful in the evenings. The pool is hands down the best we've seen in NIcaragua! The view of sunsets over the Pacific is AMAZING. Also the caretakers are very hospitable. We've loved every vacation we've had at Casa Irie."

  • Beautiful beach and abode

    "Staying in this beachfront property on Playa Coco was certainly a treat and definitely the highlight of our family's trip to Nicaragua! We absolutely loved it! The house is clean, spacious, and very comfortable for a family of six. The complex has a pool that is very well kept and the grounds are beautifully maintained as well. The beach is secluded and peaceful, featuring amazing waves that are perfect for playing around in, surfing, and boogie boarding. The beach is adorned with a variety of beautiful sea shells that are fun to look for and the sunsets are absolutely breath taking! This rental is great for a couple's retreat or for the whole family!"

  • 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."

  • Overall - a good vacation!

    "Overall, we loved our time in SJDS. The house is in a good location, just a short ride outside of town (we had rented a 4 wheel drive pickup - which I'd recommend). It was a good size for our family of 5, and we really enjoyed the pool and relaxing in the hammocks. The house is also near very nice beaches and local zip line attractions. There were a few things we were surprised by, but they weren't really the fault of the house. For example, we were without power in the house almost every night. It wasn't related to the house, but it would have been nice to know that this happens. Not only is it quite hot at night, but the air conditioners in the bedrooms also help to mask the dogs barking, roosters crowing, or horns honking. I don't know if power outages occur that regularly, but they did the week we were there (one for about 11 hours). A suggestion we'd give would be to provide a cell phone and internet service for an additional fee. A cell phone is provided upon arrival, but it worked sporadically (and ultimately not at all) and I ended up using my own in order to get a hold of the property manager. Internet is also provided, but it requires a trip into town in order to provide a router number, purchase airtime, etc. We tried on a couple of different occasions, but were never successful in getting wifi. Again, not the end of the world (it was actually nice to be disconnected) - just a suggestion that we'd have been willing to pay more to have this set up. Also, there is a care taker on site which can throw you off a bit at first, but we really appreciated having him there. He was very nice, very helpful, and we appreciated his service. Overall, we really enjoyed staying here. It was a very private location, a nice house, and and it provided our family with a vacation we are sure to not forget. We would definitely consider staying here again if we visit SJDS in the future."
