  • Exceed Expectations!

    "Casa Culebra served as the perfect setting for our worry-free girls’ getaway! The house offered just the right amount of relaxation, adventure, and luxury. For those of you wondering…yes, the pictures are on point when it comes to the clean and comfortable accommodations you expect to see upon arrival. However, keep in mind what you can’t see that takes the experience to a whole new level. The sunrise and sunset views from this house (and throughout the property) were breathtaking, and the infinity pool quickly became part of our sunset ritual. Elisha, our concierge, truly served as our Ambassador! She was beyond helpful when it came to booking excursions or simply offering ‘life in Nica’ advice. This gave us the feeling of being on vacation, but also gave us a little taste of the local scene. We enjoyed 2 evenings in with Chef Adam, which I highly recommend….not only was he a whiz in the kitchen, but he offered comedic commentary in between courses. We also took advantage of surf lessons with Baldo (he should get an award for patience), which was an incredible experience….especially for those of us that surfed for the first time and GOT UP! Last and certainly not least, the groundkeepers and security of the property were very attentive. It was comforting to know that if and when we needed something, they were nearby and promptly provided assistance. I highly recommend a stay at Casa Culebra, and can say without a doubt, that I am looking forward to a return visit in the (hopefully near) future."

  • 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."

  • Beautiful villa with a great view

    "Villa was great and located only a few minute in car from the beach. Villa had all the amenities one could expect. Only down side is the electricity is charged separately (which i knew in advanced) and was quite expensive for 1 week, $215 US. Also the water in the shower will go from burning hot to ice cold every few seconds for the entire lenght of your bath which got a little frustrating and when we called to ask about it they said it was a common problem and no one came to fix it. Other than that the villa is very nice and the pool area is great. I would recommend it to friends"

  • Paradise in the jungle!

    "In the words of Axle Rose, "Welcome to the jungle!" Except the only screaming we heard was from the howler monkeys that came right up to the back balcony of the house and "hung out" with us over dinner (this seriously happened on night three)! Our two young girls (ages 5 and 7) were overjoyed when the monkeys just watched us as they munched on leaves and crashed around on the branches! This place may be in the jungle, but it's an idyllic getaway for young families, or couples. We were a short walk to the common pool (100 yards away) where our kids loved to swim while overlooking the jungle canopy down the hillside! Don't believe the exaggerated reviews of the bugs in the pool. We were staying there a couple weeks later than one reviewer and had a blast in the pool. The ground-keeping guy was excellent and cleaned the pool every day (despite bugs in the jungle, it was super-clean)! The pool is long enough for some laps, while the kids were able to work on their swimming skills (the deepest part is only four feet)! In general, we were so impressed with how clean and well-maintained the grounds were. The house itself is gorgeous! The design is incredibly well adapted to the environment in which it's situated. Coming to Nicaragua from a cooler North American climate, we were expecting to be hot at night in a place that doesn't have air conditioning (the house is made up of an open screen system). However, much to our surprise, the cool evening breezes combined with some well placed fans kept us very comfortable each evening! The fully-functional kitchen was excellent, and we were able to make use of the bbq to grill fresh seafood we bought from the SJDS fish market! Each evening we ate while watching the beautiful Nicaraguan sun set on the ocean horizon below the jungle-covered mountains! The beach was a short drive away, but go at low tide. The Balcones property manager, Gabby, was so helpful when we arrived and frequently checked in on us! She warned us that sometimes we might see scorpions or tarantulas in the house, but we quickly realized that the reason for this is they are often looking for an open door. We just made sure the sliding doors were closed and we never had anything to worry about! Don't get me wrong, you'll see these cool creatures around the property (after all, you are in the jungle baby!), but there's nothing to worry about! The most interesting insect we saw in the house was a six-inch long Praying Mantis on the bug net. Cool!"
