  • Stunning

    "We spent an unforgettable month in San Juan del Sur and it was mainly due to the wonderful accommodations at Casa Mari and the people we met. Maritza was excellent with her correspondence and everything went without a hitch. The home is beautiful and well taken care of. Maria is a very efficient and a lovely person. Raul is helpful with anything that needs taking care of. They made the stay extremely comfortable. It's just a short walk to any part of town. The swimming pool at the house is a wonderful way to spend the heat of the day. There are suites on the bottom floor of the home but are separate"

  • 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!"

  • Awesome

    "What a fantastic place. Perfectly off the beaten track but not too far from Managua, Pochomil is the perfect getaway spot. Luis was waiting for us at the airport, organised our car hire and drove us to the coast, couldn't have been easier. Luis was a star throughout, nothing was too much trouble and he came surfing with us everyday, showing us new spots when the beach break in front of the house was a little heavy. He also took us for fresh fish and lobster (via his brother) and lovely fruit and vegetables. They were all transported back to Lesbia who would magic them into fresh cerviche or fillets for lunch and dinner. The kids adored Luis and Lesbia and the holiday just wouldn't have been the same without them! Nothing was too much trouble and waking up to fresh coffee, fruit and the sound of waves crashing is exactly how the day should start. The villa itself is perfect, the pool maintained beautifully and a direct walk onto the expansive beach. The broad beach is sandy but with lots of shells to collect and rock pools to explore. Just perfect to wonder along. We will definitely be back."
