Heidi was very accommodating and welcoming. Not only did she make us a delicious, healthy breakfast, but she gave us a lot of tips and advice on what to do in San Juan. We even went out and enjoyed a killer concert right next to the beach! By the end of the short trip we felt like close friends :) Thanks for an incredible experience in San Juan del Sur Heidi! Hope to see you again soon!

Heidi is an amazing host. Both myself and my companion had trouble with the heat and she was always positive and helpful even when we were sick. Her house is amazing and she truly knows all there is to know about the area. She's a true local who loves her home in Nicaragua I have much respect for how she runs her business . Hasta luego Chica :)

Heidi was a wonderful host. Very welcoming and positive. She tried her very best to figure out a way to get us surfing, but the winds were not in our favor. Instead we lounged by the pool and enjoyed the local nearby restaurants. Great place for quiet relaxation. Thanks a bunch!

Hola, I´m Sha - Heidi. I´m a certified yoga teacher YTT500 & Thai Massage Body Worker. My days are filled with the love for the ocean and the peace of the jungle. Surfing, paddle boarding, doing yoga, cooking, photography, traveling, energy healing, life coaching, and guiding people through Nicaragua are my passions. Spending time in nature and in the ocean is where you will find me if I´m not enjoying the home I had built and love. Casa Santosha is my personal home and I'd love to share it with you. I have lived in Nicaragua since October 2010 and am a resident, my business Seeking Santosha is a registered Health and Wellness Company in Nicaragua. This developing country has taught me many valuable lessons. Let me create a surf, yoga or wellness package for you or you can just come rent a room and share some laughs. My motto at Casa Santosha: *always be learning. Airbnb guests arrive as travelers and leave as friends so I never say goodbye or adios but rather see you soon hasta pronto. xo
