  • We've stayed at Daniel and Norisel's place many times now. We come for the tranquilidad, away from the crowds, but close enough to the beach. Great comms and a great housekeeper as always. We'll be back.

  • This spot is very cute on top of a hill. Very peaceful with a constant breeze. There was everything we needed with a separated bathroom. Communication from host was 10/10. A moto broke down and the host was able to arrange it for it to be fixed in an hour. There was someone to upkeep the property daily. The dogs are nice and friendly and beautiful. About 15 minute walk to the beach. Would stay at again.

  • Great spot close to the reef, restaurants and more. Super clean and tons of space. Such a great deal for the price, and a very responsive, friendly owner and caretaker. I was happy to have my truck (or a moto), because it’s a bit of a trek to the surf, but I knew that ahead of time. It is walkable too if you’re not as lazy as me :) will be back for sure

  • STUNNING My boyfriend and I stood there completely alone , no other roommate, we were able to be butt naked the whole time with 3 doggies , looking and feeling Nicaragua’s love and vibe , with a perfect mountain view was heartless ... also rented a motorcycle which is a must in the area , getting to the house is difficult if you have a lot of luggage , no car , so is a definitely to rent a moto . Don’t expect a luxury tho but is perfect for a honeymoon , amazing solo vea Chi es Tio near the zone ...

  • Really nice and calm small place. Host was very flexible and nice with our check in. the place is really not easy to find. Its around 10 minutes walk from the main road. When you think theres nothing coming bo more, keep walking till you see the green fence :)

    Tobias2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to relax and switch off. My wife and I spent a week here with just the 3 dogs for company most of the time. The house is clean, cool and comfortable. I was even able to work giving classes over the wifi connection. The beach is a 15 minute walk away and the bus stop for Rivas is also a 15 minute walk. There is also a nearby shop where you can buy most things. We would absolutely recommend and hope to return asap.

  • This air bnb was perfect for what we wanted/ needed on our trip. We wanted to get out of the city a bit, and wanted to be closer to some other beaches. The pool was great. The little hut we slept in had everything we could need. The shared kitchen was well laid out and was well equipped. The hosts will give you a great little map of the area and also gave us some great tips on where to see the best sunset and best fish and so on! It was great.

    Beautiful 2 bedroom house 2 min walk to the beach, located in the Guasacate- Popoyo region. Amazing Wifi, apple tv, fully equipped kitchen, hot water, air conditioner on each bedroom. You will really relax at this beautiful house, amazing beaches to visit, great surfing right there. Famous Popoyo surf break its a few minutes walk on the beach, and there is a great beach break right by the house. Restaurants in the area, markets, The area its super safe , also is 24hrs guard.
    The house its located 2 minutes walk from the beach. It has 2 bedrooms, and spacious living room kitchen connected. The bathoom with hot water and great shower. There it wifi, fully equipped kitchen for cooking, outside grill and shower, spacious deck to relax, or just under the tree on a hammock. There are two houses in our property, next to each other but private as well. As you can read in the reviews its a beautiful place to stay.
    The houses are located in Guazacate, which its next to Popoyo. The area its usually known as Popoyo as well for its proximity and since its the famous break its right in the limit between Guazacate and Poppoyo. The houses are located 2 minutes walk ( or less:) from the beach and 10 minutes walk to the famous Popoyo surf break. The beach break right by the house its great too when conditions are working , but pretty much every day its good for beginers and to play around for more experienced surfers. There is a great restaurant steps from the houses, called La Perla. Also we are just walking distance from other restaurants, hostels w special nights, market, bakery, amazing pizzas as well. The beach its beautiful, calm, long and great views. I can provide you with all the info to make your trip amazing. We can also arrange you services such as Airport taxi service, surf tours, surf lessons, volcano tours, and many more activities around.
  • Absolutely beautiful location and can’t wait to go back.

It's in an excellent location, short walks away from places to eat, the local market, and some wonderful surf breaks. The beds were soooo notably comfortable. We will definitely be back and I will recommend the home to everyone. Communication with the host was flawless and she is really sweet.

  • An excellent condo in the bottom corner of a safe, gated community. The place is big and welcoming with a few excellent touches (we enjoyed the Bluetooth speaker as the sun set). There’s bags of space in the main living area as well as 2 amazing spacious bedrooms. The outside area is to die for though. Stunning view of the Atlantic which you can hear in bed. And what a vantage point to watch the sunset. Super space with access to a shared pool and a short walk to the amenities in the main area. Marvellous

The host was very helpful when we got a little lost finding our way to the place and also arranged massages and the masseuse I had was incredible (the best massage of my life!). We are so appreciative to have stayed in this place. Very special :)

    Ben2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding experience! Upon our arrival to El Gigante we were picked up and taken to the accommodation by our hosts. The accommodation itself is situated in the jungle and although it is a short distance from town (10 minutes walk) it makes for a peaceful, relaxing and remarkably beautiful experience. Todd and Rocio went above and beyond in EVERY way thinkable. From their local knowledge right down to the finer details, they were outstanding hosts. The AC works like a charm, the room is comfy and clean, and the view from the deck is spectacular. Todd even loaned us surf boards and showed us some amazing nearby spots. Also their dog Marley, is a friendly and welcome guardian of the property. We could not reccomend them enough and hope to be back soon! You will not regret staying with Todd and Rocio !

    Devon2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. There are several very steep ups and downs to get to the property. Be sure you have the pinpointed map location (not by doña lins cafe) and/ or have the owners come get you. Todd and Rocio are very friendly. My friend was very afraid of their dog, whose barking is ferocious. Todd and Rocio say he isn't dangerous.

    Brent2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Humberto2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    James2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the bomb!!! If you’re even thinking about staying here, you absolutely should. We originally planned to stay for 1 week which we extended to 2 weeks; then we left for a week and missed it so much we came back for another 2 week stay. Don’t have enough good things to say about the space and Todd & Rocio as people/host in general. The house is up in the jungle with land cleared around it which makes it cooler and less buggy than in town. The actual rooms are very spacious, stylish, and have AC which is rare, as well as a huge porch which we spent a ton of time relaxing at. The outside kitchen it great and has everything you need, and if there if something else you need Todd and Rocio most likely have it and are quick to share- I’d say we cooked about 95% of our meals here. The included breakfast is a highlight and always delicious as it is made by Ipolita who has a restaurant in town. As far as safety we felt 110% safe the whole time we were there. They have a big guard dog (German Shepard/retriever mix) as well as a cuidador Juan Carlos that watches over the house, and Gigante in general is a laidback town. Todd & Rocio go above and beyond as hosts and made us feel part of the community rather than tourist. They gave us countless advice/rides/invites to events around town and we went surfing with Todd many days- he was even nice enough to lend us bigger boards when the waves got smaller. We can definitely say our experience in Nicaragua wouldn’t have been nearly the same without them. We miss it tons and can’t wait to get back sometime soon!!

    Becca2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very beautiful place, all very clean. Ideal to rest. They were very kind in helping us get there, excellent communication. Highly recommended. A bit of mountain and beach at the same time!

    Vladimir2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Todd & Rocio are very friendly and relaxed people - it was a pleasure to stay at their home! They know the ins and outs of both the local and expat community. We had freshly cooked breakfast every morning (with local fruits) and were recommended a delicious local restaurant (comedor). Todd & Rocio also brought us along one evening for a concert a 15min drive away. The room we stayed in has an independent entrance, is fitted with a private bathroom and has a beautiful hammock to relax in on the terrace. The untouched Playa Amarillo and Playa Gigante are only a short walk away and are fun to explore (at one point we were alone on the beach!). I highly recommend to stay with Todd & Rocio and regret having not extended our stay even longer.

  • I highly recommend staying in Hacienda Iguana on your visit to Nicaragua - the residence is the perfect little surf getaway with everything you need inside or very close by. The apartment was very clean and incredibly comfortable. It’s in a wonderful location, you can wake up and drink a coffee in the cafe right behind it and head to the beach. Checking in was flawless and they very kindly took us last minute. I would definitely have loved to stay longer, but we will for sure be back!!

    Kelsey2019-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Ashley2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Hayden welcomed us, he was very friendly. He provided some additional information about the area. We had every day the morning courtesy cupcake and coffee at the Ice cream shop; the flat was clean, bed was comfy and overall we had everything that we need it.

    Ariel2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect location for golf and it really is just a short bike ride to the beach. Everything you would need for a great weekend in fact I do a lot of Airbnb and this place hit all of the little amenities that some of the others miss. Uliana was great about providing bikes and they were good bikes not old ones. My second time staying here and I will definitely stay here again if they will have me.

  • Amazing beach front house with great features (mixer, rice maker aso.) a cute pig named Olivia and an outstanding host. Engaged and cooperative!

  • Very quiet place !! If you want to relax this is the perfect place

    Gael2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • I spend 4 really good nights here with my girlfriend! The place is just in front of the ocean, with an amazing view from the kitchen, living room and the second floor! The truck with fruit, vegetables, eggs and chicken pass in front of the house 2 time a per day so you have everything you need in front of your door, a very nice coffee is 5 minutes walking from there and the surf spot is 10 minutes walking so the location is very very good, we love the place! And we highly recommend this place!

    Alejandro2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay here. It’s quiet and peaceful, which is exactly what I was looking for. The room is beautiful too. Located right on the beach. Just make sure you bring food. There’s not much around, but Chris has a beautiful fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Highly recommend!

    Emily 2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing!! Great facilities and the location is perfect for surf. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is always drinking water available. Would highly recommend.

    Matthew2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Chris place is amazing, the location is great, close enough to the surf spots and further enough to rest as you deserve! Good taste and good services.. Just go and visit Olivia!

    Catherie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Family friendly, and stunning place! Our second time there. Truly a hidden gem of Popoyo Nicaragua. The couple that runs Mango's is wonderful, and Gaby is a fantastic chef. He cooked us some of the best food I've ever had, literally 5-star gourmet quality. The place was very well designed, and super clean. Definitely recommend a visit, especially for families.

    Anthony2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Little paradise in the heart of Popoyo! We love this place because everything is clean and well laid out. The owners were really friendly. We sincerely recommend this place a few minutes from the beach by car. To have !

    Geneviève2019-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place if you’re looking to explore or surf any of the nearby areas: Santana, Popoyo, Colorado ect. Tucked in amongst local houses you get a bit more of the real Nicaraguan experience. With beautifully designed boardwalks and vegetation planted throughout, relaxing comes easy. The pool is a perfect touch as the beach is a bit of a walk. I would recommend a car or bike as most activities are not within walking distance. But most of all, I would recommend staying here! We loved it!

    The Whale house was designed for maximum comfort while being efficient. This 2nd floor apartment faces the natural off shore winds that southern Nicaragua receives 300+ days a year. Louvered windows allow you to control the amount of breeze you would like. AC is available (for an extra charge) in the bedrooms along with black out louvers for the late sleepers. The paint colors, tile and white washed doors give a nice homey feel. Enjoy a warm bath after, surfing, golfing and lounging around.
    Iguanas is a gated community with 2 surf breaks a 9 hole golf course, resort style beach club and many other restaurants, shops, and 2 mini supers.
    Many of the restaurant owners are from other parts of the world and their food is very tasty. If you're interested in Golf there are 2 scrambles a week that are enjoyable for any level of golfer.
  • Traveling as a young family, this place was great. Iguana has the trappings of a fancy gated community but the vibe and attitude are decidedly not pretentious. Everyone just happy to be there and have access to the amazing beach, pretty great golf course and nice and varied restaurants. Expect to pay what you would in the US for the corner stores, shops and restaraunts, or buy groceries at Rivas before showing up. The place is well equipped with fabulous and sweet on site hosts and Marcos the owner who is almost instantaneous with replies. We felt so very welcome and the kiddos loved playing with Kai. Air conditioning is 7.50us a room a day but even adding that in this place is a deal, considering it's location and you can get away without it easily with louvered windows and ceiling fans. And great hot water! One of the best parts is you're right on the fringes of the complex and on the 2nd story so the jungle is literally right outside the window. Monkeys, birds of paradise and a few creepy crawleys are all part of the mix. We'd love to come back and would recommend this place as a great value, uniquely located, run by good people.

    Josh And Jennie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and there’s a washing machine! The full kitchen was definitely nice for our trip! 15 minute walk to the market and 20 to the beach was perfect for us. Everything was very clean and tidy. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!

    Celine2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Place is comfy, basic, good location and price is fair. Air conditioning was great, blackout on the blinds was great for a good night sleep.

    Emilio2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to reconnect with your partner. Pretty close to the beach. No 4x4 vehicle is necessary. The comforts of having a super market nearby are invaluable, as well as having access to various bars and restaurants including the beach club.

    Ariel Germán2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • House well structured, clean and with new equipment. The tip for those staying is to rent a golf cart to tour the property.

    Carla & André2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • close to break and very affordable place. great wifi and very quiet if work needs to get done.

    Joey2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great Place! Ricky was our host l, he lives down stairs and he is such a nice guy, good vibes.

    Alejandro2019-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Really great spot within the Iguana development. Marcos was a great host with good communication. The place was clean and had towels, drinking water, etc. As a tip to other renters I would recommend renting a golf cart for the week to cruise around. Would definitely stay again! Thank you

    Nica Life is located beachfront in Popoyo, Nicaragua. Wake up on the beach every morning. We are directly in between Playa Popoyo and Playa Santana, which means you are a few steps away from some incredible surf spots! You practice yoga or have a lazy day in a hammock on our upstairs deck over looking the ocean.
    Our lodge is located directly on the beach. We have several surf breaks right in our backyard, also we have a second story hammock lounge which doubles as a yoga deck. Our first level has a shared kitchen with communal eating area, hammocks and bar.

  • Pleasant establishment. Well decorated. Decent room and bathroom. The camp is on the magnificent beach .....

    Ingrid2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful and magic. We were on a budget and stocked up on groceries and visited the fruit truck every other day. There’s not much of a town, but it’s paradise. I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay off the beaten path. A few close hotels have great restaurants if you don’t want to cook. Santiago and Antonio the caretakers are very sweet and accommodating. I loved it and would highly recommended this place.

    Erin2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hospitality!

    Nicolas2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really great place, super calm directly on a beautiful beach, 10 minutes beachwalk to the next break. Well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and a house pug. We enjoyed our stay a lot!

    Oliver Martin2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! Didn’t want to leave. Perfect location right on the beach. Great outdoor kitchen with a nice area to hang out in. Really calm and relaxing place! Fyi: If you plan to make your own food, the closest food store is around 10 minutes away with car (and it is small), however a truck selling fruits and vegetables comes round every day just outside the house. Would love to come back!

    Annie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommand this place if you are going to popoyo! The location of the house couldn’t be better you are in front of the beach and near all the best surf spots. Santiago, the guy who keeps the house when Chris and Howard are not there, is incredibly nice, he taught us how to fish like nicaraguayen.

    Grégoire2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It’s an amazing apartment! The upper floor with the hammocks and the view: bombastic! We loved chilling there! The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen we saw in Central America so far - there was even an oven and plenty of spices. Also our room was perfect, we even had an ocean view! The only thing, the host there (Nicaraguan guy) didn’t really seem to be interested in us, but it was fine bc we were the only guests there and really enjoyed that!

    Jana2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Looking for a magical, wild and relaxed beach front place ? This is it ! Howard is a super host, nice and helpful, he knows Popoyo and will be able to tell you anything you want to know. You will find here a good terrasse to chill, hamacs, good kitchen, sport or yoga place upstairs with amazing sea view. ++: wifi is working perfectly Highly recommended !

    We are a small beachfront hotel featuring 6 private, oceanfront cabanas. The design for the rooms and the property is inspired by Caribbean style, aiming to embody the charm and simplicity of beach living. SUYO is located on Playa Popoyo, in rural Nicaragua, the heart of surfer's paradise. You can walk to perfect waves or spend the day relaxing on the beach. Guests share kitchen, dining area, bathrooms and a beachfront terrace. If you want to experience beach living in style, come to SUYO!
  • We love Suyo! Simple, elegant, and very comfortable. It’s just as cute in real life as it is in photos, and located on a beautiful stretch of beach. We’re so pleased we found this sweet gem! Thank you, Ashley and Ali, for all of the gracious hospitality!

    Alice2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise in Popoyo! Sleeping in a beautiful cabaña with the sound of the waves. We loved staying here

    Renée2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful! We have spend really great time there. I would highly recommend suyo cabañas :)

    Karolina2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Suyo was amazing! Great hospitality, chilled vibes, views that you just can't beat and to top that, sleeping to the sound of the pacific ocean. The rooms are beautifully simple with decks with hammocks and the common space is well taken care of. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Popoyo or the general area too. Surf lessons are available 10 min on foot away from Suyo. Simply perfect!

    Michael2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so awesome. I had booked for 4 nights at first in cabana #5 but then couldn’t get my mind used to the fact I needed to leave so I booked another night in the cabana #1. The place was simply perfect, even better than the pictures! As a woman traveling alone, I felt super safe here. It’s a very relaxing spot and there’s a bunch of nice spots to go eat around (10mins walk or less). The beach is empty! Not too many tourists so it was a perfect getaway place. Hearing the waves at night or when waking up is very relaxing and I will miss it! Thank you for the stay :) !

    Florence2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here was si nice!

    Céline2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The view of the beach is the photos is even better in person! The ocean is right out the front door, and during the right tide, you can swim right there; no need to walk down the beach to swim. The location on the coastline is perfect, relatively secluded, but just a short walk to at least 3 different restaurants--of which, you can walk to via the beach. It is a perfect place to unwind, hang around in the hammock and relax. The kitchen amenities are thorough and plentiful. If you bring groceries, you would be able to make every meal here. The showers and toilets are in great condition, and are conveniently right next to the cabanas. Host is amazing with information about the area, and is very willing to help with any transportation needs, including rides to the Managua airport. I would definitely recommend this to any travel seeking a peaceful, well-equipped space, right on the beach!

    Rande2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute place like you dream of, but don’t forget to bring groceries with you because it’s a 10 minutes drive to go to a basic grocery otherwise you have the fruit and vegetables truck that pass every day and a couple off restaurants close by, but expensive for the area. But other than that it’s a great place to just relax !!!

    So you've read the news about problems in Nicaragua. None of the protests and the resulting problems happened in Playa Gigante or any of the beach areas for that matter. Tourism has falle dramatically and so have prices. My places are still spotless clean, same friendly staff and even better, everyone loves a tourist because there are so few. Now would be a very good time to help Nicaraguans regain their lost employment and growing standard of living. I'm sure you will be very happy you came.
    A Little house with excellent airflow near the beach. Steps away is an immaculate and orderly bathroom and kitchen. Right on one of the loveliest beaches in the Americas. I swim and bodysurf in the front yard. You can walk to any of five near by surf spots. Restaurants, shops, and fresh fish for sale are all just a short walk away. You have use a fully stocked kitchen. There is a grocery store located on the property with the best prices in town for any of your cooking needs during your stay. There is a beautiful inside shower. And a cascading style one to use after beach time. We can arrange to meet you in Rivas or the airport to make getting here less of a hassle. There are several restaurants, and there are some bars that stay open late and get wild and crazy sometimes. There are several places to rent surfboards. I rent motos for $20 The easiest way to get here is via taxi from Rivas. $20 dollars. Ask for or Dale Dagger's Cool Places. Make sure you turn RIGHT on the only street in town. I'm behind a green gate and are right on the beach. I am well know in town so you should have no trouble. We can also meet your flight at the airport. Laid back and be comfortable vibe pretty much sums up what my places are. I like to think they are kind of cool.
  • This place was a very good value for the money. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. You can’t beat the location . . . Right on the beach and a short walk to good surfing at Playa Amarillo, restaurants, etc. This was my first stop in Nicaragua and I arrived just as the Coronavirus pandemic was heating up, so I was a bit anxious and stressed. This was a good place to land. Dale has been here for a long time and knows the area well. Although I had not booked the casita with the attached kitchen and bath, they were kind enough to let me upgrade because I did not feel safe about sharing facilities after flying during the pandemic. I really appreciated that. I felt safe here as a solo female traveler. The guests that this place attracts are chill. Very relaxed vibe rather than a party vibe. I liked that there was a little shop on site so that I could stock up on food and supplies. The WiFi was good and worked both in the rooms and in the common areas.

    Katie2020-03-20T00:00:00Z

  • Dale’s places are cool, and Veronica is great ! We booked for three nights, ended up staying five.

    Boris2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. We felt very comfortable with Dale. There was everything you need to live and Sufrboards we could also rent directly on site. Everything is unequally expensive and if you do not have a vehicle you are at the mercy. Regardless, we would go back to Dale immediately.

    Jasmin2019-03-17T00:00:00Z

    This cool and quiet hilltop casa is a five minute drive from world class surf, and offers sprawling views of the surrounding valley and ocean from the front porch or from the elevated mirador. The Perch is in sight of Popoyo, but situated up and away from any hustle and bustle. This 2 bedroom home has optional air conditioning, access to laundry and complimentary good wifi. Get comfortable, enjoy the breathtaking views from the mirador, and enjoy. Mi casa es su casa.
    A private hillside casa overlooking the Ocean and surrounding mountains. Enjoy fruit trees, a breathtaking myrador (stilted observation deck) and a large property, all just a few minutes drive/moto from great restaurants and surfing. The house is two floors, with two bedrooms and a large bathroom up, a balcony off the rooms, and the kitchen, living room and second bathroom down. There is a Groundskeeper on sight evenings/mornings to keep the property clean and secure. Michael, the property manager, can help you arrange anything you may need during your stay and lives at the end of the street.
    The Perch is next door to Soma Surf Resort. Here you can rent surfboards, swim in the pool, drink cocktails or just hang out. 5 minutes driving brings you to Popoyo, and one of the best surf breaks in Nicaragua. As well as being a cool beach community where you can get anything from cocktails to authentic Italian pizza and local swag, Popoyo touts a breathtaking beach, Instagram worthy tide pools, and access to numerous activities (horseback riding, deep sea fishing etc.) There are natural hot springs in the area, and you shouldn’t skip going to Magnific Rock for yoga or the amazing view from the restaurant and bar. If you are interested in yoga and don't want to travel far, Yoga In Nicaragua palm roof elevated studio is a quick 5 minute walk away. Just ask us and we will be happy to share their schedule and hours.
  • What an incredible place! Very happy to say that we are gonna stay longer. The house is really big and private. Our host Marco is really nice and he always helps out when you need him. The house has a good location. Near the plaza where you can buy fresh food and also near Popoyo beach. I recommend a moto, car of bicycle when you stay in this house. The walk up to the beach is a bit far to walk.

    Gilly2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • A private, comfortable location, close to many beaches, with a good view. Very kind. Very safe, very nice details. I would like to go back and stay more days

    Milo2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome view!

    Étienne2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with amazing views. House has everything you need for a longer stay, fully equipped kitchen, two rooms and comfortable beds. We stayed for 12 nights and could've stayed longer. Popoyo is a great area to be, friendly people, good surf and beautiful beach. Patrick and Jose the housekeeper were very friendly to us and always willing to help. For this house you need some vehicle to move around since it's a bit far from any shops or restaurants. Patrick can help you with some motorbike rentals.

    Emmi2017-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Bradley is a really good guy and was so flexible with us. We had a great experience in this house, in fact the photos do not do it justice, and met some amazing people in Popoyo, which is great place to say. Its very private and has everything you could ask for in a house, big garden and is very comfortable. This is a criticism of the house itself but I would urge people to get transportation unless you don't mind a 45 min walk to the beach. We had a great time with this but some people may not, but its easy even just to get a pushbike. With that, you can relish in the secluded nature of the house without being too far from amenities. We had amazing Spanish lessons just down the road and the whole area is bright and green.

    Will2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in 'tranquillo' Popoyo/Guasacate. The Perch is located in a really quiet and peaceful area surrounded by trees. If you are lucky the Mango tree on the property will have fruits ready to be picked! The Casa provides everything for a comfortable stay. To get a glimpse of the ocean, climbe the stairs to the highest point of the property. From there you have a pretty nice view and you also get to see beautiful sunsets. Since the property is secluded, we recommend to have a car or motorbike in order to get to places (also for going to the beach and doing grocerious in the closest villlage Las Salinas). The property manager Patrick was always available and really helpful. You will be happy to stay there.

  • We found this to be yet another of the treasures of Nicaragua. The vista is so beautiful, as is the house. The view from the upstairs bedrooms is exactly what I want to wake up to every day. It is a very close walk to the beach nearby. The host was always responsive and quickly. Many places we have stayed in Nicaragua have lacked certain kitchen supplies but this kitchen was very well equipped to do some cooking and baking.

  • Amaaaazing view! This place gave us the jungle feel we were craving while still feeling safe and maintaining a certain level of comfort. The resort beach is not to be missed - our favorite beach of our 3-week trip in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Unfortunately the previous guests left with the main key which left us unable to lock the front door for the first 24h. Otherwise we had a fantastic stay!

    Sarah2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location close to private beach, which you have access to. Epic view and lots of space for your group. Awesome communication and recommendations for any help we needed. Thanks so a lovely stay!

    Emily2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Magical spot on one of the best beaches in Nicaragua. Hands down one of the best houses I have stayed at. Beach is 10 min walk, the house is on a cliff. Would love to come back anytime.

    Lory2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very beautiful, spacious, impeccable cleanliness, a spectacular view, all amenities, excellent for large groups

    Guillermo2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a magnificent, well equipped home with stunning views of the adjacent cove and if the day is clear you can see the mountains of Guanacaste in Costa Rica. Nearby is the amazing Playa La Redonda which we highly recommend. The host was very kind and quickly replied whenever we had any inquiry or issue.

  • Stay more than perfect, certainly the favorite of our trip to Nicaragua! The sea view, the cleanliness of the place, the small kitchen just for us, the places to relax, the sunsets, everything is there! Special mention to our host Nico who by his kindness, his good humor, his judicious advice made our stay memorable! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

    Mireille2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing!!! Everything was perfect and clean, amenities ( room/ kitchen full of appliances) and you cannot beat the location- perfect for surfing and sunset cocktails. The host was so kind and always happy to help. The best air bnb we’ve stayed at.

    Andrew2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and the place in the front was beautiful. Very clean and nico was very helpful and kind

    Gianna2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Simply perfect, the welcome was great. We were greeted by Roland's friend, Nico. The house was located right across from Guasacate Beach. It is really very quiet. If you want to rest this is the perfect place. For surf lovers, there are also some very good places. Also, we had the right to a music show at the bar right next to the house. It is one of the places that it will make you sad to leave during your trip. I recommend this place 100%.

    Norah2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is fantastic! Excactly as it looks like on the photos. Roland was very helpful before check-in and during the entire stay. Easily the best airbnb in Popoyo!

  • what a place - not super luxury/modern but a true million dollar view, cannot recommend highly enough.And Ricardo is a great guy, even sorted a flat battery for us in 30 minutes, superstar host !

  • Impeccable, superb location well located I will surely return.

    Karl2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay and relax! We loved our days by the pool with the amazing view and would definitely return if we are ever in Nicaragua again.

    Eliza2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Ricardo's little paradise in Playa Maderas for six nights, and had the best time. The residence is a really special place. The villa is huge, with amazing outdoor areas all around the house, surrounded by nature. Great view of the beach! We enjoyed days by the residence's pool area, sunsets on the beach and cervezas at the beach bar at Playa Madera. The staff at the residence attended to all our needs. We really recommend staying at this place!

    Tyra2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place. All cottages have nice views. We were in Tortuga, from there the view is really sensational. We just kept looking. Sometimes from the hammock, from one of the seats or from the pool. Nothing better than enjoying the sunset from the pool. We also went to the large swimming pool at house 1 and 2. Also a wonderful place. You really need a 4x4 to get there. The house is also really great, all the things you may need are there. All employees are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended to go here.

    Christiane2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • A+ communication, a great host. Incredible private beach a 2 min walk away. Could not recommend enough!

    Dustin2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, the location is great but if you are not from the area take into account that to enter you must go in a 4x4 car, the views are beautiful!

    Xochil2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is so beautiful!! The staff and Ricardo are so awesome and will help with whatever you need. The place itself is great and the pool and view are truly spectacular!! I can’t wait to stay again. It is abit of a trek to get there and no close store so go prepared But the staff will help you with obtaining what you need if you don’t have everything. You can even get your exercise doing the stairs to the beach. There are only a couple of little restaurants within walking distance but they have the basics Definitely recommend!!!

    Miguel2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Love the house , amazing view , great place , close to everything , the pool is spectacular (larger than most). Gerson the caretaker is very attentive and yet very private. Mary is amazing , easy, quick 10/10 communication. Definitely would come back in a heartbeat. Don’t hesitate book!

    Sam2020-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • A truly wonderful place to get away for a few days. Mary was very communicative and helped us with all our issues. More importantly she and Gerson the caretaker were incredibly helpful in making us feel safe and taken care of. Would absolutely stay again.

    Ned2020-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with a beautiful view of the city and the beach. Mary was very communicative before our arrival which made the check in very easy. The pool was great, and the view at night it’s astonishing along with the daily sunset that you can’t miss. Overall it was a wonderful stay.

    Haxell2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay

    Louis-Antoine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and the views are amazing. We were very comfortable, Jerson made sure we had everything we needed and even knew where my boys (3 teenagers)were. (We were there for a wedding at Treecasa). Camilo and his crew were very accommodating and were always ready to give us a ride anywhere we needed to go. Even when we needed to make multiple stops along the way. Lisbeth made us all dinner one night...truly amazing churrasco! Thank you for an amazing experience.

    Debby2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, Gerson is a star, looking after us like royalty If you stay then you must take advantage of a massage with Karina, who is as good as in a top western massage for the bargain price of $40 per hour- and she comes to the villa.Lisbeth cooked us a lovely meal as well. The only thing that could have been improved was the sofa, which was a tad uncomfortable but all in all we had a great trip- make sure you visit Juanitas, just a quick walk north on the beach from Playa Maderas-best restaurant in our 5 weeks in Nicaragua and such good value. Mary was a very considerate host answering questions very quickly, thank you.

    Stuart2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Imagine waking up to an Emerald Coast with multiple half moon bay views, the sun, and a sea breeze that simply makes you feel grateful to have such fresh air in your lungs. Well, imagine no more, because that’s what Mary’s home is like. A modern beach house with New England beach decor comes together in the spectacular emerald coast of Nicaragua’s emerald pacific coast. From Gerson’s (the grounds keepers) timeliness in opening the gate and rising early to clean the pool, to the ability to pick your local Mahi Mahi and have it cooked at home under Lisbeth’s extraordinary cooking skills, to Mary’s welcome gift and warmth over the phone - I could go on but who would read... I loved this place so much so, I have to come back. Thank you Mary and co for being such gracious hosts!

  • This apartment ist just perfekt to have some lazy surf days at playa Maderas! The furniture and all the little special details were just perfekt to hang out at this place! Dunia has been a great host! Thanks for everything. We would always come back and we had love to staying longer, but the apartment was booked. Lucky for the people who get the same chance. ;-) All the best! I hope for many more beautiful places like this on earth!

    Lucie2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Dunia's house is a wonderful and cozy place. It was clean and well equipped, the kitched had everything you need to prepare your own meals. Loved the many different spots to hang out, especially on the terrace. Nice little artsy touches everywhere :) Dunia was super nice and chill. She gives a fantastic massage, I recommend you to give it a try! Would come back anytime.

    Julia2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Dunia is ideally located, very pretty and cozy. Dunia made us very welcome and advised

    Marie-Gabrielle2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was my third time visiting Nicaragua, but my first staying with Dunia at Playa Maderas, and I definitely hope to come back! Dunia was such a lovely host. She was very respectful of our privacy but offered invaluable help with getting around SAN Juan Del Sur and with surf lessons! She also took us to Friday Pizza Night at Machete (which I highly recommend). The location was perfect, far enough from the beach that you don’t feel like you’re being trampled by surfers, but still a very close walk to the beach! I recommend bringing earplugs if you don’t like being woken up at 5:00am by howler monkeys ;)

    Hannah2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful soul, wonderful woman and the perfect spot to enjoy Playa Maderas. Everything ran smoothly, the bed was comfy and the massage was amazing!! We would definitly return.

    Amy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a great location just a few minutes walk from the beach and perfect size doe two people. Dunia was just great - an excellent host who had everything we needed. The space was sparkling clean with a fully equipped kitchen. There are restaurants at the beach (they close around 7ish pm) but if you plan to cook be sure to pick up groceries in San Juan del Sur beforehand. There's a shuttle from and to SJDS a few times a day which was very convenient, and a much more affordable option than taxis. We could easily have stayed longer and I'd have no hesitation coming back to Casa Dunia.

    Anita2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very nice, the host is very kind and we are so close to the beach, a real little paradise!!!

    Marie-France2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Dunia's place is just perfect! 1 minute walk to the beach. We were 100% autonome. The casita is well equiped, super clean! Dunia is always available for question and even for a massage or surf lessons. We recommand this place to Everyone!

    Perfect Ocean View home only a stone's throw from the Pacific Ocean. Nestled in a small gated community with 24/7 security, reception and services from Buena Onda Beach Resort! It is an enchanting place with incredible views over 5 world class surf spots. 4x4 vehicle recommended.
    Very quite, very private and very exclusive.
  • This place is incredible! The reviews do not lie. The views are breath taking from every angle. The house is comfortable and pool is amazing. We really enjoyed having our own space but also access to the resort and restaurant. There are several greats spots for dining along the beach and you really do need a 4x4 to be able to access everything. The strip is quiet and relaxing and the beach is really beautiful. Be sure to stop at the Colonia grocery store in Rivas (thanks for the tip Philip!) on the way down. Buy more than you need because there are no traditional markets nearby. We did end up searching out some vegetables, fruit and beer but not nearly as easy as Rivas. Book this place! You will not regret it. We will certainly be back!

    Joe2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • The house is the best I've visited, the location, the pool, the barbecue, the cleanliness, the wind is amazing, the view, the details of the house, I loved it.

    Leslie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This home absolutely incredible. The pictures honestly cannot even begin to do it justice. We were looking for a quiet place to stay and learn how to surf, and did we ever get that. Juero and the boys spent 3 days with us 1/1, highly recommend. It is in a remote location so be prepared to be in 4x4 the whole time, and bring all the supplies you need with you because there isn’t much around for groceries/food/etc. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and welcoming and treated us like family. 10/10 would recommend.

    David2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a dream! Definitely will be coming back!

    Shayla2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Ben2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The view was breathtaking! Magnificent sunsets! The house is also very beautiful, everything is well thought out! We felt very comfortable there !!! We spent a dream week! The beach is not very busy, some good little restaurants and hotels on the edge of the beach. Having access to the Buena Onda hotel is a big plus! Yoga and surfing offered! The staff is super friendly :) plan a 4x4 car absolutely. And make a grocery store in advance because Rivas is not at the door and a good part of the road to get there is a dirt road.

    Marie2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This place is just as perfect as you would imagine. The view is astonishing, the space is big, clean and modern, the Buena Onda Beach Resort facilities are great and the staff is lovely. I wish we would have stayed longer and can only recommend it highly.

    Sarah2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • There really are no words to describe how amazing this place is! We wish we had stayed longer. The view is breathtaking and it's a gift to see the mountains, jungle, and ocean every day with what felt like a 270 degrees view. The home is designed so well - amazing layout, lighting, and views from all around the house. We woke up in bed to the sunrise and enjoyed the sunset in the pool. We used the kitchen to cook many of our meals. Every space in the house was a pleasure to be in. We are very grateful to have enjoyed this space! Thank you to the owner and to Gilles and the entire Buena Onda team for helping to make our experience incredible!

Ideal for families, weddings, retreats, and beachgoers looking for luxury at a uniquely accessible price. This rental property has become a favorite for visiting surfers who come to enjoy the all day offshore winds which groom the fast and heavy barrels of Playa Colorado and the rolling peaks of Panga Drops. Enjoy the sunset from one of the two ample ocean side covered patios. Greet the sunrise sipping your preferred morning brew from the second floor sun deck. Relax with a frosty beverage while watching all the surf action, or get your laps in, in one of the coast's largest residential swimming pools. The Fort Walker home design is a fresh, clean, and updated twist on traditional colonial architectural style rooted in the Iberian peninsula and common through Latin America. The home makes use of locally sourced flagstone (noticeably featured in the south wall of the great room), colorful stamped tile, handcrafted iron work, one of a kind artwork, tropical hardwood furniture to create a grand, yet warmly welcoming feel. The house features a ground floor master suite with a king bed and beachside patio access. The remaining 3 bedrooms in the main house are equipped with two twin sized beds that can be converted to a king bed upon request. All 4 bedrooms in the house have AC, bathrooms, ocean view and sliding door access to ocean side patios. A second master suite can be found on the second floor. Both guest suites are located on the second floor on the north side of the house. The living room features vaulted ceilings, plenty of couch seating, a 60” flatscreen TV offering premium sport, network and movie content. This space opens directly to the patio through 20 feet of accordion style bi-fold doors so that the indoor blends seamlessly to the outdoor. The ample upper and lower patios are furnished with chaise lounges, rockers, coffee tables and hammocks to make relaxing in the open air a true delight. The living, dining and kitchen areas are joined in a modern open floor concept so no matter what the activity, the focus can stay on sharing each other's company. A propane fueled generator backs up the electricity in case of power outages. While the community is secure and house staff completely trustworthy, a large safe is available for added peace of mind. Our whole team looks forward to welcoming you to the Playa Colorado beach rental that most masterfully blends privacy, luxury, and surf/beach access for your vacation experience of a lifetime. Activities: This house is located within the Hacienda Iguana development, which is known for its world-class surf breaks. There are 4 surf breaks within walking distance- Playa Colorado, Panga Drops and Los Perros are in the neighborhood and Playa Amarillo is to the south of Playa Colorado (walkable at low tide). We also have a beautiful 9-hole golf course. The course is well designed, beautifully maintained and very affordable to guests. We would be pleased to arrange airport transfers or a variety of other tours, activities and excursions for you before or during your stay: - Private and group yoga classes - Surf lessons and guided surf trips - Boat and fishing charters - Massage and spa treatments - Hot springs - Horseback riding - Local community tours Food supplies: The best place to get groceries is La Colonia in Rivas, 100m south of the turn off for Tola on the right (west) side of the street. (While in Rivas, you should also top off your fuel because these are the closest gas stations to where you are staying). We HIGHLY recommend stocking up on all or as many of the groceries you will need for your entire stay OR if you don’t want to deal with planning, shopping, and preparing meals ask us about booking the meal plan, our full service catering option. Eating out: There are several great food options within the Hacienda Iguana development. In the commercial zone of the development you will find Scoops and Spokes, which serves up some amazing homemade ice cream, good coffee, baked goods, paninis and fresh juices. Side Bar offers stir fry and good cocktails. Don Eloys, which is a sports bar/restaurant, opens daily from afternoon Happy Hour until right before midnight. Casa Maderas is located just past the golf condos and offers authentic Nicaraguan cuisine at a fair price. In the same area, Casa Ananas offers Italian cuisine and daily international special nights. Pili's Kitchen at the Beach Club, in front of the Playa Colorado break, offers a variety of fresh foods, juices, smoothies and full bar. Other restaurants in the general area but in different spots (outside the Hacienda Iguana development) that are worth checking out are: Jasco’s sushi bar at the Riviera commercial plaza. La Scala brick oven pizza and Malibu Popoyo (located in Limon 2), Mag Rock (located in Popoyo), Juntos and Hostal San Gigante (located in Gigante), Yolanda’s and Rancho Santana in the Limon area (ask NSR staff to make you a dinner reservation- need 24 hours advance notice). Shopping: We have a well merchandised store (NSR Surf Shop) located inside the Hacienda Iguana development, which offers souvenirs, surf accessories, clothing, beach towels, flip flops, sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuits, wet suit vests and tops, rash guards and more! We also rent scooters, dirt bikes, surfboards, boogie boards and SUPs out of this location as well. Other businesses in the Hacienda Iguana community include Satori Spa, 2 small convenience stores with a variety of grocery items and an ATM is located on the property. Other activities in the development include yoga, horseback riding and in-home massage is also available. The Riviera commercial plaza is located within a half mile of the Hacienda Iguana entrance. Businesses in this shopping center include Jasco’s sushi restaurant, BAC bank with ATM machine and a small grocery store (with the basics). Getting Around: This property is located a 2-2.5 hours drive from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua. Most of the major vehicle rental agencies have locations at the Managua airport (we recommend you make a reservation in advance). The Costa Esmeralda Airport, located 5 minutes from Hacienda Iguana, opened in late 2015. Direct flights are available from Liberia, Costa Rica on Sansa Airlines. If traveling light, guests may want to consider experiencing the beautiful views and convenience of flying into the Costa Esmeralda Airport. These are small commuter planes with limited cargo storage. Those traveling with full size suitcases and surfboards should check with the airlines before booking ticket to ensure there is ample baggage space on the flight. If renting a vehicle, we feel its only necessary to have a 4wd if planning to travel to some of the beaches further south (in the San Juan del Sur area). If one prefers not to rent a vehicle, we can arrange airport transportation and daily sightseeing/surf trips. We have motorcycle and scooter rentals available and we can also arrange vehicle and boat transport to other surf breaks in the area. There is also the option of renting a vehicle from Alamo and National, which has an office next to the Hacienda Iguana. If you have questions or are ready to book, please email us at: rentals@surfnsr.com
  • We LOVED our stay at Fort Walker with NSR. Communication from booking to checking in was a breeze - we requested a pack n' play and highchair for our toddler, which was accommodated for expediently for low cost. Our housekeepers and gardener were polite and considerate - the gardener even helped us find an autobody for our flat tire! The views and proximity to the gorgeous beach is unrivaled. The house is spacious, luxurious, and tastefully built & decorated. We were only here for 3 days, but we were regretting not booking for a couple more days. Thank you, NSR for connecting us to this beach retreat. We are not repeat locale vacationers, but this one might be a must...

    The accomodation is a 5-minute-stroll from the beach. It is on top of the first hill overlooking playa Maderas. You will enjoy this modern, light studio apartment. It has a compact kitchen + living room. The bed- and bathroom are totally screened in to make you feel comfortable in the tropics. There is a small lush garden with a picnic table and a hammock chair. We also have an herb garden; feel free to use whatever there isour organically grown cilantro, rosemary, oregano, lemon grassl etc.
    Compact, modern, light apartment with kitchenette. Bed can be made as 2 singles or 1 king size bed. Nice small outdoor area with picnic table and hammock. The casita is part of Oleadas Maderas, a small community in the Maderas Hills. We are just a short walk away from the surf.
    We are just a three-minute-walk away from Playa Maderas, the best surfing beach near San Juan del Sur. Playa Maderas is a small community. On a regular base events are organised. Ask us about it and we will let you know what is happening during your stay. Keep in mind that we are on top of a unpaved steep hill. 4x4 transportation is a must!
  • Great place. Few minutes walk to Maderas beach and some restaurants. Space has everything you'll need. Internet is fast enough to get work done. Only minor issue is wind here can be very strong so it will kick up some dust.

    Roberto2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had an awesome time staying at Marc & Marielle’s Airbnb. Playa maderas is a stones throw away which is perfect for surfing and swimming. Marielle even gave us a lift into town to save us a trip on the shuttle. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting San Juan del sur

    Duncan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our two weeks at this cosy place so much! Perfect location to enjoy the beach/surf. Mark n marielle and their children are so adorable and very happy to help you with whatever you need! Thx again and see you soon hopefully! Hugs alina&michael

    Michael2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Casita Olita and we definitely enjoyed our stay. Your are right near playa Maderas, in the middle of the rainforest in your own little sanctuary. The kitchen was well equipped for simple meals, WiFi worked smoothly, and the bedroom/bathroom were clean and comfortable.

    Thomas2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was a beautiful location, host had great and open communication. All of the windows open up entirely so you get a lovely breeze and feel like you are living in the treetops. Internet worked very well for all you remote workers. Quiet part of Maderas

    Robert2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Marc and Mariëlle are hospitable and gave good tips. The room looks nice, enough space and nicely decorated. Maybe a hammock instead of the hammock chair for more comfort.

    Jolien2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place with beautiful surroundings. Very friendly host! Had a great stay

    Frida2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot close to Playa Maderas. It’s on a bit of a gnarly little hill but it’s a good workout walking up and down it to the beach. Their is also a shuttle that leaves from the beach 5 times a day to go into town which helps a lot if you want to do something other than hang out at Playa Maderas. Also, you’re obviously in Nicaragua so yet it is hot!! Their is a bit of a breeze but with no A/C it can be a little stuffy even with the windows. However the space is perfect with a little patio out front! During sunset it’s the perfect place to wind down in the breeze! We definitely enjoyed our stay!!!! 😄

    Playa Maderas, Rivas, Nicaragua

    Sirena Surf House has been designed to welcome it's guests in a cozy atmosphere. Cuarto Sarita is a beach front room with a private entrance, 2 comfortable twin beds that convert into a king size bed. The room has a private bathroom with walk-in shower and a private little patio. The style could be described as "Colonial meets the beach". The wooden sliding doors open up to beautiful ocean views of Playa Popoyo. Your bed is just steps away from the Pacific. Come enjoy Sirena Surf House with me.
    Sirena Surf House as mentioned above is right on the ocean. The idea is to create a beautiful and comfortable environment where guest can really relax and feel at home.
    Sirena Surf House is located on the beautiful remote Playa Popoyo. Although tourism is picking up in the area, it is till pretty untouched. There are several cafes and restaurants only a short 5 minute walk from the house such as: Cafe con Leche, Magnific Rock and Buena Onda.
  • Our stay was very lovely. Unfortunately we only stayed for a night, but the breakfast was very good and the team very friendly. Adriana even gave us a ride to the bus station in the morning. The accommodation is clean and everything was good.

    Laura2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing time!! Isabelle is super nice, welcoming and helpful. The house is located really by the sea - at 20 meters from the ocean. Very clean, super calm and chill. I would definitely recommend for anyone who want to rest, surf and have time to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Lots of options around to eat and to do other activities which I haven't tried though. Isabelle gave surf lessons, helped with my taxi at arrival and departure and was super friendly throughout the trip - definitely gave much more than what I have experienced from Airbnb hosts in the past. I really had a great stay.

    Nicolas2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and amazing host! Truly paradisiac, would totally recommend it. Bella was easy to communicate with long before we got there, helped us with taxis to get around Nicaragua, gave us a bunch of local tips and even took us with her to a music festival where her great band was also playing. Also the staff that works in Sirena Surf House (specially Petrona) are the kindest!

    Clara2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Simply remarkable! From booking to departure, Isabelle has been the most amazing host. Isabelle and her team are full of lovely attention, heaven exists, it’s in Popoyo, at Sardina Surf House. Its unique location allows you to live on the beach with a unique sens of home. The lovely decoration and details makes you live in a cocoon. The breakfast is amazing, Cubano is the best dog ever, neighbors are delightful, location is amazing, beach is breathtaking, sunset front row every night and Isabelle’s recommendation are unbeatable! Only one thing to say: THANK YOU, I’ll be back!

    Edouard2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent service! How to always return!

    Gema2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a pure gem! The space is really well designed for relaxation and the simple beach life. Beautiful view and location watching sunset at Magnificent Rock from the hammock was stunning. Short walk to the best surf spots in Santana and Popoyo. The food was excellent! Isabelle is a great host! She was flexible to our schedule for meals and surfing trips. She organized a great boat trip to Lance’s left and Playgrounds. She has great suggestions for everything in the area. And very importantly she helped us get to the peace and tranquility of the beach during this time of unrest in Nicaragua. We followed her informed suggestions and everything was smooth and peaceful. We felt totally at home and relaxed. I highly recommend staying at Sirena Surf House! We have stayed at 3 other places in the area and this is the best!

    Amanda2018-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Isabel's place is amazing!! It is located direclty on the beach, you can even hear the waves from your room! Not to mention the seaview :) Our room was really spacious and nicely decorated. The rooms also dispose of a little fridge which is a big big plus to store some fruits or drinks!! The outside area is very nice with hammocks to relax in and a place to take the breakfast. Breakfast was very tasty by the way, it is included and you hace a couple of options to choose from!! We came to nicaragua to surf so the location was perfect for us. It s a short walking distance to popoyo break or playa santana. There are plenty of other spots around which you can access by car or boat. Isabel was a perfect host, always there to help. She gave us a lot of good recommendations and useful tips. She also organised a super interesting tour for us. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you so much!!

    Robin2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Isabelle's, perfect location right on the beach, being able to sleep every night with the sound of the waves was so beautiful. Isabelle is super friendly and helpful, with tips and arranging surf lessons (she is also a great teacher), Petrona was also super friendly and made amazing breakfasts. Can't wait to come and stay again!

    Damaris2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place exceeded our expectations. The location is amazing. The sunsets from the balcony, overlooking the ocean, were beautiful! For those surfers out there, it was really close to Panga Drops! The little community is so friendly, safe, and welcoming. I recommend a golf cart as the villas are on the north end of the community. Robert and Olga were attentive and helpful host and we will most definitely be back.
