Our expectations were exceeded! After a long winter we could hardly wait to arrive in San Juan Del Sur. We were met by Elisha and Gordon with groceries and cold beer. Not a bad way to start vacation. After Elisha and Gordon gave us the scoop on the local culture/restaurants/beaches etc. we headed to the house. The drive from town to the house was about 30 mins. It gives you plenty of time to appreciate the unique geography of San Juan. We highly recommend a 4x4 like Suze mentioned. The hill up to the house can be steep.
The house was more than amazing; we were able to relax immediately. The design of the home provides for a very tranquil environment. The view was spectacular and serene. (For those of you worried about AC, it is not needed. You will catch cool breezes from the ocean all night.)
There is a private road to the beach; we were typically two of ten people on the beach. There is also a beautiful pool available but we gravitated towards one of the many beaches most of the time.
We also felt incredibly safe. Security is available 24/7. We had a few late nights and security was always there to greet us.
If you appreciate wildlife and bird watching this would be a great option. The howler monkeys were fun to watch in the trees and wake up to in the morning.
My husband and I have traveled to many tropical places and vacation rentals are our preference. We would highly recommend Casa Culebra, not only because Elisha, Gordon and Suze were SO incredibly helpful but the home is absolutely amazing.
Elsiha, Gordon and Suze, thank you again for an unforgettable experience in SJDS! Cheers!
