Nice, roomy , accommodating house, on the beach, a little far from town....and the roads are challenging. But you have privacy and is quiet.....supposed to be. About 3 feet from our windows there was and still is, some construction going on and every morning at 6-6:30 the jack hammering, concrete cutting was starting. One morning, I was so frustrated that I yelled at the construction worker, but who could hear in that noise.The only morning was quiet was on Sunday.
Also, we did not have ANY warm water( hot water was out of the question) the whole week. William ,was very nice and trying to fix it. But he could not. Saturday( we arrived there on Tuesday) some technicians came but when we left on Monday, still no hot water.
Even though was hot, showering with cold water is no fun, especially for the kids.Actually the water at the shower by the pool was warmer than in the house.
The owner was informed, and the only thing we got was. Sorry for the inconvenience!
William and Brenda are very nice and very helpful.
What a wonderful house! We loved staying on the ocean with the swimming pool in the yard. It was a tranquil, amazing location and we hope to visit again soon.
The house was very comfortable, clean and safe. Lots of books in their book library for reading and a tv with cable area upstairs for when the kids needed a break from the pool and beach.
We went with just our small family, but it would be great for a larger family group or with friends. Our young kids, ages 5 and 6 LOVED the pool and being able to swim in the ocean. It was great for body surfing and boogie boarding, but safe enough to let them swim alone.
The caretakers - William and Brenda were amazing and we felt very safe.
We were lucky to see turtles hatching on the beach - what a memorable adventure.
Easy walk to Playa Maderas for surfing. We did not have a car and it was fine. Took a taxi from SJDS to grocery store and then out to Casa Del Sol. It is a cheap taxi from the Costa Rican border - $20. We flew into Liberia in Costa Rica and traveled to SJDS on the first night and that was easy.
Recently a group of us stayed at Casa del Sol while visiting the San Juan del Sur area. We loved absolutely everything about it! The house itself is very nice, with a great outdoor pool/patio area that opens up directly to the beach. Playa Marsella is just beautiful and we were almost always the only people out playing in the water. This beach is not for surfing, but is perfect for playing in the waves, or using the sea kayaks. We loved William and Brenda. Brenda kept the house very nice and clean for us and even washed our beach towels that we left lying around! William was always there to help with whatever we needed wheter it was something with the house, or helping arrange activities for us. He was even able to arrange two cooks to come to the house for our last night there and they cooked the most amazing dinner full of fresh fish. It was incredible. There were a few good little restaurants/bars at the end of the beach, and there was also good food at the next beach over (Playa Maderas). The drive to and from town was not bad at all, and we actually enjoyed being a little ways away from the hustle and bustle of town. We all had the time of our lives at Casa del Sol and would definitely reccomend it to anyone traveling to San Juan del Sur without hesitation!!
Our group was very happy with this home. It is a beautiful house in a great location. The beach was perfect for the kids. We hope to go back.
We had a great time! This was not, however, do to the great accommodations. Nothing big was wrong, but lots of little things: the fridge did not keep food cold (okay, this was kind of big) and the caretaker did not get us ice when we asked him to. The downstairs shower was clogged, one of the bathroom sinks had no water coming out of it, the pool was HOT, maybe due to no water movement, no jets or anything to keep the water going. One thing that was very small but particularly irritating is that there were only 5 forks in the kitchen. We had 9 people (the house sleeps 12) and so some of us did not get to use forks for our meals. If you plan to eat in, bring your own silverware. There was also no charcoal for the grill, which I kind of thought should be included if the grill was included. We gave the caretaker 10$ to get some for us. Lastly, if anyone older than 5 is going to be sleeping on the bunkbeds, you might have complaining. Our kids were little, so they didn't notice, but the beds were not normal mattresses, and were really uncomfortable.
We DID have fun! But we paid a lot of money, and did not feel like that was reflected in the facilities.
I had a tour of the house and I have stayed on this beach in the past. It is absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn't hesitate to book a vacation at this beautiful and well kept home. The beach is lovely and the sunsets are spectacular.
