We live in the Pacific Northwest and love it...except the long wet and cold winters get very long, wet and cold. We were thinking about eventually finding a place to escape the winter weather when Casa de Sol found us! Even though this idea was 10 years off, we knew we would never find a place like Casa de Sol.
Since we are both still working and have a young family we decided to offer it as a vacation rental for now and eventually make it our 3-6 month home.
Tamara Philip purchased this house in 2005
The natural beauty and tranquility make this a magical place!
Solitude, incredible views, natural beauty, accommodates a large group of friends and family.
We needed a place to house three families, including 6 adults and 7 kids. After lots of searching, we were just happy to finally reserve a place with room for us all. On arrival, we realized that Casa de Sol was so much more than we thought. Unparalleled views of the beautiful Laguna de Apoyo; the top of Volcan Mombacho peaking over the rim of the opposite ridge; troupes of Howler Monkeys in the trees; large and luxurious bedrooms; well stocked kitchen and spacious living areas; huge infinity pool overlooking the lake; helpful staff; all of this and more made for the vacation of a lifetime. We've stayed in many vacation rentals in Nicaragua, and this one was by far the most well supplied and maintained. It really feels as if you are invited to share in the owners' personal retreat.
If you have small children, be advised that there are some architectural aspects of the property where style and views were valued over safety, such as no railing on the balcony overlooking the pool/lake. This wasn't a surprise to us as we were well-advised beforehand by the owners. Our group included children with the ages of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9, and after setting some ground rules about where they could and could not go we had a fantastic time.
We highly recommend Casa el Sol and look forward to our next visit.
We are two couples who rented Casa Sol for six weeks to give birth to two beautiful little girls. It was my second time renting the house and it was as good as I remembered it. The home itself is beautiful and the lake is amazing and perfect for swimming. The staff and caretaker's do a great job and are super friendly but at the same time are discreet allowing for plenty of privacy. The proximity to Managua, Granada and Masaya is excellent for tourism and other needs. The kitchen is very well stocked and has pretty much everything you need. I recommend Casa Sol to everyone looking for a clean, safe and very comfortable vacation home. It is perfect for families and small groups.
I work for an NGO in Nicaragua that has used Casa del Sol for our staff retreats for years. The house is absolutely beautiful. It sits right on the Laguna and there are amazing views from both inside and outside the house. The house is very large and we have fit up to 12 people in there comfortably (they have air mattresses if needed). The grounds are well-taken care of and the on-site caretaker and housekeeper are both outstanding. Tamara (owner) is great to deal with. She's very prompt in responding to inquiries. We rent a variety of houses throughout Nicaragua for our retreats and Casa del Sol is by far everyone's favorite. The only reason we don't come back for every retreat is because we like to rotate houses for variety's sake. But really, no complaints, only praise. I have recommended this house to others looking to stay in Laguna de Apoyo and will continue to do so. Thank you Tamara for another great stay!!
We live in San Marcos about 40 minutes from the Laguna. Whenever we need to get away or have family/friends in town, we always book a the Casa del Sol. Tamara is great and super accommodating as well as her staff. House is beautiful, always clean and ready for us. And of course, no words are needed for the Laguna itself.
This is one of the best properties we have had the pleasure to visit IN OUR LIVES. We travel globally and this was our second trip to Nicaragua. The owners were great leading up to the trip and during it. The staff is wonderful, do yourself a big favor and make sure you hire the cook, it's incredibly affordable, the food is FANTASTIC (our boys fell in love with her Gallo Pinto and looked forward to the meals EVERY DAY) and you can decide the day prior if you'd like to skip a meal if your plans take you elsewhere for the day. She will even teach you how to make real tortillas and knows a fair amount of English. On that note, the property manager is completely dialed into the area and speak excellent English/can help with just about any request you may have.
The property has an infinity pool and a terrace that is just amazing. Swimming in the Laguna is awesome whether it is a bit wavy or super calm. the THERMALS are a great experience, you move from 80 F water into a HOT TUB when you are over one and it's quite a treat. You can walk to Laguna Beach Club if you'd like some company or a change of pace and it's not one of the hectic/super loud ones that are a bit further away.
I'd come back here for a 'guys trip', my wife would do the same for a girls trip and we are definitely bringing our kids back again (9 and 12). You can just relax on the property, or use it for a launching pad to Granada, Masaya, Catarina and other areas. Nature hikes, swimming, other water sports and recreational activities are a $5-20 cab ride away.
We also LOVED having not only the housekeeper/groundskeeper/cook, but it was comforting to have a security guard on the property 24/7. I honestly can't imagine (except for people with disabilities, because there are stairs and it's a multi level property) anyone that wouldn't REALLY enjoy their stay at Casa Del Sol.
We have stayed here several times over the past four years and it remains our favorite spot in Nicaragua. The views are amazing as is the staff. We highly recommend a stay at this house. The rooms are large and spacious as well as very well equipped. The kitchen is large and perfect for cooking should you decide to do so. This location is quiet and peaceful allowing you enjoy the surroundings of the crater lake.
