Amazing value for your money, loved the location and beach!

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights at Treehouse recently so that we would not have to worry about catching the early morning panga from Little Corn for the morning flight back to Managua. Glad we made that choice since it was much nicer to take the afternoon panga back and I think that Treehouse/Crows Nest must be the best value on all of Big Corn. Our friends were staying at Sea Star which is about a 2 minute walk away so that was very convenient (they wish they'd been able to stay at Crows Nest instead but unfortunately it was booked).
All of us had fallen in love with Little Corn so it's a little hard not to be biased, but Little Corn (or the panga ride there) is not for everyone, so if you're going to Big Corn I think this place is perfect. It's $1 per person for a cab ride anywhere on the island, and Long Bay is a beautiful beach. From Treehouse you can walk about 5 minutes to Island Style for a bar/restaurant, and if you keep walking down another 5-10 minutes you'll hit some stores and more restaurants/hotels. We had stayed the first night of our trip (before the morning panga TO Little Corn) at Paraiso on the other side of the island and I much preferred the Long Bay side. Probably if you want to go out to more bars/restaurants, the other side might be better, but if you want a beautiful beach with not a lot of people around, then I think this place is perfect and $50 a night for what you get is a fantastic deal.
Comfortable bed, cute decor, very clean (and cleaned daily), equipped kitchen, and a nice hot shower (well the first day at least... 2nd day wasn't hot but I began to simply never expect hot water in Nicaragua as a whole and just be pleasantly surprised if there was some!)
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. It makes us feel great when people enjoy themselves whether for a couple of days or a month. Also we have upgraded the hot water. A good thing even in the tropics.
