Extraordinario!

  • 5 of 5
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!

What you see and more!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from spending 8 nights at Casa Culebra. It was a fabulous experience for so many reasons. First, we were met by the Concierge, Elisha McKay, in town to review contracts, house information, etc. Then Elisha took us around the town of San Juan del Sur pointing out restaurants, markets, and shops that we might want to go to. This was all invaluable information to have. Also, Elisha had shopped for groceries for us, so that our first night and morning, we would be set up in the house. We picked up our 4-Wheel Drive Land Cruiser from John at Classic Cruiser Nicaragua and followed Elisha out to Casa Culebra. It was a challenging drive the first couple times -- no doubt about it -- but we greatly appreciated Elisha escorting us and bringing us into the property. The house is amazing. You just cannot get a sense of how wonderful it is from the photos. There is breeze coming from all over, so not only do you not need air conditioning, but we even had to put a blanket on at night. It was a wonderful place to be. We cooked most of our meals there --- picking up fish from the fish markets recommended by Elisha --- and bread from Pura Vida Bakery -- yum! Fruit and vegetables from the market in town also recommended by Elisha. We had everything we needed to cook in the kitchen. I think it makes a difference that this isn't just rental house..the owner also uses it, so you can see the care she takes in furnishing it. We were treated to wake up calls from the monkeys and a great variety of birds. I appreciated having the binoculars available at Casa because we forgot ours. It was great to have the pool too. We loved the beaches close by and also adventured out to a few south of SJDS. We will be back to Casa Culebra!

Amazing, fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place this is. The most fantastic house in a wonderful hill top location. We have just come back from a 2 week stay here (family of 4 with kids aged 9 and 11) and we have fallen completely in love with the house, the beach, San Juan Del Sur and Nicaragua in general. The house is super comfortable with a wonderful cool breeze coming through all the time due to the very clever construction. We loved all the wildlife that you can find here, fantastic birds and the monkeys howling outside are amazing. Very primal. A nature lovers paradise.

The house provides a great base to explore this area but you may find that you are so relaxed, you don't fancy going far. AND you don't need to. The beach at Majagual is superb with lovely food and the best Pina Coladas available on the beach from Juanita's kitchen. If you're looking for some adventure, the canopy tour was a real hit with the kids and the surf is fantastic. We also went out on a local fishing trip which was awesome. We caught a huge dorado and lucked out by seeing a whale surface about 20meters from our boat. Incredible!

The owner, Suze was brilliant and told us everything we needed to know before we got there. This took all the stress out of travelling with the kids and meant we were up and running straight away. Our concierge, Elisha, was also great and always available to answer any questions we had straight away.

We would definitely come back to Nicaragua and would definitely stay here again. Totally smitten!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you and your family had such a wonderful time in addition to enjoying so many of our local activities such as the Zip Line during your stay. It was a pleasure to share our home and all of my little tips to make it such a success with the kids. Look forward to having you back next year.

Perfect jungle/surf getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I honeymooned in the house after we road tripped around the country. This place was everything we wanted, everything we were promised and more. Gorgeous design, very well equipped and accessible to the hubbub of San Juan del Sur (if you want it). The openness of the house makes you feel like you are totally connected to the jungle - waking up to howler monkeys was such a bonus! The access to both a surf beach and swimming beach is great, the staff and security were peasant and attentive.We loved being able to get up, put the coffee on, make breakfast and head out for a day of surfing to come back to the clean tranquility of this luxurious jungle haven. And the sunsets were phenomenal. We can't wait to book it again.

Glamorous cabin for a surf trip adventure

  • 5 of 5
This house was beautiful; nice view of the ocean, felt safe area and clean. The owner was attentive to my emails and the concierge Mandy was helpful at showing us the area, giving us a map, etc. Loved the moving walls and the coolness at night- slept very comfortable. We had to do a short, (approx. 20 minute) hike down to the beach, and then another 10 minute hike or so (depending on the tide) across some small-scale rocks over to Maderas (the surf beach). I considered it my leg workout! The hike was so nice as we were constantly surrounded by nature. Maderas beach not only has great surf, but a great cafe and restaurant for cappuccinos, tacos and beer, so take cordobas. Make sure you have good hiking shoes (like Keen sandals) and bug spray. We went to town (San Juan del Sur) the whole trip for dinner since I only cooked breakfast at the house, and most of the time ended up making the drive back to the house at night and never had any problems. We always made sure we had a flashlight since it does get dark there very quickly. The house, the town, the beaches..., all of it, are highly recommended. This was a great adventure!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend this property. Beautiful, well equipped, well maintained house perched on the top of a mountain overlooking the Pacific. Very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere minutes from a gorgeous, usually deserted beach. Walk 10 minutes south on the beach for world-class surf and fish tacos or north 3 minutes for tasty cheap Nica food and $1.00 beers on the beach.

25 minutes from San Juan del Sur for numerous excellent dining and drinking options, sailing, booze cruise, fishing, shopping etc.

Loved it!
