About Tamara Philip
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

My experience at Casa de Sol was so amazing, I am eager to get back. From the amazing security guard, host, clean up crew, to the perfect scenery and water. My siblings and I will be back! I miss it already. Thank you Tamara for provided excellent service. Your home is phenomenal!
Most beautiful House BUT.......
This home is magnificent! It is absolutely Beautiful and extremely well kept. But.... I wasn't told I'd be sharing it with other people. In the evening when the sun went down other people would show up and hang out below the pool. The security guard said it was okay. Then after we turned the pool lights off and went inside for the night, somebody turned those lights back on. We could hear people hanging out around the house through the night. Then at 2:00 in the morning, my children woke me up because they were scared. I went downstairs from our bedrooms to investigate and found a bunch of people sleeping on the ground right outside the entrance doorway. Now I know this is something that can be fixed once the owners find out. This is something that the security guards are letting take place for whatever reason. But, this is a scary situation for tourists from another country who don't speak spanish. This definitely ruined our stay at this spectacular home. ALSO...we had to leave the house unlocked the first night when we went out to dinner. We weren't given a key till the second day.
*THE HOUSE AND VIEWS ARE "TO DIE FOR"....ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!
Would absolutely return!
What a beauty and memories to last my family and I a lifetime.
The property was easy to locate based on the location the property manager provides you.
The property itself is stunning with views to forever be engrained in your memory.
My family and I have already discussed staying here again. Our only mistake was that the stay was not long enough!
Thank you for hosting us!
Hello! Thank you for selecting Casa de Sol. We really appreciate your nice review and how well you took care of the house and property. We would love to host you again!
Once again we were blown away by the beauty and perfection of Casa Sol. Nothing is overlooked at this placed. Every time we come, we enjoy every moment. It is truly one of my favorite places to be on the entire world.
Beautiful House of the Sun
The house is very comfortable for a family of 5 brothers with their partners, like mine, the rooms are large, have comfortable beds and very good air conditioning in them. He sleeps very pleasantly. The pool and the area around it is excellent. The natural landscape is enjoyed everywhere. The only thing I suggest is to put air conditioning on the first floor, since the fans are not enough for the heat of Nicaragua and it is the place where the family gathers to enjoy music, karaoke, dance or other activity together and we were always sweating and very hot there.
