Great beach, great condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for four nights over the recent Easter holiday. Easy access, only about a half hour from San Juan del Sur on a good road, and a fabulous deserted beach, even at the busiest time of year for the Nicaraguan coast. Our group ranged in age from four to sixty four, and everyone was extremely comfortable. Beautiful views, very quiet, and a very well maintained and secure condo complex. As an added treat, we participated in the turtle release one afternoon at Playa Flor, which is only about a ten minute drive from Playa Coco. If you are looking for peace and quiet and a great beach steps from your door, this is your perfect choice.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

After a few days at another location near San Juan del Sur, we were blown away by this home and the location! It easily accommodated 2 families (kids ranging from 10-13) and the beach was amazing. It was great to have the pool option for the kids too. The unit was well cared for and had everything we needed! The grounds surround the complex were beautiful.

For a quiet getaway, I would highly recommend this as a perfect location!

Amazing house right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Playa El Coco for a week after having been elsewhere in Nica. Our stay was fantastic. The house itself was beautiful, with all amenities included. Bedrooms were big and bright, and the main floor living space was spacious and clean. The grounds were well cared for and provided a great escape from the sun and beach. Our children loved the pool, especially the shallow ledge for our little one (7months old).

We loved the location...being close enough to drive to San Jan, but far enough away that you were out of the "scene".

Jim was super accommodating to us, even picking up a new pack and play for our little one to sleep in! He also arranged fishing for my husband, and a cook/housekeeper.

Can't wait to go back next year :).

Secluded Haven

  • 5 of 5

It was one of those mini get-away where we had a wonderful time, my family, unexpectedly, loved this secluded townhome at Playa El coco south of San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. The place is run by the co-owner Jim (Jersey), who was so helpful and had a great part for making this trip an unforgettable one. We enjoyed the beach, the food at the nearby restaurant and even had a glimpse of newly hatched turtles release to the ocean. The accommodation was excellent and tastefully decorated. A very comfortable and clean spacious home. We, also, have enjoyed immensely the sunsets every day we were there, it was mesmerizing.

It almost felt like a 5 star hospitality hotel.

Unwillingly, we had to leave but with one thing my family and I agreed on, WE WILL BE BACK. We departed and personally accompanied by Jersey.

Could Have Stayed Forever

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a vacation where I could just get away from it all and rest (all my others had been tours) and that is exactly what I got. The beach is spotless and beautiful and it was very quiet. I found the neighbors and locals very friendly. The town was close enough for any day trip or evening out for dinner, but far enough away to avoid any "city" hustle and bustle.

The owner was more than accommodating with any request or question I may have had.
