Why Don Weber chose Nicaragua

Beautiful beach property in a very unique place with both a Caribbean and Latin feel.

What makes this cottage unique

Warm ocean breezes coming off of beautiful turquoise waters. Warm but not blistering hot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Really lovely spot on one one the most incredible beaches you'll ever see. The hosts were lovely! Truly. We had some arrival issues due to our previous destination on Little Corn Island, but Don and Kathy were more then accommodating and understanding. When we finally arrived Kathy gave great recommendations, provided equipment including bikes for us to get around the island and arranged our transportation when we needed it. Just a lovely experience.”

Perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week as part of our honeymoon. We've always loved Corn Island, and I had heard about this place from friends. This place is amazing, it lacks nothing. Its quiet, private, and in one of the most beautiful locations on the Island. When we arrived the room was spotlessly clean and stocked with everything we needed (even coffee). Miss Rachel's cooking is great and quite reasonably priced, although the room also has a very functional kitchen with a full set of dishes and utensils if you want to cook for yourself and save.

The bathroom was a highlight for us as well, Until now I have not seen a proper hot water system in Nicaragua. No suicide showers here. Full pressure hot and cold running water, and beautifully decorated with Island themes with shells and sea glass. This place really lacks nothing, I don't know why anyone would waste their money on some of the more expensive places on the Island. Its even directly on the beach, I could spend hours on the veranda watching the waves and smelling the sea breeze.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited here in December for my birthday unfortunately it rained almost everyday of our trip. However, it was still one of the most amazing locations we have ever been to. The The house is amazing if you are looking for a true Swiss Family Robinson adventure this is it. The island has almost no tourism most people head to Little Corn which is not really our style. When you arrive at the airport ask for the cab driver Arturo he was extremely helpful he only speaks Spanish, but this was not a prolem for us. Don and his family are helpful and welcoming but yet still give you more than enough privacy. I can not wait to return!

We stayed for not quite 2 weeks in the Tree House and it was perfect. In February there were no bugs to be had. Island life is relaxing. You're better off if you can speak a LITTLE Spanish if you want to make trips to the market easier, but everyone at the house speaks English. But you get some fresh fruit for breakfast and look out the window to the beach while you eat. Bike around the island, hang out on the beach in front of the big house. Take a hike to the beach on the other side for water that's as still as glass. It's not for people who want to sip cocktails by the pool all day, but who wants that when you can have a vacation that gives you a new perspective on how you live your life? Loved every second of being there. If we were the type to do a vacation twice we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Heather ,Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it. At this time our drink menu is organic coconut water,but you can always add your own rum.Letting our guests shop and explore gives them a chance to discover the Island on their own terms .Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. Hope to see you again. P.S. We are currently developing a certified dive shop with the help of the head of tourism for Corn Island.Hope you return for chapter two .

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent several days in Granada before heading to Corn Island. We thoroughly enjoyed the colorful and historic city, and regretted having to leave. However, when the plane landed on Corn Island, we knew we had found something very special. The island is just slightly larger than a postage stamp, covered in palm trees, surrounded by perfect blue ocean. We grabbed a cab and headed for Long Bay. I've traveled extensively, but never have I seen anything as beautiful as what we saw when we departed the paved, and drove up the sandy road that leads to the Lodge at Long Bay. Blue ocean gave way to white waves, gave way to bright green water, to white sand, to the palms that surround the most perfect vacation spot I've ever seen. We stayed at the Tree House, and were floored at the value of this private paradise. The beach was the stuff of legend, sugary white sand with hardly another soul in sight. Don and Kathy were excellent hosts, as were the caretakers, Jesse and Helen. Fresh coconuts are available to compliment your breakfast, and Helen makes phenomenal lobster on the grill. The accommodations were nothing short of perfect. Breezy balcony over looking the beach. Hot showers. Comfortable bed. This place is heavenly! We took a snorkel trip with Yellow Tail at Sandy Peachy, and highly recommend them. Doña Lola's is a great place to check out, not for the food so much as the "wow, this is fantastically weird" . Marlene's was our favorite place to eat. Make sure you stock up on cash before you visit. Go see this fantastic island!

Island escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Crow's Nest for three nights and couldn't have been more pleased. Don and Kathy were great hosts! The room was clean, the bed very comfortable and the shower was the best we've ever seen in Nicaragua (not only water pressure but HOT water too!). The beach was beautiful and extremely secluded ( we saw less than a dozen people in 3 days). Helen made the best lobster ever (huge grilled tails). Helen and Jesse's children are adorable and they're lucky I didn't sneak them into my suitcase!

10 days of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

First ever out of the country experience for my wife and I and we couldn't have picked a better first trip location. Corn island is beautiful, friendly and safe. The tree house was lovely. No complaints at all with the quality of the accommodations and the attentiveness of our hosts. Corn island is not a traditional vacation for most folks so keep that in mind. There are very few tourists, which is very good. Most of the visitors we met were European which was also very good. There are no national chain stores for groceries or resturants on the island either which is very good. Lots of beach, lots of sun, lots of peace and lots of rest is what you'll find. The water was clear, clean and warm (about 81 degrees). Air temperature fluctuates between 78 and 85 degrees on a daily basis. No Mosquitos on this side of the island but expect them on the other side after dark. I was concerned about there being no a/c but discovered that it was not needed at all at the Tree House. Always a nice breeze and the house is equipped with fans for sleeping if needed. My only complaint would be the rooster in the back yard. He likes to crow way to early in the morning for me and the rest of us. Also, I must say that the Tree House is a little cramped for four adults. Two kids and two adults would work just fine. Rent this place with confidence. We liked it all so much, we will be returning soon.
