About Margaret Walesiak

My husband and I share the same passion for traveling. We have traveled to many countries and have seen many beautiful places. Day to day demands of my husbands busy and successful business and my full time job pushed us to look for the oasis and a hideaway place where we would be able to unwind and relax. For us, Nicaragua is about warmth, being grateful, being one with nature, taking the time to smell a flower, playing with the kids and grand kids at the beach all day long and just hanging out in hammocks in the company of family and friends. In Nicaragua time slows down. We have four adult children and 5 grand children and all of us love spending our free time in Nicaragua and now that I have retired I can enjoy our oasis at different times of the year and experience their very uniqueness.

Margaret Walesiak purchased this bungalow in 2002

Why Margaret Walesiak chose Nicaragua

When in 2002 we took our first trip to Nicaragua we fell in love with this country and it's people. We choose this location for its beauty and tranquility. Playa Remanso is nestled in one of the most beautiful bays along the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. San Juan del Sur is only a short drive by car. Conveniently close for picking up groceries yet comfortably far away to let you abandon yourself to the peace and quiet of Remanso Bay. Us, our guests, family and friends have been enjoying coming here. You can forget about your daily life and get completely lost in the beauty of nature. Why don't you try it and experience it on your own.

What makes this bungalow unique

With an ocean and pristine beach just 100 meters away from our house we enjoy morning / evening walks on the beach and many swims throughout the day. We love morning coffees while sitting in our outside living-room, listening to the ocean and watching the waves. In the evenings, if we feel like it, we take a short drive to San Juan del Sur (7 minutes) where we can have a meal at the friendly restaurant or an evening stroll along the Malacon Blvd. San Juan del Sur is where we buy all the groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables at the local market as well as fresh fish at the Fish Market located by the new port. We enjoy this life and we hope that you will enjoy it too.

Best Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5

When you are sad to leave a place and wish you could just stay, you know you have had a great Vacation.

We stayed three weeks and loved every minute of it. The house is very clean, the patio is large with hammocks, chairs and tables. The kitchen has everything you'll need to cook with, or ask Flor to prepare a Nica style dish, it is excellent. Playa Remanso beach is beautiful with 2 places to buy drinks and a meal.

We rented a car and went to several beaches which are in a short driving distance, all clean and charming.

Margaret and Eric were at their house and we spent time with them, a lovely couple who made our stay

very special. Seeing an active Volcano one day and playing Golf on a very nice course another day are really great things to do. San Juan Del Sur is a Town about 15 minutes away by car and has really nice restaurants and shops. Thank you Margaret and Eric for sharing your Beach House. We are still talking about this Holiday 3 weeks later. It was the Best. David and Valerie.

Paradise to be experienced

  • 5 of 5

After 3 weeks of paradise, one does not want to go back. This is how we felt at Mar y Sol Beach House in Playa Remanso. After the very warm greeting by the staff, Flor and Francisco, we were lead to this beautiful house that has anything that you might need on your vacation. Comfortable beds, comfortable outside furniture, fully equipped kitchen and great outside living space. From the sunrise to the sunset, life in Remanso Beach is great. Coffee on the beach in the morning and good drink on the beach at night. What a life. Flor and Francisco are great companion and are very helpful, even in learning Spanish.

Two taco bars on the beach can eliminate your cooking problem or like we did few times, we asked Flor to cook for us. She is really a great cook and meal was fantastic.

We hope to go back to Mar y Sol next year for a few weeks. I would recommend this place to anyone.Dealing with the host/Margaret was a pleasure. Everything she said and more turned out to be a great vacation.

Seaside paradise !!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friend have stayed in this beautiful, comfortable place for three weeks. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves and listening to the howler monkeys in the morning was fantastic. Lovely garden with the day beds facing the ocean through the palm trees is unforgettable.

Flor and Fransisco were very friendly and easy to communicate with.

Thank you Flor for morning fruit juices.

Great place off the beach like advertised. Would definitely stay here again.

We had access to the nature, and access to internet :)

It was breathtaking, stunning place to stay.

We would go back there any time.

Thank you Margaret. You are amazing host.

Good Times!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Mar y Sol with my wife and two kids for six weeks while here on a work trip. Good times! The house was fantastic, Nica style! Flor and Fran, the caretakers, treated us well. Flor's cooking and cleaning service is well worth it. Margaret was a terrific hostess. Prompt to respond to any needs. Nothing like walking two minutes to one of the area's best surf breaks! Rent a surf board, take a surf lesson, grab some food and a drink at one of the restaurants, hang out at the beach, go for walk to see the incredible tide pools, hear the howler monkeys, so much to do at Remanso! Highly recommend!

Situated only 100 meters from the beach, this perfect location will allow you to have your morning cup of coffee on the porch or take it with you to the beach to watch waves or have an evening drink watching the sunset. Level entry from the house to the beach means that surfers don't have to climb, up or down, the hills and can save their energy for the waves. This short distance to the beach is ideal for any age - from a young child to an elderly person. The ocean floor is flat and you can walk in to the water without a fear of sudden drops. Daily breeze will allow you to cool down in the evenings and at night.

The beach house is just 35 minutes away from the ferry to the famous Ometepe Island, 1 hour from the city of Masaya with the biggest souvenir market, 1 hour form Mombacho Volcano with great zip lining and 1 hour from a historical city of Granada.
