We are the Webber family from Vancouver, BC, Canada. We fell in love with this perfect piece of surfers paradise during our travels several years ago, before we started our family (that has recently grown to 4). We built this home to suit all of our families needs. This is our little slice of heaven. Simplicity at its finest with abundant sunshine, waves, private pool and raw nature.
Leah purchased this House in 2009
Why Leah chose San Diego
The uncrowded beach break for surfing and quiet serenity of the location, Eco-friendly community, and privateness. About the nearby surf breaks: There are several breaks near-by and within walking distance. Theres a left rock/reef-point break about 20 minutes from the house. When the swell direction is right, it can be a predictable. consistent and barrelling. This break is suited for experienced surfers to play. Out front, is a fun beach break on sandy bottom, that is always just F-U-N! About a 10 minute drive, or 50 minute walk is 'Osochillo' beach break that often has clean breaking A frame waves that are spectacular during the 'Dawn Patrol' early sun-rise at medium to high tide. Less than a 5 minute walk from the house is the beautiful long stretches of Nica beachland with the worlds most amazing waves for playing in, as well as Los Cordones Surf Camp Restaurant and Bar that serves up big servings of fresh seafood, pizzas, and just about anything else you are craving. They offer an all inclusive deal, or a la carte. Los Cordones offers relaxing and deep tissue massages for $15/ hr, and yoga in the private rancho overlooking the ocean.

Very comfortable home, just a brief stroll from Los Cardones (http://loscardones.com) and the best surfing in our lives. In the afternoon when the temperature is just a little warm, the pool is quite refreshing and there is ample space for sunbathing. The well appointed house catches the breezes quite well keeping it comfortable day and night and there are plenty of spots for relaxing. This is a great home for a family or a couple. Slightly secluded from the rest of the "neighborhood", it is also an ideal spot for a honeymoon or a 2nd honeymoon (or a yearly honeymoon). The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed most meals here with the occasional outing to Los Cardones.
Daily surf, sunbathing, walks on the beach, reading and relaxing: it is an ideal place to get your tranquillo.
If you must, wi-fi is in the house, but you should be too busy relaxing to care.
Second visit--great both times!
This was our second stay at Casa Olas. The house is a simple 1BR that has everything you need including a full kitchen. The A/C in the bedroom is a fantastic bonus. There are two fold out futon couches in the main room. The house is a short walk through a beautiful mangrove forrest to both the beach and Los Cardones Lodge. The best feature of the house is the pool! Our kids swam every day in the afternoons to cool off. A trio of frogs made an appearance each night.
Casa Olas is perfect for a small family, couple or anyone who wants to kick back, relax, swim, surf and enjoy the tranquility. Highly recommend.
So Happy your family enjoyed our home as much as we do!! We are here now and soaking it all up! Hope you make it an annual family bonding trip each year, like we do!! Thanks for the Great Review!

My husband and I and a couple of relatives stayed at this beautiful home for 4 nights. It is only about 1 1/2 to 2 blocks walk to the beach (which was very un crowded). It was really nice to be able to cool down in the pool. Jenelle and her husband (Dan) were very helpful and super friendly, and so was Luis, the young man who was taking care of the plants and cleaned the pool (from leaves) as necessary among other things.
Los Cardones (a restaurant, a place to do yoga, rent surf boards and take surf classes, or to have a massage) was very convinient and staff was friendly, in particular Eddie, Olga, Maricela, Maria, Martha, Ana and Lucia. We Took advantage of the massage and of a few delicious meals.
I recommend Casa Olas and would definitely come back. Thank you for a memorable vacation.
Beautiful house, perfect location; Paradise!
I was daydreaming today about our holiday at Casa Olas, and I realized I hadn't shared my review! We stayed here in late January, and the weather was amazing, the house was unbelievable, and it was super close to a beach with great waves for beginner/intermediate surfers.
Janelle was sooo helpful. She met us even though our flight got in after midnight, and she did an amazing job of grocery shopping for us the very next day. Food is so cheap, and fresh and delicious! We couldn't see another home from our deck, and cooling off in that pool after a morning jog or a hot day at the beach was so nice. Luis cleaned our pool every day, twice a day sometimes, and he was really helpful and friendly, even taking care of a scorpion we came across. The people at Los Cardones were super helpful with board rentals, and helped me out when I got stung by a stingray not once, but twice! (purely bad luck, I was the only one who got hit).
You need to book this place. I can't wait to come back and do it all again, maybe for 2 weeks next time!
You're crazy if you don't stay here! My husband and I stayed here for five nights celebrating his 40th, and we had the greatest vacation ever. Janelle and her husband, Dan, were helpful and friendly and made our stay perfect. Casa Olas is about a 3 minute walk to Los Cardones Surf Lodge where you can get a $20 massage on the beach, take a super relaxing yoga class, and get a meal or beer if you'd like! We surfed (you can rent boards), played on the beach, and very much enjoyed the pool and privacy of the house. Casa Olas is perfect for a quiet getaway, but we're already talking about coming back with our two girls at some point soon! This place is easy to get to, well-stocked, friendly, and it was the most relaxing getaway we've had in years! Thank you!
THE MOST RESTFUL VACATION WE EVER HAD....... YOU HAVE TO GO....
We stayed in this great home for 9 days and nights. We had the time of our lives. Being so close to Los Cordones Lodge was the perfect location. We walked the beach and fished everyday. The pool was my favorite part of the vacation as well as the air conditioning. Everyone was sooooo friendly. We loved watching the surfers. And a BIG THANKS to Janelle and her family for taking such good care of us. Captain Dan was great in the fishing department. He took my family fishing and they ever caught tons of fish.. FUN WAS HAD BY ALL......
