We stayed here after being terribly disappointed at Los Altos. Ester’s place was great, with a lovely garden and outdoor sitting area. The rooms are small but the outdoor area is the hang out space. The homemade breakfast was a nice change from gallo pinto....More

My wife and I stayed for two nights, while organizing our trip to the Miraflor Reserve. Esther gave us a very friendly welcome and we had long chats. (Like many Dutch people, she speaks excellent English, better in fact than many English!) As well as...More

Esther & Jairo are lovely people and superb hosts who are welcoming and helpful. Their two rooms are spotlessly clean and reflect attention to detail and comfort combined with functionality. The outdoor covered veranda is spacious and inviting, a wonderful spot for the delicious breakfast...More

Wow. If I could give Esther more than five stars I would. Her home, yard, and view of Esteli are very nice, but her hospitality was amazing! Thus far in my travels using TripAdviser, I have to say that Esther has been the best host...More

I'm a Dutch expat who always wanted to start a B&B in another country. In 2009 I sold my house in the Netherlands, quit my job as a bank manager and bought a ticket to Ecuador. I lived there for a while,but it More wasn't the place for me. I then decided to go for my second choice; Nicaragua. I arrived here in Esteli in 2011 and fell in love with the place and the people and bought a house. I'm an outgoing person who speaks English, Dutch, German and Spanish fluently. I used to speak French as well, but somehow when I learned Spanish, the French got a bit lost along the way :) It has always been my pleasure to welcome people to my house and pamper them with great atmosphere, food and drinks. Here I would like to do the same. I would like to make you feel very welcome in my B&B. Hope to see you very soon :)E Less
