We stayed at Derek's for 6 nights with our toddler and loved it. It is the most magical location on the island and felt like a very unusual and special spot with beautiful beaches on either side. The huts are gorgeous and comfortable (but not at all fancy - no hot showers - but this is pretty standard). Derek and...

This was the best place we stayed on our trip to Nicaragua. We were in Nicaragua for an adventure and we found it in this property. The grounds are the most beautiful on the island and the beach is the cleanest and nicest. There are coral reef formations 10 meters from the beach where you can do some great snorkeling....

Hi, after lots of time looking at where to stay I picked here and I am gutted I didn't get to stay. I was on Ometepe when I heard my dad was going downhill fast and had to leg it back to the Uk. It took me two days and he died the day after I returned. As you can...

If you can stomach the ride over to Little Corn then you know once you arrive that it's the real deal. We made a mistake in our planning of what day we were to arrive. I would recommend you arrange a guide to take you or have Derek's people meet you at the ferry drop off. The first trip over...

We stayed 4 days at Rincon Casita and loved Derek's place.....the location, the snorkeling, the breezes, and beach. The food was plentiful and good, and sitting family style with Anna and Derek's guests was nice for different conversations, but for variety we did have to do the walk into town, or to Peace Love farm around the pennisula, but the...

We loved Derek's place, the location, the views and the way in which rooms were appointed and designed. A very Crusoe feeling. It is a bit off the bitten track, but well merits the detour and the 15-20 min walk from town. The owners are not particularly welcoming...also the food chapter needs to be significantly improved, breakfast (and the service...

This place is fantastic! Located in the remote north corner of the island this place feels secluded and private. The location is perfect for snorkel or dive trips and leasurely strolls on the beach. The accomodations are rustic but perfect for the island. The staff and owners of this place are super friendly and helpful. The food is amazing as...

Derek's place was a wonderful, magical place to stay. We rented the largest beach house (we traveled as two couples) and were amazed at how large the house was - it is very cozy and full of character. We were steps away from the beach and felt like we had our own private beach at times. Compared to other lodging...

We just got back from our trip to Little Corn Island. We stayed at Derek's Place for 4 nights and would highly recommend it. During our stay on Little Corn we visited other hotels and none came close the Derek's. Derek's is very private and secluded. We rented the "beach house" cabana and could not have been more pleased.
