I had a life changing experience in this haven of nature. The cabin where I stayed was amazing. My coffee and breakfast was ready every morning. The grounds are kept very well. I enjoyed sitting in the common area listening to Roy's stories and laughing....More

Wonderful, 'away from it all' cabins set back from the beaches, set amongst the forest, just 15 mins from San Juan Del Sur. Wake up to the sound of howler monkeys and parrots in the trees, have an amazing breakfast while watching the hummingbirds zip...More

Great place to get peace and quiet from city life.The owners are really great. Breakfast was amazing. The property is about a 10 minutes drive from Playa Maderas (the owners will drive you there) and it is about a 5 minute walk from Playa Marsella....More

Roy and Karen, the owners, were so welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. They made me feel like family. Roy drove me to the two beaches nearby, Marsella and Maderas, in his SUV and introduced me to some of the locals. I was very comfortable...More

A true nature lover and beach goer treat. Spacious and quiet bamboo cabanas sitting in the jungle canopy above the river showcasing howler monkeys and many varieties of birds and wildlife. Within walking distance of Playa Marsella and Playa Maderas, said to be one of the best surf breaks in Nicaragua. A great place to relax, surf, trek and enjoy the natural beauty that is Nicaragua. We are as close to a nature reserve/eco lodge as can be without going through all the legalities to get the "stamp" of approval. Enjoy personal service and feel like you are at your home away from home. Offering personal service and satisfaction!
