From San Francisco, CA August 16 2017 - August 20 2017

The Casita is perfect for a couple or single traveler.


Beautifully constructed with lots of space, high ceilings, large bathroom and well equipped kitchen.


One of the best values in the area and you can use the pool at main house if it's not rented.

We stayed in the Casita (the garden apartment)

Rating starRating starRating starRating star

From Maitland, FL July 04 2017 - July 08 2017

We loved the area and the place. We stayed at the garden apartment and one thing to know is that it is BEHIND the house. I would not say you have access to the pool or anything, if another family is staying in the big house. The roads are muddy dirt roads, and it's tricky even walking on them...on the other hand, you are mere seconds from epic surf. The beach is great and you feel secure there. Some of the best surfing I saw on the whole trip was at Colorado. One day, the surf shop guy told me it was basically 'flat' today....I paddled out to Panga Drops and it was way definition of flat in Florida does not come close to matching.


The owners of the Casita, are very attentive, and any issues we had were resolved quickly. You will need to bring food. there are a few nice places to eat, but a real grocery store is a long way away...and by grocery store, I mean Maxi Poli. There are a couple of convenience stores, and they have a lot of surfer style food, but coffee, OJ, Milk, stuff like that, I'd bring with me. The houses in this area are like mansions to other places we stayed in Nicaragua...kind of an Oasis.

From Idaho and California May 05 2017 - May 11 2017

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Casita La Selva. The king-size bed was extremely comfortable, there was AC, wifi, and all the amenities needed to cook. There is even a washer and dryer in the house, and a friendly cat, Lulu, that pops by to say hi on the porch in the evenings.


Iain is beyond helpful -- he coordinated our rides to and from the airport, coordinated with Manuel to bring us delicious fish (fresh dorado and lobster tail) whenever we inquired about it, and set up massages at the house. He also told us about beach volleyball at Pilli's and helped us rent bikes for the week. Iain is incredibly friendly and was always available to help us out!


The Casita is about halfway between both Panga and Colorados, and is only steps from the beach. On bikes we got down to Pilli's in a snap for happy hour, and also to the market and Anna's cafe in about 5 minutes, which are both located further back in Hacienda Iguanas.


We will absolutely be back. Thank you Iain for making our stay here so incredible! We can't wait to come back and have dinner with you again.

From São Paulo, Brazil April 22 2017 - April 27 2017

We stayed at Casita La Selva for 5 nights in April. Location is amazing, very close to the beach and to two of the greatest surf spots in Nicaragua. There are some restaurant options outside Hacienda Iguana, if you have a vehicle. We rented a scooter at NSR and it went just well with the options inside. The house is quite new and equipped with what's necessary. Iain (our contact) was always ready to help. It was a great time of surf and sun to relax and enjoy central america.

The service at Casa la Selva was so convenient. A phone call away. We had a superb chef, activities at our fingertips.

Wifi wasn't great but I liked not being "available"!!

From Aspen, CO (USA) December 08 2016 - December 19 2016

My husband and I stayed 11 nights in Casa la Selva. Iain was our contact during our stay. He was incredible! He sincerely wanted us to contact him for anything necessary whether it was a tour to other places, produce delivery, fresh fish delivery, or just a ride to the grocery store. He often saw us walking in the community and always stopped to offer a ride. We’ve stayed in a lot of rental homes all over the world and never had this kind of service.


The house was true to the pictures and very comfortable. We had a great stay. Thanks Iain!

Styling in Nica, way beyond my expectations

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil September 07 2016 - September 13 2016

On the last south west swell, I decided to go surfing in Nicaragua for the first time. My Hawaiian friend, Mike Latronic, had told me about Playa Colorado, and spoke very highly about Casa La Selva, where the Hawaiian surfing team usually stays. When I got there, I was very impressed by the natural beauty, and the mixed aroma from the jungle and the ocean mist. The house is very well located, decorated and equipped. I was watching the contest at Trestles on TV using Apple TV's AirPlay in between surf sessions at Panga drops, right across the house. It was awesome being able to walk to great restaurants: Pilli's to the left, and Casa Madera to the right.


The staff was on point, being available around the clock providing and organizing everything, including boat rides with a surf photographer, amongst other things. Everything was way beyond my expectations, and I am already planing my next trip staying for a longer period of time, since one week wasn't enough. I had the time of my life!
