From California December 19 2016 - December 26 2016

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

 

The house/casita was the perfect size for our family of 5. Highlights were Iain our concierge, Maria our cook, bicycles, waves, pool w/outdoor shower, Breakfast on the patio, Pili's restaurant and bar down the beach,First class surfing waves were steps away from beach.

 

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!

Gorgeous Casita, Owners Excellent to work with

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Jacksonville, FL September 06 2016 - September 15 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa La Selva's Casita - it was GORGEOUS! Very accommodating and soooo COMFORTABLE! Within steps to the ocean to surf, the wonderful owners having a rental truck delivered straight to us to surf other breaks, I've been to Nicaragua three times and this was the best trip/accommodations of them all! If we needed anything the owners were just a click away and happy to help.

 

When we go back we WILL stay here again. I can't even describe how comfortable the bed and just the whole accommodation was in general. Love love love. Nothing but excellent things to say and great memories! Looking forward to staying there again!

A Hidden Gem in the Jungle

From San Diego, California (USA) August 09 2016 - August 16 2016

We recently stayed at Casa la Selva for a week and couldn't ask for a better place. Upon arrival, the staff was very welcoming and helpful with any questions we had. David and James were very quick in getting back to me with anything I needed. From boat trips to silly questions, they have you covered! The property is gorgeous with all of the surrounding trees and wildlife. The furniture and layout of the houses are beautiful and very well kept.

 

Every morning we would walk down the beach access and check both surf spots. It is the perfect location in Hacienda Iguana!! The pool was refreshing to cool down on hot days and even lights up at night. We do miss riding our bikes around the community and being in paradise! The area around the house is very quiet and calm which made it easy to relax and enjoy the sounds of nature. We are already planning our next trip back! I would highly recommend staying here to make the most of your Nicaraguan getaway.

From Beach Haven, NJ (USA) March 25 2016 - April 01 2016

My husband, brother and girlfriend loved staying at Casa La Selva! It was clean, close to the beach, and the pool and outdoor shower were added bonuses. David was very helpful and answered all of our questions right away. The crew kept the house and property extremely clean. It's so close to beach and also felt very safe. My husband took advantage of the great surf across the street and I enjoyed going to yoga classes across the street at Mark and Dave's. Iguana beach club was also great for food, drinks and the pool.

 

I definitely would stay at Casa La Selva again and highly recommend it!!

From Jupiter, FL (USA) October 09 2015 - October 17 2015

Words don't do it justice... The people, the love, the food and the waves! So stoked my hombres and I got to spend the time down here and score all around! This house is so unbelievably comfortable and convenient to the best waves that I can't not tell everyone to check into it... Surfer, or not.

 

David and his team at N365 made for an epic stay and kept in touch with us for our needs and just good conversation. Can't wait to go back. Casa la Selva is a must for any Hacienda Iguana stay!!

Amazing Hideaway!

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Santa Barbara, CA August 06 2015 - August 17 2015

Our goal was to find a nice place to stay that was close to good surf; Casa la Selva, with all it’s good reviews, seemed to be just that place. Excellent choice! We spent 7 days there in August 2015, and our every expectation was exceeded. The accommodations are top-notch; a lot of little details that didn’t matter in our younger days are so much appreciated now. Things like comfortable beds and couches, ceiling fans, air conditioning, the deck and outdoor furniture, the amazing pool, and everything is so clean!

 

The staff also deserves high praise; not only did they meet our every whim, but they were thankful for the opportunity, which really made us feel welcome. We opted for the food plan, which I highly recommend; home cooked, fresh and healthy meals really added to the care-free nature of our stay.

 

The location of the property is perfect; we felt completely safe within the Iguana community, the beach is steps away and gorgeous, and the surf is groomed by offshore winds all day and was good to great the whole time.

 

If you are looking to Nicaragua for your next adventure, and want to travel with the peace of mind that someone is looking out for you, then you really can’t do better than Casa la Selva.

Best location close to surf

From Puerto Rico July 24 2015 - July 29 2015

If you are visiting Nicaragua with your girlfriend, this locations is perfect! I stayed at La Casita which is a nice little apartment behind the main Casa. The apartment had a VERY comfortable king bed (wish i could've brought it back home with me), and all the amenities of a house such as large refrigerator, big kitchen, stove, oven, washer, dryer, flat screen tv, reliable wi-fi, A/C, fans, futon, etc. It also counts with an electric generator with an automatic transfer switch that turns on when the electricity goes out. (and it goes out a lot). During my stay, the water heater was broken and we had to shower with cold water which was a setback for us, but i'm pretty sure this is something that has been fixed already. The location is very close to Panga Drops and relatively close (walking distance) to Colorado's. The location is in a very secure part of Hacienda Iguana and it also counts with a private security guy that makes sure everything is even more secure. Make sure to stock up on groceries at the Maxi Pali before arriving there because there are only a few and VERY expensive markets close by. The guys in charge of the property are really cool guys, especially David, which has contacts for anything you might need. He gave us the number for the local fisherman (Manuel) which became a really good friend of ours and brought us fresh mahi-mahi, lobster, octopus, shrimp on a daily basis, he even came home at night to cook us some local fresh ceviche. Also David has contacts for surf/fishing boat trips, horse rides, massages, and everything else you might need. He is always available on his phone or whatsapp.

 

The only bad experience for me was getting bit by a scorpion while looking for something inside my surf bag, but luckily, scorpions in Nicaragua are not deadly and all i got was a weird numbing sensation in my tongue plus a burning sensation on my hand equivalent to getting burned by a cigarrette. A great tip is: make sure to look inside any crevices or exposed pockets, corners, etc, before putting your hand inside.

 

Apart from this.. i can't wait to get back to Nicaragua and stay here again!! We fell in love with the offshore surf, the volcanoes, Hacienda Iguana, Popoyo, the culture, the people and everything!! If you have the budget, I recommend renting a 4x4 diesel and exploring Nicaragua. Also, download an offline map of Nicaragua via google maps so that you can use it while driving around.. it is a VERY precise way of driving.
