From Managua, Nicaragua December 07 2018 - December 09 2018

The house was spectacular and its location was the best. We loved the details in furniture and great taste. It was furnished as all Airbnb houses should. We were very impressed with the furniture quality and the housekeepers' hospitality and responsiveness. We would definitely book this great house again.

Amazing house

From Los Angeles , California April 30 2018 - May 06 2018

“This house was amazing! Beautiful California beach vibe in Nica.


Everything was clean, stylish, and comfortable for our large group including many children! Hola Nicaragua (Nicaragua365) took care of anything we needed on our trip including airport transport, massages, rides to closer destinations and the amazing chefs!


Julieta and Maria the care takers and amazing chefs I mentioned above made our trip! We were melting over every meal and they were amazing with our children as well. They cooked things that were kid friendly and just went out of their way to make everyone happy! The house and the trip was incredibly special we can’t wait to go back!”

From Boston February 03 2018 - February 10 2018

Quite possibly the best location in Hacienda Iguana! Far enough away from the beach bar and HOA pool for privacy, yet close enough for a quick stroll to happy hour. We've stayed at other ocean front homes at Iguana in the past, but none had the charm and ambience of Encantos. Fantastic staff . . .you really need to sample Julietta's cooking . . . and wonderfully furnished with authentic Nica charm. Great swimming pool and outdoor areas. Functional kitchen, and a good choice of bedrooms with an additional casita available on the property. Howler Monkeys and Turtles abound. We will be back next year!

I will definitely be coming back to Hacienda Iguana and Casa Encanto. N365 has done an incredible job maintaining the property. The maid service and food preparation/cooking was 5 stars. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

The perfect week in paradise.

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Chicago, IL (USA) December 02 2017 - December 09 2017

We had an amazing week at Encanto. We were two families, with 4 adults and 5 kids ranging in age from 6 to 12 and the house was perfect. Amazing location on the beach, steps from surfing, swimming and jumping waves. The pool was a refreshing change of pace from the ocean, and the kids spent time in it almost every morning before breakfast. Speaking of meals, Julietta prepared all our meals and the food was incredible. She did a great job of serving some traditional Nica dishes while also providing a few more familiar items with each meal for the kids (pasta, rice, fruit, eggs etc). Having Julietta handle all of the shopping, cooking and clean up gave us hours a day of extra vacation time.


In our week at the house, everyone was incredibly attentive to our needs, with frequent communication from David and Iaian to ensure we were getting the experience we wanted. Speaking of Iain, he was quick to help us line up surfboard and boogie board rentals, massages in the house, horseback riding on the beach, surf lessons, guided tours of Granada and Ometepe and even a morning out on the water catching some Spanish mackerel (which Julietta was quick to clean and grill for our lunch that day!). Our last night in town we were able to catch a baseball game in Rivas, which was a blast.


The house itself is wonderful, with tons of space to spread out and enjoy the open air design. Shady spots to recline and read, catch a quick nap in a hammock. Comfortable beds, hot showers, wifi, cold A/C and a TV in the front room that was never turned on once. That's a testament to all there is to do and enjoy here at Encanto.


Pro tip - Finishing the day by walking down to Pili's for happy hour at 4:00 was great! It's the community's HOA facility that has a nice pool, bar, restaurant and amazing views of the best surf spot in the area. Enjoying a cold drink, letting the kids swim/play volleyball and watching the sun set behind the legit surfers before walking back to the house for another expertly prepared meal made it hard to leave. If you have found this property as you are researching a trip, stop researching and book. You've found paradise!

The property is the most beautiful on the grounds

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Jacksonville, Florida November 08 2017 - December 13 2017

The property is the most beautiful on the grounds. The staff is simply best, they were so pleasant and helpful and always around in case of anything.


They made us feel like we were always being looked after. It was more than we could have asked for.


The concierge, Ian and property manager David were so helpful and friendly. Ian is the kind of guy you can call for anything and does everything to try to help. This was with all our friends who stayed at the 365 properties. It was all just perfect!

Great time

From California July 04 2017 - July 09 2017

Not surfers, went with family (young children) and had a great time. Beach is beautiful and the community is safe and peaceful. Great for biking around. The one negative was the lack of music in the house. Definitely a great place to relax.
