I was so nervous to book a villa from a private owner over the Internet but We decided to take the chance, and two weeks later we were absolutely blown away. This villa was truly a beautiful adventure. The villa was huge! There was only two of us and our little girl so we really only used a couple rooms total. The architecture inside was breath taking. Surrounding our villa was a family of howling monkeys, which was so cool to see! With the security guard standing outside our villa 24hrs, as well as the secured gate to enter the community, we always felt safe. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!! It was truly incredible.
“Beautiful, quiet and peaceful Villa”
The photos cannot capture what a lovely home this is. Beautifully designed, amazing view and tremendously peaceful. With no windows the air is perfect and breezes relaxing. My girlfriend and I spent a week here and it was perfect for us, and would be ideal for a larger group as well. Well worth the bumpy dirt road ride from town. We cooked breakfast and dinner here daily (including fish we caught) as both of us have worked in restaurants for years (me on the wine side) and I have a food blog. Plenty of utensils, pots, pans etc. We do recommend making a trip to the street markets in Rivas for your produce...better quality and better variety (and less expensive). We surfed (and stood among huge Manta rays) at Playa Maderas, lazed on the beach at Playa Majaguel, helped baby turtles to the sea at La Flor, went night fishing catching 40 red snapper. Wonderful time. Thank you
We loved our stay at the Forest and Surf Villa. The house is an architectural gem - very open, beautiful wood, gorgeous views of the ocean. We spent most of our time on the porch swing. We traveled with an infant (5.5 months), toddler (2.5 years) and four adults (including two seniors) and it all went so well. A gorgeous, quiet beach is a short drive from the villa. We heard lots of monkeys, but they were never a nuisance. The beds are comfy, there is a washer and dryer and the place comes with two surf boards and yoga mats. It also stays fairly cool there - compared to the beach. We were never bothered by mosquitoes. Things to know: the drive down to Sjds is long-ish and bumpy, so get supplies in advance. It is very helpful to bring a flash light or headlamp for when you get back after dark, although the paths to the villa are well lit. We didn't have hot water or wireless for the first two days, but it was then fixed (probably would have been fixed sooner, but it was Christmas). The lighting in the kitchen is unpleasant and the kitchen needs more glasses and bowls and a big cutting board. These are all small things, though - we loved our time there.
Wonderful house, wonderful surroundings. Note, though, the house is a solid 30 min ride from town via tough dirt roads. Would certainly recommend this house. It was a wonderful retreat. And, the trip to town isn't a big deal if you're planning to spend alot of time at the house and/or at Playa Maderas.
“Adventure in Paradise”
We had extremely high hopes for our stay in Nicaragua and, specifically, for the Forest and Surf Villa. Everything exceeded those high hopes. We were a group of 4 and we each wanted to do different things on vacation. We were united by wanting to have an adventure, but I wanted to surf, others wanted to do yoga and explore the local culture, and others wanted to lounge around with a cocktail. If you are looking for an all-inclusive, lounge at a private and perfectly manicured vacation - this is not for you. However, if you are looking for an adventure where you can wake up each day and choose whether you want to be active or lazy - I can't think of a better place. It's a few minutes out of town and is quite an adventure getting there - bumpy roads and pot holes but you are surrounded by incredible beauty. The house is fascinating, interesting, beautiful, spacious and completely peaceful. The view is spectacular and literally takes your breath away every morning. We were woken up to the sounds of howler monkeys, felt like we were truly in a tree house and didn't have to sacrifice all of that for incredible luxury. Nearby is Playa Maderas - the perfect place to sip on beers, surf, sip on beers, surf on beers, and surf. The town is 20 minutes away but the peace and solitude of the house makes that so worth it. So, if you are looking for an adventure, solitude and beauty and are willing to put up with a bit of a trek and not having amenities a walk away - The Forest and Surf Villa is an adventure in Paradise.
Forest and Surf Villa is a real paradise! Feel in peace, connected to nature...
Perfect and comfortable beachhouse , huge inside, it has Everithing we need, nice pool, awesome view, perfect for an afternoon BBQ with your friends after a nice session at Maderas or El Jankee. Nice large bedrooms.. you will sleep like a baby! Thankyou Sunshine and amadeo!!!
The home is perfectly balanced giving both a nature setting with easy access to shopping, beaches, and more. With an amazing view of the beach and in night you feel as though you are sleeping under the stars do to the design or this spectacular house. The owner was helpful in every way offering assistance with anything we needed. The caretaker of this property was one of the nicest person I have ever met. He was always available and assisted us several times. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a safe pleasant place to vacation.
Driving up to the house, you realize, you really are going to be staying "away from it all". Close enough to San Juan del Sur, that you can take a day trip to the beaches and restaurants if you feel the need, the three and a half bedrooms, open living space and deck really give you enough space to make yourself at home. My friends and I had a great time just lazing around, reading books and slipping into the pool now and again. I think we used the kitchen space the most... meals and cocktails... bring a blender :)
“A beautiful getaway from the ordinary day-to-day living”
Everything you need is provided in a beautiful scenic setting. Comfortable and clean accommodations. A pleasant walk will lead you to the ocean. A short drive will take you into town. A little more of a drive can take you to one of the must-see volcanoes of Nicaragua! I highly recommend Forest and Surf Villa.
