“Another great 2 weeks in Villa Carmen”
This was our second stay at Villa Carmen and it was just as great as the first! The property is well maintained and the staff very friendly. The view of San Juan del Sur bay at sunset is amazing, happy hour cocktails on the back porch are definitely recommended. The house is perfectly located about a 3 minute drive from downtown and another 15-20 minutes from the better surfing beaches down south. A vehicle is kind've a must to experience all this area has to offer. I can't comment on the pool/restaurant as we never went there. However, I can say that if you're coming all the way down to Nica and spending the majority of your time within the confines of the property, you're wasting your vacation; get out and explore! And remember, this isn't North America, things move slowly down here so don't be salty if your food takes a while to get to the table! We will definitely be staying here for our next trip!
“A quiet refuge close to everything San Juan Del Sur offers...”
Our hosts Stephan and Carmen were stellar ! They addressed any shortcomings in the kitchen supply department promptly, and made themselves available for anything a visitor might require from directions to suggestions for dinner. Returning home to the lovely pool at the end of our days at the beach was refreshing. The resort Cafe was disappointing in staff attentiveness and training, but the food was fresh and tasty, albeit late in arriving at the table. Overall, a relaxing resort and stimulating cultural experience !
Response from the owner Thank you for your review, Lou and Dennis. I have forwarded your concerns about the restaurant service to the Manager. I appreciate your feedback. Regards, Stephan
“Great holiday in a great place.”
The villa was a very modern, comfortable place. Two bedrooms with plenty of space. Spacious kitchen with all the amenities. Great views of the bay area from the veranda. The pool area along with the restaurant area is very nice. Plenty of room to relax and suntan. It's a 20' walk to the downtown area, but the complex offers hourly shuttles to the town for free. Staff is great and very helpful.
Response from the owner I am glad you enjoyed your time, Alex. If you need a break from the Canadian Winter next year let me know. Regards, Stephan
We stayed here for 3 months and it was a wonderful experience. The villa was just out of town so it was nice and quiet.The sunsets on the veranda every night were just breathtaking.The villas themselves were very well kept and comfortable. Plenty of space.The pool is very close and is very relaxing with the restaurant right there it is easy to get drinks or something to eat.Great place to meet people and to get there ideas on what to do and where to go in the area. Stephan and Carmen are great to work with you will not be disappointed.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review, Gary and Anita. It was a pleasure to get to know you a bit and I hope our paths will cross in the future. Regards, Stephan
“Great 3 week stay in Villa Carmen”
I recently stayed at Villa Carmen for 3 weeks with a few friends for a surf vacation. The house sits on top of a hill overlooking the bay of San Juan del Sur. The sunsets from the back porch and master bedroom balcony are amazing! The service is exceptional; reception staff is friendly and they speak English fluently, maid service is outstanding as well. Would highly recommend this house to everyone, we will definitely be returning!
Response from the owner Ben, thank you for your review, and we look forward to helping you with next trip to Nicaragua! Regards, Stephan
“A peaceful safe getaway in a beautiful spot!”
We stayed at villa carmen for 12 nights in Feb 2013. Everything was as advertised and met and exceeded our expectations. dealing with the owner was a breeze and they were very helpful to answer any questions. the villa is located about 30 minutes by foot from the town of San Juan del Sur. The villa is very spacious and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped if you we're inclined to cook. There is a locking cabinet for passports and valuables. the villa is cleaned once a week, but could be done more if needed for a small fee I think. there are plenty of extra towels if needed and laundry service available. we ate at the restaurant quite a bit and the food was always good and the beer cold. staying here, you are charged for electricity used. This amounted to 78 dollars for 12 nights. we used the central air only when in the villa, and used the unit air conditioning at night in the room. we shut lights off when not in rooms( we do this anyways) and used the stove every day for breakfasts. so if you are conscious of your usage, it is cheap. If you have mobility issues you may find the walk from the villas into town challenging, but the reception has free shuttles available. we most definitely will recommend this place to friends and would stay here again! Nicaragua is a beautiful place that is worth a trip.
Response from the owner We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Villa Carmen and we appreciate your kind words, Kim. It was our pleasure to help you with your vacation. Thank you, Stephan and Carmen
“We had a wonderful experience”
Villa Carmen is a magical place perched up on a hill providing a vista view of the ocean, and setting sun from the villas deck. The Villa itself is well appointed, and cared for. Its a short walk, or bike ride to the sleepy village of San Juan del Sur. Which is surrounded by white sand beached. The small restraunts that line the shore serve fresh fish daily at a very reasonable price. Sit back and enjoy! I look forward to my next relaxing visit.
Response from the owner I am glad you felt some of the same magic we feel when we are there! Come and stay again real soon. Thank you for your review.
“Incredible value with gorgeous views”
My wide and I stayed for 10 days at Christmas time last year and had amazing vacation. The Villa is beautifully decorated with locally made furnishings and art work. Full kitchen in the villa and a great restaurant/bar adjacent to the pool. The villa has 2 master suites both with ensuites and beautiful views, including amazing sunsets!! There is a nice garden patio right outside perfect for an evening drink or morning coffee. The villa is located on the hill just above San Juan del sur. We did not rent a car so it took us about 15-20 minutes to walk right into San Juan to shop or hit the beach. Taxi service is also very cheap and the villa complex had a free shuttle into town. We liked being a few minutes away from the city noise, it was really a quiet and peaceful place, even at Christmas! We loved everything and will definatly be going back!
Response from the owner Thank you for your review. We look forward assisting you with a future vacation!
“A dream vacation in a beautiful setting”
We had a topnotch stay at Villa Carmen. The home is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and in a great location. We had beautiful ocean views, watched sunset from the patio, and had the luxury of a great restaurant onsite, a lovely swimming pool, and a safe environment. We had daily maid service, could walk to town or take their free shuttle, and there is a television with a DVD player for down time. I loved the layout of the condo., the location was quiet, and the service great. There was absolutely nothing to complain about.
Response from the owner As the owners of Villa Carmen, it is heart warming to hear when people enjoy their stay as much as we enjoy being there! Thank you for sharing your review.
