“Great food and above and beyond service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Thank you, Gary! My boyfriend and I came in to eat and found ourselves getting tons of information from you, with a smile, as well as letting us use your personal cell phone to book a horseback riding trip you recommended that ended up being a highlight of our stay on Ometepe. We loved the atmosphere of your restaurant, the food and the welcoming service you and your servers provided so much that we ate there 2 days in a row! Definitely a must-go place if you are in Moyogalpa.

We just spent 3 nights in Cornerhouse and I can easily say this was the best place we experienced in Nicaragua. The rooms are nice, simple and very clean. This you can find somewhere else as well, but I think it is rather difficult to beat the service and hospitability provided by Gary. He is super nice, provides top breakfast (granola with home made yoghurt, tropical fruits, capuccino, etc...) and he seems to really enjoy what he is doing. He would show us how he roasts his coffee, woke in the middle of the night to prepare us breakfast before we left for Costarica, offer free drinking water in the room, etc...
I don't write reviews often but he definitely deserves one.

P.S. We forgot to mention that even his cafe downstairs is superb with all the coffees, cakes and delicious lunches...

I stayed at The Cornerhouse for two nights. The room was basic but beautifully set out. The beds were comfortable and cleanliness was to the upmost standard. I don't often write reviews on TripAdvisor but I have gone out of my way to write this one because of how much I enjoyed my stay here. The price (which is extremely decent) includes breakfast which is delicious! The owners are so lovely and helpful. You definitely can't pass up the opportunity to stay here if you're on Ometepe.

Wow! It's hard to find NICE food in Nicaragua, but the super friendly couple that runs this place sure knows what travelers are craving for!
The bread, vegetables, coffee, pretty much everything they serve is home made and delicious! Both of the owners are really nice and a good chat to find out more about the island or even just a nice conversation.
I haven't seen the rooms, but the restaurant is really cozy and clean, so I can imagine the rooms are too. I'd definitely go back!

Not only the nicest place on the island, also the nicest people. Gary and Laura have it right treating you as their guest in their small but cozy B&B. You can't go wrong here, and their welcoming smiles are just a small reflection of the hospitality you'll receive in this very exceptionally priced accommodation.

Gary and Laura know exactly what is required for travelers on the move. Clean, central, really close to the ferry back off the island, very personal service, great fresh delicious food with unbiased local knowledge and advice with no spin! We stayed an extra night. The agua springs are lovely and the people are welcoming. If you do the waterfall trip in the wet season (sept when it's more humid) hire the white Toyota diesel landcruiser from the guy down the road - ask Gary- she is sturdy with guts for the rocky roads and will not let you down!

Room Tip: Corner room is bigger, more windows for a good breeze but the price is more noise from the street so...

All around good choice if you are in Ometepe and want to use Moyogalpa as your base. 5-10 minute walk up the main drag from the ferry landing, can't miss it on your right side.

Clean, stylish, comfortable rooms on the second floor with a first rate restaurant down below (and lounge / bar on the way, I hear). Easily the most comfortable bed I had in Nicaragua, and the restaurant seems to serve as a bit of a salon for the local expat community, which is handy if you want a few tips. Also offers surprisingly fast free wi-fi. All around, highly recommended spot, from a traveler who has spent time in about 50 countries, most of them of the less developed variety.

Room Tip: all rooms are about the same...in a line on the second floor, with windows onto the main drag in Moy...
