“Fresh Clean Room”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

Two things here: the restaurant & the hotel. Restaurant: could eat there every day. Just a basic cafe but all the kinds of breakfast foods, smoothies & lunch that I like. Perfect for vegetarians. Got into some fascinating conversations there too. Ok, only there one night, but probably met 6 or 7 people at the restaurant or by my room that I could talk to for hours.

The room: basic. Smelled like new wood. Pleasant staff. Didn't meet the owners: they were gone then. Was on the corner, opened windows on two sides & liked the fresh air & ceiling fan. Downside was street noise. Also could hear the people in the next room. Earplugs recommended, but that was the case with most hotels where we stayed. If not street noise it was the wind (very intense for a few days) or a rattling air conditioner. We did look for a minute at The Landing, & the room we saw smelled of Lysol/cleansers while this one seemed newer/cleaner/fresher. Overall enjoyed our two days & one night there.

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.
