“Amazing casitas, amazing location, amazing owners!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stayed at garden grove for two weeks and would have stayed longer if we didn't have to move on to catch up with our mates. The owners Susanne and Fred are fantastic hosts and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The casitas are amazing... The best we have staying in through Central by far!! Equipped with a fully functional kitchen, full size refrigerator/freezer and filtered water was fantastic! It gave us the option of cooking meals at our leisure and of course keeping our beer ice cold! The casitas also have everything you could ever need from a torch to coffee maker and even some board games... These guys have thought of it all. Garden grove is conveniently located between two popular surf breaks... Santana's lefts and popoyo. They have boards you can use there which was ideal for us as we had to leave our boards behind in Mexico. They also have a 24hr security guy on the property so you can rest or leave your casita for a day trip with peace of mind. Can't recommend this place highly enough!!! We will be back next time we visit nicaragua.

Staying at Garden Groves was the highlight of my trip in Nicaragua. The casitas were clean and comfortable, and there was a great community of people. The beach was absolutely beautiful and untouched by tourists and litter. I would highly recommend making Garden Groves part of your travels.

Susan picked us up from the border, brought us out for drinks and toured us around the coast. We stayed 3 days and wished we could've stayed longer. They made sure we always had exactly what we needed in our Casita and provided us with all the information we needed regarding our travels. Situated in a peaceful/quiet part of the coast, Garden Grove is perfect for relaxing, surfing, making friends (travelers/locals) and enjoying all that Nicaragua has to offer. Can't wait to return!

Thanks again Susan and Fred:)

Garden Grove is awesome. First of all, the casitas are super nice and have amenities you will definitely want while staying in that area.They have the perfect size, a full kitchen, private bathroom, a cute patio with fans and hammocks...All these amenities are nice because you wont find that many nice places to stay around there for that price. The owners, Susan and Fred are super open and cool and will attend you with anything you need. They offer food/beers/drinks for great prices! They are located beach front, have a shower on site and you will meet lots of people around that area...My husband and I lived there for 6 weeks and would hang out at Garden Grove everyday and made life time friends. We are definitely coming back and staying there. Highly recommend this place.

Stayed here for 16 days with my girlfriend. The Casitas have everything to make your stay comfortable, fridge to keep drinks cold and keep food, fully equipped kitchen (oven/hob/microwave/toaster etc), good shower, 2 beds, wifi, fans, drinking water tank is provided and a patio with hammocks and a set of table and chairs so you can hang out in the shade, my personal favourite part of the Casitas.
Location is great short walking distance to several surf spots and places to eat.
Susan and Fred are great owners and were very helpful throughout our stay helping arrange a day trip to Granada, grocery shopping, transport and showing us Yolanda's restaurant.
Everything about our stay was excellent from the moment we were picked up from the airport to the moment we were dropped off. Cannot thank Susan & Fred enough.

we stayed 6 weeks in gardengrove's casitas. the casitas were just built and nice and comfortable. kitchenette, private bathroom, patio with hammocks, comfortable beds, wifi, ipod connector sound system. the kitchen was equipped with everything you need to cook.

the owners susan and fred were always very nice, helpful and funny :) we could also join them when going to rivas for groceries or ATM. also you can buy beer and coca cola directly from them.

since gardengrove still was under construction sometimes the noise of construction bothered me - but for that the rates were lower, so it was ok.

i would definately come back to gardengrove because the value for money was awesome and the owners are nice people. on playa santana this is my favorite place to stay!
