“Amazing place to stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

If you ever travel to San Juan Del Sur, do yourself a favor and stay here. 3 bedroom, sleeps 7. 2 amazing beaches right below you, howler monkeys all around, parrots, amazing. The on site caretakers are friendly, fun, and amazingly just disappear until you need something. I will go back and stay here again. We rented a land cruiser in SJDS from beachcruisers.com that was perfect for the roads. Do yourself a favor and go !

My wife and two daughters stayed at Casa Cresta for a week. It was a fantastic location. The property is in great condition. Everything about the week was top notch beginning with Gabby, the rental agent. She was very helpful...drove with us to the house and introduced us to Eddie and Anita, the caretakers. Eddie and Anita were very helpful throughout our stay. Eddie always made sure the pool was clean. My daughters made a new friend...Eddie and Anita's daughter played with them daily. It was fun practicing our Spanish with them. We invited them for dinner one evening and had a great time. The area has a lot to offer. We went whale watching, arranged through Gabby, and saw whales and had a great time. Additionally we zip lined and enjoyed playas Maderas, Marsella and Hermosa. We will definitely be back.

“Beautiful Relaxation!”
Reviewed 12 April 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Casa Cresta provided the perfect location for our stay in Nicaragua. Located within walking distance from Playa Maderas and Playa Marsella we were able to hit all the best surf conditions. Relaxing on the huge elevated patio overlooking the southern valley and playa Marsella was gorgeous. Moving from a lounge chair to a hammock and then a dip in the pool it was easy to unwind and enjoy some novels. The observation deck on the roof also gave great views of the brilliant stars. There were some great restaurants close by and a short drive to San Juan Del Sur made it easy for anything from shopping to restaurants to nightlife.
The master suite enjoys its own bathroom, shower and private entrance to the deck. The living space was comfortable and open. The breeze on the top of the hill kept the place cool, but there was also A/C for the bedrooms. The kitchen had everything we need to prepare meals and frozen drinks.
The friendly "house minder" named Juan lives with his wife and daughter set away from the house in a smaller bungalow. He keeps the pool clean and watches over the house which provided a real sense of security and safety.
