I stayed at garden grove for 3 weeks in March. I came down for a surf trip looking for a calm quiet place to take a nap in between surf sessions. Susan and the garden grove crew were the absolute best hosts I've ever met in my travels. The place was clean and well taken care of. The casitas are...

If you are looking for a place to stay around Popoyo/Playa Santana/Mag Rock - look no further. Seriously. Don't even think about the other options. Book here, and be super stoked that you did. Susan, the owner, is a superstar. She has all the local knowledge that you need and really understands how to accommodate what you are looking for....

This is the place to be if you want to stay right at the beach, want to surf, do yoga, chill with friends and get to know the way of living in Nicaragua. Las casitas (bungalows) are clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The bathrooms are big with good shower. There is a nice garden to do yoga and...

We recently spent 4 nights at Garden Grove as a family of 4. We couldn't have been happier with the location near the beaches, the hospitality from Susan, and the sense of comfort at this small group of 4 separate casitas. We met some great people staying there. The lodging was clean and comfortable and had plenty of room. Daily...

We loved everything about our stay at Garden Grove Cassitas, from Fred and Susan and their hospitality, the Garden Grove dogs and puppies, Playa Santana, and Popoyo beach, the surf, the good life laying back in a hammock everyday, and the beautiful little Cassita that made a home away from home with everything we needed for the month. We had...

Thanks so much Susan, this place still remains one of our favorites in Nica! Walking distance to several great waves, including Popoyo, Santana and Mag Rock, as well as easy access to other great spots around. Short drive to Colorado and Gigante.

We chanced upon Garden Grove Beach Casitas after a hectic taxi experience in from Rivas. Suzie took us in, we had initially planned on staying for 3 nights but that turned into 10 days. The self-contained casitas are so well laid out with an excellently equipped kitchen-oven, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker and even a blender! The ensuite is spacious...

Susan at garden grove is awesome. The location is great. Wifi is strong, as long as you aren't inside the casita. Hanmocks everywhere, so comfy! We had a great time at this place and would definitely reccomend!

It was our first time in Nicaragua and we lucked out being able to stay at Garden Grove. Susan and Fred were both extremely welcoming, so easy going and just a joy to be around. Not only were they accommodating but they were very knowledgeable about the area. The Casita's are perfect for couples, family or a group of friends....

“The casita I stayed in, with some friends I made along the way, had an additional loft bed, ideal for sleeping slightly bigger groups or storing travel gear (surfboard bags, etc.)”
