We stayed for three nights in a spacious bungalow with our two young girls - age 8 and 6. The girls loved the farm - seeing the goats, sheep, dogs and a monkey at breakfast! The bungalow was clean, with lovely comfy beds and plenty of hot water. A few bugs, but that’s what we expected and part of the fun! Great touches in the bungalows like posters of the birds you might see around the farm. Gorgeous, tasty breakfasts and Sherri made extra efforts to get cereals our daughter with allergies could eat. Sherri also reserved the ferry for us, as we were bringing our car, a kayaking trip and a guided walk to the volcano lookout with a really great local guide which was a fantastic experience. We walked to lovely restaurants at night which was fine with a torch. We had a really great time.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled with family

Thoroughly enjoyed this stay!

Friendly, accommodating hosts & easy access to Ometepe's bests! Hiked Volcan Maderas via a path from this farm's backyard, and with a guide easily arranged for via Sherri. Visited the most delicious and delightfully authentic restaurants, within walking distance and/or easily reached by cab. Walking distance to surreal, beautiful lake for swimming. Comfortable accommodations. Peaceful, relaxing landscape. I miss those goats!

Our family of four stayed five nights in the bamboo bungalow in January. The girls loved the bunkbeds and the queen bed was firm but comfy. The kids also loved interacting with the goats and the dogs. Sheri's suggestions for activities were always spot on, and the location is great for exploring the island and for just hanging out.

Room Tip: Bamboo has the best views

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay in the Orchid Loft at Finca del Sol. The room itself is beautiful and spacious and the views are stunning. Sheri and Cristiano are incredibly friendly and accommodating host and we loved getting to know them. We arranged a 1/2 day hike with a local guide through Sheri and had an amazing day exploring Maderas Volcano and even lucked out to see both howler and capuchin monkeys. The property/farm is beautiful, quiet, and isolated, but not too isolated (just a short 10-15min walk to restaurants, beach, etc)! And we really enjoyed walking through the farm both during the day and at night after dinner just make sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp. We only had the continental breakfast one morning and it was very nice, but otherwise we opted to try some of the local spots close by which were also very good. Highly recommend both Nectar (any meal) or Pizzeria Mediterranea Bar Ristorante (dinner). We really can't say enough wonderful things about this location and the hosts.

Just a few words of caution...I did find some critters on my nightly visits to brush my teeth including bats, frogs, toads, scorpions, spiders, centipedes etc. For me this made our stay a very special and unique experience but as mentioned in previous posts if you are a bit squeamish I'd recommend a different option. I think our only complaint, and it is so minimal, is that it would have been really nice to have a small sink in the loft, just for brushing teeth/washing hands without having to go out to the shared bathroom. But overall loved this spot and you will too!

Room Tip: Orchid Loft is spacious, comfortable, and peaceful, but has shared bathroom just outside

Finca del Sol has comfortable, well kept bungalows with amazing views in an ideal location. We have stayed here as a couple and with our kids too and it met our needs and surpassed our expectations both times! Sheri and Cristiano are warm and generous hosts, and you can feel the love they put in to creating this special place. The only downside is that it is so hard to leave!
