My husband and 11 and 12 yr old daughters and I arrived at Casa Mana and the first thing we found were cold beers and cupcakes in the fridge. Very nice! This modern home has everything you need including a roof top deck and air conditioning in the bedrooms. It's a short walk over to Los Cardones Surf Camp where they have great, fresh food and interesting people to hang out with. The beach itself goes on forever and was rarely populated with more than a couple people at a time. We aren't surfers but had a great time playing in the waves and exploring the shoreline. The girls went on a very affordable horseback ride while Tom and I took advantage of the $20 massages. An ocean breeze over bare skin, birds in the canopy, crashing waves and a soothing touch - for $20 you can't go wrong! If motion sickness is a problem for anyone in your group stock up on Gravol! The paved but twisting highway 8 leading down to the coast had one of my kids sick on the way in and the other one sick on the way out. While hard to stomach, the road features fantastic views of the rolling hills and ocean. Be sure you stock up on groceries in a major centre before turning off the PanAmerican, and be prepared to unplug for a while and just chill.

The house was perfect for our family! Big beds, AC in room, and kitchen fit all our needs. Roof top access was nice for check out the clear night skies. All our needs were quickly met. We will be back!

Our family of 5 stayed at Casa Mana for five nights. We had an amazing stay at the property. Days were spent strolling the un spoiled beaches, watching the wildlife, and exploring. Evenings were spent cooking home cooked meals, and enjoying a cervasa on the deck listing to the ocean. Janele was amazing having arranged a massage, fully stocked the house with bottled water, baked goodies, booked taxis, and was available for any questions we may have had. Our family felt safe and had a wonderful evening stay. We will be back for sure. The Eco lodge was also amazing. During our stay at Casa Mana we put up three of our daughters friends for four evenings. They had an amazing stay, rooms were clean, staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was great also, having had a family dinner there during our stay at Casa mana. Wonderful time had by all! Thank you

Just returned from a 1 week stay at Casa Mana and I'm already planning next year's trip. Janelle, the property manager, was super helpful in helping our group arrange transportation, a rental car, and groceries for the house when we arrived. She periodically checked in with us to make sure we were 100% satisfied, which we definitely were! The house is beautiful and is located a rock's throw from the Pacific Ocean. We spend almost every evening on the rooftop deck reminiscing about our multiple surfs each day and gazed at the stars as a pleasant breeze kept us cool. Nearby Los Cardones Ecolodge (walking distance) was a hot spot for us as the food was out of this world and the hospitality from the staff was amazing. Everyone there greeted us with a genuine smile and made sure we always had a cold Toña in our hands. The surf out front was fun all day long and it was nice to be able to take a mid-day nap at Casa Mana with the AC on blast. Lots of memories were made at Casa Mana this past week and we can't wait until our next trip down!

Just spent 1 week and Casa Mana was a great spot to enjoy our time at the beach. It's location was very close to the beach and Los Cardones. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Janelle, the manager was fantastic and answered all of our questions before and during our stay.

If you are looking for a beautiful deserted beach, this is your place. The house is located 30 seconds walk away from the beach and the local surf camp, and has everything you need. Two good size bedrooms and a great bathroom ensure your creature comforts are catered for. An added bonus is the roof top terrace. The locals are friendly and the property manager will make sure you have everything you need. I will definitely go back.

We just spent several nights at Casa Mana in Finca Del Mar, a peaceful well-maintained community about 1 hours from Managua. Casa Mana was very comfortable and nicely appointed with spacious rooms and outdoor space. Overall, very nice accommodations and Cardona's restaurant was a real bonus. Friendly staff, good food, and a great place to interact with other travelers. The house isn't on the beach but close enough. As others have stated, Janelle was fantastic - very friendly, responsive and provided great information about things to do in the area. Oh - and can't forget the home-made treats she had for us upon arrival. Very sweet. Thanks for a restful retreat!

Finca Del Mar is an amazing little community off the beaten path. If you are looking for peace and quiet look no further. Casa Mana is beautiful, and the air conditioning and hot showers are a coveted luxury here. The house had all we could ask for and Janelle the property manager is amazing. She brought us fresh baked goods and she'll even bring fresh caught fish to your door if you ask her! We can't wait to return with our two little ones. The beach offers so many places to explore and cool wildlife from bats to boas! Having a surf break right out your front door doesn't hurt either! Oh and private yoga sessions on the beach? Yes please! We love love loved it and will return.

We just spent a week here - it was a fantastic experience. Super chill zone, surf daily, and very comfortable house for a great deal. The A/C is key on hot afternoons, and nice to have two bathrooms. We had a group of five friends, and it was a perfect spot. The only thing I would say about the description is it isn't directly on the beach, but a very short walk away. You can hang at the bar at the surf lodge, or cook and relax at home in the nice kitchen. Stock up in managua, or Janelle can help arrange groceries. Speaking of, Janelle is great - everything was perfectly set up and effortless, including airport rides. I'd also recommend a fishing trip with Captain Dan - super fun, with plenty of fish to be battled, while hunting the elusive rooster. I'd def recommend the house to friends, and plan to return again!

We visited Casa Mana the first week of December, and it was perfect. We had a group of 4 people, so there was plenty of room. The driver, Elvis was on time to pick us up and drop us off. Upon our arrival, Janelle met us at the house and showed us around and introduced us to the folks at Los Cardones. Janelle really made the trip easy and extra enjoyable. She was so helpful, full of tons of information and suggestions and truly goes out of her way to make our stay the best possible. She even asked the night guards to let us know if they saw any sea turtles nesting or hatching. The two guards that were on duty near the house were super friendly and helpful, letting us know when there was turtle action going on and keeping us feeling safe. Casa Mana's kitchen was stocked with all the necessities and Janelle made sure we had plenty of purified drinking water, which was a big plus since we hauled in our weeks worth of groceries from the city. We had planned for a couple of meals at Los Cardones in lieu of cooking, and the food there was fresh and delicious. Other than Los Cardones, there was no other food options within walking distance except for Gran Pacifica, but that was about a 30 min walk north, and we did not try eating there. We rented surfboards from Los Cardones, they had a decent selection. The staff and management at Los Cardones was friendly and helpful. They informed us that since we were not staying at the lodge, the guests at the lodge had priority over us if they preferred to use one of the boards we had selected. Also, if you rent boards from them, make sure you get the board inspection done when you return it at the end of the day each day, just as a precaution so you won't be liable for any damages that may have occured overnight. There was a board available for rent from Casa Mana, we used it for a couple days since the selection at Los Cardones became slim pickings, and it's a fun board for the break right in front of the house.
