We just returned back to Canada this morning and could not wait to write a review on this property. We (family of 4) could not have asked for better, more relaxing vacation away. Luis was a God send, eager and happy to drive us anywhere for groceries, day trips and for fresh fish/lobster. Lesbia was a must for anyone considering renting this house. She cooked for us, did laundry, cleaned and became makeshift mom/grandma to us. Her and Luis made a birthday celebration to remember for our daughter, who turned 10. Ballooon on every pillar, and in the pool. Special meals all day, just wonderful all around. Pool was cleaned everyday, food was fresh, local and delicious and everysunset, magical. As a family, we felt safe, road horses on the beach, bought from the locals and left some toys and clothes for the locals. This was an adventure and not for you if you only do all inclusive resorts. An adventrue we all cried leaving behind. Jaimie was quick to respond to any questions leading up to the trip including the day of our arrival with a 'have fun' message that included Luis' mobile number just incase. 10/10 for our family from Canada, we miss our new friends already!

Overall, we had a nice stay in Pochomil. However, there were a few things I wish I would have known about the property prior to booking, which may have influenced my selection. I must first begin by saying that the services provided by Jamie, Luis & Lesbia were top notch! If the review alone were on their services it would be an easy 5/5. Jamie was quick to respond, helpful, and thorough in his responses to questions. Luis was excellent - he was on time in picking us up at the airport, open to driving us wherever (including a day trip to Granada and the volcano before taking us back to the airport the following day). It was also a huge help that he was quick to oblige in driving to town to pick up groceries multiple times during our stay. Lesbia was an excellent chef and cooked for our group of six 3 days. The meals she prepared were absolutely delicious local cuisine, with extremely reasonable prices. These three provided top notch customer service! Although I could tell the property had newer painting in some rooms, it could certainly use some updates. The one piece of information I wish I would have realized before booking, and what is not clear from the pictures, was how close the houses would be on either side of this property. Both sides had houses within 1-2 meters of the property, making it not as private as I had hoped. Otherwise, I found most of the pictures on the website to be accurate (it is right on the beach, the swimming pool was pretty well maintained & appeared as advertised, and the rooms had most of the furniture and beds pictured) the bedrooms could use some attention. The beds were adequate, but several years old. The pillows were noticeably used & flat, and the sheets and towels provided were quite basic. The level of cleanliness in the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen was was not great. In the bedroom on the first level there were cobwebs and dirt in the corners (the same with the kitchen - although it is a separate building about a meter behind the main structure of the house which explains it). The air conditioning units made random clunking noises in two of the bedrooms, making it challenging to sleep at night (it was pretty warm with little wind at nights during our stay). Although these were not major issues, for the price paid, I did not expect to find this. In general, we had a nice time. Jamie, Luis & Lesbia made Nicaragua a great experience for our group. With a little TLC I would recommend staying here.

I have never been so inspired to write a review (and simultaneously wondering if I should - do I really want you to know how great this place is? Because i'd prefer to have it available for every time - which will be often - that my family wants to go :)). This is not an overly fancy place. Nica Beach House is more rustic, perfectly comfortable, and has the RIGHT luxuries prioritized: the amazing food (if you have Lesbia cook for you) and the pool (pristine, perfectly big, perfect temperature and shade, wonderful for kids and adults). Luis takes wonderful care of the property and it was clean and perfect for us. I'll upload my photos as soon as I figure out how so you can see for yourself. We went as two couples (parents, grandparents) and two small kids and it was all sorts of perfect for us. We will be back so often the caretakers will know us better than the owners :P. I want to eat Lesbia's food every day. One small area for improvement: It's hot. Nica Beach house recognizes that and has air conditioners in the bedrooms - but two of them need maintenance. And the balcony and ground floor could use fans.

The Home was better than advertised, Jamie was more than helpful throughout. Luis is a lifesaver I would not drive in Managua or the unmarked back roads without Luis, and I have driven many places. Be sure to have Lesbia cook for you when there AWESOME. Luis's brother owns a pizza place and it was soooo good, Luis even picked it up for us. You are about a 15-20 min walk down the beach (go at low tide) from Pochomil hotel (1st restaurant )then Pochomil is say 5-10 past that.. Very quiet Beach if that's what your looking for, which we were. Place is great highly recommend

This beach front home far exceeded our expectations. It is very remote and a bit rustic but that adds to the allure and makes it extra special. I travelled with my wife and 2 kids ages 2 and 4. Luis met us at the airport and drove our car back to the house which is highly recommended. He'll take you to Pricemart (costco) to get your staples for the week which is a must. It was our first time in Nicaragua and we felt very safe but Luis made it so much more comfortable as he's a really enjoyable guy to be around and a wealth of knowledge. We hired Luis' sister Lesbia and her cooking was incredible! I wouldn't recommend renting without her. They have a brother that can get you the freshest red snapper I've ever had. We also bought lobster which she prepared and flounder for fresh ceviche. The house itself was about a 10-15 minute drive down a dirt road from Pochomil/Masachapa. We typically spent most days surfing, lounging in the pool and playing on the beach which can get hot and windy depending on the time of day. Lot's of sun and shade around the pool. It's not a luxurious home but very comfortable, the privacy, exclusiveness and staff are probably the most appealing part. It was very casual as we pretty much lived in our bathing suits. It made for longer days and more time in the water as we didn't have to get ready for lunches and dinners. The beach campfire was so unique and nothing we had done before in the south, the kids loved it. If your into surfing this is a great spot away from the crowds. Luis is an excellent surfer and always up to join you. He'll even give you lessons if your a beginner so a great spot to learn. There are better breaks within driving distance but it was so convenient being able to walk out from the house. It was a family vacation with the bonus of being able to catch a few waves and not spend the whole day away from them. We stayed in San Juan Del Sur for the last 4 nights, I've you've never been it's worth checking out but not nearly as authentic as Pochomil. It made us truly appreciate how great our stay was at this beach house. Tips: - Rent a decent car - Hire Lesbia - Get fresh seafood - Order pizza from Luis's and Lesbia's other brother! - Bring clothes, shoes, baseball gloves, etc. There is a lot of poverty and the country is still very much developing if you can bring items with you to give away the locals appreciate it very much.

My husband and I, our daughter, her husband and our two grandchildren spent two wonderful weeks at the beach house. We arrived from Toronto Canada on a direct flight into Managua where Luis met us at the airport. We rented a vehicle and put him as the primary driver and he became our chauffeur for the next two weeks. The house is on a very isolated stretch of beach . Don’t let the waves intimidate you. The ocean is amazing as is the pool . We hired Lesbia to cook for us and she brought out all kinds of wonderful things. Our grandchildren can be picky and so she also made things for them that they liked. We would recommend this place highly but remember it is a rustic Beachhouse . You will not find any tourists there maybe a few horses and the odd pig . It was an amazing learning experience for us especially our grandchildren .

Our family, including 3 boys ages 11,10, and 4, had a great time at this house. It truly was paradise. The view was amazing, the pool was perfect, the landscape beautiful, and the beach was amazing. It was secluded, quiet, just simply perfect! Luis helped us with anything we needed, he took me to get groceries, answered all our questions, he is so nice. Plus his sister Lesbia is an outstanding cook, she made us huge meals with the best sauces I have ever had. Definitely a place we would like to back to! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Owner before advertising his property probably, must know the difference between private beach and community.Be prepared to share beach with dogs, horses, pigs, and piles of garbage. And something happened with white sand. May be it was washed by ocean? Or wrong time of the year? Beside that "newly renovated house" looks pretty obsolete inside,not seeing touch of the brush for many years. No comments about appliances. View breathtaking, air fresh, caretakers friendly.

To stay in this magical surf Hacienda is like being welcomed into a family. It was very hard to leave this beautiful slice of paradise. Luis and Lesbia, the brother and sister team that guide, feed, take care of, welcome, chauffeur and educate the guests that stay here are like gold. The authentic meals and personal food requests were delicious and healthy and fruitful to say the least. The knowledge of Luis with regard to surf spots, the surrounding areas, and nuggets of advice were welcome and helpful. The property was very clean and beautifully maintained. Our group included grandparents AND kids and this place did not disappoint! It had hammocks, a big pool, comfy seating areas, enough bathrooms and plenty of seats at the dining table (al fresco!) to make this thanksgiving an unforgettable experience for our family. Luis was always around to drive us, answer questions, arrange activities (he knows practically everyone, we started calling him the Mayor;) which made this vacation so effortless. And his sister Lesbia needs to put out her own cook book, she’s such a gifted chef. The owner of the property was wonderful to interact with and was very responsive. We truly left our hearts in Pochomil.
