  • Very clean. The house was bigger than I thought. The Terrasse was good for chilling and doing workout. To the beach it's a quick walk. To the supermarket and the surfspot a bit longer. Was a quite and cozy stay.

  • Great casita just a few mins walk from the beach. In a quiet, secluded spot, yet when we were there lots of wind keeping the house cool. JJ who helped us wit the check-in is really helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The casita is spotless and really good value.

    Al & Fabiola2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in Casitas Popoyo! The kitchen is very well equipped for home cooking, with large fridge, freezer, blender, etc. Wi-Fi is quite reliable and works for remote working. It's only 2 min from the beach and a 15 min walk to the mini market. It is a nice quiet place, perfect for couples and remote working. The local manager speaks good English and is always helpful.

  • Elena has made her beach Casita very welcoming and comfortable! Little things she has thought of are very noticeable! Great Bed linens!!! And a gas stove top!!! Got to luv that!! Recommend her casita if you are visiting the area!!

    Kim2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is great for many reasons. The neighborhood is quiet, which means there's no loud music or construction happening around you. Everything inside is well thought for comfort and practicality. The lamps are pieces of art and lightning is warm. The photos don't reflect enough how good Elena's place is. Watching birds and squirrels from the terrace was priceless.

    Hector Ricardo2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • It is the second time we have stayed in this little house and it will not be the last, the house is perfect for a couple who wants to relax for a weekend. It has a private garage, equipped kitchen and a terrace that is definitely our favorite part of the house, perfect for a couple of glasses of wine and some background music.

    Popoyo, Rivas Department, Nicaragua

    Beautiful 2 bedroom house 2 min walk to the beach, located in the Guasacate- Popoyo region. Amazing Wifi, apple tv, fully equipped kitchen, hot water, air conditioner on each bedroom. You will really relax at this beautiful house, amazing beaches to visit, great surfing right there. Famous Popoyo surf break its a few minutes walk on the beach, and there is a great beach break right by the house. Restaurants in the area, markets, The area its super safe , also is 24hrs guard.
    The house its located 2 minutes walk from the beach. It has 2 bedrooms, and spacious living room kitchen connected. The bathoom with hot water and great shower. There it wifi, fully equipped kitchen for cooking, outside grill and shower, spacious deck to relax, or just under the tree on a hammock. There are two houses in our property, next to each other but private as well. As you can read in the reviews its a beautiful place to stay.
    The houses are located in Guazacate, which its next to Popoyo. The area its usually known as Popoyo as well for its proximity and since its the famous break its right in the limit between Guazacate and Poppoyo. The houses are located 2 minutes walk ( or less:) from the beach and 10 minutes walk to the famous Popoyo surf break. The beach break right by the house its great too when conditions are working , but pretty much every day its good for beginers and to play around for more experienced surfers. There is a great restaurant steps from the houses, called La Perla. Also we are just walking distance from other restaurants, hostels w special nights, market, bakery, amazing pizzas as well. The beach its beautiful, calm, long and great views. I can provide you with all the info to make your trip amazing. We can also arrange you services such as Airport taxi service, surf tours, surf lessons, volcano tours, and many more activities around.

  • We had the best stay in Salitre Surf home. The house is gorgeous, super clean and comfortable. It's in an excellent location, short walks away from places to eat, the local market, and some wonderful surf breaks. The beds were soooo notably comfortable. We will definitely be back and I will recommend the home to everyone. Communication with the host was flawless and she is really sweet.

    Popoyo, Rivas, Nicaragua

    // We offer great discounts for groups and people who are planning to stay for multiple weeks or months. Send us a message! // Vibra Guesthouse is a peaceful oasis, steps from the beach and Popoyo, one of Nicaragua's most famous surf spots. The loft-style rooms with palm leaf roofs are for up to 5 people and have a living room, mezzanine and private bathroom. Guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen and an outside terrace with hammocks. Perfect for friends, couples and small families.
    You will enter your apartment through a private entrance that leads you right into the spacious living room. The 5m/16ft high ceiling adds not only to the calm atmosphere of the place, but also enhances air flow and a pleasant temperature. Every part of the apartment is tastefully furnished with lots of attention to detail. Most items were build by local crafts men and artists and reclaimed wood has been used throughout the structure where possible. The comfortable sofa in the living room is the perfect place to nap after an early morning surf. The desk provides an area for productive hours, if necessary. The sofa and desk area can also be changed to three separate beds, so up to five people can stay in the apartment at a time. The staircase leads up to the second floor into a beautiful open bedroom, with a king size double bed that can also be turned into two separate beds. The private bathroom is attached to the living room on the ground floor. Again, lots of room, toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, moisturizer) and fresh towels will make you feel right at home. Since the idea of Vibra Guesthouse is to create a space where people can find peace and quiet, closely connected to the elements, we do not offer entertainment systems as TV or Netflix. We promise you will not miss them. Next to the best surf spots in Nicaragua, the area has plenty activities to offer. And for the occasional rainy hour, we provide complimentary WIFI. Right next to the apartment is the fully equipped kitchen, that is being shared with the second apartment. A fridge (incl. freezer), a stove and all standard utensils give the opportunity to enjoy a self-catered stay. Free drinking water is also available 24 hours a day. Outside the apartment awaits a shared patio that also functions as the eating area, with a view into the oasis like garden. Here, you can also find a hammock and hammock chair for an unparalleled chill out – the perfect setting to recharge for the next surf session.
    Playa Guasacte/Popoyo is every surfer’s dream come true. Popoyo is a world class wave that works like a machine. No matter the time of the year, no matter the tide - you will most likely catch good or fantastic waves here. That’s why Popoyo is often rated the best wave in Central America. There is a surf spot in walking distance from your door step, no matter if you are a beginner or experienced surfer. From the mellow long board wave at beginners bay to perfect double overhead barrels over shallow water at the outer reef. Also boat trips to other surf spots like Lance’s Left or Playground are available (charges apply). One thing is for sure - you will return from your surf session with a smile on your face. But there are a lot more than waves to be explored around the area. Walk 30 minutes down the beach and enjoy picture perfect tide pools. Take a sun set Yoga class at the Magnific Rock Hotel with the most stunning view. Go horse riding with the locals. Or just sun bathe on the white sand and don’t do anything except maybe read a book and sip on a cold drink.
  • This place is amazing, we absolutely loved our stay here, very close to the beach. The popoyo area is a magical place and this casa is totally worth the price

    Alexandre2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, near the beach, I highly recommend !!!

    Gael2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Vibra has great location as is only a few steps from the beach, restaurants and nightlife. Staff was friendly and helpful, amenities are on point, the shared kitchen and other common spaces make it perfect for a family trip like I did. Vibra is definitively an awesome place to stay in Guasacate.

    Kattia2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Vibra guest house was a terrific choice! Super close to the main Popoyo surf break. One of the best possible locations in Guasacate/Popoyo. The host was very communicative and the room was comfortable, clean and stylish. Highly recommended for other travellers!

    Aidan2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, where to begin. Our stay at Vibra really was outstanding. Our host's went above and beyond to help us with any questions or concerns we had, were always warm and welcoming, and made us feel 100% at home - it was hard to leave! The lofts are very well appointed and cozy, and the $5 breakfast in the morning's was amazing - excellent value on all fronts. I would highly recommend, and can't wait to come back.

    Audrey2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice accommodation. We like it quietly, without great party opportunities, so it was perfect for us. Nearby there are 2-3 restaurants and also 2 minimarkets. Big parties should not be expected, but man can quite comfortably drink a few beers. In the kitchen at the accommodation you can make your own coffee and also the meals if you want. Drinking water was always available. We felt very comfortable and would book again with Frank and Chiara! Thank you Frank for all!

    Gina2018-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • A great place with very nice style. The host is super nice. We are a couple with 3 small kids and we were in this place for 12 days. Had an amazing time.

  • The best house for the price on the little playa Guasacate strip! Rooms were stylish and the top deck had amazing views. Really nice to meet Nico he was so friendly and nice to share a space with!

    Alexis2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Stay more than perfect, certainly the favorite of our trip to Nicaragua! The sea view, the cleanliness of the place, the small kitchen just for us, the places to relax, the sunsets, everything is there! Special mention to our host Nico who by his kindness, his good humor, his judicious advice made our stay memorable! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

    Mireille2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing!!! Everything was perfect and clean, amenities ( room/ kitchen full of appliances) and you cannot beat the location- perfect for surfing and sunset cocktails. The host was so kind and always happy to help. The best air bnb we’ve stayed at.

    Andrew2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and the place in the front was beautiful. Very clean and nico was very helpful and kind

    Gianna2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Simply perfect, the welcome was great. We were greeted by Roland's friend, Nico. The house was located right across from Guasacate Beach. It is really very quiet. If you want to rest this is the perfect place. For surf lovers, there are also some very good places. Also, we had the right to a music show at the bar right next to the house. It is one of the places that it will make you sad to leave during your trip. I recommend this place 100%.

    Norah2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is fantastic! Excactly as it looks like on the photos. Roland was very helpful before check-in and during the entire stay. Easily the best airbnb in Popoyo!

    Christoph2020-01-08T00:00:00Z

    Popoyo, Rivas, Nicaragua

    Quiet and relaxing studio cabin with a large separate private bathroom. we are 15 minutes a way from Popoyo surf break and restaurants. Private kitchen and open terrace with spectacular ocean and mountain views. This is a perfect rental for someone looking to get away from a hostel but stay within walking distance from the beach.
    A private secure home. we are 15 minutes a way from the famous Popoyo surf break, beaches and a variety of restaurants without living in a crowded area full of tourists.
    A rural Nicaraguan experience close to the beaches. Popoyo is known for it's beautiful beaches and world class surf. No other area in Nicaragua has more surf breaks within such a short distance. The consistent surf is year round that caters to many different skill levels.
  • We've stayed at Daniel and Norisel's place many times now. We come for the tranquilidad, away from the crowds, but close enough to the beach. Great comms and a great housekeeper as always. We'll be back.

    Al & Fabiola2020-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is very cute on top of a hill. Very peaceful with a constant breeze. There was everything we needed with a separated bathroom. Communication from host was 10/10. A moto broke down and the host was able to arrange it for it to be fixed in an hour. There was someone to upkeep the property daily. The dogs are nice and friendly and beautiful. About 15 minute walk to the beach. Would stay at again.

    Daniel2020-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot close to the reef, restaurants and more. Super clean and tons of space. Such a great deal for the price, and a very responsive, friendly owner and caretaker. I was happy to have my truck (or a moto), because it’s a bit of a trek to the surf, but I knew that ahead of time. It is walkable too if you’re not as lazy as me :) will be back for sure

    Courtney2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view, lovely dogs, such a great place to relax & surf !!

    Pierre-Nicolas2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • STUNNING My boyfriend and I stood there completely alone , no other roommate, we were able to be butt naked the whole time with 3 doggies , looking and feeling Nicaragua’s love and vibe , with a perfect mountain view was heartless ... also rented a motorcycle which is a must in the area , getting to the house is difficult if you have a lot of luggage , no car , so is a definitely to rent a moto . Don’t expect a luxury tho but is perfect for a honeymoon , amazing solo vea Chi es Tio near the zone ...

    Plantae2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice and calm small place. Host was very flexible and nice with our check in. the place is really not easy to find. Its around 10 minutes walk from the main road. When you think theres nothing coming bo more, keep walking till you see the green fence :)

    Tobias2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to relax and switch off. My wife and I spent a week here with just the 3 dogs for company most of the time. The house is clean, cool and comfortable. I was even able to work giving classes over the wifi connection. The beach is a 15 minute walk away and the bus stop for Rivas is also a 15 minute walk. There is also a nearby shop where you can buy most things. We would absolutely recommend and hope to return asap.

    Guasacate es un barrio costeño poblado por extranjeros de todas partes del mundo. En su mayoría se encuentran muchos americanos, europeos y sudamericanos! También hay familias varias familias Nicaragüenses. Es un playa que se puede recorrer de punta a punta en 30 minutos. Tiene la ola de Popoyo en la punta sur y en la punta norte una ola derecha que está muy buena. Hay varios restorantes, pizzerias y lugares para comer y visitar.
  • Paula house is such a little gem in Guasacate! Sea view and walking distance to the beach. The local neighbors are really sweet and friendly! Paula is always happy to help you if you have questions or if you need something! I definitely recommend this place 100% BUENA ONDA <3

    Yanou2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, awesome balcony with hammock, right by beach, outstanding hosts! I would recommend this place for your stay here!

    Dean2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Paula is an amazing host who was always accommodating. I don’t think you could find a recently built home this close to the beach for this price anywhere.

    Chad2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place and most importantly Paula is the best

    Luis2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Overall: A 5 star experience, Days: 7, PROS: Location (Walking distance to all shops, coffee shops, bars, OCEAN VIEW from the balcony with only a few steps from it). HOST! Paula was always very attentive, friendly, went out of her way to make sure everything was working properly and I was having a great time during my stay (VALUABLE LOCAL KNOWLEDGE). The apartment has 2 A/Cs which is GREAT for the hot days. If you are a surfer traveling alone or with your partner I can confidently say this is your best bet by far, reserve it if its available because you wont regret. Paula and Dani also have a panga to surf some near spots for a reasonable price, they both surf so they are able to give all the insight scoops of all the spots in the area. Good Wifi! CONS: The cellphone signal is very weak due to the location. There is nothing really negative to say about the place and about my experience. I hope to come back soon and share some more memories with my new friends in Guasacate, Nicaragua. MAHALO

    Edgar2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Paula's apartment was amazing, the location is right in front of the beach, clam and cozy place, apartment with AC, super terrace, perfect and quick communication, very helpfull when needed. I definitely recommend the stay!

    Popoyo, Rivas, Nicaragua

    Rustic house located right in front of Guasacate beach. This listing is for a private room with a queen size bed, stay up to two people max. The restroom is shared. Guests have access to the kitchen which counts with a big fridge, 4 burners gas stove, oven, storage space, pots and pans, silverware and crockery. Plenty of space outside to relax. Hammocks, outdoor shower, bonfire area. Wi-fi covering all indoor and outdoor areas.
    The house is in a beach front property. In the front yard there are several coconut palm trees and plants and flowers, ending right on the sand of Guasacate beach. The back yard is a spacious green parking area with all a different kind of trees . The house is rustic and has undergone a complete restructuring that ended February 2018. This result that we expected after the work was given thanks to a complete structural repair of the house and careful design to detail, without ever achieving a distortion of classic and rustic style but rather trying to keep the traditional designs and lines of the place integrated.
  • We had a great time! Nando is very helpful, we felt like home, he gave us a lot of tips and he also was a great surf coach! The location is about 15min walk away from the restaurants but that was not a problem at all. Directly at the beach. Totally recommendable, would stay there again!

    Rahel2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay! The host is very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean. The bed is comfy and soft and there are a bench and sideboards to store your stuff. Kitchen with stove, fridge etc. is well equipped, we cooked several times. We loved the area directly on the beach! Several hammocks are waiting for you to chill. Restaurants and shops are within 15 minutes walking distance. We would come again!

    Manuel2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place on the beach! Ferdinando had great hospitality and it was a nice quiet place to spend the weekend. Definitely will be going back!

    Macon2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fernando created a special place in Popoyo! We immediately felt at home. Los Cocos Beach house is a cozy place at the beach, nice hammocks invite you to relax after a day of surfing and lying in the sun. Fernando is also a surf teacher and I really enjoyed my lesson with him! Cheers, Ann and Benni

    Celine2018-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for a month, and had to extend our stay because this place is awesome. It’s within walking distance to multiple world class surf breaks as well as a beautiful nature scenery like the tide pools just to the south. Nando was an outstanding host and quickly became a friend. As he has been a long time resident, he was extremely knowledgeable about the area. When ever we had a question he was more than happy to answer it. The room itself was equally as exceptional. The house was extremely new and well furnished with a very spacious outside lounging area right in front of the beach. All appliances like refrigerator and stove were included and worked very well as they appeared to be brand new. The WiFi is very fast and covers everywhere on the property. In our lengthy stay we had absolutely no problems and made many friends along the way. I fully anticipate on returning one day soon! Casa Los Cocos truly felt like a home away from home.

  • Perfect location, just a few minutes walk to the most popular surf break. Very relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of space. Everything that you need. Noel's local knowledge about the natural rock pool was amazing and one of the highlights of staying in Popoyo.

    Nica Life is located beachfront in Popoyo, Nicaragua. Wake up on the beach every morning. We are directly in between Playa Popoyo and Playa Santana, which means you are a few steps away from some incredible surf spots! You practice yoga or have a lazy day in a hammock on our upstairs deck over looking the ocean.
    Our lodge is located directly on the beach. We have several surf breaks right in our backyard, also we have a second story hammock lounge which doubles as a yoga deck. Our first level has a shared kitchen with communal eating area, hammocks and bar.
    We are located on a safe and quiet part of the beach. Our neighborhood consists of many expats who have chosen Nicaragua as a place to call home. There are several local businesses and restaurants located in the near vicinity.
  • Amazing beach front house with great features (mixer, rice maker aso.) a cute pig named Olivia and an outstanding host. Engaged and cooperative!

  • Very quiet place !! If you want to relax this is the perfect place

    Gael2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • I spend 4 really good nights here with my girlfriend! The place is just in front of the ocean, with an amazing view from the kitchen, living room and the second floor! The truck with fruit, vegetables, eggs and chicken pass in front of the house 2 time a per day so you have everything you need in front of your door, a very nice coffee is 5 minutes walking from there and the surf spot is 10 minutes walking so the location is very very good, we love the place! And we highly recommend this place!

    Alejandro2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay here. It’s quiet and peaceful, which is exactly what I was looking for. The room is beautiful too. Located right on the beach. Just make sure you bring food. There’s not much around, but Chris has a beautiful fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Highly recommend!

    Emily 2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing!! Great facilities and the location is perfect for surf. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is always drinking water available. Would highly recommend.

    Matthew2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Chris place is amazing, the location is great, close enough to the surf spots and further enough to rest as you deserve! Good taste and good services.. Just go and visit Olivia!

    We are a small beachfront hotel featuring 6 private, oceanfront cabanas. The design for the rooms and the property is inspired by Caribbean style, aiming to embody the charm and simplicity of beach living. SUYO is located on Playa Popoyo, in rural Nicaragua, the heart of surfer's paradise. You can walk to perfect waves or spend the day relaxing on the beach. Guests share kitchen, dining area, bathrooms and a beachfront terrace. If you want to experience beach living in style, come to SUYO!
  • We love Suyo! Simple, elegant, and very comfortable. It’s just as cute in real life as it is in photos, and located on a beautiful stretch of beach. We’re so pleased we found this sweet gem! Thank you, Ashley and Ali, for all of the gracious hospitality!

    Alice2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise in Popoyo! Sleeping in a beautiful cabaña with the sound of the waves. We loved staying here

    Renée2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful! We have spend really great time there. I would highly recommend suyo cabañas :)

    Karolina2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Suyo was amazing! Great hospitality, chilled vibes, views that you just can't beat and to top that, sleeping to the sound of the pacific ocean. The rooms are beautifully simple with decks with hammocks and the common space is well taken care of. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Popoyo or the general area too. Surf lessons are available 10 min on foot away from Suyo. Simply perfect!

    Michael2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so awesome. I had booked for 4 nights at first in cabana #5 but then couldn’t get my mind used to the fact I needed to leave so I booked another night in the cabana #1. The place was simply perfect, even better than the pictures! As a woman traveling alone, I felt super safe here. It’s a very relaxing spot and there’s a bunch of nice spots to go eat around (10mins walk or less). The beach is empty! Not too many tourists so it was a perfect getaway place. Hearing the waves at night or when waking up is very relaxing and I will miss it! Thank you for the stay :) !

    Florence2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here was si nice!

    Céline2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The view of the beach is the photos is even better in person! The ocean is right out the front door, and during the right tide, you can swim right there; no need to walk down the beach to swim. The location on the coastline is perfect, relatively secluded, but just a short walk to at least 3 different restaurants--of which, you can walk to via the beach. It is a perfect place to unwind, hang around in the hammock and relax. The kitchen amenities are thorough and plentiful. If you bring groceries, you would be able to make every meal here. The showers and toilets are in great condition, and are conveniently right next to the cabanas. Host is amazing with information about the area, and is very willing to help with any transportation needs, including rides to the Managua airport. I would definitely recommend this to any travel seeking a peaceful, well-equipped space, right on the beach!

    Rande2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute place like you dream of, but don’t forget to bring groceries with you because it’s a 10 minutes drive to go to a basic grocery otherwise you have the fruit and vegetables truck that pass every day and a couple off restaurants close by, but expensive for the area. But other than that it’s a great place to just relax !!!

    This authentic beach house is ideal for a couple's or small families. The open floor plan layout allows guest to immerse themselves in the beach vibe with its incredible views of the ocean from all areas of the house. Casa Tranquila means relaxing house, you will enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful 2km long sandy beach with access to some of Nicaraguas unique pleasures such as surfing, fishing and kayaking. If you a looking for a relaxing taste of Nicaraguan paradise, look no further.
    One step off the front porch will land you on the soft sand of Playa Guasacate (Guasacate Beach) which is famous for its surfing, fishing, turtles and of course the beautiful sunsets every night without fail. Casa Tranquila allows guests to wake to the sounds of the pacific ocean, the beautiful song of the Zanate (local bird). The property provides indoor outdoor flow with two beautiful balconies at the front with hammocks to enjoy the ocean views and a private back deck and outdoor dinner and BBQ area. The property has been recently landscaped and planted. The purposely designed space highlights the simple rustic beach living typical on the southern Nicaraguan.
    The fantastic location provides access to local hot springs, horse backing riding, fishing, boat trips, kayaking and of course some of the most incredible surf in Central America. Surf boards are available for rent upon request. The beach also hosts a wide range of amazing restaurants offering delicious local and foreign cuisine choices. Additionally to this there are also 2 small grocery store and fruit and vegetable trucks that goes by every day. Another amazing attraction in the area include the Chacocente National Reserve where turtles arrive in great numbers certain times of the year.
  • We had an amazing stay here! Fyfe was incredible to respond anytime we needed anything, and checked in regularly. Emilio, the property manager, lives in the house behind the rental with his adorable family, and he was there checking in on us and helping with anything we needed. He’s also the local fisherman so we were able to scoop some tuna off him for a ridiculous price! The area also felt incredibly safe. The location is perfect. I would highly recommend this rental and will be back!

    Kris2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We were so lucky to have this place to ourselves for 7 DAYS ! How refreshing to have your own little rustic beach house RIGHT on the beach. Return to simplicity, to calm, to recharging, if thats what you want, book this place. We cooked meals (including fresh fish from the morning catch) , we read, we wrote, we enjoyed CRAZY beautiful sunsets. Sometimes during 11am and 2pm, we didnt see a soul on the beach, it was so quiet and peaceful, we could just watch the pelicans dive in the water over and over again. Then around 5pm, people and dogs starts roaming around to enjoy the spectacular views of the sunset. The place is 7 mins walk from a mini market, and there is a fruit and veggie truck that passes in the village everyday. We didnt meet Fyfe in person but he was in touch with us the whole time to make sure our stay was a golden experience. I wish I would of met the person who had all these ideas, next time :) We were lucky to have Emilio watching over us, even though we couldn’t communicate very well, we developed a nice little relationship with him, he was so attentive and always wanted to make us feel safe and taken care of. When your biggest worry of the day is going from a hamac to another, from the swing to the bar to make a Rhum and coke, life cant get any better. Thank you Fyfe for everything.

    Lucie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This beach house was awesome! If you’re looking to chill out on a beautiful beach, with great surf, this is the place for you. Super unique and unforgettable. Makes for breathtaking photos! Witnessed a leatherback turtle lay it’s eggs right beside our deck, super cool!

    Dayna2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Unbeatable oceanfront views and close to amazing surf and good restaurants

    Lindy2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little getaway in paradise. Surf breaks a short walk down the beach, good restaurants nearby, and dozens of dive bombing pelicans right outside fishing in the waves! So cool

    Ryan2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place. Rustic and beachy, perfect location and the ultimate spot for a week getaway! Fyfe arranged a cleaning service and organised a taxi pick up from the airport, which was super fairly priced and professional. Everything was perfect; would love to come back!

    Leilah2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Fyfe’s beach bungalow is perfect for those who want an unbeatable location (literally on the beach, oceanfront) at a decent price, and who are happy just having the bare necessities in the place. The site manager, Emilio, was always available to help with anything we needed. You will need to speak Spanish to communicate with him. The beach, which is actually called Guasacate (not Popoyo - that is the next beach over) is a quiet haven for surfers and those desiring you disconnect from the mundane and reconnect with nature. It a small community vibe - mostly comprised of ex-pats and vacationers. If you’re the kind of person who wants to walk barefoot into the street to catch the fruit delivery truck while drinking a beer, this is your place. A note on getting there : DO NOT take route 62 direct from the north, unless you have a 4x4 with high clearance and a spare tire. It is 35 km of very rough roads. Instead, from Managua take highway #1 to the city called Rivas, then connect with route 62 heading West toward Popoyo. This is the seemingly longer way, so Google Maps probably won’t tell you to do it. But trust us, the longer way has roads that are much smoother.

    Chelsey2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, a beautiful wooden house straight at the beach! The guys running the place are cool and always up for helping, and they work together with a local fisherman in case you like your seafood straight from the boat or want to try your luck at hand lining!

  • Pleasant establishment. Well decorated. Decent room and bathroom. The camp is on the magnificent beach .....

    Ingrid2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful and magic. We were on a budget and stocked up on groceries and visited the fruit truck every other day. There’s not much of a town, but it’s paradise. I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay off the beaten path. A few close hotels have great restaurants if you don’t want to cook. Santiago and Antonio the caretakers are very sweet and accommodating. I loved it and would highly recommended this place.

    Erin2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Nicolas2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really great place, super calm directly on a beautiful beach, 10 minutes beachwalk to the next break. Well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and a house pug. We enjoyed our stay a lot!

    Oliver Martin2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! Didn’t want to leave. Perfect location right on the beach. Great outdoor kitchen with a nice area to hang out in. Really calm and relaxing place! Fyi: If you plan to make your own food, the closest food store is around 10 minutes away with car (and it is small), however a truck selling fruits and vegetables comes round every day just outside the house. Would love to come back!

    Annie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommand this place if you are going to popoyo! The location of the house couldn’t be better you are in front of the beach and near all the best surf spots. Santiago, the guy who keeps the house when Chris and Howard are not there, is incredibly nice, he taught us how to fish like nicaraguayen.

    Grégoire2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It’s an amazing apartment! The upper floor with the hammocks and the view: bombastic! We loved chilling there! The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen we saw in Central America so far - there was even an oven and plenty of spices. Also our room was perfect, we even had an ocean view! The only thing, the host there (Nicaraguan guy) didn’t really seem to be interested in us, but it was fine bc we were the only guests there and really enjoyed that!

    Jana2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Looking for a magical, wild and relaxed beach front place ? This is it ! Howard is a super host, nice and helpful, he knows Popoyo and will be able to tell you anything you want to know. You will find here a good terrasse to chill, hamacs, good kitchen, sport or yoga place upstairs with amazing sea view. ++: wifi is working perfectly Highly recommended !

    Casa La Aventura is a new, rustic and ecofriendly guesthouse located in Popoyo, close to one of Nicaragua's most famous surf spots. You can find this property in the middle of Guasacate road, a two minutes walk to the beach. Made out of wood and bamboo, all the design is inspired by our travels and personal taste. Casa La Aventura provides a peaceful place full of plants, craftsmanship and chill out areas where you can relax and feel easily connected to Nature. There is a guard 24h a day.
    The Eucalyptus Cabin is a place we designed and build with local wood and craftsmanship. It includes a double bed and a single bed, a fan and some furnitures for your convenience. You have access to an outside shower and restroom made out of local handmade bricks and bamboo . You also have a private chill out area with hammocks on the side of the room. All the guests have access to an equipped and shared kitchen with an outside area to sit and enjoy the shade of the tamarindo tree. A couple of caretakers from Nicaragua lives on-site, they are very nice and gentle people who will take care of you and the place. We hope you will enjoy the area and all Nicaragua has to offer as much as we do.
    No matter which season you come, either you are a beginner or experienced surfer, you will always find a good wave for you. The Popoyo's break is a 10 minutes walk from La Aventura. You also have a few beach breaks right in front and many more surf spots to explore in the area. You can also just walk on the beach and enjoy natural tide pools and amazing sunsets. A few km north of Guasacate there is a unique beach called Chacocente where you can observe thousands of turtles laying their eggs in clutches. Next to the property, you can find a very good local restaurant called La Perla. Everyday, street vendors stop by selling fruits and veggies and some local dishes and natural juices. Within walking distance, you have a few restaurants, a cafe, a couple of grocery stores, surf rental shops and surf lessons, a motorcycle rental shop, yoga classes, horseback riding and more.

    Sirena Surf House has been designed to welcome it's guests in a cozy atmosphere. Cuarto Sarita is a beach front room with a private entrance, 2 comfortable twin beds that convert into a king size bed. The room has a private bathroom with walk-in shower and a private little patio. The style could be described as "Colonial meets the beach". The wooden sliding doors open up to beautiful ocean views of Playa Popoyo. Your bed is just steps away from the Pacific. Come enjoy Sirena Surf House with me.
    Sirena Surf House as mentioned above is right on the ocean. The idea is to create a beautiful and comfortable environment where guest can really relax and feel at home.
    Sirena Surf House is located on the beautiful remote Playa Popoyo. Although tourism is picking up in the area, it is till pretty untouched. There are several cafes and restaurants only a short 5 minute walk from the house such as: Cafe con Leche, Magnific Rock and Buena Onda.
  • Our stay was very lovely. Unfortunately we only stayed for a night, but the breakfast was very good and the team very friendly. Adriana even gave us a ride to the bus station in the morning. The accommodation is clean and everything was good.

    Laura2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing time!! Isabelle is super nice, welcoming and helpful. The house is located really by the sea - at 20 meters from the ocean. Very clean, super calm and chill. I would definitely recommend for anyone who want to rest, surf and have time to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Lots of options around to eat and to do other activities which I haven't tried though. Isabelle gave surf lessons, helped with my taxi at arrival and departure and was super friendly throughout the trip - definitely gave much more than what I have experienced from Airbnb hosts in the past. I really had a great stay.

    Nicolas2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and amazing host! Truly paradisiac, would totally recommend it. Bella was easy to communicate with long before we got there, helped us with taxis to get around Nicaragua, gave us a bunch of local tips and even took us with her to a music festival where her great band was also playing. Also the staff that works in Sirena Surf House (specially Petrona) are the kindest!

    Clara2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Simply remarkable! From booking to departure, Isabelle has been the most amazing host. Isabelle and her team are full of lovely attention, heaven exists, it’s in Popoyo, at Sardina Surf House. Its unique location allows you to live on the beach with a unique sens of home. The lovely decoration and details makes you live in a cocoon. The breakfast is amazing, Cubano is the best dog ever, neighbors are delightful, location is amazing, beach is breathtaking, sunset front row every night and Isabelle’s recommendation are unbeatable! Only one thing to say: THANK YOU, I’ll be back!

    Edouard2019-08-26T00:00:00Z

    Gema2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a pure gem! The space is really well designed for relaxation and the simple beach life. Beautiful view and location watching sunset at Magnificent Rock from the hammock was stunning. Short walk to the best surf spots in Santana and Popoyo. The food was excellent! Isabelle is a great host! She was flexible to our schedule for meals and surfing trips. She organized a great boat trip to Lance’s left and Playgrounds. She has great suggestions for everything in the area. And very importantly she helped us get to the peace and tranquility of the beach during this time of unrest in Nicaragua. We followed her informed suggestions and everything was smooth and peaceful. We felt totally at home and relaxed. I highly recommend staying at Sirena Surf House! We have stayed at 3 other places in the area and this is the best!

    Amanda2018-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Isabel's place is amazing!! It is located direclty on the beach, you can even hear the waves from your room! Not to mention the seaview :) Our room was really spacious and nicely decorated. The rooms also dispose of a little fridge which is a big big plus to store some fruits or drinks!! The outside area is very nice with hammocks to relax in and a place to take the breakfast. Breakfast was very tasty by the way, it is included and you hace a couple of options to choose from!! We came to nicaragua to surf so the location was perfect for us. It s a short walking distance to popoyo break or playa santana. There are plenty of other spots around which you can access by car or boat. Isabel was a perfect host, always there to help. She gave us a lot of good recommendations and useful tips. She also organised a super interesting tour for us. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you so much!!

    Robin2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Isabelle's, perfect location right on the beach, being able to sleep every night with the sound of the waves was so beautiful. Isabelle is super friendly and helpful, with tips and arranging surf lessons (she is also a great teacher), Petrona was also super friendly and made amazing breakfasts. Can't wait to come and stay again!

    Popoyo, Departamento de Rivas, Nicaragua

    // We offer great discounts for groups and people who are planning to stay for multiple weeks or months. Send us a message! // Vibra Guesthouse is a peaceful oasis, steps from the beach and Popoyo, one of Nicaragua's most famous surf spots. The loft-style rooms with palm leaf roofs are for up to 5 people and have a living room, mezzanine and private bathroom. Guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen and an outside terrace with hammocks. Perfect for friends, couples and small families.
    You will enter your apartment through a private entrance that leads you right into the spacious living room. The 5m/16ft high ceiling adds not only to the calm atmosphere of the place, but also enhances air flow and a pleasant temperature. Every part of the apartment is tastefully furnished with lots of attention to detail. Most items were build by local crafts men and artists and reclaimed wood has been used throughout the structure where possible. The comfortable sofa in the living room is the perfect place to nap after an early morning surf. The desk provides an area for productive hours, if necessary. The sofa and desk area can also be changed to three separate beds, so up to five people can stay in the apartment at a time. The staircase leads up to the second floor into a beautiful open bedroom, with a king size double bed that can also be turned into two separate beds. The private bathroom is attached to the living room on the ground floor. Again, lots of room, toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, moisturizer) and fresh towels will make you feel right at home. Since the idea of Vibra Guesthouse is to create a space where people can find peace and quiet, closely connected to the elements, we do not offer entertainment systems as TV or Netflix. We promise you will not miss them. Next to the best surf spots in Nicaragua, the area has plenty activities to offer. And for the occasional rainy hour, we provide complimentary WIFI. Right next to the apartment is the fully equipped kitchen, that is being shared with the second apartment. A fridge (incl. freezer), a stove and all standard utensils give the opportunity to enjoy a self-catered stay. Free drinking water is also available 24 hours a day. Outside the apartment awaits a shared patio that also functions as the eating area, with a view into the oasis like garden. Here, you can also find a hammock and hammock chair for an unparalleled chill out – the perfect setting to recharge for the next surf session.
    Playa Guasacate/Popoyo is every surfer’s dream come true. Popoyo is a world class wave that works like a machine. No matter the time of the year, no matter the tide - you will most likely catch good or fantastic waves here. That’s why Popoyo is often rated the best wave in Central America. There is a surf spot in walking distance from your door step, no matter if you are a beginner or experienced surfer. From the mellow long board wave at beginners bay to perfect double overhead barrels over shallow water at the outer reef. Also boat trips to other surf spots like Lance’s Left or Playground are available (charges apply). One thing is for sure - you will return from your surf session with a smile on your face. But there are a lot more than waves to be explored around the area. Walk 30 minutes down the beach and enjoy picture perfect tide pools. Take a sun set Yoga class at the Magnific Rock Hotel with the most stunning view. Go horse riding with the locals. Or just sun bathe on the white sand and don’t do anything except maybe read a book and sip on a cold drink.
  • Super great space, loved my time here. The loft is beautifully furnished and very lofty :) A few steps away from the beach. The hosts were suuuper nice and took great care of me. Wi-Fi was good (I work remotely so this was important). The kitchen could use a little upgrade in utensils. Other than that everything was perfect!

    Julia2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Vibra house is a great place to stay if you are looking for a private getaway. Chiara is a welcoming host with awesome suggestions for where to eat in Popoyo. She also helped with booking a day trip to nearby destinations that was a highlight of our trip. Her breakfast is fantastic too!

  • A wonderful spot with lovely and very accommodating hosts! Very near all the best restaurants in town and the perfect location for long beach walks to mag rock and the tide pools. The space itself is beautiful and beds were comfortable- could have easily stayed for a week or more!!

    Chelsea2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Fabián and his wife were great, they gave us a few tips and spots to visit, the room was clean and spacious, we loved the breakfast and also how close is to the beach.

    Nikki2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • We rolled into Popoyo late and were greeted by the loveliest volunteers (Fabian & Jana) at Vibra Guesthouse. Our room was beautiful with wonderful artistic touches made from repurposed materials. The space, especially the loft, was a perfect place to escape the mid day heat and kick back with a book. Great amenities with a shared kitchen and patio area where we found ourselves among fine company each evening. While not a beachfront property, we really appreciated the quiet being just steps away from the beach this guesthouse offered. Fabian whipped up the most savory eggs coupled with his home baked bread for breakfast before our departure. This is the place to be when visiting Popoyo. While we didn’t have the chance to meet Chiara in person, she and her volunteers made our stay at Vibra seamless and very welcoming.

    Brian2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Vibra guesthouse was amazing! Jana & Fabian were terrific hosts and made us feel very at home. The apartment was gorgeous, so spacious and perfect for our 5 days at Popoyo beach. Sleeping with the sounds of the waves was heaven. Did not want to leave! Thank you so much for having us x

    Laura2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • The best place to be in Guasacate! Restaurants around with very good food, the very quiet place to rest and spend time in total peace and Jana is definitely the best host! Very friendly and always aware of their guests. I would definitely go back to be much longer :)

    Karelia2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful stay in Popoyo! Amazing room with such attention to detail! Fabi and Jana do a fantastic job! Super breakfast, smoothies, talks and service! Thank you for everything :)

The entire place is definitely sparkling clean.
    Within walking distance, there are several restaurants, a cafe, two mini markets, a surf shop, ding repair, local surfboard shaper, surf rentals, motorcycle rentals, surf lessons, yoga lessons, and horseback riding.
  • Truly a paradise. Imagine waking to coffee in a hammock just steps from the ocean and the sound of the waves drifting you to sleep after relaxing days and picturesque sunsets. Roland was an amazing host, and his place couldn’t have been more comfortable and clean. Great location next to restaurants and great surf. Book it!!!

    Lindy2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Casa Del Mar. The views were amazing and it is just as it is pictured - right on the beach. Roland was a great host and very accommodating. He was available to answer any question, but gave us our space and privacy. He even offered to watch for us when we went out to swim, as I'm not a strong swimmer, and the waves were very choppy. The entire place was definitely sparkling clean. It was very windy and the sand was a challenge, but Roland went out of his way to make sure everything was as clean as possible. The rooms have their own entrances, which is nice. The view from the balcony is spectacular. We were lucky enough to have the room next door empty, so we had it to ourselves: a calm and quiet panoramic view. If someone is next door, there probably isn't an overabundance of privacy on the balcony, but there is a shade that can be drawn between the two spaces. I recommend bringing your own groceries if you want any snacks. There was one small market, but their stock was somewhat limited. We didn't find a grocery store nearby. It was great to have the kitchen. We made breakfast there each morning and enjoyed it on the balcony. Parking is on the street, so we were a bit nervous, but it was nothing to worry about. There are restaurants nearby - we recommend the local place at the end of the street, a great view of the tide pool and good food at a fair price. The restaurant 2 doors down was delicious, but a bit high for Nicaragua. Plenty of other tourists hanging out there if you wanted to make friends. We aren't surfers, so we didn't find a lot of activities around, but it was nice to relax and listen to the waves. I think if you are a surfer, you will love this place. There were many surfers up the beach a bit who seemed to be enjoying themselves, and many surfers at the restaurant next door who were having a good time. It's great for just relaxing as well. Highly recommended! Easy 5 stars.

    Christy2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Simply put, this is the best located, most efficiently designed, perfectly managed AIRBNB on Nicaragua's Pacific Coast...a brand new home with functional modern amenities but a designer's eye that makes the whole space attractive. And managed by cool people that we found surprisingly unpretentious, legitimately friendly (yet not intrusive), relaxed but clean and orderly, and always with a true smile on their faces! The view from the deck of your room is incomparable for yoga in the a.m. and drinks in the p.m. All this just a short 30 second jaunt and you are in the water with your kids, or 10 minutes to the south, surfing with cool dudes and dude-citas. Hard to beat Guacaste and Roland's place. We will be back again!

    Steve2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Roland's place is very cozy, clean, very tasteful, I love that it has incorporated rustic local materials, both for construction and for decorating the space. It only has 2 rooms for rent and has no bar or restaurant, that makes it a very quiet and more private space. It is right in front of the beach, on the most beautiful beach in the Pacific of Nicaragua, your room and your balcony have a direct view of the sea, what more could you ask for? If you want more party, noise, drinks and prepared meals, you have options next to, behind or very close to the lodging. Definitely recommended.

    Aymara2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Definitely recommended to future travelers. Great spot with an amazing view.

    Popoyo, Rivas, Nicaragua

    This cool and quiet hilltop casa is a five minute drive from world class surf, and offers sprawling views of the surrounding valley and ocean from the front porch or from the elevated mirador. The Perch is in sight of Popoyo, but situated up and away from any hustle and bustle. This 2 bedroom home has optional air conditioning, access to laundry and complimentary good wifi. Get comfortable, enjoy the breathtaking views from the mirador, and enjoy. Mi casa es su casa.
    A private hillside casa overlooking the Ocean and surrounding mountains. Enjoy fruit trees, a breathtaking myrador (stilted observation deck) and a large property, all just a few minutes drive/moto from great restaurants and surfing. The house is two floors, with two bedrooms and a large bathroom up, a balcony off the rooms, and the kitchen, living room and second bathroom down. There is a Groundskeeper on sight evenings/mornings to keep the property clean and secure. Michael, the property manager, can help you arrange anything you may need during your stay and lives at the end of the street.
    The Perch is next door to Soma Surf Resort. Here you can rent surfboards, swim in the pool, drink cocktails or just hang out. 5 minutes driving brings you to Popoyo, and one of the best surf breaks in Nicaragua. As well as being a cool beach community where you can get anything from cocktails to authentic Italian pizza and local swag, Popoyo touts a breathtaking beach, Instagram worthy tide pools, and access to numerous activities (horseback riding, deep sea fishing etc.) There are natural hot springs in the area, and you shouldn’t skip going to Magnific Rock for yoga or the amazing view from the restaurant and bar. If you are interested in yoga and don't want to travel far, Yoga In Nicaragua palm roof elevated studio is a quick 5 minute walk away. Just ask us and we will be happy to share their schedule and hours.
  • What an incredible place! Very happy to say that we are gonna stay longer. The house is really big and private. Our host Marco is really nice and he always helps out when you need him. The house has a good location. Near the plaza where you can buy fresh food and also near Popoyo beach. I recommend a moto, car of bicycle when you stay in this house. The walk up to the beach is a bit far to walk.

    Lindy2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • this was perfect, thanks!

    Jacalyn2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Michael and his wife were so hospitable and always available! We absolutely fell in love with this town. All of their recommendations were spot on and amazing. The people here are just great! We definitely plan on staying again! And the security man Elvin is the best! Can’t wait to come back :)

    Gilly2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • A private, comfortable location, close to many beaches, with a good view. Very kind. Very safe, very nice details. I would like to go back and stay more days

    Milo2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome view!

    Étienne2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with amazing views. House has everything you need for a longer stay, fully equipped kitchen, two rooms and comfortable beds. We stayed for 12 nights and could've stayed longer. Popoyo is a great area to be, friendly people, good surf and beautiful beach. Patrick and Jose the housekeeper were very friendly to us and always willing to help. For this house you need some vehicle to move around since it's a bit far from any shops or restaurants. Patrick can help you with some motorbike rentals.

    Emmi2017-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Bradley is a really good guy and was so flexible with us. We had a great experience in this house, in fact the photos do not do it justice, and met some amazing people in Popoyo, which is great place to say. Its very private and has everything you could ask for in a house, big garden and is very comfortable. This is a criticism of the house itself but I would urge people to get transportation unless you don't mind a 45 min walk to the beach. We had a great time with this but some people may not, but its easy even just to get a pushbike. With that, you can relish in the secluded nature of the house without being too far from amenities. We had amazing Spanish lessons just down the road and the whole area is bright and green.

    Will2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in 'tranquillo' Popoyo/Guasacate. The Perch is located in a really quiet and peaceful area surrounded by trees. If you are lucky the Mango tree on the property will have fruits ready to be picked! The Casa provides everything for a comfortable stay. To get a glimpse of the ocean, climbe the stairs to the highest point of the property. From there you have a pretty nice view and you also get to see beautiful sunsets. Since the property is secluded, we recommend to have a car or motorbike in order to get to places (also for going to the beach and doing grocerious in the closest villlage Las Salinas). The property manager Patrick was always available and really helpful. You will be happy to stay there.

We are nestled on a small hill, surrounded by many different plants and trees, views of the ocean, sounds of many bird varieties and howler monkeys. We offer private home rentals for a tranquil vacation close to many world class surf break - 3km to the first beach access point - Playa Guasacate.

    Las Salinas, Tola Nicaragua is 2.5 hours from the capital city Managua. Surrounded by small towns, a local fishing community and miles of sprawling beach known as Playa Guasacate. Nicaragua has become better known as a safe and exciting tourist destination, untouched and unparalleled in Central America. Famous for it’s flora and fauna as well as rugged and diverse landscape from volcanoes to lakes, rivers to oceans, wildlife, culture and historic colonial cities. Today, Nicaragua attracts tourists from all over the world that seek to find undeveloped natural surroundings. Playa Guasacate is home to the world famous Popoyo Surf break, tidal pools and one of Nicaragua’s most pristine beaches.
  • If you‘re looking for a private casita in Popoyo, look no further - this is your best bet! We absolutely love the place Mike & Zivile created. It‘s a little outside of Popoyo, around 5-10 minutes by motorbike, up in the hills, overlooking the area and the sea. The casitas are placed in an amazing garden with so many different plants around, you are able to spot many different birds (even hummingbirds!) and hear the monkeys during the night. Both casitas have super nice interior and many thoughtful touches. I loved having a proper kitchen, with great cooking equipment and even a blender - it really feels like home. Maria, the lovely cleaning lady comes once a week and leaves your house spotless clean, if you‘re feet are too sandy from a day spent surfing or at the beach, you can always grab your own broom :) We really enjoy using the yoga deck for our own practice or one of Zee‘s awesome, restorative, Iyengar inspired classes or just wandering around the property, maybe picking a ripe Papaya from one of the many trees. Zivile and Mike are great hosts. The took care of everything right from the beginning, providing us with useful advice about rentals and anything else we might need. Our contact with Zee was amazing, she always answered right away, even when they were on holiday and in a completely different time zone. Mike gives great surf advice, if it‘s tides, spots, boats or even surfers shoulder relief techniques. I could go on and on about how much we love the place and extended our stay to three (!) months. But really, you should just book it and check yourself. Thanks for everything, we will come back again and again! Oh and I already miss the dogs :)

    Sara2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Michael and Z are absolutely great! We didn’t want to leave. I highly recommend their place. It is beautiful, the doggies are super friendly and well behaved, the house has so many little amenities and you can tell they really thought of everything. Our stay was a great pleasure and we will definitely be back!

    Kara2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • An inspiring and magical place. At first I thought the comments were too much. Since I was there, I can only give thanks for the hospitality and the wonderful place

    Andrés Cristobal2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say enough about what a fantastic stay we had at Zivile’s place. The hosts were incredibly warm, friendly, and helpful. The 2 story casitas are very stylishly appointed and well laid out with a full kitchen, dining area, spacious sleeping loft and a private patio for outdoor seating. The property itself is located on a hill overlooking the ocean and beautiful landscape above Popoyo. Being on the hill provided a constant refreshing breeze which was great during the hot part of the day and made relaxing in the hammock in the shade of the rancho a great way to lounge away part of the day. It was just a short drive into playa guasacate to go surf Popoyo or eat at one of the restaurants along the beach. The location was perfect for us because everything was accessible when we wanted it but the rest of the time we could enjoy the beautiful natural environment and peace and quiet around the property. Definitely plan to come back!

    David2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ziviles place was great! Not too far from the beaches, were you can find great food & Bars. Close to the town where you can buy fresh seafood to cook at Zees with all the necessary utensils. We’ll be back to Nicaragua with this place in mind.

    Fred2019-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable cabins, for someone who needs to relax away from everything. Excellent attention from the owners. They speak Spanish well.

    Allan2018-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Zivile and Mikes place was by far the best space we’ve every had on Airbnb! I instantly felt at home there. They were so warm, welcoming and full of endlessly fabulous information about the area. The home itself was awesome! Brand new and beautifully designed and decorated. They thought of everything, even a blender to make smoothies with. They have a fruit truck that comes right to the house and fresh veggies can be delivered to your door. Their dogs were awesome. The air conditioner worked perfectly. I could go on and on... The house was close to the beach and all the best surf breaks. I would love more then anything to come back and spend more time there one day.

    Catnb2018-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation is an absolute dream to relxen. You live in your own house that is wonderfully furnished. The dogs are extremely adorable and cute. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. They have always given us good tips. We would go to them again. 100% recommended!

    Red Pepper Guesthouse is only 50 meters away from the beach, close to restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities and GREAT SURF. You’ll fall in love with the comfort all within your hands reach. 5 minute beach walk to the famous Popoyo Surf Break, private roof top terrace, shared outdoor kitchen, private bath, free WiFi and more. Everyone is welcome from couples to solo adventurers to business travelers.
    Red Pepper is a small guesthouse owned by a Dutch couple Mariken & Marc. It is located just 50 meters from Guasacate beach and offers 4 private, cozy rooms, that can each accommodate 2 people. Every room has one Queen size bed, a private bath, private roof top terrace equipped with hammocks and rocking chairs. Terrace is perfect for a morning coffee, afternoon siesta or sunset viewing. All guests have access to a shared guest outdoor kitchen as well as a communal garden. We offer complimentary filtered water, towels, toiletries and WiFi.
    We are located on an untouched 2 km strip of beach just outside of Las Salinas village. Our beach is called Guasacate and is in the Tola districts of Rivas. A true surfers paradise with famous Popoyo just 5 minute walk away, Magnific Rock, Santana, Astillero, Collorado and more a quick drive away. Plenty of restaurants are just outside Red Pepper, from local fare to some more exotic flavors. It is a quiet and sleepy strip of the beach where you can enjoy some of the best waves of the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua.
  • The Red Pepper guest house is located on the main road in Guasacate. The rooms are cleverly decorated with taste and beach style. The biggest advantage of the room is the roof terrace with hammocks and rocking chairs. The view from the terrace of the sea is beautiful. The hosts are very nice, hospitable and accommodating people. The only drawback is the low water pressure in the shower. This is where you can really relax. I recommend with all my heart.

    Bogusław2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Red Pepper guesthouse has very nice houses with a private roof terrace. From the roof terrace you have a wonderful view of the sea and you can sit comfortably in a rocking chair or hang out in a hammock. It was quite hot in the room but luckily there was a ceiling fan and vents in the walls. There is a communal kitchen where you have your own shelf in the fridge and a cupboard. Super nice! If you like surfing, you really want a top spot because you are right on the beach. Furthermore, there is not much to do. Nice place to relax!

    Roos2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were very nice and welcoming. The room was impeccable! And the location is great. Hopefully we'll come back soon!

    Katherine2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and helpful host. The place is perfect for surfing and the you can enjoy your own private rooftop. The kitchen is available at any time, there is a guardian at night, the room is very designed and nice for two people. We used only local buses and the evrything is safe, we arrive on time at every destinations and popoyo is amazing for chill and surf! Thanks Mark&Mariken for the nice stay!

    Jean-Baptiste2018-07-13T00:00:00Z

  • Wow! The Red Pepper Guesthouse is a fantastic place with fantastic hosts! Every detail is well thought out - the room is very clean and comfortable, the communal kitchen is super clean and well maintained, and the roof top terrace will make you never want to leave! We would absolutely stay again!

    Anisa2018-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you enjoy a well maintained, clean, brilliantly designed facility affording the easiest access to some of the best surf in Nicaragua, this is it. We enjoyed hearing the waves as we went to sleep, our own private palapa on the roof of our unit - equipped with hammocks and chairs. Also, local beer and coffee is available on site. The hosts are knowledgeable of local issues and surf conditions, and provide discrete and genuine hospitality. Probably the best value on Popoyo - although we’ve not tried everything (yet)!

    Las Salinas, Departamento de Rivas, Nicaragua

    Simple and secluded, our home sits within a 10 minute walk to Popoyo. Our home has a very private feel while still maintaining a close proximity to the beach, towns of Las Salinas and Limon Dos, and many local amenities.
    Our home consists of one large bedroom upstairs with a full bathroom attached. Downstairs has a large open air living space with a full kitchen, outdoor shower and a sand floor hammock hangout. The kitchen consists of a full size fridge, gas oven and cook range, pots, pans, dishes, utensils, coffee filter, and most other kitchen items. We suggest bringing all food/ cooking items you will need to cook during your stay as we can’t assure all basics (salt, pepper, oil, etc. ) will be available due to prior guest usage. .
    The central location of the house allows guests to have close proximity to some of the most popular attractions and restaurants in the area. Grocery stores and veggie stands are easy to come by in La Salinas, La Virgin Morena, and Limon 1 and 2. Theses stores are often limited in what they offer besides the basics. If you want a larger grocery store, Rivas has a maxipali store.
  • We stayed at Danas place for a month and it was a beautiful experience. Dana was a great host and provided us a taxi to get from Managua, a great place to rent a motorcycle and was always quick to respond. Eddy, the caretaker was wonderful also. The house itself is Huge and close to some good surf spots and bars and places to eat. I would reccomend having some sort of transport to make yourr stay enjoyable, but its possible without. Popoyo is still a hidden gem and mostly had huge beautiful beaches to ourselves. Great stay!

    Rebecca2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it. Been there for a month and its an awsm place. 👌Come back again soon.

    Marco2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful I really enjoyed the house, lot of space and the beach is close and very nice with beautiful waves, it's all great! Thank you

    Julien2019-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Casa Madera! Dana was very responsive from afar and Eddy, the caretaker, was kind, helpful, and accommodating. He even took me to the market to get groceries and arranged a deep sea fishing adventure in a nearby town for us. We were sad to leave but hope to return sometime in the not-so-distant future.

    Erin2019-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great house walking distance to Magnific Rock for surfing, beach chillin, and great sunsets! The property manager, Eddy, is a great guy who made sure we had anything we needed. I love the dual outdoor showers!! Rocking chairs on the bedroom patio with a relaxing view and shade for morning coffee, and hammock section was shaded in the afternoon. Highly recommend Dana’s home!

    Mark2018-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing, I never want to leave. Eddy is the sweetest and the home is just dreamy. A Nicaraguan dream.

    Natalie2018-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Madero Surf Bungalow. The location was very private, yet convientiently located. Though we never met Dana, he was very responsive to our messages, and his housekeeper Eddy, who was at the property for a little while every day, was very helpful and friendly. Eddy brought us fresh eggs from the chicken coop in the yard which we enjoyed for for breakfast every day. A great value!

    Kaitlyn2018-03-26T00:00:00Z

    Popoyo, Rivas, Nicaragua

    Casa La Aventura is a new, rustic and ecofriendly guesthouse located in Popoyo, close to one of Nicaragua's most famous surf spots. You can find this property in the middle of Guasacate road, a two minutes walk to the beach. Made out of wood and bamboo, all the design is inspired by our travels and personal taste. Casa La Aventura provides a peaceful place full of plants, craftsmanship and chill out areas where you can relax and feel easily connected to Nature. There is a guard 24h a day.
    The Bamboo House is a concept and design we brought from Indonesia. A structure built with local bamboo and a roof made of palm leaves. The house provides a double bed and a fan, a private shower and restroom. You have a private chill out area outside with hammocks where you can relax and have dinner. You also have access to an outside shower and restroom made out of local handmade bricks and bamboo . All the guests have access to an equipped and shared kitchen with an outside area to sit and enjoy the shade of the tamarindo tree. A couple of caretakers from Nicaragua lives on-site, they are very nice and gentle people who will take care of you and the place. We hope you will enjoy the area and all Nicaragua has to offer as much as we do.
    No matter which season you come, either you are a beginner or a experienced surfer, you will always find a good wave for you. The Popoyo's break is a 10 minutes walk from La Aventura. You also have a few beach breaks right in front and many more surf spots to explore in the area. You can also just walk on the beach and enjoy natural tide pools and amazing sunsets. A few km north of Guasacate there is a unique beach called Chacocente where you can observe thousands of turtles laying their eggs in clutches. Next to the property, you can find a very good local restaurant called La Perla. Everyday, street vendors stop by selling fruits and veggies and some local dishes and natural juices. Within walking distance, you have a few restaurants, a cafe, a couple of grocery stores, surf rental shops and surf lessons, a motorcycle rental shop, yoga classes, horseback riding and more.
  • A beautiful and great place, lots of hospitality, super recommended.

  • Casa Bamboo is a wonderful cabin at Casa la Aventura. We were the only guests staying on the property, so we enjoyed a tranquil vibe for a couple of days. The cabin itself was beautifully made and with a perfect size for two people. We really enjoyed sitting on the little porch, drinking coffee, playing guitar and watching the world go by very, very slowly. The location was also good for us — close to the beach, to a small convenience store and restaurants. The veggie car is also driving by each morning if you need to buy any fruits or greens for cooking. We'd definitely stay here again if we ever find ourselves back in Popoyo.

    Karina2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had some very nice and relaxing days in Guasacate! The caretakers are fantastic people and they make you feel like home! The bamboo house was very comfortable and we enjoyed it very much! Thanks for sharing this place with us!

  • Great place to stay in Popoyo. Was barely a two minute walk to the beach where there were some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. Short walk to the closest store where you can find basic necessities. The house itself was fantastic with wonderful large windows that let it the nicest gusts of wind. Perfect place to come back to and relax with friends after a day of surfing!

    Melanie Jessica2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Margarita’s place! The family across the street manages the property, and they went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. Bryan is so friendly and helpful, and was always there for whatever we needed. Not to mention the food at La Perla (their restaurant directly across the street) is incredible! Our favorite restaurant for classic Nicaraguan food in Popoyo. The house itself is very spacious and comfortable with a beautiful shaded porch. We stayed for 2 weeks and made a little home away from home here, and it felt very comfortable and private while still pretty close to many things. The bedrooms are air conditioned and have glass windows, and the common area is “open air” with screen windows so be aware that dust and dirt blows around and covers the floor, especially during the windy season (Jan/Feb). It was not a problem for us and we swept every other day if needed. It is about a 10-15 minute walk down the road to the “busier” part of the Popoyo where you’ll find a handful of hostels, bars and restaurants. 2-3 min walk to the beach, and about 20 min walk to the surf spots. Ideal location if you’re looking for privacy and comfort in Popoyo!

    Brennan2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Love the style of the place with great feng shui. hot water, nice beds, ac, etc. Will stay there again.

    Ramsey2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Private and comfortable stay in Guasacate Beach. Best if you have your own surfboard since it’s a bit of a walk to the rental places. Its also good if you have either a rental car or moto because nothing is really close. Ideal to cook your own meals or eat at la Perla right in front, the food is amazing. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They speak mostly spanish.

    Joanie2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent! It is all that promises! I would always return!

    Ivan2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

    El cuarto numero 2 de la casa 2 está en el altura y rodeado de arboles. Podrás ver ardillas y pájaros mientras desayunas.
    Hemos utilizando contenedores marítimos y madera para construir nuestro surfcamp. El recinto está rodeado de arboles y con fácil acceso a pie de la carretera principal. Saliendo del recinto, llegaras a las playa en 1 minuto caminando. La zona de tiendas queda a 10 minutos caminando.
    La zona es tranquila, perfecta para el descanso.
  • Me and my partner really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is modern and stylish would definitely recommend to anyone. Right on the beach a short walk from shops and restaurants. Breakfast provided daily which was a nice touch. Super relaxing slow place.

    Beautiful brand new mission style 1 bedroom 1 bathroom house with spacious full kitchen perfect for anyone looking to cook and save money while on vacation. The house is a private residence a 15 minute walk to Central America's infamous Popoyo Beach.
    Full kitchen, wall to wall tiled floors, and naturally well lit.
    The house is close to local bars and restaurants.
  • If you want to have some rest and chill this is the right place. We loved it. Home is little bit isolated but you still have one bigger shop about 10 mins walking distance. Beach and few restaurats are about 15 mins walking. We didn't even rent a motor bike. There are three lovely big dogs around the house, sleeping on your terrace all night, so felt super safe. Also have fully equipped kitchen and huge fridge so we were cooking every day. Wifi was fast and house wasn't too hot inside. We were fine with just fan. Lot of mosquitos around and inside the house so it would be nice have some mosquito net around the bed. But if you bring repellent you will be fine. Really difficult for us was find this place. On the map on airbnb is wrong location. Just fallow the instructions. House is on the end of the road behind Nicawaves surf camp. We added it on google maps like "Breezy hilltop". Hope it will help.

    Michaela2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful Casa in a dream location! A bit far from everything but accessible to walking (10 min to the beach, 20 min to a small grocery store). The casa is clean, very well equipped and perfect for our big family! We loved our week in Popoyo! The Brunelle family

    Valérie2018-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great. Best part for me was how close it was to Magnific Rock. Couldn't have been any closer. 5 min walk to the beach, that you have all to yourself most days. Home is exactly like pictures. Daniel was great in accommodating my change in travel schedule. Was really great stay.

    Jamie2016-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I, along with another couple, made the reservation 8pm of the same night that we checked-in. Dan was very accommodating to make sure we got the key and that he explained anything that we needed to know regarding the house. La Casa Blanca is exactly as seen in photos, simple layout with more than enough space for two couples or a family. The real benefit of the property is it's proximity to various beaches. We were looking for a place to crash where we could wake up early and head out to the beaches first thing in the morning, the home/location was perfect for that. Easy option and a great location for those looking to be close to the beach!

    Leslie W.2015-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Dan was a wonderful host. Anything we needed, he was just a phone call away. The house was located just a few minutes from the beach! Great access to amazing surf spots in Popoyo. Booking, check in, communication, and check out were all very smooth. Thank you Dan and Norisel for a wonderful stay!

  • An amazing place about 5 minutes away from Popoyo by Moto. The house was sparkling clean and really comfortable. The rooftop terrace is breathtaking. We loved to stay here and would recommend it to anyone!

    Sara2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Superb house with magnificent view! Well equipped and clean. A bit far from everything if you don't have a car. Rene was a host of choice! Thank you for the nice stay :)

    Francis2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a return trip - so need we say more? The home is magical, Popoyo beach is incredible - and Rene and Ernesto are awesome hosts!

    Kathleen2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rene's hilltop oasis is a spectacular place. The house itself was designed with clearly a lot of thought towards light, space, wind, sun and the view - the ocean and the stars. Local hardwood is used throughout the house and the landscaping also brings the natural beauty of Nicaragua to front stage. The place is immaculate and the layout provides for both privacy and sharing. Ernesto, the caretaker is very attentive. A nice walk to the beach or minutes by car it is both convenient and quiet. Near several local restaurants as well as Rancho Santana's Finca Y Mar. For those that prefer to cook, you have all the kitchen tools you need and a wonderful view. Definitely recommended!!

    Kathleen2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really great place. isolated and quiet. Good balance quality price.

    Roberto2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a pearl! My boyfriend and I have rented this place for a week, and everything was so perfect for us. Very clean, beautitul and close to the beach and many restaurants. We felt very comfortable in this house. Also, Rene is such a good host. He answered every questions we had and he also proposed us so many good places to visit. He also arranged for us a surf lesson with Carlos, which was really nice and fun. I strongly recommend this place!!!

    Laurianne2019-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Rene's home is awesome - the design and space are amazing. The location just minutes from the beach is great - and just high enough up that the views and the breeze are spectacular. At night, with little light contamination, you can see thousands of stars from the rooftop deck. Rene deserves SuperHost ranking - he went out of his way to welcome us and checking in throughout our stay, was very helpful in terms of providing accurate directions and many tips for eating, local trips, etc. He was also extremely gracious in sharing his space, kitchen tools, etc.Ernesto, the caretaker, was also very helpful. Definitely worth a visit!

  • We absolutely loved our stay. One of the most magical sunsets we have enjoyed was from the front porch here.

    Matias2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! 2 extraordinary nights in this paradisiac corner. The welcome was perfect (Ashley is very charming!), The hut was immaculate and what about the view for the sunset. You should know that Popoyo is a very very quiet place so it is the ideal place to relax. We were amazed at how loud the waves were! Not as relaxing as you might think, but still great. Really nice experience. A few small restaurants nearby, it was very fun and romantic as a couple :)

    Carolanne2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cabana was amazing! So quiet, so peaceful and loved laying in the hammock all day.

    Lauren2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • BOOK THIS PLACE ASAP! The location and cabana itself were better than I ever imagined. I saw the most beautiful sunsets and sun rises. The location of the cabanas was perfect it was in the center of the beach with a couple restaurants on each side. Every morning I walked half a mile down the beach for 9am yoga with a beautiful view for only $10. This place is a travelers dream. I traveled here solo and Ashley/Ali were so accommodating to all my needs and questions. They’re both kind and so welcoming. The community kitchen is such a great aspect. It’s nice to enjoy fresh home cooked while away. They make it feel like home. I cannot recommend this place enough!! I will be back as soon as I get a chance.

    Victoria2020-01-24T00:00:00Z

    Casa Colibri is located 5 min walking distance from famous beach break in Guasacate and Popoyo Reef and Outer Reef is only 1km south ..sleeps 4 people comfortable and has wifi..enjoy the 300+offshore days a year and shred your 3 sessions a day!!
    Comftably sleeping 4 to5 people in 2 bedrooms with good mattresses,2 single beds downstairs and one double queen bed upstairs,and a big coach in cement(see pics) that eventually sleeps another person... 5 in total, easily the best rental in the whole area for the proximity to the beach and the price quality ... and privacy and safety!! Equipped kitchen with 4gastops & oven and fridge,coffeemaker , Blender-juicer,etc There's a terrace with hammock in the back of the house and a balcony upstairs attached to the bedroom... Perfect Wifi all over the house ... and spacious garden with privacy & palm trees and fruit trees!
    its located in the better part of Guasacate,popoyo with good restaurants close by , its private & quiet and still steps from the beach !
  • Calmness, waves, a small house where life is good and a superb beach.

    Loïc2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Colobri far exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect for what we were looking for and the house had a great setup - inviting and relaxing space to unwind after fun morning surf sessions (loved the hammocks in the back yard and the upstairs deck)! Very close to the beach - bring a pair of binoculars and you can easily check out the breaks from the beach in front in the early mornings to help navigate where you want to go. Arnaud is super helpful and available for anything you may need during your trip. A couple of recommendations - make friends with William at the Ola Verde in the hotel (that looks a little abandoned) right in front of the beach - he usually has ice cold beers for 35 Cordoba perfect for watching the sunset on the beach. We loved La Perla restaurant that was on the main road about a 2 minute walk to the left - excellent fresh seafood (we had ceviche daily - and they take credit cards), owned and operated by a local family. Also, highly recommend going down to El Astillero for fresh seafood - lobsters, shrimp, fish etc - as the house has everything you need to cook a delicious meal. We will 100% be back and can't even imagine staying anywhere else.

    Lygia2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for a month at Casa Colibri and were so sad to leave. The house is great - it’s well set up and as described. We spent lots of time in hammocks on the back verandah and on the balcony from the upstairs bedroom at different times of the day. The house is really well set up and has everything you need. The location is perfect on a quiet back street but a 100 metres or so from a beautiful beach and a bike ride to other restaurants and bars that Arnaud recommended perfectly. Arnaud was really responsive on WhatsApp despite being away at the time. The beach breaks a couple of hundred metres north were consistent on higher tide and the breaks around popoyo were a bike ride and walk away. Arnaud connected us to the local fruit and vegetable truck, horse rides, lessons in coconut leaf weaving for my daughter, and more. Everywhere we felt we were staying in the house of someone well liked and respected in this friendly little community. Make sure you buy everything you need in Rivas apart from fruit and veg as there is just two tiny shops locally. We got by without a car and enjoyed being bike range restricted but a car would open up more options for exploring further north and south. The area is a little paradise and staying in Arnaud’s place makes you able to experience a little of being part of that. It was quiet but felt very safe and very welcoming. Highly recommended and I hope to get back there again myself one day.

    Tony2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Colibri is a wonderful place to stay. Comfortable and lots of living space to enjoy. Just a short walk to the beach!

    Trevor2019-07-12T00:00:00Z

    Nicklas2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Colibri is just the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful beach holiday – no matter you come for surfing or not. We stayed here for 10 days and really enjoyed the place. The house is super clean, lovingly furnished and provides everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen. On the back of the house is a nice covered terrace with hammocks and a view over the garden. We spent most of our house-time there. Arnaud (the host) is a nice guy – very friendly and helpful. We could always text him if we had any questions (and we had many 😉). The beach is just a two-minute walk away. However, the beach break there was not surfable in april. We were told, that within the rainy season it shall be surfable as well. We always went to “Popoyo” break or to the “Learner Bay”. As the house is a bit away from the main breaks and the “touristic centre” (with hostels, restaurants and two minimarkets), you need a little while to get there. We rented some bikes with surf-racks from Arnaud, which made things a lot easier. Due to its remote location the house is a very peaceful place – even during semana santa. All in all, we’d love to come back to Popoyo and to Casa Colibri. Thank you again Arnaud for your great hospitality!

    Patrick2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place!

    Michael2019-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is an awesome house! At least as good as shown on the pictures. Big house an great house planning. It has everything you need and more. Very comfy beds and wifi working all over. Arnaud wasn't there when we visited but was exceptionally good ad communicating and making sure we had everything we needed. The house is located just a 2 min walk from a big lovely beach with very few people. The main surf break (Popoyo reef) is located approx 10 min on bicycle (Arnaud has some bicycles) and another 10 min walking across a river. It is sometimes possible to surf the beach out front as well. Will def recommend this place!

    Popoyo, Departamento de Rivas, Nicaragua

    Sirena Surf House has been designed to welcome it's guests in a cozy atmosphere. Cuarto Charlie is a beach front room with a private entrance, a comfortable king size bed, a private bathroom with walk-in shower and a private little patio. The style could be described as "Colonial meets the beach". The wooden sliding doors open up to beautiful ocean views of Playa Popoyo. Your bed is just steps away from the Pacific. Come enjoy Sirena Surf House with me.
    Sirena Surf House as mentioned above is right on the ocean. The idea is to create a beautiful and comfortable environment where guest can really relax and feel at home.
    Sirena Surf House is located on the beautiful remote Playa Popoyo. Although tourism is picking up in the area, it is till pretty untouched. There are several cafes and restaurants only a short 5 minute walk from the house such as: Cafe con Leche, Magnific Rock and Buena Onda.
  • Isabelle’s place was just what I needed! Super serene, clean, and lovely! The accommodations were just like the pics and the hammocks were a dream (I lied in them for sunrise and sunset) taking in all the beauty of the beach. The favorite parts of my stay were the daily delicious breakfasts prepared by Petrona, on-site seaside sunset massages, and my really fun surf lesson (complete with professional photos)! I high recommend staying here and would return!

    Marissa2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Bella's house is very nice, the attention was incredible. Adriana and Petro were the best, they are one of the most beautiful people I have ever met. The spectacular rooms and breakfast. The ocean view from the beautiful house and the starry sky of popoyo are unique. I really want to go back now!

  • This spot is a dream. It's on the beach (literally), so you fall asleep to the sound of waves and wake up to sand, salt and sea. The location is perfect, a short walk to a few friendly surf breaks, delicious restaurants, etc. However, all that aside, I'd recommend staying here for the breakfasts alone. It's fresh, delicious, and served with the best view in town! Nothing beats a whole french press of local coffee and huevos rancheros! Bella was super helpful and fun to talk to. She knows the area well, and can help set up massages, surf board rentals, or recommend any local activities. A+ experience for us!

    Suz2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful stay at Isabelle's place ! Her place is perfectly located right on the beach and decor is really lovely. Isabelle is a wonderful host and went out of her way to ensure we had a nice time ! She also helped us to book a motorbike, gave us lots of tips where to surf and good restaurants to check out. It was really nice having such a personal experience with such a great host. We cant wait to come back for another visit in the future !! Thanks Isabelle !!

The whole place is very clean and created with much love for the details. Also the breakfast is reeeally good! Thank you so much, Bella! All the best from Nina & John

    Popoyo, Departamento de Rivas, Nicaragua

    Nica Life is located beachfront in Popoyo, Nicaragua. Wake up on the beach every morning. We are directly in between Playa Popoyo and Playa Santana, which means you are a few steps away from some incredible surf spots! You practice yoga or have a lazy day in a hammock on our upstairs deck over looking the ocean.
    Our lodge is located directly on the beach. We have several surf breaks right in our backyard, also we have a second story hammock lounge which doubles as a yoga deck. Our first level has a shared kitchen with communal eating area, hammocks and bar.
    We are located on a safe and quiet part of the beach. Our neighborhood consists of many expats who have chosen Nicaragua as a place to call home. There are several local businesses and restaurants located in the near vicinity.
  • Great place. Great beach.

  • Location is amazing. About 5-10 mins walk to Magnific Rock and Beginners Bay, and around 15-20 mins scenic walk to Popoyo Reef/Finca Bar and Santana (all excellent surf spots!). The room is crisp and clean, and the housekeepers, Jose and Santiago are always around and helpful if you need anything. The deck is my favourite--where I practice my yoga and meditate or just read in the hammocks. Beautiful sunsets in the evening right out front too! It's got everything I need and more. Chris is always responsive and very amiable. I highly recommend staying here <3
