The SpaceThis quiet, secluded, up and coming area has only a few vacation homes in the vicinity. There is a small restaurant a short drive to the south or and small convenience stores in the village of Salinas Grandes.
The location provides a unique travelling experience. Unimpeded surfing, fishing and day trips for any taste. You can have a leisurely day touring a coffee farm or taking a boat tour. Get a little more active horseback riding, or you can go all out inspecting the vent of a live volcano, zip lining in the jungle down the side of a volcano, or tobogganing down the side of a volcano. Of course, starting your day on the Pacific Ocean is amazing. Guest AccessGuests have complete access to the property, with exception to the cabana where we (Matt and Rachel) reside. Interaction with GuestsStarting November 1, 2016, our Canadian chef and registered massage therapist hosts will offer delicious family-style meals with varying options each day for guests. Massage therapy services will also be available by request.

We (English and French speaking) are available online and by phone to arrange and communicate all the details for your stay. As of Nov 1,2016 we will await guests upon arrival to meet and greet and will be available to make all arrangements with you directly during your stay. This includes delicious chef made family-style meals with varying options each day, and massage therapy services (extra charges apply). We can arrange all excursions with our local partners including surfing, fishing, volcano boarding, volcano zip-lining, gaze into a volcano vent at Massaya, coffee farm tours, León city trips, as well as transfers to any destination. The NeighborhoodOne of the biggest draws to this property is unimpeded surfing. There are several breaks all along the beach and there is virtually no one around competing for the waves.
Puerto Sandino, a very popular surf destination can be seen from the rooftop patio. It is an offshore break, an amazing long left-hander over a sand bar. It can be very fast and hollow but also provides long barrels. The break can be accessed by boat about 20 minutes from the house. Our home is also accessible to many local surfing locations and we would be happy to arrange transport, surfing lessons and boating excursions along the Pacific coast.
World-class fishing is also at your doorstep, either surf casting, fishing from a boat in the estuary close by, or an ocean charter can be arranged.
Fishing rods and tackle are available for rent. We would love to cook up your catch of the day for dinner if you wish! Getting AroundWe are happy to make any transportation arrangements including airport transfers.
If you do not bring your own rented vehicle, we can put you in contact with a bilingual taxi driver/guide.
Otherwise renting a 4x4 given the road conditions is a must. Please inquire for detailed driving directions. Other Things to NoteEach of the three bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom. Each room has two twin beds that can be left separate or put together to form a king bed. Let us know how you want the rooms set up and we will have everything ready for your arrival.

The pool is maintained daily by our staff. It is a natural pool, there is no chlorine used.

The result is a very refreshing, natural swim that is good for your skin!
