We love Casa Culebra
This was our second visit to wonderful Casa Culebra. The house is beautiful. The kitchen is very well equipped. The beds are super comfy. The deck is absolutely perfect for watching the sunset with a cocktail. We woke up to howler monkeys and hung with the vultures at the pool. The beach is a short drive away and is beautiful. The nacatamales at Matilda’s on the beach are the best:) we surfed, played in the waves and did tidal pool exploring. We are coming back next year!
So, it's the third time we have returned to Casa Culebra and it absolutely never disappoints. The house is so cool, in every way. Not only does the architecture allow a constant breeze to flow through, it's so well positioned for that sunset!
We realise we love it so much because of the inside/outside experience. You are always in contact with nature around and that just feels special.
The house has everything you could need. It's kept beautifully clean by the cleaners who attend almost every other day. I can't work the oven, but no big deal as there is a fantastic gas BBQ on the terrace outside with a view to due for! New addition this year is internet TV, so you can spend all your day time on the local beach watching turtles nesting (yes, that happened this year) and spend your cosy evenings in listening to the sounds of the jungle and watching a Netflix box set. We love everything about this house, Balcones feels safe and peaceful and the surrounding coastline is gorgeous. So happy to have found it. We plan to return again and again if we can. Thank you Suze for a very experience every time.
You and your family are without a doubt the absolutely best fit for Nicaragua. Not only do you embrace my home but submerse yourselves into the culture of the country. You will be forever welcome to our home and our hearts.
Our only regret with Casa Culebra is that we didn't stay longer. An excellent orientation from Elisha and her quick response to any inquiries made everything easy. The home itself is comfortable, unique and fully equipped. Relaxing by the pool was wonderful and the Howlers paid us a visit. The area beaches offer busy or quiet. Great value and a wonderful experience awaits you at Casa Culebra.
You know they always say Calgary people are the best.. well I for one agree wholeheartedly. Thanks for staying with us and hope you come back next year for a longer stay now that you’ve got the lay of the land.
Amazing Family Vacation
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, my family of 4 (children 10 and 12) absolutely LOVED staying at Casa Culebra - from the fantastic view, to the beautiful and well equipped home, you could not ask for more in a vacation rental! We have stayed at many VRBO rentals in Central America and this far exceeded our expectations! First, Elisha was so amazing - first meeting us in SJDS and showing us where to shop for produce and fish and then bringing us to this home - Elisha was always available for questions or assistance with anything. The property staff were so kind and worked so hard all day! The house is a fantastic location to the best beaches - we would drive down to Playa Playones and then walk to the nearby beaches of Maderas and Majugal.
The tranquility and serenity you will experience here is second to none! This has been our favorite family vacation yet and we would love to return!! Thank you Suze for sharing your beautiful home!!
Thank you Rachelle,
Rarely do we have a family that embraces Nicaragua like you did. We are so happy you chose our home for your visit and of course welcome you back anytime. You did your homework before you arrived and that along with Elisha's excellent conceirge services seemed to be the perfect formula for success. We do strive to make everyone's time with us a successful one and you and your family are a true testament that our team makes it work with people who are willing to jump in with both feet.
Suze, Elisha and the Balcones team!
Casa Culebra served as the perfect setting for our worry-free girls’ getaway! The house offered just the right amount of relaxation, adventure, and luxury.
For those of you wondering…yes, the pictures are on point when it comes to the clean and comfortable accommodations you expect to see upon arrival. However, keep in mind what you can’t see that takes the experience to a whole new level.
The sunrise and sunset views from this house (and throughout the property) were breathtaking, and the infinity pool quickly became part of our sunset ritual. Elisha, our concierge, truly served as our Ambassador! She was beyond helpful when it came to booking excursions or simply offering ‘life in Nica’ advice. This gave us the feeling of being on vacation, but also gave us a little taste of the local scene.
We enjoyed 2 evenings in with Chef Adam, which I highly recommend….not only was he a whiz in the kitchen, but he offered comedic commentary in between courses. We also took advantage of surf lessons with Baldo (he should get an award for patience), which was an incredible experience….especially for those of us that surfed for the first time and GOT UP! Last and certainly not least, the groundkeepers and security of the property were very attentive. It was comforting to know that if and when we needed something, they were nearby and promptly provided assistance.
I highly recommend a stay at Casa Culebra, and can say without a doubt, that I am looking forward to a return visit in the (hopefully near) future.
We were so happy to host such a great group. Equally was Adam delighted to be your "Chef" in the kitchen for a couple of memorable meals. We will welcome you back with open arms.
Beautiful relaxing place
My family and friends had a great time at this house, the views were amazing and waking up to sounds of monkeys was the best. You will need a 4x4 to get here , but the tough trail is worth it. I would watch out for the spiders and scorpions in the house, as we seen them almost daily for 2 weeks we were there. Overall a great experience , Gordon and Elisha were always there to answer any questions and lend a helping hand.
Yes those little critters will find their way in. At different times of the year you'll find an abundance and at others none. We do have professionals service our home but due to the nature of the location this can be one of the things you have to deal with. But overall it sounds like the trip was a success and we look forward to seeing you again.
