After coming back home, we're still amazed by how wonderful a stay it was at Casa Marazul. We are a family of four. The house is really airy and centered around a huge Rancho (the biggest we've seen in Nica :)). We spent a lot of time of our stay under the Rancho (abundant room for kids to run around, a perfect yoga platform with a nice breeze), and enjoyed the stunning view and sound of the surf all day long. The 4 bedrooms are spacious and clean, and the beds are super comfortable... and a snooze in the hammock on the upstairs porch was simply amazing. Each night we saw the most incredible sunset while jumping in the little pool right by the Rancho. The sandy beach is just a few steps down from the Rancho. Our kids spent hours exploring the tide pools, swimming in the swim holes on the beach. If you feel a bit more adventurous, there is a surfing school a few houses down (bonus point: they serve French crepes twice a week).
The caretakers Felipe & Maria were very friendly and helpful. We had Maria cook one dinner for us (as an additional service) and the chicken was so yummy and we all loved it. We also tried a restaurant (Casa Todo Bueno) with walking distance, they serve great burgers and pasta.
We love this place and are telling our friends! The pictures don't do its justice... you have to be in it to realize how wonderful it is... It would be a great spot for family, a group of friends, or a getaway for a couple. We will visit again for sure.
