It was obvious that this house was wonderful at some point, unfortunately it's been neglected and has lost its charm. The kitchen was stocked with cooking supplies, you just won't want to use them. With no water pressure to wash dishes or clean, we quickly lost our appetite. We weren't welcomed with any of the bright furnishings shown in the...

After reading earlier reviews, my wife and I had a very clear idea of what we would find and our expectations were pretty much on point. The pictures accurately reflect the facility. Eddie and Anita were friendly and helpful. The howler monkeys played in the trees above us as we sat in the pool, on two separate occasions. The pool...

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at Casa Cresta. Every time we come we find another restaurant within walking distance of the house. Some of our favorites....The Secret Cove is great for shade and a cold tona while enjoying Marsella and the new Haiku hotel is fabulous. One HUGE improvement is the maintained trail through the jungle directly...

About the neighbourhood
Casa Cresta is a secluded private house that is perfectly located between Playa Maderas and Playa Marsella. The house has it's own private pool along with ample open space both inside and out. The house was built on top of a hill over looking the ocean, and the patio is literally in canopy of the trees. What makes this house different is that we basically have no neighbors. The only thing that will disturb your peace and quiet are the howler monkeys that will be swinging from the trees.

Within a 10 minute walk is Playa Maderas, which is probably the most consistent surfing beach break in all of Nicaragua. Maderas has 3 restaurants, surf board rentals, lessons, and is where most of the surf competitions are held in southern Nicaragua. We are also a 15 minute walk to Playa Marsel...
