We are so blessed to encounter some wonderful people at our camp/house. Our TripAdvisor account brings joyful tears to our eyes. Our latest review has a very special place in our hearts. Thank you Lisa and Iz and we can’t wait to see you again. Oh and Iz, keep surfing! Luke says “Hi!”
“Surf Tours Nicaragua THANK-YOU!!! We had the most amazing adventure with you. From the moment Jose greeted us with a huge smile we could feel the stress of NYC life melting away. We stopped on route at a local pharmacy for additional sunscreen and fell asleep only to awaken to the gates of our home for 9 days. The house is magnificent, just like the photos. Arched doorways, terracotta stone floor tiles, spiral staircase, the perfect pool. We chose to stay in a double bedded private room with shower, and the AC saved us each night. Located right on the beach we spent many hours in hammocks lounging on the huge porch lovingly referred to as El Rancho. Fridge at hand always filled with cold drinks, and awesome tunes kept the tropical atmosphere heavenly.
We were there during Santa Semana so a bit of 24/7 beach party ensued by locals until Monday morning when the beach emptied and we felt like it was ours. Blue water, blue sky, magical surf spots, soft sand under your feet. The sunsets were like a movie: transitioning every night around 5:15pm from a bright orange sun to an explosion of purple, pink, and gold. **Precision management and knowledge by Greg who clearly had everything well-organized in the most chill manner. Expert surf guides who are genuinely the coolest friends you never had before. Kayla is a mermaid goddess whose divine massages, professional grade photography, artwork and perfectly challenging yoga sessions enticed us during our stay. Guests arrived and departed with fluidity day and night, no worries.
STN has established itself in the neighborhood and there is a real sense of family amongst the crew. Its obvious they’re passionate about what they do and their goal is to create the perfect vacation/ stay for you.
Staff is constantly cleaning the house, and there’s always an ample supply of soap, shampoo, purified water, snacks available. All are very aware of environmental conservation. (but bring plenty of sunscreen and bug repellent!)
I’m a real picky eater and I felt absolutely catered to. Homemade delicious meals were prepared 3x/day including fresh salads, if you’re lucky Kayla will make you one of her banana smoothies. They even made a special dish each dinner for us. We ate at a long family-style table and the conversations were one of the best parts of the trip. (besides hanging with the crew, G&K on the stoop …and special shout out to Shawn, Keith, Markel, Luke, Olsa and Dalle~Dalle~Dalle (aka: “Dale”).
Day trips to Leon, a breathtaking lagoon, and Gran Pacifica were xtra highlights for us. Our goal is to return soon and explore some more of this beautiful country with G&K. We can’t thank you enough. xoxoxoxo”
