Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The accommodation is an integral part of a trip because it is a meeting place for travelers and, consequently has the same basis as the country itself, have to remains an unforgettable souvenir.

This establishment is dedicated to travelers "buena onda (good vibes)" , which as we believe, think that cleanliness, comfort and services does not necessarily mean high prices

Come and relax in a hammock in front of a unique view of the bay of San Juan Del Sur from our roof top terrasse !...

The house has been built in the respect of the environment, mixing teack wood and bamboos provided by a local farm.

You will enjoy the view of all the bay of san juan, in one of the hammock, from the large roof top terrace. The amazing view create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
