I had the opportunity to stay at La Veranera for almost two weeks during my three month trip through Central America this year.
It's a beautiful, private owned house right at the beach (Playa el Coco). It has multiple bed rooms, a big and fully equiped kitchen (ask the owner first if you can use it, he wont say no), a nice pool, clean bathrooms and hot water. The rooms itself are very clean and spacious. Beds are comfortable. The cleaning ladies are very nice and friendly.
Besides that, the owner is a very cool and friendly guy from California who likes to catch some good waves from time to time. ;)
The best thing about my stay was the beach itself. Playa el Coco is about 1 kilometer long and not very busy. You can basically lose yourself in beautiful nature and amazing sunsets! Perfect for relaxation! We even played cross golf at the beach because we had so much space. The area is not so touristy (yet) and you will not be bothered from people trying to sell sun glases or anything like that. ;)
Playa el coco is just about 20 min by car from San Juan Del Sur and basically every cap/ taxi can take you there. Or you just ask around and people give you a lift.
Right next to the house is a little shop where you can buy the basics. For bigger shopping you should take a ride to San Juan Del Sur, which is amazing.
I would say the house is perfect for couples and single travelers, but I also heard that they sometimes rent the house for smaller groups of people. Just check with the owner.
I will definately go back there when I will be in Nicaragua again. Miss the hammock, the awesome beach view and the Flor de Cana rum on the rocks with some coke. Insider tipp. ;)
