“Amazing views, great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

This was our first time to see Hauler monkeys all around the house and making very strange noises - such a great location! Total privacy with hills all around and a gorgeous bay in front. Had a wonderful time - fell in love with your dog !

Room Tip: Randy upgraded us to the deluxe room which was beautiful

Great house on the quiet side of the bluff in SJDS. Which mean you get epic sunsets every evening. Randy went far and beyond a good host, picked up extra propane for the grill and groceries for us without us even asking. His chef cooked an amazing breakfast that was waiting for us every morning. Would definitely stay there again!

Had a great stay at Randy's place. He provided everything we needed, including a local phone which was a really thoughtful touch. The pool was lovely, cleaned daily with a stunning view of the bay. Breakfasts were very filling. Hardly any need for lunch. I would recommend it to anyone.

Randy's house is just glorious and such a good place to relax in a hammock with a beer or a mango juice overlooking the ocean. The views are amazing and the house is very peacefully situated, well equipped and spacious. The private bay at the bottom of the hill is a great walk and the howler monkeys and parrots provide entertainment! The house is near enough to San Juan del Sur to be able to get down to town for plenty of choice of eating places and there is much to do in the surrounding areas with wonderful beaches. A trip to Ometepe is well worth doing.
Randy is a friendly and very helpful host, so thanks Randy for a wonderful stay.

We spent 2 weeks at Casa del Soul and we had an amazing time. We needed to work a lot and Randy was really helpful and made us feel at home. The breakfast is delicious and the room are very confortable with an amazing view of the ocean. we had the chance to see a lot of whales jumping. Great time! Thanks again Randu

If you're looking for a gorgeous location away from the hustle of SJDS, Casa Del Soul will not disappoint. Although there is quick access to miles of Nacascolo Bay beaches, and a 45 minute stroll around the cove to an incredible stretch of protected white sand, this is not you're typical beach resort, and to my way of thinking it's much better. A nearly private retreat with staggering views from beautifully appointed rooms, and a staff that quickly becomes family. There is literally nothing Randy won't do to make your stay more comfortable, and if you run into problems, as I did with my rental car, you'll be glad you chose Casa Del Soul because Randy has your back. We were in Nica for a wedding, and when researching I marveled at all the great reviews for Casa Del Soul on TA, but after spending 4 nights there, It's became perfectly clear to me. The views, the staff, the easy access to everything SJDS has to offer,the cooked to order breakfast, good WiFi, the indomitable Randy, and your new best friend Chucho the house dog (part Rottweiler, part teddy bear) all make Casa Del Soul a rare find for those of us that like our vacations like our music: Full of natural rhythm, with a ton of Soul.

Room Tip: 2nd floor views are exquisite.

We stayed at Casa Del Soul for 6 days in March. My fiancee and I had a very relaxing and peaceful time. The place was just what we where looking for! We did have a rental car so most of the day we would be out exploring the countryside and surfing. I could not think of a better place to come back to in the afternoon to swim in the pool, hike down to the bay or just take in the awsome view, feel the breeze and watch the beautiful sunsets.
The hotel is just outside of the town of San Juan Del Sur where there are shops, restaurants and night life. The thing I like is we could enjoy what the town had to offer but then return to the peaceful bliss of the hotel where we would get a very good night sleep and be re-energized for the next days adventures.
The owner Randy is very knowedgeable of the area and pretty much all of Nicaragua. He can help you plan your days so you get the most out of your trip and stay on budget too. He is a very nice guy! There is also different chefs that cook dinner a few times a week at the hotel which is very delicious and hassle free after a busy day.
We cannot wait for our next trip and stay at Casa Del Soul!

Room Tip: There is a room on the back side for the travelers on a tight budget but still have all the ambiance...
