“Rated 1# for a Reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

This house is in a perfect location. Just a short cab ride from town. Town is a little to wild for our taste in the evenings.The owner Randy was amazing at making sure all aspects of our vacation turned out perfect. Randy was like having a personal assistant who booked everything for us and made sure we had a perfect experience. The rooms were clean, daily housekeeping was nice, breakfast every morning was amazing. Randy even helped us hire a local cook for evenings when we wanted to dine-in. The meals we had at the house with the cook Randy helped us hire turned out to be our best meals. This house is well taken care of. The security for the neighborhood/house was reassuring. The private pool was amazing for cooling off. Covered shade areas were wonderful for getting out of the sun. Strong Wifi signal. Drinking water was provided. Lounge chairs were comfortable. I would not change a thing about Randy our his house. This felt like I was vacationing at home. If you are planning on visiting this area I highly recommend staying here.

Randy,

I have traveled to different parts of the world and I have never experienced the warmness and kind hospitality that I experience this weekend at Casa Soul! This immaculate vacation home is by far the best I have ever encountered! Randy Harvey the owner is absolutely the best! The only thing I can tell you is that you definitely owe it to yourself to come out and experience this amazing 5 star stay. You definitely will encounter the finest, friendliest, service ever!

It is truly like none other!

Thank you Randy for your hospitality and kind treatment! Say hello to Chu Cho for me!!

Fernando and Aleyda

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice!

Randy and Brenda are great hosts of a fantastic property! They’ve got years of experience taking care of people and it shows.

Located just over the hill from San Juan del Sur – past the must-see giant Jesus which overlooks San Juan del Sur and her picture-perfect crescent beach - the ocean view from Casa del Soul is unobstructed, pristine and beautifully framed by jungled headlands. There’s virtual nobody between you and the ocean, or the jungle – maybe a parrot or two and that’s all. Enjoy the same view from your bed, the pool, the kitchen, the salon, the cabana, and pretty much everywhere else on this beautiful and really comfortable property.

Everything to make your vacation easier, more convenient, and relax has been thought through – prepaid phones programmed with taxi numbers, binoculars to scan for whales or study the birds, a great pool-side kitchen for you to make your favorite drinks and some quick snacks, iPod docks to play your favorite tunes, flat panel TVs with satellite reception and loads of DVDs– a flashlight for the dark, a chef who will come make fantastic – and cheap - meals for you if you want.

And if you want to arrange a tour, an excursion, a ride to town, Randy knows the good drivers with the good cars and can get you the right rate. It’s really well thought out . . . really.

We became very comfortable very quickly. So yah, the place is nice, the value is great, and it’s likely to surpass your needs.

Room Tip: Call Randy to fit your needs. Ocean View, Jungle View, there is something for everyone, or rent the...

Had an absolutely incredible stay at Casa del Soul. It is hands down the nicest place we stayed on our trip throughout nicaragua. The owner and his staff are great people and fantastic hosts. Would have loved to spend more time at Casa del Soul, but if ever back in Nicaragua I will certainly be staying again.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for the ocean view room and it is worth it!

All I can say is, amazing. Not only is this in the best location possible up over the hill from the main street/beach, it has unbelievable views, and Randy the owner/caretaker of the property is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Everything about my stay was wonderful and would love to take my whole family back.

We had a wonderful visit to San Juan del Sur. Without knowing anything about the town our host Randy went out of his way to make us feel at home. The house is charming, the pool is refreshing, our breakfasts were delicious. The walk to the beach was quick. The second, more secluded beach, is a brief walk and worth the effort! And of course Chucho, the resident dog, is very entertaining.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Casa Del Soul. It was very nice not to be in SJDS central because it tends to get loud. Rand'y place is secluded, but no to far out to walk into town for food and drinks. The kitchen gives you the option to cook in which is nice. The staff are very helpful, the pool was cool, and Chucho was the perfect guard dog/entertainment piece. You can walk to a secluded beach about 45 minutes away with plenty of distractions on the way, shells, crabs, sea slugs, birds, etc, etc, and Randy is very willing to help you set up many different day adventures and was very accomodating. Great place, great stay.
