“Unbelievably fantastic! The BEST Place for peace and quiet! Randy makes it 5 stars!”
Reviewed August 27, 2010

Casa del Soul is THE place if you want to relax, away from the hustle and bustle, and soak up the sun. However it is NOT the place to go to party and drink. It is located a 10 minute car ride from the town and there is nothing in the area but serenity. I know you have probably already read many of the reviews here so I will not rehash that but rather try to add to those comments.

Randy make Casa Del Soul a fantastic place to stay. Besides offering to help you with anything, even the task of getting into town Randy is ready, willing, and able. Randy also goes above and beyond the call do duty. For example, today he took me to another town to see a doctor because I got an allergic reaction on my feet to some insect bites that I got at the Jicaro lodge in Nicaragua (great place too!) Randy drove me all the way to the next town and made sure I was taken care of. Randy is great and so is his wife Brenda.

The hotel itself (all three bedrooms of it) is located over a small mountain away from the small town of San Juan del Sur. It is quiet and peaceful there. If you are looking for a good time, with drinking, and fun this is NOT the place for you at all. It is serene and peaceful and from the balcony and deck you cannot see ONE single house or human being anyway. Monkeys abound, as do birds, lizards, and even a grey fox.

I could go on and on but see for yourself, read the other reviews, compare to the other locations. IF you want peace and quiet this is your place to relax. IF you want party and fun this is NOT your place but there are many other hotel in San Juan del Sur that would be!

I would recommend renting a car if you want to go to town often, also buying some groceries and make dinner the sunsets are amazing and the common kitchen is great.

You will not be disappointed staying here at Casa del Soul. The view, the view, the view.
Very comfortable rooms, a nice refreshing pool overlooking paradise. Great hosts Randy and Brenda are. As everyone else says, wish we could stay longer.

We found a gem in this wonderful B and B. Randy and Belinda are very gracious hosts and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. The location is simply the best with views of the ocean that we have not seen in many years. A huge bedroom with a private balcony and naturally a hammock. A private beach to explore or fish and even better - sundowners next to a sparkling swimming pool. Total privacy with the use of your own fully equipped kitchen. The amazing village - San Juan Del Sur - is an absolute must to visit and enjoy local seafood and characters. Highly recommended.

Casa Del Soul is an absolutely beautiful B and B with outstanding views of the ocean. The pool was fabulous, but Randy (the host) was the best. He made us feel as if we were visiting relatives and was extremely helpful in advising us regarding activities. He met us in the town when we arrived and every step of our stay was helpful and made sure we were taken care of. Casa Del Soul is truly a retreat in which to relax and take in the beauty while feeling you are in luxury or to be as busy as you might want to be in the town or taking advantage of the beaches and surfing. Wonderful experience and we will be back!

We just finished a surf tour with our Partner Casa Del Sol with a total of 12 people. Not only was CDS prepared to handle this size of group, but the logistics of coordinating travel to and from the airport, to and from the Harbor and in and out of town was seamless. Randy the owner with his wonderful to be wife Brenda had Rice and Shrimp Nicaragau styloe waiting for us when the team arrived after a 12 hour flight through many countries. The accomadations were wonderful, and of course the off shore wind cooled things down to make our arrival very pleasent.

I highly recommend CDS as your destination spot.

What a wonderful spot to vacation! The house is beautiful with a beautiful pool and ocean stunning ocean views. The rooms are comfortable and airy with modern amenities. The service was phenomenal and Randy and Brenda went out of their way to make our trip a memorable one. They were able to recommend and help coordinate daily excursions. I would highly recommend Casa Del Soul!
