We traveled on a family vacation and needed a place large enough to accommodate four people, with three beds as my kids hate to share beds. Ike's place fit the bill. We stayed in room 7 on the top floor of the building on the East side with an ocean view. While the room could have used a paint job, it fit the bill for my family. It had a little deck and a nice view of the ocean and Little Corn Island. We were able to walk across the street and snorkel right in front of the property.

Ike was an excellent host and added much to our experience. He communicated via email before the trip and was at the airport waiting for us upon our arrival. On our second day, Ike drove us around the entire island giving us an excellent 90 minute tour. Ike is from the Corn Islands and you can see how proud he is of the islands.

Each morning Ike hosted breakfast, which was basically the "typical" Nicaraguan breakfast. While it got a little redundant after four days it was great to have a nice fresh breakfast so close.

My family loved the North side of Great Corn Island and Ike's Place was an excellent choice.

The only negative, the neighbor was in the middle of a remodel, so there were workers on site M-F making workers noise.

Room Tip: Room seven had great views.

Yep, Ike is da man. You would be hard-pressed to find a more congenial, pleasant and helpful host than Ike. He seems to truly enjoy all his guests and goes out of his way to make sure they have everything they need to enjoy Big Corn Island. His assistant, Eva, is also a pleasure to be around and her breakfasts are great! The rooms are spotlessly clean, large and airy (never needed the AC), bathrooms are huge, great views of the sea from every room. If you go to Big Corn, drop in and check out Ike's Place!

Ike’s place
Corn Island is still a hidden paradise.
Ike’s place is situated on the beach, very close to excellent restaurants and bakeries. This bed and breakfast place provides a very affordable, clean lodging. The personal service offered by Ike and his assistant Eva is very friendly and pleasant.
The typical Nicaraguan breakfast is tasty and the price is reasonable.
The price for the room includes beach towels and you can swim the ocean across the street from Ike’s place. Snorkeling gear is available for rent.
The A/C needs a silencer to be of practical use.
If you want a larger beach, tale a taxi to the “Pick nick Beach” but be aware of the sand flies that wakes up and feasts on you in the afternoons.

Room Tip: Value for money

No surprise to see a distinct pattern in previous reviews, and this one won't be any different - great place to stay, and highly recommended! Ike is a great guy, very welcoming and attentive, and enormously helpful. Eva too, and great breakfasts. The location is great, easy walking distance from town, the beach was 20 yards from my room, and the cool breezes coming from the north kept things comfortable at night. A great place, five-star in all respects.

Room Tip: I had the upper room in the cabana nearest the sea on the west side - would go for that again though I'm sure they're all great.

We called Ike right before we left Small Corn Island, not only did he have space for us, but he came and picked us up at the docks. Ike was also kind enough to take us to the airport in the morning. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend staying at Ike's!
