Accommodation is for 8 people and the setup is perfect for couples and one or two families. The first level has the social areas with a “Great Room” (open concept kitchen, dining, living) overlooking the ocean and opening into the main deck, barbeque area and “hammock portico'. The kitchen is fully equipped - gas stove/oven, fridge, microwave, toaster, blender, espresso and regular coffee maker, pots and pans, utensils, dishes and cutlery. You get a charcoal (provided) grill ready for you. Although we have running water we provide a 5-gallon bottled water for cooking and drinking. You only need to bring your consumables. Two additional bedroom levels invite to the quieter, private areas. Stairs take you to the second level common balcony accessing two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a couple of twin beds that can be joined together (if desired). Bedroom 3: up to four people can sleep in a single cot and a bunk bed (double below, single above). All windows are screened allowing you to sleep listening to the ocean. The 3rd level takes you to the master bedroom (King-size bed) with en-suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the ocean. There is also private porch with sitting area and swings and a walk through to a private outdoor shower for a refreshing rinse after the beach. All bedrooms are well appointed with comfortable beds, linens, pillows, towels and beach towels. Bathrooms include hair dryer, hand wash soap and 1L water bottle. Plenty of screened windows provide natural cross ventilation with ceiling fans in every room. Balconies and terraces come furnished with a combination of hammocks, swings, lounging chairs, tall tables/chairs to watch the view. Our live-in caretakers Luis and Marina are there to set you up, house cleaning and maintenance and, assist you with any question (Spanish only!). Casa Malinche is a place to unplug (no cell signal or Wifi). It is the perfect place for the selective nature minded traveller who loves adventure and sandy beaches away from crowds and mass resorts. Birds start visiting early in the morning - chocoyos, pijules, urracas... Little crabs, lizards and frogs may walk with you at night… A 5-minute walk down the hill will take you to the beach. El Remanso beach offers the best 'learn to surf' waves. You can get lessons and rent boards right there. The beach is beautiful, white sands, turquoise water and really, really hot sun all day long. A couple of ranchos right on the beach offer cold beers and simple but delicious food (quesadillas, fish tacos, mmm!). Sunsets are spectacular. A full moon setting down the bay is a sight to wonder. The night stars will have you looking at constellations you've heard about, but never found the time to discover. The sounds of frogs, wind and ocean waves will lull you into sleep. We love food, wine and entertaining. Our kitchen is set up with all the basic necessities to cook and enjoy company. Gas stove/oven, fridge, microwave, espresso and regular coffee maker, pots and pans and a charcoal grill will help you improvise wonderful cooking adventures. A well-tended patch of fresh herbs right on the terrace (mint, oregano, culantro, basil, thyme and anise) may give you some inspiration. Eventually, when you feel the urge to plug in...just drive to San Juan! More

About the neighborhood
El Remanso is a very private and a quiet perfect beach. Sometimes you will have the beach all to yourself. House owners live there seasonally. Tourists from San Juan arrive typically for surfing lessons by late morning. We love quick day trips to San Juan to get our fresh catch of the day (red snapper, lobster, shrimps...). You can get a wonderful variety of seafood at San Juan’s harbour. A trip to the market and a mad rush to Pali (grocery store) for general stuff and vegetables typically complete the foraging. There is always the bigger Maxi-Pali (a bigger supermarket) in Rivas. San Juan is a fun place day and night. Restaurants, bars, coffee places and Wifi everywhere can help you get your fix of crowds, noise, traffic and night life!
How to get there
San Juan del Sur (SJDS) is a bustling port town 2.5 - 3 hours from Managua Airport (depending on traffic and time of travel). San Juan del Sur is also about 1.5 - 2 hours from Liberia airport in Costa Rica. El Remanso is located 4.6 Km south from San Juan del Sur. It is a smooth ride on a dirt road, only 15 minutes away from San Juan! You can rent a 2-WD car at the airport and drive to el Remanso beach house. It also be great for any other day trips. However, if you want to explore near by surfer beaches (Maderas, Popoyo, Majagual, Gigante etc), we recommend to rent a 4-W car. You can also make arrangements with a local taxi for pick up to run errrands between Remanso and San Juan. Just ask us if you need more tips.
