First I want to say that I'm glad that Tim has changed his ad, because we certainly felt deceived with the previous ad which indicated that the house had a stove. It didn't. This might not be important to many people who book for only a few days, but we booked for 4 weeks and my wife has a food...

Management response:

Herve, Thank you again for your stay. I'm sorry that the high winds impacted your time in SJDS. Although the house does not offer a four burner stove, the single burner is sufficient for most guests (and can easily be moved if needed). I've taken your suggestion to heart and will be adding a couple bars for hanging clothes (below...

My daughters and I stayed 3 nights in this house and loved it. The location is great. We were able to relax in the hammock and barbecue. We had a lot of privacy and felt safe. The owner was resourceful. I have no doubts in recommending this house.

Management response:

I'm glad that you enjoyed your time at my house!

First the good: Owner Tim was easy to work with as we went through a frustrating period with Flip Key trying to change dates. The house was cute, clean and located in an area which made it easy to access the entire town. Beds were good and the outdoor seating area with BBQ was a pleasant space. Ultimately, however, the...

Management response:

Bruce, I am sorry that you found staying in the center of SJDS to not be for you. True to a typical Latin-American beach town, noise is part of the culture. This is particularly so during the holiday festivities of December and Easter Week. Celebrations, parades, bands in the streets (at all hours), fireworks, and residents in "an extra festive...

About the neighborhood
San Juan del Sur is a small beach town on a large sandy C-shaped beach/bay.
The house is located in the middle of this 'C', just three short blocks from the beach (approx a 2-4 min walk).
Easy walk to all that town offers (restaurants, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, craft stores, mercado, the one supermarket, surf shops,
tour operators, etc.). Due to it's central location, it's very easy to find the many transport services to take you to any of the other local
beaches or any point beyond.

NOTE: Town is known to get festive at times, especially the bars along the beach road. The house location is ideal since it is a close walk, but the bar noise does not reach the home.
