Welcome to La Terraza Guest House. We hope you enjoy your vacation here in San Juan del Sur. We are dedicated to making your stay as pleasant as possible. Please tell us if there is anything that we can do to improve your visit. While here, please observe the following policies.
*Checkout time is 11am. There will be a $15 charge for each additional hour without previous arrangements.
*There is no smoking inside the apartments. Please keep smoking to the balconies and rooftop terrace and do not use dishware for ashtrays.
*Water and power are limited in Nicaragua. Please use sparingly. San Juan del Sur is a town of limited water supply and frequently goes hours or days without running water. To ensure that you have running water 24 hours per day or as much as possible, we provide 2 tanks of water storage. This amount is enough to last us 3 days of water usage with a full house. This is only possible with the help of our guests. Please use water sparingly. We ask that you turn water off while brushing teeth, don’t take extra long showers, let us know if your toilet is running, and be careful of letting excess water run in the kitchen.
* Please try to rinse off as much sand as possible outside so as not to clog our drains.
* Please do not take our towels or sheets outside of the apartment including hanging them over windows or balcony.
From Dec 28, 2015 - Jan 01, 2016 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
We booked La Terraza Garden apartment for about two weeks in San Juan Del Sur. My husband and I absolutely loved it!! It was the perfect quiet little apartment. It was in the perfect spot in town close to shops and restaurants. When we wanted to catch the surf bus to beaches we just crossed the street to Casa Oro. Our hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating. Whenever we needed anything they were just an email away. We loved La Terraza and hope to be back soon!!
The location is perfect everything is close by, the beach, main strip, restaurants and it's in a safe neighborhood.
This review will be for both the 2nd floor and the 3rd floor.
My partner and i stayed on the second floor for 2 nights and it was great. There's no air conditioning but the ocean breeze is all you need. We came here to celebrate birthdays and although the place needs some updating it was a great stay so much so that we were going to book. A third night...UNTIL at around 2:30 a.m. in the morning we had a visitor or actually a resident of the apartment show up. A Mouse that lives behind the stove. I have been all over South East Asia, Mexico and the Caribbean and have never seen a mouse. We immediately left a message and didn't get any response until we had to go the office in the morning to let them know there was a mouse.
They ended up moving us up to the third floor but it was our last day and my birthday and had to wait until 2:00 pm(so no day trips)to move so we basically had to wait around for them to clean which was a huge inconvenience. I even sent them a message letting them know I wouldn't be staying an extra night because of everything and got 'crickets'. We live in Nicaragua and would've stayed again. There's a thing called customer retention.
The 3rd floor was nice, great internet, and has a
Ocean view. It has even better breezes as well and has air conditioning but you won't need it at all.
The garden apt. was the perfect place for me & my friend to stay! The host was helpful & prompt with checking-in & any requests we had. It was perfectly located in the central of San Juan so it was walking distance to everything we needed! The view from the top terrace was amazing! I would definitely recommend this apartment to any friends visiting the area!
Perfect location, walking distance to the beach and anything in town! Comfortable place, with all the amenities you need including a kitchen and A/C :)
My sister and I just spent 4 days in San Juan Del Sur and stayed in the garden apartment at La Terraza. We could not have asked for a better little place to have stayed. The place was clean and was in the perfect (email hidden)ar all the good restaurants, stores and the market but far enough away from the nightlife along the beach to enjoy a nice peaceful sleep. We also lucked out with air conditioning in our room which was a treat on our travels. And I can't forget to mention the beautiful rooftop terrace! The view was spectacular and it was a cool place to enjoy the sunset while having a cocktail before heading out on the town:)
Katie was a great host and she saw us in and out of our stay. She was friendly and energetic and was eager to help us when we incidentally got ourselves locked out of the building for a short period of time. Overall our stay was amazing and I would recommend staying here if you are travelling through town!
The location of this apartment is great! Most everything is within walking distance. I didnt spend much time in it other than to sleep but the kitchen is great for those looking to cook a meal. Close to markets and beach. And the view from the upstairs Terraza was amazing. Fantastic water pressure in the shower at just the right temperature. If you are looking for a simple apartment to rest your head, this is it!
I stayed in La Terraza for 5 days. Loved it! As everyone else has stated, the location is perfect! You're close to everything, the super market is small but less then a 2 minute walk. If you fancy some yoga, there is Zen Yoga just around the back of the building. It's perfect.
The first floor apartment is great if you're looking for something simple. A well equipped kitchen, double bedroom with AC and a room with bunk bed, which we didn't use.
There are a number of laundrettes right on the street, but I believe that Katie does offer a laundry service.
Wifi was a little up and down while we were there, but we were on holiday! So who cares!
The shower has good pressure and nice hot water.
There were a couple of times that the electricity went out, but the fuse box is right in the hall so we were happy to do it ourselves.
Katie also sent a driver to the airport for us when we arrived.
Overall we really enjoyed out stay. San Juan is the perfect place to kick back and relax, and Terraza was a great place to do it.

About the Host, Katie, Jorge & Alejandro
Hi, I'm Katie. I first came to Nicaragua as a volunteer teacher in 2005. I fell in love with the community of San Juan del Sur and have since spent my time teaching and getting involved in community projects. I met my husband, a Nicaraguan chef in 2007 and we now live on a beach with our beautiful son 1 hour north of San Juan where we also run a restaurant.
