The open air living area creates a relaxing space for travelers to unwind after a long beach day.

The space

This quaint apartment offers ample living area in a cozy setting right in the center of town. The comfortable living area is stocked with books, and games for your relaxation and enjoyment. The living room is open to fresh air and plant life including a complete herb garden with a hammock and swing to enjoy the peacefulness. The inspirations of the herb garden can be put to practice in the complete kitchen. All amenities needed for gourmet cooking are offered in this beautiful well equipped kitchen.

The spacious bathroom offers a shower with strong water pressure, plenty of towel and linen back up and is completed with a spacious bathtub.

The bedroom's double doors open into the living area letting in plenty of natural light and fresh air. Strong fans circulate cooling the room and the apartment throughout. For those hotter nights, the double doors close off the room for a cool, air conditioned sleep.

A private entrance ensures security with double locks and strong deadbolt. Although, stairway to the rooftop terrace is still accessible.

Interaction with guests

I truly love meeting all our guests and getting to know them and their stories. I love sharing my 12 years of experience in this beautiful town to help travelers decide how they'd like to spend their time here and the best ways to get around. I strive to be present for each check in and am generally on site daily. However, with an 8 year old that I home school, a part time job, and family that I miss far away, I can't always be on site during every guests visit. I am always available by email or phone to answer any questions or attend to any emergencies. Grethel does a fantastic job during the day of cleaning and attending to anything that needs taken care of and can always get a hold of me if needed.

Other things to note

We're not a large hotel, and therefore don't have a very large staff. If no one is on site when you are ready to check out, lock up behind you and throw the keys in the first floor window, behind the couch.

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.

Katie's place is an amazing space, perfectly placed in the heart of San Juan del Sur. The rooftop terrace, the open sky on top of the hamack and the AC just make it that much more perfect. Would recommend this to anyone!

Katie was a very good host. She communicated with us promptly and was very flexible in making adjustments to our reservation as well as letting us check in early. She also provided helpful information and tips. Her apartment is centrally located, right next to the church and a playground. My kids loved playing there. It is close to everything: shops, restaurants, beach. The place is as described and shown on pictures.

Katie's place is right in the heart of San Juan Del Sur. You couldn't ask for a better location. The apartment itself was open to the air but the bedroom was closed and air conditioned which was a great relief after a hot day. The rooftop terrace was easily accessible and has a fantastic view, especially at sunset. Katie and her crew were friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

We stayed here for 6 nights and really loved it! The place is exactly like the photos show. The living room opens up to the outdoors but we had no problem with bugs which surprised me. The beds were comfortable, the shower was great with strong pressure, there were lots of towels, it was very clean and the fans and aircon worked well. The kitchen came with a drinking water supply and was extremely well stocked for cooking. The location is perfect, right near the market, food shops and the beach. Katie was very nice to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. Id highly recommend this place!

We had a fantastic time staying here. The photos are completely accurate and we enjoyed the open air nature of the living space (surprisingly bugs weren't an issue and the fan was adequate for heat). The kitchen had everything you'd need, was perfect for cooking for ourselves. The aircon worked well in the bedrooms. He hosts we're lovely!

Katie is very nice and the place is in a good location, however there is no hot water and it is located in a very busy street next to a local church. You will be woken up at 5:30 am with the sound of explosives and fire crackers and the church music is very loud. But if you dont care about the above, then its all good.

Response from Katie, Jorge & Alejandro:
I'm not sure why Ardy chose to stay an extra three nights after his scheduled booking if it was that loud and uncomfortable, but I hope he finds places that better suit his needs in the future.

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.
