Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great location close to everything and Luisa the maid is really nice and helpful.

    February 2014
  • Thanks to Sarah and Baldo for a nice couple of days. Our room was small, simple, and satisfying. They gave good recommendations for what to do, I took a lesson from Baldo, all good. A nice launching point for a day or two in SJdS.

    June 2012
  • Good location, friendly hosts.

    May 2012
  • Great place, relaxing atmosphere, great hosts! Baldo & Sarah were very accomidating, even had a secure lock-up for our truck so we didn't have to leave it parked in the street. They had great advise/inside scoop on places to eat, surf, shop, etc. I would love to stay here again next time I'm in town.

    August 2013
  • Sarah and Baldovino were really friendly and helped us around with tips and even discount coupons for restaurantes. The place had good air conditioning and there was good security for our motorcycles in the garage. The house is in a very centric place, near everything. Great place to stay.

    March 2013
  • Casa Airki provided exactly what we were looking for for our last night in San Juan Del Sur. Its a very reasonable rate for a great location in town, round the corner from a great pizza joint. The Air Conditioning worked well, and the wifi was the best we'd experienced in our week in Nicaragua. Room was small and clean. Hosts very helpful and friendly. When we left, they arranged for a taxi to pick us up upon our arrival in the Huembes bus station in Managua

    January 2013
  • Casa Ariki es un lugar muy agradable sin lujo, sencillo y limpio. La casa es grande con un vigilante muy sympatico y ayudante. Segun mi punto de vista es un poco caro para lo que tenemos.
