Description

Valley top retreat, private and tranquil views of tree tops and ocean view, with CR in the far distance across the Ocean. Clean and pure living, great for the soul and body :)
Monkeys and birds are just below you in the jungle canopy

An eco friendly off the grid Vacation/surf rental. Amazing retreat pad, killer view, infinity pool. Yoga/chill deck, View of the valley and Ocean as well as Costa Rica across the ocean in the distance. 10 Minute walk to the beach through the river valley and jungle with the monkeys and birds. 3 surf breaks, Colorado's, Ponga Drops and the closest but rocky right hander Los Paros. Beach break on the whole beach. You can rent surf boards at the shop next the golf Pro shop.
Open plan house with 3 walls. Super private at the top of La Vista [last house]
Sun rises across the valley early but bamboo blinds keep most of the light out and the house is in the shade from 10am on. An early surf or swim is a great way to start the day, and mid morning breakfast and a nap in the hammock with your favorite person or the illusive cat house cat.

Kitchen is fully set, blender, toaster, stove top espresso pot, gas stove and fridge. Freezer makes ice and can hold 5 days of frozen meat and a water dispenser.

Not many rules, just no sand in the pool or shower, no cigarette butts anywhere and composting is crucial to keep waste clean and minimal.........
Biodegradable soaps and dish liquids are preferred.

There is also a 4 day minimum.

Hope this provides enough info, if you need more please ask.
Thanks,
Jeff

full use of the house

I interact a fair amount to make sure they get what are expecting and what they will need for there trip.

Very quiet get away.......neighbours are not close. 8 houses on the drive up, but none with in 200 meters. There are 3 restaurants with in the 20 minutes for the place, one at the beach which is 5 minutes drive and a few out on the road. And a few in Iguante. We can also organize a fishing or surfing boat trip as well as horse back rides and Surf board rentals at NSR. You can also rent motorbikes at NSR

Casa Fresca is approx 2.5 to 3 hour drive from Managua. The last 2 towns along the way are Rivas and Tola. Rivas is the last suggested supply stop if you where not lucky enough to get it done in Grenada which is recommended. There is minimal shopping in Tola, but a good fruit and veggie stand at the park on your way by. From Tola, you will head west towards the beach and follow signs for Iguana Beach which is approx 35 minutes. La Vista does have signs but it is inside the Iguana gate. Once inside the Iguana gate, La Vista will be on your right. Follow the road to the dense wooded area and cross the river. Casa Fresca will be at the top of the hill and the last house in the valley. Jose is the care taker and does not speak english. Zack is a friend and boat captain and tour guide that can help with anything you need and speaks English well.You will need a car if you plan of exploring the coastal towns, but walking is just fine locally to the beach etc.....

CONSERVE WATER AND USE BIO SOAP PLEASE :)

I am a pro sailor and athlete. Travel the world extensively and found Nicaragua to be just the right amount of everything to fit my lifestyle. I like my peace and quiet away from the city, and the craziness of city life. Solitude is a must in our crazy lives
