Where you’ll be

Playa Maderas, Rivas, Nicaragua

We are just a three-minute-walk away from Playa Maderas, the best surfing beach near San Juan del Sur.

Playa Maderas is a small community. On a regular base events are organised. Ask us about it and we will let you know what is happening during your stay.

Keep in mind that we are on top of a unpaved steep hill. 4x4 transportation is a must!

Originally from Amsterdam, but I have been living in Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur since 2004. Together with my partner, I designed, built and ran Buena Vista Surf Club, a small ecolodge on the pacific coast of Nicaragua. We sold the hotel to free up more time so we can focus more on new building- and design projects. Being creative is what I love to do: I design clothes for my kids and I make most of the home decor for our accommodations. We have put a lot of love and thought into our rentals; we want our guests to have a great (holiday) experience in our accommodations. I like to add little details to them so people feel right at home. We always try to be there when guests arrive to welcome them or at least stop by for a chat. And we are always available to answer questions (by message or in person).
