Mike and Miranda were superb hosts and great company, the best we’ve stayed with on AirBnb (so good we stayed with them on our last nights). The farm is just south of Managua, out of the heat of the city and overlooks the Volcano Masaya. Upon arrival we were generously upgraded to their larger apartment which was was spacious and really well kitted out (all rooms are amazing). Breakfast was hearty with fresh fruit from their farm garden. The home-roasted coffee is a real treat. They were also incredibly helpful in terms of local information and giving us lifts to bus and taxi points so we could start our day. Incredible value for money given the room and the overall experience and service. (Mike also has a fascinating family history). Muchos gracias por todo Mike y Miranda!

Well well, what a sweet review (*blushing*). These two, Chris and Lisa, were pretty wonderful guests! Thank you guys for the nice review, we really appreciate it!
It is so nice when we have return visitors, when they come back to us before they go back home it is so interesting to hear where they went and what they did when there. These two took some real adventures, well beyond the usual triangle of Granada, Ometepe, and San Juan del Sur.
Return visitors are great too in that we know each other already, they know what to expect, how to get around in our area, etc. so it is really more like greeting friends returning from a trip somewhere then anything else. We do pride ourselves on the number of return visitors we get.
If I recall correctly, Lisa and Chris went to San Carlos, all the way down the Rio San Juan de Nicaragua, spent the night with a Rama family in the jungle, etc. all quite the true adventurers! All without hardly any Spanish as well. Most impressive indeed!
