About Mar y Estrellas

The houses of Quinta Mar y Estrellas are designed to provide all the comfort of high-end accommodation in a natural unspoiled setting, using sustainable energy sources such as solar panel electrical systems and solar hot water heating.

The airy kitchens are fully functional and open onto the living areas. They include refrigerator-freezer and gas range, as well as a clothes washer in the Main house. Dishes and linens for up to 11 people.

Discover the unspoiled beauty of Nicaragua's Pacific coast, unwind and enjoy life at a slower pace, and practice your Spanish with the locals.

The dining area in the Main house is a large screened-in patio made entirely of exotic hardwoods with a beautiful cathedral ceiling handmade of sugar cane. The large refectory dining table is handmade from antique recycled woods.

All of the furniture at Quinta Mar y Estrellas is made by local artisans. In the living room of the Main house, a small library helps guests learn more about the tumultuous history of Nicaragua. Hammocks and beach chairs are readily available for reading, napping and other such strenuous activities! A gas barbecue is available in the Main house for outdoor grilling.

The Guest house bedrooms share a large separate main living room with full kitchen and dining area, opening onto an outdoor terrace with a private dipping pool under a shady rancho. The upper terrace of the Guest house and the rancho (palapa) of the Main house are ideal spots for magnificent sunset viewing during the cocktail hour!
