About Tamara Philip

We live in the Pacific Northwest and love it...except the long wet and cold winters get very long, wet and cold. We were thinking about eventually finding a place to escape the winter weather when Casa de Sol found us! Even though this idea was 10 years off, we knew we would never find a place like Casa de Sol.

Since we are both still working and have a young family we decided to offer it as a vacation rental for now and eventually make it our 3-6 month home.

Tamara Philip purchased this house in 2005

Why Tamara Philip chose Nicaragua

What makes this house unique

Solitude, incredible views, natural beauty, accommodates a large group of friends and family.

Idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of five family members (adults) stayed her in March for 10 days. We couldn't have asked for more comfortable, gorgeous house to base ourselves in. The private infinity pool was amazing, we spent many hours relaxing in it or the adjoining covered patio - the hammocks were great. The staff were very efficient, non-intrusive and sweet. It was very windy most of the time we were there, and we didn't notice any mosquitoes at all - just little gnats that would come in the windows at night if the light was left on. The A/C in the bedrooms was wonderful at night. One caveat - I would not be comfortable having small children here, there were drop offs and many places they could fall from. But for adults and older kids, it was so much fun!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Sol was definitely even better than the pictures. The house staff was ever-present and always accommodating. The owner Tamara was very responsive and took special care to have the house set up perfectly for our group. This is probably the most well taken care of I've ever been during a vacation. I can't recommend this place enough.

Incredible Home and People. Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this incredible home at Laguna de Apoyo from Jan 20-22, 2017 and everything was fabulous. The house is very well maintained and super clean. The people working at the house were very friendly, accommodating and provided excellent customer service. Communication with owner (Tamara) was prompt and pleasant. I would highly recommend Casa del Sol to anyone interested. I will certainly come back and stay at this beautiful home again. Thanks so much for everything,

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that Tamara goes above and beyond. The home is perfect and just as beautiful and scenic, or even more beautiful, than the photos! I went with my family last week and we have 2 children, a 1yr old and 3 yr old. Tamara went out of her way to get us a high chair and crib!!! She really is so helpful and just beyond amazing!

I loved that there were 2 kayaks and pool toys and life jackets. Carlos and the cook and staff are always on site. For an extra charge you can get a cook and laundry service. Only cons I would say is that to run AC all day is a small fee, we needed more towels for pool and showering and our small car struggled up the driveway, which we were warned beforehand so get 4w or park up on top.

My other regret is not staying at the home my entire stay! Just amazing and breath taking and centrally located. I will surely stay again!!!

Magical House on Laguna de Apoyo

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Sol is a hidden gem in Laguna de Apoyo. The house is nestled above the shore of the lake with breathtaking panoramic views of the lake and surrounding rainforest. Relax in the gorgeous infinity pool or in one of the nearby hammocks for a peaceful day of relaxation. Words cannot describe the view and the immaculate grounds surrounding this home.

Our family of four (our kids are 10 and 12 years old) stayed at Casa Del Sol and I would definitely recommend this house for any family looking for a peaceful getaway. We all enjoyed hearing and seeing the family of howler monkeys that lived in the trees outside the master bedroom windows. We looked forward to sunrise swimming in the hot springs every morning while listening to the birds and monkeys nearby.

The owner, Tamara was so responsive and offered lots of advice on things to do in Nicaragua. Don't miss the chocolate making class in Granada....so fun! Her staff made sure we were well taken care of. Carlos handled any questions we had and made reservations for our activities. He organized a cook for our meals which was fantastic.

There are so many activities to enjoy in Nicaragua. We highly recommend going to the Masaya volcano at night....once in a lifetime experience! Maykel was our driver/tour guide for the week. He was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and just a fun guy. Contact him for all of your transportation/tours at maykel142687@gmail.com

Nelly the housekeeper and the rest of the staff kept Casa del Sol sparkling clean throughout our entire stay.

Look no further....book this home for your next trip to Laguna de Apoyo. You will be so happy you did!
