About Matthew Clouser

I love adventure and living life to the fullest. I also like business and having fun at work. Combining both, my family and I decided to build a great vacation home in Nicaragua for all of us to enjoy. My 10 yr old son, wife and I visit frequently and we have put many personal touches into this home. We hope that you choose to enjoy this great house we have designed and created for all of us to experience. Here is to our great adventures!

Matthew Clouser purchased this house in 2014

Why Matthew Clouser chose Playa Hermosa

Nicaragua is a beautiful country with amazing nature and actives to enjoy. We had this house constructed in an area that is private, secure and family friendly. Close to town, restaurants and nightlife.

What makes this house unique

300deg Ocean Views, Modern Design, onsite Laundry, onsite caretaker, daily cleaning service.

We provide you with a local telephone that can be used onsite during your stay. It can be used to call local or international numbers. You are allowed 5 minutes of free international calling and unlimited local calling during your stay. We are not responsible if the telephone has trouble connecting internationally.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Matt,

We enjoyed Casa Bahia Azul for our honeymoon. I was not disappointed in anything about the house. It was exactly as it was advertised and listed on the site. We spent every day on property and at the beach and never left. Alfonzo and his wife were very nice to went o get us things when we needed them. It was truly the private, romantic retreat we were looking for.

The pros and cons from April 2015

  • 4 of 5

Pros first: Great house, phenomenal views, includes GOOD surfboards that are WAY better than you can rent, awesome soaking pool, close to the beach yet secluded and private, easy to find, cool surf spot for all levels, super fun dirt roads for access (rent a 4WD), and overall incredibly relaxing.

Cons: From the moment we arrived until we left, we never really got the warm and fuzzy from the "care" taker, Alfonso. It was almost as if he didn't know we were coming or didn't want us to be there. It certainly wasn't from our lack of effort. We spoke only Spanish with him, tried our best to engage, but he just didn't seem to care. I think Matt will have a talk with him, so this is definitely fixable. Any sort of tour/orientation would have been helpful.

The location atop a hill makes for great views, but it's a tough walk up and down to the beach, even for my wife and me (both avid runners). We all managed, including 9 and 6 year old girls, but know that it's a REALLY steep hill both ways. Admittedly, by the end of the trip, the last couple times to the beach were in the truck we rented from Alamo in town.

The restaurants on the beach are much further than 100 meters as stated in the photos. In fact, according to my running watch, it's about 0.45 miles from the house down the dirt road, along the beach to the two restaurants. From the sand to the house is 0.2 miles, which is about 300 meters.

Power is a real issue in Nicaragua, and without power, you also have no water because it is delivered through a pump. Not a big deal when you know it's coming, but it can hit you by surprise after a good run or a long day on the beach. Along with that comes the Wifi. Over the 8 days/nights, we had it about half the time. Not the end of the world, but if you need to be in touch with home, it can be a drag. There is a generator, but it requires the caretaker to have already purchased fuel (hint).

Overall, this is a pretty good value and we recommend it. You just need to go in with your eyes wide open. Matt is a great owner and was very responsive before, during and after our trip. We thank him for having us.

Owner's Response: Hello Ron and Erin Thank you for your review and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Bahia Azul and that you gave us a 4 Star rating. You got to experience all of the great features of our home and used all of the toys that we have included complimentary for our guests. Its an Amazing house with a lot of extras other rentals do not include and you know now why we selected Remanso to build our home. Thank you for the information regarding the care taker. This was surprising to hear as he has been reviewed below by other guests as an awesome person and has always been very helpful and well liked. We have replaced him and hired a new caretaker for the house. Thank you for letting us know about this. As you are aware power in all of Nicaragua can be in and out at times. We have the backup generator (when fueled) to make sure there is always power at the house. Also we are installing a solar panel system this summer which will eliminate this concern fully. The walk to the beach and hills up and down are walkable for sure but some chose to take their car or SUV to the beach so they can bring boards, chairs and other beach stuff down to the beach. The amazing views of the bay, steady breezes, relaxing in the pool and amazing sunsets make being on top of the hill well worth the 5 minutes walking to the beach. Thank you for your stay with us and feedback. We are always looking how to improve our offerings, the house and overall guest experience so we can continue to meet our guests expectations and bring this amazing location to others around the world! Gracias! Matt- Owner Casa Bahia Azul

Got very lucky with Casa Bahia Azul

  • 5 of 5

When traveling with friends to San Juan Del Sur, I found out that the original house I had rented had been accidentally double booked and that I was out of a house the day of my arrival. Fortunately I got ahold of Matt and the dates that I needed were available last minute. The house was on the beach I had wanted (Ramanso) and it was perched at the top of the hill overlooking both Playa Ramanso and Playa Hermosa so I could check the surf at both spots from the pool deck. The house was very sunny and inviting with a great master bed and bath, lots of light, AC and a great kitchen. Tons of extras were included which we made great use of. The phone, walkie talkies, and surfboards were used every day and saved us a bunch of money. In my original booking of the other place I had decided not to go with a pool as the ocean is right there. Once at Bahia Azul, the pool was a fantastic addition and I won't go without one from here on. Floating on the floaty chair in the infinity pool at night looking at the stars and boats on the ocean was the perfect end to many great days.

Awesome Family Vacation, Surf, Fun, Sun

  • 5 of 5

Our family (5 in total) wanted an adventure travel destination so we choose Nicaragua. Casa Bahia Azul was awesome! Talk about a million dollar view and breathtaking sunsets, WOW! Our kids ages 9yrs, 12yrs and 14yrs had a blast! The house was very nice and has a modern design. Everything was well maintained and the beds were surprisingly comfortable. (I am kind of picky on beds). The house also came with three surfboards, snorkeling equipment and mountain bikes complimentary. We used these items almost every day. There are lots of hills around so if you take off down the mountain on the bike make sure your ready for the ride back up. The pool was great and we played in it allot. Make sure you ask the caretaker to give you the raft. Floating in the pool and watching the sunset is priceless! We rented a 4x4 in San Juan and went to town for a few dinners and also explored a few of the other surrounding beaches. There are son many hidden jewels in the area, we will be back again to explore the area more. The house was centrally located and private. We liked going to town but also liked going back to the house and its quiet atmosphere. The caretaker Alfonzo and his wife were very friendly. They don't speak english though. I was able to communicate using sign language and a little Spanish i learned in High school. His wife cooked for us two nights. I wouldn't say she is a chef but she did cook well and it was nice to have them there taking care of us. The power and internet went out a few times but as we talked to people around town, this seems to happen everywhere in Nicaragua. I would bring a flashlight when you come. We booked a few excursions with San Juan del Sur Surf and Sport and the owner Dario was a really cool guy and made us feel very taken care of for sure. I recommend the fishing trip. We caught 15 fish the day we went out! All in all we loved our stay at Casa Bahia Azul and would recommend it to anyone. We will be sure to stay there again we we return to Nicaragua.

Owner's Response: Hey Frank Thanks for the review! Glad you guys enjoyed you stay in Casa Bahia Azul and in Nicaragua. It sounds like you and your family experienced all the great things the house and San Juan has to offer. We just started English classes for the caretaker and his wife, although I know Spanglish and charades is a fun game! We try to give back to the local community and give them education, work and responsibility. Him and his wife are good people and we love them too. We hope to see you back soon! Thank you again for your stay at Casa Bahia Azul.

Perfect place to unwind and spend time with family

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bahia Azul was the perfect place to unwind and spend time with our family over the holidays. The views are even better in person. My 15 YO daughter even commented that the house was the perfect place to relax after her semester exams. We didn't turn the tv on once and everyone in our family, including our two teenagers, read at least 4 books during our 10 day stay. I also can't count how many card games we played as a family. I enjoyed us being together as a family and I think this trip brought us all closer together.

If you want to spend some quality time with your family and unwind yourself, Casa Bahia Azul is the place to do it!

Great place to unwind with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (including 2 teenagers) rented Casa Bahia Azul over the Christmas holidays for 10 days. The house is located in Playa Remanso, a short 15 minute drive to San Juan del Sur. Although definitely walkable, the house is located way up in the hills (hence the fabulous views) and it is quite a trek back up to the house from the beach. We mostly drove to the beach. This would be a must in my opinion if you have surfboards or a lot of other beach gear with you. Similarly, since you can't walk to town, I highly recommend renting a four wheel drive vehicle for your stay.

The caretakers, Alfonso & Kaylynn, were very friendly and accomodating. We had Kaylynn cook several breakfasts and dinners for us over during our visit. Be forewarned, however, that they do not speak English so brush up on your Spanish (which you should be doing anyway coming to Nicaragua).

The house itself is an open layout 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath place. The 3rd bedroom is a loft accessed by ladder through the 2nd bedroom. The loft overlooks the main living area and has a low wall with no railing. Because of the loft setup, I do not think this house is suitable for a family with young children.

The house is set high on a hill and when we visited, the winds were very strong. This probably contributed to the intermittent power outages at the house. When the power goes out, so does the wifi which could take several hours to reboot again once power is restored. The water also goes out periodically. I'm sure these are issues no matter where you rent in Nicaragua. Just have realistic expectations when you visit.

Floating in the infinity pool is very relaxing. It is a plunge pool rather than a full-sized pool, however.

Two friendly suggestions I have for the house is more comfortable seating in the main living area & some shelves or dressers in the bedrooms for our clothes. As it was, we were living out of suitcases.

Overall, we loved our time at Casa Bahia Azul and that's why I'm giving this house a 5 Star rating.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great Review Kristen! We are happy that you gave us a 5 Star rating and enjoyed your stay with us! We are adding dressers and they are being hand made as we speak. As you experienced, nothing there moves very fast down there so we plan to have them soon. The pool is very relaxing and many of our guests enjoy it as you did and feel its the perfect size for the house. We do recommend a 4x4 for all renters for all of the reasons that you listed below. However, if you are in good shape, the walk from the beach is not too bad. Many of our guests do not get cars and walk to and from the beach daily. The stroll up to the house is actually a nice way to end the day and see an amazing sunset! Thanks again and we look forward to your next stay with us!
