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 Nicaragua

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.

ONE WORD - AMAZING !

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a location - Our Family stayed at this property in July and had an amazing time. Our 10 year old daughter was able to take pictures of her 9 year old brother surfing on Romanso beach below from the pool deck which was very cool. The pictures of this property are amazing however, in reality it is even better. If you are looking for a place to stay with the "WOW FACTOR" Casa Bahia Azul has it in abundance.

The home has everything that you need and the caretaker and his wife who live next door in the casita are very helpful. The fact that this spectacular home is not only on one of the best surf beaches in the area especially for beginners and advanced surfers) and only minuets from the town of San Juan Del Sur and the beaches north and south of town, make it the perfect location. Thanks Matt for allowing our family to stay at your spectacular property, we will return soon.

Sincerely

The Craig Family (July 2016)

Amazing View! Perfect Relaxing Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First, I have to say the view is one of the most amazing you will see! Staying at Casa Bahia Azul is like staying in a little piece of Paradise. I haven't even left Nicaragua yet and all I can think about is when I can come back to the casa. Woke up every morning to yoga on the pool deck with an ocean view to die for while listening to my yoga playlist that played over the speakers in the casa (both inside and out) via blu-tooth from my phone; Cooked breakfast in the well appointed kitchen with ingredients we bought at the local Pali on the way in; road the ATVs we rented from the Casa down to the Slaudy Surf Bar where we enjoyed healthy fruit smoothies and watched the guys surf using the boards supplied by Casa Bahia Azul; Watched the sunset floating in the infinity pool on the reclining rafts kept in the closet at the casa; Ate dinner at several delicious restaurants in San Juan del Sur (make sure to try Jicaro Garden Healthy Foods and El Timón); and at night, we played Jenga, which is kept at the casa. The casa was super clean, has every amenity you need, and Marcial, who lives in the casa next door and upkeeps the Casa Bahia Azul is very kind and helpful. I highly recommend!

Wow! What a View!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at then home and were greeted by the caretaker. He was friendly and help to get our luggage into the house. As soon as we stepped foot on the pool deck we were mesmerized by the million dollar view. All I can say is WOW!! The house was clean and in order and we quickly went down to the beach. We surfed all day and used the boards at the house. The girls went into town and good groceries at Pali, the local supermarket. It was kind of a small grocery store but basically had what we needed. The sunsets at Casa Bahia Azul are unbelievable! We all sat in the rocking chairs each night and were amazed. The shower water pressure was a little light and it takes a few minutes to get warm this was no problem and we had a hot shower every night. We would recommend this home and Matt was great and checked on us when we arrived. Make sure to go to San Jaun and eat dinner a few nights, there are a bunch of good restaurants. El Timon, the Yoga place, Vivian to name a few. We would visit again and would stay at Cass Bhaia when we do.

One for the books!

  • 5 of 5

This was probably the best vacation we will have ever had! 5 of my good friends and myself booked Casa Bahia Azul with high hopes and Matthew delivered... and then some! Take advantage of all the information Matthew gives you because it was all very useful.

The view from the house simply cannot be captured in a photo. You have to see it for yourself to understand how perfect it was. We quickly made friends with some of the locals at the bar/restaurant that's right at the bottom of the hill on the beach. (Most of them speak decent English) And they were very serious when they say everyone here is friendly. We didn't have one problem, there was always someone there to help if we needed it and the caretaker was always there for anything we needed. Renting a 4x4 is a must especially if you plan on doing some exploring. The only thing any of us had to complain about was having to leave!

Amazing view with a beautiful infinity pool and great surf!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Bahia Azul for one amazing week. The house was perfect with beautiful views all around the property. The infinity pool was amazing. The surf was firing all week so my boyfriend was able to surf right below the property at Remanso Beach and the secluded beach next to it several times per day. The caretaker was very helpful. The location was great. We rented a 4 x 4 truck so we were able to explore the nearby towns and beaches pretty easily. We even took a day trip to Mombacho Volcano which was also beautiful. It was very easy communicating with the owner. I would definitely recommend renting this beautiful house if you are traveling to Nicaragua. We would stay here again in a heartbeat if and when we make it back to Nicaragua.

The Greatest view on earth.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week with our family and loved the property, returning home from the beach at sunset was always a thrill. The pictures do not do it justice. It was idyllic with the exception of a few minor easily remedied details.

The pool was filthy with algae upon or arrival, that was remedied slowly over the next couple days due our insistence that the filter be run to clear it. The kitchen was very dirty on our arrival, we spent an hour making it, how do I say this, un-distgusting. Dried food stuck to door handles, dishes unwashed, sticky knobs on the stove, grease splatters beside the stove, enough food/crumbs fallen beside the stove to make a whole meal. The house has two towels for four people, luckily we had brought our own. We were given two more after requesting them. Coffee maker in the kitchen doesn`t work. House has no dining area except at the bar. No sink stopper to wash dishes. No oven mitts to remove things from the oven. One dishcloth and one kitchen towel on the whole property. Kitchen very poorly equiped, making dinner requires the mindset of camping and multipurposing everything. (It's both a stock pot to boil the pasta and a salad bowl!) An incessant low-frequency hum emanates from the space under the second bedroom driving occupants insane without earplugs. Bathrooms were dirty with hair and dead bugs in the corners.

A four wheel drive is required to access the property. Get exact GPS lat/long coordinates as it can be tricky to locate the first time. Ten minute drive to town. Above a terrific beach.

Both A/C and Wifi are excellent

In spite of the easily remedied minor deficiencies, I'd wholeheartedly recommend this property to all but the fussiest travellers, it is so lovely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We have contacted our property manager with your comments and asked that they ensure that our high quality standards continue. They had mentioned the maid service had transitioned to a new group and that this was their first cleaning. We will make sure that they are aware of these issues. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans and everything so we are unclear about the cooking in bowl feedback. Thanks again for your stay and we are happy that you enjoyed our wonderful house and that you enjoyed the view, the area and our great home. Matt
