“Elisha MacKay, vacation concierge at your service!”

After two years of retirement I’ve officially re-joined the work force. Well…sort of.

When our friends Suze and Doug aren’t in Nicaragua enjoying a cold Tona or a smooth Flor de Caña at their vacation home – Casa Culebra – they delight in sharing it with tourists, travellers, wanna-be-expats and adventure seekers like you.

Something that’s very unique about Suze and Doug’s vacation home is the complimentary concierge service they provide for their guests.

This is where I come in.

As vacation concierge it is my responsibility to ensure guests of Casa Culebra have the best Nicaraguan vacation experience possible.

A couple of weeks before guests arrive in town I send them an introductory email letting them know I will be available before and during their stay to assist with all of their vacation needs.

I help with airport transfers, rental car reservations and grocery shopping. I provide recommendations on where to eat and drink. I also assist with activity planning and reservations for excursions.

You name it, I’m on it!

Perched high on the hill in the jungle, with a view of the ocean, just minutes from three beautiful beaches Suze and Doug’s home is really quite spectacular. 

With two king size master suites it is ideal for honeymooners, one or two couples or a family of four. 

Casa Culebra is located just 20 minutes outside of San Juan del Sur in the development of Balcones de Majagual. Balcones de Majagual was designed by the British architect Matthew Falkiner. Matthew also designed the very exclusive eco-lodge – Morgan’s Rock – which is located just around the corner on a neighbouring hillside.

Just down the hill from Casa Culebra you’ll find the stunning and pristine beach of Majagual.

And just around the corner is the ever popular surf beach of Playa Maderas.

It’s often difficult to leave the tranquility of Suze and Doug’s luxury jungle home, only to return to my “Nica-chic” casa where the dogs and the roosters roam, but unfortunately staying overnight with the guests doesn’t fall under the category of “other duties as required”.

Casa Culebra is a beautiful home located in one of the most beautiful areas in Nicaragua. 

If you want to experience an absolutely amazing, stress free Nicaraguan vacation choose Casa Culebra. Tell Suze I sent you. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

    You go, girl!!
    I used to do that on Adventures by Char website while living on Kauai, HI!! It is great fun pleasing the guests!

  2. Congratulations on finding the niche. I did that in the Caribbean with a locksmith company and now with our hotel and other properties in Granada. Best wishes and if I can be of assistance let me know.

    Elisha – do only provide your services for people who are renting this house (which looks amazing)? Have not been yet to Nicaragua yet but it is on own list and would be nice to have the services of someone in the know.

    • Hi Debbie,

      The house really is amazing. I had the pleasure of spending a couple of nights there recently and loved it!

      Playa Majagual is my new favourite beach.

      Currently I’m only doing concierge for guests of Casa Culebra, however providing service to others has been something I’ve been thinking about for awhile. Fees would be based on length of stay and services required.

      If you’re interested I’d be happy to discuss further offline. Please feel free to send me an email at elisha_in_nica@hotmail.com.

        Thanks Elisha – This country keeps popping up on my radar (looking for a place to retire) and I should be visiting within the next year so I’ll keep watching your posts and bug you a little once I know I am on my way!! Thanks again.

  4. We stayed there and Elisha was our “hostess”. It was great!! Beautiful place and I could totally see living in that house forever.

  5. Excited about upcoming trip to Nica and stay at Casa Culebra!

  6. What a gorgeous house and location. Having already benefited from your enthusiastic love of life and people, I know your guests will be able to relax and feel right at home.
