We had a great
week here at Two Brothers Surf Resort. We loved this unspoiled
land of Nicaragua. We found the local people to be friendly
and simple, always ready to smile or return a friendly wave as we
bounced by them on the dusty roads. Each day we took hundreds
of photos of the natural beauty of the area:
- hiking the stream bed north of the property
- exploring the tide-pools and sea caves
- seeing literally thousands of sea turtles come ashore
to lay their eggs at low tide under the light of the full moon
- hiking and exploring the salt flats and rivers edge
where it meets the break at Popoyo
- walking miles and miles of unihabited beach
- reading and watching the beautiful sunsets by the
This has been a week full of adventure and experiences!

My family and I have enjoyed our stay here. First
of all, our villa felt like home – very comfy and we had everything
we needed for such a long stay. Second, being able to surf
Playgrounds and Popoyo with no crowds (somedays even empty) was a

Thanks for a wonderful time here in Nicaragua! The
view is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Next time I come
back, I know exactly where I will be staying…

"Ten days were not enough…
We leave without physical strength but full of memories that will
hunt us to come back. The vibe in this place and the wisdom you
shared made this an unforgettable surf trip. Thank you all again
for welcoming us in your house not only as hotel guests but also
as your friends. Cheers and see you guys soon!
The crew from Venezuela, August 2008
For us being from Belgium and Chile respectively, Nicaragua
is an exotic country. Within the Nicaraguan context, Two Brothers
itself can be considered exotic: “Exotic within the exotic.” However,
a perfect blend: stylishly designed within a beautiful natural context:
the sea views, the little valley behind… a refreshing dip
in the pool at eye-level with the “zoplilotes” or vultures
soaring around, the screaming of flocks of parrots breaking the silence
at sunset. We love this place!
Patrick and Karla, August 2008
I truly have never had such an experience quite like
this…I do know that this is the first of many trip back to
Nicaragua and to Two Brothers! Thayer Behmke, August 2008
A perfect 10 day vacation…This was the most
beautiful place to stay. No words for this place, but the best time
of my life and plan to be back on a regular basis. Thanks for the
life changing experience. It was unbelievable. The surf was good,
the view was beautiful, but the people made the trip!
Joe, Patrick and Dave, July 3008
Where to start…What an amazing trip! We each
came away from this family vacation with such amazing stories, such
personal growth…Thank you for sharing your amazing oasis with
Amy, John and Griffin, June 2008
Thanks for the IRIE VIBES on the mountain top. Everything
was great. I loved the beautiful views, swimming in the pool, the
cookouts, the surf truck, boats trips and sharing waves and laughs…
Greg Stinson, June 2008
I had the time of my life - loved surfing with the
groms - it made the trip.
See you next year. Billy, June 2008
Even though our motorcycle gave up half way up the
hill, we are so glad that we continued the walk up and fell upon
this little paradise, not only for the majestic Gaudi- like environment,
but because meeting you both has struck a deep cord within our souls…
Igor and Vanessa, June 2008
We most definitely enjoyed ourselves thanks to our
awesome accommodations and your wonderful family! This trip will
surely be a topic of discussion for the rest of our lives – and
it we most likely be followed by a sequel since it doesn’t
really feel like we are leaving for good. Thanks again for everything – it
was a pleasure to share your sanctuary!
Traci, June 2008
Thank ya’ll so much for hosting such a fantastic
trip! I had such a great time chatting, surfing, doing yoga, spending
time in your outrageous pool and enjoying your stellar art and architecture…This
was definitely one of the most fun surf trips ever.
Kelly and Sean, June 2008
Stumbling upon your hilltop spot was the best possible
end to our trip. Thank you so much for your hospitality, our favorite
pool in the world, and tremendous view! We feel like we’ve
been old friends visiting your beautiful home. We will be back!
Carrie O’ Neil and Tim O’Brien, May 2008
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated your
hospitality. After three trips to Nica, this has been by far, the
best accommodation thus far. It was a pleasure getting to know ya’ll
and hanging out with the boys (our guides!). We look forward to returning
Doug Garwood, May 2008
Thank you so much for your hospitality – you
have created a wonderful place in this beautiful country and I am
so blessed to have been part of it for these few days. All of you
are wonderful people, I am grateful that you came in to my life!

A Haiku poem by Geoff, Holli and Kugo
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality! The time has come to leave
and it is hard to motivate. It was great to not only get to know
the Gregory clan, but also the other travelers who passed through…
Geoff, May 2008
Wow! Nicaragua Gregory style…An amazing place
you have here… “It’s not what you take when you
leave this world behind you, it’s what you leave behind you
when you go!!”
Ryan Kuja, May 2008
Oh my goodness! Words cannot even begin to explain
the magnitude of a good time that I experienced here at Two Brothers.
Learning to surf was definitely the highlight of my adventure. I
am definitely hooked! I cannot wait to return…You guys really
do have a paradise here. Much respect for your endeavors on the hill
and thank you for all your kindness, great hospitality, and loads
of fun in the sun. I am going to miss this place and its wonderful
Holli, May 2008
Thank you very much for an extremely nice “three
day hang out”…but we wouldn’t mind staying more…and
we hope to come back or better say we “have to come back!” Sitting
by the pool watching the sunset we found “our hill”!
Who knows, you might have Swedish neighbors in the future.
Melin and Per, May 2008
Word cannot begin to express my gratitude for the hospitality,
friendship and care you all extended to us. Sitting on the porch,
the wind doing its best to keep us cool, looking out over Popoyo
and listening to the irie mix of tunes coming in from next door.
The temporary home to our new French friends from San Francisco – writing
this note carries a bittersweet resonance. Tomorrow we leave, but
my mind drifts off to all that we enjoyed here: Boat trips to Dairy
Queens, living a Corona commercial by the pool at sunset, surfing
with the boys at the Beach Break and snorkeling at the tide pools,
buying fish at the Astriello fish market, riding Modoc and Pablo,
pizza a Rana Roja, fresh caught tuna – all held together with
rum, cerveza, and plenty of reading and relaxing…
Pete Weiland, April 2008
It’s hard to say how much I enjoyed and needed
exactly what you have here. Words just won’t do it. I am done
searching around for paradise. I will be back over and over again.
I have already got the OK to be back in November, except this time
with the whole family. May your days be filled with fun, surf and
peace! I caught some great waves and dream of more!
Mike Edwards, April 2008
Words cannot express this place. You are in paradise
and living a dream I hope to share with you someday… Good
luck and continued success and most of all – charge large!
Rodney, April 2008
Unreal place, unreal waves, unreal experience! We’ll
be back no doubt…
Hunter, March 2008
This is one of the best experiences of my life! I
have never found so many quality waves within such a close radius
and its all because of your guidance. I think I speak for all
of us when I say this is one of the “best surf trips of my
life!” You’ll be seeing all of us again in due
time! Can’t wait to come back for the sick waves.
Matt Warsaw, March 2008
Finding Two Brothers was a dream come true! This
place is unreal and helps me fully connect with the things in my
life that make me the happiest. I will never forget our session
on the Outer Reef – one wave was all it took. Thanks
for the knowledge and wisdom of someone who has it all figured out. You
can bet that you will see me again. Maybe next time I’ll
get a better wave than you at the Outer Reef. Muchas Gracias!
Ryan Hixon, March 2008
Most EPIC! Your place is amazing. Thanks
for showing us a good time from the boat trips to Popoyo & Lance’s
left – it’s all good! We appreciate the hospitality
and good stories. You have a good thing going here and hopefully
I’ll be back sometime soon!
Mark, March 2008
All I can say is wow. This is exactly what a
surf trip should be…dirt roads, big waves, and great accommodations. I
hope I can come back here sometime and surf the waves, and check
out how Two Brothers Surf Resort is coming along!
Jarrett, March 2008
Ya Rob, thanks for showing us the ropes and letting
us stay in your sick villas. You gotta great thing going here
and I love it all. BEST SURF TRIP EVER!
Dom, March 2008
You showed me a killer time this week- Popoyo, Santana,
Colorado, Dairy Queens were all awesome waves. You know this
place well and I could not have asked for a better person to stay
with. Your place is amazing and I can’t wait to come
back! Peace man!
Pat, March 2008
What a week it has been…from the surf to the
stories. Great times. Your advice and companionship
made it…You have built an amazing place. Keep it real!
Mac, March 2008
Thanks for the wonderful time you have given us. My
family enjoyed this place so much that we are planning to come back. It’s
so relaxing and our kids loved your swimming pool very much. This
place is very special, the view, the sunset, the privacy…
Ivan Malespin, Managua, March 2008
…The Resort is beautiful and I would recommend
it to any surfers that are looking for a stay close to great waves
in beautiful accommodations.
Steve May, March 2008
First time to Nicaragua…This place is amazing. I need
more time. Surfed Popoyo twice and Lances twice – amazing
waves. I will be back ASAP. This beats the snow in Utah
anytime. Thanks for everything!
