The Space

Condo at Farallon- The absolute perfect location right in the heart of San Juan del Sur. This two story, private condo is situated with incredible views of the town and harbor. Our two bedroom plus den, three bathroom home allows you to live minutes from all the best restaurants and shopping in town, with a less than two minute walk to the beach! Enjoy privacy and luxury wiith amenities such as A/C, wi-fi, daily cleaning, fully equipped kitchen, shared pool, secure parking, and on site security.
A private, quiet location to enjoy your dream getaway in Nicaragua. Slide open your walls to let the sea air in, enjoy morning coffee on one of three patio spaces.
Two large en suite bedrooms with A/C, comfortable beds (one queen, one king) and A/C provide a wonderful nights sleep. We can easily convert our media room to accommodate two more guests on our comfy double futon. A main floor bathroom is readily available for this arrangement.
Enjoy cooking up Nicaragua's incredibly fresh and seafood in the fully equipped kitchen, then grill it on the North American style BBQ. Have a leisurely meal with unobstructed views of the San Juan del Sur harbor in the open concept kitchen, where the walls slide open to let the outside in.
Private and secure parking is available for guests with vehicles, though none is required to enjoy the luxuries of Casa Farallon.

  • This place...oh this place. We had it for three nights, but I wish we would have had it for two weeks.

    The pictures are exact, but they don't do the view justice. It is absolutely the best location in SJDS. The condo is located at the highest point in town and looks down on the street action, beach fun, and other exotic intricacies that make SJDS the hoppin' joint it is.

    When there, you have 24/7 security, a housekeeper, and groundskeepers, all of whom are extremely helpful and kind. We wanted for nothing during our stay. Someone was always there to assist us if needed, and Laura was available via phone and email leading up to our vacation. She answered any/all questions I had with a happy tone and a genuine excitement for our upcoming travels.

    The kitchen is awesome.
    The patio/view is Travel Channel worthy.
    This condo is pretty fantastic.

    We loved it. Thank you Laura and Joel. Well done.

  • We had a very pleasant stay at Farallón de Sotavento. Everything was perfect. Beautiful condo, great location, great views, etc.The staff was helpful, especially the security guard named Oscar who washed our truck almost everyday. We really liked our time there.

    Thanks for everything Laura!

  • Absolutely the best location and accommodation in SJDS. Whether you're a family or a group of four guys on a college reunion trip (that's us), Laura and Joel's place is perfectly situated for immediate access to the night life scene, town, and beach. Conversely, the privacy of the place allows one to retreat and relax in the comfort of the quad-plexes modern luxury. Most of the town can be viewed from the porch area of the condo. Security can be strict at times, but for the sake of peace and sanctity of the other residents... Very understandable. Maid service was included. Comfy beds and lux amenities. Would highly recommend this place and stay here again if and when we return to SJDS. Thank you!

  • Farallon was absolutely amazing. My husband and I stayed for a week with another couple and the condo exceeded all expectations. The view is stunning, the condo is spacious and has everything you could need for your stay. The security is 24 hour and the staff extremely friendly. We all felt safe and comfortable the entire time. Laura is incredibly helpful and prompt in returning all emails and offering advice and suggestions. We definitely would recommend and plan to return!

  • My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Farallón de Sotavento. It sits atop a small cliff in the middle of San Juan del Sur providing the fantastic views of the city and Pacific Ocean shown in the photos which, by the way, do no justice to what you will experience if you stay here. The condo has air conditioning, which is a rarity in Nicaragua, but that was not at all needed as the offshore breeze coming down the hills behind SJDS was absolutely perfect in keeping us cool during the hot midday sun (the condo is situated to take advantage of this breeze). The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. SJDS itself has quite a bit to offer, and the condo's central location makes it absurdly easy in getting where you might want to go.

    Lying in the hammock on the second floor porch, enjoying the breeze, the sunset, and a glass of wine should be on the top of your to-do list here. This place is definitely a gem and we highly recommend it.

  • The condo is even better than the pictures! The views and the sunsets are amazing! The condo was right in the middle of SJDS which made it very easy to get around. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The staff speaks very little english but that does not stop them from making you feel welcome. Laura was always available before and during the trip. She always got back to our emails.

    Be prepared for the music that you can hear down the street. We expected this and it was not that bad. There is a rooster that starts at 3:30am which we were not expecting. Lastly there were young kids the majority of the time that we were there. We would not have minded but this was advertised as an adult only condo. Laura and Desiree were unaware of the family being there due to that condo owner not communicating that to them. Otherwise, I know that Laura would have reached out to us before our trip. The situation was rectified to everyones satisfaction. Laura is truly a great host.

    A stunning space with the views to go with it. Just make sure the kids are not there.

  • The photos simply do not do justice to this palace on a hill. We truly felt like royalty in SJDS. The Condo was beyond spacious, stunning, and the views from the top and lower decks were breathtaking, especially at sunset. We cannot stop bragging to friends about this place, and will probably be returning to stay soon. Thanks for the luxurious hospitality.

  • Very much enjoyed our third stay in San Juan del Sur. We also shared the condo with family staying for our daughter's wedding and they were greatly impressed with the condo, the location and the view from the terrace. Hope to be back in 2014.

  • This is a beautiful place to stay in SJDS! The condo is very clean and comfortable, and there is a stunning view of the water from both the upper and lower balcony. Laura was very responsive and helpful both before, during and after the trip which made the logistics very easy. There are around-the-clock caretakers who are very nice and they were very patient with my limited Spanish! This condo would be a great place to stay with a few friends -- it's very spacious. I only wish we utilized the wonderful kitchen to cook! It is a lovely place to stay while you're visiting SJDS.

  • We enjoyed our second stay here as much as our first and will be back again in December. Great view of the cruise liners in the bay of San Juan del Sur from the condo terrace.

About
We are just two travel loving people who fell in love with the country of Nicaragua and ended up buying our dream home! While we try and spend as much time there as possible, occasionally, we do have to work- and we do want to keep discovering this amazing planet. While we are doing this, we are happy to offer homes in our community to others to enjoy and discover this truly amazing country! San Juan del Sur Nicaragua is the place to come for travellers who are looking for surf, sunshine and a little adventure, and we try our best to make our home a little piece of luxury to come and relax in between all that fun! Through renting our own personal home Casa Selva- I fell into assisting my amazing neighbours in Balcones de Majagual with renting their homes- the rest they say is history. You couldn't pick a better spot in Nicaragua- and you couldn't pick better guests than myself and my husband Joel!
