About this listing
Gorgeous 1800sq foot villa with massive deck affording ocean views set in the hills of SJDS. The home sleeps five comfortably in two master en suites and office. Enjoy life in the jungle, solar hot water and dips in the shared infinity pool!
Designed by renowned Architect Matthew Falkner, Casa Suerte serves as an idyllic setting for those looking for a tranquil and certainly unique Nicaraguan destination.
Located hillside in the private ecological reserve and boutique community of Balcones de Majagual, the house features views directly out to beautiful Majagual beach, and it is often easy to spot passing humpback whales from your own 520 square feet private deck which overlooks the serene infinity swimming pool. In addition to whales, you will be sure to encounter an abundance of interesting wildlife, including our own community of placid howler monkeys, which never cease to fascinate and charm guests.
Enjoy evening cocktails on the deck while watching a picture perfect Pacific coast sunset followed by a dinner cooked on the house’s 4-burner Charbroil BBQ. You can even purchase fresh fish and lobsters pulled straight from the sea by local fisherman down at our local beach!
Casa Suerte comprises of cooling polished concrete floors, and beautifully detailed native hardwood features throughout. The house has and has been designed to allow natural airflow throughout constantly, making it a comfortable retreat after a day in the sun at one of the local surf beaches, many of which are in walking distance, or a short drive from the house.
Two generously proportioned bedrooms, each with ensuite, are supplemented with an additional office/library with a double sofa bed, comfortably accommodating a 5th guest. The interior is fitted with a mix of architect-designed furniture, mixed with Nicaraguan antique pieces.
In contrast to it’s natural setting the house is appointed with essential modern services, including a dedicated Wi-Fi service and PC, laptop, plus fully fitted kitchen with extra bar fridge to ensure your drinks are kept cool, and it’s own washer/dyer should you require it. Your stay is made comfortable by the onsite services that provide 24hour security, maid and pool cleaning services. A fluent english and spanish speaking meet and greet is included in the cost of rental.
Located 12km north of lovely San Juan Del Sur guests are strongly recommended to hire a four-wheel drive vehicle which will not only allow access to Casa Suerte but also to many of the unique beaches in the surrounding area. Once out of town all roads are dirt so it’s a great opportunity to enjoy country roads and explore the region

Interaction with Guests
Guests will be cared for by our meet and greet once on the ground in Nicaragua!
One of the best parts of staying at Casa Suerte is the quiet that allows you to enjoy the sounds of the jungle. On days when the breezes are gentle you can hear the ocean crashing. Every day you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee with the parakeets singing and the Mono Congo monkey's hanging in the trees around the house. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets singing outside the house. Unlike many of the homes in and around San Juan Del Sur, Casa Suerte is unique in its setting. Perched on a ridge, the home is located in a private boutique community, containing 11 homes on roughly 100 acres stretching from the jungle to the ocean. There is enough space between homes to enjoy complete privacy without feeling alone or isolated. The lack of light pollution allows you to swim in the pool on clear nights by moonlight, something not to be missed. We provide 24 hour on site security, cleaning service and management without being intrusive. We are also an ecologic conscious community. What does this mean? We do not believe in spraying heavy pesticides like local hotels do to control bugs, what this does mean is you may encounter a few critters in and around the house, but we are not poisoning the food chain from the bottom up. All of our actions have far reaching consequences, and we want monkeys and parrots to visit the home. We heat our water with solar heat (and there is no lack of that!) and all our furniture and wood in the home is reclaimed fallen hardwoods, ethically sourced in north east Nicaragua.
There is no public transport ections
We like to point out that our roads are dirt roads- and we mean backroad steep grade with more than a few bump dirt roads. All part of the fun but we want you to be prepared. 4 x 4 is required and not optional and we will escort you out for your first drive around!
As guests are required to have their own 4 x 4 vehicle to stay at Casa Suete we can assist with booking.

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 (Joel is a photographer and Laura a chef)- and we do want to keep discovering this amazing planet-current location is California though we are Canadians (Toronto in fact!). 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 - I fell into assisting my amazing neighbours in San Juan del Sur 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!
