Experience the unparalleled beauty of Nicaragua at Casa Arbol the ultimate tree house. Our two story treehouse villa sleeping up to four guests overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is located in one of Central America's largest private wildlife corridors- the community of Balcones de Majagual, making for incredible wildlife sightings a daily occurrence. Enjoy the shared pool, modern amenities, wildlife, wifi- everything is here to make this the vacation of your dreams- we can't wait to host you!
Casa Arbol is a 2-story treehouse (yes!) that overlooks the Pacific Ocean in one of Central America's largest private wildlife corridors, making for incredible wildlife sightings an almost daily occurrence. A five-minute drive down our private road will take you to three of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Playa Maderas, Playa Playones and Playa Majagual. This house is proud to be part of a community spearheading eco-friendly vacations without sacrificing luxury- Balcones de Majagual Casa Arbol was built to be the perfect balance of tropical open-air living and modern comfort. High ceilings provide extraordinary views through our state-of-the-art screen system. This unique amenity brings you the fresh air, the crashing of waves, and the calls of exotic birds -- all while making sure nothing but the fresh air actually comes inside. The home overlooks a low valley and its position is perfect for some extraordinary bird and monkey watching from inside the house or on our two decks. The house is supported by massive eucalyptus trunks and curved wood ceilings built from sustainable timber. Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and grounds. The living room features a new large flat screen TV, a Sony audio system, DVD library, art collection, and leather and wood furniture and furnishings by the architect who designed the home. The master and guest bedrooms both have forest and ocean views, custom lighting, and their own bathrooms with beautiful stonework throughout. In keeping with the eco-conscious nature of the house, piping hot water is provided by our solar hot water heater. Our recently upgraded battery-backup system provides silent power for the house even during Nicaragua's brief power outages, so you will not hear noisy generators running and your trip will not be interrupted. We have a fully equipped kitchen, a new refrigerator, a microwave, gas oven/stove, and purified water available for your convenience. Travel to nearby San Juan del Sur for local fruits and vegetables, some of the freshest fish you’ll ever eat, and meat and poultry that are the very definition of free-range. A 15-minute walk or a 4-minute drive takes you through forest canopies right to Playa Majagual and private, secluded luxury. From the beach, walk north to explore the tide-pools or south to one of the world’s best surf-breaks. But you may decide to just stay put and sunbathe, have a picnic in the private palapa, body surf in the perfect waves, stare in wonder at the sunset, or all of the above. Bird and wildlife watching from the house or on the many hiking and nature trails, is incomparable. Howler monkeys live in the trees around the house in large numbers – and you will hear them each day around sundown as they prepare for the night. November thru April is Ocelot and Margay cat season – and we have seen them on many occasions. Kinkajou will likely visit at night next to the porch in the canopy, where the fruits they loves grow and ripen in the green months, May through November. Sloth, Coatimudi and a multitude of other animals will all visit at various times. Enjoy the custom stonework, stone showers and countertops, outdoor shower and the hammock on the pool deck An additional sunset deck in the very tops of the trees above the house provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set in the evenings over the Pacific below. The Master bedroom is an incredible space, all stone, wood, custom lighting and furniture. The vista of the ocean below or the night sky surrounding you -- after lights out it is difficult to tell whether you are indoors or outdoors. Magical. A gorgeous shared plunge pool set on the edge of the hill allows for incredible view of the Pacific- particularly at sunset! Concierge services are included in the cost and they can arrange for zip-lines and canopy tours, surfing lessons, fishing expeditions, Spanish lessons, and professional massages on site. Parking, cleaning services, gardening and pool service, and around-the-clock security are also included. If you are looking for a night on the town, San Juan del Sur, and its fantastic line of beachfront restaurants and bars, is just 8 kilometers away. There is even a small casino if you want to play cards or slots. And if you want to know our favorite places to eat and drink, just ask. We can also give hints about discounts in the area. Whether watching a Kinkajou eat from the trees in front of you while relaxing in the pool, learning to howl like a Howler monkey out on the observation deck, or eating your first homemade bowl of gallo pinto, Casa Arbol is guaranteed to give you a vacation you will never forget. Please note Casa Arbol sleeps a MAXIMUM of four in two beds. Please note Casa Arbol has a SHARED pool with the neighbouring home For larger groups check out the neighbouring home that shares the pool with us Casa Cielo Azul https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/1213115
One of the best parts of staying at Casa Arbol 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 Arbol is unique in its setting. Perched on a ridge, the home is located in a private boutique community, containing 12 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. Besides the obvious benefit of living in a tree house, you are right at the beaches, right near the surf, and not in town so the only noise you hear is that of the jungle!
  • What a wonderful trip! The home was amazing, the Remax hosts were delightful and so very attentive. They helped to arrange catamaran sails, surf lessons and massages on the porch of the beautiful house. The pictures do not do it justice. It was just amazing all around. I traveled with a friend and my recently graduated college daughter and her friend. Couldn't have asked for a better celebration vacation!!

  • No words can explain how incredible this experience has been . casa Arbol is the exact definition of charm. The place is literally in the middle of the jungle and you must have a 4x4. No questions about it. I personally loved the off road part but I can see some 'different' people struggling with it. The house is a gem , very stylish and beautifully decorated . Nicole and all the staff were amazing. We went there with our two young kids and each one of us had the best time. The staff was Helpful , professional and on point . This experience has left a strong mark on our lives

  • Casa Arbol was great! Definitely a relaxing stay, and it was nice to be able to fall asleep to the sound of nature. The view was amazing as well. It's a beautiful home! You do need the 4WD, so definitely make the reservation. We booked with Dollar which was recommended to us. Elsi was also great and took us to the market to buy fruit and a couple of other stores to buy things for the beach. We ended up going to Pali on our way to Casa Arbol to buy the rest of our groceries so maybe the first trip to buy fruit wasn't necessary. I loved the secluded feel of the home and the drive as well. Also, I personally do not mind bugs, but my mom was not a big fan of them. You'll see spiders, roaches, and scorpions. Nothing too crazy (again you're in a well equipped treehouse in a jungle), but it is good to be a little cautious when putting on shoes or something. My son was fine with seeing bugs as well. I also loved that it was a short drive to the beach. We didn't use the pool, so not much to say about it. There was only one downside to our stay there. We didn't have hot water. I contacted Laura to see if it could be handled and she said the staff would take a look at it. I'm not sure if they did, but we didn't have hot water for our entire stay. Overall, I liked it.

  • Angelique and Giuseppe have a beautiful home. Absolutely stunning views. The meet and greet staff were great - we had a lot of trouble with our car rental and Gabriella helped us out and dealt with our constant questions. Definitely trust the people/companies they recommend(we didn't with the car) - it'll save you a huge headache. Make sure you're comfortable with the people you're visiting with - there are no doors on the Master Bedroom/Bathroom and you have to walk through the bathroom to get to the guest bedroom(which does have its own separate entrance to the outside though, which was handy)

  • Beautiful tranquil space. Perfect for relaxing.

  • I stayed here with a friend and we had a great time! It was the end of our trip, after being in Nicaragua for just under 1 month. It was a great way to end our travels. The view was breathtaking and the pictures are exactly as is. Very wise of the owners to require you to rent a vehicle. It was very handy, especially for the drive to get to Balcones. We were sent to rent a vehicle off of Dollar Rental. They were very nice and helpful, but there are other options in San Juan to rent that have a cheaper deposit if you are travelling on a budget. Also, the kitchen is fully equipped as says, and has everything you need to once you go shopping, but make sure to ask around for good places to eat around Playa Maderas if you aren't wanting to do too much cooking on vacation (one of our favourite spots to eat was Arte-Sano). Our guides from Remax were helpful and made us feel very comfortable with getting our rental and arriving at Casa Arbol. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for incredible views, being surrounded by nature, being close to the beach and having a beautiful place to stay on vacation.

    Amazing views of SJDS and the bay. No car needed as town is just a short 5min walk down the hill. Hear the waves crash in the bay and enjoy picturesque sunsets from the infinity pool.
    New construction, rustic beach bungalow, nestled on the hill above San Juan del Sur, just a short walk to town center (up a steep hill). Common area includes infinity pool, full kitchen and living/dining area, rocking and hammock chairs. High speed internet. 2 min walk to Zen Yoga.
  • San Juan Del Sur is Great town, and what an amazing home with a view of it all. Brendan was a very gracious host and I'm looking forward to visiting again some day soon.

    Justin2016-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this house -- spacious, clean, perfectly located, with beautiful views. Brendan was a great host. He arranged our transportation from the airport and on to our next destination, taking the stress off of our shoulders. The pool was perfect, with breathtaking views of SJDS. The town is literally down the hill, about a 5 minute walk to anything you would need. Would stay here again!

    Abbey2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Brendan's home was comfortable, convenient, and so beautiful. I would recommend staying here!

    Abigail2017-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic view of San Juan and the bay. The place was clean, in good repair and well-equipped. Brendan was very helpful in helping us arrange for transportation and answering all our questions about the San Juan. He also has a brewery in town with some tasty beer.

    Ryan2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, private room and bathroom. Brendan was a nice host with plenty of local information to share. He also has a brewery in town which was great! Good food and live music on certain nights. The other people staying here were also very friendly. Brendan was also very attentive and reachable if we needed anything or had questions! Thank you! We would stay again!

    Steven2016-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • First of all I want to thank Brendan, because he is a great host. The house is really nice, it sits on a hill so you have an amazing view of the bay area. I loved spending time on the pool gazing the view. The house is fully equipped is about 5 minutes from town. I will highly recommend you visit this house.

    Anthony2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location.

    Josh2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Brendan was a great host, owns a very cool brewery in town and turned out to be very well connected in the expat scene in SJDS, introducing me to some really awesome people who live and work in SJDS. Highly recommend his place to anyone looking for a quiet, clean and comfortable place to stay, with sweet ocean views and a nice pool to soak in.

You have all the workings to have an incredibly time right outside Casa Papaya's doorstep!
  • Great little place just off the busy Main Street in San Juan del sur. We enjoyed Danny's guiding and information from the surf shop next door, and having great food down the street. If you want a smaller basic space to yourself this is a good option.

    This is a 2nd floor Condo with 2 beds and 2 baths. The 1st floor Condo is a 2 bed and 1 bath. They are separate. My place is walking distance to restaurants and dining, the beach, family-friendly activities, nightlife. You’ll love my place because of the high ceilings, the views, the location, the people, and the ambiance. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets). Disclosure: Condo development near by.
    Walking distance to the beach, entertainment and shopping. Surfing, zip lining and an amazing night entertainment. Disclosure: Condo development near by.

  • We really enjoyed our stay. The view was amazing. Chris, Emer and Juan were all very responsive and helpful. There was a lot of construction going on nearby which would have been good to know but the workers we're friendly enough and I think they even build a temporary wall so that the guest could enjoy the pool in privacy. Don't walk to and from the house at night. Take a cab. The dogs were terrifying. Overall a great home and a great visit to San Juan del Sur.

    Stephen2016-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • The staff, Emer and Juan were a huge help. Juan went above and beyond ensuring all went well with our fishing trip and helped us loading and unloading the truck. The home is just a couple minutes from the town but provides a great level of security and privacy. Great views!

    Bernie2016-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous views! Great pool, powerful air conditioning! Juan is a great help if you need anything at all or have any questions . It is very difficult to get up the hill if you get one of the little Suzuki altos so I recommend you get a running start. It was a little awkward with all of the construction workers to sit by the pool and they do start arriving around 7am but fortunately we are early risers so it didn't bother us too much. Overall the house is amazing and nothing compares to the view.

    Lacey2016-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • My experience staying at this condo was awesome! The condo was very clean, AC worked, beds were comfy, Elmer and Juan were helpful and very attentive to our needs. Check in/out was smooth and fast. We loved the view (breathtaking)!!! The rooms and bathrooms are pretty spacey and the kitchen is equipped with basic kitchen tools. There's parking and also it's walkable to get to the city. We forgot to bring lemons and Juan went out of his way and happily gave us some of his. Host has great communication and that's key. Def felt at home and enjoyed my stay! :)

    Genesis2017-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were in the apartment 23 nights, longer than we expected cause we have been very satisfied. The apartment equipped with everything you need, a fabulous pool that always clean with an amazing view of San Juan Bay, Beautiful place to wake up every morning. The apartment is always clean, always clean towels and sheets. Apartment within walking distance from the city center. The landlord is always available and takes care of all. There is a guard outside the apartment named Juan, he was like a father to us and always helped and took care of everything we needed. In short, an excellent place to spend a vacation in Nicaragua, we will probably go back here again!!

    Itai2016-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely recommended! Comfortable, quiet and it is located in San Juan del Sur downtown!. Fair price and Chris is always up for help when needed. Five stars!

    Ramon2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • This house in incredible!! We highly, highly recommend it to anyone considering staying in SJDS. We stayed in the upper level of the house which had amazing views of the bay and was nice an quiet. The house had everything we needed, with a fully functioning kitchen, two bathrooms, aircon and great wifi. As well as a beautiful pool and BBQ area downstairs. The manager (Emer) was easy to communicate with and always able to help. We were also provided unlimited purified water, clothes washing facilities and a lift into town occasionally. The walk into town is easy and only around 10 - 15 minutes. This property is perfect for groups, or families, being in a nice quiet location but close enough to the centre of town. There was some construction work during our stay, however this was well and truly made up by the fact that the hosts were so incredibly friendly and helpful. If we ever return to SJDS we will definitely stay at this place again. Thank you Chris, Emer and Juan :)

  • Great spot in San Juan Del Sur. View is as stated and the place is in a great location. Off the beaten path which allows for privacy. I recommend renting a side by side for transportation to the town. As the house is up in the mountain with a spectacular view. Worth it.

    Allyn2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Helping us find the house late Thursday was so helpful. And all of your quick responses to questions before booking.

  • The House was amazing and clean. Just like the pictures. The House caretakers we're very good at explaining how everything works with the home and serviceful. Two thumbs up for Juan. Only thing to make note of is that the GPS home location is way wrong which makes it difficult to find the home. On my reservation there was a minor confusion with the host but it all got handle quick, so thanks Gustavo for such fast responses and friendlyness.

    Our guesthouse, located within the center of town, is a hidden oasis with a backyard pool and garden setting, in addition to its "high top" terrace with an overview of town. We provide a laid back vibe as well as additional services for our guests.
    Moke Huhu Guesthouse can accommodate couples, solo travellers as well as groups. For this specific listing we are catering to couples and/or solo travellers and offer a private room located in our garden/patio area. This garden room has a queen bed and private bathroom (the shower is also equipped for hot showers), in addition to storage space. Nightly rates include Wifi internet, housekeeping, A/C, ceiling fan, linens and towels (for guesthouse use only), use of outdoor pool and patio/garden/terrace common areas, as well as BBQ, communal kitchen and locker to store valuables. There is also free purified water available in the kitchen.
    The guesthouse is located in "Barrio Central" or the central neighbourhood. Located within a few feet is Pan de Vida bakery, El Gato Negro coffeehouse & bookstore, the local market, a sushi joint, and up the street you will find yourself at the local beach, which is a "hot spot" for nightlife. Since we are located on the main street entering town, many local venders pass by throughout the day selling their goods and wares, including typical Nica style food and local fruit.
  • Eduardo and his staff were very kind and helpful. The hostel was very clean and the AC in our room was a comforting break from the heat. The internet wasn't strong enough to reach our room, so you'd have to go to the common room to get a signal. They had a well equipped kitchen, which made it convenient for preparing our meals. This hostel is located just a block off the main strip and beach. They also offer surf lessons and shuttle services.

    Christian2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The people are super nice, the neighborhood is a bit noisy!

    Rhonda2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is basically a hostel. The prices are reasonable, and we got a simple room, functioning AC, a super clean and refreshing pool, and a great location. Our room, #1, was set in the back and very quiet. The staff are super friendly and diligent. I cannot say enough good things about them. The room could us some fixing up and freshening though, as it was less appealing inside than the pictures made it appear. If you are looking for a cheap place in town however, you will be fine here.

    Doron and Cheryl2017-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Had an excellent time. Staff is wonderful, rooms are simple but great for my partner and I. We made good use of the pool, as well as the kitchen. Very centrally located, which meant that we were close enough to walk down to the beach, or up to Pali for groceries, but just out of the way enough to avoid the madness of horny drunk tourists. Sound does travel between rooms, but nothing so bad that we couldn't sleep. Power outages are not uncommon throughout cities in Nicaragua, so there isn't a whole lot they can do to change that (you'd need one hell of a generator). Wi-Fi worked as well. Overall, we would happily stay there again.

    Peter2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Moke Huhu. The staff was friendly and courteous and helped us get away to another beach for a day. The rooms were clean and the common area, although small, was great to sit and chat. The location was just excellent, within a short walking distance to everything that we needed. And the layout was perfect for safety and security.

    Liane2015-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • I didn't get a chance to meet Katie and Eduardo in person but they kept amazing communication with me over email and were always prompt with their replies. Their staff were very kind, helpful and welcoming. The rooms were very comfortable, especially with the AC. It's so damn close to everything, maybe a 1 min walk to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants? Highly recommend!

    Jadden2016-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a simple and nice place to stay with air conditioning, a small pool and a very flexible staff. I added an extra person to my room at check in. The staff was willing to move a bed into the room for me free of charge. There was always someone present to answer questions and help navigate the city. Thank you for a relaxing stay!

  • The house was a lot nicer than the pictures. It's not really close enough to walk to town but we rented motorbikes which made things more convenient. I would definitely recommend this place. The view was epic!

    Danielle2017-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Villa Helena was awesome. My friends and I were a group of 7 and it was perfect. The view is phenomenal; even though we spent 90% of our time on the patio, it never got old. Make sure you catch a sunset at the villa, it is breathtaking. As for the house, every bedroom has it's own bathroom which was perfect for a large group. The place is spotless and is well equipped with most things you need but bring a sharp knife if you plan on cooking more than huevos and beach towels if you want to head to the beach. The villa is farther out of town than the Airbnb location radius indicates so you should (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) ‘Villa Helena’ for a closer idea for where it is (the road it’s on is not registered on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps). With that said, It is closer to 10 minutes by car and a 30-40 minute walk to town on an unpaved road that can be steep at times so we did feel slightly trapped. There is construction right behind the property but it really didn’t affect our stay, granted it was the windy season and we mostly heard the wind… Our housekeepers, Alfredo and Seide and their family live beside the villa. They were very kind and helpful and did not disturb our stay in any way. Denise was quick to show us the ropes around the place and gave us her contact for drivers. Pablo was our driver the whole time and while we never got to thank him, he was a total G and really made our stay in SJDS. Thanks Hector and team for a great stay at Villa Helena!

  • Villa Helena is an absolutely beautiful 4/4 house in San Juan del Sur with a breath-taking view over the beach and sunset. It comes with a fully stocked kitchen with all of your normal kitchen appliances in addition to a toaster oven, coffee machine, margarita mixer, and many types of glasses (martini, champagne, beer, wine) for whatever you may want to do. The beds are very comfortable and roomy. The bathrooms are gorgeous. The living room has a large 6 person dining room table accompanied by a large screen television that comes equipped to play Spotify music, Netflix, etc. Since this is a very new house, there are a few things that are still being worked out. We were without water for about 12 hours in the day/evening which was slightly problematic. The owners have placed 2 extra water tanks in the house to help this problem, as we were only out of water for 12 hours while the houses around us were out for a few days. Hector did his very best to resolve this issue, even offering to send a water truck first thing in the morning after the issue had not been solved by 8pm. In SJDS, there are multiple power outages which is common. They usually last only a few minutes, however it did turn off our wifi. We were without wifi for 2/3 days during our stay due to this; they attempted to trouble shoot the router but it did not help. We needed to wait on Claro (the cable company) to solve this issue for us, unfortunately, so it was out of the owners control. It would be best to have someone in the group that has either an international data plan or a Nicaraguan plan that offers access to call/texts and data. GPS is really needed to maneuver the roads until one is used to the layout since the neighborhood is quite new and the roads are a little confusing. Also in case of needing to get ahold of Hector when the wifi is out, which we needed to do a few times to help with water and power outages. All of these things said, the house is truly great. It would be best to have a car with you to drive to the beach (~15 min drive) and to get to town. A shuttle is offered by the owners which charges ~20$ USD to and from the house to the city center if you wish to go to the many great restaurants and bars. Thank you for having us!

    Kimberley2017-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was spectacular, gorgeous!! The view was amazing, the sunsets were breath taking! Nice and breezing in the early mornings and night time. Over all me and my family had an amazing experience! Thank you Hector!

  • Patrick was a great host! He answered all my questions very promptly. I loved his house! The house was very spacious which was great because we were a big group and we all fitted perfectly fine and felt comfortable. From the house you could see San Juan del Sur's coast as it is located on a hill, it was beautiful. My family and I had a great time staying at Patrick's house.

    Alexandra 2015-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately, I was not able to to make it to San Juan Del Sur and experience the stay myself. However, My family had the opportunity to visit Casa Margarita and they had amazing time. Since the first moment they arrived, they felt welcome. Patrick and his family were very helpful every moment. They made my family feel at home. They were kind to give them rides to the little town and showed them how to get around. My family was in love with the beautiful home.The house was always impeccable. The workers were very nice. I have not heard a complained from my mother, brother or uncle. Overall, the experience was outstanding. Thank you Patrick for all you did for my family and understanding my situation!

    Joaquin2015-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent time at Casa Margarita! Laura contacted us as soon as we booked the house to welcome us and also put us in touch with the local property manager Gabriela at Remax. Gabriela was so friendly and welcoming us to the property, making sure we had everything we needed, from knowing how to towel cards worked for the pools to asking us if we wanted the hotel to bring up a 5 gallon of purified water for a nominal charge to offering to help book a ferry to Ometepe. As for the house, everything was as described, with clean, comfortable rooms, AC, equipped kitchen, and stunning views of San Juan del Sur bay. What a wonderful way to wake up every day! We would definitely recommend staying here. Five days at Casa Margarita was not enough!

    Shane2015-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely home! It was a quiet retreat, stunning views, I wanted to live on the upper terrace! Gabi from ReMax, who manages the property, was just terrific in every way. She made it very easy to get settled in. Pelican Eyes is a lovely property. I didn't eat at either of the restaurants as I enjoyed the fully furnished kitchen (bring your own spices! ;-). This would be a terrific house for a private, comfy retreat, a couples get-away, or a family reunion. The bedrooms are both large, and both have their own gorgeous bathrooms and lovely terraces. The only issue was with the gas hot water. But Gabi had maintenance at the property within thirty minutes to work on the issue. Just check to see that all is well before you book, as we never did get hot water at the kitchen sink, and we only had enough hot water for one short shower. Having checked on the issue, I would definitely choose to stay here again!!

    Cheryl2016-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Casa Margarita for a stay in SJDS! The house is quiet and comfortable with an amazing view. But I would recommend you sort out transportation before booking though, as Pelican Eyes no longer allows guest in private homes to use their shuttle service. Finding your own transportation is worth it for this house!

  • The villa was nice. We had some issues with water, water pipes were down due road work. 2nd night had a rain storm which showed that the master bathroom roof was not securely covered, causing the entire bathroom to be flooded & not fit for use. Honestly think this was maybe an oversight as the entire hotel/villa looks to be fairly new. We appreciate very much the pick-up service from town as we got stuck in the rain. The venue's 4x4 picked us up & brought us safely back to the villa. The villa was overall beautiful with great views to watch the sunset. We also enjoyed using the grill for bbq. We have seen in other airbnb rentals the availability of more kitchen items, but maybe not common in Nicaragua. Make sure to stock up on the essentials for cooking. Cooking stuff is available, but need to bring your spices. I recommend this place to others interested.

    Joan 2015-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful experience. Casa Margarita is beautiful, the view is stunning. Laura perfectly arranged the logistics with Nicole at Re/Max. The directions how to get to San Juan were very useful and accurate. We are thankful to the Gorman family for sharing their beautiful house.

  • We had an amazing time at Villa Baleares. The listed pictures do not do the home justice-- it is stunning. And the staff at the home were wonderful. Not only did they cook great meals and keep everything clean, they were also a big help arranging taxis, providing beach recommendations, even arranging for a masseuse to come to the home. I highly recommend this house! My one recommendation would be to have at least one Spanish speaker in your group (intermediate level is fine), as the staff does not speak English. However they are very eager to try to communicate despite the language gap.

    Anne2016-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • There's a long list of superlatives I could use to describe this home. However, I believe the most accurate reflection of how I feel about Casa Baleares I can give is this: we came back. This was our second time choosing this house amongst many wonderful homes in San Juan del Sur. And, we will return again. It's that good.

  • Fantastic stay. The house was perfect - just as described, if not better. The staff was what made the stay special. The butler, chef, maid and security guard made us feel at home while attending to any of our needs - either requested or suspected. If I could give this property a higher rating, I would.

    Jordan2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Julio's house was fantastic. It was the most fun we've had in an Airbnb. The staff is amazing, the views fantastic, the food better than anything in town, and the architecture deserving of praise. We were a group of 6 (3 couples) and used less than half of the available space. This house could easily host a dozen people with no problem. Julio's communication was excellent and we were able to have all our shopping done prior to our arrival. I believe this is the first house I truly hope visit again. Seriously, it is that good.

    T.J. & Cathy2016-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Julio's home, "Balaeres" is just as he describes... "AMAZING". The home has a great layout with an open-air indoor/outdoor common area that is great for groups to hang all day near the pool and enjoy the stunning view. The rooms were all comfortable and clean. The Balaeres staff is excellent. Our butler, Alejandro was so attentive and really made a great trip even better, taking care of all of our needs from food requests, to taxis, to advise on local activities. Our group LOVED this house and will definitely return!!

  • The house is amazing, the view, the pool, the design all are amazing. Access is a bit of a problem because you need a 4x4 but it is totally worth it! 15 minutes by walk to town. Cristina really took care of us as well as the Elias who takes care of the property. Would definitely rent again if I go back to San Juan!

    Don2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • I don't know if I can fairly describe how amazing everything was from the house to the service we received before and during our stay. The house was absolutely amazing it was clean, spacious and well stocked. We happily cooked breakfast most mornings. The floor plan was very well thought out, accommodating big groups comfortably but also cozy for smaller groups like ours....and oh boy....the view! The view had my whole family speechless. It was always hard to leave the house because we had everything we needed. It was a short drive to town and to the grocery store which was nice because we could just quickly pop into the store on our way home from town. The onsite caretaker was also amazing, going above and beyond making sure we were comfortable. He was always available and helpful when needed but never intrusive. He also acted as security in the evening which was nice although the house had an alarm system, so we always felt safe. Christhian, who manages the house, was always available and responded promptly to any concerns we had. She was always pleasant and attentive before, during and after our stay. Overall our experience was beyond fantastic and we look forward to returning! The only con is...we had to leave.

    Rosa2016-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This home is absolutely stunning. While the pictures are beautiful, they really can't compare to the beauty that is this home. The second we walked through the front door, we knew we made the right choice. The home is absolutely amazing and is located in an ideal place - close to town and all of the various playas the SJDS has to offer. I stayed here with three girlfriends and we had more than enough room. The balcony/pool space is absolutely incredible. It was the perfect way to start and finish each day. The view from the balcony is absolutely stunning - perfect for sunset time! The main level does not have air conditioning, which was fine by our group as we spent the majority of our time out at the beaches or exploring SJDS. Besides, the pool is an incredible way to cool down. Also, open the doors and you catch a wonderful breeze. The bedrooms each have an a/c unit and very comfortable beds, which made for incredibly comfortable sleeping. The kitchen is perfect for having multiple bodies in the room and cooking. It has all of the cookware and utensils one would need to prepare meals from the home. We were very happy that we chose to rent a 4x4 vehicle. We could've easily walked to and from town and the beaches each day, but it definitely takes time (I would say approximately a half hour to town, based on how you go). The climb to the house is steep and it would've taken up much of our time and money to wait on taxis, as we found that taxis typically charged a lot to go from SJDS to the house, even though it's only a five minute drive, max. It was very convenient and helpful to have the 4x4 vehicle. One thing to note is that the power in Nicaragua often goes out. In fact, every Wednesday the power is shut down in all of SJDS. We didn't know that beforehand, and it really didn't matter to us at all, but it is good to know ahead of time. The power went out a few times on windy days, but the house has a generator, so that was helpful in the evening hours. Cristhian is such an asset for this property. She met us upon our arrival, checked us into the house and was available throughout the course of our stay. She also had plenty of recommendations and tips for us, which we loved! Elias, the property caretaker, and his wife were also incredibly helpful. Elias is such a sweet man who truly cares for his responsibilities. We had a Spanish speaker in our group, which certainly helped, since Elias does not speak English. However, it's not completely necessary. Something to note is that guests need to tell Elias when they need something or want less of something (example: he came to the house every morning and swept and strained the pool. We certainly appreciated that,...

    Shannon2017-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our recent stay in this house was nothing short of spectacular. It must be really impressive for me to rank something 5 stars, but it is worth every one. From the moment I reserved to our departure, Cris (the property manager) really took care of us. She stayed in communication with me during our very long winded bus ride from San Jose Costa Rica, to ensure we knew what we were when we arrived. We were quickly met by Cris upon arrival at the restaurant (which the property owner also owned). Knowing that the house is in a remote location up on the hill she recommended renting some form of transportation and ideally some ATV's. Cris very generously drove us around to at least 5 locations to find rentals who were all out of ATV's, going in to each location on our behalf until finally finding a very affordable fun little off road "gator" like vehicle. Well above and beyond her responsibilities. The house: It is best described as "jaw dropping" and "luxurious". Even better than the pictures. Very spacious with 3 floors and far more than needed for 3 guys. The furniture, lighting, pool, kitchen, bar, surround sound stereo system, views are all top shelf and well designed to bring you comfort. We honestly never wanted to leave the house and ended up spending a lot of time there. For those exercise enthusiasts there is even an adequate small gym with free weights, tread mill, and heavy bag to work out. Although it is like a sauna up there and meant only for the dedicated. The cascading waterfall into the pool was also a nice touch for ambiance. The rooms: 1 on the top floor with the gym, and 3 on the bottom floor. All are air conditioned, very clean and have on suite bathrooms. It is nice to enjoy the natural weather on the main floor and have A/C in the rooms to have good sleep. Sleep was very important to us and each room is designed for sleep with very little light. The shared room with two beds has no windows at all (which I like). One room has a couch and the only TV in the house. All very comfortable beds with no challenges sleeping. I am a chef and appreciated the kitchen and the pantry stocked with a respectable array of spices (which I added to and left behind for you). The pots, pans, sufficient amount of plate & cups, gas stove were all a nice touch as well. The outdoor table and lounging furniture is ample for a large group. Overall our stay was almost magical. Really a pleasant stay. Unforgettable. Thank you Cris for all of your help. I hope your boss knows how great of an employee he has. Clearly very organized and understands public relations. The few minor cons: There is a live-in maintenance guy who lives at the side of the house. He is a great guy and was helpful...

  • Describe the experience? God-like. There aren't words to fairly describe it, but I'll do my best. The host was so warm and kind, the house was modern and gorgeous, and the view was way beyond whatever you're (URL HIDDEN) mind could barely handle it. So, is what I'm saying is - get this villa!!

  • Very stylish and spacious studio that has everything you need . Super nice place, absolutely recommended. Convenient location walkable to the beach, although a cheap cab home is necessary at night. Paul and Anne were very friendly and helpful! Thanks for hosting:)

  • Paul and Anne were wonderful hosts. The apartment was the perfect place to stay while exploring SJDS. The spot is a 15 min walk on the beach from town and a $5 taxi home at night. They were very responsive and knowledgeable with all our random questions and did a very thorough check in with recommendations and advice etc. THANKS VERY MUCH ANNE AND PAUL!

    Emily2017-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at Paul and Anne's place. Location is great, very close to the beach and 10 min. walk to town. We took a taxi to return to the condo and the cost was 150 Cordobas -5 US dollars. There is a nice patio with comfy chairs in front of the apartment and we used it in the evenings to look at the stairs and have a night cup. A caretaker came over to check on us and we saw him making rounds every night. We felt very safe. Bed is very comfy with nice sheets, plenty of hot water to have a shower and cold, purified water to drink. We would return for sure.

When we arrived we were well informed about many things to be aware of in San Juan Del Sur. Even though the listing is far away from downtown, sound does carry up from the bars until late. Comfy Beds, very clean space, with a nice modern touch.

    James2016-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Anne were wonderful! The place was very clean and close to the beach. It was about 15 minute walk to town, or a 5 dollar taxi. The place is very modern with great wifi.

    Ajay2017-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Anne & Paul were delightful. We received great recommendations from them for restaurants in the area (G&G being incredible). They accommodated our last minute travel snafus (check in time adjustments & accidentally leaving passports in the safe) with grace and flexibility. We really enjoyed our stay. The only hiccup we found a little uncomfortable was the energy maximum limit. During moments of heat/high humidity, we wished for a little more freedom to run the air and had to watch ourselves carefully not to go over the limit. Otherwise, the stay was awesome and would definitely recommend to others! The beach is so close to walk to, and a great quiet/safe neighborhood location.

    Ginger2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. The photos are very representative of the property and the location is easy walking distance into town but far enough away to be peaceful. Communication was very prompt and professional. Anne gave us all the info we needed on check in and was available for further questions. Anne and Paul also kindly offered us a lift to Rivas when we left.

    The entire top floor apartment is offered to guests and has its own private staircase and entrance. We live in the downstairs apartment so we are close by if you need anything. It is one of the very few accommodations you don't have to walk up a hill to get to the beach! A great spot to get away from the heat and crowds at the beach but so close aswell. You can sit on the deck and watch the howler monkeys and other wildlife. We also have cable TV to watch movies, which comes in handy for the quiet nights at Maderas. We have a portable cot/crib available or the second bed is close to the main bed so is perfect for children to sleep close by.
    During the day, Playa Maderas comes to life with day trippers visiting from San Juan Del Sur. The house is located 150meters back from the beach so you can escape the crowds during the day for a siesta in the shade. Once the sun sets, everything goes quiet and is very peaceful. In the mornings you will have the chance to have the beach all to yourself. There are 4 restaurants located at the beach. 1. Los Tres Hermanos 2. Tacos Locos 3. Sunset Bar 4. Studio cafe Tuesday night, hotel Hulakai (5min walk) hosts 'taco Tuesday', $10 entry, $1 tacos, live music or dj. It can turn into a bit of a party. Mango Rosa is a resort close by (30 min walk). You can use the pool when you have lunch or dinner there. The food is great, drinks a little pricey. Sundays they have live music and food/drink specials. I can drop you there just ask, but not on Sundays as we go to baseball. Cafe Artesano is a steep hike up the hill (15mins). The walking track is just behind 'jungle dream bar and grill'. They have good coffee, and home baked goods, with a view! Jungle dream bar and grill is just across from the house. Not always open but good food and company when it is. Bar Gaby (not me) is located at the next beach Playa Marsella (20min walk). This home run local restaurant is a gem. Really good food at a good price. Try the ceviche. Ask me for directions.
  • Gaby and Manuel's place was perfect. Steps away from the great surf break at Playa Maderas, they're home is lovely. They were very kind. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area

  • The house was exactly how I imagined except it was much closer to the beach than I thought it would be! The photos really match the space although the bedroom is larger than I expected. It was absolutely awesome to be able to cook and hang out outside and the area was pretty much in the shade all the time except for maybe less than an hour in the morning where the sun was welcoming anyway. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was absolutely lovely to have basic food items (eggs, bread, coffee, milk) in the fridge for us upon arrival. They provided us with both bath as well as beach towels, so no need to bring any. Gaby and Manuel went above and beyond to accommodate us and it was awesome that everyone knew them at the beach restaurant, so we were well taken care of both here and there! There are countless transportation options to get into San Juan if need be, so you really don't need a rental unless you plan on frequent day trips to other areas. I'm already planning my next trip! I highly recommend Gaby and Manuel's place!

  • Best Airbnb we have ever stayed at. 2 minute walk to beautiful beaches and world class surfing. Gabby and Manuel were some of the nicest people we ever met. Thank you so much for making our trip amazing and hope to be back soon!! :)

    Craig2016-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Juan Carlos and Ingrid were very welcoming and the place was absolutely spotless. The apartment was in a great location, very close to the beach. We also took surf lessons from Juan Carlos and I highly recommend him as a teacher. He is very patient and very cautious with children. My children loved his class and were drawn to his personality. In addition, there are a handful of restaurants at the beach that make it easy to get food and drinks without leaving the beach. Many thanks and hope to visit again.

    Sonia2016-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • First of all, let me say that Gaby and Manuel have been super helpful with all our questions about things to do in our stay, how to best get to Playa Maderas from the airport, and everything in between. Juan Carlos and Ingrid were there for any questions we had and were wonderful stand-in hosts! The place was exactly as described and exactly what we needed for a week of unwinding and relaxation. We will definitely be coming back to Nicaragua and hope to even stay here again! Thanks for everything!

    Pareesa2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed with Gaby and Manuel for two weeks and they were the perfect hosts. The apartment is gorgeous and a very short walk to the awesome Playa Maderas. The apartment is perfectly designed for a small family and has everything you could need. Gaby and Manuel gave us rides into San Juan every other day as well as trips to the best family run restaurants in the area. If you're after a little bit of luxury, but with the local feel then this is the place for you. Hope to come back soon!

    Tom & Candice2016-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Gaby, Manuel, baby Estella, the (URL HIDDEN) wonderful. The house was better than we imagined. The outdoor living area was clean and spacious. We cooked a number of meals using the kitchen area--even baking a batch of cookies one night. Gaby and Manuel took us along with them into town (San Juan) to hit the grocery store and the markets. They were super responsive to any and all questions we had and are just a really cool couple. The house is situated at the bottom of 2 VERY large, steep, hills. Nothing made us appreciate that more than watching folks staying in the nearby resorts, having to hike slowly up and down the hill or having to take the "shuttle" to and from the beach. For us, its just maybe a 2-3 minute stroll. On the way, and on the beach itself there are spots to drop in for a few Toñas (a Nicaraguan beer), and food after hanging on the beautiful beach for a few hours. We can't thank Gaby and Manuel enough for their hospitality.

    Cheiku2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Gaby and Manuel's house is wonderful!! Great outdoor living area, lots of space and just steps to the beach!! The beach is beautiful and there are great restaurants to chill and watch the sunset. Bring some groceries if you want to cook at home or buy off the food truck that passes Tuesdays and Fridays. We loaded up from the truck and made some great meals!! Gaby and Manuel are wonderful hosts, very helpful if we had questions and just really nice people. I will definitely come stay again!!

    Casa Sueños is a picturesque tropical getaway located in the private gated community of Paradise Bay. The house is a short 5-10 minute walk from vibrant downtown San Juan del Sur where you will find unique restaurants, bars & the beach! The house features air-conditioning in every room, stainless steel appliances, TV, WiFi, Bose Bluetooth speaker, stunning view of the bay and an infinity pool. For the ultimate vacation hire our cook Katalina and don't worry about a thing.
    Our home is close enough to downtown to walk, yet it is far enough away that you feel like you can sit by the pool during the afternoon & get away from it all. The house features two private bedrooms, each with their own full bath, plus a den. The house sleeps 9. Two in each bedroom, two in the den, and 3 convertible couches in the living room. The 12' X 24' infinity pool is shared with our neighbouring sister house and features a picturesque view of the San Juan del Sur bay.
    Our home is located in the hillside gated community of Paradise Bay. The views of the town and bay from the porch and the poolside are absolutely stunning!
  • When we called Harry to pick up the key he didn't have our reservation on file. He said that Rob never sent him the confirmation email. It took us a while to get into the house because the housekeeper had to clean the house. When we arrived, the housekeeper showed us the house and pool area. It’s a steep walk to the house and pool area, but overall the house is adequate. The house is divided into two living area’s: the main house which has the kitchen, living room, bathroom and loft and then there is the master bedroom which is only accessible from the main patio. The sliding doors are locked with padlocks, which was odd. The house also has an alarm system. We weren't able to use either of the safes (we didn't have the access code for one and the other was had to use). On our last day the housekeeper arrived an hour before our checkout time because she wanted to start cleaning the house for the next guest; we told her that she had to wait until we checked out. She is a bit bossy. Overall the experience was okay; it met our basic needs. We did enjoy the view from our house.

    Lupe2015-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Rob was great! Super responsive and attentive to our needs. His house is beautiful; the photos don't do it justice. Definitely have Katalina cook for you and let Eli show you the sites. He took us to the airport on our last day and showed us all the secret spots. The whole team made our vacation one for the ages:)

    Kimberly2016-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • For those of you who don't want to read, here's the bottom line: Rob's place is unreal! Traveled as a group of 6 guys in our 20s. Location: The place is on a hill just outside the main area of town. about a 10 minute walk to get wherever you want to go (beach, bars, restaurants). It's close enough to walk wherever you need to go but far enough that you get a ton of privacy--perfect for coming back from a day of surfing, recharging, and rallying to go out that night. From the pool you get an awesome view of San Juan. The only warning I'd give is the hill getting up to Rob's is short but steep (didn't matter for us, but if you're the type that doesn't like walking up hills it's something to think about). Also, at night there are dogs that bark on the way up the hill. They mostly stayed on their own properties, but the barking could get a bit intense. The place: The house itself is great as well. There is AC in the bedrooms and main room. Large living area and large, fully stocked kitchen - we cooked our own meals several times. The wifi worked really well and there are wireless speakers so you can have some music bumping (if that's your style). Another big plus: there are water jugs at the house, so no need to worry about buying fresh water. There were one or two blackouts while we were there, but that wasn't specific to Rob's place - there were whole swaths of the town that went out for brief periods. Rob and Eli: The best part about Rob's place is Rob and Eli! Rob is super responsive--there were several times where we had a question, needed supplies (water, garbage bags, etc) and all we had to do was shoot Rob a quick message and he'd figure it out for us. Eli, a driver/surf instructor/tour guide, was also great. He was super knowledgeable - from where to surf to where to get the best fish tacos, and had the best prices! We went surfing with him twice and hiked the Mumbacho volcano. I would 10/10 recommend staying at Rob's place anytime you're in SJDS.

    Jeremy2016-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This house is perfect. Eli and Katalina are probably the coolest people in San Juan del Sur. I highly recommend them and this house. Rob was extremely helpful and available and made the trip a breeze for a group of seven guys. Make sure you say whats up to little Marco who will most likely be hanging by the pool with you. Challenge him to a couple pool games too. The only thing there is to cautious about is the dogs on the walk back to the house, they aren't going to bite you or anything like that but prepared to be a bit shook when you find yourself in the middle of a perros war. Otherwise, book this house! I promise you won't regret it. One of the best weeks for any group of people whether its a family looking for a retreat or a group of people heading to a couple surf destinations and some great nightlife.

    Bailey2016-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Casa Suenos! The house was clean and secure. Rob and his staff were extremely attentive and informative. Catalina is an amazing cook, highly recommend using her for breakfast. We can’t wait to go back!

    Kristen 2015-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and clean place, close to town, and at a great price.

    Jean2014-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place. Great views, great house and brilliant staff. Would highly recommend.

    Caspar2016-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was not only a surfer's dream but was paradise! The view of SJDS was incredible and it took maybe ten minutes at most to get to all the best spots in town. Space was not an issue in this well air-conditioned house of leisure. Rob was more than helpful, frequently offering suggestions and help finding all the best activities around town. He stayed in contact before the trip to ensure there were no problems with my arrival and was always available to answer any questions about where to find the best beaches, booze cruises, and parties. The infinity pool overlooking the city, Rob's hospitality, and the amazing house were all spectacular but could not compare to Katalina's energizing spirit and delicious meals!! When you stay at this paradise you HAVE to hire Katalina. She cooks the most incredible meals and helps keep the place looking pristine while you are off surfing or just enjoying some sun. All in all Rob (and Katalina) made my trip to SJDS unforgettable and it would not have been as epic without them!

    Terracotta floors, locally sourced furniture, handmade fixtures, old world feel. Sounds good anywhere, right? Perch it atop the cliffs, throw in a pool and the most breathtaking sunset ocean views and you're onto a winner with this 3 bedroom villa.
    Set amongst the verdant foothills minutes outside San Juan del Sur with a breathtaking unobstructed vista over the picture perfect Nacoscolo Bay stands El Arbol de Limon. Everything within the house is locally crafted, from the timber for the impressive 5m vaulted ceilings reclaimed from a 100yr old reptile farm to the handmade woven banana furniture. Once you arrive at the wrought iron front gate, pass under the bespoke chandelier and enter through the enormous 3m ceder wood front door it becomes apparent that this is no ordinary house. The property has been designed to minimize it’s impact on this beautiful environment, specifically engineered ceiling vents and fans negate the need for artificial air conditioning in main living areas although, all bedrooms are equipped with their own AC units for your sleeping comfort) and the hot water is an on-demand system partially using solar power. All three bedrooms have their own patio with access from each room through French doors, affording privacy even within the house itself and making this villa perfect for families or groups of friends alike. All rooms join onto the enormous living room and its comfortable couches, 10 seater dining table and a kitchen spacious enough to accommodate all the budding chefs in your group. Should you decided to dine al fresco, there is a Weber BBQ and traditional wood burning stove for your enjoyment, perfect to cook your recently caught fish over your collected driftwood. The charming town of San Juan del Sur is a 25 min walk away and Nacoscolo Bay just 5 mins or if you’re feeling lazy then why not just hang by the pool and enjoy the view and Nicaragua’s world famous Flor de Cana rum, with a lime picked from one of the many lime trees surrounding the house. The property also includes 24/7 security, maid service once a day, laundry room, potable water, cable tv, high speed wifi access and local cell phones. Rentals during Christmas/New Years and Easter are $500/night $3000/week
    El Arbol de Limon is located in the Pacific Marlin neighborhood which is a 25 min walk and 10 min drive from San Juan del Sur. We love the area because it is close enough to town to be convenient and far enough away to feel secluded. There is a private beach 5 min walk down the road and we built the house so that can't see any of the neighbors from the living and pool areas.
  • Bottom line up front: If given the opportunity to occupy this beautiful home again, would we? YES. Fabulous space with remarkable views in a gated, guarded community, with private access and private security. The interior layout is perfect for two couples and 4 children or any combination thereof, and the description accurately depicts the home. The U-Tube video walkthrough was very helpful in our decision. The housekeeper, driver, and property management team were honest, responsive and thorough with all our excursions, transportation, meal preparation, pool cleaning, house cleaning, and clothes washing. At NO time did we ever feel insecure and freely left valuables in the home while we explored. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. With numerous positive aspects, paradise does have a few considerations. When completely closed, the home is extremely warm, forcing guest to open doors and windows to keep cool, which is fine, but keep in mind, open access allows Nicaragua's insects to explore. Double edge sword. Cool, with visitors or Hot, no visitors. In 7 days, we had two harmless encounters with scorpions. Wi-Fi did not work for our entire stay, forcing us to travel to local bar/restaurant hotspots, and making it difficult to communicate with the staff (could not use online translation apps). The housekeeper and driver do not speak english, but the property manager is bi-lingual. The housekeeper/cook did a phenomenal job with meal preparation and her local cooking was very tasty, but a small microwave would be a welcome addition to re-heat leftovers. We lost power for 6 hours total in 7 days, which is about right for a developing nation (and clearly outlined in the description), but every other home on the mountain has a generator, which was a little frustrating listening to all the neighbors continue to celebrate, while we sat in the dark. Hot shower water is extremely limited and was only available 2 or our 7 days for 4 people. Cool (not ice cold) showers seemed to be the norm. Everyone must adjust on how they shower, as 20-30 minutes won't work and water pressure drops quickly. Also, keep in mind the steepness and length of the walk to town as every drive will cost $20 round trip. (a good deal, since a round trip taxi is $30). Not a negative per-say, but certainly a budget consideration when doing the math. All in all, a great home, wonderful trip, awesome staff, and worthy of a return visit.

    James2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing experience! We were two families (4 adults and 4 kids ages 3-7) and this house could not have been more perfect. The location offers easy access to multiple day trips, and SJDL is a great town for coffee shops, restaurants and conveniences. We felt very safe the entire time there. The pictures don't do the house justice - the 'wow' factor cannot be captured in words or print, you need to be there to appreciate how serene, well laid out and furnished this home is. The house and grounds were immaculately clean. The couple that looks after the place was so helpful. They live in a separate small house on the property but are very quiet, and we had the entire main house to ourselves. The pool was cleaned each morning, the yards looked after, and the entire house cleaned every day. We were there for a week and our sheets and towels were changed midway without us asking. The property manager was very helpful, even arranging for massages by the pool, and dinners cooked at home every night. Thanks to Arbol di Limon, our two families had a completely stress-free holiday, and that's a great accomplishment when there are 4 little kids.

    Diya2015-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house itself is gorgeous! The view is unworldly! Karla and Yadar are two of the nicest people I've ever met in my entire life. Having them onsite for whatever we needed proved very beneficial. I nearly cried saying goodbye to them. But getting to the house from Liberia, CR was challenging. We had to switch cars THREE TIMES, showed our passport SEVEN DIFFERENT TIMES, but it all worked out in the end and I'm only mentioning it for others considering trip from Liberia. The walk to the beach was one of the low points of the trip. The hill is as steep as other users describe. And definitely not a "five minute walk." The walk to town was never attempted due to an even more steep hill. But this is solved by having a driver (Yadar) onsite. But on the flip side there wouldn't be such an amazing view without such a big hill to deal with, so in the end it's worth it. The power only went out once during our week stay. The wind was very intense rattling shutters and actually opening doors in the middle of the night, but by the end I was used to it. Was nearly pick pocketed in town by a kid, but caught him in the act and chased him off. No restaurants in town were outstanding, but most were good or slightly better. Speaking Spanish has never proved more vital.

    Rick2016-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in this house. The house was amazing with a great view. It is very well located near the town of SanJuan del Sur but far enough to be away from the noise and lights of the town. The beach nearby is very nice and private alghough you have to walk to get there. Power went out in the block during one of our nights and was frustrating to see other people had power around the neighborhood.

    Sebastian2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • The villa was as beautiful as the pictures look (the views cannot be beat!). However, the neighborhood caused some logistical issues that we wish we would have been aware of. I would recommend booking- just be aware of the following: First, the times provided for walks into town and to the beach are underestimated. We timed a 40 min walk into town and 10 min to the private beach-- for only the downhill stretch. The hills are steeper than you can imagine and virtually impossible to climb up in flipflops. Obviously this isn't the fault of the homeowners, but I would definitely recommend renting a car. As soon as we did, our lives got a lot easier! You can cab in from town, but it's $10 per car each time, and at least $40-50 round trip to the good beaches... we calculated that a car would be cheaper for our size group. Second, the electricity and water are very spotty. Again, not the fault of the homeowners, but we wish we would have been aware. Most days we didn't get to shower right away (there is a reserve tank, but we were cautioned to use it sparingly) - and lights/wifi went out at least once a day. A note on the host: The house manager, Denise, was great to work with leading up to the trip. She provided us information about the town, and offered to book activities and shuttles for us. However, when we had troubles the first day, she got very defensive, which was uncomfortable. Luckily she escalated the issues to the homeowner, who was very helpful. The house keeper, Carla, is great- very quiet, but keeps the place absolutely beautiful.

    Jessica2015-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our host Denise was very helpful and we enjoyed her very much! The house was every bit of what was listed on Airbnb. It is breathtaking! We had a personal driver so we didn't have any issues with driving into town but I feel that some people might have that issue if they didn't. Either way, the compromise was staying closer to town or staying at a place like El Arbol, that's a beautiful home. The amenities of having the pool with the view of the ocean, your own access to the private beach is truly unmatched. I will definitely stay at El Arbol again when I come back to San Juan!

    One of the most modern villa's in the area, elegantly appointed and furnished. Magnificent views from the entire house of the Pacific... you can even see the curve of the earth. Other homes boast "ocean views" but from afar - however this Villa has the real deal views. The villa has an unique large open main entertaining area which blends the inside with the vast outside terraces through two 20 ft sliding glass walls. For the gourmet, you also have an exceptionally equipped kitchen.
    For those discerning travelers who wish to have a ultra modern style house for their vacation - this is it. There are over 3000 sq ft of terrace which runs seamless with the house from inside to out. The main living area has two 20 ft sliding glass walls. The infinity pool has a lower terrace area with lounge furniture and a water wall effect on the overflow from the pool. There are 3 very large bedrooms all with exceptionally large en suite bathrooms - one bedroom doubles as my office but has a queen wall unit bed to lower when needed as a true bedroom. Plus there is a powder room off the main living area. As most of the house is all one level with the exception of the entry area ( which is only 6 inches difference to the driveway ... it can easily be configured if needed to allow wheelchair access. As there are no stairs at all in the house it is very suitable as well for rentals where elderly people are included. The 3 bedrooms are all with queen beds and have very spacious bathrooms ( actually huge ) en suite and all with large glass walk in showers - the master bathroom has a whirlpool bath as well. Black granite counters are throughout the house ( bathrooms and kitchen )... The Kitchen is very large and modern and extremely well appointed for cooking or entertaining. Plenty of appliances and gadgets for any gourmet. We have an outside dining table for 6 plus two additional glass and aluminum tables ...with chairs for up to 12 persons. There is a double lounge chair and two single lounge chairs pool side. We installed solar terrace lights outside ( around 30 or more ) all around the terraces and also the main driveway. Plus we put in led landscaping lights which light up the Neem trees on both sides of the house and the one huge bonzai like tree in front of the pool ocean view... looks amazing at night.
    The Villa location is in the gated, secure development of Pacific Marlin, which is situated just to the north of the town bay. In publicity pictures of San Juan del Sur you can see the large Christ Statue on the mountain. This is Pacific Marlin. My house is sihttps://www.airbnb.ca/manage-listing/6162296/ is located behind the Jesus statue facing the Pacific Ocean instead of the town bay. Pacific Marlin is the small "mountain" on the north side of San Juan accessed via the Chocolata road by car via the district of Talenguera. We much enjoy this location for the close proximity to town and yet the quietness it allows, as the town can become a bit loud at times especially on the weekends. And the view from my house is simply amazing. How many homes can say that ships like the Queen Victoria park in front of their living room ? We can also provide driving instructions from Managua airport to SJDS and also from SJDS to the house.
  • We had a great time staying in San Juan deal Sur. The house completely exceeded our expectations. The view was beautiful and we spent every night sitting outside by the pool, playing games or just talking. The layout of the house was perfect for our group. The rooms are separate and very private so each couple had their own space. Nelson, the man who lives on the property, was very accommodating, helpful, and went out of his way to make us comfortable. I highly recommend staying in this house if you plan to visit SJDS.

  • Excellent stay! Excellent service! Excellent house! A+ across the board!! Thank you!!

    Courtney2015-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Victor’s house was great. The house is as described and accurately reflected in the pictures. The views from the living room, infinity pool and terrace are fantastic. We felt safe given the security guards and limited access. House is well-appointed, comfortable beds, showers, couch, chairs, etc. Victor plans to take care of some functionality details during the month of September 2017 (i.e. internet speed and connectivity throughout the house). Note that any house you rent in San Juan del Sur (SJDS) is going to have bugs (i.e. ants, spiders, scorpions, etc.) no matter how much you fumigate. If you are afraid or disgusted by bugs, the tropics are not the place for you. Also note that the tiles in the terrace are slippery when wet, so if you have kids, they need to be careful. Set your expectations for a developing country like Nicaragua and this house will exceed them by 100x

    Rolando2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent all the way. From the communication with the host (prompt, polite, accurate) to the actual property which is even more stunning than the pictures show. The view is breathtaking and the rooms are very well appointed, bathrooms are spacious and at the level of 5 star hotels. Super well appointed kitchen if you like to cook (has anything you can imagine) and is just an amazing place to relax. We did not even want to leave the house to visit the beaches because it was so comfortable and relaxing. One of the best if not the best place you can stay at in SJDS

    Marina 2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience with Victor was great. He communicated well and offered a lot of information on the location of the home as well as the neighborhood. Great directions too, by the way! This was our first time to Nicaragua and the home was fairly easy to find. It was group of 6 of us who stayed there and it was perfect! Three of us spoke fluent Spanish, so there was no language barrier with Nelson, the gentleman who takes care of the home and who greeted us. He is "on-call" 24hrs/day as he and his family lives in a room just a few yards away, up the driveway. He is very attentive and is willing to help with anything you need. The home is modern, very beautiful and the view is absolutely amazing. The kitchen was open and we got very good use out of it as we cooked (and grilled) there several times. It's close enough to town, and from what I've seen on other listings, this was by far very convenient to travel to/from town and to nearby beaches. We definitely recommend staying here and will be on the top of our list when we visit San Juan del Sur again.

    Denisse2015-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this place. The house and views were amazing. Victor was extremely helpful and responsive. He was upfront and honest about everything. The caretakers, Nelson and Jocelyn, took great care of us and were very helpful. They showed us where to find different things in town and even cooked a few meals for us (highly recommended if you want to try local food!). We highly recommend this place!

    Matt2017-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wish I could leave a more positive review about this place but all the problems the house has overshadows the great view and overall coolness of the house.. Leaky sink in kitchen, Internet was impossible to use for anything work related and very inconsistent, leaky sealing in bedroom, no Working A/C in the "master" NO HOT WATER was the straw that broke the camels back. Oh and when we came home mid day on Saturday there was a realtor showing the house with all of our belongings inside.. They scurried off rather quickly when we arrived which was alarming and unprofessional to say the least..I'm assuming the house has an absently owner who simply doesn't want to invest more money but other than this laundry list of problems the house had a great view, the caretakers were amazing, nelsons wife even stepped in as a nanny to help with our son.

    Dan2016-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house , beautiful view. It's better if you have your own car as you are on a hill and taxis can be expensive in this area. Nelson the house keeper was really helpful and a super nice guy ! Rooms are really big and nice, the terrasse is huge. Victor the owner helped us in the organization thanks to very precise indications. I would for sure recommend this house.

    The Cueva (25m2 inside + 12m2 covered terrace) is part of a intimate rustic resort on a small hill close to the docks. From the terrace of The Cueva you have a splendid view of the bay of San Juan. Quiet, but only 200 m from the beach and 350 m from the restaurant area and center! The Cueva has a fully equipped kitchen and a new shower area. We are situated in a typical Nicaraguan neighborhood. There are some small shops within 50m where you can buy your basic food and drinks.
    The Cueva is part of a rustic resort of 3000m2, with only 5 buildings (9 cabins/apartments). There are several comunal terraces with BBQ facilities and great views of the bay. In less than a 10 min walk you are in the restaurant and bar area. There is a lot of life on the street, so walking back in the evening is no problem. The caretakers, Fernando and his wife Rebeca, and the night caretaker, Dennis, are friendly persons who always try to help you out.
    The neighborhood Camilo Ortega, popularly called "La Planta" is the original neighborhood of the fishermen. People live on the street, you hear music and in the early morning roosters. There are several small shops in 50m where you can buy your basic necesities, and as well fresh fish every day! People are friendly and respectful.
  • Quiet cabañas on a hill overlooking SJDS, so beautiful. Great little apartments within walking distance to everything in town. Very clean, nice kitchenette, absolutely perfect.

    Paige2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is brilliant location in a friendly neighbourhood. The bed in the room was extremely comfortable and the views from the hammock are gorgeous. The host is very easy to contact and his directions were brilliant and spoke to us on arrival. We would come again, but perhaps not in this room as the ceiling was very low which meant my husband who is well over 6ft kept having to duck. It also made the room a little stuffy.

    Paula2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jan-Luc and his caretakers are more than hosts-they really look out for you as family. The location of this property is perfect! You can walk everywhere-but you have some peace from the noisy part of downtown San Juan. The cueva is basic and rustic-but perfect for a simple and comfortable place to rest your head. Also- the large and expansive property provides many outdoor spaces to enjoy the awesome view!

    Sara2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was beyond our expectations. Jan-Luc was always available by email and the onsite staff (Rebeca, Fernando, and Denis) were amazing. We felt safe and well cared for. We especially enjoyed the outdoor seating which we used as a living and dining room. We loved the view of the Bay and almost constant breezes. Sitting out there, staying dry and enjoying some short rainstorms was wonderful. Highly recommended!

    gary2017-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is hands down the best spot in San Juan del Sur and one of our most amazing stays in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. We stayed in the 'Cueva', which has a beautiful terras view of the bay and the PERFECT hammock. Everything was clean, comfortable, and Jan-Luc and Dennis were so helpful and friendly! We would highly recommand this place to anyone who is looking for a quiet and beautiful spot, close to the center.

    Lara2017-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here! Jan-Luc was there upon arrival and was very helpful! The place had amazing views of the bay, was within walking distance of the town centre (about 10 minutes) and was very clean! The room was also very cozy and perfect for couples. We would definitely stay again if we ever go back to San Juan del Sur!!

    Jennifer2017-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot a bit outside of the downtown core. We loved not being right in the bustle of it all. The staff were really nice though did not speak English (& we didn't speak Spanish) but that was nothing that (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Translate couldn't solve. The spot was in line with what we were expecting and the hammock/patio area was perfect for relaxing (and hanging laundry). Would definitely recommend this as an alternative to a hostel!

    Michelle2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was absolutely perfect for us. It's very close to everything in sjds but secluded in a local neighborhood off to the side. The room is like cabin camping. It's rustic but close to nature. There's no a/c, but we didn't need it and no hot water but we wouldn't have used it if there had been. There's a view of the bay and was a lovely breeze the whole time we were there. The windows all open westward so we were able to sleep in and woke to the sounds of chirping birds, roosters in the distance, and surf.

    Best views of the bay. Great base if you are looking to party and surf.

  • It was easy to contact Hokato and we appreciate that it was fast. Our guest showed us everything in the condo and we felt lucky to be there with the awesome view. The condo was as description and a little bit more than we expected because of the balcony, the view and it was very well situated. We didnt hear anything about their nieghbord and we slept very well with the AC and there were no noise at all.

    Benoît2015-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great location in SJDS within walking distance to the beach and night life. We had a car and were able to park right in front of the condo building which was very convenient. The host and building staff were friendly and accommodating. Like others have said, the negative of this condo is the noise but we were out late at night and even if we weren't, ear plugs would have been sufficient. AC worked great during our stay. We would stay here again!

    Kyle2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place was central to everything going on with San Juan del Sur! Very spacious to accommodate a large group. Well equipped kitchen. Beautiful views!

    Joshua2016-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Hokato was great from start to finish answering all of my questions. The condo is in the perfect location to access the beach and all the nightlife. The noise from the nearby bars and clubs were definitely an issue but I knew this in advance and was able to prepare. In the end Friday and Saturday nights were very loud but Sunday and Monday were not an issue at all. I still slept very well. I would highly reccomend San Juan Del Sur and Hokato's condo. We had an amazing time!

    Eugenia2016-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very noisy place (it seems that you sleep in a nightclub) but good stay overall.

    Adrien2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about our stay here. Super cozy condo, close to everything, which made it so easy to go out at night to restaurants, bars, etc. Check in was nice and simple. I would recommend staying here, you cannot beat the location. Especially if you're trying to enjoy the town, and find easy transportation to the local beaches. Beds were super comfy and the AC and fans were a plus.

    Belen2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful condo with stunning views of the ocean. I could sit by the dining table all day just staring out into the Pacific Ocean... Location was convenient - beach, stores, & restaurants were within walking distance. Photos were accurate, and nice amenities including washer & dryer. Downside was a club nearby was a bit loud but not a problem if you are a late sleeper. We were greeted by Alba who was friendly & easy going. Would recommend for anyone visiting SJDS!

    Siew Yen2015-07-03T00:00:00Z

    This room has one queen size bed and one single bed, private bathroom and AC. It is located ocean side. Enjoy our stunning ocean view while taking a dip in our pool.
    Our cozy & colorful boutique hotel is located up the hills, a few miles away from San Juan del Sur. This is the ideal place to relax by the pool, surrounded by nature.
    Hotel is located 4km North of San Juan del Sur. Town is within 1 hour walking distance. There is nice rocky beach ten minutes walking distance where you can swim, snorkel or even spearfish.
  • was made to feel very welcome after arriving in the pouring rain. the room was spacious and view was amazing. Enjoyed the food in the restaurant and loved their Labradors.

    Simone2016-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • El Jardin was a wonderful place for my wife, 8 month old, and I to stay that was far enough outside of the craziness of SJdS yet close enough to get into town in minutes as well as the beaches north of town (Nacascolo, Maderas, Marsella, Majagual). The pool with Sunset views was perfect for cooling off and catching a Sunset. I'd recommend this to anyone traveling with families looking to be close enough to the action but wanting some peace and quiet...

    Bret2016-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • This hotel has an amazing view and is so quiet and secluded. The staff are incredibly accommodating and were happy to help with anything. The fish tacos were incredible. The only downside was the road and track leading to the hotel - I understand that this is not the hotel's fault. $8 in a taxi into town and the track is almost undrivable. Lead to an uncomfortable journey.

    Laura2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot! Quiet, scenic, friendly hosts, and of course breakfast with a view. About 10min from San Juan Del sur, but well worth getting away from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommend!

  • Excellent spot! Beautiful view

    Olga 2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time at El Jardin. The pool and the A/C were a welcome relief from the heat, and the views and the rooms were wonderful. It was definitely a little farther from town than I had realized - an hour walk seemed very feasible in idea, but the heat and the steep unpaved mountain road made it a much less appealing option, so cabs were definitely the mode of transport. That being said, it was so wonderful to be tucked away from the city with that kind of a view. The owners were out of town, so their friend Angela was running the place in their absence, and she could not have been more kind or more helpful. Also 2 beautiful and calm black labs live on the property which was a definite added bonus in our book.

San Juan beach is perfect for a morning dip or a sunset walk, and there is also world class surfing to be had at several beaches located a short distance from town. There are many other activities in town and nearby including fishing, whale watching, turtle tours, zip lining, yoga, horseback rides and other sports. And, if you want a break from beach life, there are day trips available to nearby Ometepe and Granada.
  • Beautiful three nights in San Juan! :-) My partner and I stayed in this apartment for three nights and we were incredibly pleased. Great location, a few steps from San Juan beach, located on a calmer street than the main streets of San Juan which was great. You can walk and be everywhere in the center of San Juan within minutes! The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Tracy was helpful and gave us tons of tips on what to do around the city, where to rent scooters, etc. You could literally reach her within minutes. Consider taking the air conditioning if you don't like sleeping when it's warm, because without it it was quite hot! :-) Thanks Tracy!

    Véro2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a great spot! The location is real good, within a 5 minute walk (max) of anything but yet its not the "center" of town. The apartment has a shared porch with the next door apartment. The porch is great with some top of the line rocking chairs. Tracy and Joseph were super nice and helpful with anything that was needed!

    menachem2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • We found this place as the perfect base for our stay in San Juan del Sur! The studio was comfortable, clean, everything felt brand new, nicely decorated, nice bathroom, towels and the pillows are super cosy! The location is perfect to explore the town and to get transportation to the beaches. There is no aircon, but there is a fan that kept us freshed and for the price they charge it is very good value. The guys are very friendly, kind and great at communication... Proper superhosts! The only thing we didn't like is that our schedule didn't let us stay longer!

    Madelein2017-05-11T00:00:00Z

  • AMAZING!!! We literally booked our 2 night stay totally last minute at 1pm on the day of & were contacted straight away & fortunately could check in earlier which was just the best! From the moment they contacted me & we met with them, Tracy & Joseph were an absolute pleasure! They responded instantly to any queries we had (including providing us an extra fan as it was very hot!) & provided an incredible reccomendations list for the area which was one of the most relevant, fabulous ones I've seen & included "best beers" etc - we LOVED all of the reccomendations we tried! The studio itself was spacious with great facilities (kitchen perfectly kitted out), books, table & chairs & lovely complimentary soap & toiletries in the bathroom. Town & beach on the doorstep of this place :) Thanks for a perfect stay guys 100% reccomend!!!

    Jessie2017-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • We've been traveling for about 6 months now and this place was easily the best value for money we've had so far. The apartment is gorgeous and has everything you might need. There's a full kitchen with a great fridge, a ceiling fan and an extra fan, towels, awesome towels and extra towels for the beach, a clean bathroom and a good bed. The apartment is beautifully finished and has some great art on the wall too. The apartment has a nice balcony with a view on the water and two nice rocking chairs to relax in It's not more than a block away from all the action but quiet enough to escape the noise. Tracy is an absolute stellar host, she communicated quickly, had everything arranged for our arrival and had a great list of things to do in San Juan del Sur. Oh and did I already mention the complementary bottle of rum? I could see myself living here!

    Arden2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at this place. The location was great and very close to the best beach. The studio has a nice bed and a properly working kitchen which allowed us to cook our own meals. The terace/balcony was a delight as it provided a dry place outdoors (we visited the place in roaming season). Communication with Tracy and Joseph was easy and the provided a water tank and a welcome drink. We would definitely stay at this place again!

    Christel2017-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • This studio is the perfect place to stay in San Juan del Sur. It's right next to the beach and all the restaurants, bars and shops in town. It is clean, modern and beautiful, and best of all, Tracy and Joseph are amazing hosts! They gave us lots of tips about beaches, bars and restaurants and I can say they know the best places un town. 100% recommended. Thanks again!

    Beautiful beachfront condo with great views of the bay, close to restaurants & nightlife. The exact area was featured on the cover of Lonely Planet Nicaragua. If you like the nightlife, this location is perfect, next to a popular night spot so it can get noisy at nights. Great amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet, two balconies facing the ocean, 24 Hour Security, back-up generator, etc. Please note, there will be additional fees for excessive electricity use.
    Condo has tile throughout and is well decorated with local Nicaraguan art and pottery. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi type tub. The unit has a safe you can lock your valuables as well as a keyed closet one can use to lock larger items. There is 24 hour security as well as a back generator in case the power goes out which does happen in Nicaragua. There is a laundry closet as well. Maid service upon request during your stay for an additional fee. Please note that the condo is located in a very popular area on the beach front and there is a night club next door so if you are looking for a peaceful, tranquil escape, our place is probably not your best option.
    Our building is located in the heart of the beachfront area so there is always a lot of people walking the street, going to the beach or eating at the dozens of restaurants that are right outside your door. It gets loud at night due to local night clubs and even some restaurants that occasionally have live music. San Juan del Sur is a bit of a party town.
  • Great place to stay with excellent service from Armando. The condo is excellent located and no noise complains in the master bedroom!

    Loes2017-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • The prefect location in San Juan del Sur! With that said, due to its centralized location we noticed it got a little loud at night. The apartment itself is clean and spacious. Armando was a great communicator and offered several good recommendations of things to do in the area. Awesome value overall!

    Teresa2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay and the place was nice. My only warning would be to be prepared to pay extra afterwards for going over the average power usage. We are being charged $24. We knew beforehand so we were intentional about turning off the AC, fans and lights when we weren't using them. We only used the AC when we were in the living room and at night because if you don'(URL HIDDEN) HOT. We had to spend a morning in because it was storming. In my opinion I would rather pay a little more and not have to worry about how much we are using (even though we always turn everything off when not using) because in this situation, we did worry about it and ended up being charged anyways. There wasn't anything we could have done differently to have made it decrease other than just not using it at all. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay. Just be prepared to possibly have extra cost.

    Ashley2017-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Armando is a great host, very fluid and constant communication throughout the service. The apartment is in good condition and is equipped with everything you'll need.. from a wine bottle opener, to a jacuzzi! You will have an amazing view of the beach from dusk till dawn and you'll be steps away from restaurants, coffeshops, ice cream and bars. Fully recommended!

    Gabriel2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoy staying at Armando's apartment. It was centrally located near restaurants, front of the beach, and with easy access to activities in the area.

  • The house is located in center of SJDS, where we need to find everything. It was perfectly clean. I and my family enjoyed the sea just cross the road. I was worry about noisy in midnight, it was okay in main bed room like other guests said. Armando is really good communicate host!

  • The place is noisy as advertised, so be aware this is not an early to bed quiet sleep place. However, the location is fantastic with amazing views. Great for swimming all day, cocktails on patio for sunset, dinners and bars walking distance at night.

    Dustin2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Armando’s Beach Front Condominium in San Juan del Sur is a great location to relax and unwind. Conveniently located on Paseo del Rey, it is close to restaurants, bars, clubs, and overlooks the crescent moon bay. The Airbnb description of the condo is very accurate, the open floor plan is spacious, the A/C works well, there is on demand hot water, an ample stone shower and sinks for two in the master bathroom, and a lovely jacuzzi tub in the guest bathroom. The place is very clean and has modern appliances in the kitchen, a washer and dryer, nice furnishings, and everything necessary for a great vacation in one of the best towns on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. It has great lighting, dimmers and track lights, local art work throughout the space, and is tastefully designed to make anyone feel right at home. It was our first Airbnb experience, and definitely a place we would love to visit again.

    Casa Colina is a short 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants, bars, and the beach. The casa has some of the best views in town and comes with an amazing infinity pool. Place is great for surfers, couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.
    House features an open air living environment with a floor plan that flows onto the front veranda through 4 gorgeous custom built wooden glass doors that do not obstruct the views of San Juan del Sur Bay, the quaint town and surrounding jungle. You can expect to hear a wide variety of birds and the occasional howler monkey.
    Casa Colina is located inside the gated community of Paradise Bay, known for its close proximity to the town center and its jaw-dropping views.
  • What a house! Me and my travel mates loved everything about this rental. It had beautiful views, pool was incredible and Katalina's cooking was superb. Highly recommend. We didn't wanted to leave this amazing home. Towe was great with communication throughout the whole experience. The hill up the house is steep but we took a cab most days and it was $3-4. And it's a 5min walk to town. Not bad. All in all, this is the best airbnb I've ever stayed at. 10/10

  • Wonderful, beautifully decorated house with amazing views and great common / porch space to relax and spend time. Towe was very responsive and answered all of our questions in advance and during our stay. Katalina, who showed us the house and cooked for us one night, was a gem! Walk into town is 5-10 minutes, so perfect for a stay in San Juan del Sur without the noise in town!

  • Great place, amazing view. Everyone was extremely helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. Would highly recommend to anyone

  • Everything was great actually. Towe was very kind and we got to meet him at the very end of our trip. He always replied quickly to whatever question I had. Everything was in place and he made the connection for transportation we needed to go from the airport in Managua to The House in San Juan del Sur. The house's very nice, and everything was in place there. instructions, phone numbers, etc etc. I highly recommend this place.

  • Wonderful spot. Very beautiful.

  • My best AirBnB experience to date. So often you find properties that don't live up to the pictures or description. This place is one of the few that surpass what you expect you're getting. The rooms are incredibly large and comfortable. The space is so well equipped that we found ourselves hanging out in the house more than we expected. The housekeeper/cook/property manager was a true gem and made us comfortable and at home. She even shopped and cooked us two amazing meals. This place is why AirBnB is so amazing. We were devastated when it came time to leave, and we will surely return. Don't miss it.

    Christopher2016-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Towe's place was fabulous! The hill up to the house is a bit steep but fairly short making the walk into town very manageable (we did it multiple times each of the 4 nights we were there). Also, make use of Katalina if you have the chance. She's the caretaker, an amazing person, and she makes the best meals, don't miss out! And Towe was full of local advice. Definitely recommend this place!

    Grant2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing beautiful view on sanjuan bay! Quiet house comfortable! Everything you need in the kitchen. Katalina the housekeeper is super friendly she is very nice and helpful!

    Floating high above the perfect half moon bay of San Juan del Sur, with a breathtaking panorama of the sea, the beach, the village and the verdant hills beyond. Clean modern lines, walls of glass framing million- dollar ocean views, cantilevered out into space…. My place is close to nightlife, the city center, family-friendly activities, and public transport. You’ll love my place because of the views, the coziness, and the location. My place is good for couples.
    The benefits of this location are the views, the privacy, the security and the tranquility. No town noise. •Swimming pool, BBQ and huge terrace with outdoor dining and lounges •AC in rooms •Room have coffee maker, microwave, kitchen bench, mini fridge •Automatic generator - kicks in whenever power goes out in in the town, which happens a lot and allows all services (WiFi, TVs, fridges and AC etc) to continue to work properly. •24 hour caretaker and security. •Breakfast service and food is not offered. •Free wifi •Daily cleaning service included. •Laundry (small fee) •Smart TVs with Netflix, Youtube etc. •Outdoor bathtub on the terrace of each room. •Access to a comfortable taxi with negotiated rates to and from town if the hill is too steep for you! The living room and main kitchen is closed to public. Looking forward to hosting you. John
  • We had a wonderful stay at this place! The bed was extremely comfy, which can be hard to find in Nica. The bathroom was huge, with a shower that has a million dollar view. The kitchen is perfect for preparing small snacks while sitting on the deck watching the sunset. The staff were incredibly helpful. They always helped us out when we needed it. The pool and main deck area is absolutely amazing. Just like the photos. This place is walkable to town, and we walked to town most days, however just note that the hill is STEEP up to this house. You need to be in good shape. Otherwise, just rent a motorbike or car. Taxi's were 100 cordobas in the day, and 150 at night. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Much better than we could have imagined! We've told all of our friends and family about this place, and hope to bring them to see it again! The house keeper is wonderful, friendly and a great cook. The house is immaculately clean and easy to find. We will most definitely be back.

    bree2017-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here! At the top of the San Juan Del Sur hill, we were surrounded by the most incredible views. This place is for the traveler that wants to be close enough to the action & hustle of the city but also who wants some peace and quite. It's a hard hike up to the house, so I recommend renting a bike or car when staying here. The host were extremely hospitable and responsive to our requests!

    Jessica2016-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place - we really enjoyed it. Bathtub with a view is epic. Staff is super friendly and helpful.

    Arseni2017-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about our stay was fantastic. Erik our host picked us up from the Malecon and directed us to the gated community this house resides on. Honestly the pictures do not do justice to how beautiful this house and location was. On top of the fantastic views and amazing house, Erik our host was awesome! We want to buy this house and employ Erik with the purchase :D

    Ryan2016-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • The home is absolutely gorgeous, with a million dollar view of SJDS. The staff at the home are more than accommodating and they're always willing to help with whatever. The pictures of the room and home are exactly as expected plus more - the pics really don't do it justice. In terms of location, it was a great walking distance to the center of town. The home is located on a very steep hill, so we always walked down the hill to town but had arranged a car to bring us back up. Eric and staff were always so willing to help us with transportation. Great place and we will definitely make it back here next time in SJDS!

    Kannetha2017-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at on the hill! Our room was very clean. The shower (with hot water) is great, and the outdoor tub overlooking the ocean is amazing. Breakfast was lovely, and they cater to special dietary requests! Aiby, the cook and cleaner, was absolutely lovely and it was great that she spoke English. We went down to the town to check out restaurants, it's about a 15 minute walk if you take to shortcut (down a grassy hill). I would not suggest walking back up the hill (it is extremely steep), however it's more because there is a rougher neighbourhood that you have to pass through (we were yelled at and it made us very uncomfortable). I would definitely not walk through at night either, take a taxi, the most be paid was $7 U.S. All in all, our stay was fantastic. The photos don't do the views justice, you have to see them for yourself!

    Alexis2017-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing experience, it was my boyfriend first time in Nicaragua and he loved it, great place to relax and a romantic getaway. Our host Erick, John and Abi were very nice and friendly, the room the view and the entire house is just perfect to enjoy the nature of San juan del sur. Definitely we are coming back soon, thank you!

    Stefano2016-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • House is accurate to description and pictures. Great place to stay with amazing views of San Juan Del Sur. Would definitely stay here again.

    Rosalie2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was just as I imagined. We rented a Polaris due to the house being up a very very very steep hill. (That was scary driving up at night) the view and sunsets on the hammock are dreamy. Watch out for the geckos Beautiful, perfect house that made us feel right at home.

    jennifer2017-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great house!! Fantastic views and very friendly and communicative hosts

    Hussein2017-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, with an amazing view! 100% recommended!!

    Carolina2017-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Vista del Rey. The house itself is a beautiful getaway, with amazing views, super comfortable. It is close to town and beaches, but if you are afraid of heights or steep cliffs it might not be a good fit. Definitely feels less scary with a 4x4 vehicle, but the roads up can be confusing and narrow. The caretaker and security person were lovely and helpful and so were our hosts. Would definitely recommend.

    Diana2017-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Eduardo and Luisa were wonderful hosts. The staff on site are extremely friendly and helpful. The views from the house are incredible! You have an amazing, picturesque view of San Juan Del Sur and the Christ statue. The sunsets at this location are beautiful. If you are looking for privacy and relaxation by the pool, this is the place for you. The house is very secluded and quiet. Taxis into town were between $15-20 U.S. but we're worth it for the privacy. I would recommend using a taxi with 4 x 4 as there is one steep hill to get to the house. I would highly recommend this house for your stay in SJDS.

  • Great location, great hosts

  • Good Place to stay! Wifi was a Bit Slow but Is going to be fixed!

    Stefanie2017-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Overall, I would stay here again. The inside of the apartment is really nice and spacious. The location is perfect, and there is a huge terrace to sit outside and enjoy the quiet outdoors. The wifi was really slow almost always (< 1 mbps), although late at night I would get up to 5 mbps. Also, the immediate surroundings were not so nice and very muddy when it rained. After the ongoing construction is complete, the place will be even better. Thank you very much.

    Gorka2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was immaculately clean, and was luxurious especially when compared to most other places we stayed while in Nicaragua. Brand new stainless appliances, good A/C, comfy beds, clean and working bathrooms/showers and virtually no bugs! The house is located on a hill in a traditional neighborhood where many Nica families live. It's very secure and only a few minutes walk from everything that San Juan del Sur has to offer. Bastien is in charge of the house and also runs a drug shop called O'Shop, which we also loved visiting. I highly recommend both the home and O'Shop!

    Kim2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great private house that is newly renovated! Location is downtown SJDS. Walking distance to all things in town. Just as described through online post.

  • Great place, close to everything. House was clean and safe, Mahe was a really nice host, talkative and super friendly. I will take his place again if I go back.

    Stephanie2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • A stone's throw from the center of town but still quiet and cozy. Beautiful house. Ill recommend it to anyone I know visiting.

    Wesley2017-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • House is clean,modern, and new, location good except for muddy path/driveway to door (in rainy season). Sleeps 4, but only 2 stools and countertop to eat at, no table. Wifi really slow. No hot showers, but the water isn't bad - not cold certainly, tepid. Nice to have 2 bathrooms, both with showers. Has nice deck with rockers.
