San Juan Del Sur house description

Only a two minute easy walk to the beach and a 7 minute drive to San Juan del Sur, Villa Pavela provides a cozy, affordable and care free setting for a relaxing, authentic, tropical beach vacation.

Perched on a ridge in Remanso Bay, Villa Pavela offers a balanced panoramic view stretching across the Pacific Ocean and jungle covered hills. The surrounding valley is rich in all sorts of wildlife such as howler monkeys, iguanas, hummingbirds and flocks of parakeets which can be seen flying by the house daily. We landscaped our garden with a variety of tropical plants and fruit trees, including, banana, papaya and a lime tree. The lime leaves are a wonderfully aromatic spice.

Our Villa design inspiration came from the traditional Nicaraguan open air living concept and the way it allows one to closely engage with the surrounding environment. The house layout uses natural ventilation for cooling purposes however, ceiling fans are provided throughout the house and the master bedroom is equipped with air conditioning, just in case. We also drew on the Colonial Spanish tradition of heavy white masonry walls, ceramic roof tiles, exposed roof beams, caña ceilings and terra cotta floors. We used a more contemporary architectural vocabulary to express the natural beauty of fine cedar screens and polished concrete counters studded with hand picked beach pebbles. Yes, my kids and I actually picked each and every one...
The house structural design was based on North American seismic and high wind design principles, which ensures structural integrity and safety.

Daily cleaning, gardening and security are provided by our staff who live in separate quarters on the property. Our kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs but since you are on vacation you may want to request our cooking and shopping services. Eliza, our home caretaker and resident chef can even stock-up the fridge and have a traditional Nicaraguan supper waiting when you arrive.

The kitchen opens to the outdoor covered lanai, which will most likely become your holiday headquarters during your stay at Villa Pavela. It is a shaded oasis where you can relax in traditional Nicaraguan rocking chairs or hammocks while enjoying the sweeping views and sounds of the Pacific ocean and jungle covered mountains to the north.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and includes an en-suite bathroom and access to a private patio overlooking the cordilleras. The second bedroom has a double bed, a 3-person bunk bed and a private shower/change area. A separate powder room is accessible from the screened hallway. All bathrooms and the kitchen have on-demand hot water. There is an outdoor shower for a quick refreshing wash after a day spent at the beach...

We have provided many modern must-haves for our guests such as: Wi-Fi internet access throughout the house and grounds, flat screen TV, entertainment hub with a library of over 200 movies and a music media center. For guests who prefer old-school style entertainment, good old fashioned board games, puzzles and books are also available. Villa Pavela is equipped with a quite battery back-up system allowing you to stay connected even during those frequent Nicaraguan power outages. But do take advantage of at least one blackout and be amazed by the amount of stars visible in the night sky. It's truly humbling...

We are always happy to offer tips and advice on how to get around in Nicaragua and on San Juan del Sur and all the wonderful activities and services it has to offer. The local zip line and numerous boat cruises are attractions not to be missed. If you are thinking of trying out surfing for the first time then you can sign up with one of the local schools for lessons offered right at our beach.

Come and enjoy the authentic Nicaraguan beach vacation, a unique experience offered only at Villa Pavela.

              Owner info

              About the owner: My husband and I are architects who love to travel and discover new cultures, different attitudes and surprising ways of living. For us, Nicaragua is about warmth, being one with nature, taking the time to smell a flower, playing with the kids at the beach all day long and just hanging out in hammocks in the company of friends. In Nicaragua time slows down. We have three children and love spending all of our free time with them at Villa Pavela.

              Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
              We chose this location for its beauty and tranquility. Playa Remanso is nestled in one of the most beautiful bays along the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. San Juan del Sur is only a short drive by car. Conveniently close for picking up groceries yet comfortably far away to let you abandon yourself to the peace and quiet of Remanso Bay.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              While traveling in Nicaragua, we fell in love with the traditional outdoor living concept, which inspired the design of our Villa. Our property being perched on a ridge offers 270 degree vistas towards the Pacific and the surrounding mountains. From the moment we set foot on the lot we were sold on this breathtaking unique panoramic quality. The sweet smelling, cool breeze in our face sealed the deal. Ever since we've owned Villa Pavela, our favorite thing is to wake up before the kids and run off to our beach for an early morning swim. Returning to the fresh smell of coffee and breakfast, prepared by our housekeeper Eliza, is simply heaven. It would be our pleasure to offer you this magical experience.
