San Juan Del Sur villa description

Have you ever felt you want to get away from it all? Go to a place where time seems to stand still and nature is unspoiled and teeming with life and beauty? Casa La Serena is the place for you. Wake up to the sound of birds, listen to the howler monkeys calling in the afternoon, sleep lulled by the din of the ocean. This beautiful house is an architectural wonder. Privacy is created by three levels clustered around a shared living space with kitchen and pool. Enjoy sweeping ocean views from every vantage point and take in the lush foliage of the jungle at your feet. At a 10 minute walk or a short drive you can go down to the best surfing and swimming beaches in Nicaragua: Playa Maderas and Playa Majagual. Casa La Serena is the ideal place to think, relax, read, fall in love again or just be by yourself. If you are the active type you can surf, hike, rent a boat in San Juan del Sur and go fishing, eat at local restaurants or take yoga or Spanish classes. You can also mingle with the international crowd who visits this enchanting Nicaraguan town all year round.

Visiting Nicaragua and staying at Casa La Serena will be an unforgettable adventure. You will have to rent a 4 wheel drive to cruise to and from the house. The road is a bit rough but you will go by some amazing woods and unspoilt lands.

At the house you will have all the comforts you need: beautifully crafted wood furniture, stone showers with picture windows looking out on the ocean and jungle, fully equipped kitchen, linens and towels, large closets and unique design touches.

Take advantage of the tropical spring, experience the lush vegetation and hear the ocassional downpour which after a short while dries up and leaves the air clear and fresh. Come and stay at Casa La Serena. We are now offering special prices for weekly or monthly stays.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: We are a couple of writers who love nature and Nicaragua. We fell in love with Balcones and Casa La Serena for its unique architecture and the feeling of being in our own private paradise. We live in Los Angeles but travel to Nicaragua frequently.

                              Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
                              We fell in love with the house and the access to several of the most amazing beaches in the area.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Casa La Serena is an oasis, a place of quiet and lush beauty. It is open to the sea breeze and built in such a way that one can have both privacy and community. The bathrooms are beautifully made with unique features and the entire house is a showcase for the magnificence of Nicaraguan wood. Balconies open to the dazzling ocean view, a pool to watch the sunset from are some of the joys this house has to offer.
