We are dedicated to both preserving and enjoying this special part of the world. Challenged by the issues of living responsibly within our ecosystem, we are dedicated to exploring progressive architecture and alternative energy with an unyielding respect for the local environment.

Solar powered and battery backup systems keep the lights on, the refrigerator cold and the showers hot when local power is disrupted.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Patricia and I met and fell in love here in San Juan del Sur. I am originally from British Columbia, Canada, but have been a full time resident of Nicaragua for the passed 8 years. Patricia was born in Costa Rica and moved to Nica when she was young. My passion is surfing, fishing and other outdoor activities. Patricia is studying oriental mecidine and massage in Managua, and we hope to eventually put her skills to good use hosting wellness and yoga retreats. We are always excited to host new visitors. Tyson

              Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
              Because it is the most beautiful place I have ever been! I have traveled North and South America, Europe, Asia, and the Carribean and this seriously is the spot.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Apart from the private beach and surf break, we also have an incredible local staff, who work hard to ensure your stay is unforgetable.
