Property description

Forest and Surf Villa is FOR SALE- Make your dream a reality- contact us for more details

Forest and Surf Villa is a 4,000 square foot home designed by renowned architect Matthew Falkiner of Simplemente Madera. Experience peaceful treetop living in eco-luxury with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Sounds of the waves from three nearby beaches can be heard from the bedrooms and living spaces, harmonizing with sounds from birds and howler monkeys.

The heart of the house is the main level. You enter through the large deck among the trees and raised high above the forest floor. Sliding doors open into the open plan dining area and kitchen. The hallways are columned with beautiful pieces of eucalyptus hardwood and lead into the main sala or living room and another viewing deck.

The house has two master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, his and hers sinks. A third bedroom also with an ensuite bathroom is located with its own entrance at the lower level of the house with its own deck. An additional fourth bedroom is located on the upper level.

The house has wi-fi through-out. Located on the lower level is the laundry room equipped with washer and dryer - very handy during the green season. The house is also equipped with back-up power powered by inverter so can continue a tranquil holiday without noise from generators - a must in Nicaragua.

Forest and Surf Villa is part of the Balcones de Majagual, a gated community. Parking is available with security 24 hour security. Your security man is also equipped with a two way radio that links him to the property supervisor should you have any questions about the house, the town or if you need assistance with additional services. Maid service is available at no extra cost.

Please let us know if you would like to avail of concierge services which will be at an additional charge of 10% of the rental fee. The concierge will meet and greet you as well as help you arrange extra amenities, tours and extra services.

One friend marvels at 'the house with no windows'. I say 'what do you mean no windows? It is one massive window'. See for yourself. Another friend can't wrap her head around how we seem to be living outside yet when it rains, we stay dry. Alternative lifestyle, open to adventurous minds. We love being 15 minutes from the pretty little town of San Juan yet still far away from it all, nestled in this forest home sharing the space with the local wildlife. We enjoy the ocean and beach from three different beaches - Majagual, Playones and Maderas.

Getting Here and Getting Around...

The houses in Balcones de Majagual are accessible only by 4x4 vehicle. .

Dollar rent-a-car and Budget rent-a-car are reliable car rental services in Nicaragua. Adelante Express, Iskra Travel, Paxeos and Big Wave Daves are some companies that offer regularly scheduled air-conditioned tourist shuttle service from Managua International Airport to San Juan del Sur. If you are coming from the Costa Rican border of Peñas Blancas, it is a mere 30kilometer trip into San Juan del Sur and a taxi should only cost $20

Nearby Town and Beaches...

15 minutes north of the town of San Juan del Sur, close enough to drive down to shop for a few amenities, chat with the local surfers or go to a restaurant or bar for some live music and eats but far enough to retreat from all that hustle and bustle.

If however, you and your friends are here for a surfing adventure, you will be glad to know that you can stash your boards on your truck or ATV and drive down from the house to Playa Playones in 3 minutes. Park the car and walk 5 minutes south to Playa Maderas. The owner of Forest and Surf Villa likes to walk to Maderas with his board from the house, taking him about 20 minutes. Playa Remanso, breaks on sand, excellent for beginners is about a 35 minute drive. Playa Yankee and other surfing beaches are a bit further off.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Glen and Sunshine Ross owners. Happy to help you explore Nicaragua, a different world

Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
My husband is English and would like to escape the sun. I am from the Philippines and would like to escape the crowd. Costa Rica was our first choice but budget did not fit. We discovered Nicaragua, a unique architectural show home, signed the deed and loaded up a container of things.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
One friend marvels at 'the house with no windows'. I say 'what do you mean no windows? It is one massive window'. See for yourself. Another friend can't wrap her head around how we seem to be living outside yet when it rains, we stay dry. Alternative lifestyle, open to adventurous minds. We love being 15 minutes from the pretty little town of San Juan yet still far away from it all, nestled in this forest home sharing the space with the local wildlife. We enjoy the ocean and beach from three different beaches - Majagual, Playones and Maderas.
