The house is just minutes from the excellent Puesta del Sol restaurant which serves three meals a day from an eclectic menu which includes Seafood, Meats, Chickens and Austrian Schnitzel and Strudel. The small 'Mini-Super' as you enter the Parque where our home is located, is well stocked with food items, beverages, even a bathing suit, should you have forgotten yours at home!

The staff at the Parque are hospitable, gracious and wonderful! Cleaning and laundry can be arranged as you like.

Just as you enter onto the beach there is a terrace with chairs and hammocks where you can enjoy an ocean view in the shade!

Within minutes, just past La Flor Turtle and Wildlife Preserve is the town of Ostional where you can buy freshly caught fish for dinner. As well there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, body surfing (this is not a surfing beach - the slope is too gentle), shell finding, beach walking and exploring the coastline. Close by there is horse back riding as well as boats to rent for trips to nearby islands.

                          The Parque, where our home is located, is a small beach resort, on Playa el Coco, which we believe is the most beautiful, unspoiled beach in Nicaragua, perfect for walking, swimming, coastline wandering and photographing sunsets! We began coming to Nicaragua annually in 1999 and have traveled over much of the country. We chose our home for its gracious tranquil surroundings ( a photographer's, writer's and reader's paradise!) and its location in the Parque. The Parque with its hotel, on site management and restaurant is self sustainable, providing employment for local villagers, who previously had to emigrate for work. Unique in its design, our home is crafted from all local hardwoods and on one story raised above the ground level thus creating natural ventilation. The sound of the surf is our music! Our home is located just minutes from Wildlife Refuge La Flor, one of the few places in the world where thousands of sea turtles lay their eggs each year. The Parque has initiated a Tutle Egg protection program, as some of the turtles arrive at Playa el Coco, our beach. This year, we were able to participate in releasing the newly hatched turtles on Playa Coco! If nature is your love, you will love our home!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: We come from opposite ends of the world, I from Manila, Philippines and my husband from New York City. For 29 years we owned and operated a restaurant in downtown Boise, Now we have embarked on a new life, I am writing the restaurant cookbook and my husband has a new career in finance. We arrived in Nicaragua in 1999 on the recommendation of our Nicaraguan Coffee Roaster. Over the years prior, we had talked about Nicaragua, but never gone. Early in 99, Carlos said now was the time to come and coincidentally International Living was offering their first land/home tour of Nicaragua. We are not 'tour' folks generally, however the tour gave us the opportunity to see a lot of the country. When the tour was complete, we drove north to Jinotega to coffee country. We loved the country and left as owners of property in San Juan del Sur. From the moment I set food on Nicaragua soil, I felt at home - interestingly it shares the same latitude as Manila, my birth home. Our plan was to build a home in San Juan and retire part of the year there. With house plans in hand we arrived in 2007, plannng to start construction, however we realized we wanted someplace quieter. So, we drove down to our favourite place, Playa Coco, entered into the Parque, asked to see lots for sale- still thinking building- then were shown our home - the rest is history. Casa Piancito is our perfect retreat from the snows of Idaho where we live. We love breakfasting on the large terrace with local birds joining us and having the surf as our music.

                          Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
                          Playa Coco has been our destination every trip that we have made to Nicaragua. When we initially came to Nicaragua, we were looking to find a location we could reach in a day's journey from our home in Idaho. Indeed we can do this!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Located just minutes from the beach, our home is nestled in a canopy of trees which provides needed shelter from the sun and heat. We love the openness of the design, the hardwood floors and walls, the unique venting system of the roof. We have used the air-conditioning once in the five years we have owned the home. The house is placed so that all you see is the large garden of trees and hear the sound of the surf. The beach is such a quick walk and we value the privacy our home gives us, located off the beach. Our home was built and lived in by a French couple and is furnished with French style wrought iron furniture. This home captures the Southeast Asian style of beach home that I grew up loving. The dining room glass table reflects the tree branches that surround the home - a lovely piece of natural art! As restaurant owners, we love the kitchen and some day soon will use the Beehive oven in our garden. Having such cordial staff as work at the Parque is a treat. Laundry and cleaning are done as we need it. When something needs to be fixed the gentlemen who work in the metal and wood shop arrive and the work gets done. This last trip I made new curtains for the bedrooms and we are building a new walkway from the small access street. We love the diversity of homes in the Parque, not one is the same as another. We were looking for a quiet 'paradise' and we found it!
