San Juan Del Sur house description

We have changed the name of our home from Casa Tranquila to - Casa Colina - so don't be confused if you hear it referenced as both in the near future. Nothing else has changed.

Our home features an open concept floorplan that flows out onto the front veranda through 4 beautiful large glass doors. Built on a hillside overlooking the quaint town, there are several terraced outdoor living areas. Just below the house is a large stone surfaced terrace with a tree growing in the middle, providing adequate sun and shade.

The home is quite private, and while the 4 m x 8 m (12 ft x 24 ft) infinity pool is considered shared, it is only shared with the adjacent twin house. Both homes may be rented together to larger groups, accommodating 18 in total. Because of the terracing, and the other house being below ours, anyone staying there cannot see into any of our spaces and vice versa. The pool is located behind the other house, further up the hill, but adjacent to ours. Anyone staying in the other house cannot see the pool, but there is a great view of the pool from our master bedroom and front veranda.

The bathroom in the master bedroom is only accessible through the bedroom, making it a very private space. The main bathroom is ensuite to the second bedroom but also accessible from the main living area through a separate doorway. Both bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans while the loft bedroom has two wall fans directed at the sleeping area. Due to the constant gentle breeze, air conditioning in the main part of the house is not necessary.

There is a safe and high tech security system for our guests use.

Keywords: 2 bedrooms with king size beds, private loft with two twin beds, 3 twin sofa beds, oceanview, infinity pool overlooks ocean & town, covered veranda with rocking chairs and hammocks, separate large terrace with gas bbq.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband and I love to travel to sunny, tropical locations and have been considering purchasing a vacation property for several years but just hadn't found the right country until we arrived in Nicaragua. Living in a part of Canada that gets plenty of cold, wet weather, we plan to spend more and more time in SJDS over the coming years with a goal to eventually retiring there.

Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
After travelling around Nicaragua for several weeks in February 2011, we arrived in San Juan del Sur for our final week of vacation. The people were friendly and show pride in their town. After 12 hours, we both loved it and felt very safe. It only took us a few days to discover all the hidden jewels of the town, from restaurants to shops, tours and activities. It was most important to us to be able to purchase groceries and other products that we are accustomed to and the local offerings did not disappoint. Having lobster dinner on the beach for $14 - or cocktails, wine and lobster dinner for two at under $40 certainly helped with the decision to purchase in SJDS!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our vacation home is truly a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants and only another 3 minutes to the beach. The views of the valley, mountains, town, bay and ocean are spectacular. We can literally sit for hours at the pool or on the verandah and stare off with only the birds to interrupt the scenery and night lights. The peace and tranquility of this area is at the south end of San Juan del Sur and really doesn't require a car as do the other surrounding developments. And if we're feeling lazy, a quick inexpensive taxi ride gets us to where we need to be. There are plenty of inexpensive taxis and shuttles to get you to nearby surfing beaches as well as tour companies that can do longer day trips to outlying areas. The beach in SJDS is great for playing in the small surf or laying about, with plenty of bars and restaurants to serve you. The marina there offers fresh seafood for sale, fishing trips and fun sailing excursions to nearby beaches.
