Casa Francesca is a stunning villa located in the progressive, boutique community of Balcones de Majagual. Casa Francesca is a unique home mixing both modern luxuries and natural, sustainable organic elements.
Located 12km north of the lovely village of San Juan del Sur Nicaragua, this private villa boasts unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean from every part of the home. The incredible 15meter infinity pool overlooks the ocean and is the perfect spot to watch one of Nicaragua's incredible sunsets. It is also the perfect spot to watch humpback whales breaching in the ocean as they arrive in the warm waters off the coast of Nicaragua to nurse their young.
Casa Francesca also benefits from its location in one of Central Americas largest private wildlife corridors. Expect daily visits from the local friendly monkey troop, along with sightings of parakeets, and sloths.
House Description High ceilings, cool white washed stucco walls, and stone floors give Casa Francesa a large, open airy feel. The large screened windows allow for the almost constant breeze that the home benefits from to flow unobstructed through the home, keeping the temperature comfortable both day and night. Gorgeous wooden furniture, stone and rock elements, incredible paintings and blue decor are the final touches in this unique villa, lending to it a soft and natural feel.

The two large bedrooms in the main part of the home each contain full ensuite bathrooms, comfortable king sized beds and ocean views. The third bedroom is located in the designated office space (located right at the pool, you can step right out of the office and plunge into the water) and contains a large, comfortable futon that can easily be converted to sleep one to two people. Washer and dryer are available to guests staying longer than one week at an additional cost Cook like a chef in Paradise The living, dining, and kitchen space all have spectacular ocean views, and are surrounded by large Japanese style sliding doors that you can open for uninterrupted ocean.

Year Purchased: 2009
About: Casa Francesca was named for my daughter. Went to Nicaragua in 2006 to help set up Ocean Green Surfboards, environmentally friendly surfboards. Fell in love with the country and its people, both are beautiful and unspoilt.
Why San Juan Del Sur: The unparalleled views of the ocean, the sound of the surf, the songs of the monkeys and birds. Why would I go anywhere else?
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The ability to stay right in the NIcaraguan jungle while not giving up an ounce of comfort in this unique, modern and comfortable home. There is nothing better than watching the sun sink into the pacific ocean from the edge of the pool.
