San Juan Del Sur bed and breakfast description

Casa de las Ballenas or 'House of the Whales' is your adventure destination for whale watching and fun-in-the-Nica-sun. This furnished one-bedroom, one bath B&B offers privacy, seclusion and tranquility with spectacular mountain-top, ocean views and best whate-watching in the area. Bright, airy kitchen is fully stocked with modern stainless steel appliances, including gas operated range and microwave oven. The living area is appointed with beautiful, locally-made cedro-trimmed rattan furnishings; colorful artwork from area artists lends character and charm.
Spend your days at any of the pristine beaches in the area, surfing, sailing, hiking or just swinging in the hammock at home, Nica-style. Casa de las Ballenas is a 5-minute scooter ride from San Juan del Sur, or for adventure travelers, a 15-min walk to the center of town along a challenging but breathtakingly-beautiful route (see photos). Best part? The home has access to TWO SECLUDED BEACHES in the home's private development area (see photos) which you can share with no one all day except the diving pelicans for nothing more than the price of a hearty 30-min walk. If you require transportation to town or to area attractions, owner has made arrangements with local companies for same, at reduced rates.

Home offers flat screen satellite TV, electrically-heated water, electric water pump and separate laundry room (laundry, cooking and WiFi avail at extra charge) and private gated drive for vehicle security.

Recipe for a perfect Nica day? Start with ample breakfast of granola, fresh local fruit, juice and a bottomless cup of aromatic, Nicaraguan coffee. Then let warm ocean breezes rock you in the hammock all day with a beer and a book. In the evening, fire up the gas barbecue and grill fresh caught lobster for your dinner. Finally, luxuriate in our private outdoor shower with only the stars and the moon to play peek-a-boo.
