  • Perfect Vacation Rental!

    "My girlfriends and I wanted to do a quick little getaway over our winter break and Nicaragua was on our radar. After researching several different vacation rentals, we couldn't pass up the allure of having our own pool, our own kitchen and two bedrooms--each with their own bathrooms (toilets,sinks, and showers). Have you ever tried to share one bathroom area with one shower, one toilet and one sink between four girls? I don't recommend it! ;-) Not only was the description of Harmony House enough to get us excited, the pictures of Harmony house were equally as enticing! (As an aside, the pictures do not do it justice...you can't capture the feeling of eating a breakfast burrito outside on the second floor patio while overlooking tree tops and the bright blue ocean!) We had many questions prior to arriving in Nicaragua and Michelle, the property owner was BEYOND helpful! She helped us with places to stay in Managua and Granada (we arrived in Nicaragua several days before going to San Juan del Sur), she recommended shuttle companies to take, restaurants to try, and activities to do. We came up with a ton of questions and Michelle answered them all very thoroughly. (Thanks, Michelle, for all of your help!) The place was very clean and the caretaker (Jordan) was very nice and accommodating. Even though Michelle answered a ton of questions for us, Jordan had to answer his fair share as well. While two of the girls in our party spoke Spanish, Jordan speaks English as well so communication was no problem. He allowed us privacy and told us to just let him know when we wanted them to come clean. They did the grounds including the pool daily and did the trashcans inside the house every other day. The water in Harmony House is warm but if you are used to taking 100 degree plus showers, you've got to understand that it won't happen here. We never had a problem with a lack of warm water at our stay. The owners have a ton of movies for their guests to enjoy. It was so nice to sit inside with all the windows open and watch a movie with a glass of wine...it was the epitome of a relaxing vacation! Town is literally a five minute easy walk. There are a lot of restaurants that open up to the beach and a lot of little bars to enjoy. The market and some local pharmacies made it easy for us to get our little necessities. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone to enjoy. We felt very safe and welcomed and can't wait to get back!"

  • Great Experience

    "I enjoyed this luxurious House over looking the cozy south Nicaragua Pacific coast bay of Nacascolo. I stayed in one of the four apartments within the house and enjoyed the whole house with a nice pool and a beautiful view of the bay. I felt peacefulness and tranquility that is second to none. Located just 10 minutes from San Juan Del Sur, you are far enough from town to really relax, but close enough to enjoy a night life along the beach road where there are many chooses for the party in you. San Juan del Sur offers many things for individuals and families alike, go sport fishing, enjoy surfing, sailing, horse back riding on the beach or in the near by mountains. You will have the chance to see many different animals that are throughout the tropical country of Nicaragua."

  • NicaVaca2012

    "I had no idea what to expect when booking a last minute trip to Nicaragua. The owners bragged about this place for years and I wasn't sure if it would live up to all they said ...and wow, notnonly did San Juan live up to everything, it surpassed ...the scenery even more beautiful than the pictures show, the town fun and colorful and friendly with delicious fresh food and perfectly chilled Tonia's ...the people friendly and not once did I feel unsafe. And for the coffee lovers, the best Americano I ever had. My trip included hiking, visiting surf beach near casa ire and taking advantage of the driver taking me to south beaches which were breath taking and soo few people it was like the beach was all your own. The home itself is paradise all on its own ...beautiful and modern inside, an amazing infinity pool and pacific view, caretakers that are kind and helpful ... Really, this whole experience was amazing and I'm thankful for it. I hope to be back soon."

  • Highlight of our Trip!

    "We had such a memorable two weeks at Casa Suenos, I already miss it! Everything we dreamed of and more. Rob the owner was so kind and helpful giving us updates and suggestions to what we should do during our stay. The Casa had a friendly security guard out front so we never felt unsafe. We left most of our valuables out and none of us encountered any problems. It is walking distance from down town, but very cheap cab ride anywhere. Rob helped us arrange a personal driver, Eli. He drove few of us to and from the Managua airport. The house was fully equipped and we enjoyed using the brand new BBQ. We really enjoyed cooking at the house, but I highly recommend Catalina's cooking. She is the sweetest and the cutest (ask her to make Mango Chicken! That was my favourite!). The rooms were spacious and comfortable with AC and fans. The communal space was ample and we really loved all the surf/snowboard dvds that were left for the house. The infinity pool was such a luxury! Gorgeous scenery and sunset! Pool was kept tidy every day and we enjoyed having drinks by the poolside with our neighbours. If you are looking for a great time with your friends or family, Casa Suenos certainly fits all the criteria for an amazing vacation!"

San Juan Del Sur Travel Tips

Visitors to San Juan del Sur Vacation Rentals

San Juan del Sur is situated on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast. As a seaside resort town, it is one of the country’s most popular vacation destinations. Surfers from around the world come to ride San Juan del Sur’s beach breaks. Scuba divers are also drawn to the area’s amazing underwater treasures. If you are looking for a great beach vibe with beautiful natural surroundings then this is the destination for you. By day, you can explore or laze on the tropical paradise beaches and at night, enjoy the pulse of the salsa rhythms at the local night spots.

Legendary Style and Hospitality at San Juan del Sur Villas

Imagine glass doors that fold back onto a wide deck overlooking the bay, lush tropical gardens where parrots and monkeys watch you from their perches, or lazy days reading a good book in a hammock as you sip on a tropical cocktail. This is the life that you can experience at the luxurious villas in San Juan del Sur. Private, spacious and tastefully furnished, you can feel like you have your own slice of paradise. The warm local hospitality is evident is the small touches and finishes that will make you feel right at home. Many of the rental homes are located on the beachfront, meaning that it’s just a few steps until you have soft white sand squishing between your toes. For some villas, you will not even need to have a car as they are located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and beaches.

Discover Nicaragua’s Treasures from San Juan Del dur Oceanfront Rentals

One of the great advantages of staying in an oceanfront villa is that you can check out the ocean swell and wind direction from your deck as you sip your morning coffee. Decide on the day’s activities as you go along, with no rush or specific travel agenda.

Join a sailing cruise and explore the coastline from the ocean side. Enjoy a leisurely snorkel on the reefs when you drop anchor or relax on the deck and soak up the sun. Scuba diving excursions can be easily arranged and cater for all levels of divers. Several dive schools in the area can offer certification courses if you plan to stay a while.

For a fun day out, go on a tree-top canopy tour in the rainforest. Zip lines will take you from platform to platform and you can get to experience the forest from a bird’s-eye view. It’s a thrilling experience and sure to be a highlight of your vacation.

Horseback riding excursions are also popular. You can explore the foothills and valley behind San Juan del Sur on well trained cattle ponies. Accompanied by local cowboys, you can gain some insight into the lifestyle on a local ranch.

San Juan del Sur is growing in popularity as a sport fishing destination. Marlin, sailfish and tuna are regularly hooked in the waters off the coast. Dedicated game fishing charters are available with experienced skippers that’ll take you to the best fishing spots of the area.

Shopping in San Juan del Sur is a great experience. Bargain for fresh produce or crafts at the local markets or visit some of the downtown stores for fashion items. Restaurants and cafés serve tasty local and international cuisine and the warm hospitality will have you smiling in no time.

Seasons in San Juan del Sur

Because of its tropical location, it’s difficult to differentiate between summer and winter in Nicaragua. Rather, the seasons are characterized by the rainfall. The wet months are from May to November and if traveling anywhere overland during this period it’s advised to have a 4x4. Rain storms are short but occur almost daily and the vegetation is lush and green. It is during this season that the surfing conditions are at their optimum as the southern swells ride up the coast. The dry season is from December to April, during which temperatures are hot and it can get quite windy.
