"My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Oro. Though there were only two of us, it would easily accommodate another couple, or children. Villa Oro is a wonderful place to stay while visiting San Juan del Sur. The house is in a lovely, quiet location about 10 minutes from town. The house is situated in the hills above San Juan, with stunning views of the ocean, the sunsets, and the night sky. The house is amazingly well equipped, and the kitchen has everything you might want for any cooking you want to do at home. We actually preferred to sip a drink, and eat dinner on the veranda, watching the sun set over the bay. The house is very light and airy, with high ceilings. The living area is large, with French doors that open onto the veranda. The master bedroom has a king size bed, with a lovely master bath. This bedroom also has French doors that open onto the veranda. The whole house has enough doors and windows, so that it was delightful to open them up and let the breeze blow through. The grounds are large, and beautifully landscaped. The howler monkeys came onto the property on several occasions, and the pool was a treat after a day at the beach. Finally, the wifi is great!
We had a very small rental car, which was fine for navigating the road to Villa Oro in the dry season. We also had no trouble getting to most all of the beaches in our little Yaris. We enjoyed the fresh fish we bought near the port, the produce in the market, Sanchez Market, the bread at Pan de Vida, and the occasional trip to Pali.
The owner is very responsive, and will help you with any questions you have regarding the property, and the onsite caretakers are extremely helpful as well."
