About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We invite you to our vacation home, located next to San Juan del Sur, an up and coming eco-tourism mecca. The Tortuga Azul is a luxury home and is exactly what you are looking for in a vacation home! The house is designed and built to North American standards and has all the conveniences of home... plus a few!


We have A/C for the hot days and the house can be opened up for an indoor/outdoor living environment leading directly onto the open pool deck. We also designed the home to provide fabulous views from almost every point in the house.

Wake up in the morning in the Master Bedroom and you overlook the infinity pool with views of the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop! The master bedroom is an oasis of its own. At about 600 sq.ft., it has a wonderfull round built-in sitting area designed for lounging, french doors opening directly to the pool deck, a King size bed that will make you want to stay in bed all day, and an awesome walk in tile/glass block shower with double heads for two!

The second master is also spacious and is complete with a tile and glass block bath/shower, a nice window seating area and has a queen size bed. The two masters are separated for privacy by the kitchen and living area.

We designed the main living area in a Great-Room design where everything flows together and again views abound! From the elevated kitchen there is a sitting bar made from the local wood. The entire home is accented with the beautiful woods and canes of the area. The great-room area is vaulted to a stunning 16 feet with open wood beams and a cane ceiling for an exquisite effect. Open the double doors and again experience indoor/outdoor tropical living at its best. The giant glass doors lead to a covered porch area spanning the entire length of the house and open to the pool deck area for suntanning and pool fun! You will enjoy some of the most spectacular sunsets on earth lounging in the swinging porch chairs or relaxing in the infinity edge pool.

The pool itself was a creation from the many pools we have seen in our travels, combining a Waterfall spilling into the pool at one end, a curved infinity edge that spans the entire pool, and seating along the back side of the pool with jets to massage your back, all facing the incredible sunsets you will see while soaking an evening away!! The pool also has a large shelf that is appx 18 inches deep and is perfect for small children and lounging! A turtle 'swims' on the floor of the pool. For the evening, we've equiped the house with satelite tv with western U.S. feeds. We are also set up with both back up water and power systems, for those occasional unexpected outages.

We are located overlooking the bay to the North of San Juan, Nacascola Bay, which puts us about a 15 min. walk to San Juan, or a 5 min. drive. We are right on the way to the surf beaches to the North, Marsella, Maderas, Majaguel, etc. Guests of the house can look forward to relaxing privacy in close proximity to points of interest both North and South.

The home comes with a fully equipped kitchen with all the utensils and cookware you might need to prepare your best seafood feast. San Juan del Sur boast many outstanding resteraunts including El Jardin which is right next door to Tortuga Azul.

Our caretaker, William, lives in a separate quarter in order to help clean the pool and home. People love him and he will take great care of you.

We are happy to share our knowledge of the San Juan area as well as other parts of Nicaragua, just send us an email with questions!! Please contact us for actual availability and pricing! We love to help people get the most out of their trip, and we have great people in the area to help as well.

We know that you will enjoy a wonderful vacation, as we have many times, to this enchanting part of the world.


If you would like more information or to see more pictures, please send me an email!

Thanks for visiting our Home, John and Stacia Hagerty

El Jardin

San Juan del Sur is one of the most visited beaches, by both foreign tourists and Nicaraguans. The beach is located inside an almost perfectly U-shaped bay. In San Juan del Sur you can enjoy a variety of seafood in the numerous restaurants that are situated right in front of the bay. Casual beachfront bars with thatched roofs are the norm! For more adventure you can hire a boat and visit the pristine, neighboring beaches or take a shuttle from downtown. Go surfing with Joey the Ausie at “Action Tours”! There is a great canopy tour (Flyin Frog) just outside of SJDS, they also offer great horseback rides where you can see local animals and great views! Big game fishing, diving, and surfing are also among the options. We are about 1 1/2 hour from Granada. It is easy to visit the twin Volcanos of Ometepe from the house, or Mambacho! From Managua it takes about two hours to get to San Juan del Sur. We can arrange a shuttle pick up for you or you can easily rent a car at the airport!

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Shelling


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We fell in love with Nica, San Juan Del Sur, and the people of the country over 10 years ago now! Our older daughter started traveling to Nica when she was about 3, now we have another daughter who is 3 and learning all about the beaches and fun, we are older parents, so it is like doing it all again! We have traveled extensively throughout the country and a lot of Central America, and yes, this is one of the 'Great Spots'. We are fortunate to live in Idaho, in the mountains, one of the other awesome spots of the world, so we get to experience both the warm and the cold. We would be happy to help you with an awesome vacation, feel free to ask questions! Thanks for reading....NicaJohn

Why the Owner Chose Los Miradores (San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua):
If you are looking for a special Nica experience, let us help you, our extensive knowledge and travel can really make each trip that experience of a lifetime. Tortuga Azul is set up to make you not want to leave, but it is worth exploring too, because that is part of the fun of Nica. We have great people that can help with your needs, and help you with the local knowledge of the area, beaches, etc. Our home is just outside of town, which is very nice because town can get quite noisy and busy, we are located close enough for easy access, but far enough to be peaceful and quiet:) Again, please ask for any additional help or info, we most likely have it or can get it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Perfect location with easy access to town and beaches. Excellent privacy, we have had many honeymooners. Great people, with the knowledge to help and local people to help with any needs once there, just read reviews, Elie is a great resource!
