About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Casa Miramar is "IN TOWN" on the south side of San Juan Bay. It takes just four minutes to touch the sand (really) and maybe four more to reach the center of town, allowing for easy access to all town has to offer. Amazing views of San Juan Bay, back-up power and water, privacy, pool, AC, bluetooth portable speakers, extra surfboards...the house has it all.

Most groups book with us primarily due to our location and then are always pleasantly surprised by all that Casa Miramar has to offer. Casa Miramar is a spacious and private compound that contains two Villa's situated around an amazing courtyard full of lush landscaping. Both of the Villa's are situated to fully maximize the excellent ocean and town views. The front doors of each Villa open up to your private pool oasis and BBQ veranda. Upon your arrival you will be stopped in your tracks by the breathtaking views of the entire bay and beach. The exterior of the property is surrounded by tropical plants, flowers, and trees. No detail has been overlooked for your comfort. Well furnished and impeccably maintained. This is your home away from home.

Each bedroom has whisper-quiet A/C units and ceiling fans to keep you cool while you sleep.

All bedrooms are located on the upper story.

Bedroom Breakdown:

1 over sized King Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 over sized Queen Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 Queen Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 Queen Bedroom with shared Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 two twin Bedroom with shared Bathroom (no view or balcony)

Living areas in both Villas are downstairs with two complete kitchens, two living rooms, two dining rooms and two half bathrooms.

The outdoor area consists of a beautiful pool with two small waterfalls and a spacious patio with a built-in BBQ, Pizza oven, and outdoor kitchenette. Out back and in the courtyard, there are plenty of areas to lounge and relax amidst the tropical landscaping.

With such a location, surfers can check the wind and conditions by glancing at the direction of the boats moored in the bay, and the size of the San Juan Beach Break. Boat trips for surfing or fishing can be booked by request on a modern and fast boat with a knowledgeable Captain for an excellent price.

And, for those interested in polishing up the Spanish, with advance notice we can have experienced teachers come to the house to conduct private classes.

We also have a meal plan or cooking service if groups want to leave that detail to someone else. Just let us know.

Casa Miramar is laid out as two separate Villas surrounding an open courtyard, each with it's own kitchen so it is possible to rent a single unit for groups of six or less or the entire compound for groups of up to ten.

Come enjoy this beautiful and luxurious home and make it a place you bring your family and friends time and again.

About Vanessa Pattison

We (Vanessa & Will) moved to San Juan in 2005 from Ventura, California, bought the land and built a house because we love it here.

We had our three boys born right here in Nicaragua and love raising them in this gorgeous country. Keeping it simple and free.

Will builds custom homes, coaches soccer and surfs as much as possible. Vanessa loves yoga and built and opened Zen Yoga in 2012, she is also very active in the community and at her children's school. Vanessa is also a doula.

We enjoy the simple and easy pace of life in San Juan. It is a great place to live and the temperature is always nice, so we are outside a the beach surfing, swimming, or just lounging by the pool.

We have all the connections here for any excursions, spa services, etc to make the perfect vacation.

Vanessa Pattison purchased this house in 2008

Why Vanessa Pattison chose San Juan del Sur

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The house is in San Juan high enough for awesome views but walking distance to everything. The neighborhood is safe, friendly, and you can purchase fish, shrimp lobster, or beer on the way home.

What makes this house unique

Since Casa Miramar is IN town a vehicle is not needed. And, any beach for surfing or visiting is only a boat/car ride away. Additionally, the house keepers can shop and cook as well as their usual duties of cleaning. They make amazing ceviche, salsa, guacamole and fresh chips as well as natural juices.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send a big thank you for everything with the house last week / 10 days.

We had a great time. Ingrid and the services were amazing & the big house fit our group so perfectly.

Thank you so much again, we hope to be back next year !

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our group traveled to San Juan Del Sur for a week-long vacation. Upon arriving at Casa Miramar, we were given a tour of the home by the owner. On our first night, Vanessa and Will left a delicious snack of homemade Ceviche and fresh guacamole- not to mention a case of cold beer in the fridge! The house was generously appointed with amenities that you would expect to find in at high end boutique hotel, not a vacation rental home. All of the comforts of home were available, such as high speed wifi, cable TV, air conditioning and heated water. There are breathtaking views of the entire town and the beach from the rooms and the pool deck. The staff of housekeepers went above and beyond by thoroughly cleaning the house each morning, offering to cook meals and even doing our laundry. Needless to say, we felt spoiled. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to experience the best that Nicaragua has to offer.

Beautiful View. Relaxing Pool.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property with a great view. The pool and house are cleaned daily. Typical Nica Wi-Fi, It is is is on again. As there was no oven, the BBQ for second option to cook could use replacing. The welcoming book Vanessa has prepared was very informative. A communication book where guests could ad their own thoughts and suggestions for other tenants would be a great addition. Must try Simpletons Fish and Chips they have all you can eat and it is the best fish I have ever had. Those with mobility issues may have problems with grade of road but the short steep incline was worth the reward of our beautiful accommodation at the top. Deborah was a great host helping with communication of staff and any other questions we had. Safe neighborhood....great locals. We really enjoyed our stay. The house is very beautiful.

Thank you Vanessa it was everything we expected.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house and the family that owns it are both fantastic. We had a little hiccup at the beginning when checking in but it was quickly rectified and once my group settled in felt very comfortable and at ease. The property is beautiful and spacious. Everyday a wonderful staff came to clean the property and did a great job! Vanessa and Will were extremely gracious and really care about the experience you have in this home is nothing but spectacular as our time was! We highly recommend this property and hopefully will get the chance to stay again.

Absolutely loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (group of 7) booked Casa Miramar for a week long vacation and could not have been happier with our stay. While we picked this property because of the incredible photos posted on VRBO (coupled with the phenomenal assistance received from Vanessa), we discovered upon our arrival that the pictures posted do not do the house or the view justice. The property itself was immaculate with spacious bedrooms and common areas and a beautiful pool that was cleaned daily. From the top of the hill we had the perfect view of SJDS and were also within a walkable distance from all the restaurants and bars, a walk that was incredibly safe - even at night.

Alba, the property manager, was very accommodating to our request to have groceries delivered so we would have food and refreshments on hand upon our arrival and the rest of the staff was fantastic throughout our stay as well. Between the daily housekeeping services, onsite massages that Alba and Vanessa helped arrange, and the chef prepared lunch on our final day this vacation couldn't have been anymore perfect! I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit San Juan del Sur!

Cant say enough about our experience staying at Casa Miramar. The house is situated perfectly with a stunning view and close enough if you want to walk into town, (10 minutes.) The house staff was incredible with keeping the place spotless and with general info about San Juan. Vanessa went above and beyond to make sure we were all taken care of. Thank you so much! I have family that live in Nicaragua so we visit often. I will always look to rent this place first when i return.

Stunning property w/ Incredible Service and Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This house is impeccable and you can't beat the 360 view of San Juan del Sur!! Waking up to the perfect view of the ocean from bed in the morning is so relaxing. The property is extremely clean / well kept and the hosts are beyond accommodating. Not to mention the heated water, good shower pressure, and super comfy beds :) It is a perfect distance from town and in a safe neighborhood. Highly recommend this place!
