Villa Pavela is an environmentally conscious family vacation home located just a 2 minute easy walk from the most beautiful beach along the Pacific coast, Playa Remanso and only a 10 minute drive to San Juan del Sur.
Perched on a ridge in Remanso Bay, Villa Pavela opens up to a stunning panoramic view stretching across the Pacific Ocean and jungle covered mountains. The surrounding valley is rich in wildlife such as, howler monkeys, iguanas, tucans, hummingbirds and flocks of parakeets which can be seen flying by the house daily. The Villa's tropical garden is landscaped with indigenous plants, perpetually blooming bougainvillea, jasmin, bromelia, lemon grass, cactus, coco palms and fruit trees such as banana, papaya, fig and lime.
The house design strikes an effortless balance between a low-impact traditional open air living concept and all the comforts of home. When designing the house, we were inspired by the Nicaraguan simple way of life and the gentle climate which encourages constant engagement with the surrounding environment. The house layout takes advantage of natural ventilation for cooling purposes however, ceiling fans are provided throughout the house and both our bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, just in case. Traditional heavy white masonry walls, ceramic roof tiles, exposed cedar roof beams, caña ceilings and red terra cotta floors all draw on the traditional Spanish colonial style and available local building materials. We used a more contemporary architectural vocabulary to express the natural beauty of fine cedar screens and polished concrete counters studded with hand picked beach pebbles. Yes, my kids and I picked each and every one...
The house structural design incorporates North American seismic and high wind design principles, ensuring structural integrity and our guests safety.
Daily house cleaning, garden maintenance and security are provided by our staff who live in separate quarters on the property. Our kitchen is fully equipped for all of your cooking needs and basic spices are complimentary. Paid cooking and shopping services are available upon request. Eliza, our home caretaker and resident chef can even stock-up the fridge and have a traditional Nicaraguan supper waiting when you arrive.
The roll up door between the kitchen and the outdoor covered terrace allows for a seamless connection of the two spaces which will most likely become your holiday headquarters during your stay at Villa Pavela. This is a shaded oasis where you can cook, dine, relax in traditional Nicaraguan rocking chairs or hammocks while enjoying the sweeping views and sounds of the Pacific ocean and jungle covered mountains to the north.
The master bedroom has a king size bed and includes an en-suite bathroom and access to a private patio overlooking the cordilleras. The second bedroom has a double bed, a 3-person bunk bed and a private shower/change area. Both bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans and optional paid air conditioning, just in case you need that extra little bit of comfort. A separate powder room is accessible from the screened hallway. All bathrooms and the kitchen have on-demand hot water. There is an outdoor shower for a quick refreshing wash after a day spent at the beach...
We have provided many modern must-haves for our guests such as: Wi-Fi internet access throughout the house and grounds, flat screen TV, entertainment hub with a library of over 200 movies and a music media center. For guests who prefer old-school style entertainment, good old fashioned board games, puzzles and books are also available. Villa Pavela is equipped with a quiet battery powered back-up system allowing you to stay connected even during those frequent Nicaraguan power outages. But do take advantage of at least one blackout and be amazed by the amount of stars visible in the night sky. It's truly humbling...
We are always happy to offer tips and advice on how to get around in Nicaragua and on San Juan del Sur and all the wonderful activities and services it has to offer. The local zip line and numerous boat cruises are attractions not to be missed. If you are thinking of trying out surfing for the first time then you can sign up with one of the local schools for lessons offered right at our beach.
Come and enjoy an eco-conscious, low impact Nicaraguan lifestyle vacation by Playa Remanso, a unique experience offered only at Villa Pavela.

Car: Not Necessary
Situated only 2 minutes on foot from the beach and surf, Villa Pavela offers a beautiful and convenient base for families, surfers and the quiet type simply seeking peaceful comfort in the spectacular views and sounds of nature. The beach provides endless challenges and fun for beginners to experienced surfers, sand castle architects and kite pilots. If playing guitar is your thing then you are welcome to use our instrument, however bring spare chords.
About the owner: Both of us are passionate architects who love to travel to discover new cultures, different attitudes towards life and the inspiring architecture that results. For us, Nicaragua is about warmth, being grateful, being one with nature, taking the time to smell a flower, playing with the kids at the beach all day long and just hanging out in hammocks in the company of family and friends. In Nicaragua time slows down. We have three children and love spending all of our free time with them at Villa Pavela.
Why the Owner Chose Rivas, Nicaragua:
We chose this location for its beauty and tranquility. Playa Remanso is nestled in one of the most beautiful bays along the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. San Juan del Sur is only a short drive by car. Conveniently close for picking up groceries yet comfortably far away to let you abandon yourself to the peace and quiet of Remanso Bay.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
While traveling in Nicaragua, we fell in love with the traditional open air living concept, which inspired the design of our Villa. Our property being perched on a ridge offers 270 degree vistas towards the Pacific and the surrounding mountains. From the moment we set foot on the lot we were sold on this breathtaking unique panoramic quality. The sweet smelling, cool breeze in our face sealed the deal. Ever since we've owned Villa Pavela, our favorite thing is to wake up before the kids and run off to our beach for an early morning swim. Returning to the fresh smell of coffee and breakfast, prepared by our housekeeper Eliza, is simply heaven. It would be our pleasure to share this magical experience with you.
