Villa Pavela is an environmentally friendly, open air concept family vacation base, just a 4 minute easy walk to 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 jungle covered mountains and views towards the Pacific Ocean. The surrounding valley is rich in wildlife such as, howler monkeys, iguanas, tucans, hummingbirds and flocks of parakeets which can be seen daily flying by the house. The Villa's tropical garden is landscaped using indigenous plants, perpetually blooming bougainvillea, jasmin, bromelia, lemon grass, cactus, coco palms and fruit trees such as plantain, 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 bedrooms are equipped with optional, paid 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.

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.
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 and East. We have a coal fired BBQ.
