About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Rent our chic villa in Villas de Palermo overlooking the bay of San Juan del Sur. Walk to restaurant, pool and bar at Terraza de Palermo. Free transportation to/from town and the beach on the hours during daylight hours.

We understand that there are several homes for rent by owners in our neighborhood and we want you to understand why our home is your best choice! Starting with the fact that we never charge a cleaning fee to clients and we have the only on-demand backup generator for lights and fans in our community.

We think our home is the best in the community. Why?

Planning to watch the big game or listen to music? Our flatscreen TV is the largest in Villas de Palermo - and not all villas have flatscreen TV's with HDMI input! Bring your HDMI cable and Chromecast to stream Netflix movies using your account from home or watch those important games. Plug your ipod into our docking station. A pair of 36" tall DCM Time Window speakers makes your TV, DVD and music sound like you're in a concert hall.

Planning to sleep? Blackout curtains in the bedrooms help keep the sun outside - and the villa cool in the heat of the afternoon. We have fans over both beds, and not all villas have fans upstairs.

Planning to work? We have desks in both bedrooms - and an Aeron chair for serious work sessions. Our backup system keeps WIFI, fans and lights on when the National power grid is out. No other villa has a battery backup system or any other system that seamlessly transitions to backup when necessary.

Planning to cook? Our villa has a fully stocked kitchen with lots of glassware, dishes, storage containers, pots, pans, cooking utensils and everything you'll need to prepare your own meals. Personally, I choose the restaurant or room service, but it's your option!

Planning to soak in the views? Our gardens around the patio are mature and well maintained and our view of the ocean is unobstructed by homes or service buildings. We include a dining table you can move outside, and cushions for the outdoor rocking chairs to make the views even more pleasant!

And there’s more! We have screen panels on our sliding doors so you can enjoy the ocean breezes without running the A/C and both our bedrooms have ceiling fans. Our upholstery is new and our villa is spotless. Our villa is decorated with lots of original art, crafts and antiques from the Nicaraguan colonial era.

Compare our villa to the rest! However, if our home is not available, we'll find you a nearby home with another great view of the bay.

Daily rate includes up to four guests in two bedrooms. Extra charges may apply for metered electricity, larger parties and extra beds.

About Kori

We love Nicaragua as our favorite get-away from life in the fast lane in California!

Kori purchased this house in 2007

Why Kori chose Nicaragua

Excellent onsite management and front desk team that handles any issue or question.

What makes this house unique

Great pool scene. Best food in San Juan del Sur. 24-hour security. And of course, our fantastic neighbors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at Villas de Palermo twice this year--each time for one week with the most recent being November 21 thru the 28th, 2011. Check in was organized and very easy and a staff member then showed us to our villa and assisted with our luggage. After quick showers we went to the resort bar for refreshments and then a delightful meal which was served on a terrace which has a nice view of the city and Pacific Ocean and the sunsets were nothing short of spectacular!!!!

There are numerous activities available to satisfy the needs those who want more to do that swim in the pool, get a tan or to just plain relax. In fact, for readers, there are even books to borrow and for movie buffs, movies to borrow. Cable television featured nearly 100 channels, the wi-fi was faster than many places I visit and phone calls were easy using Skype which cost less than 3 cents per minute.

We are now planning our next visit early in 2012!!

Palermo Villa

  • 3 of 5

Clean and comfortable overall. The downstairs bed was small and broken on one side. Very uncomfortable. Why not have a king bed? Upstairs bed better, but not much. On the weekends, the hotel is overrun with families with their children from Managua. The pool is not very good at that time. The staff was excellent and friendly.

Owner's Response: Hi Robert Thank you for writing us back We checked the bed after the review and noted that there was no breakage or damage which left us a little confused! As well we advertise as having Queen beds vs king- there was never any advertisement of this so you should have been well aware and not surprised. The bed is queen as a king frame would not fit up those stairs. We do hope overall you enjoyed your stay here in SJDS. Best wishes and happy travels

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

My whole family rented two houses. the houses are nice and clean, but we missed some details in the houses, especially in the kitchen - for example - how to cook pasta without sieve, how to wash the dishes without a dish towel, how to clean the house without a broom. just small things, but very helpful - i would recommend to invest small money for this small things!

the staff was very nice, helpful and very friendly, the shuttle was working perfect. the restaurant offers good food, the prices are fair and the chocolate cake is unbelievable, my wife would like to return just because of this cake ;-).

the cocktails during the sunset were also good and the views gergious!

we will definatly return and hope that the kitchenequipment is then better then now.

thank you for a nice stay!

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that some of the standard kitchen supplies were missing during your stay. When you return, please ask at the front desk and they will bring you what you need - or we'll give you credit at the local variety store to buy what will make your stay perfect. (within reason, of course!!!) No matter how we try, it seems that our kitchen supplies often end up in a neighbor's house!

Wonderful staff

  • 4 of 5

Was last at Palermo three years ago. It has only improved more. The staff deserves particular mention. All were attentive and friendly and several went out of their way to help us. One example is Carlos spending time receiving, printing, scanning and resending e-mails having to do with a time-sensitive purchase and sales agreement on my home. Another was the extra research to find us a place to rent an all terrain vehicle for a trip down the coast. Food at the Palermo restaurant was very good and not over-priced. The stay was so enjoyable that even the scorpion sting I got at the Villa was just a little more spice in the trip - like a bee sting; no worse. But do be careful when packing to go home!

Palermo Hotel and Resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Palermo Hotel and Resort. Everything was fantastic! The views of the ocean and sunsets were just awesome! The villas are clean with daily cleaning services. The villas are nestled closely together but it feels so private and spacious at the same time. This is a perfect place to stay for vacacioners who are single, travelling in couples or families. The restaurant food is excellent and the prices are reasonable with beautiful views of the pool and the ocean as the backdrop; we enjoyed many meals here. There is free rides to the village of San Juan from the Hotel and few times we had taxis they were very cheap. There are so many beautiful, clean beaches around San Juan and we had several wonderful days swimming and playing with the waves. We feel very safe here as well and look forward to returning here again. There are many attractions in the surrounding area as well like the city of Granada, Ometepe, zip lines and horseback riding. I would definately recommend Palermo Hotel and Resort to anyone, it is fantastic. Lastly, we really love the people here they are very friendly and helpful.

Great three night stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for three nights and the hotel is great. The villas are spacious and quiet, the pool is very relaxing after a hot day at the beach and the food is prepared with amazing attention to detail. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the free shuttle to town was on-demand. A really relaxing get-away place and they even picked us up at the Nicaraguan border for free!

Owner's Response: I love the restaurant near our home, too. It's great to be able to walk to the pool and dinner or order room service after a busy day.
