Property description

Hola and welcome to Orquidea del Sur, your private villa south of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Overlooking the renowned surf break at Playa Yankee, Orquidea del Sur commands a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean that is every bit as breathtaking as you would hope. We promise.

With over 8000 square feet of living space, spectacular gardens, and two award winning swimming pools, the villa has everything you expect from a luxury vacation rental. The manicured gardens are filled with flowers, visited by all sorts of tropical birds including parakeets and toucans, and even monkeys stop by.

Prepare your meals under cathedral ceilings in the fully appointed gourmet kitchen and enjoy them in one of several dining areas throughout the property. One of our favourite spots is on the patio overlooking the pool at sunset. After the sun goes down, you can retire to the house for a game of pool or simply relax with one of the books from the library.

Each of the three bedrooms has a spectacular ocean view and large en suite bathroom. With its own living area and balcony, you may never want to leave the 1000 square foot master bedroom or its large soaker bathtub. Should you require extra space, there are also 4 apartments available at a small additional cost. Sorry, the apartments can only be rented in conjunction with the main house and are not available for separate rental.

Whatever you decide to do with your time here, you’ll be doing it in a truly one of a kind setting. Orquidea del Sur has been a labour of love for us and we look forward to sharing it with you, our guests.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: It is said ......'you don’t choose your destiny… it chooses you.' That is precisely what happened when we found Nicaragua and it found us. After “working” in the Canadian and international telecommunications industry as a senior executive, building high performance teams, I, Robert, started a journey of awareness and discovery that led to a recognition of the power of the universe and how each of us can make a difference in the world. For me, it was just a matter of where in this world could I make the biggest difference; as I believe that success is measured in making a difference in people’s lives. I am fascinated with the power of creativity and enjoy exploring new ways to interpret the power of attitude, the power of attraction and the theme…JUST BELIEVE After looking in several areas in the world, a series of circumstances created the opportunity for Nicaragua, San Juan and Yankee beach, to find me. In January 2007, with a shared vision and a dream of creating, a unique and intimate retreat to enjoy the world’s developments, and a focal point for making a difference in the lives of the Nicaraguan people, construction of our magnificent home began. My partner, Joanne joined me in a trip to Nicaragua and fell in love with everything she saw, particularly the people. She decided to resign from her work in Canada and join me in my journey and create a life together. She plans on making use of her extensive horticulture experience and training as a health care professional to help make a difference in the lives of the Nicas, a people that she feels are worthy of all of our attention. She is the woman that takes my JUST BELIEVE and makes it JUST HAPPEN. In September 2008, we along with her daughter Sara, moved to Nicaragua to complete the retreat and implement our commitment to make a difference in the lives of those we come in contact with. Welcome to our home, ORQUIDEA del Sur, and the next stage of our journey.
