About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Casa De Mono (Monkey House) a secluded, relaxing, ocean view get-away in an eco-friendly community. Our home overlooks the best beaches in Nicaragua; Playa Maderas, Playones & Playa Majagual. Walk to the beach through the private nature path and it’ll take you about 20 minutes. If you want to hit the surf quicker and don’t feel like walking, the drive is about 3-5 minutes. Casa de Mono has a wonderful ocean view and positioned for maximum privacy, you won't see or hear any neighbors.

Watch amazing sunsets and listen to the waves. Our home blends into the natural, tropical surroundings, has a really cool outdoor natural stone shower and a private pool - no sharing! You’ll wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and exotic birds and will see them throughout the day. After hanging out at the beach or surfing all day, have drinks or dinner on the covered outdoor dining patio. Casa de Mono is a unique custom home that was designed using green building techniques, local hardwoods and local stone.
**House Details**
Our Casa sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms, both with queen-size beds (linens included). There is a fully equipped kitchen, a gas BBQ, a private pool, wireless Internet, a covered patio and an outdoor shower. We have a solar system that warms the water and a battery back-up system that will keep the drinks in the refrigerator cold and the lights on when the local power goes out.

Living room has good size flat screen TV with 150+ movies.

Concierge is included. They will escort you to our home and give you lots of information about the area. They will help book excursions and any activity you might need. We have maid service and 24-hour security.
Rental of a 4X4 vehicle is a must.

**Where we're located**
Our house is in the progressive eco-friendly community of Balcones de Majagual. The community is located just 30 miles from the Costa Rican border and about 20 minutes north of San Juan Del Sur where you can find plenty of nightlife, restaurants and shopping.
Balcones de Majagual was built within a protected forest reserve and is a sister development from the creators of Morgan's Rock. We are just steps from the best beaches of Playa Maderas, Playones, and Majagual. We have monkeys, exotic birds, fascinating jungle creatures, sea turtles, great surf breaks, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and the best sunsets.

**San Juan Del Sur**
Our Casa is about a 20 minute drive to the lively beach town of San Juan del Sur where you can find markets, restaurants and bars. The town is also a launch off spot for many adventures such as turtle viewing at La Flor, Volcano expeditions, Zip-line excursions, ATV rentals, Sport fishing and much more. Of course, a good meal or sampling the local Rum with family and friends while overlooking the bay is another good reason to visit San Juan Del Sur.

**Wildlife**
Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts will love the wide variety of beautiful birds and fascinating jungle creatures. One of our favorite things to do is to take the short trip to La Flor to see the endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles laying eggs and their hatchlings emerging from their nests and heading out to sea. Please go with a guide and don’t step on them! There are plenty of monkeys in the trees and exotic birds that you’ll see regularly. Other wildlife in the area include Sloths, Ocelots, Marguays, Coatimundi and more… these may be more difficult to spot.

**Beaches**
We’re located on some of the best beaches in Nicaragua. Playa Maderas is one of Nicaragua’s best, consistent surf breaks. Majagual is a calm beach that is great for swimming. You can even rent surfboards or boogie boards at the beach and can buy a snack or a cold beer. Playa Marsella is a nice beach that is a short 10 minute drive south. Surf by day or check out the restaurants. It’s a nice alternative to driving to San Juan Del Sur.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Casa De Mono is owned by a Dave, Carol and Ed. All 3 of us live in Southern California. We work quite a bit and enjoy traveling when we're able to get away. Our style is somewhat adventurous, we like to go to exotic places and try different things. We hope to spend more time in Nicaragua as we get older and work less.

Why San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua:
When we arrived in Nicaragua, we stayed in San Juan Del Sur and loved it. The Nicaraguan people were wonderful and the expats were cool and very interesting - I can see why they never leave. After looking at land in various places, we picked our area 'Balcones de Majagual' because the beaches were so beautiful and secluded. In addition, the developers believed in preserving nature and building in a way that uses local, sustainable woods and building materials. We were sold on it, bought a lot and decided to build a custom home. Our home, Casa De Mono, was finished at the end of 2008. At Casa De Mono, you get lots of nature, the best beaches in Nicaragua, yet are still close enough to the nightlife of San Juan Del Sur - about a 20 minute drive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is one of the most private in our community and positioned so you won't see or hear the neighbors. We have a very nice private infinity pool and GREAT outdoor space. We're one of the closest to the beach as well. An easy 15 minute walk down the private nature path. The drive is just a few minutes.
