About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults and two children in bunk beds)

This beautiful home comes fully furnished for you and your family. We have an on site caretaker named Alfredo that lives in his own small home on the property and is a helpful, kind gentleman. The house is on a slight hill about 60 meters/yards from the water. This ensures beautiful views and additional privacy. Four bedrooms and two full baths. Three of the bedrooms have full size beds and one bedroom has a full bed and a set of bunk beds for children. There is also a nice crib for families with infants.

The beach in front of the home is known as one of the premier beaches in Central America, and that is why Jack Nicklaus is putting 'Seaside Mariana' only a couple miles south of our home. The beach shelf is so gradual that in low tide, there is about 100 yards/meters of beach. Unique volcanic rock formations transform into mini waterfalls and tide pools throughout the day with the changing of the tides.

We also own a beautiful lot three minutes walk from the home with lots of shade from mature palm and almond trees. This lot IS ON THE WATER and is included in the rental for your enjoyment.

A beautiful walk up the beach (20 minutes) in the morning will take you to the fresh seafood market. All different types of fish, rays, clams, shrimp, lobster, etc can be purchased just as soon as it makes it's way off the local fishing boats. It doesn't get fresher. There are horseback rides on the beach and four-wheelers (ATVs) for rent as well.

If you enjoy gambling there is a casino at the Barcelo Montelimar resort located in nearby Masachapa, that is open to the pubic and open 24 hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Banking: There is also a new ATM in Masachapa and a Bank in San Rafael del Sur, the nearest medium sized town with a grocery store.

The home is located in Pochomil, which is an older development that is the home to many of the Nicaraguan elite, foreign diplomats, and expats. It is also the closest beach to Managua. The former president of Nicaragua lives just a short walk down the beach. The road is paved and well maintained all the way to Pochomil which is a huge plus in Nicaragua. There is also a Barcelo resort in the nearby town of Masachapa with a casino if you want to try your luck.

We look forward to having you stay at our home and don't forget that Alfredo will make sure that the pool is ready and the hammocks hung waiting for you!

Please be aware that we do not have WIFI or internet at the home. There is a TV but we also do not have cable.

The home can also be rented with a full time cook/maid for an additional charge of 25 dollars per day.

A 4x4 my be needed to get all the way to the home in the rainy season due to unpredictable road conditions in this season.

THE SURF: The surf break in front of the house is a gradual, sloping beachbreak with several sandbars which is perfect for beginner to intermediate surfers. Crowds are not a factor- you will most likely have the entire lineup to yourself! The break is best on WSW swells and benefits from Nicaragua's famous 250+ days of offshore winds per year. At low tide, about 100 yards of beach is exposed. To the north of the house are the famed, world class breaks near Playa San Diego (Chiggas, Hemmies, Pipes) which are fast, hollow and challenging. You can get to San Diego via car (30-45 minutes) or via water by hiring a local fisherman in Masachapa.

Keywords: Beach, Front, Ocean, View, rancho, swimming, pool, AC, onsite, parking

Because I get these questions every week I wanted to mention it at the beginning of the description. No one night rentals. There is a two night minimum rental time. The maximum number of guests is 10 if there are two children in the group that can sleep in the bunk beds. All quotes are for up to 8 guests.

About Chris & Damian

Chris and Damian are Americans living all the way up in Montana. Yes, it gets cold here in the winters, that is why we go to Nicaragua!

Chris & Damian purchased this house in 2006

Why Chris & Damian chose Pochomil

Beautiful weather + Beautiful beach + beautiful home = Really easy choice.

Our home is actually a walled compound that provides privacy, seclusion and security with parking inside for 3 vehicles. So not only is the location amazing but it's also very private, safe and secure.

What makes this house unique

Private pool onsite and the comfort of a completely secure compound with secure parking for 3 vehicles and a 24/7 caretaker.

Amazingly Place to Relax and Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxing place off the beaten path.. this is definitely the house for you! We spennt a week here over New Years and couldn't have been happier. The house has a/c in all rooms. The bedrooms and bathroom rooms are nicely appointed with all your basic necessities. Living and dining room are nice and spacious and the kitchen with bar area are just right. All the essentials for cooking and mixing drinks. That being said.. we honestly didn't spend a lot of time inside the house because outside is where you'll want to be. Lots of shaded area to relax and listen to the waves crash along the shoreline. The hammocks and pool area are a slice of tranquil heaven. Beach acces is extremely easy, just a short walk from your private compound door down the hill to a beautiful unspoiled beach. There are lots of local restaurants within walking distance so you can enjoy a cold drink while taking in some of the most breathtaking sunsets ever seen!

Alfredo, the caretaker, is a true asset to this compound. He is always there to help with anything you need and quick with a smile or lending hand.

Previous reviews state that getting to the house is an adventure.. and this is true. (But getting anywhere is half of the fun) Don't trust google maps or Waze to get you all the way to the house. These apps will get you to the end of Nic 8.. then follow the Perfeft directions that are provided to you from Martha, Chris and Damian.

Communication was great and they were very quick and responsive to any questions.

All and all we had an amazing vacation and truly enjoyed staying at Casa Del Mar and can't wait to return!

Great place to get away from it all

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a great stay in Pochomil. The house was perfect for our young family (2.5 year old and 7 month old). The beach was a stones throw away, and deserted. It was so great to disconnect for a week, spend time at the house and enjoy the simple things. Highly suggest a trip or 2 to the fish market. Also the housekeeper and cook is fantastic. She made our vacation a true vacation...never having to worry about meals or spending nap time prepping dinner! Fresh mangos from the tree by the pool were an extra treat!

Counting the Days Until Our Return

  • 5 of 5

This place is just awesome! Finding the home is an adventure, but once we arrived it was just perfect! Carlos (the caretaker) is so friendly and accommodating! The house is a great place to relax when you're recouping from the rum, swing in the many hammocks, or read by the pool. Once you're ready for the beach, it is literally RIGHT THERE! Walking in either direction is simply gorgeous, and can take you to some amazing local places for food, drink, and entertainment.

The house itself is nice, with a/c in every room, and a place to unpack if you're staying for more than a few days. The kitchen is great, providing basic necessities and a nice fridge and stove. To be honest, we didn't spend much time in the family room, but only because the view outside is breathtaking and worth spending every minute outside.

This time our trip was more romantic, but we are definitely planning on taking the children next year! I can't wait to go experience Casa Del Mar again!!!

I stayed at this place once in 2011 and once in 2012. I have traveled all over to warm places such as the Caribbean, Bahamas, Florida, and to Hawaii 9 times. It is by far the nicest place to go. Nicely priced, nice people, and a great house(even with a pool). One of the nicest beaches in Nicaragua. I will defiantly be going back here in 2013!

My wife and I had the beach all to ourselves!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at the house during our trip to Nicaragua. Finding the place was a bit of an adventure but once we were there it was great. It was really comfortable and the beach was amazing. The owners also have another lot right on the water that was close to the house. So we could have our little picnics right on the beach under the shade of the palm and almond trees. My wife loved that she could take a horseback ride on the beach each day for just a few dollars. I loved the little thatched roof cantina's on the beach where I could have a cold beer and some seafood in between body boarding. Overall we had a great stay and the price was good for what you get. Thanks Damian!
