Beautiful, quiet residence in San Juan del Sur. Two minutes slow walk to the nearest restaurants and shopping. Located directly on the malecón fronting San Juan del Sur. The 'action' begins 1 1/2 blocks away.
Historically San Juan del Sur has been the favorite vacation destination for all Nicaraguans...those with financial means and those with less financial means. Mark Twain visited. Cornelius Vanderbilt made 3 steamship visits to Lago de Nicaragua, 12 miles from San Juan del Sur. You will pass by Lake Nicaragua on your way to San Juan del Sur and will see the two volcanoes on the Ometeppe Island. One volcano is active.
There is no end to sightseeing just minutes outside of San Juan del Sur. Miles of pristine, unpopulated beaches. Forests, jungles, wildlife. Visit my ranch (wildlife reserve) of 1,100 acres 20 minutes from San Juan del Sur. Out on the horses one will see three species of monkeys (howler, spider, white face), deer, wild turkeys, coyotes, sloths, anteaters, small native tigers, and numerous species of wildfowl. A tapir even makes an appearance on rare occasions. We grow our own coffee, rice, beans and corn. 2,000 orange trees, 1,000 mango trees, and 200,000 hardwood trees of several different varieties...planted 4 years ago. With the favorable climate in Nicaragua the fruit trees, vegetables, and hardwood trees grow like 'weeds'. Truly amazing to witness.

Retired medical doctor from Minnesota. I have lived in Nicaragua since 2001. I built this home. My six children and six grandchildren love to visit.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Owner chose San Juan del Sur
Nicaragua has the friendliest people in the world. Miles of beautiful unpopulated beaches. Beautiful jungles within minutes of town. Horseback riding on my 1100 acre ranch with views of the Pacific Ocean. 100 year old ranch house.

Awesome place to stay and a great host...!
A very nice beach front property...!
Located in at town center with walking access to every bar and restaurant in the city.
Very comfortable place that invites you to stay a the home enjoying the pool and a great time with your group.
Nothing else to ask...!
Beautiful home that has everything you may need (kitchen, pool, AC, parking, plenty bedrooms and sitting/relaxing area). Keith is wonderful and checked in on us throughout the stay. Aura and Silvia (helpers) were kind and lovely to be around. They helped prepare the meals and made sure we felt comfortable at the house. We stayed during easter week, which is naturally loud and packed with parties -- so if you don't like that, then don't go for easter week. Also there is a fish market nearby to buy fresh fish. There is a local market and many places to go eat. Overall, 5 stars!!
Thank you very much Dr Mancebo. I hope you return soon. The staff greatly appreciated the thoughtfulness of your group.

Can't get any better
The location is great, the rooms are great, the pictures don't do the spaciousness justice. It is bright and very open.
A horse back ride on Kieth's ranch should be mandatory-the horses are gentle and sure-footed.
Our hosts are gracious and helpful, they treat you like old friends.
The staff are great and friendly.
The two k. Beach is across the road.
The only thingwrongwiththis is my poor Spanish.
We are halfway through our two week stay and definitely thinking seriously about returning next year-all eight of us
veryy well located
We stayed at Keith's house (Las Palmas) in 4 night in August 2015. We were a party of 15 people (3 families, 6 adults and 9 children aged from 8 to 15). The house was the perfect size and had the perfect location. We didn't have cars so we all appreciated being so close the shops, the restaurants and the beach. We had access to the kitchen to prepare our own meals. Marta (housekeeper) also cooked for us. We went to see the turtles lay their eggs and the children took surfing lessons. We went horseback riding with Chito. That was certainly one of the highlight of our trip. I have to admit that when we learned that we would not go on the beach with the horses (the #1 thing to do in sjds according to Trip Advisor), we were not so sure. But we would have missed the amazing views from the mountains. The children loved spending some time on the ranch. And the horses were perfect, the children would certainly have taken a lot more on the horses.
Je vous encourage à louer cette maison. Vous ne serez pas déçu. Et si vous parlez français, vous aurez la chance de faire la conversation avec Keith.
The Perfect Place
Five women spent 4 wonderful days in San Juan del Sur and found this beautiful villa to be the perfect place for us. We had access to the quiet beach town with all the restaurants and activities within walking distance. The security provided restful nights. We were welcomed by Keith and his staff, meals were wonderful and if we had not been touring other cities in Nicaragua we would have loved to stay all 11 days here. Enjoy....you won't be disappointed!
