About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
Located only a short 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants and bars, our home features an open air living environment with a floorplan that flows onto the front veranda through 4 gorgeous custom built wooden glass doors that do not obstruct the views of San Juan del Sur Bay, the quaint town and surrounding jungle. Casa Colina was designed and built to North American earthquake standards by renowned architect Chris Robertson (Pier 39 San Francisco and Finca Las Nubes) on a ridge in the gated, boutique community of Paradise Bay. Our property features a large stone terrace that is an excellent space for yoga. Our guests can enjoy daily visits from exotic birds like white throated magpie jays, motmots, kiskadees, baltimore orioles, doves, hummingbirds and the occasional appearance of wild budgies. It's not uncommon to see Howler Monkeys in the trees surrounding the pool.
Casa Colina is more than a rental home, it is also our second home as we do spend several months a year enjoying the sights, sounds and our friends of San Juan del Sur. As a result, we take great pride in maintaining our home to the highest standards. Our guests comment that it does feel and look like a home, not a hostel or cold rental space like many other casas in the area. We would be delighted to share our incredible home away from home with you in our absence.
Our home is quite private, and while the 4 m x 8 m (12 ft x 24 ft) infinity pool, arguably the largest in San Juan del Sur, is considered shared, it is only shared with the adjacent twin house and rarely would you find yourself sharing it with others. Because of the terracing, and the other house being below ours, anyone staying there cannot see into any of our spaces and vice versa. The pool is located behind the other house, but adjacent to ours. Anyone staying in the other house cannot see the pool, but there is a great view of the pool from our master bedroom and front veranda.
The bathroom in the master bedroom is only accessible through the bedroom, making it a very private space. The main bathroom is ensuite to the second bedroom but also accessible from the main living area through a separate doorway. Both bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans while the loft bedroom has two wall fans directed at the sleeping area. Due to the constant gentle breeze, air conditioning in the main part of the house is not necessary.
Keywords: 2 bedrooms with king size beds, private loft with two twin beds, 3 twin sofa beds, oceanview, infinity pool overlooks ocean & town, covered veranda with rocking chairs and hammocks, separate large terrace and gas bbq.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: From California originally, but spent much traveling in the Tropics. Found Nicaragua almost six years ago and almost immediately was hooked. The people, the beaches, the culture, the scenery, and overall vibe is what attracted me most.
Why the Owner Chose Las Pampas, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua:
The view is what really sold me. Being able to gaze out over the picturesque town of San Juan, and see the waves is exactly what I was looking for,.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Colina is truly a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants and only another 3 minutes to the beach. The views of the valley, mountains, town, bay and ocean are spectacular. We can literally sit for hours at the pool or on the verandah and stare off with only the birds to interrupt the scenery and night lights. The peace and tranquility of this area is at the south end of San Juan del Sur and really doesn't require a car as do the other surrounding developments. And if we're feeling lazy, a quick inexpensive taxi ride gets us to where we need to be. There are plenty of inexpensive taxis and shuttles to get you to nearby surfing beaches as well as tour companies that can do longer day trips to outlying areas. The beach in SJDS is great for playing in the small surf or laying about, with plenty of bars and restaurants to serve you. The marina there offers fresh seafood for sale, fishing trips and fun sailing excursions to nearby beaches.
