About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Located 12km north of the lovely village of San Juan del Sur Nicaragua, this private villa boasts unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean from every part of the home. The incredible 15meter infinity pool overlooks the ocean and is the perfect spot to watch one of Nicaragua's incredible sunsets or enjoy a swim under the starry sky. It is also the perfect spot to watch humpback whales breaching in the ocean as they arrive in the warm waters off the coast of Nicaragua to nurse their young!
Casa Francesca also benefits from its location in one of Central Americas largest private wildlife corridors. Expect daily visits from the local friendly monkey troop, along with sightings of parakeets, parrots and sloths. Lucky guests have seen pygmy owls, and jaguardinis (little wild cats!)
With high ceilings, cool white washed stucco walls, and stone floors give Casa Francesa a large, open airy feel. The large screened windows allow for the almost constant breeze that the home benefits from to flow unobstructed through the home, keeping the temperature comfortable both day and night. Gorgeous wooden furniture, stone and rock elements, incredible paintings and blue decor are the final touches in this unique villa, lending to it a soft and natural feel.
This three bedroom 2 1/4 bathroom home is able to sleep five to six people comfortably. The two large bedrooms in the main part of the home each contain full ensuite bathrooms, comfortable king sized beds and ocean views. The third bedroom is located in the designated office space (located right at the pool, you can step right out of the office and plunge into the water) and contains a large, comfortable futon that can easily be converted to sleep one to two people.
The living, dining, and kitchen space all have spectacular ocean views, and are surrounded by large Japanese style sliding doors that you can open for uninterrupted ocean. Cook like a chef in Paradise! These rooms are also all located within steps of the 15 meters, stunning blue, infinity pool so you can take a refreshing dip whenever you so choose! Modern conveniences such as a Smeg gas range, stainless steel appliances, and a fully stocked kitchen make cooking that fresh seafood you bought from the local fisherman on the beach a breeze. Enjoy your meal inside at the large stone counter top/breakfast bar, or outside in the shaded patio at the large dining space. The airy, comfortable living space seats 6 plus people comfortable and is a great space to enjoy music and play any of the games provided in the evening after the sunsets.
CasaFrancesca is located either a short 15 minute walk or an even shorter 5 minute drive down the private road to some of the finest beaches in southern Nicaragua, Playa Maderas, Playa Majagual and Playones. There are surf board rentals, and a small selection of cafes to make your day at the beach both comfortable and enjoyable.
An English and Spanish speaking “meet and greet” is included in the cost of rental. This home also enjoys the benefits of secure private parking and 24 hour security in a locked, gated community. Maid service every other day and pool service is included, laundry service on request. Washer and dryer are available to guests staying longer than one week at an additional cost.
A 4 x 4 high clearance vehicle is essential for reaching Casa Frances, particularly in rainy season. It will also make your drives on the local country roads more enjoyable. Please ask us to put you in touch with one of our contacts in town regarding car rental where we can help you with a discounted rate.

Year Purchased: 2009
About: Casa Francesca was named for my daughter located under the striped hat (teenagers). Went to Nicaragua in 2006 to help set up Ocean Green Surfboards, environmentally friendly surfboards. Fell in love with the country and its people, both are beautiful and unspoilt.
Why Municipal de San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua:
The unparalleled views of the ocean, the sound of the surf, the songs of the monkeys and birds. Why would I go anywhere else?
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The ability to stay right in the NIcaraguan jungle while not giving up an ounce of comfort in this unique, modern and comfortable home. There is nothing better than watching the sun sink into the pacific ocean from the edge of the pool.
