Looking for something comfortable and with a certain amount of luxury, yet still a little exotic and adventurous? Welcome to Casa Sueños, The Dream House.
Set in the progressive, boutique community of Paradise Bay, Casa Sueños is open air design and living at it’s finest. Located only a short 5 minute walk from downtown San Juan del Sur, Casa Sueños was designed by the renowned architect Christopher Robertson (Pier 39 San Francisco and Finca las Nubes) and represents some of the most luxurious, and beautiful accommodations in San juan del Sur. This private home is perched on a ridge overlooking the beautiful bay of San Juan del Sur and the Pacific Ocean, allowing for both stunning ocean and jungle views. Enjoy daily visits from the communities local flock of magpie jays, and other wildlife living in the surrounding jungle. Being nestled in one of Central America’s most biologically diverse regions, sightings of sloths, parakeets, iguanas, margays and hummingbirds are common occurrences for guests at Casa Sueños.
Casa Sueños is more than a rental home, it is also our second home. As a result, we make sure that it is always well maintained, and lacks that cold, rental space feeling. Above all we are delighted to share our wonderful home away from home with you in our absence.
Casa Sueños is a fully air-conditioned 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home boosting high ceilings, cool polished stamped concrete floors, and an open air concept that allows for fresh air to flow throughout the home. Both large bedrooms contain beautiful stone, en-suite bathrooms, large storage spaces, and views of either the ocean or jungle. Both bedrooms are well appointed with fine linens, pillows and two twin beds that can be joined together to make one king at your request.
Attention to detail such as large Japanese style sliding doors, unique locally made wood furniture and window coverings, local artwork, and decor, as well as genuine statues used in the filming of Survivor Nicaragua give the home a uniquely serene and peaceful feel. Casa Sueños provides you with the essential modern conveniences such as Wi-fi available in the home and on the grounds, flat screen TV, DVD, video library and comfortable couches which can be converted into beds. Boundaries between indoors and outdoors blend when sliding walls in the living room open to a large patio with ocean and jungle views.
As devoted foodies, we make sure the kitchen is stocked with everything one would need to make a gourmet meal. Gas range and oven, pots, pans, hand mixer, spices, large mixing and serving bowls, and dishes and cutlery for eight people. A coffee maker and espresso maker allow you to enjoy your cup of world class Nicaraguan coffee whatever way you prefer. A traditional north american style propane BBQ is available for your use, as well as all the necessary BBQ equipment.
Located just above the home is the incredible 15 meter infinity pool boasting an incredible view of the surrounding jungle and the bay of San Juan del Sur. The pool is shared amongst two homes, but rarely do you find yourself sharing it with others. This is the perfect place to watch the sunset over the pacific in the cool, comfortable pool waters. Comfortable pool furniture is provided for your use, and this is an excellent spot to simply relax, enjoy a cocktail, all while listening to the waves crash in the bay.
Casa Sueños is located a short 5 minute walk from the heart of downtown San Juan del Sur. The location of our home is second to none as a car is not required to take in the culture and amenities of this bustling surfing village. In town you will find fresh fruit and vegetables at the market, craft beer at La Cerveceria, ocean front dining at a number of restaurants, incredible cafe’s and eateries, exciting nightlife, and of course the beautiful San Juan del Sur beach. The gentle waves of San Juan del Sur bay are rarely big enough to surf. If surfing is your thing than we recommend renting a vehicle to drive to the nearby world class surf breaks of Maderas, Hermosa, Remanso, or Yanke.
An English and Spanish speaking “meet and greet” is included in the cost of rental. Our host can help you arrange a variety of activities in the area including zip lining, fishing, horse back riding, boat cruises, surf lessons, professional onsite massages, and spanish lessons. This home also enjoys the benefits of secure private parking, and the security of our gated community. Gardening and pool service is included, laundry service on request.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us for tips about the town and surrounding area. We are happy to provide you with our list of favourites, be it activities or restaurants.
If you do decide to rent a vehicle a four wheel drive high clearance vehicle is strongly recommended for accessing some of the more remote beaches north and south of San Juan del Sur. If you don’t feel like renting a vehicle to explore the areas around San Juan del Sur than we can arrange a punctual, friendly, and knowledgable driver at approximately the same rate as a car rental…and he can do surf lessons and take pictures of you and your group as you are catching your first waves. If this is a service that you are interested in then we suggest booking early as he is very popular in and around town.
If you don’t want to cook while you are on vacation, or you just want a break from eating at restaurants or preparing meals, we highly recommend that you ask us to arrange for you to have your own local cook and get to taste the exquisite local cuisine. You may have read a few positive things in our reviews about our cook Katalina…she is incredible.
Please inquire about our monthly and long term rates.
