Luxury San Juan Rental House...Stunning Views, Pool, Location!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

This stunning San Juan Del Sur dream house is 'IN TOWN.' LOCATION does not get any better than this! It is a short 3 minute walk to the beach, sand, restaurants, shops and the center of town. Yet, this exceptional home is perched on a hilltop ensuring privacy and sweeping views of the beach and bay from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcasing the view from every angle.

With 2 Large Master Suites (both with ensuite bathrooms) and one extra bedroom, this house is perfect for couples, large families, and groups alike and can sleep up to 10 comfortably.

This modern luxury home has a very open floorplan with all the living areas (ktichen, dining room, living room and office) having full sweeping ocean-views.

One of your favorite features is sure to be the expansive Balcony/Deck. This is the perfect spot in San Juan Del Sur for enjoying your morning coffee, or afternoon and evening cocktails as you take in the breathtaking views and breeze from your private perch on high.

The stunning pool area and expansive patio are ideal areas for gatherings or simply relaxing after your full day of surf, sun, sight-seeing, zip-lining, fishing or boating. You may even cook up a good bbq outside. There is plenty of room to lounge and relax amidst the tropical landscaping.

With cable TV and Wi-Fi, you can be instantly connected to the outside world when you want to be. For your enjoyment, no detail has been overlooked.

CasaMari is a spacious compound fully enclosed and secure with the house located privately above the deck. There are 3 condos below the house (near the pool) also for rent that can be perfect to accomodate an even larger group. The condos are 2 bedroom, 1 bath and can sleep up to 4 people. (Call for pricing and details)

The on-site staff includes a maid and 24/7 groundskeeper. Cooking services upon request. Also, we are happy to make arrangements for transportation to/from the airport and/or your own private tour guide to show you all that Nicaragua has to offer!

About Maritza Pastora

We are Nicaraguan Americans. We raised our 3 kids in California, but in 2003 fell in love with this house in San Juan Del Sur and found our second home. We travel back and forth from California to Nicaragua and we love the time we get to spend here.

Our guests love our house too. In fact, this villa was rented by a retired couple for a short-term rental and they loved it so much they ended up staying for 4.5 years!

This spot is our heaven on earth :)

Maritza Pastora purchased this house in 2003

Why Maritza Pastora chose San Juan del Sur

The reason we bought this house was LOCATION, LOCATION! We loved that it was walking distance to everything! 3 minutes from beach but far enough up the hill to make it private and away from the noise of the town. It was a dream location for us and our family

What makes this house unique

It's great that we can just walk everywhere, so we don't need to drive. Very cool surfing just a boat ride away... Our staff is wonderful and very attentive. The housekeeper Maria is a wonderful cook and we love her traditional breakfasts!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at CASAMARI was wonderful.  From the accommodations (including the private pool) to the helpful staff, nothing could have been more fun.  We rested and recharged when we wanted and made the short trips to the wonderful beaches when we felt the urge for some sand time.

I had not surfed in years.  But, I found it to be like riding a bike. Once you learn, you never forget.  The waves and the ocean could not have been more pleasant. Anyone looking to kick back, relax and still have enough excitement to keep it interesting could not go wrong with a trip the San Juan.

CASAMARI was prefect for the two of us. We walked everywhere. Always felt safe and had great inexpensive meals.  We were so taken with the area, that we are looking for a long term rental or maybe a home purchase in the area.

The Eagles some place paradise...kiss it good bye.  I hope this does not happen to San Juan.

We will return to CASAMARI next year.

Thanks for a wonderful stay and experience.

We spent an unforgettable month in San Juan del Sur and it was mainly due to the wonderful accommodations at Casa Mari and the people we met. Maritza was excellent with her correspondence and everything went without a hitch. The home is beautiful and well taken care of. Maria is a very efficient and a lovely person. Raul is helpful with anything that needs taking care of. They made the stay extremely comfortable. It's just a short walk to any part of town. The swimming pool at the house is a wonderful way to spend the heat of the day. There are suites on the bottom floor of the home but are separate

Communication was great from beginning to end, helped us with a ride from the airport, house is as good or better then pictures. It's in the perfect spot, close to beach and downtown but out of the bustle at the same time. The people on site were great and helped whenever necessary. the residents in the sweet below are also awesome and helped us navigate town and then to top off everything one of the best viewpoints you can imagine. Your in good hands at Casa Mari!

Perfect Taste of Nicaragua!

  • 5 of 5

We originally wanted to stay at CASAMARI, however some of our family could not join us. Maritiza offered us a two bedroom condo as an alternative on the ground floor of this property. It was a perfect solution. Mari kept the communication and arrangements ahead of time so we felt secure in vacation stay. Upon arrival, Raul was there to greet us and show us around. The small condo was just fine for us (husband and his parents). The property is located just up a few streets from town, great for walking around, going to dinner...we felt very safe. The condo had everything we needed...mainly air conditioning! We sat outside by the pool, enjoying the view. There were two other condo's with a lovely couple and another unit with a lady that would not say hello or smile. I was originally reluctant to rent with three units downstairs and one upstairs sharing the pool, but really we did not see other tenants much during our stay. The upstairs three bedroom unit was really nice, I would want to stay there next time I visit SJDS. This location really is perfect for being close to town.

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spend 5 weeks at CASAMARI in April/May... and absolutely loved it.

We were very cautious travelling with 3 kids under 12 to a foreign + less fortunate country where few people spoke English (and we didn't speak Spanish!). Everything from the booking/deposit/communication with the owner to the property was excellent. The owner Mari was amazing in all communications, giving us peace of mind before and during our stay. When we did encounter problems/needed assistance, Maria/Raul were there to help.

The house itself is beautiful large 2 story house, with the top story being the 'house', and the bottom being 3 side by side condos. Everyone shares a pool and BBQ area on the bottom level, while the deck on top is private to the house. The house is very large (pictures don't reflect the size). There are 2 huge bedrooms (king, x3 doubles) and a third smaller room (double). Wireless internet was excellent... and very important as we had to work down there. Words can't describe the 180 degree views of the bay, the sunsets - whether looking out of the 8' windows inside or outside on the covered deck.

Location is approximately 2 blocks from the beach, and 3 blocks from town. No car is required... in fact it's cheaper to hire car/drivers or take shuttles to/from the neighboring areas. Life is simple and slow... which is why we went. While there is lots to do, don't expect many first world amenities, or decent medical services for that matter (bring a good first aid kit-antihistamines and antibiotic ear drops are essential). Food choices are simple, local, cheap - whether buying from the market or eating out (we did it all with no bad experiences). The beer is always cold and amazing... often a great meal replacement for the adults!

Expect occasional power outages common in Nica... Having a cell phone was important for communication (minutes/data are cheap). Expect roosters and dog barking late night/early am, and music to be heard til 2am on party nights (Semena Santa is a 7day 24hr party... LOUD!; bring earplugs if you are light sleeper!). This simply added to the atmosphere... and we felt safe the entire time.

We highly recommend CASAMARI, and feel it is easily the best house rental in SJDS. We simply can't wait to return!

Best View in San Juan Del Sur

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and the unit was not cleaned, but the grounds person, Raul, immediately called the owner who got the housekeeper, Maria, there within 15 minutes. All issues are resolved immediately and Raul and Maria are great. The unit sits above 3 condos below and this unit is the entire 2nd floor. It is accessed by a flight of stairs. It has a fabulous, large balcony that overlooks the entire bay. The view is worth the price of admission. It was very comfortable for 4 of us. There are two master suites, so the small 3rd bedroom must go into one of the master suites to use the bathroom. The kitchen was very well appointed. The rest of the condo has a lot of seating and beds for up to the advertised 14 people. If you are a cat lover, there are two stray cats that live on the grounds, if you're not a cat lover, keep the door closed as they tend to wonder in and out of the condo. The water in the city is turned off in the night, so remind Raul to have the reserve tank filled prior to the evening each day. If you don't need water or need to use the sinks or toilets in the night, it's not a problem. The pool is small but gets enough sun to lounge around and is shared by all 4 units. It's the absolute best place to stay if you want to be close to town. Walking to town was a breeze, however, for those that have difficulty walking, it does require going down and then back up a short but steep cobblestone road. Being close to town has the above advantages, but also be aware that you will hear all the noises of town - music, roosters at 2:15 AM until about 6:30 AM, lots of dogs barking. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our needs.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on the weekend of August 11. My daughter was immediately enamored with the the fact that she would have her own personal pool. She immediately wanted to jump in as we were still unloading our luggage. Casamari sits a prominent hill that overlooks the entire crescent shaped bay of San Juan. The rooms, beds, kitchen and appliances were everything one has come to expect from the USA. We had cable (not that we watched it that much) and a phone line to the states to brag to everyone what an incredible time we were having. The young man who watches the property was able to score us about 60 wonderful warm tortillas which lasted us the entire week we were there. We would sit in the mornings looking at the sun rise drinking our rich tasting Nicaraguan coffee with wonderful "queso ahumado" and those tortillas. In the morning we would enjoy the pool and at lunch time we would walk down to the beach and get something to eat and stay there the better part of the afternoon. San Juan is unlike many Latin American surf spots in that the vendors (although present) really don't harass you and let you enjoy the view drink a beer and play in the waves without bothering you. At night we would retire back to Casamari or go for a walk in the incredibly safe town where everyone knows each other and tourist walk around safely. We LOVED our stay and hope to go back!
