Private Ocean Front Home

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This very new and beautiful Oceanfront home is exquisitely located in a private yet completely accessible lot that is simply breathtaking, in the exclusive gated and secure development of Pacific Marlin, in San Juan del Sur. It is the only home directly in front of it's own little beach, with a 180 degree uninterrupted and expansive view of the Pacific Ocean.

Casa Samelia comprises 3 generously sized bedrooms with an easy-pull partition for a 4th bedroom, in addition to 3 1/2 baths gleaming with Italian tile and marble, large living areas, balconies, modern gourmet kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and marble countertops, and outdoor kitchen facilities which have been appointed with no expense spared and decorated by an interior designer. The property is completely turnkey with new, high end furniture, oversized flat screen TV, and internet access (all included). A just completed brand new Caretakers residence is included that also provides warm and friendly maintenance and maid service to the highest standard.

The outdoor area includes a large oceanfront swimming pool and seating areas reminiscent of the highest taste and standards of outdoor living and entertaning; just some of the many reasons why the established rental income is among the highest in all of San Juan Del Sur. Rent this home and the spectacular views from almost every room in the house and especially the entire master bedroom and balcony will greet you with the warm gentle ocean breezes each and every morning!

Many homes talk about a 'breathtaking view' yet are still so far from the ocean. This property actually delivers! Casa Samelia sits right on the ocean and delivers a perfect '10' in every category!

This property and its location is an absolute must see and represents exceptional value.

Horrible service

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at Casa Samelia for 4 days in June with a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 children. The house has a fabulous location, about 50 feet above the water with wonderful views of the Pacific. There is a staircase from the house leading directly to a rocky beach and we used this everyday to walk the shoreline. The beach is not swimming friendly and would probably be quite dangerous to go in the water there but walking the rocky coastline is a real treat.

The house itself is marginal for the area. It has a very nice master bedroom with a queen bed and excellent views. The two other bedrooms are small, functional and do not have views. The kitchen is spacious and there is a small family room beside it. This main area is not air conditioned and not screened either. The pool is adequate but missing a lot of tiles. The house is not particularly well maintained in general.

The biggest problem with the experience was the managers of the property, Aurora Real Estate. Their customer service was without a doubt the worst I have ever experienced. In our paper work our check in time was set between 2 pm and 8 pm. We were specifically told we could not check in early. So we arrived at the Real Estate office at 1:45 pm. Our intention was to drop by let them know we were in the area and then have lunch. We have two young children traveling with us who were hungry by that time.

When we went into the Aurora office we were greeted by a man who said "I have been waiting for you", which seemed odd considering we were told we could not check in until 2 pm. We said we would like to just eat quickly and then go to the house. The man said he was in a hurry and did not have time to wait for us. He wanted to leave work and go home. We told him the kids were very hungry but he said we needed to go with him then. We went because we did not want to have problems.

At the house, we were greeted by literally hundreds of house flies. Both within the house and around the grounds. We asked the Aurora rep if we could have the house and area sprayed. He said certainly they would get that done. The main rooms did not have AC or screens so the options were suffer with the heat or deal with hundreds of flies. Even if you kept the doors and windows closed lots of flies would get in with us coming in and out of the house. It took numerous calls and speaking to several people and finally on day three someone came and sprayed. The Aurora people simply do not care.

Owner's Response: Aurora cares about our clients and their enjoyment of the vacation rentals we manage. We understand that we only have one chance to make sure that your vacation is a great one. We have many clients that rent with us year after year because of our superior customer service, attention to detail and going the extra mile with our customers to give them the best possible experience in Nicaragua. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your time at Casa Samelia. We have been in the business of helping people have the best possible vacation in Nicaragua for 10 years and have never had a client who thought we did not care about them. The client checked in on Saturday afternoon. Our property manager had a vacation day on Sunday and was unable to fumigate until Monday. We do our best to take care of our clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week however this time we were unable to solve the problem quickly enough. We strive to give our clients the best possible service and for them to be able to kick back and relax and enjoy their vacation. At the beginning of the rainy season there is an explosion of life in Nicaragua. This can sometimes include flies. They generally come and go very quickly and this has never been an issue in this house in the past and has not been an issue for any other renter. Casa Samelia does not advertise AC in the common areas of the home. The home will undergo a remodel at the end of this year which will include upgrading the living room to include screen doors , fixing all the missing pool tiles, repainting the entire interior, and upgrading all the air conditioners in the home.

Excellent House and AMAZING view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation and the house and the view is amazing. I would definitely go back for another vacation. The home takers Maria and Bismark were awesome and so easy going. The only scary part was the ride getting to the house and out since it on a high mountain and the roads have very steep inclines, but if you have a 4x4 vehicle you shouldn't have any worries. I definitely recommend this beautiful house.

A Perfect Weekend in San Juan at Casa Samelia

  • 5 of 5

Great experiance from making my reservation to when I got to San Juan and met with Anielka. House was great and could have not ask for anything more. The home takers were awesome and so easy going. I felt at one point that I lived at the house and at the end didn't want to give the keys back :). Wife and I for sure would be back, since our family loved it. If not this house another and reserve with Anielka- Thanks for everything and see you all soon

Beautiful views, poorly maintained home

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful views from this home. However home was very disappointing in terms of amenities. During Christmas holiday our family had hoped to fix meals, relax and enjoy a few movies. This home is not equipped for preparing meals. There is no HOT water in the kitchen and water pressure is so low you barely get a drip of cold water from the kitchen faucet. No need to purchase dishwasher soap because it is not connected to a water supply. The water issue impacted the amount of cooking and sanitary clean up that could be done for meals. The management company reported that not having hot water was common in Nicaraguan homes. That may be so, but these are vacation homes advertising modern conveniences charging nightly rates. The small family room is on the same level as the kitchen and this level of the home is not air conditioned, nor are there screens on the windows. So it is very warm on this level and with doors and windows opened you get lots of mosquito and flies. Not a comfortable area for watching movies or relaxing. Off the kitchen is a great view and nice patio area. Howler monkeys are often playing in the trees nearby. The pool was clean but is missing about 25% of the tiles. Which overall reflects the lack of maintenance seen in the home. On arrival, the bathrooms had no hot water, which was repaired the next day. The washer was not working and took three days to repair, so we had to use a laundry service in town. Distance to town was a 15 minute drive. Maria and Bismark the managers on the property were helpful and responsive. I would not recommend this property as it was not a good value and home layout was not good for family activities. For great pizza experience try Blue Munchie, which was not in San Juan del Sur, but worth the drive. Reservations are required for pizza, as restaurant is operated with one employee.
