I built this place and have lived here the whole time. After 11 years running a resort in Ixtapa (Zihautenejo) Mexico, I know how to treat guests and live in a '3rd World Country' I have traveled all over the world chasing my dreams. I have climbed Mt. Kiliminjaro,trekked thru the Himalayas in the Kingdom Of Bhutan,explored the rain forest in Borneo,went Mountain Gorrilla Tracking in Uganda, rafted the Grand Canyon,hiked around Machu Piccu in Peru,scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef and drove thru Patagonia..Now I love living in Nicaragua and living this dream. Come down and visit and you will see why I love it here..
Owner/Manager purchased this House in 2007
Why Owner/Manager chose San Juan del Sur
I built this home myself and the location is the best. Just minutes from town,but on this private bay with 3 beaches right below me. I built this so i could be 'on-site' all year and at the same time,give my guests all the privacy they need. There are 'no surprises' here because i constantly maintain everything in a way only an 'owner' can do. It is so quiet here you think your are a 1000 miles from town,but it is only 7 minutes away. I am the ONLY house this close to San Juan Del Sur that has 4 private beaches right below the house. A 3 minute walk.
What makes this House unique
Great view, private bay w/4 beaches,watching whales migrate from my deck,surround by jungle with monkeys,birds and other wildlife. No noise from town,yet only 7 minutes away to go enjoy the rest restaurants and bars. I made a lot of this by hand and you will see why I named this 'Casa Del Soul' my soul is in this place and it has it's 'own soul' as well..Come enjoy yourself...

Great views, great place, great experience!
Wonderful, relaxing stay
4 of us women recently spent 5 nights at Casa del Soul and had a great time.
Randy was the perfect host. He was available if we needed anything, but otherwise you wouldn't even know someone else was living on third floor of the house. He takes great care in having amenities for guests, like local cell phones to use to call prompt, courteous drivers. Of course, we all fell in love with Chucho the dog. Brenda, Randy's wife gives a terrific massage. Yammi's banana pancakes were as good as previous reviewers have noted.
The house itself was perfect for us. The 2 front bedrooms with shared balcony were spacious, clean and had lots of outlets for powering up gear. Good AC and great windows overlooking the ocean. The balcony was a great spot for bird/monkeywatching. The pool was large and the perfect temperature for a hot afternoon. Rocking chairs on the deck were a relaxing reading or wine sipping spot. The separate apartment was spacious and perfect for anyone wanting a little more privacy. We loved every minute spent at Casa deal Soul. Thanks Randy!
My husband and I and our 3 three teenage children spent three weeks at casa del soul over Christmas and New Years this year. We had an amazing time and Randy went far and beyond to help us out with anything we needed. He even helped out my in-laws out with their transportation and lodging issues, and they weren't even staying there. The house is super clean and comfortable and very safe. The breakfasts that Yami made for us every morning were amazing and my kids became addicted to her banana pancakes. It is possible to walk to town, but the trip up is tough so a car is recommended, although taxis are very easy to get and cheap too. Randy was excellent at facilitating that whenever we needed them. San Juan del Sur is a great little relatively untouched little gem. It is fun, friendly and safe. You can walk to a beach from the house and it is lovely for walking, but we did travel to another beach for swimming and surfing. The pool is great and the setting is spectacular! We can't wait to go back sometime soon!
Amazing Vacation Spot
We traveled to Casa del Soul with our two children (5 and 8 years old). The house was perfect for our vacation and a great way to end our trip with total relaxation. The bedrooms are well appointed and provide a lot of storage. The bathrooms also have areas to store personal sundries, which I don't always find in rental houses. There is bottled purified water throughout the house. Randy was extremely helpful and Yami was great too. The views are heavenly and really the view from the main master bedroom is the best I have ever had. There are plenty of seating options on the patio and by the pool (great pool!). My only hesitation would be for families with toddlers that some of the railings are low or have large openings.
Great house & location
I rented this house with 6 friends and it was great. Randy was extremely helpful from initial e-mails to the end of our stay. The place looks exactly like it does on the photos and San Juan is a really fun town. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
