About George Cooper

In 2006 we visited friends in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. We immediately fell in love with Nicaragua and this small fishing village.

We purchased this property as a retirement and vacation home after a 1 week visit to San Juan del Sur. It started as a 1 bedroom house and grew to a 3 bedroom house and a 1 bed room unit that is used as a honeymoon suite. We only rent 2 of the bedrooms. The third bedroom was a private suite reserved for our family. We have now converted this suite to serve as the Master Bedroom. We have 2 private pools and large private patios. We hope you will find Casa de Cooper as inviting as we have since 2006.

George Cooper purchased this townhome in 2006

This vacation home has 3 individual units, 4 bedrooms, 2 living areas and 7 bathrooms along with 2 private swimming pools and plenty of outdoor space.

Great location, close to town but not too close. Perfectly named Casita Romantica as it is a great spot for a couple! Beautiful place with amazing views! Some construction going on around and in the resort but nothing too disturbing or distracting. The pool is great as are the pools in the resort. We were the only ones in Casa De Cooper so it was nice and private. George was great with his communication and information prior to arrival. Highly recommend this place!

Stunning views and house was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home for the month of February. The pictures don't actually do the property justice - this casa we called our "pimped out Flintstone house" with all of the concrete, it was everything and more than we needed. We enjoyed the walk into town and back everyday to get our fresh baked bread and inexpensive fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. The BBQ was a perfect touch for grilling our fresh chicken and veggies. Gabriel (Property Manager) and housecleaning staff were top notch. They struck a perfect balance of respecting our privacy and making sure we were not for want. Sandra and George were a pleasure to deal with and we had no concerns about the rental process, any question(s) we had, were always answered quickly.

Our private pool was well used and much enjoyed. We even came to love the sounds of Noah's Ark living down below the hillside.

We like to be good guests (energy conscious) and had made a pact not to use the AC the month that we were there . . . although it was scorching hot some days, because of the plentiful screened windows and many ceiling fans, we did just fine without A/C!

We have travelled the world and this place is definitely one of our faves - we will be back! Kim & Jim

Wonderful home & excellent staff

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Romantica for 5 nights and we loved it. The view and the sunsets are amazing! We were walking distant to San Juan Del Sur and if we didn't feel like walking it was easy to get a taxi or have the resort pick us up for a small fee. The house was in excellent condition and kept very clean. We had everything we needed during our stay. We were hoping to stay again on our next visit in November but it is already book. Our loss. We will definetly stay here again.

Thank you to the Cooper family for sharing their beautiful home with us.

10 stars if I could rate it that way!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year staying at the Casita Romantica. Let me tell you there is no mistake this is heaven on earth. Everything you see in the pictures is that and then some. But to make things even more spectacular the quality of service you get from George and his constituents ia BAR NONE!!! We used the car service George provides from the airport to SJDS and back to Masaya and even that was outstanding. Quality cars great A/C and If you use them as for Evertz as your driver! As you can see I can't say enough great things about this place!

Do not pass go... If you are in the fence this is your house!

Amazing Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Casita Romantica for 6 nights when we were in San Juan. The place was even better then the pictures. Very clean, and the views were breathtaking, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Gabriel the property manager was very accommodating and provided us with transportation/taxi into town when needed. Great spot to get away from the bustle of the town but close enough to town as well. Highly recommend this place!!

More than wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Where can I start to express how perfect Casita Romantica was. The pictures don't lie; it is heaven on earth.

Everything about the place is perfect. The patio with the pool and a great view is just unbelievable. We started everyday there and even if we had stayed in Casita Romantica and its pool the whole week, our vacaction would have been perfect. We did go to beaches and the town, but the true core of the vacation... We spend it the perfect private pool.

The pool and so many other things are being taken care of by Gabriel, who works as groundkeeper. He is so nice and welcoming and helpful, always happy to help or answer a question. The same goes for Estella who works as a housekeeper. Always nice and polite.

Plus, George and Sandra the owners were always super quick to answer any interrogative e-mail I sent them. I didn't get to meet them, but they were always helpful and nice and... Yes I only have positive things to say about the whole experience.

I would recommend this place to everyone; From my best friend to my mom, everybody willl LOVE this place.

10 mins walk to town and the beach ; perfect location.

Wonderful view, it is worth the little walk uphill everyday. We always walked up instead of taking taxis, because the walk isnt this long and the pool once you arrive is the best thing in the world.

I could go on saying positive things about la Casita, but you get the point. Everybody needs to go there.

Owner's Response: Sandra and I are always happy to hear from our guests. We are very happy that everything was great and our team was helpful. We receive a lot of questions about the walk from town to Casita Romantica and are delighted that you shared your experience. Our future guest can see how easy it is to get from the Casita to San Juan del Sur center of town. Again, thank you for your all your remarks. We will be sure to pass this on to our team at Casita Romantica.

There are many activities and things to do in San Juan del Sur. Here are a few ideas while you are guest of Casa de Cooper. *****

Bring out the adventurer in you with Aracne Rappelling Tours. Rappelling down a 45-meter waterfall located deep in the forest, and then hike down following the creek until reaching a petroglyph made by the indigenous tribes that lived in the area before the Spanish came to America. *****

Da Flying Frog canopy tour is located just minutes fromCasita Romantica The tour is located on the Palermo Valley which can be viewed from any of the homes in Estancia de Cooper . It offers 2.5 kilometers divided in 16 lines through the forest. While on the excursion, you can see the wildlife of Nicaragua taking time to spot monkeys, birds and other animals. ******

If you are into fishing then San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua is your best destination for a new fishing adventure. Nicaragua has world-class fishing; you will hook up a Sailfish, Dorado, Mackerel, Yellow fin Tuna or Rooster Fish. There are many places in town that offer fishing trips everyday (minimum 3 hours), depending on the boat and how far you want to go. ******

Enjoy a day of sailing aboard Pelican Eyes or one of the other many sailboats available. You will have the opportunity to explore the pristine Nicaraguan coastline, peek at many of secluded bays, capture glimpses of dolphins, whales, sea turtles and perhaps catch a mahi-mahi or two – all while you relax, soak up some sun and enjoy our local fare and refreshing rum punch. ******

The hills surrounding San Juan del Sur bay are great for hiking. You can hike to the statue of Jesus, to the lighthouse or to several neighboring beaches. You can also take horseback riding along the beaches. Rancho el Chilamate is one of the best places for horseback riding and tours. Reservations are required- we can assist with booking. ******

Zen Yoga Studio is the place to go when wanting the best in Yoga. Their garden setting creates a calming effect, increasing oxygen supply throughout your body. Set your shoes and worries aside, grab a mat and join any of their professional instructors in the upstairs yoga canopy. They are located directly opposite the San Juan Pizzeria near the church square. ******

Nicaragua is well known for its world-class waves, specially in San Juan del Sur and Tola area because of the year-round offshore winds that hit the coast. There are great waves around for all type of surfers, from beginners to experienced surfers. If you need a Surf Lesson for you and your family or need a Surf Guide to show you around, then you best option is our friend Baldo, a well-known professional bilingual Surf Instructor, he is very helpful and enjoys playing on the waves. ******

Enhance your vacation – make it a true Central American cultural experience! There are many Spanish language schools in town that offer expert instruction with courses specifically designed for travelers and explorers. ******
