Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cooper is an amazing place. The views , comfort, decor, weather, laid back town and beaches made our Holiday outstanding.

My favorite times were awakening to the spectacular setting from the many outdoor spaces and the sunsets from the front balcony. The owner George is so very friendly and accommodating. Nicaragua is the perfect getaway .

Owner's Response: Not only a perfect place but, a perfect family. Always nice to see a family get together and enjoy themselves. Patricia's family had activities to see the culture of Nicaragua from visiting the colonial city, a great boat ride up the coast, dinner in a secluded cove and just relaxing and enjoying a family time. We do look forward to their return. We do hope you enjoyed the transportation made with your arrangements and the beautiful culture of Nicaragua.

Beautiful spacious home with gorgeous views! George was a wonderful host.

  • 4 of 5

Only thing preventing a 5 star rating was the wind which rattled the wooden doors and windows awaking us at times during the night. This did not dampen the vacation though! Love this home!!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Casa de Cooper. Hope you enjoyed our curtisey late check-out we gave you. We are very fortunate to be able to have such nice breeze at our Villa. Sorry, you had trouble. Perhaps you did not use the installed Wind Locks we have on each of the windows and doors. These locks keep the doors and windows from rattling. We just want future guest to know we took care of the wind rattling severals years ago. We do note this in our Welcome Packagae but, we will try to do a better job in showing the guest where the Wind Locks are located on the windows and doors. Our guest's comfort is very important to us. Sandra and George

An amazing epic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We would have to write an epic novel to fully explain how amazing our experience was in Nicaragua and specifically at Casa de Cooper :). The house was absolutely gorgeous inside and out and so spacious for our family of 4 adults/4 children. We loved the beautiful architectural details especially the bathroom sinks, which were carved out of stone. The kids loved the pool, which they couldn't wait to get back to after our daily excursions to town or the local beaches. The views from the many balconies were beyond gorgeous. We could see the ocean, sunsets, fishing boats in the harbor, the statue of Christ, amazing cliff side homes, the forest where we zip lined, fields of green where horses and cattle grazed, and banana trees growing all around the house. We loved seeing flocks of green parakeets fly past us and waking up to the sounds of roosters crowing. George and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about things to do and places to eat. Weeks before we even arrived George helped us so much by recommending a transportation company to help us get from the airport to Granada, Ometepe, San Juan del Sur, and then back to the airport - such a gift b/c we had 8 in our party. George also provided us with a guide book to help us plan our stay in San Juan del Sur. We went zip lining, took surf lessons from a well-known and fantastic surf instructor, Baldo, went horseback riding on the beach, watched traditional Nicaraguan dancing at El Timon's, shopped at the local Pali market, and even went sailing. We were so thankful to also have access to the Pelican Eyes resort's staff for local transportation and for the most amazing snorkel/sunset sailing trip ever along the northern beaches. We can't wait to come back to Nicaragua, and we will definitely stay at Casa de Cooper again. Thank you George, Sandra, and the Casa de Cooper staff - it was the most memorable experience of our lives! We hope to see you again soon :)!

It is guests like you that make our day in knowing we try to make you happy and glad you rented from us at Casa de Cooper. We endeavor to make our Villa Family Friendly. Happy the children enjoy your private pool while you relaxed on your patio outside of the Master Bedroom. The adventure you had with Baldo sounded amazing. We are always pleased to help our guests with transportation. You are exactly correct in all the good eating places. The outdoor gas grill is a great place to have a cookout. Look forward to your return.

Stunning Vacation Rental with Views and privacy

  • 5 of 5

We genuinely enjoyed our 3 night stay at Casa Del Cooper! We had a large group and the staff was very accommodating and kind. The house itself is beautifully designed and built, every detail is thought of. We met the Owner, George right away he was very kind and hooked the men at the house up with some incredible cigars. We didn't want to leave! The kitchen is very well stocked and the layout is great. Views are epic! Tucked away but close to town, recommend having a car. linens and every detail is high quality and well maintained. The water pressure and temperature is a rare treat in Nicaragua, we were in luxury! We had a problem with an air conditioner is one bedroom a couple nights, which affected some sleep, but once we notified the staff they were quick to fix the problem. We hope to return for regular family vacations, looking forward to more great memories in this house!

About George Cooper

In 2004 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.

Why George Cooper chose San Juan del Sur

Located on a hill top near to the Pelican Eyes Hotel and Resort, Estancia de Cooper and Vista Paraiso has magnificent unique views of San Juan del Sur bay and the Palermo valley.

Vista Paraiso was carefully planned and designed in order to take advantage of the amazing views from each area of the house. This vacation home is private with 3 bedrooms, living areas and 4 bathrooms along with a private plunge pool and plenty of outdoor space. Prices shown are for four guests, three bedroom usage.

Vista Paraiso is a luxurious and exclusive local to call home while visiting San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
