What a beautiful, spacious villa. It was hard to leave with 3 balconies, all with fantastic views. We could have stayed at the vila all day and been happy. 3 levels with a full bathroom on each level. Very comfortable beds too! It can be a bit of a walk without a car, but we walked up and down every time, usually twice a day. Where else can you have such a beautiful view walking steps. I would definitely stay in Villa Florida again.

Oustanding view of San Juan del Sur from this gorgeous villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa at Pelican Eyes is at the top of the mountain with the most outstanding views of the bay at San Juan del Sur. The villa is beautiful, with indoor/outdoor views from every living space/every floor. For a 2 bedroom villa, this place is huge and allows for plenty of people to sleep and spread out. Check in was smooth at the front desk, and the staff on-site at Pelican Eyes was very helpful for anything we needed. Quite the bang for the buck at this villa. The owner was also quite responsive if I ever needed anything answered during my stay. If you want to be perched up on the hill overlooking the bay of San Juan del Sur and have a luxury experience AND still be within walking distance of the downtown restaurants and shops, this is the place for you!

Great vacation in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Florida is a beautiful villa perched high atop the hill at the Pelican Eyes Resort. Spacious villa with a kitchen, dining room, and living area on the first floor. There were ceiling fans and windows with screens (except for one set of windows where there were cut-outs in the wood surrounding the screen) and a/c worked like a dream. One of the 3 patios in the unit came off this living area and we enjoyed our breakfast and sunset-viewing there. The kitchen had a stove/oven, coffee maker (but no filters), ground coffee, a toaster, microwave, juicer, and a few cooking bowls, pots and pans. There was also full sized fridge and freezer. Silverware and basic utensils were provided. For a fee, the resort will give you a large water cooler bottle of purified water for a dispenser in the kitchen. In the dining room there was a supply of plates and glassware The bedrooms and downstairs and also had plenty of room. There was a nice dressing area in each bedroom and spacious bathroom. A mini fridge and coffee makers were in the dressing area as well. Plenty of hot water! The patios off each bedroom and the views were wonderful.

A few items to note. Since the resort is in a natural setting and this unit abuts a green area, we had ants in the kitchen each night. We figured this was unavoidable. Bring extra ziplocks if you plan to purchase food and leave it on the counter. We stored the bananas in the microwave. Consider bringing some ant traps. There was a bottle of dishsoap and a sponge but no other cleaning products. On the one weekday morning of our stay, we were greeted by the sounds of a fruit vendor who hawked his wares over a loud speaker in the village below. Since the unit abuts a steep hill with a SDJS neighborhood below, we heard said vendor and the local dogs quite clearly. Fortunately he took the weekend off. The unit is at the very top of the resort so the views are fabulous. To walk to the rest of the resort, there is a packed dirt road that leads to the ubiquitous stairways that go everywhere in the resort. It took us maybe 5 minutes to walk to the family pool and bistro and 8 to get to the main pool and restaurant. Walking up was good exercise! There is transport within the resort - $5 one way to go into town. A phone call from the restaurant staff will get you a return trip.

John was very helpful and responsive. We did the sailing excursion at his suggestion which was great. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Alice, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Florida. Ants are always a challenge in Nicaragua and I will ensure we stay on top of that. Also, moving forward I will ensure that we have fresh purified water delivered at check-in for our guests. Thanks for the nice review and we hope you visit us again soon.

The best San Juan Del Sur has to offer

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here and had a wonderful time. I have a 2 and 5 year old and the gated community and security made us feel very safe. The place itself is top notch. Clean and modern but still has a Nicaraguan flavor. Would highly recommend.

Top 5 in a Life of Traveling!!! Stunning Says it All...

  • 5 of 5

When I look for a place to stay, I don't look at the ones on page 1 or 2 of VRBO, AirBnb or Fodors. I have found the "pearls" can hidden on the second or third page or in the small print. So, using this technique, I have had the fortune of staying in the most unique, jaw dropping and stellar places that many others have never heard of. And, after 40 years of traveling on all 7 continents, I put this one in the top 5. Easily.

When I first went to Nicaragua, Pelican Eyes was still in its growing phase. This casita hadn't even been built. Now, returning 6 years later, I decided to stay here, again to see how it had changed. I found this listing by my tried and true method, looking further down the 130 home rentals on VRBO - and, again, I was wonderfully rewarded by this casita. Pelican Eyes has grown, services enhanced, maintained, but beyond what the resort does to its property, John, the owner, has gone overboard in his desire to make this home one of the best of the best here.

House design, furniture, details, cleanliness , showers!!, kitchen, TV, internet, A/C and more - all perfect and amazing to see. Walk in and you will feel lucky that you chose this house. Then look at the view and hopefully you have picked up a bottle of Flora de Cana, because you will drop your bags, pour a drink and sit and take in the view. What a way to end a long trip from the US.

Beds are comfortable - in fact the whole place is perfect for lounging, napping or reading as you gaze at the harbor. The outside grounds are beautiful and there are three pools to choose from one perfect for kids as well as adults. Great restaurants and bars and service is great. Pelican is located 2 minutes from the town so you can, walk the town , eat, cavort and be back in your villa in minutes. And, whenever you return you will be happy and feel very lucky you chose this place. This place bumped a small pensione in Italy off my top 5, but staying here will truly enhance your visit to this beautiful little oasis called San Juan del Sur. I'll be back. Just don't reserve my vacation time!!

I could not have been happier with our stay in beautiful San Juan del Sur. The pictures on the web site show exactly what my family and I encountered. The villa - Casa Florida - was amazing and the resort staff super accommodating. Communication with the owner was efficient and pleasant. This was the best Independence Day vacation ever!!! I hope we get to come back some day. Thanks for making it so memorable for us!!
