Our condo is located in a very exclusive area of SJDS. It is a corner unit on the 4th floor with a magnificent view of the ocean. We are a leisurely 15- 20 minute walk to town along the beach where you will find amazing (and inexpensive) restaurants, surf shops, yoga, bars, rentals of cars, dune buggies, dirt bikes, and horses, , shopping, etc. If you prefer, you can ride a bike to town or grab a taxi for approximately US$6. There are excursions offered that can take you boating, fishing, zip lining, turtle and whale watching tours and horseback riding.
The balcony is furnished with patio furniture where we often have our coffee in the morning while we reflect on the beauty of the sea and the scenery of the mountains beyond the bay. Some mornings offer views of cruise ships arriving into port. Peacefulness does not begin to describe the feeling of sitting on our patio whether for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. We often have our meals on the patio as well, as I hate to waste the view and the sound of the surf.
We have two full bedrooms with two full (shower) bathrooms. The first bedroom offers a king size bed, wardrobe closet and drawers with reading lights on the nightstands. Opening the windows will allow you to hear the relaxing sound of the surf as you doze to sleep. The bathroom attached has lots of storage and comes with a hairdryer. The second bedroom has two queen size beds with a closet, chest of drawers and a safe. The bathroom also is quite large and offers lots of space to spread out. Both bathrooms offer very nice size tiled showers with contemporary rain shower heads. Both bathrooms and bedrooms have openable windows and both bedrooms have ceiling fans and A/C.
The living room offers a full sofa and love seat with plenty of seating, coffee table, cable TV, Internet and DVD player and ceiling fans. One can sit in the living room, with the patio door open and listen to the gentle sounds of the surf and the chirping of parrots.
If you prefer to rent a car, we offer your own reserved parking space. Getting to SJDS is a mere 2-2.5 hour drive from the airport in Managua. Car rentals are available at the airport or let us know so we can make arrangements to have a passenger van and driver transport you. We are located a mere 30 minutes from the boarder of Costa Rica and the travel agencies in SJDS can provide arrangements.
Our condo offers a full kitchen including full refrigerator, cook top, oven, coffee maker, blender, microwave, eating and cooking utensils and everything you would need to cook full meals (including the fish you may want to go out and catch). We also offer a housekeeper/cook for approximately $20 a day if you wish to have someone wait on you. There is a breakfast bar which seats four where you can overlook your chef making dinner.
On the roof top of our building, there is a jacuzzi/spa with a view that can not be beat. Take your wine up to the roof at the end of the day and watch the lights in town as we are located in the north part of town (just below the Jesus of Mercy statue).
The club house offers BBQ's, patio lounges, an infinity swimming pool and a jacuzzi/spa. You will have direct access to the beach from one of the gated areas to walk into town, swim in the ocean, or gather shells. You can have as much or as little privacy as you want. While many of the guests are Nicaraguans, many are also foreigners. We have visitors from the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Most of the business owners in town speak and understand English so there is little chance of any communication problems.
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation (with optional excursions if you wish) this is the perfect location. As we are on the 4th floor, we offer both stairs and an elevator for your convenience. Our condo has 24/7 manned security throughout the gated community.
You will not find a rental in SJDS that offers the amenities of being steps from the beach while relaxing in the clubhouse or the infinity pool. We are the only complex in SJDS that allows our guests to prepare their own meals while being able to enjoy their meal and drinks on the balcony with views of the ocean, the beach, the mountains, and the lush green scenery, yet being just steps from the beach. No car is necessary to enjoy all the amenities the beach and town has to offer. As they say, it is all about the location and our little piece of heaven has it all.
