Nicaragua - the new Costa Rica!

Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
San Juan del Sur, Rivas Department
I offer you my beautiful villa overlooking a gorgeous bay in San Juan Del Sur. Security protected (24/7 professional guards and gated) - one of 50 villas. I actually watched mine being built and was able to choose one of the best sites and views. It is one of the lower number villas so there is no climb up the hill. It also is farther from stagnant water so less chance of bugs and uninvited little critters.
There is a full kitchen, air conditioning which is controlled in each room, maid service and guaranteed gorgeous sunsets.
The complex has a well maintained pool and great restaurant. Travel agent on site will help you decide where to go explore. There is a zip-line above us, and ranch below, and surfing beaches along the coast. Water sports, horse back riding, ATV tours and activities are available. Many restaurants and shops in town....

Interaction with guests
There is always staff available to held you, and many of them have been there for years. The are courteous and reliable. I love to horse back ride on the beach. You can snorkel, swim, scuba, fish, boat ride, visit a volcano or a zip line, shop, eat (!), and happy hour is truly happy with ridiculously priced drinks. Have a massage right in the villa. I am available by phone if there are issues.

I stayed in this villa in January. We went to San Juan Del Sur primarily to surf. The resort was further from town than I was anticipating - it's not walkable. The shuttle service provided by the resort is great, it runs every hour on...More

  • Cleaning fee: €22 / stay - Fee
Additional Rate and Availability Information
The first week is $800 but subsequent 2nd or 3rd week, or part thereof, is $700 per week. The rooms are set up for 2 couples or a family with children. I have rented to a group of surfers who wanted additional beds. The will be a Additional Guest charge only if an extra bed is needed. If you bring your own sleeping bag or air mattress, there will be no extra charge. Feel free to ask any questions. Taxes, electricity fee and cleaning paid directly by renter to VdeP at check-out The electricity fee that you will pay can add up fast. If is highly recommended to turn lights out in any room you are not using and when you leave the villa, and not to leave electronic devices plugged in unnecessarily.

About the neighbourhood
San Juan del Sur is located just north of Costa Rica (you can see the mountains from my unit) and is located on a natural horseshoe shaped bay. When I first arrived there it was a sleepy town with one major hotel and a fun bar owned by a gentleman from Germany. He left because the town became too 'crowded' for him! The people are wonderful. The local surf shops will give you rides to the surf beaches. There are usually set-ups on the beach where the locals cook delicious lobster dinners. This used to be a shimp fishing town until too many shrimp were removed from the waters.
Getting around
Most people do not rent cars as taxis are so cheap. I do recommend hiring one of our drivers for the day to show you Lake Nicaragua and its volcanoes, or the local towns like Rivas. They know where to get the best of everything. I also highly recommend staying at least a day or two in the Granada - it is just like its namesake in Spain.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Managua: 132.0 km
Most people fly into Managua. I have just been told that there is a new airport where one can take a puddle jumper on TACA which is just 1/2 hour away. You can arrange a shuttle online, take a taxi (they are fairly cheap) or our drivers (who I trust implicitly) will pick you up for $90. We have a van which will take you into town to shop, eat, browse or go to the grocery store. It runs hourly, but the guys are pretty flexible for a small tip. Or walk into town - not an issue. Local taxis are very cheap.
