My beach house is located in a semi-secluded area in a forest setting with other beach homes. The surroundings are completely natural, with trees providing shade and homes for all kinds of tropical life, including endless varieties of birds and the local Howler monkeys.
Buy your food in San Juan del Sur at the central market. You’ll find fresh produce, and a small convenience store with a great variety of imported goods and a selection of meats.
If you’re looking for fish, the local fisherman’s co-op in San Juan is a short walk down the waterfront in a small wooden building where a wide variety of fish come in every afternoon. And don’t forget your speargun or fishing pole, the water outside the house is clear and full of fish.
Once you arrive at my house, there is a small shop nearby that stocks some basic supplies and every other day a produce truck comes to the house with fresh fruits and vegetables.
A one kilometer walk down the beach you will find a group of four bars and restaurants right on the sand serving everything from fish tacos to wood fired pizzas in a brick oven. San Juan del Sur is only 20 mintutes away, and in between there are even more restaurants to choose from.
There are many great places to hike, both to other beaches and in the forest for bird and animal watching.
You can rent surfboards and take lessons at the end of the beach at the restaurants.
There is great fishing from the point at the end of the beach, and you can also arrange fishing, diving, surfing, snorkeling, and other tours from San Juan del Sur.
If the guest rents out the house for at least 4 people, they will have the house to themselves.
If guests only pay for 2 people then they will have to share the common spaces with other guests (if other guests are present)
Our caretaker lives nearby and will meet you with your key. He will be available to help with anything you need.
- No smoking inside the house. Outside is fine.
I am a Nicaraguan American, and have lived in Nicaragua for most of my life. I have lived in various parts of the world, including different countries in South America and the Middle East.
I enjoy surfing and hanging out with people from all over the world. Traveling gives me inspiration and insight into all the wonderful ways of living life. To me, traveling is one of the those marvelous gifts that allows you to see that your way of life is not necessarily the best, or the only way of living right.
I like to think that I am an easy-going and calm person that does his best to help out in any situation. I love to cook and read as well as take naps in hammocks.
