LUXURY HOME IN SAN JUAN..NO CAR NEEDED..STUNNING VIEWS & POOL!

San Juan del Sur House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Casa Miramar is "IN TOWN" on the south side of San Juan Bay. It takes just three minutes to touch the sand (Really) and maybe 3 more to reach the center of town, allowing for easy access to all town has to offer without any of the town noise. The house is ideally situated for the convenience of coming and going at your leisure without the requirement of a vehicle. Most groups book with us primarily due to our location and then are always pleasantly surprised by all that Casa Miramar has to offer. Casa Miramar is a spacious and private compound that contains two Villa's situated around an amazing courtyard full of lush landscaping. Both of the Villa's are situated to fully maximize the view which abounds from nearly every room. The front doors of each Villa open up to your private pool oasis and BBQ veranda. Upon your arrival you will be stopped in your tracks by the breathtaking views of the entire bay and beach. The exterior of the property is surrounded by tropical plants, flowers, and fresh herbs like mint in the garden...mojitos anyone? The home is newly constructed and no detail has been overlooked for your comfort.

Casa Miramar commands breathtaking views of the entire bay and beach. Each bedroom has whisper-quiet A/C units and ceiling fans to keep you cool while you sleep. Two large upstairs balconies off all bedrooms are the perfect location for morning coffee which is prepared by the full time maid from the best Nicaraguan coffee.

The outdoor area consists of a beautiful infinity pool with two small waterfalls and a spacious patio with a built-in BBQ, Pizza oven, and outdoor kitchenette. Out back and in the courtyard, there are plenty of areas to lounge and relax amidst the tropical landscaping.

With such a location, surfers can check the wind and conditions by glancing at the direction of the boats moored in the bay, and the size of the San Juan Beach Break. Boat trips for surfing or fishing can be booked by request on a modern and fast boat with a knowledgeable Captain for an excellent price.

And, for those interested in polishing up the Spanish, with advance notice we can have experienced teachers come to the house to conduct private classes.

Casa Miramar is laid out as two separate Villas surrounding an open courtyard, each with it's own kitchen so it is possible to rent a single unit for groups of six or less or the entire compound for groups of up to ten.

Come enjoy this beautiful and luxurious home and make it a place you bring your family and friends time and again.

Vanessa & Will moved to San Juan in 2005 from Ventura, California. We bought this land and built a house here because we love it here. We had our son, Max in 2006 in Managua, Nicaragua. Will builds custom homes and Vanessa teaches yoga. We enjoy the simple and easy pace of life in San Juan. It is a great place to live and the temperature is always nice so we are outside a lot. At the beach surfing, swimming, or just lounging by the pool. We have all the connections here for any excursions, spa services, etc to make the perfect vacation.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

The reason we bought the land where we did and built a house was LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The house is in San Juan but just up the hill enough to command an awesome view and avoid town noise. Within a 2 minute walk you can touch the sand and in a couple minutes more you are in the center of town. The police station is right on the corner on the way to the house so safety is not an issue. The neighborhood is friendly and you can purchase fish, shrimp or lobster on the way home.

Since Casa Miramar is so close to town a vehicle is not needed. And, any beach for surfing or visiting is only a boat ride away. Additionally, Cristell the house keeper can shop and cook as well as her usual duties of cleaning. She makes amazing ceviche, salsa, guacamole and fresh chips as well as natural juices.

ANOTHER GREAT STAY AT CASA MIRAMAR

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth stay at Casa Miramar and each visit has been great. We brought four kids including our one year twins and everyone had a great time. The owner arranged babysitters for our twins and the cooking and cleaning staff were excellent, as always. The pool was great - our kids would wake us up at 7am to go swimming every day and the twins really enjoyed the pool as well. Vanessa, the owner, was very helpful, arranging not just the babysitters but also - a sailboat excursion, yoga and massage classes, meal requests, shuttles to and from Managua airport, and a phone line to the US. The house itself was in excellent condition - clean and with some minor upgrades that has made it even more comfortable. With the upgrades we were able to have two of my brothers' families and our mom stay at Casa Miramar at the same time (7 adults and 8 kids). One of the upgraded areas of the house was the adjacent apartment that has been added. One brother and his wife and two kids stayed there. Personally, I really enjoy being able to walk to town and the beach and I enjoyed the 'all-inclusive' feel provided by the exceptional staff. I highly recommend staying at Casa Miramar.

FABULOUS TIME !

  • 5 of 5
We travelled with our daughter, age 7 and another couple who had two children, ages 7 and 4. Where to start … The villa was amazing and perfect for our needs with two separate villas, one for each family connected by a common area including the pool. Vanessa and Will were great, as they were able to give us excellent advice, like best beaches to take the children to learn how to wave board. The views from the villa are still etched in my brain, looking down on the town, beach, and fishing boats in the bay.

We also took advantage of the cooking offered, for a very affordable fee, having two wonderful breakfasts (the banana pancakes are to die for) and three dinners. I can say enough about the meals, the quality, taste, and convenience, especially with three children exhausted at the end of day from their adventures, made life so much easier for the parents to sit back and relax. We had one meal that was fish and chicken, another with fish and lobster, and finally another with pork. All were different but incredible !

While in San Juan Del Sur, we took several excursions that Vanessa recommended, like visiting Granada with its lovely town with something for everyone, from history, to houses with beautiful courtyards, to horse drawn carriage ride, to a final boat ride around the small island homes (would love to own one of those someday ) on Lake Nicaragua. As mentioned we visited some of the lovely beaches near bye the town and also took a wonderful Catamaran cruise that had snorkeling, secluded beach, and free drinks). While there, would also highly recommend taking advantage of the Yoga studio, Find your Zen, and Smoothies that Vanessa runs.

Some have commented on the short hike up the hill from town center. The location allows for excellent views and we did not have any issues with three children making the short trip but there are also very affordable taxis available if needed.

We had a few small challenges, but they were all easy to deal with and did not cause any undue stress. Vanessa and Will were always very responsive and can’t say enough about their hospitality. We can’t wait to go back to visit !

SECLUDED IN PARADISE IN THE HEART OF SAN JUAN!

  • 5 of 5
I arrived here on a honey moon vacation with my husband and was marveled by the amazing poolside view apron entry. We were greeted apron arrival by our super accommodating hosts with icy cold champaign and a tropical fruit basket. The house is beautiful and they did a fabulous job at accommodating our needs. We had dinner cooked for us for 5 nights and it was delicious. The best food we were able to find in San Juan Del Sur! Everything was perfectly clean and seamless the whole time except one lightbulb was out on a side table lamp and the remote control had a dead battery. That was fixed within 15 minutes so no big deal. There's lots of shade to lay out under if you don't wanna be in direct sunlight poolside. I look forward to returning to SJDS and would definitely stay here again!

OK..... NOT GREAT

  • 2 of 5
Stayed here the middle of May, house is just ok, not the best I have been in and for anyone with any kind of walking disability this is not the house for you. There are a lot of stairs in the house and would be difficult for older people. The staff was very pleasant and did a great job of cleaning the house everyday. Some confusion over who was to cook our meals and in the end we just finally gave up and cooked ourselves. Have been to SJDS before and really enjoyed the other villa and had a great time with the staff at the other house and had all our meals etc.. looked after.It seemed like there where a lot of promises about all sorts of stuff that was going to be taken care of and looked into and none of it was done. Sailing on the cat, fishing,spa treatments, cooks etc.. was all supposed to be looked into by one of the owners ( who by the way offered to do these things we DID NOT ASK) but nothing was ever done so we went ahead and did it ourselves which we where going to do in the first place until we kept getting told "oh no I am friends with them and I will set it all up for you guys no worries", Well we are still waiting!!! The whole atmosphere with the owners living in the apartment in the garage while you are in their house is a little weird and uncomfortable. We ended up leaving the villa and spending the rest of our time in Granada and did't return back to the house even though we had paid for 2 weeks, it was just such a weird set up . We have rented a lot of villas and none has ever had the owners in the garage while we where in the house. The staff seemed to be just as confused about the cooking arrangements as we where, why wasn't this taken care of before we arrived ? They did however seem to be busy doing the laundry of the owners every day that we where in the house. The pool is small but was working well for us the whole time, a out door eating area would be nice and maybe some lounge chairs and a umbrella by the pool for those that need to be in the shade. It would be helpful to also let your renters know that the BBQ is not gas and that you will need to get charcoal in order to use , maybe a list of essentials would be a good idea. Not a property I would rent again, was really disappointed in the whole experience.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our group traveled to San Juan Del Sur for a week-long vacation. Upon arriving at Casa Miramar, we were given a tour of the home by the owner. On our first night, Vanessa and Will left a delicious snack of homemade Ceviche and fresh guacamole- not to mention a case of cold beer in the fridge! The house was generously appointed with amenities that you would expect to find in at high end boutique hotel, not a vacation rental home. All of the comforts of home were available, such as high speed wifi, cable TV, air conditioning and heated water. There are breathtaking views of the entire town and the beach from the rooms and the pool deck. The staff of housekeepers went above and beyond by thoroughly cleaning the house each morning, offering to cook meals and even doing our laundry. Needless to say, we felt spoiled. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to experience the best that Nicaragua has to offer.

GREAT HOME WITH A SPECTACULAR VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Miramar for two weeks in February. It's actually two houses on one property perched on the side of a hill overlooking the beautiful horseshoe bay of San Juan del Sur. We rented one house while the other was occupied by another family. We didn't mind and, in the interim, met some great people. If you do want complete privacy, I highly recommend booking both houses. Otherwise, you do share some of the amenities.

There was a problem with the pool when we first arrived and it did take a few days to rectify. The problem was an algae bloom, while not harmful to humans, it's not exactly pleasant to the eye. Ignacio (Engineer and all around handy man) tried very hard to take care of the problem to the best of his ability. He was at it morning, noon and night! In the end, a pool specialist had to be called in. The owner did offer us compensation in the form pool passes at Pelican Eyes (a luxury hotel), yoga classes and massages. The pool was back to its refreshing self within a few days.

This house is perched on the side of a hill. Hence the spectacular views of the bay. If you have mobility issues, this property may not be suitable for you. There is a solution to this problem. Taxis are usually available in town for around 20 Cordobas (about 95 cents) per person. The town is small so giving directions is quite easy. You might ask to have them written down in Spanish if you don't speak the language.

I used to stay in Playa Marsella when I visited Nicaragua. Though very beautiful, it was too quiet for me. I do like the options available in San Juan del Sur. You have everything from yoga (Zen Yoga Nicaragua) to zip-lining (Da Flying Frog). Shuttles are available to other beaches in the area like Maderas and Hermosa.

The restaurant and bar scene are fantastic. We even found a Canadian themed bar called The Loose Moose where they sold caesars (Canada's flavorful answer to the bloody mary) and poutine (a heart attack on a plate). Patricia, Luz or Vanessa would be more than happy to help with any reservations and travel arrangements.

The house is well appointed with everything you will need. Linens, towels, pots and pans... If you need some groceries, go down to the local convenience stores (conveniently located in people's houses). There is a fish monger below the hill not 1 minute from the house. Vendors ply the streets with fresh fruit and vegetables! The owners and locals are lovely. We'll be back!
