FANTASTIC VISTAS, DIRECTLY OVER THE PACIFIC, MINUTES TO SURF!

San Juan del Sur House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Hacienda Pura Vista, located between the beaches of Marsella and Maderas, and directly above Marsella bay, is an extraordinarily comfortable home that offers incredible panoramic ocean to land views and access in minutes to some of the most consistent surf and beautiful beaches in all of Nicaragua. Its hilltop location and multi-level covered deck surrounding design insures cool, comfortable inside and outside living year round and rain or shine without the need for air-conditioning (This may be hard to believe but true. Check out my reviews to confirm this fact!) allowing the sound of the waves breaking on the beach as well the monkey and bird song to filter through the house day and night. Additionally, San Juan Del Sur, with its shopping, dining, and nightlife possibilities is only 15 minutes away.

The upper two floors and the observation deck of the house are available ofr rental. The second floor incorporates a large fully equipped kitchen/spacious open living/dining area and a large LCD TV/home entertainment system design, with a half bath serving this area, and two bedrooms with two full size beds, each with in-suite full bathrooms, and a large bedroom with a queen size bed and a futon, full bath, and small bedroom with a full size bed on the top floor, sleeping a total of 8 to 10 persons (5 full beds, 1 queen, and a full size futon). A very comfortable queen size air-bed is also available for use.

Both floors are completely surrounded by large covered decks accessible by multiple sliding glass doors, and are topped with an open observation deck. The total deck area for these two floors is over 8000 sq. ft., providing comfortable outdoor living year round. A water back-up system and a full battery/generator power backup system is also incorporated, a must in this part of the world.

Daily house cleaning is available, as well as handy-man and 24 hour security services by a couple employed and living adjacent to the house. For an additional price, cooking services can also be provided.

Additionally, the first floor can be available for rent which has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a full bath, kitchen, separate entry, parking and wrap-around deck, either in conjunction with the upper floors or by itself. Separate covered parking areas are provided for both house sections. Please inquire for availability and pricing for this option.

About Chuck Smith

63 year old B&B owner, transplanted Texan and Nicaraguan resident.

Chuck Smith purchased this house in 2002

Why Chuck Smith chose San Juan del Sur

Location, location, location! Specifically, the view, the surf, the climate, the country and the people, the security, as well as being just a few hours away from the USA. Also, there are few if any houses in the area that offer the panoramic view that surrounds this house. It's just far enough away from San Juan Del Sur to provide the combination of easy access to town and true country living.

What makes this house unique

The views! Truly, some of the best that the world can offer. Closeness to nature; hear the surf, the monkees, the parrots. Incredibly fresh, clean air. Three minutes walk to the beach. Private, serene, and secure. Ten minute walk to one of the most famous surfing beaches in Nicaragua and a fifteen minute drive to San Juan Del Sur.

Epic Ocean Views !!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week with Chuck and Rosa at the Hacienda Pura Vista. The house is exactly as advertised. Clean, quiet, comfortable and completely "tranquillo". Excellent ocean views, close proximity to town and several of the best beaches in the area. The owner, Chuck is an excellent resource for all your vacation plans. Every recommendation he made was better than expected and his local knowledge is priceless. Cannot forget about Chuck's fury little buddy, "Lefty", what a ham ! We rented Chuck's Isuzu for the week and once again, "Chuck, sorry for the shredded tire". We will make it up to you when we return. Look forward to seeing the both of you here shortly as we have already made plans to spend a few more days at the Hacienda Pura Vista.

Myself and my family 2 kids 7 & 13 and 2 adults just returned from Nicaragua. We stayed with Chuck for 5 days in the beginning of your trip and it was perfect place to start our journey. Chuck was full of helpful tips and really knew the local area. I would recommend staying here its a great location with incredible views.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
Hacienda Pura Vista is truly a gem! The view from the home is simply amazing. The home is extremely comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. Very easy access to the nearby beaches is a plus. We traveled as a group of four, and could not have imagined our trip to Nicaragua without the three-night stay at Hacienda Pura Vista--above and beyond our expectations! Great environment, and great owner! Chuck is extremely accommodating, and assisted us in our daily adventures. I highly recommend this to anyone :) We hope to return again someday!

Time of our lives

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in San Juan Del Sur was wonderful. An amazing combination of excitement and relaxation. Accomodations were more than we expected, with views and ambiance you would pay triple for anywhere else. The owner of the property was a host/concerige/anything you need kind of guy. Extremely helpful in a foreign country especially with my tenuous grasp of the language. If we needed or wanted anything; ask Chuck- done!
The view of the bay and surrounding jungle/mountains were a continuing treat. The breeze was refreshing and constant. Usually when someone says "no we don't have air-conditioning, we don't need it", that is usually code for "you're going to sweat like a pig". In this case it was code for " you're going to have to lower the window some at night so you're not too cool".
And just a word: if Chuck says "the phosphoresce is in, we need to go down to the bay" DO IT. Even if it's at the end of your travel day, it's 10:30pm,and you're dog tired, as was my case. You will have a scene from Life of Pi experience that you will never forget.
My whole family went, and there was somethng wonderful for everybody ages 18-63. We can't wait to get back. If you are looking for an experience you will never forget, and you want to get more than your money's worth, give Chuck a call.

I hope that your house move back home went as smoothly as possible, and that your stay here helped ease the hassle that moving brings. Please don't wait for another move to come back, amigo. It was a pleasure spending some time with you guys and look forward to getting to see you again.

Wishing all of you the best,

Spectacular home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 4 friends found this gem of a place and could not have done better for a place to land on our arrival in Nicaragua. Chuck, the owner of the place, was there to talk on the phone and email to answer all our questions about the house, the location and everything else we needed or wanted to know to make our stay amazing. He arranged a pickup for us, a car to rent and endless local information on where to go, to eat, to surf and where to eat. The house, though a drive from San Juan, is a gorgeous little 10 minute walk to the perfect beach for beginner and experienced surfers. There a three little bar/cafes on this beach and it really is a great place to chill.
The house itself is spacious with amazing views that you can take in from the big covered varandah, either from a deck chair or a hammock big enough for three :) The sunsets are endless and the kitchen and living area are homey. We had the main level which had 4 queen beds in two rooms and then there is the little pagoda room upstairs that has two queen beds as well in two rooms. Chuck lives in the lower level and we are so fortunate that he does!

We will all go stay with Chuck again when we go back!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our stay from the beginning until the end. Although it was hot outside; with the windows open the breeze blew in and kept us cool. There is plenty of room and all is nicely kept. The view is definitely beautiful, and we enjoyed much time out on the surrounding balconies. We had a very relaxing and peaceful time there. We met Chuck, the owner and his dog lefty. Both are great! Chuck is very knowledgable and helpful and gave us many ideas of where to go and what to see, as well as recommendations of some good places to eat. If you are looking for a nice relaxing place to spend some undisturbed time, this is the place!
