|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Enjoy the off shore breezes while sitting in the upper Palapa enjoying your morning coffee overlooking San Juan del Sur and Bahia Nascacola. You can have your breakfast in the orchid garden while listening to the howler monkey's in the nearby forest. You can sit by the pool in complete privacy and enjoy the tranquil countryside. We are about 10 minutes from town which offers great restaurants, shopping and casinos. Our house has two wings with two private bedrooms and baths on the one side along with the main house that has a Jack and Jill bedroom that shares the other bath. The kitchen and living room are also on this side. As of August 25, 2013, my wife and I are residing on the premises and are available for information along with maintaining our home.
If you are interested, we will offer breakfasts for a nominal fee, depending on the number of guest. Due to our change in relocation here, we will share the kitchen area only.
My wife and I came to the San Juan del Sur area March 2012, and fell in love with this house. Originally I just wanted to do my own 'House Hunters International Tour' mainly as an activity and we ended up homeowners! This area reminds me of where I grew up in the hills of Pompey, NY, just south of Syracuse. The views here are endless and we don't have to worry here about snow!
Norman Maywright purchased this house in 2012
We bought this property because of the hilltop setting and great space it offers for our families. the house can comfortably sleep 6 people which suits our needs perfectly. We came to this area based on friends reviews and we not disappointed. The friendliness of the community and the expanding ex-pats that live there make it a safe, warm and enjoying place to visit and live.
We love sitting in the upper palapa (thatched roof area) drinking our morning coffee and looking out over the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean. In the afternoons we can relax by or in the 'cocktail' pool, in complete quiet reading our favorite books. Plus we've been making improvements to the property now that we are here.
Everyday exceeded our expectations during our holiday in Nicaragua! We rode horses in the mountains to exquisite venues, zip lined down the mountain with howler monkeys alongside, watched world class surfing on the beaches, and celebrated sunsets by the pool each evening! One day we chartered a fishing boat and caught grouper and tuna, saw turtles and dolphins and enjoyed seeing the town of San Juan Del Sur form the water. We took a day trip to the historic city of Grenada where we rented bicycles and then kayaks and toured the 3000 km Lake Niacaragua with a guide for the afternoon. The scenery was stunning and the birds, in particular were amazing! The friendliness of the people there is palpable and everyone was very helpful. The owners of this property, Linda and Norm, can direct you towards your interests and you may even develop some new ones! We had a wonderful time touring the cigar factory in Granada and my husband loved ordering his own cigars and tasting the different tobacco leaves available. Weather was in the 90's but a strong breeze kept us comfortable each day. We slept with the windows open every night. Bring your sunscreen! The owners are fabulous cooks and are excited about where they live and their beautiful home. They will gladly share their love of Nicaragua and add much local knowledge to the adventure! Can't wait to return!
We stayed for 10 days with our extended family, three couples and two kids and had plenty of room to relax and stretch out. The pool was nice and refreshing and was well maintained, cleaned daily by the care taker. There are excellent breezes that keep you comfortable during the day and air conditioning available if it gets hot at night. This house is the very top of the hill with no other houses above it so it is very private. Currently the road to the house is very rocky and you need to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle or there are 4 wheel drive taxis available to take you to and from town. We are in decent shape and we walked to and from town which wasn't an issue, but the hill might be if you are not in good shape. We rented 4 wheeler ATVs and had a great time. You also need 4 wheel drive vehicles or ATVs to get to some of the best beaches as they are down long dirt roads. The town itself has everything you could want including an amazing bread bakery and fresh fish vendors and a fruit and vegetable market and many good restaurants and bars. We felt safe at all times with our young children. The owners are wonderful people and nice to deal with. The pictures are a good representation except of the sunset...the sun sets are amazing, probably the best we have ever seen and you can't capture it with a picture. Enjoy!
We loved our 10 day stay at Casa Linda. My husband and I were interested in birding ( we saw many new bird species), hiking ( explored all around the San Juan del Sur area... found howler monkeys among quite a few other first time sightings ), relaxing and reading ( read a couple of books and slept in the hammocks). Enjoying our morning coffee and breakfast while watching morning come to the hill from the palapa and sipping our afternoon refreshments beside the pool were two of our favorite times at Casa Linda. The sunsets were spectacular. The description and photos of the property were accurate, owners were helpful, and we recommend this rental to others. San Juan del Sur is a small but interesting beach town, with delicious fish, tasty fruits and veggies, and delicious coffee.
We look forward to another chance to visit Casa Linda.
Zip-lining, surfing, horseback riding, sailing, fishing, hiking and other adventures. Of course great eats at local Restaurants. Oh yeah...don't forget he Tona'!
