Luxurious Residence in San Juan proper - No Car Needed!- Maid Service Provided

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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

Casa Miramar is "IN TOWN" on the south side of San Juan Bay. It takes just four minutes to touch the sand (really) and maybe four more to reach the center of town, allowing for easy access to all town has to offer. Amazing views of San Juan Bay, back-up power and water, privacy, pool, AC, bluetooth portable speakers, extra surfboards...the house has it all.

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 excellent ocean and town views. 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 trees. No detail has been overlooked for your comfort. Well furnished and impeccably maintained. This is your home away from home.

Each bedroom has whisper-quiet A/C units and ceiling fans to keep you cool while you sleep.

All bedrooms are located on the upper story.

Bedroom Breakdown:

1 over sized King Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 over sized Queen Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 Queen Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 Queen Bedroom with shared Bathroom (view & balcony)

1 two twin Bedroom with shared Bathroom (no view or balcony)

Living areas in both Villas are downstairs with two complete kitchens, two living rooms, two dining rooms and two half bathrooms.

The outdoor area consists of a beautiful 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.

We also have a meal plan or cooking service if groups want to leave that detail to someone else. Just let us know.

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.

About Zen Yoga Nicaragua

We (Vanessa & Will) moved to San Juan in 2005 from Ventura, California, bought the land and built a house because we love it here.

We had our three boys born right here in Nicaragua and love raising them in this gorgeous country. Keeping it simple and free.

Will builds custom homes, coaches soccer and surfs as much as possible. Vanessa loves yoga and built and opened Zen Yoga in 2012, she is also very active in the community and at her children's school. Vanessa is also a doula.

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 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.

Zen Yoga Nicaragua purchased this house in 2008

Why Zen Yoga Nicaragua chose Nicaragua

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The house is in San Juan high enough for awesome views but walking distance to everything. The neighborhood is safe, friendly, and you can purchase fish, shrimp lobster, or beer on the way home.

What makes this house unique

Since Casa Miramar is IN town a vehicle is not needed. And, any beach for surfing or visiting is only a boat/car ride away. Additionally, the house keepers can shop and cook as well as their usual duties of cleaning. They make amazing ceviche, salsa, guacamole and fresh chips as well as natural juices.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send a big thank you for everything with the house last week / 10 days.

We had a great time. Ingrid and the services were amazing & the big house fit our group so perfectly.

Thank you so much again, we hope to be back next year !

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.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 staying at Casa Miramar and it was the perfect setting for us. The villa was very spacious and well set up making it very comfortable for us to have a relaxing vacation and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Vanessa was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed

The location is perfect with just a short walk to the beach. We even grew to love the hill walking back up from the beach.

We would definitely recommend this location to others.

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 women, and we stayed at Casa Miramar in Jan 2017. Two of the women had stayed there before, and had told us how amazing it is, so when I arrived I already had high expectations. Even still, everything about our stay at Casa Miramar exceeded my expectations! It was wonderful to meet Vanessa, and we were able to enjoy an amazing ``SPA DAY`` at her beautiful Zen Spa and Yoga studio. We also had a fantastic yoga class taught by Vanessa. We felt so well cared for the entire trip....the housekeepers cleaned daily and made us lovely meals, and the groundskeeper kept the pool and garden very clean and safe. We loved being a short walk to town for dinners out and for shopping. If you just want to relax poolside and be taken care of you can do that too....and the view will take your breath away!! Thank you Vanessa for being the best host I`ve ever met!! We will be back!! Jenn

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Our group (5 couples) stayed at casa miramar for Christmas 2016. The house was beautiful and the staff were amazing. Vanessa was always an email away for any questions or requests and we even stopped by the yoga studio a few times to say hi. She even had a dozen donuts delivered one morning from the local donut shop (delicious donuts by the way!). The houskeepers and groundskeeper were there everyday and were always very friendly and helpful. We walked into town at least once a day as it was just a quick walk. Would stay at casa miramar again in a heart beat!

I had two concerns regarding a trip to Nicaragua, mosquitoes and safety. I have to say, I have never felt safer than I did in SJDS and I never saw a mosquito on the whole trip! I cannot think of enough adjectives to describe how wonderful Casa Miramar truly was. I try to travel to a new destination every year and I never visit the same place twice because there is always another place beckoning. I CAN'T WAIT to revisit Casa Miramar. It is really that great. That is the highest compliment possible from me. And you should thank your lucky stars if you are fortunate enough to have Vanessa staying on site during your visit. She is better than a concierge and she makes any plan happen. I think having the meal plan was the best idea of the whole trip. The menu was varied and just delicious. The ladies really worked with our schedule and beautiful food would always be presented at whatever time we requested. It was also very reasonably priced and was such a wonderful perk. It was really a perfect week. Mazie

Cada Miramar

Will and Vanessa got to be proud of this beautiful house, they seem to have created an inviting home away from home, the house is beautiful and the price is very affordable. My family and I enjoyed our stay here and we will for sure use it again when we come back to Nicaragua.
