Why John and Janet Stewart chose Rivas

We have always loved Latin America and fell in love with San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.

Wonderful house, perfect distance from town

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, kept spotless by the caretakers. The owners have invested in nice furniture, dishes and linens; a pleasant surprise in Nicaragua. . The views are stunning and the pool was the perfect way to play away an afternoon. The location is the perfect place if you want the quiet of the wilderness but still have easy access to town. It was 5-10 min drive to town depending on congestion. The beds are extremely firm like all mattresses in Nicaragua. The house is high on the hill, so it catches the breezes easily and on most nights the air conditioning is not necessary, Having the option was a nice perk on muggy nights.

My only wish is that there were a screen to pull at night to keep out the stray cats and minimize the critters. After dark the living area was not enjoyable because of all the insects attracted to the lights.

We will come back!

Perfect in everyway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful place! The photos don't really do it justice! Everything that is stated in the listing for this property was accurate except the view is so much more stunning than any photo! The home was spotless and everything in working order. There is also plenty of purified water on sight so don't worry about that. Jan and John were great in all their correspondence with us and so helpful!

Be sure and take their recommendations for restaurants and activities as they were right on the target!

Jan and John had recommended that if we go to Ometepe that we stay at least 2 days~We did not and I wish we would have. But we hope to go back someday and explore Ometepe again as it was one of the highlights of our trip.

You just can't go wrong with this property!

5 Star Experience

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better home to stay at during our vacation to San Juan del Sur. John and Jan were BEYOND accomodating with all of our questions and requests. Their home is stunning, very comfortable bedrooms, wonderful views and everything one would need to make our time away from home feel just like home. The housekeepers are wonderfully accomodating, they helped us with many questions and went above and beyond in their service. The home is situation in the perfect spot, not far from town to make quick trips in, but just far enough to make you feel like you are in your own private paradise. I would recommend this home to anyone traveling to SJDS!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this property, five adults stayed at the house and two more adults stayed a few minutes walk up the road at El Jardin Inn. The listing description is accurate, the photos do not do justice to this wonderful location. The property includes services from caretakers who live next door and each day the house and pool were clean and the caretakers are wonderful - very helpful! The owner stayed in touch the first day or so, very responsive and had great advise on things to do, places to eat, etc. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful location, just a 15 minute drive to downtown San Juan del Sur and about the same length of time to the closest of many great beaches in this area. Resting by the pool or lounging indoors is great too - the lush foliage, beautiful flowers, amazing birds and ocean sunsets every evening. Bedrooms are large and each with a shower/toilet/sink, very nice. Eat in kitchen with a large dining area and living room area - all open to the outdoors, porch and pool. Very easy to move about, make meals, etc. In San Juan del Sur there is an open air market selling various foods, and there is a grocery store located even closer to the house. We were able to easily purchase food for meals, snacks and drinks. In town are a number of restaurants, bars and cafes. Lots to choose from - sea food - mediterranean - bar b que - vegetarian - Italian - pizza - and a great bakery where you can order fresh bread every day. We did not have a bad meal nor did we have any problem with upset stomaches. Recommend: Rent a 4x4 vehicle as many roads to beaches are not paved. / Do the canopy tour located nearby the house, on the same road - really amazing! / Good restaurant - El Calibri and fun bar on the beach in San Juan del Sur called Iguana / Best - go to the beaches and surf, boogey board or just walk along the shore and enjoy the amazing views of lush, tropical forested rolling hills flowing into sand beaches and rocky, what a place!
