As soon as you arrive, you’ll feel this house, in the center of San Juan del Sur, is not just a vacation home; instead, you’re walking straight into a family tradition.
This uniquely designed four-bedroom house, built in 1972, and recently renovated, is the perfect place for friends and family members who want to reconnect, or for business partners to align their ideas and develop their visions.
This is not a house breathing the rawness of Nicaragua, neither is it competing with the luxury American style homes that are plenty to be found in San Juan del Sur. Rather, this house has a very unique style.
Combining breezy beach vibes of white planked-wood ceilings and simplicity, with a modernistic touch created by the use of bright primary colors, abstract paintings, most of which are painted by the owners, and subtle art. It’s your favorite art gallery being brought into the comforts of your own familiar living room.
Envision home-cooked meals over good conversations at the large dining table, or firing up the BBQ while sipping cocktails at the connecting poolside, sheltered by the shade of a local Guaiacum (guayacan) tree.
The characteristic small stairs throughout the house connect a total of seven split levels, making each space flow smoothly into the next, while creating airflow, privacy and integrity at once.
The different levels create many intimate sitting areas, leading up to the top and most authentic part of the house: a captain’s bridge-shaped area, overlooking a stunning front view of the bay. Look out the side windows and you’ll have a birds’ eye view on daily life in the picturesque streets of San Juan del Sur.
In contrast to the artistic common areas of the house, the bedrooms are clean and simple-styled, to enjoy a good rest overnight and wake up with a fresh and reset mind in the morning.
The same cleanliness and simplicity is used in the bathrooms. With hot water and AC, full comfort is provided.
Store away your laptop and relax.
Casa 72 is a place for people who recognize life as an art.
Like fine wine, the character of this house is developing more and more over time.

Amazing experience, Can't wait to come back!
This is my third time staying here and I can't wait for my fourth! The house is everything we could ask for and more! I have stopped looking for other houses in San Juan del Sur because I have no reason to stay anywhere else than here! Also, Luis (the caretaker) is fantastic! He is always available if you we ever need anything.
Gorgeous house in excellent location, perfect for families
This property was truly perfect for our large group (6 adults, 3 kids and a baby). Simply put, every inch of the house is stunning, stylish and well-designed. The rooms are comfortable and kept cool with a/c and fans, and the kitchen is well-stocked with all the equipment needed to cool at home. Luis and his family were truly wonderful and always available when needed. Casa 72 is a treasure in San Juan del Sur and we'd highly recommend it to anyone.
Lovely Home With Amenities For Everyone
Casa 72 had the perfect layout for our group of three couples. There were many seating areas, balconies, pool, bar-b-q and eating area outside in the shade, such that you could always find a quiet spot or gather as a group. Although the home is a little dated it was well looked after by the in house grounds keeper and his wife. They looked after all needs from water, clothes washing, even going to the market to pick up fresh fish for us for supper. You are close to all amenities and do not require a car for your stay. I would highly recommend Casa 72 for your vacation.
What a fantastic time our party of 4 adults and 5 children had during our stay at Casa 72. The house is stunning, the pool is splendid and I think a must if you go during the dry season as we did. Tons of space in the house for everyone. Was great that each set of parents and the children all had their own bathrooms.Luis, Darlene and their family are wonderful people and made us feel so welcomed and a part of their family as well. They even arranged a cake for us as three of our party had a birthday all on the same day. When we came back from being at the beach that day they had decorated the house for the birthday celebrations. Just such a great time. Would go back for sure !!!
Awesome family retreat!
This amazing house was the perfect setting for celebrating my wife's birthday with our kids and in-laws. San Juan del Sur is a charming genuine fishing village on the pacific coast and Casa72 is perfectly located to enjoy the local beach, restaurant and bar scene. The house keeper Louise and his family was very nice and helpful with information about local points of interest and activities. This is a place you will want to come back to!

Dani nos cocino casi todos los dias a la parrilla, deliciiooosoooo!!!
San Juan del Sur bay is divided by a river.
To the South, there is the town of San Juan del Sur, with stores, restaurants, banks, bars, etc..
To the North of the river, there are vacation homes, but very few commercial activity.
If you want to go from one part of the bay to the other, you can walk along the beach, or you can ride your car East on the road that goes accross the bridge to the other side of the river, and then back West until you get to the other side of town (La Talanguera).
Casa 72 is right downtown, so you can walk everywhere, and don't really need a car.
If you want to go to nearby beaches, you can always take a taxi or a shuttle, or you can rent a car for a day or two if you want, but you can spend your whole vacation without needing a car.
Casa 72's, even being downtown San Juan del Sur, is located in a quiet neighborhood, with very little traffic.
