Rivas Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom + den, 3 Bathroom with Ocean and Jungle View

Located in the exclusive boutique community of Balcones de Majagual, Casa Suerte is one of the eleven luxury homes spread out over 100 acres. Private access and gated community allow our guests the ultimate experience in the jungles of Nicaragua.

Casa Suerte features views directly out to beautiful Majagual beach, and it is often easy to spot passing humpback whales from your own 520 square feet private deck which overlooks the serene infinity swimming pool. In addition to whales, you will be sure to encounter an abundance of interesting wildlife, including our own community of placid howler monkeys, which never cease to fascinate and charm guests.

Enjoy evening cocktails on the deck while watching a picture perfect Pacific coast sunset followed by a dinner cooked on the house’s 4-burner Charbroil BBQ. You can even purchase fresh fish and lobsters pulled straight from the sea by local fisherman down at our local beach!

Casa Suerte comprises of cooling polished concrete floors, and beautifully detailed native hardwood features throughout. The house has and has been designed to allow natural airflow throughout constantly, making it a comfortable retreat after a day in the sun at one of the local surf beaches, many of which are in walking distance, or a short drive from the house.

Two generously proportioned bedrooms, each with ensuite, are supplemented with an additional office/library with a double sofa bed, comfortably accommodating a 5th guest. The interior is fitted with a mix of architect-designed furniture, mixed with Nicaraguan antique pieces. Washer and dryer are available to guests staying longer than one week at an additional cost

In contrast to it’s natural setting the house is appointed with essential modern services, including a dedicated Wi-Fi service to surf the net or a workcation. Plus fully fitted kitchen with extra bar fridge to ensure your drinks are kept cool. Your stay is made comfortable by the onsite services that provide 24hour security, cleaning services. A fluent english and spanish speaking meet and greet is included in the cost of rental to help you get acclimatized to the area.

Located 12km north of lovely San Juan Del Sur guests are strongly recommended to hire a four-wheel drive vehicle which will not only allow access to Casa Suerte but also to many of the unique beaches in the surrounding area. Once out of town all roads are dirt so it’s a great opportunity to enjoy country roads and explore the region

If you are seeking a relaxing and unique experience, in a beautifully appointed home and have a sense of adventure (while enjoying your creature comforts), we invite you Casa Suerte, Balcones de Majagual

Guestbook comments from the manager

What an amazing property. The house is in the middle of jungle, it's clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay so much and we are definetly going back to the same house again. By the way there is a TV but no cable service. However they have a media box in the house, so if you have movies in a usb key, just hook it up and it will work there :

Great Stay at Casa Suerte

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at Casa Suerte during our visit to Nicaragua. The Balcones de Majagual property is 20 minutes north of bustling San Juan del Sur - perfect for travelers who want peace and quiet most of the time but access to town and nightlife sometimes. The beach road on the property leads to one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever been to. It's quiet and private but a ten minute walk away from the surfing scene in front of Playa Maderas. We've traveled to Costa Rica several times so this trip to Nicaragua- with time in Granada, Ometepe Island and San Juan del Sur - was a really nice change of pace , offering new adventures for travelers looking to enjoy the beauty of Central America.

Unreal!

  • 5 of 5

Great location just far enough our of the madness of San Juan. Only a 5 min walk to the beach (longer uphill walk home) Surf beaches only about a 10-15 min drive. Accommodations are clean modern and up to date, made great use of the BBQ and Patio at night with Fish from the local markets. Make sure you have a 4x4 as the road up the the house is dirt and a little hairy at times. Otherwise sit back and enjoy the sunsets from the infinity pool!

Will be back in Nica as soon as I can!

Amazing Property with outstanding views and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Suerte for a few days while we visited San Juan del Sur. Needless to say, we could have stayed MUCH longer! The property itself is beautiful, with concrete floors, open space and beautiful woodwork. It literally opens up to the jungle with large screened doors so you really feel like you are in a treehouse. The bedrooms are large and comfortable and feel very luxurious. One of the best parts was grabbing groceries in town, usually a bunch of seafood, and cooking on the enormous deck that overlooks the treetops and the ocean. The grill was awesome! We also were right across from the pool where you can see a pocket view of the ocean and relax. You can drive easily down to the beach or in to town, or even walk (to the beach)! The beach is unbelievable and so stunning--we spent hours there exploring and swimming. I could keep going on and on about how much fun we had and what an amazing place this was!! I'd recommend Casa Suerte to anyone. The staff was also amazing, incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating.

A Very Unique Lodging Experience

  • 5 of 5

We used Casa Suerte as our base of operations during a two week family vacation that criss-crossed southwestern Nicaragua. Punctuating lazy days on the deck, in the pool or on the beach, we hiked and zip-lined Volcan Mombacho, Fished the waters south of San Juan del Sur and explored Isla Ometepe. The beautiful thing was that every night we were able to return to a house that was beautifully designed, finely appointed, and perfectly comfortable.

We visited during the "rainy" season, although there seemed to be somewhat of a drought at the time. Being situated on top of a hill, there was always a constant breeze if not fairly heavy winds. The house seemed to be built for just those type of conditions, effectively funneling air throughout the interior of the house, keeping it cool even on 85° to 90° days and giving the sense of being fully integrated into the surrounding wilderness.

Several families of howler monkeys moved over and around the house in search of young shoots of leaves. We saw sloths, skunks, squirrels, snakes, geckos, lizards, iguanas, vultures, wild parrots, and other wildlife. Even though the house was quite open (screened openings with no glass windows) and had several gaps/openings between sliding doors, roof joists, etc., the amount of insects and other critters that actually entered were minimal.

The property manager and Balcones de Majagual staff were extremely friendly, helpful and made our stay safer and more informed.

Casa Suerte is perfect for travelers, like us, who are looking for unique, high-end accommodations that allow privacy, the ability to prepare their own food, and the independence to come and go as needed.

I would absolutely recommend Casa Suerte for those planning a trip to Nicaragua.

Nica Lazy Days!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I spent 1 week in the beautiful Casa 7 in Balcones! The home was absolutely gorgeous! The location, home, pool, amenities exceeded our expectations over and over! Thank you to our wonderful hosts for making the process of booking and staying a very enjoyable one. The property manger Gabby was so helpful and friendly. We felt comfortable asking any questions we had and Gabby worked closely with us to book airport shuttles, a car rental and gave us good information about the home and our stay. I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful home! From sitting on the gorgeous patio each morning with our coffee to lounging around the pool each afternoon - we couldn't have been happier! 5 stars! Thank you from your Canadian friends!

lovely house with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Suerte and absolutely loved it. The views of the Pacific Ocean and the jungle are stunning. The house is lovely and very comfortable. The staff was very attentive and rapidly responded to our requests. The only reason I rated it a 4 instead of a 5... we had no hot water at the kitchen sink and the fridge stopped working. I would really recommend this place.

A four wheel drive vehicle high clearance vehicle is required for accessing not only Casa Suerte, but the majority of the beaches north and south of San Juan del Sur. We are located 12km from town on country dirt roads, and seeing as though the house is perched on a hill from the main road a 4 x 4 vehicle will make your stay not only easier, but more fun as you enjoy these beautiful country roads. Let us help you arrange a vehicle in town with one of our contacts at a discounted rate!

Make sure to ask us about our favourite activities- Spend a day at Rancho Chilamate, go zip lining at Da Flyin Frog, take a surf lessons with our favourite instructor!
