Why Etel chose San Juan del Sur

In my opinion, after visiting many properties for sale along the Pacific coast of Nicaragua , this home has absolutely one of the best views in the country.

What makes this house unique

Unparalleled views of SJDS bay and Pacific Ocean .

Simply Amazing!!! :-)

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Cara del Indio along with 4 friends in June this year.

We truly had the vacation of a lifetime!!

The home is located on a point (all by itself) with incredible views overlooking the bay & the ocean.

We absolutely loved it!.

The property is beautiful, extremely clean and spacious.

We used Iskra travel for airport pick up, drop off and travel to Granada.

Victoria, Nora and Marlon (housekeepers) are extremely helpful.

They speak little English, but we managed to communicate via written notes and by contacting the owners. They were readily available throughout the booking process and while we occupied their home.

It was hot and humid during our stay and we are glad we decided to request the extra AC's option. (general areas , living room & kitchen). The home is offered with AC usage included on the rental for all bedrooms only.

Evenings & nights were pleasant (at times windy & fresh), but day temps got hotter than expected.

We jumped in the pool, sat on the terraces by the ocean...drinks on hand... & we were in heaven.

This is truly a place to relax in luxury and comfort.

We will be back!!!

Thanks everybody for making our stay unforgettable.

Wonderful home overlooking all of San Juan del Sur

  • 5 of 5

My husband, friends and I had a wonderful time in SJDS, largely due to this gorgeous home and all the available amenities. Etel made it very easy for us to arrange our travel plans. She was always responsive to our needs and provided us with great information about staying in SJDS.

Every night, we were able to enjoy a gorgeous sunset and watch downtown SJDS come to life. And some evenings, we enjoyed the occasional thunderstorm, which battled the sound of the crashing waves - both lulling you to sleep. We elected to purchase the air-conditioning and food service options and boy, were we glad. Although we are accustomed to tropical weather, it got muggy and hot at times, even if the house is located on top of a cliff. And the food...SO GOOD. We had fresh guacamole, fried plantains, ceviche, paella and anything we asked for. We always had clean towels, were never hungry and had our privacy. And now, Nicaragua and SJDS are one of our favorite places in the world. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home, Etel!

Amazing home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 8 total guest, 4 adults and 4 children ages 8-13. All I can say is what a wonderful experience from the moment of booking, throughout the entire stay and even upon our departure. Etel was wonderful, she fully provided us with car rental information, arranged transportation to and from Managua, provided us with a trustworthy company to tour and explore. Etel was in contact with Nora, Victoria and Marlon throughout our stay to make sure everything was to out liking and satisfaction. And even prior to us leaving to come back home, Etel and her brother came to our rescue in Managua. Nora, Victoria and Marlon were fabulous, such wonderful, caring, personable and just top notch people. They made themselves available for us when needed. Both Nora and Victoria prepared all our meals with what ever we requested and all the meals were delicious. The house is just breathtaking, sitting on the cliff overlooking the ocean with gorgeous views, lots of decks, pool, and outdoor space, great location! We will definitely return!

BEST vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 family and friends (including 4 small children) who had the unbelievable pleasure of spending 7 days last week at Casa Cara del Indio and I must tell you that it far exceeded all of our expectations! The pictures on VRBO of the home and the views do not do the grandeur and magnificence of both the home and the views justice. Etel, the owner of the home, is the most helpful and accommodating of any rental property owner from whom I've rented a vacation home. She provides you with so much helpful information and contacts for transportation, grocery shopping, massages, cooks, etc. and even encourages you to call her if you need any further assistance while on vacation. The towels are embroidered with the name of the Casa, there are beach towels for the pool and for the beach that are clean and readily available for you every morning. Nora, the housekeeper is so warm and loving and paid such special attention to the children. Every morning, we awoke to the smells of coffee brewing and breakfast being cooked by Victoria - from homemade pancakes with Banana fosters homemade syrup, to fresh made juices and freshly cut fruit. All of us left with a heavy heart (and a few extra pounds) because it was literally the best vacation we've ever experienced. None us of wanted to leave but alas, we waived goodbye to Etel's wonderful staff, taking with us such treasured memories and the dream that we will return again soon (and we will)! Etel, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to share a little piece of your Heaven with you and thank you so much for the wonderful experience and your warm and welcoming nature. The memory of this vacation, your beautiful home, your adorable staff and those killer views will be a lasting one! Until next time...

Best Vacation Home We've Rented.

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of about 10 friends, have rented homes throughout Central America and the Caribbean, and this was the nicest house we've rented.

Every room is exceptional. There is a multitude of decks, views everywhere. The bedrooms were spacious, cool and comfortable. The pool area is well planned and comfortable. We did a little cooking for breakfast only, and cocktails, and the kitchen lacks nothing. The ice machine was a bonus.

The staff was top notch. Nora and Victoria were courteous and unobtrusive, yet always available and surprising with there attention to detail. Marlon, the grounds and house man went about his work and it seemed like he wasn't even there, yet consistently, like the girls, he did little things without being asked that were way above and beyond the normal. (I came out morning and he had rinsed and propped my stand up paddle board to dry. Outstanding.)

The views, to town, Pacific, Costa Rica, all around are fantastic, oh, and sunset. A short hike to the shore line, a few minutes, and then to town, about 30 minutes to town center. We walked in many mornings to bring back pastries and donuts. ( It was vacation and there are both an excellent bakery and fresh donut shop.)

All in all, this is a wonderful vacation house. We had four couples and two singles and everything worked out fine.

And the internet really worked if you needed it.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and the owner, Etel, was available, timely and very knowledgeable to all our pre trip questions, and spot on. Thanks Etel

Magnificent Home with Awesome Views

  • 5 of 5

We took 7 other people ( 9 of us total) to San Juan del Sur for their first visit. Nobody could believe the majestic views from every room in the house. The town at night, the Pacific, the boats, views of Costa Rica and the coastline were like nothing I have ever experienced. Victoria and Nora cooked awesome meals, kept us in clean towels and clothes, and were available for any of our needs. We hired Kenny 2 nights to cook dinner and he was fabulous. Etel and Bob were very responsive on any questions or concerns.......they coordinated our airport transfers and gave us info for rental cars, tours and any other information we needed to make our trip one of a kind. This was the nicest vacation I ever experienced.
