This house consists of two pods, each surrounded by its own
private porch in an L shape around the pool. In the main pod there
is a large open living room with five bed/couches, kitchen,
dining/ping pong room and a bedroom with full bath all overlooking
the infinity pool. The other pod contains two bedroom suites with
two beds and a full bath in each bedroom and a master suite
upstairs. Each is surrounded by its own porch with hammock. All the
furnishings are custom made on site from beautiful hardwoods.
This totally private and exclusive luxury estate is surrounded by
hundreds of acres of indigenous forest, fruit orchards, and organic
gardens. It is part of a sustainable, self-sufficient intentional
community we are building in partnership with the local community to
provide a world that our grandchildren can enjoy together. Emphasis
is on organic sustainable agriculture and animal husbandry,
alternative non polluting energy solutions and long range
stewardship of the land to provide food, building materials and
clean self produced energy for future generations. All proceeds are
used to further these goals.
Finca Las Nubes (farm of the clouds) is located two miles from the
pacific ocean some 1,200 to 1,500 ft. high on a plateau offering a
cooler climate than down below. Surrounded by a steep escarpment on
two sides and a mountain on the other, it offers a spectacular view
panorama overlooking the entire coast over the edge of the infinity
pool from Costa Rica to the San Juan bay to the west, and volcanoes
Conception and Maderas emerging from Lake Nicaragua to the east.
Incredible wildlife is all around you. Howler monkeys call from the
trees right above the house. There are protected valleys for farming
and large open pastures for grazing animals surrounded by natural
forest, creeks and waterfalls. This protected environment is home
to howler whiteface and spider monkeys, sloth, deer, rabbit, fox,
skunk, possum, wild turkey, iguana and birds of all kinds including
intensely colorful bands of wild parrots
Words simply cannot describe the Smith Family's wonderful week at Finca Las Nubes and our hacienda overlooking San Juan del Sur and the Pacific Ocean. From the moment that Javier greeted us at the airport in Managua until Ada Luz greeted us at our home we were put at ease. Each and everyday we were cared for like royalty and given not a care in the world. Each member of the staff we came in contact with were caring, outgoing, friendly, and truly became part of family. Juan Pablo took care of our every desire at our home. His work ethics at 22 years old were beyond belief. Marcelino took our son to the best surf spots and served as our guide across Lake Nicaragua to the volcanoes. Our breakfast, lunch, and dinners were carefully thought out and so well prepared. Thank you Ada Luz, Juan Pablo, and Lidia. Our home away from home surpassed all expectations. Unbelievably well-constructed, open air atmospheres and truly no need for air conditioning with the constant breezes. No telephones and a real escape from reality and the stressors of life. We leave renewed and thankful for the opportunity you extended us. We look forward to returning in the near future if you will have us. And most importantly, we leave with hearts full of love for our extended family in Nicaragua. Muchas gracias for all your love.

P.S. Ada Luz is a magnificent hostess and consierge. No woman could be more sweet.
The sunsets are exquisite at this location and it is just a very
short drive to any of the many fantastic beaches nearby. Swimming,
snorkeling and surfing are just a few of the many things to in San
Juan Del Sur. Send the kids surfing or to the canopy tour while you
take in the shopping and sights of Granada, the oldest colonial city
in the Americas (circa 1500). You can drive a short distance to Lake
Nicaragua, drive onto the car ferry and tour Isla Ometepe with its
two volcanoes in the middle of the lake. The nearby canopy tour in
San Juan "The Flying Frog" is one of the best we've ever tried and
boasts three lines over 400 meters long. You can see many animals
such as sloths and howler monkeys not to mention the adrenaline rush
of flying over a 150 foot gorge! Surfing is a favorite activity as
there are many beaches that sport some of the best surfing in the
world. Take in some of the best fishing anywhere. Or just stay on
the farm and walk or ride horseback through the forest enjoying the
peaceful tranquility of nature. Stop at our wood shop and have our
carpenters make you a chair, wooden toy or sculpture. Tour our
organic gardens and orchards. If rest and relaxation is where you're
at then you can kick back at the pool with a book in one hand and a
margarita in the other. San Juan offers both sleepy seaside village
atmosphere and lively nightlife, something for everyone.
