I picked this spot after traveling Central America from Panama to Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras. Nothing I saw came close to this for View and easy access to a sandy bottom beach. The friendliest easiest going people I met in Central America. Un like Costa Rica no one is pushing you to buy anything. Life goes on at a slow pace with no pressure or grind. Easy access in and out of Managua’s new International airport. It has the history of Granada and the Volcanos and the beach all within a 1:45 minute drive. The roads here are so much better than other Central American countries I have travelled. This will be my final retirement home and I built it to handle up to 8 with privacy for all as well as a great room to gather in.
Every day the view is different it’s like have a new painting done for you every day. You will be staying in my home not an income rental property.
I currently live near Carmel CA and Pebble beach’s 17 mile drive. This Nicaragua view has the drama of Big Sur CA but with beach access to warm water bays with sandy bottoms. It’s a must see.
With multiple uncrowned surf spots, great fishing along with the History and tours this is “the place” for your next vacation. You too may decide to retire here?
Vista Grande is everything you see in the pictures, as well as the descriptions. It is also a LOT more. One gets the idea, just from the pictures, how amazing the views will be. Then you realize that you've been staring at the same view for hours, and can't look away - and keep repeating "Really?" to your wife and friends. Yes, it's that cool. If you're looking for a week full of a view that you just can't buy... this is your place.
Oh yeah, and there's a fantastic house, and wonderful staff that you might notice after a few days too. Seriously, the house is top notch. As good as any upper end property in the states. Fully equipped - you'll want for very little, if anything. The build quality is excellent. The beds in the 2 master suites are super comfy, the other 2 rooms have pretty firm mattresses, but are still fine. We really enjoyed how the main master bedroom opened onto the pool deck, and of course the view. We spent plenty of time sitting outside after others had gone to bed, just watching the moon light up the ocean.
Eating meals at the large table, again looking at the view, was spectacular as well. This was probably aided by the fact that we didn't cook hardly any of the meals. Jaime and Jorge took care of anything at ALL that we needed the whole week. Want fish for dinner? Jorge will run to town and set you up - and Jaime will prepare it. You'll also come back to the house to find that clothes that you had left out, have been washed, dried, and folded. They were both very helpful, though they speak NO English. This wasn't a problem for us, as 2-3 of us speak enough to get ourselves in trouble. We loved Negro and Oso too! They handle security, and bark at any unscrupulous looking howler monkeys...
The house is a ways from town. You'll need a car, as cabs to/from town will run you $30-$40 US. The owners are very helpful in getting transportation sorted out though, so just ask. You'll be able to walk to both Playa Remanso and Playa Hermosa though, and there are tasty fish/chicken tacos, and plenty of cold beer.
We had a GREAT time at Vista Grande, and in Nicaragua. Beautiful country, and very friendly people.
The week spent at Vista Grande on Punta Diamante met and exceeded all of our expectations. Our family of 7 (we were joined by our adult children in graduate school plus a sibling and her husband) spent the week of Christmas 2013 at Vista Grande and had a spectacular time. The three particularly notable highlights of the home were the home itself with the views, the help within the home and the travel arrangements, and the nearby beaches.
As many of the other reviewers have commented, the views are stunning. The front porch of the home overlooking the ocean, the coastline, and the beaches never ceased to be a wonder during the week. I often paused during the day to gaze off in all the directions to savor the spectacle unfolding before our eyes each day. We tried to make it home each day in time to enjoy the sunsets.
The owners and the caretakers made the week exceptional. The owners arranged for our rental of a 7 passenger 4-wheel drive vehicle. They were concerned that we would not get the right car for our family from the car rental firms so made two different reservations with different companies. It turned out to be fortuitous because the first rental car company only had a 4-wheel drive pick-up truck which would not have worked for us. The second rental car company did indeed have our 7 passenger 4 wheel drive vehicle. In addition, they lined up our transportation from San Juan del Sur back to the Managua airport at two different times for the 7 of us as well. Jorge and Jame, the caretakers, worked tirelessly to keep the home tidy, the laundry done, helped with the marketing, provided some driving, and cooked dinner for us on occasion.
The nearby beaches were another highlight. We used both Playa El Remanzo below the house and Playa Hermosa that was about a 20-30 minute walk to the south of the house. El Remanzo was uncrowded, was a great diversion for a quick walk down to the beach, and had lovely fish tacos and drinks right on the beach. Our family spent much more of our time on Playa Hermosa. It was sparsely populated, has great sand, is about 3-5 times as long as Playa El Remanzo, has a nice shallow slowly sloping beach with spectacular waves for body surfing and board surfing, and also has the amenities for beach food and drinks. Our family loved the walks to Playa Hermosa and spent most of our days there at the beach. It was a great week and we are now thinking about an opportunity to return in the near future.
The home is beautiful and is set up perfectly to relax. The view from the terrace and pool will take your breath away! We rented the home for a family trip with our adult children and 3 year old grandson.
The home itself is designed very well for a family of 7-8 like ours. I loved that the master bedroom was in a separate part of the house and even the other en suite bedroom is far enough from the other two that you feel total privacy. There is air conditioning that we only used at night because of the nice breeze during the day. The pool and terrace are simply perfect and we spent most of our
time out there enjoying the view, which is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen! You are surrounded by water and won't want to miss a sunset...we didn't miss one.
Jorge (caretaker) and his wife keep the house and around it spotless and Jorge's wife cooked us wonderful meals for breakfast lunch and dinner when needed. They were priceless in arranging drivers for our outings with our group of 7.
Romanso beach is very nice and is a nice walk down a steep path from the house. It isn't too challenging for adults but difficult with a 3 year old or supplies. We walked down many times, but chose to use a car when bringing down boards and cooler. The waves are perfect for intermediate surfers like us and we also watched some surfers that had a little bit more expertise. The beach was never busy and feels as if it is private to the surrounding homes. The food at the beach is delicious, in the small outdoor stand. Great fish tacos!
You will need a 4x4 vehicle to reach the home over the steep dirt road but it is only about 15 minutes to San Juan Del Sur city center.
We really enjoyed our time at this peaceful rental and would definitely stay there again. I can't imagine a better spot in San Juan Del Sur.
I organized a group of 8 friends from NYC to spend the week after Christmas at Punta Diamante villa. We were nervous having never visited San Juan Del Sur and didn't know what to expect. The owners were super helpful answering our questions and preparing our visit. When we arrived, our whole group was BLOWN AWAY. This villa is SPECTACULAR. the view was the main attraction, every sunset we spent outside on the pool, taking the same picture over and over. The surfing was literally 5 minutes away and the staff at the house were lovely. All around, one of the best vacations I have ever had. Your only problem is that you won't want to leave the house.
The listing is accurate although it is tough for the owner to accurately describe how stunning the views are. The photo's don't even capture the breath of the 270 degree views. Prior to staying here I thought the views from the Lodge at Pebble Beach or the Montage (Laguna Beach) were the best in the world. This property has better views than both. The rooms are nice and everything is new. The onsite staff provided great service. I walked out to the deck to see the morning view and when I came back to my room about 15 minutes later my bed was made and my room was organized. They also prepared home made tortillas and cooked the food to order. Although there are activities in the area I only went to the town to have breakfast a couple of times. Everything I needed was at the property. One of the attendants always carried a surf board down to the beach for me. The bays were beautiful and made for great surfing. The water was so warm and clean that I went every morning. Then we'd go hiking in the afternoon. I will definitely return and highly recommend it.
Great trip. A very unique and different experience. The house was new in fact the landscaping was being finished up while we were there. The view is unreal it just keeps going. Every time we stepped outside or walked around the property we keep saying "this view is unbelievable". Every room has a different view. The house looks on to two separate bays as well as out to open sea. You can hear the waves thumping on both sides of the house. It's just as described in the house description "it feels like your on a cruise ship heading out to sea". The house is on the tip of a peninsula "Diamond Point". Were two couples who have made many trips together from Hawaii, Costa Rica to New Zeland. We've been to Nica 3 other times but this was the best trip ever.We just keep saying this view tops them all. We're in our fifty's and love to surf and fish. We walked down everyday and surfed right below the house. The main thing about this house as opposed to other places we've stayed in San Juan Del Sur is that you feel your'e a millions miles away from everything. It's so private and tranquil yet it's only 4 miles from town. The staff was great a younger couple who have been well trained. they gave us great services . You never seemed to see them yet when you want something they were there for you. The master bedrooms were great both with comfortable King beds nice sheets. it was obvious a lot of money was put into this property. It seemed as though it was someones house not a "rental". If your going to San Juan Del Sur I would Highly recommend this house the staff and privacy are great but the views are just unmatched. I'm a really active guy who always wants to be doing something on vacation, but for the first time, I was content to just relax at the pool and enjoy the views, it was always changing!.
