The SpaceCasa Arbol now available for a summer special rate of $145US a night! The 2-story home overlooks the Pacific Ocean and one of Central America's largest private wildlife corridors, making incredible wildlife sightings an almost daily occurrence. A five-minute drive down our private road will take you to three of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Playa Maderas, Playa Playones and Playa Majagual. Designed by acclaimed architect Matthew Falkiner and the people behind renowned eco-resort, Morgan’s Rock, this house is proud to be part of a community spearheading eco-friendly vacations without sacrificing luxury. Casa Arbol was built to be the perfect balance of tropical open-air living and modern comfort. High ceilings provide extraordinary views through our state-of-the-art screen system. This unique amenity brings you the fresh air, the crashing of waves, and the calls of exotic birds -- all while making sure nothing but the fresh air actually comes inside. The home overlooks a low valley and its position is perfect for some extraordinary bird and monkey watching from inside the house or on our two decks. The house is supported by massive eucalyptus trunks and curved wood ceilings built from sustainable timber. Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and grounds. The living room features a new large flat screen TV, a Sony audio system, DVD library, art collection, and leather and wood furniture and furnishings by the architect who designed the home. The master and guest bedrooms both have forest and ocean views, custom lighting, and their own bathrooms with beautiful stonework throughout. In keeping with the eco-conscious nature of the house, piping hot water is provided by our solar hot water heater. Our recently upgraded battery-backup system provides silent power for the house even during Nicaragua's brief power outages, so you will not hear noisy generators running and your trip will not be interrupted. We have a fully equipped kitchen, a new refrigerator, a microwave, gas oven/stove, and purified water available for your convenience. Travel to nearby San Juan del Sur for local fruits and vegetables, some of the freshest fish you’ll ever eat, and meat and poultry that are the very definition of free-range. A 15-minute walk or a 4-minute drive takes you through forest canopies right to Playa Majagual and private, secluded luxury. From the beach, walk north to explore the tide-pools or south to one of the world’s best surf-breaks. But you may decide to just stay put and sunbathe, have a picnic in the private palapa, body surf in the perfect waves, stare in wonder at the sunset, or all of the above. Bird and wildlife watching from the house or on the many hiking and nature trails, is incomparable. Howler monkeys live in the trees around the house in large numbers – and you will hear them each day around sundown as they prepare for the night. November thru April is Ocelot and Margay cat season – and we have seen them on many occasions. Kinkajou will likely visit at night next to the porch in the canopy, where the fruits they loves grow and ripen in the green months, May through November. Sloth, Coatimudi and a multitude of other animals will all visit at various times. Enjoy the custom stonework, stone showers and countertops, outdoor shower and the hammock on the pool deck An additional sunset deck in the very tops of the trees above the house provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set in the evenings over the Pacific below. The Master bedroom is an incredible space, all stone, wood, custom lighting and furniture. The vista of the ocean below or the night sky surrounding you -- after lights out it is difficult to tell whether you are indoors or outdoors. Magical. A gorgeous shared plunge pool set on the edge of the hill allows for incredible view of the Pacific- particularly at sunset!

Above all, Casa Selva is our home, and we are delighted to share it with you in our absence.

The NeighborhoodOne of the best parts of staying at Casa Selva is the quiet that allows you to enjoy the sounds of the jungle. On days when the breezes are gentle you can hear the ocean crashing. Every day you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee with the parakeets singing and the Mono Congo monkey's hanging in the trees around the house. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets singing outside the house. Unlike many of the homes in and around San Juan Del Sur, Casa Selva is unique in its setting. Perched on a ridge, the home is located in a private boutique community, containing 11 homes on roughly 100 acres stretching from the jungle to the ocean. There is enough space between homes to enjoy complete privacy without feeling alone or isolated. The lack of light pollution allows you to swim in the pool on clear nights by moonlight, something not to be missed. We provide 24 hour on site security, cleaning service and management without being intrusive. We are also an ecologic conscious community. What does this mean? We do not believe in spraying heavy pesticides like local hotels do to control bugs, what this does mean is you may encounter a few critters in and around the house, but we are not poisoning the food chain from the bottom up. All of our actions have far reaching consequences, and we want monkeys and parrots to visit the home. We heat our water with solar heat (and there is no lack of that!) and all our furniture and wood in the home is reclaimed fallen hardwoods, ethically sourced in north east Nicaragua. Getting AroundNo public transport We like to point out that our roads are dirt roads- and we mean backroad steep grade with more than a few bump dirt roads. All part of the fun but we want you to be prepared. 4 x 4 is required and not optional and we will escort you out for your first drive around (which we can assist with booking at discounted rates) Other Things to NoteSmall events may be possible with prior permission and discussion

Casa Arbol was built to be the perfect balance of tropical open-air living and modern comfort. High ceilings provide extraordinary views through our state-of-the-art screen system. This unique amenity brings you the fresh air, the crashing of waves, and the calls of exotic birds The home overlooks a low valley and its position is perfect for some extraordinary bird and monkey watching from inside the house on our deck. The house is supported by massive eucalyptus trunks and curved wood ceilings built from sustainable timber. Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and grounds. The living room features a new large flat screen TV, a Sony audio system, DVD library, art collection, and leather and wood furniture and furnishings by the architect who designed the home.

In keeping with the eco-conscious nature of the house, piping hot water is provided by our solar hot water heater. Our battery-backup system provides silent power for the house even during Nicaragua's brief power outages, so you will not hear noisy generators running. We have a fully equipped kitchen, a new refrigerator, a microwave, gas oven/stove, and purified water available for your convenience. Travel to nearby San Juan del Sur for local fruits and vegetables, some of the freshest fish you’ll ever eat, and meat and poultry that are the very definition of free-range. A 15-minute walk or a 4-minute drive takes you through forest canopies right to Playa Majagual and private, secluded luxury. From the beach, walk north to explore the tide-pools or south to one of the world’s best surf-breaks. But you may decide to just stay put and sunbathe, have a picnic in the private palapa, body surf in the perfect waves, stare in wonder at the sunset, or all of the above. Bird and wildlife watching from the house or on the many hiking and nature trails, is incomparable. Howler monkeys live in the trees around the house in large numbers – and you will hear them each day around sundown as they prepare for the night. November thru April is Ocelot and Margay cat season – and we have seen them on many occasions. Kinkajou will likely visit at night next to the porch in the canopy, where the fruits they loves grow and ripen in the green months, May through November. Sloth, Coatimudi and a multitude of other animals will all visit at various times. Enjoy the custom stonework, stone showers and countertops, outdoor shower and the hammock on the pool deck An additional sunset deck in the very tops of the trees above the house provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set in the evenings over the Pacific below. The Master bedroom is an incredible space, all stone, wood, custom lighting and furniture. The vista of the ocean below or the night sky surrounding you -- after lights out it is difficult to tell whether you are indoors or outdoors. Magical. A gorgeous shared plunge pool set on the edge of the hill allows for incredible view of the Pacific- particularly at sunset! Concierge services are included in the cost and they can arrange for zip-lines and canopy tours, surfing lessons, fishing expeditions, Spanish lessons, and professional massages on site.

All services provided according to your preference, your privacy will be respected here. If you don't wish to have your privacy interrupted, it won't be. If you are looking for a night on the town, San Juan del Sur, and its fantastic line of beachfront restaurants and bars, is just 8 kilometers away. There is even a small casino if you want to play cards or slots. And if you want to know our favorite places to eat and drink, just ask. We can also give hints about discounts in the area.

On days when the breezes are gentle you can hear the ocean crashing. Every day you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee with the parakeets singing and the Mono Congo monkey's hanging in the trees around the house. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets singing outside the house. Unlike many of the homes in and around San Juan Del Sur, Casa Luna is unique in its setting. Perched on a ridge, the home is located in a private boutique community, containing 11 homes on roughly 100 acres stretching from the jungle to the ocean. There is enough space between homes to enjoy complete privacy without feeling alone or isolated. The lack of light pollution allows you to swim in the pool on clear nights by moonlight, something not to be missed. We provide 24 hour on site security, cleaning service and management without being intrusive. We are also an ecologic conscious community. What does this mean? We do not believe in spraying heavy pesticides like local hotels do to control bugs, what this does mean is you may encounter a few critters in and around the house, but we are not poisoning the food chain from the bottom up. All of our actions have far reaching consequences, and we want monkeys and parrots to visit the home. We heat our water with solar heat (and there is no lack of that!) and all our furniture and wood in the home is reclaimed fallen hardwoods, ethically sourced in north east Nicaragua.

The two bedrooms each have a queen bed with fresh linens. Both have plenty of storage space and en suite bathrooms. There is a deck to one side of the house which is great for eating dinner or relaxing after a day at the beach. The master bedroom has a wrap-around veranda with seating and two hammocks. Guest AccessSeahorse House is rented to only one set of guests at a time who have exclusive use of the private residence. The rental space includes the entire second floor and all decks. Please respect the privacy of the 24 hour security guard/ gardener who resides on the first floor. Guests may use the outdoor shower at the home's entrance and eat fresh papaya fruit growing in the yard. Interaction with GuestsProperty manager will greet guests with keys upon arrival and be available during stay. A cleaning service visits midweek with fresh linen, additional drinking water and removes garbage. The friendly and helpful security guard/ gardener has worked at Seahorse House for years. He is a local and speaks only spanish. He is very patient with guests asking questions using the house dictionary or an online translator. The NeighborhoodGuests can simply relax or enjoy the many activities Playa Maderas has to offer. Only a short walk down the hill will lead you to some of the best surf break in the area and restaurants directly on the sand. Hotel Hulakai (just down the hill) is a great resource for guests as they offer a great happy hour and excellent food. Getting AroundThe house is on a hill. At first it seems a little intimidating, but many guests soon prefer walking to get some exercise. Although the owner's 67 year old mother walks the hill top to bottom, sometimes at night or after a long beach day she prefers to use a vehicle. In Nicaragua 4X4's are generally ideal and can be rented in San Juan Del Sur from the Alamo by El Timon or the National/Dollar rent-a-car at Pelican Eyes. Both Playa Maderas and Casa Maderas hotel (15 min walk from Seahorse House) offer shuttle service to/from San Juan Del Sur for $5 round trip and run 4 or 5 trips a day. Other Things to NoteThe eco-friendly house runs off solar power. Typically we find the solar system provides plenty of electric for daily needs including lights, fans, stereo, refrigerator and device charging. The onsite gardener/security guard will be happy to run our generator for guests requiring above average electric usage.

                The SpaceCome and stay in the smallest eco resort in the world, perched on a 3.5 acre hillside with stunning views of the Pacific. Nestled into your own private jungle, you're immersed in a tranquil oasis, where, lying in a hammock from your balcony, you're as likely to see hummingbirds, butterflies and iguanas as you are to hear monkeys, crickets and the gentle breeze. Your private casita (cabin) comes fully equipped with everything you need for a self catered stay in paradise. It offers spacious open plan living with a private balcony (equipped with four seater table and chairs, hammock chair and hammock) and an open invitation to enjoy sunset over the Pacific. Las Mananitas is 100% off the grid, so it's a perfect place to relax and re-connect to nature and yourself. All water comes from a 450ft deep well, and all energy is solar (with a generator for backup, so you're minimising your carbon footprint, too). The midday heat presents a perfect opportunity for a dip in the pool, a stones throw from your casita. Relax on the deck chairs or in the hammock; it's up to you. Your casita has it's own outdoor bbq for cooking under the stars. With one queen size bed and a couch that extends into another double bed, you have enough space for four adults, that is also perfect for a family. Your shower room and toilet are just off the main living area. The kitchen has basic cooking equipment and utensils (including an espresso stove top coffee maker), as well as a medium fridge and gas stove & full oven. Anything else you might need? You just need to ask ;) Buy groceries from here, from town, or from the local fruit & veg truck that drives by 3 x a week. Fresh eggs are sold just down the road. It's all fresh, fresh, fresh! We are a five min drive, 12 min bike ride and 30 min walk to the beach at Playas Majagual & Maderas, where you can wile away hours either surfing, sun bathing, or exploring the other beaches. Las Mananitas is perfect if you have a car; if not, we can arrange pick up for you in Managua, Granada, or San Juan del Sur. While here, you can get around by bike or walking, or a ride from me ;) Lonely Planet has a great overview of the area. Looking forward to sharing this little slice of heaven with you.
