We did our best to mesh nature with modern comforts. It's traditional, Spanish Colonial style is comfortable and relaxed and easy to settle into so you can choose whether to detox from your hectic life or use as a home base as you fill your day with activities. You will be greeted by our property manager and two caretakers (who live on-site) in addition to their furry companion, Jack. The first floor has incredibly high ceilings, is open concept and boasts a modern kitchen with full size, stainless steel appliances along with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Seating for the entire gang is guaranteed with a formal table that seats 10 and bar seating for 8. Counters are both polished concrete and reclaimed barn wood which add natural charm to the house. From the multiple sofas you can watch a large screen TV or enjoy the colorful inside garden which contains a unique wall fountain which sports an antique seahorse spout. Also available is a smart TV; cable, a DVD and movie selection; ; an Ipod connection cord so you can connect to our multi floor sound system; and of course Internet. A half bath that has both inside and outside accessibility is adjacent to the living room. The outside patio hosts a hand made table and locally crafted tiles. There are lounges to sip drinks by the pool or snooze in the two hammocks. Palm trees and flowering vegetation surround the pool and perimeter of the house. You and a partner can shower side by side al fresco in the sunken shower area. There are multiple hose locations to rise off your surf boards which can be stored on board racks in the garage. The house is minutes by car to be bay for paddle boarding or there are numerous surf breaks of varying difficulty which can be reached by catching an inexpensive shuttle from town. To arrive at the bedrooms, you pass a sweet sitting area midway where a fold out sofa and lamp and inlaid, wooden compass rose greets you. The first bedroom you pass is deemed 'the bunk room' because there are 3 sets of bunk beds that sleep 6. The height between bunks is substantial enough for an adult to not feel like they're away at summer camp. The bunk room has a private bath with two sinks and also a private balcony with ocean and hillside views.The two additional bedrooms have queen sized beds, private baths, and access to the second story patio. Check out the pics because this is a really nice, private area with sofas to read, a table to do bookwork, or host a gathering from the concrete counter/sink bar. There are also outside speakers for your party music!Overall the house has super high ceilings and fans to help keep it cool. The bedrooms have air conditioning and hot water on demand. There is decorative iron work through the house along with countless seahorse accents. A spacious parking area is directly across from the entrance door. Almost forgot to mention the pool, which has a nice shallow end for lounging with a drink or a safe place for little ones to splash. If you must work off some calories, you can tread in the deep end. If this is your first trip to Nica, please note that it is ultra casual so, ladies, leave those high heels and super fancy clothes at home. Instead bring your sunscreen, comfy shoes, hats and sundresses to enjoy the warm weather and activities. There are so many things to do in the area. So far, we've gone horseback riding on the beach, zip lining, taken in the view from the Jesus statute on the hill, gone deep sea fishing, snorkeling, surfing (of course), watched baby turtles be released to the ocean, taken day trips to the colonial city of Granada and have sat and relaxed at the pool. Can't wait to go on a sunset cocktail cruise, paddle board in the bay, visit the volcanos, and the list goes on. I hope you will choose to allow us to share our home away from home. Our caretaker Marina will cook a fabulous breakfast, if you desire. Her husband, Eddy, can help you start the charcoal grill and rearrange the patio chairs to your favorite location. Both will help make you feel comfortable and relaxed. You will find information how to reach me to ask questions. And there you'll see lots more pics of the house starting from breaking ground to present. You'll also see some of the fun things we've done...with lots more to come :) . We also have a youtube video which shows June 2014 family adventure. Our video is at the one with the Donavon Frankenreiter Band playing background music. Pay special attention to the last slide as it provides a helpful suggestion to possibly save money if you contact me via another method. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. Sincerely, Rose Downs. THE PRICE CHART FOLLOWS: $205 per night for 2 people; then the price increases $25/night per person. Please contact me to confirm pricing. Also, inquire if you would like breakfast cooked, served and your dishes washed. More

About the neighbourhood
The Sea House is located in Paradise Bay which is 5 minutes by car from downtown San Juan del Sur. Walking would take about 15, if you don't stop to enjoy the views. We have found that the location of our house is perfectly placed to be close to the action of town but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. We like to sleep without the A/C so as not to miss all of the birds chirping every morning in addition to the most unusual barks from the howler monkeys who live down the hill. During some months, it is quite spectacular to see whales breeching in the bay!
How to get there
you'll land in Managua Airport, go thru customs where you pay $10 to enter the country, pick up your luggage and catch your ride to SJDS. the ride is about 2 hours, but on the way you'll see several volcanoes situated in lakes. Nicaragua is called the land of lands and volcanoes, because there are lakes in volcanoes and volcanoes in lakes. you can schedule to have Marina prepare a meal for you upon arrival. then you can just relax and watch the sun set.
