    " I left my heart at Casa Roja" - sound familiar? Weeks after you leave this oasis of tranquility, you will be humming that song. Peaceful, sweeping views of the Pacific and Costa Rica. (We interrupt this description for a live update. Today, 3 beautiful Toucans, rainbow colored, were seen eating my - your - papaya - and a nest is being built in the tree in front! How's that for breaking news!) No one around to disturb you except the wind, the jungle sounds, splashes from the pool - or the monkees howling in the distance. Surrounded by blossoming tropical Bali style plants as if you are cocooned in a forest - which you are. This is what Casa Roja offers; rest, comfort, quiet for the soul and minutes away, all the vacation fun San Juan offers to stir all your emotions - 35 5 s... more

    Additional Location Information
    Casa Roja is just south of town along the PAVED historic Coastal Route. Only 10 minutes from town, it is another world as you rise above the noise and heat of San Juan and end up 650 feet above sea level, with only cool breezes and precious silence to greet you. A gated entry leads you down a palm 400 foot driveway to the entrance of the house. There, the patio opens up to a majestic view of the Pacific and Costa Rica. The road to the house is less than a kilometer from Playa Hermosa, a stunning beach where Survivor was filmed. Great for surfing or swimming - Playa Yankee is only another 10 minutes south. The expression "so close yet so far away is very apt - 2.5 private acres with tranquility throughout, will make you never want to leave. Trees, monkeys, hawks, even guinea hens and 2 loving dogs are here to help you relax and forget about everything - except a cold beer or rum and coke.

This is a spectacular place hidden away in the jungle. My wife Barbara and I simply love being here. There are monkeys and birds galore. The view of the jungle, ocean and Costa Rica are amazing. Sitting on the porch listening to the wind and wildlife and admiring the view puts you completely at peace. The housekeepers and their two children are the best we've had by far during any of our stays in Nicaragua. They help in any way needed but speaking some Spanish is more than helpful.

There are 3 dogs living here that are adorable. One is a 3 month old puppy who we let sleep in our casita (not in our bed mind you). The dogs are absolutely wonderful and do not intrude much but will play with you all you want.

Another perk this place has is getting here. During our last two stays on the north side of San Juan del Sur the road is very rugged and difficult to get to the places we stayed at. The road to Casa Roja is very new and virtually all brick paved until...
