Possibly the best way to describe its master engineering and architecture, Orquidea del Sur best fits “The Party 1968” movie starred by Peter Sellers. But of course you would be missing the uninvited baby elephant visiting along with the soap and scrub to fully re act the script and oh…….the noted late character of course, only to be supplemented by the unequivocal beautiful views to the ocean and endless stars. Yes, this is how one can best describe the elegance boasted by Orquidea del Sur planted over two leveled terraces and a columned mezzanine for the main building. No luminous contamination to best enjoy the depths and wonders of the universe, top quality peers sharing the joy of not being among the masses of tourists, everlasting smiles displayed by highly motivated collaborators, proper display of silverware on tables, potent air conditioning to freeze your sweat upon entering your room, bathrooms so large an urban architect could fit a studio apartment upon each of them, large door windows, high room ceilings and the list goes on and on. You want to take a stroll to the beach on your own very early morn??, you will get not one, but two hounds ready to keep you company all the way down and back up to the complex sustaining a safe distance from you as they never like to get too comfortable with guests. Those best friends to mankind will never repeat a word you may have said from your “lonely” sunrise journey.
This is a family run operation and if you pay close attention there will always be one member of the family walking “oote and aboot” (Canadian for Out and About) to ensure all is under control. And of course, the cushioned tropical BBQ trench to provisionally "Stammtisch" with your dearest friends while enjoying a selected bottle of chilled wine at night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hola and welcome to Orquidea del Sur, your private villa south of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Overlooking the renowned surf break at Playa Yankee, Orquidea del Sur commands a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean that is every bit as breathtaking as you would hope. We promise. With over 8000 square feet of living space, spectacular gardens, and two award winning swimming pools, the villa has everything you expect from a luxury vacation rental. The manicured gardens are filled with flowers, visited by all sorts of tropical birds including parakeets and toucans, and even monkeys stop by. Prepare your meals under cathedral ceilings in the fully appointed gourmet kitchen and enjoy them in one of several dining areas throughout the property. One of our favourite spots is on the patio overlooking the pool at sunset. After the sun goes down, you can retire to the house for a game of pool or simply relax with one of the books from the library. Each of the three bedrooms has a spectacular ocean view and large ensuite bathroom. With its own living area and balcony, you may never want to leave the 1000 square foot master bedroom or its large soaker bathtub. Should you require extra space, there are also 4 apartments available at a small additional cost. Sorry, the apartments can only be rented in conjunction with the main house and are not available for separate rental. Whatever you decide to do with your time here, you'll be doing it in a truly one of a kind setting. Orquidea del Sur has been a labour of love for us and we look forward to sharing it with you, our guests. Enjoy. Robert and Joanne - Owners ... more less
