Orquidea has taken the B&B to a very high, perhaps even an unreachable level. The moment we stepped onto the patio, my wife and I knew this was going to be an amazing stay. We have traveled all over the world and few places leave a lasting impression on us as did Oquidea.
Robert is a most gracious host and a pleasure to talk to. Yes there is a staff to take care of your every need, which is brilliant since the house is on the beaten path from San Juan del Sur. If you like or need some peace and quite, I could not recommend a better place. The large beach below was void of any tourists when were there. Great waves and plenty of fisherman around to sell you some of their fresh catch. There is a grill on the patio for the guests, or the cook can prepare your catch.
There is not a bad view of the sunsets from anywhere on the property. Absolutely amazing! As were the outdoor dinners we enjoyed.
- 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
