Upon our arrival at Casa Selva we were greeted by the sounds of the Nicaraguan jungle. The birds, howlers and insects provide a musical symphony that can not be described. The house is absolutely beautiful, elegantly decorated and well supplied (since we love to cook)....More

About the neighborhood
Looking for something a little different? Something a little exotic, a little adventurous, but still with that certain amount of luxury? Experience seclusion and privacy a midst an exotic landscape steps from the ocean and only 20 mins from downtown San Juan del Sur. We have monkeys, sea turtles, surf breaks, hiking, kayaking, sunsets, quiet, tropical forests, and most importantly, beautiful untouched beaches. Our proximity to the lively town of San Juan del Sur allows for exploring the markets, restaurants, bars and entertainment, but also allows you to immerse yourself in what is truly Nicaragua- the sights and sounds of the ocean and country side. What make Balcones de Majagual so unique is its setting. Perched high on a ridge, covering roughly 100 acres stretching from the jungle to the ocean- the casa benefits from incredible views of the pacific ocean while looking over the jungle canopy . There is enough space between the casas 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. 24 hour on site security, cleaning service and management without being intrusive. We are also an ecologic conscious community We do not believe in spraying heavy pesticides like local hotels do to control bugs,, meaning we are not poisoning the food chain from the bottom up. All of our actions have far reaching consequences, and we want monkeys, sloths and parrots to thrive in our locale. Our water is heated by the sun, and all our furniture and wood in the home is reclaimed fallen hardwoods, ethically sourced in north east Nicaragua.

Guests are required to have their own 4WD transpiration in order access the home as well as much of the surrounding SJDS area. We can assist with a rental anywhere in Nicaragua with a small discount as well!
