The Villa

Modern Luxury within walking distance to the beach
and town of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Modern Luxury, Creature Comforts!

Open-air rustic not your thing? Want flexibility to sightsee on your own during down time? Try our newest location with A/C! This modern villa is a 3-minute walk from the center of San Juan del Sur. It’s thoughtfully designed for groups offering both communal spaces to gather, as well as spaces to relax in solitude. All bedrooms have A/C and a shared or private bath. Between surfs, enjoy sunbathing from one of the loungers on the pool deck or relax in the shade on one of the cozy lounging beds under the covered porch. This is an ideal location for those wanting to be close to town and experience all the local flavor, while enjoying modern comfort and amenities. Shops, bars, and restaurants are all within walking distance for you to explore! 

“The best surfer out there is

the one having the most fun.”

–Phil Edwards

San Juan del Sur

When you’re not in the water, you can get lost in San Juan’s small town charm. You can buy coconuts from a grocery truck, play soccer in the street, or be greeted by locals after just a few days. In two hours, you’ll be in the capital city of Managua and in 30 minutes, you’ll be in Costa Rica — but we bet you’ll be like us and want to stay here forever!

San Juan del Sur lures openhearted travelers with its pristine beaches, flavorful cuisine, festive nightlife, warm locals, and above all, consistent surf. Its hospitable nature is found in any of the quaint shops and restaurants that line the three-block town center.

Come get lost in San Juan del Sur… and find yourself.
