About Samuel Barreto

Built in 1972 by a renown nicaraguan architect, for his own family.

Samuel Barreto purchased this house in 1972

Why Samuel Barreto chose San Juan del Sur

Our family vacations in San Juan del Sur since the 1930's. The trip from Managua back then involved taking a horse-driven coach, a train to Granada, a steamship (vapor Victoria) to San Jorge, and another train to San Juan del Sur. Our great grandmother rented a house for a couple of months every year. Our grandmother bought a house. Our father, an architect, built Casa 72 in 1972.

What makes this house unique

In the heart of town

No car needed

Ample and comfortable spaces

Enjoy the lively town life, day and night, within walking distance

Excellent for families or small groups

Excellent stay in San Juan Del Sur

  • 5 out of 5
This house was great - we were all very pleased with our choice to stay here. The large airy rooms, pool, quirky-cool character, and on-site housekeeping were huge bonuses that exceeded our expectations going in. The house really is a couple of blocks off the beach and we were glad for that as it buffered us from the noise of the beachfront avenue. While the beach in SJDS was nice, the real gems are out of town. Remonso and Maderas were our favorite beaches although we didn't try Hermosa - it was closed because "Survivor" was being filmed there during our stay! The pool was perfect for our two young children and was impeccably maintained by Luis and his wife. Luis and Darlen were a wonderful addition to our experience at this house, as they looked out for our every need and were available around the clock. We weren’t sure how it would be to have staff share the grounds with us, but it ended up being an enriching experience. We took them up on their offer to cook for us on several occasions and were very pleased. Two highlights were a seafood feast of shrimp and lobster, and a traditional Nica meal including gallo pinto (fried beans and rice), maduros (cooked, soft bananas) and home-made tortillas. Better than the restaurants in town! We had a group of 8 and had more than enough room for us to spread out. We did have a rental car and it was convenient to have, although not absolutely necessary as there are shuttles heading out to the various beaches. Overall, I give this VRBO house my highest recommendation.

Best place to stay in San Juan Del Sur!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the best "home-away" that I have ever stayed at. I found it through the home away app on my iPhone and it is exactly what it looks like in the pictures. Actually, even better. Very clean, spacious and very cool architecture. It is a big house with a beautiful view of San Juan and the ocean. Perfect to see the sunset. It is located right downtown, without the feeling of being downtown. No noise, very safe with electric fence and not much traffic nearby. The caretakers of the house live there but you don't even know they are there. They clean and take care of the pool and garden.
The owner is very helpful and speaks english and spanish fluently. I highly recommend this house to any family or a group of friends. I personally stayed there with 7 friends and had an amazing stay. I am planning another trip to San Juan Del Sur, just to stay here for a few weeks.

The most artistic and confortable house in San Juan del Sur

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Barreto is the most artistic and comfortable house in San Juan del Sur. Built by Sam Barreto, one of the best and creative architects of Nicaragua, this 5 bedroom, 6 story house is the best option for anyone wishing to spend a wonderful vacation in SJS. It is an art deco inspired house, built out of wood with large original windows, great open doors, multiple balconies, and great luminous spaces. It has four comfortable bedrooms with air-conditioning, and one small bedroom with a fan. Three modern bathrooms, a wonderful kitchen, a dinning room for 12, two living rooms, a bar, a small but delicious pool, and the best area of the house, a terrace with a sitting area under a wonderful tree. If you pay extra, Monica, the house keeper will cook for you the best fish in SJS. The house is two short blocks from the beach, in the heart of the town, so be prepared for some noise and activity, which in fact is part of the SJS experience. Be also prepared to go up and down the stair several times a day, excellent exercise for your legs. In closing, there in no better deal and a more original experience in SJS than Casa Barreto.

Great house, highly recommended

  • 5 out of 5
We were a bit worried booking the property as it didn't have any reviews but when we arrived, saw the place and met Samuel and Juan we were really happy we took the risk. Its an amazing house. The photos don't do it justice. Its spacious, is really well designed and 2 mins walk from the centre of town. Definitely recommended.
