Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in San Juan del Sur - Casa 72

4 br, 3 ba, sleeps 9-12, in SJdSur. Walk to town, beach. Ocean & mountain view.

Imagine a place where the sparkling Pacific glows sapphire by day and at nightfall, erupts in a kaleidoscopic display of orange, pink and purple.

Imagine a place where birdsong and the whistle of cool ocean breezes are the soundtrack to life – a life that, somehow, exists just three minutes' walking distance to a funky beach town where open-air markets, roadside chicken roasts and oceanfront cocktails are part of the everyday.

Imagine a home where sophisticated design meets homey spaces. An architectural gem that is as unique as San Juan del Sur itself – a place that feels both like home and like somewhere you never knew existed.

Imagine a getaway of vibrantly colored windowpanes that frame spectacular ocean views, and of four tropical balconies that invite you to check real life – and all its stressors – at the door. An escape where you can relax and unwind with the Pacific at your feet.

Imagine your own little slice of paradise.

Welcome, friends. Welcome to Casa 72, an oceanview retreat perched atop a gently sloping hillside, where panoramic ocean views are bounded only by the horizon's own limits.

Welcome to a home where you can swing in a poolside hammock or stare at an inky sky, alive with the twinkling of far off constellations.

A home where you can gather around your private pool, sheltered by the shade of a local Guaiacum (guayacán) tree.

A place where you can grill up the catch of the day in the comfort of your own patio, or take a two-block sojourn to a smorgasbord of restaurants and cuisines downtown.

Welcome to a place where sea breezes whisper and birds chirp, to a getaway where convenience does not come at the price of relaxation. Because while Casa 72 is just two blocks to lively downtown, its bluff-top location affords not only incredible views, but also privacy and leisure away from the hustle and bustle.

So whether you stay a week or a month, you won't need a rental car to explore lively San Juan del Sur and its myriad attractions.

And for those who do rent a vehicle, the wonders of Nicaragua are yours to explore: Scour the coast from south to north, catching epic waves and surfing 'til you can surf no more. Trek volcanoes and set off on island adventures. Explore colonial towns and shop colorful markets. Enjoy the best daytrips that our friendly country has to offer, and come home every night to a welcoming home-away-from-home.

Casa 72 is a home designed for families, a home designed for beach living – for vacationers who appreciate the sun, the sand, and high design.

The home's architecture, from its high windows to its multiple balconies, is built for your full enjoyment of San Juan del Sur's beautiful vistas and tropical living.

Add to all this on-site housekeeping, attentive and bilingual owners, and security, and you have a recipe for the most sophisticated, sought-after vacation rental in downtown San Juan del Sur.

Our home is ideal for:

• FAMILY TRAVEL & FAMILY REUNIONS

Casa 72, with its comfortable bedrooms (and multiple bed arrangements) open rooms and diverse gathering spaces, is perfect for large families and family reunions.

• MULTI-GENERATIONAL TRAVEL

With four air-conditioned bedrooms, seven separate levels, a private pool and outdoor space, our home offers the perfect layout for multiple generations to gather – and to enjoy some precious alone time, when necessary.

• FRIEND GETAWAYS

Planning a guy trip or a girlfriend getaway? Casa 72 offers four private bedrooms and three full bathrooms, providing the flexible space you need when traveling with friends.

• YOUNG ADULT TRAVEL

Responsible young adults in town to surf, learn Spanish, or simply experience Nicaragua and San Juan del Sur, will love our home's chill vibe and perfect location to town.

- - - NEARBY ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS

San Juan del Sur is an idyllic blend of beachside funkiness and Nicaraguan charm. But if you can drag yourself away from our little town, here are a few of our favorite activities and daytrips:

• SURFING: San Juan del Sur is convenient to several world-famous surfing beaches.

• CANOPY TOUR: Just five minutes from Casa 72, our favorite zipline tour offers 2.5 km (1.5 miles) of high-flying fun.

• SAILBOAT TOUR: Afternoon sailing tours depart daily, welcoming you to snorkel, scuba dive, fish or just enjoy the views.

• INSHORE OR DEEP-ESA FISHING: Take to the Pacific and fight your way to a champion catch of sailfish, marlin and dorado.

• CHRIST OF THE MERCY: A beautiful hike over a hanging bridge to Central America's largest Jesus statue – and a fantastic view.

• OMETEPE ISLAND: The drive and a ferry-boat ride are worth it when you see the twin-cones of volcanic Ometepe island.

• GRANADA: The colonial city of Granada offers up equal doses of charm and history. While you're there, book a tour to Lake Nicaragua's hundreds of isletas (tiny islands)!

• LAGUNA DE APOYO: Just two hours from our home, this crystalline lagoon is a perfect daytrip for tranquil swimming and picnicking.

• MOMBACHO VOLCANO: The journey up the towering cone of Mombacho Volcano – home to four separate craters! – takes you on a picturesque ride through coffee fields and fairytale cloud forest.

• MASAYA VOLCANO: An active volcano. Known by Spanish conquistadors as the “entrance to hell.'

• MASAYA MARKETS: Get the handmade souvenir of your dreams, always at a bargain price.

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.
