Amazing Ocean And Sunset Views From Casa Sombra Y Sol - 3 Bdrms + Private Pool

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,725 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms With Private Pool. Also Available In 1 or 2 Bedroom Configurations.

Postcard perfect views await you year round at Casa Sombra y Sol. We're just 10 minutes outside of San Juan del Sur but that short drive makes all the difference. Not only do you have unimpeded ocean and sunset views 365 days a year from your private pool but we're just far enough away that the noise from town won't interfere with a perfect nights sleep.

Newly constructed Casa Sombra y Sol (Shade and Sun) was designed with an "inside out" aesthetic to take full advantage of the tropical Nicaraguan climate. Cooking inside in our fully equipped modern kitchen is great but preparing a meal outside in our covered second kitchen as the sun goes down is an experience not to be missed. If these aren't enough options for you, our guests also have access to our ceramic Green Egg, the envy of backyard BBQ'ers everywhere. Our main dining and living areas are also located in the covered outdoor area so, rain, shine or stars, you don't have to waste a minute of your time indoors (unless you want to).

When it is time to step out into the sun, you can bask in one of the loungers or jump straight into our private saltwater pool. The pool even has four submerged stools along the infinity edge so you can create your own postcard-perfect moments watching the sun go down over the Pacific.

Please be aware that our neighbours are currently building their own little piece of paradise. We want all our guests to know that they may hear construction noise during their stay. While the construction continues we are offering a reduced rental rate as compensation for any inconvenience. This discount is already included in our posted prices. Please contact us if you have any questions.

We hope to see you in Nicaragua soon!

Amazing Views & Fantastic Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I do not know where to start since this was truly a memorable trip, but I first have to say that the views from the pool and deck are amazing and one-of-a-kind...the pictures DEFINITELY do not serve justice. For the four days we were there, we used the pool to gaze upon the sunset and enjoy the views of the ocean. A party of four stayed in this house and we all agree we would definitely come back. Paul and Anne were super helpful during our stay and were easily reachable. Furthermore, Ben (who helped with upkeep at the property) and Franklin (like a concierge for the property) were amazing. The location is not easily reachable from town, but these two helped our group gets cabs to and from town and helped us navigate various excursions we planned. They were a valuable asset to this property and made our stay very welcoming. We were debating about renting a vehicle, but Franklin and Ben went above and beyond to assist us with our travel needs, even to go to a local grocery store! I hope to visit this property again in the future because this trip was so memorable. Thank you for such an amazing experience!

Beautiful sunsets from a gorgeous home!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sombra Y Sol. Our five days of spending time with our sons family and new granddaughter were so comfortable. Even before we got there Anne was extremely gracious and helpful guiding us 'home' after we got lost a couple times. (her suggestion, get mapsme on your phone, it works off line and would have saved some time finding our way). We loved cooking dinner in the patio kitchen and eating at the out door table. The pool was a great way to stay cool in the Nica heat.

Paul and Anne recommended that we check out Playa Hermosa. It was a beautiful beach and not that long a drive to get there. We did have to cross a stream 14 times so the 4WD pickup gave us confidence to get through.

Ben came by a couple times each day to check on us and was very helpful.

The kitchen had almost everything we needed, it could use a few things, mixing bowls and an oven pan. The BBQ was nice, it would be helpful if lighter fluid could be provided, we bought charcoal locally but struggled to get it lit. We did not have access to a cloths washer so did them by hand and hung them out to dry. There was some construction on houses above but they stopped work at sunset and didn't start till around 7 so it didn't interrupt us much at all.

The layout of the rooms makes it so the early risers don't wake the late sleepers. We had a great time! Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review - feedback is always greatly appreciated! It was lovely to meet your family. Sorry you had trouble lighting the BBQ - we would have been happy to share the trick to lighting charcoal (for future guests a rolled up napkin soaked in cooking oil lit first - works like a charm!) We do suggest to all our guests that they rent a 4X4 during rainy season, and for you it was even more important as you arrived right after Tropical Storm Nate! Roads were absolutely passable but dirt roads to the beaches were wet. And we do highly recommend as a backup plan for all guests but it is also why we we provide detailed directions prior to arrival, arrange a central place to meet so we can guide you to the property if needed, and make sure you have multiple ways to contact us. We absolutely want your stay with us to be enjoyable from check in to check out! I hope you and your family come back to visit us again!

But that view!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as advertised in terms of space: three bedrooms, large kitchen with additional outside kitchen and common space. The part that the photos don't capture is the stunning pool overlooking one of the private bays outside San Juan del Sur. The view is incredible. This place is farther outside SJDS proper, which means it is quieter but that I would also recommend having a car to get there (make sure it's 4x4!). Would recommend and will definitely be looking to stay here myself again in the future.

An amazing experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent 12 days at Sombra y Sol. We weren't sure what to expect when traveling to Nicaragua for the first time, but what we got was an unforgettable experience! At our arrival, we were greeted by Paul, Franklin, and Ben, who gave us a house tour and told us everything we needed to know about our stay. They were so welcoming and helpful! The house is beautiful and kept very clean. Ben and his wife were available to clean every day, and they were so kind and respectful! The house has AC, which cooled off the rooms quickly, and Wi-Fi was provided. The pool was perfect for relaxing and cooling off, and the view was absolutely breathtaking! We especially enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets!

The house is located in a gated community with a guard, which made us feel very safe. We would suggest renting a car if you're going to be there for more than a few days because it is about a 15 minute drive to town. We were provided with a list of restaurants to try, so we went into town to eat almost every night. The food was absolutely delicious and very fresh tasting, and the prices were a fraction of what it would cost in the US! We suggest trying the lobster risotto at G&G' amazing!! We also enjoyed the nightlife. There are many fun little bars with amazing drinks, and even a few clubs! Such a good time! There's also plenty of daytime activities to do there. We went on a jungle tour (where we saw animals including monkeys and sloths), went horseback riding on the beach, ziplined, and went to about 5 of the MANY beaches there! We also did several days of just relaxing by our own private pool.

Paul, Ben, and Anne checked on us often, making sure we had everything we needed. They definitely went above and beyond to make our stay at Sombra y Sol an amazing one! We would definitely recommend staying here to all of our family and friends!
