Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in San Juan del Sur - Vista Paraiso - 2 Bedroom Casa

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathrooms With Ocean View.

We all know the golden rule of property – ubicación, ubicación, ubicación. Carved into a premier patch of hillside above San Juan del Sur, the Casa de Cooper villa located inside of Pelican Eyes Resort and Spa has that in abundance. For commanding views of the Pacific Ocean, ascend its sprawling grounds along brick paths that wind through lush gardens. Gaze out onto rocky cliffs standing guard over boats that bob in a serene horseshoe-shaped bay. Nature puts on evening shows with fiery sunsets that glisten across the inlet's glossy surface.

A Luxury Vacation in Nicaragua

In the upper reaches of Pelican Eyes, you'll find Casa de Cooper. Prominently overlooking the ocean and verdant Palermo Valley, the tropical retreat is graced by whitewashed adobe, artfully weathered brick and rustic terracotta. Teak trees grown on site are harvested for smooth hand-hewn rails that top low external walls, as well as for the posts and beams of shade structures. Pools, gardens and patios are tucked into hideaway sanctuaries throughout the devotedly landscaped exterior.

A bilingual meet-and-greet team shows you inside. Handmade artisan works are found just about everywhere your gander falls, from hand-carved wood furnishings to locally sewn textiles and bespoke art pieces. The trunk of a Madroño, Nicaragua's national tree, has been smoothed into a beam that rises to a soaring ceiling. Cavernous bathrooms feature tiling with colorful, hand-painted accents, along with rainfall showerheads. Glazed sinks have hand-painted designs, while other basins are carved from singular blocks of silky stone.

San Juan del Sur Accommodations of Every Size

Air-conditioned accommodations span a wide range, with the flexibility to receive a large group, a couple, or any size party in between. Vista Paraíso is a spacious two or three-bedroom villa with views of both the ocean and valley. Its roomy master Winchester Suite has a private entrance and separate seating area with a large flat-screen TV. Step out onto your own covered patio and settle into an oversized wicker chair to have coffee as the wide valley spreads out before you. Wind down steps to refresh in your private plunge pool, fringed by manicured greenery in an intimate setting. Another of Vista Paraíso's bedrooms leads to a large covered patio with rocking chairs to enjoy ocean-facing vistas. A third bedroom has a lock-off option, is a luxury suite with a private patio, while turning the or two-bedroom villa into a three-bedroom getaway.

Gourmet Nicaraguan Cuisine With a Twist

The accommodation comes with full kitchens, outfitted with every gadget, utensil and piece of cookware one could need to whip up a meal. Don't feel like cooking? The resort's restaurants and bars are just a short walk away. You can also make a call down to the resort and order up some room service. Or, for a more elegant culinary experience, indulge in service from a personal chef. A made-to-order menu is available, with Asian-infused dishes like coconut shrimp with sweet and sour sauce, and lobster tempura. Savor locally sourced ingredients as you dig into filet mignon with chimichurri sauce, or grilled pork with jalapeño cream sauce. If that is not enough, you have a gas BBQ grill just outside of the kitchen.

Explore San Juan del Sur Attractions

You'll be a 15-minute walk down to the beach and a waterfront lined with inviting restaurants. Relax with a tropical cocktail and take in the sunset with sublime views of a serene harbor in an Instagram-perfect scene. The shoreline is backed by the tiny town of San Juan del Sur, which has diverse offerings despite its postage-stamp size. In the morning, it's perfect for a wander down charming streets, stopping at a friendly cafe or to rest on a shaded bench in the central park. By night, it can be something of a party scene with backpackers and surfers boozing it up at lively bars. From Casa de Cooper, you'll also be a hearty 40-minute hike (or 10-minute drive) to the Christ the Mercy statue. Perched high atop the bay's northern seawall, the 25-meter-tall likeness of Jesus is one of the area's most-visited attractions. It's also a 10-minute drive to visit one of the largest zip-line complexes in Nicaragua. Da Flying Frog canopy tour has two-and-a-half kilometers of cable crossing 17 platforms in a tropical forest that's home to monkeys and rich birdlife. With a 25-minute drive you can be lazing in a hammock on Playa Hermosa, a popular seaside enclave that also offers volleyball and horseback riding. The world-class surf spot of Playa Maderas is a 30-minute drive from Casa de Cooper.

About George Cooper

In 2006 we visited friends in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. We immediately fell in love with Nicaragua and this small fishing village.

We purchased this property as a retirement and vacation home after a 1 week visit to San Juan del Sur. It started as a 1 bedroom house and grew to a 3 bedroom house and a 1 bed room unit that is used as a honeymoon suite. We only rent 2 of the bedrooms. The third bedroom was a private suite reserved for our family. We have now converted this suite to serve as the Master Bedroom. We have 2 private pools and large private patios. We hope you will find Casa de Cooper as inviting as we have since 2006.

Casa Cooper is luxury a stone's throw from San Juan town

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband and two friends stayed at Casa Cooper in June. The house was beautiful with great design features throughout. It was so spacious and had all the modern things you need. It is a short walk downhill to San Juan town. This house gives you all the comforts while still being close to the action. It also has all the amenities of the pelican eyes resort which was great for using the pool, restaurant and bar when we wanted to stay closer to home. Gabriel the manager was so helpful with any questions we had about the area. I would highly recommend Casa Cooper to anyone looking to vacation in the area.

A beautiful and upscale place to stay in San Juan Del Sur

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Cooper is a great place to stay in San Juan Del Sur. It's location is very convenient to town but you sit above it with beautiful views of the ocean and valley. The home itself is very nicely appointed and we did not have anything we needed that was not provided. The showers deliver consistent hot water, the generator insured that we did not lose power all the time, and the beds were really comfortable. George was an absolute pleasure to work with and Gabriel (the house manager) was attentive and helpful whenever we needed him. Pelican Eyes is a great destination and we will return to Casa De Cooper! I would recommend a car to get to town and the northern beaches.

Fun at the top

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cooper is a great place to be. I have just returned from a 3 week stay at the house and can report that is is a wonderful experience. While San Juan Del Sur is quite the crusty place, Casa Cooper is just the opposite...it is clean, quiet, efficient and there are terrific views out of every window. It is also at the top of the hill, so the noise and the confusion of the town are nonexistent. If you want to live in a deluxe environment while having all the fun of San Juan Del Sur, Casa Cooper should be your selection..

Pelican Eyes

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were phenomenal. My youngest son referred to the place as 'The Best Hotel Ever!' even though it was not a hotel. The place had a spectacular view and was close to town not to mention the restaurant at Pelican Eyes. There is lots to do in San Juan del Sur and if we stay in San Juan del Sur again it will be at this venue. It was amazing. Cannot say enough!!!1

There are many activities and things to do in San Juan del Sur. Here are a few ideas while you are guest of Casa de Cooper. *****

Bring out the adventurer in you with Aracne Rappelling Tours. Rappelling down a 45-meter waterfall located deep in the forest, and then hike down following the creek until reaching a petroglyph made by the indigenous tribes that lived in the area before the Spanish came to America. *****

Da Flying Frog canopy tour is located just minutes from Casa de Cooper. The tour is located on the Palermo Valley which can be viewed from any of the Casa de Cooper units. It offers 2.5 kilometers divided in 16 lines through the forest. While on the excursion, you can see the wildlife of Nicaragua taking time to spot monkeys, birds and other animals. ******

If you are into fishing then San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua is your best destination for a new fishing adventure. Nicaragua has world-class fishing; you will hook up a Sailfish, Dorado, Mackerel, Yellow fin Tuna or Rooster Fish. There are many places in town that offer fishing trips everyday, the cost per hour is between U$40 to U$80 dollars (minimum 3 hours), depending on the boat and how far you want to go. ******

Enjoy a day of sailing aboard Pelican Eyes or one of the other many sailboats available. You will have the opportunity to explore the pristine Nicaraguan coastline, peek at many of secluded bays, capture glimpses of dolphins, whales, sea turtles and perhaps catch a mahi-mahi or two – all while you relax, soak up some sun and enjoy our local fare and refreshing rum punch. ******

The mountains surrounding San Juan del Sur bay are great for hiking. You can hike to the statue of Jesus, to the lighthouse or to several neighboring beaches. You can also take horseback riding along the beaches. Rancho el Chilamate is one of the best places for horseback riding and tours. Reservations are required. ******

Zen Yoga Studio is the place to go when wanting the best in Yoga. Their garden setting creates a calming effect, increasing oxygen supply throughout your body. Set your shoes and worries aside, grab a mat and join any of their professional instructors in the upstairs yoga canopy. They are located directly opposite the San Juan Pizzeria near the church square. ******

Nicaragua is well known for its world-class waves, specially in San Juan del Sur and Tola area because of the year-round offshore winds that hit the coast. There are great waves around for all type of surfers, from beginners to experienced surfers. If you need a Surf Lesson for you and your family or need a Surf Guide to show you around, then you best option is our friend Baldo, a well-known professional bilingual Surf Instructor, he is very helpful and enjoys playing on the waves. ******

Enhance your vacation – make it a true Central American cultural experience! There are many Spanish language schools in town that offer expert instruction with courses specifically designed for travelers and explorers. ******
