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 NicaraguaIn the upper reaches of Pelican Eyes you'll find Casa de Cooper.

See the Ocean and Valley from Everywhere

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.

Meet and Great Team - Full Staff on Site

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 Madroo 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.

About George Cooper

In 2004 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.

Why George Cooper chose San Juan del Sur

Located on a hill top inside of Pelican Eyes Resort, Vista Paraiso has magnificent unique views of San Juan del Sur bay and the Palermo valley and is private.

Vista Paraiso was carefully planned and designed in order to take advantage of the amazing views from each area of the house. This vacation home has 2 bedrooms,a living areas and 3 bathrooms along with a private plunge pool and plenty of outdoor space. Prices shown for this 2 Bedroom Villa are for four guests, two bedroom usage and can house as many as 8 guests.

great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented 2 bedrooms of the villa and were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. Everything was spotless! The property manager, Gabriel, lives close by and took care of every detail of our visit. We declined the daily housekeeping and washed our own dishes. We also found the plunge pool to be a great gathering place in the heat of the day..... which is ALL day. We would love to return again. Thanks!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I'll start out first by saying that Mr Cooper is one of, if not the, most responsive VRBO owner I have ever dealt with. Before we even arrived to his place I felt catered to. He helped me with transportation details amongst other things and I am truly grateful. Second, Casa De Cooper is just fantastic. All the detail have been well thought out. Magnificent vista views from each balcony and greatly appointed rooms greet you at every turn. The showers are truly a dream to get cleaned up in. The pool is pleasant as well. The housekeeping staff do a great job and Gabriel the grounds keeper was also very nice to work with.

I would recommend this place to anyone. We were a family of four with 2 kids ages 10 and 13. The kids had fun both at Casa De Cooper and the Pelican Eyes property. My kids took advantage of the free DVD movies they have at the family pool. They enjoyed the lifelike surround sound watching these movies in the master suite as my wife I and I took in the views off the bedroom patio.

The beds are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The backup generator was a nice perk as the power grid in Nicaragua can be less than reliable.

My only negative and this barely counts is the unreliability of getting a ride into town. We were able to get the front desk to arrange transportation sometimes but other times we just sat in waiting, eventually having to hoof it into town. This is not bad on this home, probably more a problem with our communication skills in dealing with Pelican Eyes. Getting back to the house is a breeze though, for a mere $5 any taxi will wisk your family straight up the hill in minutes.

We will be coming back and staying in this wonderful Casa. We hope to next time bring a larger group and rent out everything Mr Cooper has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a great review. We are always happy to help our guests with transportation. The overhead showers are truly a dream to have especially with the abundant hot water. We try our best to be a family orientated place for a great family vacation. It is especially nice to sit on your private balcony with a view of your private pool. Thank you for letting us know about the transportation furnished by the resort. We will talk with them as they do provide a scheduled pickup for getting to town. Sandra and I look forward to your return to our little piece of paradise. George

Fabulous Vila with a great view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (kids are 9 and 11) stayed here for 5 nights here in March and loved it. We took the 2 bedroom option which gave us a massive space over 2 floors. We loved the full kitchen and the view and while we didn't use the plunge pool we did use the family infinity pool a 5 min walk away every day.

Only negative is the hike uphill from the town, but we found taxis easy to come by.

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.

Other Activities:

Fishing

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. ******
