About the property

Magnificent House On Pacific Ocean 3 Minutes From Town with car and driver!

Welcome to the ultimate ocean front home in the Nicaraguan town of San Juan Del Sur. A home designed by the premier architect of the country and winner of the Cemtex architecture award. This house was designed to where when you walk in it feels as if your on a yacht looking out to sea. No expense has been spared to make Rocas Y Olas (rocks and waves) the house you always dreamed of renting.

One of the biggest advantages of our home in Paradise Bay is that it comes with a car and a driver. We have a Toyota Landcruiser at your disposal. Forget the hassle of renting a vehicle, simply have our driver take you to whatever beach or restaurant you want to go to. Every weekly rental comes with complimentary trips into town and as many as 4 trips to the local surf beaches.

Even though you are so close to town (San Juan Del Sur), you seem as if you are a world away with an entire bay to yourself. A bay where you can enjoy watching the waves crash, the pelicans play, and the dolphins splash. Special amenities include 2 salt water infinity edge pools, one of them being a 50 foot lap pool literally along the pacific ocean. Every single room of the house has a direct ocean view which is just a few meters away. Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to the sounds of the surf all the while enjoying the panoramic ocean views from EVERY room.

Wifi is available throughout the house and grounds. Sit with your laptop at one of the pools and email photos of paradise bay to your friends.

Three 65 inch flat screen tv’s all with surround sound are located throughout the house for your convenience. We have United States Dish TV with every channel available. After playing on the beach all day your kids can enjoy playing our xbox one.

We have a surround sound speaker system throughout the house, just plug in your iPhone and press play to enjoy dancing to your own music on of the patios or while you enjoy one of our spectacular sunsets. For your added pleasure we have installed special lights which completely illuminate the ocean at night. This allows you to watch the waves crash against the rocks while swimming or spending time on any of our patios.

One extra benefit of the house is that it is backed up by a generator, so if for some reason paradise loses power, your lights, airconditioning, and everything else electric will still be on.

A team of friendly staff are on hand to provide excellent, personalized service around the clock. They provide daily maid service, cooking, grocery shopping.

The drive to town is approximately 3-4 minutes, or you can choose to walk which takes about 15 minutes.

Rocks and Waves is offered by the owner Ksenia Voshikova. A phone number and email is available and she will be delighted to help you plan your perfect vacation.

About Ksenia

We are sure you will love Nicaragua as much as we do and we and our team will make every effort to insure that your stay at Rocas y Los Olas is wonderful.

Ksenia purchased this house in 2014

Why Ksenia chose Paradise Bay

On our first trip to Nicaragua we were shown this land and we immediately fell in love with the location and Paradise Bay. We bought the land and decided to build our dream house. We were lucky and found an architect that maximized the views and tranquility the location offers. It is designed for relaxation, peace and privacy. Rocas y los Olas is bound to delight families, attract couples and seduce even the most hardened workaholic into restful submission.

What makes this house unique

-There are direct ocean views from every room in the house.

-You are just 3 minutes away from town, but do not have any of the town noise.

- The security system on the house is the best available so you can sleep with peace of mind that your family and friends are safe at all times

- A team of warm and friendly staff are on hand to provide excellent , personalized service around the clock.

Heaven can wait, in the meantime I’m coming here

  • 5 of 5

Let me put it bluntly, there are very few places like this one in the entire world that are available to rent. Why? Because most homes of this magnificence are simply never put on the rental market by the extraordinarily wealthy people who own them. I’ve stayed in this property several times and have come to know the owners who are simply fabulous people. They certainly don’t need to rent this place, but they enjoy enabling others to experience the breathtaking wonder that is Rocas y Olas.

There are plenty of reviews covering the jaw-dropping oceanside location, the proximity to town, the wonderful staff, etc. Let me describe an experience instead. I stayed in the master suite and would leave the massive sliding doors open so that I could fall asleep each night to the sound of the ocean waves. One night I was awoken by what I thought was one of my children shining a flashlight in my eyes. When I gathered my senses, I realized that is was THE MOON! For the rest of my life I will never forget the next hour which I spent outside on the balcony marveling at the brightest moon I’d ever seen glistening on the bay, moonlight dancing on the ocean in a magical display of silver and shadow that bathed the lush hillsides in ethereal luminescence. It was a truly otherworldly experience I’ll cherish forever.

If this place if available, book it. You can see some of my photos on Instagram at #rocasyolas.

Amazing house in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

This stunning house is a must visit. I went to Nicaragua with some local friends who brought me San Juan del Sur. The moment I got to the house I decided I never wanted to leave. The house itself has all the amenities you could ever want and you get spectacular views day and night.

A breathtaking oasis with complete solitude just minutes from town

  • 5 of 5

5+ STAR all around! This beautiful open concept house has million dollar views from every window. I felt very secure being in what felt like a very secluded area although we were only 5 minutes from the festivities in town.

Jasmine, the house server was as pleasant and helpful as if she were our own mother. We were 4 girls renting the home for a week to celebrate our milestone 40th birthdays, and celebrate is what we did! In fine style! Champagne in the pool over looking waves crashing over the cliffs, or if we wanted to go into town, Armando the house driver would bring us to any location in town to have dinner and find local night life. We were treated like royalty! It really made me feel like I was living a life of the rich and famous! I would definitely recommend this home, and would love to return to this stunning oasis. I cannot express enough how beautiful it was and what an amazing place this was to stay in. The pictures do not do it justice.

Amazing Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister invited me to come along with her and two of her friends for vacation. The house is beautiful and sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean. It has two gorgeous infinity pools, three bedrooms with A/C, a private security guard and a wonderful couple who take care of well, everything. The view is incredible and gives the feeling of being secluded, even though San Juan Del Sur is a short drive away. There are lots of adventures to go on. We personally had a new adventure every day of our trip! I would most definitely stay here again!

Our stay in Rocas Y las Olas, Paradise Bay, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua was AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This was the BEST stay EVER! We were four women celebrating our birthdays and there is no better backdrop that Rocas Y las Olas. This is my second time in this amazing home, situated atop a small mountain overlooking the ocean waves. My three friends and I got in late from Managua and as we were coming up the hill they were all looking forward to falling right into bed.... that is until they got their first glimpse of the house. Needless to say it was like watching kids explore their new house! Everyone was fired up, exploring the rooms and the view. We immediately popped open a bottle of wine, got in the pool and enjoyed the waves crashing just below. The house staff is friendly, funny, engaging and did everything they could to make us feel like the queens of the castle, even down to giving flowers for our birthdays.

We had a blast cooking in the kitchen with Jasmine the wonderful lady who keeps the home running smoothly and spotlessly while you enjoy relaxing... or in our case, taking over the kitchen.

There is fresh coffee made for you anytime you want it, and never are you left wondering what to eat. Getting to and from town is easy with Armando and Mariano around to give a lift to the beaches, town, or even up to the Big Jesus statue.

The town itself is a fun, laidback town full of friendly locals and helpful and wonderful expats. As four ladies about town we never felt unsafe. There are some amazing expat owned restaurants and even a new brewery. We didn't get to experience the nightlife too much as we wore ourselves out during the day sampling all of the offerings in the small "to do" list given to us by the amazing owners of Rocas Y las Olas. I highly recommend this local to ANYONE looking to feel pampered yet still wanting to feel at home.

We are heading back in July.
