About the property

Spectacular location above Playa Yankee Beach **FAMOUS SURFING, AMAZING VIEWS**

Come to Paradise at Yankee! Our spot neighbors the famous Orquedia Del Sur Five Star Boutique Inn, so you can know for sure that are location is 5 Star EPIC.

We have recently added an outdoor gym, coordinated horseback riding excursions leaving from the property, and hired a driver to work exclusively for us.

In addition, because of changes in the vacation rental industry that are making it more expensive than ever before to rent a vacation rental, we have cut our rates significantly. Now, you can still visit our place without paying any increase at all. And as always, we don't tack on extra charges, there is no deposit required, and we don't have a separate charge for taxes, or fees. You'll see. Very simple. ***There is a fee charged by the site that I believe is for VRBO's Book With Confidence Guarantee.

Please inquire for our competitive rates (most competitive in the area to date) for airport rides, rides in the area, and rides to Ometepe Island with our Professional Chauffeur in our large and well maintained SUV.

*Like us on our Facebook page "Playa Yankee Paradise" for money saving opportunities!

Facing famous Playa Yankee surf break known all over Central America for being one of the best surf breaks around. At our property perfectly situated for arguably the best view in the world, you will have the pristine and expansive Playa Yankee beach on a silver platter.

*** American Way magazine's July 2015 edition says in "Undiscovered Country" about Nicaragua that when coming to our area "[v]isitors come here looking for powerhouse waves during the day and barefoot bars at night. In-the-know surfers head to nearby PLAYA YANKEE during high tide or Maderas for its legendary 6- to 10-foot waves."


Our Villa at Playa Yankee is truly a PARADISE ON EARTH.

South of San Juan Del Sur, Playa Yankee is where you will get spectacular views of Costa Rica. And the most beautiful stretch of coast in all of Nicaragua! As well as the most wonderful isolated beaches around!

Not far from the hustle and bustle of San Juan Del Sur, life can't get easier. No obnoxious noise and pollution, no fuss! Just pristine nature everywhere. There are restaurants, yoga, and a spa in the area, and town is only ten miles from our house.

Our paradise is for those that would love to be in a spectacularly beautiful area that is not far from town, with a huge beach and awesome surf break, and a place that is definitely not full of people everywhere. Our property is the perfect place to spend an incredible vacation.

Set right above Playa Yankee beach, our property consists of a large one bedroom house, with a large day room with two beds. The house can sleep four very comfortably.

We also have a cabina on our property that we rent, and it has a queen size mattress which sleeps up to two people comfortably. This cabin if available, may be added to your reservation if your party consists of more than four people, or if your party would like more space. The house plus the cabin sleep six. We even have an air mattress that we can lend if your group needs one more bed.

We are excited about the beach rancho restaurant that has just opened a short walk from our property. Could not get cooler.

If you prefer to not rent a car, we have a driver who can pick you up to and from the airport, for the best rate in the area. He will take you by the grocery store on the way to the house (store hours depending). Our driver is also available to take you for a spectacular day on Ometepe Island and rides around the area. No need to rent a car, we got you covered!

We can facilitate horse back riding from our doorsteps. The horses come to you, and from our house is the most exquisite horseback riding experience you can imagine.

In the area as well there are professional spa services, yoga classes, and rental surf boards. We usually have two surfboards to rent as well.

House consists of a lovely master bedroom with a queen sized bed on beautiful organic wood. The master bathroom is fully equipped, and the shower is a huge space for your enjoyment. Our property's amazing one bedroom and one bath house, also has a very large day room with two comfortable sofa beds, cathedral like ceilings, and extraordinary views from every point.

At our property, you will discover a spectacular paradise with 180 degree panoramic views all over the house, and sitting above a long beautiful beach with a famous wave that surfers love! Surfers looove our house since the view is perfect for determining when the surf conditions are ideal. No need to leave the house in vain. Our open air house is a nature lovers dream come true!

Both the house and the cabina (which can be rented as well), have surreal views.

The house's kitchen and dining room are open and airy. You can dine on the gigantic dining room table made of organic wood, and accompanied by six matching chairs; or on the wooden deck with the best views in the area.

The main house has a beautiful wooden deck adjoining the open and airy living room with the two convertible beds, made of organic wood. There is a covered deck off the master bedroom as well.

Our cool cabina should it be available and you would like to add it to your reservation, has a a queen sized bed, a sitting área with a countertop stove and a kitchen sink, and full sized bathroom with a stone sink and wooden counter.

The cabina also has a lovely covered deck where occupants can enjoy the day watching the surreal beauty of the área.

There is a stainless steel gas bbq on the property for grilling.

We also have an outdoor shower.

On the property for our guest's enjoyment is an exquisite swimming pool, a relaxing rancho, and pristine nature everywhere! We recently added parallel bars, a pull up bar, and a sit up bed near the pool. A vacation at our property can be a health transforming experience!

Of course no vacation is fun without internet, and we went big here too. In our opinion, based on trial and error and others experience, there is one internet provider in Nicaragua that is top notch. They are expensive but in our opinion, worth every penny. Once you have stayed elsewhere in Nicaragua, you will really appreciate our fast as lightening wifi!

We have modems in both the house and cabina too, so no need to worry when everyone is using the internet in the mornings and the evenings.

We have satellite televisión in both the house and cabina, and have just switched companies so now we have more English speaking channels than we did previously.

In the house there is a large locking cabinet.

Plenty of free parking in the front of the house.

We have evening security, on top of being in a very safe location. Actually, where we are, Cantamar de Yankee, is probably the safest place in the San Juan Del Sur area. It is an exclusive community, with a security entrance onto the development, in an already safe, quiet, and peaceful area. Another major reason that our location can't be beat!

We want you to enjoy the spectacular area and nature, but most of all, we want you to have a carefree and SAFE vacation. That is why we are proud to offer our home in arguably the safest spot in Nicaragua!

Check-in time is 4pm and check-out time is 11am.

We hope you will let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to our guests having a wonderful vacation at our Playa Yankee Paradise.

**For a larger party than 1-4 people, but no more than 6ppl total, we have a cabin on site that if available can be added to accommodate a party of up to 6 people.

Why Pablo Gabriel chose Nicaragua

Because this is the best spot in the whole San Juan Del Sur área. It is the first place I saw, and after looking and looking at other properties, I said take me back to Playa Yankee! This spot is special, magical, and you will not want to leave.

What makes this house unique

You are on the best surf beach in the área, but because it is a hop skip and jump from the city, yet we are not crowded with tourists. We often have the large and expansive beach to ourselves. The air is pure and pristine here. We have the harmonizing sounds of nature around us. It is the best life here at Playa Yankee!

Amazing spot for a friendly group

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights with some close friends from home and some of our Australian friends. This could not have been a better spot to hang out and get to see great people again.

On our first night, after cooking a great dinner all together, my friend proposed to his girlfriend and we had an epic party until the early morning!

The next night was new years and although we were a tired lot, again we saw the sun rise.

Although the house is a bit out of town, our hosts organized a ride to the house in a big land rover that fit not only us, all of our food and bags, but another nice couple and their newborn child. It only takes about 20 mins from town and the drive is beautiful.

You have it all at this location. Seclusion, amenities, a pool overlooking a beautiful sunset and lots of room. I couldn't have been happier.

It was also super easy talking with Nicole and Pablo. They went above and beyond.

If you are looking for a place for a couples getaway, a group reunion or seclusion, look no further.

This place has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views of the ocean, a pool, and easy access to the beach - this place has something for everyone. We rented a car and Pablo gave us fantastic instructions on how to find the place, they were super detailed and we were able to get right to the front door with ease. If you're a traveler who is looking for a "next level" place to relax, Casa Pablo is for you. If you surf, you're in luck because the beach down below the house has some great waves. Animal lover? You'll see and hear howler monkeys near the property, and the bird-watching is fantastic! The town of San Juan del Sur is a 15-20 minute drive (although since the roads have recently improved that time might lessen), and it's a nice little place to shop, have dinner, and enjoy a chill vibe. The pictures don't lie, this place is FOR REAL and it's simply awesome.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such a delightful guest and this wonderful review! We really appreciate it. We agree that our home is set in an amazing spot. We went big on the location, sparing no expense. Thank you for appreciating the swimming pool that is big enough for two people to swim laps at the same time. A huge step above the small dipping pools that are so common in Nicaragua. Thank you for appreciating the surreal views, and proximity to the spectacular Playa Yankee Beach with it's great waves. You were very thoughtful in choosing our place, and we so appreciate your enthusiasm for all the things that we are so happy to offer. Thank you so much for visiting, and we'd LOVE to have you back!

Beautiful view and great spot

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and the view was incredible. The place is pretty far from the San Juan Del Sur so would recommend either renting a vehicle or having transportation set up as there isn't really anything within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that you enjoyed your time at our place! Since our property is less than ten miles to San Juan Del Sur, a cool town with a lot of restaurants, bars, shopping, we think it's the best of two worlds. Close to town and all amenities, yet you can enjoy a relaxing holiday in a beautiful place with an abundance of nature and pristine beaches not full of people. Also, for any guests that need a ride, we have a chauffeur and will happily set you up with transportation. Thank you again for being our guest, and for this positive review. We'd love to have you again.

"Buenas Vibras!"

  • 5 of 5

An amazing experience that I will NEVER forget! Casa Pablo is the perfect place if you're seeking relaxation, solitude, and escape from the hustle and bustle of San Juan Del Sur and elsewhere; a true gem in the jungle. The hosts are extremely accommodating and met each one of my needs - definitely somewhere I'll be returning to in the future. Access to beach, surf, nearby yoga studios, local food spots... everything within your fingertips.

Comfortable and Private beach

  • 4 of 5

Casa Pablo was located in the perfect location for a quiet getaway with incredible views and a very secluded and virtually private beah a short walk away. The Pool was great for cooling off inbetween naps :-) Very clean and modern and Pablo and Nicole were easy to deal with.
