Best ratio of luxury/value for San Juan Del sur
Casa Olimar was one of the great places we have stayed. The house was clean and spacious. The sun in the mornings and evenings were magnificent. Pacific Marlin subdivision is quiet and high end. The short distance to town made everything so much better. We would enjoy our days and come back to the beautiful house on top of the ocean to relax and power down from our busy lives back home. By far one of the best vacations ever.
This home is beautifully built with amazing views of the ocean. There is a lovely breeze that comes up in the early evening to cool things down. The owner Norman was extremely helpful with all our questions prior to arrival and really helpful with any concerns during our trip. Elizier, the caretaker, was what made our trip a 5 star vacation! He is extremely helpful, friendly and spoke great English. He made sure we saw and did everything! The home is placed on top of the hill so you get the great views, but you really need a vehicle. It is a very steep long hill to walk up in the heat! We rented motorcycles as the roads are extremely safe; everyone is very respectful. You must hire Felicita for some or all of your meals! She is an amazing cook and so friendly. We even went home learning a few new recipes! San Juan Del Sur is a great town with loads of restaurants, shops, beaches around and fun activities. The people are all friendly and the town is totally safe. On our trip all the furniture in the living room, dining room, and outside was worn and needed to be replaced. This was quite a disappointment for us. However by your vacation it should all be replaced as Elizier said he got the approval from Norman to replace everything. My only other recommendation is the home needs a deep clean. Overall our trip was wonderful but as most vacation its due to the people!
Nothing short of excellent
From booking to arrival and departure everything was smooth, easy and prompt. We never had to ask for information as Normand readily provided all we needed to know in advance. He also facilitated us hiring Felicita to cook for us. Great decision! She cooked all our meals, bought groceries and cleaned kitchen after so we could enjoy our stay even more. We ended up renting a vehicle, but if we hadn't, Normand could've booked transportation to/from airport as well. Eliezer, the caretaker went above and beyond by helping us with a couple of car rental issues and directions. He also provided information on activities we could do nearby. The house was just as described in the pictures. We enjoyed the pool and the outdoor space everyday! The house has amazing, breathtaking views from all rooms and outdoors space. If there was one suggestion, it would be to provide hand soap in bathrooms and to add closet/drawer space in the master bedroom. My husband and I have stayed in hotels and homes all over the world and this home rental experience was one of the best ones we have had. Our three elderly Nicaragua native aunts also had a great time! Overall, we had an outstanding experience and would highly recommend this property! We only wish our stay could've been extended. Thanks Normand, Eliezer and Felicita!
Hoping to return soon...

I stayed at Casa Olimar with some friends for 4 nights in April 2016 and used the home as a home base while exploring San Juan del Sur and neighboring beaches Playa Maderas and Playa Hermosa. The sunsets are incredible from the frontward and pool with an unobstructed view of the pacific horizon. The infinity pool was a lifesaver after a hot day of hiking or exploring. The location is close enough to town that you can walk or take a taxi. The houses caretaker was super friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. He was able to make recommendations for dinner, places to visit and even helped us arrange reservations and taxis for several other cities in Nicaragua. The owner was very pleasant to deal with as well and we were given very clear instructions and information well in advance of our arrival. I highly recommend staying at Casa Olimar for your visit to San Juan del Sur.
First, Nicaragua is a great surprise. You feel safe, people are pleasant, easy going and very welcoming. In general and in particular at San Juan del Sur, the food is excellent. We all felt "light", healthy. I don't know if this is herbs, quality of ingredients but this is one of the great aspect of San Juan. It is cheap (easy to eat for $5 and dring for the same), the beaches around (Hermosa, Madeiras, Mayagual) are as close to paradise as it gets.
The house is just outstanding...the view, the pool. It is spacious, well located in a gated community. Even when it is really warm, there is a gentle breeze and you can enjoy the terrace regardless of the temperature. You can hire a cook (felicita) and a chauffeur (Byron) both great people, friendly and great at what they do. You will love the place!
