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.

Why George Cooper chose San Juan del Sur

Located on a hill top near to the Pelican Eyes Hotel and Resort, Estancia de Cooper and Vista Paraiso has magnificent unique views of San Juan del Sur bay and the Palermo valley.

Estancia de Cooper was carefully planned and designed in order to take advantage of the amazing views from each area of the house. This vacation home has 3 individual units, 4 bedrooms, 2 living areas and 7 bathrooms along with 2 private swimming pools and plenty of outdoor space. Prices shown are for four guests, two bedroom usage.

Estancia de Cooper is a luxurious and exclusive local to call home while visiting San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Beautiful location for romantic anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

As a 30th anniversary getaway, Casita Romanitica was perfect. The bedroom and 2 bathrooms are very spacious and the unit is well equipped. We brought 12 bottles of wine (max allowed by customs) and put it all to good use. The private pool was perfect for us to spend a day doing nothing. Exploring the town was fun - unique shops, loved Simon Says for lunch, bought fresh bread, fruit, and veggies at the Mercado, and fresh fish (filleted as we watched) from the docks, and barbecued most nights on the Romantica deck while enjoying the spectacular sunsets. We took a class at the Choco school in town making our own chocolate –definitely a fun activity, and learned a lot about my favorite food. Yes, it is rainy season, but the views from the house of mountains and valley are amazing with a million shades of green. A hurricane hit the east coast the last few days of our adventure, but after dealing with Irma in Florida, this was easy. The clay packed roads got extremely muddy and we learned it is imperative to have a 4-wheel drive. Most of the main roads are paved, but getting into the mountains was a feat. We tried driving north on the Chocolate Highway, but gave up after 30 minutes. Everywhere we went, the Nicas are wonderful people. Even though we don’t speak Spanish they would always go out of their way to help and we felt very welcome in their country. Gabriel, the Cooper caretaker met us when we pulled in, and was on site every day to answer any questions. He even gave us a tour of the other Cooper units that were empty at the time and it is obvious Casa Cooper is highly maintained. The rest of the Pelican Eyes campus is sprawling and we took advantage of double massages at the spa and a very romantic dinner at the main restaurant overlooking the pool and ocean. Casita Romantica exceeded expectations and we highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Sandra and I are very happy you made good use of your wine supply :-) We are also happy you enjoyed our little piece of paradise in San Juan del Sur. Casita Romantica is a great romantic place to stay. As you mentioned, the pool is an added feature. Romantica is our favorite for 2 people. In fact, we stay in the Villa when we are in town. Gabriel said you guys were great. We have always been impressed with the Nicaragua people as to how friendly and helpful they are since our arrival in 2004. As you mentioned, they do go out of their way to help regardless of the language difference. The storm in the area is being taken care of. As you mentioned, all was fine at Casa de Cooper. We are fortunate enough to be on the top of the hill. We are glad you had a great time. Look forward to your continued return. Sandra and George Cooper

Great location, close to town but not too close. Perfectly named Casita Romantica as it is a great spot for a couple! Beautiful place with amazing views! Some construction going on around and in the resort but nothing too disturbing or distracting. The pool is great as are the pools in the resort. We were the only ones in Casa De Cooper so it was nice and private. George was great with his communication and information prior to arrival. Highly recommend this place!

Stunning views and house was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home for the month of February. The pictures don't actually do the property justice - this casa we called our "pimped out Flintstone house" with all of the concrete, it was everything and more than we needed. We enjoyed the walk into town and back everyday to get our fresh baked bread and inexpensive fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. The BBQ was a perfect touch for grilling our fresh chicken and veggies. Gabriel (Property Manager) and housecleaning staff were top notch. They struck a perfect balance of respecting our privacy and making sure we were not for want. Sandra and George were a pleasure to deal with and we had no concerns about the rental process, any question(s) we had, were always answered quickly.

Our private pool was well used and much enjoyed. We even came to love the sounds of Noah's Ark living down below the hillside.

We like to be good guests (energy conscious) and had made a pact not to use the AC the month that we were there . . . although it was scorching hot some days, because of the plentiful screened windows and many ceiling fans, we did just fine without A/C!

We have travelled the world and this place is definitely one of our faves - we will be back! Kim & Jim

Wonderful home & excellent staff

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Romantica for 5 nights and we loved it. The view and the sunsets are amazing! We were walking distant to San Juan Del Sur and if we didn't feel like walking it was easy to get a taxi or have the resort pick us up for a small fee. The house was in excellent condition and kept very clean. We had everything we needed during our stay. We were hoping to stay again on our next visit in November but it is already book. Our loss. We will definetly stay here again.

Thank you to the Cooper family for sharing their beautiful home with us.

10 stars if I could rate it that way!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year staying at the Casita Romantica. Let me tell you there is no mistake this is heaven on earth. Everything you see in the pictures is that and then some. But to make things even more spectacular the quality of service you get from George and his constituents ia BAR NONE!!! We used the car service George provides from the airport to SJDS and back to Masaya and even that was outstanding. Quality cars great A/C and If you use them as for Evertz as your driver! As you can see I can't say enough great things about this place!

Do not pass go... If you are in the fence this is your house!

Amazing Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Casita Romantica for 6 nights when we were in San Juan. The place was even better then the pictures. Very clean, and the views were breathtaking, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Gabriel the property manager was very accommodating and provided us with transportation/taxi into town when needed. Great spot to get away from the bustle of the town but close enough to town as well. Highly recommend this place!!

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 (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 hills 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- we can assist with booking. ******

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.
