About Sagrario Chamorro Argeñal

My name is Sagrario Chamorro. I went to school(Saint Bonaventure University) in New York state, and graduated from Sociology in 1992. Now days, I am a painter; I did a Certificate in Painting at New York Studio School (2012).

I have my studio in Managua and I am the administrator of the house in the beach...all my family lives in Managua, we are 3 brothers two sisters an 16 nephews; and we all love our house in the San Juan del Sur.

Sagrario Chamorro Argeñal purchased this house in 1940

Why Sagrario Chamorro Argeñal chose San Juan del Sur

My family has own "Casa San Juan" since 1930 when my great grand mother, Isabel Cardenal, acquired the house. We use to spend the whole summer in San Juan del Sur and it is the place were I must belong. My father, Jaime Chamorro, inherit the house from my grand mother, and we decide, in order to keep it in shape, it should become a vacation rental home.

What makes this house unique

Our house at San Juan del Sur, Casa san Juan, is a very unique property; an antique well preserved with all the original furniture of 1940(art decor); the same pictures, dinning room, canapes, rocking chairs, my grand mother's toilet chair, and the old wood stove as a remembrance(museum piece), which we still use when I was young.

Casa San Juan is located in the down town area, very close to the beach and to restaurants and bars of many nationalities: india, italian, mexican, japanes, vegan, gourmet, etc. or anything you would need: farmacy, church, hard ware store, laundry, clothing shops, tours to every beach, bakery, fish market, food market, spanish lessons, art craft shops, coffee shops. The house has a beautiful garden with shadow trees and it has a very good position in which the air is always going through.

Magnifique maison calme et pleine de charme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés 4 jours à San Juan Del Sur entre amis pour terminer nos vacances au Nicaragua. La maison est vaste et très chaleureuse, pleine de recoins propices à la tranquillité. Une vraie maison de famille où on se sent vite comme chez soi! très confortable et très bien entretenue, et la piscine est très appréciable.

Idéalement située prés de la plage, dans le centre, mais la rue est trés calme, tout se fait à pied, restaurants, marchés, criée...Pour les plages océanes, la voiture est garée dans le jardin.

La propriétaire, qui nous a accueillis, a été très disponible et attentionnée pendant la préparation du voyage et une fois sur place.

Lucia, la gardienne et gouvernante de la maison, est discrète et excellente cuisinière! nos meilleurs repas de poisson au Nicaragua, choisis avec elle à la criée.

Bref un moment privilégié dans une maison où on retournerait avec plaisir!

2 weeks stay in this perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

I warmly recommend this house for groups staying in SJS. The wooden house is a treasure of history from the colonial times with a pool and garden to relax. We felt there at home! The housekeeper, Lucia, is extremely nice and one of the best cooks of Nicaragua! It is also far cheaper to eat their home cooked meals than going at a restaurant.

The house is clean and the beds quite comfortable. There is air conditioning.

Thank you all for this perfect stay, we'll come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Ralph and Benjamin! Eventhough the house is big,(8 bedrooms) and you were a group of 12 guests you could feel at home! I am so glad and I think you are absolutly right about that. It is great space for medium size groups, and Lucia is always so helpful and nice, AND Good Cook! I always try to tell people how well she cooks;) I also wanted to tell you that you were a great guest. I felt you apreciate our effort to make things happen, to make things easy and make sure you are enjoying your stay. And again, muchas gracias! Sagrario Chamorro A.

Excellent location for large groups!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 23, a school group of 21 students and 2 adults. We were warmly received by Lucia and her sister Maria de Jesus, longtime family housekeepers and amazing cooks. We did the meal planning together and asked them what they liked to cook. We then we went shopping at the Poli supermercardo with a list they had prepared in a taxi ($2.00). We returned with the groceries and they did all the meal prep, cooking and the clean up (we all pitched in with dishes and sweeping and the help was much appreciated) for three days. We woke each morning to a delicious breakfast ready to eat. I asked them what they like to cook and we had amazing Nica food (Pinto gallo, pollo al ajillo, ensalada, pescado frito) for dinners and wonderful, cheerful hosts, (Spanish very helpful).

The house is unbelievably cozy with wide wood-planked floors, comfy rockers and hammocks throughout, right in the center of San Juan with plenty of amenities right out the front door. We also met the owner and his daughter/property manager, who made certain our visit was comfortable and enjoyable. The house is not necessarily luxurious, but full of charm, historical character and coziness, like the large family beach getaway that is. You cannot beat the location. I cannot wait to return next year. Highly recommended!

There is a lot you can do because in terms of beaches, we have at least 12 different bays and each one has its own beauty. As for example La Flor, is a National Park Turtle Reservoir, where you can go at night and they give you a tour to watch the turtles put there eggs.There is a farm where you can go Canopy and horse riding. And there is a beach that is excellent for water surfing; you can take surfing classes.
