Overview

About the property

Breathtaking View, Private Pool, 2nd Floor Condo with 2 beds and 2 baths

Imagine... sitting on the balcony looking out at the amazing bay of SJDS, sipping on your free Tona beer. Have your laptop if needed we have free high speed wifi. Then take a dip in your private swimming pool that looks out at the bay. Turn on the AC at night and sleep in our hand picked bed that is soft and comfortable. Take a short stroll into town and enjoy all the SJDS has to offer. Safe and quiet too.

Disclosure: Property is on a hill and the walk up can be tiresome. The property is secured with a banister and cables but it is not kid friendly. Condo development near by. The price is already discounted accordingly for the construction.

About Chris Amatore

Born and raised in Chicago IL USA. I am a Fire Fighter and a builder in Chicago. I was on a family vacation in Nica and we stopped in SJDS, only planned on staying 2 nights but we fell in love with it and stayed the rest of our trip. San Juan has the best views I have ever seen and only few luxury places to stay. So we decided to invest in San Juan and have a vacation home for ourselves and rental for others. I tried to think of everything to make your stay amazing. We have an office in town as well so any issues or questions we are at your disposal. Or if you just want to stop in and meet the team you are welcome. A little more about myself: I went to Marquette University in Milwaukee WI, I knew my Wife when I was 5 years old... so life long friend turned into my wife. I want you to love SJDS as much as I do, so I have created an amazing place for you to stay and make memories for a life time.

Chris Amatore purchased this condo in 2015

Why Chris Amatore chose San Juan del Sur

Views great, quality of construction not so much

  • 3 of 5

This place is a mixed bag. First the good. The staff on site are great. Maid did laundry for free. Juan the maintenance guy was great. As noted by others, the water pressure and water heat were great (although we actually had zero water all of one evening) - The owner and investment, not so much. Communication with the owner was a total waste of my time (but once connected with the local manager on What's App - he was great).

Very cheap building materials were used and construction quality is poor. The place has no furniture and is the least equipped kitchen we have ever had in a rental. The staff had to run out to get a spatula so we cook eggs. There are literally only a couple of utensils and glasses. The kitchen table is so cheap, it is going to break on someone, and they just might get hurt. We were only there 2 minutes when a screen blew right out of a window.

Be aware also. There are not just 2 - but THREE units here and sharing the tiny pool. When we were there they had 8 people (including kids) sharing the third unit alone (which I was unaware even existed). The construction immediately adjacent (which I was told should be done for our trip) is not even close to being done. There are building 4 units -not even "weathered-in" at end of March. We were on second floor - and workers 1st thing in the morning could just look right in our unit. Note also the spiral staircase is a bit challenging, and gets VERY hot. Juan was great and trucked our heavy bags up and down it. Down without even being asked - he just saw we were ready to go and ran up and got them. And the comments that note that the hill is steep. Picture the steepest hill you can imagine on a paved road - and double that. My wife and I are very fit, walk and hike a ton, and were amazed by that hill. Have to stop every 20 feet after a bit, and are sweating wet by getting back to the place. We went down 3 times and up 2 - on foot. Barking dog(s) woke us up one night - pretty sure it was instigated by the (otherwise cute) dog living on site.

We looked at real estate - and saw one - single - rental property up the hill for not much more with a (VERY) private pool. I would have booked that one if I had known about it.

High on steep hill - nice view

  • 3 of 5

To get to property you drive through town, through the bario and straight up a steep hill. Not for nervous drivers.

Property was clean and simply furnished.

Construction immediately below could limit future view.

Enjoyed the pool.

Great

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean with great views, wonderful bird watching. Bring some ear plugs as the frogs are loud, but I can't complain about wild life.

The care taker was very attentive. He even offered to get a doctor when my husband was sick.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend with family. The property is clean and has everything you need. The best part is the perfect view of the bay. Just a few blocks from San Juan action but far enough to feel in your own paradise.Don Juan was always there for help. Osa is a cute and friendly little dog.

Spectacular surfing beaches to the north and south, this is the perfect location. Walk to town and still have a private condo to stay at. Disclosure: Condo development near by.
