Welcome to Casa De Mono (Monkey House) a secluded, relaxing, ocean view get-away in an eco-friendly community. We are 8 miles north of San Juan Del Sur - far enough from town for seclusion yet close enough to go to dinner or shopping. Our home overlooks the best beaches in Nicaragua; Playa Maderas, Playones & Playa Majagual. Walk to the beach through the private nature path and it’ll take you about 20 minutes. If you want to hit the surf quicker and don’t feel like walking, the drive is about 3-5 minutes. Casa de Mono has a wonderful ocean view and positioned for maximum privacy, you won't see or hear any neighbors. Watch amazing sunsets and listen to the waves. Wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and exotic birds.

Wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and exotic birds. After hanging out at the beach or surfing all day, have drinks or dinner on the covered outdoor dining patio. **House Details** -Private Pool - no sharing :) -Sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms, both with queen-size beds. -Fully equipped kitchen, a gas BBQ, wireless Internet, a covered patio and an cool, natural stone outdoor shower. -Solar system that warms the water and a battery back-up system that will keep the drinks in the refrigerator cold and the lights on if the local power goes out. -Living room has good size flat screen TV with 150+ movies. - Concierge is included. They will escort you to our home and give you lots of information about the area. They will help book excursions and any activity you might need. -We have maid service and 24-hour security. -Rental of a 4X4 vehicle is a must. **Where we're located** Our house is in the progressive eco-friendly community of Balcones de Majagual. About 20 minutes north of San Juan Del Sur where you can find plenty of nightlife, restaurants and shopping. Balcones de Majagual was built within a protected forest reserve and is a sister development from the creators of Morgan's Rock. We have monkeys, exotic birds, fascinating jungle creatures, sea turtles, great surf breaks, fishing, hiking, and the best sunsets. **San Juan Del Sur** San Juan del Sur is close by and you can find markets, restaurants and bars. The town is also a launch off spot for many adventures such as turtle viewing at La Flor, Volcano expeditions, Zip-line excursions, ATV rentals, Sport fishing and much more. Of course, a good meal or sampling the local Rum with family and friends while overlooking the bay is another good reason to visit San Juan Del Sur. **Wildlife** Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts will love the wide variety of beautiful birds and fascinating jungle creatures. One of our favorite things to do is to take the short trip to La Flor to see the endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles laying eggs and their hatchlings emerging from their nests and heading out to sea. There are plenty of monkeys in the trees and exotic birds that you’ll see regularly. Other wildlife in the area include Sloths, Ocelots, Marguays, Coatimundi and more… these may be more difficult to spot. **Beaches** We’re located on some of the best beaches in Nicaragua. Playa Maderas is one of Nicaragua’s best, consistent surf breaks. Majagual is a calm beach that is great for swimming. You can rent surfboards or boogie boards at the beach and can buy a snack or a cold beer. Playa Marsella is a nice beach that is a short 10 minute drive south. Surf by day or check out the restaurants. It’s a nice alternative to driving to San Juan Del Sur. More

Interaction with guests
We have an arrangement with ReMax in San Juan Del Sur. The ladies speak English & Spanish, they will take you to our house, they'll show you where the grocery store is, they'll book fun excursions for you and will be available by phone or email throughout your entire stay. They are super nice and helpful! Note: Upon full payment, Trip Advisor will provide me with your contact information. At this time, I introduce guests to our concierge so that meeting time and other services can be provided.

I just returned from a week at Casa de Mono with my husband & 2 kids (5 & 8). It was a perfect vacation & I couldn't think of a better spot. We spent the first night in Granada, which was great because we were...More

Hi Pamela, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Sounds so fun and glad you were able to check out the surf and do the catamaran trip! It's lovely to check out the Nicaraguan coast from the ocean. Thanks so much for the review,...More

About the neighbourhood
Being 8 miles north of San Juan Del Sur offers peace & quiet and a true jungle experience. Yet, we're still close enough to enjoy the restaurants and nightlife. The local beaches near our house are beautiful! They're never over crowded :).
Getting around
A 4x4 is a must as many of the roads can be a little rough, it's all part of the adventure
