Casa Francesca is a stunning newly built villa located in the progressive, boutique community of Balcones de Majagual. Designed and built by the same architect who designed Morgans Rock Eco-Lodge (Matthew Faulkner) Casa Francesca is a stunning home mixing both modern luxuries and natural, sustainable organic elements.

Located 12km north of the lovely village of San Juan del Sur Nicaragua, this private villa boasts unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean from every part of the home. The incredible 15meter infinity pool overlooks the ocean and is the perfect spot to watch one of Nicaragua's incredible sunsets. It is also the perfect spot to watch humpback whales breaching in the ocean as they arrive in the warm waters off the coast of Nicaragua to nurse their young.

Casa Francesca also benefits from its location in one of Central Americas largest private wildlife corridors. Expect daily visits from the local friendly monkey troop, along with sightings of parakeets, maragays, sloths and a variety of other wildlife.

High ceilings, cool white washed stucco walls, and stone floors give Casa Francesa a large, open airy feel. The large screened windows allow for the almost constant breeze that the home benefits from to flow unobstructed through the home, keeping the temperature comfortable both day and night. Gorgeous wooden furniture, stone and rock elements, incredible paintings and blue decor are the final touches in this unique villa, lending to it a soft and natural feel.

This three bedroom 2 1/4 bathroom home is able to sleep five to six people comfortably. The two large bedrooms in the main part of the home each contain full ensuite bathrooms, comfortable king sized beds and ocean views. The third bedroom is located in the designated office space (located right at the pool, you can step right out of the office and plunge into the water) and contains a large, comfortable futon that can easily be converted to sleep one to two people. The room also contains a spacious bathroom. This is also the perfect space in which to work while away from home, and the excellent wifi signal located in the community makes this fully possible.

The living, dining, and kitchen space all have spectacular ocean views, and are surrounded by large Japanese style sliding doors that you can open for uninterrupted ocean. They are also all located within steps of the 15meters, stunning blue, infinity pool so you can take a refreshing dip whenever you so choose! Modern conveniences such as a Smeg gas range, stainless steel appliances, and a fully stocked kitchen make cooking that fresh seafood you bought from the local fisherman on the beach a breeze. Enjoy your meal inside at the large stone counter top/breakfast bar, or outside in the shaded patio at the large dining space. The airy, comfortable living space seats 6 plus people comfortable and is a great space to enjoy music and play any of the games provided in the evening after the sunsets.

CasaFrancesca is located either a short 15 minute walk or short 5 minute drive down the private road to some of the finest beaches in southern Nicaragua, Playa Maderas, Playa Majagual and Playones. There are surf board rentals, and a small selection of cafes to make your day at the beach both comfortable and enjoyable.

An English and Spanish speaking “meet and greet” is included in the cost of rental. This home also enjoys the benefits of secure private parking and 24 hour security in a locked, gated community. Maid and pool service is included, laundry service on request.

The Rivas Department region

San Juan del Sur is blessed with sunshine, warm weather and excellent water temperatures. Dry season runs from November until April, with progressively hotter days. Rainy season begins in May, with the start of occasional rains, with rain almost daily in October. By November, its back to beautiful and hot but you may have the odd day or night of rain. The sea is swimmable all year round without the need for wet suits. The coldest being around January at 20°C. Air temperature is usually around 32°C.

Contrary to popular belief Nicaragua is one of the safest central/south American countries to visit. It is also one of the poorest. The people are very friendly and you shouldn't be scared of picking up hitch hikers on route along carreterra chocolata to San Juan del Sur.

Further afield from Rivas there are many wonderful sites such as the Island of Ometepe (now listed as one of the must see places around the world), The cloud forest volcano Mombacho, and the active volcano at Masaya. Leon (twinned with Oxford) is a university city with interesting fresco paintings marking historical events.
