Casa Francesca - lovingly named for the daughter of the owner -boasts unparalleled views from it's position in Balcones de Majagual of the Pacific Ocean from every part of the home, pool and property. The incredible 15 meter 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.
High ceilings, cool white washed stucco walls, and stone floors give Casa Francesca 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. Slide open the doors on the main building and blur the line between inside and out. 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 en suite 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 15 meters, 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.

"We just returned from a week at Casa Francesca and it was so amazing! The house is exactly as explained in the description. In our opinion it was the best of SJDS. The house is situated 20 min up a dirt road from SJDS, in the jungle, with an awesome pool and view of the Pacific Ocean. The beach is a quick 5 minute drive with some great little taco huts on the beach. The best part of each day involved the monkeys. Yes, they did wake us up at 6am but it's the jungle and it was amazing. They hung out in the trees during the morning, eating their breakfast before moving along. It was super easy to check-in. N Things we did: Adam the chef made us an insane dinner at the house, we took surf lessons from Ibrahim at Coconut Surf, we went on a day tour with Francisco to zip line in Mombacho, a coffee farm, to see the crater lake, to the Masaya Market and Grenada, we went out on a day boating trip with Nica Sail and Surf and we booked massages at the house using the assistance of the meet and greet team!. Things to know: You must have a 4x4, Buy liquor at the Managua airport, You are in the jungle so you will see insects/spiders and we hear scorpions (we didn't see any). We drove from MGA to SJDS - the directions were great. We did get lost on the way back to MGA - if you aren't super adventurous - hire a driver. Overall, an amazing house in an amazing country. We had a great time" Jaime, January 2017
