The space
Looking for something a little different? Something a little exotic, a little adventurous, but still with that certain amount of luxury? Welcome to Casa Selva, The Jungle House.

Set in the progressive, boutique community of Balcones de Majagual, Casa Selva is open air design and living at it’s finest. Located 12km from the lovely town of San Juan del Sur, Casa Selva is set in the treetops and represents some of the most luxurious, progressively ecologically friendly accommodations in San juan del Sur. This private villa is perched on a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean, allowing for both stunning water and jungle views . Enjoy daily visits from the communities local troop of friendly howler monkeys, and in the winter months watch humpback whale breaching from the front deck as they are arriving in the warm waters of the Nicaraguan Pacific to nurse their young.. Being nestled in one of Central America’s largest private wildlife corridors, sightings of sloths, parakeets, iguanas, margays and hummingbirds are common occurrences for guests at Casa Selva.

Casa Selva is more than a rental unit, it is in fact, us, the owners, part time home. As a result, we ensure it is always well stocked and maintained, and lacks that cold, rental space feeling. Above all, Casa Selva is our home, and we are delighted to share it with you in our absence.

Casa Selva is a 2 bedroom, 2 1/4 bathroom home boosting high ceilings, cool polished concrete floors, and a state of the art screen system that allows for fresh air to flow through the home constantly. Both large bedrooms contain beautiful stone, en-suite bathrooms, large storage spaces, and views of either the ocean or jungle. In keeping with our eco-consciousness, the piping hot water in both bathrooms is heated by the sun with our solar hot water system. Both bedrooms rooms are well appointed with fine linens, pillows and comfortable beds.

Attention to detail such as large Japanese style sliding doors, unique wood work (all obtained from hurricane felled trees and sustainable timber) stone accents, local art and decor give the home a serene and peaceful feel, perfect for relaxation, honeymoons, or a place to rest after a long day of surfing. Casa Selva provides you with the essential modern conveniences such Wi-fi available in the home and on the grounds, flat screen tv, dvd, video library and comfortable furniture. Boundaries between indoors and outdoors blend when sliding walls in the living room open to a large patio with ocean and jungle views.

A comfortable work space with desk is provided for your use, making working from the home easy and stress free. Our brand new battery-backup system provides silent power for the house even during Nicaragua's frequent, brief power outages, allowing you to work uninterrupted during these times.

As devoted foodies, the we make sure the kitchen is stocked with everything one would need to make a gourmet meal. Gas range, pots, pans, hand mixer, magic bullet, spices, large bowls, and dishes and cutlery for eight people. A coffee maker, french press, stove top espresso maker and coffee grinder allow you to enjoy your cup of world class Nicaraguan coffee whatever way you prefer. A traditional north american style propane BBQ and a charcoal one are available for your use, as well as all the necessary BBQ equipment.

Located just outside the home is the incredible 15 meter infinity pool boasting views of the jungle and ocean. The pool is shared amongst five homes, but rarely do you find yourself sharing it with others. This is the perfect place to watch the sunset over the pacific in the cool, comfortable pool waters. Chairs are provided for your use, and this is an excellent spot to simply relax, read a book, and just be.

Casa Selva 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. Our host can help you arrange a variety of activities in the area including zip ling, horse back riding, boat cruises, surf lessons, professional onsite massages, and spanish lessons.

We are located 12km from town on country dirt roads, and seeing as though the house is perched on a hill from the main road a 4WD vehicle will make your stay not only easier, but more fun as you enjoy these beautiful country roads.

¿Buscando algo un poco diferente? ¿Algo un poco exótico, un poco aventurero, pero aún con esa cierta cantidad de lujo? Bienvenido a Casa Selva, The Jungle House.

Ubicada en la progresiva comunidad boutique de Balcones de Majagual, Casa Selva tiene un diseño al aire libre y vive en su máxima expresión. Ubicada a 12 km de la encantadora ciudad de San Juan del Sur, Casa Selva se encuentra en las copas de los árboles y representa algunos de los alojamientos más lujosos y progresivamente ecológicos en San juan del Sur. Esta villa privada se alza sobre una cresta con vistas al Océano Pacífico, lo que permite vistas impresionantes del agua y la selva. Disfrute de las visitas diarias de la comunidad local de monos aulladores amistosos, y en los meses de invierno, observe cómo las ballenas jorobadas se escapan desde la cubierta delantera mientras llegan a las cálidas aguas del Pacífico nicaragüense para cuidar a sus crías. Los corredores privados de vida silvestre más grandes de Estados Unidos, avistamientos de perezosos, periquitos, iguanas, margays y colibríes son eventos comunes para los huéspedes de Casa Selva.

Casa Selva es más que una unidad de alquiler, de hecho, somos nosotros, los propietarios, hogar a tiempo parcial. Como resultado, nos aseguramos de que siempre esté bien abastecido y mantenido, y carezca de esa sensación de espacio frío y de alquiler. Sobre todo, Casa Selva es nuestro hogar, y estamos encantados de compartirlo con usted en nuestra ausencia.

Casa Selva es una casa de 2 dormitorios y 2 1/4 baños con techos altos, pisos de concreto pulido fresco y un sistema de pantalla de última generación que permite que el aire fresco fluya a través de la casa constantemente. Ambas habitaciones grandes contienen hermosas piedras, baños en suite, grandes espacios de almacenamiento y vistas al océano o la jungla. De acuerdo con nuestra conciencia ecológica, el agua caliente de la tubería en ambos baños es calentada por el sol con nuestro sistema solar de agua caliente. Ambas habitaciones están bien equipadas con sábanas finas, almohadas y camas cómodas.

La atención a los detalles, como las grandes puertas correderas de estilo japonés, el trabajo de madera único (todo obtenido de árboles talados por huracanes y madera sostenible), los acentos de piedra, el arte local y la decoración le dan a la casa una sensación serena y pacífica, perfecta para relajarse, lunas de miel o un lugar descansar después de un largo día de surf. Casa Selva le brinda las comodidades modernas esenciales, como Wi-Fi disponible en el hogar y en los terrenos, televisión de pantalla plana, DVD, videoteca y muebles cómodos. Los límites entre el interior y el exterior se mezclan cuando las paredes deslizantes de la sala de estar se abren a un gran patio con vistas al océano y a la jungla.

Se proporciona un espacio de trabajo cómodo con escritorio para su uso, lo que hace que trabajar desde el hogar sea fácil y sin estrés. Nuestro nuevo sistema de batería de respaldo proporciona energía silenciosa para la casa, incluso durante los cortes de energía breves y frecuentes de Nicaragua, lo que le permite trabajar sin interrupciones durante estos tiempos.

Como amantes de la comida, nos aseguramos de que la cocina esté equipada con todo lo que uno necesita para preparar una comida gourmet. Cocina a gas, ollas, sartenes, batidora manual, bala mágica, especias, cuencos grandes y platos y cubiertos para ocho personas. Una cafetera, una prensa francesa, una máquina de café exprés y un molinillo de café le permiten disfrutar de su taza de café nicaragüense de clase mundial como prefiera. Una barbacoa de propano tradicional de estilo norteamericano y una de carbón están disponibles para su uso, así como todo el equipo de barbacoa necesario.

Ubicada a las afueras de la casa se encuentra la increíble piscina infinita de 15 metros con vistas a la selva y al océano. La piscina se comparte entre cinco hogares, pero rara vez se encuentra compartiéndola con otros. Este es el lugar perfecto para ver la puesta de sol sobre el Pacífico en las frescas y cómodas aguas de la piscina. Se proporcionan sillas para su uso, y este es un excelente lugar para simplemente relajarse, leer un libro y simplemente estar.

Casa Selva se encuentra a 15 minutos a pie o 5 minutos en coche por la carretera privada a algunas de las mejores playas del sur de Nicaragua, Playa Maderas, Playa Majagual y Playones. Hay alquileres de tablas de surf y una pequeña selección de cafés para que su día en la playa sea cómodo y agradable.

San Juan del Sur, Rivas, Nicaragua

One of the best parts of staying at Casa Selva is the quiet that allows you to enjoy the sounds of the jungle. On days when the breezes are gentle you can hear the ocean crashing. Every day you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee with the parakeets singing and the Mono Congo monkey's hanging in the trees around the house. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets singing outside the house. Unlike many of the homes in and around San Juan Del Sur, Casa Selva is unique in its setting. Perched on a ridge, the home is located in a private boutique community, containing 11 homes on roughly 100 acres stretching from the jungle to the ocean. There is enough space between homes to enjoy complete privacy without feeling alone or isolated. The lack of light pollution allows you to swim in the pool on clear nights by moonlight, something not to be missed. We provide 24 hour on site security, cleaning service and management without being intrusive. We are also an ecologic conscious community. What does this mean? We do not believe in spraying heavy pesticides like local hotels do to control bugs, what this does mean is you may encounter a few critters in and around the house, but we are not poisoning the food chain from the bottom up. All of our actions have far reaching consequences, and we want monkeys and parrots to visit the home. We heat our water with solar heat (and there is no lack of that!) and all our furniture and wood in the home is reclaimed fallen hardwoods, ethically sourced in north east Nicaragua. Besides the obvious benefit of living in a tree house, you are right at the beaches, right near the surf, and not in town so the only noise you hear is that of the jungle!
Una de las mejores partes de alojarse en Casa Selva es la tranquilidad que le permite disfrutar de los sonidos de la jungla. En los días en que la brisa es suave, se puede escuchar el océano rompiendo. Todos los días puedes sentarte y disfrutar de tu café matutino con los periquitos cantando y el mono Mono Congo colgando de los árboles alrededor de la casa. Quedarse dormido con el sonido de los grillos cantando fuera de la casa. A diferencia de muchas de las casas en San Juan del Sur y sus alrededores, Casa Selva es única en su entorno. Encaramado en una cresta, la casa se encuentra en una comunidad boutique privada, que contiene 11 casas en aproximadamente 100 acres que se extienden desde la selva hasta el océano. Hay suficiente espacio entre las casas para disfrutar de total privacidad sin sentirse solo o aislado. La falta de contaminación lumínica le permite nadar en la piscina en noches despejadas a la luz de la luna, algo que no debe perderse. Brindamos seguridad en el lugar las 24 horas, servicio de limpieza y administración sin ser intrusivos. También somos una comunidad ecológica consciente. ¿Qué significa esto? No creemos en rociar pesticidas pesados ​​como lo hacen los hoteles locales para controlar los insectos, lo que esto significa es que puede encontrar algunas criaturas en y alrededor de la casa, pero no estamos envenenando la cadena alimentaria de abajo hacia arriba. Todas nuestras acciones tienen consecuencias de largo alcance, y queremos que monos y loros visiten la casa. Calentamos nuestra agua con calor solar (¡y no hay falta de eso!) Y todos nuestros muebles y madera en el hogar son maderas duras caídas recuperadas, de origen ético en el noreste de Nicaragua. Además del beneficio obvio de vivir en una casa en el árbol, estás justo en las playas, cerca de las olas y no en la ciudad, ¡así que el único ruido que escuchas es el de la jungla!
