Casa Mariposa is a unique beachfront eco-villa located on a secluded cove, a five-minute drive from the center of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Custom designed for the site by Arq. Luis Guzmán of Grupo Mosaico and built by Stemonsa, Casa Mariposa represents the best of the new wave of Nicaraguan design creativity, combined with top-notch traditional hand craftsmanship. Beach stones and local hardwoods have been utilized extensively in the home. Designed for livability and harmony with the site, only three right angles can be found in the sensuously curved layout, with emphasis on openness and outdoor living spaces. This is one of the most charming and intimate house in San Juan del Sur.
The house has a master bedroom with king-sized bed and attached bath, guest bedroom with queen-sized bed, there is a third room that could use as an office/bedroom and a fourth bedroom upstairs with bunk beds for four, sharing a bath with the guest bedroom. All bedrooms have ocean views ( except the office space); the master and guest bedrooms feature extra-wide French doors opening onto semi-private oceanfront patios.
This is a true beachfront property, looking directly over a small cove with impressive rock formations, the most prominent of which is the striking “Gorilla Head”. A short path leads from the house to a curved beach of multicolored pebbles. There is a small white sand beach over some rocks at the far end of the pebble beach, and the better known Peña Rota beach, a seven-minute walk from the house, across a small isthmus. The setting is simply beautiful. Both beaches have fine snorkeling; Peña Rota has a seasonal reef break for experienced surfers. At Casa Mariposa, you will be in a verdant natural environment, with parrots and other birdlife, occasional howler monkey calls, and whale sightings in winter months. Tide pools in your front yard make for hours of exploring by kids and the young at heart. Although San Juan del Sur, with its many excellent restaurants, clubs, and activities, is only a five-minute drive away, you will enjoy complete seclusion and communion with nature.
Powered by solar panels with a battery bank and a generator for backup, Casa Mariposa is completely off the grid. Ceiling and table fans, as well as abundant hot water, are provided for your comfort. The kitchen comes fully equipped with cookware. Mattresses, sheets, towels, and pillows are all top quality. An eight-foot deep pool, along with an outdoor shower, provides refreshment. A walled garden behind the house gives respite from the late afternoon sun.
