Wonderful, Wonderful A Great Place for Vacation We rented Casa de Cooper and really enjoyed our stay. The house was exactly like the pictures showed. In fact, the house was even greater than what the pictures showed. We really like the nice soft sheets on the beds and the comfortable beds. The towels were a heavy cotton style and was great to use after our hot shower. We had fresh towels every day and believe it or not, hot water! The house was everything we wished for and more. The sunsets from our private patio were unbelievable as was the service the staff showed us. We walked from the house to town most every day while staying at Casa de Cooper's Vista Paraiso. It is really a few from Paradise. We loved the outdoor cooking on the gas grill. The kitchen was well equipped with most every appliance a chef would need. It was so nice that we seldom need air-conditioning as the light breeze was refreshing. We really enjoyed the privacy we had and the great Jacques pool. The pool was located next the Master Bedroom and felt so private. Talking about the Master Bedroom, there was a double shower and double sinks that help make our stay one that would not be forgotten. The other bedrooms fit our family to a tee with the double queen beds. There was a private balcony for each of the bedrooms and a view from every place in the house. In fact, all the bedrooms had private entrances so each of our family could come and go when they wanted without disturbing others. The house was outstanding, clean and well appointed. The maid service was outstanding. In fact, we even had room service from the main resort which filled an end to a wonderful day of adventures from the zip ride and horseback riding. The food in town was excellent and very affordable. Having cocktails in Jacques was soooo relaxing after a day at the beach. Would we return? You bet we will. In fact, we look forward to our next vacation at Casa de Cooper. Nicaragua is filled with exciting places to visit. We were only able to visit a small amount of the area because of so many activities and things to do while on this Vacation. If a person is looking for a private getaway and still wanting to be close to town, this is the place to be. The Cooper's were great host. We were fortunate to meet them and get a list of all the places and activities in the area. Looking forward to returning on our next vacation.

We had a really good time at Casa De Cooper. The house is one house on the perimeter of a larger resort (Pelican Eyes) which is independently run by Mr. Cooper, who lives in the bottom of the 3 unit building. He was very accomodating, let us have our privacy, but was there to answer any questions if we had them. Not the greatest place if you are trying to go insane and party (we were partying at a medium level which was fine). Great experience overall.

I was lucky enough to visit Casa de Cooper in February and in March. When came in February, we had 8 people in our group and rented 3 bedrooms. 7000sq ft of living space. The second time we only needed 2 bedrooms. Very accommodating place to stay. The views were amazing from morning until sun down. The casa was extremely well appointed and luxurious. I'm very particular about nice sheets. The sheets were so soft I didn't want to get out of them. As you can see by the pictures, it's a beautiful place. It's more impressive in person. We drove down from Managua, where my daughter and grandchildren live and work, to enjoy this wonderful time together. George and Sandra were wonderful hosts. They were extremely helpful in giving information on things to do, groceries, restaurants, etc. My grandson, who is 11 and living in Managua, said he'd rate the place 5 stars because of how much fun he had, and that George was a really nice guy. Thanks so much, George and Sandra, for making us feel like we were coming home!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How Did You and Sandra Decide to Build in Nicaragua?
A: In 2006 we visited friends in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. We immediately fell in love with Nicaragua and this small fishing village.

We purchased this property as a retirement and vacation home after a 1 week visit to San Juan del Sur. It started as a 1 bedroom house and grew to a 3 bedroom house and a 1 bed room unit that is used as a honeymoon suite. We only rent 2 of the bedrooms. The third bedroom was a private suite reserved for our family. We have now converted this suite to serve as the Master Bedroom. We have 2 private pools and large private patios. We hope you will find Casa de Cooper as inviting as we have since 2006.
