- Hello and welcome to Casa Sueños. Here is a quick "how to" use our house: The house is managed by Harry and his crew at San Juan del Sur Property management. They will check you in and check you out. Their office is located right beside the cigar shop just down the road from the Uno Gas Station. Harry's personal cell phone number is 8685 0501 and his e-mail address is email@example.com. If you should need anything relating to the house then I would suggest contacting him first. He is very prompt to reply and takes excellent care of the house. If for some reason he can't be reached or isn't responding then reach out to me. If you are for any reason unhappy about anything after you check-in then please contact Harry immediately. The house is fully stocked with enough eating utensils/plates/bowls for as many as 9 guests. There are 4 dining chairs, and 4 patio chairs that can be pushed around the table to accommodate larger groups. The cooking utensils are all brand new and top of the line as well. The stove runs on propane & the propane tank is located behind the house. If the propane should run out during your stay then call Harry and he will come up and change it out immediately. We just switched internet suppliers and the new wifi works great! Login: Casa Sueños Password: suenos2017 There is unlimited usage so go ahead and watch Netflix movies at night if you are so inclined! There is a security system installed on the house and I suggest to all of my clients to use it when they vacate the house. It works amazingly, and if it get's tripped then there will be armed guards at the house within 2 minutes. It works exactly like your car alarm. There is a key FOB that has 2 buttons on it one arms the system and the other disarms it. Under the stairs to the loft is a "panic" button that essentially trips the alarm. Only push this when you feel you are in danger, or if someone has gotten seriously hurt. When I say these guys are at the house in 2 minutes I am not exaggerating...I accidentally tripped the alarm while I was leaving the house and the guards were in the driveway behind me before I could back out. Under the cabinet to the left of the kitchen sink there is a hotel safe. It can be armed with any card (bank card/credit card) that has a magnetic stripe...or alternatively you can enter a 3-6 digit code followed by the "#" to lock it, and then when you return simply enter the same 3-6 digit code and it will open. You need to use the "#" to lock it and set the pass code every time you use the safe. Make sure to leave the safe unlocked when you leave so the next guests can use it. If for some reason you forget your code, or can't open the safe for whatever reason then please contact Harry and he will return with the master key to open it for you. If you fill the hotel safe under the sink, there is another safe under the sink in the master bathroom. This is a key only safe, and isn't quite as easy to use...the lock is a bit hard to turn and requires a bit of shaking of the key to get it to lock/unlock. It does work, but it's not ideal. Pool hours are 7:00a.m. to 10:00p.m. No glassware is allowed up by the pool. There are plenty of plastic cups to take cocktails to the pool with, and when you're buying beer please buy cans instead of bottles. The pool is shared with our sister house Casa Colina so please have respect for whoever is staying at the other house. I find it's best to send your most social guest up to introduce themselves to the other guests staying at the other house & try to get a read of what type of people they are. If it seems like they're there for a quiet get-away then try to keep the noise down at the pool. If they're a group of people similar to yours then invite them to meet you at the pool for a few beverages & see where it leads! We've met a bunch of great people this way and it makes for a really enjoyable stay for guests of the two houses. Bring a bluetooth speaker with you! We have a really good Bose speaker at the house, but it is NOT allowed to be taken up to the pool, so if you want music up by the pool bring your favourite portable speaker. The pool deck gets quite slippery when wet, so try to avoid horseplay on it or someone might get hurt. Also, the path coming down to our house from the pool is a little bit steep and can get a little slippery when wet so it's best to dry feet off before walking down the path. Lastly, and this goes without saying for most of our guests, please clean up after yourself when you're done using the pool. If you do get to know people at the other house please don't take any of the linens/cutlery etc from one house to the other house. We are 2 separate owners and anything missing from our house after check-out will be deducted from your damage deposit. There is air-conditioning in all rooms of our house. Electricity in Nicaragua is extremely expensive so please use the A/C only when you need it. The living room has 2 large Japanese style sliding doors and 2 large ceiling fans to circulate the air in the living room to keep you comfortable. The 2 bedrooms A/C units are very strong and can be too cold at times. I would suggest using them for 30 minutes before falling asleep and then shutting them off. If you leave them on then the room gets too cold & you wake up shivering. There are fans in both of the rooms to keep the air circulating while you sleep. MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE A/C UNITS WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE FOR THE DAY! If after your stay we deem electricity usage as overly excessive we may keep part of the damage deposit to offset the extra costs of the electricity. The house is non-smoking. Smoking in the house will result in loss of your entire damage deposit. There are a few surf DVD's for you and your group to enjoy before heading out to the beach for some waves! Enjoy! There is one large bottle of fresh water for every reservation. Once it's gone you're on your own for fresh water. These large water bottles can be purchased at the Pali for $5.
The possibilities for activities in and around San Juan del Sur are endless. Choose surfing in the morning, volcano tour in the afternoon, and finish the day off with a tour of a colonial city. I can help arrange anything you would like to do...don't hesitate to ask.
About Rob Burnett
This house is owned by two passionate surfers Rob Burnett and Danny Elder. We are Canadians who grew up enjoying all types of boardsports: snowboarding, skateboarding and wakeboarding. Once introduced to surfing we were both instantly hooked. Danny spends 3-4 months of the year surfing waves around the world, and when Rob isn't dreaming about the perfect uncrowded waves of Nicaragua he is running his business Freeride Boardshop.
Rob Burnett purchased this House in 2010
Why Rob Burnett chose Paradise Bay
Danny travelled the entire globe searching for the perfect surf destination. After checking out Brazil, Australia, Mexico, Hawaii, Costa Rica, and Indonesia Danny decided to give Nicaragua a try. Within days he fell in love with the town of San Juan del Sur. The town has everything including killer surf within short driving distances. This house and it's sister house were both being built at the same time and we decided to buy this one because of it's amazing view of the San Juan del Sur bay.
What makes this House unique
The one thing that this house has that many of the other rentals in San Juan del Sur don't is that it is close enough to quickly walk to downtown, but at the same time it's far enough away that you enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of the lush area that surrounds the house. The location, view, pool and setting are all amazing.
