Holiday Rental House
In the deep south of Nicaragua, just a stone's throw from Costa Rica, there's the kind of beach you can only hope to stumble upon while traveling - Playa Escameca. Long and wide, this beach has only a couple of houses and a handful of beach bungalows dotted here and there, so staying with us means you're surrounded by nothing but ocean and nature! For the travelers out there looking for something authentic, peaceful and off-the-beaten-path, we introduce you to Casa Horizon! Casa Horizon is a multi-leveled jungle house that has an eco-friendly design to minimize its footprint. If you were ever a Survivor fan than this beach may look familiar to you, as it was actually the setting for a camp in Survivor Nicaragua 2010.

Long and wide, this beach has only a couple of houses and a handful of beach bungalows dotted here and there, so staying with us means you're surrounded by nothing but ocean and nature! For the travelers out there looking for something authentic, peaceful and off-the-beaten-path, we introduce you to Casa Horizon! Casa Horizon is a multi-leveled jungle house that has an eco-friendly design to minimize its footprint. If you were ever a Survivor fan than this beach may look familiar to you, as it was actually the setting for a camp in Survivor Nicaragua 2010. This rental consists of 5 bedrooms, and 5 washrooms, a kitchen, massive living room, a dining room, a yoga studio (or hammock lounge), and large patios with beautiful hardwood floors, so you can soak in the incredible views of the beach and the EPIC horizon at sunset. We are part of a gated community called Costa Dulce Surfside Community, so we are also represented by a team of 8 night security watchman, as well as our own night security 7 nights/week. We are very remote, but also in an incredibly safe and peaceful environment. It's amazing how isolated you can feel staying at Casa Horizon, but San Juan del Sur - a funky, laid-back surf town - is only 25 minutes drive away. As well as our own surfbreak directly out front, you can walk to Playa Yankee in 20 minutes - a reknowned surfbreak in Nicaragua. We are one of only two properties located along the beach in our majestic bay, Playa Escameca. Prices vary through the year, with High season in October - May, and Green Season June - September, which has more rain, but ultimately any time of year is an awesome time to visit Nicaragua. The climate is extremely warm year around, and perfect for a beach destination. The waves are often even better in low season, but we are blessed with offshore winds, it is the perfect wind for consistent waves year around. As well, being so close to the ocean at Casa Horizon with the waves and wind gives a cozy breeze that helps keep you comfortable, so we do not need air con at Casa Horizon, and our walls are open and breathable, with screens instead of windows, to keep insects out. We have high quality fans, and luxurious beds, sheets, pillows, towels, sofas, furniture, countertops/bars, appliance, and also many individual spaces to work, if you have interest in staying for a while, or need to take time away to get some things done. Lay in a hammock, practice yoga, eat meals, hang out with friends, and even watch movies or events on the big screen!...Yet, you are right in the thick of a gorgeous nature reserve in front of a beautiful surfbreak, and sunset view. It's rustic luxury as we would call it. Comfortable mattresses, designer quality sheets, towels and pillows. Hot showers. Big washrooms. Great fans. Views of the sunset, like you would not believe! And only a 3 minute walk to one of the most gorgeous beaches in Nicaragua. We haven't even told you about the viewpoint that's about a 4 minute walk from the house, or the hikes to other beaches, or about the turtle nesting sanctuary down the steps from the house, and where baby turtles are often hatching and being released into the ocean, more than 10,000 babies per year in fact, under an organization called 'Vital Action'. The founder of Casa Horizon is also the founder of a travel company called Free & Easy Traveler, and 'Breathe in Life' Yoga Travel, so our team has a great deal of experience in customizing any kind of group trip, event, reunion, birthday, wedding, yoga retreat, surf adventure, bachelor party, fitness retreat, or adventure travel, that you have in mind. Casa Horizon was designed in mind to be the best expression of what we would want in a location, from so many of the favourites that we've experienced in the 20 plus countries that our companies operate. Nicaragua is truly a special country to travel, but Casa Horizon is a magnificent spot where you'll be thankful to end up! Whether you are a couple, a solo traveler, or with a group of friends/family altogether, the property and experience can be customized to your needs. If the dates are available to book, then it means one of our suites is available, and we are happy to reserve it for you. More

About the neighbourhood
The photos will provide the best idea of the beauty in the area, and all of them are from our property or at the beautiful beach, Playa Escameca, which we are only 50 - 100 steps down from our terraced hotel and villa.
Getting around
Most of the lifestyle when you're staying at Casa Horizon lets the outside world slip away, and most days are spent in the close vicinity of the hotel, where there's an abundance of amazing experiences. Walking, surfing, paddle-boarding, horseback riding, catamaran & boat trips, or acro yoga, are how we normally get around. If you decide you want to visit other beaches, or San Juan del Sur for a night out, or shopping, we have a network of local drivers that can cater to your needs, as well as our own hotel transport that can assist with activities and trips to town (25 mins). If you choose to drive on your own, then we recommend that you get a 4x4 for some of the unpaved roads, but it's still possible to make it with a smaller car.
