Welcome to Orquidea del Sur, your private villa south of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Overlooking the surf break at Playa Yankee, Orquidea del Sur commands a 180 degree view of sunset over the Pacific that is every bit as breathtaking as you would hope. We promise.

With over 8000 square feet of living space, spectacular gardens, and two award winning swimming pools, the villa has everything you expect from a luxury vacation rental, and then there's the pool table!

The space

Orquidea del Sur can accomodate up to 18 people! Along with the main house, the property also has 4 poolside apartments available for a small additional fee. We never rent the apartments separately from the main house so you always have the entire place to yourself.

Casa Orchidea is beautiful. Its hard to describe how beautiful this place is. The house is on top of a mountain in playa yankee. I would recommend anyone staying here to have a 4x4 in order to get to the house and drive to the nearby beaches without any problems. Paul and Anne were great with us. Their communication was excellent and i would highly recommend this house for a large group of people. The staff on site was also very helpful. It was a great experience overall and highly recommended!

We stayed at this house after a week in Las Penitas, doing a volunteer build. It was a well needed relaxing & quick retreat. Although we were only there for two nights, the staff was as attentive as could be. Paul met is in town to guide us to the house, which is off the beaten path, and he explained all of the details of the house and property, which was very helpful. They arranged dinner one night, as well as massages at the house. They were both GREAT. It's a huge home and plenty of space for a large group, though we enjoyed the space for our small group as well, as we felt like it was a resort all to ourselves. Lots of animals and nature surround you here, including some monkeys! And although it's a little bit of a hike, the beach is not far away. The view is INCREDIBLE and that alone sells the house. My only minor complaint would be some spotty power outages, but it seems that's par for the course with this area of Nicaragua! And the guys quickly fired up the generator to ensure we could keep our AC and wifi cranking along! We had a great stay overall and we're already talking about a future trip with more girlfriends. Thanks Paul & Anne!

Thank you for the great review Ellen! And yes, power outages can happen in Nicaragua which is why we have the generator. Got to keep the cerveza nice and cold :) We would love to host you and your friends again in future.

We stayed at Orquidea with a family of 17 people - 5 families with kids varying in ages. Our days there was very nice, minus the mosquitos! But that's all of Nicaragua so it doesn't take away from the beauty of this place. This house accommodate my large family / large group nicely. The property is stunning and the views are incredible. Paul and Anne were responsive and friendly, as well as the on site staff... Martha is amazing and her sons are wonderful too. I woke up looking for coffee so sent a message to Paul, he had one of the staff members pick it up before the morning was over. That was so sweet of him. We were also able to arranged a shuttle into town for a night. Hope to come back one day and highly recommend this house. Paradise within paradise.
