Comprising 27 luxury residential properties, La Santa María Resort and Residences overlooks the ocean and pristine bay of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, offering rental and investment options with world-class services and amenities. Founded by Julio Arguello Lacayo of JH ARGUELLO & CO – a leading real estate investment conglomerate in Spain, the U.S. and Nicaragua – the resort is built on seven-and-a-half acres and provides amazing hospitality and experiences to its owners and guests.
Developed by Zürcher Architects, world renowned architects and designers, La Santa María Resort and Residences finished Phase One in 2018. Since then, they have added 27 properties each offering a distinctive and personal touch. All their residences are equipped with high-speed fiber optic internet, 24/7 onsite security, a full-time concierge, backup electricity and water supply, hospitality and maintenance staff. To ensure the best comfort for their guests, the resort puts an emphasis on guest/owner experience, exclusivity and security as they are creating a curated community of elegance in a world-class environment.
“La Santa Maria has a unique value proposition for all its stakeholders. We have developed a unique concept where we are not a hotel, but we offer the services of a resort and an exclusive rental program for its buyers,” said Julio Arguello. “One of the main reasons to invest in a property in Nicaragua is the low price of properties and cost of living compared to Costa Rica. Nicaragua is unquestionably one of the most affordable countries in Central America, and its real estate market is still relatively under-developed,” added Arguello.
Currently, La Santa María has six move-in ready properties available for sale. Overlooking the beautiful view of San Juan del Sur all with their own private plunge pool, Villa 2 is listed for $559,000, Villa 4 is listed for $569,000 and Villa 6 is listed for $579,000. They are all within a short two-to-three-minute walk to the resort’s clubhouse where villa owners can enjoy a smoothie and snack bar as well as the co-working space which offers a beautiful view of the infinite pool and bay. All villas on the market are two-stories, measure at 3,101 sq. ft, are fully furnished and feature five bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. Also, on the market are three of their ocean-view loft apartments (prices are yet to be defined) either offered as a studio or one-bedroom apartment measuring at 484 sq. ft.
Along with assisting buyers with purchasing of homes and villas, they offer a rental program which is fully hands-on, as their dedicated team handles everything from guest screening, listing management, property certification and maintenance, enforcement of rules and regulations and more.
“The low cost of living and a relatively under-developed real estate market, the investment potential of the area is huge,” said Arguello. “We are excited to share that the Phase Two ‘Second Voyage’ development is slated to be completed in 2024 and offer more long and short-term rentals, as well as for investment opportunities.”
The new project will feature an all-new six-story apartment building ‘La Arena’, which includes 18 units in the range of 1,200 square feet, and with the latest modern designs, featuring tall ceilings and covered terraces. It will also feature six new ocean view villas, ‘Las Olas’ of between 3,400-3,700 square feet.
