Casa Maya eco surf lodge is a 19 bed, 15.5 bath lodge in an unparalleled location only seconds from the surf beach of Playa Remanso, Nicaragua! Consisting of 12 private rooms each with an ensuite bathroom, a dormitory offering 6 bunk beds with 2 full bathrooms, and a cafe that includes a half bathroom for patrons. Lastly is the onsite Manager’s Casita, which is a one bedroom/one bathroom home with full kitchen and amenities.
Total area of construction is 5,720 square feet on a 808 sq. meter lot, a little less than 1/4 an acre. 2,880 square feet internal + 2,840 square feet exterior of oversized balconies including a breathtaking rooftop balcony for outdoor living and wildlife watching. Ocean views are possible from the rooftop balcony, sometimes shared with our family of monkeys.
Casa Maya Eco Surf Lodge is divided into three sections; two towers (Ocean and Sunset), and the third section being the Manager Casita. Each of these sections has an elevated roof that provides both rain protection and heat diversion, along with cooling ventilation along the rooftops to take advantage of the prevailing offshore breezes. It truly is an intelligent design.
The cafe has two ceiling fans, the manager’s casita has a ceiling fan, and the bedrooms have wall fans. No hot water but that could be added.
The entire project was designed and built to strict US standards using upcycled shipping containers, stacked atop incredibly engineered foundations. Each container is 40 foot long with extra high ceilings of 9’6″ allowing for the heat to rise for greater guest comfort. With the utilization of Louvre windows, and strategic placement of all three sections, the environmentally friendly aspect of natural cooling is maximized by taking advantage of the offshore winds.
Included with the sale is a 2005 Toyota Hilux 4×4 great for transporting patrons to neighboring beaches or town and general errands as well as a small diesel generator for back-up power.
Casa Maya Eco Surf Lodge is a unique build using shipping containers for a hotel in Nicaragua. It’s location at Playa Remanso offers a rare laid-back vibe that is inviting to both tourists and beginner surfers. The superior location is “beach-close” providing the ability to be first in the water and the last one to leave the waves after other visitors have departed for the day.
