Casa La Fortaleza for Sale in el Carrizal: Four Story Multi-Unit with Valley Views

La Fortaleza is a four-story building overviewing the valleys and the Pacific Ocean in El Carrizal, San Juan del Sur.

This property is large in more ways than one! With almost an acre of land and construction of 4 stories, it has the potential to generate rental income from 3 individual apartments, or as one, generously sized home.


About the Location:

El Carrizal / El Socorro is a beautiful nature-filled neighborhood located 15 minutes South of San Juan del Sur, overviewing astonishing valley and mountain chains with partial ocean views. Explore the scenic hiking trails around el Socorro to catch sight of spider monkeys and sloths in their natural habitat. Plus, immerse yourself in the beach lifestyle with access to three stunning beaches- Playa Hermosa, Playa Remanso and Playa Yankee- just a quick 10 min drive away.

El Carrizal has no HOA and is a peaceful development featuring expansive green areas, while providing proximity to the main paved road South of San Juan del Sur and easy access to the national power grid. The property is also next to the friendly eco-living community Finca de Escamequita – Phase 1, while sharing the main public access road.

La Fortaleza is located near the development’s entrance, with a paved road leading from town, only the final 100 meters remain unpaved. Further within the development, around a dozen homes have been constructed providing a sense of community when desired.

About the Land:

La Fortaleza is built on a large (3,604 sq meters) fully fenced, gently sloped lot with incredible valley views from every level that will not be blocked by potential neighboring construction. There is also plenty of space to add-on to the home, construct a pool or landscape a garden.

Note that this is a commercial and residential lot – perfect opportunity for a building additional casitas and create a business such as bed and breakfast or other business ventures.

The property is currently powered by a solar system with batteries, and can easily be connected to the city electricity.

There are a private septic system onsite.

La Fortaleza’s water feed consists of 2 large cisterns (tanks of water) collecting the rainwater, that can also be refilled with by a private company.

There is also the possibility to buy additional lots close to the main road next door and extend the property:

Lot 28 for sale in el Carrizal ! ($35,000)

About the Building:

The views from La Fortaleza are truly breathtaking, and it’s easy to spend hours just taking in natural beauty and incredible expansive views. Plus, with a four-story design, residents can enjoy plenty of privacy.

The building is made of steel and concrete, has outdoor steel stairs, and features high ceilings. It was built in 2018 to withstand earthquakes and has a strong foundation. The entire building has been well maintained, including being repainted in 2023.

Turn Casa La Fortaleza into a large family house, with up to 6-7 rooms, or lease as three individual apartment units, currently with shared utilities:


The 1st floor features two rooms with individual access. One is currently used as a bodega, while the other serves as an office and game room with its private ensuite bathroom and storage room.

This floor could becomes an independent studio apartment overviewing the garden, with an additional storage room.


There are two entrances accessing the 2nd floor, the main wood door leading to the open kitchen and living room, and the side door near the corridor leading to the bedrooms and bathroom.

The 2nd floor features 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, 1 bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen overviewing the valley, and a spacious living room. Enjoy the access to a mini terrace that could easily be extended and turned into an outdoor dining area.
Note that the 2nd floor has an indoor staircase connecting to the 3rd floor.


The 3rd floor features 2 additional bedrooms with amazing lighting, queen size beds, and a shared bathroom. If you were looking to maximize income, one of thes bedrooms could easily be turned into a kitchen with indoor dining and it could be rented as a 1 bedroom independent unit.

Relax with a peaceful nap on the balcony with a massive view, or continue on to the outdoor stairs for access to the rooftop terrace.


This is my favorite room of Casa La Fortaleza – with a 360 panoramic valley views and even a glimpse of the Pacific ocean!

The rooftop currently offers a spacious, open area with available electrical and water connections. Keep it as an expansive rooftop terrace, or transform it into a cozy communal living space with wide sliding glass windows. Alternatively, consider converting the rooftop into a separate penthouse studio with amazing views!

With its stunning location, incredible views, and extended garden, La Fortaleza is the perfect spot for those who love privacy, independence and space!!
