WOW! No better word describes our visit to Nicaragua, but I must expand. I hope I don’t ruin the simple perfection found in that word and Nicaragua, but here goes…… My wife and I have just come back from a week in Nicaragua, our first. It was magical, wonderful, and an experience we will always cherish. Hopefully it will not be our last. We spent the front and back end of our trip in Granada during Holy Week (Semana Santa) 2014, and it was very inspirational. In the middle we found the most wonderful home on one of the most perfect pieces of earth on the Nicaraguan Pacific coast……..Casa Ezulwini. We investigated our trip a great deal, and this home gave us high expectations. It exceeded them all. It was a beautiful home with great art, cool tile floors, a roomy lay out and best of all it was set above the pounding surf that crashed upon the rocky shores, taking with it all the cares of the world. You could enjoy the view from the very large deck with plenty of seating and hammocks or you could experience it from the large infinity pool. It was perfect for a midday cool off or for staring at the stars as the Milky Way floated above your head at night. When we rented the home we did not expect all the amenities that would come with it. The home is fully stocked with everything one might need to feel at home. It is attached to NicaRetreats ( http://www.nicaretreats.com/) and they took care of all our needs. They scheduled us a massage and set up a wonderful panga (boat) trip to San Juan Del Sur. Octavio was our host for all of this and he was so proud of his country and so happy that we wanted to visit it that we could not help but feel welcome. The property has access to the AquaWellness resort. Their private beach at Redonda Bay was heaven. From the hammocks under canopy to the swim platform out in the middle of the bay, it was a perfect place to soak and relax. And of course the drinks at the ocean side bar were refreshing. When evening fell a dinner of Rondon and fresh catch Ceviche couldn’t be beat. We also skipped over to the surfing-fishing village of Playa Gigante and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The atmosphere was very eclectic. There’s nothing like Tona’s under surf boards and flags from all over the world in a driftwood shack right on the beach. This is a beautiful home, it is a beautiful country, come here and stay here. You won’t regret it.
