Guestbook comments from the owner
My family and I (there were 10 adults and 3 children) spent 7 great days at Jeannie Hammond's amazing home on Redondo Bay in Nicaragua. The home and accommodations were nothing short of perfect. The view in the morning is a million dollar view of the ocean and hillsides surrounding the bay. Jeannie's staff were really great and we became friends with them all........Francisco is the grounds keeper and kept everything in working condition and helped us with everything we needed. Celina our chef kept us well fed and her food was delicious. Our housekeeper kept us in clean sheets & towels and was very sweet. Jeannie suggested that we use Omar as our driver while in Nicaragua and we used him the entire time we were there, Omar and his staff were very helpful and looked after us wherever they took us. Jeannie is amazing and her house is only surpassed by her assistance in making sure you have a wonderful experience while visiting her home. We are so grateful to Jeannie and her wonderful staff who have become family to us all.

This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in years, the beaches are beautiful, the Nicaraguan people warm and all in all I would recommend this home to anyone wishing to have a great vacation. Thank you very much Jeannie!

We live in Florida. Dan, having lived in Spain for six years during his studies, is very fluent in Spanish. Jeannie not so much. We work with WEGO Ministries for mission work each year in Nicaragua.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

We have been enjoying the people of Nicaragua since 1998, coming on yearly mission trips. A few years ago, a friend who had been visiting all the new resorts in Nicaragua, told us we had to see this unbelievable jewel of a place called Redonda Bay on the Pacific. We went down the next day and were in love. The beauty truly was breathtaking. So we said 'Let's build a house here!' Just completed January 2010. Wait until you see it!

This home is unique to our community as it consists of a compound of buildings. The main building houses the kitchen, living room, dining room and has a patio and deck as well as an infinity pool. The upper building has four guest rooms each with it's own balcony to sit and view the ocean. The master bedroom is in front of the guest building and features a rounded porch with a panaromic view of the ocean.

For your convenience, we can provide you with a driver to make your vacation that much more of a pleasure.

A BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH AN AMAZING VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Bahia Gigante with about 40 of our close friends. We rented 4 of the homes in the area. We felt very lucky to have stayed at La Joya. The others were nice but La Joya was extra special. The decor was very tasteful and the view is spectacular. The house was spotless. The area is family friendly and very safe. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. I can not wait to return...

SCENIC SECLUSION

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Nicaragua, thanks to the accommodations & magnificent views at Casa La Joya.

From our poolside perch, we were mesmerized daily, by the breathtaking vista & the sound of the crashing waves against the cliffs below. Upon our arrival, we easily selected our bedrooms because there were water views from every room. We enjoyed breakfast every morning from the west deck and were joined by a variety of birds of which our favorite were the hummingbirds. For several days, in the late afternoon we were thrilled to witness whales, breaching, as they migrated south.

The staff were very helpful; we did not have a car, but the housekeeper arranged for a driver to take us to restaurants & activities.

The beach & Aqua restaurant were within walking distance. We enjoyed seeing the Howler monkeys, the flora & fauna, while following the path down to the restaurant.
We highly recommend Casa La Joya to anyone visiting Centra America.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 4 of 5
This is indeed an amazing home and the road is being paved now almost the whole way to this area from the Pan American Highway. The owner was great it making sure that we arrived alright and everything was in order.

The only suggestion I have is be prepared to not have cell or internet at the house. It comes and goes, but it is mostly non existant.

The house cleaning service offered is weak at best. We found the workers napping around the property. Lots of lurking around and very little cleaning. Even though there were only two of us staying at the house, these employees even complained to the owner that we left the house a mess.

If you do elect to go with the cleaning service offered, Be specific as to what time you want them every day and what they will be doing and that them hanging around will not be tolerated.

Wonderful house, Superb location and community, friendly owners. I would stay here again if given the chance.

Owner's Response: The internet issue has been resolved. The problem was that the ISP had the modem configured incorrectly. There is better signal for the cell phones now, although not perfect with certain areas of the property having coverage.
The workers waiting around were those waiting to get into the room that the traveler did not vacate on time. They were patiently waiting without complaining to him.
We have a new housekeeper.

A RELAXING AND ADVENTUROUS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Casa La Joya for 4 nights in September. As soon as the driver pulled up to the house we all said "Wow." The view of the ocean crashing into the cliff below us was absolutely breathtaking.

When we arrived we were greeted by the house manager who did the food shopping for us, cooked our meals and even made fresh citrus and fruit juices for us daily. The accommodations were nicely detailed with native hardwoods used throughout. Each morning we were greeted by the magnificent views of the pacific ocean as as we pulled back our window shades.

The pool area was very well maintained, with a beautiful outdoor lounging area that overlooked lush landscaping - floating in the pool and watching the sun set over the pacific was amazing. Just down the road we found a spa. We had massage treatments in an open-air space that overlooked the ocean.

We went up to a nearby volcano where we zip-lined down the tropical canopy. Everyone was genuinely friendly to us wherever we went. Overall we found the area of the country to be relaxing, restful and adventurous all at the same time.

ROMANCE AND LUXURY CARVED OUT OF THE UNSPOILED NICARAGUAN LANDSCAPE ON THE PACIFIC COASTLINE

  • 5 of 5
In the backwoods rainforest of Nicaragua, Casa La Joya is the best decision we could have made for a romantic vacation. Once we crossed the Nicaraguan border, we winded up and down unpaved roads into the tropical forest stretching to the ocean. As we pull up to Casa La Joya which is carved out of the unspoiled Nicaraguan landscape on a secluded piece of Pacific Coastline, it was so incredibly private that all you can hear are the birds and monkeys being drowned out by the waves crashing against the rocks - which you could listen to forever! At Casa La Joya, romance and luxury are an understatement. From the linens, unique regional art work, relaxing infinity pool and watching the sunrise from your bed over the rainforest to the way we were looked after, everything was Perfect! Fabulously designed from hardwoods by Master Craftsman Humberto who's also an artist and created the furnishings that evoke a polished jungle feel. It was the “Green Season” and we witnessed how the Tropical Dry Forest changes with the seasons. It’s sunny every morning and it rains later in the day making it the perfect time to relax and refresh ourselves amidst the peaceful beauty and natural harmony. Mornings started with a delicious breakfast prepared by Chef Ana with local dishes, homemade tortillas and fruits that were in season-some of which were actually grown on the property. We enjoyed massages and facials at Aqua Wellness Resort which is in the same gated community. Built into a forested hillside, it makes one of the country's most breathtaking settings. We got to smell natural oils and decide which one we wanted for our treatments. We decided on the Almond Oil and bought some later at the Masaya Market! Whether you reserve Casa La Joya all for yourself or just part of it, Jeannie, the owner, makes sure that you are very spoiled yet have more than enough private time as well. Jeannie went with us to nearby Grenada where we enjoyed a fabulous lunch at El Zaguan. Steaks are grilled and seasoned in an open flame pit and the taste and accompaniments were excellent. We visited the Guadalupe Church located at the end of la calzada-great architecture and full with history! Don’t miss Rancho Santana, a 2,700 lush ranch and the best in all of Nica' blending local fare with 5 star execution. We want to return to enjoy the beauty, serenity, and pampering at Casa La Joya because it's one of those rare gems making it the romantic vacation we were dreaming of!
