Spyglass House is unquestionably nice but . . . : . . . you will BRAG about the never-to-be-forgotten sunsets paraded before you every night on a private balcony and Infinity pool. Okay, Okay, Okay . . . you have the same view from three balcony's, the two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining room.

SPYGLASS HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
We arrived in Playa Coco and stumbled across Robert Holtmans CR Properies office after a long day travelling and no place to stay. He showed us around a few rental properties in Coco and after explaining we wanted something a little more special he then quickly arranged us to view the spyglass house in nearby Ocotal. After looking around this place we agreed on a months rental. This place is a wonderful and private place to stay. It has two ensuite bedrooms with queen size very comfortable beds! There is aircon, wifi, cable tv, telephone and all mod cons as you would expect in this magnificent property which overlooks the bay in ocotal. There is a wonderful outdoor area with a BBQ and seating area and infinity pool where we spent many an evening watching the glorious sunset. A great place to stay If you are ever in this area.

LUXURY WITH A VIEW

  • 4 of 5
this well maintained and well furnished villa was a pleasant experience, a designers delight.

the dark-bottomed pool absorbed sunlight and warmed up well and was very pleasant and spotless. the large deck with wet-bar and lounge chairs was as attractive as the off-living-room deck -- tough choice for your mid-morning reading or nap.

other tough choice: which of 3 eating spots to dine, which of 2 large bedrooms to use. a giant TV to ignore if bound to nature. good internet service for those impromptu activity searches and iPad news downloads.

kitchen facilities were complete including the 8-inch prof-chef knife, etc.

it was possible to walk to the wonderful black-sand beach on the main road in about 20 minutes, down a steep hill. nice and clean with great swimming. definitely plan on a sunset dinner in Father Roosters right next to you on the beach -- better than expected (there are good internet reviews that list it as a "must visit" place). at least have cocktails or a beer.

there were two friendly "guard" dogs on the property. we are not "dog people" but fell in love with these older gentle and obedient dogs ("no" and "out" were instantly obeyed). they even followed us on walks and one swam in the ocean with us.

the rental process needs a bit more time and interaction/iteration than usual -- be patient with Robert as he does come through. Robert was quite helpful and responsive during our stay (example: BBQ gas refill).

10 days in January -- well spent at this villa. and we wanted to take the dogs home with us. ;-)

Notes

  • The owner has been personally involved in the construction of this property requiring many years of patience and attention to details. Built on a seemingly impossibly steep slope near the ridge line, using 62 concrete pylons going 10 meters into the rock, this house isn't going anywhere. The 'broken tile' walking steps show a lot of patience in arraigning the pieces by hand. The balcony hand rails are teak wood requiring a weekly application of treatment to maintain their rich look. there is no walls facing the view instead there are floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall plate glass windows so as to not obstruct the view in any way. The cabinets through out the home are crafted of teak also with attention given to clean lines and symmetry. The finishing touch of carefully selected pieces finish the home nicely.
