Overview

Bahia Gigante House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15

Situated on a coastal hill with a cliff on one side and the Pacific surf meeting the rocks just below, this brand new five bedroom beach house is located in the gated community of Redonda Bay next to the wonderfully authentic and friendly Nicaraguan fishing village of Gigante. The house is an ideal vacation destination for a large group, family reunion or multi-family vacation.

Redonda Bay's secluded, private white sand beach is a short walk down the hill and features a spa, beachside yoga and an excellent restaurant serving meals throughout the day. Enjoy the absolutely perfect water that you walk into without a flinch and once in never want to leave. From here guests can access other activities offered by the spa, snorkel amongst the rocks or just relax on the beach.

Just a short five minute drive away is the village of Gigante.

Here guests can choose from five beachside restaurants, watch the fishermen bring in their daily catch, pick up supplies at the pulperia (mini-grocery), buy fresh fish and local lobster, rent a surf board or body board and hang out with the locals, intrepid neighbors and ex-pat local residents. You will fall right in and find that your vacation dollars go a long way here.

Area activities include surfing, body boarding, horseback riding, hiking, sailing, small boat (panga) fishing, off-shore fishing, sea kayaking, snorkeling, wildlife viewing, zip-line canopy tours, volcano viewing, markets and visiting the nearby Spanish Colonial town of Granada ( the oldest city in North and South America.

On site property managers Grace and Sergio are on hand to answer any question, arrange for services and to make sure your stay is fun, comfortable and safe.

We strongly encourage guests to utilize the very affordable daily maid/cook service through the property managers to make the most of their stay.

The house itself is constructed of beautiful Brazilian hardwood and locally sourced tile. All of the furniture is brand new, top quality and handmade in Nicaragua. The main floor features a great room with an open kitchen, a dining table that seats eight and a living space perfect for conversation and games. The main floor veranda features an additional dining table with a view of the bay that is ideal for coffee, breakfast, lunch or an evening drink as the sun sets. The veranda also has rocking chairs and lounge chairs for whatever matches your mood. The kitchen features brand new appliances and is made for entertaining. The bunk room is a great place for kids with beds for 6 (3 twins and 3 trundles), a full bathroom, double doors to the veranda and plenty of room to lounge, hang out and watch movies.

The lower level features an infinity pool with a terrific view of the water, hammocks, chaise lounges, a hardwood picnic style table for dining/games that seats eight, a half bath and even an outdoor poolside shower. It?s the perfect place for the kids to hang out and call their own or for the entire family to relax. Adjacent to the pool is a palapa (thatch roofed shelter) and just above is the casita with a private bedroom (full size bed), full bathroom and laundry room.

The upper level features a gallery, three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a wraparound sun deck. The spacious master suite features a king size bed, balcony, dressing room, double sink full bathroom and double doors leading to the sundeck. The bedroom next to the master features two twin beds plus a third trundle bed and a full bathroom. The third bedroom features a full size bed, built in cabinets, a full bathroom and double doors leading to the sundeck.

Perfect Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5
You know when vacation feels like vacation ... Then you instantly know you made right choice!! We couldn't have picked a better place to spend time with family and have a family reunion. The time spent in this home was spectacular. The views were amazing and breathtaking. The pool, the hammocks, the house were all sssssooo perfect! Originally it was only going to be 11 of us but we ended up taking 15 people. The more the merrier! And the best thing is that this house is so perfectly arranged that it didn't feel that all 15 of us were there.

Bill was very quick to respond to my emails. We didn't get to meet Grace or Sergio during our stay but the security guards on the property answered all our questions and were beyond friendly. We stayed up past midnight all the nights and we would see the guard constantly walking around and checking.

The kitchen is fully equipped. We were not missing anything. The supermarket as well as quite a few restaurants are about a 5 min drive away. Great food in the beachside restaurants. You are also a short walk/hike (for those of us out of shape!) to Aqua Wellness resort. The restaurant there was amazing! They even deliver up to the house! There are also plenty of activities to do both at the resort and in town.

The secluded beach was very beautiful. We had some choppy water and could not enjoy it to its fullest but our kids were more than happy to jump back in the pool!

The house was very very clean! The TV in the living room area is a Smart TV and the kids enjoyed Netflix while the adults enjoyed the balcony with some drinks.

The top balcony was perfect to catch some sun, do some reading and provide an even better view of Bahia Gigante!

The ocean sounds were so relaxing all day and all night! We are definitely going back next year!

Amazing! There are no words that could describe our stay, none! It was better than could have been imagined looking at the pictures. Bill was exceptional in communication and accommodating our group. Grace took care of everything and always responded to any question or concern! The property, beach, sunsets and views were magical! I don't even feel like writing this is doing any justice for what we experienced. PLEASE STAY HERE! You would be short changing yourself from an experience of a lifetime if you don't!

Paradise in Nicaragua

  • 5 of 5
Redondo Bay and Gigante, and in particular, this house, is a hidden gem. It is a bit of a challenge to find, which adds to the sense of adventure, but once you arrive, you are greatly rewarded. Stunning views, fantastic patio space on every level, a gorgeous pool, ample hammocks for everyone, a beautiful relaxing atmosphere. While remote, there are great activities nearby - virtually empty surf breaks with great consistent waves we took advantage of every day, fantastic deep sea fishing (we caught a 20lb mahi-mahi on our first go), cliffside yoga and massage at the next door Aqua resort (also great food there). Gigante, a 5 minute drive has great beachside restaurants with fresh seafood. The trek to San Juan del Sur is less than an hour away if you need some more tourist activities, but we were happy to spend most of our time in a 5 minute vicinity of the house. The guards make you feel very secure. Also, monkeys, lizards and geckos are frequent visitors. Definitely recommend a 4x4

Started talking about our return before we left!

  • 5 of 5
The saying goes that, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Unfortunately, it does not appear that I can upload any of the pictures that I and my seven friends took while sitting on the porch watching the rising sun illuminate the Giant's Foot. Or the setting sun sinking into the Pacific. Or the great food that Sandra cooked for us. Or Oscar skimming the pool or tending to the garden. Or the first view of Redonda Bay as we rounded that corner (and then headed down that steep road!). Or the beautiful beach. Or the surf breaking on the rocks. Or the six hammocks. Or fishing the beach chairs out of the pool after that windy night. I could go on. But I'll stop.

As the headline says, we started talking about a return trip next year before we'd even left (Bill, I'll be emailing you as soon as I nail down the dates).

No words can do justice to the setting. We felt like we were perched on top of the surf. The house was beautiful. Everyone associated with it was amazing. Oscar's smile every morning was a great start to the day. Grace and Sergio took excellent care of us and answered lots of questions -- and a special shout-out to Sergio who spent two hours at the airport trying to find our friend Ian who got a ride with someone else (long, kinda funny story). Sandra made us wonderful meals and was a sweetheart, she was only out charmed by her son.

And to answer the questions that VRBO suggests you answer:
The description of the house and the pictures do not do it justice. You will LITERALLY stop in your tracks.
It was spotless. And the maid service was amazing.
Bill and the managers were very helpful in answering questions.
Recommend the property? I've already invited friends and family to join me for a return trip next year.

Bill, if Grace and Sergio ever quit, I want the job, that's how much I loved Redonda Bay!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Both the setting and the home were spectacular. The beach, restaurant and other facilities at the Agua Resort (shared property) were first class. The snorkeling was an unexpected delight. Although this is an obviously expensive home, it was surprisingly kid-friendly, with few knicks-knacks to break and a great 4-bed room with TV and chairs for he kids to claim as their own territory. Local staff was friendly and helpful and the owner easy to work with. We left this morning and are already trying to figure out a way to come back!

Lots of lounge chairs, hammocks and rocking chairs all with spectacular views of the Pacific, Redonda Bay and the 24 hour water and rocks show below. World class surfing for beginners to experts. Fishing with the local fishermen including private charters available at reasonable prices. Nearby golf course. One hour to Colonial Granada - the oldest city in North and South America. Nearby canopy 'zip line' tours. Nearby San Juan del Sur, live volcano, craft market and absolutely authentic Nicaraguan life in the fishing village of Gigante just 5 minutes from the house.
