CASA FLOR DE LUNA-ESCAPE TO A MODERN COLONIAL STYLE HOME WITH POOL

Granada House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom, three bathrooms, pool, garden and garage.

This modern Colonial Casa is nestled on a quiet street in a very safe neighborhood yet only a 7 minute walk to Central Park or Calzada. When you enter the house there is a nice staircase leading up to the main level that opens up to the main living area. At the front is a very large, airy livingroom with a big screen TV. Two beautiful windows that open up to let the crosswinds in and a gorgeous view of Volcan Mombacho. A full bathroom, fully equipped tiled kitchen with a gas stove and a round dining table that sits 6 people comfortably. This is all open to the courtyard with palm trees, plants and swimming pool.

The guest bedroom features AC, ceiling fans, 2 queen size beds and en suite bathroom with hot water available. There are double doors that open right to the pool.

Upstairs leads to a beautiful balcony and the very large Master bedroom with a queen size bed and its own en- suite bathroom, AC and ceiling fans. The bathroom also features hot water shower if you like. The views are just stunning from the balcony. A great place to chill and relax.

There are 8 ceiling fans throughout the Casa. The casa has been recently repainted. A lot of minor upgrades have been done to make the house as functional and operational as possible.

The entrance and first floor also has a garage but we are using it as a sitting room with an extra cot available. The laundry room has a washer/dryer.

Maid service is available 3 days a week, the pool is maintained 3 days a week. Groceries stores are nearby, Pali less than 5 minutes away. La Union and Colonia are about a 10 minute walk or you can just grab a taxi. There is a huge water tank so you always have water available.

Wi-fi internet is available and cable tv.

We also spend time here since we bought the house last July and have been equipping it with new appliances like a toaster, blender, new pots and pans, dishes and glasses.

About Gordana Govic

As Canadians, we were looking for a place in the sun for the winter months. Deciding to visit Nicaragua, we fell in love with Granada, the people, the flora and fauna, the colonial homes.

As new owners we won't have the chance to get down to the Casa until this winter where we plan to add a lot of flowers and plants to make it even more enchanting.

Gordana Govic purchased this house in 2012

Why Gordana Govic chose Granada

Casa Flor de Luna

One of our daily rituals while in Granada was to go to Fitzcaraldo's on Plaza de la Independencia to have an espresso and a fresh fruit juice. One day the waitress asked if we would like to try pitaya fruit juice. We said sure! We loved it so much and the color was amazing. After looking into the pitaya fruit on the internet we discovered that the flower that blooms on the cactus tree is called Moon Flower.

We looked at many properties and when we found Casa Flor de Luna, we loved everything about it. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, close to Parque Centrale and yet close to the supermarkets like La Union, Pali and Coloniale.

Hylocereus (sweet pitayas).

If not otherwise stated, this article's content refers specifically to the pitayas of Hylocereus species, or dragon fruit.

Hylocereus blooms only at night; the large white fragrant flowers of the typical cactusflower shape are among those called 'moonflower' or 'Queen of the Night'. Sweet pitayas have a creamy pulp and a delicate aroma. It is also grown as an Ornamental plant, used in gardens as a flowering vine, and a house plant indoors.

What makes this house unique

What is there not to love with having a pool, palm trees in your own courtyard, an open kitchen/dining area. A balcony with views of the volcano.

Our stay at Casa Flor de Luna was nothing less than exceptional. To start off, the owner, Gordana, helped out in every way possible, from having a taxi ready to pick us up at the airport, to having Erick (the guy in charge of her home in Nicaragua) waiting for us in front of Casa Flor de Luna. She e-mailed me all the time (before we arrived) to make sure that everything went off without a glitch...and it did. It is rare when someone can say that everything in a vacation went perfect. Well, everything in our vacation went perfect (one whole month of perfect!) The maid, Jenni, was excellent! Francisco the pool guy was great, too! He offered to leave his bike at the house so we could use it. Who does such a thing? I encourage all who stay at Casa Flor de Luna to tip these folks for their wonderful service. They earn very little income and deserve so much more. The house was in stellar condition and very well equipped. I don't know what else to say except that I very highly recommend this place to everyone. It is a five minute walk from "La Calzada", the touristy area.

Car: not necessary

Granada has so much to offer. Take a ferry ride on Sunday and visit the Isletas. Whether you want to take a tour of Volcano Mombacho or spend the day at the Laguna de Apoyo or take the bus and go to Masaya Market, you won't have a lack of things to do once you have a home base in Granada. Pacific coast, surfing or beaches are just an hour and 1/2 away. Visit Zapatera Island, go walk along Lake Nicaragua and visit the marina and have lunch at Villas Mombacho. Volunteering while you stay in Granada is also another way to discover the city and Nicaragua.
