We're married Chicagoans who got too eager for very early retirement and bought a house in Nicaragua--and then, crazily, a second house--before we could use it full time! In the meantime, we take care of our dog and cats and assure them how much they'll love Nicaragua when we all get there. 'He' is a professional chef who wants to open a restaurant when we finally make our way there. 'She' is a lawyer who has worked too many long hours for too many years and loves the idea of switching careers entirely and also offering good jobs to Nicaraguans through the restaurant. It's a little hard to do these write-ups as it's not our nature to want to talk about ourselves, but we're happy to answer any questions you might have. And yes, people think we're crazy for planning to move to Nicaragua.

Luxury. Space. Light.

Comfort and a sense of space.

This is known as the best neighborhood in Granada, for good reason. Quiet and family-oriented, and easy distance to everything you need or want to see. The house is so spacious and light that it feels luxurious, and we added art and high-end furniture to make it feel even more so. The views from the upper-floor bedroom are astonishing.

GRANADA OASIS

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful Oasis in the midst of Granada. Our family of 6 adults landed here after a long day of flying and what a treat to be able to slip into the pool and let the stress of traveling float away. Casa Paloma is open, spacious, charming, with a flair of a past era, with tall ceilings, three bedrooms with large commfortable beds and a stylish kitchen. Casa Paloma is within walking distance to some of Granada points of interest, and good restaurants. Be sure and take a boat trip on the lake. Our greeter, Julio, was a great resourse and added tremendously in making our transition into Nicaragua a pleasant experience from before we left our home until we said Adios on the steps of Casa Paloma. This place truly may be the "Best Nights Sleep in Granada", as it definitely was for us. I would for sure recommend Casa Paloma for your stay in Granada.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY! CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Casa Paloma from May 23-May 30. The house was very spacious. Our son stayed in the upstairs room and absolutely loved it, because of it's privacy. It was very hot in Granada, so lucky for us, there were air conditioners in each bedroom. The courtyard area got a little warm, but with the pool, we really didn't care. The house was within walking distance to everything, even a supermarket. The property manager, Julio, couldn't have been more helpful. From the time he picked us up at the airport, he kept in constant touch to see if we needed anything. He took us on tours which we really liked because he was so knowledgeable and clearly loved Nicaragua. One day, he took us to Masaya Volcano, which was very cool; Catarina Apoyo Lagoon and to a house where they made pottery. The young man, Duilio Torrez, gave us a demonstration in pottery making. I even tried my hand at it, and with his help, managed to make a decent looking bowl. The next day, Julio took our kids to Apoyo Lagoon for swimming, kayaking and a really great lunch. The kids said that was their best day. Julio, who is amazing, can arrange anything you might want to do, because as he told me, "Nothing is impossible". He always, "knows someone". The neighborhood was safe and everyone was very friendly. We absolutely loved staying together at this beautiful house!!

NICE STAY

  • 4 of 5
we spent 3 nights at casa paloma near the center of granada.
the house is clean and the price/value is good.
the caretaker julio is a very nice guy and very helpful. two bedrooms have a private bath room, the third bedroom has his bathroom one floor below, which is not very comfortable during the night or after having a shower.
the wifi worked perfect, the pool is nice and the relaxing area also.
in total it was a nice stay!

CASA PALOMA

  • 4 of 5
We loved our trip to Granada even in April the hottest month of the year. There are few good quality hotels and since we were staying a week we rented a home. Starting with the positives, the homeowner is responsive and communicates quickly and regularly answering questions including providing recommendations for restaurants and activities. The property manager, Julio is as wonderful as previous posts suggest. He not only picked us up at the airport when we arrived but we employed him as a tour guide for several days. He goes above and beyond expectations and has above average English skills. He is also knowledgable about his country and local sites. For "above and beyond", two examples come to mind. A few days into our trip, we decided to leave Granada and to go to San Juan del Sur. Julio had set up a car and driver to take us there and pick us up. On the day we were to go the car/driver had an accident. Julio quickly found another car to use and arrived at our house at the prearranged time and drove us himself even though this took time away from his family. Example #2, Julio actually LENT us a local cell phone and helped us purchase some "minutes". We only used this cell to talk to him, which came in handy a couple of times especially when we realized that my daughter had left her iPhone in one of the cars we were using for touring. Julio tracked down the owner/operator of the car found the iPhone and drove to Managua to get it for us. This was about a 2+ hour trip for him. If I were rating Julio alone it would be an excellent. Regarding the house, in my opinion the furnishings are at best only "average". Some of the furniture is new but some is older and stained and torn. The beds are comfortable but basically average as are the towels and linens. You notice patching in the wall plaster which also needs painting, the art on the walls is like an apartment you might have had in your 20s. What takes the house from "average" to Good is the WIFI, the pool, the air conditioning in the bedrooms and the location in town. I specifically state air conditioning in bedrooms because there are only ceiling fans in the rest of the house. The pool which is literally in the center of the house (the kitchen on one side and the living area on the other the other side) is odd but works. The neighborhood is quiet, seems safe and is in walking distance to markets, the center of town and most restaurants. The rental price seemed reasonable especially for April.

GREAT ADVENTURE VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Large living areas very relaxing. Everyone had their own space. Pool every afternoon before we went out.All 3 bedrooms had their own A C's. Our house Manager Julio catered to our every needs without him we wouldn't have known where to go or what to see Monkey Hut was my personal high light. Being walking distance from center of town and not having a vehicle was very convenient. The neighbors across the street I will also miss very much!!! Julio and Family we love U

GREAT TIME IN CASA PALOMA

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time this week in Casa Paloma and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Granada. It's located only a few minutes walk from the main action – a perfect distance to avoid too much noise and traffic. It's a beautiful place and the swimming pool was perfect for cooling off during the hot days.

Julio went out of his way to take good care of us, organizing rides, recommending restaurants, even teaching an impromptu salsa lesson. Carmen was also a big help as she cooked dinner and babysat for us one night.

We'll miss Casa Paloma!
