CASA GALLO: A SPACIOUS & BEAUTIFUL COLONIAL HOME

Granada House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Casa Gallo is a traditional colonial home 5 blocks from the Central Park, in a quiet area of large colonial homes. This 5,330 square foot house (8,500 sq. ft. including gardens) was restored and modernized in 2004 to serve as a delightful vacation rental home. With a score of 4.5/5 for 11 travelers' reviews on Trip Advisor, Casa Gallo is the number one vacation rental in Granada.

There are three bedrooms (one 20' x 20' x 15' high), 3 bathrooms, dining area, kitchen with bar, a large living room, and a TV/Library room, with all rooms fronting on the large interior courtyard with its beautiful trees and garden open to the sky. A pool, gazebo and fountain complete this central area. A wrought iron table and chairs are in the center of the gazebo.

There are two distinct seating areas along the edge of the interior courtyard in addition to the dining area, kitchen, bar, and gazebo seating. The home is furnished in colonial style, with antiques and replicas. There is an employee room and bath. Stairs in the rear of the courtyard lead to a second level balcony with panoramic views of Granada rooftops and Mombacho Volcano. A beautiful private walled garden of 2,300 square feet with fruit trees, banana plants, bougainvillea and lawn is entered through a large covered patio from a door at the rear of this balcony.

All bedrooms have bathrooms with hot water showers and split compressor air conditioners with remote controls, as well as ceiling fans. Two bedrooms have queen beds and cable TV, the third has twin beds. There is a laundry room with washer & dryer, and a garage.

A land-line is available for local calls only; 2 cellular phones are also available for guests' use and phone cards may be purchased locally with whatever number of minutes are required. A high speed internet connection with WI-FI is installed, so you can also use Skype on your laptop to make long-distance calls.

Our housekeeper works 9-4 Mon-Fri with an hour off for lunch, and 9-noon on Saturday, although guests often prefer to excuse her earlier if her work is done. She will also wash clothes and iron upon request. Our gardener works daily from 9AM until he finishes cleaning and watering the garden. If guests are away on a trip, leaving the house empty, he remains at night from 6PM to 6AM to provide security.

Casa Gallo has an automatic standby water system of 750 liters, and two battery-inverter standby electrical systems that provide essential 110 volt power for much of the house in the event of a power outage.

A highly-experienced property manager from Granada Property Services (GPS) will assist you when you arrive at Casa Gallo and take care of any and all house-related problems that may arise during your stay.

Super Hub with Helpful Host

  • 5 of 5
Traditional spanish style home with garden and small pool in
courtyard. Three bedrooms on one side. Kitchen and dining
area on the other. There's also a sitting room at front and room to
park one car inside. There are multiple sitting areas around
the courtyard and a small table beside pool. The hammock and rocking
chairs were very popular with the kids.

The house is a good choice when traveling with children but they need
to be watched closely around the pool, etc.

The kitchen was well furnished. A second elevated garden was behind
the house. The home was decorated with a
considerable amount of local folk art depicting festivals in Granada
and the surrounding area. There's a library with
information about Granada, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

The house was clean and well maintained. We cooked breakfast and out
for lunch and dinner. Temperatures get high in Granada, and we loved coming back to the house in the afternoon and cooling off with a dip in the pool.

There's a good supermarket about four blocks from the house. It's
about a fifteen minute walk to the center of Granada.

The owner and house manager, Jose, can arrange transportation. We
were picked up at the Costa Rican border by
a van. One way cost was $125. From the border with Costa Rica, it's about one hour
and forty five minutes. We stopped for food and
drinks on the way.

The house manager, Jose, was very helpful. When we arrived, Jose
showed us around the house and took us to the
grocery store. He also arranged tours around town, to the volcanic
islands, the local markets in Masaya, and to Catarina (terrific view). He came with us on the tours and arranged
personal security when necessary. Although
Nicaragua appears to be developing rapidly, there is still a good
deal of poverty and one has to take care where one walks,
particularly after dark. Jose is a keen baseball fan!

We had great time at the house during our stay in Granada.

A Colonial Adventure

  • 5 of 5
Hi,
I stayed at Casa Gallo recently with two friends and a four-year old. The house is gorgeous with wonderful amenities.(books, music, hammocks, gardens, rocking chairs, AC's, phones, laundry room, chaise lounges, filtered water, etc.) Jose and Maria-Elena were so friendly and accommodating. The day we arrived they were at the house waiting to greet us. Every afternoon ,we used the pool which was wonderful especially with a youngster. One morning Maria-Elena made us a delicious breakfast that lasted several days. Jose took me to Mombacho Volcano and we even saw a sloth in the forest. The location is perfect and a short walk to the center of Granada. I would highly recommend this home for everyone. Don't miss a visit to the tortilla lady in Parque Central or a class at the Chocolate Museum down the street. The lady gets there around 5:00 and makes the most delicious tortillas with Nica cheese. It was our appetizer almost every night. The photos on the website is exactly what you get. Thank you Richard and Trudy for sharing your beautiful home!

The best way to see Granada is from Casa Gallo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Gallo with our two teenagers for a week. They couldn't believe that there weren't other guests sharing the huge and comfortable outdoor space with us. The pool and garden are beautiful and well maintained. We felt like royalty! We would get out in the morning and tour all day and come back by three or four and enjoy cooling off in the pool or relaxing in the air conditioned rooms. Jose and Maria Elena did an amazing job of taking care of the house and our family. Jose is personable, patient with our broken Spanish, and a tremendous guide. He made suggestions and assisted us in seeing all the sights and activities we chose. Maria Elena is a wonderful cook and just as charming as her husband. When we return to Granada we will certainly stay here again and we highly recommend it to other travelers.

Engaging Granada

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable, spacious home, lovingly restored and very well maintained, with all amenities. The art and music collections add to guests' enjoyment. The indoor/outdoor living areas with gardens and plenty of seating invite relaxation. Make good use of the hammocks! Jose and Marie Elena are helpful and accommodating as well as discreet. Be sure to sample Marie Elena's local cuisine as well as taking the great recommendations of the owners for local bars and restaurants within walking distance. You will not be disappointed and will want to plan a return visit.

Wow, the perfect place to stay in Granada!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful classic Spanish Colonial house. The house has been very tastefully done with local flair, the courtyard with the lovely tropical landscaping and pool were phenomenal. The location was great, close enough to town to walk, although we had a rent car and there was indoor covered parking. Jose and Maria Elena were very sweet and helpful and fun to talk to. I would highly recommend this villa for anyone who wants to enjoy the pretty city of Granada. There were only the two of us that stayed here for a week, but the house is definately big enough for a large family to enjoy. Just enjoying the house was one of the big highlights of our trip. Would definately stay here again. Thank you, Richard and Trudy for sharing your gorgeous home with us.
