WHAT TO DO:
Relax. You’re on vacation. And you’ve chosen to stay at Casa Paloma, a fully restored colonial gem in a quiet, safe neighborhood in the heart of Granada, and featuring 20-foot ceilings, endless light and lake breezes.
Create. Cook breakfast with farm fresh eggs purchased from the Central Market just blocks away, or grill your perfect churrasco pool-side using ingredients from street vendors who will deliver right to your door.
Indulge. Sip cocktails and watch the hummingbirds by your garden pool while lounging in custom, locally handcrafted furniture and viewing stunning artworks by local artists.
Connect. Have to check in back home? Enjoy a striking 360-degree view that includes Volcan Mombacho, all of Granada's most important cathedrals, and the colonial splendor of Central Granada while utilizing the high-speed internet.
Luxuriate. Relax in the built-in seats in your brand-new pool while catching up on football—whether American or “futbol”—on the 46' flat-screen TV.
Play. Challenge your companions to a friendly board game in the magnificent sala.
Sleep in. Air conditioned extra-large bedrooms sleeping eight await you with hotel-quality linens.
Take a Break. Allow someone else to take care of you with our complimentary six-day-per-week cleaning service. If you just can’t help yourself, a brand-new washer and dryer is available for your use.
Explore. With Granada’s central square and the famous Calzada just a five-minute walk away, take advantage of all that Granada has to offer. If you’re more adventurous, allow our property manager and renowned tour guide extraordinaire show you the best of Granada and Nicaragua for a reasonable cost.
Help. Be generous and kind to the Nicaraguan people. And be kind to us by telling us what you think of our home: what you love and, even more importantly, what we can do better.
WHAT NOT TO DO:
Worry. Your visit to Granada will exceed all expectations.
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.
