About Tamara Philip

We live in the Pacific Northwest and love it...except the long wet and cold winters get very long, wet and cold. We were thinking about eventually finding a place to escape the winter weather when Casa de Sol found us! Even though this idea was 10 years off, we knew we would never find a place like Casa de Sol.

Since we are both still working and have a young family we decided to offer it as a vacation rental for now and eventually make it our 3-6 month home.

Tamara Philip purchased this house in 2005

Why Tamara Philip chose Granada

The natural beauty and tranquility make this a magical place!

What makes this house unique

Solitude, incredible views, natural beauty, accommodates a large group of friends and family.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is hands down one of the best rental homes in Nicaragua. It offers amazing views of the lagoon in a very private and serene setting. You also have 2 waterfront restaurants within walking distance. Day trips to Granada and Masaya are only 1/2 hour away. The house itself offers very high end finishes, very comfortable beds and cold ac in the bedrooms. The natural infinity pool is a dream overlooking the lagoon. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The only logistics you have to consider is to do a complete grocery shopping trip before arrival, as supplies are very limited in the immediate vicinity.

All in all, this property, amenities and location are 5 stars!

Thank you to the owner and staff for the amazing hospitality...we will be back!

Great multi-generation family holiday vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped out of the vehicle, we were all in love with the house, the pool, the lake and the view! We enjoyed our 4 days on Lake Apoyo and would definitely return!! Thanks for sharing your home with us. **Do take heed to the advice of 4 wheel drive to get up the drive way!!

Great Location and People

  • 5 of 5

The house is located right on the lake. Rooms are large and ther are three with views to the lake. All was clean and the house was well stocked with everything you will need.

We had a very restful visit that was made even better by the great staff that attends to the house.

We only wish that we could have stayed longer. Next time.

Idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of five family members (adults) stayed her in March for 10 days. We couldn't have asked for more comfortable, gorgeous house to base ourselves in. The private infinity pool was amazing, we spent many hours relaxing in it or the adjoining covered patio - the hammocks were great. The staff were very efficient, non-intrusive and sweet. It was very windy most of the time we were there, and we didn't notice any mosquitoes at all - just little gnats that would come in the windows at night if the light was left on. The A/C in the bedrooms was wonderful at night. One caveat - I would not be comfortable having small children here, there were drop offs and many places they could fall from. But for adults and older kids, it was so much fun!
