Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 4-13)- BB internet

Granada city, once known as “La Gran Sultana” because of its beauty and location on the lake, is just the right spot for “Casa La Gran Sultana”. This home is located 2 blocks from the Parque Central and is walking distance from popular restaurants, shops and museums. The home was totally rebuilt in 2002, maintaining the colonial style. In august 2011, a pool was added into the patio of the house and integrated into the fountain that was previously installed. The result is just great! The garden has been rebuilt completely.

Casa La Gran Sultana is definitely “GRAND”. From the street, whenever you open one of the 2 antique double door, you get first to a huge “saguan” with a first set of rocking chairs. This room is used to receive people from outside or take the fresh air coming from the lake at sunset.

Once the door is closed, the noise from the street recedes and you get into a wide 3 fold corridor around the garden.

Note: one of the 2 doors to the street provides a confortable access & Parking for a 4x4 or van.

The main corridor which brings you to the center of the house is equipped with additional seating facing the pool and hammocks between the exotic wooden pilars. The garden is full of tropical plants and a magnificent mango tree provides a good shadow. At 6am in the morning, whenever the city awakes and the sun appears this is the place to be, as the birds (including humming birds) are flying over to drink.

The left side corridor is equipped with the internet and TV set, the right one hosts the main diner table.

The kitchen is located at the center of the home between the two outer gardens. It is spacious and has everything you need to prepare a meal or just a simple snack.

A room is located on the main floor with an exit on the patio. A bathroom is on the back of the room. A dormitory bedroom is located in the back garden area with 3 to 4 beds.

Upstairs on the balcony the view is spectacular on the roofs of the surrounding houses. The two large bedrooms open onto the patio. The master bedroom has a private bath, king bed and large closet. The second upstairs room has a private bath, one full bed and a twin bed. The antique wood staircase and wood floors are not only beautiful but will take you back in time when things were a bit simpler.

4 bedrooms have aircon.

Important: There is a water tank at the back of the house to ensure a smooth in-house water-supply.

About The Owner

I am French. Back in 1985, I spent 18 months in Nicaragua, working to develop alternative energy sourcing in Ometepe, the main island in the Nicaragua lake. In 1988 I married a Granada young lady, and 5 children came. Since then we come back whenever we can.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Granada

Activities to do there: Go to market at sunrise, go to the barber 'Agustin' close by Gonper Library: a unique experience. Many daytrips around the city.

What makes this house unique

Go to the ocean. Trek or experience a canopy tour in a coffee farm in the Montbacho volcano just outside the city . Enjoy a drink at 'Casa de los 3 mundos'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was fabulous. You have so much privacy, but you are really about a one minute walk from the central park in Granada. The location alone makes this place worth every penny, but the house is beautiful too. Everything is very clean, and Bhelia the property manager was so friendly and helpful. Everyone was a pleasure to deal with. This place will ensure a great stay in Granada!

Plenty of room and that authentic Granada home feel. Thanks again!

great vacation property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the casa with three other friends, but sadly, we had to leave three weeks after arriving due to a medical issue. Our friends remained. We were very impressed with the property and enjoyed the amenities, especially the pool on every hot, humid day. The casa was spacious and relaxing with plenty of room for privacy. We ate most meals in so the kitchen facilities were adequate. A BBQ outside would have been a real bonus. We got to know the family of the owner and they went above and beyond in helping us to make travel arrangements, get bottled water and ultimately, helping us during a stressful period of hospitalization. They offered a great deal of valued advice and even drove us to the hospital on two occasions then visited my husband later in the Managua hospital. We would recommend this property for anyone wishing to visit Granada. The location was great for walking around and seeing the town.

I couldn't ask for a better location or property for my group of 13. The house is centrally located between the Mercado principal and the more upscale shopping center "La Colonia". Everything is within a few short blocks. The property is well maintained and has ample room for larger groups. I never felt cramped despite having 11 teens with me. The master suite is spacious and private giving me a place to myself. I am already looking forward to my next visit.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled to Granada, Nicaragua every summer for the last four years and have rented a variety of properties for my group of 13. This past summer I finally found the perfect location for my group of teens. I spent 4 weeks at the Casa la Gran Sultana and I felt like I was home. The house is perfectly located on a quiet side street yet everything is within a few blocks walking distance, the Central Market or the more upscale grocery store, the main square, the tourist street, the lake and many other attractions. The house is spacious with plenty of room for our group to gather together for meetings and activities or to find solitude from each other. I would recommend this house for large groups looking for a safe, comfortable and convenient location. La Casa la Gran Sultana will be my "home away from home" when I travel to Granada.

A very nice come back in Granada in this house

  • 5 of 5

We are from France, we lived in Nicaragua 15 years ago for 2 years and keep a very special link with this incredible Nicaragua and moreover the city of Granada! We come back to meet our friends after 5 years: Granada is just the same place as we first met and La Gran Sultana is the perfect place to do that:

- it is right in the center, no need to take your car to have diner outside or to go to main square just to have a delicious juice and look around

- the house is well isolated from the noise of the city and you dont feel in the center. There is not much cars passing in the street, there is a small hotel just in front so it is well secured 24h a day.

- the house is huge, a lot of space on top of your head and in front of you: 2 patios, beautiful tropical trees and plants around the pool, even if the space isopen, you can have a true rest independantly from what the other relatives are doing.

Well, we felt at home @ "La Gran Sultana", so no doubt we will come back!

Additional information about rental rates

Rates are subject to changes until renting is confirmed.
In the renting price is included an electricity amount of 12US$/day. Over that amount, we will ask you to pay the difference. We do that because electricity is scarce in Nicaragua and extremely expensive, and this is the only way to get people aware and reasonable.
At entering the house, you will be asked to make a cash deposit of 300US$. This deposit will be returned whenever you leave the house, unless there is something broken in the house or extra consumption of electricity.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
