Overview

Managua House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom, sleeps 12

Short 45 minute drive from Managua. Beautifully perched on a hill on the beach, about 30 steps to go down to the beach. The pool has great panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.

The house is very modern, with a blue and white decor throughout… The house had some decks and new stairway built in 2013. Very relaxing setting, with no loud neighbors.

Picture deceiving.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival late in the evening, the staff seemed disgruntled as they said they had been waiting for us for 2 days, I am not sure why because we arrived on our scheduled arrival date. As for the house, pictures can be deceiving, the home needs a lot of TLC. The ad says there is a dryer but it does not exist. One of the scary things is that you cannot lock the exterior doors from the inside, the caretaker has to lock you in the house at night. The floor on the upstairs balcony was buckled and had broken tiles that someone could trip on. There was a swing by the pool which was not stable and actually fell over once. The railings around the pool were missing, the railing and stairs going down to the beach were an item for a law suit. Steps were shaky, in fact one broke when I stepped on it because it was so rotted. The caretaker fixed it the next day. Hand railings were missing, the last step was a jump to the bottom and then you needed assistance to get back up. We only went down to the beach one day because of this. The toilet in the master bath was leaking and it could not be fixed. There was a major problem with ants and we all were bitten until the caretakers sprayed. In the pictures they showed great outdoor beds and hammocks but they were not there. If it were not for Gary and Virginia the caretakers, we may not have stayed. They saw to our needs as well as they could. They also cooked for us for a very small fee and it was outstanding. Gary took us around to purchase fresh fish and what ever else we needed. There is basically only one restaurant in the town. The owner was hard to deal with as she does not did not speak very good English but in the ad it says she does. The location was good as it was the last house on the street. It has beautiful beach views and sunsets.

An unforgettable vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this house for two weeks. We loved this house! It is amazing!! It is not only a beautiful property but it also offers all the comfort you need to enjoy your vacation away from home such as, full housekeeping services, infinity pool, security, air conditioning, satellite, wifi and a beautiful, well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are huge with high-ceiling fans and air-conditioner. The home’s décor is very stylish, classy and elegant; I loved the fact that the property also displays beautiful local art.

The Housekeepers are very professional with the service they provide, they keep the house spotless at all times! They live in a small unit, within the property but, they give you privacy unless, you need them. I should point out that, their job is limited to the maintenance and care of the property, not necessarily to serve people, they are not maids but, according to the owner, are the available to help and arrangements can be made with them if needed.

I brought my 3 children ages between 13-21 and they felt so comfortable in the house and did not whine about needing or missing anything from home :) the weather was amazing, and we did not experience any rain, bright and shine every single day with a minimum of 25 degrees! Gorgeous sunset, birds chirping, the sound of the waves, and the smell of “carne asada” ahh…and don’t forget, the delightful drinks of “Flor de Cana” by the pool… What else can you ask for?

The only thing I would say is, to keep in mind that the beach is not very accessible still and is very steep; the steps need to be re-done as in my opinion, they are unsafe. The very last step is very high and you would need to jump in order to get to the sand and this may be an barrier for people with mobility issues but, you can also visit the beaches of Masachapa and Pochomill and mingle with the locals, a wonderful experience! Other than that, is a great place for your family vacation, I would recommend it in a heartbeat! ...What are you waiting for? Enjoy!! 

Thank you Gioconda for your wonderful hospitality and the wonderful memories my family and I shared during our stay at your house.

Greece heaven

  • 3 of 5

We did stay at this gorgeous house while visiting family in Nicaragua, the decor was beautiful and the caretaker people always willing to help and keep us safe.

The only horrible thing that happened there was an invasion of flies all OVER the house we could not put a drink down because flies would take over, same thing with food, we end up wasting lots of food. Few of us were sick with stomach flu. None of the windows or doors have screen in them, so at night we were force to turn the air conditioning at our own expenses.

Thanks, Karla

Heavenly!!!

  • 5 of 5

I LOVE this house! Location was perfect! We had stayed at Montilemar for the last several years while visiting family in Managua and it does not begin to compare to this home! The ocean is so close that it actually woke us up in the night. I've been a realtor for the last 21 years in the Atlanta, Ga area and I love the floorplan of this house. The help was wonderful, there if you need them, invisible if you don't. The great thing about this house is that it has an enclosed dining and living room which are air conditioned so should you get hot by the pool, you don't have to go in a bedroom to be cool. Just can't say enough! We are planning to return. Great stay!

One of my Wonders of theWorld!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic! pictures speak little to the feeling we experience in this house. From day one that I contacted the owner, she made the transaction easy. simple e-payment transfer, couple of e-mails and there we were infinity pool with a cold Toña(beer) on the side. Care takers are as you want them, you let them serve you as you ask: if privacy is your thing they disapear, if you like to be pamper they took care of every detail,(pandora radio over Bose outdoor speaker system while you swim).they Know their way around(connections) cheap fresh sea food,booze,horse rental etc.just ask. Amenities were actually better them at home, everything a large family needs to cook and entertain is available. Bedrooms with private bathrooms. We really want to know who design this gem. Overall we are in love with this property. I'm starting to plan my next vacation to pochomil. If you have the buena suerte to stay at this beach house look for a beautiful green iguana the sunbathes on the deck or hides on the bushes, also take binoculars so you can watch the fisherman during the cool evenings or late at night. Enjoy!
