About Edward & Carmen Cole

Semi-retired Canadian meets Nicaraguan lady and falls in love with girl and country. Simply put! This spectacular beach house was our retirement present, but all our travelling allows us to share this special place with others. It is too nice to keep to ourselves!

Edward & Carmen Cole purchased this estate in 2008

Why Edward & Carmen Cole chose Managua

This is the closest you will ever get to the big city conveniences on the beach in the whole country with surfaced roads virtually all the way from the airport to our door while living the high profile leisure life of being spoiled by expert staff and having your own private resort to yourself.

What makes this estate unique

The spectacular views from every place in the house, will give you the sensation of being on a cruise ship and at the same time you are only a few steps away from the beach, water falls and natural pool surrounded by rocks where you and your kids can swim safely, all this natural beauty is located at walking distance from our beach home

Beautiful, relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property over our Thanksgiving holiday. We visited with our family of 5 and had a great time playing on the beach. The rock formations there are so unique, and my kids had a lot of fun in the small pools formed by the rocks (and also enjoyed climbing).

The property itself is stunning....beautiful views across a private pool to a beach that almost feels private at times. Perfect beach house furnishings/decor, comfy beds, updated bathrooms, a beautiful outdoor shower...heaven! :). Being taken care of by Sara and her family was also wonderful. Not having to worry about food on vacation is a rare treat, and Sara made us a delicious seafood paella for our Thanksgiving meal.

Carmen and Ted were outstanding hosts and they spent a lot of time helping us with the logistics of travel to Nica, recommending possible day trip iteneraries, and answering any questions we had. We had a lot of fun on a day trip that Carmen suggested traveling to Grenada, seeing the active volcano, etc.

The favorite for our children was renting ATVs and driving them up and down the beach. SO MUCH FUN!

A unique experience for our family that we will keep in our hearts! Thank you!

Loved our stay at Villa Coleli

  • 5 of 5

The home is amazing, the view of the ocean from the living area, pool and decks is dreamlike. Loved hearing the sound of the waves throughout the house. Pictures of the home are accurate; home is clean, well furnished and was great for our stay. Sarah's cooking was phenomenal, William was so helpful as well. Would highly recommend if you are looking to get away from busy beaches and want a peaceful getaway on the beach.

This is our family's third trip to Pohomil and hands down this was the best house we have rented! The owners were easy to deal with. I would recommend taking advantage of the transportation service that is offered. We had a large air conditioned van that picked us up in Managua, where we stopped to grab groceries before heading out to the beach. We also used the driver another day to take us sightseeing. As you enter this home, be prepared to have your breath taken away!!! It is truly paradise. The rooms have been updated from the pictures online. We were traveling with our three kids, ages 13,10 and 9, and were happy to find that there were 3 queen sized beds in their room. (a brand new set of queen bunks, in addition to a single queen.) Not only do you get this amazing home, but you get Sara and her husband William to take care of you. As the other reviews state, Sara is an amazing chef. Be sure to take advantage of heading over to Mastachapa early morning with William to get fresh fish. He knows who to buy from and will get you the best price. We had lobster, shrimp, red snapper, octopus... and if you ask, Sara will share her cooking "secrets". The kitchen was very clean and there is also a grill outside. The kids loved the pool and even though it was 97 and sunny every day, it never felt "hot". The home is open and there is always an comforting breeze. There is a set of stairs that take you from the pool area down to a lush green tropical shaded area with hammocks perfect for enjoying a good book or getting a massage. From there you are steps away from the beach. William entertained the kids by supplying them with fresh coconuts every morning. And on our last night, he light a fire on the beach and we toasted marshmallows under a star filled sky. The beach is our favorite with areas where there are rock formations that create "pools" when the tide is out. It is on the quiet side, perfect if you are just looking to enjoy some family time or just need to get away from it all. My kids never complained of being "bored" and even though the home has two flat screened tv's with cable in English and Spanish, we never turned them on. The owners have thought of everything to ensure you have a pleasurable vacation, including providing luxury towels, soaps and lotions, reading materials... We enjoyed afternoons of horseback riding, and riding tv's, all which are easily arranged by Sara. We will be sure to return to this paradise.

Spectacular house. Amazing staff.

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time here. House is gorgeous. Sarah is a great cook. William took great care of us on excursions in to the mountains and riding ATVs on the beach. Great fun to hire a boat and catch snapper for dinner. Great experience. Highly recommended.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property, very clean and well maintained as well! The house is very well stocked in all aspects, beach towels and mosquito repellent and sunscreen all there (I suggest you bring your own because I don't think it's fair to use theirs but if you forget it, you are covered until you get your own), shampoo, conditioner, even a sound system that you can connect to via BlueTooth or an AUX cable to play your music. I love to cook so I was glad to find the kitchen had everything I needed! The Owners were great at answering our questions prior to the trip and up until the day we flew in. The pictures of this house do not do it justice. Beautifully decorated, amazing views and the on-property staff were great. William and Sara were on hand to find us whatever we requested, from ATV's/Polaris, to freshly caught fish, massages, manicures/pedicures, horses! We always found something to do. If we just wanted to relax in the house, we still had the beautiful views and the kids had a great time in the pool. The location is close enough to Managua and other small towns that we took a half day off from the beach and went shopping in the small towns like Masaya and Catarina for the wonderful handcrafted hammocks and handbags!

Here you will find the lifestyle of the rich and famous amongst Nicaragua's finest estates. This small bay offers one of the rarest and most spectacular locations along the entire Nicaraguan coast. It is nearly impossible to find an estate with an unobstructed elevated ocean panorama from nearly every room, terrace and pool, plus! to have a complete separate beach level palapa retreat with wet bar and BBQ, surrounded by cool shade from coconut palms and fruit trees, pampered by our staff, great cook, hammocks and more, just 50 feet from the high tide line, is usually only available at the best resorts. Here you have it all to yourself. Outside the front gate and 200 mts away are the famous cortinas where warm water surge overhead at high tide. 40 minute walk to best fresh catch direct from the fishermen. Quads are readily available to rent on the beach. The town offers most services but you are 55 minutes from Int'l airport,40 min from Managua, & 5 minutes to closest full service town

Other Activities: quading, local market and shops, casino, disco, read, eat, surf, drink and relax

Golf: There is a golf course at the Gran Pacifica Resort only a 30km drive by road (20km along the beach) where there is a recently finished golf course. No need to worry about clubs, there a lots of rentals on site. Would make a good day trip to add to your vacation and offers a totally different coastiline. There is a good restaurant only a few feet from the ocean offering some nice Ocean Vistas.

The next closest completed golf course is the Nejapa Golf & Country Club in Managua. It is a beautiful mature tricky little course that offers some beautiful scenery. Please do not hesitate to ask to have a day trip set up for you with a driver should you want to partake.
