A 6,000 sq ft restored colonial villa, w/ pool, in the heart of Granada.

Simply the best home in Granada. A gorgeous and unique 6,000 sq. ft. 5 bedroom colonial villa in the heart of town and the showcase of Granada's colonial house walking tour. Built in the 1750s and given a 2-year loving restoration to preserve original architectural details and integrate modern amenities, the villa has a lush central courtyard with a 40' long pool to cool off on hot afternoons.

The fifth bedroom located beyond the kitchen on the ground floor is suitable for a live in nanny or maid and has a single bed, private bathroom, fridge and TV. The living areas are organised around the extensive corridors. The main corridor features an antique rocking chair and coffee table set comfortably laid out beneath a powerful ceiling fan.

Why Guillermo Suescum chose Nicaragua

This is really a special place. It was built in the 1750s and is one of the oldest buildings in Granada. It underwent a 3-year restoration to bring it back to it's original splendor. The house has original floors, ceilings and doors dating back to it's construction along with all the modern amenities one would need.

What makes this villa unique

Centrally located. Just one block off the main park. Casa Blanca is tucked in behind the town's main cathedral and on Granada's main pedestrian street and restaurant row, Calle Calzada. The house has the traditional colonial design with a central courtyard full of beautiful tropical plants and a deep and cool 40 ft long swimming pool. Once you step into the house, you're in your own little private paradise.

A beautiful house in a great location in the heart of Granada

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 :2 sisters with each a family of 4 (with young adults) and our parents .

The house was perfect. Each couple had their own room with private bath and the kids shared the family suite which was perfect. The house is big enough that we can either sit together or split up in the different salons so to have our private time if we wish to. I have to mention the beautiful wooden table in the dining space that can easily sit 12 people at a time and has the view of the pool, plants and flowers of the grounds . The pictures don't do the house justice. You have to see it to a appreciate it. Also Guadeloupe, makes sure that the house stays clean and tidy.

The house is greatly situated in the heart of Granada. A couple of steps from Parque Central and the Cathedrale and at the beginning of the pedestrian street « La calle La Calzada". The latter was great for our young adults that could go out and chill at the many small bars and terrasses near by.

We staid 4 days, and had time to do the many activities that are around (boat trip to the islas, apoyo lagoon, Masaya volcano, Masaya market , Los Pueblos Blancos, the Catarina mirador and just walking and appreciating the beauty of Granada). Activities that were suggested by Guillermo.

Coming back to the house and just lazing in the pool was an absolute must. This just added a bonus to our days. Not to mention that when you are in the pool you have a view of the dome of the Cathedrale. Breathless!!!

Do not hesited a moment renting this house and if you want some advice, rent it longer that we did. ;-)

Beautiful Colonial house in Granada.

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the nicest homes in Granada. It is very large and extremely well designed. The renovation is given the house all of the necessary modern conveniences and the quality of the management and the housekeeping is superb. Guillermo is an extremely responsible owner who maintains excellent communication throughout the rental process. The attention to detail in the house indicates someone with a very fine architectural and design eye. The kitchen is stocked with all necessary silverware and cooking ware for a good size group. Having purified ice is of great convenience in the refrigerator. We did have an air conditioning unit go down on a Sunday and the after hours staff was able to bring in a repair technician within several hours to get the unit working again. It was an example of a well functioning management group. There is parking for one small car in the house garage but otherwise parking is a bit of a hassle in Granada. We elected to use supervised indoor parking near the house for our vehicles. You are right in the center of town and there are many eating and entertainment options available. The cost and quality of the accommodation compares very favorably to a hotel when you have a larger group. I cannot recommend the Casablanca enough to someone who is visiting Granada Nicaragua.

Second time's a charm too

  • 5 of 5

This visit was the second time we have stayed in Casa Blanca. Our first visit was almost two years ago. We thought the house was spectacular then, and it still is. The property is meticulously maintained and the open courtyard is more lush than before. We are a group of 4 friends (men) who travel regularly to Nicaragua to get away from the hustle and bustle of the good old USA. On past trips we have enjoyed boat tours, exploring the countryside, markets, etc. often each going our own way. This time we spent most of our visit enjoying the house and la calle la Calzada (Gringo Street) right outside our door. The pool is spotless and got multiple uses each day. Guadalupe, the housekeeper/onsite manager, keeps the floors, bathrooms, bedrooms, furniture, appliances all squeaky clean. The rental management agency, GPS, was extremely responsive to our needs and is right across the street. We had difficulty with one of the front locks and after they looked at it, it was replaced in less than an hour, which included cutting the lock out of the metal gate and welding a new one in and repainting everything to match. They even keyed the new lock to our keys. The owners Guillermo and Melanie have a gem of a house that we will return to every visit to Granada.

Drawn by year-round warm weather, colonial-era architecture and the freshwater Lake Nicaragua, travelers from around the world are flocking to Granada. Eco-tourists will love visiting the dormant Mombacho volcano, sailing on the lake and ziplining through the trees. Fans of spa treatments and shopping will find plenty to do, too.

Nicaragua travel tops the New York Times’ best in travel for 2013. Ranked third out of forty-six select destinations, Nicaragua made it to the top of the list. Nicaragua is a country of thriving culture, history, wildlife and boasts a landscape dominated by pristine rainforest and miles & miles of serene sandy shoreline. Its avenue of volcanoes is stunning and protected by national parks. Conscious of their natural treasures, “eco” is both practiced and preached in Nicaragua. Nicaragua Lake is vast; it rivals that of Lake Titicaca in its beauty and grandeur. The lake’s Ometepe Island is the largest freshwater island in the world. It is composed of two volcanoes and an isthmus that connects them. Hiking here is a must. Beyond its natural features, Nicaragua’s nicest colonial city, Granada, offers great dining, exquisite cathedrals and museums from the Spanish era.
