About Lubna & Nicolai
We are a couple from NY in the beauty business. We love to travel and stumbled upon Granada, Nicaragua during our travels through Central America. We instantly fell in love with the city and know you will too.
Lubna & Nicolai purchased this House in 2014
Why Lubna & Nicolai chose Granada
We fell in love with the Spanish colonial charm of Granada the minute we stepped foot into this magical city. Colonial homes with indoor open courtyards and tropical gardens, amazing resturaunts, nightlife, museums and a prime location on Lake Nicaragua. Granada has it all. You can spend the day on the lake, go for a hike on nearby volcanos, be pampered with massages and fine dining, explore the pre-Columbian history, take a horse carriage ride through the charming colonial streets, party all night, or just relax at a cafe or by your private pool on the hammock. We hope you will fall in love with Granada the way we did. Enough to buy and create a beautiful home here with the colonial charm and all the modern comfort and amenities.
What makes this House unique
We have taken care to create the most beautiful space with attention to every detail. The house was built new yet has all the elements of a colonial home. Beautiful handmade Nicaraguan tile floors, high cane ceilings, solid wood columns and an indoor-outdoor living style. The location is central, just a few minutes walking from all the main Granada attractions.
Smoking Only in Outdoor Areas Please
Please treat our home with love and respect.

Perfect colonial home in Granada
Very nice property, updated, yet traditional. It had a great view of Mombacho. The breezes were great. We enjoyed our time very much.
Very Nice Weekend Getaway
The house is nice for a weekend getaway. It is a close
Walk from the center of everything. The pool is great for cooling off and the kitchen is well appointed for cooking meals. The WiFi functioned and was a nice touch.
A few maintenance items need to be addressed: the washer has a sketchy set of makeshift controls that are hard to figure out (we needed to wash towels as there weren't many provided). The shower and a/c in the master suite did not work through our entire stay and the upstairs hammock hangs too close to the ground to use.
Family of 4 w/ 2 kids (8 and 5) highly recommend this house.
Plus - Great house, central location easy pick/up drop off of keys, nice housekeeper, kitchen that actually had some cooking basics (spices, etc), book of local recommendations, working A/C units, water and power was fine for us. Also management was very responsive to requests and returned deposit within 2 days.
Negative - nothing to do w/ the house but be warned the locals love to set off fireworks all night and early morning. Bring your earplugs.
100% recommend. Book it if available.
Casa Uzma is a beautiful house. The garden and pool are delightful, the upstairs balcony has a stunning view of the Mombacho volcano. The house is well located within easy walking distance of the city center. Unfortunately when I stayed there for the month of August, 2015 there was no water in the house each and every day until mid afternoon. This is because the back-up water system in this house does not work. The owners need to install a pump to fill the water tank on the roof. There is not sufficient water pressure for the tank to fill without a pump, and as of August 2015 there is no pump. I was forced to shower in the morning using a bucket of cold water, which I had to fill each night. Before you rent this house, which is quite expensive, I recommend you make sure this problem has been corrected. The house could be improved by getting a more powerful WIFI, a microwave oven, cloths pins and a can opener.
We are sorry for your inconvenience as this is the first time this has ever happened with a renter. Unfortunately, the city of Granada is having a water issue in the entire city over the last month and you came during that time.
Our water backup system is top of the line but water is needed to fill it.
As of the writing of this response, the water in the house was working perfectly fine.
A house in Granada that we have already recommended to friends
We booked our stay with very short notice. The owners were quick to respond. Casa Uzma is beautiful. It has a lovely view of Volcano Mombacho from the balcony. The house is a close walk from the town square. There are many short day trips nearby. We found our stay to be very comfortable and relaxing for our family of 4. Even our teens were pleased.
Can't wait to return again one day!
Fantastic Housing Option for Granada
We stayed at Casa Uzma for 2 nights while visiting Nicaragua. The home is beautifully designed and extremely comfortable and relaxing. It also is perfectly located for exploring Granada. We highly recommend Casa Uzma. We can't wait to come back!
