About the property

This charming villa sits 30 meters above sea level and offers 3 700 ft² of living space. Its location, overlooking the Pacific Ocean is simply breathtaking.

Kanata has a modern, clean, elegant architecture which offers a magnificent ocean view.

The practical fully equipped kitchen faces the ocean. Beautiful French doors open unto a terrace ideal for morning breakfast, afternoon drinks o sunbathing while listening to the waves crash on the rocks below. Sunsets are a highlight not to be missed.

A tropical garden will enchant you with its array of tropical plants and colorful flowers.

The self-contained villa offers tranquility, security and total privacy. Located 300 meters from the village of La Boquita, where fishermen following ancestral traditions venture into the sea in the afternoons to return with fresh fish in the morning for their own sustenance and to cater to tourists.

The discreet in-house keepers retire into their living quarters and are ready to cater to your needs, house cleaning and kitchen tasks.

Kanata comes fully equipped and furnished. The master bedroom has a walking closet and full bathroom. Three adjoining bedrooms share a full bathroom and a powder room.

We invite you to come and enjoy a wonderful vacation in this unspoiled land.

About The Owner

I am a civil engineer working overseas. I have built this villa with the intention of retiring in my beautiful country. As a nature lover, I have planted lush tropical plants to balance out the ocean immensity. As an amateur chef, I decided to build the kitchen right in front of the ocean and have french windows in order to enjoy the horizon.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose Carazo

Every time I come down to this villa, I disconnect from my daily routine and let the sea breeze and the sea waves envelop me. This property is very private, secure, tranquil and comfortable. When I gave my architect the mandate to build the house I specified the requirement to be able to have an ocean view from every room. The innkeepers are experienced with guests from overseas and will do the necessary to satisfy your needs. If you desire to entertain friends, a bar has been added to the living room for beverages and appetizers to be served. Hamacs are provided to enjoy a siesta o indulge in your favorite books.

Amazing Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

Kanata was an excellent choice for our vacation. The property is beautiful and well kept. It provides the most amazing views during the day and the sound of the ocean waves crashing against the rocks will help you relax and have a wonderful sleep at night. Our kids loved the natural salt water pools to swim and for the many fish, crabs and other sea creatures.

The in-house care takers (Maria and Hersis) are friendly and trustworthy and tried their best to insure our stay was as comfortable as possible.

The owner (Alberto) was very professional and accomodating. He responded to all of my questions promptly.

Wonderful place to stay in La Boquita!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful ocean front property. We loved the constant sound and views of the ocean, and that the village of La Boquita was only a few minute walk away. The house was spacious, clean, and accommodating for the 4 of us--2 adults and 2 teenagers. This was our first time in Nicaragua, and the transition was made smooth and easy thanks to Maria's and Hercies' assistance. From helping us figure out the local buses to helping us find fresh fish and groceries, we are very thankful for Maria and Hercies patience and presence. We would certainly stay there again if we're ever fortunate enough to return.

The Ides of April

  • 1 of 5

Ah, La Boquita..

I had to review as our experience was so different than the other reviews here..

My brother and his family, myself and my daughter, came to Kanata for some deserved relaxation, catching up and adventuring a new country. Nicaragua is a beautiful, totally worth - it place to see. People are amazing, so safe, and diverse experiences abound. The weather was perfect and hot every day, however meant there was a shortage of water throughout the country as well. Although we were gone for 8 days, the home nearly ran out of water twice and we had to conserve water greatly for the majority of the month. Despite this, the housekeeper would water the gardens often at 5:30-6:00am, waking us up with no regard. If she didn't water that day, it was sweeping the tile floors at the same time in the morning, right in front of the bedrooms. The housekeepers often had people over, at first no big deal, however when it's daily and in your space you were supposed to have rented...it became uncomfortable and made us feel like we had roommates. It also felt like we had supervisors that were judging if we had a drink in the afternoon-weird feeling.

Toby, the dog...at first friendly, shortly annoying. Bit our children (not severely but broke skin) twice and peed on the floor, no attempt from the housekeepers to keep him away from our areas. Meanwhile we maintained politeness with them and asked Hersey if he could purchase some lobsters and prawns for us, as that was the word that he didn't mind doing this for visitors. We tipped him for this, all seemed well, however he complained to the owner after we left that we did not tip..?

Despite what the ad says, there was no attempt for laundry to be done for us, we hand-washed 7 ppl worth of laundry. We felt like had it been offered, we would have gladly accepted the help and then paid for the service, however there was no offer.

The oven doesn't work and the house is a sauna with no air conditioning or air flow. If you bring children beware, as they kept our damage deposit for a few missing pieces of a Walmart chessboard, and two cheap cups that fell onto the tile floor.

The beach and town are incredible here, and Kanata is beautiful, however I feel there are better places to stay in this area if you don't want roommates and want your deposit back.

We had an amazing time in La Boquita, and in the rest of the country, and hope yours is as well.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you were seduced by the beauty of my country even though your passage by my villa, was much less remarkable. I have been in this business for 6 years and I was sure that sooner or later I was going to come across someone that did not appreciate his/her experience in Kanata. I have addressed the problem with the dog, the over enthusiasm with the house cleaning in the morning and the visits to my personnel when there are guests in the premises, whether they are founded or not. I would also like to explain the reasons why the deposit of about 150.00 $US was retained. Firstly, it is true that my chess game was moderately priced (40 $US), but that is not the issue. It could be a 1 dollar article, however we have to educate our children to respect; it is not because it is cheap, that they are allowed to misplace the pieces. Secondly, the microwave oven was no longer functioning at your departure. A new party came and we had to go and get a new one. My personnel mentioned the fact that you used to operate the blender on top of it, luckily you did not have a short circuit. Thirdly, several cups and plates were broken. No matter how expensive they are, you have to understand that I am opening the door of my house for your family to use, and you have to do your best to keep it intact. Actually, I do not mind if an accident happens, it is normal and acceptable. However, I takes me aback that something like this has never happened in the 6 years that I have been in the business. The fact that you are paying me 51.00 $US dollars per night for your whole family, does not give you the right to break havoc in the place. Finally, Hersis and Maria did everything they could, like they have done for the previous parties, babysat your young children when you went to the village at night, lend you their phone which is rather expensive for their budget and all other services that my previous guests mentioned and appreciated. And you did not have the courtesy of leaving them a tip, no matter how small. That does not strike the best notes in the civilized scale. And, this site VRBO, have asked me to rate you as a client and let me tell you, I did not evaluate you as the best to have. I wish you continue with your trip and hope you show a little more respect to the country, their people and their property.

Beautiful Ocean Front Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a one month vacation at the beautiful villa Kanata in La Boquita. The accomodations were beyond out expectations, the owner Alberto can be commended on his design and the thought put into the layout and amenities in the villa. Anything and everything needed was provided in the well appointed kitchen, as well as all of the necessary linens and towels etc.

The open concept of the villa provides for beautiful views of the ocean and the village of La Boquita. I already miss the stunning sunsets and the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks, enjoyed daily while relaxing in the hammocks or rocking chairs.

It was also much appreciated to be met at the airport by Maria and Alberto's mama who not only led us to the villa, but helped us with out initial grocery shopping. That was a nice touch, and both were very gracious and helpful. During the booking process and afterward, all of our questions were answered promptly which was also appreciated as this was our first vacation booking through VRBO.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful in-house caretakers Maria and Hersis. The would do anything and everything possible to ensure your stay was perfect, always in a most discreet manner. Maria's cooking was amazing and we enjoyed many traditional dinners, and although our Spanish is limited, we always managed to ensure that we had the necessary ingredients. On a number of occasions, Hersis went into town in the very early morning to negotiate the purchase of fresh fish for dinner -- which was excellently prepared by Maria. And as busy as Maria always was taking meticulous care of the villa, our laundry was always miraculously attended to. They were a very enjoyable part of our vacation!

We visited many beautiful sights in Nicaragua, spending time in Granada, San Juan Del Sur, Masaya, Leon, Matagulpa, and Caterina to name a few -- all highly recommended. As this location is somewhat remote, I would recommend a car or driver. All in all we had a wonderful vacation at Kanata and I would not hesitate to return to this lovely ocean front villa. We look forward to visiting Nicaragua and perhaps La Boquita again in the future.

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Quiñonez for openning and sharing his villa - Casa Kanata with us.

Mr. Quiñonez, the owner has a wonderful family as caretakers who are constantly asking if there is anything that they can help with or do for us. They are very friendly and trustworthy. Esmir and Maria were barely noticeable during all of our stay because they are very discreet and quiet.

Casa Kanata has an amazing ocean view where you can see the local town of La Boquita. The house is fully equipped from the bedrooms all the way to the kitchen and bathrooms.

The house has a main bedroom with a beautiful private bathrrom and a baywindow where you can see the endless ocean and feel the ocean breeze. The extended front facing veranda welcomes you with rocking chairs and a few steps up is an open living area where Esmir hung hammocks which made it more relaxing.

Casa Kanata makes an esplendid option for a vacation home.
