Natural Beauty, stylish dwelling

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous property! Three bedrooms with three en suites. We were three couples and were very comfortable. Air conditioner worked very well. The house was bright and airy. We grilled fish that we bought from passing fishermen. We swung in the hammocks and adventured out in the kayaks. Ideal escape into nature. Well-equipped kitchen and house. I would highly recommend it.

A whole island to yourself

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in countless Airbnb and VRBO properties, this one takes it all. The property itself was beautiful, but the views surrounding this island is out of magazine. My son would often stay "mom this whole beautiful island is just for us?" Luckily, I would reply yes. Furthermore, the staff was exceptional: Roberto, Sebastian and the lady were gracious and kind. If you needed help with anything they would help you with a smile.

The property comes with kayaks and you have a restaurant 2 minutes from the house. You could easily go have lunch (yummy fried frish) and kayak back to the house to watch the sunset from the hammocks. If you need to leave the island, Granada is 15 minutes away and offers great restaurants.

Beautiful property in wonderful setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful house on a private island in lake Nicaragua. We really enjoyed our stay here with a boat tour of the islands and a visit to see the lava flow at the volcano in masaya.

A few small things that could have been improved. We had asked for the staff to cook a simple dinner because we knew the kids would be hungry when we arrived. But when we got there, there was no water and dinner wasn't started. I coached Maria a little on how to cook dinner without water and by the time we finished eating, Roberto had got some water delivered. Roberto and Sebastian were particularly nice.

Unsurprising for island living, there were quite a few ants in the living room but no biting bugs.

The house is lovely though and sitting out in the garden, eating breakfast with our friends felt incredibly peaceful.

James was very quick to communicate and I would definitely recommend staying here.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Thank you Dave and James for organising our stay. It was an outstanding experience and the house is my favourite house on the las islets. We live in Nicaragua and have been often on the Island cruise and it is a beautiful architecture. To see it the first time from inside was even better. Nicely chosen modern furniture mixed up with typical colonial antique furniture. The local family that is living on the island in a separate building is very helpful and respectful. We never saw but when we needed something they have been around immediately and help us. Kayaking was fun and the kayaks are for free. There are also a few restaurants around where you can even go by kayak. Best get away for friends and families. Thank you
