Holiday Rental House
This property is truly one of a kind. We’d love for you to experience both the breath taking view outside and the Spanish revival elements of the house inside. Located on the northwest rim of an extinct volcano in the Apoyo Lagoon Natural Reserve, the view is…spectacular! Looking out from the Castillo terrace, in front of you lies the ancient volcanic Apoyo lake. In the distance, you can see the Mombacho volcano, Lake Nicaragua, the city of Granada and the Isletas ….and on a clear day, the Conception volcano. As you gaze out onto the amazing sunrises and sunsets, or the nighttime sky full of stars, you’ll be accompanied by a tropical breeze that is always a welcome guest at this elevation.

As you gaze out onto the amazing sunrises and sunsets, or the nighttime sky full of stars, you’ll be accompanied by a tropical breeze that is always a welcome guest at this elevation. The area is home to an Eco Reserve that boasts 500 species of plants and tropical trees with a large variety of orchids. The abundant wildlife includes howler monkeys, iguanas, lizards and ant eaters. There are also over 230 species of birds, 220 species of butterflies and a variety of fish, some of which are only found in this lake. The 3000 square foot house boasts hand rendered concrete and stucco, and curved arches with exposed beams and cane ceilings. Doors and windows are arched with matching woodwork. Tile floors with hand painted accent border tiles are found throughout the entire house. The beautiful kitchen is well adorned and has a gas stove and oven. There are two dining tables for large gatherings and a living room with a smart TV to stream movies and entertainment. There are three bedrooms , individually air conditioned with additional overhead ceiling fans. Water is from a spring fed aquifer and there is hot water on demand. Step outside onto the expansive terrace and you’re immediately struck by the gorgeous infinity pool with its two fountains, the lake providing the backdrop. There are two covered porches with hand crafted local furniture giving you plenty of opportunities to relax comfortably outdoors. A large mango tree towers above the driveway (feel free to pick them up as they drop and make a great salad or smoothie) , and lush tropical flowers abound. Humming birds and other tropical birds frequent the area with an occasional Toucan.More
