The SpaceImagine your Nicaraguan getaway set in a beautifully unique and tranquil location.
Casa Don Carlos is located in a wonderful neighborhood of Granada City, Nicaragua. The exquisite details of this three-bedroom home can be appreciated in the beautifully handmade intricate colonial tiled floors, it's mix of Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, the wooden columns and hand carved furniture, the interior courtyard accentuated by a volcanic rock cascade and much, much more. We leave it up to you to discover all of it's beauty.
The layout is open-air style. The kitchen is set between the corridors surrounding the courtyard and the living-room area. The two bedrooms are tucked away on the first floor sharing one full bathroom. Both rooms are equipped with full size beds and air conditioning.
The Master Suite has a queen size bed, a private elegant full bathroom, spacious closets, air conditioning, and is located on the second floor. It has access to a beautiful veranda where one can watch the sunrise sipping on the famous Nicaraguan coffee or watch the sunset and relax to the sound of singing birds.
One of the most enchanting features of Casa Don Carlos is the "Mirador" located on the 3rd floor. The Mirador offers a beautiful view of the Mombacho Volcano.
Casa Don Carlos is the perfect place to call your home as you explore this still virgin and beautiful country and begin your memorable vacation. Casa Don Carlos was fully restored in 2007. Although described as Colonial, this beautiful house presents some modern characteristics that were added during reconstruction by the owner which is a very talented architect and Interior Designer. Inspired by the beautiful architecture of Greek beach houses, an interior arch between the living-room and corridors was added thus creating a more open and exotic space. The kitchen area moved from the back of the house toward the patio allowing a more cozy atmosphere. A more modern note to this colonial design is given by the addition of a large counter and 2 full bars, one inside that can be used as dining space and one outside in the patio. You will find this re-design very pleasing, combining perfectly the colonial style with the modern, adequate for the new living standards of our times.
We have a few very cute pets at the house, one beautiful parrot and 6 water turtles. Our parrot has a nice spacious cage that has a net around it for safety purpose in case our youngest guests would like to admire the parrot up close. Our turtles are so cute and every so often they venture off to the fountain or La Sala (the living room). They are shy and will run back into the water if they notice people around. Our other uninvited guests that we personally love are the geko's. They perfectly decorate the walls of the house toward the evening hours.
Casa Don Carlos is very private and quiet, features that our guests have always appreciated.

The NeighborhoodOur house is located just a couple of blocks from the Farmer's Market, which is such a big attraction for everyone visiting Granada. It's so much fun to walk to the market and meet the locals. While not precisely in the heart of Granada City it offers that extra privacy and quiet one needs, after a long day full of fun activities. It's still within walking distance of all the lovely places to hang out such as: Parque Central, Museum, the Cathedral and La Calzada. I guess you just have to come see for yourself! Getting AroundGetting around is so, so easy! Walking is always my number 1 option but just by opening the front door one could wave at a taxi and off they go. There's always public transportation or more romantic a ride in a horse chalet.
