Basic, But Stunning Views
Basic, But Stunning Views
We recently stayed here for 6 nights. The first day it was very difficult to find (directions weren't quite right), even a guard at the main road turn-off sent us off in another direction, good thing we ignored him and drove up anyways; apparently no one has heard of Quinta Linda Vista. But once we arrived, Luz the caretaker, showed us our cabins. They are pretty basic, but we knew that going in, what we didn't expect was to not have power. There was lights, and there is a fan supplied, but there wasn't enough "juice" for it to work, nor could we charge any of our devices, cameras, etc. We were able to use the main house power to do so though. But besides that, the beds were super comfy, the place was super clean, the surroundings were fantastic! The cold shower in the morning was refreshing! :) We didn't do the meal plan, so I can't comment on that, but the owners and Luz tried to accommodate us the best way they could. We borrowed a cooler to keep drinks in at our cabin, even though they offered the fridge in the main house. I recommend this place if you want stunning surroundings, and a basic room to stay, but I would suggest a vehicle, as it is quite the ways off the main road.

Owner response: Laura, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the electrical outage and the road repairs. I just came back from the Quinta and the lights went out every day at about 6pm. Our next major purchase is a redundant power supply, either air, solar or diesel. But it's costly. In the meantime, we will work an interim solution with small portable generators. We are very glad you liked our place. We do our best to make everyone comfortable. Thank you for appreciating our efforts and being our guest. We look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, heidi

The property is impeccably clean and absolutely gorgeous. We stayed for 3 nights and loved everything about it. Luz and her family also make the stay really special with their friendliness and willingness to help in any way possible. The property is surrounded by spectacular views on all sides, and the breeze provided by its hill top placement is a huge advantage for cool evenings and a lack of bugs. If you have a rental car make sure it is four wheel drive, but we had no trouble without a vehicle. We were able to walk to Charco Verde and hike the trails there, and also to easily walk to San Jose del Sur (Where the closest Ferry docks) to catch the bus or find a taxi or nearly anything else needed. If you need transportation around the island talk to "Gordo" in San Jose del Sur (you'll see a sign for his Taxi Business). We worked with him a couple times and found him knowledgeable, friendly, reliable and reasonable. The owners were also great in terms of getting us specific ferry information and setting up transportation to and from the ferry. This property is really a gem and a fantastic place to relax and see Ometepe.

Amazing Island Family Stay!
Amazing Island Family Stay!
Wow! What an amazing and beautiful island and the home was a perfect place for our family with two small children to stay. The views of both volcanoes were outstanding and Luz, the cuidador (or caretaker), cooked us delicious meals (breakfast and dinner) and took excellent care of the home. Luz was very patient with our attempts at communicating in Spanish and helped us learn more! Take the road slowly up the hill as clearance is sometimes tricky (we made it though and got better each time up the hill in a small rental car) - in the rainy season, we'd recommend a 4WD vehicle. Neighbors were also quite friendly and kind. We'll be back!

Superb views and location
Superb views and location
The property and buildings are all very clean and well-maintained, and the landscape and views are just magnificent. Food and meals were provided in a timely manner and were delicious--servings were quite healthy! Only small pick is the night time room temperature----we didn't sleep well despite the fact that fans were provided,. We perceive the problem to be that of "brownouts", which meant that our fan and other electrical devices and lighting would cut in/out intermittently, and sometimes for longer periods. So, our fan would stay on for 15-20minutes then would cut out completely. The cool night breeze was an option, but that option is coupled with the invitation for mosquitoes, etc.. Regardless, Luz, Bismarck, and other staff were all very accommodating and helpful and genuinely sweet. Would highly recommend a rental vehicle as this property is a bit out of the way. Also recommend bringing flashlights/headlamps :)

Owner response: Tran, Thank you for your review. We appreciate the time you took out of your day to let us know about your stay. We are glad you enjoyed the property. I will see about the fan issue and I plan getting screen windows that open or lock in place depending on the need. Thank you. Heidi and Javier.
If you are looking for a gorgeous, serine place to stay on Ometepe this is just the place. It is extremely clean and comfortable. Being at the top of a hill allows for a very comfortable, gentle breeze. The owner and staff are very responsive and helpful. This is a true get away from it all.

This is probably one of the cleanest places we have stayed at in Nicaragua and definately the cleanest in Ometepe! Darling little casitas very close to Charco Verde. The staff was very sweet to us and the views were amazing. We enjoyed walking around the farm and seeing all the plantains, papayas, birds and animals. We have stayed at a couple of the waterfront places on Ometepe over the years but found this to be more comfortable for sleeping because of the breezes. They were able to accomodate all 7 of us on short notice. Thank you!

About the owner: We work and live in Florida.
Why the Owner Chose Ometepe Island:
We chose this location to build our property for the view and are attempting to conserve its natural beauty by making this property self sustaining. Eventually, we would like to install solar panels as a back-up and later a primary power source. We recycle rain water for daily water use, however each room has bottled drinking water for your convenience.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy the relaxed setting and getting away from the 'electronic leashes' which seem to dominate our daily life. I like to check on my plantains, growing sour orange trees, and chili plants. About 1 mile from the property, we can swim, rent horses, kayak.
