Tola house description

Located less than 200 yards from the beach of Playa Gigante and half that to town center, Casa Laguna is truly a unique Nicaraguan experience. Following American standard building techniques, this brand new rental blends the conveniences of nearby resort amenities with the excitement and genuine feeling of community in a sleepy Nicaraguan fishing village. Famous for its world-class surf breaks, the closest of which is a five-minute walk, Playa Gigante offers a little something for everyone. The town also offers several restaurants, bars, 2 small grocery stores, and an internet café. Playa Gigante is a protected bay making it a safe and family friendly place to swim and relax. This also makes it the best bay around to get surf boat tours, fishing charters, sunset sailing adventures, ATV tours, and much more.
The house is nestled under a large occasionally monkey filled tree, offering the perfect escape from the heat of the day. Casa Laguna has three large bedrooms, a full kitchen, an entertaining space, shaded hard wood deck and a barbecue zone. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and it’s own private bathroom. The guest rooms have custom made bunk beds (full size mattress on bottom, twin mattress on top) that can sleep three people in each bunk bed set. All guest rooms have air conditioning with locking bed side tables. The house has hot water, ample storage, brand new appliances, a large dining table, excellent security and even a board rack for your surf boards.

If you would like to know more about Playa Gigante and the surrounding areas, please e-mail me as I have compiled a detailed list of things to see and do while here as well as detailed maps of the area and surrounding beach breaks.

Inquire about special vacation packages that include transport to and from the airport, fishing trips, guided surf tours, sunset sails and much more. All trips are completely customizable to fit a group of any size or interest.

                              About: We never thought we'd own a property in a foreign country. We always thought we'd just travel to new places. After a trip to Gigante in 2010, that all changed. Upon spending some time in this little village, we couldn't help but feel attached to the people, the community and the pride held by the people for their home. The incredible surf sure helps too, waves and offshore every day, where else do you get that? We saw the opportunity to introduce our young boys to another culture and language and couldn't imagine it not being this place. So now we were hooked. Thankfully, meeting Ben and Kass of Barefoot Builders allowed us to design and build a fantastic home in this little tropical paradise. They provided the needed support and local knowledge needed to navigate the very different world of building in a foreign country. As property managers, we know that Barefoot Builder's intimate knowledge of the house they built, their years of high end customer service experience in this little town and their dedication to helping industry for all that live here, you will have as incredible an experience as we did. We hope you fall in love with Gigante and our little home in the heart of it. The Woltz's
