Welcome to the “Artist’s Garden” – “El Jardin de la Artista.” Our studio and casita guest house is a relaxing nature sanctuary located in the cooler hillside outside of Managua. The studio is comprised of a spacious terrace and living area, a brand new kitchen & 2BD casita. It accommodates up to 4 guests.
The Artist’s Garden is an escape to paradise with an ideal mountain climate and tropical environment especially designed for lovers of both the arts and nature. Lush gardens surround the main structure which is a large, open artist studio, featuring the living room, eat-in bar, kitchen, dining area and a spacious outdoor terrace, a perfect place to entertain or simply relax and enjoy the perfect temperatures and breezes. Immediately adjacent to the studio you will find the 'casita' with two cozy bedrooms and a bathroom. The rooms can be outfitted to fit 4 people with an option to have two twin beds or one king bed in each room.
We have a minimum 3 night stay. We guarantee that you will not want to stay less than 3 nights!
There is a charge of $20 per additional guest per night, when more than two guests.
The artist's studio is located in a residential area, in what's referred to as Carretera Sur. It sits on a property that features two other houses, yet its location and design will give you plenty of privacy and you will feel as you have the whole garden to yourself. All three houses are owned and managed by us.
The center of Managua is 15-20 minutes away. This is a great location if you want to enjoy nature and you are making your way to the various destinations in Nicaragua.
Carretera Sur is the Panamarican highway, so you will be situated already on the highway that takes you to most beaches in the Pacific (San Juan del Sur, Tola, Majagual, Iguana, etc) and also Ometepe. It also has easy access to the white towns and other departments (Carazo, Rivas, Masaya, Granada). PLEASE NOTE THE VRBO.com MAP is INCORRECT, WE ARE ON KM 13.2, BETWEEN MONTE TABOR AND INCAE. 15 MINUTES from Managua.
At your request, we can arrange for maid service, which can be provided at an extra fee. The maid service may include cooking breakfast, ironing, washing and drying or babysitting. Do let us know your requests and we will try to make everything possible for you to have a nice stay.
The house is in a safe and quite area and the property is all fenced in. We will be happy to arrange for an airport pick up and can make arrangements for you to have access to a car and driver.
We will be happy to accommodate any special request. Other services such as car, chauffeur, pick or delivery and maid service are available for an extra fee.

About the owner: Our family has lived in this compound through the decades and now we are opening our home to receive guests from abroad. We love to entertain and welcome visitors.
Maria Renee is an artist and you will see all her work throughout our property. Her style is vibrant, rich in color and symbolism. Following her art, Maria Renee is extremely passionate about her garden, which will embrace you and captivate your senses once you stay in one of our properties.
Gerardo has spent decades in management and academics and now devotes most of his time to graduate teaching and consulting projects.
Both were born and raised in Nicaragua and love to travel, and agree that there is nothing like being home.
Why the Owner Chose Managua: If you love nature, open spaces, ideal temperatures and want to get away from the hustle and bustle in Managua, you will enjoy the studio and the artist's garden, where you will be able to watch birds every morning and enjoy quiet sunsets.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: You will enjoy cooler temperatures than in Managua, as Carretera Sur is higher in altitude.
We are in a very quiet and safe neighborhood.
