About the owner: Hello, our names are Chris and Chloe and we live in Vancouver BC with our two children. We first came to Ometepe Island in 2010 during a family vacation to Nicaragua. Having traveled extensively, Chris arranged the holiday to include time in Granada, San Juan Del Sur, Ometepe, and the Corn Islands. While all of our time in Nicaragua was beautiful, Ometepe Island instantly captured our hearts and imagination. The friendly people and stunning scenery never left our thoughts and after returning home to Canada, we dreamed of ways to return to that sense of paradise. Two years ago we began building that dream. Inspired by our stay on Ometepe, we wanted to build a home that would be suitable for other travellers to enjoy having experienced limited variety in accommodations at the time of our stay. We completed construction and were so excited to spend our first holiday in our new home this year. We are equally excited for the opportunity to share the amazing experience of the island with other travellers looking for a home base for their next adventure.
Why the Owner Chose Ometepe Island: During our search for property on the island, we looked at many wonderful places thanks to our friend and property manager, Sam Bauer. What we liked most about this property was the size and location. There are many beautiful place on the island, but travel is not so easy and we wanted to be close enough to experience access to town as well as plan day trips from the island to the mainland. This property also offered a blank canvas to build a family friendly home in a serene and beautiful setting.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home’s location is fantastic and even on the hottest days, there is a breeze that travels throughout the property. Huge mango trees and palm trees made it easy to fall in love with the land. Now that the house is finished, it is amazing to sit on the porch and look out over the property and we are so delighted that the monkeys still come through almost every night! The open design of the house is wonderful, with the three bedrooms offering a closed space to escape to. Chloe was particularly involved in the design of this 'no bug zone' area of the house : ) We have been very fortunate to find our hard working grounds keeper Joey, who lives on site to manage the day to day property needs. Living on an elevated property in combination with city water levels that fluctuate, means that daily maintenance of the water supply is crucial, particularly in the dry season. Joey does an excellent job of making sure this happens. We have also been very fortunate to connect with Sam Bauer, Ometepe’s top selling real estate agent. Sam is a capable trustworthy longstanding resident of Ometepe, who also provides ongoing oversight for the development and rental of our property. With our connections to the island community, we feel very confident that our guest’s needs will be met.
