Great house in great location
"We had such a wonderful four days at Casa Sonrisas! The house is very well equipped and provided more than enough space for my husband and I, our two kids, and their two friends. We were warmly welcomed by Danilo, who overlooks the property. He also stopped by each day to make sure we had everything we needed. He took time out of his day Thursday to give us a walking tour of Granada. We had bought some pitahaya (sp?) fruit at the local market and Carmen made fresh juice for us. We also hired Carmen to cook for us on Friday night. We invited some friends from Managua and she made an absolutely delicious Nicaraguan meal for 12 of us. Her nominal fee included all prep, cooking, and clean up. It was definitely worth it.
The house is very well furnished and decorated. Beds are comfortable. Two things to note, however, for travelers who have not been to Nica. Granada is a busy town, and houses are right on the street. Windows and doors are literally against the sidewalk so nights can be noisy. Casa Sonrisas is one block off the busiest street where are the restaurants are located, so it's not as noisy as some locations but you will still have some street noise. We considered it part of the experience. Each door and window have locked gates over them and the garden wall is probably 12 feet with razor wire on top so we felt completely safe with our kids there.
We loved Casa Sonrisas and if our travels bring us back to Granada, we would choose to stay there again!"

Awesome for hardcore surfers and peeps looking to relax.
"The condo is perfect. Top floor helps keep the bugs away. Pool table, TV with satellite and DVD. Maid cleans the place every other day. Rooms are huge. Bathrooms are super nice. Food at the local restaurant is great. The wave at colorado can be brutal. Bring a golf wedge to practice chipping at the private chipping hole."

"Uliana was amazing organizing the details prior to the trip. She organized our ride from the airport with beers, water, and soda in the 10 person passenger van with AC. Lunch was served right when we got the house. The chefs were a must for our group of 5 couples. All we had to do was wake up, surf, sit in the infinity pool, and eat delicious food. We didn't have to do any dishes or spend time cooking. Seth organized golf for our group which was really fun when the surf was small. The housekeeping staff and pool cleaners made sure the house was immaculate every day. 6 days, and 5 nights of paradise living. Very affordable. We will be back!"

"Beautiful place! Better than expected. My friend walked in and said it was like we rented out a whole hotel with a private pool just for us. The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. The views from the balcony are memorable. The pool is refreshing. The property managers are helpful. I liked the daily maid service. Great location! I liked the open air shower with a view over the red tile rooftops of colonial Granada. I recommend renting this property for a stay in Granada."
