About the Property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Granada- the Jewel of Nicaragua a city, nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. What better way to experience the history and architecture of this incredibly diverse city than by staying in the traditional colonial home of Casa Yalula. Casa Yalula was built pre 1900 and exemplifies the beauty of the Moorish influenced Spanish architecture of this time. While embracing its classic and historic features, Casa Yalula has been completely updated for your modern day needs making it nothing short of luxurious. Daily cleaning, WiFi, cable TV, washer and dryer ensure you will want for nothing during your stay! The home is a perfect space for a romantic getaway, family vacation or group of friends looking to enjoy a home together so that conversations can go late into the night! Lofty ceilings, soft natural light, hand carved wood pillars, beams and stair cases, bright colors, local art and the owners attention to detail make Casa Yalula the perfect home for your stay here in the heart of historic Granada. Offering incomparable access to all the sites, restaurants and nightlife you are here to see, Casa Yalula is itself an experience that will make your stay in Granada unforgettable.

Each room of Casa Yalula opens to the courtyard space- a highlight of Spanish architecture of this time. This allows for fresh air to fill the home and for conversation to flow effortlessly. This makes the traditional courtyard space the heart of the home so what better space is there for the 25 mt private pool! This incredible private outdoor area is the perfect location to catch some rays and enjoy a cold drink as you laze away an afternoon in the tropics. There is no more perfect place to escape the heat of the afternoon and focus on relaxing- the often forgotten aspect of a vacation! Enjoy a morning, afternoon or day of reading here - Casa Yalula has a library of books for your reading pleasure while at the home.

From the street you enter the home into the grand main salon. Cooled by large ceiling fans, this airy space with original wood paneled ceilings is decorated with hand painted tiles and beautiful locally crafted furniture. A 32” TV with DVD player and a large DVD collection are located in this room and once you see the comfy extra wide couches it’s likely a night in will be on the itinerary.

Located right off the courtyard/pool area is the kitchen space a mixture of modern appliances, custom furniture and traditional setting within the home. Natural light fills the space during the daytime hours. And you need not go far from the pool for a snack or perhaps a refill on a cold drink. High quality stainless steal appliances, beautiful wood accents and a curated collection of art make this an ideal place to try your hand at creating a meal with Nicaragua’s bounty of fresh ingredients. All the kitchen tools you require are here for your use. The custom, hand hewn table will seat your entire group comfortably with more than enough space for eight guests making for a memorable space to enjoy a homemade meal.

The bedroom locations are spread throughout the home to allow for maximum privacy for large groups.

Climb up the stunning floating staircase hand-crafted with local woods to the second level of the home. Here you will find the master bedroom. This incredibly romantic space has a comfortable queen bed, full bath, air conditioning and a fabulous wood deck where you can view the cupolas of the Main Cathedral and on a clear day, Volcano Mombacho. Enjoy a solar heated shower in your private ensuite. The room also has its own 25” flat screen TV. The second upper level bedroom features two twin beds, a full bath with solar heated showers and air conditioning as well as a Juliette balcony.

On the main/lower level of Casa Yalula there are two ensuite bedrooms, each with full baths solar heated showers, A/C and comfortable queen sized beds. Soft new linens make for a comfortable nights sleep. The front bedroom has a lovely private patio space with Adirondack chairs to enjoy. Not to be outdone, the back bedroom features access to a beautiful private courtyard.
