About The Owner

We live in Florida. Dan, having lived in Spain for six years during his studies, is very fluent in Spanish. We've enjoyed many years of going on mission trips in Nicaragua.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose Guacalito de La Isla

We have been enjoying the people of Nicaragua since 1998, coming on yearly mission trips. A few years ago, a friend who had been visiting all the new resorts in Nicaragua, told us we had to see this unbelievable jewel of a place called Redonda Bay on the Pacific. We went down the next day and were in love. The beauty truly was breathtaking. So we said 'Let's build a house here!' Just completed January 2010. Wait until you see it!

What makes this villa unique

This home is unique to our community as it consists of a compound of buildings. The main building houses the kitchen, living room, dining room and has a patio and deck as well as an infinity pool. The upper building has four guest rooms each with it's own balcony to sit and view the ocean. The master bedroom is in front of the guest building and features a rounded porch with a panaromic view of the ocean.

For your convenience, we can provide you with a driver to make your vacation that much more of a pleasure.

A unique and comfortable home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

A group of ten of us stayed here for four nights. The rooms were comfortable as well as the common areas! I really enjoyed the furnishings and art as well. We loved the pool and deck area for gathering for happy hour. The best part is Celina the amazing Chef you can hire while staying here. She is a beautiful person and took such great care of us! She cooked our breakfasts and dinners and everything was so good! It was our favorite food in Nicaragua! Also, Fransisco the manager and staff worked really hard to take care of the property so we could relax and enjoy our time there! It is a 10 minute hike to Aqua's beautiful and quiet beach! I recommend this property!

Amazing home in an amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

The entry to this place is dramatic and the drama follows throughout the house; there is an ocean view from every room in this gorgeous house! I loved sitting poolside watching the most incredible sunsets. Saw howler monkeys, beautiful birds, moths and butterflies. My bed was super comfortable. Each morning, I would open wide my room's french doors then crawl back in bed to wake slowly while drinking in sights and sounds of the ocean. Everything is nice and clean. The kitchen is well stocked. The craftsmanship of the builder is amazing. Most, if not all, of the home's gorgeous furnishings were also crafted by the builder. It's a short (although steep) hike to a beautiful beach that has lawn chairs and hammocks for relaxing in the shade or sun and a beachside bar that sells lovely food and drink. While there, I enjoyed a wonderful massage at the nearby resort. Pick up groceries before your arrival because you will not want to leave this paradise. But if you do venture out, Nicaragua has plenty of beauty and adventure to offer every traveler.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house and views are incredible. We loved the chef Celina that the owner recommended. The driver she set up was great too, although neither spoke much English. The house had everything we needed, beds were comfortable. There are security guards every 100 yards or so in the community. The Aqua resort next door has a great beach and excellent massages ($69 hr including tax). The house is on a steep hillside (approximately 25 steps down from road) so I wouldn't recommend it for young children, no yard and no fence around the pool. The pool was clean but chilly, monkeys came down and drank from it at one point. The internet worked reasonably well, but not in the bedrooms - only the common area. We chartered a boat to surf since the breaks were too far to walk and we didn't have a car. It seemed expensive at $160 + board rental and they didn't take us very far away and the spots were all accessible by car. The place would have been difficult to find and I read in a blog that if you're involved in an auto accident in Nica that both parties go to jail until it's sorted out, so I don't recommend a rental car, use one of her drivers.

Owner's Response: I do recommend a driver, but regarding accidents from what I understand, when one is the driver, and a person is seriously injured then incarceration is called for until details are sorted out.

amazing location with a fabulous spa close by

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous 3 days in casa la joya located close by to aqua wellness spa and resort. We spent mist of our time in the swimming pool or over at the resort spa getting massages. The cute beach down in the resort was also very beautiful and great to get in the ocean.

A beautiful home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Bahia Gigante with about 40 of our close friends. We rented 4 of the homes in the area. We felt very lucky to have stayed at La Joya. The others were nice but La Joya was extra special. The decor was very tasteful and the view is spectacular. The house was spotless. The area is family friendly and very safe. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. I can not wait to return...
