Property description

Situated on a coastal hill with a cliff on one side and the Pacific surf meeting the rocks just below, this five bedroom beach house is located in the gated community of Redonda Bay featuring a private beach and resort and next to the wonderfully authentic and friendly Nicaraguan fishing village of Gigante. The house is an ideal vacation destination for a large group, family reunion or multi-family vacation.

Redonda Bay’s secluded, private white sand beach is a short walk down the hill and features a spa, beachside yoga and an excellent restaurant serving meals throughout the day. Enjoy the absolutely perfect water that you walk into without a flinch and once in never want to leave. From here guests can access other activities offered by the spa, snorkel amongst the rocks or just relax on the beach.

Just a short five minute drive away is the village of Gigante. Here guests can choose from five beachside restaurants, watch the fishermen bring in their daily catch, pick up supplies at the pulperia (mini-grocery), buy fresh fish and local lobster, rent a surf board or body board and hang out with the locals, intrepid neighbors and ex-pat local residents. You will fall right in and find that your vacation dollars go a long way here.
Area activities include surfing, body boarding, horseback riding, hiking, sailing, small boat (panga) fishing, off-shore fishing, sea kayaking, snorkeling, wildlife viewing, zip-line canopy tours, volcano viewing, markets and visiting the nearby Spanish Colonial town of Granada ( the oldest city in North and South America.

On site property managers Grace and Omar are on hand to answer any question, arrange for services and to make sure your stay is fun, comfortable and safe. We strongly encourage guests to utilize the very affordable daily housekeeping team service or local cook service through the property managers to make the most of their stay. Daily pool cleaning and exterior maintenance is included in the rental.

The house itself is constructed of beautiful Brazilian hardwood and locally sourced tile. All of the furniture is brand new, top quality and handmade in Nicaragua. The main floor features a great room with an open kitchen, a dining table that seats eight and a living space perfect for conversation and games. The main floor veranda features an additional dining table with a view of the bay that is ideal for coffee, breakfast, lunch or an evening drink as the sun sets. The veranda also has rocking chairs and lounge chairs for whatever matches your mood. The kitchen features brand new appliances and is made for entertaining. The bunk room is a great place for kids with beds for 6 (3 twins and 3 trundles), a full bathroom, double doors to the veranda and plenty of room to lounge, hang out and watch movies on the large flatscreen TV equipped with satellite, DVD and video streaming.

The lower level features an infinity pool with a terrific view of the water, hammocks, chaise lounges, a hardwood picnic style table for dining/games that seats eight, a half bath and even an outdoor poolside shower. It’s the perfect place for the kids to hang out and call their own or for the entire family to relax. Adjacent to the pool is a palapa (thatch roofed shelter) and just above is the casita with a private bedroom (full size bed), full bathroom and laundry room.

The upper level features a gallery, three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a wraparound sun deck. The spacious master suite features a king size bed, balcony, dressing room, double sink full bathroom and double doors leading to the sundeck. The bedroom next to the master features two twin beds plus a third trundle bed and a full bathroom. The third bedroom features a full size bed, built in cabinets, a full bathroom and double doors leading to the sundeck.

The house includes linens, towels, kitchen equipment, dishes, glasses, paper goods, cleaning supplies and soap. Guests should plan a quick stop at a grocery store in Managua for food, bottled water and beverages. Consider picking up the three essential Nicaraguan items/gifts right at baggage claim (Flor de Cana rum, Tona lager and cigars from Esteli) for the full Nica experience. Golfers can rent clubs at nearby Iguana Golf Course and Mukul Resort. Guest should pack a good book, DVDs, CDs, an iPod, laptop/tablet, good walking shoes, swimsuit, a hat, sunglasses, suntan lotion, a favorite beach towel and maybe a mask & snorkel. You won’t need much else.

Location

Car: Recommended

World class surfing for beginners to experts. Fishing with the local fishermen including private charters available at reasonable prices. Nearby golf course. One hour to Colonial Granada - the oldest city in North and South America. Nearby canopy 'zip line' tours. Nearby San Juan del Sur, live volcano, craft market and absolutely authentic Nicaraguan life in the fishing village of Gigante just 5 minutes from the house. Neighbors are intrepid Americans, Canadians and Europeans. Great value on everything from beachside dining to private cook/cleaning staff.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a family of five from the Chicago area who first came to Nicaragua for the wedding of a close family friend. We really love to travel and have enjoyed seeing a lot of great spots on earth together. We are extremely active so our new home at the beach in Redonda Bay is perfect for us. We can completely relax while at the same time know that between surfing, fishing, yoga and the fun tourism in the area (zip line tours, colonial Granada, Masaya markets, snorkeling etc.) there is plenty to keep us and our guests occupied. Our guests love it and that makes it really fun.

Why the Owner Chose Rivas, Nicaragua:
We were introduced to the development by a close family friend who is a relative of the developer. When we experienced the natural beauty of the coastline, the incredibly authentic atmosphere of Gigante and the surrounding area and the great vibe that the local people and the intrepid American, Canadian and European neighbors created we were hooked. Its a truly unique place, a great value and a great family vacation spot that we can enjoy for a long time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is situated on a unique spot with a cliff on one side and the 24 hour Pacific-surf-on- the-rocks show just below us. We have an easy walk down to the private beach (restaurant, yoga etc.)and get the ocean breezes all day without the occasionally strong winds that occur above. Our house was built for large groups, family reunions and multi-family vacations with plenty of room for everyone to be together or spread out on three levels with everyone enjoying the view.
