Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Anita is a warm and inviting villa, with very comfortable furnishings, beautiful arches and columns that accent the main floor and surround a nice central pool and fountain. It is unique in the heart of Granada within 3 blocks of Central Park with all that it has to offer, such as Dining, Night Life, Shopping and Museums, just to mention a few.

There are two luxurious bedrooms upstairs that have ample space, very comfortable queen size beds, TV's with cable, airconditioning and each have on-suite baths.

Mild temperatures, blue skies spotted with white clouds, the sound of dove and kiskadee, an occasional glimpse of parrots just off the upstairs balcony. The sound of horse hooves on the cobble stone streets below, the aroma of breakfast cooking at one of the local restaurants around the corner....all while enjoying a cup of locally grown coffee. This is just one morning in the real everyday world at Casa Anita.

No trip to Nicaragua is complete without a trip to Granada to experience the warmth and hospitalility of it's people, and culture. It is a relaxed and easy pace where schedules and agendas are almost non-existant. You can leave your watch at home. A horse drawn carriage is just the right pace for taking in all of the historic sites, some of which date back to 1524, when Granada was founded.

Just a few blocks past Central Park and you will find Lake Nicaragua where boat tours are available to explore some of the 365 islands and habitats formed by the Mombacho Volcanic eruption from over 20,000 years ago. Now dormant, Mombacho reserve is mostly covered by a mystical cloud forrest. Tours are available for the adventurous at heart.

The villa comes equiped with Hot water on demand, which means you never run out!

About Anita Worrell

My husband is retired and I am a Registered Nurse and Director of Operations in a National Home Health Company. We have been married for 23 years and raised a blended family of five children. God has blessed us with twenty grandchildren. As strong Christians thank GOD fo the opportunity to own a villa in Nicaragua and pray that we are able to honor HIM with it.

Anita Worrell purchased this villa in 2011

Why Anita Worrell chose Granada

My husband first traveled to Nicaragua in 1971 and was intrigued by the culture, however he was not able to return again until 2008 when we met up with his college roommate and friends who are originally from Nicaragua. We both fell in love instanlty with the warm people and the beautiful country and are in awe of the astonishing architechture and unique culture. We have intentions in the next few years of retiring to Nicaragua, however in the mean time thought we could enjoy our own piece of heaven. We searched tediously for a villa that was warm, inviting, elegant and close to everything and the first time we looked at it on-line we knew this was the one. Of course when you walk into Casa Anita you will see that you instantly feel at home. We decided to purchase this villa for a vacation rental and our home away from home until we retire to Nicaragua in the near future.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Anita is just 1 & 1/2 block from Mercedes Cathedral and 3 blocks form Central Park. In Central Park you will find anything you like from Horse Carriage rides to local art and crafts. Restaurants and Night LIfe surround Central Park. Just about 6 blocks further and you are at the 7th largest lake in the world. You can take a boat ride to the Isletas (Islands) and feed the monkeys on Monkey Island, swim, fish or just admire the serenity of it. Granada is a beautiful town with great architechture and amazing history.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our trip to Nicaragua. We could not have dreamed of such a trip until Mike started describing your casa, the food, the people, etc. Thank you for sharing. All was great. We ate at a different restaurant each meal except for one. Two times at the Artist’s Café for lunch. All meals were wonderful. The pool was such a nice break in the afternoon. Great idea! The last two days the temp was 95. February is really a great time.



Thank you again for making this experience possible.

Beautiful and unique!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days in July 2017. The house was beautiful. Open roof above the pool. Very clean, two great bedrooms and bathrooms. Very close to everything in downtown Granada. Francisco picked us up from the airport and remained our amazing tour guide the entire time we were there! GPS staff were extremely helpful and accommodating and their office is 5 min walk from the house. Best vacation ever! ❤️

Ideal for a couple

  • 4 of 5

Casa Anita is perfectly located, about a 5 minute walk from the main square. The house itself offers a welcome respite from the hectic streets, and the pool is perfect for cooling down in the stifling heat.

The house is exactly as the photos portray, set around a small dipping pool, with 2 air conditioned bedrooms upstairs. Both rooms are on suite, but they only have queen beds which for a 6’4” guy are incredibly small for 2people.

The living area is perfect, surrounding the pool, with overhead fans but also open air above the pool. The kitchen is fully stocked, including fresh local coffee and coffee maker. A grocery store is close by(turn left out front door and it is 400m down the road on the left).

This is an ideal place for a couple, maybe plus a child.

The only negatives are the small beds and the road noise. The master is against the street so I highly recommend ear plugs. Granada wakes early so be prepared!

Great place. Well situated and well looked after. Beautiful!

Casa Anita Jan.2018

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at Casa Anita for a full week and simply LOVE it! The house is stunning and our girls 12 and 9 had an awesome time swimming every day! The staff was professional, detailed, kind and very helpful. Amy came everyday to clean and did an excellent job. We felt safe and comfortable at ALL times. Definitely made our time in Nicaragua that much enjoyable. Would most definitely go there again! Great for a single family or 2 couples. Very affordable and great location!

Very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Great two bedroom house fully functional and equipped. Really wonderful with tons of towels, washer and dryer. Slightly smaller than it appears in the photos but still super nice. It's about 3.5 blocks from the main square/park and one-two more from the recommended restaurants. It's an easy walk though and you couldn't get this house in the middle of the nightlife area for this price. If I could change anything it would be upgrading the sound system to accept Bluetooth or at least an AUX in cable (to play your favorite music off your gadgets) and a main bathroom shower head that helps with the weak water pressure but both of these are petty comments and wouldn't change my decision to stay in this great little house! Always felt safe in the area despite it having a local feel and the management team was always available for us. Wifi worked fine and was particularly good upstairs and running AC in the bedrooms during the night didn't put our electric bill over the limit included in the rent. You can't beat this deal!
