This luxury villa is for the design enthusiast and sophisticated traveler who relishes in the details.

The space
Staying at Casa Violeta is much more than booking a luxury villa. We pride ourselves in creating a whole experience for our guests that is rooted in superior customer service and expert knowledge in the destination. Rest assured that you will be well taken care of while staying with us and you can count on us to provide you insider travel tips and ideas for your time in this beautiful country. Now onto what makes Casa Violeta such a special and secluded space to escape to...

"In this Nicaraguan home, traditional colonial and mid-century details are mixed with Moroccan and tropical references." -- Architectural Digest Latin America

Take a dip, or soak in the sun in the courtyard and custom-tiled pool, under open skies, surrounded by lush, tropical flowers and trees. Sip a cocktail (or two), gathering in the curated, open kitchen, living, and dining areas of the peristyle that offers shade, catching breezes from Lake Nicaragua, and offering views of a never-ending motif of color. Locally made, hand-crafted black, gray, and white tiles make the eye follow a canvass of bold patterns, draped in colorful blankets. The attention to detail and delicate balance of geometric design and natural, tropical elements provides captivation and visual candy in every corner. From the terrace, wake up with your morning coffee, gazing at the southern views of Mombacho, the volcano that gives Granada its rich, dark soil. As the sun fades and the night sky emerges, chat away the evening with nightcaps, directing your eyes north to Our Lady of the Consumption, the central, canary-yellow cathedral that prevails over the local sky line.

The villa is decorated with antiques sourced throughout the country, custom ceramics from the village of San Juan del Oriente, and modern art from contemporary Nicaraguan artists. We visited several studios to source the perfect art for Casa Violeta that added additional cultural texture and layers of character and soul to the space while celebrating all the talent and craftsmanship of the country.

This luxury villa is accessible by a private, gated entrance aptly named, Banana Avenue, offering private car parking. While private car parking is available, the villa is centrally located, only four and a half blocks from the central square, and well within walking distance to the major highlights of Granada. Accommodating a total of six people, each of the three bedrooms come with a single king-sized bed, although each king can be split into two separate twin beds upon request. Each bedroom is also equipped with air conditioning (See note on the environment below!). The house also comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. However, please note that there is no oven. We strongly recommend that children be at least five years of age or more to stay in the home due to the open staircase and courtyard.

All reservations include a daily light cleaning, pool cleaning, and electric usage (it is not uncommon to be charged separately for that in Granada). We also provide you with passes to a nearby wellness gym.

For additional fees we can also arrange several services and experiences at the house including babysitting, private yoga classes, massages, cooking classes, private photo shoot, and chefs (more information below). We know that Granada may be one stop on a multi-day trip. Rest assured, you can count on our concierge service to provide you insider knowledge, ideas and tips beyond Granada as you map out your whole journey in this beautiful country.

Guest access
The property manager will meet the guests to hand-off keys and show the house, and advise the guest about any / all services that can be arranged. All Casa Violeta personnel and staff are obligated to wear masks while on the grounds.

Granada, Nicaragua

There are so many reasons to visit Granada, whether it’s to celebrate, escape the cold, a girls trip, or recharge and relax. Our guests receive the additional benefit of access to our concierge service that can help book additional experiences and activities during your time in Granada with us as well as our highly curated resource guide of what to do and see, and where to play and shop while in Granada. Reach out to us, your hosts, to help curate the travel experience you need including private chefs, transportation, and kid-friendly activities.

Below are just some of our offerings:

Alberto’s Walking Tour: Alberto is our favorite guide, and this is not your average (read: boring) walking tour of this beautiful town. See and learn the unknown sights and layered history that separates Granada from the rest-- from Indigenous communities, Spanish colonization, pirate raids, revolutions, foreign occupation, all the way to the now. You’ll even visit some of our local guide's personal favorites, including his favorite quesillo stand (afternoon tour), a hammock shop that employs blind and deaf children, and even where locals go for the coldest beer in town. You’ll see Granada in a whole new light, appreciating it’s wonderful subtleties, feeling right at home.

The Real Massaya Market Tour: Massaya boasts Nicaragua best market for crafts and food. Let your eyes settle from stunning hand-crafted ceramics to vibrantly colored local fruits and produce. Let one of our local hosts show you around this bustling trove of treasures that is impossible to navigate on your own.

Lake Nicaragua Fishing Tour: Lake Nicaragua is Central America’s largest lake. Fish like a local as you boat through the islands that dot the lake just off the shore from Granada like tropical fjords. The catch is yours to make fresh ceviche or grill up as you see fit.

Laguna de Apoyo: Take a day to relax along the banks and in the waters of this volcanic crater. A microclimate unto its own; Laguna de Apoyo is a dry, tropical environment that has thermal, hot springs amidst the lagoon waters and orchids flanking its banks. Swim and explore. Wildlife abounds in this stunning, local favorite.

Catamaran Sailing the Emerald Coast: Let us charter you a Catamaran for the day. Departing from San Juan del Sur, the Catamaran gently skims the deep blue. Drift along the Emerald Coast which offers sights of waves crashing along green cliffs, birds, fresh catches for ceviche, dolphins, and the occasional sea turtle. Take refuge in hidden coves to play and swim. Sip a Nica Libre (rum and coke) as the winds soar the catamaran back to port during the sunset.

Surf Lessons in Popoyo: Whether advanced, a little rusty, or a beginner; Popoyo is the perfect surf destination with low crowds and a surf break for all skill levels. Even better, we have a local guide who can show you where to go, scrape off any rust, or get a beginner addicted to surfing.

Spa Services in the Cloud Forest: Looking for some serious self-care? We know a place nestled in a cloud forest an hour outside of Granada that offers more luxury spa therapies than we knew existed. They offer a plethora of treatments (floral baths, several types of massage, mud scrubs, and more) that’ll have you floating through the rest of your day. Give us a heads up and we’ll coordinate your package (three-day notice).

Night Tour of Mombacho Volcano: Care to hike to the top of an active volcano and peer down to Dante’s Inferno? Test your nerve and be rewarded with a stunning view of mother nature’s power as you admire glowing magma lighting the night sky.

Hi! I'm Katalina. My husband (Samuel) and I found our way to Granada, Nicaragua after eleven years in Washington DC, each in an adventurous career of international development and international trade security, respectfully. Six years ago I founded El Camino Travel, combining my passions of supporting the sustainability of strong local economies and travel into a boutique travel company, focused on immersive tourism and positive community impact. From my transition from international development to conscientious entrepreneur, I discovered my deep love for Nicaragua; it’s climate, people, possibility, and scenery. Nicaragua had all the lovely Latin touches that I was accustomed to, growing up in a Colombian household, but with one extra thing...really good surfing. Fast-forward to 2019, both my husband and I were ready to leave to DC and head to Latin America to pursue a few passion projects and a balanced pace of life after eleven years of rocket propelled careers in DC. We now split our time between Colombia and Nicaragua. We hope you decide to stay at Casa Violeta and allow us to show you everything Nicaragua has to offer. Saludos! Katalina
