About This Listing
More than accommodation, we want you to have the best experience of Nicaragua while you discover Granada with us.
Casa Silas offers you a very comfortable Queen size bed and ensuite bathroom with hot shower. Our two rooms (price is per room) are equipped with air-conditioning and ceiling fans, and also feature skylights for a gentle wake up call from the Nicaraguan sunrise and the parrots outside your window. The rooms look out upon the courtyard garden and swimming pool. Your most difficult decision at Casa Silas will be whether to have a morning dip in the pool before or after coffee. In addition to coffee we also offer a selection of fresh, local fruits, jams, and heartier breakfast fare to start your morning of exploring. We also offer complimentary high speed WiFi, VoIP telephone calls to the US, Canada and Mexico, and laundry service. There's more... full concierge services are also available, including arranging airport shuttle, car rentals, spanish lessons or area tours. Of course, we would be happy to take you on a walking tour of the city, a boat cruise of Las Isletas or if you prefer to explore on your own, we can arrange for a driver to take you to Volcano Mombacho or Volcano Masaya. There are also the artisan markets of Masaya or the pottery cooperatives of San Juan de Oriente. You won't want to go home empty-handed. We'll see you soon.
Public transit in Granada is frequent, fast, and affordable. Our colectivo taxis (C$10) passenger ride, urbanos (C$3), interurbanos or expresos (C$10+ destination dependent). Stations for Masaya, Managua, Rivas/San Juan del Sur are all located within 3 blocks of the casa. And if you prefer private car or shuttle we'll set you up and see you off in safety and comfort.

We had a great time in Granada. Rob & Claudia were great hosts, very helpful in suggesting things to do, restaurants, etc. The relaxed environment of Casa Silas was the prefect way to start our Nicaragua vacation.
This place is wonderful! Can't say enough good things - we will have to come back!
Rob and Claudia are really lovely hosts who put a lot of care into making you feel comfortable, really safe, and really well fed in the morning (breakfasts were awesome!). They also provide excellent recommendations and ideas for places in and around the city.
The space is perfect as well: just a block and half from a great outdoor market to really get a sense for Granada people, a few minutes walk from Parque Centrale and the many outdoor cafes, restaurants, and bars. The house has a wonderful open air interior courtyard and pool. The whole space has great art and decorations including in the rooms. WiFi was fast, and A/C was a nice treat in the heat of the late spring.
Casa Silas was our most enjoyable stay throughout our travels in Nicaragua. Rob and Clau were incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts who arranged for our pickup from the airport with a cheerful driver, Roberto, who accquainted us with the area as we drove to town. Casa Silas felt very safe and spacious, and met all of our comfort needs with great fans, air conditioning, and a great hot shower. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts each morning, delicious coffee, and many swims in the courtyard's pool. We also enjoyed time with the family's dogs who were always ready to be pet, but were in no way pesky to visitors. We greatly appreciated Rob and Clau's advice on where to eat, what to explore, and how much we should expect to pay throughout the city. By the time of departure, we felt more like old friends than just visitors at Casa Silas. I would absolutely recommend this as a great first stop in Nicaragua because of the graciousness of the welcome we received!
This place was great!!!! Rob and Clau (not sure if I spelled that correctly) were fantastic hosts. The house was beautiful, relaxing, super clean, and in a great location! The AC worked really well and we felt so welcome in their home. The sangria was delicious too. Rob helped arrange a taxi for my friend from the airport and it was super smooth and easy. We ended up staying an extra night because we loved it so much. We would highly recommend this spot to anyone passing through Granada!
We loved our stay at Casa Silas and would highly recommend this place if you're visiting Granada. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Having the air conditioning made a huge difference for sleeping and the pool was a great way to cool down from the heat, both in the afternoon and at night. Rob's breakfasts were delicious and he had good suggestions for things to do and the best ways to get around. The unsung heroes were of course the pups! Pepper, Pepita, and Toby were cute, friendly and one of the highlights.
We had a great time visiting Casa Silas. The quiet room, set back from the street was a great place for us to stay. The small outdoor pool in the courtyard was necessary after walking around Granada all day.
Rob and his wife were very accommodating and helped us organize taxi's and gave us very helpful tips on what we should do both in Granada and after we left. They were very knowledgeable about the city and how much everything would cost us. The home cooked breakfast was very tasty and was a great way to start each day.
We would definitely recommend for a couple looking to see Granada.
Rob a été un hôte absolument incroyable lorsque ma mère et moi avons séjouné à Casa Silas. Les déjeuners étaient excellents, nous avons bien apprécié la piscine et la chambre était spacieuse et très confortable. Nous recommandons vivement cet hébergement à Granada!
