Shamus Hewitt was looking for an investment and stumbled upon Laguna De Apoyo and instantly fell in love with the clean clear waters of the lake. The lake was secluded and Shamus wanted to surround himself with nature. He chose to create a villa that encompassed a Canadian cottage feel.
Shamus has 10 years of experience in Nicaragua. He lives on the property in his own home apart from the villa with his partner Sasha.
As a Canadian, Shamus' pass times included skateboarding, snowboarding and mx. He built his own private skatepark outside his bedroom (far from the villa).
Sasha is a Vinyasa and Sivananda trained yoga teacher. She offers group and private classes and is in charge of retreats at the lodge.
Both share a love for art and many of their paintings are displayed around the property.
