Staying with Daina was a good experience. Daina was very nice and very helpful, offering wonderful suggestions on where to eat, what to do, how to get places. Since she works from home, she was around often to answer any question.
The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed (ceiling fan and a floor fan, which both worked well). The dogs are great and keep to themselves for the most part. Very friendly! We had trouble at times with the WiFi, but we're finding that to be the case elsewhere in the country too.
Overall, a good experience and a very pleasant host! Airport pick-up was incredibly helpful too. I'd definitely stay there again.
Affordable, comfortable, accessible to the center of the city, and Daina made us feel like we were at home. I definitely recommend her room as an alternative to the expensive hotels in the area. Her house is super cool, airy, and safe. My boyfriend and I felt at home while we stayed in her private room. Two thumbs up!
Nous avons séjourné deux nuit chez Daina. La chambre et les services proposés sont fidèle à ce qui est proposé. Notre petite chambre était parfaite et nous avions notre propre salle de bain ainsi que l’accès à de l'eau potable et tout cela à 5 mn du centre de Granada. En plus, nous avons eu la chance de pouvoir discuter et échanger sur l'expérience de Daina au Nicaragua... et Coco est adorable ! Belle rencontre, beau séjour... seul bémol, c'était un peu trop court !
I didn’t get to meet Daina though that did not affect our interaction and when I had any queries, she replied helpfully. Her levels of engagement were consistently high throughout the process though for an issue with the internet, it would have been good to have more easy (direct) access.
The taxi driver she arranged for pick up at the airport was very good well priced and subsequently I used him a couple of times more.
In her absence, Daina left a comprehensive note and information about Granada, so that was really helpful. The house is in easy distance from the centre and is a pleasant walk to where you may want to visit.
I have to say something about the neighbour’s dog. It did create a racket and was disconcerting though maybe that was more being alone in an empty house than anything else.
I booked Diana's room for my brother and his friend for a few days during the beginning of a month long excursion in Nicaragua. Both of them enjoyed their stay with Diana as well as their time in Granada. Diana communicated really well with me and was very professional and kind. I look forward to returning to Granada and staying with her for a few days! Thanks Diana!
Daina's apartment was exactly as pictured, and provided a good jumping off point for a few weeks in Nicaragua! The apartment is only about 4 blocks from the main street and center square, so we were able to walk everywhere.
Clean sheets, towels, and two fans were provided. They also have two adorable, friendly dogs. Daina also helped arrange taxi transport for us from the airport, which was very helpful, as the Managua airport can be slightly overwhelming initially. Overall, a good deal in a basic, clean, nice, apartment!
Daina was out of town so we ended up having her wonderful home all to ourselves.
The area is very close to downtown and she has very nice neighbors. Her home is clean a very welcoming and should we pass through Granada again hopefully she has space available.
We had a pleasant time at Daina's home. She offered all kinds of information about Grenada and gave us a good recommendation to check out the Monkey Hut and Laguna Apoyo. Her dogs were friendly and well behaved. We found her home to be a clean and relaxing retreat from the city, and it was nice in such a touristy town to be in a local's home.
If you need a clean, basic room in a nice Granada style home, Daina's place is a great value. Her home is only a short walk to main tourist/nightlife area of Granada, making it a perfect place to stay for the one night we were there. Daina is very friendly and knowledgeable about Nicaragua, a perfect contact for budget minded travelers.
Daina also provided us with convenient/on-time transport from the airport for a fair price. If you don't need a car, its pretty nice sitting back and having someone else do the driving after a long flight.
Had a great time visiting Granada and staying with Daina. The house is centrally located within easy walking distance to local sights. Would definitely stay there again if I return to the area.
