Esther has a very bright and sunny home in a beautiful, high end area of Esteli. From the moment we arrived to the time we left she was gracious, helpful host with a big smile and warm heart. When we first arrived she offered us cookies and freshly made juice from starfruit. Esther is a wealth of information about Nicaragua...

Esther and her place was all and more than I expected. We do not speak Spanish and wanted a safe, clean place to work from. Let me start with our first imagine of Esther's great welcoming smile at her gate to ensure we were at the right place. Food- all homemade. Esther's homemade kombucha gets your digestion on track!

After a long drive from Managua we arrived here to find Esther at the front gate with a huge welcoming smile on her face. I immediately felt at home and relaxed and knew we would have a great experience here. Esther showed us to our rooms which were super cute and comfortable and then brought us some juice out on...

Because we are Flemish we found it pleasant to speak Dutch with owner Esther who told us a lot about living in Nicaragua. It is a pleasant b & b with a nice terrace. The breakfast was almost entirely self-made and delicious. Good coffee too. For the price you can not find a better B & B throughout Nicaragua

The owner of this little place manages it in such a way that you don't feel your staying at a b&b but rather a friend's house. The owner is very knowledgeable in the whole area and super friendly! The whole place is very clean and the room we stayed had a nice feeling too it, very homely. The bathroom had...

I spent three nights in January at the end of my trip in Nicaragua. Esther is a lovely and friendly host that makes you feel very welcome giving you loads of information about Nicaragua and life as an expat in Esteli. The B&B is not is the center of Esteli but it can be reached walking for 30 mins or...

We loved Villa Riviera and enjoyed Esteli. Esther welcomed us and gave us lots of information about what to do and see as well as a great recommendation for dinner (Conifer). Our room and bathroom were nice and clean. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was large and delicious with all sorts of fresh organic options, served in her lovely courtyard/garden. Esther...

Based on the outstanding reviews on Tripadvisor, we stayed at Villa Riviera for two nights in Jan 2015 and were very pleased. We used it as a base for a long day trip to Miraflor. This is a tiny place, with just 2 rooms for rent and completely managed by Esther herself. The B&B is surprisingly far from the center...

This is a lovely place to stay. First of all, Esther is very helpfull and makes you feel welcome in her own house. The breakfast was good!!! No gallo pinto but yoghurt, cereals and fruit. Very nice. The garden with hammock is a good place to relax. The Somoto canyon is a nice daytrip from Esteli. Although it is not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
I'm a Dutch expat who always wanted to start a B&B in another country. In 2009 I sold my house in the Netherlands, quit my job as a bank manager and bought a ticket to Ecuador. I lived there for a while,but it wasn't the place for me. I then decided to go for my second choice; Nicaragua. I arrived here in Esteli in 2011 and fell in love with the place and the people and bought a house. I'm an outgoing person who speaks English, Dutch, German and Spanish fluently. I used to speak French as well, but somehow when I learned Spanish, the French got a bit lost along the way :) It has always been my pleasure to welcome people to my house and pamper them with great atmosphere, food and drinks. Here I would like to do the same. I would like to make you feel very welcome in my B&B. Hope to see you very soon :)E ... more   less
