A group of us stayed at this villa while visiting Nicaragua. At first I thought the pictures on the site were "too good to be true" but the view was even better in person. The villa was amazing, the staff were amazing, and Nicaragua--the people and the country--was amazing. I can't say that enough. The property manager helped us plan day-long (San Juan) and short (Granada) getaways as well as boat and carriage tours. Even walking along the road that the villa was on led us to restaurants (Katherines) and interesting places at the bottom of the Laguna (Paradiso Hostel & Restaurante). We also had a few days off where we just went for walks and stayed at the villa by the pool. Rum is cheap. That's all I need to say about that. ;) I have recommended this place to all of my friends, and I believe a few have already booked. My girlfriend, friends and I plan to go back.

From the moment you are picked up at the airport by Lionel to the excursions in Grenada , Lake Nicaragua to feed the monkeys and to Masya to see the night viewing of the volcano you know you are in for an awesome adventure. Shopping in Grenada and Caterina was excellent for souvenirs and rum and dinner at Katherines, Paradisio and Bucaneros made for some great meals during the week. But the real highlight of the trip is the back yard with the pool at the house you call home for the week. The view and relaxation you enjoy is incredible and the wildlife in your own backyard is something out of the Discovery Channel. Vultures, Night hawks , Bats, Owls, multiple bird species, horses, chickens, roosters, Iguanas , Gekos, Howler Monkeys right next door and of course every species of ant known to man. And of course Pinto the dog from across the street who was our favorite visitor and became part of our family for the week. Norman the pool and grounds keeper and his sister Xudjan the cleaning and housekeeper were fantastic all week and took care of all our needs. We cant wait to go back next year. Loved this beautiful country. The Kennedy,s

My family and I recently spent 8 glorious days at Casa Castillo. Pictures don’t do justice of this beautiful place. We spent our mornings and evenings in the infinity pool listening to the howler monkeys in neighboring trees, watching the bats and night hawks taking dips in the water from the pool and hearing the call of owls on the rooftop. During the day, we would gaze out onto Laguna de Apoyo and Mombache Volcano while taking in the scents of the hibiscus flowers and other flora. The space inside is equally beautiful boasting three bedrooms, two bathrooms fully equipped with showers and a bathtub downstairs. The kitchen is open concept and ideal for cooking meals and the living room is comfortable. I would highly recommend this house to travellers visiting Nicaragua for the price point as well as the vistas and scenic beauty.

Had a great trip, the villa and its location made it extra special. The view is amazing, we found ourselves entranced in it day or night! Lots of activities available from the location (easy to book, etc). Lots of room in the villa, bedrooms and living areas very comfortable, but to no surprise we found ourselves hanging out more on the patio than indoors. Great outdoor table and lots of room for those who like the sun. Cleaning staff were great, everything including the pool kept clean each day.

Thanks so much for your great review....I heard you went on some great adventures touring 6 beaches on ATV's, touring Ometepe Island, etc. We love it when guests try new things as we then can recommend it to others. Your adventure becomes our adventure Hope to see you back soon Thanks again from the Nicaragua For You family.

Casa Castillo is situated overlooking the lagoon with views of Mombacho volcano in the distance, the view is stunning and must-see! I could sit all day listening to the birds, book in hand in front of the pool. The house and property have everything you could ever need, with three large beautiful bedrooms, two bathrooms, air conditioning, wifi, etc. and is decorated with beautiful local Nicaraguan art. It's hard not to unwind and relax while here. Day trips are easy from the house, the resorts on the lagoon are only a 2 min taxi drive and costs about $6 USD for both ways, the swimming was fun and refreshing the water is clear and leaves your skin feeling amazing! We day tripped to Granada, which was 45 min away, Masaya Volcano, about 20 minutes away and San Juan del Sur about 2 hours away. Arianna, the property manager for Casa Castillo, was wonderful and helped to arrange everything we needed at the house, called us taxis, gave recommendations. She was only a WhatsApp text away and helped with anything we needed including last minute recommendations and transportation for hiking the Mombacho Cloud Forest on a whim. We were well taken care of by the Nicaragua for You team and would recommend Casa Castillo for anyone looking to visit Nicaragua for either an adventurous or relaxing vacation, we really enjoyed the best of both worlds while staying at Casa Castillo.

Casa Castillo was wonderful. The view was breathtaking. The pool was refreshing and lovely. The house was well managed and clean. The property owner was most helpful for touring suggestions and arranging taxi services. Truly a place where we could feel totally relaxed and refreshed.

If you are looking for a safe adventure, this is the place.....from the moment we got there to the moment we left( and we did not want to leave) it was just that an adventure. The property is beyond beautiful, tranquil and safe. We traveled with a group of 7 and never felt confined. We spent our days out and about but the evenings were spent enjoying the home , pool and gardens. You need to be organized for day trips as you need to arrange a taxi for any outings. We had no problem doing this as the property manager was accessible at all times...Granada is a amazing city, you could spend a few days just wandering around, so much history.. carriage rides, boat rides , so much to see and do...but just sitting in the gardens and the pool is enough too.....the best vacation ever, am I going back, definitely...

All 9 of us stayed there and enjoyed the facility and view very very much. Besides needing more toilet paper and the Wi-fi issues (due to the wind there was no internet during our stay)... but having no wifi was no problem, since there was so much time to relax, swim and go for a walk to the lagoona. Very nice house and very comfortable. I recommend.

I want to thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! In Nicaragua the infrastructure and utilities are not the same as other countries. They can have issues at times especially in bad weather. That being said, we take all reviews very seriously and make changes if we can. Since your stay we have had service on our system and upgraded the system to with stand greater weather conditions. I believe this problem will not happen again and we would like to thank you for your comment. When guest arrive we supply full double rolls of toilet paper in the bathrooms. This allows people time to buy their own toilet paper as they buy their own groceries. This also saves on excess use and non toilet uses. If for some reason you run out before you have the chance to get groceries our staff will simply get you another roll. We have not had a complaint until now regarding this process. Most guest understand and appreciate our prices being very competitive which allows all people the chance to enjoy our property. This is why we do not supply unlimited toilet paper. I hope you understand and we really look forward to your return. In fact, you were such good guests that there will be a gift waiting upon your return. Cheers from the Nicaragua for you family!

We loved being at Casa Castillo to play by the pool, rest and enjoy a view like no other. Tonnes of room for our family and all the amenities. Very central spot to stay in Nicaragua as many of the most popular tourist attractions are within a 1/2 hour drive. ie. Catarina market, Granada, Masaya Volcano, Hesbel Antonio Picado Prado boat tour, ziplining, Monkey Hut, Katherine Restaurant and much more.

Our family had a great vacation week here. This home has all you could ask for - comfortable high end home with modern conveniences. Only five minutes from the relaxed vibe of the Paradiso, where we swam in the thermal waters of the crater, played games and enjoyed a resort experience with great food and drinks. Back to our own private spot to enjoy the views and swim and BBQ and chill out. Many adventures as well. Arianna arranged transportation for us to Katerina for aritsan shopping and views, Masaya to explore the volcano, Granada for a boat trip of the islands, San Juan del Sur to enjoy the beach and Mombacho cloud forest hiking. We were sorry to say goodbye to our great staff and lovely Nicaragua.
