Nic_mapCasa Familia is a beautiful, five bedroom, three bath Oceanfront Vacation Rental in Nicaragua, located two hours on newly constructed paved roads from Managua Airport, or three hours from Granada. Casa Familia has beach frontage and is located amidst palm trees and flower gardens in the quiet, safe and friendly village of Poneloya. You can watch endless sunsets over the pacific from the large second floor terrace, hang out at our ranchito on the beach or take a refreshing dip in the custom swimming pool.

Just 19 kilometers from historical Leon, Nicaragua you can explore the Poneloya and Las Penitas Village with its fishermen, restaurants and small hotels as well as the countryside, including the natural reserve of Juan Venado Island, the volcano Cerro Negro and the Cathedrals of historic Leon.

Casa Familia was completely renovated in 2010 and improved with a wonderful second story sunset terrace, private swimming pool and special touches such as hand painted ceramic tiles in the bathrooms that depict Pelicans and Sea Turtles. Casa Familia is decorated with art by local artists and you can smell the flowers in the breezeway while enjoying fresh made juices and authentic homemade dishes. Caretakers live on the property and are available for cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Depending on the season, pick oranges, limes, mangos or coconuts from trees right on the property.
