Expansive views feature breathtaking panoramic vistas over the orchard & fields across Lake Nicaragua to the windward shores of the Nicaraguan & Costa Rican mainland. As you walk directly out of your bedroom onto the 2nd floor deck for your morning coffee, you begin to appreciate the magic of being on the largest lake in Central America. On the ground floor, an open floor plan design incorporates the living, dining and kitchen areas, protected from the sun by a wrap-around veranda: ideal for this southern climate. The modern food prep area has large counter spaces and is fully equipped, from the cast iron fry pan to coffee grinder and blender. The large frost free fridge will keep all of your fresh food and beverages in fine form. The 1,000 sq. ft. covered deck wraps around the lake side of the house offering a comfortable lounge area, outdoor dining area for 9 and numerous hammock spots. A second bathroom with tiled shower enclosure completes the ground floor. The onshore breeze allows this home to enjoy pleasant temperatures year round without air conditioning. There are fans throughout the house for those extra hot days! Guests often walk 1 km to neighbourhood beach bar, Samaritano or take a short flat bike trip (2 km, < 10 min.) to one of the island's most popular and picturesque beaches, Punta Jesus Maria. It is a 20 minute bike ride to Moyogalpa, the island's main town. This town has a dozen restaurants, banks (ATM) and friendly welcoming locals. A bus passes near your house travelling in both directions on a regular schedule coordinating with all departing foot and car ferries. Taxis are also available by arrangement. 20 minutes in the other direction brings you to the town of San Jose /Alta Gracia. Santo Domingo beach is a lovely place to spend the day. Although the farm is private, the village of Los Angeles is at the top of the picturesque driveway. A traditional square is where the locals and visitors gather at sunset to play, enjoy the lit basketball court or just laze on one of the many park benches. On weekends and holidays, the street vendors set up barbecues. The numerous island rodeos, the world famous fresh water spring and pool, the river kayaking, volcano climbing, waterfall trekking will give you plenty to do and see (if you can drag yourself away from the property!). Known as the “Oasis of Peace”, this island and this community enjoy a tranquility and happiness that brings visitors back time and time again. There are no fast food joints, no traffic jams. Wifi is Fibre Optic so you have good connections depending on power on the Isla. Please note that this house is located in Nicaragua, and although the power infrastructure has been improving, there can be power outages on Ometepe and throughout the country. Come, relax, enjoy! Pick fruit from the many fruit trees surrounding the property...chill!!! Keywords: waterfront, acreage, private, comfortable, beachfront, outdoor/indoor livingMore

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We booked our trip a few months out during the pandemic but as our dates came closer it turned out we were unable to travel to Nica due to Covid restrictions. When I canceled we were informed we wouldn't be receiving a refund due to the proximity of our stay (three weeks). I contacted the owner and they initially refused any refund. After some strenuous negotiation, they agreed to only refund 25% of our costs. All of the other locations we booked understood that this was out of our control due to the pandemic and gave us a total refund. I guess this location was more concerned about taking our money than being reasonable people that understood this was out of all of our control. And it wasn't like they missed out on booking the house to someone else since all of the flights into Managua were cancelled. I generally don't book hotels anymore as I prefer the hospitality of privately owned homes, but this was the first time I felt like we were just a paycheck. I highly suggest avoiding this rental until this pandemic is over and even then, don't expect any common decency if you experience any unforeseen problems.

We stayed here with family and thoroughly enjoyed it. The property is amazing and so is the house. The house has more space than you'll need and the large decks are great for lounging in the hammocks or enjoying the farm view. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Ometepe Island on Lake Nicaragua is one of the world's great beauty spots (much admired by Mark Twain), and this secluded house, with its acres of private grounds, is the perfect place to experience the tranquility of the island. It's fully equipped down to linens, cutlery and wi-fi, and it's an ideal spot to explore the unique culture of the island by bike, car, or the funky local bus service. Bars, restaurants and grocery stores are conveniently close. The beach is a short bike ride away, the water is warm, even in December, and the views are breathtaking. We relaxed on the large decks in hammocks and spent many evenings enjoying wine by candlelight in the balmy tropical breeze, but don't stay up too late, because it's worth getting up early to sit on the balcony outside the bedroom and listen to the dawn chorus and the sound of the wind in the palm trees as the sun rises. Not to be missed.

Well I haven't been to all the houses on Ometepe but the place is huge and specious so I doubt there are any as large and nice as George's place. One of the biggest houses in Ometepe! George is great too. He has been going down there for years so really knows the area and a ton about Nicaragua. I can't wait to go back! Thanks for the amazing hospitality George!

George and Karen have taken great care in making a charming local feeling home with charming comfort throughout. There's incredible views mixed with a treehouse like feeling of being in the garden. It's ideally located in light of its "not far from town" and near to the famous spring swim spot where Tarzan seems to live. We look forward to our next visit and encourage anyone to hop on the great ferry and make the crossing to Ometepe to stay at this place

Loved loved the farm in Los Angeles, on Ometepe! George and Karen are fabulous hosts, the beds are comfy, the rooms are cool. There are two roomy bathrooms and there is HOT water. There are hammocks to siesta in and watch the horses frolicking. And the deck is ideal for watching the spectacular sunsets. It's easy to get around the island by scooter and there are plenty of bike choices free at the Finca Macedonia!
