Other things to note

The last one and a half kilometers to reach this hidden place are on a dirty road. Although it can be done with a normal car, a four-wheel drive is easier. The dry season runs from December until May. In any of the other months it could happen that you have to wait for half an hour until a small river caused by heavy rains has dissipated. You will not be the only one, so it will be a nice opportunity to meet some of the local people here.

Where to start..........? I was lucky enough to stay in one of the houses on Nel and Joops amazing property and it is without a doubt and without exaggeration one of the most beautiful, peaceful and tranquil places I have ever "lived" at. Never did I feel more zen waking up in the morning from the sound of all the (wild) tropical birds that happily live in the orchard (including the guardabarranco, Nicaragua's national symbol), or the wind that is always sending a refreshing breeze through house and head : ) The views of the lake or the orchard are an absolute treat, no matter how often you see it. The houses are super well equipped and nice and cool, the matrasses are the best and the warm shower is a gift every day. Nel and Joop are truly amazing hosts that are always willing to see if they can help you in whatever way needed. Transport to and from the house is easy peasy thanks to the cheap local caponera's (that you can even call and they will drive down to the house to pick you up!). If you want to use your legs to get to the main road, it is only a 20 minute walk through the little community of Nimboja, where the people will greet you with friendly waves and kind smiles. Laguna de Masaya is at about an hours' walk from the house. I could go on forever writing about how I fell in love with this place (and all of its inhabitants), but I think you get my point... I would recommend this place to anyone, but be careful; you might never want to leave! I wish I didn't have to...

Response from Nel:
I know what you mean, because I feel the same about the surroundings. It is an honour to live in this community. The inhabitants are giving a lot back to us. It was from the first moment when my husband Joop showed me what he discovered, that I realized that something special was happening and although it is not in the centre of the highlights of Nicaragua, it is a special place. Thank you very much for this review.

Villas Vista Masaya is a beautiful well furnished house with two single beds, a well equipped kitchen, clean drinking water, a nice warm shower and a beautiful terrace with rocking chairs and a hammock. The beds are comfortable and the house was very clean. The house is situated in a tropical park with breathtaking views over the lake of Masaya. We had some nice walks in the park and enjoyed the beautiful trees and birds. The Dutch owners also live in a house in the park and they are very helpful and friendly. They speak Dutch, English and Spanish and they know everything about the surroundings and they will advise you where to go. We loved our trip to the active crater of the Masaya volcano and the walk in the tropical forest on the Mombacho. We visited the colonial city of Granada, everything within an hour drive. We will definitely come back!

Ik heb mijn hele leven gewerkt in de ontwikkelingssamenwerking, eerst vanuit Nederland en de laatste twintig jaar in Nicaragua. Ons verdiende geld hebben we in de ontwikkeling van het park gestoken en samen met lokale ondernemers alles gemaakt. Ik vind het heerlijk om in de natuur te werken samen met de medewerkers. Er zijn zoveel mogelijkheden om alles nog mooier en aantrekkelijker te maken. Ik vind het fijn om het gasten naar de zin te maken. Ik hou zelf van comfort en gezelligheid, maar het huis moet ook snel schoon te maken zijn. Eten klaarmaken is één van mijn hobby's en ik ben verrast blij als ik zelfs in Masatepe op de markt broccoli kan kopen of andere lekkere groentes. Ik vind het leuk om nieuwe plekjes te ontdekken, zodat ik dat door kan geven aan onze gasten. Maar ik vind het ook heerlijk om op ons terras in de hangmat te genieten van een goed boek. Ik hou van nieuwe uitdagingen.
