This is the best deal of your life!

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Ghent, Belgium March 04 2017 - March 09 2017

This is the best deal of your life! Very high quality location to create a beautiful dream. High quality furniture and decoration which gives you that high end fancy feeling. Professional communication with the owner to help you out foe requests and questions.The service is also very neat. When service is done it looks like it is ready again for the photograph team that makes the cover of an interieur magazine. Want to feel like a mafia boss or moviestar? Book this for as long as you can. You will cry the day you have to leave. Imagine you wake up, see a beautifull view of palmtrees and birds.


Do a morning dive in the water instead of your morningshower. You climb in one of the free to use peddle boats or boards. You peddle to an other island with a restaurant for breakfast/dinner, passing monkeyisland with the mombacho vulcano as part of your view. Peddle back, visit beautifull Granada and invite people you meet. Be the talk and the hero of the day. Book this before the owner realizes this is unsurprised. I have been in regular normal boring hotels for similar prices. Enjoy isla pura Vida, you will not regret! Cheers!

A whole island to yourself :)

From Miami, FL (USA) December 29 2016 - December 31 2016

I have stayed in countless Airbnb and VRBO properties, this one takes it all. The property itself was beautiful, but the views surrounding this island is out of magazine. My son would often stay "mom this whole beautiful island is just for us?" Luckily, I would reply yes. Furthermore, the staff was exceptional: Roberto, Sebastian and the lady were gracious and kind. If you needed help with anything they would help you with a smile.


The property comes with kayaks and you have a restaurant 2 minutes from the house. You could easily go have lunch (yummy fried frish) and kayak back to the house to watch the sunset from the hammocks. If you need to leave the island, Granada is 15 minutes away and offers great restaurants.

Beautiful property in wonderful setting

From Oregon, USA December 22 2016 - December 24 2016

This is a beautiful house on a private island in lake Nicaragua. We really enjoyed our stay here with a boat tour of the islands and a visit to see the lava flow at the volcano in masaya.


A few small things that could have been improved. We had asked for the staff to cook a simple dinner because we knew the kids would be hungry when we arrived. But when we got there, there was no water and dinner wasn't started. I coached Maria a little on how to cook dinner without water and by the time we finished eating, Roberto had got some water delivered. Roberto and Sebastian were particularly nice.


Unsurprising for island living, there were quite a few ants in the living room but no biting bugs.


The house is lovely though and sitting out in the garden, eating breakfast with our friends felt incredibly peaceful.


James was very quick to communicate and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Magical getaway!

From Tola, Rivas (Nicaragua) October 17 2016 - October 20 2016

Thank you Dave and James for organising our stay. It was an outstanding experience and the house is my favourite house on the las islets. We live in Nicaragua and have been often on the Island cruise and it is a beautiful architecture. To see it the first time from inside was even better.


Nicely chosen modern furniture mixed up with typical colonial antique furniture. The local family that is living on the island in a separate building is very helpful and respectful. We never saw but when we needed something they have been around immediately and help us. Kayaking was fun and the kayaks are for free. There are also a few restaurants around where you can even go by kayak. Best get away for friends and families. Thank you

5 days in Paradise!

From Paris, France August 05 2016 - August 10 2016

We spent 5 days at Isla Pura Vida and we were in a real PARADISE! The villa is beautiful, very well decorated and the team Sebastian, Maria and Roberto were like a family with us. Las Isletas is a real fantastic spot to discover and its really easy to take the boat to go to Granada what we did almost every day. Do not hesitate to experimente this great place!
