Daily cleaning, wifi, cable tv, wireless internet, washer and dryer you will want for nothing during your stay. The home is a perfect space for a romantic getaway, family vacation or group of friends looking to enjoy one space to for those conversations that go late into the night. Lofty ceilings, soft natural light, hand carved wood pillars, beams and stair cases, bright colors, local art and the owners attention to detail make Casa Yalula the perfect location for your stay here in Historic Granada- with incomparable access to all the historical sites, restaurants and nightlife you are here to experience!
Each room of Casa Yalula opens to the courtyard space- a highlight of Spanish architecture of this time. This allows for fresh air to fill the home and for conversation to flow effortlessly. This makes the traditional courtyard space the heart of the home so what better space is there for the 25m private pool. This incredible private outdoor area is the perfect location to catch some rays and enjoy a cold drink as you laze away an afternoon in the tropics. There is no more perfect place to escape the heat of the afternoon and focus on relaxing the often forgotten aspect of a vacation.

From the street you enter the home into the grand main salon, cooled by large ceiling fans, this airy space with incredible ceilings with the original wood paneled ceiling is decorated with hand painted tiles and beautiful locally crafted furniture, a 32” TV with DVD player and a large DVD collection are located in this room and once you see the comfy extra wide couches it’s likely a night in will be on the itinerary.
Located right off the courtyard/pool area is the kitchen space a mixture of modern appliances, custom furniture and traditional setting within the home. Natural light fills the space during the daytime hours and you need not go far from the pool for a snack or perhaps a refill on a cold drink. High quality stainless steal appliances, beautiful wood accents and a curated collection of art make this an ideal place to try your hand at creating a meal with Nicaragua’s bounty of fresh ingredients, all the kitchen tools you require are here for your use. The custom, hand hewn table will seat your entire group comfortably with more than enough space for eight guests making for a memorable space to enjoy a homemade meal.

Response from the owner Thank you for your review. One thing that you failed to mention in the review was that the door was not locked when your husband ran out for a few minutes. This is a very poor country and people will take advantage where they can and ,unfortunately, an unlocked door is an invitation to steal. I am sorry for your loss and I did contact the police several times for a report to send to you. I also spoke to you personally as did my manager more than once. I am sorry you feel we did not respond to you to your satisfaction.
I found this place after I called the owners of two other places I had wanted to rent but were already booked - both recommended Casa Yalula. It's perfectly located 1.5 blocks from the main squa… More
