Completely furnished Emma's Guest Cottage is just 5 minutes from the central colonial city of Granada. We are 'just off of' Lake Nicaragua - with its 100 islands and wonderfully refreshing breezes. This is a Resort-like setting, with a refreshing lap swimming pool, and a professional trampoline, swing set and outdoor shower - all next to the pool patio area. There are several terraces/lounge areas on the property, hammocks and swing chairs, plus the hundreds of plants and trees in the tropical gardens are everywhere. There is even a five-tiered turtle fountain; the turtles (of course) reside in the lower level. Their frog friends are nearby, as are many birds - including hummingbirds, chocoyas and butterflies. You have your own washing machine, your own back-up water tank and a stainle...Completely furnished Emma's Guest Cottage is just 5 minutes from the central colonial city of Granada.

You have your own washing machine, your own back-up water tank and a stainless steel propane BBQ grill to cook outdoors - whenever you like. There is a nice hot water shower in the bathroom. The high-ceiling great room and bedroom have three ceiling fans, and there are often nice breezes off of the lake. The cottage is nestled into the corner of a lush tropical garden setting. It has a fully equipped kitchen, plus cable TV and its own modem with fast WiFi. WiFi is also available throughout the property - including around the pool. There is a king-sized and/or queen-sized orthopedic bed with luxurious 440 count cotton sheets, pillow cases & there are nice & luxurious, large cotton bath towels. As mentioned previously, there is an outdoor shower by the pool, plus nice & comfortable lounge chairs - both outside & inside the pool (float chairs)! (BTW, WiFi works great here!). As well there is maid service (as needed), & a cuidador/guard who can wash your vehicle. Free long distance phone calls to the U.S.A. & Canada. English & Spanish are both spoken here. A 4 x 4 Honda CRV, a motor scooter & bicycle are available to use/rent as needed. It is very peaceful and safe here at Emma's Guest Cottage. This is a nice resort-like, family setting, which is great for computer work, reading, relaxing or siestas! The cost is $39/night with a nicely discounted rate for longer stays. Longer term monthly stays with us are encouraged and warmly welcomed. The monthly fee is discounted even more during the off season. More
