Independent holiday rentals on a beautiful farm
Villas Vista Masaya is a small farm with a lot of different trees and plants, managed by Nel, a Dutch woman. It is located 1 ½ km outside Masatepe, a typical Nicaraguan town of the general region of Nicaragua.
You can rent a private and cosy house that can accommodate two or four persons. It can be your place to relax while you discover Nicaragua during your day trips, for a winter stay or for business travellers. Wifi is good.
All guests have access to a shared non-chlorinated swimming pool and trails through the jungle. If you just want nature and quiet, stay on the farm. Sunrise is amazing, the colours of the plants, flowers, seeing the birds are all very pleasing. If you imagined what Nicaragua was like, it would be the plants, trees, etc of this place.
Fruit to pick
Our own coffee
The 2-bed (60 m2) and the 4-bed houses (90 m2) are perfect for living in nature, while still having most of the basis comforts of home. The large terrace with hammock and rocking chairs has a panoramic view. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a separate bathroom with warm shower. Each of the eight houses has a fully equipped private kitchen with a four-pits stove and oven. It has a minimalistic flair to melding in with nature.
Upon arrival, you will find your beds ready and made. The single beds can be joined together. We can clean your house on request. We offer complimentary filtered water and two towels per person. The windows have screens so fresh air can enter. Ask for a baby camping bed and chair when needed.
You will find a stock list in your house and additional information about the farm, day trips and Masatepe.
It’s important to also note that the season fruit is there for sharing. Mangos, mandarin, banana, guanabana, and others are there. Plus, there’s fresh coffee directly from the farm that you can have every morning in your place. It is also for sale. Farm eggs you can buy nearby.
You can find reviews on Airbnb and VRBO.
For a two persons apartment $30 for a four persons apartment $40 per night. The minimum stay is two nights. Ask for long stay prices.

Please mention to us to organize your pick up at the airport by our taxidriver from Masatepe at the best price possible. He also offers day tours, but buses can take you to the main towns, even Managua. You can walk/mototaxi to one in 20 minutes or so to Masatepe. If you wish to use trails outside the farm, go outside the gate and turn right. While it’s quite far downhill (and uphill coming back!), whether you go to the crater lake or the other direction – it’s quite a beautiful experience and goes on for a long time. You pass through dozens of typical Nicaraguan homes. It’s nice to do and feel part of the community (who are very welcoming and accustomed to Nel’s guests).
When you prefer private transport, we can inform you about reliable and cheap renting cars.
One of the nicest reviews we received from others:
“While there are many viewpoints to go around – mine would be to skip Granada – visit there while staying here. I stayed in Granada and then here for a week – this was much better and I should have stayed a full month instead of one week. It was cooler outside as well. Hard to beat this place if you want to decompress in peace, if you like nature and if you are looking for living in Nicaragua as it should be!“
Come and join us. Nel started working and living in Nicaragua more than 25 years ago and she does not regret this decision. Space, close to nature, living with other people in a safe community where people still have time to greet and meet.
