Escape to the jungle in this spacious, off-grid Homestead House on the slopes of the Maderas volcano on Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua. Relax in the comfort of hammocks, wifi, en-suite indoor/outdoor shower, organic greens garden, large porch, and incredible panoramic volcano & lake views. Walk just 10 minutes to the Maderas volcano trail entrance, or 15 minutes to the center of the town of Balgüe! Perfect nature getaway for nature loving and adventurous couples, solo travelers, and friends alike.

The Homestead House is part of Selvista Guesthouses, a "barefoot luxury" collection of jungle guesthouses on Isla de Ometepe. The island is a lush and tropically forested UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, the largest lake in Central America.

The entire space is solar-powered and hand-built using local materials, for a unique lodging experience with direct access to the "jungle" of the surrounding tropical forest and organic permaculture farm. Perfect for nature lovers and travelers seeking tranquility and outdoor adventure.

The house features: full-size bed with mosquito net, laptop-friendly desk with chairs, large book selection, large wall fans (for day use), small bed fan (for night use), natural water filter, hammock chairs, large hammock, large private porch, and incredible panoramic views of the Concepción volcano and Lake Cocibolca.

Your stay also includes: secure wifi, daily housekeeping, farm-fresh breakfast, free parking (4x4 vehicle or equivalent required), full access to the open-air kitchen, full access to in-season farm fruits and organic greens garden, and a free 40-min tour of the farm property.

Balgüe, Departamento de Rivas, Nicaragua

My 1-hectare (2.5-acre) Selvista Guesthouses property features a total of 4 guesthouses with a central open-air kitchen. It is located next to a 9-hectare (22.5-acre) educational organic farm called Project Bona Fide.

The entire site has been completely reforested over the past 15 years. You can find many trails, tropical fruits, plants, trees, butterflies, birds, and monkeys throughout the property. The organic greens garden above the kitchen features spinach, lettuce, oregano, basil, rosemary, amaranth, arugula, and hot peppers. The property at large includes chickens and ducks (enclosed area), pigs (enclosed area), coconuts, bananas, mango, jackfruit, breadfruit, starfruit, canistel, and many other exotic species to learn about and explore.

From the house, you can embark ON FOOT to:

- Tour my 2.5-acre farm property -- FREE with your stay!
- Tour the 22.5-acre Project Bona Fide property (2-3 hours)
- Walk 10 minutes to Finca Magdalena to visit the coffee harvesting area, old hacienda, hostel/restaurant, and entrance for hiking trails
- Walk 15 minutes to the heart of the town of Balgüe to visit local restaurants & bars, shop for basic groceries, or catch a public bus to Ojo de Agua or other parts of the island
- Walk 20 minutes to Café Campestre, voted #1 restaurant on Ometepe
- Go trail running through the shaded cloud forest of the Maderas volcano
- Hike a short trail on the lower slopes of the Maderas volcano to see 10,000-year-old ancient petroglyphs (1.5 hrs)
- Hike partway up the extinct Maderas volcano to the "mirador" lookout point (3-4 hrs)
- Hike all the way up Maderas to the lagoon crater (8 hrs; certified guide required)
- Take a short bus ride across the isthmus to hike to the crater of the active Concepción volcano (10 hrs; certified guide required)
- Treat yourself to a holistic massage, right in your house in the tranquility of the jungle!

Local restaurants and small grocery stores in the town of Balgüe are a 15-25 minute walk from the property. After dark, from 6:30-9:30pm, the friendly Selvista security guard is happy to accompany guests along the unlit 5-minute stretch between our farm entrance and the well-lit, populated main part of town.

Be sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp, as it gets dark around 6pm throughout the year!

Designer, plant explorer, trail runner, foodie, ecological builder and developer, dog lover, farmer. I am originally from New Jersey, USA, but have lived and worked in Nicaragua for almost 2 decades. Over the past 15 years I have completely reforested and developed my farm property on Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua. Together with my local team we welcome guests to 5 houses & suites in a peaceful tropical forest, just walking distance from exploring town, hiking a volcano, and swimming in the lake. At Selvista Guesthouses we look forward to sharing with you the BEST "jungle luxury" experience on Ometepe.

În timpul șederii

I am always available for guests via Airbnb message, and I am occasionally on site when I'm not working on landscape design projects in other parts of Nicaragua.

My entire property is run by a friendly team of Spanish-speaking employees between 7am-1pm. Your farm-fresh breakfast is prepared each morning by the breakfast cook Clemencia, and your room is cleaned daily by two friendly housekeepers Estela and Lissethe. The plant nursery, garden, fruit forests, and farm animals are cared for by several friendly farm employees.

To help you make the most of your stay, I send guests a list of activities suggestions and contact info before your stay (also printed version in the room). Via internet, you can organize many activities directly with English-speaking providers while also supporting local guides and small businesses. (See this listing's Airbnb Guidebook below.)

During breakfast hours, guests are welcome to chat in the kitchen with your friendly English-speaking host about things to do on the island.

You can also purchase bottled water, soda, beer, rum, and wine at the "honesty bar" fridge in the open-air kitchen (cash only).
