Casa Flying Pigs is perfectly located in Granada, with an easy walk to the town's historic center in one direction and two major grocery stores in another. Flying Pigs is nicely decorated with Nicaraguan pottery pieces and photos of local scenes. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable with the living area benefitting from a full wall of window overlooking the pool. The property is well maintained and includes all the necessary dinner and cookware along with many thoughtful details which made the stay enjoyable. For example, there was a pound of coffee provided for us along with sugar, salt & pepper, zip-lock bags, aluminum foil and plenty of drinking water. These were unexpected amenities and we appreciated the convenience. The house rental includes daily housekeeping service which insures that you always have more than enough clean towels and linens. The property is very private, secure and in a safe neighborhood. GPS (Granada Property Service) was wonderful to work with. They were very helpful with suggestions about things to do in the area, transportation options and restaurant recommendations. They patiently answered all of our questions about day trips we planned and made it easy for us to travel independently without having to pay tour group prices. Granada is nicely located for day trips to Masaya, Mombacho, and the Lagoon Apoyo....all of which I recommend. But what I loved best about this property was the pool! It was WONDERFUL to be able to take a quick dip to cool off from Nicaragua's heat and humidity. Refreshed and revitalized you could either go out for more adventure or be lazy and read/doze in the hammock. Either way, another quick dip was always in order : ) Staying at Flying Pigs was a great choice - it was nice to have a house to come home to after a day of exploring Granada and the surrounding area.

This was our first time staying at this house and first time ever dealing with GPS Granada. The service was excellent, they had everything ready for us, thanks guys at GPS.
The home is simply very private, large backyard with green grass is pleasant to the eye, the place is extremely peaceful, if privacy is a must consider this rental, everything was impeccably clean. We would definitely return to Granada and stay at House of Flying pigs.

We loved the tranquility and serenity of the house, the place is very private, secured and quiet, the surrounding garden is beautiful. The city center is within walking distance. The pool was clean and refreshing; the pictures depicted on the website don't show everything, as the house is actually even better, beautifully decorated. We also loved the staff at GPS, they greeted us cheerfully and they had everything ready for us upon arrival. We enjoyed our weekend stay in Granada at Casa Flying Pigs. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some relaxing time. The house and its surrounding were immaculate and clean. We look forward to returning to Flying Pigs (GPS) on our next trip to Granada. Thanks to the staff at GPS for making our stay so pleasant.

I wasn't sure about renting this house at first because there were no reviews. From the pictures, everything looked pretty good. In reality, it was even better. The best part about the place is the fact that the windows of one entire wall of the second floor, open completely, overlooking the plunge pool (which was quite nice after a day of walking around town or touring the surrounding areas) and the big backyard. The service staff came regularly to clean the house, tend to the yard and clean the pool. The managers even stocked the fridge according to our requests and had fresh drinking water available at no extra charge. There were 4 of us, and we felt comfortable (and more than secure if that was an issue) there the four nights we were in Granada. The house is located just a few blocks from the main plaza (an easy walk we did many times). I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Granada who wants to be on their own in a very comfortable setting, yet within a stone's throw of all the action. (I would recommend having them set up a driver to pick you up from the airport, as it seems addresses are hard to come by in Granada, if not much of Nicaragua, so hailing a taxi or getting a shuttle on your own may come with its own problems)

Liked best: It was very easy and very comfortable.
Liked least: The bed in the room downstairs was more of an afterthought, as it is inflatable, but it was fine.
