A casita is a small house or bungalow. It may be the main house or set in the back of the main structure, like a carriage house. Casitas are usually a one bedroom/one bath arrangement with a small kitchen and a storage room. TodayÂs developers are creating village casitas in Nicaragua on a grand scale, offering extra bedrooms and amenities found in higher priced homes in the United States.
As more retirees and young families discover the benefits of making their home in Nicaragua the need for homes has increased. Developers have created planned communities in the most desired locations in Nicaragua. The communities are often centered around the interests of the homeowner, such as golf, surfing, or those who are interested in preserving the ecology of their new homeland.
No matter where we live there seems to be lines running overhead for one utility or another. Not so in the planned communities in Nicaragua. Everything is underground to preserve the beauty of the country.
Village casitas in Nicaragua (like the ones found here: http://www.granpacifica.com/village-casitas.html)are clustered together in a neighborhood usually bordered by a golf course or park-like grounds. Most casitas are built using designs chosen and approved by the developer but in certain planned communities lot owners may submit a plan of their choosing for review by a planning commission.While cookie cutter homes are not the plan for the casita villages the community does want a homogenous grouping of homes.
Each planned community will offer its own brand of amenities from basketball courts equestrian arenas, swimming pool, restaurants, grocery delivery, Spanish lessons, and almost any other convenience conceivable.
Property owners pay an association fee in these planned communities and if they need to be away everything on their property will be maintained as needed.
Village casitas in Nicaragua vary in size from about 800 square feet to around 2000 square feet. The 800 square foot casita would be a one bedroom/one bath home. The largest casita could have two or three bedrooms and and two or three of baths. All casitas have a front porch for sitting and most a small lot but some villages offer half acre or larger building lots.
Casitas are built to strict specifications, finished with fine hardwoods and ceramic tile. They come equipped with all appliances, furniture if you want it, and you can even arrange to have linens and housewares provided.
What do village casitas in Nicaragua cost? Not nearly what you would think. Construction costs are far less in Nicaragua and you get a lot of home for your money.
