The space

Hefziba Bed & Breakfast is located on the beautiful and peaceful Ometepe Island in Rivas, Nicaragua. We’re located just on the outskirts of the town of Moyogalpa; a fifteen minute walk or a three minute mototaxi ride from the port.

Hefziba currently has seven rooms available for booking. This listing is for ROOM 4. The basic room can accommodate 4 guests and has a shared bathroom right beside the room. All rooms include breakfast for 4 (additional breakfasts require a small additional fee paid at B&B). All rooms have two double beds meant for sharing so please inquire for bookings where sharing beds is not desired and we will do our very best to accommodate all your needs.

NOTE: We do NOT have hot water showers. This is common in Nicaragua. Sorry =(!. Also, WiFi is available in the living room area but it is not a very strong connection so please keep in mind if you plan to work while you're here!

Message from "host": Although I spend a lot of time on Ometepe, this is not my permanent home. It belongs to my grandmother who you might get to meet if shes not in the capital city of Managua! My cousin Memo lives here permanently however, so he will always be available to you on site along with the help of our translator friend, Lester =). My family on the island does NOT speak English which is where I do my best to help them with reservations and communicating with guests before hand to assure a smooth reservation and stay. This is truly a family effort and we do hope you appreciate all the effort that goes to making you feel at home! I may be present during some stays, but not for all. I will however, be fully available to you for the booking process and in helping you make your stay as comfortable as possible :) Please feel free to ask me any questions regarding your stay or island trips that you may want to make! (eg. volcano hikes, zip lining, la Punta etc). Lastly, we ask that you please respect our property (rooms, appliances, bicycles and motorbikes that are available for rent). We do reserve the right to charge any damages to cover for repairs! We will be fair with you so please be fair to us! =). Thank you!

Way too expensive. Room was old small and built really cheaply, not really nice... important stuff was missing like mirror in the bathroom or some place to put soap on in the shower. Bathroom was also really small. This room is worth max. 20$ in my opinion. Nevertheless staff was really helpfull and breakfast was tasty also.

Cynthia was not there during my stay but ensured that there was someone there at all times. Leather which is the person I dealt with primarily was fantastic. He was friendly and provided help with anything I needed. The accommodation was basic but comfortable and clean. There were three different complimentary breakfast options and I tried each during my three night stay and they were good. The ac was excellent and welcomed after long days in the heat. My only complaint would be the wifi. It was extremely slow. I knew it was only in common areas before my stay but it will still very slow while in those areas. I would recommend this to anyone staying in the moyogalpa area for its comfort, breakfast and great service.

The pictures don't do this place justice. Our stay was fantastic - if you're coming from the Moyogalpa Ferry Port, catch a moto-taxi to Casa Hefziba for around 50 cordoba. Memo, Lester, and all of the people working at Casa Hefziba were great. The rooms are comfy with great water pressure (opt for an A/C room if it's going to be warm) and the grounds were beautiful. I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent place to stay, very good breakfast, best coffee I have had yet in Nicaragua, and we enjoyed the convenience of the motorbike. The staff was great as well. Peaceful and relaxing stay. Thank You!

This place was nice enough. It was close to everything and the breakfast was good. The rooms were a little tired and full of ants. We hired a motorbike from them but the bikes in the town looked newer and better value for money. We probably should have gone there instead.

Great place to stay at ometepe! Cynthia is so friendly and helpful, even if we didn't have the chance to meet her. And she answered all our questions at once. The stuff and all people around are amazing. The place is not in the centre of moyogalpa, but in walking distance, so everything is easy. Thanks for everything, the good information about what to do and where to go, the organization of everything. Great room, great common area, great garden, great breakfast. Great place to be!

We LOVED our stay here. Pre-stay info & help was terrific & staff were awesome. Big shout out to Lesther who was a great help too on ground. The place is lovely- very clean, quiet - yet easy access to everything. If you're going to Ometepe, this is a great & great value place to stay. Oh! & the breakfasts were delicious!

Hi there!

My name is Cynthia and I am from Canada/Nicaragua. I love animals, food and travelling! My family and I are from Nicaragua; a beautiful little country in Central America, full of hidden gems! It's beautiful landscape, people, and foodddd make for a perfect place for a relaxing get away for travellers. Our home in Nicaragua is on an island: Ometepe! My grandmother and cousin live in this shared home full time but since we have many rooms available, we decided to make something special of this place and share it with people around the world. That's how our Airbnb journey started; with our B&B on the beautiful Ometepe Island =)

I do my fair share of travelling as well and I'm so thankful for all the people I've had the oppurtunity to meet over the years. My favourite visit so far: Thailand!!!

Happy Travelling!
