The space

Hefziba Bed & Breakfast is 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 6. The family room has TWO double beds (can be shared) and a sofa bed. It is equipped with AC and also has a private bathroom. 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!

The room can accommodate 4 guests. 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.

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!

Cynthia was super helpful and responsive leading up to our stay. Everyone at the B&B was eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We set up a tour when we arrived with one of the Nicaragua Tour Guides who was there to offer their services. The breakfast was great. The room was clean. The a/c and TV were a major bonus after a few weeks traveling in Nicaragua without either. We probably abused the privilege. I felt totally safe here. We were an easy walk into the town of Moyogalpa and not to far of a drive from other sights. We would happily stay here again!

This was such a charming Airbnb. Cynthia was very responsive through Airbnb and checked in with us the day before arrival to make sure we had a smooth check in. I spent 3 nights here with my husband. The location was a perfect base for our daily excursions. It's a short walk into town and we walked into town each night for dinner. The room itself was quiet, clean, and the AC got very cold. The cold shower was nowhere near as cold as I expected and it's quite nice after a long day of hiking in the heat. Everyone working here is so kind and willing to help. The breakfast (we got the typical Nica style each morning) was wonderful and super filling. We were grateful to have this breakfast before each long day. We would definitely stay here again.

This BnB is so charming. It is located slightly outside of the center of town so it is nice and quiet. It is very clean and the breakfast was phenomenal. I would certainly stay here again if ever back in Moyogalpa.

The location is away from the busier parts of Moyogalpa, but the seclusion was welcomed. It's just a short walk into town. The courtyard is lovely and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly! Breakfast was beyond our expectations.

Pay attention to the directions to get here. It is walkable from the ferry, but there is also plenty of transport options. The accommodations were rustic. Breakfast was great. Lester is very helpful and efficient with setting up activities. He will also rent you mopeds or motorcycles. Make sure the AC is working before staff leaves for the night. The roof is corrugated metal, and was noisy with wind and tree branches.

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!
