Jiquilillo house description

If your idea of a great vacation is to travel half way around the world to find another Starbuck's, then this is not for you. If, on the other hand, you long to be at the edge of an authentic Nicaraguan fishing village, surf incredible waves by yourself or walk along a beach that Moon Handbook's Travel Guide describes as "relatively deserted, undeveloped and absolutely beautiful. This is a beach like no other.", then this is for you.

This two bedroom beach house,finished in 2010, is ideal for families or groups. The master bedroom has its own entry from the beach. The open living/ kitchen area is flexible and can adapt to your needs. Internet is available at the house with the use of a dongle. This retreat provides the perfect balance between private beach and an active village, with its dirt roads, thatched huts and an old lifestyle that is rapidly disappearing on the coast. There are no stores like you would find in the U.S. but you can find a lot of things you need from its Ventas, the small stores out of private homes, located 3 minutes walk away.

If you get tired of surfing the great waves right off your front porch, turn left at the beach to the turtle reserve with its undisturbed beachfront. Or you can turn right, watch the fisherman launch their pongas (fishing boats) and continue on to the village. Another option is to go to the Padre Ramos Wetlands Reserve, 1 to 5 day kayak tours with an ornithologist are available. This estuary is a "decidedly mellower place to swim than the ocean and is home to all the wildlife-especially birds-you could hope to see", as quoted by Moon's Travel Guide. Or you can lay in the hammock and watch the pelicans fly by.

Surfboards, surfing instruction, surfing and fishing tours, horses and about anything else you want can also be provided by Nicaragua Escapes. You can check their website for more information. They can meet you at the airport and provide transportation to the house and many other services.

You can easily walk to town and the caretaker can help you find your way around town. It's a ten minute walk down the beach to Monty's Surf Camp for a great meal and drinks. Beyond them is a fun place called Rancho Tranquilo, a vegetarian restaurant and bar. Close by Rancho Esperanza offers inexpensive meals and coffee. These are English speaking venues, there are also numerous Spanish speaking venues nearby including a new restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner about 4 minutes walk down the beach. The fresh fish dinner for $7.50 is not to be missed.

If you are a couple or a small family, I would like to recommend my son and daughter in laws house next door (VRBO # 272064). For groups of eight to twelve, rent both.

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About: I am a 97 year old woman whose grandson owns Nicaragua Escapes, a surfing lodge and restaurant, in northern Nicaragua. I fell in love with the area, and with the help of my son, designed and built, my beach house. This has been a family adventure with 4 generations involved at this point. I'm happy to be able to share the beauty of this place with others through my beach house. I hope you find the same kind of contentment I find while I'm there.

                      Why Jiquilillo:
                      I chose to buy this property and have the house built because it's beautiful, sunny, tranquil and near my grandson and his family.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Relaxing, relaxing, relaxing. My family, the beach, pelicans, ocean, sun, food. What more can I say?
