Las Penitas house description

Oceanfront living in small fishing/surfing/swimming village. Two bedroom home with detached two-room bathhouse. Well-equipped kitchen, and breezy outdoor living areas for dining and reading/visiting/entertaining. This home is in a Nicaraguan style, where only the sleeping, kitchen, and bathing areas are inside. View the ocean waves as you cook... and as you shower! Bedrooms are a good size, with quality bedding, mosquito nets, fans, shutters for privacy, and handy shelving for clothing etc. Good (English) library selection, comfy hammock-chairs to snooze in while escaping from the heat (and/or recovering from your mornings' surf-lesson or swim) in the open breezeway. High walls on three sides ensure privacy, while allowing total enjoyment of the amazing garden and ocean/beach view and access. Pick limes from your own tree to make a fresh salsa... or wander down the street or beach to rent a bike or have a beer or lobster dinner. Bus service to the city is about 50 cents US$, taxi is about $10.00, and groceries in Leon are astonishing inexpensive. This is a place to de-stress, relax, escape from the challenges and busy-ness of our modern-day lives! No televisions here.....!
We can arrange accommodation in Managua (if necessary - depending on your arrival time) and transportation to our house... a two hour taxi ride for about $80.00 US.

Please note: We have a private suite upstairs.. but we will NOT be there when you are... :)

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We live in British Columbia, Canada... enjoy spending time here in our beautiful spring, summer and fall seasons. We have the best of both worlds... spending at least part of our winters in Nicaragua.

                      Why the Owner Chose Las Penitas:
                      We bought the house in Las Penitas because we absolutely fell in love with the setting... gorgeous, quiet, empty sand beach with volcanic rock perches; perfect sunsets every night; friendly people; warm ocean swimming; inexpensive living, dining, fishing, surfing; proximity to the fascinating historical city of Leon. We love the friendliness of the Nicaraguan people, the predictably excellent (hot, sunny, dry) weather, and the opportunity to use the Spanish language. Our friends and family enjoy the house regularly as well, and it is a great place to gather and visit and relax.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We bought this house from a Nicaraguan family that wanted to move to the city, and then, after renovating to a more acceptable-to-north-american/european standards, have each year brought more amenities and creature-comforts (like quality sheets and towels and lighting and kitchen supplies) from home to enhance our experience! We designed the house to allow fantastic views of the ocean, from the kitchen and living areas (and the shower!). Everyone who has stayed in this special place with us (friends and family) or without us (as renters) has loved the time here - and we have had many repeat guests! The family that comes every day (for an hour or so) to care for our house (and us and our guests) is friendly, thoughtful, and very helpful. They will make sure that you have everything you need.. including (for an additional cost) cooking delicious fresh meals for you and doing your personal laundry. They have become part of our family.
