Las Penitas is a beautiful and laid back Nicaraguan Fishing village. Tourism is growing in the area so there are a number of restaurants and tour operators, but the feeling is still very authentic Nicaragua! You can buy fresh fish right out of the boat and have our wonderful caretaker family cook it up for you Nicaraguan style. You will also have plenty of opportunity to practice your spanish, take a boat ride through the protected mangroves or paddle out in the water and catch some waves with the local guys. The days will also pass quickly in a hammock or in the pool, but the colonial city of Leon is only 15 minutes away and there you will find an incredible amount of history, architecture, great food and Music. Las Penitas offers the best of all worlds!
Year Purchased: 2013
About: We are a family from Cincinnati, Ohio and fell in love with Nicaragua in 2007. We have two small boys and wanted to make Nicaragua a permanent part of their lives growing up. We love Nicaragua for the natural beauty, the cultural immersion and—most of all—the wonderful people.
Why Las Penitas: We chose this house most of all for its great location. It's right on the Pacific Ocean next to the low-tide surf break. It's a 15 min (or less) walk to all of the restaurants and hotels in Las Penitas, yet only a 15 min drive to the historic colonial city of Leon, with its universities, museums, and churches, including UNESCO world heritage sites.
Las Penitas is a quaint fishing village where you can watch local families catch their dinner—and yours. On the weekend, you will see local holidaymakers from the city of Leon. During the week, you will have the beach to yourself (but restaurants remain open).
The Unique Benefits at this House: The most unique aspects of this house are the open layout, the views and the pool.
The house features two balconies and two patios, with plenty of hammocks and rocking chairs made locally. Have dinner prepared by our lovely caretaker, Mary, in the outdoor dining room. Later, enjoy a book in the upstairs breezeway featuring the same 'mimbre' furniture used by the new upscale resort Mukul which has been featured in the Wall Street Journal.
Every bedroom in the house has a view of the Pacific Ocean, and even the kitchen has a great ocean view. Listen to the waves crash as you fall asleep (you don't even need the air conditioning).
The oceanfront swimming pool is one of our kids' favorite spots. It features steps into the pool and goes to a depth of about five feet.
Finally, relax in the oceanfront, shaded rancho with locally made hammocks and hammock chairs. Watch the incredible Las Penitas sunsets every night while you have a local beer or locally made rum.
The house features a full-time, on-site caretaker who can handle cooking and cleaning. The caretaker and her family live in a separate residence on the property.
