Zorro Rojo - Beautiful Beachfront Getaway with Great Surf

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,000 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

4 bed 4 bath and a pool

Situated in the quaint beach town of Las Penitas, this remodeled beachfront home is perfect for a relaxing, tropical beach vacation. Las Penitas is known for its long stretch of beautiful sandy beach, its low-key vibe, and breathtaking sunsets. This is not a mainstream tourist destination, but a safe, tranquil, friendly beach community of a few expats and Nicaraguans alike. There are plenty of restaurants and activities such as horseback riding, fishing, surfing, and nature tours. However, a quick 15 minute car ride to Leon, brings more conveniences like a movie theater, supermarkets, banks and international restaurants as well as architectural attractions, a botanical garden, and a world heritage site.

The house has 4 bedrooms, 1 second-story bedroom with a king size bed, 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, and the fourth bedroom comes with 2 single beds and a bunk bed. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and A/C and in-suite bathrooms, except for the 4th bedroom (the bathroom is in the common area). There is plenty of common space; a patio around the pool with several hammocks, a 2nd story rancho perfect for checking out the surf or sunsets, and 2 additional sitting areas with sofas and comfortable seating. There is a fully equipped kitchen off the living area, perfect for entertaining. Housekeeping is included and cooking services can be arranged.

Contact us for more info, hope to see you in Nicaragua soon!

Great town, great house, great caretakers

  • 5 of 5

We had an great time at this home as well as touring the nearby town of Leon and the volcano. The only downside was that we did not have wifi at the home as we were told the provider was having an issue with the satellite connection. If you need internet access, I highly recommend you bring a back up of some kind. We appreciate that the rental company did their best to accommodate us and we kept in mind that this is not the U.S., so things like internet, electricity, etc. are not as reliable here but that certainly did not spoil our good time! The caretakers, Pastora and her Husband did a great job making sure we had everything we needed. Pastora's cooking was amazing and we miss her very much!

Perfect beach house & what a great cook!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our family adventure trip in Nicaragua, and one of the definite highlights was this amazing house on the beach. 4 bedrooms surround an open courtyard, kitchen and pool. Having a cook was the best idea of the trip! We were travelling with friends, and with all the hungry teenagers after hours in the surf, the tasty and filling meals Pastora cooked kept us all very happy. The beach is gorgeous, it's only 5 minutes to walk down the beach to a "surf school" where you can rent boards for $10 per day. The waves were ok for beginners depending on time of day. Long walks on the beach, beautiful sunsets... we miss Las Penitas and Pastora's cooking!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 4 nights at this amazing house right on the beach. It was clean, spacious, comfortable, and safe. Pastora cooked for us the entire time which was a highlight of our trip to Nicaragua. She and her husband kept very good care of us while we stayed there. We loved the little elevated gazebo that looked right over the water and the beach. It was a fabulous place that I highly receommend. There were 13 of us and we had plenty of room in the house to have our own space yet, many places to all hang out together. It was great!

Excelente lugar para vacacionar

  • 4 of 5

Casa Zorro Rojo es una experiencia muy buena, ya sea para vacacionar con amigos o familia. Es una casa que está equipada con todas las facilidades que se pueden necesitar en la playa y te permite tenes un tiempo ameno de relajación. La propiedad está frente a la playa con fácil acceso y la vista desde el Master Bedroom y desde el rancho es muy bella. Es una casa con mucho espacio y diferentes ambientes abiertos, lo que permite que haya una buena circulación de aire y sea fresco. La piscina es fenomenal para un chapuzón de agua fresca y dulce. La casa tiene agua reservada para cualquier inconveniente. Sin embargo, algunas veces el flujo es discontinuo. La cocina estamuy bien equipada. La casa esta muy linda y la recomiendo a todos.

Nice, spacious, clean...and a good cook!

  • 5 of 5

If you rent this house, make sure you sign up for Pastora to cook! She took great care of us. All of the rooms were clean with lots of room. We took our leadership on an overnight retreat and there was plenty of meeting room space in the main living area of the house. Brooke, the rental manager, answered emails quickly and was really helpful. I highly recommend this house!

Las Penitas is a classic Nicaraguan fishing village that has been slowly developing as a tourism destination as well. The town is quiet, the beach is beautiful and the sunsets are breathtaking. There are a number of restaurants and bars within walking distance that offer local seafood and North American fare. There is also a few surf spots within walking distance from the house. Besides enjoying the pool, hammocks, surf and sunsets, there are several activities to check out. Horseback riding, a leisurely boat ride down the estuary nature reserve Isla Juan Venado, and deep sea fishing can all be arranged.

Just a stones throw way is Suyapa Restaurant and Hotel where you will find a delicious fried fish on the menu. Don't forget to order the best rum in Central America, Flor de Cana, and for a real treat, order the seafood soup (con crema) at the Barca de Oro down at the end of the estuary. Its delicious!
