This is a private home, a duplex with an upstairs and downstairs unit. This is the upstairs unit, where the owner stays a few months a year. 'Casa 141' is so named because kilometer post 141 was located in the sidewalk in front of the house, signifying 141 kilometers from Managua, and the farthest mile marker in the South of Nicaragua. The original post was acquired from the surveyor workers when the distances were re-calculated in 2010, and can be seen on the patio.
There are not many nice places in the center of town. Two blocks from the beach, restaurants, market, and bars. No rental car needed, walk everywhere, and walk home from everywhere even late at night. Large two bedrooms with large private bathrooms, endless solar hot water (not nasty electric shower heads), air conditioning in the bedrooms, nice well stocked kitchen, laundry room, and large balcony to hang out and see everything going on in the street. Big patio for entertaining and herb garden for cooking. Queen bed in front bedroom, two twin beds in 2nd. Cable TV, fast internet.
Unlike most of the high end rental properties in San Juan, this is in a nice neighborhood in the center of town, where the Nicaraguan neighbors sit out on the sidewalk in the evenings. There is Doña Anita's pulperia next store, and a high end bakery across the street. From Google maps, the house is catty corner from the point of the triangle building, or a block from the market, two blocks from the park, 1 block from the bars, and 1.5 blocks from the beach.
