A friendly home in Northern Nicaragua with great surf nearby. The house is located near the small village of Aserradores and has many tropical fruit trees to provide shade and food. A short walk to the beach, nearby hotels and restaurants.
The home has one private bedroom and another studio room. There is a double size bed in the private room and two singles/bunk bed in the open area. The kitchenette is in the open area and has a refrigerator, propane stove, sink, small table, cooking utensils, blender and coffee maker. The kitchenette is a simple extension of the studio room but has a counter top, a single shelf and a sink. There is a full bathroom in the house. There is also a wash area outside for clothes or cooking utensils. There is a hammock that can be strung up for guest use and also some mosquito nets under the bed. Currently, water is being trucked into a few holding tanks on the property because the well water is unreliable. Beto arranges for water to be delivered and costs approximately $40 per shipment. The situation is manageable but it is important to note that guests pay for the water. The amount of water used varies depending on the guests usage and number of people staying. Please note that the $40 water fee has been included with the cleaning fee.
Guests will have access to the entire house and property. The house is located in a Nicaraguan village. There is a small store just down the street as well as a couple of local restaurants. The beach, Hotel Chancletas and Marina Puesta del Sol are all about a 15 minute walk away. Beto, my neighbor across the street and his wife, Oneyda, are managing the house and will get you the keys and help you get set up.
Beto, the manager, will show you the house and help you with anything you need while you stay here. He can fill the water tank for you and explain where to buy drinking water. Please note that the $40 water fee has been included with the cleaning fee. He also has access to the bodega (storage room) if you want to borrow a couple of bikes. However, they may need air and a bit of TLC to get them going. Don Mercedes has a little bike repair shop at his home and does a great job. His house is across the street from the Chancletas entrance.

Please make sure the keys go back to Oneyda and Beto across the street.
Beto can help you arrange what you may need. He can schedule a cleaning or help set a car rental with Don Indulfo.
