An old Nicaraguan beach house one block from the bay. The space is 1 large room opening onto a partially enclosed porch. It offers no frills and affordable yet somewhat rugged living. We're in the center of town with access to stores and restaurants.
The space includes 2 rooms, one large, one medium sized, and a private bathroom. The larger room is the main sleeping area and has beds and fans. The front room is a closed in porch area with ocean views, a hammock and a table. The space has a private entrance for guests to use.
Guests have access to their own bathroom, however, there is currently no kitchen access. The space also has a private entrance.
Interaction with guests
Pedro will greet guests upon arrival. He can help guests with any questions or needs they may have. He speaks primarily Spanish, however, I will be reachable via email for any questions guests may have who speak English or French.
Other things to note
The house is located in the center of the town, near to the beach, stores, bars, restaurants, markets, and clubs/discos. Because it is so central, it can be very noisy at night. In particular, on many nights very loud music from a nearby disco can be heard. Therefore if you are a traveler that values peace and quiet, this may not be the house for you.
Another important thing to note is that, like many of the homes in San Juan Del Sur, the shower is cold water only. But this is not a problem for many people as the warm climate makes the cold water feel very refreshing!
Lastly, the town of San Juan Del Sur experiences power blackouts from time to time. These occurrences are not much of a bother but something that travelers should be made aware of :)
Smoking is allowed in the front porch area only.
Pets are welcome! But please let us know in advance if yours will be joining you :)
I am a retired teacher and an artist who has spent many years running a computer literacy project in the countryside of San Juan del Sur county, Nicaragua. We bought the house as a base for the project. The project is over now so we have decided to share our space with international travelers. We are a half block from the beach and you can see the ocean bay from the front porch. The space is rustic and you can hear music from the beachfront discos on the weekends but it is the perfect landing spot for folks on the go with limited finances. I have spent many hours working on my art in front of my fan with a cat or two lounging on the bed.
