The Space This is a HUGE bedroom, with three doors opening out to the garden. Lie in bed and listen to mangos fall while watching hummingbirds hum. Attached bathroom is entirely yours and includes a Roman Bath, a kind of mini-pool which you can fill up and use to cool yourself whenever. Toilet and shower, too, as well as an outdoor shower (for all guests' use; coordinate timing for privacy ;p ) close by. There is a tv, as well as an office area in the room, and a shared living area with another tv right outside. Oh-- and a hammock in front of the room in case you want to get just a little closer to those hummingbirds.
Pets considered, w/ deposit.
Breakfast is included FOR THE FIRST MORNING AFTER YOUR ARRIVAL in the reservation. The breakfast is "desayuno tipico" including: gallo pinto (Nicaraguan style rice and beans), queso fresco (Nicaraguan cheese), tortilla, eggs, juice Guest Access Privacy is important to everyone. Your room is lockable and there are 3 different salas (open rooms) that you have access to. A couple of hammocks, rocking chairs wherever you turn... you won't lack for places to sit back and relax, with or without company. Best of all, there's a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal and there's -always- free coffee. Interaction with Guests I currently do not live full-time at the house, though I did live here almost 10 years. A very good local friend of mine, Angel, helps me manage the house while I am not there. Angel speaks English and Spanish and can help with anything during your stay. He has access to the house and may be there at some points in the day in communal areas taking care of house things. Otherwise, he is just a phone call away. Mariela the house cleaner is at the house in the mornings Monday through Friday. She does not speak English, but she is very sweet and fairly shy. My hope is that you enjoy feeling like you have your own home but with a helpful local readily available. The Neighborhood On the edge of the city center, this house is ideally located. Far less noise and yet "town" is only a 5 minute walk. There are a few good restaurants right in the neighborhood. If you want to get to the beach, it's only 30 minutes by car or local bus. Getting Around León is congested in the center and driving is definitely -not- a pleasure here. The best way to get around is by foot or by taxi. Taxis have a fixed rate, so no worries about haggling. If you are traveling by car, there's usually street parking at the house. If you are traveling by car, there's usually street parking at or very near the house. There's a secure parking lot close to the house with both covered and uncovered parking for rent. If you give advance notice, I can check if there's space available. Other Things to Note This is a third world country. You probably knew that already, but just thought I'd remind you there are sometimes little quirks, like, say, power outages. That's Nicaragua, not me. But don't worry-- seems they never last more than an hour anymore and maybe only once every few months... hurray for progress :) If you've never been here before you should also know that English is not commonly spoken so it helps if you have some basic Spanish. As mentioned elsewhere my very good local bilingual friend, Angel, who can be hired to give guided tours or Spanish lessons, is your principal contact when I'm not here. ...
