This is our primary residence. We only rent the house when we are not here therefore the house will be private for you. Our personal bedrooms will be locked and you will have access to the entire bottom floor of the house.
Please note that we will be traveling, so you will have the house to yourself, although only the two downstairs bedrooms will be open for use. The rental amount is for 1-4 people. Both rooms accommodate up to 2 people for a maximum of 4 people. If needed, we can arrange a twin mattress on the floor of the beach front room if guests do not want to share the bed.
Interaction with guests
We will reachable by airbnb correspondence and by phone, as well as through my groundskeeper and my cleaning lady.
Other things to note
We live here full time, so please be respectful of our home. We do have a loving dog, Tahoe (male), and a tiny affectionate cat, Jerome (female). They are great friends and know how to take care of themselves, but they will want to get to know you. My caretakers will feed them, but please know that they are used to loving friends and guests. So if you are afraid of dogs or do not like cats, this may not be the house for you. Our house is cleaned 5 days a week, and we have had many visitors allergic to cats who have not had any reactions to Jerome.
I'm a retired primary grade school teacher, competitive road cyclist, and avid snowboarder from the San Francisco Bay Area. We moved to Nicaragua 2011 for what we thought would be a one year family sabbatical in a different country with a different culture and language from our own.
One year turned into five. In 2014 we began construction on our beach front house in front of Panga Drops, our most beloved surfing wave in all of Nicaragua. We moved into the house in May of 2015 and began renting the private casita in November.
We have three horses off site named Ketchum, Luna, and Colorado (named for the skiing, not the local beach). We call Colorado by his English name though, which is Red. We also have Tahoe, our super lovable dog who will greet you every morning if you want him to, and two kittens, Judah and Jerome, who are named after our daughter's favorite chairlifts at Sugar Bowl in Lake Tahoe. Judah spends his days outside exploring the nearby jungle, so we rarely see him. And Jerome turned out to be a girl. The cats and dogs will not go into your casita. If you are afraid of dogs or have allergies, please let us know in advance.
Our maid is also an amazing chef. She would be happy to share local Nicaraguan cuisine with you and show off her amazing cooking skills for a little extra money. Just let us know in advance if you'd like a meal or two and we'll let you know what to pick up at the store on your way to the casita.
We thoroughly enjoy having a good time and we want our guests to have an amazing time too. Your casita is completely private and you have access to our beach front pool, BBQ, fire pit, and hammocks. We request that behavior in these shared area is respectful at all times.
We look forward to hearing from you!
