About this listing
This beautiful house is a perfect spot for a tranquil beach vacation, whether you are a group of friends, a family, or even a couple. Beautiful sunsets, great surfing waves right out front, and delicious seafood dinners are footsteps away. Enjoy!
Situated in the quaint beach town of Las Penitas, this remodeled beachfront home is perfect for a relaxing tropical vacation. Las Penitas is known for its long stretch of beautiful sandy beach, low-key vibe and breathtaking sunsets. This is not a mainstream tourist destination, but a safe, tranquil, friendly beach community of a few expats and Nicaraguans alike.
There are plenty of restaurants and activities such as horseback riding, fishing, surfing and nature tours. However, a quick 15 minute car ride to Leon brings more conveniences like a movie theatre, supermarkets, banks and international restaurants.
This house has 4 bedrooms, 1 with a king sized bed, 2 with queen sized beds and the fourth comes with 2 single beds and a bunk bed. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and A/C. There is plenty of common space: a patio around the pool with plenty of hammocks, a 2 story rancho perfect for checking out the surf or sunsets, and 2 additional sitting areas with sofas and comfortable seating.
There is a fully equipped kitchen off the living area, perfect for entertaining. If you don't feel like cooking while on vacation, we can arrange cooking and cleaning services for your stay.
Contact us for more info, hope to see you in Nicaragua soon!
Interaction with Guests
My company, Aurora Leon Realty manages the rental for the owner. After you check in with us at the office, you can go to the house and start your vacation. We have a complete concierge service where you can schedule tours, massages, cooking and cleaning services, and transportation to and from the airport, or cabs in between the beach and Leon.
Las Penitas is a little beachside village with a lot of charm. There is a bourgeoning tourist scene, while remaining very authentically Nicaraguan.
Call us to arrange cab services, or hop on a bus to get into town. (Leon is 18km to Leon).
Please respect the house, and the caretakers.
From Dec 20, 2015 - Jan 04, 2016 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
Beatiful space on a semi-private beach with an amazing view of the ocean. Brooke was very responsive to texts, emails, and transportation requests. There is a caretaker on the grounds who made sure everything was in good order. The space is just as advertised. We would definitely stay there again.
This was our first time in Nicaragua so we didn't really know what to expect, but the house was one of the highlights of our trip. It's right on the beach, so it had amazing views, and only a couple minutes walk to the local bar and surf board rentals. The little town of Las Penitas is really great; there's lots of locals who get to know you and lots of great restaurants. We felt comfortable the whole time we walked around. The rooms are very clean and big, the pool was a great escape after a long day in the hot sun, and the house keepers were very friendly. We did have an issue with two of the A/C units (just from overuse I guess) and Brooke got a repairman there that day, which was not expected at all. Brooke was in constant communication with us, making sure the A/C got fixed and making sure the house was what we expected. I would recommend the house to anyone; I would definitely go back if I can. One side note, buy your groceries and drinks in Leon before you go to the house. There is a very small store down the main road, but you can't buy enough food for dinner. Although all the restaurants are very inexpensive and quite good. You will definitely enjoy your stay.
We had such a wonderful stay at Casa Zorro Rojo! I'd recommend the house to any group looking for a place to stay in Nicaragua! The home itself was great as well as its location on the beach - it wasn't crowded at all so we felt as if we had the whole beach to ourselves. Its proximity to Leon made day trips for exploring and groceries easy.
Brooke was very responsive and everything went smoothly re travel and arrival.
Thank you for a wonderful trip! I hope to be back.
The place was just like the pictures showed, plenty of space for 10 folks to crash. The beach is right there and it has a feel of a private beach. The neighborhood is safe and it has a couple of rustic bars. There is not much developed near by, so if you are looking for a place to get away with your friends, it is perfect.
We had a very good time in Casa Zorro Rojo. The house was nice and the surroundings beautiful. The femal caretaker was a very good chef!
The place was great! We had a group of 7 and the caretakers on the property were very welcoming. The house if just off the beach with lot's of places to visit nearby. Brooke always returned emails in a timely manner. Thumbs up to this place if you are looking for a place to stay in Las Penitas.
