About this listing
Newly constructed home with all you need for an extended stay in Leon!
Extremely cozy home with full kitchen, dining room, living room, 3 bedrooms (each with a full size or queen bed) and 2 full baths. There is a front and back porch-- either perfect for setting up the hammock and enjoying life!
Kitchen fully equipped with fridge, gas stove, toaster oven, blender, hot water pot and french press, as well as all of the pots and pans you need to prep meals for your traveling party.
The house is located in Barrio Sutiava and is a 15-20 min walk (2km) from the Central Park. It is a very quiet and safe barrio. Great for those that want a real "immersion" experience.
Within a few blocks radius, you have access to a gas station, two supermarkets, several internet cafes, a small market, numerous restaurants and the bus stop to the Las Peñitas beach, which is just 20km away!
This is my home and everything there is available for your use, but please make sure you leave the house exactly as you found it.
No house parties, no smoking inside the house.

I spent most of the last decade living and working in Central America. After graduating from the Wharton School at UPenn in 2000, I joined the Peace Corps, where I spent two years as an Economic Development volunteer in western Honduras. I then spent a year serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer in North Philadelphia and, in 2005, I moved my 2-yr old daughter and myself to Leon, Nicaragua to work for a small NGO focused on community development and intercultural exchange.
Having fallen love with Leon, I decided to purchase a small piece of property in Barrio Sutiava, which is where we have lived our entire time in Nicaragua. The house was designed with the help of an architect friend and took about a year and a half to finish. I have been thrilled with the result and am confident you will find the house as warm and pleasant as my daughter and I do.
We moved back to the US in summer 2011 and are now happily opening our home in Leon to other world travelers.
