The house will apeal to artists since it is covered in murals and small solar lights. Big patio with two flower gardens of 16sqmeter. Fruit trees: Mango, Dragonfruit, jocote, papaya, different herbs, lots of flowers. 100 meter from the beach in a safe quiet area. 5 min walking from restaurants, 50 meter from shops where you can buy basics (bread, pastas, meat, eggs, oil, phonecredit etc.
I have a cat Mussolini who visits the house in the early evening.
Needs and Animals
- My pets
- A cat
Basically what I want is people living inside the house because august untill december are the low months of the year. Since I am away on a long term family matter, the rest of the year it is a vacational rent house. This family only speak spanish, es does the whole town so I need people who speak spanish.
I only have a cat who basically takes care of himself. What I like housesitters to do is teach at least once or twice a week english to the children of the street. (books and whiteboard are at the house) . Because its a long sit, I do ask you to pay for the electricity, gas, water and internet use. With normal usage this comes down to about 55-60 dolar a month.
You are allowed to make small trips in Nicaragua as long as you don't stay away for +2 weeks at the time .
I have 2 bedrooms available for max 4 people. I want min. 2 people as housesitters. Subletting the other room is not permitted! If you get guests (friends ) of yourself please let me know before.
- 50 - 150 m² (530 - 1590 sq. ft.)
- 20 - 200 m² (210 - 2110 sq. ft.)
- Bus stop
Comfort and Luxury
I have a child of 2 and have a playground for him (sand area- grass garden for playing, charcoal paint area and walking cars). So the place is suitable for children!
(for family is accepted with max 3 children.)
Tourism and Leisure
You are there during rainseason, still Leon area usually have rain during the afternoon/night and the rest of the day the beach is still very nice. You must accept temperatures of 34+ though! I have simple fans but no airconditioning and between 10 and 15.00 it can get really hot. So normally people get up really early in town to do most things.
Fresh tortillas and cooked beans can be bought in the morning (before 8! ) from our caretakers. You can also ask them to cook for you (but you have to pay them, But Maria cooks really well!) laundry, there is a place for handwash. There is no machine. But you can also pay Maria to do your laundry and it gets really clean and is cheaper than laundry service in Leon! ;) and you help a poor family.
Poneloya, Leon, Nicaragua
From Tuesday 2017
To Friday 2017
Its a small village you are in. You live among middle class and poor families. Not many expats close by. So you must like to be around the locals, this is the type of person I am searching for. People who like to live without too much luxury.
Wifi is good, though you are at the beach in Nicaragua, not always reliable. If you need to be on skype all day I wouldnt do it because sometimes skype isnt that clear. Other things work very well.
There are a lot of restaurants close by.
I am not that keen on people who invite other people they meet in. I have had a case of theft by 'friendly'people invited by guests. Apart from teaching the children (who dont have to enter the house for this) and my caretaker family I don't like people being invited in. Sure if you have a friend you already know visiting you, please let me know and its alright (but your responsibillity).
