Front of Casa Amarilla in Leon, Nicaragua.


This property lies just three blocks north of the Cathedral in the Avenida Central. Despite its central location, this street is extremely quiet and residential in feel. Can be used as a very comfortable single-family residence, or as a commercial space with two apartments.


An old building with character and very recently carefully restored. This property has two large entrances and each gives way to a sala or front room. Currently the two salas connect to one another and share the two restrooms behind them. A covered patio looking into the garden connects the backs of the two salas.

Beyond this more commercial space are two complete apartments, each with its own living area, two bedrooms, bathroom, and open kitchen. All of this is bordered by a lush garden whose central feature is an enormous, mature, fruit-bearing mango tree. The two apartments are separated by a whimsical stone wall for privacy.


The property can be used for a wide range of purposes, commercial or residential or a combination of both. A business can make use of either a single sala or connect the two. Possibilities for any kind of retail space, an office, or a restaurant. If the back is used as a hotel, guesthouse, or bed and breakfast, the front can serve as a common area or lobby for that business.

The two apartments can also be combined and used as your own residence. If you prefer to have a pied à terre in León, you can keep one apartment for your own use and rent out the other for medium- and long-term rentals. Why pay for hotels when you could have a real home base? Or you can rent out both. There is an increasingly necessary market for foreigners who come either for work or for pleasure for too long to stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast or guesthouse and too short to rent a house. There are many non-profit organizations (NGO’s) working in the León area, and volunteer tourism is growing.
