Need short-term housing on Ometepe

I am planning to stay on Ometepe for 4-6 weeks around next March. I could stay in a hotel, of course, and might do just that. But I'm open to a more interesting experience, whether a homestay with a Nica or expat family, housesitting, or just renting a house.

I'm a very quiet person, and my Spanish is "adequate". One of my goals is to really experience what it would be like to live on the island, and to interact with locals.

I'll either need high-speed internet access, or to be within walking distance of a high-speed internet cafe. By high-speed I guess I mean 256k or better. Easy access to VOIP long distance is a big plus.

Feel free to send me a private message if you have a specific offer. If you have general advice, the public forum is the way to go.

Thanks!

Ometepe homestay

Just wanted to pass along that I eventually found an Ometepe homestay option. Not sure if I'm going to use it or not, since someone here also offered a house for rent. But just in case it helps someone else:

I can't vouch for their services, but the web site makes it sound good. The email on their site doesn't work right now, but hopefully will be fixed soon.
