Property description

Oceanfront 3 BR/2BA Rio Dulce Playa Colorado Condo just completed in 2009 and fully renovated in 2014. True 3 bedroom ground floor unit with a direct view of the World Class Rio Colorado ('Colorados') Surf Break and the serene Rio Colorado = Ocean AND River views. Forget staying in other condos or houses that require you to walk or drive a long way to the actual surf break. You can sit on the couch and see what is going on in the water!

Look right out the window and you are just steps to the beach and the private beach club/restaurant. This is the premier location for the private, gated Hacienda Iguana Golf/Beach Resort. Stay in the lap of luxury - Leather Couches, Granite Counters, Italian Tile, Full Kitchen, Upgraded Cable TV and DVD player on a 43 inch Samsung Plasma TV, and iPod ready Stereo. Master Bedroom also has a 22 inch LCD TV with DVD. There are over 100 DVDs in the condo. Condo also has FREE WiFi Internet so bring you laptop or PDA. Included with your stay are all the amenities of Hacienda Iguana - Private Beach Club Membership, Golf Club Membership, Daily Maid Service, and 24 hour Security. This is a TRUE 3 bedroom condo with 4 single beds and a queen which means no couch sleeping or spooning! Every room has its own ice cold A/C and ceiling fan. Be wary of other units described as 3 bedroom as many of them are really 2 bedrooms with an alcove and a couch. We fully renovated the unit in 2014 with brand new reclining leather couches, new dining room set, new paint throughout the unit, and new ceiling fans.

Enjoy world class surfing, a mile long white sand beach, an oceanfront infinity pool, a fully functional golf course (very rare in Nicaragua), nature hikes, and snorkeling - all within the resort. Surf Rio Colorado ('Colorados'), also known as the Nicaraguan Pipeline, where most of the videos and photos of Nicaragua surfing are shot. It is a sand bottom beachbreak fed by the Rio Colorado rivermouth. You can see it from the Living Room or Master Bedroom and access is right out the back door! Also try Ponga Drops - a deep water reef that amplifies the swell for waves when everywhere else goes flat. Offshore winds from Lake Nicaragua over 300 days/year ensures glassy conditions all day long!

Be aware that the other condo buildings and several of the rental houses in Hacienda Iguana are a long way from the actual Rio Colorado surf break and require a long walk or drive. Be wary of places that describe a 'short walk to the break' unless you consider a mile a short walk. Villas Rio Dulce is the ONLY condo building on the actual surf break so don't be fooled by ads for 'Playa Colorado' oceanfront condos or houses.

Golf condos are on the golf course which is fine if you are there to play golf but they are not near the beach. This means that everyone in your group will have to come and go together if you drive. Our condo is right on the break so you can come and go as you please. One look out the window and you'll know what's going on in the water!

Onsite property manager lives in the building and can assist with transportation, food/meal plans, boat charters, surfboard and motorcycle rentals, and tours (Volcano, Canopy Tour, Rain Forest, Hot Springs, etc). 5 star super friendly service.

Located in the Private, Gated Hacienda Iguana on the Pacific Coast. Hacienda Iguana boasts over a mile of white sand beaches and the only functional golf course in Nicaragua. It is also the home of two of the best surf breaks - Rio Colorado ('Colorados') and Panga Drops. Access to these breaks is very limited to those not staying within the gates of Hacienda Iguana.

Other Activities: wildlife viewing, rock climbing

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Three guys who have travelled around the world surfing together. We came to Hacienda Iguana back in 2001 when the only thing that was there was the original clubhouse. We bought property there the following year and have been coming back as much as possible. When we saw the Villas Rio Dulce plans we were the first to put down a deposit on a condo as we knew this would the prime location in all of Playa Colorado. We have watched Hacienda Iguana grow and develop into the premier destination in all of NIcaragua. We love sharing our paradise with others and really like helping people plan their trip.

Why the Owner Chose Tola:
After traveling all around Central America and Mexico we finally found paradise. Hacienda Iguana is a quiet little private development with world class surf inside the gates. The beach is over a mile long and protected by large rock headlands on both ends. The development is full of beautiful natural scenery. It is also home to one of the only golf courses in the whole country. Villas Rio Dulce is a brand new beautiful building that sits on both the Pacific Ocean and the Rio Colorado.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The best feature of our unit is that it is ground floor and sits directly on the Rio Colorado Surf Break. You can see all the action right from the living room or master bedroom window. Other units advertise 'Playa Colorado' but Villas Rio Dulce is the ONLY building near the actual surf break. You can literally walk out the back door and get into the line up. No stairs, no elevators, no long walks, no boat rides!
