Tola house description

Welcome to one of the newest homes in Hacienda Iguana. This 3 bedroom, two bath home with private pool and BBQ is nestled in the valley jungle and right alongside the Rio Dulce (Sweet River) that can be paddled to reach the Colorado Beach. Our pristine beach is a little under 2 miles long, privately bordered by 2 rivers of which Rio Dulce makes up the southern boundary. Besides Colorado we have 2 more waves to surf. Ponga Drops is a great reef break in the middle of the beach that can handle surf up to triple overhead. There is also a point break at the north end of the beach that is a bit fickle but can be really dynamite with the right swell and tide.
The house provides comfort, privacy, and a sense of living in a peaceful lush tropical forest, but still within a short walk to the beach and surf. A tasteful synthesis of modern and island inspired architecture gives a stylish twist to this property. Even though all bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, the house is designed to benefit from passive cooling techniques harnessing the natural off-shore breezes to provide air flow throughout the house. This is the ideal alternative to being right on the beach. Enjoy the view to vine-filled trees where monkey sightings are common from the large patio, 2nd floor sundeck or pool while sipping a cool drink and contemplating the river and forest that surrounds.
Flexibility is added to this rental property with the addition of the studio casita that is on-site but separate from the main house. The casita has modest living/dining area, efficiency kitchen, bathroom, lofted sleeping area (and futon sleeper for a potential 3rd person) with A/C, private parking, patio with river views and BBQ.
Everything needed to prepare your meals are in our fully appointed modern kitchen or barbecue on the gas grill on our back patio. A night out we recommend strolling down to one of the coolest local restaurants in Nicaragua called Pili Restaurant at Colorado Beach Club for a unique dining experience.
Stop for groceries on your way from the airport in our nearest town in Rivas, which has the Maxi Pali that stocks most everything you'll need. Fresh fish and lobster are available by walking or driving to nearby Playa Gigante or simply contact our property manager to have everything delivered. We also have a new breakfast place called Café Bodega 2 minutes from Casa Rio.....Café Latte and freshly made homemade pastries. To work off the deserts we have a new open air yoga hut with spectacular beach views or massage and yoga by trained/experienced professionals, can be scheduled at the house for your convenience, also regular sessions are available across the street (at Mark & Dave's Place), and also on site at The Aqua Spa which is located near the local town of Gigante, a 20 minute drive/taxi away. Aqua is tastefully built into a local hillside with incredible private/couple massages, yoga classes/sessions, beautiful views, including a quiet beach cove, and a quaint restaurant and beach-side bar. A 'must visit.'

The rental property comes with Golf membership, House keeper, use of our private pool or Beachside Club House on the oceanfront right in front of the Colorado break, which contains a beautiful swimming pool, relaxation area, kitchen, BBQ, palapas, and volleyball court. Our property manager, Heather at NSR can help with transportation, meal services, rental equipment (boogie boards, surf boards, stand up paddle boards, snorkel and fins, etc) with instructions. Our resort also has bike or motorcycle rentals as well as site seeing tours to other areas like Isla de Ometepe on Lake Nicaragua. Cliff rappelling with EKO Aventura in Gigante can also be arranged for an adrenaline rush. A private session of yoga or massage at Casa Rio after a packed day of outdoor adventures is also an option.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Marcia, myself and our teenage daughter reside in a small rural community within twenty minutes from Portland, Maine. We discovered the Tola region of Nicaragua on vacation nearly 7 years ago and immediatley fell in love with the area and it's people. We've just completed building our beautiful riverside home. A short 7 minute walk or paddle to great surfing at Colorado Beach or beach-combing down uninterrupted miles of sandy coastline!

Why Tola:
We both love the ocean, but having been a Peace Corps Forester in West Africa I fully appreciate the beauty of a tropical forest and the wildlife that inhabit this very special ecosystem. We were drawn to this property with the big trees and gentle river the first time we laid eyes on it. The natural shading keeps the house cool during the day and our backyard pool is perfectly situated to take in the melodic bird songs, river and comical antics of the tree monkeys.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy and tranquility, but just an 8 minute stroll away from the Colorado Beach or Club house. We also have a full-time housekeeper and pool guy with an optional meal plan if you want a completely laid back vacation. A family of vacationers staying with us said it best: 'There is a terrace on top of the house where we did yoga every morning. Below was the pool. We would sit out and watch the Howler Monkeys and huge Iguanas in the trees. In the morning there were so many different kinds of birds singing, it was truly amazing. This was the nicest home I have ever stayed in. Everything was first class'.
