Bahia Gigante estate description

Altos de Colorado is a brand new luxuriously appointed estate located on the sand in the guard-gated golf course community of Hacienda Iguana, just west of Tola, Nicaragua. Altos de Colorado boasts 8000 square feet of living space on over a quarter acre of beachfront property with adjacent properties completely vacant with natural foliage for the ultimate in privacy.

This luxury estate has 5 bedrooms (2 Master) and 5 1/2 baths and has the largest private pool on the beach in all of Hacienda Iguana. The house is directly in front of the world class surf break Playa Colorados, and a 5 minute sand walk south of Ponga Drops, another world-class surf break. The house comfortably sleeps 10 people in 5 bedrooms (one of which is a very private 'honeymoon' casita), each with their own beautiful custom cabinetry and granite counters with beautiful stone sinks. As stated before, two of the bedrooms are master suites... each with it's own full size bathtub, one of which is a jacuzzi tub! Both Master Suites have views of the surf while just lying in your king size bed! Each of the other bedrooms has Twin XL beds which may be pushed together to make one king size bed. These additional bedrooms have there own walk-in closets with built-ins for plenty of storage. Mattresses may be added to the oversized bedrooms for additional sleeping if needed for larger groups. All bedrooms are independently A/C cooled for maximum comfort and energy efficiency, and are conveniently located on the main floor for a quick exit to the surf and sand! On the second floor is a beautifully appointed large kitchen with oversized island food preparation area, a dining table large enough for place settings for twelve, and a very large second floor patio with a 36 inch wide built-in gas BBQ perfect for parties overlooking the surf firing off from either Colorados or Ponga Drops!

There are upstairs and downstairs living rooms/home theater systems, each equipped with 60 inch LCD televisions and Dolby/THX 7.1 channel surround speakers/subwoofers! There are also 40-inch WiFi TV's in each of the master bedrooms. Blu-Ray DVD players and Satellite TV (Sky) are available for each TV as well. The ground floor patio also has it's own six-speaker stereo system with 1800 cumulative watts of power for your listening enjoyment.

The third floor observation deck has unprecedented views over all of Hacienda Iguana from Colorados up to Ponga Drops and Los Perros/Rancho Santana...perfect for surf/landscape photography...or just hanging out to check the surf, watch beautiful sunsets, whatever!

Altos de Colorado also has high speed 4G internet throughout the house, and a whole-house back-up generator and surge suppressor to obviate any potential power outage.

Our property manager is a home-owner in our community as well, so he and his staff will attend to your every need 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Arrangements can be made for catering and transportation/excursions in advance or on a whim. All of the comforts of home on one of most beautiful beaches in all of Nicaragua!

Altos de Colorado also offers membership access to our private golf course. This 9 hole course is quite challenging and uncrowded, offering tee times pretty much whenever you want. There is also a brand new championship 18 hole course just 15 minutes by car south of Iguana in Isla Guacalito, which boasts beautiful ocean views.
Also included with your stay is full access to the exclusive Community Beach Club just a 3 minute sand walk south of the house. This Beach Club is a wonderful place to have lunch and relax with friends, or have a dunk in the pool and play volleyball, or just watch the surf fire off at Colorados!

Also within the community is located Don Eloys Restaurant, a great place to hang out with your friends for lunch or dinner and swap stories, or relax at the bar with beer and watch sporting events on their big screen TV. There are a handful of other great restaurants that are accessible by car, taxi, boat, or a nice hike to a small fishing village.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Owners are surfers from the US and have traveled extensively through Central America and found this beach in Nicaragua to build a dream home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bahia Gigante:
                  House located directly in front of Playa Colorados, a world-class surfing beach which hosted the 2012 International Surfing Association Grand Masters Championship in epic barreling surf!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  For surfers this beach is unique because of the offshore winds which groom the waves into perfect barrels all day long, about 300 days out of the year...you can surf from days first light and into the evening without worry about conditions getting blown out.
