CURRENTLY UNDER THE FINAL STAGES OF RENOVATION AND SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY MID TO LATE APRIL AND THE PHOTOS WILL BE UPDATED WEEKLY.
Gorgeous, newly renovated, luxury 4 bedroom beachfront house with large pool and arguably the best views of Colorados beach break. The house is located on the beach directly in front of the main peak of the world class beach break Colorados, just a 15 minute walk from Panga Drops surf break and is just 50 yards (1 minute walk) from the community beach club, pool, restaurant and bar. No expense has been spared in the renovation.
Upon completion Casa Alemendra will boast luxury finishings throughout the house, high end custom furniture, a new huge pool with shallow area for kids or lounging, outdoor grilling area by the pool, large 2nd floor balcony and new 3rd story star gazing deck. The house has a master bedroom upstairs with 2 twin beds (that can be united to make a comfy king bed), private bathroom with bath tub and shower, walk in closet, direct access to a large balcony and unobstructed ocean views. The downstairs master also has 2 twin beds (that can be united to make a comfy king bed), private luxury bathroom and large closet. There are 2 more bedrooms downstairs each with 2 twin beds (that can be united to make a comfy king bed). These 2 bedrooms are smaller and share the downstairs guest bathroom. All rooms have a/c including the living area and there is premium wireless internet, the full Dish Network package, 58" Smart TV and a back up generator for the house that runs everything including a/c units in the case of a power outage.
SURF BREAKS: Colorados is a fast, barreling beach break with many peaks and A frames. It is a challenging break and best for intermediate to expert surfers. Panga Drops is just a 10-15 minute walk up the beach and breaks on a horse-shoe shaped rock reef. This wave generally has a mellow take off and a more vertical and playful inside section. This break can be good for long boarders or short boarders. Panga Drops amplifies swells and is usually bigger but more forgiving than Colorados. At the very north end of the beach there is a point break, Los Perros Point, that needs a good swell with the right direction to break, but with the perfect combination it can provide very fun rights. We can also arrange boats to any of the 10+ surrounding breaks.
SAFETY: Hacienda Iguana is a very secure community with 2 sets of gates to enter, guards posted around the community, The security staff in place insures that you will feel very secure and comfortable to roam around the community and beach as you please. The security is just for piece of mind as the whole Tola region is very safe and you will find that the local Nicaraguan community is extremely humble, friendly and helpful.
