Ocean Front Villa in Hacienda Iguana

Rock Point Surf-n-Golf Villa offers vacationers one of the best choices in Central American lodging. Nicaragua has many places for visitors to stay, but few Nicaragua vacation rentals offer the amenities and activities that guests have available to them at the Rock Point Villa.

Rock Point Surf-n-Golf Villa is a breathtaking ocean front lodge situated on Nicaragua’s pristine Pacific Coast. Rock Point Villa is located within Hacienda Iguana, a private, gated community where guests enjoy three incredible surf breaks: Playa Colorados, Panga Drops, and a right-hand break, a manicured golf-course, an on-site restaurant and bar, fishing adventures, and stunning wildlife. Stepping out onto Rock Point Villa’s private patio, you’ll be absorbed into sublime scenery overlooking two surf breaks surrounded by lush cliffs speckled with caves perfect for adventuring.

Positioned between Hacienda Iguana River and the Pacific Ocean, Rock Point Villa is located directly on the beach and comes with a picturesque landscape from all rooms. The villa has one master bedroom and bathroom combination, as well as two separate bedrooms, each with two beds and a shared bathroom. Beds are easily pushed together, so rooms are perfect for groups, couples, and individuals alike. Next to the condo, sun-bathers can relax under a bungalow and cool down in the refreshing pool.

Appealing to surfers (surfing Nicaragua waves is something that should be done by all surfing enthusiasts), fisherman, ecologists, outdoorsmen, snorkelers, sun-bathers, hikers, and the all around adventurer, Rock Point Villa provides the perfect canvas for creating a memorable experience in beautiful Nicaragua.

Just steps to Colorados, Panga Drops, and Los Perros "a private right hand Point Break"!

Mark and Miki Dowst We currently live in Ormond Beach, FL. We have two sons in college and one daughter graduating high school, whom enjoy surfing and the outdoors! Our family has traveled around the world surfing world class surf breaks and exploring tropical destinations. Nicaragua combined everything we liked from our previous vacations into one epic experience!

MATTHEW DOWST purchased this Villa in 2009

Why MATTHEW DOWST chose Rancho Santana

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Villa located directly on the beach! Plenty of room with access to 6 world class surf breaks, two private oceanfront pools, colorful sunsets, a well manicured golf course, amazing fishing, gated community with 24/7 security! Why not? Nicaragua has soo much to offer: volcanoes, surfing, hiking trails, historical cities, canopy tours, horse back riding and much more! Our family quickly fell in love with the Nicaraguan life and made it part of our own!

                                                            Right on the Ocean.

                                                            This condo is lovely, clean and spacious.The ocean is just TEN feet away, and the patio opens right onto it. The front bedroom has large windows and a slider, so at night we could hear the ocean. The bedrooms are spacious and clean, and one room even has two twin beds (perfect for our children!) It has a/c in every room, which is a huge plus. There were multiple places to grab breakfast, lunch and dinner...one of which was a short walk down the beach and situated right on the sand. (There is a lovely little spa, and on Saturdays they even can come right to your condo for a massage~which was excellent!!) And the owner, Matt, was very prompt in his responses. He was helpful and informative. We will be back, and I would highly recommend his condo for both a romantic get away AND a family vacation. (I was pleasantly surprised how kid friendly his condo was, in addition to playgrounds, toys, and pools at the restaurants!)


                                                            Brian C.-

                                                            When my kids walked through the house and glimpsed the ocean, in unison they exclaimed - "this is awesome". Seven days later we left with the same sentiment - and a collective desire to return. Roger was great, as we asked nuance questions of where we could find things which were off the beaten path, or where to get a flat tire fixed, or where we could finds locally caught fish. We all surfed, ate fresh fruit, sat in the sun and enjoyed ourselves. We will most certainly be back - and would recommend both Nicaragua and this location to anyone.

                                                            Perfect spot

                                                            iannew smyrna beach

                                                            Place was excellent. Great view, easy access to 2 great surf breaks. Great food every day.

                                                            great honeymoon

                                                            Kurt M.

                                                            My wife and I stayed for 9 days. After a LOT of research we settled on this condo. We hit jackpot. Matt was very easy to work with and gave us great information. View and location are great. We drove around and looked at the hotels we had considered and confirmed we made a good decision. Eyleen the maid cooked and cleaned. Doesn't speak english but my spanish was good enough to communicate. Surf was a little small, but water was nice.

                                                            We rented a car and were glad we did. Nice develpoment, but you will want to tour around. Magnicient rock, Rancho Santana and Ometepe Island were our favorites.

                                                            Matt's buddy Zack can help get you almost anything. He coordinated our trip to Ometepe and took us out on his boat spearfishing. He is a local but speaks good english.

                                                            Power went out a few times but they have backup car batteries to run the lights and fan. Small ant problem that went away. Matt offered to have somone come fix it ASAP but we didn't need it.

                                                            Matt will give you a list of the great resuturants around. I probably wouldn't eat at the local resturant Don Eloy's again. People are nice, but it's Kind of expensive and the food isn't great. Same with the NSR surf shop. Great selection of boards, but Mark at Nica Xtreeme adventures would have given a better deal. Motercycles to rent fo $10/hour from him too.

                                                            To sum up. Cool owner great place. Highly recommended

                                                            We enjoyed our stay very much. This is truly an amazing place. We look forward to our return. The condo owner (Matt) was very professional and helpful. Our housekeeper (Eileen) was fantastic as well.

                                                            Rock Point Villa was the bomb! the pictures do not do justice to this beautiful place. My husband Arnie and my brother Enrique were so impressed with Matt's condo. Hacienda Iguana its so pretty we did not want to leave. We travel the world for great surf and we founded there. Awesome walk to main surf breaks, if you are a surfer you are about to get a treat of a life time in Playa Colorado and if you get tubed then you are a lucky surfer. The Condo its so nice, its really your home away from home. Matt was very easy to deal with and we were very pleased with him. Eileen, the maid was an Angel. Nothing like surfing all day and coming home to Eileen's meals everyday, that was priceless. Everyone in the comunity was very nice and helful, Nica's are very warm people. We brought with us a hammock and that was a treat. For the non surfers, there's beautiful hike to the big rock, the view breathtaking, the plumerias trees (Nicargua's National Flowers) were everywhere! We are planning to go back again very soon and we'll do it all again the same way! We did not want to rent a car and we did not need it.

                                                            Thank you Matt.
