Property description

Located in a secure, gated community, on a pristine, sandy beach is Casa Colorados. Casa Colorados is a 5000+ sq foot, beachfront 1/2 acre luxury estate, with 4 bedrooms/5 baths, a yoga/hammock palapa and a killer pool looking out at the world class surf break, Playa Colorado. The house comfortably sleeps 8+ people with 3 master suites, 1 guest room, an additional game room that can also be used as a bedroom as well as 2 additional supersized, fold out couches in the living room. The main Master Suite is on the first floor with a king bed, luxury bathroom and bathtub that overlooks the pounding surf. The other two master suites are on the second floor facing the Ocean, one contains a king bed and the other two twins (that can be converted to a king bed). Both of these master suites also contain their own end suites, one with an additional queen futon and the other with an optional inflatable mattress. The fourth guest room is on the first floor next to the master and has an additional two singles (that can be converted to a king bed). The game room also has additional sleeping quarters with a queen fold-out sofa and a single fold-out sofa. All rooms have their own bathrooms and walk in closets with mahogany closet organizers. The home can easily accommodate larger groups, an extended family or 2 families traveling together. The house is complete with a fully equipped kitchen, courtyard with fountain, separate A/C in each room, large plasma TVs, 7.1 Dolby surround sound home theater, outside music, high speed internet, BBQ grill, back-up generator, ping pong table, boogie boards, 2 soft top longboards (8ft), board games and books. There is also a brand new yoga, hammock and Ping Pong palapa on the side of the house. Custom cabinetry and granite run throughout the house. No expense has been spared. We offer you all of the comforts of home on one of the most beautiful beaches in Nicaragua. Daily housekeeping, pool cleaning and a night guard are all included in the quoted rates.

Casa Colorados is one of the country's finest surfing locations. Due to the strong winds coming from Lake Nicaragua, the winds in this area of the country are offshore 330+ days a year, ALL DAY AND NIGHT LONG!. The house literally sits directly in front of the world class Colorados. 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.

Hacienda Iguana is the ideal community for those who want to surf, golf, explore or just kick back and relax on a breathtaking beach. It is a very secure community with 2 sets of gates to enter, guards posted around the community and Casa Colorados also has it's own night guard specifically for the house. The security staff in place insures that you will feel very secure and comfortable to roam around the community and beach as you please. That being said the whole area is very safe and you will find that the local community is extremely humble, friendly and helpful.

For those that don't surf there are plenty of other great adventures, activities and day trips you can enjoy. We can arrange surf trips by boat of fishing trips leaving from Iguana if you can swim or paddle out to the boat or out of Gigante if you prefer to load the boat from shore. There are some great hikes in the area to get out and enjoy the amazing views, clean air, nature and wildlife viewing. Hacienda Iguana has it's own challenging 9 hole golf course. A round of golf (18 holes) with golf cart and clubs is only $45/person. On Wednesdays there is an organized afternoon golf scramble for guests and residents. Other available activities in the area include massage, yoga, surf trips by boat or taxi, surf lessons, fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, SUPing, hiking, bike rental, moped rentals, moto rentals, catamaran tours, transportation and/or day trips to get a taste of culture in the surrounding cities or to go visit volcanoes, crater lakes and other natural attractions throughout southern Nicaragua.

Our rental management company, Iguana Surf Rentals, is located in the Hacienda Iguana Commercial Area and we are around and we are available for anything you might need and any to help with any questions or concerns you might have. We provide an info guide in the condo, with information on activities, hikes, day trip ideas, maps, a restaurant guide, local restaurant menus etc.

Within the community of Hacienda Iguana there are currently six restaurants. The restaurant at the beach club serves healthy and delicious plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a great beach bar with happy hour specials. Don Eloy’s bar and restaurant serves sandwiches, wings, bar food and pizza, has a full bar and is open from 3-11pm. This is also a great place to watch sports games. Scoops and Spokes is an artisan ice cream, coffee and panini shop that also offers bike rentals and tours. They also have a special beer pong night on Saturday evenings and a crepe and mimosa breakfast special on Sundays 9am-12pm. Vana tacos is a taco shop right behind the Iguana Surf Rentals Office and is open for lunch and dinner with veggie, chicken and carne asada tacos and burritos. Casa Madera is a restaurant with local Nicaraguan cuisine, open for lunch and dinner, and located in the wood house just east of the golf condos. Lastly, Casa Ananas (located just east of the golf condos) is open for breakfast and lunch and has delicious plates including vegetarian and Italian options. They also offer special dinner nights with sushi, pizza, Italian or Thai cuisine. Don Eloys, Scoops and Spokes and Vana Tacos are all located in Iguana’s growing commercial center where you will also find a La Fise ATM, NSR Surf Shop, Stop and Go Surf Market (groceries), Satori Spa, Iguana Surf School, and our office, Iguana Surf Rentals and Real Estate.

Coco’s Beach Boutique is a small store inside at Casa Ananas (the small white house just east of the golf condos) that offers women’s clothing, jewelry, hats, bags and more.

Amenities Close By but Outside of Iguana:
Just outside of Iguana’s gates (3km away) there is the Rivera Market Place with an Avis Car Rental Company, BAC Bank Branch and ATM, Rivera Market/Grocery Store and Bordport Surf Shop (long term surfboard storage, surfboard sales and retail). There are many other great restaurants within a 10-20 minute drive from Hacienda Iguana.

Car Rentals: There are 3 car rental agency options that are close by or service the Hacienda Iguana community. There is a Dollar kiosk at the Costa Esmeralda Airport that upon reservation will pick guests up in Iguana and bring them to the airport to get pick up a car (free of charge). There is an Avis car rental office in Riviera Market, just outside of Iguana’s gates. They do not deliver or pick up guests but you can get a taxi out to the office to pick up a car. A reservation is suggested as their inventory is limited. Alamo will deliver and pick up vehicles to and from your rental property in Hacienda Iguana for a $40 fee. They bring their vehicles from San Juan del Sur so a reservation is required.

Yoga/Fitness Class Schedule: Drop in yoga classes are held at the small beachfront palapa at Mark and Daves and are $12/person. Mark and Dave’s is located in the middle of Iguana beach, just south of Panga Drops where there is a large palapa and small palapa right next to each other. The Yoga schedule is the following: Tuesday (Intro to Ashtanga) at 10am, Thursday (Vinyasa Flow) at 10am, Friday (Surfer Power Yoga) at 10am and Sunday (Yin) at 10am. Private yoga and fitness classes at your rental property are also available for $60 for 1-4 people and $12 for each additional person.

Golf Scramble: Every Wednesday there is a golf scramble for $25 per person, which includes 9 holes of golf, golf clubs, golf cart, dinner and 1 non alcoholic beverage. To play, please meet at the Pro Shop at 2:30pm.

Bicycle or Golf Cart Rentals: We can organize a bicycle or golf cart rental for your stay to make it easier to get around and explore the area. Guided mountain bike tours are also available and give you a chance to see howler monkeys, iguanas, a sloth and other wildlife. Please let us know and we would be happy to make a reservation for you. The golf carts must stay on the interior roads of Iguana.

Activities: We would also be happy to organize activities and transportation for you during your stay. There will be an info guide in your condo with all the activity and day trip options including; boat trips (surf, fish or site-seeing), catamaran tours, surf board rentals, surf lessons, surf photography, massage, yoga, moto rentals, bike rentals, golf cart rentals, horseback riding, atv tours, kayaking, spanish lessons and more. You can find more info on these activities on our website. Please feel free to contact us by email, call us with the phone provided in the property or set up any of these activities at your check in.

Please make sure and stock up on groceries and fill your car up with gas on your way to Iguana. Rivas is your last chance for a large grocery store and gas station and is 45 minutes from Hacienda Iguana. There are a few small markets or convenience stores in the area where you can re-stock on essentials but it is best to do the bulk of your shopping in Rivas.
