About the Property

Beautiful Home With Private Court Yard & Pool, 4 Bedrooms/4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

THE PERFECT SURF GETAWAY. Nicaragua's Emerald Coast is a top surf destination because of the general consistency of the waves and weather conditions. The gentle offshore winds that blow all day long for an average of 300+ days per year create perfect surfing conditions. Nicaragua is also one of Central America's most beautiful wildlife corridors with captivating oceans and lush rain forests. You can expect visits from the delightful local monkey troop along with exquisite exotic birds, nesting sea turtles and other wildlife.

THE COMMUNITY: Casabella is located in the gated community of Hacienda Iguana just across the street from the beach under a beautiful canopy of trees. Perfectly nestled in between two world class surf breaks: Panga Drops (200 yards North) and Colorado (200 yards South). Hacienda Iguana is one of Nicaragua's most luxurious communities. It contains an impeccable world class golf course and a fun community restaurant and bar overlooking Playa Colorado's Break.

THE SPACE: Casabella is a beautiful, 6500 sq. ft., private villa. Designed and built in an authentic colonial Nicaraguan style with a beautiful courtyard garden and lagoon style pool, Casabella is a stunning mix of modern luxuries and natural elements. Each of the four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and private entrance from the courtyard. All indoor living spaces are air conditioned and are equipped with screened windows and doors if you want to enjoy the breeze. The two upstairs bedrooms overlook the courtyard and are adjoined by a covered outdoor living space where guests can gather and relax. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all the modern conveniences of home. All linens and towels (beach and bath) are provided along with wifi, cable tv, onsite laundry and cleaning services.

CATERING AND TRANSPORTATION: Catering is available for a fee. We offer three meals a day for $35 per person. Or two meals a day (one must be breakfast) for $25 per person. The menu includes a mix of traditional Nicaraguan and American foods. Transportation can be arranged from the airport to the house for a small fee.

ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE IN THE AREA INCLUDE: surfing, golfing, boating, deep see fishing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, kayaking, zip lines, massage, yoga, manicures and pedicures, biking, hiking and sightseeing tours.

We hope you will enjoy spending time with your family and friends in our beautiful home, whether it's sunbathing by our private pool, relaxing on the patio or sharing a meal. We love our Nicaraguan Dream Home and we think you will too. So come and enjoy La Pura Vida with us.
