About the property

6 Bedroom, 7 bathroom with 2 pools, privacy and on Colorados surf break

Located in the secure, gated community of Hacienda Iguana, on the pristine, sandy beach of Playa Colorados you will find the Wave Garden. The Wave Garden is a gorgeous, beachfront house located right on Colorados surf break. The house is the largest in Hacienda Iguana with 6 bedrooms, each with it's own ensuite bathroom and it is the only house in Hacienda Iguana with 2 pools. The 2 large upstairs master bedrooms share a 2nd floor balcony with a seating area and hammocks that overlook the beach front pool, ocean and surf. The house is tastefully decorated with custom made hardwood furniture, beautiful tiles and local art. The house is set back just a bit from the other houses offering much more privacy than the other beachfront houses. There is a killer beachfront pool right on the edge of the property that has unobstructed views to the north and south ends of Iguana beach and the perfect viewing spot to watch your friends surf or just relax and enjoy the view. There is also a private dipping pool in the courtyard for those that want to get away from the group. There are a/c units in each bedroom, an open air floor plan for the kitchen and living area (no a/c), plenty of patio area to sit, relax and watch the surf, Claro TV, wifi internet through out the house and a generator for back up energy. The house can comfortably sleeps 12 people. The 2 upstairs master bedrooms each have a king bed, ocean views and have access to the upstairs patio. There are 4 bedrooms downstairs surrounding the courtyard and dipping pool. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the other 2 bedrooms each have 2 twin beds. Daily housekeeping, a pool cleaner and night guard are all included with the house.

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 as well as full time guards at the beach club nearby. The Wave Garden 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.

The Wave Garden is located directly on the world class wave, 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 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.

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 Hacienda Iguana and we are around and 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.

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 cars 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. Lastly, Alamo will deliver and pick up vehicles to and from your rental property in Hacienda Iguana for a $40 fee. They bring their vehicles up 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.

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.

Important Info: Please make sure and stock up on groceries and fill your car up with gas on your way to 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.

Excellent stay, beautiful views and great staff!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough about this beautiful home. Superb location, stunning views and beautiful home. The staff was excellent and the whole stay was seamless. We hosted a yoga retreat at this home and found the kitchen spacious and beautiful for prepping and serving large groups of people and found ample quiet space to practice yoga with the group. We will definitely be back!!!

Tube Time

  • 5 of 5

Uliana was amazing organizing the details prior to the trip. She organized our ride from the airport with beers, water, and soda in the 10 person passenger van with AC. Lunch was served right when we got the house. The chefs were a must for our group of 5 couples. All we had to do was wake up, surf, sit in the infinity pool, and eat delicious food. We didn't have to do any dishes or spend time cooking. Seth organized golf for our group which was really fun when the surf was small. The housekeeping staff and pool cleaners made sure the house was immaculate every day. 6 days, and 5 nights of paradise living. Very affordable. We will be back!

Great house, location, food and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with two great master bedrooms. The pool, balcony and patio below are all perfect for watching the surf at Colorados. The food was great and housekeeping kept the place really clean. There was a huge supply of filtered drinking water. Seth hooked us up with a few boat trips to some great reef breaks.

We will definitely be back to stay at the Wave Garden house.

Best house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem. With the added beachfront pool this place is awesome. The pool has these ledges on the sides that are about 4 feet wide and are shallow enough for my 3 year old (who, in the past has been terrified of pools) to have a blast. He also had fun playing with the other kids at the beach club about 100 feet away. We also went for the meal program. I highly recommend it because there isn't really a grocery store nearby. And, it's a great deal. The food was delicious and we had leftovers- add eggs and you've got breakfast. But, let's not forget the surf break literally right in front of the pool. My only con is that there were only 6 bar stools for the outdoor bar (one for every bedroom). Not enough, as we spent most of our time there. I really had to dig deep to find that single shortcoming. WE WILL BE BACK. Oh, and by the way Seth and Lindsey are incredible hosts. The house staff is great as well. They were there to clean and such but not intrusive. Best place on this beach. Tip generously, they rock.

Wave Garden

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults stayed at the Wave Garden for 9 days in July 2014 and had an amazing time. The house was located directly in front of the Colorados surf break and offered all day viewing entertainment of the surfing. The house was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Favorite parts of the house were the indoor and outdoor pools, lush tropical gardens, art, outdoor bar, and upstairs balcony with crochet hammocks. We kept the glass accordion doors open all day to enjoy the sea breeze. Bedrooms were icy cold at night with the ACs.

We got the meal plan and enjoyed every one of Roger and Amilkar's meals! The banana pancakes, dragonfruit juice, cantaloupe smoothies, lobster tails, red snapper, fish tacos, salads and refried beans were our favorites. We were never hungry and were hesitant to try any meals outside of the house because ours were so amazing. We did venture to Magnific Rock one night for a sunset dinner and highly recommend that for both the food and amazing panoramic views.

We spent our days surfing at Colorados and Panga Drops, hiking, biking, strolling the beaches for shells, and relaxing in the pools and the hammocks. We rented bikes and explored Hacienda Iguana, the eco reserve, and parts of nearby Rancho Santana. We saw monkeys, exotic birds, iguanas, and lots of crabs! Check the pool for crabs before you get in! They were harmless but loved to take a dip in the pool! We hiked to Gigante and enjoyed Tonas at Buena Vista. We also hiked to Los Perros (both the short way and long way) and made it over to the stairs and explored Playa Duna. Some in the group also rented moto bikes and explored that way. We enjoyed happy hour at the Iguana Beach Club -- $1 Tonas and must-try Passionfruit Margaritas and Banana Daikiris.

Seth and Lindsey were so attentive and helpful with all the coordination. I coordinated the trip, transportation from the airport, and meal plan with Lindsey ahead of time and Seth was very attentive to our needs while in the house. I really appreciated the cell phone provided in the house to contact them at a moment's notice.

Nicaragua is a beautiful country and the people are so friendly. We were worried about safety prior to travelling but never felt unsafe while there.

We can't wait to go back!!!
