****HUGE DISCOUNTS IN MAY AND OCTOBER!!****

Southern Dream is a landmark beachfront villa located right at the Panga Drops surf break in the Hacienda Iguana resort. The home has 4 spacious bedrooms; two ensuite masters upstairs and two additional bedrooms downstairs with a shared bathroom. You'll be amazed by the glass fronted atrium style living room with soaring ceilings and picture perfect panoramas. The vistas don't stop there - wherever you are in the house sunsets, sunrises, crashing waves and mountain views follow!

****Other Features & Benefits of Southern Dream****

This home was designed to be flexible and each of the four bedrooms includes a converting King/twin bed. Each bedroom has either a pair of twin beds or a king bed, making this property ideal for 8 single travellers, or 4 couples. The beds have specially imported twin XL mattresses (same as those used in college dorms), meaning they are comfortable for adults to sleep in.

Southern Dream has an enviable location on the surf break; staying here, you'll be first out to the line-up and catching waves long before anyone else arrives. Colorados beach break is five minutes walk along the beach. The beachfront pool makes for the ideal spectator spot to watch your loved ones surf, let the kids play or take a dip and wash away the wipeouts after a long surf session. You're sure to enjoy the tropical gardens which are a magnet for butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife.

Juanita, the housekeeper, is a friendly yet discreet presence working hard in the background to keep the house spotless. There's also a gardener who drops by daily to keep the pool sparkling and the outdoor areas tidy. Although a safe place, to keep it that way and for your complete peace of mind there's also a night watchman - this is a big convenience allowing guests to come and go as they please without the need for tedious locking up each time you go out. As well as world class, year round surfing the area is great for nature lovers and the adventurous at heart.

Activities in the local area include ATV tours, rappelling, hiking, fishing / spear fishing, horseback riding and much more. Hacienda Iguana in which the house is located benefits from a challenging 9-hole golf course where you are likely to see multiple species of monkeys, all sorts of birds & brightly colored butterflies and occasionally tree sloths.

There are two restaurants in the resort and several good eateries within 20 minutes drive. For groups of four or more we can organize in house catering. Southern Dream is well located for day trips to nearby Granada & Ometepe. Our house manager and concierge are on hand 24/7 to help guests line up airport shuttles, activities & excursions. Get in touch now and let us help you plan the ultimate Nicaraguan getaway!

Southern Dream is the Perfect home for a luxury surfing vacation or an off the beaten path family beach adventure. The front path stops at the paddle out point for Panga Drops, and is a short walk away from Colorados, two of Nicaragua's best breaks. Combine that with The outstanding cook and the housekeeper, and it's a Dream week!

From the start to the finish, Nicaragua 365 glides you through the rental process and is extremely attentive to all the details. The house is gorgeous!

Summer Dream by Jake

  • 5 of 5

My experience was ideal from the very start. David and James were incredibly accommodating, timely, and helpful. Ian, who tends to day to day needs, was always in touch with us, helping and getting anything we wanted. Juanita kept the home clean, every day, and was a joy to be around. The home itself is located in an exceptional area. The surf was great, local food delicious, and amenities all enjoyable. The home is fully equipped with anything you might need, and if something is missing, the whole staff moves quickly to satisfy. We learned that in Nicaragua power is a major expense. So, while the AC in the sleeping quarters works perfectly, it does take a few days to get used to the temp elsewhere in the home as it is very hot. Literally, the only suggestion I would make for this home would be to install 1-2 more AC units in the main living area, then charge the guests extra, should they elect to use it. I would have definitely paid a premium. For those reading, please note, I am nitpicking here as this place, and the entire team, were all wonderful. I would definitely recommend this home and using Nicaragua365 for your planning. We'll be back. Jake

One of the best vacation homes ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacation homes I have ever stayed in. The service was amazing and we felt totally secure on the grounds. The waves were continuous and the wind was offshore 99% of the time. Ian was an amazing concierge and the home was impeccable! Fresh seafood was plentiful. The only convenience missing was air condition for the main space of the home. However, the bedrooms do have great ac and did provide solace at night from the heat. 2 thumbs up!!

One of our Favorite Vacations!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time visiting Nicaragua. Our family of 5 shared Southern Dream with another family of 5 during Spring Break. It was perfect! The house was a great set up for two couples upstairs and the kids sharing the rooms and bathroom on the main level. The house was just as beautiful as it looks online. We traveled with 2 other families that shared the house next door. Our cook was awesome! All four families gathered at Southern Dream for dinner each night. It was such a great set up for our large group. We would highly recommend Staying at Southern Dream, hiring the chef and working with Nicaragua 365. David, Ian and James were very accommodating throughout the entire planning process and all the way through the vacation.Truly one of our favorite vacations! We were all so sad to leave. We look forward to returning again !

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL time at the Southern Dreams house in Iguana at the end of March.

Everything was spectatular. The house is modern, clean, beautiful and immediately on the beach. We have never seen more beautiful sunsets.

The staff was also terrific. Yaneth cooked excellent food (we especially loved her breakfast burritos!). We were able to arrange massages, surf lessons and a fishing trip. They also helped us rent a car to explore on our own and when our 6 year old injured his foot on the beach, they drove us to the emergency clinic immediately. Above and beyond!

This location remains somewhat remote. It is a minimum 2.5 hour drive from the Managua airport. But it is well worth it! And while we did take a day to drive around and explore, you would really never need to leave this amazing house.

We can't wait to come back!
