About the Property
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with river and jungle views...did I mention wildlife!
This property can be rented in its entirety (house plus guest cottage, which in total can sleep 9 people). The rental rate for this offering of house plus guest cottage is $230/night during the months of October-February and $250/night March-September. If you prefer to rent only the house (which can sleep 6 people), the rate is $190/night October-February and $210/night March-September. The property is only available in its entirety Easter week and December 24 thru January 1st at the rate of $360/night. We also offer the option of renting the guest cottage (which can sleep 3 people) for only $75/night. Please note the house and studio share a common pool, but not their entrance, driveway or patio. If you require complete privacy we recommend booking the house and guest cottage combo.
Casa Rio provides comfort, privacy and a sense of living in a peaceful lush tropical forest, but still within a short walk to the beach and surf. A tasteful synthesis of modern and island inspired architecture gives a stylish twist to this property. Even though all bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning units, the house is designed to benefit from passive cooling techniques harnessing the wind to provide air flow throughout the house. This is the ideal alternative to being right on the beach. Enjoy the view to vine-filled trees where monkey sightings are common from the large patio and pool while sipping a drink and contemplating the river and forest that surrounds.
The main house has a master bedroom equipped with a queen bed. Each of the 2 guest rooms have 2 single beds. The guest cottage/studio is equipped with a queen bed and a queen futon. Each property comes with a safe for your valuables and the house has a state of the art bluetooth stereo system that can wirelessly stream from your phone, ipad, etc. The house and studio are equipped with AC in all bedrooms, BBQ grills (one for each property), cable TV in the main house, wifi, cleaning service and an optional meal plan for your convenience.
Our pristine beach is a little under 2 miles long, privately bordered by 2 rivers of which our Rio Dulce makes up the southern boundary. Besides Colorado we have 2 more waves to surf. Panga Drops is a great reef break in the middle of the beach that can handle surf up to triple overhead. There is also a right point break at the north end of the beach that is a bit fickle but can be really dynamite with the right swell and tide.
Everything needed to prepare your meals are in our fully appointed modern kitchen or barbecue on the gas grill on our back patio. A night out we recommend strolling down to one of the coolest local restaurants in Nicaragua called Pili Restaurant at Colorado Beach Club for a unique dining experience. Stop for groceries on your way from the airport in our nearest town in Rivas, which has the Maxi Pali that stocks most everything you'll need. Fresh fish and lobster are available by walking or driving to nearby Playa Gigante or simply contact our property manager to have everything delivered. To work off deserts from our new ice cream parlor, near by, we recommend Mark & Dave's open air yoga hut with spectacular beach views. A massage by trained/experienced professionals, can be scheduled at the house for your convenience. The Aqua Wellness Center tastefully built into a local hillside with incredibly beautiful views, including a quiet beach cove for snorkeling and a quaint restaurant and beach-side bar- a must visit.

Year Purchased: 2012
About: Marcia, myself and our teenage daughter reside in a small rural community within twenty minutes from Portland, Maine. We discovered the Tola region of Nicaragua on vacation nearly 7 years ago and immediatley fell in love with the area and it's people. We've just completed building our beautiful riverside home. A short 7 minute walk or paddle to great surfing at Colorado Beach or beach-combing down uninterrupted miles of sandy coastline!
Why Rivas Department, Nicaragua:
We both love the ocean, but having been a Peace Corps Forester in West Africa I fully appreciate the beauty of a tropical forest and the wildlife that inhabit this very special ecosystem. We were drawn to this property with the big trees and gentle river the first time we laid eyes on it. The natural shading keeps the house cool during the day and our backyard pool is perfectly situated to take in the melodic bird songs, river and comical antics of the tree monkeys.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy and tranquility, but just a 7 minute stroll away from the Colorado Beach or Club house. We also have a full-time housekeeper and pool guy with an optional meal plan if you want a completely laid back vacation. A family of vacationers staying with us said it best: 'There is a terrace on top of the house where we did yoga every morning. Below was the pool. We would sit out and watch the Howler Monkeys and huge Iguanas in the trees. In the morning there were so many different kinds of birds singing, it was truly amazing. This was the nicest home I have ever stayed in. Everything was first class'.
