About the property

5 Br And 5 1/2 Bath Beachfront Estate Directly In Front Of Colorados Surf Break

Altos de Colorado is a brand new luxuriously appointed estate located on the sand in the guard-gated golf course community of Hacienda Iguana, just west of Tola, Nicaragua. Altos de Colorado boasts 8000 square feet of living space on over a third acre of beachfront property.

This luxury estate has 5 bedrooms (2 Master) and 5 1/2 baths and has the largest private pool on the beach in all of Hacienda Iguana. The house is directly in front of the world class surf break Playa Colorados, and a 5 minute sand walk south of Ponga Drops, another world-class surf break. The house comfortably sleeps 12 people in 5 bedrooms (one of which is a very private 'honeymoon' casita), each with their own beautiful custom cabinetry and granite counters with beautiful stone sinks. As stated before, two of the bedrooms are master suites... each with it's own full size bathtub, one of which is a jacuzzi tub! Both Master Suites have views of the surf while just lying in your king size bed! Each of the other bedrooms has Twin XL beds which may be pushed together to make one king size bed. These additional bedrooms have there own walk-in closets with built-ins for plenty of storage. All bedrooms are independently A/C cooled for maximum comfort and energy efficiency, and are conveniently located on the main floor for a quick exit to the surf and sand! On the second floor is a beautifully appointed large kitchen with oversized island food preparation area, a dining table large enough for place settings for fourteen, and a very large second floor patio with a 36 inch wide built-in gas BBQ perfect for parties overlooking the surf firing off from either Colorados or Ponga Drops!

There are upstairs and downstairs living rooms/home theater systems, each equipped with 60 inch LCD televisions and Dolby/THX 7.1 channel surround speakers/subwoofers! There are also 40-inch WiFi Smart TV's in each of the master bedrooms. Blu-Ray DVD players and Satellite TV (Sky) are available for each TV as well. The ground floor patio also has it's own six-speaker stereo system with 1800 cumulative watts of power for your listening enjoyment.

The third floor observation deck has unprecedented views over all of Hacienda Iguana from Colorados up to Ponga Drops and Los Perros/Rancho Santana...perfect for surf/landscape photography...or just hanging out to check the surf, watch beautiful sunsets, whatever!

Altos de Colorado also has high speed 4G internet throughout the house, and a whole-house back-up generator and to obviate any potential power outage.

Our property manager is a home-owner in our community as well, so he and his staff will attend to your every need 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Arrangements can be made for catering and transportation/excursions in advance or on a whim. All of the comforts of home on one of most beautiful beaches in all of Nicaragua!

Altos de Colorado also offers membership access to our private golf course. This 9 hole course is quite challenging and uncrowded, offering tee times pretty much whenever you want. There is also a brand new championship 18 hole course just 15 minutes by car south of Iguana in Isla Guacalito, which boasts beautiful ocean views.

Also included with your stay is full access to the exclusive Community Beach Club just a 3 minute sand walk south of the house. This Beach Club is a wonderful place to have lunch and relax with friends, or have a dunk in the pool and play volleyball, or just watch the surf fire off at Colorados!

Also within the community is located Don Eloys Restaurant, a great place to hang out with your friends for lunch or dinner and swap stories, or relax at the bar with beer and watch sporting events on their big screen TV. There are a handful of other great restaurants that are accessible by car, taxi, boat, or a nice hike to a small fishing village. A sunset dinner at Rancho Santana, our sister development to the south, is a must! As always you'll find beautiful sunset views from any beach on the beautiful west coast of Nicaragua!

About Jackie and Dan Bonis

Owners are surfers from the US and have traveled extensively through Central America and found this beach in Nicaragua to build a dream home.

Jackie and Dan Bonis purchased this estate in 2013

Why Jackie and Dan Bonis chose Nicaragua

House located directly in front of Playa Colorados, a world-class surfing beach which hosted the 2012 International Surfing Association Grand Masters Championship in epic barreling surf!

What makes this estate unique

For surfers this beach is unique because of the offshore winds which groom the waves into perfect barrels all day long, about 300 days out of the year...you can surf from days first light and into the evening without worry about conditions getting blown out.

NICA DREAM HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing! We booked the house for our honeymoon trip and we will for sure be back. The house was beautiful and it was right in front of the waves. The staff was amazing as well as the Owners. We exchanged several emails ahead of time and everyone was super responsive and helpful. David helped to arrange transportation from Costa Rica and back. Once at the house David and Iain made contact with us immediately and made sure everything was going well. The staff at the house really made the trip. Cecilia, Lucia, and Roberto are THE BEST! We really enjoyed our time with them. They truly made our stay special. The pictures are amazing, but it doesn't do this house justice. The layout is perfect and the sunsets from the 3rd story deck are priceless. We truly would not change a thing. Thank you for helping to make our honeymoon so extremely special and beautiful! (We will be recommending this house to as many people as possible!)

Wow. Altos De Colorado was the best! Located at the Surf Break

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. It was such an amazing experience. David and Lain organized our transfer to and from the house. They also answered all questions we had while we were in the US. Once we arrived the were awesome. They set up massages for us daily and surf board rentals and private yoga instruction. We informed them before we got there that we would like to set up a private chef for our entire stay. The chef (Marta) was awesome. She was so sweet and she was an amazing chef. Fresh fruit, Fresh Fish, fresh juice every day. She cooked three meals a day for us. Top quality food. We were so grateful. We also had housekeeping services in the morning each day included. We came down with four couples and we all had our own rooms with King beds and bathrooms. Such an awesome trip. I highly recommend staying at this house and contacting Nica 365.

Thank you Thank you,

This house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely amazing. The house is right on the beach, in front of the surf break. Great surfing and nice long walks on the beach everyday! The house itself is beautiful. There are plenty of rooms, and enough space for our party of eight. The private gated community is safe and has lots to offer. What really made the stay was the staff. We loved Martha and all of her meals. She was attentive to our dietary restrictions, and after a long morning of surfing, her breakfasts were delicious. All of the meals were some of the best we have had. The rest of the staff was just as accommodating. We definitely plan to stay in this house again!

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was 10/10 from start to finish! I had a lot of questions for David and James before our trip and they answered everything promptly via email.

It seemed to good to be true walking into the house at first. Then once I saw the amazing pool on the edge of the beautiful beach/ocean I thought... what did I do to deserve this? We all felt like royalty. The staff did an amazing job making our stay as comfortable as possible. The cleaning lady, cooks, pool guy and security were all so friendly and helpful. Our concierge, Iain was incredible. He hooked us up with anything we wanted. Surf boards, tee times at the golf course, massages on the pool deck(by a professional, not him) and a tour of the community. Such a good guy.

And of course the beach is beautiful!! With sweet surf breaks right in front of the house. I need to go back!

Beautiful house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Property is exactly as pictured. Maybe better if that's possible.

Property is very clean and well-maintained . Staff was amazing. They prepared great food and the cleaning staff was always present.

Ownership and management were very helpful. And quick with the security deposit refund.

The drive from the airport could be long if you have kids but once there it's amazing.

It is in an isolated location with limited restaurants and attractions. But excursions can be setup easily through the management group.

I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone.
