Property description

We are located in hacienda iguana, one of Nicaragua premier gated golf resort developments. Our apartment is attached to the garage of our house. It is one of only a few houses actually on the beach. You can wake up, check the surf and then go get tubed.

Unlike Costa Rica or El Salvador, this small area of Nicaragua has year round deep water swell and 300+ days a year of all 24 hour offshore winds blowing in from lake Nicaragua. No matter what kind of board you ride, there are lefts, rights, and at least 8-10 breaks in the area just for you. Two of the best, Colorado and Panga drops are on the beach just outside your front door.

We know your vacation time is precious, patty and i live in the principal house on this beautiful white sand beach to help ensure that your stay with us is perfect. You can rent your own car or if you like, we can arrange for our trusted bilingual driver to pick you up at the airport, take you grocery shopping, sightseeing and deliver you to your home away from home.

Plus there is more than just great surf available. In addition to sunset beach walks and drinks, we can show you birds, monkeys and wildlife on jungle and river walks. An hour’s walk down the beach through Playa Amarilla and you’ll find yourself in the little fishing village of gigante enjoying fresh lobster and an ice cold beer. Full or half-day tours, horseback rides or boat trips to fish or explore more remote surf breaks are a bargain and easily arranged. The see shack cabana even has its own golf club membership, allowing you to play on our 10-hole course at reduced rates. Whatever you need, we will do our best to make it happen.

Or you can relax with a good book on your private patio or just fall asleep listening to the waves. The apartment has a/c, wireless internet, satellite TV and drinking water. The kitchen is modern and includes everything you need for meal preparation and all the amenities. If you do not feel like cooking, don elroy’s restaurant and bar is onsite.

Great surf, beach front accommodations, loads of activities in one of the most beautiful spots in the world -- all at a great price. Please contact us if we can answer any questions or help in any way.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: After a long search, Patty and I first came to Nicaragua in 2004, bought a condominium and watched as they built our new home. Our first night and nearly every night since has been a great adventure. We are San Diego raised, lived, and worked in Idaho from 1972-2000 and we are now proud to call Nicaragua home.

Why the Owner Chose Rivas, Nicaragua:
After 35 years in the hospitality business in the US, we searched for a beautiful, safe secure place to retire with lots of activities, friendly people, offshore winds and world-class surf. We found it in Nicaragua.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The Cabana is unique because it is the only small, low price, rental of it's kind on the beach at Iguana. You have your own patio and can share the owners pool. Plus, you get access to the beach!
