Great home and location

  • 5 of 5

Ft. Walker is the definitely a great beach front property, and the pictures do not do it justice. Last time, we stayed at another house nearby which was really good and I also recommended, but Ft. Walker is by far better. Great open floor plan, much more comfortable furniture, relaxing hammocks, and excellent pool. Plus it is situated in front of a killer a-frame surf break.

There are many things that make Ft. Walker special, but for us, the service is what sets it apart. Iain, David, Karenia (sp), and all the staff are incredible! Needing a ride to a surf break-check. Needing fresh fish and shrimp caught that day-check. Needing your clothes cleaned-check. Daily housekeeping--check. All requests at the last minute-check.

I look forward to a return visit, hopefully soon!

Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This beach front property is a sanctuary.....it boasts everything one could desire for a relaxing getaway.....open floor plan and spacious rooms made it great for our teenagers and their friends...180 degree ocean views, great staff and we were well fed by an amazing chef....the hammocks were a crowd favourite.

Iain, David and all the staff at Fort Walker were fantastic additions....each made our stay pleasurable. David was instrumental in our numerous booking requests prior to arrival while Iain went above the call of duty during our stay with his prompt responses and attention to detail....always available with our many requests. He even located lobster last minute for our final night dinner.

You will not regret booking this property and all the amenities it offers.

Incredible home in the BEST location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Fort Walker for our annual multi-family spring break trip and we were blown away. We have stayed all over Central America and we all agreed that this was one of best houses and locations (maybe the best!). David and Ian of Nicaragua356 took care of every need and last minute request (more ice, beers, a shuttle to take us to other nearby surfing beaches, etc.). All we had to do was send Ian a text and he would respond almost immediately to help with our question/request. We ordered a golf cart (a must for fun traveling around the Hacienda Iguana grounds) that was conveniently delivered to the house as requested. Same with our rental car. The chef cooked us amazing fresh authentic delicious meals each day and the housekeepers cleaned up and took care of everything, including our laundry whenever needed. Pool was cleaned every morning and fresh towels were waiting for us on the pool lounges. All we had to do was relax and enjoy the environment. The house itself is gorgeous and so comfortable - the pictures do not do it justice. We were a group of 11 people and not once did we feel crowded. We felt like we were in our own private paradise. The pool was just amazing and the view is unbeatable. We could be in the pool watching the guys surf then run out for a swim in the ocean just steps away. We spent many days at the house and little spots around Hacienda Iguana, but also ventured out to Magnific Rock Popoyo beach (amazing must see rock formation on the beach and great surfing), Rancho Santana beach club/restaurant for some outside meals (fish tacos yum!!), Guacalito de la Isla (awesome beach club and gorgeous beach), Mukul Resort is stunning luxury if you are into that and we also visited the incredible city of Granada and the Isletas, which I highly recommend if you have time. We strongly recommend this house. We had a group including a 5 year old, teen/young adults and adult couples. Half of the group were surfers and they loved it. We can't wait to return!

Awesome house.

  • 5 of 5

" I strongly recommend Nicaragua365 for house rentals at Playa Colorado. David and James ensured our trip was a great success. The service they provide is the best we have encountered in all our travels. Part of our package was a concierge, Ian. Ian was one quick text away from looking after all our requests from fresh snapper for dinner, excursions to other sites, surfing lessons, or more wine. We opted for the meal plan and had a fantastic cook who started our day with a fresh fruit/vegetable drink that was fantastic. We requested healthy and she delivered. We look forward to our return next year."

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent another fabulous Christmas at Fort Walker. We love the house and the layout which fit our two families, consisting of 10, more than comfortably. The porch and the living room are a great indoor/outdoor space. We surfed every day and took long walks on the beautiful beach. We were also perfectly content sitting on the porch overlooking the infinity pool and watching the surfers surf Panga drops. Many afternoons one of us could be found on the upstairs porch in one of the hammocks reading or napping. We were treated to wonderful meals always accompanied by fresh fruit juices. Ian checked in on us every day and helped us plan our daily activities. We enjoyed massages at the house and a trip to a local school where we handed out school supplies. He also arranged a surfing trip to Popoyo. The team at Nicaragua 365 made sure we had another fantastic vacation at Fort Walker!

Epic Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property for 10 days and had an amazing experience! The property is spacious with incredible air flow due to the design. Absolutely love the open plan with big comfy furniture for dining and movie nights. The pool is heavenly right on the beach!

The property management provided outstanding service! They responded to all of our requests in a timely manner and everything was organized professionally. We LOVE Chef Cecilia's food which apart from the epic waves at our door step was one of the highlights of our trip.

You can't go wrong with this property! We are very grateful for the wonderful service and can't wait to come back!
