Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Tola - Colorados Surf Condo VRD9

3 bed/2 bath corner unit, mountain, river & Surf views, PRIVACY!!!

NOTE: New leather Couch and Loveseat combo Feb 2014! Sorry not in photos yet!

Villas Rio Dulce #9 has been the MOST POPULAR RENTAL with the highest occupancy rate in the Villas Rio Dulce condo building for the past 3 years. The reasons:

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit on the 3rd floor faces both the Rio Dulce river and the jungle on the opposite side. It's also right in front of the world famous Colorados surf break.

- Jungle views from the riverbed to the mountaintop! Not to mention a direct view of the Colorados surf break from your Master Bedroom window or the extremely private balcony.

- A MEASURE OF PRIVACY is afforded that is not provided by most other units. It has elevator or stairs access to it's 3rd floor location. It is an OUTSIDE, CORNER unit with only the jungle to the south and the Colorados surf break in front and to the west. There is no foot traffic that looks into or constantly walks past your unit throughout the day! Begin and end each day in complete privacy, peace and quiet, after your busy & draining surfing adventures!

- A CONSTANT off shore BREEZE from Lake Nicaragua to the east sweeps over the mountains and flows gently through the jungle facing windows that comprise the entire south length of the unit. This virtually eliminates the need for AC and allows you to enjoy a comfortable tropical fresh air feel throughout your stay! Feel free to use the AC that each room in the unit provides. However, since it is not necessary in this elevated & breezy unit, you can enjoy the tropical breezes that you came here for in the first place.....And remember the privacy!!!

- A substantially UPGRADED AND CUSTOM FURNITURE package was acquired for our home! The standard builder package purchased by most unit owners does not compare! Most important are HIGH END PLUSH MATRESSES that guarantee a super comfortable sleep and rejuvenation after a full day's pounding by the waves. This is of the highest priority for any surfer!

In addition, we have selected gallery quality driftwood pieces from the nearby beach and river bed as well as several Nicaraguan themed 'Primitivista' framed oils from Luis Alvarado. He is widely regarded as the country's top artist in that genre. All in an effort to provide our home with a decorator's touch and a 'home away from home' feel not typically associated with a vacation rental. The couch and chair cushions are brand new as of November 2012.

- With our condo's south, southeast orientation, the hot afternoon sun is not a factor with this unit. Unlike other units there is NO need to close the drapes to block out the sun, shut the windows and crank the AC during that time of day.

- Our 3 bedroom can be configured as 1 king & 4 twins, 2 kings and 2 twins, or as 6 twins.

- Our fully stocked kitchen has stainless steel refrigerator & stove. Coffee Maker, Microwave, blender, ice cube trays, and a complete array of cooking utensils, dishes and silverware, etc.

- A flat screen TV with Claro satellite, DVD, IPod dock stereo, and LIBRARY OF 1000+ MOVIES, various HBO & Showtime series, and over 3000 songs from various artists is also provided.

- An ON-SITE MANAGER In THE BUILDING to handle any type of short term needs and/or extra-curricular activities. Day trips could include: Area eco-tours, yoga, manicure, massage, Spanish language lessons, local musicians, fishing trips, mountain climbing, horseback riding, zip lines, volcano hikes, bike and motorcycle rentals, etc.

- Hacienda Iguana is one of the top surfing venues in Nicaragua. Strong winds that originate from Lake Nicaragua to the east, flow over the mountains, and head offshore 330+ days a year, 24 hours a day! Colorados is a now famous world class surf break. Panga Drops is a short 5 minute walk up the beach from there. Colorados is a fast, multi-peaked, barrelling beach break. Panga Drops is a tamer A-framing reef & rock break. There are several other quality breaks in the area that we can arrange boats to.

General amenities available include a:

- a private community beachside pool restaurant/bar/seating area for lounging, swimming and watching sunsets.

- several excellent area restaurants to visit for fabulous food and amazing vistas.

- discounted membership rates at the 10 hole, well maintained and manicured tropical jungle golf course on-site, and at reduced rates.

- Fully cooked Meal Plans available.

- Wireless internet and satellite TV.

- Transportation to and from the airport in Managua as well as around the local area.

- Fresh fish and lobster delivered to your door. Ask about meal plans!

About Todd Koppes

My wife Sandy and I have been travelling to Nicaragua since 2000. We have seen and participated in the growth in and around Hacienda Iguana and the surrounding area. We love the warm friendly people as well as the general area and everything it offers. We are happy to share our home away from home with like minded travelers who will enjoy & appreciate what we've all worked so hard to create.

Todd Koppes purchased this condo in 2009

Why Todd Koppes chose Tola

Hacienda Iguana is the most beautiful and spectacular beach in Central America. It was an easy choice. Seeing it grow from a long stretch of sand to what is today was an extremely fun and interesting adventure.

What makes this condo unique

Please review the detailed description for details on: Privacy, airflow throughout the unit, upgraded custom furniture, mountain, river and surf break views and access.

Surf trip/vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We had very relaxing and great time at Todd's condo. Very convenient to the surf and pool bar. Also got to travel to some unreal surfspots by boat and by land which was a lot of fun. Erika and Karina did a great job in cooking our meals and were very accommodating to us. Condo was very comfortable to stay at.

surf trip

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great place for those looking to surf and get away from everything. We did 8 days at Todd's condo in Iguana and it was perfect. The unit was clean and the building quiet. Todd was extremely helpful regarding the logistics of getting to his place and telling us exactly what to expect and bring. He is a highly attentive owner. I recommend this place for anyone looking to get away from it all and just surf and relax.

We stayed here for a week for a surfing vacation. Todd could not have been any easier to work with or more helpful. Beautiful condo and view. We had a fantastic time and great waves. Thanks Todd for everything!

REALLY a home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend this unit to you, family and friends. Nicaragua is an amazingly diverse and majestic country. This villa is definitely on the best beach on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. This is the place for surfers, beach lovers and outdoor enthusiasts!

The unit is spacious, thoughtfully decorated and filled with natural light. The unit includes filtered water, every appliance you would EVER need, incredibly comfortable beds and a cleaning staff who made the place spotless. Besides the full kitchen (I would recommend hitting the grocery store in Rivas before you arrive at the villa), you have the option of visiting the beach bar and restaurant that include delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktail selections.

Todd was flexible with our dates (after Christmas but before New Years). He also connected us with an onsite manager, Mark, who answered all of our questions thoroughly and timely before our arrival. The service was so incredible that I brought a group of my friends back a week later! The price is also incredibly reasonable for the location, amenities and overall service.

Todd was an excellent host, his place was impeccable. We loved being there, listening to the surf. We had everything we could need while visiting. I will go back, and i can't wait to do so.

great time in Nica

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures reflect exactly what you will find there. The decoration is really nice, the apartment is very well maintained, the view is epic! you will find 3 breaks near the condo. Colorado is straight in front of the building, Panda Drop is about 500m North and Amarillo is about 800m South.
The waves are breaking in Colorado even without swell so you are sure to find some waves there. And when there is a swell the waves are just amazing!
Internet and drinking water are free which is very nice.
you can rent bikes, surfboards and motorbikes, you can easily ask for a cab and organize a trip to the volcano or to a city. Fishing trips and boat trips to go to other surf spots are also easy to plan.
There is no supermarket around so you need to be ready and buy all you need before. There is a small bar near the pool on the beach with beers and water, you can also find a small bar - restaurant inside the golf area. The prices are nearly american prices.
A cleaning lady will help you to keep the place nice and clean. it's very comfortable to have someone who can sweep and change the sheets for you :)
The owner is very helpful and available. He will answer all your questions and make the payment easy.
100% satisfied. I am sure we will be back there! We had a great great time!
