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.

Wonderful experience at Hacienda Iguana Beach Villas #9 in Nicaragua

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time traveling to Nicaragua. Todd was so helpful setting up taxi pickup from the airport in Managua to Granada then to the condo in Iguana Beach. He recommended a nice restaurant in Granada called El Zaguan, which did not disappoint! Easy to find and the steaks were cooked to perfection.

Once we arrived to the condo we were so impressed. It was so clean with comfortable furniture, far nicer than the other condos in the complex we looked at, and friendly maid service with delicious meal options every day. Todd had great recommendations to local restaurants within a few miles including Magnifico Rock (amazing look out point for sunset) and Yolanda’s, which had incredible lobster and home feel service and even monkeys to play with! Todd recommended surfing the world class Colorado break, just a short walk from the condo, and hiking the north side of Iguana Beach with leads to a beautiful private beach. There is a quite river with families of monkeys to view in the condos backyard! Todd also set up a horseback ride for us through beautiful jungle trails and along the beach, which was one of the highlights of the trip. We spent the last day in San Juan Del Sur, about an hour drive south and visited a few places Todd recommended including the Cristo de la Misericodia statue and Pelican Eyes Resort. I would highly recommend anyone to visit Nicaragua and stay at this condo. We had a flawless experience. Thanks again!

Surf Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fantastic trip at the Condo. The amenities were great; comfortable beds, nice deck area, large kitchen, a shuttle service, and Erika did a great job in keeping the place spotless. Besides the condo the resort area was amazing. There was a golf course nearby, the bar at the beach had smoothies, the restaurant on location served good food when we didn't feel like cooking. If you rent motorbikes be careful as the gravel roads aren't that friendly as our friend found out. Overall, an excellent holiday for surfers and non-surfers, you won't regret it!

Surf Trip/Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here! Todd was super, super helpful leading up to the trip and answered all of my questions as well as helped to organize transport for us. The condo is great - very quiet and relaxing. There is a bar and restaurant just steps away right on the beach that serve some amazing smoothies, tacos, salads, etc. I highly recommend this place and can't wait until we can get back!

Surf trip/vacation

  • 5 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

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.
