Overview

About the property

4 bedroom + loft + den - Beachfront - On the break

Located in a secure, gated community, on a pristine, sandy beach is Casa Colorados. Casa Colorados is a 5000+ sq foot, beachfront 1/2 acre luxury estate, with 4 bedrooms/5 baths, a yoga/hammock palapa and a killer pool looking out at the world class surf break, Playa Colorado. The house comfortably sleeps 8+ people with 3 master suites, 1 guest room, an additional game room that can also be used as a bedroom as well as 2 additional supersized, fold out couches in the living room. The main Master Suite is on the first floor with a king bed, luxury bathroom and bathtub that overlooks the pounding surf. The other two master suites are on the second floor facing the Ocean, one contains a king bed and the other two twins (that can be converted to a king bed). Both of these master suites also contain their own end suites, one with an additional queen futon and the other with an optional inflatable mattress. The fourth guest room is on the first floor next to the master and has an additional two singles (that can be converted to a king bed). The game room also has additional sleeping quarters with a queen fold-out sofa and a single fold-out sofa. All rooms have their own bathrooms and walk in closets with mahogany closet organizers. The home can easily accommodate larger groups, an extended family or 2 families traveling together. The house is complete with a fully equipped kitchen, courtyard with fountain, separate A/C in each room, large plasma TVs, 7.1 Dolby surround sound home theater, outside music, high speed internet, BBQ grill, back-up generator, ping pong table, boogie boards, 2 soft top longboards (8ft), board games and books. There is also a brand new yoga, hammock and Ping Pong palapa on the side of the house. Custom cabinetry and granite run throughout the house. No expense has been spared. We offer you all of the comforts of home on one of the most beautiful beaches in Nicaragua. Daily housekeeping, pool cleaning and a night guard are all included in the quoted rates.

Casa Colorados is one of the country's finest surfing locations. Due to the strong winds coming from Lake Nicaragua, the winds in this area of the country are offshore 330+ days a year, ALL DAY AND NIGHT LONG!. The house literally sits directly in front of the world class Colorados. Colorados is a fast, barreling beach break with many peaks and A frames. It is a challenging break and best for intermediate to expert surfers. Panga Drops is just a 10-15 minute walk up the beach and breaks on a horse-shoe shaped rock reef. This wave generally has a mellow take off and a more vertical and playful inside section. This break can be good for long boarders or short boarders. Panga Drops amplifies swells and is usually bigger but more forgiving than Colorados. At the very north end of the beach there is a point break, Los Perros Point, that needs a good swell with the right direction to break, but with the perfect combination it can provide very fun rights. We can also arrange boats to any of the 10+ surrounding breaks.

Hacienda Iguana is the ideal community for those who want to surf, golf, explore or just kick back and relax on a breathtaking beach. It is a very secure community with 2 sets of gates to enter, guards posted around the community and Casa Colorados also has it's own night guard specifically for the house. The security staff in place insures that you will feel very secure and comfortable to roam around the community and beach as you please. That being said the whole area is very safe and you will find that the local community is extremely humble, friendly and helpful.

For those that don't surf there are plenty of other great adventures, activities and day trips you can enjoy. We can arrange surf trips by boat of fishing trips leaving from Iguana if you can swim or paddle out to the boat or out of Gigante if you prefer to load the boat from shore. Hacienda Iguana has it's own challenging 9 hole golf course. A round of golf (18 holes) with golf cart and clubs is only $45/person. On Wednesdays there is an organized afternoon golf scramble for guests and residents. There are some great hikes and beach walks in the area to get out and enjoy the amazing views, clean air, nature and wildlife viewing. Other available activities in the area include massage, yoga, fitness classes, surf trips by boat or taxi, surf lessons, fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, SUPing, hiking, golf cart rentals, bike rentals, moped rentals, moto rentals, transportation and/or day trips to get a taste of culture in the surrounding cities or to go visit volcanoes, crater lakes and other natural attractions throughout southern Nicaragua.

Our rental management company, Iguana Surf Rentals, is located in Hacienda Iguana and we are around and available for anything you might need and any to help with any questions or concerns you might have. We provide an info guide in the condo, with information on activities, hikes, day trip ideas, maps, a restaurant guide, local restaurant menus etc.

Within the community of Hacienda Iguana there are currently six restaurants. The restaurant at the beach club serves healthy and delicious plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a great beach bar with happy hour specials. Don Eloy’s bar and restaurant serves sandwiches, wings, bar food and pizza, has a full bar and is open from 3-11pm. This is also a great place to watch sports games. Scoops and Spokes is an artisan ice cream, coffee, smoothies and panini shop that also offers bike rentals and tours. They also do noodle and rice bowls from 12pm-8pm Wednesday through Sundays and a crepe and mimosa breakfast special on Sundays 9am-12pm.

Lastly, Casa Ananas (located just east of the golf condos) offers special dinner nights with sushi, pizza, Italian, Burgers, Thai cuisine and more.

The golf is one of the few golf courses in the entire country of Nicaragua.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What an amazing way to end 2009! Thank you for a wonderful vacation. The experience wouldn't have been half as much fun without Seth, Lindsey and the team. You all made Nicaragua proud... Frank, Laura, Karin, Lisa, Brian, Jenn, Ben, John, Pete and Mandy. Mahalo!

Great stay - really nice people, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Great property. It's in great condition. We were 2 families, 8 ppl, who stayed in the house. There was plenty of room and we didn't feel on top of each other. The location was great as you could walk right out to the beach and pool. We loved having the privacy and such easy access to the beach. There's not a lot to do so it's definitely a vacation where you need to relax but there are hammocks and lots of chairs to help you mellow out. We'll be back!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying at Casa Colorado over president's day. The house and location are unbelievable. The property managers (Seth and Lindsey) were very helpful in coordinating group transportation and surf lessons (both highly recommended) and anything else we needed. We also got the meal plan. Arling is a fabulous chef. His food was so delicious. The food is better than anything else around and I highly recommend it. Finally, the property was completely safe. This was something I was worried about as we had never travelled to Nicaragua before. Our family cannot wait to come again!!

Perfect location on the perfect surfing beach!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is located on one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever stayed on. Whether you love to surf, run, hike, fish, swim or just laze by the pool with a good book, Casa Colorados is the perfect destination. Our family of 4 really only used the main floor of the house. It can accommodate two families or more. We are not expert surfers, but we all took surf lessons with Ryan and it was so fun! Our youngest son has caught the bug and he spent most days trying to catch the perfect wave! We had great success fishing with Zak's tours.

Amilcar and Martha prepared the most amazing meals for us - highly recommend the meal plan - it is more reasonable than eating out and the food is every bit as good - and often better - than local restaurants! Property managers Seth and Lindsey were extremely attentive and took care of arranging whatever we needed. One of the most fun and relaxing vacations we have taken as a family over the last few years. We will be back!

By far the best VRBO experience we've ever had

  • 5 of 5

This house felt like staying at our own 5 star resort. Everything is taken care of and the staff are phenomenal. The location couldn't be better for surfing and hanging at the beach club. We can't wait to get back.
