You will also get to enjoy the Private Beach Club with infinity pool, showers, bathrooms, BBQ, vollayball court .

About Maggie Pixley - owner

When my husband and I were looking for our future winter retirement home to get out of the cold Michigan weather, we decided on Nicaragua. I fell in love with the beautiful pristine Iguana Beach the moment I put my foot in the sand. I knew this was the place for us, we both are world travelers since I've been in the Travel Business for over 35 years and we have traveled to many beautiful places in the world. Seeing this unbelievable natural beauty was amazing, Iguana beach is stunningly beautiful. It is a perfect mixture of remoteness and luxury. We fell in love instantly with it's raw beauty and it's beautiful friendly people. We are looking forward to when my husband retires and we get to spend winters in this beautiful paradise. In the meantime it's yours to enjoy.

Maggie Pixley - owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why Maggie Pixley - owner chose Tola

We decided on Nicaragua because of it's tropical climate, white sandy beaches, World Class surf, golf, fishing and 330 days of offshore wind. It was a very easy decision for us to invest in Hacienda Iguana Golf & Beach Club, our condo being located directly in front of a World Class surf break was the best choice. We're sure our guests will enjoy unobstructed views from our ground floor condo and it's great location, just a few steps away from the line up and where the action is at Hacienda Iguana.

What makes this condo unique

This ground floor condo offers easy access to the green lawn and putting green and of course the Playa Colorado Surf Break is only steps away from the patio. We enjoy the sound of waves crashing, birds singing, howler monkeys howling and spectacular sunsets. It is an incredibly peaceful, quite and very relaxing place! The Resort is in private gated community that offers many choices of activities for all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Maggie

I just wanted to thank you again for everything. We had a great time, good waves and good vibes. Pilis bar/food is a great addition to Iguana. Great way to spend time when not in the water. It was great to finally meet you in person.

Trying to set up going back to Nica in the summer.

Will keep you posted.

Top Notch Owners and Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently traveled to Nicaragua and stayed at Hacienda Iguana. We found this place and instantly knew that it would be a great place to visit and this condo was the nicest in the community. Maggie was going to be using her condo when we were planning on visiting, but she was so helpful and booked us into their neighbor’s unit. Don’t hesitate to call even if your dates are occupied because Maggie is so knowledgeable about the community and what places are available that she was able to provide a few different choices of other available condos and homes. Maggie also arranged for her driver to pick us up and we constantly referred to her website as a great resource for all the things to see in the area.

While we didn’t stay in her condo, she did introduce herself to us and gave us a tour of her place. It is obvious that she and her husband put a lot of effort into caring for their vacation home and making it extremely comfortable for their guests. They have upgraded furnishings and extra touches that make the place feel cozy and inviting. When we come back we will definitely be staying in this condo!

We had the best time on this trip. This place really does have it all! If you’re adventurous and like to explore there are tons of things to do and see. If you are more into relaxing and having a peaceful time in a gorgeous setting, this would work for you too! No need to even leave Iguana as they have plenty of good food, awesome drinks and some of the nicest people we’ve met while traveling. Thank you for making this as unforgettable vacation!

Best Holiday ever! Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect destination for our family! We are a famliy of 5 with 3 very small kids. We were looking for a place that would be safe for the kids and this was it! The property is directly on an amazing putting green which no one uses so it felt like we had our own enormous personal backyard. Within a minutes walk we were at an amazing infinity pool which our kids swam in for about 3 hours a day. They learnt to swim on this holiday which was great! The food at pili's place directly on the beach by the pool was some of the best food we tasted while in Nicaragua. Ideal if you don't feel like cooking. Everything you need is within the complex of Hacienda Iguana so you never have to leave apart for the weekly shop to Rivas for groceries. We stayed here for a month and only left to get groceries. We also decided against hiring a car and we were pleased we did. When we needed to go for a shop we used the local taxi service and saved ourselves a lot of money. Once we were here we didn't want to leave! The condo itself was perfect! Great kitchen facilities, entertainment, comfy beds, AC, and decor!

Some of our Family members asked us when we returned if one month was too long... our answer .....definitely not we just wish it could have been longer!!!

First Time in Nicaragua

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful in getting us the information we requested and helped us obtain a driver from Managua to Hacienda Iguana. There were no surprises, except that everything was just as promised and presented in the pictures, information and quality of the accommodations and beach.

The property was clean and everything worked. I came to surf and my wife liked to take long walks on the beaches north and south of the condo. We walked to Gigante, the nearby village several times. I would recommend this to friends and family.

The resort is in a great location, great beach and accessible to many other Nicaragua attractions. Felt very safe and comfortable in this gated community. The condo was fantastic, beautifully furnished and great access to the beach and resort pool/restaurant. We found the resort staff to be very courteous and friendly. Plan on returning to enjoy the beach, surf and golf again.

Awesome Condo and Great surfing Location too.

  • 5 of 5

I've surfed for 30 years all over the world and really selective as to where and when I travel. I went to Nicaragua because it was easy to get to and I surfed both on my arrival date and departure date. I've been there before but decided on a nice condo this time. The condo was Great ! I also manage and own Vacation rentals in San Diego so I suppose I would be a good critic. The condo itself was extremely clean and had literally everything you need. Vizeo TV, fast internet, everything to cook with, washer and dryer all of the soaps needed, safe, and really comfortable beds. The AC is great too, works perfect and cools down the condo within a few minutes. There was also a microwave...pretty much everything you would need and expect in a High end condo rental. The area is extremely safe as it's a private area that extends about 2 miles along the coast and about 1 mile inland. The surf was world class. The wave you can see in the photos is the south peak that sometimes breaks across the river mouth. The wind was offshore everyday and the surf never dropped below head high. Basically you walk down the little grass area right to the club house and from there you can see a bunch of peaks so the best surfing is from the river mouth to about 500 yards to the right. Food There is a bar restaurant thing that is good but opens at 4 pm. It's about a 10 min walk down the jungle dirt road. the food is expensive there though so don't expect any deals. The rest of the places to eat are substandard and expensive. Especially in the little fishing village to the south. Make sure you stop and the big store about 1 hour out of town to get everything you need to cook. The prices are great, but load up. I cant stress this enough. There are some great restaurants about 3o min north of the condo but you need a cab to get there and I stayed around close by. There is a couple of small stores, one which is a rip off which is under the bar restaurant, just make sure you shop before you arrive in the big town. Also locals come by to self fresh Mahi 4 dollars a pound so I cooked up a lot of fish. I cant stress enough the safety of the area too, but look out for scorpions on the dirt roads at night. Also bring long pants and a long sleeve shirt for mosquitos. The spray does not work so get the lotion ( trust me on this one. They do spray the grounds and it's the least amount of mosquitos Ive experienced in Central America. Be cool and bring some things for the locals old clothes etc.
