|Minimum Stay||2 - 5 nights|
Our condo is a 950 sq. ft. 1 bed 1 bath, with custom made furniture, and has a large futon in the living room. There is a/c in both rooms. The condo over looks the pool as well as Los Perros point, it is a fickle wave but when it is on it is on! Panga Drops is a reef break that is about a three minute walk down the beach and a little further down is Playa Colorado a world class beach break. All three breaks offer phenomenal waves! There are many other waves in the area, just a short trip away but you may not want to leave because the best are right out in front of you!
Hacienda Iguana is a beautiful, well manicured, gated community that is very secluded and peaceful. We have a membership for your use of the 9 hole golf course and the beachfront pool, bar and restaurant located at the south end of the beach, in front of Colorados surf break. We have on site, english speaking management that will help set you up on activities and accomodate you in any way you need. Some of the activities they offer are; horseback riding, boat trips, surf trips, fishing, surf lessons, surf board rental, taxis, yoga, golf cart rental, massage, manicures and Nicaraguan musical entertainment. They will do anything they can to accommodate you. They can even have a boat pick you up directly behind the condo for a fish/surf trip (if the waves aren't too big). Just along the beach and the area surrounding you will find plenty to explore.
We bought this condo in 2009 after one trip down, we instantly fell in love with it, you will understand why when you get there. My father and I own the place, I am Zach, my dad is Andy. We are from Houston Texas.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2009
We bought at this location because the waves are world class, the beach is absolutely stunning, awesome sunsets and the people are very friendly.
You will have direct access to Playa Colorado as well as the other breaks on the beach. Otherwise you would have to take a boat to get here because it is a private community. This is the only one bedroom for rent in iguana.
Roger was very helpful with the while process since we have never been to Nicaragua ourselves. We stayed near managua airport the first night since we arrived late, however roger was able to setup private transportation with Robert who is amazing. The shuttle cost $90, depends on how many people and how much luggage you have (we travel lightly and had a bodyboard and three suitcases) we also took a trip to the store (hight recommended) The condo was described and very well equipped with everything you need. Make sure you bring lots of food since there are no stores around. When you're there you will not want to leave. Large gallons of purified water are given to you for the trip which was very helpful! The view was spectacular and the pool was refreshing. Checkin was very easy, we arrived a little early than expected however the condo was ready and we unpacked as fast as we could so we could enjoy our time. Having access to a tv with cable and very reliable wifi also made us feel very at home. We didn't see much of any of our neighbors since we were always out on the beach exploring. It was definitely hot and no one was out between 12-3pm. I wish we had rented bikes so we could explore more. We will be back for sure!!!!!!!!! Panga drops is about a 10 minute walk and Playa Colorado is 20 minute walk.
My brother and I decided to join in last minute on a group surf trip to Nica. We were too late to get into the house the group was renting, so we had to book our own apartment. We found the 1-bedroom in Hacienda Villas and contacted Roger (property manager) right away. He was quick with response, extremely thorough and articulate in all correspondence, and was super helpful throughout our stay as well. The apartment had a great view of the ocean, a pool, full kitchen, and balcony. I will be booking again with these guys.
My GF and I decided to escape the funky Fall weather in the Colorado Mountains and get a beach fix before ski season. This place was the answer. OK, everyone said the weather in October was always raining. Not true. Some rain but the GREEN of the land and the uncrowded quiet made up for it.
It was our second visit to SW Nica. We knew this was the general area we wanted, and Hacienda Iguana was pretty much exactly it. Just modern enough, and as secure as anyone could want.
Online, this 1BR Condo looked like everything we needed and it didn't disappoint when we got there. Very clean with a full sized kitchen and good appliances. Modern bathroom with a sweet glass block shower. And a provided cell phone made staying in touch with the nearby managers Seth and Lindsey especially easy when we had a few questions. Their staff was also exceptional in answering our needs at anytime.
Super waves all along the beach most days didn't disappoint, even though it was the *off season*. The light sand beach (Playa Colorado) is arguably the best in the country, and even has good shelling for those who might enjoy that sort of thing. Also a nine hole golf course within walking distance. The pool right out the door and downstairs is well maintained and appreciated after a day in the ocean.
We made up for the closed (only in October) restaurants by stocking up with everyday groceries on the way there with our driver, and easily arranged to return for more after a week. Inexpensive fresh fish/lobster from the small fishing village next door were the main courses for patio sunset dinners, accessed via a quick and fun ride on a rental motorcycle from NSR. Or there's some phone numbers in the information folder to call for delivery if desired. Good, funky restaurants there too, that remain open in the off season.
All in all we left after 3 weeks completely satisfied and refreshed, though a little sore from surfing. Would definitely recommend this Unit for a couple wanting what we did. It's comfortable, not too small, and not too big. Perfect...
Even though we haven't given this 5 stars, I would highly recommend this condo to others. Why? The view--the waves crashing over the rocks on the north side--is stunning and the beach is right in front with the soothing sound of the crashing waves. Condos on the south side are set further back. So much nicer to be up close! The condo has been nicely renovated--attractive cabinets in kitchen, nice tile work in bathroom and kitchen. A reasonable selection of dishes, including pots & pans, serving dishes and containers for leftovers. Nice pegs for drying towels and swimwear on the balcony. Comfortable furniture on the balcony. A/C cooled well, although leaked even after repair. When we pointed out some problems with security and a/c leaking, the manager responded immediately (the fast response deserved 5*). Why 4 (4.5 would be more accurate)? Could have used a blender, juicer (a manual one would be fine) in the kitchen. (I think the manager had purchased some items but hadn't put these in the condo yet.) Instructions on how to use the toaster in the microwave would be helpful for the technologically challenged. Futon was functional but not very comfortable. Minor points. 4.7? Definitely would pass on this vrbo # to others!
We arrived here for a stay in July, the place was clean and ready for us in we arrived. Check-in was easy, staff accommodating, and location was prime. Loved our stay here! If we take another surf trip to Nicaragua we will be back here again!
Really enjoyed the set up for Hacienda Iguana and the condos. All staff were very helpful. The whole area and pacific travels was amazing. Spent a month in Costa Rica and prefer to go back to Nica. Surf at Colorados was super fun and Panga Drops was fun on longboard rental. Wish I had left boards at home cuz NSR had plenty of rentals. Wish I could move the family down right now. Thanks Iguana Crew
