Overview

Tola House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedroom, 7 bathroom with 2 pools, privacy and on Colorados surf break

Located in a secure, gated community, on a pristine, sandy beach is the Wave Garden. The Wave Garden is a gorgeous, beachfront house located right on Colorados surf break. The house is the largest in Hacienda Iguana with 6 bedrooms, each with it's own ensuite bathroom and is the only house in Hacienda Iguana with 2 pools. The 2 large upstairs master bedrooms share a 2nd floor balcony overlooking the ocean and surf. The house is tastefully decorated with custom made hardwood furniture, beautiful tiles and local art. The house is set back just a bit from the other houses offering much more privacy than the other beachfront houses. There is a killer beachfront pool on the beach right on the edge of the property that has unobstructed views to the north and south and the perfect viewing spot to watch your friends surf or just relax and enjoy the view. There is also a private dipping pool in the courtyard for those that want to get away from the group. There are a/c units in each bedroom, an open air floor plan for the kitchen and living area, plenty of patio area to sit, relax and watch the surf, Claro TV, wifi internet through out the house and a generator for back up energy. The house can comfortably sleeps 12 people. The 2 upstairs master bedrooms each have a king bed, ocean views and have access to the upstairs patio. There are 4 bedrooms downstairs surrounding the courtyard. Two of the bedroom have queen beds and the other 2 bedrooms each have 2 twin beds.

Iguana Surf Rentals is there to cater to all your wants and needs, set up activities, boat rides, fishing, horseback riding, airport transportation, yoga, massage, surf photography, zip lines, day trips, arrange a meal package, nicaraguan musical entertainment, spanish lessons or anything else your heart desires. Daily housekeeping and a night guard are also provided for further comfort. We offer you all of the comforts of home on one of the most beautiful beaches in Nicaragua.

Iguana Beach 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. The house literally sits directly in front of the world class surf break Colorados and it is only a 10 minute walk down the beach to Panga Drops. Colorado is a fast, tubing, beach break, with many peaks, while Panga Drops is a mellower A-framing reef/rock break. We can also arrange boats or a taxi to any of the 10+ surrounding breaks.

The Wave Garden also offers membership access to Hacienda Iguana's 9 hole golf course. This well manicured course is virtually yours as you play with no crowds whatsoever and has great year round conditions. The course is a challenging course that has one hole with an amazing ocean view. This house also has full access to the Community Beach Club, pool, volleyball net and restaurant and bar just 2 lots to the south.

In the community there are currently 2 restaurants. The restaurant at the beach club serves 3 healthy and delicious meals a day and here is a bar and restaurant (Don Eloys) that serves sandwiches, wings and pizza and has a full bar. There are a handful of other great restaurants that are accessible by car, taxi, boat, or a nice hike to a small fishing village.

Great house, location, food and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with two great master bedrooms. The pool, balcony and patio below are all perfect for watching the surf at Colorados. The food was great and housekeeping kept the place really clean. There was a huge supply of filtered drinking water. Seth hooked us up with a few boat trips to some great reef breaks.

We will definitely be back to stay at the Wave Garden house.

Best house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem. With the added beachfront pool this place is awesome. The pool has these ledges on the sides that are about 4 feet wide and are shallow enough for my 3 year old (who, in the past has been terrified of pools) to have a blast. He also had fun playing with the other kids at the beach club about 100 feet away. We also went for the meal program. I highly recommend it because there isn't really a grocery store nearby. And, it's a great deal. The food was delicious and we had leftovers- add eggs and you've got breakfast. But, let's not forget the surf break literally right in front of the pool. My only con is that there were only 6 bar stools for the outdoor bar (one for every bedroom). Not enough, as we spent most of our time there. I really had to dig deep to find that single shortcoming. WE WILL BE BACK. Oh, and by the way Seth and Lindsey are incredible hosts. The house staff is great as well. They were there to clean and such but not intrusive. Best place on this beach. Tip generously, they rock.

Wave Garden

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults stayed at the Wave Garden for 9 days in July 2014 and had an amazing time. The house was located directly in front of the Colorados surf break and offered all day viewing entertainment of the surfing. The house was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Favorite parts of the house were the indoor and outdoor pools, lush tropical gardens, art, outdoor bar, and upstairs balcony with crochet hammocks. We kept the glass accordion doors open all day to enjoy the sea breeze. Bedrooms were icy cold at night with the ACs.

We got the meal plan and enjoyed every one of Roger and Amilkar's meals! The banana pancakes, dragonfruit juice, cantaloupe smoothies, lobster tails, red snapper, fish tacos, salads and refried beans were our favorites. We were never hungry and were hesitant to try any meals outside of the house because ours were so amazing. We did venture to Magnific Rock one night for a sunset dinner and highly recommend that for both the food and amazing panoramic views.

We spent our days surfing at Colorados and Panga Drops, hiking, biking, strolling the beaches for shells, and relaxing in the pools and the hammocks. We rented bikes and explored Hacienda Iguana, the eco reserve, and parts of nearby Rancho Santana. We saw monkeys, exotic birds, iguanas, and lots of crabs! Check the pool for crabs before you get in! They were harmless but loved to take a dip in the pool! We hiked to Gigante and enjoyed Tonas at Buena Vista. We also hiked to Los Perros (both the short way and long way) and made it over to the stairs and explored Playa Duna. Some in the group also rented moto bikes and explored that way. We enjoyed happy hour at the Iguana Beach Club -- $1 Tonas and must-try Passionfruit Margaritas and Banana Daikiris.

Seth and Lindsey were so attentive and helpful with all the coordination. I coordinated the trip, transportation from the airport, and meal plan with Lindsey ahead of time and Seth was very attentive to our needs while in the house. I really appreciated the cell phone provided in the house to contact them at a moment's notice.

Nicaragua is a beautiful country and the people are so friendly. We were worried about safety prior to travelling but never felt unsafe while there.

We can't wait to go back!!!

Exceeds Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for surfers and to watch surfers. Perfect location! The new pool is great to swim in and to prop your chair to watch the surfers. Great floor plan. We did the meal plan and had a great cook and house keeper. The bar is one house down and fun to get a drink and chat with others. The caretakers Seth and Lindsey arranged horseback riding, transportation, massages and mountain bike riding. Very safe and beautiful place.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Wave Garden for close to two weeks with two families. We had 4 children ages 7 and 10 (2 at each age). Wired the money to James Hearn in Nica and arrived in Nica hoping it all worked out. First time we had wired money for a VRBO house (this is our 4th VRBO rental). It did work without a glitch. James arranged transport from Granada where we stayed for 4 days (loved it must see). On time, great driver.

The house is pretty much what you see here on the site. 6 really nice BR. Nice baths in each BR. The pool is really small, just a plunge pool really, and watch the chlorine. Great beachfront location right on the Colorado surf break. Huge covered patio and outdoor bar to hang. Outdoor BBQ and wood for bonfires. Very nice furnishings. Bikes were there and new. Motorcycles available. WIFI and cable worked. Backup generator for power outages. You need to rent boards. So house was great...exactly what you see. Beautiful.

Location. Right on the beach, just 100 feet from the beach club for Hacienda Iguana. So best location in our opinion. The beach club needs a new operator, but the pool is nice and it is great to go down there with the kids. There are cocktails and food there but...1 star stuff. Bring your own stuff there. But the bar/palapa is nice. The river was cutting across the front of the beach club and in fact was out in front of the Wave Garden, but I guess it flows in different patterns. Maybe check this.

We did the food program. It is the only way to go. Sarita cooked. She is unbelievable. I mean the best. Ask for her. She cooked some of the best meals we have ever had. The BEST pork tacos I have ever tasted, BBQ lobster to die for. James supplied beer, rum, soda, drinks for the kids, etc. Buy wine on way in. Everything. The frig was loaded at all times. Fresh fruit at every meal, handmade juice, etc. We wanted for nothing. One quick illustration....we had a family come over for dinner and started making drinks. Well about 8PM we text James "Emergency Out Of Rum". 10 minutes later Eriberto (El asistente to James) arrives by motorcycle with ice cold beer and 1.5L of iced rum. NOW THAT IS SERVICE!!!

Hacienda Iguana has a golf course and other amenities. But frankly we did not leave the Wave Garden except for a couple of day outings. We used Zack Lopez from Gigante for boats to San Juan, day trips, etc. Great guy and speaks great English..

The surf can be huge so remember this if you have small kids. And remember SARITA!

Amazing Location, Great Service!

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from a week-long stay at the Wave Garden with a large group of friends from graduate school. To say we enjoyed our stay would be an understatement.

Situated directly on the beach, in front of the main surf break (which is for sure the best wave I have ever surfed), we had plenty of space for everyone to lounge outside, or under the shade on the deck. The rooms were also spacious and the fact that each one of the 6 rooms had its own bathroom was a huge benefit.

In addition to the house, we were blown away by the level of service we received. The meals were excellent, with a good variety, and we were provided plenty of snacks and alcohol to ensure we had the best and most relaxing week possible. The manager, James, went above and beyond arranging transportation for a large group with multiple travel schedules, and the local surf shop made sure to keep everyone stocked with boards and lessons.

In the end, the key differentiator staying at the Wave Garden was its ability to provide something for everyone in our group. Having travelled to numerous locations in Central America to surf, I was nervous that the non-surfers in our group would lack in things to do. Not so, while half of the group surfed, the remainder chose to take boat trips, go fishing, take a day trip to San Juan del Sur, and hike around the area. Not to mention lounge and relax on the beach. It was a great location, with great service, and I would highly recommend the Wave Garden to anyone looking for a relaxing, surf filled vacation.
