Overview

Tola Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Good Surf, Great Food, and Fantastic Manager

  • 4 of 5

First trip to Nicaragua and this condo made a great home base. Colorados surf break out front, and Panga Drops break 10 minutes up the coast. There's a surf shop (NSR) on the resort with a good board selection and the option of swapping out boards. We came during spring break, and the "resort" was quiet and virtually empty -- exactly what we were looking for!

Hacienda Iguana is still secluded and not fully developed. There are limited eating options at the Hacienda itself. I highly recommend the meal plan. I don't know what love and magic Erika puts in her veggies, but they're amazing! Be careful driving around at night. I felt completely safe, but it took a longer than expected to navigate the dirt roads without street lights.

Finally, the manager Todd was fantastic! I asked about the meal plan, and he sent a sample menu loaded with pictures. I asked about surfing, and he described the area breaks in detail, with more pictures. When he learned we were renting a car, he sent a copy of his detailed driving directions (with insider tips like "come to complete stop at this intersection because there are always cops..."). His directions were actually better than the GPS. Don't turn right like the GPS says. Go left per Todd directions so you bypass the heart of town and terrible city street traffic. We had some hiccups on our arrival with some missing DVD cables, some lightbulbs needing replacing, and a washer in the hallway. I sent Todd a note to give him a heads up without expecting them to get addressed by the end of the week. He replied within an hour or two, apologized profusely, and had them taken care of the next day! The satellite went out the day after. Another fyi to Todd, and he had an update the next day. You can't get cable service that fast in the states. Todd is knowledgeable, accomodating, and attentive to your needs. Thanks Todd!

Todd was great

  • 5 of 5

Todd was super helpful with anything we asked and would make runs to get supplies for us anytime. The meal plan was a great idea since the food was great and plentiful and you get your place cleaned everyday (not to mention laundry). the property was really new and clean as well.

Stress Free Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

Todd delivered a great experience when we stayed at his Playa Colorado condo. He set us up with 3 cooks/maids who were real nice and made some incredible local food. With the help of Todd, they even cleaned and cooked up some fish we caught while on a fishing charter. The place was always clean and comfortable. Todd was always around to help with any excursions or local rides. I'd go back.

Amazing Expierence

  • 5 of 5

The condo we stayed in was spacious and clean with a killer view of playa colorado. The food prepared during our trip was amazing and incredibly convenient after a long surf session. Todd went above and beyond accommodating our group, ice, beer, snacks any questions we had, Todd was the man and came through every time. Everything was perfect, this place was the full package and is as good as it gets! Very Satisfied

Awesome condo next to great surf

  • 5 of 5

Great condo right next to Colorado surf break. Clean, spacious, and comfortably slept 8 people. The chefs recommended by todd were excellent. Tons of good food for every meal at a great price. The pool and bar area was great for sunset happy hour. Todd helped us arrange numerous excursions including dirt bike rentals, fishing, and boats to take us to surf sports at great prices. Would definitely come back
