COLONIAL STYLE BEACHFRONT MANSION ON NICARAGUA'S BEST SURFING BEACH.

Bahia Gigante House Rental Photos and Description

5ba/5br beachfront home on Panga Drops surf break. 50ft surf view infinity pool.

50ft surf front infinity pool perfectly positioned to watch world class surf action at the Panga Drops surf break directly out front. Infinity swimming pool also enjoys spectacular sunset views of the magnificent Los Perros point. Fort Walker is a truly remarkable home with a well thought out, functional design. Ample upwind openings, deep terraces on southern elevations and the biggest balcony along the beachfront give for incredible spaces to live, lounge and luxuriate.

***The Accommodation***

Fort Walker takes inspiration from centuries old Spanish colonial architecture. Distributed over two floors with its master suite downstairs by the pool, three further bedrooms upstairs and a stand alone casita in the garden this home comfortably accommodates ten guests. The master suite has a king size bed; the remaining four bedrooms each have a convertible king/ twin bed. This allows near complete flexibility in sleeping arrangements for up to 10 guests. The main house has an atrium style living room with multiple upwind openings to the prevailing northeasterly winds. Full width bi-fold doors give incredible ocean and surf break views from the living/ dining area and kitchen. Southern elevations have deep shade structures to keep the sun out of the house and create fresh covered terraces to relax by the pool and enjoy the views. The furniture is handmade from precious hardwood trees recovered in the wake of tropical storms in Nicaragua’s RAAN province along the northern border with Honduras. The furniture was hand made to the highest levels of quality by one of Nicaragua’s leading carpenters in the crafts & folklore capital, Masaya.

***All inclusive***

Our all inclusive packages are carefully tailored for your complete Vacation Bliss. You will be met at the airport in a new, spotlessly clean vehicle. There will be a cooler with snacks and refreshments waiting for you on board. The music system is iPhone/ Bluetooth compatible, so have a playlist ready to set the mood for the scenic 2.5hr drive to the house. There’ll be no need for a grocery stop on the way down as our team will take care of those arrangements for you. You’ll arrive to find the house fully stocked with everything you need. The fruit bowl overflowing, cold beers in the fridge and the delicious smell of home cooking. Fresh squeezed fruit juices, Nicaraguan shade grown coffee... the best brunches you ever had... locally caught lobster will be the order of the day though your stay. As things run out, we replenish. Our English speaking concierge is just a phone call away to assist whenever needed and help out with day trip arrangements and activity plans. Catering costs $40/day for adults; $20 - $35/day for kids depending upon age. Airport shuttles cost $140 up to 4 pax +$10/extras.

***Where exactly is Fort Walker located?***

This unique home is located on the beachfront within the Hacienda Iguana resort in Nicaragua’s southern Tola province. Just steps from the Panga Drops surf break of which the house has direct views or an enjoyable ten minute walk up the beach to Colorados aka ‘the Nicaraguan pipeline’. Hike the Los Perros point to gaze incredible views up the coast or stroll the beach in the other direction to the quaint fishing village of Gigante.

***Activities? Things to do?***

We can assist with organizing excellent in-house massages for $30/hr. We can line up fishing boats to take you out and catch your dinner, or transport you around the local surf breaks. The inshore views of the coastline are stunning, the fishing bountiful and the surf as consistent as exists on the planet. There’s more to Nicaragua than epic surf and beautiful beaches. Nicaragua is culturally rich, geographically diverse and has many authentic and as yet unspoiled treasures. You should plan to visit the Island of Ometepe or go see colonial Granada. Our safe & salaried drivers are on hand to take you wherever you need to go and show you the very best of this beautiful land. There are too many activities to list here, so don’t hesitate to get in touch via the form below and we look forward to being of assistance to you in planning your vacation!

LARGE, WELL-DESIGNED OCEANFRONT HOME WITH DIRECT ACCESS TO SURF

  • 5 of 5
I helped coordinate a 10 day stay with 10 friends at Fort Walker. The group was a mix of couples and individuals, surfers and non-surfers. The home's configuration of bedrooms/bathrooms and suites were a perfect solution. The living areas are incredibly spacious and inviting- ideal for indoor/outdoor living. The location can't be beat for surfers or beach-lovers. For those afraid of waves (which this beach definitely has), the pool is a perfect alternative. Coordinating transfers for the group was a breeze- even multiple trips to Managua and a border crossing to Costa Rica! The staff that looks after the home provide incredible, friendly hospitality. We chose to have our entire stay catered and found the quality of food to be excellent.

If you are looking for a large, well-designed oceanfront home with direct access to surf that accommodates a big group of discerning travelers this is an excellent choice.

INCREDIBLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
my wife and I brought our 2month old there and we were the first guests to stay in this house. it was amazing. great attention to detail on the construction, nice open-aired layout, great view of panga drops, sturdy wifi, and magnificent pool just a few feet from the high-tide line. more than that, however, was the attentiveness of the staff. Gloria kept the house tidy and cooked great meals for us every day, and in particular David, Nelson and James were jonny-on-the-spot with attending to our concerns/scares (1 tsunami warning, 2 small quakes, and my baby's first cold...they immediately got us to an american doctor 20mins away). potential improvements will probably come over time as the house is more used---could have used a few more towels, some standardized grocery stocking (to avoid costly catering or car rental), and a shaded wading area in the pool. all in all our group had a great stay and would go back and recommend to others---it's the nicest house on a really nice beach. thanks guys!
