Overview

Rivas House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom + loft + den - Beachfront - On the break

Located in a secure, gated community, on a pristine, sandy beach is Casa Colorados. Casa Colorados is a 5000+ sq foot, beachfront 1/2 acre luxury estate, with 4 bedrooms/5 baths, a yoga/hammock palapa and a killer pool looking out at the world class surf break, Playa Colorado. The house comfortably sleeps 8+ people with 3 master suites, 1 guest room, an additional game room that can also be used as a bedroom as well as 2 additional supersized, fold out couches in the living room. The main Master Suite is on the first floor with a king bed, luxury bathroom and bathtub that overlooks the pounding surf. The other two master suites are on the second floor facing the Ocean, one contains a king bed and the other two twins (that can be converted to a king bed). Both of these master suites also contain their own end suites, one with an additional queen futon and the other with an optional inflatable mattress. The fourth guest room is on the first floor next to the master and has an additional two singles (that can be converted to a king bed). The game room also has additional sleeping quarters with a queen fold-out sofa and a single fold-out sofa. All rooms have their own bathrooms and walk in closets with mahogany closet organizers. The home can easily accommodate larger groups, an extended family or 2 families traveling together. The house is complete with a fully equipped kitchen, courtyard with fountain, separate A/C in each room, large plasma TVs, 7.1 Dolby surround sound home theater, outside music, high speed internet, BBQ grill, back-up generator, ping pong table, boogie boards, 2 soft top longboards (8ft), board games and books. There is also a brand new yoga, hammock and Ping Pong palapa on the side of the house. Custom cabinetry and granite run throughout the house. No expense has been spared. We offer you all of the comforts of home on one of the most beautiful beaches in Nicaragua. Daily housekeeping, pool cleaning and a night guard are all included in the quoted rates.

Casa Colorados 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, ALL DAY AND NIGHT LONG!. The house literally sits directly in front of the world class Colorados. Colorados is a fast, barreling beach break with many peaks and A frames. It is a challenging break and best for intermediate to expert surfers. Panga Drops is just a 10-15 minute walk up the beach and breaks on a horse-shoe shaped rock reef. This wave generally has a mellow take off and a more vertical and playful inside section. This break can be good for long boarders or short boarders. Panga Drops amplifies swells and is usually bigger but more forgiving than Colorados. At the very north end of the beach there is a point break, Los Perros Point, that needs a good swell with the right direction to break, but with the perfect combination it can provide very fun rights. We can also arrange boats to any of the 10+ surrounding breaks.

Hacienda Iguana is the ideal community for those who want to surf, golf, explore or just kick back and relax on a breathtaking beach. It is a very secure community with 2 sets of gates to enter, guards posted around the community and Casa Colorados also has it's own night guard specifically for the house. The security staff in place insures that you will feel very secure and comfortable to roam around the community and beach as you please. That being said the whole area is very safe and you will find that the local community is extremely humble, friendly and helpful.

For those that don't surf there are plenty of other great adventures, activities and day trips you can enjoy. We can arrange surf trips by boat of fishing trips leaving from Iguana if you can swim or paddle out to the boat or out of Gigante if you prefer to load the boat from shore. There are some great hikes in the area to get out and enjoy the amazing views, clean air, nature and wildlife viewing. Hacienda Iguana has it's own challenging 9 hole golf course. A round of golf (18 holes) with golf cart and clubs is only $45/person. On Wednesdays there is an organized afternoon golf scramble for guests and residents. Other available activities in the area include massage, yoga, surf trips by boat or taxi, surf lessons, fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, SUPing, hiking, bike rental, moped rentals, moto rentals, catamaran tours, transportation and/or day trips to get a taste of culture in the surrounding cities or to go visit volcanoes, crater lakes and other natural attractions throughout southern Nicaragua.

Our rental management company, Iguana Surf Rentals, is located in the Hacienda Iguana Commercial Area and we are around and we are available for anything you might need and any to help with any questions or concerns you might have. We provide an info guide in the condo, with information on activities, hikes, day trip ideas, maps, a restaurant guide, local restaurant menus etc.

Within the community of Hacienda Iguana there are currently five restaurants. The restaurant at the beach club serves healthy and delicious plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a great beach bar with happy hour specials. Don Eloy’s bar and restaurant serves sandwiches, wings, bar food and pizza, has a full bar and is open for lunch and dinner. This is also a great place to watch sports games. Scoops and Spokes is an artisan ice cream, coffee and panini shop that also offers bike rentals and tours. Vana tacos is a new taco shop open right behind the Iguana Surf Rentals Office and is open for lunch and dinner with veggie, chicken and carne asada tacos and burritos. Casa Madera is a new restaurant with local Nicaraguan cuisine, open for lunch and dinner, and located in the wood house just east of the golf condos. Don Eloys, Scoops and Spokes and Vana Tacos are all located in Iguana’s growing commercial center where you will also find NSR Surf Shop, Stop and Go Surf Market (groceries), Satori Spa and our office, Iguana Surf Rentals and Real Estate. There is also now a free community shuttle (6 person golf cart) that circles the interior roads of Hacienda Iguana during the day offering free rides to guests. This is a great way to access surf breaks, the beach club, restaurant and bar, the Golf Pro Shop and/or Iguana's Commercial Center.

Coco’s Beach Boutique is now open and is a boutique store offering women’s clothing, jewelry, hats, bags and more. This boutique is located in Casa Anana, the small white house just east of the golf condos. They also offer a health/deli cuisine (vegetarian and vegan options) and a small bar with specialty beer, wine and cocktails.

Just outside of Iguana’s gates (3km away) there is the new Rivera Market Place with an Avis Car Rental Company, BAC Bank Branch and ATM, Rivera Market/Grocery Store and Board Port Surf Shop, surfboard storage and sales. There are a multitude of other great restaurants within a 15-20 minute drive from Hacienda Iguana.

About The Owner

The property is owned by Doan Enterprises Inc. Defined Benefit Pension Plan

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Nicaragua

This property was developed at this location due to its significant offerings in the areas of surf and golf. The surfing here offers one of the few places on the planet where the wind is almost always offshore, the water warm, and the waves are perfect. The golf is one of the few golf courses in the entire country of Nicaragua.

What makes this house unique

Surfing, Golfing, activities, boat rides, sailing and fish adventures, horseback riding, zip lines, massage, manicure, food catering, or anything else your heart desires.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What an amazing way to end 2009! Thank you for a wonderful vacation. The experience wouldn't have been half as much fun without Seth, Lindsey and the team. You all made Nicaragua proud... Frank, Laura, Karin, Lisa, Brian, Jenn, Ben, John, Pete and Mandy. Mahalo!

Gorgeous Location!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further...you've found the best house in Playa Colorado Iguana! This home is amazing. Our family of four enjoyed a week in paradise at Casa Colorados. Seth and Lindsey are extremely helpful and responsive. They'll help you plan a dream vacation, from horseback riding on the beach to jet skiing in Gigante. The staff at Casa Colorados are wonderful. It was a true vacation for us....no cooking or cleaning for week! The meals were delicious and plentiful and the house was sparkling clean. Our kids loved the fact Scoops and Spokes delivered ice cream to our front door...nice perk for a 10 and 12 year old!

Words cannot describe the amazing beach front view. The most difficult decision you'll have to make each day is if you want to relax in the pool or on the beach. ;) The colorful sunsets every evening are not to be missed...gorgeous!

Book this house now, you won't be disappointed!

Unreal!!

  • 5 of 5

I really can't figure out where to start. Everything about Casa Colorados is top notch! The house itself is breathtaking, every room has everything you need, the fact that you are on the beach is amazing and the views are breathtaking. The staff are perfect! They made each day better than the last. Lindsey and Seth are so good at what they do, so helpful and willing to help with anything you need.

I've already started to figure out how I can get back, hopefully it will be sooner than later.

To the staff of Casa Colorados and Lindsey and Seth, thank you for making our family trip one that we will never forget.

Unforgettable vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I travelled to Nicaragua for the first time in feb 2016 and we are so happy we did. Casa Colorados is an incredible house and the pictures online don't even do it justice. The house is immaculate and the staff are so caring and friendly. We sincerely miss them along with the incredible views of the ocean. Sitting in the pool everyday watching amazing surfers is something we soon won't forget! May I add we also had 3 babies with us and they couldn't have been happier in Nicaragua. Thanks to the Casa colorados team for helping us plan such a wonderful family vacation. We can't wait to go back!!!!

Not your ordinary VRBO...

  • 5 of 5

I'll start by saying the managers and team at Casa Colorados are top notch. Seth and Lindsey are extraordinarily attentive and the team they have built around them is top notch - not just by Nicaragua standards where the service economy can be a bit lax - but by top destination standards. If you have the chance to stay at this property don't pass it up!

The house is perfect for adventure oriented families and groups - well equipped and suited for seasoned travelers. Highlights are the pool and location - right on the Colorados' break. Each of the rooms is well appointed and the main living areas are roomy and well furnished. Maintenance of the property has been excellent and the recent upgrades to the landscaping and grounds make the whole property an inviting destination. Another of the highlights for us was the food and service - it isn't often we are able to stay at a house and avoid clean-up, cooking and dishwashing. It was that much more relaxing as a result.

Lastly and importantly, the owners of the property seem to have made a great impact on the local community - all of the expats and locals in the area were extraordinarily complimentary of their contributions.

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Seth & Lindsey are amazing, very generous with their time to help with anything needed. I give them a 10 out of 10. And of course Casa Colorado's is the best place in Nica and the waves were killer.
