Overview

Nicaragua House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Home With Private Court Yard & Pool, 4 Bedrooms/4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Perfect Surf Getaway for Family and Friends.

Located in the Gated Golf Course Community of Hacienda Iguana under a beautiful canopy of trees and only 50 yards from the white sandy beaches. Perfectly nestled in between two world class surf breaks Panga Drops (200 yards South) and Colorado (200 yards North).

Our family built this colonial style home, not only for it's beauty, but for the incredible privacy the home and courtyard provides.

All indoor living spaces are air conditioned for your comfort and lead out into our private courtyard.

The indoor La Sala (Living room), El Comedor (Dining room) and La Cocina (Kitchen) is located in our great room and is equipped with all of the modern conveniences from home.

We have Wifi and Cable TV to keep you connected.

Each of the four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and private entrance from the courtyard. The two upstairs bedrooms overlooking the courtyard are adjoined by another covered outdoor living space where guests can gather and relax.

We hope you will enjoy spending time with your family and friends in our beautiful home, whether it's sunbathing by our private pool, relaxing on the patio or sharing a meal. There is also an outdoor shower to wash away the day of sand and surf.

Casa Bella comes staffed with a maid and caretaker, and if you prefer not to cook, we can provided a meal plan at an additional cost.

We love our Nicaraguan Dream Home and we think you will too. So come and enjoy La Pura Vida with us.

Perfect. Clean and private

  • 5 of 5

House is great, only a 30 second walk to a very private beach. We traveled with 6 kids ages 4 to 8 and found the house set up to be perfect with the pool and trees acting as part of the living area. I would absolutely rent this same house again. Meal plan was the way to go, we did breakfast and lunch and went out for dinner.

Rent a golf cart. Its a fun way to explore in the down time.

Fantastic Nicaragua Stay...

  • 5 of 5

Casabella was an absolutely wonderful getaway for our family, we have 2 small boys (4 & 6) and came with another family with two small boys as well. The pool was just PERFECT, it was so fun with its lagoon style and all the tropical plants surrounding it. The home's set-up is so enjoyable, all built surrounding a beautiful courtyard with the pool. Each room itself is so nice, with AC if needed, and super comfortable beds. The property is amazingly maintained and cared for by the staff. We had a few cute critter visits from monkeys, iguanas, and a little spotted skunk....the kids loved it.

As for the location, if you are considering the Hacienda Iguana area then this is the house for you! Walk right out and through a tiny stretch of forest onto the beach. We chased crabs with flashlights on the beach each night and walked down to the 'clubhouse' every day for sunset cocktails while the boys swam in the community pool. The restaurant there is a GREAT option, super yummy, healthy food and wonderful smoothies for kids and drinks for grown-ups:) We also had a meal plan through the home, and Marlene had dinner waiting for the 8 of us many nights of our stay. She was so wonderful and helpful, made it so us moms could actually take some time off because of her work cooking and cleaning for our families. So wonderful! So relaxing!

Thank you to the Casabella crew for an awesome stay. Fantastic!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

4 couples went and shared the house for a week. All of the guys and two of the girls are surfers. We had an awesome time surfing right out front and hanging out at the Iguana pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the first night we were there something broke on the house and the power was out for the whole night (even the generator didnt work). Luckily, the staff was able to get the house fixed the next day and we enjoyed a great rest of the stay.

Definitely recommended.

Favorite Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Casa Bella. The house is large and the bedrooms are separated giving our 3 families adequate privacy. The kids enjoy playing in the pool and watching movies on the large screen t.v. It is a quick walk to the beautiful beach where we enjoy playing in the waves. The members of the house staff are wonderful and very helpful. We are looking forward to returning to Casa Bella.

Loved Casa Bella

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed for 1 week at Casa Bella and we had so much fun, the house is beautiful and it's perfectly located in between the 2 surf spots at Colorado. We surfed the whole week great waves and both spots are walking distance from the house. The staff at the house were all amazing, very helpfull, polite and friendly. Want to go back for sure, the house is big with open spaces and a lovely Colonial Design. 100% recommended.
