About The Owner

We live in Hacienda Iguana, Nicaragua. Our family purchased this home after visiting Nicaragua and discovering the amazing surf breaks of Playa Colorado and Panga Drops. We love enjoying everything Nicaragua has to offer.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Nicaragua

Why would you stay anywhere else?! Our home is literally on the sand so you can relax to the sounds of the waves after you surf until your arms are numb. This is not a typical rental because it's OUR SECOND HOME!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fantastic first of many visits to Nicaragua.



Corrin's condo at Hacienda Iguana is really fantastic. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. There is A/C in each bedroom, which for some people is a plus at sleep time. The bathrooms are practical, meaning they function well with places to put all your stuff and the water pressure is good too. The kitchen is outfitted well also. We did a lot of our own cooking and it was great to have the in tensile needed to do so.

Corrin as a host was also fantastic. We didn't have the opportunity to meet in person yet, hopefully we will in the future. For any slight concerns we had,Corrin remedied the issues very quickly which was really awesome.

I couldn't possibly say enough good things about her rental condo here at Iguana. Thank you Corrin for helping this to be an awesome first visit to Nicaragua.

Tranquilo!

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of traveling from New England and especially Managua, this was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Travelled with wife & 2 young kids. Kids were thoroughly entertained by surfing & swimming at beach & pool the entire time. My kids were not bored once. Waves at Pangas were better & bigger than I anticipated considering it is the off-season. Highly reccomend hiring staff to guide you to & from airport...never would have found it without him. Not one complaint. Place was quiet even on the weekends & met other friendly guests as well. Will definitely be coming back. Roger, thanks for your quick email responses to all my questions and your staff's hospitality

We rented a car in Managua and arrived late at night (not recommended) after driving down many dirt roads, dodging the pedestrians, bikers, and oxen. We finally arrived at a very nice condo and were greeted by the maid. The place was emaculate and all we could ask for and we didn't venture too often or far after that because we didn't like the dirt roads. Every morning we walked down to the clubhouse where Marta made us an Acai bowl, a burrito and wonderful coffee. Dinner was also great there. Everything is inexpensive in Nicaragua compared to the States or Costa Rica. The Tona beer is great and only $1. The condo was great. The AC in the living area dripped, so we never used it… just AC at night in the bedroom was all we needed. Weekends the local nicas came and the pool area was much more noisy and busy, but weekdays were very pleasant. There were lots of towels, but perhaps bring a bar of soap and insect spray for the fleas on the beach at dusk. Maid service was great because of the tiny sugar ants in the kitchen… don't leave any food out and clean up after yourselves and you'll be fine. No other bugs this time of year. When we needed clothes washed, the maid did it for us at no cost. Weather was 91 every day we were there and the surf was mostly for beginners. I understand April brings big surf and much hotter temps. The people were very friendly. Roger, some chairs to take down to the pool/beach would be nice. We went to San Juan Del Sur one day and never want to return there as it is hot and dirty; lots of young people there though if that's what you want. We are glad we went and glad we chose Hacienda Iguana. I'm writing this from Costa Rica and missing the breeze and the cheap eats.

Amazing Week on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Roger's condo is perfect! We visited with four adults and one baby for one week over Christmas/New Years. Roger arranged for a lovely maid to come in daily and cook for us, which was WELL worth the $15 per day. It is such a safe and friendly community. The condo is just as nice as it seems in the pics. The WiFi drops in and out, but if you are coming here for the connectivity, then you are a fool.

We chose to hire a driver to get us there from the airport and had Zack (Google ZNT Tours) take us in to Rivas to go grocery shopping. Next time - I would email Zack ahead of time and have him stock the fridge for us. Hacienda Iguana is remote so make sure you get your grocery shopping done ahead of time. Roger is very helpful, and helped us (via email) order fresh lobster and fish from Manuel, who visits Iguana daily to sell fresh catches. Delightful.

You can arrange to have massages in the condo for $45 per hour. If you don't speak any Spanish, make sure to download a Spanish-English translation app because you will need it to communicate. Or just email Roger -he made it seamless.

We loved our week at Hacienda Iguana and cannot recommend it highly enough.
