3 bedroom + loft sleeping with breathtaking views, infinity pool and great surf
Hacienda del Mar is the perfect place to to get away from the grind and connect with nature. From your hammock or infinity pool, enjoy the vistas of the ocean, the volcanos in the distance, and the hundreds of tropical birds all around.
Hacienda del Mar was rehabbed from a 50+ year-old cotton barn, keeping the integrity of the original rustic design structure yet adding modern and updated features. The house and has all the conveniences you need such as WiFi, air conditioning in two bedrooms, brand new comfortable beds and linens, and a fully equipped "cooks" kitchen.
There is an upper loft area, a catwalk around the entire upper level of the house, and large wrap around porch with 4 hammocks, 4 lounge chairs and plenty of hang out space. There is an additional outside cooking area with a charcoal and propane grill, sink and plenty of counter space and bar.
There are 3 bedrooms in total; two bedrooms have A/C, comfortable King size beds, a desk, a closet with shelving for clothing, and an ensuite bathroom in each. There is an additional half bath, and an outside shower - originally an old grain silo made out of a giant tree trunk!
The third bedroom is a small room, with a twin-size bed, and night stand. The room has a fan, and if you leave the door to the adjoining bedroom open, the AC unit in the master, cools down that room as well. There is a door joining the two bedrooms, and it also has a door to the living room.
The whole upper level is a loft with beautiful wide planked hardwood floors. There are 3 beds, (2 queen, 1 full) and fans, but we have not included it as a "bedroom" because of lack of privacy.
The home sits on 9 acres of land, that leads down to the beach. From the house to the beach is just a 400 meter walk down the driveway. The property is full of fruit trees for you to enjoy - limes, sour oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, passion fruit, dragon fruit, guava, mangos, cashew and avocado!
Northern Nicaragua is an adventurer's paradise. Kayak in one of the largest protected Estuaries in the country, hike enchanting volcanoes, surf uncrowded waves, or go horseback riding down pristine beaches. We can arrange fishing trips, at home massages, pedicures and more!
There are a handful of restaurants in the area if you don't feel like cooking, or we can arrange help with meal preparation for a small fee. Also, daily housekeeping is included (except for sundays).
Relax, surf uncrowded waves, swim at secluded beaches and enjoy the pristine beauty and authenticity of Northern Nicaragua!

About Brooke Clark
My husband and I met in San Francisco and moved to Nicaragua in 2006, and since have made it our home. We live in Leon, with our 6 year old daughter, and have a real estate business, Aurora Leon Realty. Our "Beach Barn" was a passion project, and when its not being rented, we enjoy it on the weekends. Its our "second baby" as the first tree was planted just days after our daughter was born. We are dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible, and hopefully you will come away from your vacation loving Nicaragua as much as we do!
Brooke Clark purchased this House in 2011
Why Brooke Clark chose Chinandega Department
We have owned several properties in Nicaragua since moving here in 2006, but none struck a chord with us as much as the house and land. Perhaps its because we took our time building it, or because it has so much history locked away in the wood, but each morning while we drink our coffee, watch the ocean and the birds, we couldn't be more at peace. We feel part of the community and feel blessed that the beach is our daughter's playground.
What makes this House unique
I think one of the things we love most about our beach house, is that it connects you with nature immediately. The sound of the ocean, the views of the volcanoes in the distance, and the birds and flowers all allow you to turn off the mental chatter. Whether its swimming, surfing, checking out tide pools, strolling through the property or relaxing in a hammock taking in the views, you will come away feeling refreshed and renewed.

Everything about this property was better than expected. The owners were attentive and anticipated all our questions (directions, recommendations, activities, etc). The location was remote, but close enough to some great local spots. The grounds were beautiful, the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and the house was magical and perfectly renovated. We spent lots of time lounging on the many hammocks, our kids enjoyed the pool, we surfed, walked down to the beach for daily sunsets, played in the tide pools and explored the area. Unlike many active vacations, we left feeling rested and rejuvenated. One of the best trips we have taken as a family! A+
So glad you all enjoyed yourselves, looking forward to having you and your family back in the future! Happy New Year!
My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Hacienda del Mar. The house is spectacular, as is the view of the ocean, the pool is inviting and the sunsets are absolutely stunning. Brooke has designed and decorated a house that belongs in architectural design magazine.. beautiful but liveable.
This property is pretty isolated, road is pretty bumpy, so rent a 4x4...
This property encourages being lazy. We started our days with a swim in the ocean which we had all to ourselves.. long white beach, calm, warm water... we followed with a swim in the pool, and then hung on the patio - which overlooked the ocean.. a couple more trips to the ocean, a nap in the hammock and then it was time for spectacular sunsets... all enjoyed with large cocktails in hand.
We ordered food from Al Cielo - great food, and it was delivered to us at the house - which ties in with our laziness.
There are a few good options for eating out, nearest grocery store is in Chinadega - about an hour away - so its best to stock up on food... and then you can just hang
Brooke, the owner is fantastic. She was in touch, responded quickly to all of our questions, provided great recommendations and insights to help ensure that this was an incredible vacation.
We felt safe, and are so relaxed from a great vacation - thanks to Brooke for helping make it a good one!
A stunning home with lovely touches
We loved everything about it! The house is beautiful and well-appointed. Flavia is a gem. We made lots of use of the surfboards. Thank you so much!
Dream home in a tropical paradise!
Staying at Hacienda del Mar was an enjoyable experience right from the first communications with the host. Brooke was responsive and tremendously helpful with trip planning: she offered recommendations for activities, transportation and local food options, and helped our group set up massages and food prep. Everything about our stay went smoothly. The house is comfortable, beautifully designed and well equipped, and the surroundings truly are paradisial, with great surfing spots close by in a an authentic, small community. Highly recommended!
Fabulous getaway on Pacific ocean
Stayed for a week with friends! Amazing experience. Beautiful weather, house, pool and right on the Pacific ocean. Brooke helped with any concerns or plan arrangements. We are going back next year!
a rare gem.
perched on a hilltop overlooking the farm and the pacific horizon, hacienda del mar is a unique treasure. the thoughtful blend of industrial design and local craftsmanship provides modern comforts and amenities, with breathtaking views and immediate access to natural wonders.
nestled in a local farming and fishing community, you'll find stretches of undeveloped beach, tide pools and epic sunsets, along with active adventures for those who seek them. we kayaked through an estuary and hiked the cosiguina volcano, balancing it all with coffee and cocktails on the sweeping porch, serene afternoons on the beach, and jaw dropping sunsets and stargazing each evening.
this was our first time to nicaragua and the owners, brooke and jordan, were more than gracious with their guidance and assistance. from preparing us for our arrival, to planning excursions, to orchestrating the delivery of fresh fish, they truly went above and beyond.
hacienda del mar is truly a unique treasure, and we hope to be lucky enough to return again in the near future.
Manzano Dos is a small, hard-working rural community, mainly agricultural or fishing based. We have been a part of the community for over 5 years, and have lived in Nicaragua for over 10. The beach in front of our house is one of the longest, flattest most beautiful beaches in the country, and during low tide, you can even drive to Jiquilillo or Padro Ramos Estuary. Because of the slope, or lack thereof, the beach is great for swimming, and on larger swell days, surfing. Padre Ramos Estuary is a huge nature sactuary - a bird watchers delight! Tour the estuary in a kayak, or cruise around the estuary in a boat. In the distance, you can see (and hike!) volcanos, and even on a clear day, you can see the Golf of Fonseca. There are several surf spots in the area, and if you are interested, we can give you a detailed list. There is a full scale Marina just 15-20 minutes away - where you can rent fishing a fishing boat or enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner. Apart from the Marina, there are a handful of restaurants around, one even serves up delicious thin crust pizza and it's only a 10 minute drive from the house. Chinandega is only 45 minutes away, with more restaurants and supermarkets available. Leon, the cultral capital of Nicaragua is only 1.5 hours away, and offers plenty of architectural sightseeing, and diverse restaurants as well.
