About this listing

The space

The Cabana is a 1BR/1BA apartment just steps away from some of the best surf on the planet. It is 300 sq. ft.efficient, the bedroom with two twins, access to owner's pool and beach and private patio. The Cabana adjoins the garage of our ocean front home, named See Shack. We are located in Hacienda Iguana, one of Nicaragua’s premier gated golf resort developments. Our Golf Membership allows you greens fee, cart and clubs for $30/person. There are few rentals closer to the beach than this one. You can wake up, check the surf and then go get tubed.

Unlike Costa Rica or El Salvador, this small area of Nicaragua has year round deep water swell and 300+ days a year of all 24 hour offshore winds blowing in from Lake Nicaragua. No matter what kind of board you ride, there are lefts, rights, and at least 8-10 breaks in the area just for you. Two of the best, Colorado and Panga Drops are on the beach just outside your front door.

We know your vacation time is precious, and Patty and I live in the main house on Playa Iguana’s beautiful white sand beach and we can help ensure that your stay with us is perfect. You can rent your own car or if you like, we can arrange for our trusted bilingual driver to pick you up at the airport, take you grocery shopping, sightseeing and deliver you to your home away from home.

Plus there is more than just great surf available. In addition to sunset beach walks and drinks, we can show you birds, monkeys and wildlife on jungle and river walks. An hour’s walk down the beach through Playa Amarilla and you’ll find yourself in the little fishing village of Gigante enjoying fresh lobster and an ice cold beer. Full or half-day tours, horseback rides or boat trips to fish or explore more remote surf breaks are a bargain and easily arranged. Panga Vista even has its own Golf Club Membership, allowing you to play on our 10-hole course at reduced rates. Whatever you need, we will do our best to make it happen.

Or you can relax with a good book. The Cabana has A/C, wireless internet, satellite TV and drinking water. The kitchen is modern and includes everything you need for meal preparation. If you do not feel like cooking, Don Elroy’s restaurant and bar is onsite.

Great surf, comfortable beach front accommodations, loads of activities in one of the most beautiful spots in the world -- all at a great price. Please contact us if we can answer any questions or help in any way.

Villas Iguana is a guarded beach/golf community of well-to-do expatriates. The whole property is beautiful and well kept, the swimming pool is intricate. The beach is wide and long, waves of pro surfing quality. Our host Joe is a surfer himself, has a nice stock of surfing equipment, let us use one of the body-boards, thanks, Joe. The community is insulated from the rest of the country. All bars, restaurants, shops feature prices in U.S. $ and not much cheaper then in the U.S. So, if you have a limited budget, do your grocery shopping before getting there.

My boyfriend and I booked to stay for 4 nights. As soon as we arrived we extended our stay. Jack and Patty are lovely people and such a pleasure to stay with. The place has everything you need. Two bikes too get around. Restaurants close by and uncrowded surf right out the front. I'd love to come back and would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

Everything went smoothly. Very practical for a surf vacation. Had everything you need and close to Panga Drops. You don't really need a car. There are good restaurants and a little tienda to buy basic provisions nearby.

Patty and Jack are AWESOME! Anyone would be very lucky to be hosted by these two! Their casita is about as close to the beach as you can get without floating away. Both Patty and Jack have guided us through some helpful advice about surfing, fishing, and other fun things to do in the area. The casita has everything you need for your stay. Right outside you have your own personal patio with a hammock for lazy down time, or doing some yoga! You couldn't ask for a better place to stay! Also a key note, we felt VERY safe in this community! Thanks again for the amazing trip! We will definitely be back! Joe and Mandi

There are not enough words to describe how amazing our trip to Iguana was. Jack and Patty were so generous and kind. The casita was exactly as described and we didn't want for a thing. The community is very special, with great restaurants and friendly people. The surf and sunsets are like nothing we have encountered in our previous travels. We stayed for two weeks and we didn't want to leave. We highly recommend!

I was born in San Diego, moved to Idaho in 1972, to work at Redfish Lake Lodge, with my husband, Jack. We sold the Lodge in 2000 and built our beach front home in Nicaragua in 2005.

I love walking the beach with my dog, Teo, yoga, making jewelry and quilting. We've traveled to Bali, Portugal, Brazil and Venezuela.
