This was our second time staying here and it was as great as the first time!

 

It is a perfect location right on the Colorados surf break where I could sit by the pool and watch my kids and husband surf!

 

The staff was amazing and took care of our every need. The catering is outstanding and you must do it!

From Huntington Beach July 10 2017 - July 14 2017

The house was amazing, it sits right in front of the breaks. There are plenty of rooms, and enough space for our party of seven. The private gated community is safe and has lots to offer. What really made the stay was the staff. We loved Martha and all of her meals. All of the meals were some of the best we have had. The rest of the staff was just as accommodating. We definitely plan to stay in this house again! Such an awesome trip. I highly recommend staying at this house and contacting Nica 365. Thank you for everything you did to make us feel at home!

This house is absolutely amazing. The house is right on the beach, in front of the surf break. Great surfing and nice long walks on the beach everyday! The house itself is beautiful. There are plenty of rooms, and enough space for our party of eight. The private gated community is safe and has lots to offer. What really made the stay was the staff. We loved Martha and all of her meals. She was attentive to our dietary restrictions, and after a long morning of surfing, her breakfasts were delicious.

Our stay at Altos Colorado was very memorable.. the property is clean/modern/and spacious. the location is definitely one of the best i've stayed in all my years of travels... the staff was attentive.. the Chef's cooking skills were spot on.. a few negatives here: no basic toiletries, no iron/ironing board, no hair dryer, no cable tv connection, nothing that ruins your vacation mood but does undermine it a bit.. overall, an amazing experience.....

From California March 16 2017 - March 25 2016

Everything was amazing! We booked the house for our honeymoon trip and we will for sure be back. The house was beautiful and it was right in front of the waves. The staff was amazing as well as the Owners.

 

We exchanged several emails ahead of time and everyone was super responsive and helpful. David helped to arrange transportation from Costa Rica and back. Once at the house David and Iain made contact with us immediately and made sure everything was going well. The staff at the house really made the trip. Cecilia, Lucia, and Roberto are THE BEST! We really enjoyed our time with them. They truly made our stay special.

 

The pictures are amazing, but it doesn't do this house justice. The layout is perfect and the sunsets from the 3rd story deck are priceless. We truly would not change a thing.

 

Thank you for helping to make our honeymoon so extremely special and beautiful! (We will be recommending this house to as many people as possible!)

We had the best time. It was such an amazing experience. David and Lain organized our transfer to and from the house. They also answered all questions we had while we were in the US. Once we arrived the were awesome. They set up massages for us daily and surf board rentals and private yoga instruction. We informed them before we got there that we would like to set up a private chef for our entire stay. The chef (Marta) was awesome. She was so sweet and she was an amazing chef. Fresh fruit, Fresh Fish, fresh juice every day. She cooked three meals a day for us. Top quality food. We were so grateful. We also had housekeeping services in the morning each day included. We came down with four couples and we all had our own rooms with King beds and bathrooms. Such an awesome trip. I highly recommend staying at this house and contacting Nica 365. Thank you Thank you,

From Toronto Canada February 08 2017 - February 16 2017

Our vacation was 10/10 from start to finish! I had a lot of questions for David and James before our trip and they answered everything promptly via email. It seemed to good to be true walking into the house at first. Then once I saw the amazing pool on the edge of the beautiful beach/ocean I thought... what did I do to deserve this? We all felt like royalty. The staff did an amazing job making our stay as comfortable as possible. The cleaning lady, cooks, pool guy and security were all so friendly and helpful. Our concierge, Iain was incredible. He hooked us up with anything we wanted. Surf boards, tee times at the golf course, massages on the pool deck(by a professional, not him) and a tour of the community. Such a good guy. And of course the beach is beautiful!! With sweet surf breaks right in front of the house. I need to go back!

SURF ROYALTY!!!

From Miami, FL (USA) June 20 2015 - June 27 2015

Nothing in Hacienda Iguyana compares to Altos De Colorado. Simply the best house on the best break! You will feel like "Surf Royalty". The house is very well done with privacy for everyone and a huge great room for coming together each evening to share tales of the day and to enjoy grilled lobster that the fish man will deliver to your door!

 

For the ladies in the group, we had Kimie come everyday to do a private yoga class for us on the beach front patio and the massage ladies from Rivas came every afternoon. We lounged on the 3rd floor sun deck and watched the surf action. Felt like being at the spa. the house keeper Lucia is wonderful!!! You have to know when it does not get any better!!!

From Placentia, CA (USA) June 20 2015 - June 27 2015

From previous reviews, I knew the house and trip would be amazing, but it exceeded our group's expectations. Altos de Colorado is an unbelievable beachfront house. Everything was top notch! From the beautiful house and pool, to the staff at the house from Nica365, we could not have asked for more.

 

David was there to make sure our needs and daily adventures were taken care of. We were able to do everything from surf/fishing trips and ATV adventures to Zip lining and tours of Granada. The wives were even able to set up massages at the house. Gabby's daily breakfast and dinner selections were amazing! Fresh fish, chicken, steak, squeezed juices.....I could go on and on!

 

Lucia and the rest of the staff took care of everything else we needed at the house. Surf at Colorados was amazing. You will not find a better beach break anywhere else in Nica. All of the kids (ages 6-13) cannot stop talking about how much fun they had. I would make this an annual trip! Thank you for making our family vacation one to remember.

Simply Heaven!

From West Vancouver, BC (Canada) December 20 2014 - December 27 2014

Everything you could wish for - gorgeous setting right on the beautiful sandy beach, spacious, incredible staff, and wonderful catering team! My husband and I took our adult children and their significant others as a Christmas gift and had one of the most memorable holidays ever - and we travel a lot! This home is exactly as described in the listing, and I would even go further and say that in actual fact, words can't really describe this heaven on earth!

 

The owners, and Nicaragua365 team were extremely accommodating and bent over backwards to make this a trip for the record books. We loved waking up in the morning, having coffee or tea on one of the decks or patios, walking the long stretch of sandy beach, having a dip in the pool, or a morning surf, and then coming in to a sumptuous brunch all beautifully prepared in local tradition.

 

The N365 team arranged transportation to and from the airport, and gave us a tour of a few local sites. Stunning scenery abounds in Nicaragua and there is no shortage of things to do or excursions to embark on. I'm almost hesitant to write this review as I kind of want to keep this hidden gem hidden - actually, it's already too late! We had minor issues with Wifi, and a bit of a problem with the fridge, but the management team did everything possible to rectify these. We would definitely return and have already recommended this amazing vacation home to family as well as guests at a subsequent resort we visited!

The Sweet Spot!

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Charlotte, NC (USA) June 07 2014 - June 14 2014

Surfer's paradise!!! Imagine a wave that barrels almost everyday, breaks on sand, in warm water, and is uncrowded. This is Playa de Colorado. Even if you don't surf, just waking up to watch the daily surfer talent is a joy. The pictures give you just a glimpse of the stunning, luscious beach and surroundings.

 

The house itself is exactly as described: modern, clean, well-planned. The views and the pool can't be beat. The bedding is the best I have experienced in Central America. No rough, short sheets, bad mattresses, or limping air conditioner here. We also opted for the catering and we very well-fed. Dona Marta and Andrea prepared various breakfast options with gallo pinto (yummy local rice and beans) and fresh fruit and juice daily. Dinner was more "Americanized." In general, Nicaraguan food is a little spicier and more flavorful than that of Costa Rica. Another major plus of catering is eliminating trips to the store.

 

Unless you truly do not want to leave the house and those amazing waves, you will need a vehicle. You are 30 minutes from Tola and 45 minutes from Rivas. The road from Tola is slowly being paved, leaving only about 15 minutes of unpaved road. If you are arriving after dark, consider renting a car and arranging with the staff to follow someone in from the airport or at least from Rivas as the roads are not well-lit or marked.

 

If you are not into surfing, this is still a great vacation spot to truly get off the grid and relax in paradise. We did day trips to Granada and Ometepe. Granada was interesting and David Jaen played guide and kept us well-informed and laughing. Ometepe left me wishing I had more than a day to actually hike a volcano or try a petroglyph tour from Hari's Horses. So, plan for an overnight in Ometepe if you want more than just a preview.

 

I couldn't help but falling in love with Nicaragua. It is a step back in time, full of verdant fields and dirt roads roaming with people, chickens and pigs. The poverty will break your heart, but the people are so gracious, helpful, friendly, and proud that you will be glad you spent your money in this amazing and stunning country. I can't wait to go back!!

From New York City, NY March 12 2014 - March 19 2014

This house is perfectly laid out for a group of 10. All the amenities were probably the best on the block!!! The property is very well taken care of and situated perfectly in front of two surf breaks, left and right. Perfect for the lazy surfer that doesn't want to spend the entire day paddling out. The wi-fi connection was set up upstairs so it was a little difficult to get a connection downstairs. As we spent most of our time on the patio downstairs and by the pool, we moved the receiver downstairs and had no problems getting the connection downstairs after that. Although the mosquito screens are very functional and useful, they are fragile and a little hard to see, especially with such a mesmerizing view. Our group opted to have the week catered. It made it a lot easier for us as the supermarket is a little out the way. Our chef Marta did a wonderful job feeding us including the two vegetarians that were in our group. The food was fresh and made with lots of love. Although, if you do not like spicy, make sure you let them know as she likes to use jalepenos. She is super sweet and extremely accomodating. We had two birthdays and they were able to get two cakes delivered to us!!! The staff was very attentive to all our requests. They helped arrange transportation to get around, the drivers were great and extemely helpful. Jorge had no problems making multiple bathroom stops to and from the airport.

 

Our overall experience was wonderful and seamless. We didn't go a day with wanting or needing anything that wasn't provided already and all our requests were met efficiently. I would put my safety and needs in the hands of this well rounded staff any week of the year.

Great house, great location, fabulous food, terrific staff, friendly locals. This was a perfect get-away with great surfing, horseback riding in the surf brought right to your door.

 

The house is very well laid out for view and privacy. The pool is perfect and I don't usually enjoy pools, but this was clean and had a view of the surf. All in all the staff were perhaps the best we've seen anywhere - James, David, Maria, Mauricio are outstanding and measure up to 5 star hotel quality service. Cecilia was incredibly attentive to our groups needs and adapted quickly to only serve things we loved. This is rare and made our trip amazing :)

Staying at the best house on the beach will make you almost giddy - a feeling that lasts your entire vacation!

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Seattle, USA February 15 2014 - February 22 2014

There is no way to prepare yourself for the goose bumps you will get the when you walk through the front doors of this house. The pictures online cannot do Altos de Colorado justice. And then, after that amazing first glimpse, your vacation will only better! The design of the house is very well thought-out. The bedrooms are on the ground floor and stay cooler at night while the living space/kitchen are upstairs so that all can enjoy an elevated view of the surf with their morning coffee. The surfing was awesome: sometimes the break was right in front of the house, sometimes it was at the Panga Drops, about 1/3 a mile up the beach. The infinity pool is gorgeous and very well-maintained.

 

A few pleasant surprises: -This house comes with an excellent staff: housekeeper, security guard, and daily pool cleaner. So disregard any blog posts you read about safety and petty theft in Nica. Thank you to Maria for offering fresh towels daily and keeping the kitchen so clean despite our countless blender creations.

 

-There is a great beach bar and restaurant 5 houses down

 

-The 1.3 mile stretch of beach is pristine, in part because it is difficult for outsiders to access on foot

 

-The 'house manager' should really be called a personal concierge. James helped us arrange boat trips, surf board rental, transport to and from the airport, and catering by Marta. He coordinated with us over email prior to our trip and offered lots of advise for travelling in Nicaragua.

 

-Staying at the best house on the beach will make you almost giddy - a feeling that lasts your entire vacation.

 

The neighborhood this house is in, Hacidena Iguana, is pretty cool too. I felt like I was in a nice resort because I could stumble to the beach bar, golf with the monkeys & iguanas, or purchase sundries at their small market. Be sure to travel outside of the development if you want to experience the native scene.

We rented this house for a few days in March. To keeps things short, the house was amazing. It was exactly as pictured (even better if that is possible). There is an excellent surf break right in front where we would paddle out multiple times each day. When we weren't surfing, we were relaxing in the infinity pool and listening to music via the outdoor sound system. I would highly recommend!
