From Los Angeles (California), United States December 28 2018 - January 04 2019

David helped us with everything we needed, booking transport, arranging chef, surf board rental, etc. Despite the travel warnings, we felt completely safe the entire trip. Never hesitated to let our kiddos explore the beach on their own. The house is spacious, clean, well stocked and has a perfect view of Panga drop so when your done surfing, you can kick back with a Toña and enjoy the show. The set up is really comfortable, outdoor shower, surf rack, lots of place to lounge and sneak a nap. We loved playing ping pong and cooling off in the plunge pool.

 

We really enjoyed witnessing the tides rise and fall and the personality of the beach change with the swell, wind, light. The sunsets are stunning. Warm starry nights hanging on the patio, playing backgammon, listening to the waves. It really is magic. A/C and comfortable beds ensure a good night sleep. We also fell in love with Pili’s Kitchen which you can easily walk to at the south side of the bay. Pili’s food is seriously delicious (try the shrimp burger and the ice cream with homemade granola.) Pili, the owner, is warm and friendly and makes you feel right at home. Her set up is pretty choice too; hammocks, plunge pool, bar, volleyball, shady palapa for happy hour. Perfect place to watch the sunset with the neighborhood if your into that sorta thing ;) Also worth a mention, Scoops and spokes “in town” has amazing ice cream totally worth a stop (or two.)

 

So basically it’s great...Book it and go!!

Can't say enough about the place

 

From the inquiry to leaving we were stoked to stay at the place

 

The guys were great to line up details, shuttles, any other inquiries yet having the surf break in front of the place made it too easy to just watch one of our buddies get waves from the lounge area or pool

 

Juanita and crew were great also!

 

Look forward to staying here again, thanks

From New Jersey, USA May 12 2018 - May 17 2018

This modern estate in the Hacienda Iguana property fronts the surf break known as Panga Drops. From the front porch, of the first or second floor, you can watch the waves of Pangas reeling towards the beach. The staff was gracious and warm. Special thanks go to Maria for cooking traditional and American meals. Delicious!! Juanita kept the house clean and ready for fun. Gracias Amigas!! The property was additionally staffed by a very helpful concierge, Iain, who was immediately responsive to our requests. The pool was cleaned daily, and the security staff were unobtrusive, yet vigilant. The great room of the house is unforgetable. The giant 20 foot high ceilings, cooled by giant ceiling fans, was a tremendous first impression. This room also housed the dining area, the TV viewing area, and wrap-around sliding glass doors that allowed a view of the surf from anywhere in the room. Amazing!! Of the 4 bedrooms, 2 faced the ocean with great views. All were well appointed with soft linens, and decorated in a blend of traditional and modern. The outdoor veranda fronting the ocean is where we spent most of our time. We lounged, with coffee or beers dpending on the time of day, gazing out towards the surf. There is a variety of seating options outdoors: chaise lounges, hammock, table and chairs, and comfy sofa with otttomans. There were many afternoon siestas. Along side the veranda, covered from the sun and prtected from the wind resides an outdoor top-notch ping pong table, including quality rackets and balls. Good way to wind down after a surf. Get a golf cart and you can zip around the Iguana property and sample their facilities which include many restaurants. I recommend Pili's! There is a 9-hole golf course, a mini-market, and a surf shop, amoung others.

Incredible house right on Panga Drops

From New York, NY April 27 2018 - May 01 2018

My friends and I take a surf trip every year. Southern Dream was easily the best surf house we’ve ever rented. Clean, great design, right on Panga Drops. It’s amazing. David and Ian were super on point and arrangements were all very easy to make. The food was also great. I would recommend a trip to Southern Dream without any reservation. A great place.

From New York April 07 2018 - April 13 2018

Everything about the trip was perfect. The house itself was beautiful and a perfect spot for a pack of surfers.

 

Amazing layout, views, gardens, etc. You could literally check the Panga Drops surf from your bedroom and be the first ones on it every day.

 

David and Ian did an amazing job coordinating everything for us from rides to/from the airport, getting us a golf cart, booking massages, checking in, etc.

 

The whole house was meticulously cleaned every day throughout the entire week... sheets changed daily, pool cleaned, gardens manicured...

 

We opted for the chef for the week and were not disappointed. All meals, coffee, snacks, were taken care of so our only worry was when our next surf would be and what to drink for the sunset over the ocean in our front yard.

 

Highly recommend this piece of property and my only recommendation would be to wait until your kids are a little older if you are looking to bring them here. No railings on the steps, high balconies, etc would not have worked well with my little guy!

From San Diego, CA August 03 2017 - August 10 2017

Wow! Our entire group was blown away with how amazing this house was. Perfect location right on the sand, incredible service from the Nicaragua 365 crew and all the perfect waves you could surf!! Even the pool was shaded by a tree in the afternoon so it didn't get to hot.....definitely plan to return!

Gorgeous Home

From California July 02 2017 - July 09 2017

Southern Dream is the Perfect home for a luxury surfing vacation or an off the beaten path family beach adventure. The front path stops at the paddle out point for Panga Drops, and is a short walk away from Colorados, two of Nicaragua's best breaks. Combine that with The outstanding cook and the housekeeper, and it's a Dream week! From the start to the finish, Nicaragua 365 glides you through the rental process and is extremely attentive to all the details. The house is gorgeous! Bob

From Longwood, Florida May 25 2017 - June 06 2017

One of the best vacation homes I have ever stayed in. The service was amazing and we felt totally secure on the grounds. The waves were continuous and the wind was offshore 99% of the time. Ian was an amazing concierge and the home was impeccable! Fresh seafood was plentiful. The only convenience missing was air condition for the main space of the home. However, the bedrooms do have great ac and did provide solace at night from the heat. 2 thumbs up!!

From NC USA May 25 2017 - June 07 2017

My experience was ideal from the very start. David and James were incredibly accommodating, timely, and helpful. Ian, who tends to day to day needs, was always in touch with us, helping and getting anything we wanted. Juanita kept the home clean, every day, and was a joy to be around. The home itself is located in an exceptional area. The surf was great, local food delicious, and amenities all enjoyable. The home is fully equipped with anything you might need, and if something is missing, the whole staff moves quickly to satisfy. We learned that in Nicaragua power is a major expense. So, while the AC in the sleeping quarters works perfectly, it does take a few days to get used to the temp elsewhere in the home as it is very hot. Literally, the only suggestion I would make for this home would be to install 1-2 more AC units in the main living area, then charge the guests extra, should they elect to use it. I would have definitely paid a premium. For those reading, please note, I am nitpicking here as this place, and the entire team, were all wonderful. I would definitely recommend this home and using Nicaragua365 for your planning. We'll be back. Jake
