Southern Dream is a landmark beachfront villa located right at the Panga Drops surf break in the Hacienda Iguana resort.
  • $500/nt for up to 6
  • $50/person/nt extras to max 8
  • All inclusive packages available
The home has 4 spacious bedrooms; two ensuite masters upstairs and two additional bedrooms downstairs with a shared bathroom. Floor to ceiling glass fronted atrium style living room with soaring ceilings and picture perfect panoramas. The vistas don't stop there - wherever you are in the house sunsets, sunrises, crashing waves and mountain views follow!

Four bedrooms, private pool, right at the break!

This home was designed to be flexible and each of the four bedrooms includes a converting King/twin bed. Each bedroom has either a pair of twin beds or a king bed, making this property ideal for 8 single travelers, or 4 couples. The beds have specially imported twin XL mattresses (same as those used in college dorms), meaning they are comfortable for adults to sleep in. Southern Dream has an enviable location on the surf break; staying here, you'll be first out to the line-up and catching waves long before anyone else arrives. Colorados beach break is five minutes walk along the beach. The beachfront pool makes for the ideal spectator spot to watch your loved ones surf, let the kids play or take a dip and wash away the wipeouts after a long surf session. You're sure to enjoy the tropical gardens which are a magnet for butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife. Guests will feel wonderfully safe & relaxed here as Southern Dream. Juanita, the housekeeper, is a friendly yet discreet presence working hard in the background to keep the house spotless. There's also a gardener who drops by daily to keep the pool sparkling and the outdoor areas tidy. Although a safe place, to keep it that way and for your complete peace of mind there's also a night watchman - this is a big convenience allowing guests to come and go as they please without the need for tedious locking up each time you go out.

As well as world class, year round surfing the area is great for nature lovers and the adventurous at heart. Activities in the local area include ATV tours, rappelling, hiking, fishing / spear fishing, horseback riding and much more. Hacienda Iguana in which the house is located benefits from a challenging 9-hole golf course where you are likely to see monkeys and other exciting wildlife including sloths, skunks and myriad brightly colored butterflies. There are two restaurants in the resort and several good eateries within 20 minutes drive. For groups of four or more we can organize in house catering. Southern Dream is well located for day trips to nearby Granada & Ometepe. Our house manager and concierge are on hand 24/7 to help guests line up airport shuttles, activities & excursions. Get in touch now and let us help you plan the ultimate Nicaraguan getaway!

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

One of our favorite vacations of all time!

From Bethesda, MD April 16 2017 - April 22 2017

This was our 1st time visiting Nicaragua. Our family of 5 shared Southern Dream with another family of 5 during Spring Break. It was perfect! The house was a great set up for two couples upstairs and the kids sharing the rooms and bathroom on the main level. The house was just as beautiful as it looks online. We traveled with 2 other families that shared the house next door. Our cook was awesome! All four families gathered at Southern Dream for dinner each night. It was such a great set up for our large group. We would highly recommend Staying at Southern Dream, hiring the chef and working with Nicaragua 365. David, Ian and James were very accommodating throughout the entire planning process and all the way through the vacation.Truly one of our favorite vacations! We were all so sad to leave. We look forward to returning again !

From Washington, DC March 27 2017 - April 03 2017

We had a WONDERFUL time at the Southern Dreams house in Iguana at the end of March. Everything was spectatular. The house is modern, clean, beautiful and immediately on the beach. We have never seen more beautiful sunsets. The staff was also terrific. Yaneth cooked excellent food (we especially loved her breakfast burritos!). We were able to arrange massages, surf lessons and a fishing trip. They also helped us rent a car to explore on our own and when our 6 year old injured his foot on the beach, they drove us to the emergency clinic immediately. Above and beyond! This location remains somewhat remote. It is a minimum 2.5 hour drive from the Managua airport. But it is well worth it! And while we did take a day to drive around and explore, you would really never need to leave this amazing house. We can't wait to come back!

From Virginia Beach, Virginia January 10 2017 - January 17 2017

Had a great time staying here with our group. The home was great and sits right on Panga Drops, relaxing by the pool watching waves come in while having a beverage was a big pastime for our group. Ian, the main contact for our group, was always available and helped our group with any and everything we needed. The whole staff was great and the food was incredible. Cecillia always had a great meal ready for us and I would highly encourage you to explore the food package. Well worth it and will request both of them the next time we go back.

Single greatest vacation we have ever had as a family

From Glencoe, Illinois December 18 2016 - December 24 2016

People kept asking us why Nicaragua...we didn't know the real answer until after the week at this house. Everything was spectacular...the views, the people, the food and the surf. If you need to unplug from civilization, go to the end of the world and chillax!! David and his team were wonderful. Giselle served us food that was unique and special to Nicaragua. The day trips (zip line, hiking, hanging out at resorts) were special, but nothing was as special than everything that happens in the late afternoon!! Watching the surfers and drinking cold beer topped off everyday. We can't wait to return...and this time we will all brush up on our Spanish!!

Life Changing Trip

From Chicago, IL (USA) December 17 2016 - December 24 2016

What an amazing trip...


The house is beautiful, right on the beach with amazing waves... we surfed, and watched the real surfers... David acted as a concierge helping us plan all elements and Iain coordinated our on the ground support.


Every day we had great activities including ATV rides, zip lining, afternoon in Granada, etc. When we weren't on an excursion, we are all hanging out at the house, relaxing in the sun or shade, riding the waves, dipping in the pool, walking on the beach.


Gizelle is an amazing cook and we sat down to great meals, all eight of us around the table. There was something for everyone and great food... I still need to get the recipes! Juanita kept the house immaculate. It was way better than staying in a hotel.


I'd recommend it to anyone!

Luxurious Escape

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From San Diego, California (USA) September 03 2016 - September 09 2016

I have traveled quite a bit of the world and never have we experienced such personalized service. Not only is this home exquisite with a prime location on a pristine beach, the staff is 5 stars and the concierge service is second to none.


We went so our husbands could surf and found a resort playground for the wives. Massage and horses delivered to the house, personalized tours to experience the country, and the most amazing housekeeping ever. 3 days in my husband asked me if they were washing his clothes as they were all mysteriously clean. They were!


David and James did an amazing job fulfilling my every whim and doing it with a first class touch. We even had a misconnection on our flights with our friends. A quick email and David made arrangements to pick them up at a later time.


When we arrived at the house it was stocked with everything we requested and Cecelia had the most amazing appetizers waiting for us. Please understand, I not only am a foodie but I work in the food industry around some of the best chefs in the world. Cecelia is right there with the best! She prepared beautiful balanced breakfasts at any requested time every day (request the Pitaya juice!) One day when we decided to be lazy she grilled a beautiful pork tenderloin for lunch. And dinner....dinner was always a gourmet treat. One evening she seared off a center cut beef tenderloin perfectly medium rare. It was beautiful and a great display of her culinary expertise. Cecelia we miss you every day!


For surfers, Panga drops is directly in front of the house and is always good. Colorados down the beach is excellent as well but crowded. Definitely go to Pilis for the watermelon're welcome. NSR surf shop delivered and picked up our boards from the house so they were waiting for us upon arrival.


I organize trips around the world for myself and a group of friends. This was by far the easiest process with the most glowing results I have experienced yet. The house is amazing, the service makes it even better. Bravo N365!
