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 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

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

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

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

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!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

From Huntington Beach, CA August 06 2016 - August 13 2016

We had a wonder vacation in this home. David was a delight to work with and made this the easiest vacation I've ever had. Four of us went to Ometepe , Granada and were lucky enough to view Masaya a true wonder of the world, before we arrived. Our ride was waiting for us at the ferry, and he was the fastest driver we have ever had, just glad Jorge wasn't driving a Porsche! When we arrived at the house and met up with the others, dinner was waiting with amazing drinks. Cecilia is amazing, we choose not to ever go out for a meal, because she was such a good cook, go with the meal plan, well worth the price. David was available by phone or text 24/7, he made a sailing trip happen on short notice and provided a driver for us to go horseback ridding at Rancho Chilamate, well worth the drive, so beautiful highly recommend. As others mentioned it isn't easy to get around Nicaragua, everything is a drive, but such a beautiful place to see and explore. We went for ice cream everyday and went to the restraint at the end of the beach for drinks. But we had the best of everything at the house. The boys surfed everyday and golfed some and really liked the course. Juanita kept the house very clean and did our laundry every day! Few FYI's: the house doesn't have shampoo or a blower. The bedrooms, which are beautiful, have air conditioning but the living room, dinning and kitchen does not, I felt sorry for wonderful Cecilia working in that kitchen. There are not many ATM's near, the one by the store and ice cream shop was always out of cash. Every one takes dollars and most prices are in US dollars, so just bring enough, since you are tipping and most restaurants and the grocery store in Iguana take cash only. Don't miss the Nic rum, really good! We loved the house dog and cat (even though we weren't suppose to feed them....) But this is a hard thing about poor countries. Nicaragua is very clean and the people have a great pride, we loved this country and we are already planning next years trip back and think we will need to rent two house from David, the rest of the family and friends want to come! Thank you again David for making this a special week.

From Montreal, Canada March 10 2016 - March 14 2016

The house/villa is just so beautiful and perfect. It looks even better in real life than on the pictures. A real southern dream. The view on the ocean is outstanding. House is meticulously cleaned every day by Juanita who is also a great cook and just a marvellous person. We couldn't not ask for a better service. We were taken care of from the arrival till the departure. David and his team are just great! Open to any requests and helpful in any way possible.


We loved every second of our stay in this beautiful villa. I would recommend this place to all my friends looking for a special, luxurious get away right in front of the ocean with an endless, almost "all yours" beach. It was definitely an unforgettable experience.


The common area of the house is very spacious and open, but all the bedrooms are very cozy and private. We travel a lot and saw and stayed in lot of beautiful places, this one is definitely will be a memorable one. I would return here in a heartbeat.

Awesome house in front of Panga Drops

From NY, USA February 13 2016 - February 20 2016

The house was fantastic and the staff was great. We can't wait to go back.


All the bedrooms have sliding glass doors and the 2 beachfront ones have a perfect view of the ocean. All the bedrooms had a/c but honestly we slept with the glass doors open and a nice breeze all week. Waking up to the sound of the ocean every morning was fantastic.

One of my all time favorite vacations.

From Carlsbad, CA November 07 2015 - November 14 2015

This ranks as one of my all time favorite vacations. I thought the house looked amazing before we got there when looking on the computer. Turns out it was even better!


Property Manger: David -10 son got an injury while surfing. David picked us up in 15 minutes, took us to the clinic and made me feel like I was right at home.


Chef: Celia- 10 stars. Fresh homemade juices every single day and delicious Nicaraguan meals. I'm a foodie and I was extremely pleased. I wish she came back with me.


Cooking/Cleaning: Juanita- 10 stars. Like a ninja cleaning lady who would clean everything when you weren't looking. I wish she came back with me too.


I'm reluctantly posting this because I don't want this place to be discovered but also want to give some credit where credit is definitely due.


Thank you everyone for such an incredible week.
