From Tennessee October 06 2017 - October 14 2017

Wow is all I can say. David and Iain went out of there way to make sure our trip was awesome. The tropical storm had hit two days prior to our arrival and did significant damage to the home we were supposed to stay in. But the guys at Nica365 moved us to an available house and it was awesome. The food, service, and surf were top notch. Although our group was not big surfers, learning and getting out in those waves was awesome. And sitting in infinity pool watching the really good surfers while drinking Tona's and cocktails made from the fresh juice better way to spend the afternoon.


We have rented over 30 houses all over the world and this ranks near the top if not at the top. Can't wait to retrun.

From Orange County, California August 11 2017 - August 19 2017

This was my second trip to Nicaragua and it was as good as the first. Loved the eco tour at Mombacho which I didn't do last time. Great food, amazing scenery and friendly people always make for a great trip.


  The house was a perfect setup for the 4 couples on our trip.


  James, David, Zack, Ian, Jorge were all top notch. Professional and friendly the entire time. I never felt like I didn't know what was going on at any point. The team made for a seamless trip including food, transportation and activities.


 I'll surely be back!!

Perfect Vacation

From Washington DC, USA April 15 2017 - April 22 2017

We spent an amazing week in NICA, there were 12 of us, 4 adults and 8 kids. The house was beautiful, well maintained, with a great afternoon shaded pool that was a nice size. We felt very safe at Iguana.


The staff at N365 were great, from David quickly responding to our emails to Iain arraigning all the activities from spa massages, board rentals, and surf lessons. He also arranged rides to visit a local school, where the kids brought soccer gear to give out to the school kids, then topped it off with a soccer match. Janet and Gabriel also did an amazing jobs, the food was excellent and the fresh juices tasted so good. The house was clean thoroughly each day, even with 8 kids in the house.


Another great plus was Juan the surf instructor. We arranged to have Juan there for each day. He was absolutely amazing. Everyone stood up by weeks end, and he even took my 14 year out to Panga and surfed with him multiple times.


Overall it was a 5 star experience, we plan to return again.

Living large in Nicaragua

From Brooklyn NY February 20 2017 - February 26 2017

I've been to Nicaragua many times over the past 12 years but have never stayed in such a luxurious location / accommodations. We treated ourselves this time and it was worth it! The house is really gorgeous and beautifully maintained. The upper and lower deck overlook the pool and out onto the Panga Drops surf break. The beach is about 1.5 miles long. Water was warm even in Feb. Waves were great. We got massages, had surf lessons, went on a day long boat trip to San Juan. Went swimming every day and basically just enjoyed the sun, sand, waves, sunsets and amazing stars. One person got stung by a stingray though - so watch out for them.


The staff was fantastic. David and team organized everything for us. We weren't sure about the catering but were very glad that we decided to do it as it made it truly relaxing to not have to worry about shopping, meal planning, cooking and cleaning for a big group. Cecilia was a great cook too. Shopping for incidentals at the gringo grocery is expensive though. Bring your own nutella!


We'll be back next year.

From Atllanta, Georgia (USA) August 13 2016 - August 20 2016

We have been to Nicaragua many times in the past and stayed at different type of places BUT this was by far the best accommodations. We had everything we needed. the service was better than any Resort you can stay in. The Ladies were wonderful!!! Gaby was very friendly and Boy did she keep the place clean!! Martha and her helper were ABSOLUTELY magnificent.


We were not going to do the catering in the beginning BUT we are thankful we did. The food was cooked to perfection. David was very helpful, helped to arrange activities with ease. We had a group of 11 (8 adults and 3 children) and the pool came in very handy not to mention the beach is just a few feet away. If you like to surf this is the place for you. The beach and waves are awesome. We are considering going back and have recommended this to several of our friends and family.

Paradise for surfers and families

Rating starRating starRating starRating starRating star

From Oxnard, CA (USA) July 16 2016 - July 23 2016

Our group of 11 (2 grandparents + 2 kids with spouses + 4 grandkids + surfing cousin) found this house perfect for our annual family trip and is now our favorite.


The house is new and has been designed and furnished with exquisite taste. The pool is always inviting if you don't want to walk 25 ft to the shady hammock or 75 ft to the breaking waves. The beach is over a mile long and friendly to kids but with 3 challenging surf breaks, a steady offshore breeze attracting surfers from around the world yet still very uncrowded. Amenities are appropriate for a relatively new beach development/resort and given current construction in and future plans, Hacienda Iguana will offer even more options for dining and shopping in the future. Don't miss Pili's Kitchen on the beach for sunset dinner, Anana's for a cold drink or Spokes and Scoops for ice cream or smoothie. We didn't get a chance to play on the golf course, rent bikes or enjoy a massage, but its nice to know they were available.


Outside of the upscale gated community of Hacienda Iguana, we found Nicaragua is still a poor country, with amenities and prices about 20 years behind Costa Rica. The people we encountered were always friendly and as helpful as our language differences allowed. Don't bother changing money at the airport cambio since prices in most restaurants and shops are posted in US dollars which are accepted everywhere, but with change sometimes in Nicaraguan Cordobas.


Gabriela, our full time housekeeper, was a gem, able to keep the house cleaner than ours back home despite 4 very active kids. David the local manager for Nicaragua365 was easily available, knowledgeable about local attractions and able to arrange transportation to airport and local attractions via new Toyota Hiace vans with courteous drivers. Larry's "Gardener's Reward" was definitely a reward for all of us making the trip to this little corner of paradise.
