Property Description

Villas Rio Dulce #9 has been the MOST POPULAR RENTAL with the highest occupancy rate in the Villas Rio Dulce condo building for the past 3 years.  It offers a cash flow positive turnkey operation with multi-year history of 200+ rental nights providing 8% annual ROI.

The reasons:

3 bedroom, 2 bath unit is on the 3rd floor and faces both the Rio Dulce river and the jungle on the opposite side. It’s also right in front of the world famous Colorados surf break.

Jungle views from the riverbed to the mountaintop! Not to mention a direct view of the Colorados surf break from your Master Bedroom window or the extremely private balcony.

A MEASURE OF PRIVACY is afforded that is not provided by most other units.

It has elevator or stairs access to its 3rd floor location.

It is an OUTSIDE, CORNER unit with only the jungle to the south and the Colorados surf break in front and to the west.

There is no foot traffic that looks into or constantly walks past your unit throughout the day!  The privacy is permanent as there will never be any construction within view along the entire length of the unit. This is due to the river being the south border of the property.

Begin and end each day in complete privacy, peace and quiet, after your busy & draining surfing adventures!

A CONSTANT off shore BREEZE from Lake Nicaragua to the east sweeps over the mountains and flows gently through the jungle facing windows that comprise the entire south length of the unit. This virtually eliminates the need for AC and allows you to enjoy a comfortable tropical fresh air feel throughout your stay! Feel free to use the AC that each room in the unit provides. However, since it is not necessary in this elevated & breezy unit, you can enjoy the tropical breezes that you came here for in the first place…..And remember the privacy!!!

A substantially UPGRADED AND CUSTOM FURNITURE package was acquired for our home! The standard builder package purchased by most unit owners does not compare! Most important are HIGH END PLUSH MATRESSES that guarantee a super comfortable sleep and rejuvenation after a full days pounding by the waves. This is of the highest priority for any surfer!

In addition, we have selected gallery quality driftwood pieces from the nearby beach and river bed as well as several Nicaraguan themed ‘Primitivista’ framed oils from Luis Alvarado. He is widely regarded as the country’s top artist in that genre. All in an effort to provide our home with a decorator’s touch and a ‘home away from home’ feel not typically associated with a vacation rental. The couch and chair cushions are brand new as of November 2012.

With our condo’s south, southeast orientation, the hot afternoon sun is not a factor with this unit. Unlike other units there is NO need to close the drapes to block out the sun, shut the windows and crank the AC during that time of day.

Our 3 bedroom can be configured as 1 king & 4 twins, 2 kings and 2 twins, or as 6 twins.

Our fully stocked kitchen has stainless steel refrigerator & stove. Coffee Maker, Microwave, blender, ice cube trays, and a complete array of cooking utensils, dishes and silverware, etc. A flat screen TV with Claro satellite, DVD, IPod dock stereo, and LIBRARY OF 1000+ MOVIES, various HBO & Showtime series, and over 3000 songs from various artists is also provided.

An ON-SITE MANAGER IN THE BUILDING to handle any type of short term needs and/or extra-curricular activities. Day trips could include: Area eco-tours, yoga, manicure, massage, Spanish language lessons, local musicians, fishing trips, mountain climbing, horseback riding, zip lines, volcano hikes, bike and motorcycle rentals, etc.

Hacienda Iguana is one of the top surfing venues in Nicaragua. Strong winds that originate from Lake Nicaragua to the east, flow over the mountains, and head offshore 330+ days a year, 24 hours a day!

Colorados is a now famous world class surf break. Panga Drops is a short 5 minute walk up the beach from there. Colorados is a fast, multi-peaked, barrelling beach break. Panga Drops is a tamer A-framing reef & rock break.

There are several other quality breaks in the area that we can arrange boats to. General amenities available include a private community beachside pool restaurant/bar/seating area for lounging, swimming and watching sunsets.
