This villa includes A/C in the bedrooms, Wi-Fi throughout, Smart TV in the living room, and all of the creature comforts from home to make your vacation more enjoyable. Please note that this home does not include a back-up power source.

In the classic colonial style, Casa Encanto's first-floor living and dining spaces open up to a spacious verandah, with a swimming pool and the beach mere steps away. Lounge in the hammock while a cook prepares your meal in the fully equipped kitchen, or eat a freshly grilled meal at the outdoor dining table.

Located on the 1st floor are two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and can be set up as king beds or 2 twin beds.

The 2nd floor contains the primary bedroom equipped with a king bed, en-suite bathroom and breathtaking views of the ocean.

For large groups, space is added to this rental property with the addition of the detached casita that is on-site but separate from the main house. This casita contains 2 ensuite bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with 4 twin-sizes beds that can be converted into 2 king beds.

Daily cleaning service is included, and an optional meal plan providing three delicious and freshly prepared meals per day is also available upon request. Each property comes equipped with a safe for your valuables.

Encantos unveils mesmerizing beach and ocean vistas, creating an ambiance of serenity and grandeur, perfect for your next vacation.


This home is located within the Hacienda Iguana development, which is known for its world-class surf breaks. There are 4 surf breaks within walking distance- Playa Colorado, Panga Drops and Los Perros are in the neighborhood and Playa Amarillo is to the south of Playa Colorado (walkable at low tide). We also have a beautiful 9-hole golf course. The course is well designed, beautifully maintained and very affordable to guests.

We would be pleased to arrange airport transfers or a variety of other tours, activities and excursions for you before or during your stay:

- Private and group yoga classes

- Surf lessons and guided surf trips

- Boat and fishing charters

- Massage and spa treatments

- Hot springs

- Horseback riding

- Local community tours

Food supplies:

The best place to get groceries is La Colonia in Rivas, 100m south of the turn off for Tola on the right (west) side of the street. (While in Rivas, you should also top off your fuel because these are the closest gas stations to where you are staying). We HIGHLY recommend stocking up on all or as many of the groceries you will need for your entire stay OR if you don’t want to deal with planning, shopping, and preparing meals ask us about booking the meal plan, our full service catering option.

Eating out:

There are several great food options within the Hacienda Iguana development. The most visited and only beachfront option is Pili's Kitchen, located at the Beach Club in front of the Colorado Break. It offers a variety of fresh foods, juices, smoothies and full bar. In La Joya next to the Eco Casitas is The Salty Koala, serving up amazing Asian cuisine and craft cocktails. In the commercial zone of the development (where NSR is located) you will find the rest of the culinary options. Above our office is the legendary Casa Ananas, which offers authentic Italian cuisine, pizza and daily international special nights. Next to our office/surf shop you'll find Downtown Iguana, which offers seafood and authentic Nicaraguan cuisine at a fair price. Across the street you'll find Scoops and Spokes, which serves up some amazing homemade ice cream, good coffee, baked goods, paninis and fresh juices. A few doors down is the Iguana Brewery, offering sports bar fare and local craft beer.

Other spots and restaurants in the general area (but outside the Hacienda Iguana development) that are worth checking out are: Gigante (El Pozo, Juntos and Giant’s Foot Surf Camp for Burger Night every Monday), Rancho Santana (The Club House, La Boquita tapas restaurant and La Taquería -ask us how to get to la Taquería walking from Iguana) Limón 1 (Avila’s taquería), Limón 2 (La Calabria brick oven pizza), Jiquelite-Playa Santana (Malibu Popoyo, Buena Onda, Costa Oeste, Aloha Bungalows) Popoyo (Mag Rock, Café con Leche), Las Salinas (Todo con Amor restaurant) Guasacate (Finca Wayuu, Dutchy's Deli, Viento Este) and many more!


We have a well merchandised store (NSR Surf Shop) located inside the Hacienda Iguana development, which offers souvenirs, surf accessories, clothing, beach towels, flip flops, sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuits, wet suit vests and tops, rash guards and more! We also rent scooters, dirt bikes, surfboards, boogie boards and SUPs out of this location as well.

Other businesses in the Hacienda Iguana community include Pure Spa, 2 small convenience stores with a variety of grocery items, and an ATM is located on the property. Other activities in the development include yoga, horseback riding and in-home massage.

The Riviera commercial plaza is located within a half mile of the Hacienda Iguana entrance. Businesses in this shopping center include BAC bank with ATM machine, a small grocery store (with the basics) and Bagels and Bakes, a cafe with daily home-baked goods and coffee.

Getting Around:

This property is located a 2-2.5 hours drive from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua, and approximately 4 hours from the Liberia airport in Costa Rica. Most of the major vehicle rental agencies have locations at the Managua airport (we recommend you make a reservation in advance).
If renting a vehicle, we feel its only necessary to have a 4wd if planning to travel to some of the beaches further south (in the San Juan del Sur area). If one prefers not to rent a vehicle, we can arrange airport transportation and daily sightseeing/surf trips. We have motorcycle and scooter rentals available and we can also arrange vehicle and boat transport to other surf breaks in the area. There is also the option of renting a vehicle from Alamo and National, which has an office next to Hacienda Iguana.
