Upon arrival we were immediately enchanted by the cared for look and laid back vibe of Hacienda Iguana's grounds. The golf course has been thoughtfully designed and is well maintained, the beach is spectacular and the waves incredible for surfing, body surfing and swimming. Then there is the beach club pool which served as an excellent wading pool for our 2 year old but beware, the Club House's food was inedible and exorbitantly priced... the only let down we experienced.
When discussing the accommodations at Hacienda Iguana, the first thing to say is that not all condos are equal. There are numerous different developments within the Hacienda Iguana gated-community including Iguana Villas, Golf Condos, Golf Townhouses, Rio Dulce Villas and privately owned residences. All appear to be independently owned and managed. Some owners care more than others do about their property which translates into vastly different interiors and vibes. Moreover, some property managers do a far better job at managing the property than others. My husband, daughter and I stayed at Colorado Surf Condo owned by Maggie and managed by Seth and Lindsey. This condo is an example of owners who care and property managers who know how to do their job well. FYI, this condo is located in the development called, Rio Dulce Villas and is advertised on the web using the name 'Colorado Surf Condo'.
Maggie, has done a great job furnishing the 2-bed/2-bath condo in an elegant yet comfortable manner. It did not feel like a vacation rental in the typical sense but rather a stylish apartment where we were able to cook for ourselves and revitalize after a grueling day of swimming, golfing and general sight seeing. The condo is located on the ground floor so the porch seamlessly blends with the manicured garden in front which in turn morphs into a golf practice area which in turn meets the white sands of Colorado beach!!! Amazingly beautiful!!
All in all, we had a GREAT time and are now even considering purchasing a property within the community... a true testament to how much we enjoyed our visit! Thank you Maggie for all of your help in arranging our getaway and congratulations on your vision. We'll be back!
