View from te upstairs deck

The Beach House is a two-story, open air design with 5 bedrooms and 3 bath. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs which are all equipped with air conditioning, fans, and views of the ocean or estuary. Comfortable Queen beds are in each of the upstairs rooms and there are shelves for clothes and places to store your surfboards and equipment. Of the 3 upstairs bedrooms, two share a fully equipped bathroom with a spacious shower. The third bedroom upstairs is a Master, with its own bathroom and shower attached. The rooms all face out onto a massive upper deck and has cozy wrap around couches, day beds, and several hammocks to lounge in and watch the surf between sessions. 


The lower level has the remaining 2 bedrooms, both with 2 twin beds in each. The rooms stay much cooler in the day and have fans for each individual bed. There is also storage and shelves in each room to put your personal items.  The windows look out towards the ocean and you fall asleep to the sound of waves every night. The downstairs has one full, big bathroom that the bedrooms share. The two bedrooms face towards a lower patio area with many hammocks and tables to sit at. You can also walk out into the yard and sit in our custom bar and pergola area, or you can walk out onto the beach and go for a swim in the ocean. The whole design of the house and property makes you want to get comfortable and enjoy the ocean view.


The kitchen also sits downstairs and is equipped with all new appliances and is accessible to all guests. Our staff ensures that when you're getting ready for our dawn patrol surfs,  coffee and smoothies will be waiting to get you fueled up for the days' adventures.  Lunch and dinner is also provided by staff upon your surf return. 


So just sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy the view!!!

The RipHouse sits on a beach front property in the middle of Playa Guasacate in Popoyo Nicaragua. There are many small villages and towns near by such as Las Salinas and Astierllo and the town of Guasacate. The nearest major city is Rivas, 45 min drive away. There are restaurants and bars in close proximity to the beach house and on a daily basis there are trucks that come by with all varieties of fresh, local fruits and vegetables.  There are local bread makers that come by with freshly baked onion loaves and sweet cane sugar snacks.  On the ocean side of the property, there is a yoga platform that extends over the beach giving you a 180 degree view up and down the coast line. A short 5 min walk south gets you to the estuary mouth, which is the start of the main breaks in the Popoyo beach area.

Continuing south, you have the following surf breaks: La Piedritas, Popoyo main break, Leftovers, Popoyo Outer Reef, The Right, Beginners Bay, and Magnific Rock. All of them are within a 15 min walk or 10 min drive from the house. Heading North, up the beach from the house, leads you to some incredible barreling beach breaks, beyond to rocks and secluded bays that are great for fishing. It is also full of picturesque tide pools for snorkeling.  Again, all within a 5-10 min walk.  When you want to explore the coast more to the north or south we can jump in The RipHouse Toyota Hilux and drive wherever the adventure leads! In either direction there are countless world class waves for all levels. From the long point break of Lances Left to the barreling beach break of Playa Colorados or Playa Yankee in San Juan, every day is an adventure!!!
