                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are two sisters that built this house for our family. This is our third building project together. My sister is a strong practitioner of yoga and the other enjoys cooking and entertaining family and friends. The art in the house is all from our family. The left side of the house contains photos taken by our great uncle when he visited Nicaragua with President Hoover. Our uncle then went on to be the first US envoy to China. Hanging on the right side of the house are photos of our son from around the world. They were used, not as family photos, but for the colors of water.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tola:
                      The first time we came to Nicaragua we rented , Villa Espiral, across the street. We fell in love with the pink sanded beach, the sunset views and what is now our big Sacuanjoche (plumeria) tree. The biggest plus for our family was the insane surfing in Rancho Santana and the left reef in front of the house!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Rancho Santana is a unique gate guarded ranch,on the beach,in Nicaragua. The community includes horseback riding, tennis, yoga, swimming, a small convenience store, an organic garden, guided nature walks and world class surfing. The restaurant is excellent, as is the event planning. We recently had events at the house and at the restaurant. Both couldn't have been better. All within walking distance from the house.
