About the Property

Beautifully Maintained Casita -- 2 Double Bedrooms Each with Private Bathroom

Enjoy a spectacular vacation at Rancho Santana, a first class resort and development on the Pacific Coast of beautiful Nicaragua. My house (Casita) is a beautifully maintained 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom bungalow just a 1 minute walk from the Rancho Santana Clubhouse, Restaurant and Bar and right by the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy the 5-Star amenities of Rancho Santana, the spectacular sunsets, the safety, peace and quiet of my casita and the beautiful plants and wildlife of this gorgeous part of Nicaragua. This is not just a rental property but my second home. I spend a lot of time here myself escaping from the Canadian weather, looking after my Casita and caring for the tropical plants I've planted around it.

When you stay at my Casita you'll enjoy wireless internet access and satellite TV -- so you can feel as connected as you wish to be with home or work.

I'm not a surfer, but I know this is one of the greatest surfing areas in the world. Just Google "Nicaragua + Surf + Tola" and you'll zone in on Rancho Santana and the surrounding beaches of Playa Santana, Playa Rosada, Colorado and Popoyo. My Casita is ideal for 4 or 5 surfers to share and enjoy a reasonably-priced holiday right by some of the best surf breaks in the Americas.

Cook for yourselves in the Casita or enjoy your meals at Rancho Santana's La Finca y El Mar Restaurant and Bar, or breakfast at the Coffee Shop. On weekends choose tapas and drinks at the Rosada Clubhouse while enjoying the beautiful sunset over Playa Rosada. Most of all, relax knowing you have choices! The Casita has a fully-equipped kitchen -- so you can either shop in the supermarkets and bring supplies for your stay with you, or you can buy them locally at Rancho Santana or the nearby villages. The best of both worlds...

My Casita is unusual at Rancho Santana in that each double bedroom has its own bathroom. The main bedroom has a Queen-size bed and the second bedroom has a Queen plus a Twin. An extra Twin is available if needed. In addition to their own bathrooms, each bedroom has a separate washbasin, mirror and cabinet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I live in Toronto, Canada. I'm a professional engineer by training and a philanthropist by nature, and I've spent many years in almost every country of Latin America. Speaking Spanish has helped me tremendously in managing and maintaining my Casita in Nicaragua. I love the country and feel very comfortable enjoying the friendship and hospitality of the people who live close by and who work at Rancho Santana.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Santana (Rivas, Nicaragua):
Love Nicaragua... love the people... high quality construction... cheaper than Costa Rica... same Pacific Ocean coastline... fresh seafood... cheap beer... high quality property management... Latino music... Internet/Satellite TV/Cell phone... excellent infrastructure... security...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet... friendly people... turtles, monkeys, butterflies and tropical birds... First-World infrastructure... Cell phones, internet and satellite TV, but being the *only* person on a beautiful deserted beach when you choose... Looking west from Playa Escondida and *no* land for 10,000 miles... nothing! What's not to like?
