About the Property

Villa Sacuanjoche

One of the few truly beachfront homes in Rancho Santana. This single story home built in 2012 boasts four bedrooms with ensuite baths an office, and a studio that can sometimes be occupied separately plus an infinity pool all with full ocean views. No drawing straws for a good room. We sleep 10 in separate beds. Located on the sand at Playa Rosada. Sit around the pool and watch your friends get barreled at the left reef out front! AKA Sacuanjoche, named for our huge plumeria tree on the oceanfront. This is a private home in Rancho Santana not part of the Rancho Santana rental pool though most of the Rancho Santana amenities are available to our guests. While there are many beautiful homes in Rancho Santana there are only a handful on the beach. Most are in the hills. If you don't want to drive or hike to the beach this one is for you.
WE WILL CREDIT THE GUEST PAID VRBO FEE BACK TO YOU.

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. One sister is a strong practitioner of yoga and the other enjoys cooking, reading 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. The architect, the late ,Jose (Pepe) Berigan Tercero was the granddaddy of architects in Nicaragua. We were fortunate to have used him. We wanted a truly Nicaraguan home plus he was really creative. It is disappointing to us when a Santa Barbara style house is built in Nicaragua, a Tuscan house in California etc. We got what we wanted and more. The living areas are made to be opened to the outside. All the rooms have "all time" windows at the roof to let heat out, as well as fans. The bedrooms are air conditioned.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Santana (Rivas, Nicaragua):
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, a complimentary shuttle 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. Since the house was built for our family there isn't a bad room in the house. Plus large back up generator.
