Car: Recommended

Located right in the center of the surf rich region of the Emerald Coast there is world class surf with reef breaks, beach breaks, point waves and outer reef big wave surf. The wild life and birding can be enjoyed from the backyard to the entire compound. Horses can be rented to tour the beaches and jungles. A well stocked market offers the essentials plus organic produce grown on site. Topographically spectacular this area of Nicaragua offers year round off shore breezes perfect for surfing and sailing. Rancho Santana is the most mature of the developments offering easy access to the entire region. The local community of Limon is just outside the gates with local food and culture. Medical clinic is at the entrance to Rancho Santana with staffed physician.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We built our dream surf villa back several years ago. We named it Ohana for it's meaning of 'family and friends'. We have never rented out Villa Ohana before so now is your chance to rent one of the most beautiful properties and unique location along the Pacific Nicaraguan Coast-the Emerald Coast as it is known today. We live in Santa Cruz, CA raising our family and visit as often as we can. Our boys have grown up there spending much of their summers exploring the wildlife, reefs and now the perfect waves that abound all around Ohana.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Santana (Rivas, Nicaragua):
Ultimate World Class surf Experience with attention to details to make an experience you and your family will never forget. Make it part of your surf trip of a lifetime. Walk to the Clubhouse for finest dinning, bar, pool, & games just 3 minutes on a private trail. We cherish the stunning sunsets from the upstairs entertainment rooms as well as enjoying the morning sunrise checking out the different breaks right below. You can't really beat the views, location, and energy this home provides. And now with the most stunning infinity pool, water fall and lounging area sitting right over the Pacific you will never want to leave.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The property sold itself back before Nicarauga was even on the map for tourism and surfing. We then built our dream surf villa on one of the most pristine ocean front double lots in the entire 3000 acre community of Ranch Santana. The views you will not find elsewhere in all of Rancho Santana nor the entire Emerald Coast. It has over 165 feet of ocean frontage offering unparalleled views, privacy and a spectacular brand new swimming pool with water fall feature to further delight the senses.
