About Chris Allaman, MD
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.
Chris Allaman, MD purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Chris Allaman, MD chose Rancho Santana
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.
What makes this Villa unique
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.

Excellent location and accommodation
We would highly recommend staying at Villa Ohana to anyone. The house, grounds and location are beautiful and perfect for anyone wanting to see this wonderful area. We will look forward to our next visit and stay here.
This property is absolutely beautiful. Between the gorgeous gardens in the yard and the spectacular view of the ocean, this house was a perfect retreat. The location was one of the most convienent and beautiful of the properties in the entire Rancho Santana community. The walking trail to the restaurant was fun and safe even at night while only being a few steps away from the main hotel/restaurant area. Gloria the housekeeper and David the groundskeeper were warm and friendly. Thank you to the owners for the opportunity to stay in your home!
Stunning Vacation Home!
This house is amazing, hands down the best view and access in Rancho Santana! We enjoyed 9 days of beautiful views, surfing, walking to the clubhouse restaurant and bar, checking the surf while lounging in the infinity pool, we couldn't ask for more! Gloria the housekeeper was a joy to see each morning and she kept the place up top notch, she also can cook a mean meal! David not only keeps the house and grounds in impeccable condition he also was kind enough to help us with groceries, he washed the truck multiple times for us during our down time or while we were out surfing, he also helped arrange anything we might need. My favorite spot might just be the second floor balcony with multiple hammocks, I took a nap one afternoon in the onshore winds and was almost chilly in September in Nicaragua! Five stars!
Best vacation ever!
Truly do not know where to begin... The house was perfect. The pool was phenomenal. The staff, David and Gloria were exceptional. The convenience was key. The views were breathtaking. The beds were beyond comfortable. The lay out was perfect. The owners are great. We have stayed in many places in Nicaragua yet nothing compares to villa Ohana. We travel with three children ranging in ages from 15-4. We bring our mom who is 70. Villa Ohana is perfect for all people from families to romantic getaways. The best place on earth!!!!! Truly amazing. Highly recommend. I cried to the airport when leaving. We love villa Ohana and its people!!!!
Villa Ohana Magnificent!
Amazing views. the best sport in Rancho Santana.
Walk to the beach from your back yard. Close to the clubhouse for sunset cocktails and surfing.
New pool is a great added touch but you are so close to the see and the clubhouse pool that everything your need is at your footsteps.
Walk down the beach for cocktails at So Lost or great pizza at Escala.
We had the perfect wind down with our Ohana!
The pool was a great addtion to an already fabulous house
This was our second stay at Villa Ohana. Chris just finished adding a large infinity pool overlooking the Santana surf break. In my previous review of the property, this was the only thing I suggested could make this house any better. Its now perfect. I've stayed at a lot of homes on the Nicaraguan coast (Santana, Iguana...). This is at the top of my list. We will definitely return.
I am so pleased to hear you had a good time and think the new inifinity pool is a great addition to the house. We agree, you can't beat Ohana for its views, location and privacy.
You are always welcomed back.
Thanks for taking such great care of our dream house.
Best personal regards,
