Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Who are we and how did we get here? We are Scott Behrens and Elizabeth (Liz) Hart-Behrens. Just a couple of adventurous travelers that set off to find some good surf on our sailboat "Ocean Lady" in 2004. We sailed over 15,000 miles up and down the Pacific coast of California, Mexico and Central America with 2 dogs and a cat! We sailed into Nicaragua in the Spring of 2007 and fell in love with the country, the people and the surf! So, we swallowed the anchor and settled down on our little slice of paradise and built us Rancho Cecilia
Why the Owner Chose Municipal de San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua:
We started building our Eco-Rancho in 2007 with the purchase of bare land. We now have three homes on the property and are fully "off the grid" for all of our electrical needs.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Rancho Cecilia is located in the countryside and close to Playa Maderas and Playa Marsella but nestled in the jungle in a tranquil setting with lots of wildlife!
