About the property

A Spanish Style 3 Bedroom Villa With Unobstructed Ocean View And Private Pool.

Are you looking for a tranquil setting with an unobstructed view of the ocean, a private pool you can actually swim in, a propane BBQ that you can cook on, free use of our bicycles and boogie boards and much much more all for an affordable price? Well look no further!

Our home has 3 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms in a Spanish style villa over looking the pool and ocean. Located in Nacascola Bay (adjacent San Juan Del Sur Bay), we are well positioned to explore the many beaches and sights of the San Juan Del Sur area. Having your own means of transportation is definitely the best way to discover the area, but for those who would prefer not to drive, you can walk (2 miles) to town or take one of our bicycles to town. In town you can dine at one of the many restaurants, find tours that suit your tastes, take shuttles to the different beaches, go zip-lining, sightseeing, shopping and much more.

Rancho Rana offers a private tranquil setting with many of the amenities of home. A well equipped kitchen, with a stove, fridge and microwave. Want to BBQ? We have a propane BBQ on the Porch overlooking the pool and ocean. The home is equipped with Satellite Television and free WiFi throughout the property.

We have hot water for the showers and large ceiling fans throughout the home to keep the air flowing. There is a caretaker on site to help you with anything you may need and an English/German/Spanish speaking property manager to assist you with any concerns.

We love San Juan Del Sur, and if you have any questions or would like recommendations or help planning your trip please feel free to contact us. We would love to help.

About Adam and Jenny Pepper

We are from Canada.

Adam and Jenny Pepper purchased this house in 2013

Why Adam and Jenny Pepper chose San Juan del Sur

We fell in love with the view and ocean breezes of the property. We love San Juan Del Sur, but we did not want to be right in the town. Our location has a very peaceful cottage like feel, yet if we need anything or do not feel like cooking it is just around the corner.

An awesome week in San Juan Del Sur

  • 5 of 5

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!! I do not know what else one can say!!! Nicaragua first timers we were!!! We were a little worried about Nicaragua with kids . . . . for what . . . who knows!! The home is wicked, great ocean view, big pool and a bbq outside to use. The kids loved the boogie boards provided and they wanted to bring "Dora" the friendly little watch dog home. Nothing could have made our stay in Nicaragua better . . . it was truly the best!!! Thank you for sharing your home for the most memorable vacation!!! WE WILL BE BACK!!!!

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was absolutely perfect for our stay near San Juan del Sur. It's far enough from town to be quiet and peaceful, but close enough to get to all the amenities of town easily. The home itself was wonderful - a lovely spanish style villa. Very spacious and open. The kitchen was well stocked with nice new appliances, and the gas grill outside was great - everything we needed to cook many delicious meals. The pool of course was fantastic, always kept fresh and clean by the caretaker. The staff - the caretaker and night watchman - were great people. We loved having them around, and they did a fantastic job. And lastly, the two outdoor dogs are sweet and fun to have around (especially the playful puppy). We were a little heartbroken to leave. We will surely be back next time we're in the area.

Great Family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home, the pictures do not do it justice. The views are spectacular and the house has all the amenities you could wish for. My girls loved the fact they had a pool all to themselves. Walter made sure we had a clean pool and patio at all times, and was very helpful in letting us know where to go in the area. Oscar the security guard made us feel safe at night. The home is spacious and clean.. we enjoyed it so much we would rent it again in a heartbeat. Adam and Jenny (the owners) were very quick to respond to emails and answer any questions we had... Thank you very much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. :)

Perfect relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A worry when booking accommodation is always going to be 'is it as described and as per photographs' or were these taken some years ago. This property is better than the photos suggest. The pool is a lovely size, always spotlessly clean and maintained daily with views out to sea and of course the sunsets in the evening. Good size living room and full kitchen facilities if you decide to do some cooking. We just made breakfast, enjoyed relaxing by the pool for most of the week after 4 weeks of travelling through Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua and went into SJDS for dinner. Its 4km to SJDS for any grocery shopping and eating at night so to make it convenient a car would be best rather than taxis. Nice beach in SJDS and 4 km the other direction along the gravel road to Marsella, a really nice beach. The gravel road is easily passable in a normal saloon, no need for 4x4. When you consider two couples or a family could stay here with a private pool for the price that many places around SJDS are charging for a single hotel room it really is fantastic value.

We arrived via taxi(no car). The house is very comfortable and beautiful with an amazing view! We spent most of our time @ the house and biked into town. Walter, the daytime worker was very helpful and kind. We grilled every evening for dinner and just enjoyed the home. We met the evening guard, Oscar, and it was a comfort to have him around. There are also 2 friendly dogs on the property, which made it feel like home. I highly recommend a car while staying here.
