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
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 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.
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.
We had a great time. Chris' house is beautiful. Gloria and David were outstanding and were ready to assist us with our every need. It was fabulous being so close to the main Rancho Santana clubhouse, restaurant and pool as well as the main surf break at Playa Santana. The food at the restaurant is really great. I only ask that Chris consider putting a pool in his beautiful "backyard" facing the pacific. It would put the house over the top.
Villa Ohana was exactly the perfect home to celebrate my 40th birthday. Ideally located just steps away from the Club House and Inn at Rancho Santana while still feeling miles away with the spectacular ground and views. I wouldn't hesitate to book there again!
When I booked my trip I had the highest expectations. Ohana blew my expectations away. This is the most prime location on Rancho Santana. You can see perfect surf right out front of the villa. In the distance you can see Popoyo. Colorados is a ten minute drive that doesn't leave the ranch. If you want to adventure out, the surrounding area was safe and friendly. The clubhouse had amazing service, first class food, and reasonable prices.
The caretaker and housekeeper took amazing care of us and the home. They were always smiling and their top priority was our enjoyment and safety.
The beaches were amazingly beautiful for surfers and landlubbers alike. The horseback riding, tide-pooling, and turtle beach kept the non-surfers entertained while the experienced surfers dropped into waves of all kinds. After the sun goes down, you can head to the pool for some refreshment and refueling. We will be rebooking as soon as we can.
Ohana is everything and more that you see in its description. Close enough to the Inn for drinks and meals but you have absolute privacy. The caretaker and housekeeper are an integral part to the experience of Ohana. They take impeccable care of the property and are respectful of guests privacy.
For anyone surfing the location is perfect. Within 2 minutes you are paddling out.
If you intend on staying put at the property and utilizing the Inn you will not need a car.
Here a few tips:
1. If you want to access distant beaches or go shopping off property rent a car prior to your arrival either at Managua airport or Granada. Rancho Santana Inn will allow you to set up a master account to charge food, spa services, yoga to BUT they will not allow you to rent a car from them or have use of the shuttles.
2. If you want to cook in and are use to American style shopping stop someplace before your arrival (Granada) to stock up on lots of food.
We looked around at all the other houses on the property and Villa Ohana had the best location.
I can highly recommend Heavenly, lovely Ohana
My teenagers and I stayed at Ohana in July, 2015 and had an amazing time. We especially enjoyed the view of the surfing break just in front of the huge oceanfront lawn and gardens. The short path to the Clubhouse winds along the ocean through gardens and trees. The maid kept the home spotless and prepared tasty breakfast and lunches. The gardener has a lobster connection that you will want to take advantage of. Rancho Santana has so many great activities, and a road through its coastal hills to explore several great beaches and surf breaks to the south.
If you are going to Nicaragua, and want to enjoy a spacious home with privacy, book Villa Ohana for the ultimate vacation experience.
