Perched at the western tip of Playa Santana, Villa Ohana is perhaps the best located home in Rancho Santana. The oceanfront infinity edge pool is perfectly sited to see surfers race through barrels at the Playa Santana surf break directly in front, and marvel at mesmerising sunsets each evening. The property joins directly with the coast, with access to the beach & surf break via a path that meanders through Villa Ohana’s mature tropical gardens. Surrounded by extensive, varied and impeccably kept tropical landscaping Villa Ohana is a paradise guaranteed to will relax & rejuvenate in equal measure.
  • Convenient for Rancho Santana amenities
  • Surf views from infinity edge pool
  • Extensive tropical gardens

The Accommodation

Set on a single floor Villa Ohana has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The villa affords expansive views of the Pacific ocean, breaking surf, blowholes and volcanic mountains in the distance from all bedrooms and living areas.

The oceanview master bedroom features a king size bed, the second bedroom features a queen size bed, the third bedroom features two twin beds and a trundle bed. Bedroom 4, located away from the main house beside the swimming pool, offers unbeatable closeness to the ocean and surf. All bedrooms open up to the mature tropical gardens and have AC, ceiling fans and their own bathrooms.

The villa will comfortably accommodate eight guests, with 6 in the main house and 2 in the pool room. The media room could be used instead of pool room BR4 if preferred. Floor to ceiling bifold doors (Nana doors) surround the ornate red brick vaulted ceiling living room. Outdoor and indoor living spaces fuse, with the prevailing north easterly breeze and sounds of the sea channel through. The dining room features an exquisite granite slab table with seating for eight.

Tastefully decorated Villa Ohana was designed from the ground up to make the most of the incredible views all around. All bedrooms have ocean views. Well appointed living areas are ideally situated to watch the sunrises, sunsets & surf. Catching the prevailing winds and providing deep shade the extensive covered balcony provides the perfect respite from the hot Nicaraguan sun. Lush mature landscaping adds to the privacy and serenity that Ohana offers.

From Los Angeles, CA (USA) August 20 2022 - September 04 2022

Ohana was easily one of the most incredible places that I have ever stayed at in my life. It is not a house but an ocean-front resort that is close to a beautiful beach, great waves, and a fun clubhouse with delicious food. The pool area was also a plus for the non-surfers of the group. I stayed with several friends and we all had a blast. The hose was also super accommodating, responsive, and helpful with recs.


My only regret was not staying longer. I cannot wait to return! If you want the experience of a lifetime - book yesterday!

This is a once in a lifetime experience in an estate home & resort on the Ocean

From West Palm Beach, FL February 23 2022 - March 02 2022

Wow! That's the best way to describe Villa Ohana! This is not just a regular vacation destination... this is an experience of a lifetime. I've traveled all over the world but this property, resort and country is absolutely underrated & might be my favorite along with St. Barth's! So when you first arrive at the property you are drawn in by the perfection of the property lay-out & one of the most valuable property lots in this gated, resort community. You are a three minute walk (no joke) from the restaurants and main clubhouse area. You are on the ocean and if you are a surfer, like to fish, or just love swimming & watching waves & nature you will be in paradise. The rooms are well decorated, spacious & you literally feel like you're in a $10M+ mansion with empty lots on both sides; so the level of privacy is ideal. David & Gloria take care of the property so you don't have to stress over the minor stuff. They are both warm and loving people. We even had Gloria make us a traditional Nicaraguan dish for lunch (see pics/video below). That was incredible! David was our guide who resides on a separate house on the property & helped us out tremendously during our stay. We hugged both of them when we left, because we truly thought of them as friends after a week. Please tip them well. They go above and beyond for you during your stay. The breeze and lack of humidity makes it so you don't really need to use the AC much. I know that sounds crazy from someone like me coming from S. Florida, but it's true. You can literally sleep outside on the grass outside if you wanted to! Rancho Santana is a premier resort with only monstrous homes and the highest construction standards. The roads are mainly dirt so definitely get an SUV. AWD is ideal, but you can get away without it unless you want to climb the remote hills in this enormous community. They have so many remote beaches with no one on them and 4 farm to table restaurants; which we frequented often. Right outside of the community is Popoyo which is a surfing destination. We enjoyed many days walking from our property to that area & had cheap, local food that was incredible. We felt so safe there. We didn't have a single incident that felt uncomfortable or sketchy. This is a highly desirable area & as someone who lives in a gated, secure community it felt like the good old days where you didn't need to lock your doors or worry about crime. It was a very genuine, comforting experience that exceeded our expectations. Go here & you won't regret it. We love Nicaragua and will be back later this year. A special thank you to James Hearn (helped us book the property), David & Gloria (make the property run perfectly) & Chris who owns the property. Chris made an incredible investment, and I envy him daily after visiting this one of a kind piece of perfection. We will be back!

From San Francisco Bay Area, CA, USA January 13 2022 - January 20 2022

What a wonderful place to escape to! Staying at Villa Ohana, with its amazing views, unbeatable waterfront location and first-class amenities, has gifted my husband and I with the most unforgettable memories. David and Gloria, their onsite caretakers, were outstanding too. They were very friendly, attentive and kept the property at its best condition. It was a pleasure to be greeted by their smiling faces each day. Rancho Santana Inn is literally next door - which is very convenient for dining at the La Finca y El Mar and/ or going to the in-house tienda (market) to buy a few supplies. We definitely can’t wait to spend another blissful week (or two) here in the very near future.

From CHICAGO, IL December 27 2019 - January 02 2020

Staying at Ohana was such a special experience. For our group of eight Ohana provided everything we needed and more. First of all, the location is absolutely perfect. It really doesn’t get any better. Ohana has a unique and thoughtful layout, that lends itself well to letting groups enjoy common spaces but also provides enough space and privacy for all. There is just the right amount of indoor and outdoor space. With ocean front views, a beautifully landscaped garden, and an infinity pool everything you need is at Ohana. Highly suggest doing the meal plan as well for delicious meals that are prepared on-site. Ohana is a slice of paradise, and a very special place. We will definitely be back!
