|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
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.
We are from Canada.
Adam and Jenny Pepper purchased this house in 2013
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.
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.
As we arrived to this property we were speechless: it is much better than the photos show and it is perfectly located in relation to the main village and the beaches.
The exteriors, including the parking lot, the swimming pool and the unforgettable views, are just awesome. The interior is huge, the kitchen is equipped with just everything. What we enjoyed most was the barbecue outside, very easy and comfortable to prepare delicious meals. The staff taking care of the property (check in/check out, housekeeping, night security) is fantastic and friendly. We were very pleased to find everything we needed, included a rechargeable mobile phone that resulted useful for making short local calls.
The property doesn't have air conditioning, but plenty of ceiling fans work well enough to create a pleasant freshness in every room. The only problem we had was due to lack of electricity that occurred a couple of times during the night, making it difficult to manage with the warm temperature for a couple of hours, but that isn't the owners' fault.
I would highly recommend this property, given that you are prepared to enter in contact with the mesoamerican corridor wildlife, I mean huge quantity of biodiversity and just a lot of insects outside there: but that's part of the Nicaraguan experience.
My Husband and I decided we wanted to go to Nicaragua for our honeymoon, what an amazing decision! I can not rate Rancho Rana highly enough.
We looked at a few properties and decided that this one was the best.
On arrival we went to the property manager's office, she was absolutely lovely, greeted us with such kindness and was extremely helpful with letting us know where everything was and what we could do if we needed anything.
The house was beautiful and spacious. The master bedroom was perfect for us and the kitchen was very user friendly and had everything we needed. The pool was perfect when it was too hot and looked over an incredible bay, every night there was the most beautiful sunsets.
Walter and Oscar (the day and night time staff) were very friendly and welcoming. Walter was very helpful with everything we needed.
All in all both of us loved our stay and are planning on going back very soon.
The best for the $$$$$'s I have found in San Juan Del Sur and I have stayed at different places, different times. The young man that is responsible for the daily maintenance is a blessing for the people that own the property. He is all everything. On arrival, the house and grounds were tooth brush clean and he kept it that way through out the stay.
I spent four nights with my wife and two young children and our stay was amazing. All the previous great reviews and photos of the property are spot on. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. The owners, the property manager and the caretaker were always very helpful in answering any questions we had or any help we needed. The house had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed the swimming pool, the barbecue and the view of the ocean every day of our stay. I would highly recommend this property. Thank you again to the owners for sharing their house and making our stay very pleasant.
Our home is perfectly located to experience all of the activities and amenities of the San Juan Del Sur area. The beaches of the North and South are easily accessible via your own means or simply go to town and take one of the many shuttles that venture out to the surf beaches.
