About John and Evelyn Edwards or Sherri Grbavac

My wife Evelyn and I built our retreat of 'Casa Santana' a few years back so that we could occasionally get a break from the 'Cold Canadian North'. We enjoy spending time with all of our family and friends there whenever we are able. We travel frequently to our 'home away from home' year round, and like to think that all of our guests feel as at home as we do during their stay....we hope that our 'haven' is a place that will attract you back to Casa Santana time and time again. Sherri, our daughter manages the rentals for Casa Santana and has had extensive experience with all there is to do in the area as a result of her 5 yr full time tenure there until she returned to Canada a few years ago...she's a delight to talk to, and would welcome any inquiries that you may have.

Why John and Evelyn Edwards or Sherri Grbavac chose Rivas

We chose to own a piece of this magical place very early on in the developing stages....we couldn't be happier with our home along with the beautiful beaches, smiling faces and the great family adventures that we enjoy!

What makes this villa unique

This is our home away from home. We hope that you will enjoy the love and attention that we have put into the detail at Casa Santana that makes our stay and yours amazing, every time!

Home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time in Nicaragua. What a surprise to see the improved infrastructure and safe surrounding. The Inn and Resort area were impressive and we were able to take pictures that could be made into post cards. Casa Santana was more than I expected. The modern kitchen made it a breeze to cook breakfast and prepare snacks during the day. Taking a swim every morning before breakfast drove home the fact that we were on vacation and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. I would definitely bring my family and vacation there again.

Amazing property!! Dream Home~!

  • 4 of 5

My stay at Casa Santana was the highlight of my two week vacation in Nicaragua. I fell in love with the home, it's architecture is breathtaking, I loved every artifact of decoration everywhere which was rich with Nicaraguan culture. My family and I had a blast and I dream of coming back to your property again in the near future. I loved the fact that we had access to the clubhouse which was an added bonus. The only feedback I would say is that we had no cable TV, only a DVD player. The other bummer was that the beach is not really for swimming, it's more for surfing. I come from Southern California where the beaches are really cold and so I was hoping for warm beach that was safe for my two children but the waves were gigantic and the water not so warm. Other than that, the water was really clean. But overall, this house is a dream house. Congratulations on your amazing taste!

Great property in playa Santana

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for eight days at this lovely beach house which is just minutes walk from Rosado's surf break which is a really nice left point break the house is very clean and there's made service every day the pool is a really great added bonus the kitchen is well-equipped My only complaint would be that its stated to sleep seven but not if you're seven male surfers. It might sleep seven if there were couples that wanted to share a queen bed but overall fantastic

Owner's Response: Thanks for the constructive comments...we are looking at perhaps putting a few single beds in place of the queen bed in one of the bedrooms...that way they can be slept in either separately or pushed together:) Thanks again and please come back! John Edwards

Relaxing and luxurious!

  • 4 of 5

Casa Santana is the perfect home for a family. We travel a lot but still had concerns about Nicaragua. The owners were so helpful before our trip, responding to every question with enthusiasm. They made us feel at ease before we even left the US. The location of the house is perfect. you can see the ocean from the house and the beach is just a short walk. The staff at the house are amazing and made the stay even better. Rancho Santana is gorgeous and having the amenities at your fingertips adds even more. We had Chefs from the restaurant come and prepare meals for us at the house so we could relax with the kids by the pool. I highly reccomend doing this.The house is such a great value, worth every penny. We can not wait to return to Casa Santana.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have long been traveling to Nicaragua, but we have always done "budget" travel. This time, we invited my in-laws (in their 70s), and decided to upgrade. We stayed at Casa Santana for 3 nights, and it was wonderful! The house is solidly built with beautiful wooden fixtures and gorgeous native wooden furniture. The rooms are large, and the beds are very comfy! Our favorite part was the patio by the pool, with lots of different chairs and hammocks for relaxing. It was so quiet at night, and not hot at all during the day. Its located within the community of Rancho Santana so you have access to the clubhouse and pool if you want, or you can just stay in the house! Everything was immaculate and well-kept, it is obvious the owners have spent a lot of thought and put a lot of care into the place. Highly recommend!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Casa Santana had everything we were looking for. The house has a lot of space, it is well kept and the house keeper, Karina, keeps it very clean. The terrace and pool area is perfect to relax and enjoy. The location is great, safe and close to the beach. If you want to explore, there are some great mountain bike trails or you can visit nearby beaches all within Rancho Santana. The beach club was very nice and serves great food. I do recommend the Magnific Rock restaurant. It has amazing food and views! Our vacation in Casa Santana was perfect. Looking forward to our next stay!
