Why Roger Dowst chose Rancho Santana
I wanted to be able to surf everyday, and I wanted to be surrounded by nature. This spot pushed all the right buttons. I have 5 breaks in a 1.5 radius, and another 2 within a 2.5 mile radius.The people here are great, and life is simple. We also have Casa de Abdo at 797938 VRBO.com
What makes this House unique
All the surf breaks are within 3-15 minutes from the house no restricted acess.Santana beach break,Colorados,Rosada,panga drop and a 30 minute drive to Popoyo So once your at Rancho Santana you have it all,plus a killer clubhouse and restarant and large free form salt pool overlooking the break at Santana and another pool overlooking Rosada.,Great left point break at low tide in Rancho Santana.

What a great experience
We loved Roger's house, Rancho Santa, Nicaragua and all of the memories made here. The sunsets over the infinity pool were perfect, the beaches in the community were pristine, and the food in the restaurant was outstanding. Roger arranged our pick up from Managua airport as well as our rental truck for our stay. Our advice is to bypass Costa Rica and head for Nicaragua!
Great Place to Stay!
This was a great place to stay! Roger provided a great house with a sweet pool and view of the ocean. He was very quick to get back to us and his house staff did a great excellent job. We got his local fish delivered and cooked on the patio a lot. The Rancho Santana area has great surf, relaxing pools and grounds and super food and drinks. Highly recommend going to this site, and hope again.
Great ! Meeting the two of you and hope to charge Panga the next time with ya
Thanks for staying with us,hope to see ya soon
Tucked away up in the hills with spectacular ocean views
Easy access by car to all Rancho Santana facilities.
Peaceful and beautiful house
Beautiful house with beautiful view. We stayed for 2 nights only, but for sure we will come back. The house is clean and equipped with everything that you could need. A big plus is that the internet is super fast! We really enjoyed our short stay. Roger was really responsive to all our questions and made sure that all our needs were satisfied. I will definitely recommend this property.
Wonderful location and views!
We loved the location and the views were spectacular! Sunsets over the ocean every evening from the beautiful multi-level patios. The layout of the house is great and Gladis, the housekeeper was an absolute joy. She helped us find a little market to buy food and it was delicious. She is a great asset. Having access to the beaches, restaurants and amenities at Rancho Santana was wonderful. The food at the main restaurant is incredible.
The reason we only give the house 3 starts is because it is in serious need of some TLC. The paint is peeling, stonework breaking, tiles missing from the pool, kitchen faucet handle broken, toilet seat loose, roof tiles broken, very uncomfortable living room furniture, wood pergolas in disrepair.
We were very lucky that we had a four wheel drive vehicle as the driveway is very steep - I would recommend 4WD for the trip as a whole.
That being said, we had a wonderful and memorable vacation and would highly recommend it.
Sorry to hear ...we are constantly doing upkeep and capital improvements...sorry we fell short of your expectations.....we stay pretty busy and we try not to disturb our guests who are staying at the house......that being said thanks for pointing those things out
