If you seek luxury, beauty and comfort in a vacation home, look no further than Casa del Sol! Formerly known as Casa McVay, and located within the gated community of Rancho Santana on Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast, Casa del Sol is a 5-bedroom, 5-and-a-half-bathroom house perched directly above Playa Rosada. This multi-level home features a swimming pool, air conditioning throughout, fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet, 60-inch TV with satellite and surround sound system, ping pong table, outdoor BBQ grill and a back-up generator to power the whole house in case of a power outage. Housekeeping and gardening staff are on-hand to help make your stay comfortable and carefree. An in-home catering service is also available as an additional add-on to your luxury vacation.
Three bedrooms contain a king bed, one bedroom a queen bed and one bedroom 2 sets of bunk beds (one full and three twin beds). The house comfortably sleeps up to 12 adults. A baby crib can also be provided, if necessary.
Casa del Sol is located about a 2.5-hour drive from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua, which most guests use for their travel to Nicaragua. Many of the major vehicle rental agencies have locations at the Managua airport (we recommend you make a reservation in advance).
The Costa Esmeralda Airport, located 15 minutes from the Rancho Santana development, opened in late 2015. Direct flights are available from Liberia, Costa Rica on Sansa Airlines. If traveling light, guests may want to consider experiencing the beautiful views and convenience of flying into the Costa Esmeralda Airport. These are small commuter planes with limited cargo storage. Those traveling with full size suitcases and surfboards should check with the airlines before booking ticket to ensure there is ample baggage space on the flight.
While we provide airport transportation, its necessary to have a rental vehicle while staying within the Rancho Santana community. This development is a sprawling, 2,700 acre property, full of rolling hills and home to 5 beautiful beaches. These beaches are known for breathtaking coastal views and world class surf breaks.
A vehicle will also allow you to access the Playa Colorado, Panga Drops and Los Perros surf breaks. There is a back road within Rancho Santana that leads to a surf parking area (and great taco restaurant!). You can park there and surf Los Perros out front or walk to Panga Drops and Playa Colorado.
Additional amenities within the community include 3 restaurants, a café, a pool side bar, 3 community pools, clubhouse area (equipped with a bocce court and horseshoe pit), horse stables, hiking trails, tennis courts, a spectacular yoga platform looking over beautiful Playa Santana, the Ford Fine Art Gallery, a spa, small grocery market, and more!
A vehicle is also necessary to access the development’s restaurant and other points of interest in the area. Rental vehicles can be obtained at the Managua Airport or at nearby rental agencies. We can provide a guide to meet you at the airport in his own vehicle to show you the way to Rancho Santana. We can also help set up a vehicle rental with a nearby agency (which will deliver to your rental property) if you would prefer to be picked up at the airport instead of driving yourself.
