There is free and safe parking available. We loved sunbathing on the stretch of beach right on the property and loved the surflesson Peter arranged for us. We would surely... More

We were staying at another hotel property, but when we discovered this place we had wished we had stayed here the entire time. We ended up coming to Ranchos Itauna several times throughout our stay in Santa Theresa. They have the best sunset viewing area, the... More

We visited Ranchos Itauna with my wife's aunt and friend. Peter is a great host, always making us feeling welcome. The place has a great location right at the beach. The property where the cabinas are located has a restaurant and a living space.

We stumbled across this bar last night looking for a good spot to watch the sunset. The layout of the bar is very chilled and directly on the beach. We took advantage of happy hour cocktails and enjoyed them while watching the beautiful Sunset. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The vibe was very chilled. Enjoy!!!

That's the place you're looking for to escape from the city. Location simply perfect! Peter the owner is the perfect guest. The view is amazing and during the low tide natural pools appear right at the point. Not last, the beach bar is the best location in town to enjoy the sunset.
