About us

Know our story, get to know us better

Our names are Ani & Ryan Cook and we are very excited you decided to spend your holiday in our property.


Ryan is a professional Surf Instructor from San Diego, CA. He lived and trained in Hawaii years ago and he would be more than happy to help you get better at this addicting sport. As for me, Ani, I’m Nicaraguan and I graduated from Dentistry School in 2007 before moving down to Hacienda Iguana. 


We have been living in Hacienda Iguana for 3 full years now. Ryan loves the waves here and we both appreciate the security and comfort this community has to offer. We love it so much we bought a piece of land and we are planning to build our house in the future and raise our family here. For now, we only have two cute fur balls, Milo & Lani.


We started our Property Management company, Vana Vacation Rentals, two years ago in the hopes of providing guests with the kind of service we would like to have ourselves while on vacation, as well as to help our property owners have peace of mind knowing their property is in good hands and well taken care of while they’re away. 


We found the perfect place to live and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
