BEACHSONG....Now Not Renting...too much crime...too much dust....not enough water....electricity too expensive.
The best house on Santa Teresa Beach at a great low rate. Compare our rates with others that have this ocean view and beach frontage, Beachsong is the best deal on the Santa Teresa Beach or any of the neighboring beaches.
Tucked away on the exclusive north end of Playa Santa Teresa, within walking distance of the flor Blanca Resort and Restaurant, this home enjoys a pristine, beachfront location with no close neighbours to intrude upon your holiday. This one-of-a-kind beach house at the end of a long driveways totally hidden from the main road by natural foliage and secured by a remote controlled gate. Located on the best white sand beach on the Nicoya Peninsula. Surfers can easily catch waves directly in front of the house, or you are a short paddle from 'Suck Rock'. The stylish fully air-conditioned two bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom house is sophisticated enough to please the most discriminating guest with contemporary design elements and amenities. Yet, it retains the casual ambiance of a beach front Eden, where you can relax on one of two, spacious, roofed porches after an afternoon spent in the sunshine and the waves with a cold beer in one hand, a book in the other and sand between your toes.
Beachsong comes fully furnished with a gourmet kitchen complete with a Viking stove and dishwasher, DVD, iPod connectivity (4th gen. Bose iPod dock), WiFi, clothes washer and dryer, safe to store valuables and laptop. Relax in each of the bedroom's king size beds while enjoying views to the beach, or luxuriate beneath the hot water in the shower. The house is raised up and fully enclosed and is free from bugs. For those who prefer ocean breezes to air conditioning, sliding glass doors lead to the front porch to enable your desires.
While one can retreat into the fully air conditioned house, it's the natural elements of this property that are most alluring. White-face and howler monkeys greet one another as they traverse the canopy of native trees, hermit crabs trace intricate roadways in the sand as they forage for fallen coconuts, iguanas bask in the midday sun, and tropical birds who alight on nearby branches call out to each other. Beyond the edge of this organic front yard, the azure expanse of the Pacific Ocean beckons you. For those who prefer to leave their iPods at home, the soundtrack of waves that crest and break just yards from the front door may prove to be the only music you need.
The home is limited to to four (4) guests total, including children, and we request that all guests be at least eight (8) years of age. The one story home is elevated to take advantage of the ocean views and breezes, making the open porches unsafe for small children.
Getting to Playa Santa Teresa is half the adventure, and a variety of transportation options are available to you. We are approximately 5 hours from San Jose by car, the nearest airstrip, Tambor, is approximately 45 minutes away. If you are renting a car get a GPS, they take the guess work out of driving. We are located halfway between Flor Blanca resort and Casas Mariposa in Santa Teresa.
Do We Need A Rental Car? Yes, better a 4x4. Most of the local roads are gravel with potholes, a 4x4 gives you a more comfortable ride, higher clearance and has safer traction. Rental companies usually insist on a 4x4 if they know you are going to Santa Teresa.

The best surfing is right in front of the house as well as boogie boarding, there are paddle board lessons and rentals also. You can feed the iguanas from the front deck, there are some great nearby hikes, instructions for all these activities are described in the 'Welcome To Beachsong Info Book' inside the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Beachsong is located at the north end of Santa Teresa Beach, no shoes needed, we are right on the sand. You can surf or swim directly in front of the house, there are no rocks. Beachsong is away from the hustle and bustle of the town at the south end. We are near the Flor Blanca Resort (we are better located) and also near a new super market. Beachsong is centrally located with Playa Hermosa and Manzanillo to the north, Playa Carmen and MalPais to the south. It is approximately seven miles from MalPais to Manzanillo, nothing is very far away. When I want a respite from the waves, there is an Olympic sized tide pool very near the house that I snorkel and float in. Other times I go hiking and bird watching. There is a complete guide book that I have put together with information on what to do & see, where to eat, where to shop, hiking trails, all the things that will help you fully enjoy your stay at Beachsong.
