Our vision was to design modern tropical Estate homes that frame the absolute tranquility of the surrounding 3 acres of lush gardens, swaying palms and head-on ocean views.

The Estate homes also appeal to those seeking the ease & luxury of private beach access. There is no need to hike or drive in the heat to find one of the few public beach paths. All the comforts and amenities of The Beach Estates and our beachfront infinity pools are always there...right on the beach!

Best of all...our guests have private & direct access to one of Santa Teresa's rare sandy bottom swimming areas located just in front of The Estates' beachfront gate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sandy Lane turned out to be the perfect spot for our family to get away together!

With kids in college & high school it is increasingly difficult to spend quality time together...however Sandy Lane was just what we all had hoped for and so much more!

No cell texting...and lots of time to take walks together along one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. We have incredible memories that we will bring back home.

A Big thank you to the Sandy Lane staff (Ugo, Lubis and Herman) for making every moment we spent in paradise sheer bliss.

Sandy Lane is now the place where we all want to escape from the hustle & bustle of our daily lives.

We love Santa Teresa and can't wait to come back to this absolutely perfect beach house!

Truly Magical Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Friends of ours turned us onto Sandy Lane and our family's experience was truly magical:

Absolute best beach location in Santa Teresa

Loved the modern design and serene privacy

The staff was warm, welcoming and quietly did their thing each day

Our concierge Johnny helped us plan all activities and was always available to answer any questions that came up. and gave us great restaurant tips as well!

We all loved the private plane service...we flew in the 7 passenger plane which was pure luxury and a lot of fun!

Loved waking up each morning to the head on ocean view right in front of the house.

Kids went from the surf to the pool all day long and didn't miss the gadgets.

Everything was relaxed and easy...we're coming back next summer and renting both houses with our friends.

Relaxed Luxury!!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Estates was as beautiful as the pictures. We were definitely not disappointed. We used the private air charter from San Jose to Tambor. I highly recommend this. It was an amazing experience and the looks on my family's as we took off were priceless. There is a $2.50 tax per person when you land and take off in Santa Teresa so be be prepared to pay it. We had some confusion because the person collecting said 250 per person so we thought it was $250 per person. We resolved that quickly.

We had Chef Alex cook for us twice during our stay. It was wonderful. The first time on the night of our arrival was especially relaxing after a day of travel. We sat poolside and relaxed while our wonderful meal was prepared.

Johnny, our concierge, was amazing! He arranged everything for us while there. Of the activities that we did, I would recommend the beachside horse back riding, the yoga, massage, and surf lessons. We had bad experiences with the Tortuga Island tour (not the fault of The Beach Estates staff) so we would skip that if we were to return.

We had been advised to limit the cash we brought with us by friends that travelled to Costa Rica in the past. That was a mistake. The ATM in Santa Teresa will only let you withdraw $100 per day. Johnny was able to assist me with going to the bank to get a larger withdrawal. The fees were extremely high though. Just be aware and bring all of the cash with you that you will need for the trip.

My only small complaint about our stay was with towel service from the housekeepers. We started out with 9 guests but only had 7 towels. You also have to pay extra to have towels exchanged daily. We asked for this towel service but never really got it. It would have been nice to have fresh clean towel each day, but we survived.

I would definitely book here again if we return to Costa Rica!

Epic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beachwood for 9 heavenly nights. The home and the property it sits upon are a living piece of art. It's so simple and casual, yet very elegant. Beyond the morning walks on the beach and the occasional dinner out, we found that we never wanted to leave the property. The staff are extremely accommodating and kept the home and grounds immaculate. Our concierge gave great suggestions for restaurants and brought in a fantastic masseuse. Our chef, Rob Essa, delighted us with several incredible lunches and dinners, mostly fresh fish caught the same day. We enjoyed the wildlife and were greeted by a troupe of howler monkeys that were mostly unimpressed by us. Sleep isn't the same since we've been home. The sound of the ocean, the comfortable bed and the sweet-smelling air are all that's missing.

The perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Simply said, our family’s experience at Sandy Lane was heavenly:

We’re architecture fanatics and we loved the open design that framed amazing ocean views

It’s the very best beachfront location in the village (no rocks in front so the kids could swim safely in the ocean and we all loved jumping in the pool afterwards)

The staff made everything easy for us (we heard about the fresh coconut milk from another review and Herman delivered!)

Our concierge Christian directed us to all the great local restaurants (big fans of Koji sushi) and coordinated all of our activities (Horses were brought to the house within a half hour of our request!)

All transportation was handled for us and it was absolutely seamless (we used their private charter service to fly to / from the beach).

We booked Sandy Lane based on our love of design and beachfront privacy…the added warmth of the staff and the low-key vibe of Santa Teresa made our family vacation truly magical.

Highly recommended for those seeking the very best.

perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We visited in July 2014 for a girls getaway - high school friends who've known each other forever. The house was perfect for a mixed group. We surfed, walked on the beach, spent ages in the pool, rented bikes, did yoga, played in the waves and enjoyed the local restaurants and attractions. Ahead of our trip, the owner (Dan) was very helpful in answering our many questions. Christian was a fabulous concierge, and Herman and Lubis looked after us and the house very well - leaving us our privacy, but being close enough to help us if needed. We had a daily yoga session in the living room/pool area with Monica - the views were almost too spectacular to believe, and the instruction was terrific. The Costa Rican restaurant at the end of the driveway is great. And our meal prepared by Billy was terrific too. The house and grounds are in terrific condition. Having en suite bathrooms in every bedroom meant that everyone was happy with their rooms. We didn't rent a car, and didn't miss having it. It's a lovely walk to the crossroads along the beach, an easy bike ride along the road, and there was a taxi available whenever we needed it. There are groceries and restaurants within easy walking distance. This location is highly recommended.

Peaches Nachos Beachwood!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Costa Rica, but first to the Nicoya Peninsula - 2 families of 4 with kids 10-14. Santa Teresa was a phenomenal little spot with more amenities and conveniences than I could've imagined given such a small community. The house layout was perfect (a full wing for each family with large common area between), and all of the people we interacted with were great…from Ugo’s attentiveness and ability to make things happen, to the family chef option (Billy) whose cooking and conversation we all really enjoyed! My kids learned to surf (instructor Drew was excellent, and the waves out front were perfect for it), Herman and the staff kept everything operational and clean for us throughout, kids had their favorite horse ride ever (got to full-on gallop down the beach and our guide found a baby turtle that he asked me to carry down and release in the water), set up beach volleyball and played in front several nights while the sun set behind us, kids caught 14 fish in 3 hours (loved eating sashimi for breakfast), we watched monkeys from the driveway, everyone LOVED the 25 minute charter flights into and out of Tambor vs. the tedious drive, Flora Blanca was a great place to hang out prior to and following check-in/out, rental car was very convenient, and the general vibe of the area was great from excellent restaurants to tons of yoga options for the girls. Aside from a disfiguring bruise suffered by a member of our crew from a serious surf wipe-out following a spectacular ride, everyone had a perfect time at Beachwood. Safe to say we’ll be back in the future!
