“Gorgeous house on a perfect beach”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My family of 7 stayed at Sandy Lane for a week. Our vacation was perfect in every way. The house, grounds, and pool are beautiful and well maintained. The perfect beach is steps away from the house. Lubis came in every day and left the house spotless, and Herman kept the grounds immaculate. Sofi and Dan (the owner) arranged all of our excursions and gave us recommendations for fantastic restaurants. In the evenings we would play frisbee on the beach and watch the breathtaking sunsets. Sunsets in one direction, rainbows in the other, it was like a movie. Days we spent zip-lining, riding horses on the beach, riding 4-wheelers, and soaking up the sun. Paradise. Pure paradise. Do yourself a favor and stay here. You will not regret it.

“For Those Seeking the Best House on the Beach!”
Reviewed April 17, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

people found this review helpful

Let us first say that we are not generally the trip review types, however after experiencing the joys of Sandy Lane, we felt we needed to share our observations with others who may be thinking of visiting Santa Teresa / Mal Pais.

As we began our search for “the best beach house in the village”, we started by asking some friends who happen to live in Santa Teresa. They told us to stop the search with “Sandy Lane Estate”. After spending a week here and looking at the other options, we can’t thank them enough for their advice!

We wanted direct private beach access, open views to the waves, contemporary architecture, a pool and most importantly…we wanted to walk in front of our house and swim without having to worry about rocks. Sandy Lane provided all of this and so much more.

The “more” came with how Sandy Lane’s amazing staff took such good care of us. Ugo (the concierge) went above and beyond to help us experience every possible adventure. Every request was delivered upon with a warm “beach casual” professionalism. The caretakers (Herman & Lubis) maintained the home and grounds beautifully and were always there to help with anything (Herman’s daily deliveries of fresh coconut juice were a family favorite!).

Without a doubt, the best advice we can share is that location is everything in this little beach village. The soft white sand beach in front of Sandy Lane is the most coveted by far. Mal Pais has a very rocky shoreline and Hermosa has darker / harder sand and requires long walks to the rock free swim zones.

There are many nice looking houses up in the hills, but getting to the beach and trying to find parking and access is a hassle we did not want to deal with.

Another big bonus was the number of great restaurants near Sandy Lane. We went out most every night and had incredible fresh & exotic meals prepared by “surfer chefs” from around the world. Everything was delicious and healthy!

The hunt for a great rental place can be confusing and not everyone has a local friend who they can go to for advice. We hope this helps those in search of a beach house that is truly special!
