The Beach Estates experience combines the best elements of a Boutique Hotel with the luxury of complete privacy. The Estate appeals to those seeking the ease of private beach access. The comforts and amenities of The Estates and our infinity pools are always just steps from the beachfront gates. The Estate homes' open design frames the absolute tranquility of the surrounding 3 acres of lush gardens, swaying palms and stunning ocean views.

We warmly provide daily housekeeping and both child care and chef services can be easily arranged. In addition, The Beach Estate's pilot is available to fly our guests in from anywhere in Costa Rica!
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 phones...no 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!
The Phillips Family
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.
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.
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.
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!
Traveling to a foreign county can be stressful especially when visiting such a remote destination such as Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Fortunately this was not a concern for us as prior to our arrival, Ugo the coordinator at Beachwood attended to all transportation needs which included our charter flight (great option) and car rental which was waiting for us at the airstrip in Tambor. An easy 40 minute and we arrived in heaven.
Having previously traveled to Santa Teresa I knew how beautiful the area was but I certainly did not expect the Beachwood property to be so amazing. Although the website pictures look great they simply don't come close to representing how incredible this property is. We were absolutely blown away. I felt like a movie star staying here.
The property is in front of the best surfing beach in the area but is very uncrowded at the same time. Daily activities included morning jogs on the beach (returning to daily breakfast delivered to the house), ATV adventures, hiking to waterfalls, multiple surfing sessions, walks to amazing beachfront restaurants and lots of relaxing. Within walking distance of everything in the area and still there were days where we had the entire beach to ourselves. The views are unparalleled and I would venture to say this is the most beautiful beach front property in all of Santa Teresa.
As for service I can not thank Ugo and his staff enough. Our every need was attended to. We had multiple sunset massages on the property and hired a chef for a romantic dinner on our last night which were all incredible. Anything we wanted was just a call away while maintaining an absolute sense of safety and privacy.
Bottom line this was the most incredible vacation we have ever had and plan to make this an annual trip.
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.
