About Sandy Costanzo
Americana... By the Sea was our family beach house for many years. We now live in the area full time and continue to maintain this house as if we still occupy it. We are both retired school administrators who served in the public schools of Philadelphia and the surrounding suburban districts for many years. Upon retirement in 2009, we decided to make the Jersey Shore our permanent home – and never regretted the decision. While retired from the educational community, we are now deep into our second careers. Matt serves as Retirement Counselor for an investment firm. Sandy has created “Sandyland Properties” and is busy acquiring and renovating properties for rental. Sandyland Properties specializes in making accommodations for those interested in short term stays in Atlantic City and has already earned high marks.

Why Sandy Costanzo chose Atlantic City
Welcome to Sandyland, where accommodations for short term stays in Atlantic City are our specialty. The original home, Americana…By the Sea was purchased by us in 2003 and served as our family beach house for many years. It was a wonderful get-away from the hustle and bustle of city life in the Philadelphia area. Since 2009 we have opened this home as well as the Grand Belle…By the Sea, Delancy Place and 2 beautifully appointed apartments for guests from all over the world to enjoy. We still live in the area and continue to maintain the houses as if we occupy them ourselves! We have had a lot of fun collecting bits of Atlantic City nostalgia throughout the years and it can be seen in each of these houses in unique and attractive ways. Original prints from the very early days of Atlantic City’s history can be seen throughout the homes. An original 1920’s Rolling Chair looks out at unbelievable Ocean and Boardwalk views and Miss America memorabilia are just some of the features that are found homes at Americana…By the Sea. The Grand Belle boasts an original Bathhouse from the turn of the Century which has been lovingly restored. Delancy Place, one of the more recently built homes (1920), is a favorite for Bachelor and Bachelorette parties with a large regulation size pool table and a Speakeasy feel that cannot be denied! Our guests at these beautifully restored homes are truly treated as "guests in our own home". As we did for so many years, we want them to also enjoy the beauty and tranquility of our southern New Jersey beaches and the many entertainment opportunities that Atlantic City has to offer. This is just one of the many reasons for the existence of Sandyland. Come “Down to the Shore” and join us!

Great Big Home Perfect for the Beach
Lots of space and everything you need in a home at the beach for a large group.
Sandy has a wealth of information about the area. Loved the kitchen , outdoor porches/eating areas. Loved the shower/beach storage room to unload all of the sand right at the house.
The garage disposal broke during dinner prep one evening. I messaged Sandy and instantly she replied that help was on its way. Wow!!!
Had a great stay
We were 3 families that spent the weekend at the house and it was very comfortable. It is walkable to the beach and has ocean views from the terrace. The kitchen was very well equipped.
Clean house. Large enough for a group.
Very clean house. Great location. Easy to get ahold of the owner.
Beautiful home, fair price
The house is fantastic and in a great location. A bit older, but that provides a unique beach feel we loved.
Great off season mini vacation
A couple of minor problems in the home that were addressed immediately. Sandy is superb and will certainly see to it that you have all the comforts of home. Sandy has designated a gentlemen to tend to the property and he couldn’t have been any nicer and a wealth of knowledge too. Will certainly visit that home again and some of their other properties too. The house is a beautiful older home with a modern touch. There are a significant amount of steps to reach the top floor so save that floor for the young at heart and physically fit. You can always take a.break on the middle level and hang out at the pool table. Nonetheless there is plenty of space to spread out. This home comes highly recommended.
Very clean , well maintained older home.
Plenty of room for 4 cheerleaders and the 10 family members that support them. The house was short ride to Atlantic City convention center as well as amenities. Definitely would rent this home again or any from this wonderful owner.
