About Keith Acken

I have been coming to Playa Santa Teresa for 3 months of the year for more than 20 years. Surfing brought me to this great beach and the natural beauty and awesome waves kept me coming back. Eventually I purchased this land. I designed the house in 2010 and then built the house with local workers in 2011.

Why Keith Acken chose Santa Teresa Beach

The great location on the quiet North-West end of the beach in a residential neighborhood and being next to the best surf spots on the beach made the decision easy.

What makes this House unique

About a minutes walk to be on the beach or in the water! awesome second floor sun terrace for private sunbathing during the day and dining under the stars or stargazing at night. Dunk pool and jacuzzi that are solar heated to just take the chill out of the water. It does get quite hot here in the dry season and a heated pool or jacuzzi is not necessary. Dunk in the pool in the afternoon to cool off and use the jacuzzi to relax and massage muscles after surfing.

                                                            • Our pool is located between the two wings of the house and is basically indoors. The ocean facing side is open with wrought iron for safety. The steps to the second floor are located on the opposite side as is our weeping wall garden. There is a huge skylight over the steps and another large skylight over the pool along with great ventilation. Magnetic Door chimes/alarms are available on the sliding glass doors to the pool area and the front door for child monitoring/safety. In the Dry season the pool area is a great place to get out of the direct sun and cool off in the pool. In the Green season our pool can be comfortably used even if it is raining. A real bonus if you have kids with you! There are 2 outdoor showers. One in front of the house for when you return from the beach, and one on the second floor for when you are tanning or using the pool area.

                                                              We were two families visiting Santa Teresa for the first time, one family from Colorado and one from Sweden. We stayed at Sandy Bottoms for 5 nights

                                                              and loved our stay there. The property is located on the north end of the Santa Teresa beach. It was honestly a 3 minute walk to the beach on a nice sandy road, in the shade!! The house has 2 parallel units connected with open space that has lovely long table for sharing meals and jaccuzi/dunking pool. Each unit has 2 large bedrooms, great showers and perfect kitchen for preparing meals. The house is located near Blue Surf Sanctuary and they were

                                                              extremely helpful with various local information, booking restaurants, and surf lessons. It is an easy walk into town and we rented ATV which was also fun for the teenagers and for some excursions. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to visit Santa Teresa, be away from the busy town, and have the absolute best access to the beach, waves and fun!! There is also a restaurant at the end of the path before the beach, Rocomar-delicious!! We arrived at night unfortunately, would print google map and know the left hand turn for the house is at the Blue Surf Sanctuary turnoff, probably 1/2-3/4 mile from the grocery store.

                                                              Great trip

                                                              I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to plan a trip in Santa Teresa. It is ideally located just steps from the beach and is also near all of the good restaurants and bars. The house is maintained very well, with extremely comfortable bedrooms and living quarters, as well as two fully equipped kitchens. There is also a jacuzzi and dunk pool to use after a long day on the beach. The owner is very helpful and responsive to all inquiries.
