The Space


The Sea Ranch is a beach front house just 5 minutes away from Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa. The house is located at the head of a long bay that has ocean views and tide pools in front that are perfect for relaxing.

The house is made of tropical hardwood with fine tile work reflecting the owner’s unique mix of individualism, and idealism.

Downstairs the living room has folding doors the length of the ocean-facing wall. The house opens up to a covered patio that is an ideal spot to enjoy the afternoon trade winds. Next to the living room is a well-equipped kitchen and a full bathroom.

Upstairs is the large master bedroom with a panoramic ocean view and en suite bathroom. Just behind the house you will find the second bedroom in a small annex. The master bedroom has a double bed and the annex to single beds. There is also a single bed which can be used in the living room or upstairs at your convenience. Hot water throughout is provided by solar energy.

Sleeps four in two bedrooms, double beds, 1/ 1/2 baths.

The Sandcastle is a a truly unique and private experience with the most fantastic tranquil sea views in a perfect central location close to the center of Santa Teresa. We love our house and we promise you will too...

  • My friend Jaime and I arrived in Malpais and Santa Theresa to surf and relax and Adam's place was perfect for the quiet we were looking for. A 15-20 minute walk (or a few mins by car) from las cruces we were distanced but still
    Close enough to town to access the amentities that the town provides. The actual home is beautiful, wood, and very beautiful and simple in design. We enjoyed waking up on the ocean and being able to enjoy the serenity. I would absolutely return to stay at adam's.. We had a vehicle which made travel to and from the house much easier and the isolation was so nice after a long day of surf, perfect place to reflect and read.

  • Dies ist unsere dritte Reise nach Costa Rica, wir hatten inzwischen so einige Unterkünfte in allen möglichen Standarts-das Beachfront House ist definitiv unter den Top 2! Kein "Luxus" im gängigen Sinne-und doch Luxus pur- wenn man Wert legt auf ansolute Privatsphäre und einen Ausblick wie gemalt!
    Durch den eher schroffen und felsigen Strand in Malpais hat sich diese Ecke was unberührtes bewahrt-die drei Leute die dort mal vorbeistolpern merkt man überhaupt nicht!
    Links der nächste Nachbar ist ein ausgezeichnetes Soda wo wohl heimlich ein Sternekoch wirkt...10 min nach rechts gelaufen fangen wahnsinnige Sandstrände an an denen sich grundsätzlich nur eine Handvoll Leute aufhalten-davor nicht den Naturpool bei Ebbe übersehen! Also alle die es ruhiger mögen nach Malpais-möglichst ins Beachfront House-zum Trubel nach Santa Teresa brauchts nur 5 min im Auto!
    Adam haben wir nicht persönlich getroffen, doch der Mailverkehr war wirklich sehr nett und er hat uns recht spontan aufgenommen!
    Wir haben uns herrlich entspannt! Pura Vida!

  • My husband & I stayed here with another couple and their one year old son for a week. We loved it! The house is located a few minutes drive away from Santa Teresa where the sandy beaches, grocery stores and restaurants are located so I would recommend renting a car if you decide to stay here. Right next to the house there (email hidden) with a pool and good food, we made regular visits here as it was a great spot for their son to play. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing and woke up to the howler monkeys, who visited us on several occasions! The closest place to go for a good swim in the ocean is a 10 minute walk towards Santa Teresa. The rocks and waves just out front of the house are too rough to go in but you can cool off in the pool nearby or the out-door shower at the house. It's very private and has a beautiful view of the ocean. The house is just as you see in the pictures, very nice and comfy. Caretakers Dustin & Chelsea were available whenever we needed anything. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for the ultimate relaxing vacation in this great area of Costa Rica! Thanks to Adam for being a great host.
