Relaxing in paradise with a long stretch of private, white sand beach on a beautiful bay. Sound like you? Stepping a few paces along the beach to enjoy a pampering massage, or lunch and dinner on a restaurant terrace overlooking the water. Sound like you? No traffic outside your door, just the sound of lapping waves. Like a swim in a cool blue water hole just a few minutes walk along the beach? Sound like you? On a budget? Then Sands Beach Cottage could be the tonic you are seeking. Read on!

The space
Sands Beach Cottage is in a fabulous, peaceful location inviting you to unwind from the stresses of everyday life. Soft white sand and crystal clear blue warm water are perfect for relaxing, swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. You may see dugongs and turtles in the bay. Stretch out on the clean white sand, or sit back on the deck with a glass of wine and absorb the natural beauty that surrounds you. A 10 minute stroll along the beach will bring you to one of Santo's beautiful, refreshing freshwater swimming holes at Lope Lope. A couple of minutes in the other direction is a holiday resort with a la carte restaurant and a day spa offering a holiday pamper. (Bookings are essential.) We offer a complimentary pickup from the airport with a chance to get provisions in town on the way to your holiday home. (Please note this complimentary service is for arrival only). Please note also, Sands only caters for couples. No children, babies or pets. We recommend you bring your mobile to book tours, taxis (remember Sands is 15 minutes out of town) or dining as there is no landline. You will be provided with 1GB internet Sim card for your tablet or phone free of charge. The cottage comprises a bedroom/dining area, small, basic kitchenette with microwave and bathroom with shower. Gas hot water. There's a good sized fridge. There is an electric grill for outside BBQs. The cottage is quite airy with louvre windows north and south and a ceiling fan.

Guest access
A 40 metre private stretch of white sand beach, and a bay with swimming and snorkeling at all tides. Two kayaks are available.

Other things to note
Sands Beach Cottage is 15 minutes drive out of town on an excellent road. A car is recommended. However, there are buses heading to town usually early in the day on the main road five minutes walk away, and if you've booked an excursion the tour operator will pick you up from the cottage. A sim card will be provided for your tablet or phone. The first Gbyte usage is free of charge. Full details are provided in the cottage about how to get access. The cottage and the house, where I live, are the only two units of accommodation on the property. Sun lounges, a sit in hammock, electric BBQ and kayaks are provided for your enjoyment.
There is no TV.
The property is gated from the road and fenced on three sides, the fourth being open to your beach.
The property is an adults only escape.

Sooky dog lover. Like to see people enjoying themselves. This property is a homestay in true AIRBNB fashion, not a commercial operation.
