Santo Beach House is beyond the traditional holiday house vacation by providing guests with a wide range of luxury resort services, amenities and activities. A private oasis created for intimate gatherings of up to 12 family members or friends.
From its envious position , this island home offers the splendour of tropical gardens combined with best seascape of Espiritu Santo. Every room in this five bedroom, two-bathroom escape has luxury appointments to provide guests with the finest traditions of island living enhanced by its proximity to gourmet restaurants and resorts.
When you first walk onto the property, you are greeted by a wide array of vibrant island flowers and palm trees as the gentle island breezes guide you into the home.
The atmosphere at Santo Beach House is an easy tropical elegance, with soaring timber cathedral ceiling in the central living area, bar area for afternoon cocktail hour, and authentic island artwork.
A fully equipped gourmet kitchen allows you to indulge your culinary fantasies, while spacious bedrooms with louvre windows allow gentle sea breezes to provide a restful sleep. Outside, you will find steps leading down to the tropical garden and access to your own section of private beach and jetty. Slip off the dock into the warm shallow waters which are renowned for their volcanic healing properties or use the kayaks to explore the bay, and you might just come across our resident Dugong, and many sea turtles. Or simply lounge around and enjoy the natural beauty that the surrounds have to offer. At Santo Beach House, outdoor living is fully embraced through a fully covered wrap- around verandah /porch adorned by hand woven hammocks and hammock chairs. Take your meals in the outdoor dining area and enjoy the sunset from the jetty. However you plan to spend your vacation, Santo Beach House is the ideal location to slip into "Island time" and begin your adventures in the South Pacific.

The residence was lovingly built and has been enjoyed by the owners as a holiday house for many years and is only newly opened for visitors.
House rules are simple-just treat it as you would your own home, although we do ask you refrain from smoking indoors.
Passionate about travel, I discovered Santo by accident 4 years ago by being fortunate enough to stay at the beach house and it was love at first sight.
With Santo's wild beauty and Jurassic park scenery that I cannot imagine any other tropical island holiday could ever compete. The locals are the most friendly I have ever met, the food is truly organic as subsistence farming cannot afford any costly extras and the ex-pats (predominantly from Australia and New Zealand) who reside on the island are only too happy to give you tips and help you have an amazing holiday. Everyone who lives here or has visited, on the one hand, wants to share this magical island and promote tourism, but on the other, wants to keep it a great big secret so it stays just the way it is!
