We welcome lovely individuals who are kind, open-minded and embrace the concept of community.
We offer a great atmosphere for single travellers to meet and socialise, and we welcome people of all sexual orientations.

Once an abandoned building, Sandino has been refitted by hand by the owner Michael. Now a cosy eco-friendly place. Our decor and furniture are mainly made from repurposed/recycled items, imparting our indoor spaces with a cosy, rustic charm. We harvest rainwater for our garden and mostly utilise environmentally friendly cleaning products, as we aspire to continue to be more planet friendly. Sandino is open from the last weekend in April until the last weekend in September. We close for Winter
