We are both still working and at times life becomes rather hectic trying to juggle work, volunteer activities and keeping up with our family. We treasure the time we can get away to kick back and relax - no better way than to head to Costa Rica.

Annette Gillis purchased this condo in 2011

We traveled to Costa Rica in 2010 and fell in love with the country and the people. The natural beauty of the country can take your breath away. We love the quiet beauty of Tamarindo, the easy beach walks into town and sitting on the balcony overlooking the Pacific. Is is the ultimate in relaxation. Sitting on the deck in the evening watching the sun set over the Pacific with a glass of wine in hand is to be savored.

The unit is on the beach and if you like to walk there are miles of unspoiled beaches to meander along, watch the surfers, try it your self or gather sea shells. Great restaurants at reasonable prices are close by.

Fabulous vacation spot!

We recently rented this condo with other extended family members for our first trip to Costa Rica. We had a fabulous time thanks in large part to the incredible condo. It had everything we could possibly want or need. The balcony was great; it's where we ate all our meals and spent hours relaxing overlooking the ocean. The sunsets are amazing. Inside, the condo is spectacular. Spacious, well furnished, etc. Each room has it's own big bathroom. We cooked all our meals in the condo and appreciated the top of the line BBQ. The building has only 20 units and most of the time we hardly saw anyone else. The pool is terrific and the whole building is beautifully maintained. We will definitely return! The condo is a bit away from the core area of Tamarindo which was exactly what we were looking for as it made for a very quiet place to stay and a bit off the beaten track, yet still close to town. We rented a car and shopped at a supermarket just outside the other side of town which was better than the smaller store within walking distance. We went on a couple of excursions and were picked up at the condo by local drivers who were very friendly and knowledgeable. The excursion to the river for a boat ride was a definite highlight! We also went zip lining. The photos on the website accurately showed the property's amenities. Overall, this was a great vacation in a superb property.

Owner's Response: Maggie,
I am so pleased you and the family had a great stay at Crystal Sands. One of the great advantages of staying at Crystal Sands is the close proximity to the town of Tamarindo yet still having a sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of this busy little town.
We welcome the opportunity to host you again in the near future.

Outstanding Stay in Tamarindo

  • Submitted: Mar 2, 2014

We have just returned from our third visit to Tamarindo and it was definately one of the best. Annette and Tom's condo exceeded our every wish. It checked all the boxes - beautiful views, spacious and beautifully decorated, a perfect location between Playa Langosta and Playa Tamarindo, and sunny days. The six of us were very comfortable in this 3 bedroom which had all the top amenities we could want just steps from the beach. Although the beach directly in front of the condo was not great for swimming, it was a short walk to Langosta where you can swim although it does have strong surf. The benefit to the beach location in front of the condo is that you had it all to yourself most of the time! The pool was also very nice and hardly anyone using it so we felt it was out own personal space.

The staff at RPM were very helpful taking care of all our needs, even making a last minute change for taxi pickup from the airport due to bad weather conditions up north and also arranging for a rental car which was delivered right to the condo!

Since this was not our first visit to Costa Rica we did not do many excursions this time but we did take a river safari in Palo Verde where we saw amazing wildlife and also hiked the mud pot trails of Rincon de Viejo. We actually spent a good deal of time hanging out on the balcony enjoying the spectacular views.

The restaurant scene in Tamarindo did not disappoint with so many options we did not have enough time to hit all on our list. We were at a walkable distance to town and also across the street from Cala Luna and Sueno del Mar both with great restaurants. There was also a little market within an easy walk to stock up on basics.

All and all, we had a very memorable stay and thank Annette and Tom for opening their beautiful home for us to enjoy. We will definately be back!

Owner's Response: Janet,
We too love Crystal Sands and the area of Langosta Beach. Watching the surf and the sunsets are amazing and one never gets tired of it. January this year we also had the thrill of watching a pod of whales breach just off the shore for about 30 minutes. So you will need to return soon to check out more of the restaurants in Tamarindo, relax on the deck and further explore.

We look forward to you and your family making that return visit in teh very near future.

Sunsets on the ocean

The view of the ocean is my favorite part of staying here along with the sound of the waves of the ocean. For my husband and I ,the verandah was one of our favorite spots, relaxing and enjoying coffee, meals and a glass of wine. The location is within a 10 min walk to great restaurants and town. The Condo is very well kept and comfortable with 3 very spacious bedrooms and living areas. The Kitchen is fully stocked and overall the property is very clean. We booked activities such as zip-lining, river cruise, horse back riding and waterslides, it was a memorable 10 days.

A Perfect Vacation!

We've been to several 'beach' destinations in both Hawaii and Mexico, so wanted to try something different. We've heard people rave about Costa Rica, so decided to give it a try. Our family of 4 (kids 12 and 14) travelled with another family of 4, who also rented at Crystal Sands. We have stayed in some very nice accommodations in the past; I can say that we were all thrilled with our accommodations and we all agreed that Costa Rica was our best destination yet. The condo was terrific; very spacious and well-equipped. The balcony was perfect for sipping wine while watching the sun set over the ocean. The beach in front of the condo was beautiful, but not great for swimming. It was very interesting, though, to explore all of the volcanic rock formations on that part of the beach. A 5-10 minute walk, either right or left, along the beach, led to great areas for swimming, jumping in the waves, boogie-boarding, or surfing. The water was 'bath tub' warm --- we spent many hours in it!

The town of Tamarindo was a really pleasant surprise. We were there at the busiest time of year, so it was quite busy, but nothing like Maui at the same time of year! There were so many excellent restaurants all of which were reasonably priced (in some cases we were amazed with the quality we got for our money). We ran out of time before trying all that we wanted to --- guess we'll have to go back! There is so much local seafood and produce available; it must be a chef's dream to cook there.

We worked with the very accommodating property management company, RPM, to arrange excursions, including an estuary tour and zip-lining. Both were very reasonably priced and received "2 thumbs up" from everyone in our group.

The locals were wonderful. Everyone, from the security staff at the condo complex (yes, there is security, but we NEVER felt unsafe), the taxi drivers, the excursion operators, the grocery store staff, etc. was great. We befriended a shuttle driver (Jose) who was one of the kindest, hard-working, helpful people we've ever met while on vacation.

The new airport at Liberia is well-run, and is very clean --- it made for a good first impression! One word of advice: Costa Rica has a departure tax of $29/person. You can pay that tax at the bank in Tamarindo or at the airport. Pay it at the bank to avoid the long lineup at the airport!

We've been home for 24 hours, and I've already been online researching our next trip!

40th birthday celebration, family vacation and thanksgiving - All in One!

This luxury 3 bedroom (all master suites it seemed) unit was unbelievable! The beautiful panoramic ocean views were breath taking. You will see the sun rise and the sunset's are memorable. We dined outside on the deck daily. The beach is steps away with waves crashing at your feet! The kitchen had every appliance you can think of (and we did alot of cooking), as if you were a profession chef. There are many trails to take romantic or family walks that will lead you to the ocean. The pool at the condo was also a great time to refresh after being on the beach or in town all day. The town of Tamarindo is walking distance with many shops, dining and excursions. The condo is perfectly located to do as much exploring as you wish! The unit itself was extremely clean, had all necessities and really comfortable. When we return to stay in Tamarindo again, we will absolutely stay in this unit. My family, myself and friends were more than please. It was pure BLISS!
