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.

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
There are 6 of us in my family and we had seen pictures of the condo on vrbo and I had expectations of it being a very nice place. Well, when we arrived, it blew us away. The place was so spacious and so nice, with all the amenities that you would expect. The bedrooms were nicely decorated, each with its own A/C unit a fan and a big-screen tv, and walk-in closets, and their own bathrooms. The dining room area was also very spacious. The kitchen was fully stacked with appliances and everything else that we needed. The views from the balcony were spectacular.

The property itself is very clean and just a few yards from the beach. The pool is kept very clean and well maintained. The staff at the gate was also very friendly and courteous.

We walked to Tamarindo several times during the week that we were there, it's about a 20-minute walk. We walked both along the beach as well as the road that leads to the condo. Tamarindo is a great beach town, lots of shops and restaurants. We were there during World Cup and it seemed everyone in town was tuned into the games when they were on. There was great energy everywhere as Costa Rica advanced to the second round of the WC. The beach is awesome too! You can go fifty yards into the water and it's still only waist high.

Thanks Annette for sharing your condo. This was a very special vacation for my family and we really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Ernie,
I am so pleased to hear your time with your family at Crystal Sands was enjoyable. And after your touring the previous week it is the perfect spot to kick back and relax at your own pace.

For the rest of us keeping an eye on the soccer I can only imagine the excitement when Costa Rica made it into the semi's. The town must have been hopping.

Walking into Tamarindo is so easy and we always enjoy the restaurant stops along the way to take the opportunity to enjoy a cool one.

We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit to beautiful Costa Rica and they three times a charm, starting with our stay at Crystal Sands. This condo is truly one of the nicest place we have been far exceeding our expectations. The spacious and elegant interior accommodated the 6 of us easily and had a killer view off the huge balcony overlooking beautiful Playa Langosta. This part of the beach is rocky and not great for swimming but that limited the number of people so we had the beach to ourselves most of the week. If you walk down the beach towards the Barcelo resort there is a wide beach great for swimming and surfing. Go the other way for about a 15 minute walk and you are in the Charming town of Tamarindo with it's many restaurants and watering holes along the beach.

Crystal Sands is a gated property with lovely grounds,underground parking and nice pool deck. There are two restaurants close to the complex located in adjacent resorts both serving great menus. There are also many great restaurants in Tamarindo. Or you can opt for using the gourmet kitchen and eat on the balcony with that killer view. We really did not want to leave lingering long after our morning coffee.

But the adventures of Costa Rica still beckoned. A little over an hour we were at Rincon de la Vieja where we hiked through dense jungles and arid volcanic bubbling mud pots. Another day we took a tour with Get Lost in Costa Rica to Palo Verde National Park for a river safari where we saw many monkeys, crocodiles, birds including a couple scarlet macaws, a truly magical trip.

The staff at RPM was great to work with everything arranged from airport pick ups to providing a rental car drop off. We look forward to returning to the Gillis's beautiful home at Crystal Sands soon!

UNFORGETTABLE VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a lot of hours trying to find just the perfect place to stay while visiting Playa Langosta for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children ages 12 and 7). Once I found this condo I knew my search was over. From the moment we opened the door we fell in love with it. Annette and Tom have thought about every single detail and it shows all throughout. The condo is really spacious, welcoming and luxurious. Another nice feature is the underground parking space. You don't need to lose any sleep thinking about your rental car being safe. The pool has a jacuzzi, grill and we had it for ourselves most of the time. It was the perfect place for cooling off. Although the beach right in front of the condo is not recommended for swimming due to its rocky nature, it is a lot of fun to explore it during the low tide. You can walk or drive to many nearby restaurants and/or beaches. The grounds around Crystal Sands are impecably taken care of. The location of the building is just perfect. We drove to Tamarindo and Avellanas but walking to nearby beaches is also an option. The sunsets were the absolutely gorgeous and you can enjoy them from the very spacious balcony. I could keep going on and on about this place but I will end by saying that no one in my family wanted to leave and we can't wait to be back! Thank you Annette and Tom!

Owner's Response: I think our favorite spot is also the deck of the condo where you can watch those impressive sunsets and the surf. We never tire of the scenery and the sounds of the ocean surf.

Thank you for your kind comments and we too look forward to hosting you and your family on your next trip to Costa Rica.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR A RELAXING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed here during our week long vacation. We were in Costa Rica for a wedding. The location was excellent. Right on the ocean and just a 15 min walk from Tamarindo. It was quiet and relaxing. The size of the condo was perfect. We had 1 couple and 2 single adults. Each having our own bathroom and spacious bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped. We only cooked breakfast and lunches but I'm sure it would have worked well for dinner as well. The deck facing the ocean was the best feature. Very spacious and comfortable. The air condition units in each room were also very appreciated. We visited the resturant at Cala Luna several times. It was only a 1 min walk from the condo and had excellent food and service. The facility was very secure and the guard staff were very pleasant. The little pool was a nice option for a refreshing dip and everything is very well maintained. The owners (Annette and Tom) are amazing. Very prompt at addressing questions and provided several tips to help us during our stay. The property managers (RPM) were also extremely helpful. Definitely recommend this property for a group vacation.

Owner's Response: Alicia,
Weddings in Costa Rica are those life time events that are so special and memorable. We too were fortunate to enjoy a beach-side wedding this year with the sun setting as the couple said their vows.

The deck is also a favorite spot for us as we savor that morning Costa Rican coffee while watching the surf and beach activities. Additionally, we never tire of watching the beautiful and colorful sunsets. Thus adding to the memories of another blissful day on Langosta Beach.

Looking forward to hosting you again in the future.

FABULOUS VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
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.
