About Syd and Lynne

I purchased this wonderful condo as construction was just beginning. It was purchased primarily for my personal enjoyment and it is maintained and furnished to the standard of my own home . I love the time I spend there and I know anyone who stays there will have an outstanding vacation.

Syd and Lynne purchased this condo in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Syd your condo is absolutely beautiful with a great layout and we loved the quiet location in Langosta as compared to Tamarindo .The staff at the complex was friendly and dealt with any minor issues or questions we had immediately . When I met you at your house I mentioned that the idea was for my mother to sit on the balcony and have her tea and enjoy the view and that is exactly what she did and loved it .

On a side note when I dropped my mother off at the airport to return to B.C. she began to cry and thanked me for taking her as she thought she would never see that part of the world . In the days since my brother and aunt have and said she has not stopped talking about the trip and is showing everyone her pictures. My son was bugging us to return to Costa Rica again when we were only 8 days into the trip. He took up boogie boarding and now loves it.

I can answer your question with a simple "yes" , it was up to our expectations but I do not think that would truly show how we felt about the trip and the condo.

On behalf of myself and my family thanks for the rental and we will be back .

Simply Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday with our kids and their significant others. We were 6 adults and had more than plenty of room and privacy in this gorgeous and spacious condo that looks out over the ocean. Beautifully appointed, warm decor, the kind of place you don't want to leave because you could just hang out on the balcony all day, it's just so inviting. But we are the type who can't sit still, so we did loads of day trips. RPM property management is outstanding. They will help you with everything you need. Syd is superb, and is on call at all times. We'd go back in a flash. Can't say enough good things. It's magical.....

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

This property is luxurious, spacious and very well maintained. We were there with 5 adults and 2 children and the space did not seem cramped at all. The pictures depict the actual space very well. The beach and estuary in front of this property were our favorite among all the beaches we visited in and around Tamarindo. Thank you, Syd and Lynne, for a wonder stay and putting up with my million questions before the trip!

For my husband & I, Syd & Lynne's condo in Playa Langosta provides everything we could ever want for our annual rest & relaxation vacation. Condo comfortable, Owners incredible people, Location provides beautiful beaches, great weather ( during our stays in Jan & Feb not a single drop of rain), peace & quiet yet close for restaurants in Tamarindo. Will repeat review from last year. Sad to leave but only consolation is we will be back next year.

Note: Not suitable for persons with mobility issues. There is no elevator and condo is on third floor with 1 level of steps to street level and 2 levels to pool & beach level.

We have rented many properties throughout the world and this property ranks as one of the best. The Horizontes del Mar complex is a small immaculately maintained complex overlooking the ocean with gorgeous sunsets every day and 24 hour security. Although beach is rocky directly in front of condo, long sandy beaches are within a few steps. Playa Langosta ideal quiet residential area with small grocery store, several restaurants but only a $5 taxi ride or walk into bustling tourist town of Tamarindo with many restaurants, shops, activities and American style grocery store (Auto Mercado). The condo is tastefully decorated with extremely comfortable furniture throughout, well equipped (WiFi, BBQ, beach chairs, lots of comfy patio furniture, etc etc) and has 2 balconies with fabulous views of the ocean. Layout of the condo with 3 ensuite bedrooms is well suited for families or couples travelling together. Photos and descriptions are representative of the condo – what you see is what you get. Lynne and Syd are trustworthy receptive and welcoming hosts and we can't wait for our next visit.

Paradise in Playa Langosta

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived for our family Christmas holiday, we knew we had been very fortunate in picking the place to stay. Everything at Horizontes del Mar was first class. The security guards were great, the pool was great, the view was fantastic. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and were great about answering questions before our trip. And the SUNSETS--well we didn't have to go any further than the balcony. Playa Langosta is just outside Tamarindo and so it is away from all the crowds but close enough to get to town. A nearby grocery store and Pizza restaurant (rated at the time as #3 in Tamarindo for good reason) were added bonuses. The balcony off the master bedroom upstairs was the perfect place for morning coffee. We were also impressed with all the supplies you needed to cook at home. If we are fortunate to return some day, we won't look any further than this property.

Stunning property right on the water

  • 5 of 5

The location of the penthouse was perfect, on a quiet and very private street away from the noise of the town but a 10 minute drive away. It's right on the water on a gorgeous stretch of beach with many volcanic tide pools to explore, however not swimmable. Swimmable beaches are available a leisurely 10 minute walk toward Tamarindo. The city of Tamarindo itself is very Americanized, touristy and busy; finding authentic Costa Rican culture is difficult in this area. On the plus, there are many tourist activities to do. Staying at this property was an excellent choice, since we found the town overly crowded and touristy. We enjoyed a nice balance with a quiet, private home base.

The penthouse itself is stunning and in a safe, gated complex. It easily accommodated the two families with small kids in our group. It's very spacious, comfortable and elegantly decorated in tropical Tommy Bahama style. It had everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. The pictures don't do it justice.We happened to catch a bit of Hurricane Otto. The owners were very protective of us and gave us updates, making us feel very safe and welcomed.

*TIP: It rains all the time in Costa Rica, so come prepared with a rain slicker/umbrella and waterproof cases for electronics!

***Unrelated but useful information: a car is highly necessary to fully enjoy Costa Rica. However, they are notorious for ripping off Americans, particularly Economy rentals, via Expedia. Our bill almost tripled due to Economy lying to us about insurance requirements. Save yourself a headache and purchase international rental insurance stateside and research the legal requirements for insurance.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Rachel. If you walk away from the town just a few minutes is a fantastic estuary and gorgeous sandy beach . Generally the rainy season in Tamarindo ends by early November with no rain until May but this year has been an exception. Thanks again and we hope to see you again. Syd
