About Syd and Lynne

My wife and I vacation in Costa Rica about 3 times a year and absolutely love the country, the people and the beauty of the Tamarindo region

Syd and Lynne purchased this condo in 2013

Why Syd and Lynne chose Guanacaste

This is by far the most luxurious condo in the area. There will never be anything built on the beach of this size and location again.

Costa Rican condo on the Pacific Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to celebrate our 50th anniversary with our daughter, son-in-law and 4 lively grandchildren under the age of 10, and also be on the water. This beautiful condo met all our requirements. It slept 8, on the water with beautiful Pacific ocean views. The beach in front was rocky and not good for swimming but within minutes there were great swimming areas. For us it was perfect. We had the upstairs bedroom which was like a retreat. We enjoyed our early morning coffee on the balcony and watching the ocean with the many birds that came when the tide was low. The kids enjoyed the pool. The only downer was that the hot tub was not in working order so we were unable to enjoy that. Otherwise, a great condo, filled with all the amenities one would expect from an upscale vacation condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Georgina. THE HOT TUB IS NOW WORKING PERFECTLY A BRAND NEW CONTROL SYSTEM WAS INSTALLED !!! My family and I are staying at the condo as I write these comments and I have enjoyed the hot tub nightly . I am sorry you were not able to enjoy the tub at night while listening to the crashing waves, As you mentioned there is a spectacular swimming beach just a couple of minutes down the beach but at high tide the beach in front of the condo is very swimmable and many people enjoy swimming there. The master bedroom as you mentioned is really a retreat with it's own huge balcony with the hot tub. We have a small bar fridge so one can store drinks and chill some wine. The master bathroom is huge with a large shower where you can enjoy the ocean view and if you open the sliding glass door listen to the waves as you shower. Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future. Syd

Fantastic Property with unbelievable views

  • 4 of 5

The condo was absolutely fantastic. It was a beautiful property. We had all the amenities you could ask for. One small snag was, the hot tub was not working when we got there. A part was needed so we couldn't use it. We really looked forward to having the option of the hot tub and since we didn't have it, we were very disappointed.

Crystal Sands is a beautiful property but it is a few miles from any of the action in town.

A taxi is required or a few mile walk to town.

The owner, Syd, gave us so much helpful information regarding restaurants, excursions and tips for staying in Costa Rica. It made the trip so much easier.

A great property with a very accommodating owner.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments . Firstly the condo is EXACTLY 1/2 mile from the centre of town so I am not sure where the "few miles" comment originates from . Taxis are readily available for $5/way .If you read other reviews many people have stated " a car is not needed " . As to the hot tub, mechanical failures are inevitable no matter where one lives and the problem is now corrected as a new part has arrived and been installed . Syd

Wonderful penthouse on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weeks stay in this beautifully appointed penthouse in Tamarindo Costa Rica. Syd and Lynne have thought of everything you will need to make your stay wonderful. Most of our time in the condo was spent on the two large balconies enjoying the sound of the crashing waves and the beautiful sunsets in the evenings. It is nice that you are right on the outside the bustle of Tamarindo but can walk the beach or road into town in about 15 minutes. The beach is quiet and secluded right outside your door or you can walk a few minutes and enjoy the beach, beach bars and restaurants. We enjoyed many of the restaurants Syd informed us about and also had a local cook come in for an evening to prepare some local cuisine for us which was amazing!

Thanks Syd and Lynne for allowing us use of your beautiful home in Tamarindo!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Paula. As you have pointed out we have a magnificent penthouse which is away from the very busy town and it is close enough to walk in 15 minutes or you can take a taxi for $5. We hope to see you again. Syd

Fantastic penthouse condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5-day stay at Crystal Sands #502. The owner, Syd, was very easy to deal with and provided much valuable information. We had 3 couples and everyone praised their individual rooms--the penthouse is incredibly huge! Hot tub off the master BR was great at night. We all spent many hours on the large balcony watching the waves and enjoying cocktails. Highly recommended!

Great family stay

  • 5 of 5

You get what you pay for and more with this beautiful expansive two story condo. Our family of 6 traveled from Chicago over Christmas. 24/7 guarded gated entry and underground parking. We walked to Tamarindo every morning for breakfast along the beach. (15 min). You could also walk along the road but we found it dusty. Take away was you can stay here without a rental car. The pool out back was perfect. The two days we used it only two other people came. The condo is huge and has it all. Even a hot tub off the master deck. We would return. Loved our stay.
