About Annette Gillis
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
Why Annette Gillis chose Playa Langosta
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.
What makes this Condo unique
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.

Amazing Condo w/ spectacular views
Thank you Annette for sharing your beautiful condo with us. It had everything and more then we could have ever needed for our 9 day stay. It has a well equipped kitchen as well as all we could possibly have needed for a day at the beach. The views were amazing. Also, RPM was so helpful in arranging tours for us and the condo security personnel were so nice and helpful as well. I highly recommend this condo. It's close enough to Tamarindo to enjoy the touristy attractions and shops but yet far enough that you felt like you were in your own little pc of paradise.

Loud construction noise for 2 days. Drilling on 5th floor should have been done in off season. Every thing else was wonderful.
We have had conversations with our building managers about the renovations and issues with the noise. We believe the renovations are almost complete. I absolutely agree with you regarding completing renovations on the off season and this will be addressed at our next AGM.
I do hope you come back as your ongoing support and stays at Crystal Sands are important to us.
Great Location and All the Amenities you Need
We've traveled to this area twice before and Tamarindo can get a little crowded and touristy for our liking - so we looked for something that was a little more secluded but close enough to access the city when we wanted to. Crystal Sands did not disappoint. It feels very private and is just a few minutes away from the hustle of the city. Annette and Tom have a fantastic place that comes with everything you need. They have thought about all the little things like spices and soap for the dishwasher (I cannot tell you how many condos do not have these things). When you travel you don't want to have to buy an entire package just to use something once. We even got to watch our local sports teams play on TV (sorry Annette/Tom, but we enjoyed the Coyotes defeating the Flames). Additionally, the WiFi worked great.
The view from the balcony is amazing, especially during sunset. During high-tide it was almost like the waves were right outside your door. Everything inside is very clean and very well kept. We very much enjoyed the stay and wished it had been for a longer period.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your review of our condo at Crystal Sands. I so agree with you about the location. Being away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo is perfect and yet it is close enough to walk or drive should you wish. We love the walks to town that give us the chance to enjoy the unique shops Tamarindo has to offer. There also are many terrific restaurants to chose from for lunch, dinner or even a snack and a drink. You are one of our first guests to experience the new satellite dish that we installed. And yes we sadly watched our Flames lose to your Coyotes - next year!
We look forward to hosting you and your family again in the near future.
We absolutely loved the accommodations and location of this rental. The condo is beautiful, as are the grounds of the property. We are a family of 5 with 3 teenagers and there was plenty of room to spread out or hang together on the balcony or on the couches in the family room. Kitchen is well-appointed. There's plenty of beach towels and chairs. Beds and pillows were also very comfortable - having just had spine surgery a few months ago, I appreciate a good bed. My brother was staying in the heart of Tamarindo at Witches Rock Surf Camp - perfect for him as a single guy that loves to surf. This condo is about 1.5 miles from Witches Rock and a world of difference in terms of how peaceful and quiet it is. We loved the feel of Tamarindo and loved coming "home" to the quiet of Crystal Sands. I have nothing negative to say. Should we ever return to Costa Rica, I would love to stay in this unit again.
Rachel, I am so pleased to hear that you and the family enjoyed your time at Crystal Sands and also Tamarindo. We love the spaciousness of the condo as it allows friends and guests to have the quiet times/space they may want. There is also the work station for those unfortunate enough to still have to stay connected while on holiday. The large expansive deck allows for group activities - card games, meals, appetizers, drinks etc. There is even enough space on the deck to find a spot for quiet reading. As Tom and I enjoy eating in, as well as dining out we wanted to ensure our guests also had the option to do this too; thus the well stocked kitchen. Please come and visit us again in the near future.
Large, comfortable condo with ocean views
We really enjoyed this large condo and the ocean views from the property. After our family was crammed in a resort room for several days inland we were able to spread out and relax in this space. The kitchen was fully equipped and there was a market within walking distance. There is also a pizza place and liquor store just down the road. We did take advantage of the pool a couple of times which was nice. The property was always supervised at the gate which made us feel safe and the area was quiet. It is a longer walk to Tamarindo than you would think although we enjoyed the walk during the day. After dark I would recommend a taxi and the personnel at the gate set us up with a great driver that we used many times. Plenty of towels and beach equipment were available with the condo. I highly recommend this rental.
Thank you for your comments about your stay at Crystal Sands.
The condo is indeed spacious and offers families and guests the opportunity to not only share group times together but also allows one the chance to escape for a bit of quiet time if you choose.
We love to have the choice of either dining out at the many great restaurants in the area or eating in, thus the fully equipped kitchen.
The smaller grocery stores in the area really do have a pretty good stock and allows one to purchase just about anything you might need for your stay.
I am pleased to hear you were able to take advantage of a driver to take you places that you wanted to go. The guards at the gate and our property managers are very helpful to our guests. They are able to make arrangements for drivers, outings and tour bookings as well as dining recommendations and reservations.
We look forward to hosting you when your travels bring you back to the Tamarindo/Langosta Beach area.
Fabulous condo in Tamarindo
My family of four had a wonderful time in this condo for our first stay in Tamarindo. Annette was very responsive and helpful during our booking process and the days leading up to our trip. This condo is extra spacious and very luxurious with great attention to quality appliances and decor. The balcony is amazing. It is so huge and offers a beautiful view of the beach.
Only note I would make is that the beach is rocky and not really swimmable; but it is a 5-10 minute walk away from a large sandy beach. I'd also recommend you rent a car for this condo as walking into town was longer than we would have wanted (and no sidewalks, 15-20 minutes).
All-in-all though, I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend to others!
Thank you for your comments about your recent stay with your family at Crystal Sands.
I agree with you that the deck of the condo overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a perfect spot to relax and just watch the comings and going along the beach. It is our favorite spot too and provides a perfect vantage point to watch those nightly sunsets.
The beach in front of the condo is rocky at low tide but provides a great opportunity to explore the tidal pools on the reef. We actually love to swim there at high tide as the area is protected by the reef and the waves are not as big as in some of the other areas, and the tides are high enough that the rocks are well below the surface. Some of our guests snorkel out front at high tide.
The walk into town as you say is about a 15-20 minute walk along a road that offers no sidewalks. For those who prefer not to rent a vehicle there is also the opportunity to ask the guards to call a cab for the drive into town. It is also easy to grab a cab in the middle of town for the return trip which is about $5.00 one way.
We look forward to hosting you in the near future.
