About the Owner

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.

Great Condo Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica and this condo was a big part of it. It was located right on the beach far enough away from town to be relaxing without being hard to get in to town for the action. The view of the sunset was spectacular. The condo itself was very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen had everything you need to cook for yourself including decent knives, pots and pans, a blender and many small kitchen gadgets. Bedrooms were spacious and had tons of storage. It was also great to have a washer and dryer right in the unit. We stayed with our toddler and found it easy to baby-proof the condo just by moving a few things to a higher shelf. He loved exploring the tidal pools on the beach at low tide and splashing in the pool. Overall, we highly recommend staying here and hope we can be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Ben,
I am so pleased that the holiday with the family including your toddler worked out so well. Our grandson as well loved to explore those tidal pools and watch the small fish and sea urchin. The small pools are also good safe swimming opportunities for the little ones. Great sand castle building as well.

Please come back and visit us again soon.

Amazing condo in Langosta!

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at Crystal Sands in Annette and Tom's condo in July 2014. I was there with my parents and we had the time of our lives. The condo is not only clean and spacious, it is decorated with the most amazing taste and makes you feel at home. The kitchen is better equipped than my own kitchen, and since we all love to cook, we made a feast every night and just enjoyed al fresco dinner on the gorgeous, ocean facing balcony. We were really sad to leave and would go back in a heartbeat. The check in and check out procedures were very easy and convenient, and we had a complimentary cleaning service after 2 nights since we were staying for 5 days. I strongly recommend this condo for your stay in Langosta/Tamarindo.

Owner's Response: Melissandre,
Tom and I are delighted you and your parents had such a great time at Crystal Sands.

I too enjoy cooking and am rather a stickler to ensure our guests have great resources should they prefer to dine in house versus visiting the many restaurants in Tamarindo.

We look forward to your return visit to Crystal Sands and the. area of Langosta Beach

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.

From the Owner

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.

From the Owner

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.
