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.

Had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo for 10 days. Nicely decorated, fully equiped kitchen and very large. Looked directly out to the ocean, no need for blinds as you have full privacy. Lying in bed in the morning you can watch the fishing boats head out. Spent a lot of time on the patio, nice to have your own BBQ. Even had visits from the monkeys in the trees right outside the patio. Staff very pleasant. Owners supplied us with a lot of great information on things to do and places to eat and tips on travelling in Costa Rica. Many thanks, you made our visit a pleasure.

Awesome Condo on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Costa Rica but not our last! The condo was absolute paradise! We felt like we were at home away from home because we had everything we needed. The soothing sound of the ocean could be heard from most every room. The view was beautiful. We spent a lot of time on the deck listening to the waves and admiring the view. The hummingbirds were busy flying in and out of the tree right by the deck. When we did venture out, we enjoyed the walk from the condo or took a taxi to where we needed to go. All of the drivers were very friendly and language was not a barrier. The weather was perfect while we were there ~ always sunny and warm! There was always the option to hang out at the beach (just outside the door) or play in the pool ~ we loved both!! We were entertained one day at the pool by the communication between groups of howler monkeys. The saddest part of our trip was the day we had to leave this paradise. We will soon return and can't wait to start making plans!

Tom and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your first trip to Costa Rica and are wanting to return - we can't wait to host your stay again.
Every time we venture to Langosta Beach we discover new and interesting delights. I think the howler monkey hanging around Crystal Sands are so entertaining. We also love to swim out front in high tide and explore the rocks in low tide. Think the highlight of each day though is watching the sunset - the different colors and hues in the sky are ever changing and a true delight.

Come see us again soon.

Wonderful place for a family holiday!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for the perfect place for a family holiday get together - this is it!! Our family, five adults and one grandson, spent two weeks in Annette and Tom's Crystal Sands condo and couldn't have been happier. Not only is the location great but the condo couldn't have been better. Lots of room, equipped with everything that you could possibly need and a little bonus, spectacular sunsets viewed from the deck. The condo was well maintained and the maid service was nice to have. The three large bedrooms are like mini suites within the condo giving you your own space to relax.

Lola, Natale and the other friendly staff at RPM Property Management were quick to respond to any concerns we had and were great at arranging tours for us. They also made numerous recommendations for things to do and places to go.

Going out the gate onto the beach was great for taking walks, searching for sea shells and for walking to town or to nearby swimming and surfing. Our grandson loved the condo pool that we usually had to ourselves. If you have a vehicle, I would recommend making a day trip to the beaches at Playa Conchal and Playa Avellana, both are spectacular.

Tamarindo has a great selection of restaurants if you want a break from cooking your own meals. A few recommendations: La Pachanga (Italian), Bamboo Sushi Club, Matty's Deli Cafe (next door to RPM Office), Surf Shack Burger and Wings, Sprout (on the way to Villa Real), La Panderia de Paris (French bakery) and Lola's (on the beach in Playa Avellana).

Thanks again to Annette and Tom for providing such a perfect location for our early Christmas family vacation. We can't recommend it highly enough!!!

Owner's Response: Don,
It has been some time since you submitted your review and I am so thankful for your kind words. We too love Tamarindo and Crystal Sands and take delight in being able to host our family and friends in such a unique and fascinating location. The endless beaches, the exploring and interesting tours, great restaurants and terrific sunsets are such fun.

A tad different from the shores in Canada.

Come see us again soon.

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.

Annette & Tom


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.

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.
