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.

Sunsets, walks, and luxury!

  • 5 of 5
I've been meaning to write this review for a couple of months and I just couldn't let another month go by without singing the praises of this luxury condo and it's location.
The condo was spacious, well appointed, the attention to detail superb, and it was luxurious. Everything we could possibly need was provided. The outdoor deck was the first place with coffee in hand, you wanted to be in the morning, with a race back to get the unbelievable sunset views while you sipped your wine in the evening.
The development is well attended too and has 24 hour visible security which we always appreciate no matter where we are. The pool, although not on the ocean side, provided a place to cool off after a hot day at the beach. Very comfortable loungers are in place around it.
The beaches offer unlimited wandering with calm places to take a dip or with areas that one can surf. The beach directly in front is a very large tide pool area for exploring when the tide is out, but when the tide is in, it is a fabulous place to paddle around after the rocks have been warmed by the sun all day. Advice....take some rock shoes...or you won't enjoy this exploring.
The areas around the condo provide some tucked away restaurants, or you can take a leisurely stroll along the beach into Tamarindo. There is no shortage of good quality eateries and one can even stop along one of the beach accessed spots for a cool one and some ceviche. There is a small grocery store within a short walk that has everything, but because we had a car, we loaded up at the large supermarket in town.
There is an abundance of activities - our favourite was the day we spent with Antares sailing adventures - it's family owned and I must say, they could not do enough for us. It's an older boat, but so very comfortable, they fed us all day, they had a phenomenal guitarist to serenade us during the day and at sunset, and the snorkelling wasn't bad either! Tom and Annette have left lots of info in the condo for you to peruse.
Of course the highlight of the days was returning to the this luxurious condo.

Beautiful Condo on the Beach

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica and a beautiful stay at Crystal Sands Condo. Annette and Tom have thought about everything a family would need in their home away from home. This condo was absolutely beautiful and fully equipped. We had five adults and we had plenty of room. The large deck that overlooked the ocean was a perfect place for starting your day with a leisurely breakfast, watching the humming birds, and then watching the spectacular sunsets every evening. The pool and hot tub were very clean and well maintained. We walked into Tamarindo each day and the route was lit at night. There are two markets within walking distance where we could pick up groceries. Lola at RPM was very helpful and responsive and we appreciated her coordinating our shuttle from the airport and then back again.

Owner's Response: Marilyn and Konrad,
I am so pleased that you had a wonderful vacation with your family at Crystal Sands. It lends itself very well to celebrating special occasions - 40 years of marriage is truly a remarkable accomplishment and we congratulate you two.

The walk into town is always fun whether you take the beach access or via the road. We love the beach route during the day when we can walk in the water and stop along the way to enjoy a cool drink at The Beach Club. There you have the opportunity to watch the people and scenery - always entertaining.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and we look forward to hosting you again when your travels take you to Costa Rica.

A fantastic condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and used VRBO for our accommodation needs as we have done many times previously. We were not disappointed. The condo is a large 3 bedroom unit with an big deck overlooking the ocean. There was everything in the condo including a great BBQ. The sunsets from the deck were spectacular. Costa Rica has the most beautiful beaches in the world and we drove to many of them. The "village" of Tamarindo is a typical tourist community with the usual highlights. Lola at RPM was very helpful with everything and nothing was too much for her. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: Ken,
I am hopeful as well this will not be your last visit to Costa Rica and you choose to return in the near future.
We too love spending time walking the many beaches in the area. The beaches provide opportunities to find the perfect shells, explore the tide pools, watch the surfers, jump the waves and observe the wildlife hanging out in the trees - to name a few things.
Thanks so much for taking the time to add your comments.

Wonderful, luxurious condo with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5
My family just returned from an amazing trip to Costa Rica and can honestly say that the Crystal Sands condo owned by Annette did not disappoint us in any way. The condo had everything we needed and seven of us (4 adults and three kids) were very comfortable and happy there. It's perfect for families who needs space. The condo pool is great and we spent a lot of time floating around since it got shade in the afternoon. In the words of my 7 year old "it's like a mansion".

RPM was very helpful for making reservations or just giving us advice. We were close enough to Tamarindo to enjoy the amenities without having to be in the thick of the towns busy-ness - there's so much to do and see there but it was great to come back to the quieter area of Playa Langosta where it is laid back and very relaxing.

The views from the condos amazing balcony were spectacular - a different shade of red sunset every evening. We took lovely walks on the beach, went boogie boarding, horseback riding, surfing, ziplining and visited a national park where we saw crocodiles and a troupe of white-throated monkeys. All either in Tamarindo or within a 1.5 hour drive.

Thank you Annette for being our host and for being so responsive and helpful!

Owner's Response: Dana,
I am so pleased that the configuration of the condo gave you and your family the space and comfort that is so important on vacations.
It was my pleasure of course to provide you with the information. I love to share the tidbits that we have discovered over the years, that make travel to the area more enjoyable. There is so much to see and do and still after 5 years we continue to explore new adventures each visit.
Those sunsets can't be beat anywhere - and we have watched more than our share. What I love about them is that no two are the same. I was showing a friend some recent photos of sunsets from our balcony at Crystal Sands and they couldn't believe the variety that I did capture. It is an amateur photographers dream come true.
Please come visit us soon,

Amazing condo on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. Beautiful, fully equipped condo, with plenty of room for six adults.
Spectacular sunsets every night from the patio. We enjoyed walking the beach to Tamarindo, a great beach town, with lots of shops and restaurants. The RPM management office is just a short walk away. They were very helpful with booking day trips, and making dining reservations, as well as airport transportation. Tico To Go is a service we really enjoyed, be sure to check it out. The pool at the condo was very spacious and well maintained, we were practically the only people there most days. We would like to thank Annette and Tom for the use of their beautiful condo and with providing us with all the helpful information before we arrived.

Owner's Response: We too enjoy those walks along the beach into Tamarindo and stopping to have a beveridge. The sunsets are spectacular and it never ceases to amaze me how each is just a bit different. The deck and the point are the prefect spots for viewing for sure.
The little hints are the things we have learned through our five years of travel to Costa Rica. They have made our trips that much easier and it is our pleasure to help our guests whenever and wherever we can.
Please come back and be our guests. We look forward to being your hosts.

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.

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.
