About Syd and Lynne

I purchased this wonderful condo as construction was just beginning. It was purchased primarily for my personal enjoyment and it is maintained and furnished to the standard of my own home . I love the time I spend there and I know anyone who stays there will have an outstanding vacation.

Syd and Lynne purchased this condo in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Syd your condo is absolutely beautiful with a great layout and we loved the quiet location in Langosta as compared to Tamarindo .The staff at the complex was friendly and dealt with any minor issues or questions we had immediately . When I met you at your house I mentioned that the idea was for my mother to sit on the balcony and have her tea and enjoy the view and that is exactly what she did and loved it .

On a side note when I dropped my mother off at the airport to return to B.C. she began to cry and thanked me for taking her as she thought she would never see that part of the world . In the days since my brother and aunt have and said she has not stopped talking about the trip and is showing everyone her pictures. My son was bugging us to return to Costa Rica again when we were only 8 days into the trip. He took up boogie boarding and now loves it.

I can answer your question with a simple "yes" , it was up to our expectations but I do not think that would truly show how we felt about the trip and the condo.

On behalf of myself and my family thanks for the rental and we will be back .

Simply Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday with our kids and their significant others. We were 6 adults and had more than plenty of room and privacy in this gorgeous and spacious condo that looks out over the ocean. Beautifully appointed, warm decor, the kind of place you don't want to leave because you could just hang out on the balcony all day, it's just so inviting. But we are the type who can't sit still, so we did loads of day trips. RPM property management is outstanding. They will help you with everything you need. Syd is superb, and is on call at all times. We'd go back in a flash. Can't say enough good things. It's magical.....

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

This property is luxurious, spacious and very well maintained. We were there with 5 adults and 2 children and the space did not seem cramped at all. The pictures depict the actual space very well. The beach and estuary in front of this property were our favorite among all the beaches we visited in and around Tamarindo. Thank you, Syd and Lynne, for a wonder stay and putting up with my million questions before the trip!

Paradise in Playa Langosta

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived for our family Christmas holiday, we knew we had been very fortunate in picking the place to stay. Everything at Horizontes del Mar was first class. The security guards were great, the pool was great, the view was fantastic. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and were great about answering questions before our trip. And the SUNSETS--well we didn't have to go any further than the balcony. Playa Langosta is just outside Tamarindo and so it is away from all the crowds but close enough to get to town. A nearby grocery store and Pizza restaurant (rated at the time as #3 in Tamarindo for good reason) were added bonuses. The balcony off the master bedroom upstairs was the perfect place for morning coffee. We were also impressed with all the supplies you needed to cook at home. If we are fortunate to return some day, we won't look any further than this property.

Stunning property right on the water

  • 5 of 5

The location of the penthouse was perfect, on a quiet and very private street away from the noise of the town but a 10 minute drive away. It's right on the water on a gorgeous stretch of beach with many volcanic tide pools to explore, however not swimmable. Swimmable beaches are available a leisurely 10 minute walk toward Tamarindo. The city of Tamarindo itself is very Americanized, touristy and busy; finding authentic Costa Rican culture is difficult in this area. On the plus, there are many tourist activities to do. Staying at this property was an excellent choice, since we found the town overly crowded and touristy. We enjoyed a nice balance with a quiet, private home base.

The penthouse itself is stunning and in a safe, gated complex. It easily accommodated the two families with small kids in our group. It's very spacious, comfortable and elegantly decorated in tropical Tommy Bahama style. It had everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. The pictures don't do it justice.We happened to catch a bit of Hurricane Otto. The owners were very protective of us and gave us updates, making us feel very safe and welcomed.

*TIP: It rains all the time in Costa Rica, so come prepared with a rain slicker/umbrella and waterproof cases for electronics!

***Unrelated but useful information: a car is highly necessary to fully enjoy Costa Rica. However, they are notorious for ripping off Americans, particularly Economy rentals, via Expedia. Our bill almost tripled due to Economy lying to us about insurance requirements. Save yourself a headache and purchase international rental insurance stateside and research the legal requirements for insurance.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Rachel. If you walk away from the town just a few minutes is a fantastic estuary and gorgeous sandy beach . Generally the rainy season in Tamarindo ends by early November with no rain until May but this year has been an exception. Thanks again and we hope to see you again. Syd

Best Vacation We Have Ever Been On!

  • 5 of 5

It's been nearly a month since we went for a week long vacation in Costa Rica. I can't begin to verbalize how incredible our experience was. My family and I have spent the last month talking about how much we loved and miss this condo. The condo is located just outside of Tamarindo, but makes for a relaxing walking down the road/beach or a quick $5.00 taxi ride into town. The place itself was luxuriously immaculate. From the second we walked in, we were in paradise. The balconies presented the most beautiful view we have ever witnessed and an endless sea to sip on a glass of wine while enjoying. We woke up a couple of the mornings to giant iguanas right outside our patios. Incredible! The condo provided a large living space to enjoy ourselves. We enjoyed tons of outdoor activities, locally & at Rincon De La Vieja. We got to enjoy the ziplining, horseback riding, white water rafting, catamaran sunset cruise, the estuary tour and tons of other amazing things! We have NOTHING but amazing things to say about this place. You will NOT regret renting it! Thank you Syd for providing us with a memory that will last a lifetime. We can not wait to come back to Costa Rica. And when we do, it will be right here in this condo!
