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 Tamarindo
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.

Fantastic time in Costa Rica
This is my first time renting with VRBO and first time to Costa Rica. Thanks to Annette and Tom for sharing their beautiful place with us. The views of the sunsets were absolutely stunning . This place is beautiful and clean. I have nothing but good things to say about this place.Everything was well maintained and well stocked. There was a guard on duty 24/7 and everyone there is so helpful . Also this place is not far for great location for surfing. Our boys had a wonderful time there. Annette does a great job communicating and responding to messages. We would definitely come back here again.
Great location and property in beautiful Crystal Sand 302. World’s best sunset, colors hard to believe. A little walk to town and the real beach, but great villa, great town, easy process. Well equipped even had buggy boards and water shoes and beach chairs. No brained, stay here.
Thank you Gary for your review of our property at Crystal Sands. Those views from the balcony are incredible and truly one never tires of the sunsets - each one different from the last. Please join us again soon. Annette
Coummincation and feedback from both the owner Annette and the concierge RPM was great! Very responsive to the many questions we had. RPM is very good at arranging tours and we highly recommend using them.
The villa was very well kept with modern furnishings and trendy decor. We loved the large bedrooms each ensuite with bathroom. Great view from the balcony overlooking the sea - very relaxing to have coffee in the morning.
Not many eating places nearby and far out of town. You really need a car to move around. Luckily some of our party that were staying nearby had a vehicle.
All in all our stay in Costa Rica was fantastic!
James thank you for taking the time to complete the review. Our property managers are a great resource to our guests and we value their help in doing the extras for our guests as well as recommending and booking tours and outings as well as dining suggestions and reservation. Annette
From the minute we arrived to Costa Rica our stay was perfect - and a huge part of that was from Annette and the hospitality Crystal Sands provided! The pictures of the property are beautiful, but I must say that the actual property is even better than the pictures, which more than often you run into the opposite! Annette was alway responsive to my emails and any needs we had! There was more than enough sheets, towels, cleaning supplies, etc, which is always nice to have! I know we will be back to Costa Rica and will be staying here again!!!
Thank you again Annette and Tom!!
Thanks for your review and you are so right the pictures really can't capture the beauty of the condo and surrounding property. Making certain that our guests have sufficient extras is truly important to making the stay comfortable and worry free. Come back soon.
Our stay was fantastic, the property was well maintained, everyone was very helpful and it was just far enough out of town to have some much needed respite. The home itself is beautiful and spacious and the grounds are equally as wonderful. Being that close to the beach and having spectacular views, it would be hard to beat. We would come back again for sure!
It is wonderful that you all were able to enjoy your visit in the Tamarindo area and the comfort of Crystal Sands. We do love the quiet tranquility of being a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the town but close enough that it is an easy walk or drive into town. And those views from the balcony are ones that remain with you long after the sun has set and you have returned home.
I look forward to your return visit.
