About Gloria Thomas
We are retired from oil field services and resort owners, currently firefighters, living in rural Wyoming.
Gloria Thomas purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Gloria Thomas chose Playa Langosta
We fell in love with the local Tamarindo area on vacation in 2005 and have enjoyed their culture since. Spent winter months here for past six years, now onto more places to see, so renting the home.
What makes this Villa unique
Tamarindo Preserve is located on the San Francisco Point, between Langosta Beach and Tamarindo Beach. Howler monkeys swinging limb to limb, parrots singing in the trees, butterflies and hummingbirds everywhere, nature at her best is truly a wonderful experience.

Amazing stay in Tamarindo!
We had an outstanding week at Gloria’s house in Tamarindo. From the very moment we arrived, we loved the ease and comfort of this house. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need; a BBQ, ice maker, AC, a great plunge pool and access to the Langosta Beach Club. The beach is absolutely stunning, and the access to surf lessons and other tours via the club was amazing. While in Tamarindo we went Snuba-ing with Snuba Costarica and also zip lining. We loved the surf feel of the town and found some really great restaurants. Two of our favourites were: The Shrimp Hole for lunch and The Green Papaya for dinner. Pangas Beach Club also had a stunning location to have dinner, and the Fish and Cheese shop directly across the street had great items to create a picnic or apps. We would absolutely recommend this house as a great place to stay in Tamarindo. It is a bit of a walk from town (about 10 min), but we really loved being slightly away from the main area. Gloria was really helpful and this house was perfect for what we were looking for! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us, Gloria!
Thanks Allie for the beautiful review.
Come again soon!
Quiet and comfortable escape
My family and I enjoyed the property very much. You will not be disappointed. Modern accommodations with a nice pool out back to cool down in. Walking distance to the beach and sunset each night.
Thank you and hope to see your group again soon.
Amazing home for the week!
Our family truly enjoyed this beautiful home. We typically rent houses (instead of staying at hotels) and this one was the most well-equipped we’ve ever had. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are firm & comfortable, and the outdoor showers are fabulous. Willy, the caretaker, was so welcoming & was available for any questions that came up. We enjoyed the plunge pool & made use of the langosta beach club membership almost every day. If you want to be in the middle of the action/party scene, this home is not for you. If you are looking for a great home with nice amenities & privacy, look no further!
Thank you Meg! Come again soon.
Nice Villa, few issues that complicated stay, overall nice
Nice Villa, great response from care taker/William but issues with hot water, gas leak, labile air conditioning system and area sewer smell - maybe from area building sites, owner seemed concerned regarding issues and William did attempt to resolve. Very clean and located not as close to beach and facilities as we would of liked, did rent golf cart, felt safe in gated community. Very nice Villa and relaxing garden pool, all amenities for food/restaurants a little off the path without walking, especially at night, got golf cart and zoomed around to all areas with ease. Can rent golf cart across street, $55.00 daily - highly suggest, did love our stay despite issues, sewer smell was overwhelming at times. Lots of area construction directly adjacent to Villa, this may of been some of the issue.
Thank you Marcia,
Sorry for the issues you had on your stay. The engineer for the waste water treatment plant has identified the problem and resolved it. New construction is always inconvenient, but that is how developments get developed. Good news is many beautiful new homes will be nearby, enhancing ours.
Thanks for your business.

Great home base in Tamarindo - close to several beaches and town!
We had a great stay! The house is in a very nice gated community between Tamarindo and Langosta Beach. It’s far enough away from the bustle of Tamarindo to feel secluded, but close enough to walk in 15 minutes or so. It’s also worth checking out Langosta to the south, not to mention breakfast at Sueno Del Mar (right down the beach). Gloria recommended it and it was awesome.
The house is well maintained and has high end finishes throughout. We enjoyed the relaxing patio and plunge pool in the morning, and it was a quick walk down to the beach to explore. Our favorite feature was access to the Langosta Beach Club. Just a 5-10 minute, pleasant walk down the beach (or main road) and you can enjoy a complementary cabana for the morning or afternoon, with friendly staff and access to a gym and beach equipment.
The house is on a hillside looking away from the beach (it’s in an enclave that feels somewhat enclosed), so if you are looking for an ocean view you’ll have to take a stroll - but not too far, as the top of the hill next to the house has a 180 degree view of the coast from Langosta all the way to Tamarindo! Fun times.
Thank you Matt, glad you enjoyed our little piece of paradise. Come again!
Great home, great value, great location!
We enjoyed our stay here very much. We were please by the ease of booking, the suggestions Gloria provided before we arrived as well as checking in during our stay to make sure we were doing well. William was very friendly when we met him to check in and out and make sure we had his contact in case we needed something. We rented a golf cart to get us from the house to town but it was a very easy walk to the beach for days of relaxing and awesome sunsets. Would highly recommend this property to a small family or two couples traveling together, as that is what we did and both had ample space and enjoyed it.
Glad you enjoyed the stay and look forward to seeing you again.
