Manuel Antonio Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms; 3 kings 4 twins, 3 +baths w/stone showers, sleeps 10

Garden House at Tulemar - a luxurious large private beach house. Consider this house your best choice.

1) YOU ARE TRULY AT THE BEACH. Very, very few houses really are at the beach.

2) LARGEST PRIVATE POOL in Tulemar. All guests can swim in it at one time and not feel crowded, and never feel cold. Always a comfortable temperature and so convenient you will find yourself using it 2 or 3 times a day even at 2am.

3) MOST CONVENIENT LOCATION IN ALL OF MANUEL ANTONIO. Guests can all go their own way. 5 to 10 min.Taxi ride to just about anywhere in Manuel Antonio or Quepos.



6) EXCLUSIVE BEST FAMILY BEACH, with bar & food service available. Walk out the door with just your swimsuit. Beach towels, lounge chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, life vests, sand toys, and more for your use free of charge. 7) NO DIRT ROADS, paved all the way to the front door. ENJOY THE WILD IN LUXURY

Concierge available to book tours.: The house manager will act as your concierge. He can arrange airport pick up, private chef, stocked refrigerator upon arrival, catered meals, car rental, chartered plane, etc. These amenities are made through the manager either before or during your stay, and costs of such amenities are made directly to him. He can also recommend the best restaurants, tours, etc.

Although a 3 level house with lots of privacy for all, the lower bedroom only requires one step to enter, and you find yourself on the same level as the pool, living room, kitchen, dining room, and outdoor fireplace area. There is a ramp leading from the driveway right to this bedroom, then one step to enter, and one small step to pool area from the sliding glass doors which give a spectacular view of the pool, ocean and the jungle. This is great for anyone who may have trouble dealing with stairs.

There are many beautiful houses in Manuel Antonio, but very few are located where you really walk out the door to the beach. Also, parking is right at the house, not at a parking lot. No need to hike down or up a hill, hike up stairs, or walk down long halls or through lobbies. You get out of your car right in the driveway of the house.

Three reasons to reserve Garden House by the Beach over any other house in Manuel Antonio.

1) It is located in Tulemar. Exclusive gated community with its own beach Use of beach towels, umbrellas, tables, lounge chairs, are there free for your use. Full bar and food service is available with linen table cloths for your dining. You can walk to the beach with just your sunglasses and sun lotion. There is no need to pack up a car with gear. 2) Garden House by the Beach has the largest private pool in Tulemar. Beautiful sunsets are seen along with the wonderful sounds and sights of the monkeys. Pool is dark stays warm all day and night. It truly provides a heavenly swim with nature and privacy.

3) Totally paved road to the house. Just 2 minutes to main road of Manuel Antonio. You never feel stuck here, if part of your party decides to do different activities, it is only a 10 ride to Quepos, or any restaurant in Manuel Antonio. Beach is a 4 min. walk with-in the landscaped grounds. Shuttle service is free within the grounds.

Tours: If you like adventure don't miss the Canopy Safari zip line tour, which has the best all day tour swinging through the jungle on cables and you really do not need to be athletic. This tour has been used by the stars for both television episodes and movie productions, and noted for its well run tours.They serve an amazing authentic Tico meal prepared by women who live in the rain forest, and the company has an extremely very high safety record.

If you like adventure, there are all kinds of tours for all adventure levels for a 2 year old to a 90 year old. Private tours and private guides can be arranged. ff you are visiting during the fishing season, this area is said to be the best in the world for the sport of deep sea fishing, so do not miss out on this adventure. Tours will pick you up right at your front door of Garden House.

PrivateTennis Club about 25 min. away. Available to guests at reasonable fees.

Amazing Home. Literally took our breath away.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful week long vacation in Costa Rica. Im so happy we chose to stay at Garden house and not a hotel. It really feels as though you actually live in this wonderful place rather than an uncomfortable hotel. Evenings were spent relaxing and watching the beautiful sunsets while every morning we awoke to the sounds of birds and monkeys. Everything we could every dream we would need was at the house, even games for when it rains. We even planned half our trip from the books and brochures that were provided with the house. I only wish I could be back watching the sunset while floating in the pool overlooking the ocean to bad real life is calling. When I go back to CR I will certainly stay at Garden House.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I too forget the amazing beauty and serenity of Garden House by the Beach until I walk through the front doors and see the amazing view, and the serenity that the sunsets and the wild life provide.

Spectacular! Garden House is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the Garden House at the Beach in Tulemar is spectacular. The house, the grounds, the infinity pool, the views, all amazing. We found the house to be even better than the pictures convey. The house itself is very comfortable, and stocked with everything we could possibly need. The bathrooms even had upscale soaps and shampoos. We ate all our meals but one at the house, and the kitchen was fully equipped. The location could not be better. Overlooking the Pacific, you feel as though you are in the middle of the rainforest. Only one house is visible, and it is far away. Every morning we were treated to families of monkeys in the trees, and twice we saw a sloth come down to the ground and slowly crawl about. We also saw an iguana and birds in every color you can imagine. Every evening we enjoyed an incredible sunset on the water. It IS paradise! The beach is a short steep walk down the private road. It is beautiful and isolated. An attendant will bring towels, set up lounges, provide boogie boards and kayaks. We kayaked out to a an area with great snorkeling. Finally, besides all of this, what makes a stay at Garden House a must is its manager, Asher, one of the most competent people I have ever met. Weeks before we even arrived she promptly answered all my questions, set up transport to and from airports, and arranged a surfing day with a local expert. Once we arrived she showed us all the amenities of the house, gave us a tour of the resort, and even took me to the grocery store. She was there for us 24/7 with help and information, and made our stay even better. I cannot recommend Garden House highly enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your wonderful experiences at Garden House as it is much appreciated. Because Garden House is so conveniently located, as it is just about an a 5 to 10 min., drive to most anywhere you may want to go in Quepos or Manuel Antonio, that you will not find your vacation spent in a car. There are activities for all ages and all adventure levels. Most tours will pick you up right at the front door of the house. The area is also world renown for deep sea fishing. Garden House itself is one of the very, very few private houses with direct beach access in Manuel Antonio and with a large pool that stays warm all day and night. With the convenience of free shuttle service within the gated grounds, two restaurants within the grounds , free use of sporting equipment at the beach, along with beach attendants, private daily maid service and a private concierge to help with your travel needs, all of which makes Garden House a most highly rated place for a family vacation. It is the wish of the staff, and myself, the owner, to make every guests stay a most comfortable and enjoyable one..

Best Bargin And Beach Access

  • 5 of 5

Garden House by the Beach, The Greatest! This is the house to stay at if you love the ocean and swimming. The pool here is fantastic, as we were swimming in this private pool every chance we could get,even at midnight. Not having to worry about hours of use, nor having to walk any distance to use the pool, it became a haven for all in our party of a variety of ages, and we could all be in the pool at the same time and still have room to swim. It was amazing as the temperature of the pool was always warm even when we were swimming by the light of the moon. We had rented other houses in the area, and stayed once at a hotel and the temperature of the pools were not always warm especially in the evening making them not so inviting.

The beach also was just within a short walk and there was free shuttle service when we wanted it for those in our group not so mobile. This was also so pleasant since our previous stays in the area we found we always had to take a car to get close to the beach and it really was not convenient.

The house manager of Garden House by the Beach, Thomas, was ever so helpful with our stay and the best recommendations for tours and restaurants for our group. He was great in that he provided such privacy that he made us feel as if we were the owners of the house, but he was always available when we had any requests.

The house was furnished simply with all Costa Rica made furnishings which were durable and pleasant to the eye, which made you feel like you really were in Costa Rica and not just anywhere in the world. It did have all up to date appliances, and a very nice modern table service,

One great thing we did was to order through Thomas, to have the house stocked with some food and drinks before our arrival. This was exceptionally nice in that we did not need to run to the grocery store as soon as we arrived. We could just jump in the pool, and start to enjoy our vacation immediately

The Perfect Vacaton

  • 5 of 5

If you have never been to Quepos and Manuel Antonio, then you are in for a treat. Get ready for being treated like royalty. Every single employee in this private gated community and with the several companies providing tours in this town did everything to make our vacation, easy, fun, comfortable and most enjoyable.

First, this home is everything the owner say and more. The feeling of being surrounded by jungle at the same time having all the comforts of a well maintained home was quite special. The incredible views from every room are amazing. The rooms are comfortable, well decorated and designed for even our large group to have privacy when needed. The pool is great and we all spent a lot of time in it when we weren’t on tours or at the beach.

The beach is lovely with all beach toys, kayaks, boggy boards, lounge chairs and towels all included! The kids had a great time playing in the fresh water stream running into the ocean.

The best day of all was our fishing trip on The Paz Espada. All I can say is wow! Diego the owner / captain, was well organized and knowledgeable. It wasn’t a fishing day it was a catching day! His boat was clean and comfortable for everyone. He had lots of beverages and lovely snacks, even took us to a private cove for swimming. Everyone had a fantastic time. Even me and I don’t like fishing!

Owner's Response: The staff, the community, and those who serve the area in the tourism industry in which Garden House is located, are amazing, It seems like the consensus of everyone involved in working with tourists in the Manuel Antonio area, try to make sure that visitors return from their vacation with great experiences and wonderful memories, that they will share with their friends back home.

Monkey Parade

  • 5 of 5

Hi Beverley!

We had a wonderful vacation and the house is beautiful! The kids stayed in the pool most of the time when we were at the house. Every morning around 6am, a group of white faced monkeys came through the trees right next to the house. The kids called it "the monkey parade". I have never seen my sixteen year old son get up that early but he did every morning! Canopy tour was wonderful and three of us went white water rafting on the Chorro river! We enjoyed the National Park tour as well! It was a much needed and relaxing vacation. Thanks for sharing your home!

One of our best family vacations ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had at the Garden House! The house is beautiful, complete with all the luxuries of home. It has a fabulous view of the ocean, a front-row seat to the white-faced monkeys every morning and a wonderful concierge in Thomas. The house was cleaned every day, and our laundry was done without even asking! In addition to the fabulous accomodations, we found Costa Rica to be a beautiful country full of warm and friendly people. We wished we could have spent another week in this paradise, but will certainly return! We highly recommend white-water rafting, the canopy safari, a sunset cruise and a private tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. We loved Cafe Milagro (loads of mono titi's!!!), the restaurant at Si Como Non, Kapi Kapi and Barba Roja. All of Thomas' recommendations were wonderful!
