About Cindy Houck

I am Cindy Houck. I own property in Costa Rica and have family who live in there year round. I'm very familiar with the Manuel Antonio area and have had the privilege of staying in the Private Villas I represent.

Why Cindy Houck chose Manuel Antonio

This villa is located in Tulemar, the only gated and secure, 33 acre jungle resort community in Manuel Antonio with private residences and it's own beach. We have hiking trails through our jungle, food and beverage service at the pool and/or beach and paved roads (which may sound odd, but you will appreciate them!).

What makes this villa unique

We're located right in the heart of Manuel Antonio, within walking distance to many fun restaurants and bars. There are many beautiful beach homes in Manuel Antonio, but a location in Tulemar is where you'll want to be.

At Tulemar, we have an office located inside Tulemar, so we can assist throughout your entire trip, from lodgings and transportation to tours, restaurants, activities and special services. Whatever your Costa Rica vacation needs, we can make it happen!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just came back from ten days in Manuel Antonio. Our family of four (kids 9 & 11) stayed in Tulemar. The large, private property was amazingly beautiful. It was lush and picture perfect with plants, flowers, birds, butterflies, monkeys and sloths a common sight. The property had four beautiful pools and a private picturesque beach that was never very crowded. The water was warm and the waves were not very big. We used the free boogie boards and kayaks often but brought our own snorkel gear.

The level of customer service was unparalleled. Every single staff member from our maid, bartenders (Daniela and Arlen were awesome!) to wait staff and concierge were there to please. Rarely have I experienced such a genuine eagerness to please in any of my travels all over the world. Our concierge Chris was very attentive. He made arrangements for drivers, dinners, tours and everything else we needed all with a smile and happy heart. I really didn't think we would need a concierge for I am capable of planning on my own but I have to admit that it was nice to have someone there as our "go to" for anything.

Onto the units. Wow. The view was amazing from every window. It was like sleeping in a tree top in the jungle. The bungalows have plenty of space for our family to spread out and the kitchen was great for quick meals.

All totaled Tulemar was perfect. We saw more wildlife every day at the property than we saw in the M.A. state park! We will come back again and stay at Tulemar! The restaurants within walking distance were great. We ate local and drank the tap water everywhere..... I don't even drink my tap water here in Northern California so that is saying something. Tulemar is perfect for couples, families, or anyone else who wants a worry free vacation in paradise!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were staying in the Buena Vista 1 bedroom villa and it was just wonderful. Everything was perfect. The villa is spacious and well designed. The views from our villa were amazing and the sunsets, beautiful. The location is very well and the private beach is just perfect for kids (small, waves not too big). We were able to see wildlife (sloths, monkeys, bats and birds) in the surrounding.

Ashely, the concierge, was very kind and helpful.

We will surely come back.

Owner's Response: Hi Eric, Thank you for your review. I am so glad that you decided to stay with us in Tulemar. The BV One Bedroom Selects are wonderful properties and situated right in the jungle. Lots of animals love to visit. Tulemar is unique and different from any other resort. Please come back and visit again soon. Pura Vida, Cindy

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this magical place!

Our secluded private retreat has stunning sunset ocean views and is surrounded by lush tropical meticulously maintained grounds with daily housekeeping.

Everything is absolutely perfect

The 33 lush tropical acres is surrounded with abundance of wildlife ( 3 species of monkeys, 2 & 3 toed sloths, exotic birds, iguanas) The tropical rainforest engulfs the private beach where we are always greeted by David, the beach concierge, with his friendly smiling face who takes care of our every need with loungers, towels, umbrellas, kayaks, boogie boards (all included) There is an awesome restaurant & bar on the secluded private cove beach; perfect spot for a sunset dinner.

The most attentive personalized service from the staff is incredible! They go above & beyond every possible expectation taking care of every little detail to make you feel relaxed & welcome.

Incomparable property with private beach, 4 pools (1 private adult pool, very secluded tropical waterfall oasis pool, lap pool with waterfall for families and very convenient infinity pool with sunset ocean view and restaurant)

Shuttles are available at your beckoning call to take you anywhere around the property with smiling friendly drivers pointing out wildlife along the way with childlike excitement as if it was their 1st time seeing.

Just outside the gated secured entrance, you can walk a short distance to at least 10 of the best local restaurants, and grocery store.

Tulemar holds a special place in my heart and I can't wait to return.

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I are so happy that we found Tulemar! We stayed in the 1 bedroom select. Everything was top notch...the views, the wildlife, hiking trails, service, even the food at the restaurant on the property. Vanessa & Jonathan were especially gracious and attentive and made our stay magical. Erik at the restaurant was so very sweet and accommodating. I cannot say enough how much this trip was made amazing by choosing to stay at Tulemar!

“Stunning with a great location”

  • 5 of 5

We just left this beautiful resort 8 days ago after a five night stay in a Buena Vista One Bedroom Select. Tulemar is incredible. The beach, the pools, walking trails and lots of animals. It is first class! We can't stop bragging about the staff, our view, beautiful room and resort. The staff gets a 10+ And we already miss Daniella, Michael and the too adorable Charlie and your food and beverage director. We ate most of our meals on the beach or at the main Tulemar restaurant. They were both wonderful. We hope to visit again.

Thanks, Cindy, for suggesting this property

Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July for our honeymoon and were totally blown away. The Buena Vista Select was perfect for us. We really enjoyed watching the many visits of the animals on our deck. Our concierge Chris was only too happy to help, whatever our requests were. Manuel Antonio is lovely and we feel privileged to have stayed somewhere so magical. We loved that you are IN nature and the wildlife surrounds you. It is just incredible. We can't wait to return once we've saved (the flights from England are more than a little expensive!) - The Tulemar experience is worth every single penny!

We will definitely be back!
