About Cindy Houck

My family owns property here in Tulemar Gardens. We have offered our home for rent here for several years. Recently we have started booking rentals for our friends who also have homes here. This is one of those units.

Cindy Houck purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Cindy Houck chose Quepos

After looking for a long time in Manuel Antonio for a home to buy, we finally found that Tulemar Gardens was the only location with all paved roads to the home, a private beach and a gated community. We fell in love love with the area.

What makes this bungalow unique

The bungalow is located inside Tulemar Resort. Guests can enjoy access to the resort's 4 pools, private beach, onsite restaurant and beach cafe, and 2 scenic hiking trails with abundant wildlife all around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just came back from ten days in Manuel Antonio. Our family of four (kids 9 & 11) stayed in Tulemar at a bungalow. 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!

“Great ending to CR trip”

  • 5 of 5
Last four days of vacation was a stop in the Manuel Antonio area at Tulemar Bungalows. The design of the freestanding octagon bungalow was unique and well-crafted. Our four member family fit quite comfortably. Has its own beautiful beach which is not the case for many of the hotels in the area. Walking up and down the lush hillside can be a bit rigorous but they will shuttle you. The two infinity pools were beautiful and fun to relax in. Attached restaurant satisfied our needs well enough for dinner that we ate there two of four nights. There were easy walks from the hotel to a good variety of restaurants and to local markets.

Concierge Chris made the stay especially enjoyable providing a level of service that we have not experienced before. In fact he offered to coordinate any aspect of our vacation for us long before we got to CR. We did ask him to set up transportation from several distant locales which he did with excellent drivers (Pacifico was the company). He also lined up two higher level guides for us in the parks as one of our daughters is a budding environmental scientist and hoped for someone very knowledgeable. Chris didn't disappoint. He also coordinated a couple of excursions for us. All with a smile.

First trip to CR set the bar really high

  • 5 of 5
I selected Tulemar based on the reviews I read here; even though I still had my doubts and thought maybe they sounded too good to be true.

What can I say, this place is amazing. I literally just got back yesterday and could not wait to talk about it. The resort is beautiful, immaculately kept, and the service is outstanding. The pictures on the website don't do them justice. You'll pretty much have breathtaking views no matter where you go on the property - your room, the pool, the restaurant, etc. I traveled with my 60-yr old mom and my 15-year old niece, and all 3 generations were thoroughly pleased.

We stayed in one of the bungalows, which have 360 views yet still maintain privacy. They are adorable, really makes you feel like you're in a big tree house, with all the comforts of home. Our bungalow didn't include a stove, which was fine since we ate out every meal, but we still had a fridge for drinks and dishes along with a toaster, microwave, and coffee maker for afternoon & midnight snacking. The maid service is outstanding, kept the place neat, even with a teenager staying there.

The private beach is beautiful! Getting there can be a challenge if you're not into walking hills but the shuttle is always available and the drivers are always so friendly and happy to help. If walking the hill isn't enough for you, the property has 2 hiking trails that provided good exercise and great scenery; one of the trails leads you to a beautiful waterfall, which was a nice surprise.

My concierge was Chris, and he was awesome. The first night he took the time to drive me to the store to get some drinks and snacks for my family. He checked in on me frequently and was very helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. He helped me with everything from arranging transportation to/from the airport to making dinner reservations for us. He even set up a nice surprise for my family on our last night out. This was truly first-class service. The rest of the property staff is so friendly and attentive, what a great group of people!

I will definitely be going back to Costa Rica in the future. Regardless of which area I visit, I will make sure to include a couple of nights back in Tulemar. They really raised the bar on accommodations and service, so I can only hope that other "luxury" resorts can live up to the high standards that Tulemar sets for its guests. Pura vida, indeed!

Awesome views in a family paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family and I are staying in the Tulemar bungalows right now and they are so great!! The private beach is secluded in a cove and protected from large waves, and is amazing with free toys, kayaks and other beach fun. Beat beach I've seen in a long time. Fabulous natural rock pool right in the ocean is shallow with warm ocean water, perfect for lounging or small kids to play. Several pools throughout resort too.

Beautiful bungalows and like luxury treehouses with 360 degrees of windows.
I won't look for another resort in this area if I return, this one is absolutely perfect. Great for couples too, I would says it's actually perfect for anyone.

Great Place Amazing Staff

  • 5 of 5
This place is in a great spot. Right up against the beach and surrounded by monkeys, sloths, etc. That being said, the staff is what makes this place so great. Danny was our concierge. From the start he made sure we had everything we needed and called daily to make sure. He showed us monkeys and sloths, and recommended activities and restaurants. The people in the office were also great. They are all great at their jobs and if I owned a hotel I would love to have a staff like this.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tulemar and Manuel Antonio. We stayed in a bungalow which had a beautiful ocean view and was located in close proximity to one of the pools with a restaurant near it. We loved the convenience of having multiple pools onsite, a private beach, a great restaurant onsite, and options to do spa treatments. Excursions were easy to arrange through our concierge Ashley who did a wonderful job taking care of us during our stay. Tulemar was also located in a great location--next to a lot of the local restaurants. We had an awesome time!

Excellent Stay... Monkeys were a plus!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Tulemar during our recent trip in Costa Rica. Tulemar is unique in the sense that it is a community of privately owned properties all different in their own way. We stayed in a bungalow for 4 nights and couldn't have been happier. Beside the bungalow having amazing 360 degree views, we managed to wake up to so much wildlife every morning. Monkeys, Tucans, all kinds of birds etc. The staff on site really go out of their way to make you feel serviced 24/7. From the time we booked, our online concierge Mari was fantastic. She reserved all of the transportation for our trip which was always reliable and on time and she was also happy to help when we wanted to book some activities in Manuel Antonio. When we arrived on site, our local concierge Orlando made our stay there a delight. He was always there on property to help with all of our extra reservations and questions. He was so friendly and always willing to help. His dining reservations were also spot on and delicious! David down at the private beach was always eager to help with umbrellas, towels, chairs, boogie board and kayaks. Luis one of the drivers around property was also great! He always had a friendly face was willing to go out of his way to help us and also had yummy recommendations as well. The Tulemar team helped make the second half of our trip in Manuel Antonio a fantastic one.
