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.

Ed Houck purchased this bungalow in 2005

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.

"If Paradise Had A Name, It Would Be Tulemar"

"If Paradise Had A Name, It Would Be Tulemar"
  • Submitted: Feb 26, 2014

This place is simply amazing! The bungalow had a gorgeous view of the ocean that it's hard to believe was real (but it was!). It was very comfortable, with blissful air-conditioning when we needed to take a break from the heat and humidity. You're right in the middle of nature-- we saw a sloth hanging out in the trees above the pool, a toucan, and even some monkeys in the trees. The beach is awesome as well! You can borrow kayaks, boogie boards, or just relax by the beach with a drink or two. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was also terrific!

The staff was exceptionally helpful. Our personal concierge was Ashley, and she was all too eager to provide restaurant suggestions, arrange for taxis, or whatever else.

I am very much looking forward to returning!

It had views of the ocean and beaches

Went with my best friend and her family. Between us we had 4 adults and 5 children all under 10. We stayed in a three story bungalow. It had views of the ocean and beaches as well as forest. Monkey's came to visit, we saw a sloth in a nearby tree. Kitchen was lovely, rooms and bathrooms were superb. Beatiful property, great resteraunt, and overall a fantastic experience. Small private beach that supplied kayaks, boogie boards, life vests for the kids and food/ drink on the beach.
couldnt have been happier with this property.

A BIG "Thank You" to everyone at Tulemar for the wonderful service we received during our 4 night stay in the Buena Vista Bungalow!! Our concierge, Brian Miranda was extremely helpful in planning our excursions and sharing the history of Costa Rica, as well as giving us 24 hour top-notch service during our time at Tulemar (he even checked in with us on his day OFF). From spectacular sunset views from el Mirador to your own private beach, wildlife all around - this place has it ALL!! Hope to return soon...Pura Vida!

We had a fantastic time

My family (2 adults, 2 teens) stayed at the Tulemar Bungalows for 4 nights in July 2013.! The property, though on a steep hillside, is absolutely beautiful - with plants, flowers, animals everywhere. Our villa had an amazing view of the Pacific and we had monkeys in the trees around our balcony - some even ventured onto the railing in hopes of grabbing a snack (they were unsuccessful). The beach was lovely, secluded, restful & the water was warm & fun to swim in. (Though there are some small rocks & shells in the surf which are slightly painful to walk on as one ventures into the surf so one need be careful entering the water. We found it easier to enter the water on the south/left side of the beach - many fewer rocks.) The rooms were large & well-maintained & clean. Bathrooms, shower, kitchen facilities all worked well. Hot tub took a while to figure out temp setting - temp was a bit too low & took a couple days before we were able to get it above 100F.

The staff were extremely friendly & helpful - Marianne at the front desk, Brian our concierge, David at the beach, and Michael our often-used shuttle driver (no need to walk the steep hill to/from beach). The staff helped us with our various excursions, offered dining advice, etc. - all of which helped make our stay very enjoyable.

There were 4 pools on the property but our kids played in the restaurant pool exclusively - probably because it was closest to our room but also because it was a perfect size and had a spectacular view of the ocean. (And it was right next to the restaurant in case they got hungry.)

The restaurant meals (breakfast & dinner) we had were very good - and our kids had lunch one day at the beach & loved it - good food and can't beach the atmosphere.

On the property, we saw capuchin & squirel monkeys as well as sloths & many birds & lizards. It was quite an experience!

Overall, we loved this resort best of the 3 places visited during our trip to Costa Rica and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I've never seen anything like it

My family and I stayed here for three nights in July 2013. I've never seen anything like it - the grounds are amazing and the bungalows are private and all seem to have great views of the Pacific Ocean. The staff there is about the best I've ever encountered. Their private beach was great - the ocean was so safe we lazed around in it for hours. On the day we had to check-out they kindly held our luggage while we visited Manuel Antonio National Park. We came back from our hike completely soggy and they let us in a 'loft' room above reception and had us all take showers before our drive back to San Jose. Boy, was that appreciated.

Our concierge Chris was amazing

we stayed in one of the bungalows with a view of the pacific ocean. it was very nice and clean with good wifi service. the resort property was amazing. we loved the pools and private beach. we had a car and were able to drive down to the beach. if you don't have a car, it is a pretty steep walk. you can get shuttle service from the beach courtesy of the resort. we were able to see squirrel monkies, white faced monkies and slothes on the property. Our concierge Chris was amazing and very helpful. There are several restaurants within walking distance of Tulemar.

This resort exceeded my expectations

  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013

. After reading several reviews and viewing pictures on various websites I was expecting it to be nice but it totally exceeded my expectations. The bungalows are beautiful and the views are hard to beat of the ocean and rainforest. The staff treats you like a celebrity. Starting off with Pablo in reservations, Danny (pool bartender), Andreas, and the front desk staff went out of their way to accomodate us. They even drove us around to try and spot monkeys which are around the property. The resort is located on a hillside with steep hills to walk. I personally loved the climb but my husband chose to get a ride, which they are always available to shuttle you around the property. The private beach along with paths through the rainforest are all within walking distance. It is also walking distance to a grocery store,and restaurants.HIghly recommend this resort and I can not wait to return.

The bungalows were perfect

  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This was easily the best place we stayed at in Costa Rica. Chris was very proactively helpful and communicative, even well before our trip started. The bungalows were perfect for our family (we had #111), and the place was clean throughout, even in spots that could've been left dusty in most hotels. The private beach is nice, if a bit rocky... At least it's completely uncrowded, and there's no concerns about your car being left in a public area. Nice pool too. This place isn't cheap, but as I've noted in other reviews, nothing in this area is. Would I say here again? Absolutely.

Stayed here in June with two young kids

Stayed here in June with two young kids (7,5), and they loved it. Bungalow was very confortable for several days. Incredible views. Private beach was nice and empty. Waking distance to grocery store and several good restaurants. Staff and service was exceptional. Easy and cheap bus service to Park. Wildlife was the highlight. Saw 3 types of monkeys, a sloth, several iguanas, geckos, and many birds on the property, before even goig to the park. Pools were very nice. Would absolutely stay here again.

Tripadvisor did not let me down

  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013

Tripadvisor did not let me down when it comes to our visit to Costa Rica but the best find by far was the Tulemar Bungalows. Priceless views, shuttle service down to the tulemar private beach, above and beyond concierge service, monkeys and animals galore, basically everything you could ask for in a Costa Rica resort. We also booked ADR adventure through the hotel and they came and picked us up at our bungalow doorstep. I still smile when I think of the other passengers they had already picked up asking "do you have a great view" and I say modestly "yes" while I'm bursting out the seams thinking we have an amazing view, duh. Then they all asked "how did you find this place?" My answer is thank goodness for tripadvisor and all the great reviews.
