Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Located in the exclusive Buena Vista Villas resort inside Tulemar, we choose one of the three bedroom premium villas and add our own amenities and service; from Mauricio, your personal concierge to fresh flowers and other surprises, we transform it into our own Casa Ylang Ylang. This villa is a luxurious, 3 story, 3 bedroom, 3,000 sq ft. retreat nestled into the jungle hillside. Casa Ylang Ylang is named after the Ylang Ylang tree, whose aromatic flowers become most fragrant at sunset and is the basis for Chanel #5 perfume. It offers panoramic views of the ocean and lush jungle.

The casa is luxuriously furnished and has high end appliances throughout. As you enter through the huge teak door you pass into the over-sized living and kitchen area. There is also a 1/2 bath and a large daybed / TV on this floor. This leads to the 450 sq ft. wrap-around veranda with stunning view of the ocean and jungle, an outdoor dining area and a cold water, Jacuzzi tub (you do not want a hot water tub!).

On the next level below are 2 suites, each with 2 queen beds, luxurious mattresses and European linens and their own terrace. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with stone counters and an indoor and outdoor raindrop shower and ocean views.

On the bottom floor is the master suite, complete with king size bed, desk area, indoor and outdoor showers and a balcony, all with ocean views.

Use of the resort's three pools is included.

Our family has been visiting Manuel Antonio for more than ten years. It was so easy to fall in love with the beaches, the water, the national park and the people. Our family now owns vacation property in Tulemar Gardens. Because of that, we have developed a unique ability to find the perfect accommodations for vacationers to Costa Rica for several years now.

Cindy Houck purchased this villa in 2007

Chris was very attentive and helpful with any of our needs, reservations etc.. We did the Quepos canyoning tour and they were great- highly recommend!!! WE also took surfing lessons from Debbie Zec in

Back Again!

We are a family of 8 who stayed in a BV three bedroom villa for the second time and it was as wonderful as the first. The best thing about the house is the balcony views. There is also a Jacuzzi tub to sit in and enjoy the view. The views are so beautiful and the sunsets have to be seen. Wildlife is all over Tulemar and so fun to walk around to see. Great private beach and I really like all of the eating options right out of the resort. Many good restaurants or breakfast and lunch spots to choose from. There are also great places to eat at in Tulemar. Another aspect I like are the hills you can walk in the resort. Do not worry. They have a shuttle service that will pick you up at your unit and take you to the beach or front of the resort. But for active people that want to stay in shape while on vacation, just walk back up from the beach to your rental unit every day. It is a workout! lol But a good one. Believe me, you can go out and eat and drink whatever you want afterwards and still drop weight. At least that was my case. lol And another positive about walking is that you seem to always catch some wildlife in the trees along the way. Fun to stop and take a break to watch. Also, the concierge service is excellent. They are not intrusive at all but if you have any questions about Manuel Antonio, they can answer. They will also recommend and book any tour or restaurant that you want. The cleaning service also does a fantastic job of keeping the house spotless every day. This three bedroom villa is not cheap but it is beautiful place to stay and worth every cent. We will be back again.

Five Stars all the way!
We stayed in a Buena Vista three bedroom villa, a beautifully appointed villa that is perfect for a large family or three couples. Every window has a panoramic view of the Pacific. The first morning we awoke to a rainbow outside our window!!!
The kitchen was amazing and even though we did not plan to cook we did some. We had everything we needed in a kitchen. It was large and beautiful! We enjoyed a dinner and 3 breakfasts in the restaurant by the pool, where the views are so amazing you barely notice what you are eating.
Everyone at this property is extra helpful and accommodating. Our concierge Chris arranged a tour of Manuel Antonio and we had a great experience. He made arrangements for dinners and excursions.
The beach is so lovely, and the man who runs the chair concession is always watching out for the guests, moving the umbrella to keep us from burning. And he did it with a smile!! Our kids had so much fun at the beach it was hard to get them to go to the villa.
The waiters and bartenders at the beach were really fun and sooo nice (Rudy and Jose).
The monkeys joined us for lunch,which was a total highlight.
Jose made us a special cocktail , I think it was called the Crazy Monkey...I'm craving it right now,absolutely yummy!
We felt pampered and well taken of, and completely enchanted by the natural beauty of this property. Hope to return soon. This is a must stay!!!

Perfect Vacation even though we had lost baggage

  • Submitted: Dec 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We all needed some much needed downtime but also like to explore new places and have the opportunity to do more than just sit on the beach. Manuel Antonio and Tulemar, in particular, turned out to be the perfect spot for us. Travel plans went awry due to bad weather in the U.S., baggage was lost for days, it rained (mostly at night), and we had a few other blips. BUT we had Chris Madrigal, our wonderful concierge, to take care of us and the people of Costa Rica welcoming us with their warm smiles and offers to make our visit a terrific experience. The resort is beautiful with outstanding service every step of the way including being booked on the best tours with the best guides. We saw all the monkeys - squirrel monkeys, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys as well as coati, raccoons, toucans, sloths, frogs, anoles, iguanas, butterflys and amazing birds both big and small. We did the ADR, ziplining, tour of the Park, sunset sail and snorkeling, ATV tour and we had a couple of relaxing days at the beach as well. We opted to cook home ourselves at the villa one evening and magically fresh fish and lobster showed up in our refrigerator. Everyone at Tulemar wants you to be happy, enjoy yourself and love the place. And Chris is the absolute best concierge in the whole world! We highly recommend Tulemar!

Best Vacation Ever

Our 2 families with kids ranging from 16-22 had the "Best Vacation Ever". The house is amazing. You'll never want to leave. The view, monkeys, Maurcio and all the staff are professional and first class all the way. The chef prepared our last meal.......AMAZING! Our activities included Extreme Adventure (ADR), Dante's Water Sports for surf lessons, White water rafting and the jet ski tour. Kids were thoroughly entertained. Itza Spa came to our home and gave massages. The mother/daughter team was fantastic. You have to have a massage on the deck! We would love to go back every year. Thank you Cindy for suggesting this villa for the "Best Vacation Ever"!

Great Vacation with Family

  • Submitted: Dec 11, 2013

My husband and four teens stayed at a three bedroom villa and had a great time! The villa was incredible - we loved the view, the balconies, the outdoor showers and all the space. We spent a lot of time at the Tulemar beach and the waves were perfect to play in - not too big to be dangerous but big enough to have fun in. We couldn't believe how empty the beach was - sometimes we had it almost to ourselves.
We had white faced monkeys visit us on our deck a couple mornings and that was so fun - they seemed to "play" with us, jumping around on the deck and trying to get in. That was a fun surprise!
Chris was our concierge and he was great. We didn't require much care but when we did, he was super helpful and friendly.
We definitely recommend Tulemar. It's a bit expensive but I would recommend spending a little more to get a balcony, we used ours a lot. Having the private beach available and outstanding views was worth it. We saved money by eating in the villa for most meals - great kitchen.
This is a really special place - we almost cried when we had to leave. We miss it already.

Great Place, Great Staff

My friends and I stayed here in late August as part of a trip through central america and we had the greatest times of our lives! The Villa was enormous and marvelous. It looked like it came right out of television show. There was a beautiful balcony and hot tub, tons of great looking rooms, and an out of the world view. The beach and pool were impeccable, and they have complimentary boogie boards and kayaks for you to use during your stay.

As great as the location and house was, the trip would not have been the same without the outstanding service we got from our concierge Julien. He was available 24/7 and would stop at nothing to make sure our trip was great. We really did not have any itinerary coming in and his recommendations for activities and places absolutely made our weekend. He arranged for transportation for us during the whole weekend, and even got groceries delivered to us! I've stayed at a ton of hotels and resorts during my life and I have never met a concierge as good as him and I doubt I ever will.

I could not recommend Tulemar more. Thanks to all of the staff, it was the best experience we had during our month long trip through central america.

Awesome time in Manuel Antonio and Tulemar

We just got back from a trip to Costa Rica and had a wonderful time in Manuel Antonio./Tulemar. My friends and I stayed at one of the three story villas and everything was perfect. Our personal concierge Andres was wonderful, and helped us with everything we needed from arranging a private dinner to recommending good nightlife. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The private beach was amazing as well as the pools and walking trails. This is a one of a kind place and everyone should try to stay in Tulemar. It is definitely Pura Vida!

What could be better then Tulemar!

  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We stayed at Tulemar the first week of July 2013 and had an incredible time. There were 8 of us total (two families with kids ranging in age from 6 to 10) and we all agreed it was the best vacation we'd ever taken. We had a three bedroom villa, comfortable and has incredible views. There were several pools nearby and the walks to the beach -- with side trips through the trails for sloth sightings -- were amazing. Our concierge was Chris and he is just a really lovely person. He took care of everything for us -- reservations for horseback riding and zip-lining, dinner reservations, driving us to the grocery store (!) -- it was all wonderful. All week long, we all felt so lucky to be staying at Tulemar!

Great place for families

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 villa. 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. Beautiful property, great restaurant, and overall a fantastic experience. Amazing private beach that supplied kayaks, boogie boards, life vests for the kids and food/ drink on the beach.
We could not have been have been happier with this property. When you walk out of the gates there are restaurants, a spa, coffee shop and grocery store. What more do you need. Fabulous vacation!
