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.

Chris, our concierge, was incredible

This place is absolutely wonderful and a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. 3 of us rented out a bungalow for over New Years and couldn't have been more happy. Chris, our concierge, was incredible. He was so helpful and kind making our stay very enjoyable by always checking in and taking care of the little things. One night brownies were waiting when we came back which is pretty awesome for 3 ladies. At one point he even piled us into his own car and drove us up the hill to the main entrance when the shuttle was a bit slower than he liked. He's also a very knowledgeable foodie so if you want the truth about where to go to get the good meals in the area, be sure to pick his brain. The guys down in the beach restaurant are very attentive and you will not so much as set foot on the beach before some nice guy is trying to place an umbrella over you. It was very surreal with all the lush greenery and fresh flowers. It was a bit tough to leave and go on to other locations around Costa Rica...they just did not compare to the wonderful experience we had at Tulemar.

We couldn't have asked for more! My favorite part of the bungalows (as a mom) was the kitchen. Traveling with teenagers can be pricy, so with the convenience of the kitchen being fully stocked ( and the store near by) it was very convenient. They paid attention the smallest detail in the kitchen, from pure Costa Rican coffee to dishes, to knives. The views!! Breathtaking!!! Sun rise to sunset everyone was super nice! Thank you! Can't wait to come back, We will tell all of our friends!

We stayed in a Tulemar bungalow

  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013

We stayed in a Tulemar bungalow for a few days on our honeymoon and we were amazed by the panoramic view of the ocean and rainforest from the 360 degrees of windows in our bungalow. In the four days we were there, we saw the power of mother nature through those windows: spectacular lightning, torrential downpour, orange and purple sunsets, and bright blue skies. We found the bungalow to be very comfortable; there was air-conditioning, a small kitchen, plenty of space, lots of seating, and comfortable beds. We walked down to the private beach a couple of times, and each time we saw sloths in the trees and monkeys playing above the beach. Down at the beach, we were given FREE towels, boogie boards, chairs, and kayaks! The infinity pool near our bungalow had an amazing view of the coast and was a great place to cool off before heading back to the bungalow. We had a friendly and helpful concierge, Chris, who gave us great suggestions for food, made reservations for us, and drove my husband to the grocery store in the rain. The resort is right in the middle of great bars and restaurant, so there is no need to eat in the resort (we thought the food and drinks were a little pricey). We had a great time and we can definitely see ourselves coming back with our friends or family in the future!

First, Chris Madrigal is the epitome of Pura Vida. Chris welcomed us via email as soon as we booked the bungalow, and he was five start customer service from there on out. He helped us plan, and book all our day trips and gave us full comfort that everything was good through his professionalism and kindness. I literally felt like I had a friend or family member who was a local helping guide me in unfamiliar territory. Chris helped with everything from planning, to directions and more. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted (by Chris and Julien) with a fresh glass of tropical juice, smiles, and comfort. Chris then drove us around and introduced us to the property and amazing staff we would get to know so well. By the time we were done, my 9 year old wanted to take pictures with the staff because they were so welcoming and truly made us feel like family. Chris, Marvin, Danny, Julien, David, and Janet are a few of those who took such great care of us. The property is stunning, clean, fun, and wild (life that is). We stayed in a bungalow and felt like the Robinson Crusoe family in a tree house. We woke the first morning to White Face monkeys jumping all over in the trees outside our windows and on our roof. We saw two sloths (thanks to Marvin the head grounds keeper), and plenty of iguanas. The private beach is beautiful, and so much better than the crowds at Manuel Antonio. The bungalow had all the amenities of home (and more), but felt so much like living in the middle of the jungle. Chris provided us beautiful fresh local flowers upon arrival, and brought warm baked brownies one day unexpectedly. He even offered to go with us to the grocery store the first day to be sure we knew were it was and that we had everything we needed. Safety was also key at Tulemar, and I never felt like I needed to be concerned at any point during our stay. Also, the food at the pool was surprisingly good, and much better than the resort food I had expected. I have been to Costa Rica four times now, and traveled the world (Africa, Australia, Hawaii, and more) and Tulemar and Chris are without a doubt the highlight of all my stays. Staying here is truly Pura Vida!!!

My family does a lot of traveling and by far this is the best trip we have taken. We went as a group of nine with some old friends. The kids loved the hot tub, pools and the beach but overall the service was amazing! I believe Eduardo was our concierge. These people made our trip a lot easier so thank you to: Orlando, Fabian, Daniela, Mariana and Michael!

We (2 adults and our 5 year-old) just returned

  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013

. From the moment we got there, everything was exceptional. We stayed in one of the bungalows, and it exceeded our imagination. It was very clean (with maid service daily), comfortable and ohmygod, the breath-taking views! Every morning, a troop of monkey would pause right outside our window on top of the trees and frolic. Every evening, an incredible sunset or bursts of clouds above the sea and forest canopy. The private beach was also lovely, as were the infinity pools and grounds. It is steep, but we were able to trek up and down to the beach without much problem. It would be harder for those with mobility issues or who weren't used to more rigorous exercise. Julien, our concierge was attentive and very mindful of recommending activities suitable to do with kids. Orlando at reception was also awesome - giving suggestions for restaurants and always super friendly. We shared lots of laughs. Thank you, Tulemar for being a home away from home in that paradise setting. We plan to be back!

We are traveling with two children, ages 8 and 11

  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013

This was stop #2 on a family trip through Costa Rica. Tulemar has since merged with Buena Vista, which means that all the pools on the property, and there are four, including one for adults only, are open to all BV/Tulemar guests. We are traveling with two children, ages 8 and 11, and really enjoyed our return to Tulemar.
We stayed in Tulemar Bungalow 111 for three nights. The Tulemar bungalows are close to the entrance as well as the restaurant and the barside pool. Check in was really straightforward and welcoming. We were offered help getting our bags to the room from our car, and were given some resort information upon check in, as well as a nice map of the resort property. Eduardo was very helpful and didn't press when he found out we were pretty self-service as a family.
The one-bedroom bungalows are like living in a treehouse. I have to admit, I didn't count the sides, but I believe them to be octagonal. They have floor to ceiling windows, so the view is wraparound. The units are separated down the middle, with one room the bedroom containing two beds, a large dresser, flat screen TV and open shelving for folded items. The other room is a large living area, with a daybed couch, two small tables and chairs, and a kitchenette with a low countertop good for sitting at. The bathroom is off both rooms and takes up a portion of the octagon closest to the front door, at ground level. The room is very large with plenty of space for our family of four. A bonus is that there are plentiful plugs for devices (laptops, iPads), and plenty of room to spread out. In-room coffee and a refrigerator (wet bar stocked, but they aren't silly about not letting you use it for your own beverages) are provided. There are independent AC units on either side of the room, and curtains throughout that darken the room nicely in the morning.

Our bungalow was excellent.

We spent 4 nights in Bungalow 121 during the first week of May. They were prepared for our arrival and stayed in touch throughout our visit. Chris and Dave made themselves available for any and everything we wanted. Fishing trip, guided hike, best sunset view w a drink in hand, they helped us out start to finish. Comfy beds, spacious bathrooms, and nice living space and kitchenette split over a nice octagonal floor plan. Large windows everywhere, w screens, let you get the feel of the environment. Everything is perched on a VERY steep hillside! We walked to and from the private beach but we were probably the only people staying there who didn't take the shuttles. The beach area is excellent too with helpful people who'll bring you a towel, a cold beverage, or make you a fine breakfast or lunch. We availed ourselves of all these amenities and more. Sloths, iguanas, and plenty of monkeys made the place that much more special! Walking distance to many nice bars/restaurants and security at the gate made it nice as well. We booked w Dave! Enjoy Tulemar for yourselves.

After looking online for a place to stay for a week long vacation in April, we stumbled upon Tulemar's website. We needed more information, so we called Dave directly and he helped us choose the perfect villa with an amazing view. From the moment we arrived, our concierge, Chris, attended to our every need but was not intrusive. Tulemar is perfect -- the location, the villas, the beach, the wildlife, the surrounding sights to see, and the restful atmosphere that encourages relaxation. You won't be disappointed! Make sure to book your reservation with Dave so that your vacation is tailored to what you desire.

We were not disappointed.

We booked our stay at Tulemar online and you never really know what to expect.Chris sent us an email right away with details about our arrival and the services that are offered there. The bungalow was clean, private, spacious and unique. The grounds were impeccable, filled with sloths, monkeys and star fruit trees. Chris was our guy from start to finish. His dining suggestions were bang on and he always went the extra mile. While we were eating at a small local soda (his recommendation) he popped in just to make sure we were happy. He was clearly off duty. Local chocolates in the room and a big smile are just a few of the things that made our stay memorable. Tulemar is not a cheap place to stay by any means but it was a fun and unique splurge. Drinks poolside or at the beach were way too expensive for what you got
