About Dave 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.

Dave Houck purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Dave Houck chose Puntarenas

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

Daily wildlife spottings from your bungalow. Well-kept property for leisurely walking or hiking. Private beach on-site & 4 resort swimming pools. Great location close to many restaurants, bars, & activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This resort had it all...pools, food, monkeys in the trees and a great beach! My family of 4 enjoyed everything. Michael (the driver on the property) was a pleasure and their concierge set up all of our activities. Everything we tried was delightful. Our down day at the beach was wonderful too. All of the staff are pleasant and helpful. There are also many restaurants within walking distance that my family enjoyed.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

If you're going to do the resort thing... this is the place to do it. Beautiful grounds, and the closest we've ever been to 3 species of monkey and 2 types of sloths in all our trips to CR. Great beach. Very nice accommodations. Food in the restaurants was very good, and the concierges were wonderful. Only stayed there 3 days and Ashley helped plan the rest of our trip and made reservations for us. Mangrove tour and the Whitewater rafting were incredibly fun too. Oh... do the sloth tour on the grounds. There was a sloth almost directly above our bungalow for a day and a half that we didn't even notice till the guide pointed it out.

110% the best place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and i researched for over a year as to where to stay in Costa Rica and we decided on Tulemar. PLEASE PLEASE hear me this is the best place on earth to stay. We started by a late arrival due to GPS problems and our concierge Chris talked us to our destination and waited until 10;00 P.M for us to arrive and greeted us at the the gate. Our Bungalow literally brought my girlfriend to tears. I have NEVER EVER been so impressed by such a friendly staff. To fill you in on the resort in short terms, it is self contained, No need to go to a national park to see wildlife. We saw sloths, monkeys,cool birds, different plants and insects. Add to that the multiple pools and quiet hiking trails. The private beach is off the chart in both atmosphere and service as well. They have a new cool thing with poles which are near your chairs with buttons to push for additional towels, food and drinks. Our concierge Chris was so much the gentleman and professional, it is hard to put into words how he made us feel...Anyone reading this, stop researching and go here, it has it ALLLLLL!!!!! PURA VIDA!!!!

Wanted to stay FOREVER

  • 5 of 5

This is it. The most beautiful place on earth.

We had the pleasure of passing a whole week at Tulemar. The property is stunning. Infinity pools, walking paths, restaurant, private beach, shuttle services, personal concierge and many animals to experience.

With daily maid service the bungalow was always comfortable, clean and bug free. The water is drinkable right from the tap and the beds are very comfortable.

We were able to take an easy stroll to "town" where we could have a wide choice of restaurants, shops, coffee shops and galleries to experience.

The private beach was a gift. With friendly guys to set up chairs, supply kayaks and boogie boards, towels and advice.

If you are heading to the Pacific side of Costa Rica, this is the place to stay.

Wow where to start! This place is paradise. We stayed four nights with two kids (4 and 6). It has great pools - our favorite was the family pool. We stayed in the jungle bungalows which were totally comfortable, clean, and suited our needs. There are two nice jungle walks down to a fantastic beach. You can take the shuttle back up. The beach has full service (food, cocktails, boogie boards, kayaks, towels). Our concierge, Mauricio, was super helpful. We saw sloths, monkeys, macaws and lots of lizards on the property. It really is paradise on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing service and great views. Bungalows are super nice and well equipped. We got the personal Chef one night and the food was AMAZING! The service has been fantastic and can't wait to come back! Saw monkeys on my first day and continue to look for the sloths that live on the premise! Highly recommend!!!!!

A little heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow, the grounds, the beach were wonderful, breathtaking beautiful, but the most outstanding aspect of Tulemar Bungalows is the staff! Starting with our on-line concierge, Alvaro, to the staff at reception, the drivers of the shuttle buses and the beach manager. Ending with our personal concierge, Andres, who seemed like magic as he made our last minute requests possible!
