Perfect location to relax by the pool or beach. The house is situated on a beautiful hill just minutes from the beach with picture perfect views. The house is very well-maintained, clean and comfortable. We were a family of 10 with small children and the kids loved watching the wildlife (monkeys, sloths, macaws, etc..) The beach was amazing surrounded by nature. I strongly recommend hiring Tito who is a chef with amazing talent and very accommodating to the different tastes of each family member. We hope to visit again soon!!! Pura Vida for sure....

You won't regret this choice. We chose the Garden House because of the bedrooms and baths and of course the pool that had amazing space around it to lounge. We weren't disappointed and got so much more. We had sloths, monkeys and of course the view. The house is perfect, and Asher was extremely helpful with answering my millions of questions prior to getting there. Myra the housekeeper, is perfect and does everything including laundry, Tito was our concierge and cooked for us, the food was great. Having access to the resort and its amenities was a plus.

We had the best time relaxing and enjoying the amenities of the Garden House by the Beach. Everything from the home to the pool to the views were impeccable! There is nothing more we could have asked for during our week away. Thank you!!

Our extended family, 3 families - 6 adults and 4 children from ages 6 to 11, stayed at the Garden House for a week in April and it was amazing. The house is beautiful, very clean and well cared for. The view to the west of the ocean was breathtaking with amazing sunsets every evening. The pool was very clean and toys were available for our children, who spent most of their home time in the pool. Each day we were visited by white face or howler monkeys, macaws, iguanas, humming birds, sloths and many other animals. Asher and Beverly were easy to work with and Asher set us up on trips to Manuel Antonio park, rafting and a hike to a waterfall as well as our airport transportation. All the tours were wonderful however we saw the same, if not more, wildlife in Tulemar compared to the trip to Manuel Antonio park. We decided to hire a chef, Tito, for the week and were glad we did it. Tito made amazing food, including catering to our daughter's food allergies and overall was lower cost and much easier than a group of 10 eating out. Tito was a great resource serving as the local concierge and helped us find stores, taught us about local customs/foods/drinks, and even helped arrange an impromptu surfing trip. Tito also serves as the local handy man and helped us with a few minor issues. Mayra the housekeeper is amazing and surprised us by washing our dirty laundry everyday! The Tulemar beach was very private and uncrowded and we had a blast boogie boarding. The Tulemar staff, especially Jorge the shuttle driver and David the beach attendant, were very friendly and went out of their way to help and make our stay wonderful. The only negative about this trip is that it came to an end.
