  • You Will Not Find Anywhere Better Than This!

    ""Wow!" is the first word we exclaimed when we arrived at this gorgeous property. "Perfect" and "Paradise" are two other words that came to mind. You will not find a better location in CR, I'm positive of it. Ken and Kim were fantastic hosts, House Manager Jose took excellent care of our every whim, and the cleaning staff kept the place spotless. The viewing deck is the only place you need to be the whole trip, because you don't want to miss seeing any of the wildlife or hearing the ocean. The splash pool was shaded, cool and beautiful. We only used the ping pong and pool tables once but what a great way to enjoy happy hour! This perfect, private sanctuary has everything you could dream of for a life-changing vacation experience. If you need to supplement your experience, Kim offered a fantastic sunset horseback ride for my daughter that she thoroughly enjoyed, and Ken set up a zipline for our whole family that was top notch - best and safest I've ever done anywhere. And as everyone else has posted, take Jose's Mangrove tour for sure! The beach is semi-private, and it is a hike to get down there, but just take some drinks and snacks and LOTS of sunscreen during low tide and enjoy the day down there. (then just have a nap after you survive the hike back up! it's not really dangerous, just tiring in the heat). Tips: Bring a book - there's nothing better than listening to the jungle and reading in a hammock. If you have a large family, bring games for the evening. You won't want to be watching TV, trust me! Get your coffee at Café Milagro right at the top of the hill - they have the best. We also thoroughly enjoyed a dinner there. Buy bananas/fruit - you'll want snacks for "jungle visitors" Bring several good cameras - trust me, everyone will be grabbing for a camera when the animals come out to play! Have Jose find you some fish - he has friends who can provide you with anything fresher than the grocery store will have. Also the ceviche is a great snack, as him about it. Pura Vida!!!"

  • Excellent Family Vacation

    "This was the BEST vacation our family has been on and this Villa was a HUGE reason why. From the spectacular ocean view to the exceptional help from the concierge service, this trip exceeded our expectations. We saw many animals including visits from White Face and Squirrel monkeys, iguanas and several varieties of birds. The Villa is perfectly located to walk just about anywhere you need to go. Restaurants, beaches, groceries, banks and more are all minutes away. Not to scare you but be prepared for a bit of a workout as it seems everywhere you go is uphill!! (Good exercise) The Villa served our needs wonderfully! There where 8 of us on the trip, 4 kids and 4 adults. The private suit downstairs was perfect for our brother and sister-law and the rest of us where in the upper Villa. When we where home the pool saw the most action as our kids had a great time swimming and playing. I would highly recommend this Villa as a vacation residence and we would definitely stay there again!!"

  • First rate service and beautiful accommodations

    "What a wonderful week we had at Tulemar. Our spacious 3-bedroom villa was clean, convenient, and tastefully decorated with stunning views of the jungle and ocean. There was plenty of room for all eight of us (4 adults and 4 kids). Loved having morning coffee on our balcony, and really enjoyed the huge gorgeous showers. The kitchen was well equipped. Thanks to our concierge, Bryan, for helping us with reservations and logistics, Christopher for an amazing dinner, Daniela for the best mojitos ever, and David for his excellent service at the beach and his attentiveness to the our kids. Staff everywhere are friendly and take the time to point out wildlife - we saw sloth and monkeys daily. The beach is a bit of a hike but we enjoyed the walk and saw some great wildlife along the way. A shuttle is available for those who can't tolerate hilly terrain. Overall, an amazing experience that I would recommend without reservation."

  • Excellent in every way

    "Casa Mono Congois a coastal view holiday rental home that has no shrtcomings. The location is excellent with great forest canopy and Pacific Ocean views. Beaches and all the linked activities may be easily reached by a short bus ride or an energetic walk. Like wise for local shops and a variety of restaurants at least one of whicch is strikingly good by any standard. If you prefer to cook at home the kitchen and dining areas are beautifully appointed giving wonderful surroundings to share a meal with family or friends. The house and deck are verry spacious and well designed and is built with careful attention both to the needs of those with disabilities and careful preservation of the local environment. As a result, there is plenty of wildlife to delight you without leaving home although Manuel Atonio National Park provdes even more are is only a short ride away. The staff are efficient, helpful and charming and really help in getting thevery best out of your visit. Very highly recommended. I intend to go back very soon"
