"Believe all the great comments that you read about Tulemar! My family and I booked a week at a bungalow in the Tulemar resort through our new best friend Chris, our personal concierge for our stay. From the day we booked our bungalow until we left for the airport on our last day, Chris and the team at Tulemar made us feel like royalty. Chris made the planning process for the trip a pleasure by helping us figure out the best activities to participate in (we highly recommend the zip lining and sunset cruise) as well as the best way to get to and from the resort (he arranged for a driver to pick us up and also for local transportation while we were there). When we arrived at the resort we were amazed at the natural beauty, especially the wildlife and AMAZING sunsets over the Pacific Ocean every night. The private beach was truly breathtaking and even though the resort was booked, it was far from crowded. We took advantage of the complimentary boogie boards and kayaks and also highly recommend dining at the beach side restaurant. The facilities are truly amazing including the three pools available for families. Our 8 year old kept us busy from sun up till sun down and sitting pool side with a few drinks watching the sunset while she swam was a great way to end the day. Everyone at Tulemar and in Manuel Antonio / Quepos area were very welcoming and made us feel at home. Very safe, very clean, great food, amazing sightseeing, friendly people made this a real once in a lifetime experience. I travel internationally frequently and Chris and the Tulemar team have made Costa Rica and Tulemar our new #1 destination. We are already planning our return trip with friends and family!!! Thanks Chris for making our vacation truly amazing!!! PURA VIDA!"

"The Casa was the perfect get away with our family. The house is beautiful with all the amenities needed to enjoy time away. It was wonderful to have Oscar living on the premises. And the owner, Randy provided detailed information on the area with excellent options for Costa Rican adventures with the locals. The Quepos location was perfect for fishing, beach, nature adventures and just relaxing by the pool."

"Wow! Now we understand all the great reviews of this home. We just came home from this beautiful home and country and it was the most exciting and memorable vacation we have ever had. The home was secluded and very comfortable. The view of the mountains and Pacific Ocean was breathtaking! We had eight in our group and the home was perfect for us. We loved the deep pool, pool table and chaise lounges. We can't say enough how helpful Jose was with our vacation! He arranged for a micro van for transportation to and from the airport and arranged for another driver, Marco, for our local excursions. It turned out to be less expensive to hire a driver when we needed it than renting a car that will fit eight for all 7 days. Jose helped us arrange all the excursions and they were fantastic! We snorkeled, spotted whales and dove off a catamaran sailboat. Visited the Manuel Antonio park and saw monkeys and sloths. Played at the beach one day while enjoying the amazing food Jose cooked for us. We are still talking about his guacamole dip and chimichurri sauce!!! Zipped lined through the forest and explored waterfalls and swam in the pools below them. Even though we went in the rainy season we had sunny days till around 3 or 4 pm. The mosquitoes weren't an issue at all either. We had lunch out most days. Many of the excursions included it in the price and we grilled every night in the outdoor kitchen. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were sad to leave this paradise."

"We found Casa Wow through VRBO. Communication with Tom via email was efficient, he answered all our questions quickly and we booked right away. Placement of the house is brilliant, you have the most amazing view of the mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Pool and hot tub were a big hit with the family. Friendly concierge (Raul) who speaks excellent English met us upon arrival and gave us the tour of the house. Then he checked on us over the phone pretty much every day. Gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities. Raul also arranged for our pickup and drop off at the San Jose airport. Shuttle people met us right on time and were most courteous. House Keeper (Rolando) who lives on property in a separate villa is always there in case you need anything. Between my wife's broken Spanish and Google Translate we were able to communicate with Rolando without any problem. Rolando's dog became our adopted pet and hung out with us at the pool pretty much every day. House is beautiful both on the outside as well as the inside. We had fresh towels, fresh linens, a great kitchen, laundry, great WiFi, just to name a few house comforts. My wife really appreciated the medicine box with sunscreen and bug spray. My son and I went fishing and caught Red Snapper which we brought back and cooked on the grill. Tons of activities to do in that area. We went zip-lining with Canopy Safari one day. They pick you right up at Casa Wow and then drop you back off. Then one day we went white-water rafting with ADR (Amigos Del Rio) on Savegre River which was a lot of fun. Also a guided nature trip in Manuel Antonio followed by a most amazing time at the beautiful beach. I finished up with a nice 108" Sailfish on another fishing day. All in all The Levinson's have an absolutely wonderful place and if you are looking for peace & quite, or, fun & adventure, you will not be disappointed."
