"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."

Hidden gem with National Geographic type of views!
"We were in CR for one week(stayed 3 different places) and this was my favorite place we stayed. It is truly a hidden gem! I was a little hesitant at first since I knew we would be pretty remote from town and all the tourist attractions but once we got there I knew we had found our own special paradise. We stayed 3 nights but I wish it had been longer! Deborah and Pete were wonderful hosts and have truly created a very unique beautiful rainforest paradise. The property is absolutely gorgeous with many trails that are easy to navigate (I was a little worried about snakes but Pete has done a great job of keeping the trails very manicured so there were no worries of getting lost or caught up in the jungle)
There are 2 beautiful waterfalls on the property, a river, streams, too many flowers and plants to even begin to describe. Pete has planted Mango trees, pineapple, limes, cinnamon, acai berry trees, cocoa, bananas, coconuts and much more. There are ponds, many types of palm trees and bamboo, beautiful flowers and so much more! We have 3 teenage girls and they were never bored. We explored, swam and hiked. The pictures we took look like they were done by National Geographic! Pete gave us a fabulous tour the first day (took several hours) which was even better than some of the paid tours we took throughout our trip. We also had Edgar, the chef, cook us a wonderful Costa Rican meal one night- We had Mahi Mahi, delicious! I definitely recommend signing up for this service. The house is also really unique- very open with a screened in type porch that surrounds the first floor and 2 balconies on the 2nd floor (one off of each bedroom). I was a little worried about no AC but the nights were very comfortable. It can get a little humid during the day but there is one room downstairs with AC so you can always go in there to cool off a little if needed. Roads were pretty good up to the property and even though the drive is about 30 min from town, there is a nice view and a unique authentic little Costa Rican town (really small) that you drive through. We loved seeing the Costa Rican houses, people, Soda's and even a cute little local bar. Don't hesitate booking this property! The more the word gets out, it may become difficult to get a spot here. Pura Vida!"

"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!"
