About Dave Houck

My family owns property here in Tulemar Gardens. We have offered our home for rent here for several years.

Dave Houck purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Dave Houck chose Manuel Antonio

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

We booked two nights in one of the Bungalows and immediately upon arrival added a 3rd. This is a resort more than a place to stay. There's an amazing beach, two short but cool nature walks and pools around every corner. The centrally located pool/bar/restaurant has some of the best views in the area. We toured Manuel Antonio Park and to be honest we saw more sloths and monkeys on the property than at the Park. Great Service, Great Stay, I will be back.

Perfect for a couple or small family!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful about this bungalow....the resort in which it is located - Tulemar, and every person we encountered both inside and outside of the resort. David Houck was very helpful and accommodating when booking. The concierge folks we worked with - Brian and Mauricio - were just outstanding. The staff felt like dear old friends. The bungalow was clean, comfortable, and so pretty. We arrived at nighttime and when I awoke in the morning I could not stop saying 'WOW'! Every view is spectacular. Daily visits from monkeys on the deck. Adorable sloths, spectacular macaws, toucans, iguanas are everywhere. We visited in the rainy season and had more than enough sunshine and blissful days on the beach and at the resort pools.

My family highly recommends this place to anyone considering Costa Rica as a vacation destination.

Thanks again so much to all of Tico friends!

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!!
