About Cindy Houck

My family owns property here in Tulemar Gardens. We have offered our home for rent here for several years. Recently we have started booking rentals for our friends who also have homes here. This is one of those units.

Cindy Houck purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Cindy 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

The bungalow is located inside Tulemar Resort. Guests can enjoy access to the resort's 4 pools, private beach, onsite restaurant and beach cafe, and 2 scenic hiking trails with abundant wildlife all around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

First off, our family is so grateful to Mauricio our attentive concierge! He took care of tours, dining reservations, etc. and even went into town to find my wife a replacement pair of water shoes when hers broke. He kept in touch with us constantly by text and met our every need. The entire staff of Tulemar was friendly and attentive.

We stayed in a bungalow. The view was amazing and the bungalow with full refrigerator, hot plate, microwave and sink was perfect for a small family. The bungalow was in excellent condition and was very comfortable. The property is large and privacy is maintained throughout. The property is built on a rather steep hillside but the shuttle is available at all times to take you to the beach or up to the office (or anywhere in between). It is almost impossible to explain in words how peaceful and serene the Tulemar beach is. It is private and in a little cove safe for swimming, kayaking, boogie boarding and the like. The service at the beach is beyond compare. In summary, we were overwhelmed by Tulemar in every respect and recommend it to everyone whether you want a bungalow or a large house, you cannot beat Tulemar for its staff or location!!! We will be back soon and often!!

Perfect resort experience!

  • 5 of 5

Tulemar is a resort that houses about 50 privately own bungalows and villas. They have an excellent private beach with complimentary kayaks and boogie boards for guests. One of our days on the beach we saw several troops of monkeys in the trees above us. Fantastic place to stay!

What a FANTASTIC property!

We stayed in Tulemar Bungalows.... You really feel like you're in a tree house in an isolated jungle. Wish we stayed longer.

From the moment you drive onto the property you are transported into a dream. And yet, just outside the gates are all the great local restaurants and services you need.

The staff is amazing.... Everyone was so kind and genuine. From the restaurant staff to the outstanding service at the PRIVATE beach to the shuttle driver and staff. They made our entire trip a true pleasure.

The highlight of our stay was the Sloth Walk with Tom. He is an amazing guide who has a great personality. We saw 9 sloths, mating howler monkeys, and countless birds. We saw more wildlife on the property than in the park.

In fact, there's little reason to leave with the A+ beach on site.

We did enjoy the great views at the restaurant for breakfast also.


You won't be sorry.

Second time was even better!

Such a wonderful resort. Tulemar exemplifies how a resort vacation should be! The amazing bungalows/villas, beach and service are so impressive! A must on your bucket list. Tree house living where the monkey and sloths come to visit you!

Amazing Family Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at the Tulemar Bungalows. The views were spectacular - over 180 degrees of the ocean and mountainside. We (including our two girls ages 8 and 9) used the complimentary kayaks located at the private beach to paddle to a great snorkeling spot in the shared bay with some other gorgeous beaches. The hotel also arranged for a whitewater river rafting excursion which was a great family adventure. We will be back!

Best family vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

We will look forward to your return. Until then, Pura Vida, Cindy

A secluded feel in jungle paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had an outstanding experience at Tulemar. We booked a bungalow through Dave--it was the least expensive of the lodging options, but comfortable and attractive in every way. Although every home in the resort was booked, it never felt crowded--we often had one of the (clean, well-heated) swimming pools to ourselves. The beach too was uncrowded, with plenty of chairs and towels and boogie boards, and delightfully warm water. The wildlife was perhaps the highlight: monkeys partied on the roof of our bungalow, a sloth slept in a tree right on the beach, and there were colorful birds everywhere. Our concierge Chris was warm and helpful in every regard, taking us grocery shopping and advising us on restaurants and activities. Indeed, all of the staff were friendly and professional. We couldn't have asked for more.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so glad that you had a great time. The Tulemar Bungalow is a great property for up to four people. And, it is located in Tulemar which is the best area on the Pacific. What more do you want or need? We offer everything. Beautiful beach, walking trails, four pools, bar and grill at the beach, restaurant, animals galore and wonderful service. We are also walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and more. Come back and visit soon. We would love to have you. Pura Vida, Cindy Houck
