  • 111 was the ideal vacation retreat...thank goodness because it rained the whole time!

    "Tulemar was lovely and unit 111 was spic and span clean, stylish and the perfect retreat for our rainy, rainy, rainy! week in Costa Rica. We visited several resorts for meals and drinks and we were so glad we chose Tulemar, even though the others had their pluses. Best of all at Tulemar was the private beach with friendly staff to assist with anything ie. free kayaks, towels, etc. David-- the beach manager-- was so friendly and just wonderful. And our housekeeper, Sondra, did an excellent job. Frank, our concierge, wasn't anyone to rave about. As he showed us our unit upon arrival & we asked questions, he seemed disinterested, unless we wanted to book activities through him. VRBO/Tulemar said the concierge would be "checking in on us" during our stay, and we never heard a word from him after checking in. Considering it was pouring rain 5 out of the 7 days, it may have been nice of him to give us a text to perhaps suggest some rainy day activities. We found our own eventually, including the mangrove tour, which was in a covered boat so the rain wasn't an issue."

  • Perfect winter get-away

    "My husband and two kids (5 and 7) stayed at Casa Sandra for 10 nights over the Christmas holidays, and it was just perfect. We generally always rent a car, but this house and the area seems so well set up for tours with transportation and easy taxis from the San Juan airport and back (a 2.5-3hr drive) that we didn't even need to do that. It was almost like a private hotel with the services - the fantastic Angie arranged all of our outings as requested before we got there, and one we added while there, and the housekeeper came several times during our stay to tidy up and change sheets. We made breakfast in and occasionally had dinner in, but it was so easy to walk to tons of different restaurants from the house. It was really spacious, INCREDIBLY clean, had comfortable beds, sheets and towels, and the bathrooms were spacious as well. The pool on the upper (covered) terrace was a great break from the beach (and easy 5 minute cab or bus away - $2-$5), especially for the kids, and the hammocks and hanging chairs were a great place to relax. The view to the ocean for our nightly sunset was also phenomenal. The only downer was that we left our two little tubes floating in the pool, and one day the monkeys caught sight of them unattended and stole them away! They were a real sight. All in all, a fantastic trip and a great place to stay. The owners were also very communicative and easy to deal with."

  • Amazing stay in the middle of a tropical jungle

    "We had a wonderful time at the villa, enjoyed its open concept with all the animal sounds at night, and seeing monkeys and sloths during the day. It is amazingly well equipped, beautifully and comfortably furnished, and really a home away from home (only much better!). While there, I read one of the mysteries written by the original owner, William Deverell and found it very interesting (many of his books and many other books are on a shelf inside the TV cabinet with more in the downstairs bedroom). There were 7 of us staying there, with enough space and privacy for all of us, and even a crib and a high chair for our 15-month-old granddaughter. The pool was refreshing and long enough for swimming short laps. We spent many pleasant hours watching the jungle and the wildlife from its deck. Rebecca and Jacob, the property managers, were extremely kind, helpful, and always available at a few minutes' notice. There is a small store a few steps away, and many good restaurants within walking distance. We especially enjoyed Burritos just around the corner. The beach is a short drive away down the hill. The main part does get a bit crowded and parking is a bit of an issue . Some guys try to stop you driving down trying to make you park much earlier than at the end of the road and charge $5 to guard your vehicle. If you go to Manuel Antonio Park around 8 AM, there is plenty of parking space in the large parking lot at the very end of the road and it costs $4 for the day. A better option is taking the local bus. We visited Manuel Antonio Park ($16) - beautiful beaches, lots of monkeys, sloths, raccoons, koati, and deer- and the Rainmaker Conservation Project ($20) about 30 min north of Manuel Antonio, which was absolutely amazing - hanging bridges, waterfalls - we swam in one- and a nice lunch for an extra $5. We also drove to Dominical and took the road inland up to a point with a beautiful view and a good soda where we had lunch. All in all, it was an amazing experience that we will remember forever."
