Garden House by the Beach was designed by one of Costa Rica's leading architects, who took full advantage of the spectacular ocean views and dramatic sunsets of Tulemar when designing the house. The house has five bedrooms and 3 baths. It is very family friendly and includes 4,359 square feet of living space.

The infinity edge pool is the largest pool in Tulemar measuring, 624 square feet, and also overlooks the ocean. There are indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, including an outdoor fireplace and two bars. There are private terraces upstairs, plus sundecks around the pool. A large grassy area is available for children to play.

Wild life is all around with both its sights and sounds. Howler and white face monkeys are often seen and heard.

Customer Reviews

Emilio Palmer

"What a wonderful time our family had at the Garden House. The setting is beautiful and wildlife abundant. Looking forward to a return visit to Tulemar."

Kate & Harry Sherman - San Francisco

"WOW. I still can't get over this truly beautiful home. We just returned from our too short stay in Costa Rica. Thank goodness we chose to stay at this home. All of us enjoyed the comfort and feel of having a home away from home. We spent many a day debating whether to walk to the beach or relax in our pool. It was truly a joy to wake up and hear all the monkeys and birds every morning while enjoying a strong cup of coffee. The home comes with such great services, a daily maid, Mayra who is great. We were able to have our fridge stocked with all sorts of food and goodies upon arrival and we even had a chef cook us dinner our first night there. I wish I could of stayed longer. The house is perfect and has everything you could possibly ever need. The community of Tulemar was incredibly well maintained and safe. I cant wait to go back!"

Elizaberth Summers - Salisbury, MD

"My family recently returned from an absolutely wonderful week at the Garden House. We all enjoyed every part of every day. From early morning sitting outside with our coffee, enjoying the incredible view, and waiting for the monkeys to migrate through, to wandering down to our private beach to spend our afternoons enjoying the ocean. Our favorite time of day was gathering in the pool early evening to watch the spectacular sunsets. The house was amazing. Beverley, the owner, and Thomas the property manager, made every aspect of planning for our week a pleasure. I would highly recommend the Garden House. We're already planning our next trip!"

Alette Lundeberg - Dallas

"We enjoyed ten days in this lovely home! From the view to the pool to the great bedrooms to the wonderful kitchen and dining room, this home is outstanding. Excellent maid service too! This is a perfect home for a family or large group vacation --whether reading on a spacious balcony or swimming in the pool with a view to die for. Thanks!!!!"
