Interaction with guests
Garden House by the Beach, sleeps 10 very comfortably. It does however allow 12 guests total, if 2 of the guests are under the age of 6 years. These small children, would be sleeping in either potable cribs,(provided by Garden House) or air-mattresses, which would be placed in the bedrooms which parents occupy.

The 5th bedroom, has a twin with a trundle that pulls out from under it, sleeping 2. It is not a bunk bed as described above. This bedroom is suited best for teens or nanny.

The house is situated on a beautiful hill just minutes from the beach with picture perfect views. The house is very well-maintained, clean and comfortable. We were a family of 10 with small children and the kids loved watching the wildlife (monkeys, sloths, macaws, etc..) The beach was amazing surrounded by nature. I strongly recommend hiring Tito who is a...

We chose the Garden House because of the bedrooms and baths and of course the pool that had amazing space around it to lounge. We weren't disappointed and got so much more. We had sloths, monkeys and of course the view. The house is perfect, and Asher was extremely helpful with answering my millions of questions prior to getting there....

Myra and Tito always seem to go beyond guests expectations. Sherri, thank...

We had the best time relaxing and enjoying the amenities of the Garden House by the Beach. Everything from the home to the pool to the views were impeccable! There is nothing more we could have asked for during our week away. Thank you!!

About the neighborhood
Located in the gated community of Tulemar, in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, which has been awarded by TripAdvisor as #1 in Central America. The beach is a 5 minute walk from Garden House within the landscaped gated grounds. Free shuttle service within the grounds.
There are short groomed hiking trails within the grounds along with much wildlife around the house and within the rainforest the house is situated. The sunsets are spectacular as the jungle between the house and the beach goes absolutely quite.
Nearby lies the fishing town of Quepos which is a 5 minute drive, and there are many taxis. Many good restaurants both in Manuel Antonio and Quepos many with amazing views, and again only a 5 to 10 minute drive. The new Marina in Quepos also has 2 new restaurants worth visiting alo...

No worries about getting around. If you like a private driver will be sent to the airport to pick you and your guests up and take you directly to Tulemar, and in the driveway of Garden House by the Beach.
