Ramp entrance for those who have difficulty with stairs. Outdoor fireplace. Flat grassy backyard for children to play. Five minute walk to the beach within the landscaped grounds, no public road to cross. Free shuttle service within the grounds. Two restaurants within the grounds. Groomed short hiking trails within the grounds with wonderful vistas. .Best family beach in Manuel Antonio, and as a guest of Garden House while at the beach you will have free use of towels, lounge chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, boogie boards, life vests, snorkeling equipment, and sand toys. (You do not have to rent by the hour any of the above as you do at most resorts in the world) There is a full service bar and restaurant at the beach along with beach attendants that help you with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and will bring your food or beverage order right to your lounge chair or have a table set for you and your guests overlooking the Pacific. YOU WILL NOT BE SPENDING YOUR VACATION IN A CAR, as just about everywhere you may want to go in Manuel Antonio or Quepos is only a 5 to 10 min., drive and there are many taxis. This allows guest to do different activities during the day with no problem of transportation to and from the house, and to meet up later at one of the many great restaurants in the area, or back at the house or just about anywhere in the area. Most tours will also pick up guests right at the front door of Garden House. The day tours are a wonderful way to see the off the main road sites and well worth the money spent for memories that will last a lifetime. Your safety and your security are also of the highest concern. This is a gated community with guards, the house has safes in every bedroom, the house has an alarm system, a private guard for the evenings can also be arranged at additional cost, but at a very reasonable fee. The house manager only recommends the safest and most professional tours, guides, and professionals in the area with highly respected reputations. It is the goal of Garden House by the Beach, within our means to make each and every guest's stay a most happy and memorable one. If you want to enjoy a pool that all your guests can swim in at one time, and you want to enjoy the beach with no hassle, this is the luxury rainforest home for you. More

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.

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...
Getting around
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. He will happily help you with your luggage along with the house manager. If you have an issue with steps, there is a ramp that leads from the driveway right to the door of the lower bedroom and living area of the house. At Tulemar, you can walk to the beach within the landscaped grounds, no public road to cross. Free shuttle can also take you to the restaurant, front office, or the other three Tulemar pools. 5 to 10 min. taxi ride to just about anywhere in Manuel Antonio or Quepos you may want to go. Cars can be rented in town.
