“Highly recommend Casa de Frutas in Tulemar”
Just finished my second vacation at Casa de Frutas and it was equally as amazing as the first. You feel as if you are in a 5 star hotel, but with all the comforts of home. With a private beach a few minutes away, there is no reason to leave Tulemar but to dine and sightsee if you wish to. Dave and his staff are there for your every need, but also respect your privacy. The Villa is absolutely amazing in every little detail. Fresh tropical flowers in every room, private pool with surrounding grounds that are kept beautifully. Tulemar is very secure with a gated community so you are very safe if you are concerned about that. You are within walking distance of both casual and fine dining, but take Dave's advise and try something "a little different" away from the area at least once. I would give it 6 stars if I could; once you go, you will be hooked!
Response from the manager Thanks for the kind words, Dann, we loved having you and your family at Casa de Frutas again and hope to see you back again soon! Dave Houck Casa de Frutas
This was our second time staying in Tulemar at Casa de Frutas. We would highly recommend this vacation and villa to anyone who wants to enjoy relaxation, amazing adventure, beautiful scenery, and an incredible casa. Casa de Frutas is situated perfectly atop a hill that provides magnificent views in every direction. The amenities are incredible and all staff members were helpful with any questions and accommodations. Dave and Maricio are perfect hosts and helped make our vacation unforgettable. Best vacation ever! Tim & Kim
Response from the manager Hi Tim and Kim....we loved having you and your family with us again....you were wonderful guests......looking forward to your next stay! Dave Houck Casa de Frutas
“my Costa Rican vacation...spectacular”
Casa de Frutas, Costa Rica If I had to be brief, spectacular would be my word of choice. However, Manuel antonio, Tulemar, and especially Casa de Frutas deserve so much more than brevity. If you want to enhance your life simply go to Manuel antonio, Costa Rica and stay in a Tulemar vacation home . If you want to have an exceptional life experience, stay at Casa de Frutas, in Tulemar. These three words, Casa de Frutas, are all you need to know to guarantee a great vacation experience. If you like that "wow” feeling, merely open the front doors of Casa de Frutas during daylight hours, the views are breathtaking. The attention to design, style and detail by the owner David are just as impressive as the views. The house staff are friendly and very accommodating. The use beautiful fresh cut flowers tastefully displayed thoughout the house is another subtle touch of class you will enjoy daily. Then there is the intangible aspect. That would be the domain of Mauricio, master concierge. Whether it is telling you the best places for dinning, setting up a great masseuse or sharing a Costa Rican cultural tidbit, having access to Mauricio drops another 5 points on your stress-o-meter. Which at this point should be around 1. And that's only because you still have to decide what to wear each day...swim suit or cargo pants. Indulge yourself, it's your vacation... Gary H. California
Response from the manager Thanks for the review on Casa de Frutas, Gary.....we really enjoyed having you and your friends stay with us.....looking forward to your return! Dave Houck Casa de Frutas
“Brunch at the Beach”
During our recent visit to Tulemar we very much enjoyed our stay at Casa de Frutas. The house is incredible and has amazing views from both levels. We had an idea about the house from the photographs and many reviews from previous guests. However, we were pleasantly surprised with an impromptu brunch we planned at the private beach in Tulemar. Not only was there a great selection of incredible items on the menu, everything was made to order. Two of our group had dietary restrictions and were accomodated without hesitation. As we look back on all the fun we had in Manuel antonio, the "Brunch at the Beach" will be an experience we will remember fondly. Although it was one of those things that was put together at the last minute, the great quality and tremendous service made it one of the more fun days of our vacation. If you choose to stay in Tulemar, make sure you work "Brunch at the Beach" into your plans!
Response from the manager Thanks and we're so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us at Casa de Frutas and it sounds like you really enjoyed our little beach bar and grill at the Tulemar Beach! We'd love to have you back again! Dave Houck
“Spectacular views rivaled only by superior service!”
Five of us stayed at Casa de Frutas for 10 days in May 2012. First of all, the home was amazing. The view from the house and the pool actually made it hard to get motivated to go to the beach. Why leave when you have everything you need? Of course, we got out and about, and when we returned, it was like walking into a brand new house again. Housekeeping was that good. The entire staff was incredible. Dave, Mauricio, and Julien make you feel like old friends. This is truly a vacation home where one can sit back, relax, and let someone take care of you.
Response from the manager Thanks, Dewayne....we loved having you and your friends with us.....hope to see you again soon! Dave Houck
“Only one word can describe Casa De Frutas. Heaven!”
From the view, staff, location, and amenities, my stay was amazing! Waking up to the most beautiful view of the ocean from Casa De Frutas is unbelievable! Watching the sunset from the pool is a sight I will always remember! A week stay was not long enough!
Response from the manager Thanks, Nick, for your comments on your stay at Casa de Frutas....we loved having you with us and look forward to your return! Dave Houck Casa de Frutas
“A true, relaxing get-away”
A truly wow! experience. The Villa easily accommodated the two other couples we vacationed with - spaces for group gatherings and sunset martinis, and very private spaces for 'quiet time'. The best surprise was the attention to detail for amenities, and especially our 'own' concierge, Mauricio. He checked with us every day for tour bookings, as well as dinner reservations. He helped us with any request. Both he and Dave were attentive. It was a true, relaxing get-away. Nancy and Phil Smith, Arizona
Response from the manager Thanks, Nancy and Phil! We loved having you and your friends with us! Mauricio really does make the trip easy, handling all of the details. Hope to see you back with us again... Dave and Mauricio Casa de Frutas
“Finest home in Costa Rica”
What words are there for paradise? First, you should know Casa de Frutas is even better than the photos -- and those are pretty spectacular. This is luxury at its best. And then, there's Dave and Mauricio who will attend to your every need. Reservations in Manuel antonio's best restaurants (even those that don't take reservations)? Or, do you want someone to come cook for you? No problem. Want to go jet-skiing, white water rafting, zip-lining? They will make it happen on your schedule. Those activities were wonderful, but we were always anxious to return to Casa de Frutas. The house is simply beyond belief. Beyond.
Response from the manager Thank you so much for taking the time to post the review....we loved having you and your family with us.....and look forward to your return! Dave and Mauricio Casa de Frutas
“In a word...Wow!”
This was our second trip to Manuel antonio and our first stay in Casa De Frutas. This is an amazingly beautiful home - incredible design and building materials, amazing vistas, elegant and comfortable. Dave, Mauricio, and the thoughtful staff of the home attend to every detail to make your stay magical - and just when you think this is as good as it could possibly get -things get even better. Fine champagne, tropical exotic flowers, hot tasty brownies, an abundant breakfast, fresh coconut water, special things for our children...We were so spoiled. We could not have asked for a better destination to ring in the new year - complete with a view of the fireworks along the coast. We loved waking up to the sound of monkeys and birds in the mornings, enjoyed the peaceful beach, and had a great time practicing our Spanish. Casa de Frutas is a very special place and Dave and Mauricio are very special hosts. We can't wait to go back!!
Response from the manager We loved having your family with us over the holidays and so glad you took advantage of the "mini course" in Spanish offered by the school right next to Tulemar! You did leave plenty of time to enjoy the beach, the park and lots of excursions as well. Hope to see you back again, soon.... Dave and Mauricio
“There are no photos that can show the perfection of Casa Frutus.”
Before leaving for Costa Rica, we checked out Casa de Frutus on the Internet and were most impressed. However, ther are no photos that can show the peace, calm and serenity of the elegant surroundings. The views and sunsets were breathtaking. The staff was efficient and pleasant in addition to providing us with stunning artistic floral arrangements throughout the Casa. Dave and Mauricio took on the responsibility of seeing to our every wish and need and made all the arrangments for our taxis, restaurants and tours, leaving us to simply enjoy ourselves. After two weeks, we returned home relaxed and re-enegerized. This was a perfect holiday!
Response from the manager A two week stay.....a true luxury experience.....we really enjoyed having you.....you were great guests.....we hope to see you back again soon! Dave and Mauricio
