The 2700 square foot villa encompasses a Teak four-post king-size bed, adjoining bathroom with coral tile floors and sandstone sinks, and an ornate hand-carved wood kitchen and living space. The unique design of this house creates romantic seclusion coupled with the imperial essence of living on a cloud.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We arrived in the evening and awoke the next morning to a breathtaking view of the mountains and Pacific Ocean from the balcony of the Potoo Treehouse. We found the villa to be spacious and comfortable. It was tastefully designed and very well maintained. We took breakfast and dinner in our villa on days when weren't exploring and would highly recommend this service to anyone visiting. Grace is an exceptional chef and is very accomodating with her menu. As another reviewer put it, she is a natural healer, and had me cured of an upset stomach almost instantly with a delicious herbal tea. Her massages are not to be missed either, but if you don't like a lot of pressure (I do) than ask her to go easy as she has very strong hands for such a tiny person.
In this extraordinary place, wildlife abounds. Each morning we were greated by poison dart frogs outside on the stairs (yes they're deadly, but they shy away from people and are adorable to photograph...nothing to worry about). In the afternoon we would watch hummingbirds dart around the trees, and were once visited by a kookaburra. If you want to see monkeys, there is a Capuchan that hangs out by the fruit stand near the road to San Isidro.
We highly recommend taking advantage of the tours to see wildlife as well. We did the Cano Island tour (made me very sea sick, but was worth it to see the hermit crabs, dolphins, and whale), the zipline tour, and the Nauyaka waterfall tour (this is a magical place, the likes of which you only see in magazines).
