Great Tree House!

  • Submitted: Nov 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
The treehouse is amazing. On our arrival Tiffany had decorated the tree house and the bed with beautiful flowers which made us feel so welcome! It is very comfortable and has everything you need to have a relaxing vacation. The howler monkeys come through the trees very near the deck and the birds are beautiful, a real Costa Rica experience. The pool is constructed with natural stone and feels like a jungle pool. There is a path to the beach right across the road for a 5 minute walk to a paradise where were often the only ones on the beach. Tiffany and Kurt assure that you have a great stay and if you have a chance, go sailing with them--it is so much fun! The nearest ATM is a 45 minute walk on a dusty dirt road but you will also find a well stocked grocery store and a wondrous bakery that becomes addicting. You call always call a taxi which only runs about $3 each way. There is a very good restaurant and a mini market about a 10 minute walk away too. While we were there we experienced a lot of noise from construction of a new house on the property. Kurt arranged for us to use the pool at a very nearby resort to be away from the noise. The house is almost finished so it shouldn't be an issue for future stays. Despite the construction noise it was a very special and wonderful experience, one we will always remember!

A Romantic Treehouse in Costa Rica!

This place was was Awesome and was by far the highlight of my trip!! I went to Costa Rica with my girlfriend in November and visited La Fortuna (staying in the renown Tabacon resort and Hot Springs) as well as Monteverde but this beautiful tree house in the small but growing surf town of Mal Pais was the nicest, most romantic, and coolest place we stayed. It may be the coolest place I have ever stayed in on any trip! It is a real tree house but with amenities that weren't always available at some of the other places we stayed such as hot water, kitchen, bathroom with a spacious shower with a great view of the canopy around you and electricity. The owners, Kurt and Tiffany live nearby and kept the place stocked with a large jug of bottled water, coffee and cleaning supplies. They were super friendly and generous letting us use their phone when we wanted to book a horseback riding trip and gave was loads of valuable info about the area. The place was actually one of the least expensive rooms we stayed in on our trip and surprisingly for a tree house, was cleaner and with fewer bugs than some of the more expensive places. It's located a short walk from the main drag of Mal Pais but if you want a delicious meal, try walking the opposite way up the road to a place called Mary's. It was soooooo good! You climb up the tree house through the bottom using fairly easy steps. When you enter it the first thing you realize is how big and spacious it is. The large bed is in the center of the room with a mosquito net around it (which we used the first night but quickly realized to our astonishment that it was not necessary). The kitchen is part of the main room and has everything you would need including a small fridge but with all the great dining options around you may only be using this for beer. The bathroom was big clean and the water was hot with REAL hot water and not one of those crazy and dangerous shower heads that heats the water above your head with electricity (we paid more for a room elsewhere and got one of these scary showers that don't even work well). The whole house has a panoramic view of the area with screens covering the windows. With so many windows you'd think you'd feel exposed or something but with the all the leaves of the trees around and being above the ground, you light

Incredible!

Tiffany and Kurt are wonderful! And the treehouse is more than you can imagine. Clean, roomy, natural - truly a unique experience. There are wonderful little touches everywhere from incense, coffee, to water all around the treehouse. My husband and I had plenty of room and enjoyed the walk to the beach and town. The monkeys were spectacular, loved having coffee on the deck in the mornings! We would recommend having transportation (bike, four wheeler, car) because this is a nice, quiet distance away from town. We felt very safe the entire stay and sincerely enjoyed our nights here. We'd recommend it, no question!

The name Playa Selva "Beach Jungle" hits the spot.

What a great adventure. This was exactly what we expected and hoped for. Kurt and Tiffany are great hostess. We had a family of about 30 Howler Monkies in our tree and around every morning. I recommend this place for someone looking for adventure and enjoys getting out and and exploring during the day. Having some sort of vehicle is ideal because it is a little way to the "X" where most of the town and amenities are. Quads where $75 a day and a Little 4X4 Susuki Sidekick was $85 in Mal Pais.

We loved the tree house! It has hot water AND WIFI, two things you wont find in most homes in Costa Rica. The owner did a good job of constructing it and maintaining the true "tree house" feel. The back porch is great, we sat out there for hours at a time. The owner was very friendly and allowed us to use the pool whenever we wanted. The only negative thing I can say is if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs, the monkeys make alot of noise at night (but that should be expected I guess!) We will return next time we visit the Mal Pais area :)

Playa Selva is located in Mal Pais, which is at the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. Mal Pais is just south of Santa Teresa and is generally a more quiet environment with fewer tourists and bars, etc.

The beach is just a few minutes walk to Mar Azul, (a beautiful little beach cove & reef surf break) and other quiet beaches and couple restaurants.

The nearest mini-market is less than one mile away, and the nearest supermarket is about 1.5 miles away.

Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, Sailing Charter, and a Canopy Tour are just down the road about 1 mile!

Playa Selva is approx. a 1.5 acre property with one tree house, residential main house, bodega/workshop and a private swimming pool.

It is a small, casual, quaint family-run operation, not a large establishment.

Playa Selva also has it's own beautiful private swimming pool available for tree house guests!

In the area there are activities such as Canopy Tour, hourse-back riding, surfing, swimming, hiking and bird-watching, etc. at Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, shelling, stand-up paddle boarding, bar hopping, yoga, massage golf, hiking to waterfall in Montezuma, etc.
