Mal Pais Cabin Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Tree House Close to the Beach (Sleeps 2-3)
Ever Stayed in a Real Tree House? Now's Your Chance!
This is a wonderful opportunity for a unique vacation in a real tree house nestled in a Banyan Tree where you can see and hear Howler Monkeys, a large variety of tropical birds, and other Costa Rican wildlife. Feel as though you're a part of the jungle living up in a tree in this tropical paradise!
The Playa Selva Tree House is a custom and creatively built cabin up in a Banyon tree in Mal Pais, Costa Rica. We have the only real tree house for rent in the area, with character you can not receive in any other vacation rental.
The house is a one bedroom equipped with a kitchenette, full bath with shower and hot water, indoor & outdoor shower, ceiling fan, balcony with sitting area, and it sleeps up to three people (one double bed and one single 'Murphy Style' bed).
It's situated on about 1.5 acres of private property (Playa Selva) and is a few minutes easy walk from a lovely semi-private beach cove and good surf at Mar Azul.
Playa Selva Tree House Lodging also rents surf boards and offers games such as horse shoes, croquet, and bocci ball.
For some real fun, come SAILING with Mal Pais Sailing Tours! Daily tours are offered, seasonally. (sailingchartersmalpais dot com)
See the Amenities and Activities sections for more information on our tree house, the area and what we have to offer.
We'll be happy to schedule for you any activities or appointments you'd like for off-site activities or services.

What makes this cabin unique
Playa Selva Tree House Lodging is a friendly, small, family run business in a very casual environment with two other cabinas/dwellings on the property. This is not a fancy, five star hotel, but a little something different for the adventurous nature lovers.....a small, charming, unique tree house up in a Banyon Tree. Many fall in love with it, but tree houses are not for everyone... so, if you're not sure, please ask questions so that we might help you determine if it is right for you.

"The perfect ending to our travels... romantic & cozy!"
Left on 03/14/2013 for a stay in March 2013
My boyfriend and I stayed here after a few days in Monteverde and Cabuya. The tree house was by far my favorite! It was very cozy and romantic with all the amenities you could need. It was so nice to wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and birds in the trees, cook breakfast and enjoy it with a cup of coffee on the porch overlooking the lush tropical landscape. The bed was very comfortable and the shower is perfect for two ;)
I might also add that the tree house was very clean- equipped with cooking necessities, coffee maker, coffee, two eye burner, blender, fridge, cleaning supplies, towels, etc. It also felt very safe.
Kurt was super nice and very accommodating. He helped us book surfing lessons and offered us a spot on his sailing charter (which we would have done if we had more time).
The tree house is a 2 minute walk from the beach. There are several beautiful beaches in the area. My favorite was Playa Hermosa in Santa Teresa (about a 10 minute drive). There are a lot of great restaurants & sodas. The burritos at the taco stand in Santa Teresa are delish!
There is definitely something special about the Mal Pais/Santa Teresa area that warms your soul. The people are friendly and the way of life is laid back and relaxed. I hope to visit again soon. Pura Vida!
