What makes this house unique

The best place in the mountains in the Cloud Forest of Monteverde to spend your vacation in this charming artistic house with privacy and gardens amongst other tourists.

Abolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The TreeTop House was the highlight of our Costa Rican Vacation! The house used to be an art gallery, and the intricate detail within the home was astonishing. Each of the rooms in this quaint multilevel building has the lookout to the treetops. (Tree are part of the house). We were quite a large group (my two kids, husband, and sister's family) and this house provided us with the perfect mix of private space and common area. Apart from this exquisite character of the house itself, its location is close to restaurants and easy to find. Additionally, the hostess, Sabine, made our stay even more enjoyable. She helped book our tours and transportation and we were picked up at the front door! She was also available to answer any questions we had through out our time in Monteverde. All together a great stay !!!

What a fun home!

  • 5 of 5

My party of nine arrived in the middle of a rainstorm which made us a bit late but Sabine was patiently waiting to greet us. She made us fell welcome with a tour of the house and offers to book any of the adventures we chose. The home itself is one of the most interesting we've ever rented. I was a little worried about the outdoor stairways with the storm but they're all under cover and we kept dry. We used the top level for gathering and games and the rest for sleeping and privacy. The middle level deck was perfect for morning coffee. Definitely quirky, cute, and well located.We had a blast!

The best Monteverde housing for big groups

  • 5 of 5

I recommend the TreeTop House emphatically. We had an unbelievable experience here! Sabine is such a gracious host and we could not have asked for a better location. It's smack dab between the Monteverde Cloud Forest and Monteverde the town, so you can easily get to everything. Sabine made us feel right at home and recommended a lot of restaurants that proved to be some of our favorite meals in Costa Rica. Plus, there's a kitchen in the property so you can save money and cook for yourselves.

Sabine was easy to communicate with leading up to the trip, answering all our questions and helping us plan our arrival. She booked a shuttle for us to get to and from the TreeTop House. Once we arrived, Sabine helped us plan our itinerary and figure out which things to do in Monteverde.

Besides being in a convenient location, it is also in a beautiful location. The TreeTop House is surrounded by trees and there are few places in Costa Rica as magical as sitting on the hammock and enjoying the view on the upper deck.

The house itself has plenty of room for multiple families. It's nice because there are tons of beds for everyone, but it never feels too crowded. You can fit everyone while still enjoying privacy. So if you are coming with big groups or multiple families, this is the place for you.

All in all I would tell just about everyone and anyone to come and enjoy this gorgeous home away from home!

Very unique house

  • 4 of 5

There's nothing like the Treetop House anywhere else. One of our kids compared it to Alice in Wonderland's house - another thought we were living like Curious George. They especially loved loved loved swinging in the hammocks!

It's not the most comfortable place, however. The house could be upgraded very easily by just the addition of better beds (the beds are just thin mattresses on top of bedframes made with 2x4s - there are no boxsprings), mattress pads (there are none), and better linens / blankets. We found dead bugs and body hair on the sheets making me wonder if they're washed after each visitor. Our 7-year-old son was bitten by a scorpion one night that was hiding in the bedsheets. I don't blame the house for this - after all, we were staying in the jungle and these things do happen.

It's also an incredibly noisy house - if anybody upstairs (and there are four floors so there's always someone "upstairs") walks around you can hear absolutely every creak and step.

That being said, there is incredible charm here just because of its uniqueness. Also, Sabine is such a gracious host - she was so helpful booking our adventure tour at Selvatura and a night hike (both highly recommended!). And we loved being able to hear the howler monkeys in the morning.

Magical Ambiance and Setting in the Cloud Forest

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights with 6 young girls and two adult couples and we loved every minute of our experience in the tree top house and Monteverde! The house is completely unique in its architecture and attention to detail. You truly feel like you are living in a tree house with the tops of trees and the valley as your view outside of every window. Our girls (and adults) loved the balconies and outdoor staircases and feeling like you’re part of the environment but with all the amenities of a home with warm water, comfortable beds and a very hospitable ambiance. There are lots of great places to walk to from the house as well, the creamery and Stella’s café were our favorites. I wish we would have had more time to stop in on the restaurants. The whole area has an artistic vibe and the people are so helpful and kind. Sabine was also incredibly helpful in making our stay easy and enjoyable. She booked all of our excursions and gave us great recommendations—highly suggest going on the Selvatura zipline and bridges tour. We also went for a fabulous horseback ride through Sabine’s stables. She paid attention to every detail and even stayed back with my six year old who got spooked and personally gave her a one-on-one lesson to put her back at ease with horses. Everyone loved the experience and enjoyed steering their own horses instead of letting the horses follow each other at a very slow pace like most places in Costa Rica and the United States. Her horses were also very well cared for and well treated. I would highly recommend Sabine’s house and horseback riding for adventurous adults and older children that want an unforgettable an unique experience in CR.
