Why Don Weber chose Nicaragua

Beautiful beach property in a very unique place with both a Caribbean and Latin feel.

What makes this cottage unique

Warm ocean breezes coming off of beautiful turquoise waters. Warm but not blistering hot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We really enjoyed our stay in The Treehouse. It is even cuter and cozier than it shows. Loved being away from the main parts of the island and how easy it was to get around on the bikes. Such a lovely location. Cathy, Helen, and Narry took terrific care of us from a personal pick up at the airport, delicious meals prepared on request, grocery shopping, bikes and taxis at a moments notice. All you had to do was ask. ”

Beautiful beach, comfortable, clean accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The treehouse is a charming studio apartment on Long Bay, Big Corn Island. Beach is beautiful soft sand with breezes that keep the temperatures comfortable & the bugs away. Don & Kathy have recruited some excellent staff- what would any of us do without Helen? Would definitely stay there again. The treehouse is set up to be used independently & the hosts generally don't spend a ton of time with the guests which was No problem as Helen is the go to for whatever might be needed.

Be advised that some degree of fitness is helpful as the house is up at the end of the beach & taxis can have trouble negotiating the road if it's really rainy. It's a flat walk or bike of about 700 meters to the paved road.

Too good to be true

  • 5 of 5

Don's place is exceptional. The room had everything we needed and more. Hot showers were a delight.

The most unbelievable beach is right at your doorstep. It felt like we rented a private island.

This place is a gem, with genuinely gracious hospitality. Safe. Serene. Authentic - unlike Little Corn which is far more touristy.

Perfect place for holidays

  • 5 of 5

At the begining of our vacations, we planed to stay one week there, but in front of this fantastic place we finally stayed three weeks.

We stayed there in september and were alone on the beach most of the time. The house is very nice with a fridge, a kitchen, a nice bathroom, a big bed and a nice balcony. The house was cleaned every day.

Our guests were very kind with us and always hepfull.

We had great moments and really recommand this place.

The luxury is to be alone in front of the sea and it was the case for us.

Perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week as part of our honeymoon. We've always loved Corn Island, and I had heard about this place from friends. This place is amazing, it lacks nothing. Its quiet, private, and in one of the most beautiful locations on the Island. When we arrived the room was spotlessly clean and stocked with everything we needed (even coffee). Miss Rachel's cooking is great and quite reasonably priced, although the room also has a very functional kitchen with a full set of dishes and utensils if you want to cook for yourself and save.

The bathroom was a highlight for us as well, Until now I have not seen a proper hot water system in Nicaragua. No suicide showers here. Full pressure hot and cold running water, and beautifully decorated with Island themes with shells and sea glass. This place really lacks nothing, I don't know why anyone would waste their money on some of the more expensive places on the Island. Its even directly on the beach, I could spend hours on the veranda watching the waves and smelling the sea breeze.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited here in December for my birthday unfortunately it rained almost everyday of our trip. However, it was still one of the most amazing locations we have ever been to. The The house is amazing if you are looking for a true Swiss Family Robinson adventure this is it. The island has almost no tourism most people head to Little Corn which is not really our style. When you arrive at the airport ask for the cab driver Arturo he was extremely helpful he only speaks Spanish, but this was not a prolem for us. Don and his family are helpful and welcoming but yet still give you more than enough privacy. I can not wait to return!

If you're looking for a tropical adventure you'll find it here!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for not quite 2 weeks in the Tree House and it was perfect. In February there were no bugs to be had. Island life is relaxing. You're better off if you can speak a LITTLE Spanish if you want to make trips to the market easier, but everyone at the house speaks English. But you get some fresh fruit for breakfast and look out the window to the beach while you eat. Bike around the island, hang out on the beach in front of the big house. Take a hike to the beach on the other side for water that's as still as glass. It's not for people who want to sip cocktails by the pool all day, but who wants that when you can have a vacation that gives you a new perspective on how you live your life? Loved every second of being there. If we were the type to do a vacation twice we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Heather ,Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it. At this time our drink menu is organic coconut water,but you can always add your own rum.Letting our guests shop and explore gives them a chance to discover the Island on their own terms .Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. Hope to see you again. P.S. We are currently developing a certified dive shop with the help of the head of tourism for Corn Island.Hope you return for chapter two .
