Paul or Jeanne purchased this house in 2004
The treehouse is very out-of-the-box. The view is spectacular. The local people are helpful and friendly. Only a 55 minute drive from Liberia International Airport
Escape from the stress and pressures of the outside world. Our guests have written many wonderful reviews of their stays.
Hello Paul and Jeanne,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We were delighted with the entire stay and what an experience.
We had: monkeys as promised; variety of birds of which we were able to identify quite a few and will share pictures; those giant grasshoppers; frogs and toads; bats flying over our dinner plates; armadillo eating mangoes at the entrance to Pura Jungla; Papagayo winds that rattled and shook. Watched the rufous backed wrens building the nest just by the treehouse. We did couple of trips, spent a lot of time on the Junquillal beach, ate at Villa Deveena several times, at Carlos, at Lolas, ....cooked and drank and enjoyed the top deck in hammocks, visited with Rae and his lovely girl....
I hope, this does paint a picture of complete satisfaction and delight.
You have a very special place, but you know that; we would love to see it also in Green season.
We feel as we actually know you by sharing your wonderful retreat.

We were immediately comfortable in this lovely house, in an isolated and private setting a short drive from beaches, restaurants and shopping. A well-equipped kitchen and a large dining space added the option of cooking and dining in. The four of us were able to relax together without feeling cramped, and the location on a hill in the woods with a view of the sun setting on the ocean was postcard perfect. The top deck added a spot for quiet reading, napping, meditation or exercise away from the main living space. We'll be back!
Interesting ride to the treehouse. Once there it is amazing from the view to the open air living room and kitchen. It took us no time to start relaxing, enjoying the sounds of the Howler monkeys, doves and roosters. Wonderful experience.
My three teens and I stayed at the treehouse for five nights and had a great time. The place is gorgeous! Local staff were quick to help when a toilet clogged. The hosts left boogie boards out for our use, which was awesome. On-site laundry is great. Kitchen is well-equipped and I cooked frequently, made my morning coffee, etc. You must have a car. Beautiful wild beaches are minutes away for surf & sunsets. Great ceviche at nearby Playa Negra Cafe. A quick drive (45 minutes) brings you to very different beaches, calm and crystal clear, perfect for swimming & snorkeling. (Tip One: if you don't like insects, there are some grasshoppers, etc., around but keeping the lights off at night in open areas helps keep them away. Tip Two: late afternoon may be a good time to catch the howler monkeys; half a dozen of them romped and fed one late day after a rain when we put off going to the beach, such a treat!) We also had an adorable frog who hung out in one of the bathrooms. We'd peek in every day to say good morning. :) All in all, it's a real treasure, this treehouse, and I'd love to go back.
Our trip to Costa Rica was such a cool experience. This home on the hill offers more than you can imagine. It is wonderfully furnished and beautifully decorated. The bed in the master bedroom is so comfortable and the open-air style of the home allows you to interact with the natural surroundings. We had evening visits from the local howler monkeys and looked forward to their visits each night. Be sure to rent an SUV to reach this home and to navigate the roads in the area. We loved the local beaches at Playa Juanillo and Playa Negra but also ventured out on a day trip suggested by the owners. We found wonderful restaurants, interesting people and great shopping within 45 minutes of the treehouse. The only downside for us was that it was really hot while we were there. We traveled at the end of the dry season and temps reached into the 90's. The owners were great to work with us regarding the reservation. Our outgoing flight was cancelled and we had to arrive much later than expected on our first day. Paul and Jeanne made arrangements to accommodate our late arrival and followed up to be sure everything went okay for us. A part of my heart will always be in this beautiful jungle home.
Costa Rica is a special place to begin with but its charm requires a visit to a tree house on a quiet hill side overlooking the ocean. My wife and I, with three teenage boys stayed in the Treehouse for four nights and had a fantastic visit. The unique design is more open than any other structure we have ever been in and connected to the magic of Costa Rica. The cool breeze, and forest sounds wrap around on all sides and you feel like you are in the jungle tree tops when in the living room...with a coffee of afternoon glass of wine. the house is located in a remote part of the country, in a large forested area about 10 minutes from one of the best beaches in Costa Rica (Playa Negra). The drive from the airport was very easy on good roads.
The Treehouse is very clean, well supplied, with great beds, and a playful, fun design that you will never forget (in a good way). It was a great, relaxing way for us to begin our two weeks in CR over the Christmas holidays. Lots of good programs in the area like zip-lining and surfing. Walking in the forest around the Treehouse is also great as we explored the rolling landscape. Monkeys swing from the the branches right ion front of the kitchen and living room...and bedrooms. This is a true Costa Rican retreat, with great views and a wonderful quiet setting. You will enjoy your time here.
After two trips for two weeks each to this amazing refuge I can sit back and think of all the great memories of this extraordinary place with happiness. Fresh warm ocean air blowing thru the treetops as we looked out over the canopy from the open top floor of the treehouse, watching the iguana's in the jungle floor below eat fresh fruit, nitetimes looking out at the starts thru the floor to ceiling glass walls in our master bedroom, and relaxing in the hammock reading with the sounds of the jungle in the background. The house had everything we needed and is well cared for, and is private and spacious.
The country itself is welcoming, costa rican's are warm friendly people, and their are also the interesting expats who have figured out how to make a life down there running the local great restaurants.
We spent many days on the beaches, surfing, swimming, soaking up the sun, and side trips up to the hotsprings, volcano's, and offshore fishing.
This playa negra area is away from the overbuilt overtouristy (which are about an hour's drive away at Tamarindo)
and is much more to our liking, there is so much to explore, I can't wait to get back again.
A quiet, peaceful, rural area. Non-touristy. Great place to escape to. Located in a 250 acre eco-reserve. Close to several incredible beaches.

COSTA RICA VEHICLE RENTALS :
This information below refers to the LDW or collision insurance for your rental vehicle which can be waived if your credit card company covers you for this.
Regarding your vehicle, all the major car rental agencies are just outside the airport main entrance. They each have their own shuttle bus to transfer guests from the arrival terminal to their office. The information posted below refers to the Loss Damage or Collision fee on the rental vehicle. We have dealt with Avis many times www.avis.cr and have been pleased with their service.
All the major car rental agencies are just outside both Liberia and San Jose airports. It is advisable to rent a SUV rather than a car. Below is information that can save you a substantial amount on the out of country collision (Loss Damage Waiver) insurance.
We are not sure if this change applies to all the vehicle rental agencies, but it is worth checking with your credit card company to get the letter mentioned below, and take it with you. If you have this coverage, you will need to let the vehicle agency know you are covered, upon your inquiry for the rate.
There is a new change in policy to skip the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW). LDW is a protection that releases the renter from any financial responsibility in the event of collision, damages or if the car is stolen. It is best to call your credit card company to have them email you an insurance letter that that you will need to take with you if your credit card company covers you for this. Amex, which we use, calls it the Collision\Loss Damage Waiver – World-wide Coverage letter. Amex nicely emailed this to us within minutes of our phone call to them.
Avis say in their policy: “Credit card coverage: Some credit cards entitle their customers to decline the vehicle rental protection and use their coverage. We (Avis) will be happy to accept your credit card protection, however you must be aware of the following:”
“Prior to your trip you must contact your bank (or credit card company) and request written proof of your credit card protection plan, where its validity in Costa Rica is clearly stated. Such letter must be presented at the Avis counter at the time of the rental and we reserve the right of accept or not such protection”.
To make your time on the beaches more enjoyable, it is good to have the Tide Charts. The website is www.crsurf.com/costa-rica-tides-2016
