A beautiful accommodation just a few steps away from the beach.
- Most amazing beach house you will find
- Private BBQ area
- Flame heated hot tub
- Comfortable beds
Imagine yourself drinking a well deserved glass of wine or tea on one of the most beautiful porches you have ever been. Amazing ocean views on your left and a view on the magnificent botanical gardens on your right
An amazing central wooden staircase leads to the centre of the house where you will be welcomed in a open living room. Now you really feel like you are in a place that you have never seen before, maybe in your dream but it is just like in the pictures. It's just like you'd imagined it, the rattan walls, the dome roof and open windows makes the place a cool staying, even with the warm temperatures on the island. The beach house is so close to the beach you actually see and feel the waves coming on shore. Rest, and enjoy the beautiful beach and sea views.
The beach house is a split level design and has a master bedroom on the top floor combined with a open living area below. Here you also find a second double bed, more relaxing space a full equipped kitchen.There is enough room for 2-5 people and you can be creative in who stays where. Even with kids, the entire space is open but gives everybody the privacy when needed.

Since 1997 i have been living in Costa Rica. The tree house started as a young mens dream and now 25 years down the road it actually still is. Meanwhile i have build different houses around different themes. Our Crystal House for instance is the latest house we build. its nearly a Tree House, the way the house is build around the tree and the same tree is totally integrated with the house design. Recycling and reusing of recycled materials is big at the Crystal House. For me the house must fit in its natural surrounding. in order to do so, you often need to integrate the surround into your building.
I am born in Holland and moved to Costa Rica at a Young age. Adventure draw me into this dream, and I loe it every day.
hope to meet you one day. Best Edsart

One of a Kind Beach House
We stayed in the Beach House, which is tucked away in a bit of tropical forest, just off the beach. The house/cabana is a work of art, from the wonderful wooden spiral staircase in the center, to the fabulous Gaudi-inspired bathroom, to the sliced tree trunk made into a table on the porch. The photos are all accurate but they do not do justice to the full charm of the Beach house which was a bit bigger and cuter than we expected.
The Beach house is definitely for anyone with an artsy and outdoor spirit. We loved breakfasting on the porch listening to all the critters surrounding the house. Throughout our stay we'd watch the sloth living just outside in the tree tops, and one morning were treated to an ajouti running behind the house. The beach in the morning was virtually deserted and felt like our own private patch of paradise.
The Tree House Lodge is first-class rustic--that is to say it is the height of luxury for a rustic natural experience, but do not expect anything like an air-conditioned, hermetically sealed hotel room. Outside are snakes, ants, and plenty of critters who can get into the beach house if you leave the doors or windows open. You enjoy a lovely breeze when the wind is blowing, but it can be humid when it is not. There are fans in the house that are very adequate and helpful, but like all fans they can be a bit loud at night. Come with an adventurous spirit and you won't be disappointed!
The staff were superb and more responsive than I've ever seen anywhere. The first morning after our complimentary breakfast (with heaping amount of delicious tropical fruits), some staff asking if we needed anything. We said that all was great and that we had everything we needed, but we suggested that some day some extra hooks in the bathroom would be handy. We we returned that afternoon, there were four additional hooks that looked like they had been there forever!

Great place to immerse yourself in the rainforest
My family and I stayed in the beach house, which was a short walk to the beautiful beach. The house was nice inside, with beautiful wood details. There was plenty of room for 5 people to sleep. The windows/doors opened to the outside, giving the house a very open-air type feel. The bathroom/shower area is very cool! The outdoor area is amazing -lots of outdoor seating with incredible views of the rainforest and trails throughout. Caleb, who works at reception, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He was a terrific, and a big reason why we enjoyed ourselves so much. On the property, we saw toucans, sloths, an agouti (or capybara, we weren't sure), crabs, iguanas, etc. We also heard howler monkeys. The only small complaints I have are the problem with ants (but this is to be expected when one is in the rainforest) and there is no sofa/sitting area in the house (however, we sat outside most of the time anyway). If you are looking for a fancy, 5 star resort where every need is catered to and the accommodations are pristine and perfect, you might be disappointed. But we were looking for an authentic experience in the rainforest with comfortable accommodations, access to the beach and forest, and friendly people. We loved it and we will be back.
The Terraventuras activities (zipline, etc) are highly recommended; they will pick you up at the Tree House Lodge.
