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.
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.
Please visit our own page on the web at: tree-house-costa-rica (dot com) for more photos, and info.
YOU'LL NEVER FORGET YOUR TREE HOUSE VACATION IN MAL PAIS!

The tree house (playa selva) really is unique in the best kind of way. A home made cabin with all the amenities of any high brow venue. Unfortunately Kurt and Tiffany (the owners) were not around during our stay, but Kurt's mother was our host and was a very lovely woman and incredibly accomdating and made us feel very welcome. There was an abundance of wildlife to be seen all around the tree house itself, we were lucky enough to have the company of a large family of howler money's and their incredibly cute babies!
The cabin has full cooking and washing facilities, the double bed is very comfortable and comes with full but protection.
A small note for the owners - the way that you enter the cabin (through a trap door in the floor) didn't seem to have an option to lock from the inside. This would of given us peace of mind during the night, we opted for piling our belongings on top of it as to stop it from being opened. The tree house is however fully lockable and secure when you are out (it locks from the outside, not the inside)
There is a secluded beach only a few minutes walk away, however if you are surfing you might want to take the 10 minute walk toward Santa Teresa for a more consistent break.
There is a few restaurants within walking distance (Mary's was our favourite) that have great food and good prices.
The only things we would like to point out would be that if you are a light sleeper you may have some difficulty as in the tree house you are exposed to all the vibrance of the Costa Rican wildlife, and to be aware that the closest 'town' with pharmacy, shops etc, is around 20 minutes walk away.
Overall fantastic place and would recommend to anyone 100%

“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, and a bodega/garage/workshop. 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 Banyan 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. Thank you.”
