vacation rental description

Tree houses have something to say. They speak in an ancient language, and the message is universal: climb up and be in harmony with Nature.

Let go of earthbound encumbrances and be free. You may not be young enough any more to climb a tree, branch by perilous branch, but so what?

The important thing is being in the tree not how you get up in it. (Peter Nelson and Garry Hadden).

A unique experience, living in a giant rubber tree, nestled in its branches, with nature all around you. Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and wake up in luxury. Topo's Tree House has 2 decks, with an extra 3rd little deck to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail while looking out into the jungle's tree tops and flora. You might even share this moment with a passing sloth!

The 1st floor has a beautiful tropical wood deck, with carved posts and one side which is completely a wall of the giant tree's roots, creating a mosaic of shapes, twists and turns. There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, bathroom and terrace over-looking the tropical pond with its orchids and lilies. Relax in the hammock while watching parrots, hummingbirds and toucans as they fly by.

On the 2nd deck, there is a another living room on the open air terraced with a spectacular view looking over the canopy of trees and plants. The 2 bedrooms are adjacent to the living room, each with its own window opening out into the tree's branches. The main bedroom has a 4 poster-bed with a full Queen orthopaedic mattress, lots of pillows and a mosquito net draping over it, lamps and a security safe box. The other bedroom has 2 twin beds with mosquito nets and lamps. A large bathroom with 2 sinks, a full shower with glass doors, elegant tiles and beautiful hardwood cabinets.

The 3rd deck has its private little terrace with iron wrought chairs and table , feel completely enveloped in the trees living branches with hanging orchids.

On the 1st floor, an outside shower is found in between the trees roots.

Comforts are found everywhere, from the hot running water, fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet, flat screen Satellite TV, outdoor BBQ, to a big fridge.

The large tropical gardens have been landscaped for years but retain their natural attraction. They have been nourished to be the home for different species of birds, poison dart frogs (harmless to humans by the way!), inviting sloths monkeys and butterflies. The tropical gardens are a home to much of the local wildlife. Little ponds for fish and turtles, bromeliads for frogs and flowers for butterflies. Stroll through this magical garden, truly a little Garden of Eden.

At only 200 mt. down the little sand road lies the beach of Playa Negra. A well known beach for surfers. The coconut trees, the beach, the surfers, swimmers and the famous 'Reggae Bar' make it a great place to relax and enjoy life. Sit on the open air terrace of 'Reggae Bar' over-looking the beach, feel the breeze as it moves through the palm leaves, enjoy a Pina Colada and the local dish of Coconut Chicken with Rice & Beans or a fresh Redsnapper grilled on the BBQ. Friday nights are 'Live Music' dance and move to the vibes of Reggae, Calypso and Blues. For the younger generation hit the town! The streets are full of locals and tourists dancing and having fun to the music of Reggae Dancehall.

traveler reviews for this cahuita house rental

Paradise Found

Review submitted: November 20, 2013   Date of arrival: September 28, 2013

My Husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 week vacation to Costa Rica. This was our second visit to the Beautiful country,however our first time traveling to the carribean vicinity. Topo's Treehouse was a major highlight of our trip. We stayed Sept.28th-Oct.3rd. The Treehouse has a very unique,welcoming ambiance,set in a peaceful enviroment. within just a quick walk to the beach,Bridgettes Cafe,The Reggage Bar,and a small convenient store. A little further is the cute town area of Cahuita. But we mostly just enjoyed relaxing around the Treehouse. We saw more up close wildlife,than any other location that we have ever stayed. On arrival we were welcomed by Howler Monkeys,and a Three toed Mama Sloth,just outside the Tree window/opening,within 3-4 feet distance! My husband had the luck of capturing photos of the baby,when it was out from being tucked under Mama. Later in the week saw a Two Toed Sloth climbing by the window.Truly an Amazing experience! Also there is a beautiful fish/frog pond...saw green dart frogs,Red Treefrogs and more! Many great photo opportunities. Topo's Hospitality was Wonderful! He is very friendly and helpful. The first day we were tired from traveling.He helped us to order a very good pizza to be delivered(which we had more than once during our stay). Also reccommended the Restaurant Sobre Las Olas. Dined there our final night,the food was Delicious,and the location by the beach is Beautiful! We feel very fortunate to have found this Tree house paradise...and know where we will stay when we return.

Trip and Tree of a Lifetime

Review submitted: July 2, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

To begin, writing a review for Topo’s Tree House is difficult quite simply because the incredible experiences that my girlfriend and me had while staying at the tree house for five days are nearly impossible to put into words. For anyone even remotely considering trekking to Cahuita and lodging at the tree house: DO IT. No matter how many photos you see, virtual tours you take, and gushing reviews you read, your stay at Topo’s Treehouse, and the proprietor Topo, will exceed even the highest expectations. The house is literally a part of the giant tree, and is alive, well, and the perfect place to call home while in Costa Rica.

Concerning the tree house itself, the place has an almost magical vibe that runs throughout the property. While this statement may sound cheesy, the isolation, cleanliness, various areas for sitting and talking, symphony of sounds, the well-working amenities, hammocks, vegetation, wildlife (we saw frogs and a sloth with her baby), and sturdy structure of the unique house all work together to harbor a space for relaxation, one to which we will always feel connected. Everything is fully furnished and equipped with plenty of towels, pillows, blankets, soap, cutlery, etc., and the house has everything needed for cooking; Topo, staying at the guest house out back just a stone’s throw away, is just a holler away if we did need anything or had questions. We even had a few cold beers in our fridge! The beach, bars, restaurants, and a breakfast places are within immediate walking distance (maybe four minutes walking to the beach with everything else in between).

While simply staying at the tree house made our trip an unforgettable experience, Topo’s courtesy, generosity, and helpfulness elevated our trip to a higher level. He showed us around town, gave us recommendations for the best prices on virtually everything to do (canopy tours, beaches, bars, grocery, horseback riding, surfing), had an occasional drink with us, and was never intrusive whatsoever. He truly cared about our stay and his relaxed and infectious demeanor quickly rubbed off on us. In fact, we had such a great time at the tree house and in Cahuita in general, we decided to extend our stay for a couple more days, and among our many journeys in Costa Rica, staying at the tree house is our favorite memory.

If this review comes off as overzealous, I’d respond by saying that it is almost impossible to articulate how special this place and Topo are.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: It was with great pleasure to have you as guests in my treehouse. This treehouse has been my dream for many years and to now have guests come and enjoy and see the beauty I saw and envisioned, makes me feel very good, indeed. Thanks you for your lovely comments and choosing to share what we have here.

Unforgettable Experience!

Review submitted: May 16, 2013   Date of arrival: April 15, 2013

I recently went to Costa Rica with two close friends and we had the most amazing time staying in the tree house. "Topo", the owner, is one of the most amazingly friendly and generous people. He welcomed us with warm hugs, stocked our fridge with amazing fruit and beer, and helped us get the most out of our experience in Cahuita. The tree house is one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. It has all of the comforts of a modern home, yet you feel incredibly close to nature. We even saw a sloth while on the back porch! Both Topo and the Tree House are one-of-a-kind.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: Thank you, we truly enjoyed having you, it was a pleasure! We are so happy that you were able to appreciate all the surrounding beauty and the treehouse and have a wonderful vacation. The treehouse is very special for Topo and I know how much he takes it to heart for people to be able to enjoy the whole experience! Terry
