vacation rental description

The tree house you dreamed about as a kid but with all the conveniences & comfort you want as an adult! Located on 120+ acres  of private rainforest reserve  just minutes away from great beaches near Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula. Only a 45 min flight from San Jose and a 10 min ride and you’re here just off a newly paved road. Unlike many other osa accommodations where it is an expedition just to get to tours & town, we are located not only where the rainforest meets the sea, but are the ONLY vacation property with easy access to town (8 miles on newlyy paved road).  We also offer full standard conveniences such as electricity.

90% of grid power in Costa Rica is renewable energy in the form of hydro power & we are on that grid. Why settle for inadequate small solar or hydro systems in rental homes when you can stay here and have nice cold drinks, ICE (without having to haul it in yourself) and fans all night. Here you can bring Ipods & cameras and charge them without worrying about not having a cold fridge or no fans at night!  The fans will keep you cool at night & you can make cold frosty blender drinks as much as you want without a long drive to town to get ice.  All you have to do here is open the freezer & take it out!

The rainforest literally comes right into your tree house and monkeys & birds pass by each day.   Also with it's own small garden dipping pool in rainforest built OVER the rover- how cool is that!!

Staying in  our Tree House is an “Upper unity “of a lifetime, 5 levels are furnished with exquisite taste and décor, with hot water and electricity, even satellite TV, flat screen TV & internet which works most of the time.  We have created a “Swiss Family Robinson /  Elegant Gilligan’s Island “ decorator motif, including amenities such as Egyptian and Turkish linens.  You will find staying with us is a“Treemendous” experience. Your 4 bedroom tree house wraps around a giant rain forest tree and boasts wonderful views of  Corcovado National Park and The Golfo Dulce ( Sweet Gulf ). All bedrooms have reading lights, and are screened in with fans to keep you cool.  You might need a blanky in the middle of the night as it is much cooler in the canopy than it i sat beach accommodations. One could describe the feeling as “Living The National Geographic Channel- Live!” Where birds and monkeys play around you all day. 10 minutes from Puerto Jimenez,  minutes  to beaches as well. Osa Peninsula beaches are beautiful cholocate colored volcanic sand beaches. Fun to visit for a few hours in the day (leave your sandals on though to walk til you get to the water line) but the samd is HOT and at night it holds that heat and attracts no seeums- little tiny biting gnats.  here we don;t have them or that heat. So go enjoy the beach at night & then come home to a very cool house- cool in more than one way!

Keep Your Cameras Close By  
Getting up early and interacting with monkeys and birds is as easy as rolling over in bed or looking over your shoulder. Getting the kids to bring you coffee in bed while you watch the morning monkey & bird show is a must! Many of Costa Rica’s most famous birds and Monkeys visit your home every day.  You will be amazed at how close you are to nature.  The canopy explodes each day with our resident Titi ( squirrel ) Monkeys performing their acrobatic and gymnastics show as they pass by, over and under our tree house. On occasion The Congo Monkeys will take up evening residency above the house and you can watch them play above the tree house. Truly an animals lovers and birders dream ! Bird watchers are especially entertained by our family of Slaty Tailed and Bairds Trogans living near the tree house. Dozens of Scarlet Macaws, Chestnut Mandibled Toucans, Fiery Billed Aracaris  and Blue Crowned Motmots  play in and around the tree each day. We also have dozens  of Tanagers, Orange Manikins, and hummingbirds galore. So the 360* views will keep you  and your cameras busy.

Organic Gardens & Rainforest Reserve
Out in front of our tree house you will find Pineapples, Breadfruit, Yucca, Lemons, Limes, Sugar Cane, Oranges, Bananas & MORE.  All fruits are seasonal and you are welcome to eat whatever is ripe!  You can ask Wilbur (our caretaker)  to help you find bananas, limes, wild cilantro, basil and oregano growing in the garden area year round. Just below our tree house are 2 km of hiking trails through spectacular primary rainforest, up over beautiful ridges, and deep into mysterious tropical canyons are miles more of wonderful hiking- guided or self guided (we have a guide available). Truly a hikers and nature lovers paradise. Don’t miss the Blue Morph, Bamboo & Ridge Trail and keep a look out for Monkeys, Scarlet Macaws,  Parrots, Toucans, Sloths, Coatis and Tayras. Our reserve is only 10  minutes from Puerto jimenez, airport, restaurants and minutes from the beach yet is so secluded you have to see it to believe it. We are not on any airline paths so it is rare to hear anything other than the birds & monkeys & sloths!  There is zero traffic  & you will not know if anyone is on the property other than you since we have over 120 acres shared only by 3 homes! (if youhave alrger groups and need to accommodate more than 8, let us know.  We have 2 other homes, one is a 5 BR/5 bath luxury home with pool and ocean views & the other is also very nice but more simply furnsiehd hoem with ocean views and is priced more budget. We can accommodate nearly 30 people depending on rooming configurations and is perfcect for family reunions and workshops or retreats.  All homes are placed far apart so there is ZERO traffic walking under your windows or in front of your door to interrupt.  Most of our guests renting only one home have no idea if there are others on the property.  We offer a caretaker 24/6 for questions and help.

Stay with us  for your vacation anytime of the year ! A vacation experience you  will never forget. 

 Costa Rica is a vacation to remember forever & ours is your home while you are here. Let me know if you have more questions & if you would like to reserve. Email is the best way to communicate with us. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Pura Vida,
Blondie & Mike

Please note that all rental homes going south towards Matapalo & Carate are off the grid- meaning
solar electricity with low power usage- fans & refrigerators lose power, camera chargers many times cannot be charged without a trip to town & need to be used carefully & sparingly. If you want to be sure of constant power & cold refrigerator you need to look north of Puerto Jimenez.  Our homes are built with almost exclusively with recycled, renewable products & all wood used was naturally fallen wood milled right here on our property- the rest was suatainably farmed teak & bamboo. We hire only our local families for cleaning,gardening,guides, etc so all your rental dollars help the local neighborhood economy & we also support our employees to continue their children's education in school. You can help in this endeavor by staying with us.
