As others have noted, it is rustic yet if you love the outdoors you can appreciate its charm. It was our favorite Costa Rica airbnb. Michele and his mother were kind, helpful and charming. When we left some of our belongings there, they immediately contacted us and we were able to retrieve them. The beach just opposite their place was a gorgeous morning walk. They know and will share so much about the abundant wildlife. It was a treat.
Wonderful ! Really beautiful treehouse. Little bit outside of Cahuita (30min walk). Michele sent us a Taxi when we arrived at the Bus Station. For the rest of the days we rented a bike which was very useful to get to the village.
The Treehouse itself was amazing. Just across the street of playa grande in the middle of nature, just as the whole village of cahuita. It`s very lovely constructed and clean. The bathroom is small (of couse it`s in a treehouse ;)) but worked very well. Falling asleep with the sound of jungle and the sea is just awesome ! Thanks for the great stay Michele.
Pura vida !
Michele was a great and welcoming host. We had a great stay at the mango treehouse! It's located close to Cahuita (less then a 5 minute drive away) and a minutes walk from a black sand beach. The property amenities were great, the kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to cook.
The treehouse needed a bit of cleaning. There were a few dust issues. Despite this, we had a lovely stay.
Rustic, yes! Amazing, YES! This place is such a unique and amazing place to stay. Not only was it comfortable but it was also very beautiful. You can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves. When we were there it rained a little and the sound on the roof was really loud but just incredible. The floor in the kitchen needs a bit of work as there are some really loose spots. But overall, this is just what you would expect from a tree house. Michele is great with communication and Mirella was there for us the whole time. We had an issue with the shower and she fixed it the next day. Although kind of a pain that the water has to be really low to get hot but I think that is how showers work there? Also, there were nights an extra blanket would have been good to have. I loved our stay there!!! If you are afraid of ants, spiders or giant crickets (or grasshoppers, we weren't sure) it's probably not the place for you but if you want someplace unique, comfortable and where the hosts care about your well being and comfort, this is a great experience I would highly recommend to anyone. Very, very cool opportunity to stay in a tree house across from the beach. It's is a bit of a walk into town but we loved it and ended up having a dog that adopted us and always stopped at the reggae bar 1/2 way between town and Playa Grande. I would stay again for sure! Thank you Michelle and Mirella!
We had a wonderful stay at Michele's tree house. He was very helpful and the location was perfect for our needs.
Michele's treehouse is perfect for the adventurous traveller looking for something a bit different. It's in a great location, right by the beach and the beach itself is beautiful and quiet.
The treehouse has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and we really enjoyed using the kitchen to cook our own meals with local ingredients.
It is a rustic place to stay but I think the photos and description reflect that accurately, and it all adds to the charm.
Michele and his mother were both very friendly and welcoming and were always close at hand if we needed anything.
We would definitely come back if we were in the area again!
The treehouse is great. It is a little rustic, but it perfectly matched the photos, and it is what you expect from a treehouse. The house was very secure for our belongings, and someone was always on-site to keep an eye on things. Michele was very friendly and even gave us a couple of delicious avocados as a parting gift. Directly across the road from the house is a great black sand beach, and a lovely white sand beach is less than a 10 minute drive away.
The floor in the open air kitchen has a few soft spots, but it is a regular maintenance issue, not a sign of disrepair. If you are looking for a unique place to stay near Cahuita, and understand that a treehouse is inherently a little rustic, you will have a great time here.
The tree house is very original. However, it needs more maintenance and cleaning. We expected it was rustic, but the bathroom is run down and the carpets are very old.
Despite this, we enjoyed our stay. And Michelle and his mother are friendly and helpful.
Cahuita is a beautiful place and location of the house, though a bit far from the town, is good, very close to Playa Grande.
La casa del árbol es muy original. Sin embargo, necesita más mantenimiento y limpieza. Esperábamos un lugar rústico, pero el baño está descuidado, las alfombras son muy viejas.
A pesar de esto, disfrutamos de nuestra estancia allí. Y Michelle y su madre son amables y atentos.
Cahuita es un lugar precioso y la ubicación de la casa, aunque está un poco alejada del pueblo, es buena, muy cerca de la playa grande.
Staying in the treehouse was an amazing experience. Michele and his mother were extremely accommodating. it was awesome. if you're into a rustic vibe, definitely check this place out. the (virtually private) ocean was about 200 ft from the treehouse. Everything (restaurants, sodas) is in pretty much walking distance. thank you michele. looking forward to coming back!
A wonderful stay in an original house in a beautiful area. We loved the wood cabin and the sloth that slept at the very top of the mango tree. The open air kitchen under the house was a fun and very pleasant experience, however watch your bare feet on the bamboo floor (not easy to walk on and the nails weren't so pleasant). The mosquito net and ceiling fan were much appreciated for hot nights but an extra blanket for the chillier ones would have been nice as we experienced some cooler rainy nights. The bed was always made by the time we came home and we got fresh flowers from the garden on the kitchen table, a nice touch. Our only disappointment was the shower which could only be set either to cold with high pressure or to hot with no pressure at all which again on the chillier nights wasn't so pleasant.
Otherwise a great place we would definitely recommend and so close to the beach what more can you ask for. We even woke up to the sounds of howler monkeys in the nearby jungle!
