Enjoy your stay in Costa Rica how it should be! Nestled in the lush jungle, with wildlife close to reach, in total peace and harmony with nature!
Lovely wooden structure, nestled in lush rain forest. THE place for nature- and animal lovers. Great porch to watch the monkeys, sloths, iguanas, birds and more. Private trail leads to platform at the river, your retreat in the jungle! NEW POOL on the property!
It's THE place to enjoy the lush rain forest and animals, away from the "tourist traps", as one of the reviews says! Only in short distance, walking or by car/taxi, you reach Quepos downtown, with farmers market, shops and restaurants. Frequent public busses take you to the famous beaches and National Park of Manuel Antonio. Day excursions and adventures can be arranged on request, with the best local companies. There is a lot of FUN out there....

From there, you have a frequent bus service (every 15 minutes, 60 cents/ride) to the beach and National Park Manuel Antonio. The drive takes about 10 minutes, also by car (parking along the beach or at the entrance of the NP)
Closest airport is San Jose (SJO), with several options for transportation to Quepos:
SANSA AND NATURE AIR are the two local airlines, taking you to Quepos or back to San Jose, the flight is 25 minutes, the ticket cost $ 75.-/pax one way. Both airlines can be found in the web and tickets can be easy purchased online.
INTERBUS AND GRAYLINE: shuttle service with several pick up and drop off locations.
The other option is a van transportation, pick up at the airport upon your arrival and drop off at the Tree House. Like that you can already enjoy your drive from the Central Valley to the Pacific Coast.
VAN TRANSPORTATION: door to door service (any time day or night)
Ask us for the current price.

No smoking inside of the house
Don't feed the monkeys !!!
Relax and take it easy!
Use the Safe for your valuables and electronics!
Lock the windows and doors!
The tree house gives a unique experience of being in the middle of the jungle among birds and monkeys. The little swimming pool in a lovely tropical garden is divine. We definitely enjoyed our stay and Thomas is great host.
I flew to Quepos from San Jose. Thomas was there at the landing place and helped me with my bags. The good gent he is!
Thomas is a very nice fellow. He is the king of Quepos with his property residing on top of the peak of the mountain.
The tree house is sweet! I believe he is already booked up for next years winter and I am not surprised.
Loved the shower and the lay out of the tree house. Insects weren't a problem in general, even so, there was a mesh night to put over the bed that helped out. One morning there was a monkey on top of the tree house roof.
Wifi was really poor, but whatever, good to get away from the electronics. The neighbors were loud at times. I could hear the bass of their music go on for hours and the dogs barked a lot too.
The stars were magnificent as the top of the mountain is the darkest area.
Quepos is in walking distance to his house (15 minute walk) and Manuel Antonio is a quick bus or taxi ride away.
Their is a restaurant in Quepos that is recommended on trip advisor, it is near the Interbus station. That is the best place to eat in the town of Quepos.
The Republik was the night life in the town or the club scene if you will. It was kind of lame and I'm talking about on a weekend late at night.
Manuel Antonio public beach doesn't have a lot of shade, the sand is boiling hot and it is a bit crowded.
The national park is good for about 4 hours. You will some monkeys...and the beaches inside the park are nice.
The breakfast places near the national park are both very good! Costa Linda is one. They serve you more than one plate of quality food and coffee on the cheap!
I don't recommend the cities of Manuel Antonio or Quepos in general, but the Tree House was Awesome!
Thanks to Thomas for being a great host!
This was our 2nd year at the tree house and it definitely did not disappoint us! Everyday we could expect the white face and squirrel monkeys to come visit and play on the deck! Birds, geckos, howlers near by, hummingbirds, and more! So much to see and hear right from the private deck! Unusually rainy for February but a welcome surprise as it lulled us to sleep at night. Thomas and Lily are 5+ star hosts, there for you when you have questions or requests but allow their guests privacy. The pool was refreshing and peaceful and night dips before you sleep is recommended! While I had the flu on arrival I cannot complain as everything I needed to relax and get better was right here at Thomas and Lili's tree house. See you next year. Pura Vida!
TIP: book very early as this tree house is always booked up well in advance!!!
The experience exceeded our expectations. Living in the trees was an enlightening and fun experience to have monkeys all around us and playing on our deck.
The treehouse was in the middle of the jungle with all the amenties you need yet close to civilation that within minutes you can be at restaurants, shops, beaches or other activities.
We stayed in the tree house for a month, and was one of the best experiences of our lives. Thank you Thomas & Lili, for sharing your little piece of paradise.
Thomas kindly booked all of our excursions which made things so simple, and he was always on hand if there was anything we needed some help with.
The tree house is out of this world, it is like having a little Manuel Antonio national park on your doorstep. We found ourselves spending a lot of time just sat on the balcony, absorbing the sights and sounds of nature.
The pool area is wonderful too, hummingbirds, butterflies, monkeys and a variety of birds can be seen whilst you just sit in the pool or laze in the hammock.
We decided not to hire a 4x4, we used public transport and taxis, and it was no problem. We walked alot! which was hot, hard work, but worth it. Quepos is only a 15 minute walk away and we saw something different on every journey. There is so much more to discover on foot :)
Thank you again, we do hope to see you again soon!
Thomas was a great host and the villa was exceptional value for a money, just a short (5mins max) drive from central Quepos.
It was also a great spot for monkey watching, which was pretty amazing.
Thomas helpfully created an excellent guide for the tree house and local area/restaurants/activities. All the recommendations we checked out were spot on and Thomas and even booked us a canyoning tour and a relaxing massage.
Thomas and Lili were fantastic hosts. My boyfriend and I stayed in the treehouse and it did not disappoint. Within the first 20 minutes of arriving we saw a sloth and a monkey, but little did we know how much more there was to come. Twice daily we were greeted by a hoard of either white faced or squirrel monkeys jumping around on the treehouse and playing on our porch. It was so much fun! The treehouse is very nice for somebody wanting to experience Costa Rican flora and fauna. You can walk to and from downtown Quepos, but it is definitely a trek on the way back up. Not enough to deter us from walking it everyday, but it's very easy and cheap to get a taxi.
As for Thomas's hospitality, it was above and beyond. He's extremely nice, helpful, and timely. He even picked us up from the Quepos airport and organized all of our activities (which were all amazing, I would take Thomas's recommendations any day).
We are looking forward to the day we get to go back!! Thank you, Thomas!!

Moved from Switzerland 16 years ago, just love it here! The people are "pura vida", life is so easy, the climate is very healthy! Very lucky to have purchased a big piece of property in the Playa Macha area, declared as green zone, where I offer the Tree House and Villa Malinche. It's almost like the National Park, lot's of wildlife and very peaceful, surrounded by lush rain forest!
My wife Lili is a licensed physic therapist, also with a great dedication for massage treatments, she can make you feel in heaven.... Don't miss an onsite treatment during your stay!
We are happy to share this relaxed jungle feeling on our property with the people we meet through Airbnb. Just lay back in the hammocks, taste the famous coffee and watch the monkeys fly by...
