Loved the treehouse
Guest Comment Entered By Homeowner: What a great trip. Costa Rica is beautiful; every beach is the best in the world, everyone we met was friendly and helpful. We loved the Treehouse & the visits from the Howlers, so many different birds and animals – and the trees were out of this world. Ray and his vision of the grounds – which we called “Ray vision” was an inspiration. And the weather – it was the same warm beautiful temperature every day – truly Paraiso. Carlos and his team were great – both at the treehouse and his restaurant. Thanks Jeanne and Paul - until next time! John and Andrée – Roseneath, Ontario, Canada February 9 to 22, 2013

The TreehouseGuest comment entered by manager
Guest Comment Entered By Homeowner: So, from a man’s perspective….. Thanks, Jeanne and Paul for sharing your very special home away from home with us, who you have never met before. Thanks for your detailed information and coaching on how to best enjoy our time in Costa Rica – you are much appreciated. Thanks to Carlos, Ray, Lila and Reynaldo…. All very friendly and helpful, as have been all the Costa Ricans we have met. Now this amazing treehouse: A strong structure, great openness, NO front door! Beautiful teak wood stairs and flooring, great green and yellow colour scheme, carefully chosen furniture, quality fixtures and appliances…. It has a big fridge/freezer (with lots of ice-cube trays), great coffee maker, Sony radio, unlimited internet access. The house is wonderful, clean and tidy, comfortable beds, quiet – beautifully isolated location. A very well equipped home. We wanted for nothing! We especially enjoyed the Howler monkeys visiting us, and even the tree frogs. Gracias! Gracias! Edmonton, Alberta, Canada January 2013 John and Helen Ross

Just spent a wonderful adventurous week in the trees and on the trails of the Pura Jungla with some excellent surfing and friendly guides at nearby Playa Negra.Highly recommended to anyone who likes their vacations to be a little more interesting. 4x4 is a must to drive through the river, navigate the potholes and climb the occasional steep hill.

Paul & Jeanne: Our three week stay in Feb. & Mar. 2010 was spectacular in every way. An incredible structure in a beautiful setting. Everything worked and was as described. Easy access to anything we could want in an area mostly unspoiled so far. Our mistake was in booking for only three weeks! And now we have two new friends. Thanks, Lynn & Peter

Dear Paul and Jeanne –Paul, leave it to you to provide us with an adventure-of-a-lifetime, with all amenities and luxuries of being at home, in a treehouse in the Costa Rican jungle! As I await the sunrise, just before dawn on this last morning of our stay, listening to the monkeys, frogs and birds celebrating a new day, I reflect on a fantastic week here in your little piece of paradise. Every morning I had the dawn to myself while the others still slept, and listened to the “deafening” silence and peace of nature as I sipped my coffee in one of your rockers and lounged in the hammock (first time in one in almost 3 yrs.) as I journaled and contemplated my life’s many gifts and blessings. Yours and Jeanne’s willingness to share this beautiful, serene bit of heaven is truly one of them. Here are a few more of my hi-lights and fond memories to take home: occasional visits by Senior Frog in the toilet; these early mornings alone enjoying the sounds of silence; dancing in your meditation rooftop with the winds cooling me from all directions; lazy days at the beach body surfing, boogie boarding, sunning, reading and walking the shoreline picking shells and watching the crabs,; Brian finding fresh coconut and us enjoying it a few nights; throwing the compostables out the window; almost daily visits by the howlers (up close and almost personal yesterday). Then there was our overnight surprise excursion to Tamarindo for my birthday; the bumpy rides in our SUV along your jungle road; the crazy winds for the first few days and nights; the view of the Pacific thru and above the trees; the spectacular sunsets; our many runs into “town” for beer and wine; the delicious meals we were able to cook and enjoy by candlelight every night; our 2 flat tires and the adventures that came along with them; getting my hair braided; having fresh hearts of palm and beautiful avocados in our salads and finally enjoying the company of good friends that have a history with us that goes back as far as yours and mine – all of us reunited thru a tragedy that ironically has created such joy. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is a mystery, and right now is a gift, that’s why we call it the “present”.Thank you again Paul and Jeanne for enhancing the gifts in my life by sharing the gifts in yours.

An guest entry from Brenda and Jim Gervais, Toronto January 3, 2009. Paul and Jeanne...so glad your time in Costa Rica was so enjoyable...we also had a wonderful time...your place is very unique and in a lovely setting and location...we enjoyed the first week on our own and the adventures we had exploring the many beaches and towns...and just enjoying some time reading overlooking the canopy from the treehouse. The people we met were all very helpful and friendly. Our second week with our 4 additional people was amazing...our daughters and their significant others had a fantastic time and the treehouse and Costa Rica more than met their expectations. We spent our last night in Liberia at El Punto which was fantastic...would highly recommend it for any future people who might need Liberia accommodation recommendations. Our experience was a memorable one that we will cherish...

I try to save special words for special cases. La Pura Jungla and this house are wonderful. That said, read others' happy comments. I want to comment on things families worry about on arrival. Things work -- fridge, stove, laundry, plumbing. Things are clean -- rooms, showers, closets, beds. Access to the house is easy and the living space is gracious and safe. Neighbours are friendly and helpful. The local store has, among other good things, tonic water, olives and cheese. The beach is obvious from the second floor, about 6 kms away. In March it had less than 20 people on it, a small, friendly bistro, with good, cold beer for a dollar, good food and a hammock in the shade. Walking, around the house and in the area, is safe, easy and fun, on road and off and Molly, the dog, will guide you. Roads are rough but you're driving a rental; local eating places are good, easily accessed and not overbooked. Local creatures are friendly and not intrusive. Nights are insect-free and wonderfully breezy. Dress is casual. If you don't enjoy, the problem's with you . . .

We visited Costa Rica March 15-22, 2008. It was amazing!!! The treehouse is simply spectacular. My husband, our three children (ages 12-15) and I enjoyed our visit to basically a new world for us. I highly recommend visiting if you love wildlife, beautiful beaches, great food, friendly locals, and staying someplace unique... not just another Holiday Inn on the beach. This place is best for families with older children who wish to get away from the fast pace of today's modern world for relaxing and absorbing nature. The surf is excellent, the beaches are beautiful, and the kids really enjoyed boogie boarding, or body surfing by day, and hanging out watching for monkeys, playing cards, and watching DVDs by night. When you first arrive at the treehouse and climb to the top of the stairs to an expansive view of the Pacific Ocean you will be captivated, guaranteed. Be sure to visit Lolas on Playa Avallenas, the Restaurant Latinos close to the treehouse, and the pizza place near Playa Negra (our favorites)! We definitely want to go back. -The Kroezes

The treehouse is great. Truly a unique experience. I particularly liked gazing at the ocean and the howler monkeys while drinking a morning coffee. Two thumbs up!
