About the property

Exotic High End Unique Off-The-Grid Treehouse, steps away from the Mopan River!

WOW! We made it! Our Home, a True Labor of Love, from the start of construction, over 3 years ago, to its completion, a few days ago, is finally ready for rental! Thank you to all those that made this amazing piece of art possible!

We are located in Bullet Tree Falls, a jungle village along the Mopan River in the Cayo District of Belize. It lies approximately three miles northwest of San Ignacio, a city that serves as the cultural-economic hub of the Cayo District. It has become the fastest growing city in Belize, with its own weekly must-see market, casino, and top rated restaurants and hotels.

This stunning 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Treehouse sleeps 6 people, rises 16 feet off the ground, sits on close to 2 acres of fully landscaped land, and is steps away from the Mopan river with a 360 degree view over the Guatemalan valley. If you are lucky, you will hear the roar of the howler monkeys at a distance. However, they will never come and disturb your peace, they will stay in their own corner of the jungle. Also, on the ground level of The Treehouse, you can enjoy an incredibly relaxing private pool, with its fountain, that could have you daydreaming in no time, if you are caught off guard...!!

The dine-in kitchen is truly inviting, and is equipped with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, professional cooking range, full size fridge and freezer, wine cooler, top-of-the line pots, pans, dish-ware, utensils, and accessories (Le Creuset among others).

Open the door of The Treehouse, and you come into an extremely well appointed office, with an iMac computer and an AirPrint printer, or you can bring your own laptop, as The Treehouse is connected to high speed internet via satellite. There is also WiFi throughout the house.

The 2 bedrooms have both their en-suite bathrooms. Enjoy unrestricted views of the Guatemalan valley from the bathtub in the master bedroom. Both bedrooms are equipped with internet Tv's for your enjoyment.

Sleep (daybed, sleeps 2), relax, watch TV, or read a book from our library in the adorable breezeway, that adjoins the master bedroom.

Come for a night, a week, or a month, and you will never want to leave! You can cut yourself from the world, and just enjoy the Treehouse, day-in, day-out, as there is enough entertainment, to satisfy the most discerning traveler, or you can enjoy the many attractions that Belize, and The Cayo district have to offer.

You'll be lured by the rugged beauty of the region, with its jagged limestone hills, low green mountains where tapirs, peccaries, and jaguars still roam free, and its boulder-strewn rivers and creeks. You'll also appreciate its diversity, in a compact and accessible package. Even on a short stay, you can canoe, kayak or go tubbing down the rivers, hike remote mountain trails, visit a Mayan ruin, explore underground cave systems, go birding or wildlife-spotting, shop at a busy local market, chill out at a sidewalk café, and dine in style at a good restaurant or by lamplight at a jungle lodge.

average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

The Treehouse is an oasis, secluded in a beautiful setting yet central to activities.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at the Treehouse. The house itself is magical with an outstanding gourmet kitchen and pool. The setting is fabulous with a long vista to the river and tropical birds everywhere. We were well looked after by both Catherine and the caretaker. We hope to return one day.

Pristine Jungle Home

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with the accommodations at the tree house. It is far better than the pictures even. It is really big. I stayed with my husband and 2 daughters and we had plenty of space to have privacy and come together. We went on an ATM cave tour through PACZ tours. They came to the house and picked us up and we did a horse back riding tour with M.E.T. Belize that far exceeded our expectations. Tito also took us to see the ruins. Tito was fabulous. He made us always feel safe and secure and is also able to assist in setting up any tours for you. He is great company and spoiled us. He takes such good care of the property and it really feels like he wants his guests to feel relaxed and happy. He even offered to take us out to dinner on his day off. He is truly dedicated to the guests and anything you need he will help you with. Sitting out on the deck listening to the sounds of the jungle was the my favorite part of the day. The pool was beautiful. When we were there there was a lot of rain but we are told that the river running in front of the property is nice for tubing which we would have loved doing. We will definitely plan to come back to this place. I have only positive things to say about the tree house and the people of Belize.

The best home away from home EVER!

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse is the best home rental we have ever stayed in! The home, property and pool were beautiful, immaculate, in incredibly unique. Although the Treehouse was awesome, the owner, Catherine and caretaker, Tito really made us feel at home and welcome!

Catherine was kind and patient in answering my questions and giving us advice. Tito, picked us up at the airport, brought us to the zoo and lunch at Cheers, and instantly made us feel at ease! My favorite part of the experience was getting to know Tito and our guides for our adventures.

My only regret was that we didn't stay an extra night. Because we were busy seeing the sites, we didn't really get to hangout on the property as much as we wanted to.

The home is well laid out, has plenty of privacy and probably to most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The kitchen was well appointed and we were able to grill each night on the deck. The pool was perfect and clean.

We found the location to be great as well. We were able to easily get to San Ignacio for groceries, a culinary class at Marie Sharp's and the best dark chocolate at AJAW.

Cave tubing (coolest cave experience ever!), ziplining and the Xunantunich ruins were and easy hour or so drive away. We used Belize Nature Travel. Kevin, our guide, picked us up and dropped us off at the Treehouse. So easy and fun. Loved him and the tours.

Guatemala is also just a short drive away and we were able to visit Tikal with a private guide. The trip although a longer drive (2-2 1/2 hours) to the ruins was so worth it! So different than Xunantunich and huge!

The last morning I was up bright and early listening to and watching the crazy birds. I really wished we would have planned an extra day to chill at the Treehouse, tube the river, and relax on the pool. But it was time for the second half of our adventure on the island to dive and fish.

I would highly recommend the Treehouse to anyone! It was perfect for our family of Mom, Dad, 21 year old daughter and 18 year old son. It would be great for a couple or two couples as well as the rooms are totally private and separate.

My advise - Plan an extra day. You won't regret it!

Beyond what we had imagined!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this gorgeous home do not do it justice. Everything about this home was perfect for our first trip to San Ignacio.

We were greeted by Tito, the keeper of the house/grounds. Tito was very helpful with everything and anything we needed. The road into the Tree House is quite bumpy and feels like it might take forever to get down, but trust me, the bumpy road is worth it! Once you see that house and where you'll be vacationing for the next several days, you forget all about the bumpy road!

Highly suggest taking up the private chef for at least one of the nights (if not all) while you stay here. Chef Ennel is amazing and gave us a brilliant Belizean meal that we are still raving about.

While here we did some cave tubbing with PACS tour, very easy to find, and very fun. We also checked out the local ruins, and found out when howler monkeys are all about! shocking!!! but cool. We also checked out the Iguana Sanctuary, very awesome if you're into large lizards! We also walked down the drive way and hoped into the Mopan River with a cooler and floated it down to Mohogany Hall where dinner and drinks were waiting for us when we got out of the river. Its about a 2 hr float; its not a fast moving river, and requires a bit of arm paddling, especially during our stay.

Saturday Market is worth the trip into town for some delicious Belizean Breakfast.

And our favorite restaurant in San Ignacio was hands down the Guava Limb. Excellent food and some very refreshing frozen mojitos.

Awesome, beautiful, wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is more beautiful than the pictures. The pictures do not do it justice. Every detail was thought out. Our family of 2 adults and 2 children enjoyed the house, the pool, and the pool table immensely. The caretaker, Tito, was super attentive and just wonderful. There's nothing negative I can comment on. We had such a wonderful time, we didn't want to leave!

The location is also central to shopping and restaurants so it was very convenient.

Thank you, Catherine, for extending your lovely home to us!
