Ever Stayed in a Real Tree House? Now's Your Chance!

This is a wonderful opportunity for a unique vacation in a real tree house nestled in a Banyan Tree where you can see and hear Howler Monkeys, a large variety of tropical birds, and other Costa Rican wildlife. Feel as though you're a part of the jungle living up in a tree in this tropical paradise!

The Playa Selva Tree House is a custom and creatively built cabin up in a Banyon tree in Mal Pais, Costa Rica. We have the only real tree house for rent in the area, with character you can not receive in any other vacation rental.

The house is a one bedroom equipped with a kitchenette, full bath with shower and hot water, indoor & outdoor shower, ceiling fan, balcony with sitting area, and it sleeps up to three people (one double bed and one single 'Murphy Style' bed).

It's situated on about 1.5 acres of private property (Playa Selva) and is a few minutes easy walk from a lovely semi-private beach cove and good surf at Mar Azul.

Playa Selva Tree House Lodging also rents surf boards and offers games such as horse shoes, croquet, and bocci ball.

See the Amenities and Activities sections for more information on our tree house, the area and what we have to offer.

We'll be happy to schedule for you any activities or appointments you'd like for off-site activities or services.

Please visit our own page on the web at: tree-house-costa-rica (dot com) for more photos, and info.

YOU'LL NEVER FORGET YOUR TREE HOUSE VACATION IN MAL PAIS!

What makes this Cabin unique

Playa Selva Tree House Lodging is a friendly, small, family run business in a very casual environment with two other cabinas/dwellings on the property, and a bodega/garage/workshop. This is not a fancy, five star hotel, but a little something different for the adventurous nature lovers.....a small, charming, unique tree house up in a Banyan Tree. Many fall in love with it, but tree houses are not for everyone... so, if you're not sure, please ask questions so that we might help you determine if it is right for you. Thank you.

My husband and I have always wanted a treehouse, so to stay in one in the middle of the jungle on our honeymoon was amazing. It is so cozy and comfortable. It gives you a home away from home feel, but in the trees! The family was so nice and welcoming. You are surronded by beautiful jungle and you are just a walk from the beach. We loved hanging out in the private pool watching the monkeys in the trees. We would totally go back! Maybe someday when we have kids! Kids would have a lot of fun I'm sure!

                                                                  Great Fun

                                                                  OUTSTANDING!!

                                                                  It is the most unique and wonderful place to stay. Every thing you could need: great, large always hot shower; kitchen where we made breakfast and the fish we caught for dinner one night, not to mention the most comfortable bed we experienced during our entire trip.

                                                                  We had breakfast every morning out on the balcony. Beautiful beach only a few minutes away, along with zip lining and fishing very close by.

                                                                  The owners are outstanding and the entire experience was wonderful. Highly recommend!

Every thing you could need: great, large always hot shower; kitchen where we made breakfast and the fish we caught for dinner one night, not to mention the most comfortable bed we experienced during our entire trip.

                                                                  We had breakfast every morning out on the balcony. Beautiful beach only a few minutes away, along with zip lining and fishing very close by.

                                                                  The owners are outstanding and the entire experience was wonderful. Highly recommend!

                                                                  We wanted something romantic and unusual and this gave that and so much more. When we found the treehouse we built our itinerary around the available dates and once we got there we didn't want to leave. We were still a little wired from traveling when we arrive, but as we lay in bed that night with the soft white netting and the gentle air from the ceiling fan, all of our cares drifted away. We whole-heartedly recommend staying here! Kurt and Tiffany were awesome. Really friendly, down to earth, and helpful with recommendations of things to do in the area. The pool was refreshing and a work of art in a lush, tropical setting. We loved walking the labyrinth, and we'll never forget the monkeys. We hope to return someday for a much longer stay.

It was so remarkable and our favorite vacation place so far, that we plan a trip back in 2016. We absolutely fell in love with the tree house and of course Mary's restaurant. I miss the Howler monkeys to this day. Plenty of day trips available. Make sure you take a sailing tour from Tiff and Kurt
