3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This bespoke hideaway is an island of privacy and tranquility. This 3 bed 2 bath custom home sits amidst a 140 acre reforestation project, known as the IDB Ranch. It is an excellent base for exploring the Azuero Peninsula and beyond. Just 2 miles east of the world famous surf beach, Playa Venao and only 17 west of the town of Pedasi where there are abundant restaurants as well as banks, supermarkets and a hospital, this house has it all including WI-FI just recently added if you need to stay connected!

The Tree House is an owner retreat and guest rental used to fund on-going reforestation of the 140 acre IDB Ranch. Since 2005 over 33,000 trees have been planted and all rental proceeds from the Tree House go directly towards additional planting and forest maintenance.

Visitors rave about the private hiking trails on the Ranch whether trekking along the breathtaking Viewpoint Trail Loop or taking the Secluded Beach Loop to Calabacito Beach. Both trails pass through extensive bird and monkey habitat. Additionally there are two fruit orchards near the Tree House where seasonal tropical fruit can be picked and enjoyed during your stay.

The Tree House was designed to provide a comfortable and inviting vacation experience. The upper level houses an expansive kitchen, separate sunrise and sundown balconies, a bathroom and two bedrooms with queen beds and air conditioning. The lower level has a third bedroom with air conditioning and two twin beds (can be joined to make a king bed) and a bathroom. There are ocean views from almost everywhere in the house. Visitors can watch ships traveling to and from the Panama Canal passing the nearby Frailes Islands. From July through September humpback whales can be seen breaching offshore.

                                                                  We couldn't have asked for a more special place to stay during our visit to Panama. Although the rainy season "dampened" some efforts to get around, being close to the beaches, awakening to the sounds of the birds and howler monkeys in the mornings, feeling the cooling breezes at night without the hum of air-conditioning, sitting out on the deck at night watching the fireflies communicate and enjoying the comforts of the well-equipped kitchen and accommodations was a treat worth every cent let alone being able to contribute to their reforestation efforts that are clearly visible and creating positive change. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

                                                                  Taking a tour of the nearby Achotines Laboratory for tuna research is a fine diversion for a portion of one day while you're visiting. And there are lots of fine restaurants in Playa Venao area as well as some beautiful beaches.

                                                                  Many thanks to the Scholey's!

                                                                  Ben G.USA

                                                                  This is a really nice house on a beautiful and secluded, yet easily accessible, property. The owners are extremely responsive and helpful, and the proceeds are for a good cause. I would definitely stay here again if visiting the area with a group of 4-6 people.

                                                                  An unforgettable experience at a true nature's retreat

                                                                  Shannah W.

                                                                  I went with a group of "girls" to Panama and the Treehouse and found the accommodations to be superb. We hiked on the property and had amazing views of the coast from the top, heard howler monkeys, walked on the beaches (Pedasi, Calabacita), watched sunsets over the ocean and drank coffee and wine with the macaws. Since the location is isolated, the modern gourmet kitchen makes "cooking in" easy as it provided all the comforts of home. The hosts were fabulous and the house was very comfortable. It was truly a slice of heaven away from the city and ideal for outdoor enthusiasts looking for adventure away from the crowds.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Perfect Getaway!


                                                                  My family and I had a great time in this house and its surroundings! The house is very comfortable and well designed. It has three nicely decorated rooms with a/c and a very modern and friendly kitchen where you can cook and socialize at the same time. The owner is very friendly and gives you ideas on the different things that can be done for fun. There is lots to do! A perfect place to enjoy nature. Totally recommended!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

The location is very tranquil and private, ensuring a restful visit, but close enough to be in the action at Playa Venao in just minutes. You can tell the house has been constructed with love and attention to detail. We especially appreciated the well equipped kitchen and comfortable porch/balcony. The hike to the private beach was fun, as was enjoying fruit from the orchard. It is an added bonus knowing that your stay is helping to reforest this special part of Panama. We'll be back again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
