What you see is what you get! It’s a stunning complex that easily could accommodate 2 families. Our family of four stayed for nine days and had plenty of space to chill during the hot afternoons. We made use of the kitchen one night when we hosted another family for dinner under the stars! Sleeping was wonderful and you can open the windows or use air conditioning. Either is great!
Laurie was attentive and a great source of information.
You definitely need a 4x4 and the drive down to the beach is 5 minutes and approximately 10 minutes into town. Between walks on the beach, yoga, lunches, outings we probably went to and from the home 5x a day, but that’s the fun of heading to a place like Costa Rica.
We plan to return!
Would stay here again!
Great property in convenient location. Only 5 min drive to beach (best to have SUV or pickup). Amazing views. House itself is spacious and well distributed. Would recommend more shade in main area, fans in kitchen, and windows with screens to allow for breeze. Property manager was helpful to book different activities, but the house was not totally in order when we arrived (leaves everywhere, only one water jug, no propane). This was corrected once we mentioned it to her.
Would def stay here again!
Tree House in Costa Rica
This house is fabulous. Secluded, great views, lovely pool, spacious with a very functional and fun lay out. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Laurie, the concierge is terrific and can help with random questions, setting up home chefs and various excursions.
"The Treehouse in the Sky"
Our family has travelled to Costa Rica many times. This was our first time in Santiago and it is now our most favourite destination. Our stay was nothing short of perfect. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were in paradise. We affectionately named our house the Treehouse in the Sky. The accommodations, the view, the yoga retreat we were lucky to have so close to the house all made for a relaxing and surreal vacation. Having chefs in the family made evening meals in the outdoor dining area a special treat at the end of a fun filled day. Shopping for groceries was never a problem with easy access to fresh fish, meat and produce. We enjoyed a selection of restaurants on and off the beach. Laurie was the perfect concierge always available to answer questions and book excursions. The house staff were attentive and friendly and always went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you Brad for sharing your unique home nestled in the hills shared with beautiful wildlife and stunning views.
Jim, Janine and family.
We're so happy to hear that you had such a wonderful stay- please come back anytime!
Beautiful, secluded, comfortable, spacious
This gorgeous property is located up a dirt road, which at times can be very bumpy, as a lot of roads in Costa Rica are. But once you arrive, the property and view are so beautiful, the drive will seem like a distant memory. The pool is a good size, clean and shaded so the water is refreshing and crisp, a welcome reprieve from the hot Costa Rican sun. Most of the house can be left open and we only ran the AC at night in some bedrooms. Tons of fans in master bedroom which was nice. The kitchen is equipped with a decent array of dishes and utensils but no microwave, but that’s pretty typical I guess. Towels are lovely and plentiful, sheets are fine but pillows could use some refreshing. Lots of nice beach towels too.
A list of recommended restaurants and house check in dos and donts would also be helpful. But Laurie is a doll and answered all of our pesky questions very promptly. She arranged for the BEST surf instructor ever, and made dinner reservations for us and reserved our atv as well. (Hint... unless you don’t mind being really dusty, an SUV is a much better form of transportation around town.... although atv’s go faster over the rough dirt roads, you wind up covered in dust and feeling like you’ve been on “vibrate” mode when you arrive at your destination). We loved having an extra set of wheels for a day or two but overall we found that our Fortuner was the preferred mode of transport to/from the beach and Santa Teresa, which we traveled to almost nightly for dinner. So many good restaurants there!! Not much in playa Hermosa area but Santa Teresa is not too far at all. Loved being a little off the beaten path in Hermosa and felt very safe. Lots of gorgeous houses around under construction so we felt like we were in a hidden gem type of location. We had a power outage during early evening and afterwards the caretaker brought us many candles, rechargeable flashlights, and spotlights. Washer and dryer work great.
Lounge areas are mostly outside unless you want to hang out in your bedroom, but they are covered and shaded and remain comfortable even during the middle of the day. You can hear the surf, even from the elevated location, and you definitely can check out the conditions from the deck. Binoculars and yoga mats are a must. Bug spray and sunscreen too of course. But mostly it’s just a delightful house and property, beautifully built and maintained in a gorgeous location as close to paradise as one can get.
Thank you so much for your review- very helpful. Your group was wonderful and we'd love to have you back any time!
Private Training and group workouts and tennis just 5 mins away at Hermosa Valley.

Why Brad Marshall-Inman chose Santiago
We have been traveling to this area for 5 years and decided to build in 2015. It has everything we were looking for. Privacy, ocean, jungle and beach views with the close proximity of good restaurants and access to our favorite beach Hermosa.
