Treetops was the perfect getaway spot we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Out treetops stay was the perfect getaway spot for the two of us! Don and Karen have a lush property filled with plants and trees. We were able to take advantage of the kayaks on the river, grilling out and swimming in the pool. The location is just a few minutes from the beach, local stores and restaurants. Don and Karen were very hospitable people and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our time at Treetops. We enjoyed our stay and would do it again!

We loved the tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Don and Karen's truly tropical paradise, Tree Tops. The grounds are a mini-botanical garden! Walk out on to the dock and see an alligator, a Muscovey duck, maybe a manatee or flying fish. The accommodations are delightful , decorated in true Florida beach theme. The location is really convenient, great restaurants, grocery shops and specialty stores nearby. Karen and Don are gracious hosts, friendly, helpful and interesting people.

Treetop Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely 12 days at this peaceful and restful retreat on the Imperial river. We loved the comfortable and tastefully decorated tree top apartment which has everything you need for a great vacation. After kayaking in the river, you can swim in the gorgeous outdoor pool and relax in the hot tub. We hope to come back to this beautiful and restful place.
