A great and fascinating jungle experience in the middle of the Caribbean rainforest of Costa Rica! The distinguished houses on 16+ acres of private property are situated in the Gandoca Manzanillo wildlife refuge, with the beautiful Caribbean sea less than 2 miles away.


The fully equipped houses on stilts are beautifully and interestingly designed. They are built on poles so you have the feeling you are living and sleeping between treetops. The houses have round shapes, rich colors and exciting features. Every house has its own jacuzzi from which you can see the jungle and its wildlife. The houses have a fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom, large living room with an extra sleeping sofa/bed, luxury bathroom, safe, air conditioning (at extra cost) and all beds have the best orthopedic mattresses with good quality mosquito nets.


Experience the jungle like never before. Have the monkeys waiting outside your window as you wake up to the sounds of tropical birds singing (more than 100 species counted on the property).

There are sloths, nosebears, other mammals, frogs, and so much more.


Let comfort surround you while you are relaxing in the Costa Rican rain forest, drinking a bottle of vintage wine on your jungle porch. Have a massage, walk the private nature tracks or relax at the creek that runs through the property.


Go on one of the many excursions in the area. Visit the picture perfect & quiet Caribbean beaches just a few minutes away! Venture into Cahuita National park or the Gandoca Manzanillo wildlife refuge.


Enjoy a night out in the bustling beach town of Puerto Viejo (9 miles away). But most of all look forward to waking up in a jungle paradise that seems to have been created especially for you.
