This was our first night in Costa Rica. What a nice surprise. Clean, wonderful people and a big window view (with no glass) of the gorgeous coast. We immediately took naps in the hammocks hanging under our "tree house" and slept to the sound of the waves during this nap and later in our beds at night. The place is... More

Incredible place smack dab on the beautiful Samara Beach. Four tree houses and two apartments adjacent to the pool on ground level (for people like me who can't do stairs). All have the same basic layout. Fully equipped kitchen, nice lounging area, trippy bedroom, very nice bathrooms... your own hammocks outside, bbq and sink under your treehouse with bay windows...

We LOVED our stay at Samara Tree House and would easily stay here again. The location is absolutely perfect as it is directly on the beach with a great open view of it. The area is completely gated. The woodwork is beautiful. The tree house comes with a full kitchen with everything you would need and a large fridge (but... More

I stayed in one of the beachfront tree houses last month. Views are important to me and after all the research I did on beachside accommodations with an ocean view in Costa Rica, I picked this place. Also, I chose Samara beach itself because I read that the beach is beautiful and good for swimming. I should say, I went... More

I had a great time with my friend at the tree house inn. The tree house we were in had a great of the ocean. You will have your own breakfast area below your hut with hammocks. Breakfast is made for you whenever you are ready for it. Fresh coffee was the best I've had in Costa Rica thus far.... More

Three friends and I stayed in two of the tree houses for four nights. Comfortable beds, stunning views, helpful staff, glorious beach, breakfasts passable but good local eateries. Air con would have made sleeping easier as it was vey hot at night. The tree houses are very well designed with table, BBQ and hammocks below. The owners organised our shuttle... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Tree House Inn. The property is beautiful - even more than the photo indicates. We had 2 of the tree houses. The view is gorgeous! The rooms are quite comfortable, although we spent little time indoors.The staff could not have been more gracious or accomodating. They made the stay even more pleasant. We... More

Our family of 4 stayed here & we all loved it. The breakfast was fabulous, the little pool was refreshing, the view from the living room window was wonderful, the staff was helpful. couldn't hope for more! Do note, however, this is not 4 star type accomodation. No a/c (we didn't need it) and screens over bed to keep skeeters... More

My 9 year grandson and I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights. I had a mix up with another hotel so did book a few works before and was very happy they had rooms. We did go with the poolside room as the treehouse was only available for 2 nights and didn't work with my schedule. We... More

We stayed at the Treehouse Inn for the first 5 days of our 3 week honeymoon in Costa Rica. It was a easy transfer from Nosara airport in the taxi which Heidi had kindly arranged for us. From the minute we arrived, we loved the Treehouse. It was in an ideal spot right on the beach, with stunning views through... More
