We found by word of mouth Jack & Karen's retreat. It was a home away from home. The sunset from the deck over the beach was incredible. The 5 course dinner took our palette for a wonderful trip. They made us feel at home and the conversations felt like they truly invited us into their home. We learned so much... More

Stumbled on this B&B as I scanned Google Earth for beach front/lodging combinations in anticipation of 2014 Christmas holiday. I found it to be a remarkable, magical place whose images and personalities I will visit often if only in memory until circumstances allow me to physically return. Your welcoming Hosts, Jack & Karen, uncompromising hospitality left me a bit dizzy... More

We had a great time with Karen and Jack, they were so hospitable! And to be honest they could've been terribly rude and I would still go back for the food! It was that good and Karen is an amazing cook. Also managed to catch one of the best sunsets I've seen off of their back porch. If you're in... More

If you need to retreat away from the city to a quiet peaceful place, then this is the place! Ocean view cabins, lovely white sand beach, very private and friendly atmosphere. Jack and Karen are amazing hosts and every morning you get the best homemade breakfast. There is nothing like Karens homebaked sweet bread and peanut butter and freshly squeezed... More

As we entered Jack and Karen's property, I had the overwhelming feeling of amazement. Is this place real? It was like driving up to the Swiss Family Robinson tree house. We were guided up to deck, and I was silent and dumbed by the beauty of the ocean view. There was a simple outdoor Christmas tree, just like the one... More

Staying with Jack and Karen was like nothing else we have ever experienced! They are gracious and warm hosts and you can tell that they really want you to have the best experience possible. The town of San Juanillo is quaint and authentic. There are a few restaurants, a grocery, a bar and an amazing beach which Jack and Karen... More

Wonderful time in Costa Rica higlhligted by several days at Tree Tops B&B hosted by Jack and Karen. My cousin and I were looking for an uncrowded out of the way (non-resort) place and Tree Tops was a great choice. Traveling with a 4 wheel drive is a good idea as Tree Tops is located off the beaten path by... More

the food is not worth the price the view is not worth the price the place is not worth spending your hard earned money on Eat anywhere else and go to the beach just below Treetops inn for sunset and save a ton of money !

We only had dinner at the Tree Top. What a view and experience in the middle of the jungle. A must, quit a bit expensive, but everything is now expensive in Costa Rica. The ownwers are wonderfull, love to have guest and share their story with use. The food was great, a mix of new flavor. Nothing is chic there,... More

I stayed with Jack and Karen at Tree Tops several months ago and it was awesome! I wish I could go back. I travelled there as a solo female and Jack and Karen were the perfect host. San Juanillo is very, very small. There are only 2 restaurants and 1 market in the whole town. And admittedly, I'm not much... More
