My sister-in-law and I drove through San Juanillo and saw signs for Tree Top Dining. We were intrigued and made plans to return. We made the 40 minute trek from our accommodations and arrived at 5 on another day. We rang the bell as instructed and waited for a man and his dog to appear. When we said that we... More

A friend recommended that my wife and I, and our adult daughter, celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary by having dinner at Tree Tops. We scouted out the place by showing up unannounced and were warmly welcomed by Jack and his dog and escorted up to their deck and the most beautiful views anywhere. We were then introduced to Karen who... More

Treetops is an absolutely fantastic vacation spot. Small, out of the way, very quiet, with some of the best ocean views in Costa Rica. Jack and Karen are absolutely fantastic hosts. There is one room in the main house and two independent bungalows on their own bluff top. Definitely not a Hilton or Marriott. At the main house the shower... More

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
