A charming house in a very convenient location. The house is tucked away on a small road in a lush cloud forest setting. Set atop a hill side, the views into the forest are quite tranquil. In the day it is quite calm and relaxing, we even had a sloth sighting has one strolled across a balcony. Sabine the owner... More

Staying at the Treetop House was certainly the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The house is a special unique treasure set in the treetops of Monteverde. We were traveling with my family and my sister's family: we were nine people in total. The five kids (ages 12-16) had a blast hanging out on the hammocks on the porch... More

Manazir, thank you for your review on the Treetop House. We sincerely apologize for your bad experience. December, January, February and March are the windiest months in Monteverde, and we unfortunately can’t control the weather. In the description of the house we refer to the “kitchen” as “kitchenette”. It has a coffee maker, blender, fridge, top stove with 4 flames,... More

Our stay at the TreeTop House was magical. For us, it was the perfect marriage of adventure, comfort, convenience, charm and isolation. We wanted a tree house type experience, but still wanted clean comfy beds, indoor plumbing and the ability to provide our own meals. We were two families of 4 traveling together with kids ranging from age 7-12. The... More

The house is unique, spacious, fun, comfortable and affordable. Sabine was a very helpful host. She suggested tours and helped set them up. We enjoyed them all, especially the coffee plantation tour. As good as a tree house. Nice environs. Kids really enjoyed the hammock swing. Can imagine it would be a great house for a group of 14 or... More

We loved our stay in the TreeTop House. We're a group of four teachers who bring ten students to Costa Rica every year. This was our first time staying at the TreeTop House but it won't be our last.

We thought we wanted a treehouse experience but this beautiful house hanging out in the canopy at the end of the road was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks to Sabine's great suggestions and local know-how we launched right into the heart of what we hoped to see in Monteverde. The bird watching blew our minds as did the... More

The house is very charming but not made for people expecting a high end 5 star hotel: we had a couple of bugs visit us, and the noise level is pretty high (we could hear everything our kids were saying on the floor below the one we were occupying, and vice versa)!! That said, that's exactly what we expected and... More

My friends and I were in Monteverde earlier this year. We traveled around a lot and then decided that Monteverde was one of the better places so we came back for Christmas 2013 before flying back home. The house is creatively connected to nature, it's very artsy while not being completely rustic. We stayed in the "Forest Apartment" with one... More
