It was a neat place with a pretty view of the mountainside and little river down below. We were greeted by monkeys towards our last days there, which was pretty neat. The first level shower was falling apart - literally....we could see the shower water pour out through the crack between the wall and floor..so that was a little frightening. The middle level with the two bedrooms on each side was neat, but had no bathroom or sink...or any place to unpack like drawers or shelves...so we had to blindly shuffle downstairs in rainstorms to find the bathroom the size of an outhouse because the motion-sensor light was out or broken...or something. The upstairs set up was nice. It was the only level that had a real kitchen with a sink and a real shower that wasn't collapsing so our three families spent the majority of time hanging out there and also outside in the mezzanine patio area. This place is really interesting because it truly is a tree house, which is very unique. But this isn't a four or five star place...this is more of a cabin-like setting. I don't even think there were fans for airflow..and honestly sometimes the humidity was a bit stifling. Am I kind of a priss? No...but at the same time my mind was set for a more relaxing time where running water is taken for granted and we didn't have to share just one shower. But if you're up for an adventurous time in a treehouse, then this place is it!
Our host was great by the way. He had really good recommendations of the area and we took his advice on a lot of suggestions...and we were not disappointed for the area tours.
