5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

You need some energy to climb up this tree being as it is nearly 30 metres from the ground but it is so worth it once you are up there! To be at the same level as tree tops, watching monkeys, toucans and various other birds fly past is truly remarkable at this perspective. There is a compost loo, a rainwater shower and up another level a double bed and sofa. The treehouse has been made by Peter who has just won an international award for this wonderful place as the most eco 'hotel' in the WORLD! Wow, well I think that is amazing and well deserved. Not a single nut, bolt or screw has touched this tree. Peter is a design genius! And passionate too about the local people and the environment he lives in. I highly recommend this as a once in a lifetime experience. Try it and see! more

Management response:

Wir hatten einen wirklich sagenhaft beeindruckenden Aufenthalt auf dem Baumhaus! Neben Tukanan, Papageien, Kapuziner-, Brüll- und Klammeraffen haben wir auch Faultier "Pedro" aus allernächster Nähe beobachten können! Einen besseren Eindruck vom Dschungel kann man fast nicht bekommen, als eine Nacht im Baumhaus zu verbringen. Der Preis ist definitiv gerechtfertigt für diese tollen Erfahrungen :-)! more
