Tree houses have something to say. They speak in an ancient language, and the message is universal: climb up and be in harmony with Nature.
Let go of earthbound encumbrances and be free. You may not be young enough any more to climb a tree, branch by perilous branch, but so what?
The important thing is being in the tree not how you get up in it. (Peter Nelson and Garry Hadden).
A unique experience, living in a giant coniferous tree, nestled in its branches, with nature all around you. Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and wake up in luxury. Topo's Tree House has 2 decks, with an extra 3rd little deck to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail while looking out into the jungle's tree tops and flora. You might even share this moment with a passing sloth!
The 1st floor has a beautiful tropical wood deck, with carved posts and one side which is completely a wall of the giant tree's roots, creating a mosaic of shapes, twists and turns. There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, bathroom and terrace over-looking the tropical pond with its orchids and lilies. Relax in the hammock while watching parrots, hummingbirds and toucans as they fly by.
On the 2nd deck, there is a another living room on the open air terraced with a spectacular view looking over the canopy of trees and plants. The 2 bedrooms are adjacent to the living room, each with its own window opening out into the tree's branches. The main bedroom has a 4 poster-bed with a full Queen orthopaedic mattress, lots of pillows and a mosquito net draping over it, lamps and a security safe box. The other bedroom has 2 twin beds with mosquito nets and lamps. A large bathroom with 2 sinks, a full shower with glass doors, elegant tiles and beautiful hardwood cabinets.
The 3rd deck has its private little terrace with iron wrought chairs and table , feel completely enveloped in the trees living branches with hanging orchids.
On the 1st floor, an outside shower is found in between the trees roots.
Comforts are found everywhere, from the hot running water, fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet, flat screen Satellite TV, outdoor BBQ, to a big fridge.
The large tropical gardens have been landscaped for years but retain their natural attraction. They have been nourished to be the home for different species of birds, poison dart frogs (harmless to humans by the way!), inviting sloths monkeys and butterflies. The tropical gardens are a home to much of the local wildlife. Little ponds for fish and turtles, bromeliads for frogs and flowers for butterflies. Stroll through this magical garden, truly a little Garden of Eden.TripAdvisor property ID 3465138...Read more

My Husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 week vacation to Costa Rica. This was our second visit to the Beautiful country,however our first time traveling to the carribean vicinity. Topo's Treehouse was a major highlight of our trip. We stayed Sept.28th-Oct.3rd. The Treehouse has a very unique,welcoming ambiance,set in a peaceful enviroment. within just a quick walk to the beach,Bridgettes Cafe,The Reggage Bar,and a small convenient store. A little further is the cute town area of Cahuita. But we mostly just enjoyed relaxing around the Treehouse. We saw more up close wildlife,than any other location that we have ever stayed. On arrival we were welcomed by Howler Monkeys,and a Three toed Mama Sloth,just outside the Tree window/opening,within 3-4 feet distance! My husband had the luck of capturing photos of the baby,when it was out from being tucked under Mama. Later in the week saw a Two Toed Sloth climbing by the window.Truly an amazing experience! Also there is a beautiful fish/frog pond...saw green dart frogs,Red Treefrogs and more! Many great photo opportunities. Topo's Hospitality was Wonderful! He is very friendly and helpful. The first day we were tired from traveling.He helped us to order a very good pizza to be delivered(which we had more than once during our stay). Also reccommended the Restaurant Sobre Las Olas. Dined there our final night,the food was Delicious,and the location by the beach is Beautiful! We feel very fortunate to have found this Tree house paradise...and know where we will stay when we return.

Was able to stay at Topo's Tree House for a few days in late December with some friends. We visited many places in Costa Rica and Panama and this place was one of the highlights. Topo was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the Cahuita area. This is a must if you are in the Cahuita area.
We were able to hear the monkeys hollering a few times while at the property. Also there are many cool frogs and other wildlife on the property. The open air feel is great and honestly we weren't overwhelmed with bugs or the elements. The reggae bar down the road is a good time at night for some good dancing and drinks as well!
Over all a memorable experience that I hope to enjoy again sometime!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Actually sleeping in a tree, wow!
But with all the comforts. It made for a special expereince that my husband and daughter enjoyed as much as I. Waking up in the morning the the sound of howler monkeys and a sloth actually came and visited us, as he or she was passing through the trees. Its very close to the beach, a 2 minute walk at tops. There were 2 great restaurants around the corner, on the beach. Good local food like coconut chicken. With bicicyles we road into the village of Cahuita to visit the National Park and do a little shopping. There are 2 mini supermarkets with everything you need, a bank and a drugstore, plus lots of little artisnal shops. We had a great time and can recommend this place absolutely, a must, if you are looking for a tree house experience!
