    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    This magical vacation rental is just a few minutes walk to the beach and is like no other in the area...it's built several feet off the ground in a Banyan Tree! Howler and white-faced Capuchin Monkeys frequent the property and love to visit the tree house banyan tree, providing for amazing 'National Geographic' style photo opportunities! A 4 minute walk down a short trail takes you to the closest beach, which is quiet and most often unpopulated...wonderful for your walks, nightly sunset viewing, etc. Nestled up high on ~1.5 acres of private residential property (Playa Selva) in Mal Pais, this small house offers a get-away from the busy, more tourist populated areas of Santa Teresa (about 1.25 miles away), near Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, Canopy Zip-line Tour, the fishermen&#3... more

    Additional Location Information
    Playa Selva Tree House Lodging is near the beach in Mal Pais, which is the southern most town near the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. (****Map displays the incorrect location, we're actually on what they call "160" in Mal Pais -you will not see any signs that refer to it as "160".**) Mal Pais is a relatively quiet area, away from the crowds of Santa Teresa. It is about 1.25 miles from the cruce ('intersection' between Mal Pais and Sta. Teresa. There are restaurants, bars, mini-market also in Mal Pais.

I cannot wait to go back! Yes, it is a tree house! But, with a full kitchen, comfy bed, hot shower, and lovely porch where the monkeys were checking me out. The beach is just minutes away on foot, and at night, you could hear the waves while falling asleep. The rest of the property is beautiful with a lovely... more

We stayed here for 5 nights over Christmas. Although we've never stayed in a tree house before the experience was in some ways similar to staying in a well equipped fixed tents, something we've done in Africa a few times. A unique property which must have been a real challenge to build. Set in grounds of the owner's house, the...
