This was our second visit to the Tree House and, again, had a fabulous time. The location is great, right on the beach so you have a lovely breeze all the time. The lack of A/C hasn't been an issue for us as it cools down enough at night and there is breeze as well as fans. The bedding and...

I was blown away when I showed up to the Tree House Inn. It surpassed any expectation I had..it was directly on the beach and stunning. The place was clean, had everything we needed, the views were out of this world, breakfast was delicious and most of all the staff were so lovely! My husband and I arrived and we...

Stayed in air conditioned unit 6, no kitchen but did have a mini fridge which was great. Only complaint was the very uncomfortable bed, however Oscar (manager) told us a new bed was on its way. Breakfast is included which is a nice touch. All the staff were friendly.....we all smile in the same language! Anything you needed or needed...

Unreal location literally on the beach, right in the center of samara! Amazing personal lounge area under your treehouse where breakfast is served, nice and shady with two hammocks also. Grounds neatly kept, secure gating onto beach. Lack of air con didn't really bother us. Compared to other places in Costa Rica I feel this hotel is excellent value. I...

Stayed for two nights in the larger lower unit. The location and management is great. Can walk to almost everything. This is a very chill area and shuts down early but great for relaxing. Would highly recommend kayaking to the island - you can rent next door to the tree house inn.

When we booked this, I didn't really understand the true "treehouse" quality to this place. The lodging is built out of real logs. You are a story up, overlooking the beach. Below you, is your private space with a table, patio, grill, and plastic chairs. You really have your own hideaway type space with a real treehouse (yet very sound)...

This property is ideally situated right on the beach with stunning views of the ocean right from your bungalow. I don't think I have ever been more relaxed as when lying in the hammock underneath watching the sunset and listening to the waves! The people of Treehouse Inn are what make it exceptional - Oscar, Laura, Gabriel, all the staff...

The Tree House is a rustic and beautiful place to stay. It's right on the beach, with big windows, which we left open all night, (note to self, next time bring mosquito netting.) Listening to the waves, waking up to the sun bouncing on the water was a uniquely relaxing experience. The people who work there, Laura and her staff,...
