Our stay at the TreeTop House was magical. For us, it was the perfect marriage of adventure, comfort, convenience, charm and isolation. We wanted a tree house type experience, but still wanted clean comfy beds, indoor plumbing and the ability to provide our own meals. We were two families of 4 traveling together with kids ranging from age 7-12. The Treetop house exceeded our expectations. It is a truly unique place unlike any other.
We rented all levels of the house and would highly recommend doing this if possible. It allowed us to spread out and have all the privacy we wanted and needed. We used the top level as a gathering space for meals (as it has the best equipped kitchen of all the rooms) and the two levels below were used as sleeping quarters where the kids could play around during the day and we could sleep comfortably at night. If you are looking to rent the TreeTop house by individual level or room, take into consideration that every level is connected and privacy & noise could be an issue as some of the units share bathrooms and common areas. All the units are clean comfortable and nicely decorated, but vary in the amenities they have. Two of the bedrooms have a shared bathroom outside, while the top and bottom floors have their own bathroom & shower. If you are traveling with children, I recommend renting the entire house. It is very reasonably priced and the peace of mind that you’re the only people on the property is worth it. Otherwise, think of it as a pension where each room is rented separately, common areas are shared and plan on coming in close contact with other the other guests.
What makes the TreeTophouse such an amazing experience is its location and its owner, Sabine. The house is situated in the canopy of the Monteverde Cloudforest and has expansive views from the back. It is walking distance to the local bakery, restaurants and all the Biological wonders Monteverde has to offer. It is close to the downtown area where there is a Super Compro and plenty of restaurants and night life.
Sabine was a delight to work with and from the first day I inquired about the TreeTop house, she was cheery, helpful and responsive. The night we arrived, we were hours later than expected and Sabine was patient and took every measure to ensure we were comfortable and had what we needed. She also checked in with us each day and even brought coffee for our first morning from her coffee plantation.
Our experience wouldn’t have been what it was, without the amazing tours Sabine set up on our behalf. She has wonderful local connections and was able to set up tours with the best guides and made reservations for the best tours. We truly woke up each morning and Sabine had everything arranged for an amazing day of adventure. I spent weeks before our trip researching what tours to do and what places to see. Sabine never steered us wrong and was able to create an experience that wouldn’t have been possible without her local connections and expertise. When traveling in a foreign country, having a local who can give you advice and help steer you in the right direction is invaluable and is often overlooked when planning a vacation. The TreeTop House itself was memorable and unique, but combined with Sabine’s hospitality, it made for a trip we’ll never forget.
