Hidden Canopy Treehouses

300 m east of crossroad to Los Nubes, before Sky Adventures Park, Santa Elena, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Nestled among 13½ acres of rolling hills nearly 3 km (2 miles) from town, five luxury tree houses have wraparound decks, driftwood headboards, tree-stump nightstands, waterfall showers, and skylight ceilings, ultimately fading the line between nature and decor. Each unit is unique in design, but all are built of wood, stone, and glass and have minibars, lounge areas, and private entrances. The spacious two-bedroom “Rivendell” tree house looks more like a two-story chalet cupped in the branches. "Eden" has an indoor Jacuzzi, and "Neverland"—built over a koi pond—has floor-to-ceiling windows with views spanning over the hills to the Gulf of Nicoya. Breakfast and tea are served in a lovely solarium in the main house, which also has two standard guest rooms. The rules here are simple—no shoes in the house, no working during your stay, and dessert is served before dinner promptly at 5 (the coconut flan is to die for). The property's views are among Monteverde’s best, and there are plenty of quiet spots for reflection and a network of hiking trails.
