Your hotel
You are staying in Costa Rica Tree House Lodge, a unique destination near the beach where you’ll find six hand-built, sustainable houses that sparkle with creativity. Owner Edsart has a sharp eye for attractive color combinations and is a master in architectural design and repurposing. Don’t be surprised to find an old American school bus in the jungle, now a comfortable family suite.


The open and spacious Beach Suite will be your home and is built with fallen trees from the rainforest and other recycled materials. The garden borders the beach. You can enjoy a great ocean view from the 1st-floor bedroom and the roof terrace, plus there’s a bathroom you’ve never seen before. In addition, you have a fully equipped kitchen, barbecue, and a wood-fired hot tub!
