The space

Casa Arbol is a 2-story treehouse (yes!) that overlooks the Pacific Ocean in one of Central America's largest private wildlife corridors, making for incredible wildlife sightings an almost daily occurrence. A five-minute drive down our private road will take you to three of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Playa Maderas, Playa Playones and Playa Majagual.

This house is proud to be part of a community spearheading eco-friendly vacations without sacrificing luxury- Balcones de Majagual

Casa Arbol was built to be the perfect balance of tropical open-air living and modern comfort. High ceilings provide extraordinary views through our state-of-the-art screen system. This unique amenity brings you the fresh air, the crashing of waves, and the calls of exotic birds -- all while making sure nothing but the fresh air actually comes inside. The home overlooks a low valley and its position is perfect for some extraordinary bird and monkey watching from inside the house or on our two decks.

The house is supported by massive eucalyptus trunks and curved wood ceilings built from sustainable timber. Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and grounds. The living room features a new large flat screen TV, a Sony audio system, DVD library, art collection, and leather and wood furniture and furnishings by the architect who designed the home.

The master and guest bedrooms both have forest and ocean views, custom lighting, and their own bathrooms with beautiful stonework throughout. In keeping with the eco-conscious nature of the house, piping hot water is provided by our solar hot water heater.

Our recently upgraded battery-backup system provides silent power for the house even during Nicaragua's brief power outages, so you will not hear noisy generators running and your trip will not be interrupted.

We have a fully equipped kitchen, a new refrigerator, a microwave, gas oven/stove, and purified water available for your convenience. Travel to nearby San Juan del Sur for local fruits and vegetables, some of the freshest fish you’ll ever eat, and meat and poultry that are the very definition of free-range.

A 15-minute walk or a 4-minute drive takes you through forest canopies right to Playa Majagual and private, secluded luxury. From the beach, walk north to explore the tide-pools or south to one of the world’s best surf-breaks. But you may decide to just stay put and sunbathe, have a picnic in the private palapa, body surf in the perfect waves, stare in wonder at the sunset, or all of the above.

Bird and wildlife watching from the house or on the many hiking and nature trails, is incomparable. Howler monkeys live in the trees around the house in large numbers – and you will hear them each day around sundown as they prepare for the night. November thru April is Ocelot and Margay cat season – and we have seen them on many occasions. Kinkajou will likely visit at night next to the porch in the canopy, where the fruits they loves grow and ripen in the green months, May through November. Sloth, Coatimudi and a multitude of other animals will all visit at various times.

Enjoy the custom stonework, stone showers and countertops, outdoor shower and the hammock on the pool deck An additional sunset deck in the very tops of the trees above the house provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set in the evenings over the Pacific below. The Master bedroom is an incredible space, all stone, wood, custom lighting and furniture. The vista of the ocean below or the night sky surrounding you -- after lights out it is difficult to tell whether you are indoors or outdoors. Magical.

A gorgeous shared plunge pool set on the edge of the hill allows for incredible view of the Pacific- particularly at sunset!

Concierge services are included in the cost and they can arrange for zip-lines and canopy tours, surfing lessons, fishing expeditions, Spanish lessons, and professional massages on site. Parking, cleaning services, gardening and pool service, and around-the-clock security are also included.

Unlike many other rental house, the owners spend several months of the year at Casa Arbol, which means that this home is always well stocked, perfectly maintained, and doesn't have that 'rental house' feeling. All services provided according to your preference, your privacy will be respected here. If you don't wish to have your privacy interrupted, it won't be.

If you are looking for a night on the town, San Juan del Sur, and its fantastic line of beachfront restaurants and bars, is just 8 kilometers away. There is even a small casino if you want to play cards or slots. And if you want to know our favorite places to eat and drink, just ask. We can also give hints about discounts in the area.

Whether watching a Kinkajou eat from the trees in front of you while relaxing in the pool, learning to howl like a Howler monkey out on the observation deck, or eating your first homemade bowl of gallo pinto, Casa Arbol is guaranteed to give you a vacation you will never forget.

Casa Arbol was great! Definitely a relaxing stay, and it was nice to be able to fall asleep to the sound of nature. The view was amazing as well. It's a beautiful home! You do need the 4WD, so definitely make the reservation. We booked with Dollar which was recommended to us. Elsi was also great and took us to the market to buy fruit and a couple of other stores to buy things for the beach. We ended up going to Pali on our way to Casa Arbol to buy the rest of our groceries so maybe the first trip to buy fruit wasn't necessary. I loved the secluded feel of the home and the drive as well. Also, I personally do not mind bugs, but my mom was not a big fan of them. You'll see spiders, roaches, and scorpions. Nothing too crazy (again you're in a well equipped treehouse in a jungle), but it is good to be a little cautious when putting on shoes or something. My son was fine with seeing bugs as well. I also loved that it was a short drive to the beach. We didn't use the pool, so not much to say about it. There was only one downside to our stay there. We didn't have hot water. I contacted Laura to see if it could be handled and she said the staff would take a look at it. I'm not sure if they did, but we didn't have hot water for our entire stay. Overall, I liked it.

Response from Angelique & Giuseppe:
Thank you for the review Adriana. In regards to the hot water it is solar heated and unfortunately (and unusually) we had overcast skies for a few days coinciding with your arrival meaning the water didn't get to come up to it's usually hot temperature. Our apologies for that.

What a wonderful trip! The home was amazing, the Remax hosts were delightful and so very attentive. They helped to arrange catamaran sails, surf lessons and massages on the porch of the beautiful house. The pictures do not do it justice. It was just amazing all around. I traveled with a friend and my recently graduated college daughter and her friend. Couldn't have asked for a better celebration vacation!!

The place was really nice, loved hanging out by the pool and listening to the monkeys...we didn't get to see them though :( We were told to watch out for scorpions which was a bit scary, thankfully we didn't see any! We would definitely stay there again. It's the perfect get away in the jungle away from town (approx. 30 mins drive from San Juan). Thanks so much for having us!!

Loved my stay here, 3 nights just wasn't enough! Breath taking views and it felt so at home with nature. Waking up in the morning had never been so good in fact the views were that great you didn't want to waste time with your eyes shut. It was also very clean and comfortable I'd recommend this to anyone. Great experience
