Enjoy the shared pool, modern amenities, wildlife, wifi- everything is here to make this the vacation of your dreams- we can't wait to host you!

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 for stays longer than 5 days, gardening and pool service, and around-the-clock security are also included.


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 12 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.

San Juan del Sur, Rivas, Nicaragua

One of the best parts of staying at Casa Arbol is the quiet that allows you to enjoy the sounds of the jungle. On days when the breezes are gentle you can hear the ocean crashing. Every day you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee with the parakeets singing and the Mono Congo monkey's hanging in the trees around the house. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets singing outside the house. Unlike many of the homes in and around San Juan Del Sur, Casa Arbol is unique in its setting. Perched on a ridge, the home is located in a private boutique community, containing 12 homes on roughly 100 acres stretching from the jungle to the ocean. There is enough space between homes to enjoy complete privacy without feeling alone or isolated. The lack of light pollution allows you to swim in the pool on clear nights by moonlight, something not to be missed. We provide 24 hour on site security, cleaning service and management without being intrusive. We are also an ecologic conscious community. What does this mean? We do not believe in spraying heavy pesticides like local hotels do to control bugs, what this does mean is you may encounter a few critters in and around the house, but we are not poisoning the food chain from the bottom up. All of our actions have far reaching consequences, and we want monkeys and parrots to visit the home. We heat our water with solar heat (and there is no lack of that!) and all our furniture and wood in the home is reclaimed fallen hardwoods, ethically sourced in north east Nicaragua. Besides the obvious benefit of living in a tree house, you are right at the beaches, right near the surf, and not in town so the only noise you hear is that of the jungle!
