When we booked this, I didn't really understand the true "treehouse" quality to this place. The lodging is built out of real logs. You are a story up, overlooking the beach. Below you, is your private space with a table, patio, grill, and plastic chairs. You really have your own hideaway type space with a real treehouse (yet very sound)...

This property is ideally situated right on the beach with stunning views of the ocean right from your bungalow. I don't think I have ever been more relaxed as when lying in the hammock underneath watching the sunset and listening to the waves! The people of Treehouse Inn are what make it exceptional - Oscar, Laura, Gabriel, all the staff...

The Tree House is a rustic and beautiful place to stay. It's right on the beach, with big windows, which we left open all night, (note to self, next time bring mosquito netting.) Listening to the waves, waking up to the sun bouncing on the water was a uniquely relaxing experience. The people who work there, Laura and her staff,...

What a magical place! From the moment we arrived at the Tree House we felt like we were home. The entire staff were so wonderful and Laura and Oscar are amazing hosts. Oscar took us on an incredible river trip, went to a master potter and is always a wealth of information. Their love of country is so contagious it...

The highlight of this property is not it's amazing location on a stunning beach....it's the staff that makes it inviting and safe. I don't remember all their names but oscar the bartender at the hotel is one of the friendliest and one of the most genuine people I have ever met. He went above and beyond what anyone could ask...

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of staying at the Samara Tree House Inn. You must experience this! The staff are wonderful, friendly and accomodating.

We had such a great time at this laid back treehouse right on the beach. The views were amazing and the breakfast each morning was delish! Oscar was super helpful pointing us in the right direction and made us feel at home. Great experience!

Returned for the second time and LOVE this place. I mean you are right on a gorgeous beach, units are lovely and spacious, and the staff is wonderful. Kudos to Isla Mar, you rock! They serve a great breakfast. If you want a huge all-inclusive impersonal experience, this place is not for you. But if you want something small, friendly...

My boyfriend and I were blown away by how friendly the staff was here, and how special of a place this was! The beachfront tree houses are spectacular! We were unable to stay in them because they were full, but we stayed in the poolside bungalow and still had a great time. The place is spotless, in a perfect location,...
