The rooms are clean beyond compare!. You can not find a better location if you are looking for beach front, just a gate between you and the beach & surf. I... More

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... More

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,... More

The Tree House Inn is WONDERFUL!!! My husband and I stayed there the last 2 weeks in September and we would definitely return. Unlike many places, it is clear this Inn is very well cared for and that the staff are helpful, kind, and convey a nice feeling of "pride of place." There is a staff present 24/7. Our apt... More
