Holiday Rental House
The Floating House is a unique architectural design by Benjamin Garcia Saxe with interiors by Dante Medri. Floating above the canopy of the trees on 1.5 acres of hillside jungle, the house sits on the top of the trees with breathtaking ocean and jungle valley views. The concept of the house was to disturb as little of the ground as possible allowing the slope, the vegetation and the wildlife to flow beneath the elevated units. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a kitchen living pod and two seperate bedroom pods with flying walkways between them. The house is accented with a 24 meter long corridor of bamboo which acts as the 'gills' of the house, so airflow is constant.

The house is available as a private rental and comes with house keeping, security , private parking and exclusive use of the pool. There is A/C in the bedrooms should you need it but otherwise we have harnessed mother nature to create a very natural , cool, modern tropical house tree house. The house floats above the canopy of the jungle which offers up a truly unique experience in this area. Being this close to Mother Nature and her sounds is absolutely breathtaking. More

Hands down 1 of the most magical properties we’ve stayed in anywhere in the world. The monkeys were so close and chatty...super cool to have them wake us up in the mornings. Having the pool was a huge bonus as well. Overall, A++!
