Built on tall stilts, this back-to-your-childhood house is submerged by the forest, with a sloped wooden suspension bridge leading steeply to its front door. Inside it’s split level: upstairs, a double king size bed and a small ensuite toilet; downstairs, a second double bed, a single bed and a kitchen. There’s enough room for a family, however also very romantic and very suited to a couple.
All of the furniture is hand carved sustainable wood, windows are open but screened against bugs, while scarlet Birds of Paradise flowers provide splashes of colour.
The shared bathroom is back on ground level and this is fabulous: a 100-year-old Sangrillo tree shelters a toilet in one trunk fold, an outdoor shower in another. A mirror is framed with seashells, towels are folded into different shapes each day.
