"You've probably never seen such a house as this... The world is full of nice, ordinary little people, who live in nice, ordinary little houses, on the ground. But didn't you ever dream of living in a house in the treetops?"

-father Robinson, in Disneys' version of "Swiss Family Robinson"

As seen on the Travel Channel's "Amazing Vacation Homes".

This is the internet home of the tropical treehouse in the lush hills of Rincon, Puerto Rico. The summer season is upon us. The cooling, afternoon showers brings new growth, and the lush foliage, flowers, and fruit just add to the total hooch experience. Sam is running the show this summer, and he is totally knowledgeable about the surf scene. If that is on your agenda, he's the guy.

Stay here, and never want to leave. Or, stay here, and venture out. The treehouse and Puerto Rico offer a wealth of island ambiance and tropical activities, whatever vacation movie you want to make.

Sunsets dominate the experience here, green flashes are a phenomena best seen from a hooch. Come stay in our treehouses, watch the sunset, listen to the coqui frog, and our local Puerto Rican owl.

The Luna hooch ($110/ night)& the Sunset hooch ($135/ night) are totally self-sufficient treehouses- solar hot water, shower, kitchenette, flush toilet, and a queen size bed in the penthouse suite- with a killer view. Sweet!

And now, we would like to introduce the new Buddha hooch ($160/night). A deluxe, hexagonal, spacious hooch with its own private entrance.

Getting here - We have an excellent airport here on the West coast of Puerto Rico- Aguadilla International (BQN). Three major airlines arrive daily - JetBlue , Continental , and Spirit . Departure stateside airports include JFK, Newark, Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale. The drive to the treehouse is about 45 minutes. Another alternative is to fly into SanJuan, which is also served by American Airlines. The drive across the island takes about 2 1/2 hours. I would suggest a stay in Old San Juan for the total package of history, art galleries, and finally your treehouse getaway.
