The space

A unique and vibrant treehouse in the heart of the Enchanted Forest property. You can often spot Iguanas and Monkeys from your room and there's plenty more wildlife to encounter in our special corner of the jungle.

This is a PRIME beach location with only a 2 min walk to the famous and stunning Guiones Beach. No need for a car as everything is walking distance. There are also bikes for guests use. There is a communal kitchen and bathroom facilities—a true Costa Rican experience!

For those looking for a rustic, jungle getaway, this is the perfect place. The Enchanted Forest is ideal for travelers wanting a quieter, rejuvenating, eco experience. We are visitors in the jungle—for wildlife this is their home—so no late night parties are permitted.

Your host with the most is an former pro boxer offering daily classes—discounted for guests—as well as specialized training. Stay in shape or get back into your fitness regime all while enjoying the restorative and energizing jungle vibe.

The Enchanted Forest is a great place. Understand what you're choosing here - it's a rustic little jungle hideaway. You're not getting air conditioned rooms with room service. Brenda is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable host. It's very close to the beach, and there's plenty of yoga and eating places within walking distance. Pack a pair of flip flops, a flashlight and mosquito net and you're all set!

Brenda's Enchanted Forest is a gem, as is Brenda herself. We are so grateful to have found her listing, and we cannot wait to return! Everything about our visit was friendly, beautiful, relaxing, energizing, and perfect. 10 stars out of 5! :-)

"Enchanted Forest" is amazing. It's very close to the beach...maybe like 200 meters or less (no properties are really any closer because they're not allowed to be). Brenda is an amazing person and super welcoming. She teaches excellent fitness classes every morning at her outdoor gym which is all made of wood (teak) and has every single exercise gadget you can think of. There is even a boxing ring on the property! She lives on the property and takes care of everything so think of this more like a really unique bed+breakfast not as a hotel with reception and room service and all that stuff. She is an expert fitness trainer/boxer and caters to everyone's needs so I highly recommend her classes every morning. She has medical training also and can help with any injuries you might have etc. I also recommend asking her about her life and career as a boxer ;) she's got some incredible stories! The houses/rooms are all different from one another and they are cute and very simple...comfortable bed, nice sheets, lamp, ceiling fan (or regular fan), and netting as windows. They are raised up as you can see in the photos - and that adds to just feeling like you are submerged in nature. That is the idea she was going for and the idea has succeeded in creating: a very gorgeous property with a great vibe...completely set in nature/jungle. There are all these beautiful pathways leading to the main dining area and to the bathrooms/showers. Brenda has slowly been building this place for a long time and it certainly feels that way - lots of care and special little details. Manage your expectations - there are bugs and animals around. So when go to bed at night, you'll hear things rustling around outside - nothing to be afraid of though as that's how things are in Costa Rica and in the jungle :) They're always around.. But if you shut the door to your room and watch where you step (bring flashlights!), you very quickly get used to it all - and sleep like a baby. Use a shared taxi to get from Liberia airport to Nosara (playa Guiones) and tell the driver you are staying at "Enchanted Forest"- reserve it (EMAIL HIDDEN)

Interaction with guests

Host is always on the property. It is a very safe spot for single travelers and mellow couples. Meet other friendly guests who are also here to surf, sweat, hang out in hammocks and otherwise enjoy the pura vida life!
