This was a truly magical experience that exceeded our already high expectations! We loved the feeling of coming home to such comfort in the jungle. Total bliss. So many great details- games, lists of things to do, help with the phones, guidebooks, food growing everywhere with freedom-to-pick :), …(their) knowledge of the area, and education-minded approach with my kids was invaluable. Thanks!!!!

This is a MUST stay for anyone travelling to Ometepe. Unbelievable natural experience and the volcano views are stunning. Megan was a wonderful host and so helpful throughout the entire process!! She definitely went above and beyond for us, and for every other guest at the property. I wish we could have stayed a few extra nights. Know that there will be spiders and other crawling things, it is a treehouse after all. The property is secluded but also a quick scooter ride into town for restaurants.

This house on (their) farm is truly spectacular. The space is beautifully constructed and was immaculately clean. It really hit a perfect balance between staying natural and open to the elements, while still having all the amenities you could need, including a hot shower, electrical outlets, fans, etc.
Coupled with it's remote location and beautiful view of the volcano and sunset, it really was a perfect retreat for us. We really enjoyed that side of the island, near the small town of Balgue which has some nice restaurants, and is pretty close to the Ojo de Agua, another highlight for us.
It's pretty easy to walk into the small town, but we had rented some mopeds, which helped a lot in getting around to more of the island. Was also nice to be on a working farm, and the freshly prepared breakfasts were a highlight.
Our host… was very helpful with local food and activity recommendations and in arranging a guide for our hike up the Maderas volcano, who was fantastic. The volcano can be walked to directly from the farm. Overall, couldn't have been happier with our stay here. Would highly recommend.

Jackfruit Treehouse at Selvista was everything we were expecting to experience and so much more! The location is beautiful and secluded - the volcano view alone is outstanding. Accommodations have been designed with much affection and with care for the environment... The “small things” are considered. Great bottle of wine in the room, lovely body wash, flashlight to get up the ladder to the best hammocks in town. The vibe is a balance of community living (enjoyed company at breakfast) and privacy…
(The host) was resourceful and kind and had reliable contacts in town. We highly recommend the ATV rental outfit that (they) suggested. They even directed us to great places to drive that was out of the tourist trap. This was our “splurge” on the trip - if you can even call it that considering the value. We would go back in a heartbeat!

WE have great reviews ON TRIPADVISOR
We stayed at the jungle house and it was unbelievable. The location and views are better than expected. They were able to give us great tips and the breakfast the next morning was one of our favorites meals on Ometepe.
It was so beautiful that we didn’t end up leaving the property for the 24 hours that we were there. We decided to rent an ATV to get around Ometepe which I would highly recommend. It is helpful to have one because you are able to drive through the rocky path right to location. Overall, a fantastic stay and I cannot say enough great things about it.
