  • HIGH LIFE: The bedroom in Punta Jaguar.

Via Facebook, I see that the website for "The Today Show" recently featured a three-story treehouse in Costa Rica that Little Rock native Eva Fleischauer Lovely owns with her husband, Bryan. It's in Cabo Matapalo, a remote jungle village on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. They call the house Punta Jaguar.

The couple camped on the property for two-and-a-half years with no electricity while they built the house.  

"We had our hands on every single aspect of this house," Eva Lovely told Today. "We employed locals to work with us, as it's no easy feat to lift and build at these great heights. Due to our remote location, the people working with us lived on the property with us. We were one big family."

And now it can be yours! At least for the week. They rent it here.
