There is no office on the property or onsite staff. The community is made up of private home owners, residents, work exchange applicants and guests.

There is also no phone signal coming up the road to Finca Bellavista or at the car park so a time to meet with a member of the community needs to be prearranged. Once a booking is confirmed, you will be able to share your arrival day through the Fusion Forum where a member of the community will make themselves available to meet you.

Once you have been introduced to an available community member, you will be able to update them directly should your travel day or arrival time change. Once onsite, they will escort you to my home and ensure everything is operational and comfortable before leaving you to enjoy Mariposa. 


You are welcome to sign up to the Fusion Forum before making a booking, it's free to do so and you can ask questions directly to the community


Additionally, you can find information on living off-grid, property for sale and general information about the Finca Bellavista community and surrounding area.

Graham and Corinne have been long time residents of the Finca Bellavista community. Annual trips to the treehome with friends and family have dubbed them the nickname 'The Treehouse Family'. Built in 2009, Casa Mariposa was the 4th treehome constructed at Finca Bellavista. It has long time been considered a family favorite by guests given it's generous space and large kitchen.

Graham grew up in 8 cities across Canada and United States so he has spent more time in Casa Mariposa than any place he lived in as a child.  He bikes 34 km (22 miles) to/from work every day, even in the Canadian winters.  When he is not in his treehouse, Graham spends almost all of his free time hiking in the Rocky Mountains with their daughters or camping and kayaking with Corinne.
Corinne grew up with a treehouse on their family property.  She named this grown-up version “Casa Mariposa” because of the spectacular blue morpho butterflies that frequent the open area around the large deck. She could recognize no tropical birds when they built the treehouse but is delighted to be learning to identify parrots, hummingbirds, toucans and other wildlife that visit daily.
