But even in a tree house community in the jungles of Costa Rica, the real estate doesn't come cheap -- especially when you find a decked-out tree house that's 90 feet up in the air!

Though the first spot (El Castillo Mastate) was beautiful, it was a little out of their price range. At $1,500 a month, Matt and Kelly had to give up and move on.

The couple, originally from England, was looking for a place where they could grow their own food and live a more sustainable lifestyle. Matt also needed solar power to run his online business, but their finances were limited and in the end, the couple went with a tree house that suited their budget of $900 a month.
