Free Spirit Tree Spheres

Suspended amongst the west coast rain forest of Vancouver Island, Canada are a collection of unusual accommodations designed to bring out the inner flower child in us all.

Welcome to the world of eco-friendly Free Spirit Spheres, a place where you can relax, meditate, and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of forest life.

Come and enjoy the beauty that Mother Nature has to offer from the comfort of your very own gently swaying tree house. The mysteries of a coastal rain forest wait right outside your front door.

Two of these spheres, Eve and Eryn, can be rented overnight. Components to build your very own sphere can also be purchased.

The five acres of land where the spheres can be found are approximately 30km north of Parksville on Vancouver Island along the Inland Island Hwy (#19), near Qualicum Bay. The acreage is on private property close to Horne Lake Caves, Georgia Strait,and Mount Washington.

Visitors here can enjoy the peace and quiet of a coastal rain forest. A large pond in the center of the acreage attracts all sorts of wildlife. These unusual accommodations are a great retreat from the hustle-bustle of the modern world.

Rates for Eve
Eve rents at $125.00/night or $199.00/2 nights.

Rates for Eryn
Eryn rents @ $175.00/night or $299.00/2 nights. Eryn’s rate is based on 2 people.
There is a $35.00/night additional charge for a 3 person.

      Heya Marcus,
      I agree. It is expensive, but the experience would make up for it.

    These are super cool!
    The rain forest on the coast is very special, if you haven't been you should go.

      Hi Mel,
      I haven\\'t had much opportunity to travel through Canada. John and I are saving it for later. Where are you heading to in BC?

    How utterly bizarre. Where do you find all of these wacky hotels?


      (May 18, 2009 - 5:12 am)

      Hi Graham,

      It\\'s just curiosity more than anything. I come across them on my own, or friends send them to me.

    Ack, my fear of heights would leave me petrified all night – I'd keep envisioning those cables to snap :s

    Btw, I have troubles visiting your site, my browser keeps crashing (javascript related?). I'm forced to use the standard company one at work (IE6, SP2). When I visit with Firefox I have no problem though.

      Hi Kim,
      From what I understand, the spheres are supported by several cables forming a web. If a tree goes down or a cable snaps, the sphere will remain where it is.
      I’m not sure why you’re having troubles visiting MSW. The site definitely is made to run on Mozilla Firefox, but I haven’t had any problems looking at it from IE7 at work. I’ll check into it for you. 🙁

    I spent 3 years living in BC in the Slocan Valley. (the dali lama named it one of the most sacred place`s on earth!). Thats the “southern interior“ of BC.
    During that time I travelled all over the province with the exception of northern BC.
    What interested me most in the province was the difference in climate from one side to the other, did you know that there is a desert in bc? I had no idea untill I drove from kamloops to the Okanagan. BTW I have to say that the most interesting drive was from Vancouver to Kamloops, the views were breathtaking. I was amazed that all the rivers and lakes were beautiful blues and green. It truly is god`s country.
    When I go back this July I will be staying in Vancouver, but I hope to make it to the island to visit Tofino and I would also love to make it back to Nelson, home of the natural hotsprings with heaps of natural lithuim inside to soothe my soul;)

      Hi Mel,
      Thanks for coming back! Sadly, I’ve only ever passed through BC on route. I’m looking forward to a trip there some day. If you ever write about your experiences, please let me know. I’d love to feature it as a guest article here on MSW.


    (May 23, 2009 - 8:08 pm)

    Woah! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I love finding random oddities like this. Definitely going to look into renting this next time I’m out in BC, which may be as early as this summer! I’ll be sure to write a post about the experience when I get a chance, and link back to you once it’s finished! Thanks again.

      Hi Corbin,
      I’m glad to be of service. I’d love to hear someone’s first-hand account of Free Spirit Spheres.
