My daughter found these spheres in a book, when wandering around a book shop in Dubai. We had planned a months holiday in Canada this Summer and wanted some new experiences. I did a lot of research on the area and the spheres and decided to book two for one night as I didn't want to take the risk of...

I would recommend this stay to everyone. This was the most fun stay on our trip to Vancouver Island. Not only the uniqueness of the sphere in the tree tops, but realizing the high quality of the workmanship construction. Since there is not a WC in the sphere, we brought a bucket for night emergencies. But the nearby outhouse was...

had a wonderful evening in our tree house. all the comfort of home (or at least a well equipped mobile home), with old growth forest views out both portholes. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, and amenities a pleasant surprise (a bite of tasty European breakfast without leaving our floating sphere), and the host (and engineer) friendly and knowledgable. A great...

Always want to stay in unique and different types of places. Found this sphere and based our trip around it. It was totally worth it. We stayed in the original and smallest sphere which was perfect for myself and my boyfriend. We were able to I know up some wine and cheese, play scrabble, and listen to music in the...

This was such a fun thing to do. It is a really cool feeling to be in these spheres - especially if you don't mind the sphere swaying in the wind or with movement. These spheres are beautifully made, and more comfortable than you'd think. We had a warm greeting upon arrival, and a lovely basket full of goodies for...

A great way to pass the night. The spheres seem to come from another world, right out of a childhood story. Eve was super comfy and I greatly enjoyed the peace and quiet there. I was also very impressed to have a private bathroom only a few steps away. Further the hosts provided a great "little" snack with drinks, cookies,...

My wife and I stayed here in July and had an incredible time. There's nothing in the world like this place. If you're at all curious about trying something off the beaten path and different you must stay here. Sleeping suspended in the air in the middle of these giant trees is an unforgettable experience.

My Husband and I spend our 20th anniversary in Melody. The sphere is beautifully built and the attention to details speaks to Toms artistry & skill. We had the pleasure of meeting Rosie & getting the tour from Jamie and found everyone at Fss to be genuine and kind. Their concern for their guests is evident from your arrival to...

My friend and I stayed there in December 2014. We rented the larger sphere for the one night. She had the bottom larger bed and I had the loft bed - well it was impossible to be able to get up to it - there was no ladder or anything to help you pull yourself up. In the end I...

WOW! I'm not sure that words alone can capture the experience of staying at the Free Spirit Spheres, but I will try. The novelty of staying in a sphere, perched high up, amongst lush green trees is reason enough to visit the Free Spirit Spheres. Layer upon that the display of fine craftsmanship, brilliant engineering and Tom & Rosey's attention...
