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... More

Free Spirit Sphere's is such a unique, amazing little place to stay. It's fun to be able to say "I did that, I stayed there". The sphere's feel like you are in a boat, gently swaying in the trees. We were looking to get off the grid for a couple days and get away, and this was absolutely perfect. The... More

All I can say is wow! The craftsmanship put into these spheres is absolutely incredible! They bring pampering to a whole new level. Never have I been treated to nice while staying at an accommodation!

During my travels, I didn't have an international drivers license, which could've made getting to Free Spirit a little tricky, however from the very first correspondence Rosey and Tom were extremely helpful, so informative and really helped me out in making my way there, even accommodating for the bus arrival time. Both Rosey and Tom couldn't have been more lovely... More

My husband planned a romantic valentine weekend trip for us. Stayed in the small sphere -- it was very cozy but we fit just fine. If you want to do something completely different I would stay here. Greeting by outstanding friendly owners. Stay included a welcome basket with fruit, yogurt, and rolls. There is nothing quite like the gentle sway... More

Set on a beautiful property the spheres were really unique and fun. Quaint and cosy they were very warm and comfy and the sauna was a bonus. Thank you Tom and Rosey, such gracious hosts we had a fantastic time. And thank you for the recommendations for restaurants and hiking trails.

We saw this property on an episode on Discovery and just had to check it out. So happy that we did! We were looking to getaway from it all and recharge. This place is magical and we would love to go stay there again. The owners were amazing and we sat and chatted with them for quite a bit. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the Melody sphere; it was a unique experience to sleep in the forest and hear the birds and deers around us. Tom and Rosey are very friendly and take care you feel comfortable and happy without being too visible. Every sphere has their own washroom, it was a big plus for us. If you... More

Its fabulous place to stay. I come over here for business trip. The sphere is accessed by climbing a small spiral staircase, with washroom facilities contained in a "mushroom" near the bottom of the staircase. There is a separate washroom block a short walk away which has showers and a sauna. I recommend everybody for this place.

I booked 1 night in Melody and it was fabulous. First, it's not far at all from Qualicum Beach which is a very nice spot to have dinner. Second, the spheres are just amazing. The craftsmanship, the ambiance…. it's just an unbelievable experience and one I would highly recommend. Each sphere has its own toilets and shower area. We had... More
