    Staying in a Sphere

    Once one breaks contact with the ground, energy shifts. The magical environment of the forest canopy conjures up thoughts of elves and fairies. One can feel the presence of the forest. That presence seems to dwell in the canopy where it can watch the meanderings below.

    The motion in a sphere is a slow gentle rocking when the wind blows. The rope tethers are almost vertical which lets the treetops move considerably while hardly moving the sphere at all. The sphere movement is a muted average of the movement of the 3 treetops. When another body inside the sphere shifts his/her weight the motion is more abrupt. It's a little like being on a waterbed with somebody else.

    The "Spherical Tree House" concept borrows heavily from sailboat construction a...

    Additional Location Information
    Welcome to the world of Free Spirit Spheres, set among the tall trees of the west coast rainforest of Vancouver Island, Canada. We invite you to experience a tree house for adults... 16 years and over. (liability considerations)

    Built on Imagineering these handcrafted spheres are suspended like pendants from a web of rope. They occupy a truly unique place in the world while providing a habitat for the un-tamed spirit that exists in us all.

    Spheres, Eve, Eryn and Melody, are available for overnight rental. We 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. Come experience an enchanted coastal rain forest.... your comfortable, gently swaying, restful sphere awaits.

My wife and I stayed in a tree house for new years eve. It was a unique and awesome experience. The spheres are hung in the trees with ropes and offer a great vantage point to view wildlife and just hang out. The owners provided us with a gift basket with enough snacks to hold us over for our two day stay.. Each unit has a eco friendly composting toilet in a out house near the base of our unit. For those less adventurous there is a full service washroom with showers and a sauna. We really can not say enough good stuff about this adventure to do it justice. We enjoyed our stay immensely and can not wait to go back.

My wife and I were skipping around British Columbia for a couple of weeks; one night we realized we were not going to make our destination by nightfall and we didn't want to miss anything in the dark. So, we needed a place near Qualium. Well we could not have had a more serendipitous diversion. This place may not show up on the big See Canada tourist brochures -but we could not have been more entertained, educated, enlightened or grasiously recieved then we were. The host have carved out a new world in the treetops -the only reason to go to ground is to experience the number one out house in the world.
Not for everyone -perfect for my wife and I.
