I have been dreaming for years of staying in these tree top spheres but never thought I would have the opportunity, but I was wrong! My wife and I choose this place for our anniversary trip and Thom and Rosey didn't disappoint. A banner of "Happy anniversary" on the outside welcoming us, champagne and a friendly greeting awaited us. Of...

It almost feels like you are part of the forest while playing inside one of these baubles in the branches. My wife and I booked Eve, the smallest of the beautifully constructed spheres. Staff/owners were sincerely happy to see us and we were provided with the best welcome basket of tasty treats I've ever received. The perspective from inside the...

Such a special experience to stay in one of these spheres. The attention to detail in the fitting of the spheres and looking after guests is second to none. Friendly hosts, comfortable bed, amazing and magical experience sleeping amongst the trees. Each sphere is very private and not overlooked. The 'snack' basket was huge and very tasty. Each sphere has...

Spheres very well equipped and beautifully designed and finished. Magical experience sleeping in suspended sphere in trees. Peacefulness in woods was amazing with bats skimming across the lake. Private toilet and shower a short walk away along with kitchen and bbq. Welcome snacks were very generous and all very homely. Hospitality very good throughout the stay, team very friendly. Fascinating...

After a five day kayak trip off of Ucluelet we were looking forward to a real bed and a hot shower. When I booked the Free Spirit Spheres, I hoped they would be as comfortable as they were beautiful. The Spheres did not disappoint. And although the bed was comfortable and the shower was indeed hot, these are not the...

Thank you for such a detailed review of your 'expherience', and for your kind words and compliments! I can only hope that the spheres inspire you to act upon your own worthy dreams. Can you imagine a world where more peoples' life force energy is devoted to the uplifting of all life through various expressions of creativity and innovation?

My partner and I planned my 31st birthday around Free Spirit Spheres. We had been recommended the accommodations many many moons ago, and finally made it our excuse to flee the city (Vancouver, BC) and explore the Island. We spent our Saturday hiking around Cameron Lake, before travelling passed Qualicum Beach to our nest for the night. It was the...

Truly a unique experience, and exceeded my hopes and experience. One could not ask for more from your stay here, and the place is run/managed by an exceptional couple who make every effort to make their guests feel welcome....and special. This is the perfect place for anyone looking for a unique vacation, or time away from the usual busyness of...

From the booking to the time we left my mom and I couldn't have asked for more from the folks who run this truly unique hotel. The experience is hard to describe. Sleeping in the trees amongst the beautiful branches is unlike anything I could have expected. The orb itself is a true work of art and would impress anyone....

We went to Vancouver for our honeymoon just to experience a stay at the Free Spirit Spheres. Upon arrival, we were greeted by two lovely hosts who acclimated us to the property and the surrounding area. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We just loved our stay in Eryn, it was truly a pleasure to...
