While visiting the beautiful, mysterious forests of Vancouver Island, you will need somewhere to stay. Why book a room at an ordinary hotel when you can stay in a tiny spherical room suspended high in the rainforest canopy? At Free Spirit Spheres, you can enjoy astonishing views of the rainforest while surrounding yourself with unique otherworldly architecture.
In all, there are three spheres: the Eve Sphere, the Eryn Sphere, and the Melody Sphere. Let’s check out each of them.
Eve is situated in a cedar and maple grove. The sphere measures 9 feet in diameter with 44 inch diameter windows.
Eve features a single bed and some lovely furnishings.
As this view shows, the treehouse is snug, but not cramped. There is room to walk. The bed is a single, so this particular sphere is best suited to solo travellers.
You can see Eve in the upper right. Down on the lower left, there is a compost toilet (there are no toilets in the pods themselves). Perhaps that is all for the best, considering the bathroom actually looks rather luxurious.
Here is a cool view from the door of Eve gazing up through the canopy.
Eryn is a larger sphere than Eve. It can sleep up to three people. There is a double bed inside plus a loft.
Eryn hangs amongst cedar branches.
While the space was created with two to three guests in mind, one person could also be very comfortable staying in this larger accommodation. There is even enough room in here for a counter with a small fridge, some cupboards, and purified water. Additionally, there is a built-in sound system, so you can bring your music or videos and enjoy them to their fullest.
As with Eve, Eryn has no self-contained bathroom. Instead, the bathroom is located at ground level 50 meters away.
The spiral staircase leading up to Eryn is hand-crafted out of yellow cedar.
This is a view looking down from the loft bed. In all, there are five windows, one of which is a skylight, so plenty of amazing views of the surrounding canopy.
The newest structure to join the Free Spirit Spheres is Melody. This yellow fiberglass pod has an eye-catching mural and can be reached by crossing over a bridge and climbing up a short set of stairs.
Melody is the same size as Eryn, but the interior is black walnut and is set up to offer a spacious abode.
Much of the furniture can be collapsed when it isn’t needed (i.e. the bed and the workstations).
When the bed is in the down position, it takes up most of the floor space.
When the bed is folded up out of the way, the two tables can be folded down out of the wall. These are perfect for working or dining. Those seats along the walls sure look comfy.
The bathroom is located in a separate structure.
This imaginative little structure isn’t some kind of magical mushroom from Wonderland. It’s actually the composting toilet which is situated near the foot bridge.
Here is an interesting perspective shot from above.
