National Post's September 2016 article about Free Spirit Spheres said "Glamping in Lothlórien"- and it is a dreamworld, for real, glamping at its best! Warm hosts, wonderful accommodation- everything is just perfect! Thank you Rosey, Tom, Jamie, Anna and Summer for one of the best memories in our lifetime :)

We had a wonderful night at Free Spirit Spheres! We had a great conversation with Jamie about the spheres and the Island. The spheres are equipped with all that you need and more. The composting toilet and nearby washrooms are immaculately clean. Thanks for a rejuvenating stay and visit! Beautiful concept that allows for a special and deeper connection with nature

We made an unfortunate mistake of booking the wrong date to stay at the free spirit Melody sphere. Anna went above and beyond to help us with our situation and managed to find someone to book our time spot to cover the rest of the costs of the room (we only lost the deposit instead of being on the hook for the full night stay). She also was very empathetic, bringing us some much needed chocolate and offering us beers as we sorted out our new accommodation. If we could not find acommodation for the night, she offered for us to stay in one of the spheres currently under construction. We greatly appreciate this level of customer service that is rarely found anywhere.

We were devastated not to spend the night, but will be back to experience the spheres! The facilities looked amazing and are a must visit in my opinion.

Hi Alex and Cristina,
Thank you so much for your kind words. While the circumstances upon meeting you both were unfortunate, I was so warmed by your kind-hearted attitudes. We sincerely hope that you two will be able to stay with us when you venture out west in the future.
I hope the rest of your trip and your time in Tofino was incredible. :)
All the best,

We were fortunate to take advantage of a late cancellation and got to spend a night in the Eryn sphere during peak June period. This place is booked up months in advance so we felt really lucky. It is absolutely worth it. Eryn had a double bed and a sitting area. Despite how small it seems, it was roomy for my wife and I. We packed a quick overnight bag for the stay and left the rest in our luggage locked in our car as you won't be able to fit big luggage in the sphere. Anna welcome and checked us in at the office sphere (also cool). She took us around the property all amenities. They only had 2 operating sphere at the time. So it was super quite and peaceful. Wifi was strong as required. Great for streaming music to the bluetooth speaker in the sphere as the sound as great in the sphere. the bed was comfortable, love the welcome basket of food and drink with yogurt parfait in the mini fridge for breakfast. This is a once in a live-time experience. Do it!

My wife and I stayed in Eryn and LOVED it. From the moment we arrived, we were unable to wipe the grins off our faces. Staying in a sphere hanging from a tree is magical. When we arrived we were met, greeted and given a tour of our sphere and the grounds. The sphere was cozy without feeling cramped and felt perfectly sized for the two of us (we are both about 6' and 200lbs). The bed would have been tight if we did not like sleeping close, but for us it was perfect. There was a huge amounts of snacks provided and we spent a fair amount of time reading together and looking out the circular window. The composting toilet near the base of the tree was clean and good as far as composting toilets go, but during the day we preferred the full private bath located a short walk away with a flush toilet and shower. We stayed two nights, and my only regret is not staying three.
The only downsides are: The location is not easy to find (we drove by it the first time). The ferry schedule means that you have to wake up much earlier than I would have liked the morning we left. Staying in the off season and on the weekend meant that many of the local businesses were closed (that was not a big deal to us as we prefer hiking and beaches to shopping).
In the end, despite costing far more per night than I am comfortable with, it was worth every penny and the only thing I would change is that we would stay at least three nights if I had it to do over.
