Myself and my girlfriend stayed in the larger sphere, Eryn, for 2 amazing nights in May/June 2010. We had first seen the spheres on the internet about 18 months beforehand so had been looking forward to our stay for quite a while. Our expectations were surpassed and we were totally blown away by the whole experience of sleeping up in the trees. I've never felt anything like the sensation of waking up to the sound of rustling branches and actually being up in a tree! All the spheres are works of art and so brilliantly crafted by Tom. Every last space inside Eryn is so brilliantly used and even has heating, a fridge and an electric hook up for an Mp3 player so you can experience true surround sound! We really enjoyed speaking to Tom and finding out how he came about the idea for the spheres. It was a privilege to stay in Eryn and enjoy the swaying of the sphere in the wind, it made us both feel like children in a magical tree house.
Tom and Rosie were excellent hosts, really friendly, nice people who made every effort to make sure we had a unique experience. From the welcome basket of fruit and baked goods to the sauna, the quality of service and hospitality was fantastic. The prices aren't too expensive and for the life experience it's well worth it. We would definitely recommend Free Spirit Spheres to anyone visiting Vancouver or Vancouver Island as you're guaranteed a magical time.
