Cannot express how much we loved these spheres. We traveled with another couple, so we got to experience both the Eve and Melody spheres. First, Tom and Rosie are amazing. Their intelligence, passion, and creativity is evidenced by the craftsmanship of the spheres, the well appointed grounds and facilities, and the few life stories they shared with us. Getting to chat with such interesting people during our stay was a pleasant unexpected bonus.
Second, the sphere experience is very unique. Hovering amongst the trees and birds while looking out rounded windows towards a little lake was peaceful and beautiful. While the Eve was a little tight, it was still sufficient space for two. Every nook and cranny was well planned and all of our things were tucked away just perfectly maximizing space. Apparently Tom spent 5 years building Eve, and the quality is very impressive.
Our friends stayed in Melody, which is larger than Eve. At night the four of us comfortably were able to sit around the table inside and play games and enjoy the sphere.
Overall our stay was very memorable and I would definitely go back. I could imagine taking my hypothetical kids up there in the future to explore the spheres and local community.

Such an amazing and unique experience. I stayed in the Eryn sphere for one night with my boyfriend while we were making our way from Victoria to Tofino. The sphere was so cozy and comfortable, and the engineering and design behind the sphere is just incredibly intelligent and such a marvel. The owners/hosts also do such a great job of making your stay 100% comfortable. They prepared a big snack basket for us inside our sphere filled with baked goods, granola bars, and fruit, and another small plate of fruit and cheesecake and a small bottle of champagne. They also prepared the most delicious yogurt parfait for us to eat for breakfast the next morning.
Lying in the sphere in the forest is just the most amazing and tranquil experience. Our sphere had a wireless bluetooth speaker which we used to play relaxing music in the evening and in the morning. The acoustics in the sphere are fantastic. I loved waking up in the sphere and just staring outside the window in the morning, looking at the tree branches surrounding us with some soft jazz music playing in the background.
For anyone who is worried, the bathroom facilities are also super clean and modern and comfortable. They are just a short walk away and there are headlamps provided in case you need to walk there at night.
I honestly can’t recommend this experience enough! It was definitely pricey ($330 for one night, and our sphere was the cheapest available), but I am really glad we did it and am looking forward to returning again in the future!

Seriously awesome. My girlfriend and I visited the last weekend and it was a once in a lifetime experience. The spheres are perfectly round and masterfully crafted from either wood or fiberglass. They are magnificently suspended between 3 trees using heavy duty roping and a sphere harness system. The insides of the spheres were not only comfortable but a true work of carpentry.
As an engineers, we take our hats off to the level of detail and work put into making these spheres a living possibility.
Architecture, craftsmanship, and engineering aside, the experience of living in the beautiful trees of the Pacific Northwest was outstanding. The tranquility of the woods and the dazzling array of stars in the night sky made this trip worth it. Waking up in a sphere amongst the trees was a really cool experience too.
Take a trip up to Qualicum Beach – you can thank me later!

This place is a wonderful little gateway even for an evening!! What an experience to be able to disconnect and be all bundled up in a little forest!
We where even surprised with a beautiful welcome basket that contained way more then we needed! Such a great personal touch!
The couple running the spheres are so sweet they even placed a happy birthday sign on the door and brought us over a piece of cake as we were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday!!
Every sphere had there own deligated washroom and there is a BBQ and little kitchen to cook your food.
Definitely a must go location!

This place had been on my bucket list for a while and for our honeymoon my Husband and I splurged on one night in the Eryn sphere. This was a big determining factor for why we honeymooned In BC. The sphere was bigger than I expected and had lots of storage space, a sink and a fridge. There is an outhouse at the bottom of each sphere and a lovely full bathroom for each sphere about 500m away.
The owners are very sweet and put a congratulations banner on our sphere as well as left a bottle of champagne and a basket of goodies.
There are also lots of attractions to visit nearby.
Quiet rooms, helpful concierge, Good room service and thoughtful amenities

My husband and I came here as a part of our 10th Anniversary Trip. From the moment we called to make our reservation, to driving away from the property, it was a wonderful experience. When we called to reserve Melody, they asked if we were celebrating anything and said they would hang a sign for us and have champagne waiting for us in our sphere. The property is beautiful, with huge trees in every direction and a peaceful pond in the center. Melody was very comfortable and I loved feeling like I was living amongst these mammoth trees. It sprinkled rain on us all night which was actually quite relaxing and peaceful. We both loved the whole experience. The little outhouse right next to the sphere is adorable and even includes map pencils to encourage creative messages & pictures. The bathhouse is just a few steps more away and is extremely clean and modern. It includes a mini-kitchen and a cozy sauna. When we arrived, we got a little mini-tour of the property, including a glance at the newest spheres that are in the building phase in the workshop where we met Tom, the brains behind the operation. Everyone was super friendly from beginning to end. It was our favorite part of our trip and we hope to go back before we hit another 10 years. 😀

An amazing adventure at Free Spirit Spheres. We stayed in Eryn for my best friends birthday. They had a little birthday surprise for her and a birthday banner as we were entering our sphere. Eryn was comfortable, very cozy and well crafted. So welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. We will all come back

I had an amazing experience here! I went alone and it was the coolest gift I’ve ever given myself. Tom and Rosie are so accommodating… truly amazing human beings with such passion for what they do. The sphere was clean and everything I needed was provided for me. I was greeted with an abundant basket of snacks that was just above and beyond my expectations (couldn’t even finish it!). The bath house was very nice as well. Tom and Rosie gave me suggestions on which local sights to see. I will most definitely be back, hopefully for longer next time! The pond was gorgeous and I saw many bunnies and a deer as well! A truly magical experience. 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

By far the coolest place I have ever stayed. My boyfriend and I stayed here on our tour of the PNW. It was a wonderful experience. We stayed in the Eve sphere, which comfortably fits two people. Jamie and Rosey were very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. It is an amazing place to enjoy some peace and quiet while enjoying a truly unique and memorable accommodation. The welcome snacks were a delight! We received pastries, yogurt, small bottle of champagne, fruit, and cookies. It was very nice to have snacks to munch on the next morning rather than rushing off to breakfast. Free Spirit Spheres is a memorable experience and I will definitely be back.
