Free Spirit Spheres

Qualicum Bay, British Columbia

A "oneness" theme is central to Tom and Rosey Chudleigh's woodland hideaway on Vancouver Island: Each of the couple's three rentable spheres was designed to blend innocuously into its natural surroundings. The cozy modules are strung to 15 feet off the ground with heavy-duty ropes and are anchored by nearby timber; they sway ever so gently with the whims of Mother Nature (or more turbulently as guests move about inside). The orbs are wired with electricity and stay toasty-warm in winter. Guests must be 16 or older.
