Wow that’s some great wanderlust material? ?Any of them kids friendly by any chance? Phuket ones look just perfection, we agree and perhaps closest to a family friendly getaway?
Most of the treehouses featured are aimed at couples although there are a few exceptions.
The Yews, the newest treehouse in Chewton Glen in the UK, sleeps up to 4 adults and 8 children so would be fabulous for two families holidaying together.
And I know Tinyeleti Treehouse at Lion Sands Kruger Park (one of the other treehouses owned by the same people as Chalkley Treehouse) has twin pullout beds as well as a double bed.
And while the two types of treehouses at Keemala only have one bedroom each, there are also two-bedroom ‘Clay Pool Cottages’ in the same resort that would be great for a family (but they aren’t treehouses I’m afraid).
I want to stay in all of these! Probably the Phuket ones or the one in the Blue Ridge Mountains. One of my (many…) ambitious business plans is to open a selection of vegan tree houses in a national park, they are such wonderful forms of accommodation!
That sounds like a fabulous idea! Do let us know WHEN it happens. Keep dreaming and make those dreams come true!
Oh my! The one with the swimming pool in Thailand! I would go to these in a heartbeat
Aren’t they fabulous? Your very own pool in a tree!!
These are wonderful! I’d be happy to stay in any of them but I love the hobbit houses in Thailand and that wonderful open air place in South Africa!
If I had to choose just one it would be Denmark
These look amazing! I stayed in a treehouse in Thailand years ago but it was a lot more rough and ready than these beautiful spots.
Aren’t they fabulous?! And I’m keeping an eye out for more to add to the collection!
I loved our stay at Treehouse Lodge in Peru – such an adventure and so much wildlife to see. The food was amazing too. Very happy memories from our stay there.
Wow, there are some real bucket list destinations here. I’d be so tempted to try and experience one of these one day. The Keemala Tree Pool Houses look stunning!
