The round cabins on Vancouver Island can sleep two people and come with a composting toilet and kitchenette
Holidaymakers with a sense of adventure can fulfil their childhood dream of sleeping in a tree house in these floating yellow globes.
The round cabins hover 10 to 14 feet off the ground among the forest canopy of Vancouver Island in Canada.
Free Spirit Spheres is the brainchild of Tom Chudleigh, who was inspired to build a series of round tree houses in the early 1990s.
They are made from a fibreglass sphere set into a wood frame, with the finished globe measuring 9 to 10 feet in diameter.
Yellow cedar or Sitka spruce line the exterior, while interior finishes are completed in mahogany or teak.
The cosy interiors sleep up to two people, and include a composting toilet and bathroom suite just a few steps away on ground level.
The round shape of the cabins give them a different, supernatural feel to most of the tree houses on the market.
But Tom wasn’t inspired by UFOs, he was actually trying to make the cabins ‘harmonise’ with the environment.

He said: “Architecture is a way of shaping and creating habitat to harmonise with the environment and the sphere is a form of architecture that reflects that thought of unity and feeling of oneness.
“Where normal square and rectangular housing separate walls, floor and ceiling with hard lines and often colour and material changes – in a sphere they all become one.”
A night in the trees starts at $130 (£80), and there are a wide range of outdoor activities located nearby.
