Treetop Living: 10 Magnificent Airbnb Treehouses Around The World

Posted Dec 14, 2016

Treehouses seem to be a staple in many children’s lives, but they aren’t just for kids to play in. They’re now also actual vacation rentals that you can view on Airbnb and book to stay in. While it’s a great and unique vacation experience if you stay in a treehouse, it’s definitely not for the fainthearted. If you’re terrified of heights, or if you have any health conditions that render you physically unfit to climb up the many steps in many treehouses, you might want to look for other types of accommodation. Experience treetop living in these 10 magnificent Airbnb treehouses around the world, and feel as though you’re king or queen of the world, even if it’s just for a short while.

1. Deep in a small Thai village, Thailand (64 USD)

Located in a small village that’s mostly surrounded by teakwood forests lies this extremely tall Airbnb treehouse. It was built lovingly as a family vacation home by a retired architect, so you can rest assured that it’s sturdy and safe. And for tourists who enjoy adventures, the area is littered with bat caves and hiking trails, so take your time to explore the area before retreating into the treehouse.

For anyone worried about not getting any shut-eye in this treehouse, the sleeping area is comfortable and comes with two plush beds, so you should be able to rest well. When you head out of the treehouse, there’s an outdoor shower so you can keep yourself squeaky clean. There’s also an outdoor deck for you to feel as though you’re on the top of the world!

And, as you head to the ground floor of the treehouse, there’s a wooden swing that you’re welcome to use. Sway back and forth in the wind and enjoy the natural breeze flowing through your hair.

2. Treehouse on a beautiful resort, Fiji (120 USD)

This Airbnb treehouse is a great choice if you want to vacation on a peaceful and quiet island. This treehouse is part of a beautiful resort in Fiji. However, it’s off the main grounds of the main resort, and is instead hidden away on an old coconut plantation! So you’ll most definitely have your desired private island getaway.

The living room is roomy and has plenty of seats, from lounge chairs to arm chairs; just have a seat to rest your tired legs. The bedroom is bright and vibrant, and comes with a perfectly comfortable bed so you can have a great night’s sleep. The bathroom is large and luxurious so you can bathe comfortably and privately. Also, feel free to head out to the large, sprawling deck where you can tuck into a meal while enjoying the view. Or relax on the lounge chairs to soak up the sun’s rays in the day, or enjoy the starry skies at night.

And to top it all off, you’ll even have access to the larger resort compound, which is just filled to the brim with wonderful amenities and facilities! So how about making a splash in the pool during a warm day? Or relaxing by having a professional massage at the spa?

3. Adorable fairytale-esque treehouse, UK (129 USD)

This vacation rental treehouse and its surroundings look as though they’re from a page of an adorable fairytale. It’s perched in a large ash tree and surrounding it are sweeping views of the countryside and the expansive sea. This Airbnb is also pretty secluded from most of civilisation, so you can enjoy a peaceful and quiet stay here!

This treehouse was lovingly designed and constructed by its owner and you can really view the intricacies of the carvings. You can also see how the builder paid such close attention to detail, so as to assure that space is as comfortable as possible.

Tucked into a corner of the treehouse is a small and simple sitting-cum-dining area. With the two-burner stove and grill, you can easily whip up a simple but delicious meal and tuck into it right at the dining table. If you look across the sitting-cum-dining area, you’ll have access to the composting toilet, which you can make use of without stinking up the entire treehouse.

4. Treehouse in a rainforest, Costa Rica (129 USD)

This large and beautifully handcrafted treehouse is part of a natural resort that lies on a 35-acre (14-hectare) rainforest. This ensures that you’ll have gorgeous views and absolute quiet. There are large screened areas for the natural breeze to pass through, which will help cool down the treehouse. Hang on tight though, because the treehouse sometimes shakes during strong winds. If you’re not up for that, just choose another Airbnb treehouse!

The bedroom is comfortable and comes with some hangers so you can put your clothes away neatly and keep them out of sight. And, just in case the natural breeze passing through doesn’t keep you cool, the bedroom also comes with an additional fan so you can rest comfortably. The ground floor of the treehouse also comes with an additional bed, so extra people can stay here. Head out to the wrap-around balcony so you can enjoy the amazing views of the rainforest, and keep your eyes out for the animals roaming the area.

Also lying around the resort area and the treehouse are some hot springs. If the weather permits, you’re free to make use of them to relax. So, how about having a soak while surrounded by the tall trees?

The living-cum-dining area is beautifully well lit and is extremely comfortable. It also feels homey and is well decorated, so just feel free to sit and relax, instead of heading into busy Toronto.

Lie back in the hammock and really feel as though you’re hanging on the top of the world.

10. In-town but secluded treehouse, USA (350 USD)

This treehouse was named in January 2016 as Airbnb’s most wish-listed property in the world, and we can definitely see why! Despite being located in the heart of Atlanta, it’s mostly secluded and is a great place to stay if you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The bedroom is brightly lit with natural lighting and the fairy lights that hang on the walls help make the space feel more magical. The bed itself is as soft as a cloud, and sleeping on it will feel like a dream. The bed is also equipped with wheels, so you can push it onto the small platform outside the home where you’ll find yourself dangling above a calm stream.

The entire structure is connected by rope bridges so, as you cross them, you’ll get an adrenaline rush as you walk precariously to the other areas. Definitely make full use of the deck, which is completely open to the elements, and surrounds a 150-year-old tree! Hangout on the hammock, or have a fun game of darts.
