What is a treehouse?

Have you ever wondered about staying in a treehouse? As the name implies, a treehouse is a type of accommodation inside, on top of, or attached in some way to a tree. Treehouses vary in size and shape. You can find wood cabins built into tree canopies, and even hip metallic cubes within tree tops. Treehouses are set in forests or woods.

Why should I stay in a treehouse?

If you want to relive your childhood and spend your time above ground, this quirky accommodation might just be the right one for you. Travellers who enjoy being surrounded by nature will likely enjoy staying in a treehouse, too. There's nothing quite like falling asleep to the rustling of tree leaves and waking up to the chirping of birds for a nature lover.


Where do you find treehouses?

Treehouses are an unusual type of accommodation, which makes them quite rare, no matter where you are. You'll find a few in North American woods, some in forests in India, on the beaches of Phuket, and even on the coast in Turkey. You can check out the forests in your intended destination, and see if there are any treehouse rentals available.


How much does it cost to stay in a treehouse?

Because of their quirkiness, treehouses aren't the cheapest lodging option. They're hard to build, and the few there are often feature unique decor that makes the most of their setting. That being said, it is possible to find a treehouse that fits your budget by choosing an affordable destination or opting for a treehouse resort.

How to book a treehouse

To find the treehouse of your dreams, you can search on Expedia the same way you would for a conventional hotel room. You can narrow down your choices by filtering the search results according to property type. Its also worth your time to check out flights on the site, as you can score good deals by bundling your flight and accommodation together.


What do treehouses offer?

A treehouse stay is an experience in itself and the best treehouse will make you feel completely immersed in nature. Treehouses are set in woods or forests, and offer guests magnificent views of the canopy and undergrowth, as well as the soothing sounds of birds. Some treehouses have beautifully styled interiors that make them ideal for couples. You can also get roomy treehouses that are perfect for small families.


Treehouses vs villas

How can you tell the difference between treehouses and villas? Villas are all about comfort and relaxation, and if that's what you and your family are after when you go on vacation, they make the most sensible lodging choice. If you want to be adventurous, a treehouse might just be the type of accommodation you're after. Treehouses are quirky and fun, and you'll find a good number of these accommodations with enough space for the whole family.
