The 12 Best Tree Houses You Can Actually Stay In

Your Swiss Family Robinson-themed vacation is just a booking away.

I don't know about you, but I always wanted a tree house when I was a kid. There's something about hanging out in a tree that universally screams, "FUN!" and that feeling never goes away. Thankfully, some architects never outgrew that instinct, and designed tree houses that make for perfect adult playgrounds.

For those of us worried about our environmental impact, many tree houses available for rent are designed with sustainability in mind. All over the world, architects and builders worked with different ecosystems and natural landscapes to build homes that blend in with the environment.

I spent some time searching for the most amazing treehouses to spend a few nights in, acting like I was searching for my own AirBnB. Even better, most of these tree houses are located in or around scenic landscapes, national forests and famous beaches. From Hawaiian volcanoes and Spanish mountains, to Italian villas and the Outback of Australia, tree houses can be found anywhere. These twelve rentals are guaranteed to ensure that your trip is unforgettable.
