Luxurious treehouse on stilts in the canopy of the lush vegetation of Hawaii (Big Island). A narrow path covered with red lava chippings leads to this little paradise. The first thing you’ll encouter at ground level is a hanging bed, suspended beneath the floor – above, sitting enthroned on its stilts, you’ll see a pretty, solid built wooden hut with generous window areas and bamboo fixtures.
You access the all round porch through a trap door after climbing up the 15-feet-high ladder-stairs. A Glass sliding door leads into the interior of the hut with its bedroom and the bathroom, whose glass lamella windows contribute to an “indoor-outdoor effect”. The shower is fed by rain water, the gray water from the hand wash basin is used for the toilet flushing. All equipment is designed with sustainability and ecology kept in mind: without having to forego too much comfort, you’ll get a realistic impression of an off-grid concept that is based on the principles of solar energy, daylight and rainwater use. For each booked night, a donation will be made via Cool Earth for the protection of the rainforest in Papua New Guinea – as a result 3.5 tonnes of CO2 are saved every night you sleep in the tree house.
There is no cooking facility in this accommodation. However, equipped with a gramophone music player for iPhones, binoculars, some books and a card game, a coffee maker and a cooler for food and drinks, and due to its tasteful interior design this tree house is surely a enchanting place – a perfect retreat, not only for couples. Due to the positive reactions by guests about the lack of wifi, the owner doesn’t plan to put wifi in.
