Seven cool tree houses around the world that you can visit and rent for a night, a week, or just for a dinner. Located in forests, tiger preserves, and next to the sea, these tree houses are ideal for anyone looking for a vacation that's a little out of the ordinary.
The Hapuku Lodge, nestled in a native Manuka grove, in New Zealand, rests 30 feet above the ground with a view over the Pacific coastline and Kaikoura's mountains. The lodge rents out a series of tree houses of different sizes, with options including a one-bedroom or a two-story tree house.
The one-bedroom house, ideal for a vacationing couple, contains a shower opening onto the deck, a light-filled fireplace, along with a king-size bed. The family house is a two-story building with a smaller floor below the main floor, where children can sleep.
