You could keep paying rent at your normal apartment, but you should instead consider paying even less to live in these exotic tree houses starting at $360/month.
It’s getting expensive to live in the cool cities, like San Francisco, where the median rent for a two-bedroom house is over $4,000/mo. Even in other cities, you’re paying a couple thousand bucks a month to live in a basic apartment. Maybe it’s time to reconsider your living situation. Not to mention, the U.S. Government just passed a $1.1 TRILLION dollar spending bill to keep the government from shutting down yesterday.
It’s time you headed off to an exotic treehouse somewhere nice. These spots range from $360 – $2,000/month in places ranging from darling Miami, Florida to Chiang Mai, Thailand. At least go for a month and read that book you’ve been putting off. All the photos are from the respective AirBnB listings.
Treehouse at Lush Permaculture Farm (Miami, Florida) – $65/night
“Enjoy goats, pigs, emus, chickens and a colorful community of people. Located in “Little Haiti,” near art district, 15 minutes from airport and South Beach. Fresh veggies, eggs and honey!” That sounds kind of nice, doesn’t it?
Tamarind Cottage Treehouse (Chiang Mai, Thailand) – $59/night
“Welcome to Chiang Mai Treehouse! We are a family-owned resort located in a small village, about 70 km(1.5 hr drive) from Chiang Mai city. The treehouse was designed and built with love and care.”
This one may be $59 per night, but remember, San Francisco’s median rent is $133 per night.
The Kyoto Hut (The Pocket, NSW, Australia) – $28/night
“In the Byron Bay Hinterland, 20 minutes from the beach & Byron, wake up to the sunrise & views over the valley & the Pacific Ocean.”
Where are you waking up now? What’s your view? The side of another building?

Magical Modern Bamboo Treehouse (Bali, Indonesia) – $45/night
“A plushly decorated bamboo tree house suspended above the rice-fields just minutes from central ubud down a secluded foot path. A swiss family robinson childhood fantasy come to life with all the plush amenities.”
