On the approach to Hoots Treehouse, one would be forgiven for thinking that the secret cabin of a creature straight out of a fairytale lies ahead. This impression is partly created by the woodland surroundings, though it is mostly in the design of the building that the magic lies. The circular structure stands elevated in the forest, accessible by a long boardwalk that almost blends into the backdrop. It is lovely to behold and the inside only gets better.
Hoots Treehouse is mainly one large room. Within this space are a queen-size bed, a small dining table and chairs, a comfy armchair, and a small kitchen area. Whether lit by sunlight or a lamp, the room is wonderful. There is no escaping wood as the theme here and it the material of choice for all aspects of this treehouse, from the exterior walls to the bedframe. It makes guests feel as though they never really leave the forest. This feeling is amplified by the large verandah that stretches along the front of the house and wraps around the side. Plenty of furniture here encourages guests to spend most of their time relaxing in the outdoors, enveloped by the forest. With enough blankets and cushions to go around, this area can be enjoyed at any time of the year.
Though it may look small, Hoots Treehouse can fit a family of 4. The loft space within can fit two children, though only those older than 6. This space is a perfect adventure hide-away, and children of all ages are guaranteed to love bunking up here to sleep. The forest provides an awesome playground too, for kids and grown-ups alike!
The host of Hoots Treehouse goes above and beyond to make all the guests feel welcome and truly at home. They ask for a minimum stay of 2 nights and the rates for this start at €250 in low season. Rates vary according to the day of the week and time of the year.
