Treehouse in the middle of Atlanta

th1

Next month I’ll be going to Atlanta for a music festival with my girlfriend. While we were looking for accommodations on Airbnb, I came across this really cool treehouse located pretty centrally in the city. If we’d be spending more time at the actual place we’re staying, I’d be seriously tempted to rent this place. There is a bedroom and separate living room just a short walk across the bridge. I really like the rustic look they’ve managed to acheive & I really wish I had this thing in my backyard!

From the listing:

Suite of 3 connected treehouses set in the secluded intown neighborhood of Buckhead. The living room, bedroom and deck are all beautifully furnished with antiques and natural artifacts. We’re nestled amongst towering trees yet minutes from midtown Atlanta. Wine and breakfast included. Truly Unique!

The Space
Centrally located within the heart of intown Atlanta, this is a secluded gem. The subject of numerous TV and magazine features, this may be the most romantic, unique, dreamy and fun place you’ll ever stay. Fall asleep in the trees and wake up to the birds singing around you!

Living Room: Antique furnishings including 80 year old butterfly-filled windows, 12-candle chandelier, and a balcony overlooking an acre of lush woods. It is the perfect place to relax.

Bedroom: Sleeps 2. The pillow-top double bed is fitted with sumptuous linens and slides out onto a platform that overlooks the stream below. A small desk, primitive side-tables, an antique birdcage, Kilim rugs, candles and fairy lights make it as comfortable as it is magical.

Deck: Circular seating and a hammock lying beneath a 150 year old Southern Short-Leaf Pine tree.

The treehouses are open to the elements but are protected by rain with tin roofs and mosquitoes by the elevation and breeze.

Guest Access
Guests will have free parking in our driveway (We highly recommend renting a car in Atlanta) and access to a private, indoor bathroom within the main house (about a 20 second walk from the treehouses).

Interaction with Guests
Upon your arrival, we will have a great bottle of wine waiting for you and will provide coffee and a light breakfast each morning.

Sounds pretty great, right? Ill definitely be keeping this place in my back pocket for a nice little getaway sometime.

Like Swimming Holes? How about this one…

If you’re a fan of natural swimming holes, then this is one you’re not gonna want to miss. The “Devil’s Pool” is perched on the edge of Victoria Falls on Livingstone Island in Zambia. It’s been officially crowned the most dangerous pool in the world and attracts people from all over the world.

It goes without saying that there have been a few deaths associated with this spectacular place, so it should be noted that the best time to visit is between September and December, when the rock barrier at the edge of the falls forms a barrier that creates a small eddy with minimal currents–because–ya know, you wouldn’t want to get swept over the edge or anything.

Until you make it there yourself, enjoy these pics:
