A bohemian treehouse
If you want to bask in a bit of nature on your metropolitan getaway, check into this urban treehouse, situated on a permaculture farm in the metro Miami area. The private room at the top of this treehouse overlooks a mini-jungle, replete with goats, pigs and roosters galore. The outdoor shower and mosquito canopy around the double bed add to the location’s off-the-grid flair, and the quaint oasis is still central to Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood.
