Here is a link to the finalist to a Treehouse Designing Competition. Some of the designs have a definate Polynesian flavor.

Cool! The wife and I stayed in a tree house on Kona for 2 nights on our honey moon. It was in the Waippio(sp?)valley, near Upolu Point. It had a small kitchenette in it and a bathroom on the landing halfway up the staircase. It was really nice, but the first night a big storm hit. That tree was really rockin!

This isn't tiki, but it is the nicest tree houses I've seen for a hotel. This is the Post Ranch in Big Sur. I live very near by it.

Thanks for the link, Chongo. I love this kinda stuff. Some of the designs look like they are not taking into account that palm trees are not rigid steel columns but flexible woody ones.
