1. The boy jumped off the balcony to a tree house.

  2. The boy jumped from the balcony to a tree house.

His intention with the jump is to reach the tree house, which is on a height level with the balcony.

Are both the suggestions fine? Do you have a better one? Thank you.

To “jump off” something implies jumping and then falling, to the ground is implied unless stated otherwise. When jumping “to” another thing, you would use “jumped from X to Y”.
