About This Listing
We have a cozy fun treehouse with amazing views and a deck for having coffee in the mornings. If you want to feel like a child again with that spirit of adventure this is the place for it.
The treehouse is located within a 42 acre property with a private gate in what we call a "mountain retreat". We're up in the mountains of Saint Helena. We have a big saltwater swimming pool with mountain views.
We had to remodel and upgrade the interior of the "treehouse" recently. It now has a full size bed, a skylight and new floors since, the tree that used go through the middle of it died and had to be removed.
There is an additional charge of $25 for a second person.
The bathroom/shower is shared if we have other guests at the Loft, and it is available at the second floor of the "Barn" not too far away.
A "continental" breakfast in the morning is included. Which is usually coffee, cereals and fruit when available.
This is really a TREE HOUSE not a house on a tree. It has no electricity, heat or AC. We have a power bar in the barn for charging your devices if needed. We also provide a battery operated lantern and flash light.
We're in the middle of may acres of wilderness and there are creatures around so, if you're uncomfortable encountering spiders, bugs, lizards, frogs, bats, very rare but, occasional snake, etc., spending the night in the second story of a barn or a treehouse may not be the best choice.
We started bee hives on the property which is a common and generally harmless farm activity but, if you are allergic to them, it is certainly a consideration that needs to be done.
We are 15 miles (about 1/2 hr. drive) from downtown St. Helena, which is full of great shops and restaurants. Napa is 20 to 25 miles depending on which way you go (30 to 45 minutes drive).
We are also close to great wineries and two fantastic lakes, Lake Berryessa and Lake Hennessey, which have great hiking trails, fishing and boating.
Please remember you're visiting a home, not a hotel.
No check in after 9 pm unless previously agreed.
We do this not only because we work and need our sleep but also because it is a curvy mountain road and it's best traveling up here in daylight.
We do not allow smoking. We live in a very dry wooded area so, fires are a major danger.
We have a septic and a compost system so please be kind to it and don't throw anything in the toilet (other than toilet paper) or down the drain. Always use the fan when in the bathroom and shower and keep the lid down on the toilet.
We recycle the gray water from the sink and shower so, please only use biodegradable soaps and shampoos which we provide.
Please "squeegee" the shower glass after you're done. It is a small bathroom so please hang your towels out on the hooks in the loft.
The Bathroom in the loft is shared with the tree house if we have guests in both places. Please be considerate of our other guests and keep it tidy. Use the curtain in the loft if you would like more privacy.
We are pet friendly and welcome well behaved socialized doggies as long as you are responsible for them at all times. This is a large unfenced property with lots of wild life around so please keep an eye on your pets. There is an additional $20 fee per dog, per night.
We do not receive young children as guests. Sorry, too many potential liabilities with the pool, the dogs and many acres of open wilderness with a wide range of wildlife.
The fee for the loft is $70 per person per night. If you would like to bring additional guest please let us know and we can alter your reservation though AirBNB. We prefer all additional charges like extra guests, and dogs be done in advance and though AirBNB. We used to hold a reservation for less people and then ask for cash upon arrival for any additional guests but, unfortunately we've been burnt more than once by doing that and the sour after taste of the unpleasant experiences, however few indeed, lasts for a long time. So, You'll have to make your reservation through AirBNB for the maximum number of guests and nights you could anticipate. We want to avoid last minute, once here and after stay financial negotiations as much as possible.
We do not receive "day guests" or "guests of guests". If you are at the property means you are a paid guest.
No kitchen or laundry use is included. This means no cooking, weather you bring your own grill or camp stove. You are not staying on a campground. There is a refrigerator available in the barn for drinks or snacks and that's fine.
Please don't leave food or drinks laying around unattended, there are mice, bugs and other creatures attracted to that. Remember it's a barn or a treehouse in open wilderness.
Please remember to check out at noon, specially if we have other guests coming.
If you have any questions please email us though AirBNB it is too hard to keep track with my private email.
Please keep in mind that there is no cell phone service up here, we ask that all our guests review the house rules and manual before their arrival. And please PRINT your directions and gate code. Gps is not always reliable and cell phones don't work up in the mountains.
Please enjoy the pool and the outside areas. Let us know if you need anything and most of all enjoy your visit!

Wendi and Carlos were great hosts. Their property is just simply amazing and the tree house is charming. The bathroom is just a step away from the tree house and has everything you need. The barn is filled with beautiful art and pottery. Sleeping in the tree house was comfortable and cozy, just make sure to bring some warm sleeping clothes, as temperatures do go down during the night.
We really enjoyed our stay in the Tree house. The house, grounds and amenities were exactly as described and Wendi and Carlos are impeccable hosts. I personally loved the quietness of the area, the pool and the many pets. What a great get away! I can highly recommend you staying here :-)
Wendi and Carlos were wonderful hosts. They were kind and made us feel very comfortable and welcome from the minute we arrived. The treehouse was a blast! You will likely never remember a hotel room, but you WILL remember this place. Beautiful property, adorable accommodations (it's a grownup playhouse) and lovely hosts. If you like adventures and making memories, I highly recommend staying here. Thank you Wendi and Carlos!!!
Wendy and Carlos were gracious and kind hosts. It is a crafty people's dream out there. Nestled in the valley with breathtaking views. There is art all around to inspire. Will recommend to friends and hopefully visit again. Carlos was very patient with my Noob-ness about airbnb.
Fantastic location in the hills near Lake Berryessa. I was greeted by Carlos and showed me around. Everything I'd wanted was near, most of all a comforting bed and a relaxing experience.
I can defenitely recommend visiting Wendy & Carlos. They are very accomodating hosts and felt right at home
