The Space


__________________________

A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.

BEFORE requesting any additional information or requesting a reservation. We will only respond to requests who have taken the time to do this! Thank you for your understanding.

The Treehouse is a perfect place for a getaway to reflect, rejuvenate, have a romantic weekend, or bring a child or two. Enjoy a bit of nature in this stately 150 year old Live Oak Tree overlooking San Francisco Bay. This is the best of both worlds… perched above it all in a quiet, urban forested canyon with a 15 minute drive to glorious San Francisco, 10 minutes from SFO, 20 minutes to Silicon Valley to the South and Half Moon Bay to the East-- and 2 miles to the Millbrae Train Station. The taxi ride from SFO is approximately $20, and from the Train Station approximately $8.

Suitable for candle-light dinners, relaxing, rejuvenating & simply enjoying the sights and sounds of nature! The treehouse has french doors, stained glass and other tasteful, yet whimsical appointments: rocking chair and other seating on tree house deck with view of the Bay. Fluffy down comforters/pillows and passive, eco-friendly heating to keep you warm and toasty.

The Treehouse is a very special retreat meant for individuals & couples--and, occasionally, a small family with school age children. The treehouse is 30ft high and is a wonderful way to feel like you are getting away from it all! It is NOT suitable for children under 6 years of age. As parents, you will not be able to fully enjoy the full specialness of the Treehouse while trying to keep your little one(s) out of harms way. You may want to make this a special time for just the two of you! There is a queen size bed in the sleeping loft and a lower level daybed. Serenity for 1, ideal for 2, Occasionally exceptions can be made for families with 3 small children over the age of 5. The treehouse is not suitable for 2 couples.

Accommodation includes indoor shower & kitchenette -dedicated to our Treehouse guests - in nearby lower level of family log cabin home. A short, private & lit path (approx 30 steps) leads to the entry of the private kitchenette & shower. We provide fluffy towels & shampoo/conditioner. The kitchenette amenities include a small fridge, coffeemaker, electric water kettle, tea, small microwave, toaster, hot-plate, table & chairs, sink.
For single night adventures, most guests want to savor their time in the treehouse rather than spending time cooking, & have pizza or sandwiches/salads delivered right to the treehouse! We have phone numbers posted for your convenience.

In the mornings, a light, continental style breakfast consisting of breads/fruit/coffee/tea/milk/orange juice is placed on the table in the kitchenette for you to enjoy at your leisure.

Come have a magical stay. Get in touch with your “inner primate”, the “child" within!

We will greet you and show you the essentials…and we are nearby and available by text should you need anything. We respect your privacy--this stay is for YOU!

Remember, this is a TREEHOUSE, a wee house in a tree - built with love for our own children 18 years ago. We are so happy to share this experience with you and we take great care in making your stay comfortable & inviting -- However, If you are expecting the Ritz, you may want to reconsider!

Parking for 1 car is dedicated for our treehouse guests.

  • My daughter and i ended our trip to San Francisco by staying 1 night at the treehouse and it was the perfect ending. The treehouse is nothing short of magical and Dough and Linda were really nice and communicative.

  • This tree house is absolutely delightful. Close attention has been paid to all details, making the entire experience charming and memorable. I think staying in tree houses around the world is going to be our new thing!

  • The listing was very accurate and Linda was such a welcoming and friendly hosts. We chatted with her for awhile and exchange hosts stories. We loved the novelty of the tree house and it was wonderfully rustic. They had a bottle of filtered water up in the tree house and a pot of water in a plug-in thermos for tea. The view during sunset was spectacular. The breakfast was great as well! We would totally stay here again.
    It's everyone's childhood fantasy fulfilled!

  • My boyfriend and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary by spending a night in the treehouse. It definitely exceeded my already high expectations! The diverse selection of books in the treehouse and kitchenette was amazing. We actually stayed up the entire night talking and playing board games. Everything was so organized--I loved it. We also had the fortunate opportunity to meet both Linda and Doug. They are both unbelievably friendly and welcoming. My only regret is that we had to leave after only one night!

    July 2014
  • A most amazing experience! My husband and I stayed two nights in the treehouse and were so sorry to leave. Everything about this place is fun and memorable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch looking at the view, reading the many treehouse books placed throughout the space and dreaming of building our own treehouse some day.

    Doug & Linda were out of town so we communicated with Emily. She was responsive and very helpful. The written instructions in the treehouse are clear and answered any questions we could have thought of. I stringly suggest ordering pizza - the best I've ever had and it was fun to tell the delivery person our address was a treehouse.

  • This was a Christmas gift from our children and we loved the experience! Whether you want to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the stillness, or play an old-fashioned game inside, or even snuggle and watch a movie, there is something for everyone. Linda and Doug were so accommodating and, in their absence, made sure every need of ours was met. It is clear that this is a labor of love for them. Had this been around when my daughter was 13, I would have jumped at this opportunity for a mother-daughter sleepover, but it is also great for couples and for quality alone-time. Thank you, Doug and Linda!

  • Great quite neighborhood. Clean and Fresh Air - away from busy city. Variaty of greatest beaches around. Great service and Unique House.

    June 2014
  • My wife and I had a fantastic experience in the treehouse!!! I especially did not expect to find myself feeling so connected to a living tree and enjoying feeling wrapped around all the rustling leaves. It was very nice environment for my wife and I have long talks, enjoy some cookies we brought, and find some quiet time to soak it in. The bed was also surprisingly comfortable! We only stayed one night so we did not get a chance to meet our hosts, but Linda and Doug were very detailed and organized - we felt very well taken care of! We hope to get a chance to experience it again in the future!

  • I'm posting this review for my friend, who stayed in the treehouse for her birthday:

    "I loved the tree house! So much fun! Such a magical and sweet place! Loved the little breakfast the morning too! The hosts were very accommodating."

    June 2014
  • I set out to take my 21 year old son on a 3 week adventure along CA Hwy 1 to celebrate his college graduation. I selected only unique and off-beat accommodations all along the way, wanting to make this trip as memorable as possible for my son and me. The Tree House was absolutely enchanting! There is a spectacular view of the Bay from the deck. Everything about this property and this adventure was perfect. It was certainly the highlight of my son's journey. We spent 3 nights and we were reluctant to leave. It's proximity to San Fransisco is a plus, but I could have been quite happy to see San Fransisco from no closer than right there in that tree! UNFORGETTABLE!

    Response from Doug & Linda:

    Hi Lisa!
    Thank you for the heads up re: chair legs!! Fixed!! Also, the little french door has a latch that locks one side (at the top of the door) so when the doors are latched -- it won’t blow open! But good thinking about putting something against the door! I’ll be sure to mention that top “lock”! We are so happy that you and your son enjoyed it! We would love to have you return some day!

About
Linda and I love nature, travel and meeting other people. Through Airbnb we’ve found we are connected with other travelers in a very special way. It’s great to share a few moments and as hosts to provide a unique and private accommodation for them. We are also happy to share our insights about the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area which we call home. We built this magical treehouse over a decade ago, respecting the stately Coast Live Oak in which it is securely floated. Over the years it has served our family, friends and this amazing tree quite well. We had no idea that it would bring such joy to so many interesting people from around the globe, but we are delighted by this. And now we are pleased to share our back 3 bedroom bungalow home with larger families for gatherings and as a convenient, secluded space from which to explore the Bay Area. We invite you to come share the magic! Doug and Linda
