Our little treehouse (now for grown ups) offers the best of both worlds - securely nestled above it all in a quiet forested canyon with a serene Bay view, yet 20 minutes to San Francisco, 10 to SFO and an easy scenic drive to the Pacific Ocean and the Silicon Valley.

The space

Serenity for 1, ideal for 2, the Treehouse is a very special retreat for one adult or a couple. Sorry, NO CHILDREN!

Suitable for candle-light dinners, relaxing, reflecting, rejuvenating or simply enjoying the sights and sounds of nature - birds singing, morning sun rays sprinkling through the rustling leaves, a squirrel scampering across the roof! Enjoy the sunset or sunrise with a beautiful view of the San Francisco Bay from the wrap-around deck. Fluffy down duvet comforter/pillows & quilts will keep you warm and cozy. Comfy queen size bed w/crisp linens in the sleeping loft and a lower level chaise/reading nook.

Remember, this is a true TREEHOUSE, a wee house in our big 150 year old Live Oak tree, which we built with love for our own growing family nearly 18 years ago. We feel so fortunate to share this experience with you and we take great care in making your stay comfortable, inviting and private. However, if you are expecting the Ritz versus a natural retreat, you may want to reconsider!

Guest access

A private kitchenette and W.C. (shower & toilet) in the lower level of our log home with your own private entrance is just 30 feet from the base of the treehouse (the path is lit at night). We provide fluffy towels/shampoo/conditioner/hair dryer. The kitchenette amenities include a small fridge, coffee & coffeemaker, electric water kettle for tea. There is NO stove/oven -- No cooking. We provide a light, healthy continental breakfast and a basket for transporting your breakfast up to the treehouse so you can eat at your leisure while watching the sunrise and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature from the treehouse & deck. For evening, most guests prefer to savor their time in the treehouse. Delicious locally made pizza or sandwiches/salads can be delivered right to the treehouse! We have phone numbers posted in the treehouse for your convenience. Alternatively, many diverse restaurants and amenities are a short drive away.

NOTE; Absolutely NO unauthorized guests are permitted. NO exceptions!

Interaction with guests

We respect your privacy! We will welcome you & show you the essentials --and then we will leave you to yourselves to explore and enjoy your very special time in the treehouse. However, we are only a text away should you need anything.

Other things to note

R-E-S-P-E-C-T; Must like the Beatles & Bob Marley! Must believe in a bit of magic and have a regard for trees and all living things!

This treehouse far exceeded any expectation I had prior. It was the perfect escape for a mother-daughter getaway with my pre-teen. We were in the treehouse from check in all the way until check out the following day and only left to use the bathroom or facilities when needed. This treehouse is the most charming and just simply perfect escape for anyone wanting to spend quality time with a loved one or even to get away alone to feel secluded in nature in as simply amazing atmosphere. We had Pizza my heart delivered right to the treehouse and enjoyed a little candle light dinner with the white twinkling lights turned on. We read books, played games and watched movies, all which were included in the treehouse. It was just a magical experience that I hope to be able to enjoy again in the future!

I met Doug and his daughter upon arrival. Very kind and sweet family. The tree house was filled with so much magic and charm. Would love to come back in the future. This is definitely my most memorable airbnb experience.

This may sound like hyperbole, but every foreigner of a certain generation has dreamt of staying in an American tree-house. This is THE quintessential American tree-house. Growing up in India, the notion of the tree-house was one of many things that beguiled me about America. I had a lovely stay at Doug's tree-house. The evenings and mornings are magical, as you are elevated well above ground, which gives you a superb vista, as well as a really different sort of light. In the morning, you can sense, and then see, birds stirring, whirring, flying, chirping...and expressing an interest in your breakfast! The construction is SUPERB, done with passion and sensitivity, and really impressive craftsmanship. The ladder steps up are on the steep side, but nothing a fit adult of any age can't handle (at least when relatively sober). Doug is a charming, friendly man, cosmopolitan, sensitive, industrious, and deeply caring of his environment and his family. He is also utterly non-intrusive, and respects a guest's privacy impeccably (while always being a text away in case you need anything). I would recommend this tree-house to anyone who wants a touch of gentle adventure and contact with a facet of American culture that is denied to those of us who live in teeming, crowded, an treeless cities. Literally EVERYONE I know was envious of my three nights in this tree-house.

Response from Doug:
Wow, I am humbled, deeply grateful for these well articulated comments/observations. (Hope I can live up to them!) Paticularly moving in that these come from a well-travelled, cosmopolitan, educated, mature and yet kind individual. Such a pleasure to share a few moments with Tunku.

This treehouse is clearly magical. My wife and I both reached a blissful state of peace while relaxing in that beautiful space. The breeze was perfect up in the tree. Doug was kind and helpful when we arrived. He gave us a fantastic tour and oriented us in the space.

Our family loves nature, travel and meeting people from around the world. Through Airbnb we’ve found we are connected with other travelers in a very special way.

It’s great to share a few moments with guests and to provide a unique and private accommodation for them. We also enjoy sharing our insights about the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area which we call home.

We pass along these encouraging words from Nelson Mandella, "May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears."
