Our little treehouse is the best of both worlds… perched above it all in a quiet, urban forested canyon close to glorious San Francisco, 10 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes to Silicon Valley to the South and Half Moon Bay to the West--

A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.
Come have a magical stay. Be open to re-discovering the child within!
Suitable for candle-light dinners, relaxing, rejuvenating & simply enjoying the sights and sounds of nature! Enjoy the sunset with a view of the San Francisco Bay while sipping wine on the wrap-around deck. Fluffy down comforters/pillows and passive, eco-friendly heating to keep you warm and toasty. There is a comfy queen size bed in the sleeping loft and a lower level daybed/reading nook. Serenity for 1, ideal for 2.
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 just for the two of you. The treehouse is not suitable for 2 couples or 4 adults (too cozy)
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!
A private shower and kitchenette dedicated to our Treehouse guests is located a short 30 steps from the base of the treehouse-located in the lower level of our log home (path is lit at night). We provide fluffy towels & shampoo/conditioner/hair dryer. The kitchenette amenities include a small fridge (stocked with some breakfast items, including fresh, organic hard boiled eggs from our very own chickens), coffee & coffeemaker, electric water kettle for tea and a small microwave. We even provide a basket for transporting your breakfast up to the treehouse so you can eat your breakfast 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 for your convenience.

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

Doug and Linda were absolutely fantastic and it showed in everything they did with this treehouse! We arrived to a warm welcome and even some snacks already prepared for us! The house was comfortable and had an amazing view of the bay! Between quilts, slippers, books and even a little heater we had all the comforts we needed to enjoy a beautiful night in the sky. The fresh eggs from their chickens in the morning were a fantastic touch as well! They truly thought of everything and I would recommend this rental to anyone!!!
We had a beautiful and surreal experience staying the night in this outstanding treehouse. Doug and Linda are clearly incredible, thoughtful people. I would love to return!
One word. Magical. We felt like kids again. Doug and Linda are such amazing, hospitable people and we couldn't have had a better stay.
What an amazing place, on an incredible property, in a beautiful neighborhood! We spent the last night of a west coast vacation in this awesome treehouse, and it couldn't have been a better experience. The wind blew and the tree creaked, but it was warm and cozy inside and we had a wonderful time. We had an early flight out of SFO (which is about a 7 minute drive from the treehouse) and weren't able to enjoy breakfast, but did take in a beautiful sunrise before heading out. I'll never forget this place, and with luck, we'll make it back here someday.
Our time at the treehouse was magical. Doug and Linda made it extra special for my fiancé's birthday. We spent the whole night in and around the treehouse, and even ordered pizza straight to our front ladder. You can't ask for better hosts or a more Airbnb-esq experience.
Doug and Linda were awesome hosts. The treehouse was even better than we imagined!

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 for our own children 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
