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, reflecting, rejuvenating & simply enjoying the sights and sounds of nature! Enjoy the sunset with a beautiful view of the San Francisco Bay while sipping wine on the wrap-around deck. Fluffy down comforters/pillows and passive, eco-friendly heating will keep you warm and cozy. There is a comfy queen size bed w/crisp linens in the sleeping loft and a lower level daybed/reading nook. Serenity for 1, ideal for 2.
The Treehouse is a very special retreat best suited for individuals & couples. 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 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.
Remember, this is a TREEHOUSE, a wee house in our big 150 year old oak tree - we 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, just a few steps from the base of the treehouse, is located in the lower level of our log home (with your own private entrance. ) The path is lit at night. We provide fluffy towels/shampoo/conditioner/hair dryer. The kitchenette amenities include a small fridge (stocked with delicious breakfast items), coffee & coffeemaker, electric water kettle for tea. 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.
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.
The treehouse is on our very private, wooded hillside property, which is located on a cul-de-sac. Parking for 1 car is dedicated for our treehouse guests.
We are a quick 15-20 minute drive to beautiful San Francisco, 8 minutes from the San Francisco Airport and 5 minutes from the CalTrain/BART station. The gorgeous Pacific Ocean and Coastline is a beautiful 20 minute drive from the treehouse and the Silicon Valley is an easy, 20 minute scenic commute to the south. Close by, the picturesque town of Burlingame is 2 miles away and has wonderful shopping and unique restaurants!

When I found out there was a treehouse where I could stay the night just 30 minutes outside of San Francisco, I knew I had to make a childhood dream a reality. Doug and Linda's treehouse won't disappoint -- as long as you realize you're totally staying in a treehouse. It's very cozy, but still manages to have two outdoor seating areas (one which has a view of the bay), a little table with two chairs inside, a couch/bed to lounge on inside AND a bed in the loft. And I can't leave out the swing at the foot of the tree!
Doug and Linda were out when we arrived, but they left a note explaining everything we needed to know and their daughter was there to show us around. Even though the treehouse is very much in their front yard, it still felt private, especially once the sun went down.
We couldn't resist having pizza delivered (the guy climbed the ladder and literally brought it to our door) as who doesn't want to say they had pizza delivered to their treehouse?!
Overall, it was a lovely experience -- clean linens, a bathroom/shower/kitchenette steps from the treehouse, and an experience that felt like a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
This was a wonderful place to stay! Thank you to Doug and Linda - the treehouse was charming, the light breakfast that you put out every morning (fresh eggs, fruits, scones, etc) was wonderful, and it was so nice to wake up amongst the branches and leaves in the morning. We also went to the nearby trails for some great hiking. Thanks again!
This treehouse is absolutely amazing. We would highly recommend it to anyone else in the area. We were sadly only there for one night but we had a really lovely time. We were in need of some downtime and it fit the bill perfectly. Looks exactly as the pictures show and many nice touches from the hosts (even though we didn't properly meet them). The bed is comfy. The treehouse is warm and the lighting is good. Really really cool build!
We had a memorable 'back to nature' experience and enjoyed staying at the magical tree house. Communication with the hosts was easy via text messages.
Linda is a certainly friendly and good person. Did not get a chance to visit Doug, though. It felt like the most quiet neighborhood in California and 100% safe though there is no lock for the tree house.

About the Host, Doug & Linda
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
