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. We invite you to come share the magic! Doug and Linda
