About this listing
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.
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!
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!

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.
