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 nearly 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!

What a lovely getaway! So close to the city and amenities but far enough to way to have complete privacy. The space is very unique and there is no comparison! Would definitely return.
We had my wife's birthday celebration at this special place. I definitely think our choice was right!
The place is really a tree house, with great view & privacy. It actually creaks when the wind brows. Not scary, just feel it's real. Wifi is available up there, but better to enjoy 'off-line' here in my opinion. Basically, Doug, Linda, & house rule respects privacy fully. But if you prefer, Doug is very easy to talk & caring. And, Linda's breakfast is simple but delicious.
The treehouse was tucked away up in the hills on property that was reflective of its' creative owners. Linda met us at the base of the treehouse and immediately made us feel welcome. It was quite magical and once we were aloft it felt as if we were removed from all the cares in the world. Doug & Linda were available but not intrusive. It was the first night of a 9 day road trip with my mother and it certainly was a wonderful start.
We were thrilled with our treehouse experience. The ambiance in the treehouse was perfect for enjoying wine and cheese and spending time talking and looking over the books in the house. The breakfast was delicious, Linda is a great baker.
Wow! What an amazing, special place. It fulfilled all of our treehouse dreams. The hosts were so thoughtful and had everything perfect for our arrival. You can tell they truly love their spot and making your experience perfect.
The treehouse blew our expectations. Very comfortable and wonderful views.
If (and when) you come to the treehouse make sure you wake up for the sunrise. Absolutely incredible.
We loved our experience and will definitely be back!
Doug and Linda's treehouse is amazing! The pictures on airbnb are very accurate. Doug was great getting us settled in upon arrival; he walked us through the kitchenette, which was stocked with goodies. He even let our children pet his hens! There were so many cute touches in the treehouse. Our children enjoyed sitting in the bed and reading through the books. We enjoyed our delivered delicious pizza for dinner (thanks Doug for the recommendation!) and the yummy breakfast provided by the host. What a wonderful experience, and a perfect final stop on our summer road trip!
Doug and Linda's treehouse was a magical place! It's so very cute and Linda was great getting us settled in. The pictures on airbnb are very accurate. Upon arrival, Linda walked us through the kitchenette, which was stocked with goodies. There were so many cute touches in the treehouse. Candles and lights made it romantic and quaint. DVDs to sit back and watch movies if you wanted. We were able to sit on the wrap around deck with the view of the bay, eat our delivered delicious pizza. It was so great! We highly recommend this place!

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
