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.

The space

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!

Guest access

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!

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.

Other things to note

R-E-S-P-E-C-T; Must like the Beatles & Bob Marley! Must believe in a bit of magic and have a regard for trees and all living things!

You will love staying in this story book tree house! Doug and Linda have provided a wonderful get away tucked into a quiet lot in Burlingame, close to S.F. Easy access from San Francisco, the airport and near by cities. They provided every amenity I could need. I cannot think of better hosts. They truly are super hosts! Book ASAP for a wonderful life experience. You won't regret it. Doug & Linda’s tree house truly moved us :) To live the life we imagine!

The view of the Bay was amazing. The environment was peaceful even with our two teenagers, and our host was friendly and hospitable. A night in a treehouse was a great way to begin our adventure in California.

Wonderful experience. Doug was an amazing host and the treehouse was so cool. The pictures just don't tell the whole story. You have to see it to believe it. An experience we will never forget. An awesome way to celebrate our anniversary.

This is truly a magical experience. Every detail is accounted for from the brownies upon arrival to the lids for the coffee cups to transport to the treehouse. It is a special place for anyone, whether you are solo or coupled, and the view is incredible! One tip is to bring a small bag with your essentials if this isn't your only stop for your CA visit. There are lots of stairs and ladders up to the treehouse. Doug was so kind and helped me out, but pack smart if you are able. Thank you so much, Doug!

Spent the night at this lovely treehouse for our anniversary. Much better than what I had expected. The treehouse was so cute, cozy and just amazing. What a wonderful experience! Wished we would have stayed one more night. We will definitely come here again! Thank you Doug!

Our family loves nature, travel and meeting people from around the world. Through Airbnb we’ve found we are connected with other travelers in a very special way.

It’s great to share a few moments with guests and to provide a unique and private accommodation for them. We also enjoy sharing our insights about the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area which we call home.

We pass along these encouraging words from Nelson Mandella, "May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears."

Mackenzie, Chloe and Doug
