Our little treehouse is the best of both worlds… perched above it all in a quiet, urban forested canyon close to glorious San Francisco, 10 minutes from SFO, 20 minutes to Silicon Valley to the South and Half Moon Bay to the East--

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, rejuvenating & simply enjoying the sights and sounds of nature! Enjoy the sunset with a view of the San Francisco Bay while sipping wine on the wrap-around deck. Fluffy down comforters/pillows and passive, eco-friendly heating to keep you warm and toasty. There is a comfy queen size bed in the sleeping loft and a lower level daybed. Serenity for 1, ideal for 2.
The Treehouse is a very special retreat meant for individuals & couples--and, occasionally, a small family with school age children. 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 full 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. The treehouse is not suitable for 2 couples or 4 adults (too cozy)
Remember, this is a TREEHOUSE, a wee house in a tree - 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 is located a short 30 steps (at night, the path is lit) from the base of the treehouse-located in the lower level of our log home. We provide fluffy towels & shampoo/conditioner. The kitchenette amenities include a small fridge, coffeemaker, electric water kettle, tea, small microwave, , hot-plate, table & 2 chairs, sink -- for evening, most guests prefer to savor their time in the treehouse rather than spending time cooking. Delicious locally made pizza or sandwiches/salads can be delivered right to the treehouse! We have phone numbers posted for your convenience.
A light, continental style breakfast is placed on the kitchenette table at 8 a.m. for you to enjoy at your leisure…we even provide a basket for transporting your breakfast up to the treehouse so you can enjoy breakfast while watching the sunrise and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature from the treehouse & deck. The treehouse is on our very private, wooded property, which is located on a private cul-de-sac. Parking for 1 car is dedicated for our treehouse guests.

My only concern about this experience is that I may not be able to ever top this experience. My sister and I surprised my 7-year-old niece for her birthday. She didn't know until right when we met with Doug, warmly greeting us just below treehouse. There is a lot of magic in this treehouse. I felt like a kid again. This place is kindly tucked in the trees above Burlingame with amazing views of the bay. We watched as planes landed and took off in the distance from SFO. We fell asleep after watching "Big" on the tv, a childhood favorite movie of mine. I feel blessed to have created wonderful memories for myself and my sister and niece here. My sister and niece raved about the organic hardboiled eggs the next morning. I loved the muffins and orange juice left out for us.
Doug and Linda are fabulous.
We had a great time! Thank you for sharing the space with us! Linda and her daughter were kind and responsive and welcoming and let us have our space too :)
My family and I had a fabulous time staying in the Tree House. My 7 year old daughter is a big fan of Mary Pope Osborne's popular children's series “The Magic Treehouse,” so she loved the experience. My wife thought it was a dream. Doug took good care of us, and even their daughter was a delight to meet and chat with. Highly recommended!
Our two-night stay in the Treehouse above San Francisco Bay was extraordinary. The treehouse, lovingly created by our hosts, was charming, very secure in the tree, and gave us the feeling of being "worlds away" from it all. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and attended to us with good food, friendliness, and respect for our privacy. We sat out on the deck each night and enjoyed a spectacular view of the Bay and calming stillness. The quiet neighborhood dotted with lots of trees and greenery made us feel like we were the only ones there. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone!

This was my first experience staying in a tree house and couldn't have asked for a better intro. Doug & Linda were great hosts and made sure we knew where everything was located on the property and how everything worked. The tree house was perfectly sized and fitted with some cool light fixtures. Such a great place to stay and get away from the usual form of vacation accommodations.
It's really a dream house. Cute and America, just like in a cartoon. Both of Linda & Doug are so kind and nice! Very recommend to sleep on the tree to catch the dream!

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
