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.
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!

We provide fluffy towels/shampoo/conditioner/hair dryer.

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.

We had a wonderful time staying in the treehouse...such a beautiful setting. We would definitely return!! I'm recommending to all of my friends.
Our stay in the tree house was everything we had hoped for, so magical, quiet, intimate and beautiful too. We were provided for perfectly by Doug, Linda and their daughter McKenzie. We had everything we needed and slept like babies in absolute heaven!
It was an unique and superb experience staying at Doug and Linda's treehouse during my trip at San Francisco.
The location is great especially for departing from SFO - only 15 mins drive to the airport. Doug and Linda also provides delicious desserts all over the stay; fresh yogurts, juice and fruits were also available for us in the fridge. The treehouse itself was such a beauty on the tree. It is such a neat, tidy, and quiet place, parking is also very easy on road-side.
I really enjoyed the stay at Doug and Linda's place, strongly recommended for any travelers who would like to experience this unique place in the world. Thanks Doug and Linda.
The place is magical... but really overpriced. Check-in is really late(4 pm) and breakfast is simple for a $275++ experience. Linda was really sweet and the house was decorated beautifully.
Linda was flexible on our check-in time and super easy to work with. She met us upon arrival, showed us around and we had a really nice (email hidden)ry warm and welcoming.
Mini brownies with cooled water were waiting for us up in the treehouse upon arrival! Such a hospitable touch. :)
The treehouse itself is quaint and perfect...a truly unique experience! It does have electricity, wifi and a TV with a DVD selection, but no A/C (however, heater and fan provided). And doors don't lock, but do close...definitely feels plenty secluded and safe. Our evening was unusually warm based on the norm for the area, but Linda offered us a lighter sheet for the night and we were more than comfortable.
Kitchenette and bathroom are just a short walkway away...not an inconvenience.
Private space in a safe suburb area, up in the hilly Silicon Valley - amazing views of the bay and planes coming in...wish we would've had more time to just sit and enjoy the deck. Gorgeous trees and greens filling the property. Parking was close by and easily accessible. We packed carry-ons (which I would highly recommend) based on the stairway leading up to the landing where treehouse sits. It would be a challenge with large luggage!
We ordered pizza from Village Hosts (thick crust - mmm yum!) and had it delivered to the treehouse - delivery guy even came up the ladder! Fun touch to the childhood experience of staying in a treehouse.
Linda left a light breakfast for us in the kitchenette area - hard boiled eggs, strawberries, lemon and banana nut bread...delicious. She left a little white basket for us to fill with the breakfast treats to take up to the treehouse...what a great setup!
The Studebakers are fantastic top shelf high class Airbnb hosts! Truly A++. Creative and free spirited...I really enjoyed getting to know Linda. Highly recommend the treehouse for anyone seeking adventure and a one-of-a-kind experience.
Thank you, Linda! It was such a joy meeting you and hope to see you again soon. :)
书屋里点缀着素净的鲜花, 烛光, 浅色的窗帘,温馨的床单和两本可爱的留言簿. 这真的是一个可爱,温馨,浪漫的小屋. Linda跟我们一起聊起了Doug是如何一点一点地用两年的时间建好了这个小屋,孩子们是如何在这里开Party,夜晚看星星,半夜听小松鼠从屋顶匆匆跑过的脚步声.为了照顾好这棵橡树,每年Doug还需要调整一下小屋,让橡树可以自由的生长. 小屋的成长,橡树的成长伴随着三个孩子的成长.这些都是多么美好的记忆.
树下的秋千是两个小朋友的最爱. Linda 准备了自家的鸡下的鸡蛋,面包,果汁,奶.我们把早餐搬到了树下的石凳上,早上的阳光透过树叶的缝隙落到地上布满的树叶上,也洒在了我们的身上.两个儿子轮流坐在秋千上,一边悠闲的荡着,一边啃着面包,笑声布满了树下的每个角落. 一切都太美好了.
这是这一趟旅行里孩子们最爱的一个安排,可惜只有一晚的时间. 真的非常感谢Doug and Linda 愿意把他们对孩子们的爱跟大家分享. 孩子们还没离开就已经开始不舍和想念了. Thanks. 希望以后还有机会再来.
We had a good stay in the treehouse. The host made us feel very welcome by providing all of information we needed to know before we arrived. The treehouse is even better than it looks in the photo and it has everything you need. We especially love the deco of the treehouse, letting you return to the magic world of your childhood.
Very recommended, without a doubt! Thanks for the hospitality!

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
