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!

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 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. 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.

This was an incredible experience! The treehouse and the property were beautiful and Doug and Linda were amazing hosts. I would love to come back to this awesome treehouse!
The treehouse is definitely cute and lovely. I'm sure to come back again.
What an amazing little spot just a short drive from downtown San Fran! This was the culmination of an engagement vacation and the treehouse did not disappoint. Linda wasn't available when we arrived, but she made sure everything was set up upon our arrival. There were printed directions waiting for us explaining how everything worked and where everything was in the treehouse. The views from the comfy loft bed or from the chairs on the treehouse deck are fantastic!!! We had pizza delivered one of the nights straight to the treehouse which was a delight after eating out for most of our meals on vacation. The breakfast that Doug&Linda left out each morning was absolutely delicious!! One morning, we had warm mini blueberry pancakes with powdered sugar on them. Couldn't have asked for a better way to start the day! The treehouse is decorated so thoughfully with plenty of stuff to occupy your time with the books, movies, and artwork, if you're looking to just relax for couple of hours :)
We will most definitely try and stay here again if we're ever in the Bay area.
This was so much fun! My boyfriend found this wonderful treehouse back in November and it's been our goal to come since then. It did not disappoint. We had perfect weather. We ate our dinner out on the little deck and looked at the view till sunset when we moved inside and chatted till bedtime. The breakfast was nice and everything was clean and cozy. We'll definitely come again. We never actually saw our hosts, but there were notes all around with directions so everything was clear and direct.
Gorgeous tree house - really loved staying in it. Closer to property than I expected but it wasn't a problem at all - still felt private enough and had private use of kitchenette and bathroom. Linda even left us brownies and fresh water on arrival which was lovely. Took about half an hour to get to downtown San Francisco from the treehouse by car. There are lots of rules posted around the property and site but nothing that's not common sense and that most people wouldn't do anyway - all aimed at protecting the treehouse which is completely fair! Had a lovely time and leisurely breakfast on the treehouse porch. Really enjoyed the stay.
We had the most splendid stay at Doug & Linda's! I mean, what's not to love about staying in a treehouse? It's not just an ordinary treehouse though. It's cozy, full of charm, and so incredibly enchanting. Loved the sleeping loft with the incredibly comfy bed. I was concerned that we might be cold at night but this wasn't the case at all. The treehouse is actually well insulated and blankets were a plenty. They even provided a heater but we didn't need it. Loved the convenience of having electrical outlets as well. You'll feel transported to a magical little corner of the world even though it's practically in the backyard of the city. Probably one of the most unique experiences of our lives and we have Linda, Doug and their family to thank for sharing this special treat! The host were wonderfully kind and personable but also gave us our space. Oh, and those fresh chicken eggs! So good!

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
