A room in a wonderful airy light modern space. Set in the hills. Views of trees from every room. A restful retreat with very peaceful energy.

The Space

On offer is a furnished room in a spacious, secluded "treehouse" South of the Blvd. in Woodland Hills, CA ((the Woodland Hills/Warner Center neighborhood). We call it the "treehouse" because of its beautiful view of trees from every window (Please note: It's NOT actually built on a tree. It is built into the hillside and surrounded by trees).

The home combines the best of a comfy, modern interior with a rustic setting in the hills offering fabulous tree views from every room. It has sweeping high ceilings, and a modern deco style. This home has three bedrooms, 2.5 baths for a total of 2000 sq. ft. It boasts an open floor plan and has been recently remodeled, with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a "real" wood-burning fireplace and wood floors throughout. The bedrooms are all on the lower level. There is a massage chair in the Living Room for your relaxation. The patio on the main floor has a grill, and is a favorite morning coffee spot, or dining-by-moonlight space as you gaze out at the trees and stars.

The guest bedroom has its own small deck and entrance. The room has a QUEEN Bed, dresser, closet and TV. There is a private bathroom right next to the room for your exclusive use. There is another room available (the Study - the room with the blue wall in the pictures) for an additional $20 fee per night.

Location! Location! Location! Close to legendary Topanga Canyon, and with easy access to the beach, and Malibu, the home would be a great writer's retreat. It is secluded, with a patio that offers a refreshing treetop view. The "treehouse" is tucked away in the hills for complete privacy. And yet it is just 5 minutes to Ventura Blvd - where Whole Foods, Sprouts and Trader Joe's lie within a couple of blocks in either direction. Ventura also has a lot of restaurants and cafes and the movie theater is just another 5 minutes north. Warner Center is 7-8 mins away. If you go 5 mins west from the "treehouse," you reach Topanga Cyn Road which leads to nearby trails, hikes and State Parks. And if it is the ocean you seek, then a scenic drive through Topanga Cyn will have you there in 22 mins from the house.

Please note: The home is in the hills. So you definitely need your own car. This is an LGBTQ-friendly space. The price includes a yummy breakfast of made-to-order eggs and toast, or bagels and cream cheese, accompanied by coffee/tea and O.J.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Sheena's place. The home is gorgeous and has wonderful views of the hills. The room we stayed in also had a small private patio, which was great. It was a very peaceful setting, nestled in the hills. It's a short (and scenic!) drive through Topanga canyon to get to the coast.

    Sheena was very accommodating to our needs and was able to provide great suggestions for the area. She even made a delicious breakfast for us!

    Overall, I'd highly recommend that you stay at Sheena's place if you're in the area. Sheena is a great host, and the location is quite nice.

  • If you are new to this place, there's one thing you need to know first: the pictures look edited and professionally done, but they are 100% accurate. The home is VERY clean, and modern. A few details which I appreciated: the bed we stayed in is comfortable - I think the mattress is memory foam; the bathroom is spick and span, and modern as well; despite the absence of a host, Sheen leaves a handbook that is clear and informative; it is not a very populated area, and it is pretty quiet, but still near common thoroughfares of LA; Sheena responds promptly and is very accommodating. Overall, the house is perfect for a small group and the experience is way above expectation.

  • Although Sheena was not there when we stayed at her place, we had a great time. The treehouse was very peaceful and we felt right at home there. I would highly recommend Sheena and the Treehouse to anyone looking to stay in Woodland Hills! (P.S. the Santa Monica mountains are just round the corner, which was our favorite part of L.A that we saw)

  • Sheena's house is gorgeous and lovely. The view is beautiful from the deck. The location is ideal, quiet but close to Warner Center.

    Thank you Sheena for being a great hostess. You are super sweet and nice. I felt like it was just like staying at my friends place. I know I will be coming back.

  • Sheena has a beautiful and welcoming home. She's very accommodating and great host. I definitely recommend if you're looking for a relaxing and calm place to stay near LA.

  • Both Sheena and her lovely home are a delight in every way. She was super accommodating about a last minute booking and I really enjoyed my two days in her home. The place is just a couple of minutes down the hill to Woodland Hills and Ventura Blvd. and all that's there, but it's nestled up in a hill that makes one feel a world away from all that. The room and bathroom were impeccable and Sheena herself was both gracious and super interesting to get to know. I can't imagine staying anywhere else should I return to the US and need a place in The Valley.

  • Sheena went out on a limb and rented her entire house to accommodate my family of 6 which worked out perfectly for us . The house is very spacious, has modern updates throughout, and located in a peaceful setting in the hills. The view from the deck is awesome at any time of the day or night making it the perfect spot to relax and take in the California air. Sheena was a great host, responsive and thoughtful of our needs. Thanks Sheena!

  • Beautiful accommodations. Gracious host. Interesting and thought-provaking conversation. It was very quiet, and the view of trees was very restful.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed with Sheena earlier this week and had a wonderful stay! Not only is her house immaculate and gorgeous inside and out, Sheena is a welcoming host and a great person to get to know. To top it all off, she's a great cook and whipped up a delicious breakfast in the morning. The house is large enough to enjoy privacy, while still feeling very much like a home. A car is definitely needed to reach her house, but all the basic necessities - Trader Joe's, Target - are a five minute drive.

  • My elderly father and I stayed in this gorgeous modern home for three nights. Our host was warm and engaging, and made us feel like this was our home too. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were spacious and bathed in natural light. The setting is gorgeous, surrounded by trees and not crowded in by other homes.
    It cost just a fraction of what we would have spent at a much less personal hotel. I love the night sky, and how amazed i was that we could actually see the stars from her deck, as the house is in the Woodland Hills, with far less light pollution than most L.A. locations.
    I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants to feel like they belong somewhere while visiting this massive city. And it's just a short drive down Topanga Canyon Road to ocean beaches, yet minutes from modern urban life. A fabulous place to stay!

I am a professor at a nearby university. I love living in the "treehouse" because it is peaceful and a lovely space in which to write, read and research. I enjoy hosting, as a way to share this beautiful space with people. My energy is calm and easy-going. I strive to balance being welcoming and warm to guests, but also respectful of the guest's privacy while they are here. The treehouse has great energy. I feel lucky to live here as well as share it with people.
