About this listing
Private room set in the hills of a wonderful, airy, light modern home. Views of trees from every room. The room has it's own private patio and a separate bathroom w/ soaking bathtub. Includes breakfast. A restful retreat with very peaceful energy.
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 makings for a yummy breakfast. If our timings coincide I am happy to cook up made-to-order eggs and toast. Or you can help yourself to the same or bagels and cream cheese, accompanied by coffee/tea and O.J.
- Free high-speed WiFi
- Cable (including HBO and Showtime).
- Boogie Boards: There are a couple of boogie boards you can borrow for the beach.
- Fresh towels and sheets are provided for all guests.
- Iron and Ironing Board available
You are welcome to use the kitchen when staying at the Ensenada Treehouse. However, please be responsible for your own dishes and keeping the common areas neat and clean.
This was my second time staying at Sheena's place. As before, it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Sheena was responsive and helpful as a host.
Sheena was very welcoming and considerate.I could not have hoped for a more suitable or pleasant place to stay for three weeks in this part of LA. The area is very quiet and attractive for walking. Also it is just a short drive to shops and restaurants.The house is gorgeous ,very clean and has a restful ambience. Thank you so much Sheena. :)
We came to L.A on business and decided to extend our stay for the weekend. Sheena's home was very conveniently located, about 1 hour from the airport, depending on traffic. Just south of her place was the beautiful Topanga mountains then the ocean 30 min. away.
Sheena was very flexible on our arrival time. She made us feel so very welcome in her home, offering us wine on the first night, then providing a great breakfast both mornings! The wifi worked well for my husband to get some work done. I got to enjoy the view of her deck overseeing the hills and homes on a quiet evening while catching up on some reading. The house was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Woodland Hills offers a variety of restaurants and convenient stores like Whole Foods. We would definitely recommend this place, and Sheena was a wonderful host.
Thanks for the wonderful review, Annie-Claude. I really enjoyed hosting you and David. I particularly enjoyed our conversations over breakfast and through the day. As well as how thoughtful and communicative you were with any change in plans. You are both welcome back any time!
This was my first experience renting on AirBnB and it couldn't have been better! Sheena was a warm and welcoming host and her gorgeous home is even better in person. It was impeccably kept and decorated and was the perfect place to get away and have some quiet time in the beautiful hills of the Topanga area.
Sheena recommended an urban hike on Mullholland Drive which had panoramic views of the valley as well as a drive down the Canyon Road to the beach. For the times I wanted to get to town it was a 10 minute drive to all of the shops and movie theaters. That said, some days I didn't even leave the house because it was such an inviting retreat space.
Sheena was wonderful to talk to, and we shared lovely conversations over delicious breakfast that she cooked for me. I couldn't have asked for a better host! I would recommend her treehouse home to anyone looking for a getaway of their own.
I had a wonderful stay at Sheena's Treehouse. The house was as beautiful as pictured, stylish, and super-clean. Sheena was a fantastic, warm, and interesting host. We had a great conversation and she made a fantastic scrambled egg and coffee for me. The location is in a peaceful natural area that's still close to business in Woodland Hills.
Sheena is a fantastic hostess. Her treehouse is welcoming, immaculately clean & relaxing. The bedroom has a private little deck that looks out on the trees & hilltops - make time for staring at the stars - it's worth it, promise! The closet was generous & the fan, AC & lights provided the right temperature & amount of light.
The bathroom was spotless & large enough for 2 people to comfortably share counter space.
Sheena made a delicious breakfast & allowed us to use the kitchen. The deck off of the kitchen is the perfect place to wake up & nurse a cup of coffee or tea.
Parking was right next to the house in a quiet neighborhood that felt both safe & away from the business of downtown; just what we were looking for. It's a short drive for groceries & anything else you might need.
Sheena is a gracious host & our only regret is that we had to leave so soon.
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.

About the Host, Sheena
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 also love boogie boarding at the beach, which is a scenic 22 minute drive through magical and green Topanga Canyon. 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 very lucky to live here as well as share it with people.
