Treehouse in Vineyard Overlooking Monterey Bay

Built on giant Douglas Fir trees, our treehouse is located on Lago Lomita Vineyards with a view of the entire Monterey Bay. The ladder/staircase leads to a 400 sq. ft. platform with a queen bed, electricity/WiFi in a tent! There is a full bath on the bottom floor of the main house, immediately inside the French Doors. See pics! Half hour to San Jose, 15 miles to the Capitola beach, and an hour from SFO or Monterey. Also, check out our 5 star yurt listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/19876384

What guests are saying:

“Robin was a wonderful and gracious host. She contacted us to let us know the treehouse was ready and then guided us with her on point directions to get there. When we arrived Robin gave us a tour of the property - 44 acres of lush greenery and vineyards! The site of the treehouse took our breath away. We climbed up like we were kids again. Used the pulley system to hoist up our luggage (my husband loved this!). Then got settled on the adirondack chairs, poured our wine, watched the sunset over the bay. Watched the birds up in the trees with us. And generally decompressed in this beautiful charming place. How magical it is to be up in the trees and take in the beautiful natural surroundings. And then to sleep in the trees but on a comfortable bed with nice linens and heating if we needed it. This was an experience to remember. My idea of 5 star adventure. We fell in love with this little treehouse! We will be back! ”

What guests are saying:

“This was our first stay at an AirBnB and it was great! Kevin and Linda were great hosts! They welcomed us with a smile and showed us around their beautiful home. They explained all of the amenities and how to operate everything. They introduced us to their friendly outdoor cats, Charlie and Newbie, who were also very friendly! The outdoor shower and hot tub was amazing! Even in November, it was pleasant and warm. The room was well decorated and styled like a beach house. It was warm and comfortable with a space heater for added warmth if needed. The bathroom has concrete walls with shells and sea glass set into it! Amazing! The queen size bed was very comfortable with two big pillows each and a nice warm down comforter. Outside, the outdoor kitchen and grill was perfect for cooking breakfast and dinner. They had plenty of kitchen supplies for what we needed to make our meals. We didn’t spend a lot of time there during the day because there was so much to do around the area locally. We didn’t get to do even half of all of the things we wanted so we will be going back and staying there so we can do the rest! Overall, this was an awesome place and definitely recommend staying there! We will be going back!”

Private Guest-House in the Redwoods

Private Guest-House in the Redwoods

Our custom built guesthouse was completed in 2016. It is situated on 5 redwood-covered acres, 10 minutes south of Los Gatos and 20 minutes from Santa Cruz. We have easy access to hiking and biking trails, world-class wine-tasting, microbreweries, shops, amazing dining, and more! There is something for everyone in our area! We are surrounded by a 35 acre tree farm, so it's very private, yet close to the silicon valley! Our property has a standby generator so we are not affected by power outages.

What guests are saying:

“Don’t hesitate to stay here! This perfect little house situated among these ancient and majestic trees is perfect! After a short two night stay, our kids and we were ready to move in permanently. The house is small but it doesn’t feel small at all. It is extremely comfortable and easy to live in. We were there during an historic and unusual heatwave and stayed quite comfortable! Our kids loved the little trail that wound through the trees and we all enjoyed laying in the hammock and watching to trees sway gently - they are truly magnificent. Louise and Eric were so friendly and easy-going. We hope to visit again!”
