A gorgeous restful retreat in a modern-style high-ceiling home surrounded by trees as far as the eye can see. Enjoy an open floor plan, moon patio & chef's kitchen in a 3 bdrm home tucked in the hills. With easy access to amenities & the beach.

The space

Enjoy 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. 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.

Rooms: The bedrooms are all on the lower level.The Master Bedroom (red wall in pics) is large and majestic, with a tree-top view from its window. It has a KING bed and an attached bathroom. The Guest Bedroom (mango accent wall in the pictures) has its own small deck and private entrance. The guest room has a QUEEN bed, dresser, closet and TV. The Study (the room with the blue wall in the pictures) has a DOUBLE futon bed. The Guest Room and Study have access to the second full bathroom, which sports a soaking tub. There is also additional sleeping space in the home - the couch in the Living Room opens out into a queen size bed.

Location! Location! Location! Close to legendary Topanga Canyon, with easy access to the beach, and Malibu, the home would be a great writer's retreat, as it is secluded, with a patio that offers a refreshing treetop view. It 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.

- Free high-speed WiFi
- Cable (including HBO and Showtime).
- Boogie Boards: There are also a couple of boogie boards you can borrow for the beach.
- Fresh towels and sheets are provided for all guests.

Lived in: I should add that this is a house I live in much of the time. I travel a lot and have other flexibility, so if it shows available on the calendar, it IS available. But unlike other rental properties that are de-personalized and just kept aside for rent - this one will have the lived in, albeit a very neat and immaculate feel. Meaning, there are pictures on the wall, books on the bookshelves, condiments in the fridge, etc. Guests usually find it easier as they don't have to buy things like sugar/ salt and pepper/ ketchup/olive oil just for a short trip. You also get to enjoy a kitchen with high end appliances, many All-Clad/Calphalon pans with mostly Crate-and-Barrel or West Elm cutlery and crockery.

Please note: The home is in the hills. So you definitely need your own car. This is an LGBTQ-friendly space. This home is NOT childproof. So if you have young children, this may not be the best choice.

I like to rent the home for 3 nights and above.

Interaction with guests

If I am in town, I usually try and check in guests personally.

I am always available by phone/text or email.

Other than stopping by to pick up mail or water plants (outside) during a longer stay, I respect the guests privacy and only show up if they have any questions or issues.

Other things to note

Please Note: The home is NOT AVAILABLE for long term rentals. This is my primary residence, so I am not able to accommodate families who are looking to rent it for 2-3 months.

This is a beautiful, relaxing home and we enjoyed staying here with our two adult children. We were able to hike in beautiful Topanga Canyon, enjoy the beaches of Malibu, and take in some LA sightseeing, always with a peaceful and clean place to come back to. There are no doubt places closer into the city if you plan to mostly visit LA but this is a great spot if you want to be accessible to the city but also seek a calm, very clean respite with a great kitchen, and peaceful feel.

Lovely home with three bedrooms plus couch in living room. Very quiet location but out of the way i.e. Several miles to get even near a commercial street. so for a family you will do best with two cars as you can't walk to get anywhere.

Response from Sheena:
I'm glad you enjoyed the space and the quiet, Captain. The house is in the hills - which makes for wonderful walks/hiking and lots of green space. I would correct the "several miles" aspect of the review, because all the grocery stores, cafes, restaurants are a 5-6 minute car ride away (which is 1.3 miles to be accurate) and the mall and movie theaters are more like 8-9 mins away. So as I state in my listing, you definitely need a car to be here. But stores (Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joe's) are a short drive down the hill.

Absolutely cannot recommend Sheena's treehouse enough. Our family had the most delightful time in her spotless, well-equipped, comfortable, elegant home. Sheena was the perfect host and was communicative with details that made our stay very easy and comfortable.

Sheena was great. This was my first experience where somebody greeted me in person. She was welcoming and showed me around the house and showed me where everything was at including all the beds towels and instruction manuals are. Previously I'd have to figure out all this stuff on my own, not that it's hard but it's nice to know that someone cares. The place accurately represented the photos and was extremely clean comma fairly close to everything you could possibly need including the freeway.

The tree house is a fabulous place to stay and provides a relaxing environment with a great combination of feeling away from it all as well as being close to restaurants and shopping for convenience. We were met by Sheena who provided a great introduction to the property as well as detailed written information. I would certainly recommend Sheena and her wonderful house. The facilities are excellent and as described in the listing summary.

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.
