Overview

Sunol Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Cabin in the Woods

Slip back in time and relax amongst the rustic setting and the 200 year old live oak trees. Isolate yourself from the world and escape. Listen to the rushing waters of the creek or chirping crickets while partaking in the gorgeous wine barrel hot tub. Read a book while the smell of redwood plank walls surround you. Sit on the deck with some wine and cheese and listen to the birds and breathe the fresh air scented with nature. Curl up in the quiet sitting room with a novel or sprawl out on the inviting king size bed in the cozy and quiet solitude of the master bedroom.

Don't let its rustic charm let you think that you are in a shack and totally off the grid. The 2,000 Sq Ft. Treehouse includes satellite TV with premium channels, high speed internet (wired and Wi-Fi), large modern gourmet kitchen with a Wolf gas range and upgraded appliances, a wine barrel hot tub and a full luxury bathroom with large walk-in shower.

If you want to stay close, the town of Sunol has Bosco's Bones and Brew, a restaurant and saloon featuring 'Bosco', the famous dog mayor of Sunol, plumbed, mounted on the bar and serving Bosco's Brew in only the way a dog can. On the way, stop at Elliston Vineyards and sample some of their award winning wines. On the weekends, partake in breakfast or lunch at Sunol Railroad Cafe' or catch a steam or diesel locomotive from the Sunol train depot into the historic town of Niles to explore the silent film era. Hiking and bike trails are minutes away in the Sunol and Pleasanton Ridge Regional Wildernesses.

You will most certainly see deer and turkey on the 2.9 mile drive to the Treehouse. The road literally forces you to relax and unwind as you drive under the canopy of trees...all fitting for when you walk in the front door at the end of the day.

About Richard and Janet

We were both born in the San Francisco Bay Area - less than 20 miles from the Treehouse. We have always appreciated the deversity, culture and variety the San Francisco Bay Area offers. Although there is a multitude of activities and things to do in the metro area, the cabin provides us an escape from the normal 'rat race'.

Richard and Janet purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Richard and Janet chose Sunol

Sunol is a unique town. Steeped in history, the town was once a stop on the famed Transcontinental Railroad. Although the tracks have been decomissioned from freight use, the station and tracks are used for weekend public train rides between Sunol and the old silent movie town of Niles. The town became famous in the early 80's by electing a dog as 'mayor' - not once, but TWICE.

What makes this cabin unique

Feel like you are camping in the woods...while living in luxury. Isolated enough that you can decompress...but close enough to be in Silicon Valley or San Jose airport in 30 minutes or less. Stoneridge Shopping Center is 15 minutes away. Paragon Outlet Mall is 20 minutes away. 2 golf courses within 10 minutes. Hiking is literally in your back yard. Two (Fremont or Pleasanton/Dublin) Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations are 20 minutes away and can get you to downtown San Francisco in 45 minutes.

One of the best vacation rentals ever!

  • 5 of 5
We often use VRBO to find vacation homes whenever we travel and we really hit the jackpot this time. This property is absolutely fabulous. Snugly nestled in a hillside, we saw wildlife such as deer and wild turkeys daily on the path into the town. The house is just as advertised: comfortable, well appointed and just perfect for our family of four. We really appreciated the fact that the owner Richard had provided us with the basics such as oil, sugar, etc. plus extras such as pancake mix, ramen noodles, etc. It really made everything easier especially on the day of arrival. We took advantage of the surroundings and went for a four hour hike. The house is also a convenient base to go into San Francisco or surrounding communities, as it is close to highways. We had a great time.

Although we did not have any pets with us, there are dog toys in the living room and doggie treats in the cupboard. Very thoughtful.

I was so impressed with all the amenities that Richard and his wife provided for us, we were told to help our selves to anything in the house I recommend stayinghere and enjoy the peace and quiet and if you enjoy walking or biking or hiking this is a great place for it. Thanks again!!!

Peace and quiet in the woods

  • 5 of 5
The Treehouse provided a wonderful place for our group to stay for a friends wedding in Sunol. It is a delightfully well appointed property and the introduction and service provided by Richard was top notch. We arrived on a Thursday and stayed through a weekend and my biggest regret was not having more time to enjoy the house and it's surrounding area. Members of our group hiked up the ridge, took day-trips into San Francisco, and lounged on the fabulous deck.

I would definitely recommend the Sunol Treehouse as a romantic getaway or for groups. It has something for everyone.

Perfect Bay Area GetAway

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is secluded and quiet -- a few miles access, to be sure, but a welcome escape from the traffic and crowds of the Bay Area. The site is a well-shaded canyon with good food, restaurants and shopping about 8-10 miles away. The facilities comprise a older cabin that has been very well modernized, including appliances, beds, etc., so that one instantaneously feels at home. Many of the small cooking ingredients, spices, flour, crackers, etc., are there to be used as part of the owner's larder. As a VRBO, it is highly recommended.

Great for a small team retreat

  • 5 of 5
I took a team of 8 (including myself) and this place worked great. The owners were super friendly, walking me through to make sure I knew how to use everything, where the switches were, etc. They did everything they could to make us feel at home, so we could enjoy ourselves. The deck is awesome, the area is gorgeous, the kitchen is sweet...a great place.

Relaxing Retreat in the Trees

  • 5 of 5
The Treehouse is the hidden jewel of Sunol!
When we arrived Richard was waiting to give us a tour to go over everything, and tell us a little bit about the history of the house and the surrounding area which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was a beautiful property and just perfect for our group. We were hosting a mini-reunion/ retreat and we we all fit very comfortably and could spend time together; whether we were outside sunbathing on the beautiful deck, relaxing in the wine barrel Jacuzzi, talking a bike ride on a nature trail, or cooking together in the kitchen. We especially loved the modern touches such as the kitchen appliances and the downstairs bathroom with its rain shower head.

The area nearby had a great restaurant that Richard recommended to us. There were towns nearby with fun places to walk around, grab ice cream, and just be a tourist for a day. In short, a great place to stay, you won't want to leave it! Clean, well maintained, and tranquil. Also a fantastic price! You can tell that the owners really care about you enjoying your stay there.

Many thanks to Richard for creating a beautiful place to get away and relax!
