welcome to treehouse.
Yi Fu Tuan said, “Place is security and Space is Freedom”. Treehouse blends the two, offering a place that is warm, inviting, diverse and inclusive, with the freedom of space, space to explore, space to reflect, space to create, space to connect.

what is co-living?
how much is rent?
We have four different kinds of units at Treehouse Hollywood:
Maple – Studio with a queen bed and private patio. Base rent starts at $2,789.
Redwood – Flat with a queen bed, extra large windows, more storage space, and often a balcony. Includes a private bathroom, extensive sound proofing, and an individual thermostat. Kitchen shared with a few flatmates. Base rent starts at $1,975.
Cedar – Flat with a full bed on a higher floor. Includes a private bathroom, extensive sound proofing, and an individual thermostat. Kitchen shared with a few flatmates. Base rent starts at $1,812.
Oak – Flat with a full bed on a lower floor. Includes a private bathroom, extensive sound proofing, and an individual thermostat. Kitchen shared with a few flatmates. Base rent starts at $1,715.
In addition to the base rent, the rent at Treehouse also includes a $210 per-person monthly community fee which covers all utilities, WiFi, furniture, dinner every Sunday, and events. Please see the <a href=”/about/”>about page</a> or the community fee FAQ for more info.
how does the community fee work?
The community fee is part of the rent and is set to match what most individuals spend on utilities, WiFi, and furniture in a traditional apartment each month, but offers residents much more. The community fee also covers dinner every Sunday, free yoga, speaker series, and other events to bring the community together. Each person more than five years old needs to pay the $210 community fee each month. See the about page for more info on what’s included at Treehouse.
how much is the security deposit?
One month’s rent on approved credit. We also give residents the option to purchase security deposit insurance through Jetty instead, which is significantly less money up front (typically 20% of the security deposit amount) but is non-refundable. Apply now.
