A refuge in nature

An escape from the electrical grid. There is no internet, electricity or phone service. There is minimal solar lighting, fire and propane stoves and water heaters


There is an outdoor open kitchen available for the local community as well as visitors to use, with dishes, a sink, stove, and a fire-pit with grill for cooking. There is an organic vegetable garden, goats, chickens, bees and fruit trees


Drinking water is spring fed and also available filtered. Bottled water is unnecessary


There is 1 fire-pit in the main area and a fireplace on the upper level. No personal fires (besides Tipi’s)


Structures on the land are rustic, generally lightweight and built to blend in with the natural character of the land. There are outdoor composting poopers set up with sawdust and barrels, and there is a flushing toilet with an old septic tank that is mainly used for peeing


Kids are welcome with an accompanying adult


Dogs are welcome off leash. it may be necessary to have them on leash if they attack chickens, goats, cats or other dogs. Bury dog poop with a stick or shovel or cover it with dirt and grass. Do not put a plastic bag of dog poop in the garbage


Big Sur is remote area with beautiful beaches, creeks and hiking trails throughout the forest. Some areas can be very dangerous with steep cliffs and loose rocks.  Be aware that things like spiders, snakes, raccoons, mice, poison oak, etc.. exist in natural areas like this


Enjoy the scenic Pacific Coast highway. Retreat into nature by yourself or with friends and family. Have a romantic getaway. Practice art, music and photography. Spend time to read & write and sit in meditation. Adventure along the creek, to the beach or up the mountains


No stereos or electronic music devices. Acoustic instruments are encouraged


Big Sur has a curvy mountain 2-lane Hwy. If a car wants to pass, pull over. Do not pass in double yellow. Carpool


Take away your own garbage. There is no trash service. If used properly, there is a recycling station  to sort paper, glass, metal, plastic and food-waste. Do not put unsorted bags in any bin


Alcohol is discouraged. It is not intended as a place to party or get drunk. A casual drink is okay


Donations are put back into the land. They go towards the mortgage and other resources that help to facilitate the nurturing and sharing of this sacred space


Because there is no internet on the land, Maggie helps manage reservations from off-site and does not live on the property. There is a 2 night minimum For Friday and Saturday unless booked within 10 days prior or only one night is available


Come with a certain level of independence. Hosts are not always available. This is a place to help people help themselves. If you need something, please ask. Make sure you have the arrival instructions. Arrive before dark to easily find your site and get any assistance you may need


Be prepared before leaving Monterey from the north and Morro Bay from the south with plenty of gas, a flashlight, warm clothes, groceries, wood, ice, and anything else you may want or need from town


In the wintertime, Dec-Feb, the days are shorter and it is wetter, windier and colder and there may  be unsafe road conditions. As many structures are outside it is advisable to check the weather before booking

Great spot for camping right off the California coast line. We brought our puppy who loved playing in the river right behind the tipi (nice sound to fall asleep to). The tipi itself is huge and the directions were very clear from host's directions. Convenient walking path to the rocks and water made catching the sunset easy. Will be back!

Beautiful and unique experience. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming- even inviting us to join them for dinner. The tipi is stunning as is the location. Highly recommend!

Absolutely gorgeous place to camp—photos cannot really do it justice. We loved the spacious teepee, the sounds of the creek as we slept, being in walking distance from the ocean. The entire property which includes several campsites was thoughtfully curated, private, well-outfitted and a pleasure to discover.

It was magical falling asleep in a tipi to the sound of the babbling creek. We we’re snug in our sleeping bags, and made the tipi extra cosy with our own battery powered fairy lights.

Camp kitchen.Lots of flowers and humming birds.There’s interesting things to see all over the site.Getting campfire going for making dinner in the tipi.
