In the center of the California coast
Where the mountains meet the sea
A refuge in nature
Beside the flowing creek
A Home with Family, Friends, and Animals
Striving to create a minimal impact, with a respect and awareness of this wild and natural part of the central California coast. Practicing simple eco-sustainable and environmentally friendly living techniques.
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 to use for the local community and visitors, 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.
No personal fires (besides Tipi’s). There are two communal fire-pits, one in the main area and an outdoor fireplace on the second level.
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, unless 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.
This is a 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.
Carpool. This is a busy, curvy mountain 2-lane Hwy. If a car wants to pass, pull over.
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.
All contributions are put back into the land, helping to facilitate the nurturing and sharing of this sacred space.
Because there is no internet or phone 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.
Arrive before dark. Dogs my bark, but are friendly. You are welcome to check-in with hosts and get any assistance you may need, but they are not always available. Make sure you read the Written Directions and Manual and have them saved, as there is no reception on the coast.
Be prepared before leaving Monterey from the north and Morro Bay from the south with plenty of gas, a light, 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!
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.
Stayed in the moon and stars tipi for a weekend with a few friends. It’s was magical. Ohji’s property is incredible. It is beautiful, welcoming and inspiring. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful experience in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
