The place is unique and amazing. Ohji even provided us blanket and clean sheets on arrival. Ohji’s family are so friendly, they greeted us very warmly once we arrived.

Such a wonderful little haven right in the middle of that wild California land, where the ocean meets the mountains. The hosts were lovely, and the beach is just a short walk away. Would definitely recommend this spot!

Wow! Such a unique and beautiful place!! Can't wait to come back. Thank you Ohji and Bree for sharing your little corner of paradise with us 😁

outdoor shower with hot water was divine!Incredible location!! Ohji's charming place is tucked into a little canyon just behind the white railing bridge...outdoor compost toilets are strategically placed around the property. Was a little weird at first but you get used to it ;) And the host has obviously put time and thought into making these comfortable and private.This is true off the grid living :)outdoor kitchen was so well equipped with everything we needed! Fellow campers were courteous and friendly as we shared the space and equipment.

Everything was magical! We made friends, had a fire with the other campers, and watched the sunset from the beach. And the cat was so sweet! We wished we stayed longer. Best part of our trip by far.
