The vibe at Redwood Room Gazebo
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The location was epic! The setup was interesting. Some of the features are awkwardly set up to have so many campers. For a glamping price tag, I would consider it not fully set up. The construction of the building was a little ghetto and the toilets are only slightly better than squatting. The hosts were polite. I definitely would give it a visit, just enter with lower expectations towards the features and let the location charm you.
The location is great - right next to prime Big Sur coast and close to epic beaches, hikes, and wilderness. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, cups, plates, and is communal so you will get a chance to meet the hosts and other guests. The garden is lovely and overall it is a very sweet "off the grid" community.I would caution anyone who is sensitive to poison oak from coming here unless they do an extensive clearing of the trail. There is a 5 min hike up to the redwood bed and there is overgrown poison oak all along the trail. I had to do a thorough wash in tecnu as soon as I got home along with all of our clothes and bags.
Truly a magical stay. We felt bad for arriving just at dusk, but could use the cute hand-drawn map of the grounds near the parking area to find the yurt/tent. The bed was so comfortable and perfect as the temperature dropped a lot after dark. There is nothing better than waking up to this view of the ocean from the secluded valley. A cool jungle trail leads to the ocean with a 10 min walk. Went to Esalen at 1am from here; a 20 min drive.
This place was magical. One of the things I've loved about staying at "hipcamps" is being able to witness how many different ways there are to live one's life. I loved the communal feel to this place. There is a communal kitchen where campers and the host and family cooked and ate together. The sleeping space was absolutely beautiful, with a view of the ocean...as I said...magical. I would recommend this space 100%.
G and Elle were wonderful hosts. They were extremely friendly and welcoming of us to their home. The gazebo was a short hike with an amazing view. We enjoyed both the privacy from our room and socializing in the communal areas with other guests, eating dinner with them in the well-supplied kitchen. My boyfriend and I found their space to be super special, the energy and care that has been put into the farm is obvious in every corner. We were also easily able to sneak in and out for Esalen night bathing. We hope to return for another weekend escape sometime.
The place was wonderful - it was exactly as expected and even better with the location. The only thing that was off putting was the hosts weren’t great. I was excited to meet them or hear about the property etc. and they were pretty unfriendly. It would be nice for the property to have a more welcoming vibe. We would love to give it another chance maybe it was an off weekend. They did speak to us a bit but we felt like we were bothering them when we did talk to them. I wonder if there’s something we did wrong or if they don’t enjoy having guests?
