There's no need to pitch camp with our spacious, sun-drenched Yurt! Settle in, and relax on our beautiful 5.5 acre rustic farmstead, nestled in the cozy hills of Aromas, CA! We are just minutes away from Highway 101, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Our property features sweeping majestic views toward the coast of Monterey and down toward Big Sur. The land features walking trails up toward a beautiful oak grove at the ridge of the property, and down the other side into several acres of wilderness. We are located about 15 minutes from the ocean at Moss Landing, and 30 to 45 minutes away from Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel and Santa Cruz.

Our furnished private Yurt features fantastic picturesque views of the hillside and farm, as well as our budding food forest on the uphill side. The yurt features plenty of space and seating for a party of four, a queen-sized bed, a comfy couch to spread out on, and an optional full airbed if you need extra sleeping accommodations. There is a propane heater available for chilly nights. The yurt is powered by large electric battery/generators with plenty of juice to power the lights, charge your phone or laptop, and even write a novel on the electric typewriter!

The yurt does not include kitchen facilities or refrigeration, but the site does also feature a large shared fire pit and grill, plenty of folding chairs, and a shared picnic table which can comfortably seat 6.  We have a composting toilet and portable toilet for guest use, an outdoor sink with hot water, and a semi-enclosed “indoor/outdoor” shower with plenty of hot water and pressure, all a short walk down the hill from the yurt.

Whether you’re passing through on a road trip along California’s majestic landscape, or looking to spend some time getting to know the lush landscape of the Central Coast, we welcome you with open arms!

The Yurt was really nice, very comfortable and thoughtfully decorated. Definitely puts the glam in glamping. I booked it for a romantic birthday weekend and would definitely go again. Travis is great, everything was nice and ready for us. They even have a spare set of headlamps so you can get around at night (though the Yurt itself has lights so you only need them to walk outside).

The firepit is really nice with an easy to use great for cooking and they've got pots and pans on-site. Make sure you bring dry goods or a cooler.

Really convenient location of 101, super fast to get to but far enough from the highway that you still feel like you're getting away. A lot of the activities you might care about are a 20-30 minute car ride. While there's a short trail on the property, you'll probably want to go somewhere during the day. If you just want to camp at night, hang around a campfire, and look at the stars then you don't to leave the property.

There's a few animals on the property. Highly recommend saying hi to Pie if you can (he's a 15 year old shepherd mix and incredibly sweet).

The bathroom is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but it's a campsite. It gets the job done but is true to a farm experience. There's both a composting toilet and a port-a-potty. I preferred to just go outdoors (there's enough privacy that you can) but it's there if you want it (or for more serious jobs).

The outdoor shower has great water temperature so you can actually take a hot shower after a long day of hiking. Bring flip flops if you want to use it and keep your feet clean.

The yurt was incredible - spacious and cozy, and the location had amazing views. Travis and Jessica took care of small details like giving us extra headlamps, firewood, and leaving buckets of water by the fire. I'd return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful experience staying in the yurt! The property is beautiful and everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. We loved being able to support terra cultura! If we are ever in the area again, we will surely stop here again!

The Yurt was super comfy and awesome! Our hosts took the time to show us around and give us clear instructions on how things work on the property. They offered us extra wood if we needed it and were great about leaving out water to put out our fire afterwards. I'd totally go again!

This place is absolutely MAGICAL! The yurt is as cozy as can be and it feels like your staying in a little fairy house. The property is a 501C3 and was made to be an educational sustainable farm, which I loved! We loved the property, the host, and everything about this place. Just magical!
