Our stay at the Oak Haven was such a peaceful escape!

Nestled behind a local organic farm and retreat center in the California central coast, the tent site sits under an incredible 350 yr old oak tree. Ruth, the host and farm owner, greeted us upon arrival and gave a short run-down of the accommodations and amenities. She was very welcoming and made sure that we had everything we needed to be comfortable!

The tent had ample space inside and we had such a great night’s rest in the comfy queen bed. The kitchen area was perfect for making our morning coffee to enjoy on the deck. The bathroom and shower room are also a huge perk. They were very clean and the shower had hot water in seconds. Towels were not provided, so be sure to bring your own. You'll likely need them anyways if you plan to hit up the nearby beaches :)

We really enjoyed our stay at Oak Haven and can’t wait to come back!

We had a great time staying here for 4 nights while checking out local beaches, hiking and hot springs. Really nice location, but far enough from the main road to feel peaceful and secluded. Loved the big trees and all the birds outside, and the outdoor kitchen/shower/bathroom. Ruth was super helpful, she checked in to see if we needed anything and gave us some advice on what to do in the area. Spacious tent with a comfy bed, and lamps + power outlets, nicer than most hotels I've stayed at.

Ruth's place was amazing! The tent was adorable and well-equipped and she made sure to have everything in tip top shape for us when we arrived. The bathrooms were also way nicer than expected. Would definitely stay here again when I'm in town!

This camp is already well on its way to be a gem in the glamping category. The tent is elevated with a broad wood patio in front perched just to the side of a 350 year-old oak tree, the furnishings inside are tasteful and sparse, the host gave me a warm welcome and the mattress was so comfortable I'm considering upgrading my mattress at home!

The bathrooms are really something special. Using Japanese techniques and beautiful wood and stone, they blend into the environment but are fully modern with high flow and plenty of hot water.

On the other side is a small but fully equipped kitchen with four gas burners, a wok and other small cooking pans. You can cook a full meal here, just add your own spices. Then place the leftovers in the small fridge. There is even an outdoor washer and dryer.

Since this camp is new, I spoke at length with Ruth, the host, and shared some of the features I have found that set apart a destination. This is from using AirBnB for five years and experiencing wonderful spots in Spain, Mexico and all over Canada and the US. In other words, I'm looking forward to checking back in on a future trip and getting to relax once again on the front porch sipping a cool drink.

Ruth was incredibly welcoming, the site had all the amenities without having to hike it all in Anne set it up then break it down. For several days we were able to make excursions to local beaches, restaurants, and other adventures in the area. We started and ended our days here in this very comfortable camp.

Ruth is a super thoughtful host and we had a great time on her farm. The accommodations are quite amazing... True glamping! SLO and Arroyo Grande both close by. Ended up bringing a bag full of fresh, delicious organic produce home with us. Hope to visit again soon!

Thanks so much, Ben Bradley. We super enjoyed having you here. We are always excited when guests want a farm tour and even better yet, when they purchase our fresh produce on our farm stand. Hope you will return again one day!
