We are a Permaculture and Moringa farm on the beach just North of Santa Barbara and Goleta, Ca. You will camp in a historic, glass greenhouse with incredible ocean views. Inside is a cob pizza oven that works awesome (Bring your own firewood), a place to pitch tents and tiny artistic structures to explore. You will have a private bath and shower (Primitive, no electricity, but the hot shower has the best view in the world of any shower!) Bring your own toiletries and whatnot). This is as close to paradise as any place on Earth. Private beach access from our property. Legal access, with a short walk, to a famous private surf break called 'Ed's Beach'.. We also have a barnyard with a multitude of farm animals. This is a great spot for a personal yoga getaway or a large yoga retreat as we have large and small yoga decks overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Limited electricity in greenhouse (A couple of extension chords).15 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. For a video of the space, go to youtube, search 'Private Beach Farm' ... Your 'FRIENDLY' pup is welcome, but due to loose farm animals and neighbors who have loose pets, it is the policy of the property to have visiting dogs on a leash whenever it is not in the greenhouse you are renting. The area is green from rain so a small campfire is allowed. Be advised, From time to time the property has events with upwards of 100 people. These events are not in your space nor near you, but you will see people walking around and hear music until 10 pm Some of those dates are as follows. March 11, 18 and 25.... April 8, 22, 29.... May 6, 20..... June 10 and 24..... July 2, 22, 29......August 5,12,19,26.... September 16, 23, 30 Please feel free to ask any questions, Thanks!
Such a sick spot! The private point break was epic, had the water to ourselves and the waves were dope. The green house we stayed in was so cool, great in between of roughing it but also having shelter. Tried to make pizzas in the oven but failed. Not because of the oven, our own fault. Fred is the man.
This is a great, unique find. Fred and Ginger are taking care of the land, which was an Orchid misery at one time (among a lot of other really cool history). They are using permaculture to restore the land, they've got an awesome little barn yard with the usual suspects and an alpaca. They also can be your venue or a wedding or event. You can walk to the beach which is way private. Although they advertise a room I suggest just camping. The room while creative is a dirt floor and pretty funky. But go - you gotta see what they've got going on there!
Fred and Jinger have a really amazing place. We had originally only planned to stay Friday night but after spending about 45 minutes knew we needed to extend our stay.
The greenhouse is beautiful and looks out on the ocean. We pitched our tent in the main area of the greenhouse but there are also little huts within the greenhouse that you could just unroll your sleeping pad and bag. Each hut has a little bit of it's own character - one is a 'wine bar', one is a meditation room, etc. The shower was super warm and looked out on the ocean.
We made dinner using the pizza oven and watched the sunset down on the private beach where there is also a picnic table and covered shelter. It rained most of Saturday so it was really nice having a bit of extra coverage. The roof of the greenhouse is missing a few windows so the rain came through but it was much more protected than being outside.
This is such a unique place and great for groups!
I want to keep this place a secret, one of the most unique and stunning places i have ever stayed. The green house is beautiful with twinkling lights, succulent gardens, and the most incredible view of the ocean. The only thing i regret is we only stayed 2 nights.
The farm is easy to find, Jinger and Fred were very helpful and responsive. The farm is close to Goleta which makes it easy to get to the store. Santa Barbara is only a 15 min drive if you want to explore.
Will definitely be back!
This place is an amazing, jaw dropping gem! Check in was a breeze and we had the whole green house to ourselves. We went down to the beach to watch the sunset and then started off the cob oven to make our pizza (byo firewood but there were a few pieces left from previous visitors or the kindness of Fred). We were in bed by 10 pm and rather than pitching our tents we just slept in one of the little bedroom nooks in our sleeping bags (covered, with lights inside). There are lights everywhere but they are mood lighting so I recommend you bring your headlamp for the finer details in the dark like preparing your pizza. It was such a romantic and blissful location. We sat on the swing in the morning and watched the Pacific Ocean from the green house and then went to meet the barn yard animals. Fred welcomed us in to meet the goats and they were adorable (all but the chickens are rescue farm animals). We didn't use the shower because we were launching right into some hiking the next morning so we can't comment on that part. Bathroom is bare bones as described but it does the job. We will definitely come back to stay here.
What an incredible location! Very friendly hosts and a lovely property. I will definitely be returning for an even longer stay.
This place is a little piece of heaven and I am totally going make this an annual trek. It is just gorgeous and was a dream weekend for my family. To essentially have your own greenhouse to call your own is priceless. We hiked around the property, viewed their aquaponic set up and made amazing pizza in the cobb pizza oven. Love, love, love.
What can I say? This place was absolutely amazing. Jinger was very nice and accommodating. The greenhouse had a very cool and unique design on the inside, being made out of recycled materials on the farm. It's filled with all kinds of succulents and other various plants. It was plenty big for the 4 of us camping and it will definitely fit a lot more people. You can either set up tents or use any of the 4 or 5 rooms they've built inside.
The property is on a private beach so you will literally have it all to yourselves, and there is a point break to the right of the beach that looks like it would be good on a decent size swell (there wasn't any when we visited so we didn't get to try it out).
Highlights from our visit:
The pizza oven was a huge highlight - if you go, definitely make pizza! Just ask Jinger how to use it. Besides the pizza oven, the animals were extremely entertaining and super friendly. There were dozens of chickens, a turkey, 3 goats, 2 pigs, and an alpaca. Also, I didn't think the shower would be a big deal, but the view was stunning.
I would definitely go again, but plan it during a good swell to get the most out of the private beach.
