About Private Beach Farm
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 ( Firewood available on the property for sale or bring your own), 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. 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. If you're booking rainy season months be advised, the greenhouse does provide some protection, but being an old greenhouse it does leak. .......Kids under 10 are free... *****LOOK***** BE ADVISED, From time to time, especially weekends, the property has events with upwards of 100 people.

The vibe at Private Beach Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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 AWESOME. The greenhouse where we camped is super cute and a great way to camp "outdoors" while also having some of the conveniences of "indoors", wich a bathroom/shower etc. It is an easy walk to the ocean (can hear the waves while you sleep), and you can either stop by the private beach, walk along the cliff-side trails, or do yoga on one of the many yoga platforms overlooking the water (all of which we thoroughly enjoyed). Also, we made pizzas in the pizza oven, which was a first and definitely an adventure, but also a super cool experience the pizzas themselves turned out to be great! Overall an incredible experience, we definitely recommend it!
This is truly a magical paradise! We had a lovely time exploring the gardens and walking down to the ocean. Be sure to catch both the sunset & sunrise - just divine. The location feels otherworldly. So private & peaceful - a perfect weekend getaway. :)
Unbelievable location, great access to the beach, and a complete feast for the eyes.
The property is vast and an absolute joy to explore. The perfect place to unplug and breath the fresh air. Booking process is fast and easy, the accommodation is perfect for small groups that enjoy nature and wide open spaces. A group of 3 of us stayed one night and it was unforgettable. 10 outta 10 would book again.
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.
