Additional guests can camp at the campsite by the yurt, text/call for details and for any questions or requests. 805-698-8623The drive down is a bumpy dirt road. I suggest coming during the day. There is a big friendly puppy that may visit you. But we can always come down and pick him up if wanted. The yurt comes with lanterns/flashlights/towels for the hot tub. And a clean cozy bed. A heater. Hot shower.

Magical yurt playrgound
What an awesome time at Harmony's yurt we had! Although a last-minute decision to stay the one available night here, I would absolutely recommend it to anyone traveling to the area! I do, however, think fellow Hipcampers could benefit from a bit more info before they book, here I go-
If you read one part of my review make it this- you will NEED a higher-clearance car to make the trip all the way down the mountain to this location. We happened to drive a 4Runner, but a sedan would just not make it. It is a curvy dirt road with holes the last ~10 minutes after the GPS drops you off from the paved road. I do wish there were a bit more signs, but just keep going until you reach a clearing with two porto-potties (which are very clean btw), this is where you park. FYI- you'll probably lose service before you get to this point, so plan accordingly. There are conveniently placed carts to help shuttle your stuff across the bridge and to the Yurt, nice touch!
The Yurt itself is fantastic. Impeccably clean and overall adorable. Bed was comfy, a lantern provided, Harmony even brought us a propane heater- definitely my glampiest experience! The rest of the grounds is huge! Would be so fun to rent each campsite (there are several-but only one per booking in covid times) with a large group of friends. There's a large cooking area/stove (just bring a long lighter & cookware) for anything you need. The HOT TUB- oh my, we weren't going to book it but i'm so glad we did. They will come light the fire for you & fill it up, the adorable tub stays hot for hours & is such a treat in the trees near the stream. Definitely a must.
We loved that this was dog-friendly, the neighbor dog also loved this, as he was *very* friendly with our pup, and though he is very large, is also very sweet.
The Waterfall hike- it is only a 30-45 minute hike each way, ending at a beautiful waterfall that looks like it would be an amazing swimming area in warmer temps, but there are some caveats. The actual "trail" only extends a bit until you get to the creek, so just follow the water until you arrive. This will require zigzagging across rocks and some strategy to get there. Our bigger issue is that we found several ticks on our dog after returning. Thankfully he already had been medicated for ticks, so if you bring your pup this is necessary. Spray yourselves with insect repellent before you go! And watch for poison oak, I noticed it mostly in the beginning of the trail. I still think this walk is worth it- just utilize the heated outdoor shower when you return!
Overall our short experience here was great & Harmony was a delightful but unobtrusive host. I'd definitely like to come back, the proximity to Santa Barbara is unbeatable- but you are definitely out in nature!
I hate to share with public how beautiful this gem of a location is, but its only fair! Beautiful camp site in remote location with immediate access to running stream. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, this is your spot!
