The vibe at Secluded Open Preserve Property
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This place reminded me of the wild Wild West with modern amenities.
We booked the spot for early October so it was still hot and everything in the area felt like the desert still. Driving here felt like you were definitely going off the beaten path; the roads were unpaved and bumpy (hey you're trying to escape the city, right?).
When we finally reached the property, we saw a cute home with a nice awning like structure to provide reprieve from the heavy sun. We didn't get much direction besides how to get to the property, so we ended up setting up shop on the pavement. We were told we could camp anywhere in the property, but given that we learned that is was still snake season from another listing that we stayed at a few weeks earlier, we didn't want to get too adventurous.
The place has quite a few amenities and is generally a nice place to relax, however, the place is shared with Airbnb guests. This meant that we had to share the bathroom with those guests as well. But if you are looking to rough it, I am sure you will be just fine.
There are three dogs on the property, a German shepherd, a toy poodle of some sort and a massive (insert breed here). The former two dogs are not that friendly and will just bark at you until they get tired. However the latter is sooo playful. Albeit massive, the dog thinks he's a puppy and will jump at you to greet ya.
We ended making food on equipment that we bought, so do not rely on there being a kitchen as it's part of the Airbnb listing. We also were told that the massive dog runs out at night chasing coyotes away at night, which may give you a bit of a spook (or a thrill) at night. We were able to spend some time using the fire pit and got a chance to do some star gazing which was a romantic way to end the night.
Overall we thought that the stay was pleasant, and that the property has a lot of potential to be a great camping spot. If there was more communication with the host and that there is a dedicated spot for the hipcampers on the premise, I think the stay would be even more special.
