Along a wild and lonely coastline, where the mountains meet the sea
Have a place to set up your own tent, bedroll and bedding
This is a minimalistic homestead, practicing simple eco-sustainable and environmentally friendly living techniques. Your contribution helps to facilitate the nurturing and sharing of this sacred space.
Surrounded by National Forest, there are many great hiking trails and beaches nearby. This is a great place for meditation and exploration, although some areas can be very dangerous with steep cliffs and loose rocks.
There is no internet, electricity or phone service for miles in either direction. There is fresh water, composting poopers, and an outdoor open kitchen with pots and pans, a camp-stove and a fire-pit with grill for cooking. Feel free to cook for yourself or bring food to share and to help prepare meals. Food may be available. Donations are appreciated.
