This listing is as advertised. The tent, kitchen, and tiny house were quite comfortable. All who stayed agreed the beds were very comfortable, which was a huge bonus. One can never know when it comes to if a bed is comfy, IMO. I would recommend this to all my friends.

PS: Getting visits from Lady the Golden Retriever was an added treat. She is such a sweetheart.

This was my first time on a glamping trip as well as booking a stay on Hipcamp. We couldn't have been more pleased. The host Sabrina was beyond amazing. The little house and the yurt were beyond expectations. The Yurt is very spacious and I was pleasantly surprised with having a fan set up inside. The little house was perfectly equipped with a toilet, shower as well as a mini kitchen. Hot water was readily available. My favorite feature in the little house was the sleeping area as it opened up completely to the redwoods with a little porch. All bedding and decor were very comfortable and stylish. The hosts really do think of everything. The outdoor kitchen is awesome, fully stocked and very convenient for fixing meals and socializing with your group. My children enjoyed the trip as well and the trampoline was a major hit with my 7 year old. I would recommend having shoes that have tread if walking up and down the hill to the trampoline, as it is located down a slope from the main camping area. Overall, the campsite really exceeded our expectations but the host is what truly made the trip special for us. Sabrina was so easy to communicate with prior to our arrival and was so sweet as she showed us around so we knew where everything was and how to operate lights/bluetooth speakers etc. We will definitely be back. This place is a gem. It has all the amenities of home while camping. Do not hesitate to book this place.

I would highly recommend this place. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming. The campsite was very clean, including the tent and tiny house. There is a kitchen on site with everything you need to prepare your meals just bring your own food. The site is surrounded by beautiful redwood trees which creates a peaceful environment for you and your loved ones to have a wonderful time.

The hosts were very prompt at communication and accommodated our requests. The site was beautifully laid out, clean and well stocked with kitchen and grilling accessories. Perfect glamping among the redwoods with easy access to town and beach.

This site provided the absolutely perfect long weekend in the woods for our family of 4! Our host, Sabrina, was friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. She showed us around and then left us to enjoy. The kids were wild about the trampoline just down from the tent/ tiny house site. Both days we went down to the creek. Kids were thrilled to get quick visits from a (we think) gopher popping his head up and a turkey with two babies at our site.
They really thought of everything; there wasn't a thing we wished we had. While we intended to unplug, it was nice to catch a playoff game on the tv in the tiny house. Beds were comfortable, everything was immaculate. We'd definitely return! :)

Great place in Redwood Basin. Sabrina was great in explaining all the amenities. Kids enjoyed the small hiking and the trampoline in the forest. Everything was perfect as explained.
