Family-owned since the 1960's my parents chose this ridgetop location on 10 acres for its beauty, serenity, bio-diversity, and amazing peaceful healing energy. The main house is called Rainbow Ridge where a double rainbow appears across the skyline on occasion. We have decided to share this land with conscious folks who want to retreat to the woods from the hustle and bustle but be close to all the action and have all the creature comforts of home with a camping vibe. We have one private site with a glamorous bell tent and a modern tiny home. The site comes as a single package and is exclusive to you and your group!  Nestled on its own private 3-acre redwood and oak forest, leading down to a creek. The site is located just 4 miles (10 min drive ) from Soquel Village and just 5 miles from the beach at Capitola.  The site offers:  - A 20ft modern container home with one queen sofa bed, large screen with Apple TV, kitchen, patio, fridge, microwave, cooktop, shower, and toilet. - A custom, outdoor kitchen, and bar for entertaining with gas BBQ, fridge freezer, sink with hot and cold filtered water, Sonos sound system.   - Large gas fire pit and seating area.  - One large glamping bell tent with queen bed and option for one or two singles to be added on request. The tent has electricity, fan and heating for colder nights.  - Space for 1-2 additional tents. For groups of 8 or more and special events please contact us so we can discuss the possibilities.  - Onsite you should find all the basic amenities from home including all bedding, towels, kitchenware, cooking utensils, dining ware, herbs and spices, cleaning products, gas for the BBQ and fire pit is included etc. There are a few things you should bring: Food, drinks, ice and fun!  The site looks down into a private and secluded redwood and oak forest with trails for small hikes into the redwood fairy circles or all the way down to the creek. The glamping site is on a sunny flat area surrounded by steep terrain up to a ridgeline and down to the creek. The creek is accessible although the final route requires a rope down so may not be suitable for everyone. Within 15-20 min drive you will find almost all major attractions in the Santa Cruz area including The Mistery Spot, Nisene Marks State Forest, Capitola Pier, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, and many famous surf breaks from Capitola to The Point, The Hook, Steamer Lane and many more., as well as many amazing mountain bike trails. There are also several Santa Cruz Mountain wineries to explore in a 3- 5 mile radius. Further afield you will find Monterey Bay Aquarium and the coastal beaches north up to San Francisco Bay ( 1 hour 30 mins north) and down to Big Sur about 1 hour 20 mins south. We ask all our visitors to be respectful of the environment, our wildlife, and our neighbors. Please drive slowly and respect the quiet times: between 9.30 pm and 8.30 am. We check all our guests in and provide a quick tour. We can offer a number of additional amenities and services including shopping, stocking up on your favorite supplies, catering, romantic packages and special picnics on the Rainbow Ridge, and much more, so please just ask about all the possibilities.

Best Glamping trip ever
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.

Would highly recommend!
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.

Camping with style
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.

Glamping at its finest!
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! :)
