Our property sits on 2 acres of pristine mix of redwoods, madrone, and oak trees. Amazing valley views, gate access from yard to hiking trails, and very quiet at night. Neighborhood overview Felton/Santa Cruz is full of things to do: - The Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railroad is a 3 ft narrow-gauge tourist railroad. - Henry Cowell State Park, most famous for the 40-acre grove of towering old-growth redwood trees. - Mystery Spot: Experience gravity-defying demonstrations on the short but steep uphill walk. - Garden of Eden: Secret swimming hole with lots of fun boulders to jump off and swim around. We will fill you in on how to get there. - Cruise on bikes down West Cliff Drive - Hang out at beach and relax... - And of course, world famous surfing in Santa Cruz. We have a two-night minimum on weekends.

Peaceful Mini-Cabin Experience
I loved my stay at the beautiful La Casita! Such a peaceful place to relax and enjoy a campfire with the refreshing forest air. Be sure to stop at the Safeway in Felton to pick up a box of firewood – the campfire completed my amazing experience at Connie's cabin. And for the decor enthusiasts, you'll be greeted with eclectic decorations in both the cabin and the guest bathroom. I also spoke with Connie's husband while at the property – who was so friendly and offered recommendations for local adventures. Highly recommend you check out La Casita!!

Connie’s casita is adorable. Very clean and comfortable. My favorite part was the view from the front door and the fire pit nearby. Loved this space and would absolutely book here again. It was close to some great hiking and the town of Felton has some good shopping too.

Not private but great views & cute
Mixed feelings. On one hand, the campsite is beautiful - the scenery is gorgeous, the bus itself is super cute, and the view is truly killer. On the other hand, the campsite isn't as private as advertised or nearly as secluded as we would have liked - it is stationed directly next to the parking lot used by the tenant and other guests staying at La Casita. The outdoor shower is connected to the cabin where the tenant stays, which was a bit uncomfortable given that you can be seen directly from the cabin and the shower curtain was quite low. Lastly, the bathroom did not have running water and the compost toilet leaked, which was not fun. No hand soap was provided so bring your own.

This location is dreamy! The camper has electricity so we were able to use our crock pot to make chili for dinner and brought a camp stove for breakfast. The outdoor shower was pure bliss after a day of hiking. And the outhouse was very convenient and made a great spot to store my gear and clothes so I didn't crowd the camper.

Daisy was a great bus to stay in for multiple nights. Beds were very comfortable, shower and amenities were exactly as described. Connie and her husband Peter were helpful when we needed it. The town of Felton is cute and a great launching point for hikes, trail runs and a short drive to the beach.

Relaxing stay - redwood magic!
This was possibly one of the best Hipcamp stays I have had. The camper is perfect - nice clean fluffy linens and pillows, tidy inside and out, with clear instructions and recommendations for local restaurants / activities provided. There is a picnic table and 2 chairs located right outside and I brought my own cooler, but there is one there provided. The scenario is absolutely gorgeous with all of the redwood trees. Thoughtful touches with chairs overlooking the views were provided. The bathroom is right nearby, with a compost toilet, and privacy. The outdoor shower is connected to the cabin nearby and hot water and pressure was great - a fantastic experience to shower under the redwood trees. I was able to relax, read my book, walk around the property trails a bit and truly had a wonderful time. I dined at several of the restaurant suggestions and had a lovely time. This is on private land and I felt very safe as a single female traveler. Thank you Connie!

Perfect glamping experience
We loved glamping at Connie’s tiny home. It was as pictured and met all of our expectations. The view was amazing, and it was the perfect getaway for our anniversary from the Bay. She also had tiny thoughtful touches and was very communicative and transparent which we really appreciated. Would definitely stay there again next time and recommend to our friends.

Small tiny house with a view
Overall we had a great experience. Nestled in the redwoods with a view from the deck. Lovely redwood loop path. Outdoor shower of our cabin was great. Even the privacy was nice. We used a shared bathroom off the main house when nature called. A second comfy (small) chair inside was desired. I found the bed comfortable, once in. The narrow entrance to the loft bed was a bit tricky for this 50-ish couple. We enjoyed our stay, but did not see the same value our host put on this small tiny house.

La Casita
Connie’s directions to La Casita were very specific & we had no problem finding it. Upon entering the property we were blown away by breathtaking views. We couldn’t believe it!! La Casita is a very cozy & intimate tiny house! It is decorated very tastefully & Connie’s attention to small details such as the Keurig, speaker, & robes elevated our experience. We loved the communal areas like the fire pit & the wisteria walk. It was all so beautiful. The outdoor shower warmed up so fast & the water pressure felt amazing! Coffee in the morning out on the deck was such a great way to start our day. The bathroom in the main house was still private to us so that was awesome. I would suggest bringing a little fan as it gets a little stuffy in the loft bed. Other than that, La Casita should be on your list of places to stay!

My partner and I had an amazing stay at La Casita. We were travelling from Canada and this spot had everything we needed - towels, an outdoor shower, and an amazing view. It was the perfect spot for a 2 nights stay to visit surrounding areas in California like Santa Cruz and Big Sur. Hoping we'll be back again sometime in the future!

A good night's sleep in the woods
My husband and I loved our short one-night stay at the casita. So close to Santa Cruz, and yet such a quiet and wonderful retreat to a simpler night in the woods. The outdoor shower was so warm and nice under the canopy of leaves, and the bathroom accessible only a few steps away. We just made very simple meals, snacked for dinner as we arrived pretty late just around sunset, grilled on the fire pit in the morning before continuing on our road trip. Just what we were looking for. Thank you.

Awesome experience for anyone who likes camping or just wants to get into the woods. Lots of hiking off of Highway nine nearby. It was a little bit close to houses/the fire pit is somewhat shared but it did not detract from the experience at all! We would definitely stay here again

Lovely stay with gorgeous views
It was a nice, secluded retreat and I felt that I needed it to get away from the hustle + bustle of the city. We were able to make s’mores at the fire pit and watch the sunset. It was a beautiful property and other than the difficulty of finding the place at first, we had a pretty relaxing time.
