Christie was a great host, very helpful and friendly. The camper was just what we needed- an easy, convenient place to crash for the night between great hiking areas. It was like camping but easier than pitching a tent and comfortable with an inflatable bed!

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad the convenience of not having to pitch a tent worked out for you and that you enjoyed all that Santa Cruz has to offer :-)

We came up to the Santa Cruz Mountains to celebrate my wife’s birthday and could not have been happier with our stay! The airstream matched with the location made for the perfect blended experience; we had the luxury of a mattress (a comfortable air mattress!) and the tranquility of the forest. It was in a great location, and we definitely plan on coming back when we visit the area again.

Beautiful spot! Close enough to town to be super convenient but far enough to feel remote. We heard a barn owl at night!

This vintage trailer and space was perfect! I only had one day to enjoy a little staycation. I was so happy to find this place available. I arrived, with clear instructions and directions and found the place exactly as described. It's only a mile from the Land of Medicine Buddha Retreat and I spent the morning prior to check in there. The trailer is private, and super cute. The location is only a 5 minute drive from downtown Capitola and I was able to grab lunch and dinner there, catch some live music and then return back to the trailer for my evening. There are chairs to relax in overlooking the creek, and the surfboard shower is so cool. The outhouse bathroom is only a short walk away right outside the fence of the trailer (less than 50 feet). I highly recommend and plan to come back.
