We are "Pixie's Place Animal Sanctuary & Hospice", a non-profit 501.(c)(3) Trust for the Animals who live here. (PLEASE READ :) I'M SORRY BUT I CANNOT OFFER EXCEPTIONS; THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING)

Greetings Nature Lovers!

We had an amazing 1st season, filled with amazing peeps who all contributed to making us lucky #12 in Cali! 

(We also have a 2nd seasonal listing: 12 x 12 TiPi).

First, I'd like to Thank all of the Hipcamper's whom have chosen to make us part of their travels and journey! A BIG thank you, for all the love and respect you brought with you here; all the yummies shared with the animals; the many treasures you gifted me, including just with your presence; but most importantly, all the little special touches that you felt compelled to leave behind for your fellow Hipcamper's next to visit!

You've all warmed my heart, and make me proud of what beautiful humans you are!

...and why I ALWAYS say: I HAVE THE BEST HIPCAMPERS!!!!

You guys rock, and big love from me to you! xo

We are so grateful to have visitors who not only care about nature, but also the animals; many who come for that reason…to support the animals at Pixie’s Place.

Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible, so you feel like you're visiting friends/family. This is not a party house, it's not a playground or park. We offer a spiritual communion with animals and nature :)

Energetically speaking, this area is an energy vortex, with Native American Indian spirits tied to the history of the land. The river bed is slabs of quartz and granite, making the river and my property a very healing experience.

UFO’s frequently inhabit the pulsating canopy of night sky.

Shamanic Healing sessions are available to book.

Please feel free to message me with questions, or requests :)

(Important for me to know your ETA so that I'm sure to be here to guide you around and introduce you to the animals :)

I look forward to making your experience as special as you are!

We are a 420 friendly, artist/writer/shamanic/Hipcamp retreat. 

(We also offer a Quantum Healing Shamanic Retreat, which is available to city dwellers through: CrystalSoundQuantumHealing.com.)

We are located at the entrance to Sequoia Nat'l Park/Lake Kaweah, in the village of Three Rivers, CA (Central Cali; between Bakersfield (1 hour and 40 min) and Fresno (1 hour and 10 min.); 30 min up the hill, above Visalia). 3 hours N.E. from L.A.

(IGNORE GPS FROM SO CAL IF IT TELLS YOU TO TAKE THE 5 TO THE 99 TO THE 65. CORRECT DIRECTIONS ARE: 5 TO THE 99 TO 198/VISALIA AND TAKE IT STRAIGHT UP THE HILL PAST THE LAKE. AS YOU ENTER THREE RIVERS, THE 198 BECOMES 198/SIERRA DR. THIS WILL TAKE YOU RIGHT TO OUR STREET JUST AFTER YOU ENTER 3R). 

(ANOTHER THING TO NOTE: GPS AND THE INTERNET DO NOT PICTURE MY HOUSE WHEN YOU ENTER MY ADDRESS, IT'LL SHOW YOU THE HOUSE JUST PAST MY HOUSE SO BE AWARE).

This listing offers: 1956 11 ft Aluminum "Rainbow" Trailer available for 2 people, with access to the Chalet toilet. Please note: ONLY ONE-TWO people (no pets allowed inside) as it is a 63 year old trailer, I like to treat her gently...lol.

The quaint trailer sits within a permaculture garden at the front of the property, closer to the road; however it is very private, and subdued. There is a Chiminea to cook with or to enjoy sitting in front of for warm when needed. There is an assortment of vintage garden furniture to create a fun outdoor living space!

In addition to the Shamanic Retreat, we offer a camping spot down in a lower area on the 3/4 of an acre property (see listing for details). The main chalet sits above, with a corral and Sanctuary Reading shed in between. The South Fork of the Kaweah River is at the back of the property with a very "sweet" swimming hole to enjoy as long as the water is flowing down the river as it is seasonal depending on drought conditions. However, mid May-late June it's perfect!

I limit the activity here by having only 2 listings; limited to a total of 4 total guests on the property possible between the two listings.

The property is not kid friendly, and is not really here for children as much as it is offered for the inner child in adults. WE ARE 420 friendly which is in opposition to most "family" landscapes....so please note this is not personal but I prefer no children xo

Also, I prefer no pets, as it disrupts the balance here with the animal residents :)

If interested, ask me to screen the New Media/Experimental film I made which screened at London at Cinema Magic. The animals of Pixie's Place were actors in the film, along with many of the scenes filmed here.

We set up a projector to screen outside if weather permits :)

 Everything works a little bit like a bed and breakfast; a non pretentious environment that supports the animals, self healing; and the enjoyment of sharing this sacred spot I have created.

There is a camping stove & grill available for campers to use, along with Chimineas for a fire (when Fire Bans are not in place). Plenty of wood to harvest on property or the Village Market up the road. Be sure to provide your own propane (Coleman 16 oz camping canister) as there is currently none available up here.

Also, be sure to bring your own drinking water.

Feel free to invest in the vegetable garden; help yourself to any available fruit, as well as the abundant fresh Rosemary & Lavender.

(Be aware that I don't offer public use of my only shower).

Your bookings support the animals whom you can interact with. 

We have "Pixie Emelia Aurora" aka "Pea" our mascot; a 10 year old Nubian goat. Siddartha Cloudwalker a Nigerian Dwarf, along with his son, Sage Lyrid Ray, born here on Earth Day 2012! Bowie the 1 year old Buck, along with twin sisters: Vela & Thea....and new rescue goat Casper. We have a family of bunnies, and ducks: Dr. Seuss & Dr. Spock...our Quackers!

There are many cats, who each have their stories of how they found their way to Pixie's Place, including horses: bad boy mustang "Hermes Inyo Ray" , along with new rescue: quarter horse "Lyra". We take on who we can; assuring all creatures a place they can live, be loved and accepted for their "issues" until the cross the rainbow bridge xo

I am an animal communicator, artist and shamanic practitioner: crystal sound healing, and soul coaching (BMI recording artist; SAG member)

Thank you for being a part of this journey!

I had a lovely stay at Wendi's caravan in her backyard, it is cosy and has great decorations. Wendi is such a nice and open person, loved talking to her and listen to her great stories. If you love animals, you'll love staying here! It is also closeby the entrance of Sequoia national park.

Not only did Wendi welcome us with open arms and showed us around, the animals also welcomed us pretty well and made it a special location. If you are an animal lover and love the stars go see Wendi!

My girlfriend and I definitely will be back as she really made it special for us. Thanks Wendi!

This was such an amazing setup and the host was so accommodating and nice. There are so many cats that are very friendly, a lot of space near the camper and very cool decor around the entire property. This is conveniently located near Sequoia too making it easily accessible.

Everything was amazing! First I'll start with the amazing host, Wendi. She is welcoming and so accommodating. Then her gorgeous property. With the river in the backyard and animals that live there. I can't forget to mention the location. So close to the Sequoias. I can go on and on. But I will let you book and see for yourself.

Wendi's place is awesome! She is a great host and beautiful human. Very responsive to questions. The property is so close to town but feels miles away. We will for sure be back.

Wendi's place is magical and filled with good energies. It was perfect for my trip, where I spent the early day hiking around Sequoias and King's Canyon NP and coming after to relax at the place. Wendi and her animals are great hosts, helpful, kind, and super friendly. I would recommend this place to be a perfect place to disconnect and also visit the national parks nearby!

We loved staying in Wendy’s camper! Wendy was such a gracious host and made us feel right at home. Her animals were a real standout and we loved hanging with all of them. The spot was so beautiful with so much to offer. It was a highlight of our trip and we cannot recommend it enough!

Adorable couple; all my kiddos are the best peeps, and this beautiful "just engaged" couple were in keeping with our wonderful Hipcamp family! Thank you for finding us, and spending time here with the animals who love their "people" xo All the best!
