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.

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.

Redwood Basin Private Glampsite was a really nice venue to get away for the weekend with some friends. Beautiful redwoods surrounding the site and great accommodations. All the essentials are taken care of like, shower, cookware, utensils, cups, etc. The gas fire pit was the highlight at night. Another highlight was Rose, the gopher-hunting golden retriever, who visited us several times throughout the weekend looking for gophers and belly rubs.

We loved being emerged in the trees, while having all the luxuries of high end camping. The trees were amazing and the host(s) were so thoughtful. Would definitely come back!

Great family friendly site perfect for our family of 5 plus a furry member. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay - shower, restroom, heater(s), outdoor kitchen / fridge, etc. you’ll only need to bring clothes/food/drinks.

Evenings around the fire were awesome and the Glamping tent is definitely more spacious then it looks in the photos which is a plus.

Safeway and main st only a quick 10m drive away.

Would highly recommend and would most definitely return.

Absolutely awesome private glamping and would not hesitate to use again or recommend to anyone. Place was beautiful and secluded and really well set up for a relaxing time. We stayed for three nights with two kids and a baby and tent was set up perfectly with giant bed and blow up singles for kids, all with cosy blankets. The tiny home with kitchenette and shower room helped make it great and the outdoor bar and kitchen had all the amenities we could need. Communication was clear and open and check in seamless, with help from Sabrina to welcome us, show us around and how everything worked and get us settled in. Thank you guys for wonderful stay! Best, michael and family
