Get away to the redwoods in our renovated 1968 Aristocrat Land-Commander! Perfectly situated on the "slow coast," this is the ideal base camp for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy all that the area has to offer: hiking, cycling, beach-combing, surfing, paddling, creekside picnics, goat farms, wine tasting, and more. For a tasty meal, camping supplies, and live music on the weekends, the Loma Mar Store is a 5-minute walk. The town of Pescadero is a picturesque 10-minute drive (or 30-minute cycle) along the creek. 

The camper sits on an area of our 4-acre property that used to have a home built on it (it burnt down back in the '90s). There's still an existing slab foundation (which makes for a nice open space to play ping pong or cornhole), plus a garage/woodworking shop and surfboard shaping shed. We use this part of the property for hobby projects, but don't worry, you'll have the area all to yourself during your stay. On rare occasions we may need to pop into the garage to grab something, but will be in and out in a minute or so.

The camper will best accommodate a couple, but would also work for a small family (see details below for bookings with children). Cozy and comfortable, the camper is equipped with electricity, a kitchen and sink, small refrigerator, heater, water closet with toilet, convertible full-size futon, and a dinette table (which can be lowered to make a single bed). There is a flat area behind the patio deck which is ideal for a tent camping if an additional sleeping area if needed. Just outside the camper, a spacious redwood deck with lounge set makes for ample hang-out space. You'll find a grill, hammock, fire pit (with skewers for roasting marshmallows or sausages), and ping pong table for guests to use at their leisure while back at camp. There's a hot-water outdoor shower hidden in the trees (accessible via spiral staircase) for cleaning up after a day of play.

** An important note for families with young children: ** There are a number of ledges with steep drop-offs beneath, mainly around the slab foundation (where the ping pong table is), but also the patio deck and spiral staircase leading to the outdoor shower. There are a few photos that show the varying heights between the slab, the trail up to the outdoor shower, and the upper deck with the outdoor fireplace. Please be advised that the outdoor areas around the camper can be dangerous for young children and the property is best suited for adults or parents with kids ages 5 and up. We are happy to welcome families to our campsite, but want to make sure parents feel fully comfortable and are able to enjoy their stay without stress.

Such a magical spot! Loved all the little details and spaces. Host was very accommodating when our adult getaway turned into a family-of-four trip. Ping-pong, deck, hammock, firepit, outdoor shower and a real toilet were all much appreciated! I couldn’t stop taking pictures of this perfect glamping spot. We couldn’t find a wine opener (thank goodness for screw tops) and the Wi-Fi wasn’t strong enough for our projector to watch an outdoor movie but living without electronics for a weekend was a good thing!

I loved my stay! My dogs and I spent 6 nights here and loved every minute. The camper is perfect: cozy, well stoked and and spotless. The outdoor spaces are lovely and relaxing and there's a spot for every time of the day. I looked forward to my outdoor showers every morning! The location is close to town and the coast but tucked just enough into the redwoods to feel like you are away from it all. Madison has thought of everything! I already booked my next stay in the special place!

Happy pups! Loved all the special touches indoors and out! *NEW* Cozy Camper in the RedwoodsPerfect little spot to relax

What a great place! Beautifully set up -- the camper was fantastic, and there was a nice flat space for our extra tent for our kids. Really beautifully hidden among the redwoods. And Madison was great (the bowl of cherries were delicious and a nice touch). Would 100% recommend this for a glamping recharge getaway! Thanks!

Had a fantastic time. The camper was so clean and private. Madison had a lot of things available that I didn’t realize would be added, even half and half for our coffee! The outdoor shower was an adventure and kind of cool! I recommend this place if you want a step up from camping but privacy.
