Welcome to your own oasis on the magical Mendocino Coast!  We are entering into the most gorgeous weather on the coast and hope you are will be able to come take in this beautiful area. 

Pitch your tent in your own redwood grove, in the bliss of nature. We offer four sites on our property.   

Site #1 This site is a large area that is all your own, completely removed from our house. . Surrounded by redwoods and has a great line of site for the moon in the evening. We are in the sunbelt and the site can be covered in the sun during the afternoon. We provide a large fire area with an enclosed fire pit, wood provided for purchase.  It is within walking distance from our heavenly outdoor shower (made in redwood slabs and powered by one of the best outdoor shower systems) and our compost toilet.  We also provide a sink with hot water to wash dishes, hands etc.  This slice of heaven provides two tables and chairs, a power strip,  solar powered lights, and water.  Horseshoes and a tic toe board are available for some good ole fashion fun :) The  site is about a 1 minute walk from the house with a well lit pathway that takes you to a clearing on our 2 1/2 acre property among the trees.  

Site #2 This site is more quaint and is for a smaller group- can hold up to nine people and three to four medium tents.  We have provided hand carved mendo loungers, an enclosed fire pit with a cooking grate,  a large table and chairs.  Site 2 houses the hammock for perfect star gazing in the evening or relaxing in the afternoon.  The shower and sink area are close and you can park at site, one vehicle. .  You will be surrounded by perfectly placed solar lights in the evening. There is wood burning fire pit. You can see the house from this site a bit.  

Site #3 is tucked into the woods and completely removed from the house. It is surrounded by the redwoods and has a private hammock.  There is also parking available in this area.  Being in the trees provides a magical getaway vibe and we provide lots of seating and a mat for your tent.   It is within walking distance from our heavenly outdoor shower (made in redwood slabs and powered by one of the best outdoor shower systems) and our compost toilet.  

 Site 4 is our newest site and is in the back of property between site 1 and 3. It is a large space that offers both sun and shade. There are two lounge chairs, table and chairs and great fire pit. We also provide a sink with hot water to wash dishes, hands etc.  

We have a coffee and tea station for all of campers and is placed next to the sink. 

 If you are a Verizon or US Cellular customer you will have service at our home and in areas of the campsite, but ideally you can check out and enjoy the beauty! Once we show you around upon arrival, we do our best to allow our guests to really relax. We leave you alone but are very available for anything needed.

Our home is located in the special community of Albion, about 15 minutes south of Mendocino.  Albion is quaint and has a gas station and wonderful market open until 8pm.  The market has organic high quality food and the best homemade Indian food I have ever had!  Our property is up the ridge from the store, about a ten minute drive in the gorgeous sunbelt of the Mendocino coast.  It is almost always sunny and provides a bit of warmth from the coastal chill. 

The Albion River is absolutely stunning and the local church camp provides very inexpensive kayaking or canoeing for the whole family.  There is also a beach in Albion that is known for always having treasure- including sea glass ;)  The quaint town of Elk is approx 15 minutes South of Albion and is absolutely a must see in the area.  The beach and cafe are fabulous.  Mendocino (about a 15-20 minute drive) provides shopping, an amazing atmosphere, and a variety of beaches and incredible sites to see.  No matter what you are into it, this area can provide what you are looking for!  Great food, amazing art, gorgeous beaches, incredible hiking, abundant fishing, and whale watching almost year round!  The Botanical Gardens & Jug Handle State Natural Reserve (a hidden gem with a trail to a waterfall) are a few of my favorite treasures in the area.  We are available to provide any recommendations you may need for the area.  I recently read an article describing Mendocino and I can't help but share: 

"Winding three and a half hours north of San Francisco, the road to Mendocino may be as magical as the destination itself. Frequently no wider than a country lane, it corkscrews through mountain passes, parallels patches of farmland and vineyards, traverses a cathedral of redwoods, and chases the Navarro River to the sea.And what an arrival it is: tabletop headlands carved below by massive sea caves and topped above with barns, lighthouses, and cliffside inns. Amid the dramatic landscape nestles the downtown, with Victorian homes in Easter-egg colors and Main Street lined with a bookstore, museum, toy shop, chocolatier, B&Bs, and eateries. The wildflowers and scrub of Mendocino Headlands State Park blanket the edges of town, where gentle trails lead to secluded beaches and benches for pausing to take in the show of spouting whales and surf-riding sea lions.Once a logging and mill town, Mendocino has evolved into an arty enclave (with a median housing price of $700,000) that's home to 894 souls: bohemians and bakers, CEOs and sommeliers, four-generation families and farmers, innkeepers and iconoclasts. The residents will be the first to tell you it's the greatest place to live on Earth, steadfast in their belief that they have won the location lottery in life."

A little about us: We are a family of three that relocated to this magical area from the Bay Area and are truly excited to share our property with folks looking to get back into nature and explore the area we love so much!  Our home was recently purchased so we are still in the process of creating the dream home so there are areas where you can see projects going on.  That is no where near the campsite and there is a parking area provided. 

We look forward to hearing from you and let me know if you have any questions about our accommodations

This is a lovely little spot near Mendocino. It is well kept and the hosts have provided a number of nice/cute amenities. My group enjoyed our stay and I'd camp there again! Much quieter and cleaner than public campgrounds.

La Luna was great! Beautiful site - very private. There were also all these tiny little touches that were very sweet (coffee / tea station, fresh flowers at our campsite, bug spray etc.) Would recommend.

What a magical experience we had! The site was so cozy and plush, shower was awesome, coffee bar saved us in the morning. The site was just rustic enough, we were comfortably situated in the woods with our tent, surrounded by pines, and still had amenities like running water and a close parking lot :)

Such a cute place! We had site #3, which feels secluded enough, but is very close to the bathroom and a short walk from the shower and sink (where there's an electric kettle and coffee/tea making facilities for those that need it). Little touches like the hammock, flowers and tablecloth on the table, fire-making accessories, and cute wooden table and chairs by the tent pad make it extra special. Navarro Beach and Redwoods are also just a short drive away.

For my 30th birthday, my husband and I stayed at La Luna Magic and it was like a dream. From the beautiful drive through the Redwoods, to the quaint secluded campsite, everything was perfect. The sites were very well maintained, and I loved the fire pits with seating already set up around them. We had the site with the lounge chairs, and in the evenings, we would lie back and stare up at the stars. The hosts were great too!! Very friendly and courteous, while still respecting our desire for some alone time. We knew that if we needed anything at all they were only a short walk away. We took the short drive down to the coast and the views were truly breathtaking. Everything about our weekend and stay at La Luna was exactly what we wanted and needed and we are looking forward to many more weekends here in the future!!

This space was so serene and beautiful. The host was also incredibly kind and helpful and welcoming (and his little girl was the icing on the cake--adorable!) I was visiting friends in Oakland and this was their idea and I was so happy to get to experience La Luna campsite. Thank you for an escape from real life and reality--it was much needed.

We had a wonderful time during our short stay at La Luna Magic Deluxe. Amanda and Chris have put a lot of thought and hard work into their beautiful property and guest experience. Chris met us and took the time to give us great recommendations for local kayaking spots and things to do around the area. The campsite was clean, spacious, and tranquil. It was a great spot for our first camping trip with our baby—the full camping experience with some much appreciated creature comforts. Hope to go back again.
