What a magical experience! Peter was so communicative and kind.....he even helped us bring our equipment up to the site! We had the privilege of seeing an evening show at the gorgeous outdoor theatre....it was phenomenal! definitely book tickets ahead of time to get the full experience. This spot is medicine for the soul. Thanks for everything, Peter!

This property is so beautiful! But it’s a challenging campsite. As the owner says there are lots of stairs leading up to the site and it’s not for the faint of heart. The bathroom is very far and there’s no access to water up at the tent site. Otherwise the view is beautiful and it’s very peaceful up there which is in sharp contrast with the busy road down below. The car traffic and noise was intense and it was nonstop all night. To me this place is not ideal for camping but it definitely has its own perks.

Had a lovely stay at the tentsite over Topanga. Situated high above the beautiful and quaint Theatricum Botanicum it is definitely a steep hard walk up to the site but feels bealthy to get your heart rate up doing it and the view up top is awesome. Pete was a great host telling us some of the history when he met us to show us the site and was available on the phone if anything cropped up during the stay like advice on local nature. It is situated a short car ride from busy Topanga Village and the ocean with great restaurants, and a short walk, being mindful of fast moving cars, alongside route 27 to a couple of good breakfast spots. Highly recommend. Juat hope it'll be available for our next trip :)

Peter was super easy to communicate with and made our stay easy! If we didn’t already have other plans we would have gone to one of their plays! The theater looked absolutely beautiful. The campsite has an amazing view too!

Gorgeous spot. I would recommend it for folks who do not have a ton of stuff as there’s a climb to get to the campsite. Beautiful views! The host, Peter, is friendly and accommodating and easy to contact. We were able to fit both a 4-person and a 3-person tent inside the tipi frame.

Loved waking early to the roosters and humming birds, the aroma of native plants, the orchestra of birds and the sunrise painting silohuettes of trees on my tent. Lovely place to be in nature near the beach. Nourishing for my spirit and imagination. Good exercise getting up and down the mountain!

Perfect getaway spot to truly unplug and enjoy the beauty of Topanga. I stayed for two nights to do a self guided meditation retreat. Not much else to do up there except enjoy the view. Although you do get some road noise, it’s a great place for some solitude with no distractions. It’s very simple. Just a flat spot with some teepee poles and a couple of chairs. That’s literally it. There is a bathroom quite a walk down hill.

The camp spot is in a very beautiful location, and Peter is a great host. Just make sure to keep in mind that you will have to carry all of your supplies up 300 stairs, bring a backpack for your stuff!
