Nestled along a spring fed creek in the beautiful mountains of Santa Barbara. Immerse yourself in the great outdoors while staying cozy in a Yurt, Teepee, or one of our Geo Domes. Each is secluded with a hot shower, propane fire pit, camp kitchen and a comfortable queen bed. Wake up to the sound of the birds chirping and the creek rippling. Hike to our very own 30' ft waterfall where you can take a dip, lay out and catch some sunshine. The trail is rugged so be ready to boulder and use your hands in some places. Our wood burning hot tub is freshly filled every time, and right along the creek for a natural hot/cold plunge experience. We also offer morning yoga, and relaxing massages for a fully rejuvenating experience.

Glorious, private, nature retreat in Santa Barbara!

1 site · Lodging11 acres · Santa Barbara, CA
PURE MAGICAL WELL LOVED LAND & YURT off secluded gated private drive. Extremely serene, quiet setting with peaceful gorgeous energy, green growing things and fine air. This stunning 11 acre property graced with oak, pepper, sycamore and walnut trees is surrounded by private trails, more land and national forest. Santa Barbara is stunning place to be ALL year round.. summer and spring obviously but fall and winter are equally gorgeous and kind weather wise (fall/ winter my personal favorite when the colors are extra deep and vibrant) - this land. is.... a true expression of the beauty of Santa Barbara being within the mountains and minutes from the ocean, half hour from the Santa Ynez back country, minutes to the beach and epic mountain top trails.I wish to say before going into the description... how SO very sweet and satisfying it's been for me to share this special land with the amazing people coming through making life memories.. eloping or having their first romantic get away after having children etc.. I think because I truly LOVE, love opening my home and land up to others, it makes for a very different kind of experience energetically. It's been a real honor for me to be hostess! The incredible thing about this place is that it's a mere few miles to uptown, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. We're also just 30 minutes from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang (wine country). The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land!Again.. to say... how I so love having people here.. part of the unfolding story of this special dwelling. I've marveled and appreciated so much how everyone has treated this place with honor, respect.. all of us taking good care with it so it's here for everyone's enjoyment. Makes my heart glad!!I am usually present on the land in my "own neck of the woods" in my barn (so I'm around if needed by text), but it's very uncommon for people to cross paths unless they are seeking it out others at common spaces.. otherwise it's rare, private and pretty vast on this 11 acre piece of paradise. Usually I will greet you briefly, warmly so I can answer any questions and then again because there's so much space, there is rarely any overlap. A very private, serene experience.The photographs... I have to say, DO NOT GIVE JUSTICE to this home and land. You'll know what I mean when you get here...the feel of this place, the stillness, the open, natural setting, nurturing, safe feeling. It's a very special zone in which to unravel the nervous system, revise and renew. Hope to share it with you!PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in staying, first step will be to connect voice to voice by phone as I love to take great care with each and every person that visits this amazing land.. a soulful hello, answer questions and be sure the offering is the right fit! Also, for reviews, you can search for the yurt on airbnb where you'll see near 100 5 STAR reviews.. which will give you a much deeper feel for the experience that is had here. Thanks for reading!Learn more about this land:The Yurt is a very private, soulful, sexy, romantic space. Very different from being in a normal house structure. It's like you're camping in a way.. hearing the sounds of outside, of the wind.. but then you're in this very luxurious extraordinarily dreamy realm. For those of you who don't know, a yurt is a round structure with wood floors, a round skylight at the top of the dome and very heavy canvas that can withstand any weather... a most interesting architecture. It's very warm and soulful. The hillside where it resides provides beautiful trees and sweetest feel of openness.. a small trail that leads up to a 2 seater lounge swing overlooking the entire mountain range of Santa Barbara begins just outside the door. Amazing surround sound system for your dancing pleasure. Also available DVD player and WI. No internet. This is for those who wish to really recalibrate... though most smart phones (internet) will function from the sweet spots on the property. I myself are on Verizon.. have no issue using phone and internet from my smart phone.Amazing redwood bath house exclusive to the yurt which includes an amazing outside shower looking out to the expanse of the hillside. Super private!Pool and hot tub  resides on the top tier of the land, not near any dwellings.. gorgeous day and night. More about the yurt. The space is very light and open. A complete living room/ bedroom/ eating area all in one. French doors lead out to a private deck. Perfect for stargazing or just laying in the sweet sun. The land surrounding is an extension of the living space.Hear and watch the beautiful birds.. hawks, crows and small singing ones.. howls of distant coyotes by night and the occasional sighting of a bob cat.The yurt in short is just an epic place to dwell recalibrate, renew in both nature and luxury. The setting is ideal for two adults or one solo soul looking to retreat. There is also plenty of land around the yurt and on other parts of the property in which to camp.... so this is a potentially amazing place for more visitors as well. Now, there is no kitchen inside the yurt. (small fridge is outside under the stairs). Keeps the motors away and the sounds of nature in the forefront. I am pretty much an extraordinary cook specializing in bringing forth the incredible local organic year round produce.... I had the thought to offer to guests (by request and if I'm available, additional cost and if my schedule allows) a meal or two which could be brought up to the yurt or eaten down at the main house where we can hang out while I cook for you! I hate to say it because there are some pretty fantastic restaurants in town.. but I would be VERY surprised if you found food as good as mine. :) Something about home cooking by someone who worships food and the highest quality ingredients.. equal parts healthy and gourmet. OR, I certainly can point you in the right direction if eating out is what you prefer! BUT either way!! EGGS! Here on the land, I have 12 wonderful hens who lay daily in the non cold months of the year. Happy to send you off with fresh ones to take home with you! Also tons of fruit from the land to share depending on the time of year.Ahh... what else? The sun is supreme here, the air quality medicinal and the weather has a habit of being a perfectly kind 73 degrees and sunny. Hang out by day or by moon with the countless places to dwell.P.s. OTHER OFFERINGS: I have chickens who are fed very well laying all organic epic EGGS! When they are laying (not so much in the winter months. chickens will take a break when it's "cold")... I will be showering you with them for your breakfast making pleasure (hard boiled or you can take some home!). I also provide organic whole bean coffee and tea.Also of course the best natural shampoo, conditioner and soap!

An old Native American Village was once on this property. It is said that an agent supplied the allotment of meat and beans at which they had a B-B-Q and all the Natives died from poison beans except for one girl. Some said you can hear the cries of women and child at night.

Discover the best yurt glamping and camping near Santa Barbara guide


The seaside city of Santa Barbara has long been known for its Spanish Colonial architecture, numerous area wineries, and easy access to some of the prettiest coastline in California. While plenty of people opt to stay in hotels in this swanky city, those wishing to get a little closer to nature can find lots of fantastic alternatives in and around Santa Barbara. While many SB campers choose campsites in the hills above town or along the Santa Ynez River, those wanting a few more creature comforts—such as proper beds, heaters, and maybe a kitchenette—might opt for an overnight glamping stay in a yurt rental. Most Santa Barbara yurts are set on private land without any other campsites in the area, making them ideal choices for quiet, romantic getaways.
