We loved our stay at Bonnie's! The place is beautiful and quiet, and a great location. The flush toilet and warm shower are a real bonus. We'd definitely go back.

We have never traveled to this part of California before. It is quite remote and beautiful. Bonnie has a bit of paradise and shared her beautiful property with us. We followed Bonnie’s recommendations and visited the local winery and nearby wood craftsman’s shop. This location is only 10 mins from the coast and lots of trails. Thank you. We look forward to visiting again.

This place is definitely a retreat! In the middle of the woods. You will get a feeling of remoteness here. Bonnie was great with communication and welcomed us with recommendations of where to visit

Quiet and spacious property
We had a wonderful stay for two nights in a camper van. Bonnie was made us feel at home on her property, even bringing us a fresh fish stew one for dinner one night! The camping area is separated from the main house by a small stream and a row of trees, so it felt quiet and secluded. Amenities include an indoor toilet and shower and a picnic table. Beautiful stars at night and good tree coverage for shade during the day. Just make sure to bring lots of mosquito repellant and an insect net to protect yourself at night!

Great location near Shelter Cove
Not only did we have access to a nice outdoor shower (solar-heated) but our hostess even offered us to stay in a little cabin nearby, which has running water and a sink. We were treated so kindly. It was heart-warming and we would recommend to anyone to go without hesitation! As a bonus, it's very close to Shelter Cove, a very nice place on the coast.
