Dome Asylum, Hippie Homestead

· Ramona, San Diego, California
1.14 acres hosted by Dawn S.
The Dome Asylum hippie homestead features several permaculture ideas expressed throughout the property, like our natural pool and tub, aquaponic and keyhole gardens and more. Wylie moved here in 2008 and brought all of the cactus onto the property with him. The Dome Asylum gets it's name from the shape of the main house and the from the sanctuary we offer from everyday stress. The moment you step through the gate, you feel the retreat-like vibe of the place. The Dome Asylum, hippie homestead, is a geodesic domicile built in 1986. The Dome Asylum is focused on sustainability. Indeed, we see the property as our own little, just-over-an-acre, eco-park. In addition to the aquaponic and keyhole gardens, the Dome Asylum features several cactus gardens, a meditation trail, and a natural pool/tub. The plants and fish in the pool are just one of the many pleasant discoveries you will encounter during your stay. Pitch your tent along the meditation trail in the Dome Asylum's front cactus garden. Nestled into the corner of the property with it's own well water spigot. A short walk to the shared outdoor bath in the natural poolside patio.  The Dome is about an hour from San Diego beaches and even closer to popular hiking at Mt. Woodson and Potato Chip Rock.  Several cactus gardens, fire sculptures, art, natural pool, horse shoe pits, tree swing, free range chickens, aquaponic and keyhole gardens, fruit trees

Natural Poolside Cabana
Such a cool oasis with some many touches of art and creativity. Truly a labor of love that I feel there and would love to come back and enjoy again. Loved the fire next to the cabana and the koi in the pool.

Dome Asylum Nomad Trailer
This place was magical. We had originally scheduled the bungalow but dawn contacted me to suggest that we switch the the trailer because of how cold it was going to get during our stay… I’m really glad we did. She worked with us when there was some confusion with the website reservation! They were very helpful and it was beautiful

Natural Poolside Cabana
The place created by the host was magnificent; I received more than I imagined And I thanked the host for sharing, “natural poolside Cabana” on hipcamp, so I could find this getaway from city living. 4 me, the poolside cabana was what I was looking for; a space to feel relaxed enough to create art & stuff & sleep outdoors comfortably. Much gratitude
