Join us to host your next getaway at the beautiful Moon Crest Valley Ranch. A perfect spot for intimate get togethers that immerse you in nature and offer breathtaking views and countless activities on over 45 acres. This is a magical spot for our family and we can’t wait to share it with yours. You will be the exclusive campers on the property after booking and the owners will reside in their house. Potential activities on site include Private Hiking Trails, Breathtaking Ocean Views, Bocce Ball, Wiffle Ball, Golf Chipping, Soccer, and more... Guests are responsible for bringing their own camping gear. Of note, the main campsite is 1/2 mile hike from parking and has a portable camping toilet setup. One of our favorite spaces is the barn area which has a fire pit, multiple seating areas with views, an oversized picnic table, bocce ball, a grill and even a TV. This is a must hangout spot during the evenings for many guests before they hike back up to the campsite to retire for the night. There is also a portable toilet at the barn for guest convenience. Moon Crest Valley Ranch is located less than 10 minutes from the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay and 15 minutes from scenic Main Street Half Moon Bay. We are also only 1/2 mile away from the Purisima Creek Redwoods Preserve Trailhead that has an additional 30+ miles of gorgeous trails to explore. Bring your hiking shoes or bike!

We had an amazing time at Brendan’s place! There were so many activities to do on the property and Brendan was very accommodating in carting our stuff up to the campsite. The views were beautiful and I would definitely recommend to others looking for a weekend getaway from the city.

Branden is an awesome host. Was very responsive to all our requests. The hang out spot had games and a barbecue grill which made it very convenient for our dinner. The campsite is very well maintained, had great view of the surrounding and full of activities. Thank you Branden for hosting us.

Dreamy Forest Hilltop Summer Camp
Brendan's property is magical! We had a really nice time staying there, unfortunately it was too short! I would like to go back for a few days and really take advantage of all the fun activities and accommodations! Brendan and his family are exceedingly gracious and accommodating. A few things of note: - the camping area (also where the mini baseball diamond is in the photos) is about a 10 or 15 minute (beautiful and pretty steep) hike up from the main hangout / picnic area - Brendan is awesome and will cart your gear to and fro with his ATV buggy thing - there are goats, they are friendly, if you ask nicely you can hang out with them - this is a highlight! - definitely stay more than one night so you can really enjoy it! - the views from the camp area are absolutely stunning, you won't want to leave! - it's pretty cool how remote it feels and only 50 minutes from San Francisco We did a short supported bike tour down the coast and this was the first stop along the way and it was an absolute dream! Works kind of perfectly for bike glamping. I'll definitely be staying here again. Real summer camp vibes!

Fantastic place for a group!
The hospitality was incredible from start to finish. Brendan and his family have a truly unique property that can accommodate most sized groups with amble opportunities to recreate and enjoy your surroundings. Very impressed with our stay.
