This is an incredibly historic site in Santa Barbara history. 2 tribes of Chumash Indians lived here for 10,000 years. This is where Spain landed and began colonizing the area. In the 1950's and 60's, this was the site of the World's largest orchid farm. There is a book called The Royal Rancho, if you are a history buff. We are a farm on the beach just North of Santa Barbara and Goleta, Ca. You will camp in a historic, glass greenhouse with incredible ocean views. Inside is a cob pizza oven that works awesome. (Bring your own firewood),,, a place to pitch tents and tiny artistic structures to explore. You will have a private bath and shower (Primitive, no electricity, but the hot shower has the best view in the world of any shower!) Bring your own toiletries and whatnot.  Private beach access from our property. We have a barnyard with a multitude of farm animals. Limited electricity in greenhouse (A couple of extension chords). The fire ban is ONLY for open campfires. The pizza oven and YOUR bbq or propane flame is fine.   If you are camping during the rain, be advised, it gets wet in the greenhouse. It's an antique after all!

Holiday Weekend
Found myself alone over the Christmas holiday and decided to spend the weekend at Fred and Jinger's. Wow! What a privilege to be given a quiet space filled with plants and an ocean view. Fragrant plants surrounded the exterior space, including a rosemary hedge. The cob oven kept me cozy and warm, and turned out great roasted vegetables and pizza. (Do your research how to do this successfully before you go.) Very little light pollution for excellent star-gazing. Great cell phone reception (Verizon). Beach is fantastic. A very unique experience overall. If you want to use the little structures in the greenhouse I suggest bringing a broom and something to wipe the furniture down with. Bathroom was clean and shower was hot...but bring flip flops for extra comfort.

Very unique camping experience. This property was so amazing and interesting. We loved spending time on the beach and in our beautiful area which included a huge greenhouse with a wood fired pizza oven. What a great experience!

Overall we had a great trip and the ranch is located near the beach in a quiet rural part of Santa Bárbara. We could easily walk to the beach and also enjoy the shade structure there. The old green houses were quaint with tons of growing plants and open to views and breezes. Our trailer easily fit in the space provided. It was extremely relaxing and quiet.

Unique hipcamp and a special location in an area we love. Highlight was private beach--it is next level! Give yourself time to do some beach walking. Greenhouse is wild, rustic, and ungroomed but with lots of charm. Pizza oven was fun, bring wood, none was provided. There was water in sparklets type bottle provided for drinking. A power outlet was located near pizza oven. A sink with running water was available (to wash dishes etc.) Trash can was also provided. Restroom and shower were good. We had the hottest weather of the year and still loved it (swimming in the calm, glassy waves, and cool showers helped). We saw so many animals of all types over the 3 days (wild, domestic, oceanic). Jinger was great: friendly and good communication.

Beach camping with cute animals!
Absolutely loved “camping” here. What a beautiful, serene location! My toddler loved the beach, the animals, and the little huts. She didn’t ask for a device for all 3 days we were there! Hope to be able to come back again!

Zen Glamping
Fabulous ‘glamping’ experience. Safe, clean, unique, beautiful! Amazing ocean and celestial views. The pizza oven is very easy to operate. Be sure to bring foil, olive oil and real dough (no pillsbary tube stuff, it doesn’t wood in open fire). Surf break a mile walk up the beach. Lovely property we hope to visit again.

Beautiful site! Really conveniently located and so close to the beach! Just be sure to follow their driving instructions and NOT ask their neighbors for directions. The guy who I asked was so incredibly rude and then the rest of the weekend when we would run into him he continued to be equally rude. But other than that, wonderful experience and would really recommend. Adorable camp kitty included :)

THE MOST MAGICAL PLACE ON EARTH
How do I even review this magical place? We asked for an extra night because it broke our hearts to leave!! We have been on a 25-day camping trip and let me tell you that this has been the most amazing, calm, beautiful place we have ever been. No exaggeration. The host met us upon arrival, showed us the ropes, and then we were alone for the rest of our time. You get a camping spot either inside or outside the greenhouse, a flushing toilet, and a hot shower THAT OVERLOOKS THE OCEAN!!!! We showered while watching the cows and the waves. I mean…what else do we have left to achieve in life after this. There was a wedding while we were there, but they didn’t bother us, and it was kind of magical to see the people be married overlooking the ocean and the mountains. We fell asleep both nights listening to the waves and the animals and the soft music from the sweet wedding. If you are concerned with others there during a wedding, I am very fussy and like privacy, and we had zero issues. The greenhouse that you get full run of was just a dream. A dream, I tell you! The greenery, the pizza oven, the space, I just don’t know how to put this into words. This is about as far from our home as we can get, and we’re already trying to figure out how to drag our camper here again next year. The weather is perfect. Oh my…I forgot to mention THE PRIVATE BEACH!!!! We spent hours and hours playing in the water, finding rocks, searching through cool driftwood, and lavishing the solitude.

Greenhouse with a view (& animals!)
What an incredible spot! We loved the open space, the views, the proximity to the beach, the animals, the pizza oven, and so much more. We’ll definitely be back in the future!

Great get away! Beautiful property to explore the beach was very private and less then 10 min walk from the camp site. The greenhouse was amazing and peaceful so nice walking up to all birds sounds! Very close to town( 10 min) but felt totally off the grid. Great place to unplug, definitely recommend and will definitely be back!

Love this place! This was our third time stying here it was exactly what we needed to get some release from the city. Beautiful private beach, garden setting for cooking and lounging, farm animals, evening walks along the ocean and trails above. This gorgeous place soothes the soul and we will definitely be coming back for the fourth time! Thank you Jinger and Fred!

Well the secret is already out and frankly I hope these good people are able to be booked full time as they deserve it. The beauty and peace they are allowing us to take part in is… honestly it feels like stepping into another world. Perfect ambience, incredible privacy, and loving good touches all throughout. I only hope to be able to slide in again sometime in the near future.

It was incredible! The space was clean, the amenities were top notch and the location was perfect. Sunday came around and we had the entire beach to ourselves, not a surfer in sight. I'd recommend getting a lot of wood to work that pizza oven and starting 2 hours or so before. Gotta be very warm! Also, maybe bring a brush to sweep out the oven itself from ash and whatnot. A dream location! My favorite part of the trip was lying in the grass doing nothing. So quiet and peaceful.

The perfect place to stay!
Amazing, I can't wait to go back. We have a few other friends with us and we go to explore the property (which is huge!). Highlights include: - Staying in the greenhouse under the stars - Clay Pizza oven that was great for cooking ( pizza + shashuka) - Walks down to the beach - Feeding the animals - Awesome hosts!!! We can't wait to come back here, it has all the amenities you need to make your experience seamless.
