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! $200 base price is for two people. All additional  day or night campers are $75 a day/night.   *****LOOK***** BE ADVISED, at times, the property has events with upwards of 100 people. These events are not in your space, nor near you, but you will see people walking around and will hear music in the distance until 10:15 pm. In 2022 ALL Saturdays and MANY Sundays will have these events We are a farm on the beach just North of Santa Barbara and Goleta, Ca.

Serenity by the beach
What a fabulous spot! We really enjoyed the serenity of this place with a short walk to the ocean and magical sunrises and sunsets. The host was very kind, helpful and responsive. We hope to come back again soon!

We loved the private beach farm. Bathroom and shower were great, pizza oven was a bonus. The greenhouse was so cute. The beach was amazing. My friend even saw dolphins one morning. Fred and Jinger were super accommodating. Thanks for sharing your slice of paradise!

Exquisitely artful and rustic
It’s a privilege to stay at this HipCamp on the coast near Santa Barbara. What was once a huge orchid growing greenhouse operation is now an artful HipCamp on a preserved ranch along the coast. The space is one enormous green house among many full of diverse succulent plants. Your neighbors are birds, goats, chickens, a Turkey, an alpaca and a very friendly cat. There is a pizza oven and sink in the greenhouse along with purified water and picnic tables, string lights and extension cord for charging all your devices. There is an outhouse with running water, sink, toilet and warm water shower with an exquisite view of the ocean. No electricity here, so pack a lantern. We parked our campervan nearby and slept there using the greenhouse for cooking and handling out. It’s is dusty and the spiders also consider it home, so don’t expect clean perfection. It is camping, but in a joyfully whimsical space that encourages creativity and exploration. We feel lucky to have access to the place, will be back and will tell all our friends
