Site 1 - Poolside Campsite
Be weary
The hosts seemed friendly. They went over the rules with all of us as we arrived, told us we could stay longer than check out, and let us switch one of our campsites for a different one with more level ground There is a fee for extra people and cars. We paid 2 sites, had 4 cars. When we arrived, we were told to pay the fees in cash and not the platform (big mistake. The host later demanded an extra $270 as there was no record that we had already paid in cash. Lesson learned - always go through the app so there is a paper trail) There were chairs by the pool (although you aren’t allowed to move them at all), a sink, a bathroom, and a shower The hosts hung out with us a lot, swam with us, had a plate of food that we provided and cooked, and shared our birthday cake The hosts claimed after the fact that we broke a chair, which we did not. Wouldn’t that have come up while they were hanging out with us? No quiet hours are posted anywhere. After 10 we turned the music off, but we were laughing a lot playing a board game and cards, so they asked us i think twice to be quieter so we went to bed at 11. If you’re a small family it’s fine I guess. I understand small businesses, but there is no excuse to lie to extort extra money from customers. Eve’s review is also correct that it is run down. Awful for large groups. We went for a chill time to BBQ and swim, and are being accused of partying & breaking things

Site 2 - Poolside Campsite
misunderstanding, and bad campsite
About my experience in the place I can say the place is located in an amazing spot really near to the bay area, and the facilities like bathroom, pool shower and clean area for dishes are wonderful, Ruth and her son are wonderful hosts, and they give us coffee in the morning, they are so friendly. What I can say for the site of the camping they are not right for camping, they need more maintenance or at least made the grown flat, the floor is unbalanced. You feel sleeping in a hill. They really have great potential, but they really need work in their place. rules in the place are not clear, and because the host is so friendly didn´t say the things clear as need be. They are requesting extra charge (270.00) because we stay longer in the common areas. when we empty the sites at the right time and be in the pool with previous authorization by the host, but even she was agreed, they are asking me for pay more what that never happened in other campsites. sad for Hipcamp because I was having amazing experiences until now. Definity not a place to get away to the bay Area. I will not suggest.
