Cute little trailer on a 10 acre farm property. Located just off of scenic highway 1 on a historic property is your very own private campsite. Deck, fire pit, and outdoor shower available. You will be close to world class surfing, hiking, and beaches. Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur are close by as well. Our property was a historic winery back in the 1800's and is now a charming bed and breakfast. Great for up to 2 guests and one dog. Pets are allowed with notice at time of booking!Pull right up to the deck of your private campsite located on our private 10 acre estate. The property was once the site of one of the first wineries in Santa Cruz County. The trailer has heat, A/C, toilet a small kitchen and bathroom and outdoor shower. There is also a queen size memory foam mattress, a dinette for eating, working, etc. and a Smart TV with wifi. The deck has chairs and a gas firepit. Nisene Marks Reedwoods State Park is a quick 2 miles away with amazing hiking and mountain bike trails. Capitola Village is 3 exits away up highway 1 and Carmel and Monterey are about 45 minutes south. Note: the queen size mattress is a queen RV style, which is 73 inches long so if you’re over 6 feet tall, you may need to fold out the dinette bed and sleep slightly diagonally.

This is a great HipCamp site with a great Host Derek. Derek knows hospitality and has thought of all you might need for a comfortable stay. The trailer is well-stocked....even some games to play. If you are in need of groceries there are 3 grocery stores 1.5 to 3 "easy to get to" miles away. Also close for some refreshing hikes, running or mountain biking is The Forest of Nisene Marks state Park. And of course many beaches. Derek instructions were easy to follow. He'll just check in with you to make sure all's well....other then that you have your privacy. Again. Great Host. Great Hipcamp site.

Lovely little retreat
The camp host was good at communicating instructions. It was not necessary to check in and check out and that was very convenient. Everything was clean, the bedding was nice. The outdoor shower was a plus and the bird song in the orchard surrounding the trailer was an unexpected surprise. We would like to visit again!

The trailer is located on a beautiful old winery that’s also a location for weddings. The location was stunning with greenery everywhere. We were able to bring our reactive dog and had no issues. The outdoor shower is private, spacious, and very comfortable to use. Everything we needed was provided including sheets, towels, and soap. Derek was a great host and immediately addressed some water leaking issues. Highly recommend this location!

Derek’s camper was perfect for my husband & I & our dog. The land is beautiful & very well kept. We loved this area because it was right in between so many of our destinations like Monterey & Santa Cruz. We will definitely stay here again in the future.
