Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is romantic.
Our land is unique in the variety of vegetation: pines, oaks, palms, citrus, chaparral. We are conveniently centrally located to many daily adventures. The Chumash painted cave is near by as well as the rock playground Lizards Mouth. We are on the old stage coach trail, and only five minutes from Cold Springs Tavern.

Thanks so much Zela for hosting us! We had a beautiful girls weekend in the glamping dome, which was fun and comfortable. It's truly a great setup. :)

Santa Barbara - Sky Mountain Dome
Fantastic geodesic dome!
Extraordinary location, beautifully accommodated. Be aware, getting in is a little tricky of you have the wrong vehicle but the location is absolutely worth the hike!

Dome with amazing vibes
This dome is amazing. It’s setup so nice and has such a good vibe. Zela has done an awesome job with the lighting and making every part of it comfy. I love the outdoor bathroom and shower but I understand that isn’t for everyone. The best part is once you turn the lights off you can see outside and it feels like you’re sleeping under the stars. Great host and amazing dome.

Santa Barbara - Sky Mountain Dome
We were quite underwhelmed by our stay. If you struggle with cold, allergies, freeway noises, or mud, think twice. I wouldn’t have minded these things if it didn’t cost as much a standard hotel in Santa Barbara proper. The unit is full of fur. If you’re sensitive to pet dander, this is NOT the place for you. They allow pets and you can tell. My partner and I are pet sitters so we’re used to being around many animals, but we were sneezing and stuffed up the entire time we were in the dome. The fur and dust has clearly been accumulating, and the space could use a good cleaning. Overall, it felt like we were in a big tent with some holes in it and we were camping by a freeway. While they do provide a space heater, you should bring warm clothing anyways. Not only can you feel the cold drafty air seep into the dome, you can hear every car struggle to climb up 154, the mountain freeway right next door. It’s a steep mountain so the cars rev their engines going up. As cars pass, headlights will flash onto the ceiling of the dome. Bring noise cancelling headphones (concert earplugs weren’t enough for us), eye mask, and warm clothes for sleeping. We’ve stayed in many domes & this was the least insulated. We would’ve been happy paying half the price for this space for what it is. It just seemed too low effort and quirky for our liking. It’s hard to justify staying here as it was the comfort level of camping with the cost of a midrange hotel. C’est la gentrification :,)

Santa Barbara - Sky Mountain Dome
This place was so unique! Had so many friends ask where I was staying because of how it was built. Definitely coming back once their bigger dome is done with construction in the future! My dogs loved the place more than they love their own home 🫠
