On a gorgeous Wednesday morning at dawn, we decided to take a fresh getaway just outside the hustle and bustle of the city of Los Angeles in Malibu. Generally, Malibu is known for it's posh beaches, luxurious homes, and upscale beachside living. However, we wanted to dive deep into the Malibu hills to go glamping in a very special Malibu yurt.

I know you're probably thinking, "What exactly is glamping, anyway?" Glamping is where unforgettable experience in nature and luxury meet. It allows people to experience the natural world without having to sacrifice comfort and amenities. Read more about it at Glamping Hub.

However, it's much more than just a glorified tent. Many glamping locations allow you to experience unique lodgings across the globe like sleeping in glass housing in the Northern Lights. We were lucky to find this yurt location within driving distance.

This gorgeous one-of-a-kind yurt is nestled in a beautiful 17-acre tenderly cared for property named Great Spirits Ranch. Not only do you get a full 360 degree view of the Ojai mountains to the ocean, you also are fully immersed in the peace and quiet of nature.

For those of you who are animal lovers, the property has over 50 rescue animals that roam openly and are completely docile. They're also extremely adorable and love to eat carrots (bring extras).

Also, the yurt is equipped with a fire pit, heater, and electricity. If you really want to stay connected, they even provide wifi across the entire ranch for an extra charge.

There's also a beautiful patio where you can enjoy your food and the peaceful quiet of the Malibu night in nature. You may even get a chance to meet your neighbors in the teepee a few hundred feet away from the yurt!

Overall Rating


In the end, we absolutely recommend this location for any first time glampers or those with a little more experience. Debbie, the site owner, is an absolute delight with so much knowledge and respect for her ranch. She lives on the property walking distance, so it's very safe.

It's a gorgeous site that you'd absolutely need to see to believe!
