My boyfriend and I stayed at Treebones for one night as we drove from San Francisco to Santa Barbara. I have great things to say about Treebones, however I do feel like one night was enough. The accommodation (the Yurt), especially the bed, was extremely comfortable and very warm. We had a partial ocean view room, and it was a beautiful sight to wake up too. We arrived just after sunset and easily checked into our Yurt. Dinner at the restaurant was nice(but not cheap, as expected). The menu was slightly reduced due to a lack of stock but otherwise it was yum. The noise level at night/in the morning was expected – if you are looking too sleep in for hours, I would suggest you stay somewhere else, because you will be woken up by others. My two “complaints” about Treebones would have to be the shared bathrooms and also the breakfast. I was aware that we would be sharing bathrooms, however, given the price we paid, I would have expected the bathrooms to be cleaner. I am an avid camper, and I was very surprised to see a cleaning schedule that has the bathroom cleaned very two hours in the morning (every 3 after after 8.45am). Not really good enough. When I had my shower, it was extremely quick given the amount of hair (not mine!) covering the drain. Also, the breakfast needs to be attended to more regularly – even in an eco-resort, no wants to be making their breakfast while swiping away flies – especially not inside. But these were minor things that were fairly easily overlooked because it was otherwise a fun stay. Albeit a bit of a “gimmick” I would recommend a night at Treebones.
