Welcome to Skyfarm Yurt. Located on it's own private slice of Paradise Hill, 10 minutes from Downtown LA but a million miles away. Come experience an urban farm and lose yourself in exquisite "Glamping".

The space
Come be a part of our well chronicled Skyfarm experience. Our home has been written up in numerous publications and now that we’ve bought the property across the street and built it into a private oasis, you can get a taste of our particular brand of bohemian country-in-the-city lifestyle. We’re an urban farm near downtown Los Angeles. We’ve got abundant gardens and farm animals. Skyfarm Yurt offers simple living with amazing views, abundant fresh air, a full outdoor kitchen, a clawfoot garden solar powered bathtub with decadently hot water, a glamping bathroom with flush toilet and rainbird spa shower, and the opportunity to interface with our friendly pygmy goats, ‘Nilla and Lincoln, our giant tortoise, Rex, our pig, Trudy, and our friendly chickens.

Skyfarm Yurt is a new 20 foot diameter Pacific Yurt with all the upgrades. It’s one large circular room in the manner of a traditional Mongolian nomadic dwelling but with big windows and a chic white interior. There’s a King sized bed and two single mattress that double as a divan. The Yurt is insulated but it’s still a temporary structure and can be cold in winter (that’s why we have a gorgeously restored 1920’s French enamel stove that we brought back from Copenhagen) and warm in the summer (fans provided). There’s almost always a breeze at night up here on the hill. LA is a desert and it normally cools off at dusk.

We've got strong Wifi and a full kitchen with fridge, microwave, cooktop, and toaster oven. The kitchen and bathroom are exclusively for you.

Guest access
This is an Urban Farm experience and one of the perks is that you can interact with the animals here. Our pygmy goats were bottle fed and are as friendly as puppies. In the mornings and evenings we come down to feed and water the animals via a separate entrance. You’re welcome to be involved.

But bear in mind, there will be chicken poop along the walkway and the goats will hear you and might endeavor to get your attention. Our land here is one big garden of Eden and as such you will encounter natural things like lizards, insects, ants (oh, the ants, don’t invite them to dinner, keep your food tidy) and the occasional barn mouse. You’ll often hear a chorus of coyotes in the night howling back at a passing siren (earplugs provided). The property is fully fenced so you’re totally safe. Paradise Hill is one of the last open spaces in Los Angeles and the experience here is unparalleled.

We keep the Yurt immaculate for you but the whole point here is to be living in and amongst nature, while being minutes aways from all the best the City has to offer.

Other things to note
Our listing specifies 4 people but it's really best for 2 adults, or two adults and kids. There is one parking spot for guests and no parking for visitors. Our listing is open to families with kids (because we’ve traveled the world with our kids and believe it’s the coolest thing in the world to do) however there are many steps and hazards for small tykes. Parents of toddlers might find it challenging to monitor.

Please book the exact number of people in your reservation that are planning to stay. Extra guests that are not on the reservation will result in immediate termination of stay without refund.

The yurt is up a hill at the end of a dirt road. It's definitely an old country road(!)and that's what creates the feeling of having left the city far behind. However, it is just 10 minutes from Downtown LA.

During your stay
Our house is up the steps and across the cul-de-sac. We prefer self check in but are available by text if you need us. We will enter the barnyard via separate entrance to deal with the animals but will never enter your space unless you need us.
