Stunning, Wild Ocean View Ranch perched between the 700 and 900 ft. level overlooking the big blue pacific ocean with wide open expansive panoramic views reaching all the way from Pt. Reyes, the Farallon Islands, down towards Pescadero and Santa Cruz coast as well as up to skyline summit. A hilltop property with over 200 acres, containing a diverse range of terrain and location options, old growth cypress forests, eucalyptus forests, cabins and barns from the 1800's, multi layered views of redwood forests, mountains, ridge lines, ponds and wildlife. Access roads, parking, turn arounds, electrical, water, high speed internet, office on request, and modern amenities combined with the spectacular natural setting make this the ideal location for shooting stills, film, video and drone footage. Shooting with drones could not be more ideal with drop offs on all sides of the property and no restrictions. This is a show-up and shoot property enabling an expedited shoot without all the time consuming hoops to jump through. As former production assistants in the film and photo business were excited about every shoot that comes to our property - we also have intuitive and experiential knowledge of how to help your shoot run smooth. We're here to help in every way possible and have abundant resources at the property in order to optimize our assistance. Were excited to share our dream and our property, working together and having fun!
All rentals include set up and clean up time. No smoking on property. Depending on shoot specifics additional insurance may be required. Please inquire for details about staffing/site rep. Clean up and trash must be deposed of off site.
This property exceeded our expectations in every way. We worked mostly with drones and the property seems to have been designed for this type of shooting. Crazy good views in all directions and multiple launch areas including a 60x30 ft. asphalt pad for staging and electrical hook up. It offered our crew a hassle free huge private property with multiple different location options and over 220 acres. Having such a large private property was a huge relief and made our life easy. It offered tons of flexibility and was super easy to work with. Mateo really made this one of our favorite shoots. We utilized his small 4x4 kawasaki mule which aside from being incredibly useful was lots of fun! The level of intuitive support we received from Mateo was incredible. He is certainly one of the most helpful site reps we have ever had and will recommend his ranch to everyone we know. We have already booked for another shoot in October.
What an unbelievable place to film! Mateo was the best host - super communicative and went absolutely above and beyond when it came to helping us on the shoot day. It's a filmmakers dream - private property with looks that can feature several different climates, forests and even some cool abandoned structures which make for great film backdrops. There is ample parking for a full crew and the access was easy from SF - even for all our trucks and production vehicles. Would highly recommend for any outdoor film shoots - already thinking about booking for a future one we have on the docket. Thank you Mateo for making it such a success!
