If your family is still looking for unique travel ideas for the summer season, there’s good news. That’s because there’s a unique opportunity to stay at an alpaca ranch that kids will most definitely enjoy and still talk about for years to come. It’s an Airbnb and the best part is that it’s only $74 a night.
While a lot of moms and dads prefer to spend their time off at the beach or take culture and city breaks with the family, others want something that is a little bit different and of course, something that will be the social media envy of all your followers. Luckily, there’s an Alpaca Ranch in California that is allowing guests to spend a long weekend at a working-alpaca ranch and organic farm in Paso Robles, California.
According to Country Living, the rental is a private room that overlooks the scenic Capaldi Ranch. Not only will your kids have an opportunity to hang out with the alpacas, but parents will also get to relax and take in all of the great views that the property has to offer.
Here’s an added bonus: the ranch is also home to plenty more animals that your kids will be able to check out during your stay. From horses to dogs to chickens and even cats, guests can help feed the animals and participate in other ranch activities. Kids will have so much fun during their stay that there’s a good chance they will even forget that their electronic tablets and screens exist.
The Airbnb listing has also been a huge hit online, too. "Daphne's home is a few miles North of the Paso Robles downtown, and close by to restaurants and wineries," one reviewer said. "Expect a clean, lovely place to stay, with fantastic views of the surrounding hills and valleys, and a few friendly four-footed friends who are perfectly willing to let you share the views with them."
There’s even an added bonus: guests also have the option to spend the night in an on-site camper, which sleeps up to five people. Families looking to really get a one-of-a-kind ranch experience will have the choice of either renting the private room or a full-functioning camper (equipped with a private kitchen) for the night.
Seeing what kind of great deal this is, parents wanting to make memories on this one-of-a-kind Alpaca Ranch are going to have to act fast. Bookings are just about full for the summer season, which means everyone is looking to get a little up close and personal with these unique animals.
