Guests have their own private entrance to the room and retrieve the key from a lockbox upon arrival, so check-in can be entirely self-executed, but we do try to be home to greet our guests when they arrive. There are two rooms up on Airbnb, so there may be other guests on the property at the same time. Some days, we are at our other home, and so guests sometimes have the property all to themselves. Other days, only one of us is home. On weekends, we are both usually home. If we are not on site, we are always available on our cell phones 24/7 to answer any questions about the property.

The SpaceIt's been described as “heaven on earth," “an architectural gem," and “the best home on the Californian Central coast," and when you visit The Nirvana House and Ranch you immediately know why. Set high on a hilltop in a verdant canyon in Goleta, California and Twenty to thirty minutes north of Santa Barbara, this modern, multi-level dream home not only boasts panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean and Los Padres Mountains, but brings the outdoors in through enormous windows and spacious, flowing rooms. Surrounding the house, is 234 acres of lush foliage, oak groves and large avocado orchards attracting a wealth of wildlife, such as bears, deer, mountain lions, silver foxes, ravens and hawks. The house includes a car-port for 4 cars.. This home is designed for family reunions, get-together's, and entertaining guests and hence the spacious living space. There are two enormous sized, beautiful, iron crafted glass tables in the dining room, that would have no trouble seating up to two dozen family and guests. The roomy, state-of the-art gourmet kitchen with a grand center island is the most popular communal space in the home. Heading from the dining area through the living room,you will find comfortable, black leather couches and chairs and a fireplace. This is the most favored spot to watch both the sunrise and spectacular California sunsets with ocean views. Nearby is the chic bar, designed entirely from scrap metal from construction. On the floor above dining and living area is the cozy master bedroom with its huge balcony with gorgeous views of the garden and canyon below, all the way to the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. The master bathroom has a two person Jacuzzi with shower and double glass bowl sinks. The den adjacent to the master bedroom affords ample room for rest and recreation. Here, just as everywhere throughout the house, walls are adorned with stunning Indian, Egyptian and African artifacts, sculptures and paintings. There is an additional bedroom with 2 single beds with attached bathroom at this level. The circular, theater-style family entertainment area, complete with colorful floor cushions and a big-screen TV is where one can relax, watch TV, movies or play games with family and guests. The most colorful sunsets can be also witnessed from here. Opening up the glass doors to the back patio, a lap pool (pool will be filled after California is out of drought conditions) which provides space to entertain, as does the stone-laden courtyard on the north side of the abode, where a replica of a 4,000-year-old bronze statuette atop a five-tiered fountain has been placed. The largest wedding of 320 persons took place here in the summer of 2002. Leading from the family room is the half moon area of the house, and two additional elevated bedrooms shared bathroom. One of the bedrooms (Lavender) has eastern King bed with a walk in closet. The other one (Sage) has a full bed, also with a walk in closet. Below these bedrooms is the huge exercise room with an 8 person Jacuzzi-Spa. For quiet moments, as well as various cultural ceremonies, guests can escape to the secluded Mediation room atop the peak of a hill behind the main house, from where one takes in incredible vistas of the coast, valley and mountain ranges. In front of this meditation room is a stately globe, carrying the symbols of diverse world religions. The owners live off the main house and the guest house and studio is rented to permanent tenants who are 200 feet away from main house with independent structure and parking. Interaction with guests is as required by the guests at arrival, during their stay and at departure Sleep restfully in pin drop silence (with the back ground noise only of the birds chirping and the frogs croaking during rains) so you can feel renewed in paradise. You will also be just minutes from fine restaurant dining, shopping and walks on the nearby El Capitan State Beach. Gaviota Coast and Santa Barbara are internationally renowned for its surf beaches and is a beach side resort. With first class quality at very reasonable prices, Nirvana Ranch is luxury you can afford. Live on your own secluded knoll with southern exposure, and spectacular, panoramic, unobstructed sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, and mountains. Watch the sunrise and sunset while enjoying the sanctuary, peace and quiet from every room in the home. Bask in the sun above the fog. Cycle, walk or jog, the best picturesque mountain roads, while viewing the Pacific Ocean, right out your front gate, with no traffic passing you. Hike down your private trails to ancient Oak groves and up the mountain to Nirvana Meditation. Lie on a hammock at night and watch the stars fall and the moon rise over the ocean.

We are located in the area between the city of Santa Barbara, and Goleta (UCSB), with easy access to either, and a nearby bike path to both directions. There are many beaches in the area and More Mesa Beach is a nice walk across the mesa to the bluffs and down to the beach. There is free high-speed wifi and cable, and a nice desk and large comfortable desk chair to complete work or browse the internet. TV and DVD player in the room, with a selection of classic DVD's. Guest AccessGuests have limited access to kitchen, living room, dining room and patio for relaxing. There's a coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven available, and breakfast items. Cooking is limited to warming up food items, making tea, and such, (No frying, boiling, steaming). Interaction with GuestsI like to allow guests their privacy, with friendly greetings the norm, but I happily provide information on Santa Barbara and Goleta points of interest, if asked, and they are included in the guidebook. There are numerous maps and guidebooks in the room for guest's use. The NeighborhoodIt's a very quiet and safe area, with nice mountain views, and just a 15-20 minute pleasant walk to the beach across the mesa. You can walk for miles along the ocean on the bluffs. I have Santa Barbara guidebooks and maps for your use, and I'm most happy to answer any questions you may have.

There is a purple bucket with baby oil and wipes in the carport to use to clean your feet if you were walking barefoot. Please don't track in the oil/tar that the tides bring onto the beach and eventually onto your feet. Wipe the baby oil off with a clean cloth so that you don't slip coming inside. Late arrivals after 10:00 p.m. generally not accepted. Please ask if this is needed due to late international flight, and I'll try to accommodate.

The SpaceThis studio is situated on a property attached but separate from a main house in a beach community near a nature preserve called More Mesa. It has its own private entrance on the side of the property. The studio has a kitchenette with sink, fridge, stove, water pot, coffee maker, microwave, coffee, tea, granola, and cooking and eating utensils. The french doors open out into the garden and sitting area. It's a lovely, sunny morning spot and in the evening you can see the sun set over the mountains. It's seriously difficult to leave here. Guest AccessThere is a key to access the beautiful private beach which the guests may use. There are old beater bikes to ride on the bike path North to UCSB and Isla Vista or South to Hope Ranch or on the endless trails of More Mesa.

We give a 1 and 1/2 hr. SURF LESSONS for 90$. 160$ for 2 people. The beach called Campus Point near our house is great for learning. We would interact as much or as little as the guests would like. We will be in the main house or out and about for the most part doing the usual things like working, or gardening or running down for a jump in the water. We try to be home to greet our guests when they arrive, however sometimes we are out. But we always leave instructions on how to enter the cottage. We have really enjoyed meeting all our guests and we love providing a refreshing and beautiful experience for them. The NeighborhoodWe love that our neighborhood is quiet and so close to the beach and nature. It is walking distance to the Beachside Bar Cafe which is a fun place for Happy Hour or morning brunch at 11:00. Walk up the beach to the right for about 15 to 20 minutes at mid to low tide, you'll reach the pier and the cafe. If it's high tide the bike path also gets there. Santa Barbara is a short drive away. We have a lot of brochures and ideas for activities in a basket in the cottage for you to research. Island kayaking, wine tasting, hiking, surfing, beach walking, shopping, there is seriously alot to do around here. Other Things to NoteThe price of the cottage includes TOT taxes.

The SpaceThe cozy but comfy studio apartment is family owned and operated rental. We occupy the first floor of the unit, and will be available to provide any assistance you may need. Otherwise, you will not hear from us. We have another studio apartment that is adjacent to this one. Please contact us for details. Guest AccessA deck is located off the back of the unit in the rear part of the property. Only a short walk from us stands a playground for the little ones. Interaction with GuestsA private entrance to the studio apartment on the second level is an extension of our home offering a friendly, warm, and comfortable environment during your stay in Goleta/Santa Barbara. The NeighborhoodWe (the Hall Family) love it here! However, please note, our studios are located in a working class neighborhood, away from the glitz and glamour one would find in other, pricier areas. During your stay here, we hope you will stop by our local coffee shop, XO Coffee and Tea, which is only a short walk from our place (5599 Hollister Ave Unit B, Goleta). Our other local coffee shops French Press, Crush Cakes and Goleta Coffee are some 10 min drive. Trader Joe's, Lassen's (health food store), and other grocery stores are some 5-10min drive (possible to walk, but not scenic). Good (but a bit pricey) local quality food at Goodland Kitchen (URL HIDDEN) (a bit strange hours....). Most other restaurants in Old Town Goleta are just OK. We noted our favorite picks in the "Welcome Book" in your studio apartment. Feel free to ask for recommendations.... Getting AroundBus stop close by. Other Things to NoteThe studio apartment has a comfortable double (full) size bed and a fold out lounge chair, which becomes a small twin. If you are travelling with children, additional beds are available. Ask us for details. The studio also has its own private bathroom with shower tub.

The SpacePURE MAGICAL LAND & WELL LOVED HOME off private drive. Extremely serene, quiet setting with peaceful gorgeous energy, green growing things and fine air. This stunning 11 acre property graced with oak, pepper, sycamore and walnut trees is surrounded by horse trails, more land and national forest. Santa Barbara is stunning ALL year round! The incredible thing about this place is that it's a mere 2 miles to shopping malls, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to just about anywhere downtown Santa Barbara. We're also 30 minutes from the wine country... Santa Ynez, Los Olivos and Solvang. The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land! Bringing people to my home is a total love and passion of mine.. this isn't just some financial exchange.. but something that comes from my heart and it's a great honor to be blessed with this amazing piece of Earth and get to share it with people. I take great pride in my home and making the experience incredible for those who visit! To play a small role in creating the setting for peoples life memories.. eloping or having their first romantic get away after having children etc.makes my heart glad! I think because I truly LOVE, love opening my home and land up to others, it makes for a very different kind of experience energetically. It's been a real honor for me to be hostess! PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in staying, I always like to connect by phone for a brief hello, answer questions and make sure it's all feeling in alignment. I want people getting just what they need, wherever that may be. In order to do this PLEASE BE SURE TO SELECT 'VOICE CONNECT' when you make your inquiry for a reservation so I can call you directly. Now, back to why this place is UTTER PARADISE!... The house has it's own private gated entrance and parking.. it's a beautiful, very open, light 1 bedroom, 1 bath space with a modern living room/kitchen, mountain views and a wood back deck with a wonderful claw footed bath tub under a sweet pepper tree. Modern, bright, soulful and homey with skylights, Bose surround system for phone input or CDs, a full sized projector/ full screen movie theatre in the bedroom, glass french doors and numerous windows (very open and light) looking out to the Santa Barbara mountain range, beautiful hillsides and open nature... all STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS! The open door ways expand out to the land which becomes an extension of the living space. The birds that land on the outside fountain are amazing.. birds of every kind.. sparrows, humming birds, blue scrub jays.. there's the sound of hawks, crows, laying chickens (fresh eggs for you!) and horses. The sun is supreme here, the air quality medicinal and the weather has a habit of being a perfectly kind 73 degrees and sunny. Hang out by day or by moon with the countless places to dwell. There is a true home feeling here... clean, soulful and modern with gorgeous wood floors, a two headed hand tiled shower, organic California king mattress, claw foot bath tub off the back deck outside, a chef's kitchen and other good things you'd want in a dwelling, not to mention an UPRIGHT ACOUSTIC PIANO in the bedroom! We also happen to have on the top tier of the property a beautiful POOL (minimally fenced in/ NOT childproof!) and an awesome HOT TUB surrounded by a canopy of gorgeous oak trees. Incredible under the stars!! For kids (of all ages), there is a great playground on the property, a little playhouse outside the main house and a large trampoline looking out to an open forest of trees. Wireless internet yes... for your laptop. And cell phones usually work great.. internet etc....though you might need to find the sweet spots ... a good break for the nervous system! The setting is ideal for two adults + up to 1 maybe 2 little ones which I can provide pads for if needed. ($40 extra per child per night to support setting them up properly!) I also consider pets, so feel free to inquire on that! Again, I so love having people here.. part of the unfolding story of this special dwelling and have appreciated how everyone has treated this place with honor, respect.. all of us taking good care with it so it's here for everyone's enjoyment. Makes me glad!!! I am present on the land in my 'own neck of the woods' (so I'm around if needed by text) or it may be that you have the 11 acres to yourself or with 2 other guests who reside on the other corner of the property (they enter from another gated entrance).. not likely you'll cross paths with them except at the common spaces like the pool/ hot tub. Remember 11 acres is A LOT of land! If you are interested in sharing the property with your people, they could rent the yurt (also a stunning space.. very different from the house/ you can find it's description under "STUNNING EXCLUSIVE YURT ON 11 ACRES" or (go to my profile for my listings). I always do my best to welcome people in person briefly, a soulful hello and fill you in on a couple things so your stay goes smooth. As beautiful as the images show.. there are aspects of being here.. the beauty that can't be captured in photos.. the stillness, the very open, natural setting but with a feeling of complete safety. It's a very special zone in which to unravel the nervous system, revise and renew. The reviews will give you a deeper sense of peoples amazing experiences here. Hope to share in it with you! LOve! Jennifer P.s. OTHER OFFERINGS: I have chickens who are fed very well laying all organic epic EGGS! When they are laying (not so much in the winter months. chickens will take a break when it's 'cold')... I will be showering you with them for your breakfast making pleasure. I also provide organic whole bean coffee, teas, usually cream or milk, butter, salt and pepper.. basics like that. Also of course the best natural shampoo, conditioner and soap! Thanks for reading! Guest AccessPool, hot tub, trampoline, playground, swings and land trails to roam. Interaction with GuestsI love being available via text and in person if needed. I take total pleasure in making guests feel welcomed and cared for. The NeighborhoodThis amazing home resides off a private drive from the 154 pass, just 10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, 5 minutes from uptown (whole foods etc..), 5 minutes to the beach and 35 minutes from Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez wine country! Adjacent to the property are other large parcels and national forest. We're on 11 natural acres surrounded by open land. Again only 12 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara and 5 minutes from uptown.) It's amazing how off the grid you feel here, like your far out in nature on retreat, yet so close to town as well as some of the most stunning hiking trails Santa Barbara has to offer. Getting AroundCar is best! Other Things to NoteBe prepared to be lusciously renewed and reorganized!

The SpaceSanta Barbara merits at least a two night stay! Hiking, beaches, mountains, wine tasting, restaurants, and ocean tours can all be part of your visit given the time. Plus, the proximity to other famous sites. Our place is unique. We are at the end of a street lined with quiet apartments and we border with a forest, and trails to beach bluffs and remote beach, a place to relax or go go go.

The SpaceCozy, tiny, and peaceful cottage nestled in beautiful oaks accommodates one or a cozy two adults (children under 12, babies, and pets cannot be accommodated). A compact 160 square feet, the Cottage is comprised of a tiny living room with sofa, mini bedroom with double (not queen) bed, and bathroom with shower. (People over 6'2"- do think about your comfort as it is small.) A mini-kitchen with microwave, hot plate, dishes, and mini frig round out the amenities. French doors open onto a full deck with expansive mountain view. One extremely personable cat patrols the premises and will visit if you like. Off street parking is included. The Cottage is about 50 feet behind the main house. You have considerable privacy and freedom to come as go as you like without worry of disturbing anyone. Located in a safe and eclectic neighborhood, the Cottage has a rural "country" feel just a minute off the highway. You're less than ten minutes to everything from UCSB and the airport to downtown, the waterfront, parks, and several beaches. It's located near the foot of the pass that takes you to the wine county in about 30 minutes. I am a long time Santa Barbara resident, and happy to assist with plan making and hidden gems of the area. Located in Santa Barbara's sunbelt when fog may visit the coastline, the Cottage offers you natural beauty and a glorious alpenglow after your day at the attractions. Notes • You and your baggage will need to negotiate stone stairs and a stone path to reach the Cottage. Those with walking issues may want a more level property. See the picture of the stairs. Guest AccessGuests basically have their own separate unit. The washer and drier are also available. Interaction with GuestsI love interacting with guests, but respect the guests' maximum privacy. I won't come up to the Cottage except to greet you or answer a question, but welcome interactions, and always welcome a chat. Getting AroundThere are bus stops within walking distance, and there are easy bikeways to downtown but for the most part, a car or Uber are your best and certainly easiest options here. Other Things to NoteThe Cottage is near an open space, so you're likely to see and hear a variety of birds, and if you're lucky, sight local wildlife- raccoons, or perhaps a skunk. Beach towels and beach chairs are available in the Cottage.

The SpacePURE MAGICAL WELL LOVED LAND & YURT off secluded gated private drive. Extremely serene, quiet setting with peaceful gorgeous energy, green growing things and fine air. This stunning 11 acre property graced with oak, pepper, sycamore and walnut trees is surrounded by private trails, more land and national forest. Santa Barbara is stunning place to be ALL year round.. summer and spring obviously but fall and winter are equally gorgeous and kind weather wise (fall/ winter my personal favorite when the colors are extra deep and vibrant) - this land. is.... a true expression of the beauty of Santa Barbara being within the mountains and minutes from the ocean, half hour from the Santa Ynez back country, minutes to the beach and epic mountain top trails. I wish to say before going into the description... how SO very sweet and satisfying it's been for me to share this special land with the amazing people coming through making life memories.. eloping or having their first romantic get away after having children etc.. I think because I truly LOVE, love opening my home and land up to others, it makes for a very different kind of experience energetically. It's been a real honor for me to be hostess! PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in staying, I always like to connect by phone before bringing anyone to my home, this amazingly special land to meet, say hello and answer any questions you might have. In order to do this PLEASE BE SURE TO SELECT "VOICE CONNECT" when you make your inquiry for a reservation so I can call you directly. Many thanks!! Now, back to why this place is UTTER PARADISE!... The Yurt is a very soulful, sexy, romantic space. Very different from being in a normal house structure. It's like your camping in a way.. hearing the sounds of outside, of the wind.. but then you're in this very luxurious extraordinarily dreamy realm. For those of you who don't know, a yurt is a round structure with wood floors, a round skylight at the top of the dome and very heavy canvas that can withstand any weather... a most interesting architecture. It's very warm and soulful. The hillside where it resides provides beautiful trees and sweetest feel of openness.. a small trail that leads up to a 2 seater lounge swing overlooking the entire mountain range of Santa Barbara begins just outside the door. Amazing surround sound system for your dancing pleasure. Also available DVD player and WI. No internet. This is for those who wish to really recalibrate... though most smart phones (internet) will function from the sweet spots on the property. I myself are on Verizon.. have no issue using phone and internet from my smart phone. The bathroom and shower are not adjacent to the yurt (this is NOT for everyone! and PERFECT for others!!) It's a short walk away... about 300 feet or so?.. a dreamy stroll down the dirt country road through the small fruit orchard.. a short journey just as stunning by day as by night. When the sun's gone down, the land is lit up beautiful with lights leading you to where you need to go. Or the stars and moon will do the same! The outside shower experience is one of the best things about being in this amazing place. A gorgeous private wood structure looking out to the most glorious views of the hillside, trees. You can't imagine how GOOD this is!! Pool and hot tub (90 percent of the time I estimate) you'll have to yourself or at most sharing it with 2 other people (house guests residing on the other end of the land which can also be rented/ see my hostess profile and other listings if you want to bring your people/ share the land). Anyway, being in the center of the pool on a hot summer day is one of the most epic of feelings surrounded by all the nature, trees, living things. So luxurious, yet so Earthy and soulful. More about the yurt. As you can see by the pictures, it is very light and open. A complete living room/ bedroom/ eating area all in one. French doors lead out to a private deck. Perfect for stargazing or just laying in the sweet sun. The land surrounding is an extension of the living space. Hear and watch the beautiful birds.. hawks, crows and small singing ones.. howls of distant coyotes by night and the occasional sighting of a bob cat. The yurt in short is just an epic place to dwell recalibrate, renew in both nature and luxury. Now, there is no kitchen, but yes a fridge just outside the yurt (so as to keep the motor sounds away from the inside space). Also a french press, grinder and electric water kettle for your tea or coffee pleasure making. Organic EGGS! Here on the land! I have 14 wonderful hens who lay daily in the non cold months of the year. Happy to send you off with fresh ones to take home with you! Ahh... what else? The sun is supreme here, the air quality medicinal and the weather has a habit of being a perfectly kind 73 degrees and sunny. Hang out by day or by moon with the countless places to dwell. The incredible thing about this place is that it's a mere 2 miles to shopping malls, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. We're also just 30 minutes from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang (wine country). The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land! The setting is ideal for two adults or one solo soul looking to retreat. I also will consider pets! Again.. to say... how I so love having people here.. part of the unfolding story of this special dwelling. I've marveled and appreciated so much how everyone has treated this place with honor, respect.. all of us taking good care with it so it's here for everyone's enjoyment. Makes my heart glad!!! I am present on the land in my "own neck of the woods" (so I'm around if needed by text) or it may be that you have the 11 acres to yourself or share with 2 other guests in the main house (also a stunning space.. very different from the yurt). Usually I will greet you briefly, warmly so I can answer any questions and then because there's so much space, there is rarely any overlap. So it's a very private experience. The photographs... I have to say, DO NOT GIVE JUSTICE to this home and land. You'll know what I mean when you get here...the feel of this place, the stillness, the open, natural setting, nurturing, safe feeling. It's a very special zone in which to unravel the nervous system, revise and renew. To get a deeper sense of peoples experiences, reading peoples reviews is great for that. Hope to share in it with you! LOve! Jennifer Guest AccessPool, hot tub area (extremely private area/ on rare occasion shared with house guests/ usually not much overlap), giant trampoline, swings and land. Outside shower/ bathroom is a common space to me (not house guests).. but most likely we will not be overlapping. Interaction with GuestsI love to welcome guests upon arrival, fill you in on things you might have questions about, then give you space and complete privacy so you can enjoy this beautiful land and retreat. However, I am available via text and phone if you have questions while visiting. LOVE for you to feel super welcomed and cared for!! The NeighborhoodThis land is off a private drive off highway 154 which is 2 miles from the 101 and 12 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, 5 minutes from uptown (whole foods etc..) and 35 minutes from Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez wine country! Adjacent to the property are other large parcels and national forest. We're on 11 natural acres surrounded by open land. Again only 12 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara and 5 minutes from uptown.) It's amazing how off the grid you feel here, like your far out in nature on retreat, yet so close to town as well as some of the most stunning hiking trails Santa Barbara has to offer. Getting AroundCar is best! Other Things to NoteBe prepared to be lusciously renewed and reorganized!

Interaction with GuestsWe are very friendly folks, and offer any kind of assistance and help that our guests may request, but also know that some people may wish simply to be checked in and then left to their own devices The NeighborhoodHeadwaters Ranch is located two miles up a steep, winding mountain road, with only a few residences along the way. Just above the ranch, ( but not visible ) is a community of about 70 homes. Just below our driveway ( within walking distance ) is the Chumash Painted Cave Historical State Park, where one may view some of the best Chumash Indian cave paintings known. We are also conveniently located between Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley, making it a 30 minute drive or less to wine tasting, golf, beaches, restaurants,theatre, National Forest hiking trails, Cachuma Lake, (fishing) and lots more. Getting AroundYou must have your own transportation to reach the ranch as there is no public transportation to here, and you will need a car to to travel around the area. The ranch is however a great starting point for bicycle rides ( mountain or road ) if you are an experienced mountain rider. Other Things to NoteGuest cabin check-in is @2pm, check-out is 11am. Our guest cabin is kept very clean and has a full kitchen, bathroom with tile shower, queen bed and futon ( Sleeps two couples) and comfortable seating. You will not find a t.v. or internet here....We encourage immersing oneself in nature while visiting. Headwaters Ranch can get warm during summer. The cabin has fans to move air, but no air conditioning. In the winter, during heavy storm activity, the road in can actually close 100 yds from the cabin, and access in at that time may have to be on foot over a foot-bridge. This is fairly rare, and access by car has never been restricted for more than 12 hours or so in the 16 years that we have been here.
