I am selling my 4 acre homestead in El Cajon, San Diego County, CA, USA. I posted it a month ago but I have updated the info. It is zoned agricultural, has over 20 pesticide-free fruittrees, and a hut (Tiny House) made of papercrete and steel. Also has well, building pad for a small house, a septic system, solar powered well pump, and fire hydrant. It is a dryland and is sloped. LOTS of wildlife and native vegetation. San Diego County has the highest biodiversity in the US!! Quiet neighborhood but close to town, beaches and hiking, fishing, bicycling and more. For photos and more info see https://homepie.com/listings/3742.
If you are in the area, please make an appointment to see it!

Not sure if I'm answering right. Thanks for writing! Wish I could knock the zero off the end but it cost me wayyyyy more than that to buy it in the first place. I Hope you find your dream place someday.
It has a rustic toilet inside a tent. The waste emties into the on-site septic system which is designed to recycle the treated wastewater for tree irrigation. I take a shower under a tree in the summer. I also take sponge bath. In the winter I usually rely on friends' showers but also take sponge bath. It would be not-too-distant to rig up a solar-heated shower, if you wanted to. If you would like to call or text me, my number is 619-219-9311. I'm on Pacific Time and go to bed around 9. My email is email@example.com.
Thanks very much for your interest,
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, I have another question.
Do you think its possible to have a modern bathroom installed and permitted to the house?
My wife is not very rustic, she always reminds me to get an old fashioned flush able toilet, with a shower etc...
sorry for all the questions.
The tiny house is below the septic tank in elevation, so it would be better to install a regular flush toilet and shower/tub up on the building pad. The pad and septic system are permitted. I don't know what San Diego County does in cases if you want to build a bathroom separate from a house. FYI the tiny house was built without a permit because it's about 90 sq ft. Under 120 sq ft is OK without a permit. You could also consider putting another tiny or small house on the existing building pad and having a conventional bathroom inside it. If you wouldn't mind sending me your email address, I can send you some pictures so you can see what I mean. I tried to attach some with my phone now but haven't tried it on permies before and didn't get it to work.
