“Great desert experience in a peaceful, scenic setting surrounded by birds, vegetation and mountains”

We really enjoyed our desert experience at Ron's place! Great spot that is remote enough to feel surrounded by nature yet close enough to easily drive to the main attractions in the area such as Palm Springs, Joshua Tree National Park, Morongo Nature Preserve, Poneertown and Pappy and Harriet's. The views over the Morongo Valley are awesome by day or night! Being in the hot tub on a full moon night was a highlight! The house has all the necessary amenities for living comfortably for 2 people. A remodel would upgrade it from good to great. We appreciated being personally greeted by Ron who gave us a detailed tour of the property. A great find at a reasonable price!

“Truly a Retreat”
Reviewed 19 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This was the perfect retreat for us--comfortable and casual, with awe inspiring views. There's something restorative for one's nature to see how Big Nature changes moment to moment right in front of you while you relax from a cozy living room perch. Ron's place is so close to Joshua Tree National Park and other cool places to explore. This is better than a higher priced Palm Springs hotel if you can live without lux and attitude. Instead, get the comforts of home and access to naturally gorgeous places while you giggle all the way up the washboard dirt road...looking forward to a hot tub. We'd easily do this again.

“Serene Escape”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What a delight. Driving up the dirt road was an adventure, fun and not something you do everyday. Upon arrival your welcomed by the beauty of the mountain views. The place was as expected, calming and relaxing. You have all you need. Hit the grocery store for a few items before you arrive and just stay in to enjoy the serene place that takes you away from all day to day responsibilities. I'm definitely going back! Ron is great and very friendly. Very detailed oriented. The house was so calming and the outdoors had some of the best views. At night take dip in the hot tub and look up at the stars. You might just see a shooting star or two (I saw 3). :) Thank you Ron for making my stay memorable and all that I was looking for. A serene escape!!!

“Fantastic!”

My husband and I very much enjoyed our weeklong stay at this property in the guest house. Ron, the owner, was very easy to deal with and extremely accommodating when we arrived a couple of hours later than originally planned (due to windy conditions/dust storms/airport issues). He took the time to thoroughly review with us how to work the wood stove/heaters/hot tub/etc. The house was very clean and well kept. There was a variety of reading material, including information on local attractions. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was no shortage of pillows! I will admit that on the drive up the dirt/sand road to get to the property (at night) I was wondering what we had gotten ourselves into and was getting a little nervous about the location. But after arriving and meeting Ron, and then seeing the property in daylight with the amazing view of the mountains, I knew we had made a good decision. We would definitely consider staying here again if we're ever back in the area.

Liked best: The scenery, peace and quiet.
Liked least: Kitchen and bathroom were a bit small, but still functional. Just not what I'm used to :)
