About Cecilia Dighero

My name is Cecilia Dighero and I was born in Chile from Italian parents. I came to the USA with a Fulbright scholarship to study English. I worked at the Chilean desk at the UN and as an International Representative for the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in N.Y.C.

I have tought Spanish at Pepperdine University and I am currently the head of the Spanish Department for Adult Education at Santa Monica College.

My husband, Ron House, has been an actor/playwright in London, New York and Los Angeles. Co-founder of the British underground theatre group 'Low Moan Spectacular'. He is co-author of some Broadway hits such as 'El Grande de Coca Cola' and 'Bullshot'. He is a five time published playwright and has had 2 movies produced, one of them by Beatle George Harrison.

He has taught playwriting at UCLA, CalState LA, Mexico City & London among others.

He is currently working at the LAFilm School.

The inspiration for Rancho Mojave is Cecilia's 250 acre horse and cattle ranch in Chile.

Cecilia Dighero purchased this house in 1999

Why Cecilia Dighero chose Pioneertown

We discovered the high desert to get away from the stress of the large city. We fell in love with this area because of the silence, the pure air, the mystical open spaces, the trasparent light, the spectacular sunrises & sunsets and the canopy of stars. A true communion with nature.

What makes this house unique

Excellent place to unwind, to watch the star filled nights, commune with nature and charge your batteries. Lots of gentle trails for hiking and exploring. Gorgeous Joshua Tree National Park nearby. Lots of Art Galleries and famous Pappy & Harriet Palace only 5 min. away. Home of the world famous sound baths at the Integratron.

Beautiful Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5
This place is breathtaking. The owners are amazing and will respond to any questions or issues right away. The pictures listed definitely do not do the place and land justice. Pioneer town in which the property is located, is very unique and a short, beautiful drive from Yucca Valley. I will recommend this place to friends and family and am looking forward to staying again.

Relaxation and gorgeous vistas

  • 5 of 5
Rancho Mojave is a really special place. From every room in the house there's a gorgeous view of the incredible high desert, and we especially loved the view from the master bedroom -- we could watch the sunrise beyond the Joshua Trees from the comfort of our bed! The house is a real gem - beautifully decorated and upon arrival we immediately felt more relaxed. We loved the hammock nearby, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, stargazing, and watching the roadrunners and rabbits outside. We can't wait to come back!

Magnificent location

  • 5 of 5
My congratulations to the owners! We will definitely come back to this wonderful place. (We were a group of 4 women, 1 American and 3 Europeans who are seasoned travellers). Beautiful surroundings and a beautiful house. In fact the interiors are much more heartwarming, comfortable and appealing than the pictures depict. And the hosts,Cecilia and Ron, are as welcoming and friendly as the house.
The amenities were ample, the beds were made including the sofa bed which allows for an extra 2 people to sleep beside the 2 queen size beds/rooms. Everything was very clean. The kitchen containing everything you need to prepare a full meal, microwave, toaster, water-kettle etc., also the basics (like salt and pepper and so on). So, all in all, a truly enjoyable stay. A place to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, a place to unwind, and to reconnect. Away from the noise. This house and surroundings are lovingly taken care off, with a lot of heart, and you can feel it! En-joy!!!

Gorgeous Desert House

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic little house in the middle of the high desert, but near enough drive to the wonderful Pappy & Harriet's and Joshua Tree. Photo's represent the property well and everything was clean and perfect. Would totally recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Owners Cecilia and Ron were so helpful and informative and made us very welcome.

charming paradise

  • 5 of 5
The casita was charming, cozy, and welcoming. It had wonderful artful touches throughout the house and the grounds. It was a wonderful place for 2 of us though there was another double bed tucked into an alcove and the sofa could be opened into another bed. It was very well maintained with perfect kitchen equipment if one wanted to stay in and cook. It was a peaceful vacation home.

The owner was very helpful and prompt with replies and information.
Everything was as promised by the description and photos. But it was even better in real life.
It is a 15 min drive to Joshua Tree National Forest and is close to the famous local music/food palace-Pappy's (I think) . great weekend getaway from the LA area.
