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

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.

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.

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.

RANCHO MOJAVE

  • 5 of 5
Rancho Mojave is an excellent get-away for those seeking a desert experience. The landscape is stunning and the silence such a welcome relief. The casita is charming and very comfortable. Our hosts, Cecelia and Ron, are generous and kind people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. A basket of fruit, wine and chocolate was there to greet us. Both the back patio and the front porch were perfect places to drink morning coffee in the sun and watch the birds. The views from all windows were truly gorgeous. The casita is isolated enough to feel private and only a half hour to the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. You will find everything you need in Yucca Valley which is 15 minutes away. We would go back to Rancho Mojave in a minute!
