Beautiful property, thoughtful host!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Marianna's home celebrating my husband's 30th birthday. The bedrooms are spacious and comforting, the house was clean and Marianna went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed. We loved cooking and eating together every night in the HUGE kitchen and doing yoga on the deck. Can't wait to return!

Most amazing retreat in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are amazing, and they don't even do the house justice! Came with a group of couples for my boyfriend's 30th, and it was everything we could have imagined. The decor is desert perfection, and the layout is ideal for large groups. (This would be bachelorette party heaven!) Marianna was so sweet and gracious, and we'd love to come back again!

This home is simply amazing. Beautiful property--it was beyond expectation, based on the photos. Everything was clean, and Marianna really has thought of everything a guest could ever want! She was always prompt to respond and gave great tips for visiting the area. It was perfect for going to the park and for nighttime star-gazing. Everyone was comfortable, lots of space to have privacy, yet all come together to share a meal at the big table. I highly recommend this oasis in the desert!!

Sweet landscape, beautiful home from the outside...average in the inside, but layout of main room/kitchen was big and open. The jute box was a hit and the yoga on the deck with the hot tub option was magnificent.

All five king beds were extremely comfortable! But for 10 people The owner may consider getting a wok or a big frying pan or two to accommodate cooking for 10. The propane grill was fabulous but to cook anything over the stove for the amount of people the house, dates they were not appropriate pans to do so. And just for the guest information the pool is not heated and the hot tub does take approximately a day to warm up, but once it gets there it’s very nice!

Check-in and checkout was made easy and the owner was gracious in extending the times because there was no guests on either side, and communication was easy before during and after.

What a great house, well worth the price. Marianna is the best host.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a lot better than what the pictures show. Very open and comfortable, perfect for gatherings. What really stood out was the host, Marianna. She is world class and made our trip so much more enjoyable. I don't think we could have asked for more. 5 stars!

surpassed expectations

My family spent Thanksgiving with our daughter who lives in Yucca Valley. I don't think we could have picked a better house. Don't miss the Rising Sun or sunset!
