A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owner provided good customer service. He responded promptly, and that was great for us as this was somewhat of a last minute trip on our end.

This place is such a gem! The view of the house against the sunbaked mountain is gorgeous. The house was clean, inviting and very lovely. The AC works great! Clean stove and oven! The bed was comfortable and it was just perfect for our 2 night get-away.

We enjoyed walking up to the side of the house. It has a beautiful view of the valley, especially as the sun set.

There was a bag of bird feed by the door, so we decided to put some on the feeder in the courtyard. We enjoyed watching the numerous quails and other species of birds feast on the feed. We did not see coyotes but they howled like crazy at night. There were lots of squirrels that loved the bird food as well.

Our stay may have been short, but we enjoyed spending our quiet but oh so awesome 4th of July at this JT retreat. This is a place we could easily go back to. It is a beautiful place :-)

Peaceful Desert Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house in a fantastic location. Neat and tidy, everything works, and it has a very pleasant semi-enclosed yard with a fireplace and grill. It was very private and peaceful. We will return again.

Perfect location, well laid out, super clean

  • 5 of 5

We just left our stay today and thought it was terrific. The house is perfect - well laid out, all possible amenities, and so well located. It is private and in a great location for the park. Such a nice courtyard for having breakfast - and loved seeing all the quails running by. Gerhard was super helpful. Highly recommend.

Great views, cozy location. House was pristine. It needs some unfinished details fix such as towel hooks in the bathroom and a larger kitchen trash can. The owner responds within a half hour to deal with any issues. We had a very peaceful NYE.

Thanks so much!
