“Relaxing Weekend Get-a-Way!!”

We needed a weekend away from the chaos that is our home life. Two grands and their parents are currently staying with us. Wonderful.......but oh so exhausting. I digress.... :-)

Ron's place was very secluded and away from it all. Amazing views! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Drinks in the jacuzzi while watching the sunset, feeding the birds in the mornings. Short drive to downtown Palm Springs for dinner and a show.

When we need to run away again his place is definitely on our short list. Thanks Ron!

“I'm definitely staying here again!”

The accommodations very comfortable and clean. The view from the guest house is stunning. The kitchen is fully equipped for making meals and storing food.
The location is great as you have easy access to Joshua Tree National Park and other natural areas. The property on which the guesthouse sits has its own wildlife from road runners to quail to hummingbirds.
The proprietor, Ron Morgan, is helpful and accommodating. He is also an outstanding naturalist, willing to share his knowledge about the plants and animals on the property and the surrounding areas.

“Fantastic holiday home in the desert”

I stayed here for 4 nights as a base for hiking in the San Bernardino mountains and Joshua Tree. Communication with Ron in advance was prompt and friendly, and upon check-in he gave me a thorough tour of the property, pointing out some short local hikes and various flowers.

The property was easy to find from the highway. The last mile is an unpaved road - it's bumpy but fine in any car as long as you take it slow. The house was in good condition, very comfortable and clean. Kitchen is small but has everything you might need, and there is a big grill outside for guests to use. The view of the mountains at sunrise and sunset is amazing.

Location is great if you're visiting Big Morongo, Joshua Tree, San Bernardino mountains or Idyllwild. I had a fantastic time and would definitely stay again.

“Wonderful, peaceful location, heartily recommend it.”

We have spent four nights here at the end of March, beginning of April. It's a peaceful location, private, with great views over the valley and some fabulous wildlife - we absolutely loved the hummingbirds. You need to drive to go out to eat or to get supplies in, (supermarkets are just up the road in Yucca) but that wasn't a problem for us. The house is well equipped, the kitchen is small but perfectly functional and there is a barbecue too. The rooms are larger than we expected and it's a comfortable house. The hot tub is large too and it's great at night under the stars.
Ron is very accommodating and left us to it having ensured we knew how things worked.
All in all a great stop on our tour of California.

“Private Hot Tub Under The Stars, What's Not To Like?”

My wife and I spent 5 amazing nights here in March and we can't say enough great things about it. Ron was a great host, always quick to respond to pre-booking, pre and post arrival questions. The guesthouse is fully equipped, just bring your groceries and beverages of choice (both available nearby), and enjoy the desert wild flowers and wildlife. Greeted each morning by resident quail, birds, squirrel and one roadrunner visit! Amazing sun and moonsets from the big front window and the hot tub. Close to everything (Palm Springs, Joshua Tree NP, Pioneertown)and at the same time, far away from them too! We're already talking about going back...Thank Ron!

We found Ron's place so relaxing and peaceful. After a day in busy noisy nearby Palm Springs it is a great place to come back to. We also enjoyed watching the desert birds.

“Perfect for our needs”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Not everyone's cup of tea, but my wife and I like being off the beaten path and still have activities like hiking nearby and accessible. Ron's place was perfect for this. Excellent weather while we were there, and nice comfortable temperatures.
