The Space

This old blockhouse has ,no forced air heat, no air conditioner,and no dishwasher; but has new carpet in the bedrooms and new kitchen counter. It is comfortable, heated by a fireplace with a blower and space heaters, and cooled by ceiling fans, electric fans and evaporative cooler in each bedroom. The two large bedrooms can comfortably accommodate 6 people. Both have queen beds. The larger bedroom, 20' x 19', in addition to the queen bed, has a trundle bed which can accommodate 2 people. Roll away bed and cot available for extra people.
The home is located on 5 acres on a dirt road, 6 miles from Joshua Tree National Park. About an acre of the property is fenced, safe for a dog.
The home supplies linens, dishes, cookware and appliances. Washer and dryer, TV, internet, CD and record player with lots of old LPs and CDs.
Peaceful area. Visitors include cottontails, jack rabbits, road runners, doves, quail, squirrels, and an occasional coyote or bobcat.
If the house is too big or too expensive, you can rent the guest bedroom as a bed and breakfast. See Nana's ad under airbnb rooms.

Guest Access

Guests may enjoy the fire pit on the back patio for cooking hot dogs and marshmallows. Or use the charcoal cooker on the front patio.
There are toys and color books and some big toys.. Plenty of games and a jigsaw puzzle.
Cool off in the fun outdoor bathtub!
Unwind, meditate as you walk the labyrinth.

Interaction with Guests

Interaction varies with the situation of each. I have gone out to dinner and taken walks with some guests. Other guests, once they check in, I leave town and they are gone when I get back. Usually, if guests stay for just a night or two, the dogs and I stay in a trailer in a fenced off area, away from the house.

The Neighborhood

Mornings are peaceful and the sun feels good as it rises after a cold night. Doves are cooing. Often if you sit and wait, a rabbit or two will come by. A woodpecker will work on the Joshua tree. I like to start my mornings outside with a cup of coffee, readings from the Good Book and meditations on the needs of others and events of the day.
Across the street lives a good neighbor, and down the dirt road more good neighbors. We are separated by acres of desert, but we watch out for one another.
It is hoped that guests will experience the peace and beauty of the desert and marvel at its creation and be blessed by presence of the Creator.

Other Things to Note

Be sure to visit nearby Joshua Tree National Park. See the art displays, visit the Saturday morning Farmers Market/arts & crafts. See the integretron in Landers, the glass outhouse in 29 Palms. To mention a few points of interest.
