Super cool concept. Shelly is a gracious host who welcomed us upon arrival and showed us around. The tortilla bus was clean and comfortable, shared kitchen was great added bonus. Her friendly dogs went on a hike with us. We hope to be back soon.

We had the best time at Shelly's!! She's the best and welcomed us to the site which had everything we needed for a magical night we won't forget. The stars are so bright out there and we could hear coyotes in the distance. The lending library is a treat, too. We hope to come back…
