Casita Cacao is a renovated shed turned into an off-grid tiny house. It is approximately 430 sq ft. but has everything you need to feel more than comfortable! It was designed to provide a space where you can unplug and reset surrounded by nature- while protecting nature.

The space
The Casita is located behind the main house on a 5 acre property. You can enjoy and have the private space all to yourself. The Casita is solar powered, has a tankless water heater, runs on its own water tank, and features the Natures Head composting toilet (instructions available on how to use). We believe there's great satisfaction in a self-sustaining way of living. Therefore, over the past few years we have been turning our place into a homestead. You will hear, be close and have access to the farm animals during your stay. Kids love it when they come and visit!
We are less than a mile away from the motorcycle crossing. 30 minutes away from the Wrightwood Mountains or the Big Bear Mountains for skiing, snowboarding or taking some hikes. We are also just a few minutes from Cal Earth Institute! Even though we are nestled in the desert we are still just a short 5-7 minutes from shopping centers and less than half a mile away from the 15 freeway- a perfect spot to stop and rest when traveling.

Guest access
You will have the casita to yourself, access to the garden and also the pens to see the animals.

Other things to note
ATTENTION: Here are 5 things to note about our place:

1) We are currently building a garden fence/privacy fence so please expect to see construction material. We are also still working on the landscaping around the Casita.

2) You will drive on a dirt road for less than half a mile. While this is an adventure for many- it might not be so fun for others.

3) We have the Natures Head COMPOSTING toilet. We do have instructions on how to use it.

4) We do have farm animals that are free range on the property. You will hear roosters in the morning.

5) We do not provide wiFi at the moment. We are on a waiting list for connection until then we are disconnected.

6) we do provide firewood for you to light and maintain the fireplace.

Did we mention that we are surrounded by a beautiful desert landscape? The desert provides amazing star gazing views, cotton candy sunsets and quiet slow days. Be prepared to drive on a dirt road but only for about 5 minutes.
If you are into motorcycle riding there are plenty of trails around us you can take. Some guest might not like: 1) the dirt roads 2) the animal sounds 3) there is not much lighting at night because of the nature of our rural area.

Hello, We are Zelin and Natalie Cacao. Just two city folks gone desert country! A few years ago we decided to raise our little family differently, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We found our 5 acre property nestled in the high desert hills and felt it was the perfect place to do just that AND start a homestead- with ZERO experience. Fast forward to now, we cannot imagine living anywhere else and doing anything else! It is such a joy to now be able to share our space with future guest and our community!
