Great check-in experience

Great communication
100% of recent guests rated Bruce 5-star in communication.

I joke that the accommodations are "5-star" ... minus 5-stars :-).

Bruce was a phenomenal host in every sense of the word! Incredibly accommodating, and makes you feel at home right away. He may even bless you with some professional banjo playing and a lesson on the history of the area. :)

Bruce is a very hospitable and kind. Speaking about his place, it was not as cozy, as we expected. Nevertheless, thanks to Bruce's nice attitude towards us, it felt like home. The location itself is very picturesque. It was unique experience to stay for a night in the desert.

Bruce is one of the most interesting characters I've ever met! You can listen to his stories for hours, and maybe even learn something from his rich life experience, but he'll totally respect your privacy if you'd like it. Bruce's place is half prefabricated and the other half is…
