Gorgeous Desert House
My girlfriend and I had a lovely stay at Rancho Mojave. The property is beautiful and our stay was very relaxing. We were woken each morning to the sunrise and sounds of nearby owls and coyotes. I would certainly return.
Rancho Mojave holds much magic for the visitors lucky enough to stumble upon it. I am sitting, as i write this, in your sacred hammock- a spot where i experienced perhaps the most peaceful and quiet moments i have ever known. Even our 4 year old, Cyrus, kept remarking on the peaceful nature of the desert and la casita. Coming from a four year old--this says a lot! We thank you for your warm hospitality and for the opportunity to "meet" the desert. This has been a marvelous way to welcome a new decade and to celebrate our family.
Affectionately, Alexandra, Nils, Cyrus & Celeste
As we drove out of the storm into Morongo Valley, a double rainbow appeared in the sky. This evening I sit on the back porch with a cup of hot chocolate & gaze up at the moon. Ryan relaxes in the couch watching "Hairspray". My soul returns to me...
There is magic here. I took a walk by moonlight last night before retiring; the moon was so bright it lit the desert painting it silver so no flashlight was necessary. My bladder woke me at 3:00 and the silence was so profound it felt like an awareness, a listening, able to receive all of my nightmares and dreams.
I am not sure which I prefer; the moonlight night or the glorious mornings, waking up to a desert sunrise while cuddled in luxurious linens and down comforter. How generous to share your treasures with complete strangers!
I am drinking my coffee on the porch that shelters one from the wind; but there is no wind this morning, only clouds rolling in. I am afraid we take the sun of us. Georgia O'Keefe came to the desert to paint. The desert fathers found God here. I am here for respit, for sanity and these I have found along with peace. This Thanksgiving my heart overflows with gratitude. Blessing on your home.
May you be safe, healthy, happy, live at ease.
Cecilia & Ron,
We had the most peaceful vacation at your lovely casita. It was way more than we expected.
Thank you so much. The awesome walks, talks and all your knowledge on Desert Life.
We felt so at home here. So much culture out here.
We will be back every chance we get to hang out with you cool cats.
