This was a great adventure with our kids. Dan is a wonderful host and has gone out of his way to create an eclectic but livable space. The desert trail behind his house was great. There is easy access to the desert museum and quick access to the freeway. Dinner on the front porch is the best part. The house is a work in progress, so this is not for someone who wants a polished, traditional rental. Instead, if you want something you will remember forever, you have found it. The house is not as secluded as I thought it might be, as it sits above a fairly busy intersection and has a house next door. However, it is high enough up a hill that you don't hear traffic much.
