Beautiful, Inviting Space
My friends and I rented the Tile House for a New Year retreat. We wanted a secluded, inviting space close to the park but miles away from civilization. From the second we pulled into the driveway, we were blown away by the property. The house and the area surrounding it are a work of art... and that doesn't even begin to do it justice. Every piece of tile, every found object has been carefully placed and arranged with the surrounding objects to form a playful landscape of color and wonder. My friends and I felt as if we were on a constant journey of discovery, as every time we looked at a particular room or wall we would notice another detail that we had overlooked before... maybe it's the tiny rabbit's head peeking up from the floor, maybe it's the hand holding the lights in the courtyard, maybe it's the bowling ball supporting the charger for the lights in the yard, maybe it's the tentacles extending up the posts on the kitchen stools... everywhere you turn in the Tile House, there is something waiting to greet you. Artists, entertainers, creative types, and those who respond strongly to color and texture will be right at home in this space. The kitchen is well-suited for cooking elaborate and tasty meals; the hot tub is perfect for stargazing in the chilly evenings; the wood pellet stove in the living room lends a cheery ambiance to late-night card games, reading, and comraderie; the large surrounding property is great for early morning wildlife sighting (jackrabbits, roadrunners, small birds); the buddha fountain in the center of the house is ideal for morning meditation; and the peace and quiet of the secluded desert is perfect for quieting a busy, overstimulated mind. Last but not least, the owner, Perry, is as gracious and welcoming a host as you could ever hope to find.
