Exactly what we were hoping for.
The guest house was perfect for our needs. Having never visited Arizona before, we wanted a place to use as a 'home base' while we explored the area. The house was fully equipped with full kitchen, bath, and laundry. It was a little chilly during our stay so we didn't get to take advantage of the nice porch/patio area with bistro table, fire-pit, and grill, but it would be a great place to hang out in warmer weather. The guest house itself was very clean and well maintained. Our host, Denver, gave us tour of the house and introduced us to the ostriches, and he was very helpful with suggestions of places to see and things to do. Although it was a full day trip, we were able to visit the Grand Canyon one day. We also spent a day in Kingman, visiting several small but nice museums there including a Historic Route 66 Museum. Another day we visited the old west mining town of Oatman, a quaint little town with a definite old west feel to it including the wild burros that wander through the streets. We also spent a day in Laughlin which was only about an hour drive. So there is a lot to see and do within a reasonable drive, and a couple days we just went cruisin' and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery. The only drawback about the guest house (and this was really my fault because I didn't notice it in the list of amenities) is that there is no TV. This didn't bother me as I don't watch it much anyway, but my hubby is a rabid sports fan and missed his daily fix of whatever was going on that day. But we still enjoyed our time at the Joshua Tree Ostrich Ranch Guest House immensely and would recommend it to anyone.
