Perfect for my needs...
I am a writer with a new project who needed time and quiet in a welcoming setting. I just went with this place on instinct (and reviews) and was pleasantly surprised. It turned out to be a very productive and inspiring creative space. It's a great, flowing plan, small house whose pleasingly minimal but exotic Moroccan-inspired interior would never be detected from its rather conventional exterior. There are houses nearby, you're not completely isolated, though you are off the beaten path in a network of manageable dirt roads. Many giant jack rabbits lumber by all day (or maybe it's just one repeat visitor). The first one you see may catch you off guard. The wood fire in winter is essential and mesmerizing (and great for procrastinating!).The hot tub at night under a canopy of stars is spectacular. The piano is a great touch (needs some tuning)... The kitchen is well arranged and stocked with all the hardware you might need. The bed is low and slightly on the hard side, which I like. Again, my needs were minimal, but everything worked and satisfied. My only tiny quip was that there weren't any comfortable chairs for writing. I let Nicole know this (she was away) and soon enough her partner, Paul, called to say he could bring over a better chair. I declined, I was managing alright, but it was a really nice gesture and I'm glad they're going to remedy that for future visits. They are both very kind people; very accommodating and great with communication. I'm not sure why I would go here other than to get away and focus on something creative, but I'm sure a small family exploring the desert (and who is fine without cable) would be very happy here. I'll be back...
