What an amazing sky We have here! The stars at night are outstanding. We are 25 miles from the grand canyon. Just 2 miles from the town of Valle. 27 miles to historic Williams and 50 miles to Flagstaff. We are close to Snowbowl and the Nordic Center if you like to ski. We have 360 mountain views. Its quiet, no light polution and the sky is amazing! We live here full time off grid. The weather is great but we are high desert so it gets cold at night and in the morning. It can also be a little windy.

Rianna was a wonderful host and her spot was everything we needed on our spur of the moment adventure heading to the Grand Canyon. We arrived right around sundown. Her husband had our tent setup, blankets available, and we were warmly welcomed! We upgraded our little stay and even got breakfast which was frittata, bacon, and sourdough bread with coffee. The best part was being able to break bread with she and her little family. 10/10 we are looking to come back again. Ps, if you’re a star gazer, the views ARE EVERYTHING! The Milky Way spanned the entire sky.

The morning in the desert. Our tent and chill area.

Our host was very accommodating and helped us with anything we needed and responded right away. I’ve never spent the night in a more secluded area in my life and the view at night is breathtaking. I would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at Desert Dreams with Rianna was truly a desert dream. The location and space is literally 20 mins down the road from the Grand Canyon. We stayed in a tent provided by Rianna, and she even had padding to sleep on. She provided an out house, a cute bench area, and even water. Rianna and her husband are truly amazing people. Extremely helpful and so welcoming! They made us feel so cared for. It was an awesome experience being there for two nights, I wish we could have stayed longer. There is nothing like waking up in the middle of the desert and watching the beautiful sunrise. At night, we had the most incredible view of the sky lit up with stars. It was truly an incredible camping trip and we hope to do it again.

Rianna and David were great hosts! They were very generous of letting us use a table and chairs for our party. We enjoyed the landscape and night views was amazing. Will definitely come back.

Rianna was a wonderful host. We were one of her first guests and already she had a great handle on what it takes to be a great host. It was a special location and convenient to the park entrance. We hope to go back!

This place is amazing. Absolutely stunning views of the sky and mesa. We were so happy to have chosen this site over the more crowded areas near the Grand Canyon and/or Flagstaff.

Rianna and Dave were so nice and welcoming. We ended up hanging out with them during the sunset for pizza and great conversations.

The whole experience felt kinda magical.

Rianna and her husband were fantastic people and hosts. Super accommodating despite my late at night, last minute booking. If it would not have been a little bit of a challenge to find, it wouldn’t have been my kind of place! Directions were thorough and accurate though to be sure. Thank you both for the coffee and company, I wish I could have visited longer.

Can’t recommend this place enough. My husband and I spontaneously added Grand Canyon to our road trip not really knowing where to camp and this was perfect. The host was truly accommodating and super helpful. Met us outside and night and guided us right to our spot. Easy to keep in touch with as well, which is a must for me. About 35-40 minutes from the south rim entrance
