Here at Nest In Harmony location, we value natural living and alternative living styles and will be featuring different living structures. I lived and worked in the Grand Canyon National Park recently where I was a carpenter and tour guide and hosted many Couchsurfing guests from around the world. I may be able to answer some of your questions or give you resources to learn. I am friends with many locals from the Canyon and around the area and they may be visiting. Cats, chickens, a donkey, llama and alpaca will be on the property. Please do not feed Kulo, but you can feed the others animals carrots, fruits and veggies. It is peaceful with no sounds of cars and no light pollution to block the incredible views of the stars after a clear sunset view. Juniper trees offer shade in the days and privacy. You may feel more connected to nature as you hear the birds and see the free range cattle in the distance. The neighbors in the distance are not easily viewed from the property, and they are peaceful and quiet as well.

What an amazing place and an even more amazing host in Shane. I stayed in the bus and it was clean, and very comfortable. Shane was welcoming and we ended up hanging out and having some great conversations over the campfire. His dog Koolo is rad and I can’t wait to come back and stay at the Nest again. This was my last stop on a 3 week road trip and it was the highlight of my trip. Thanks Shane!

The Nest is a magical place where you can connect with nature and get away from it all. We stayed in the school bus, which is private site very close to all the amenities and right next to the farm animals (no bad smells). We enjoyed feeding the llama, alpaca, donkey, and chickens! Our favorite animal however was probably Beau the cat. He kept us company in the kitchenette, where we had all of the fixings to make some amazing meals. They have cooking oils and spices along with pots, pans, utensils, and pretty much anything you would need to cook. The shower is also in the kitchenette and does actually have hot water! It was nice to shower with a skylight open to the beautiful sky! We saw soooo many stars ...it was amazing. And the sunrises over the mountains were gorgeous. The school bus itself was equipped with a propane heater, which was amazing and luxurious for our stay in late December. We had a private fire pit as well. You’ll want to bring headlamps and maybe some lanterns for backup in case the solar energy runs out. We would suggest bringing your own battery pack to charge any phones you need. We took several day trips to the Grand Canyon from the Nest for some amazing hikes and sunsets! Totally recommended staying at the Nest with Shane, Brandon, and the animals! You won’t regret it!

Alpaca! Sunrise New Years Eve 2020 at the Nest.Look for the signs like this one around the property with instructions on how to use the systems they’ve put in place. Llama and Donkey!
