Cutest little casita - it was perfect. We made the trip out to the desert just to see the comet (perfectly visible with the naked eye from right outside the casita). Unfortunately, we didn't get to take advantage of the pool or firepit - maybe next time! The casita and the bathroom were super clean (I've never seen a hipcamp with a cleaner bathroom). Darin is really nice and friendly. I wish we could have spent more time here - this place is a gem.

Darin’s casita is a gem! Its cool (AC!), and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is incredibly clean. We loved using the firepit. We’ll definitely come back to Darin’s next time we’re visiting Joshua Tree.
