Lovelight Ranch is our 5-acre hippie paradise, centrally located in the Coachella Valley. We are near the amazing 1000 Palms Oasis and Coachella Valley Preserve for great day hikes and wildlife viewing, and also near the splendors of Joshua Tree and the high desert. We are within a half hours drive of Palm Springs, recently voted the hippest mid-sized city in the country and Coachella, home of the Coachella and StageCoach Festivals. We are also very near Sam's Hot Water Spa, a chemical free hot springs soaking experience which is the perfect ending to a day of hiking, climbing or just sight-seeing.

I cannot recommend this stay enough. Lovelight Ranch is so warm and welcoming, thank you Mikey and JoAnn! The subterranean structure is so freaking rad! It's cozy, comfortable, and filled with awesome vibes. All the dogs on the ranch were so precious and hilarious to play with all day. My dog doesn't always get along with other dogs, but this pack welcomed her in! George is a sweet old brindle mix, Pougee (not sure how to spell it) is another sweet face that would swing by and check in on us, Deuce is the best fetcher there is, and their newest addition Alice is a cockerspaniel/chihuahua mix puppy with all the love and kisses to give!

The kitchen is great, everything you need including a large fridge/freezer. Full working bathroom, and shower to wash off the heat and desert dust. There's a lot on the property to explore and hang out in, they've set up a small gallery of their cool works, plus a comfy reading nook, and other areas to escape the heat.

A few tips: if you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs as their neighbors have a few roosters who like to go off at odd hours in the night. Also suggest bug spray as we got a few mosquito bites.

What a charming little spot. The hosts were very sweet and there were lots of little places to escape the desert sun. They also have lots of dogs, which was an added bonus for me.

WOW, I’m grinning just thinking about my short stay. Mikey & JoAnne are fun and kind, and the outsider art desert oasis they’ve made is incredible. The experience comes with big night skies, a pet tortoise, an above-ground pool, lounge areas, outdoor kitchen and drumming. I can’t wait to come back and bring friends.

An absolutely beautiful place to stay. The hosts welcomed us and gave us a tour of the property, and the dogs were super friendly and a welcome bonus. I’m definitely staying here again next time I’m in the area.

Hello Mikey and Joanna
Thank you so much for your hospitality!! Me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the desert isle. It was such an unique experience sleeping under the night sky!! The winds were well protected by the thatched roof and they sounded like soothing beaches waves and we slept well. I am sure I will back again!!
Thank you also for accommodating us in the artist den for the second night!
Best
