Woman traveling alone !
I loved Steve’s quirky property, with his converted container home. Great camping with hook ups and the outdoor shower was awesome with piping hot water ! Loved the feeling of spaciousness and the close proximity to the town but far enough away to feel away from it all ! and super close to the park (not busy Entrance !) Steve was a great host, a cool guy, considerate and super helpful yet giving you space to do your own thing too. No frills fancy but a freakin awesome place ! Oh and did I mention his wonderful dogs !! I went with a friend but stayed on on my own coz I felt super safe and protected 🙏

Great night in the desert :-)
Great spot for our RV. A night in the desert with a nice pool and hot tub to see the stars. Great sunset too. Steve was very nice with us and has anticipated everything. We recommend!

We had an excellent time at El Ranchito! Steve was a fantastic host, the campsite was perfect for our trip, and we loved relaxing in the pool. Highly recommend staying here.

Amazing stars from the hot tub.
The suite was great! I was there in june so very hot but the AC held up super well. The daybed outside was a wonderful way to escape the heat along with the pool. At night the views of the stars were amazing from the hot tub. The place was perfectly located, just 15 mins from the entrance to joshua tree and 10 from restaurants in 29 palms.

Steve’s place was our favorite camping spot on our ten day California road trip. The Joshua tree night sky was incredible, especially from the hot tub. I can’t wait to come back and stay in one of the container rooms!

Beautiful and clean camping site
We had an amazing time camping on Steve’s land! The directions and communication was very clear from the start, so we had no trouble finding our way to the camp. Steve also answered all our questions very promptly. The camp itself is one of the best camps we have stayed at. There is a pool and a jacuzzi and many flat camp grounds to choose from with fire pits. Everything was clean and there was always toilet paper in the porter potty etc. Unfortunately we encountered a little desert storm at night so we could not make a fire due to the winds but it was ok, just something to watch out for before you leave and when you set up camp, as your tent can blow away if you don’t put something heavier inside and attach it well (the winds we’re about 60mph that night). Watching the sunset in the jacuzzi was pretty magical and so worth it! We would definitely stay here again or try one of the container rooms that were on the camp site for rent.

High Desert Luxury w/ Pool & Wi-Fi
This place has everything you need to enjoy the desert, and stay comfortable. Remote work? Great Wi-Fi! Looking to relax after a day of hiking? A pool and two spas! Like to start your morning with a workout? Mini gym! ATVs and horses? Yup! This place has it all! The beds have the softest linens and the mattresses are a dream. AC keeps it cool, plenty of windows for airflow and patio seating to enjoy the sunrise and sunset every day. The host has thought of everything you could need for your stay. Cannot wait to come back and do it again.

Very relaxing
It`s very peaceful and quiet area just what we were looking for, perfect for stargazing, relaxing and spending quality time with friends and family. The porta potty was very clean that`s the only amenity we used. We didn't use the pool nor jacuzzi since we had booked it last minute and we weren't prepared with bathing suits but it would`ve been nice too relax in the jacuzzi, maybe next time.

We had such a nice time here. Very good vibes from the host and the property is kept clean and has lots of amenities. We didn’t have a chance to go in the pool or hot tub but hope to visit again and do that because both looked great. Saying hi to the horses was an added bonus. Campsite had a fire pit which was nice to use as well. Overall really loved it here and would like to come back!

We had a great stay with Steve. The area for campers was beautifully and thoughtfully laid out over a spacious area. The views of the desert from our van were lovely. Steve also took pains to offer appreciated amenities, such a private shower and hot tub. We also appreciated his responsiveness if we had questions or needed anything. We wish that we'd had more time to enjoy all that he offered!

So nice to have a warm shower and a hot tub after a day of hiking in the park! We also enjoyed the hammocks! Still felt like remote camping but with some perks!

Desert Camping on a Ranch!
Clean, well organized, excellent facilities, very friendly, fantastic location. We were looking for something quick and easy to drive with with our VW van, kids, and dogs, and then someone to help us know the area. Steve is very friendly and it's a cool scene at the property. Recommended!

The best!
I love this part of the desert. I know this and surrounding desert area very, very well. This part of the desert is Stark, quiet, open desert with huge skies. Huge skies that translate into some epic stargazing come nightfall. There are several campgrounds with ample space, each has their own fire pit. The Porta potty is nearby and was very clean. We were there for four days and we used the spas a couple times each day. Every time they were hot and very clean. Please make sure to shower before going in the spas like they ask you to. It makes for some nice clean spas. We used the spas in the nude and sunbathed naked at our campsite under the desert sun. We felt welcome and appreciated. We were left alone to enjoy our stay but knew we could ask for assistance at anytime. The hosts are cool cats with history in the founding of burning man. They’ve hosted all kinds of interesting retreats on their land including nude, silent, tantra, sex positive etc. Such a cool place. Grateful.

King-Sized Shipping Container Suite
We very much enjoyed our stay in the king suite. Nothing like a jacuzzi in 30° weather under the stars. Saw one of the best meteors I’ve ever seen. The sky was not the darkest because of the lights around but it was still pretty dark. The suite was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Bring all of your chargers there’s no shortage of outlets 😂. Thanks again, we’ll definitely be back one day!

This is a very unique camping experience! It’s rustic, quiet and remote. We loved the outdoor hot tub and shower! It’s located close to the north entrance to Joshua Tree park, which we liked.

Enchanting space in open desert
This is an awesome place to stay in the desert. The hot tubs and other outdoor areas totally exceeded my expectations. The Ranch House is basically a full studio apartment with two beds, very comfortable! Easy access to the oasis (northeast) entrance to the park, and there are several restaurants nearby in downtown twentynine palms. The town of Joshua Tree is also not far with more restaurants and shops.

Natures Chill Playground :)
Okay, where do I even begin. This trip was magical, easy place to find, good in between of remote and close to the main highway. Steve was awesome, he offered great places to visit, in regards to hikes, climbing locations, and local eateries. He was super chill & welcoming, even really helpful! He helped our neighboring campers out from getting stuck in the sand/loose dirt. Which is something to keep in mind when driving your car into the property, but comes with camping/territory. Host gave a lot of space in regards to interaction, which was nice, yet attentive if you reached out. Awesome views from the shower, and oh jeez... the bathroom, which was a porty potty, but more so could be described as a royal throne - meaning it was super clean. Lol! Stargazing here was memorable, enjoying sights from the pool and jacuzzi, however, the real gem here was the experience of stargazing from the hammocks. Steve has built a little nature playground that was comfy and so welcoming for like minded climbers and campers. Coming back for those hammocks and starry sky. ^_^
