“Casa Agave” - At Inkopah Spirit Retreat is a small house project turning a converted “Shipping Container” into a living space. This unique living space is part of In-Ko-Pah Spirit Retreat an environmentally friendly space on 10 acres off the utility grid and located in far E. San Diego County High Desert area of Jacumba Hot Springs, CA 91934. Not far from the U.S. Mexican Border. Considered part of the In-Ko-Pah Mountains. On the Western border of this property you will have million dollar view of Table Mountain, a sacred Native American ceremonial ground on BLM public lands. To the North is the beginning Anza Borrego State Park, to the South you can see the U.S./Mexico border fence and the East you can see Imperial Valley and Salton Sea. In-Ko-Pah Spirit Retreat creates it's own energy using wind and solar and has clean, mineral rich well water .Dubbed Casa Agave because of the Agave or Century Plant that is specific to the Southwestern United States and Mexico and grows profusely in this area. The agave can grow up to 30 feet and was a staple of the indigenous people of this area providing them with: sweetener, medicine, soap, needles, thread, rope, thatching and food. The agave is also used in making tequila. Wildlife abounds in the high desert with many species of: birds, lizards, snakes, rabbits, fox, big horn sheep, tarantella, coyotes, bob cats and mule deer, just to name a few. My favorite and most prevalent are the: Quail, Rattle Snakes, Road Runners and Humming Birds. The plant life in this transitional area is very diverse. There are many great places to hike in this area: Table Mountain, Round Mountain, Smugglers Cave, Valley of the Moon just to name a few. Also the Little Jacumba Lake which is fed by Natural Hot Mineral Springs is open to the public for Swimming & Kayaking. To get to Casa Agave/In-Ko-Pah Spirit you will be traveling 1.6 miles on a dirt road with some bumps & ruts, so be prepared. When it rains the road can get slick and 4 or all wheel drive might be necessary and in some areas the dirt turns to clay and vehicles may get stuck.

Casa Agave was the perfect getaway. It is beautiful, quiet, and serene - the desert takes care of you like no other and so does Greg!! He was such a wonderful host and had so many wonderful stories that brought his campground to life! There are so many places to explore and Casa Agave is the perfect place to come back to after your many adventures in the desert. If you are looking for that off-the-grid reset that we all need - look no further. I could not recommend this experience more - there is no place like In Ko Pah retreat!!

Greg was a very kind, informative and welcoming host. The finished shipping container is well appointed for all your glamping needs. The surrounding environs are stunning and imbued with natural energy. It was the perfect escape for our anniversary.

Thank you Trevor for your kind words. It was a pleasure hosting you and Carline although the visit was too short. Hoping you both will be able to visit again.
