This was our second stay in Painted Desert. Last time was in the summer so we were a little worried about staying warm in mid-October. Despite being in the 40’s at night, it was very comfortable and our stay was even better than the last. Lex took good care of us and Bay View never disappoints. We can’t wait to go back.

Walkable energetic neighborhood; you can get food delivered if you don’t want to venture out. All of the comforts of home without any of the usual distractions. It’s the perfect cozy space to unwind and unplug. The patio area feels private and secure even though you’re in the heart of Bay View. I adored the aesthetic, and Lexis was an incredible host.

This was one of the best stays on any peer to peer rental site we have ever experienced! The vibe the host has cultivated is absolutely breath taking. We enjoyed the whole site experience and the neighborhood it was located in. I will be telling everyone who will listen to stay here!

If you’re looking for comfortable glamping in a cool urban neighborhood, don’t miss out on this listing! The motor home “Janice” was spacious, had tons of period-specific /homey touches, and was completely unique! Very comfortable - tons of pillows, seating areas, and fans/vents to circulate air. Access to an indoor bathroom in a building less than 100 yards away was super convenient!

While I can wax poetic for a while on how great our stay was, I do have 2 gripes: 1) The was only one towel we could find for showering. It might to nice to have a couple more available? And 2) I wish the shower in the RV was explained more. Don’t get me wrong - Lexis’ guidebook was INCREDIBLE. The only thing it was missing was info about how the water source worked. I was looking to simply shampoo and condition my hair and in (what seemed like) 5-7 minutes the water was completely out for the rest of the night. My traveling partner was out of luck for a shower. However, Lexis provided an outdoor sink that helped wash off some things. So there was a silver lining!

But if you get anything out of my long diatribe… book this stay. You’ll have a blast, feel inspired, and enjoy yourself. I’m excited to return.

We had an incredible weekend staying in Painted Dessert (RV)! Located next to the heart of Bayview, it was also close to large parks and the beach. We did it all and at some amazing restaurants / drank at some cool bars. Coming back to the RV was always a treat since the outdoor area was secluded and just looking at Painted Dessert brings a smile to your face.
