Mac was extremely friendly and accommodating.
It was our first time doing something like this, we wanted to get a good view of the stars without light pollution.
Mac has created a pool for his guests with a cute shower to cleanse before and after entering the pool.

He also has a more private outdoor shower in the parking entrance so take sandals for your walk there.

The tent itself was huge, very roomy and we were so looking forward to the night winds and feels of nature.

The only thing that we were not comfortable with was nature being too close for comfort. Somehow insects came into the room (we closed very well before and after entering our lotus tent). I would suggest bringing repellent and something to sleep over your head to keep critters out.

Next time we will be better prepped with googles advice since we cant avoid nature when you are in nature.

“Use insect repellents and mosquito nets if your tent doesn't have one built in. Burning mosquito and citronella coils or candles can help keep them away in the evenings, and DEET is known to be a very effective deterrent”

So if you are a weenie like us maybe find something not so nature focused but if you dont care about insects then this is for you.

Id come back with more preparedness for insects because Mac was super hospitable and i love the creativity for the space with the addition of the pool and hammocks.

Generally very cool spot with incredible stargazing. Mac was very welcoming to the space and shared some nice context around the history of the camp.

That said, the tent itself was not tied down well and caused a ton of noise the entire night, especially when windy. Indoor space was also not super clean. I got the impression I was the first person using the tent in a while and that Mac hadn’t got the chance to fiinish set up the way he normally would do.

Loved this place! Bed was comfy, decor was so cute, had a nice porch area where we could watch the amazing star show at night. They had chairs and a small table and cute furniture inside. It was such a cool vibe to sleep in the desert in a tent like this.

It was our first time “glamping/camping” ever! We had a nice time & the accommodations were perfection! Mac was a great host. We’ll definitely be returning. Also, we’ve never see a more beautiful view of the stars. 😊

it is a very nice place and it is still developing. We had a good stay just overnight. The only issue I have is the toilets are a little far away from the tent so it's hard especially when you have to use it at night time. Second, we found hair on the bed and pillow. Luckily we brought our own cover and blanket. No place to cook yet but I know that it is still on the works. It's very windy so ve prepared. ❤️
