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. We offer accommodations ranging from tiny cabins, to camping - please read our listings for amenity information. Guests love staying here "We had the most amazing time at Mikey’s place. Spiritual, reflective, and beautiful. The dogs and Rocky were the best! Mountain Views didn’t hurt (; we will definitely be back…Mikey was a welcoming and generous host. We stayed in Desert Isle and had a mystical time. You won’t regret staying here!"

Unique and peaceful stay
Hippie paradise! Loved our stay at the Lovelight Ranch with the nicest hosts ever and their 3 awesome pups. The place is more eclectic and cool than anywhere we’ve been, with the most creative outside decor from all over. We plan on coming back for sure :) Thank you for a great experience!

Mikey was such an amazing host. My dad and my baby sisters came to visit me in the US for the first time since I’ve moved here and we did Christmas on the road in an RV. We had a beautiful time on Mikey’s land. Our entire family, including the dogs, felt at home. Mikey gave me and my baby sisters classes in drumming. He provided us with delicious coffee and wood for our fire pit. His land is full on wanders to discover. It’s an amazing place to bring your family and just be 🧡 I will be back very shortly 🧡

Mikey was an inviting host and Love Light Ranch is such a fun, quirky, relaxing place to stay. The outdoor kitchen saved us as we forgot our gas adapter for our grill at home. It is fully stocked with anything you need, including a microwave, grill, stovetop, and toaster. His dogs were a great addition too!

Loved our stay!
Mikey and Joanne are amazing hosts! Very warm and kind. We were greeted by them and their amazing dogs at the gate….given a tour of the property and told we could park anywhere that suited us. We had power and even did a load of laundry (thank you). They had a sky gazing deck and an outdoor kitchen. lots of other fun structures and beautiful art! Love the hospitality! We will be back!

Amazing stay!
Mikey and his wife were wonderful hosts! Had a great time falling asleep looking at the stars in the stargazer spot. Their dogs are very sweet too! I was looking enough to see all their amazing art too. I'm going to come back to this spot for sure. What a great stay. The bed is super comfortable too.

Love the dessert isle site. It's cozy, lots of room. Mickey is a warm and laid back host. Need him? He's there. Otherwise he's just around somewhere. So dog friendly that my dogs decided they owned the place.

Mikey's property is amazing. Plenty of space to have privacy and common place,s including an art galler,y to explore. Wonderful host, very personable. Just wish I had more time to spend there but I was passing through from JT to Salton Sea. Well organized and great communication. Strongly recommend spending at least two nights.

Great pet-friendly camping
We enjoyed very much staying at Desert Isle in Mikey's land. Mikey and his wife were very friendly and helpful, the desert isle and the farm are great, and the local dogs are very cute (our dogs enjoyed playing with them).

FAV spot of all time. THE STARS!
Shouting from the ROOF TOPS… literally… this place is one of my FAVORITE stays of all my life… and I’ve explored quite a unique array. Mikey’s space is so thoughtful, so homey in the strangest desert way, so magical, perfect and also with all the potential for big community magnitude and definitely deserves the love and praise.

We had the most amazing time at Lovelight! We were welcomed after a long day of travel by Mikey and his sweet dogs. They took us on a tour of the incredible property…an outdoor kitchen, shower, flushing toilet and sink, art gallery, even a pool! We ended up staying around the next morning just to go for a dip and explore the interesting place. The only thing we would’ve changed would be to stay longer! One night wasn’t enough. We absolutely loved it there. So unique and cozy. Will definitely go again!

We loved our time at the Lovelight Ranch!! The campsite is really nicely decorated with amazingg art pieces and nature! We ended up spending the day at the campsite instead of visiting Joshua tree bc there was so much to do like using the pizza oven or spending time in their pool. Mikey and his wife were welcoming, and their dogs running around the campsite were super friendly and cute! I loved the views from the stargazer bed! Fs going back soon!!

Best Hipcamp Ever!!!
We absolutely loved staying at Mikey's Hipcamp! The rooftop bed was such a fun experience. We saw a few shooting stars at night and the desert winds really do keep you cool while you sleep. The dogs on site are some of the sweetest ones you'll ever meet and Mikey is an incredibly kind host! We definitely plan on returning to this Hipcamp.

The Desert Isle
Desert Oasis in the Desert
Hello, This place is a absolutely amazing and I would high recommend. The location was east to drive to, beautiful, secluded, but also close enough to enjoy a morning in Palm Springs or a full day at Joshua Tree. The hosts were helpful, kind, welcoming, and very accommodating. From stars, pool, spacious area, common cooking areas (pizza oven and fridge :)), to a little dog pool, and amazing art, this place was definitely a desert oasis. Beautiful Location, kind and welcoming host, adorable friendly dogs, dog friendly (I brought my two dogs) and secluded enough to have privacy but enough community area for it to feel welcoming- I loved this place and hope to come visit very soon :))
