The Desert Isle
Outdoor Confort
Very cute space! Hosts were very hospitable, and you can see their creativity throughout the property. The pups were sweet as well. This space is what glamping should be. If you’re looking to be outside with the comfort of a bed, this is the place to go!

Camping on Mikey’s land was such an amazing experience. Being in the middle of the desert is already pretty extraordinary, and when we arrived it was around dusk, so it was nice, breezy, and very beautiful. Mikey gave us a tour of the property and it was awesome! There were lots of plants, and so many cool and unique art pieces that he and his wife have created—all stunning. It was such a fun place to stay, but also had whatever we needed, with a nice bathroom, private shower, and kitchen appliances. The general vibe of their land is communal and welcoming, which made us feel very comfortable and very safe. I highly recommend a stay here. (Plus the dogs are super cute and friendly)

Desert magic
Mikey is an incredible host. Laid back. Things just… work. I had a grand time - and the star gazing from the lovelight ranch is magical. It’s rustic. It’s real. It’s true. It felt like a burning man camp that just lives there, in the desert. Glorious. May the twine of time have me return soon. Thank you Mikey. ✨

Lovelight RV #2
Just a bit funky, but sweet. We appreciated the uniqueness and creativity that was to be found at every little nook and corner. For us, the lack of cookie-cutter features was welcome, as we were welcomed!

The Stargazer Bed
Absolutely recommend!
I loved the set up of the stargazer bed! I also had access to a very clean bathroom, outdoor shower, and fridge! Mikey and his wife were super pleasant and friendly and they have the cutest pups! It was a beautiful view as well.
