From Quentin Tarantino's "Dusk till Dawn" series which followed the movie.... here now at Shanti community! My place is off-grid and rustic! Only 5 miles from Madrid, NM. It is close to art and culture, great views, and restaurants and dining. You’ll love Shanti because of the views, the quiet peace, the unique experience of off-grid life on a mesa at 6800 feet, and the proximity to the artist village of Madrid. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets).
This space has a mini-kitchenette and wood-burning stove.

Incredible unique comfortable place to stay with incredible location and views. My only advice to other campers is be very careful of the stickers on some of the plants around the site.
We had a unforgettable night at the dusk till dawn bus! The view was amazing and the bus was everything we needed and the stove kept us warm and toasty all night. The only downside was we were just only able to stay one night…
Starlight and firelight
We are from the humid southeast, so the desert is quite a spectacle for us. The Dusk till Dawn Bus gave us a fanciful and cozy couple of overnights. On the first, the stars were stunning and we appreciated the amenities – very comfy bed, the beautiful sunrise, the stove for making our coffee and breakfast.
Spent the day in Santa Fe, and the next night the wind picked up and gusted over 50 miles an hour, so we built a fire and played cards inside and stayed cozy. I was glad we ordered some firewood bundles, and we almost use them up. I had to get up a couple of times in the night to stoke the fire, and went right back to sleep.
We would love to come back to visit again!
This place was awesome. Little toasty in the summer time so ensure you have some stuff to do during the day to stay cool. Perfect set up to be out in the desert and see some stars. Unique and beautiful! Will never forget it!
Love this spot on the mesa! I've been a few times and love the simple and thoughtful accommodations with the peaceful view. Absolutely suggest you stop to stay here for a couple nights or however long you need!
The bus was lovely! We were able to cook dinner in the bus, have a wood fire, and see stars from the bed all night. The bus was very clean and well organized, and we loved hanging out in the hammock. There is a canyon hike down the road that we really enjoyed. The outhouse was also extremely clean.
As stated in the description the access road is very rough. I was able to manage it with a 2wd Rav4, but be sure to take it slow (and take a 4wd vehicle if you can).
