We have one acre of desert that we are turning into a homestead. With the panoramic mountain views and no neighbors but us, you will feel that you are in the middle of nowhere, even though we are only 10 minutes from a big commercial area. The stars at night go on forever in one direction, and in the other shimmer the beautiful lights of the city of Albuquerque.These

We provide an Eco-Friendly composting toilet and water in a jug. However, we are completely off grid, so we do not offer any eletricity, running water or internet at this time. These sites are appropriate for tents only, NOT for pop-up campers and car top tents.
On our off grid homestead, you are welcome to visit with the chickens, take a desert nature walk full of cactus, birds and rabbits or build a camp fire (winds allowing). With a 10 - 30 minute drive you can be at Petroglyph National Monument, Old Town Albuquerque and Coronado Historical Site.
Please note that we are on a dirt road off of a dirt road. These roads can sometimes be difficult for lower cars or some types of RVs.

This was an incredible place to post up for the night! We got in late and we’re greeted by Heidi and Rocky and their lovely kids. Our dogs got to run around together in the morning and we had the chance to meet their new chicks getting ready to go free range. We enjoyed this place so much and definitely intend to come back if we make it back to New Mexico again soon.
Heidi and her family are amazing! Staying on their land was such a treat. They spent the first night we were there sitting around a fire sharing travel stories with us, and their sons came and talked to us as well. Above and beyond does not even begin to describe how much they did to accommodate our needs and make us feel comfortable and welcome. And their place feels like it's remote, but the town is just minutes away. Definitely recommend them to anyone heading to the area.
Heidi and Kahlil were so warm and welcoming! They were kind enough to help me set up my tent when it was difficult due to high winds, and I enjoyed chatting with them. The land was quiet and peaceful (Heard coyotes howling!), but still close by to shopping and attractions. My little hatchback car was able to make it down the gravel and dirt road just fine. If the wind hadn't been so rough, I would have really enjoyed having dinner by the great fire pit! But I still really loved watching the sun set and the moon rise over the Sandia Mountains. It's a really lovely spot!
Heidi, Khalil and their children were so awesome! I enjoyed hearing about all of their traveling experiences, and I am excited to see how their homestead grows. I definitely recommend.
Man, Khalil and Heidi and their family are awesome people! The property was more than accommodating. I showed up on a Sunday night around 730 and Heidi showed me the ropes and we chatted for a bit. Woke up the next morning and had a cup of coffee with Khalil and watched the sunrise over the Sandias. It was awesome! Definitely would stay here again if I made it back this way.
Heidi and Khalil were so warm and welcoming. They ensured we had everything we needed to be comfortable, and their lifestyle and stories were inspiring. They have two really friendly dogs, who kept us company and kept us safe :) No neighbors, private, and close to town. Taking the alternate backroad was much smoother and easier on the car. May ask about that route. Loved the animals and space they have cared for.
Great getaway spot from the city of Albuquerque. The site is clean and simple and the family who owns the land is lovely. Google does not give great directions to the site and it is a long drive to the center of town but it is near many box stores if you need that kind of thing. We would return for the beautiful views and the quiet atmosphere. Thank you for hosting us
