À propos de ce logement

"BirdNest" is fashioned from used shipping container — INSULATED offering cooler stay in summer & warmer in winter! Visitors are encouraged to participate in OUTSIDE desert life: 5 acres across street offers privacy + breath-taking view — walk down the road provides XLNT view of Joshua Tree (saves on using gas) UpStairs SittingRoom can be used for best connection to WIFI (which is also partially available inside BirdNest when door is left OPEN). Minimum price: only $100 for 3 NIGHTS STAY!!!

Le logement

Minimum conveniences are provided: running cold water only (although in summer warm enough for a quick shower in tub provided) soaps, cooking utensils, foodstuffs, bed, computer desk, music & light console + local information on places & events provided. (PLEASE NOTE: even though water can always be can be heated in Microwave, all running water is shut off after sundown in winter during freezing temperatures.) Queen bed accomodates two. Taking desert walks safely in the area is possible & encouraged... remembering that desert BELONGS to snakes, coyotes & other creatures (Non-venomous critters, such as: ants, beetles or butterfly may occasionally find their way into BirdNest since insecticides are NOT encouraged!) Yucca Valley town shops are only 7 miles away - JoshuaTree Village is basically equidistant, the park slightly further.

Accès des voyageurs

Since the private driveway uphill to the 'Bird Nest' is too narrow to manage a car turn-around at top, driving uphill BACKWARDS is recommended as otherwise, driving down BACKWARDS will be necessary which may be tricky in the dark! Therefore, you may consider leaving car on parking lot BELOW the uphill driveway & walk the 10 steps to the Bird Nest. [Please avoid disrupting the desert ecosystem by driving off road. Thank you for respecting the Desert!] There is also an "Upstairs SittingRoom" where WIFI access is guaranteed day or night. Five acres of virgin desert land across the street also belong to me and are yours to enjoy at any time.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

There is an upper leval "sitting space" in the shade of the fruitless Mulberry tree which can be shared by both host and guests. Also a hammock in this area is available (in hot weather only) either for resting or sleeping, as desired by Guest. I can be reached by phone at ANY TIME to help guest out as necessary—Thank You!

Autres remarques

Toilet paper is NOT to be flushed into toilet (a request frequently made in many bathrooms in this area.) All paper is to be put into wastebasket provided & can be taken along with any other trash which visitor takes away upon departure: "Carry It In, Carry It Out!" as the saying goes! (Except for recyclables which host will collect after departure of visitor.) THANK YOU.

Olivia is lovely, an original. Sociable, with lots of stories but also respected my space. The container provides a souped-up camping-type experience but with an extremely comfy bed, flushing loo, running water, sink, cooking facilities, fridge etc. It has a bit of a junky, hippy-vibe - cosy with everything you need in it. Everything - bedding, towels, kitchen equipment - was super clean. But it's not a 5-star luxury hotel so go somewhere else if you want that sort of thing. No hot running water, but you can warm some or on a hot day the cold water is hot enough to have a mini-shower or, if you want, there are hot showers for a few dollars in Joshua Tree. Fridge kept all my food and drinks very chilled. I didn't get wi-fi in my container (just as Olivia advertises) but sitting in the outside 'living room' up the stairs and on the higher level, near Olivia's home was a lovely thing in itself - great views, expansive skies - and the wi-fi is nice and strong up there. Try the Crossroads Cafe and Pappy and Harriet's if you are headed out. The park is nearby and splendid. A down to earth and magic desert experience.

Wonder how many people will know what is a "flushing loo"... but THX for not mentioning your struggle with the desert bugs who were attracted by the lights!

Don't stay here it is a metal box that is illegally wired that will electrocute you when you plug microwave in. There is no hot water to cook or shower. The woman will tell you to use a plug up burner because there is no stove. And no shower or bath tub. No hot water she suggests you boil water to wash yourself at the sink. There was a dirty tampon from someone else in the garbage bag. and a metal dye vat that there are mice trash and food everywhere despite $20 cleaning fee. There was no toilet paper from the first day and every time you touch the walls you're going to get a shock

Seems Mia is riddled with BAD LUCK! She had issues no one else has had... (I wonder if she has issues everywhere she goes??) In any case, her evaluation is her evaluation! If I receive another such evaluation, I shall NO LONGER accept ANY guests here, PERIOD!

The Birdhouse is a great spot to hang your head during a visit to J.Tree! A really cool example of efficient, self-sufficient living! Olivia has done a great job making the birdhouse feel like a home.

Olivia is an amazing host! Such a generous and caring woman. She always made sure that I was comfortable, happy, and safe. I'm thrilled that I chose to stay at the BirdNest. The inside was extremely comfortable and the decor was GREAT. Furnished with everything necessary to stay and cook for myself for a handful of days. The surrounding land is beautiful, definitely explore all of the cacti and plants on property. Has great outdoor seating options, great for stargazing. The BirdNest is up on a hill away from all of the commotion of the main road down below, very quiet and relaxing. However it is less than a 5 minute drive downhill to the main road so it is very easy to find food, coffee, groceries etc. Great location extremely close to Joshua Tree National Park. Only an hour or so from Palm Springs, & a couple hours from LA and Salvation Mountain. Definitely recommend for a great desert experience!!!!
