  • Great House | Fabulous Host!


    The house is completely updated, has cheerful decor , and highly quality brand appliances, including the outdoor grill. The house feels extra spacious due to its generous 12 foot high walls. The house is well stocked, including extra bed linens. The master bed mattress I slept on was amazingly comfortable, and the sheet, blanket, bedcover combo was perfect for finding the right warmth/coolness throughout the night.

    And the kitchen! The coffee and coffee creamer selection is incredible. Vonnie provides both ground coffee and Keurig cup options—including decaf—and a dual Keurig coffee maker that provides both drip/carafe and K-cup brewing options. She also provides a large bowl generously stocked with a surprising variety of packaged snacks that can accommodate both the health conscious travelers and the ones with a bit of a sweet tooth. Vonnie also provides some breakfast goodies, with several options to suit guests’ tastes, to get them started off on their stay.

    The location obviously is not for the person who wants to do a lot of touristy things in a place with a vibrant night culture of fine dining and bars. For those who are interested in exploring the outdoors—or even working remotely in a quiet getaway—it is a great location. There is a dollar store in town that has a nice little supermarket within it that has a good variety of food selections.

    Vonnie is a superb host who is dedicated to ensuring that your stay is a good one. You are in good hands staying at Desert Gem!
