  • Best Winter Break Ever

    "My husband and I spent four nights at the Rio House with our dog, Schnitzel. We had a wonderful time. The house is lovely, clean, and comfortable, with great indoor and outdoor seating. We spent much of our time in the backyard, either in the hot tub or sitting and reading (during the day) or having cocktails (at night) on the comfy outdoor furniture. While we visited nearby JT, we found we had more fun walking with the dog up the dirt road and around the property. So many jackrabbits! In addition to the rabbits, we saw and heard a little band of coyotes, who came right by the fence. We generally try to meet three criteria for vacation houses: fenced-in yard, private hot tub, and king-sized bed. The yard and the hot tub exceeded our expectations. And we decided to compromise on the bed since the place looked so great when we were deciding on a rental. We'd probably be back every year for sure if there was a king in one of the bedrooms ... But it's hard to beat star-watching in that amazing hot tub while listening to the coyotes yipping right on the other side of the fence!"

  • Desert Dessert

    "This Dome Home is a dream come true. We celebrated a pre wedding fete with some of our closest friends here over a long weekend & could not have had a more fun & relaxing time. You have to hike while you are here! The park is amazing & right in the back yard. We did not have to drive anywhere over the 4 days/3 much to do between swimming, sunning, hiking, lounging, bbq, sauna, spa, games, etc. None of us wanted to leave! Thank you for sharing your dream home!"

    "What a wonderful long weekend! I'd been having writers block & struggling with a script for months in L.A. but 3 days in this lovely house in the most gorgeous landscape imaginable was exactly what I needed to get my work finished. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

  • Incredible Experience

    "The pictures don't even come close to giving this property justice (I don't think any picture could). My friends and I had such an amazing time here. Tia and Brant were such amazing hosts, and did such a great job with this home. You really feel the love and care put into all of the intricate details. My friends and I didn't even leave the house to the park! The backyard is a surreal, stunning desert oasis. We spent both nights stargazing by the fire pit, sitting in the hammock, and drinking good wine. Beautiful time! We will definitely be returning to one of the most inspiring locations I've ever been to."
