  • The Boulder House is our new Vacation Paradise

    "THANK YOU so much for what was one of the best weekends me and my friends have had in years. The house was BEAUTIFUL and perfect for us. We loved every minute of it, used it fully and felt very at home there. We also made every effort to leave it as we found it and hope you will find we had great respect for the property. We had such a lovely time in fact that we want to make this an annual trip — we'd love to rent the house again next year around the same time if it all works out. I also want to rent this space for future artist retreats and workshops. I just love it. The art, the colors, the energy, the pool, such a delicious experience! Thank you!!!!!"

  • Far Exceeded Expectations

    "I don't know what I could write that other reviewers haven't already written! Jackrabbit Wash is the perfect high desert retreat. And Aaron is a wonderful owner. The airline cancelled and rescheduled my flight; Aaron was terrific and accommodating about the change in arrival day and time. In fact, from my first inquiry months ago and throughout my stay, Aaron was a helpful, cheerful, unimposing owner Jackrabbit Wash is one of those rare homes that is even better in person than the stunning photographs show. Modern in this case means warm, welcoming and integrated into the high desert environment. The clean, elegant lines of this architectural treasure give the home the appearance of soaring on the hillside. The purity of the home's design both inside and out and long, cool lap pool is calming and simply, stunningly beautiful. One of my favorite memories is the way the floor to ceiling walls of windows reflected the interior at night and the landscape during the day, evoking a feeling of spaciousness and dissolving the transition between outside to inside. The alternating natural colors of stone "shingles" offered a gentle visual rhythm, while the water from the lap pool reflected in softly-lit ripples on the ceiling during the day. I found the home equisitely peaceful. I'd love to come back when outside temps are more conducive to swimming in the lap pool, but other reviewers are right about the starry skies. I was fortunate to be here during a full moon. Simply incredible. Jackrabbit Wash reminds me of a poem by Li Po about mountains: "The birds have vanished in the sky, and now the last cloud drains away. We sit together, the mountain and I until only the mountain remains." One could replace "high desert" for the word "mountain" and understand what staying at Jackrabbit Wash is like."

  • 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 Bungalow-a retro delight

    "This is my second year coming to this particular unit. I love this bungalow! The value for the money is amazing. It has an open floor plan and is quite spacious! It has loads of charm and it is in excellent condition, clean and well maintained. I would most definately recommen this place to a friend or relative. It's within walking distance to the hippest part of JT, where several restaurants are located. The owner is trustworthy, and timely in all of his communications. He is a pleasure to do buisness with. The photos are accurate, and the place is even more charming in person!"
