We rented the "Euro" Earthship for a week in order to learn more about this house style and to see if we could accept it as our next house. Aside from personalizing the setup and environment inside the rooms it more than exceeded our expectations. The house is comfortable and spacious and well equipped. We were here in November and...

We were exploring the area, as my wife is writing a book about a post-apocalyptic America - based in Colorado/New Mexico/Kansas.Staying in an Earthship (a self sustaining abode) eerily felt like we were in her novel - she plans to incorporate some of the self-sustaining house ideas as a way people cope in her book. But in the present, it... More

This place just has to be seen to be believed!!! And don't just see it, live it!!! Staying in the Phoenix East Earthship is nothing less than a once-in-a-lifetime experience!!! The photos on the website don't do it justice. I sent photos to a friend - she said it looked like a rainforest, a coloring book and an international art... More

Our family was so excited about Earthships that months ago we reserved the entire Phoenix for two nights. Earthship Biotecture's excellent website only begins to capture the design excellence, function, and beauty of the house, mountain/mesa setting, and what it represents as a global movement for sustainability. The poem below was inspired by our experiences..... we highly recommend Earthships to... More

To really appreciate the uniqueness of an Earthship, one should spend a night. Instead of just a cursory tour seeing the video and photos, one can actually experience what it is like. I chose to stay in the Phoenix, which is a whimsical Gaudiesque building. This house can be subdivided--I only rented out part of the place, the part without... More

We stayed in the Phoenix Earthship for 2 nights in mid-May 2014. We were fascinated by the technology and the amount of work put into this very funky place! A previous guest wrote that the earthship architecture was a cross between the Hobbits and Antoni Gaudi - pretty well sums it up! Loved the greenhouse, not so crazy about the... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in Lemuria in early April. We were both completely impressed. My husband is a licensed builder, a master home inspector and a renewable energy installer. So he was skeptical of the design before we arrived. He came away very impressed. He was most impressed at how comfortable the room temperature was on the... More

I was quite impressed with the work being done at Earthship Biotecture. A dedicated crew of designers and craftsmen have proved that one is capable of living in a self sustaining structure, while recycling cast off materials that would only go to fill over crowded landfills. A visit to Earthship will make it clear that one can live quite nicely... More

I very much enjoyed the tour, video/slide show, and personal question time with a staff member at the Visitors Center. The recycling of materials in the construction of the sustainable homes and the sustainable practices (e.g., solar panels for power, reclaimed water/snow, greenhouse along sunny side of the home) were fascinating to see in practice. As I learned, these homes... More

A truly bizarre experience. This is a really unusual thing to see. People living off the grid in re-used and recycled materials. It is worth checking out. The houses are private, and most of the roads are posted with no trespassing signs. There is the main attraction tour, through a large earth ship, with videos, and a walking tour. The... More
