Our experience was a little unusual because we saw no one at the Hideaway during our. Spin and Margie were gone, presumably taking a vacation. CJ made sure the unit, #4, was open, but we never saw her and there were no other guests. A very quite getaway, which we enjoyed. We hiked trails at Joshua Tree, which we loved,... More

We've spent 4 nights at Spin and Margie's and it was absolutely perfect. The Village of Joshua Tree, full of great eateries and coffe houses in like 5 km away, and so is the Visitors Center. We had the Desert Nomad suite, incluiding large bedroom/livingroom, fully equiped kitchen, bath tub ánd shower. We always left early (around 7.30 am) to... More

Great place for a quiet and restful stay. Perfectly situated between gates into Joshua Tree National Park, and convenient to both Joshua Tree and Twenty Nine Palms. Spin and Margie make you feel like family. Definitely will be back!!

Maybe the best place we stayed in our Californian tour. The suite itself (we stayed in no. 1 - four of us, which was a little cramped but quite fine - was gorgeously equipped, full of lovely little arty touches - the very opposite of mass-produced hotelery. The a/c struggled mightily against the colossal heat outside and it was still... More

This group of bungalows are tucked away from the road and offer the true "getaway" feel. We stayed in #3. It was spotless. It had a comfortable queen bed with another convertible sofa in the next room. There was a kitchen with coffee, tea, and all the basics of a furnished apartment. There was also a common area outside to... More

We absolutely loved our stay. The accommodations aren't fancy, but are drenched with desert atmosphere--corrugated steel, painted tiles, plantings galore, desert photos, funky barbed wire art, and the location--750 feet off the road, with only Joshua Tree park behind. Every night at sunset, we'd take our drinks and amble a couple of steps up the sand road beside the place... More

The rooms were very clean and quiet. The grounds were kept perfectly and it is a short drive from park. I only saw one other guest and they were nice enough to give us their parking pass to the park as they were leaving and it was for a week. Very cool place! Highly recommend. We will be returning here... More

We had 4 people in 2 rooms for only one night. All we could say is, "we are coming back for more time here". The property, our rooms, everything was perfect. We played bocce ball, we relaxed on the patios, we took pictures of the "art", we slept wonderfully, and loved the choice of dvds available. Though, i have been... More

Spin & Margie's has a great feel from the moment you enter the gate. Very eclectic, but warm, both the landscaping and design. The rooms are fully stocked with everything you might need and the beds are comfortable. The hosts were very helpful, as well. We stayed in the larger room #1-there were 4 of us and we felt like...

While visiting Joshua Tree NP we stayed at Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway - this B&B really deserves the name: very quiet, nicely decorated rooms - we felt like being home. The hosts were very nice and helpful.
